SPACIOUS 10 BEDROOM VILLA, HUGE POOL, STUNNING LOCATION & VIEWS, TOTAL PRIVACY

Photos and Description of this 10 bedroom holiday villa in Loja - Finca El Almendrillo

Big Andalucia house, modernised and sensitively refurbished to original grandeur

Stunning renovation of 150 year old Farmhouse with views over the Granada countryside. This is the real thing, a real Cortijo farmhouse (in 6000 square metres of its own land) far from busy roads and offering total seclusion in a central location. No photo tricks with our pool - at 17 x 7 metres it is the biggest you will find, room enough for 20 plus.

Since Mike & Emma bought this huge farmhouse this is their eleventh successful year offering luxury accommodation to families seeking privacy, tranquillity and outdoor fun. Unforgettable holidays beckon whether groups of families looking to entertain the kids or large groups of adults simply wanting to mix poolside relaxation with the best sites of classical Spain (Granada, Cordoba, Malaga 1 hrs drive).

Indoor and outdoor kitchens and the traditional cobbled courtyard ensure mealtimes to remember, with loads of space for playing.

Whole Finca sleeps 20 plus, discount for smaller groups. Please contact Mike & Emma for details.

Here are early reviews, for recent reviews up to last year see the reviews section

Just letting you know we had a fantastic holiday at El Almendrillo. Such a great place with rooms for everyone to wander off in in the midday sun and so well placed for visits around Andalucia.

Thanks again and I'll pass on info for Almendrillo if anyone friends are looking for a fab place for a holiday.

Anne (July 2006)

The facilities are excellent. The interiors are beautiful.

We had a terrific time at Almendrillo, thank you. It is a lovely property

Richard (August 2006)

Just wanted to say thank you. We had a great couple of weeks. So far all

I've got out of the kids is the holiday was 'totally wicked!' High praise indeed!

Karen (Aug 2006)

I just wanted to say we had a fabulous week at the Finca. the accommodation was perfect, the countryside beautiful. We used your Moro cookbooks and had some fabulous meals - will need to try out the London restaurant now.

We all agreed we would love to go back if we ever have the chance again!

AMAZING PLACE PERFECT FOR PRIVATE GROUP HOLIDAYS

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second trip back to Finca el Almendrillo in a few years – and both occasions marked very special holidays for us and our family and friends. Every single guest has remarked on what a wonderful and special place Finca el Almendrillo really is.
We returned to an improved, updated version of what we already thought was perfect. The gasps from our children and guests as we all arrived to the Finca will forever be one of my lasting memories, the beautiful views and stunning surroundings really are breath taking.
The vast expanse of Farmhouse and Casita was perfect for accommodating all of our guests’ needs and desires. The bedrooms are clean, simple and comfortable with cupboards and drawer space for clothes, fresh towels for both pool and bathrooms (always a plus not to have to pack more!) and most with modern ensuite bathrooms attached.
The outdoor BBQ and kitchen was a big hit for our BBQ cook offs along with alfresco dinning in the courtyard. The large swimming pool was perfect for the baking hot days and great for adults and kids alike. We left the Finca only for food supplies! There is plenty of indoor and outdoor space to cater for large group fun or solitary quiet moments to escape the crowd.
We had an amazing meal of traditional Tapas and Paella followed by delicious dessert cooked by a team of local chefs at the Finca (recommended and organised by Mike the owner) - on both holidays to mark special occasions, which really did exceed all expectations.

Mike (the owner) is without doubt the biggest asset to the venue. He is diligent, attentive, helpful and went above and beyond his role to ensure we were looked after and had a brilliant time.
We would definitely recommend Finca el Almendrillo to anyone who wants a fabulous Spanish holiday with stunning views and total privacy in a rural setting but with all the modern touches you need to enjoy and kick back. This place is amazing and will forever be on our top destination list!

