My Husband and I kept coming back to "Finca Chimeneas", when we were trawling the internet for villas/apartments in Spain, and something kept drawing us to it. I now know why. It is the MOST beautiful, relaxing place. Yes, the track down to the Finca, at first, is a bit daunting, but forget about that, what you get at the end is just perfect. We only had a Toyota Auris car, and it was fine. You are surrounded by the most stunning countryside, peace and tranquility.
The Finca has absolutely everything you could wish for. The kitchen is so well equipped, the terrace is so relaxing. Everything is there for you. The list is endless. We could not get a phone signal, but the Wifi is strong, and being on Messenger and Whatsapp we could keep in touch with family and the outside world, and the dreaded social media!!!! If you go further up the lane you get a strong phone signal from there. There is a TV, but no connection, only a DVD player. We took a few DVDs with us, but the Finca is well equipped. One thing would be a good idea is buy some HDI cables to plug your tablet into, so you can cast them to the TV. We managed to watch Netflix and Amazon Prime via our tablets though because of the good Wifi signal.
Juan and Inma, who look after the Finca, are always on hand, if you need anything, and are absolutely charming.
Villanueva itself has a good selection in the local supermarket. We travelled to Antequera and went to Carrefour to get groceries. The Finca even had a cool box, so we took the icepacks to enable us to purchase chilled food etc.
The surrounding area, Almogia, El Torcal, Caminito Del Ray, all worth a visit. We loved Antequera itself, and went back several times. We also drive to Granada to the big shopping mall "Nevada Shopping" and also drove down to the coast for the day.
To be honest, we did not go out in the evening, as we were so chilled out and relaxed after we had been out for the day, it was just lovely to sit by the pool, have a drink, and cook a meal.
We cannot recommend this place enough. Even if you were a celebrity, the Paps would not be able to get to you. An absolutely perfect place to unwind, in a beautiful beautiful setting.
Andrea was always on hand if you have any queries, and would answer emails straightaway.
I really would like to add more and more, but it would take up all the characters I have remaining to do so. We did not want to leave - ONE WORD AMAZING!
Property is lovely, everything explained in the villa description is accurate and on point.
The setting is amazing with rolling hills, the sounds of nature and wonderful star gazing at night.
The villa is secluded and you need a decent hire car to tackle the long winding track, it's not a problem but takes some getting used to. It's not a villa you can walk out from.
If you want a secluded holiday, with an amazing pool, entertaining games room and the company of only your friends and family in the villa then this is for you.
