HILLSIDE STUDIO NEAR MIJAS VILLAGE
This hillside studio is dramatically perched at the top of an arroyo with glimpses of the Mediterranean beyond. The charm of this property is its secluded location where you can feel completely private.
The detached studio-guest house is located at the end of a steep track in peaceful countryside near Mijas Pueblo. The studio, adjacent to the owner’s home, is completely self-contained with a private entrance. It has its own terrace off the kitchen for leisurely breakfasts and candlelit suppers, and a natural shady garden surrounded by olive trees.
Steep stone steps lead down to a terrace and spring-fed, non-filtered, pool. Nestled in a niche of the ravine, the pool is very private. Sun beds are provided. A leafy fig tree makes a natural sun-shade. (The pool is maintained from June through mid September.)
