About Susyn Zabell

We moved to Spain from London when the children were young as we wanted to give them an Enid Blyton upbringing with lots of activity, adventure and fresh air. We welcome you to savour Andalucia in the past, with the sound of the goat herd passing at sunset to the fabulous modern facilites all within a short drive. I am a Body Control Pilates teacher and happy to give private sessions poolside if of interest.

Susyn Zabell purchased this house in 2002

Why Susyn Zabell chose Mijas Costa

Finca la Fruta has a rustic charm being nestled in the countryside yet only 10 minutes drive from many lovely beaches and super amenities to ensure a relaxed holiday full of many happy memories and we hope you would like to return to year after year. A holiday to enjoy the best of both worlds; quiet country hideaway with easy access to beaches, restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Try lazing in the double hammocks in the shade of the eucalyptus with your favourite book......

What makes this house unique

Ideal location with diverse activities to suit all age groups, be it a day at the beach or long walks in the countryside. The views are spectacular, especially at sunset with a glass of wine on the terrace! The property is 10,000m2 and securely enclosed for children to roam freely and safely.

Very nice time at Finca la Fruta

  • 5 out of 5
Already for the second time we spent our vacation here. This time for 18 days.
We love it: in mountains not far from the sea to live. Who likes the quiet area but everything to have near - this is the right place to spend holidays.
We are already looking forward to our next holiday of course - at Finca la Fruta.

relaxing self catering holiday

  • 5 out of 5
Finca la Fruta proved to be an ideal location for a relaxing holiday in Andalucía. If like us you want a holiday away from the tourist hot spots this fits the bill. The Chalet, patio and gazebo with hammocks gives the opportunity to sit and unwind and the pool allows you to cool off when the weather is hot. The living accommodation has plenty of space and soon it becomes home from home. Everything you need is there.
Easily found with the directions and Google Maps have an excellent picture so you definitely know when you arrive that you are in the right place. Susyn made us most welcome and was available if we need any help. Her three dogs are adorable and very well behaved.
Site seeing is done easily from here as road networks are good, we quickly made our way to Mijas, Rhonda and the coastal towns, even down to Gibraltar and up to Granada top see the Alhambra. (If you are thinking of visiting the Alhambra you have to book ahead as there is limited availability). Borrow the bikes and a ride along the river takes you down to Fuengirola where the beaches are beautifully clean and the bed attendants very helpful. So many places to eat you will be spoilt for choice but don’t forget you have to ride back again.
Back home now both sporting golden tans and having thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay at Finca la Fruta

Owner's Response: Thankyou Bob and Naomi for your review. It was great to see the bikes being used to visit the beach for the day! There is a nature trail running from our gate that follows the river to the castle in Fuengirola for cyclists and walkers.

Another excellent and relaxing holiday

  • 5 out of 5
We returned to Finca La Fruta again this year and had another wonderful stay. We were made to feel very welcome even before we arrived. My Dad came along with us this time and thought the setting idyllic. We stayed for 15 nights this time and still had to drag ourselves away. Our daughter went horse riding with Susyn and loved playing with the dogs again. The road was a bit noisier this year but it didn't affect our stay. Looking forward to returning again soon.

Great property, restful holiday.

  • 5 out of 5
Finca la Fruta is a fantastic modern property - just as shown in the photographs - never been anywhere quite like it - very well equipped - everything you could have wished for in the kitchen was there. Welcome pack was provided in the cost of the holiday. If you are considering taking anything other than clothes and toiletries check with Susyn as it's probably already there. Views were amazing, pool area fabulous. Loved the company of Silas, Torca and Rambo. Loved having the use of the cycles too! Thanks to Susyn for a great holiday - would recommend to all.

Wonderfully relaxing stay

  • 5 out of 5
Finca la fruta is wonderful. We stayed As a family of 4 travelling with 2 boys ( 9 and 7 yrs). From the outset it was destined to be a good stay. Susyn is brilliant, arranging lunch on the day of arrival to constantly being on hand to suggest places to go and eat - thank you. As for the villa it is so well equipped it is like being at home there is everything you would need and so clean and tidy . The pool is brilliant and we spent many hours soaking up the sun there and when fed up of too much sun we just chilled on the hammocks. The boys absolutely loved Susyns lovely dogs and made it feel very much like home from home. Thank you we loved our stay and will most certainly be back.

Lovely cottage with beautiful views

  • 5 out of 5
We are just back from a fantastic relaxing holiday at Finca La Fruta. The cottage is exactly how it is described and spotlessly clean. It is set in a peaceful location where you can relax all day or take a short car journey to the nearest resorts of La Cala or Fuengirola on the coast or travel further inland to small villages like Mijas. A car is essential for getting around. The owner, Susyn, was very welcoming and went way beyond the call of duty to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. Our 10 year old daughter loved visiting the ponies, playing with the 3 very friendly dogs, swimming in the pool and horse riding at the nearby stables. She had the freedom to roam around as the property is securely enclosed. My favourite spot was in the hammock in the shade - very relaxing.
I would highly recommend this property and plan on booking for next year as soon as possible.

FINCA LA FRUTA is a idyllic escape located in the rural countryside near Entrerrios with views over roaming hills, avocado plantations and the peaks of Sierra de las Nieves reflected pink at sundown. The area is famous for its country walks, on and off-road cycle routes and endless horsetails, all of which can be easily arranged. The owners live in the 100 year old beamed farmhouse and there are also stables with small ponies on the 11,000m2 property. Only 15 minutes by car to the pretty beaches of La Cala de Mijas or the busier ambience of Fuengirola, Finca la Fruta is a convenient 25 minute drive west from Malaga airport and 30 minutes from Marbella and popular Puerto Banus. From December to April Sierra Nevada ski slopes are reached in under two hours and offer a exciting day out for all levels of skiers.

Set very separate from the old farmhouse is a charming wooden cottage built of top quality Scandinavian design. It has two twin bedrooms with ceiling fans(one can be adapted to a kingsize bed upon request), spacious American kitchen/diner/lounge with Sky TV free channels and DVD player, high speed wifi, a log burner and a luxurious modern bathroom. Floorspace of 56m2 and the same expanse of terrace with unspoilt views, Weber BBQ, al fresco dining and 4 sun loungers. The house would suit a family or 2 - 4 adults but is not suitable for children under 3 years old. The house is well insulated and remains cool in summer and cosy in winter. There is also exclusive use of private gardens with a wooden decking chill-out area with two double hammocks to relax with a good book or simply siesta in the shade. The free-form pool is a pleasure to relax around or swim lengths (10m) and is only shared with the farmhouse. Guests who visit will want to return at every opportunity! Several clients are satisfied repeat customers.

Mountain bikes and table tennis table on site. A great variety of golf courses including Mijas Golf, La Cala Golf and Santana are but 5 minutes away as are excellent floodlit tennis courts. Wonderful treks into the hills from stables just a five minute walk along the riverbed can be arranged through or if you prefer water sports why not enjoy a week of kite surfing sessions or visit Marbella Cable Ski which is fun for all the family. There are three very polite dogs on the property. Any other tours, activities or restaurant reservations can be arranged as well as a selection of authentic tapas, local cuisine or barbecue and salads prepared for you to enjoy on your terrace. A daily maid service is available upon request.

Directions: From Malaga airport head west on A7 until Mijas Aquapark turn-off. Head inland on A-7053 Camino Viejo de Coin and at km 7.5 take turn-off to La Atalaya and the entrance is on your left through green electric gates.
