CHARMING COTTAGE IN MIJAS, LOCATED IN THE HISTORIC PART OF THE VILLAGE

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Mijas - Casita Carmela

Newly renovated Spanish cottage with fabulous sea view, hot tub and wifi

Casita Carmela, renovated to a very high standard in 2013 consist of a gorgeous patio with hot tub/jacuzzi. Provided with comfortable sunbeds and of course, jacuzzi towels you start and end your day here. Breakfast coffee and croissants from the local bakery just 200 m up the street is taken at the comfortable table and chairs, umbrellas and awnings provide the perfect mix of sun and shade and you overlook the Mediterranean and the country side sloping down to the sea. Long lazy days can be spent here, putting something on the gas barbecue for lunch, making a salad from fresh local vegetables with a dressing from gorgeous olive oil, right up to the evening, when the sun goes down and the lights below on the coast twinkle like so many diamonds, competing with the starry sky. Hearing the village off in the background almost always makes you want to go for an easy stroll through the narrow streets, stop and sit down for half an hour with a drink, and just people watch, before coming home to Casita Carmela to enjoy the cosy and spacious open plan living room with 2 comfy sofas, tv nd dvd. Air conditioning cool and warm. The kitchen is brand new and well supplied to organize candle lit dinners, or simply make a nice bacon roll in the morning, there is a nice dining space indoors as well as outside. Carry on through the house, there is a dressing area, with double door wardrobe, that leads to the spacious bedroom with door to the patio (mosquito screened) and a comfortable 1.60 m four poster romantic bed. Airconditioning with cool and warm. En suite, the large bathroom has double sinks, and a huge double shower, all tastefully decorated in cream and green with nice towels and toiletries provided. Casita Carmela is also perfect for a winter break, with good heating in both living room and bedroom and underfloor heating in bathroom. Throughout the whole house, the owner, local artist and printmaker Mariann Johansen-Ellis, features her own artwork in a house where great emphasis has been placed on feeling like you came home, with touches like books, dvds, music cd's and ipod docking station, as well as beautiful kitchenware and linen. Casita Carmela is made to be a little gem, a jewellery cottage that you don't want to leave, and certainly want to come back to! Maid service, laundry service and breakfast service can be provided, just ask for rates.

Local artist Mariann Johansen-Ellis could not, not buy Casita Carmela when it came up for sale. Having visited friends who owned the house for many years, she knew the fantastic feeling the cottage has, the quiet and peace that surrounds and yet, it is right in the middle of Mijas. Marianns work, her prints, are on display in the house and in La Alacena, one of the many gorgeous shops in town.

Mariann & Les Ellis purchased this cottage in 2012

Casita Carmela was owned by a friend of mine, who also gave me art classes. I knew, what a wonderful ambience the house has, and think that eventually, when I get really old, I'll live here, and enjoy the fantastic view, the wonderful neighbours that are so kind, and the fact that Casita Carmela is a small cottage, with a grand view of things, in the best of Mijas locations.

Location Location Location, walking distance to everywhere in Mijas, off the main streets so not noisy at all, which can be a bit of a drag in Spanish villages, especially in summer with doors open.And of course, the view! the unbeatable view of the Mediterranean, and at night, the twinkling coast line.

Mijas is a typical Andalusian white village, clinging to the mountainside with fabulous views, also from the patio of Casita Carmela, out over the Mediterranean and the countryside. During most of the year, Mijas is full of activities, with special emphasis on summer with lots of outdoor concerts, theater, markets, festivals etc. You can also ride the famous donkeys, see flamenco dancing and people watch in the numerous bars and restaurants, all with outdoor seating. When you live in Mijas, you think of it as having 2 parts. In the one part, all the tourist activities takes place, most of the restaurants and bars are located here and there is always something going on. In the other part, the historic part of Mijas, the barrio, which literally means the neighbourhood, Mijeños live, love and conduct their lives as they always have, peace and quiet reigns of an evening and everybody greets each other in the streets and on the plazas. We have a couple of local restaurants, Bar Alarcon and Bar Niño, where on most days you recognize many faces. These 2 parts complement each other perfectly, Casita Carmela is located in the historic part, down a small alley, Callejon de las Flores, with a fabulous view over the sea and the park in Mijas. Yet, you can walk to everything, and it is so close, yet far enough away to not bother you at all. If you wanted to go a bit further afield, the buses leaving Mijas takes you all up and down the coast, taxi is easily available, making it a holiday spot where you don't need a car unless you want one.

The nearest beach is Fuengirola that have several blueflag beaches and Mijas is excellently located for the golf enthusiast as well, with many well known courses within half an hours drive.

Granada is about 2 hours away, with the Alhambra Palace. Malaga city about half an hour, with the Picasso Museum and numerous other activities. Malaga is trying for the Culture Capital designation in 2016 which means they are really on their toes with everything cultural, offering almost a glut of good exhibitions, concerts, theater etc......

Notes:
Casita Carmela is decorated through out as if you live there. The owner, local artist and printmaker Mariann Johansen-Ellis has spent many vacations in what she calls dreary holiday homes, full of unwanted and unloved left overs, so decided to make Casita Carmela the opposite, full of loved and comfortable furniture, wall art and decorative items, as she believes that holiday, is such an important part of our lives, it should be not just great, but excellent. Casita Carmela is a 5 star gem!
