Perfect peaceful and quiet couples get-away

  • 5 of 5

The outdoor accommodation is ideal with a good size pool, big wide views but still privacy. Indoor accommodation is basic but functional and rustic. The really lovely stone shower is stunning.

The location up in the hills is ideal to get away from the busy Costa del Sol seaside area and we found we preferred being by our pool than by the sea. Easier to get a drink, get some shade or go to the loo! And no worries about leaving your belongings on beach while you swim. And it was hot so we needed refreshing dips often.

The drive up is exciting and really makes you feel your in a remote place but its still easy enough to go down to beach or town.

Sayalonga village was full of very helpful people. They even opened the supermarket for us when we arrived during the afternoon siesta! And the Bar - Restaurante Palustre felt authentic locals pub but we were welcomed by the friendly owner and we visited it everyday and not the others targeting the tourists.

We only stayed one night at this property in order to go on holiday at a convenient time to us and Juergen was very helpful enabling us to do this. As was the Uli their local contact who helps manage the properties and drove in-front of us to the next property. The rest of our week we stay at Castia la Colina property number 2248677 to read my review of this one. It's just a good!

So get on a plane, load up the hire car stock up on food and drink and ICE and relax!

PS don't use GoldCar Rental - it's budget and that's why I picked it through but being the cheapest meant we had to queue for an hour in the airport despite seemingly checking in on-line and also they add on stealth charges such as insisting of taking out a higher level of insurance. Next time I would prefer to pay a little more with a high quality brand such as Hertz.

Everything was gorgeous and more so. The view, the whales, the birds, the flowers and ripening fruit, the coquis and their songs, all of it so beautiful. The house easily accomodated all of us with communal space and private napping surfaces on the balcony or pool area. It could not have been lovelier. And Larry and his staff are thoughtfully present without being obtrusive and so needs are met easily and courteously. Definitely try to get there again soon. It was wonderful

Ruhe und Genuß Pur !!! :-)

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren vom 20. - 29.06.2018 in dieser wirklich tollen (schnuckeligen) Finca.

Wer die Ruhe und einen grandiosen Ausblick in die andalusischen Berge oder ans Meer liebt, ist hier wirklich an der richtigen Adresse!

Im Vorfeld hat uns der Vermieter schon viele Tips und Info´s per E-Mail geschickt, was es alles an sehenswertem in der näheren und auch weiteren Umgebung gibt.

Der Hammer ist aber wirklich der tolle Pool, den wir auch täglich nach unseren Ausflügen nach Granada, Ronda, Malaga oder El Torcal genutzt haben.

Die Finca selbst hat eine funktionale Küche und außen einen Grill. Abend´s sind wir auch gerne die 2,5 KM nach Sayalonga gefahren und haben eines der 3 tollen und vor allem günstigen Restaurants besucht.

Wir waren wirklich sehr zufrieden und bestimmt kommen wir irgendwann wieder in die Finca Solimar! :-)

Un petit bout de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine dans cette très belle finca. Au calme, avec vue sur la mer et les montages, à seulement 10 mn du très joli village de Sayalonga, cette finca est très bien équipée, avec tout ce qu'il faut pour passer de bonnes vacances. Nous y avons passé la première semaine de mai, l'eau de la piscine était très bonne et nous en avons bien profité. Très bon accueil à l'arrivée. Nous vous conseillons vivement cette location, vous ne serez pas déçus. Nous avons qu'une envie... y repartir !!!

Entspannung pur. Unsere Empfehlung!

  • 5 of 5

Die Finca Solimar bietet für einen entspannten Urlaub alles.

Es herrscht eine absolute Ruhe, die Aussicht ist herrlich und noch besser als die Bilder versprechen. Gerade an dem traumhaften Pool und in den Abendstunden, wenn der Himmel absolut farbenprächtig war konnte man die Ruhe besonders genießen. Die Austattung der Finca ist sehr gut (z.B. Küchengeräte, Grillequipement, Reiseführer, Lesestoff...).

Wenn irgendetwas war konnte man die Familie Franken (Verwalter) anrufen, welche sich sehr nett und freundlich um unsere Belange gekümmert haben.

Auch die Betreuung durch den Vermieter, Herrn Tiggelkamp war sehr gut und freundlich. Den Restaurant- und Ausflugstipps sind wir teilweise nachgegangen und wurden nicht enttäuscht.

Wir bedanken uns für einen tollen Urlaub in der Finca Solimar und werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!

Situated just 9 kilometres from the coast, in between the mountains of the Sierra Almijara, you find the typical Andalusian white washed village of Sayalonga. Here Andalucia has remained unchanged. With narrow winding streets, tiny pubs, typical market aquares attracting young and old, surrounded by Jakaranda trees and the general hustle and bustle of everyday life, lights up this typical village. Farmers riding their mules, goat herds making their way to the fields, all add to the charm and col