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 out of 5
This villa far exceeded our expectations, it was set in the most beautiful location and had everything that we needed for a week off work! I travelled with 14 of my friends and we are definitely thinking about returning next year.
The owners were extremely friendly and very helpful. The booking was easy and the information we received about the villa and surrounding area was brilliant.
The best aspects for us were the massive pool and the outside courtyard with the outside kitchen, where we spent every evening cooking up a storm and there was plenty of space around the table for everyone!
The villa is beautifully decorated and in great condition, plenty of space and there's absolutely everything you need for a great holiday.
It was great value for money so if you're thinking of booking this place then - do it!!

SUPERB HOLIDAY!!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at El Almendrillo from 7-14th September 2013. From the moment we booked to when we left, Mikes (the owner) help was invaluable. The Finca is just stunning with the individual bedroom to the 3 kitchens! The outside is a must! The views from the poolside were spectacular, lucky as that is where all 3 generations spent most of the time. Mike's directions and guide were spot on and we left only to find the supermarket and the waterfall, which was an amazing find. The whole family cannot wait to come back and would recommend this beautiful place to everyone.

AMAZING WEEK IN AN AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the Finca for a week in August 2013 to celebrate our collective 30th birthdays. I'm sure I speak for the whole group when I say the Finca well exceed our expectations, it was beautiful and felt like a real home, from the moment we walked in tired and hungry to be greeted with a welcome pack of bread, cheese and beers to the moment we left we had the best time. The house is stunning, each room is unique and the owners' style shines through, this makes it feel like so much more than a holiday home. The outdoor spaces are wonderful, each have been cleverly thought through, there's always a shady spot to move to, and each area sits the whole group, so everyone can be together at once, or equally find a quiet spot alone to read a book. Every little thing had been thought of in the house, and it was stocked with plenty of huge pans and crockery to feed twenty people each night! We only left the villa once to have dinner in the local restaurant, but I could have happily stayed within the Finca for the full 7 days and not got tired of it! We spent most of the week around the pool, staring at the incredible unspoilt views across the Sierra Nevada. Mike was a pleasure to deal with in the lead up to the holiday, answering our every question, and was so hospitable when it came to arranging rooms and cots etc for the kids. He also had loads of helpful tips about the local area, and car hire, and his directions to the villa were spot on! Booking a holiday for twenty people is sometimes tricky but Mike made it easy. We didn't' want to leave, and are already talking about going back in a couple of years.

ONCE AGAIN WE ENJOYED CHARMING ALMENDRILLO

  • 5 out of 5
Four years ago, in June 2009, we spent a lovely week at Almendrillo with my husband's family. The charming Farmhouse was excellent for a large family of three generations to spend time together while at the same time being able to enjoy privacy when needed. There was room in and around the house for everyone to enjoy themselves as they liked best. Whether you prefer to play or sunbathe by the pool or to sit in a quiet shady place enjoying the tremendous panoramic view over the hills, you will find it at Almendrillo. So when we decided to spend a weeks' vacation with good friends in Spain this summer, our choice was easy. This time we were three families, six adults and seven children (tweens and teens). We were happy to revisit the place and our friends were as excited as we about the cozy, authentic and yet luxurious comfort and atmosphere at the Almendrillo Farmhouse. We combined our stay at Almendrillo with a visit to the Alhambra (Granada), Cordoba, Sierra Nevada, Malaga Beach and even Gibraltar. All these sites and many more can be reached by car within reasonable time.

Many holiday-makers at El Almendrillo never leave the Finca ! But if after a few days' relaxation you need to get out and about, 10 minutes through beautiful countryside from the Finca there is the village of Fuente del Conde with bar/restaurant and a supermarket. A variety of local restaurants within 15 mins drive. Nearest big towns are picturesque Iznajar and bustling Antequera (more bars, restaurants and night-life here). Almendrillo is uniquely placed within an hour and a quarter of Granada and Cordoba, and the beaches of Malaga and Motril. Slightly further away lie Sevilla and Ronda, or to the east the romantic Alpujarras

Close to home there is horse-riding for all ages and abilities, walking in the Torcal national park, Wolf Park, further afield water-park attractions, marine parks, a zoo.

At Almendrillo you can take one of our mountain bikes to visit local farms for baby goats, sheep, peacocks or see hoopoes, eagles and other Spanish wild birds.

Other Activities: mountain biking, pool, table tennis, table football, painting, drawing
