The flowers in the blue hand-painted pots represents something typical for the area of Mijas Pueblo. The new feature of the patio is a practical storage room for firewood and garden tools. The large canarian palm welcomes us!
This place is used extensively as an outdoor office. Other fields of application of this luxurious balcony is as a meditation lounge and outlook. The view is miles wide.
The juicebar is of course the perfect location for making fresh juice. It is also a suitable place for a delicious breakfast buffet. Late afternoon, it may be good for aperitif before dinner while admiring the sunset.
For many months of the year, this pool is appreciated for providing coolness. The pool has a sloping bottom, which makes it appropriate for both plunge and jump. You can take a few swims from one side to the other. When it is the hottest, you can float around on an air mattress. The pool’s engine room has recently been renovated. A tireless friend cleans up when needed. He is called “Chupo”, loves to swim and is a pool robot. In the evening a spotlight offers a beautiful light.
This is a small outdoor pavilion with four armchairs and a small table. The inside ceiling is painted in the color of the sky. Whatever light it is, the roof always has the same color as the sky.
Tardecita is located in a quiet and harmonious area, often with total silence. Sometimes the whisper of the trees can be heard. Around sunset, we are entertained by the “dog choir” when some dog in the area starts barking, and shortly thereafter a number of friends have joined in.
Through the serving hatch, the kitchen has contact with the outside where we can sit and have lunch. Maybe in a future there will be a pergola with vines there eventually.
This beloved workshop was recently given floor-mounted brick shelves with practical drawers for every necessary tool. As a decoration a mural was created, “The Road to Mijas”, painted by Anita, her son Fredrik with his girlfriend Elin. A little later, the workshop was inaugurated with ribbon cutting, champagne, dessert, music and dance.
This is extra space and a very appreciated addition and to the main building. It has its own kitchen, living room and a total of five beds.
A lovely place in the morning and evening for lectures, music performances, relaxation or a meal.
At the lower part of the Tardecita is the lovely garden with 18 fruit trees. In season there is a lot of fruit and it is a pleasure to enjoy fresh grapefruit or níspero.
There is always a lot that needs to be fixed at La Tardecita. In addition to our own work, we sometimes get help from professionals.
During summer, when it is hot and the sun still is out, the cicadas are heard. All year round, beautiful singing is offered by many sorts of birds. Some of the migratory birds from Sweden come down here to Costa del Sol to spend their winter. It is a good idea. Many people do too!
Weather and temperature vary, but most months are fine. With its lovely surroundings and people it is wonderful to be at La Tardecita all year round!
