Finca Las Brisas
A country estate in the hills of Mijas, on the coast of Andalusia
This rural estate, sits nestled just below the charming little white village of Mijas and is only a 10 minute drive away from the beautiful coast with its many beaches and excellent fish restaurants and tapas bars.
The finca is entered through an iron gate, opening to 3,4 acres of lush vegetation including citrus and avocado trees as well as an opulence of bougainvillea and orleander bushes blooming at all times of the year. The property has been a cherished home for the owner’s family for over 45 years. The well-furnished property has had an extensive renovation recently, the two pools and three tennis courts are in excellent condition. Besides the main villa, there are four individual houses, each with its own special charm and with plenty of privacy. The property can also be rented as a whole for larger groups.
Organic agriculture has been central to the workings of the ranch since the beginning and provides for delicious fruits and vegetables. There is an abundance of orange, tangerine and lemon trees, as well as avocado, fig, almond, pomegranate and of course beautiful gnarly old olive trees. Happy corn fed chicken produce very tasty, organic eggs. Depending on the season, our guests will have a basket of delicious home grown produce waiting for them.
The village of Mijas was established in the 16th century, it is famous for its white washed houses and lovely cobblestone streets, for beautiful handicrafts and the community of local artists. The church and historic bull ring are worth a visit and well-cared-for donkeys are available for a ride.
Malaga is a 20 minute drive away, as is Marbella in the other direction. Malaga offers a number of excellent museums and a cathedral and market hall that should not be missed. Marbella has an impressive yacht harbor, as well as a charming old town with outstanding restaurants and shops. A number of high class golf courses are located in the area, and day trips to the historic towns of Granada and Rhonda or even Sevilla and Cordoba are always an option. For children there are the added attractions of a progressive and fun zoo and a water park nearby.
