SPECTACULAR COUNTRY RETREAT, MIJAS, COSTA DEL SOL
FINCA SAN ANTON
Beautiful, private 1 bedroom apartment on an artist's estate perched high on a plateau with totally unobstructed, 360-degree views of the entire Coast, Gibralter, and on a clear day, the mountains of North Africa. Here, time stops, and one is enveloped by pure silence, and pure peace. Nestled among the fruit orchards, olive and fig trees, complete with an immaculate 12 by 5 meter PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL, Finca San Anton makes for a perfect and unforgettable Spanish refuge.
The apartment, like the house to which it is adjacent, was designed by artists intent on maintaining the uniqueness of this location. Towering ceilings and windows allow the light and views to come pouring in. The unit is fully furnished with ample desk and storage space; a king-sized bed (or two wide singles); wireless high-speed Internet connection (Wifi); satellite TV (with plenty of English programming); DVD; a washing machine; and a spacious bathroom. 2.5 meter glass double doors open to a terrace with views of the entire coast as well as a sculpture garden. The ceilings are so high, that a charming and one-of a kind loft has been built into one end of the main space. Accessible by ladder, with two windows, a desk, and an additional single bed it is perfect for a guest or a child. The kitchen is brand new and fully equipped, with four-burner stove, oven, microwave, juicer, Brita water-filter, electric kettle, coffee makers, fridge/feezer and marble counter-tops. A courtesy selection of "starter food supplies" (eggs, milk, bread, butter, jam, fruit, coffee, tea) for breakfast and snacks will be there when you arrive. Eat inside or on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean. Terrace is equipped with sun chairs, sun umbrella, tables, a small barbeque, etc., and is sunny all day!
Adjacent to this unit we also have a very comfortable guest room which contains one single bed and one double bed. This room in not included with the apartment but can be rented additionally.
The grounds offer a quiet country paradise with olive and fruit trees, lawns, and many years of tasteful gardening. There are ruins of a Moorish fortress just a few meters from the house and many scenic walks and hikes directly connected to the property. By day, chart the sun's progress as it moves across the perfect blue sky, and shimmers on the surface of your beautiful PRVATE SWIMMING POOL; by night sip red wine as the lights of the Coast twinkle far below you and the moon rises above the Sierras.
Finca San Anton is located in the countryside, 1 kilometer East of the town of Mijas (a three minute drive or 15 minutes on foot). Mijas combines the best of "Old" and "New" Spain. Spectacularly preserved, it contains tiny cobblestone streets, homes thick with hundreds of years of whitewash, chapels, churches, and priceless plazas. From Mijas, a 15 minute drive down the hill to the coast takes you to bustling Fuengirola, complete with beaches, malls, markets, train and bus stations. The Malaga Airport is a 20 minute drive; and 30 minutes takes you to Malaga, the capital of Andalucia. Any point along the "tenderloin" of the Costa Del Sol - East towards Torremolinos, or West towards Marbella - can be accessed in under half an hour. Private shiatsu, yoga or art classes (drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery) can be arranged upon request. There is also a gorgeous new health spa/gym about 7 minutes away (Nagomi Spa). The location is ideally situated for a multitude of day-trips and get-aways. Though the property is within walking distance of Mijas we strongly suggest renting a car for your stay.
BELOW ARE SOME REVIEWS FROM RECENT TENANTS:
We had a great time and are already missing the place - as your photos suggest, everything about it is unique! The apartment was great, bright and airy with everything we needed. In the morning we would pull back the curtains, open the doors and view the ocean, with a fresh cup of coffee and the sound of the birds....this is a world away from London.
We loved the privacy, spectacular views, pool, fruit trees - I had never eaten fresh figs before! Tranquillity, culture ...the list is endless. Your hospitality was very much appreciated, and we hope to visit again (if you'll have us).

When you look up Finca San Anton it is listed under apartments, but
when you arrive and experience the mysteries and beauties of the place,
you quickly realize that Finca San Anton is SO much more than just an
apartment. The luscious garden, buzzing with life; the crystal clear pool
that seems to float out into the Mediterranean; and the finished and
unfinished art scattered all over serves as a testament to the creative
minds who build Finca San Anton from scratch. Really, the entire place
is like an island of solace perched atop the Mediterranean where you can
find peace and quiet. For me and my girlfriend, Finca San Anton was that
island for one - far too short! - week.

We had a very enjoyable week in this charming Spanish rustic idyll
appropriate to its delightful surroundings. There is ample space for
car parking. We were met with a wonderful warm smile from the
proprietor and some splendid tail wags from the 2 very friendly golden
labradors that also like to meet and greet, a keen eye was kept on us by
the family cat.
This studio apartment is well equipped with all the essentials you need
for your stay at San Anton. The fabulous swimming pool is more than
inviting and with the luxury of the quiet setting, relaxation will always
Enjoy a 30-minute stroll to the town of Mijas where you can spend time
eating, drinking or shopping. You can't fail to explore as you walk around
the town and you will be taking home some wonderful photographs.
If you are looking for peace and quiet, and respect for your privacy then
San Anton will fit all of these requirements.

I found this beautifully situated apartment to be ideally suited for
my needs. It was clean, bright, comfortable and quiet, had plenty of
rural Spanish charm and totally removed from the crowded Costa del Sol
beach scene. It was nicely equipped with modern conveniences, yet it
allowed a campo atmosphere with green spaces, flora and a lovely sun
deck patio from which I marveled the vistas.
Well located on a plateau, overlooking the Mediterranean and
Fuengirola, just west of Malaga within walking distance to the picture
postcard pueblo of Mijas. It was a great location to ponder art and
local history, make trips to many destinations including: Antiquera,
Sevilla, Ronda and Granada as well as the rugged pueblos in the
I was very pleased with my stay and would recommend it to others
looking for something with an authentic feel and flair, away from the
