A little piece of Paradise

5 of 5
We knew from previous reviews that we had found a gem. But in reality we had actually found a little piece of paradise called Finca La Mariposa, and we never wanted to leave. The location of the villa is perfect with wonderful views from the pool, Jacuzzi, dining and roof terraces. The pool is large with plenty of room for 4 adult sized inflatables and the hot tub was a fabulous place to enjoy a cocktail (or two) in the evening. The spotless outside loo was very handy when poolside. We ate breakfast under the dappled shade by the pool bar and lunch (usually about 4pm!) and dinner under the shade of the dining terrace. The interior is large, spacious and airy thanks to air con in every room and roller shutters on the windows. The kitchen is large and well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils, plus eye level oven, ceramic hob, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. The bedrooms are a good size and the two bathrooms each have a large walk in shower plus there is a bath in the family bathroom. The lounge has a large screen TV, which was great for watching some of the World Cup matches - particularly from the reclining leather sofa (the recliner was so comfy that all who sat there fell asleep!). The villa is close to the village of Valle de Abdalajis, where there are several shops for buying fresh produce. However, we stopped at the Mercadona at Alora (mid-way between airport and villa) en route to stock up on groceries etc so that we had no need to leave the villa. The road/track leading to the villa is steepish in places but easy (and fun) to negotiate by staying in first gear. The driving instructions from airport to villa, supplied by Steve, were easy to follow, however, searching for Calle la Vinuela, Valle de Abdalajis on phone sat nav also works. All contact with Steve and Karen before, during and since our stay was easy with prompt responses and they provided helpful tips and recommendations. Thank you both. There is also a folder at the villa with useful info. If you are looking for somewhere to relax, unwind, completely lose track of time and recharge your batteries look no further! We hope to return very, very soon.

Peaceful and relaxing stay amongst stunning scenery

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Finca Miel. Set in the hills close to Alora the house and pool face to the west allowing you to enjoy long days relaxing in the sun, or taking trips around the surrounding area - definitely recommend the walking the Caminito del Rey (sensible to book ahead on-line). Finca Miel has everything you need, including a BBQ. It is well kept and the pool is perfect. Watching the sun set over the hills above El Chorro each night was a real highlight.
