Wonderful finca in beautiful landscape

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to relax and enjoy Andalucia away from the crowded tourist scene and yet everything to be reached in reasonable time. Staying at the cozy "villa" (holiday apartment) of the wonderful Finca Almendra with a lovely mediterranean garden, a pool and many places to rest and enjoy the great views of the beautiful landscape was a perfect break from everydays' hassle. The friendly owners make you feel very welcome and are always ready to help or give interesting information! We felt very comfortable at Finca Almendra and really enjoyed our week to a maximum!

An excellent and comfortable stay, with lovely views.

  • 4 of 5

A very clean and well equipped holiday villa, in a beautiful location. Bob and Chris were fantastic hosts, and greeted us with homemade bread, and delicious homegrown lemons. A lovely pool, which we swam in despite it only being 20 degrees thanks to the cloudy weather we had! We found the long access road dirt track adventurous, and our standard hire car dealt with it fine. Muchas gracias Bob & Chris.

Relaxed and quiet place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This fully equipped villa was a perfect base for a quiet holiday with our baby at the Spanish campo. We loved the easy walks right from the house, the views, the hospitality of Chris and Bob, the little villages nearby and the near beaches.

A really lovely, villa with fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time! We are a family of four (kids 10 & 6) and it was just what we wanted. A lovely clean, spacious villa away from it all, with fabulous views of Andalusia. The pool is to the front of the owners side of the property and is clean, and has gorgeous views, and our kids loved it (as did we), there are plenty of umbrellas and tables so it's easy to sit in the sun or the shade. The beach is about 20-30 mins away where there are plenty of restaurants and amenities and the local villages are closer with small stores etc. The owners were great, accessible when needed but left us alone to get on with it too, completely understanding that you just want to relax and enjoy! Would definitely recommend it.

Andalucian getaway...

  • 5 of 5

Quiet sunsets dip into the Mediterranean as calm breezes bring the smell of blooming spring flowers that line the winding hiking trails that seamlessly canvas the rolling hillsides emanating from the doorstep of this wonderful cottage.

Rustic, terraced avocado, lemon, mango and nîspero groves provide the savvy hiker with many bountiful fruits of this fertile and historic agricultural region.

Just a 45 minute hike into the quiet town of Sayalonga brings you fine restaurants, friendly locals and a glimpse of daily life and the Spanish traditions that have been passed on here for centuries.

But the best part of the day is returning home to the familial atmosphere and calming surroundings of the Finca Almendra. The open kitchen, relaxing decor and meticulously tidy cottage is the perfect retreat from the high occupancy seaside hotels of Malaga and Torre del Mar.

The generous and accommodating owners go out of there way to make your stay both private and relaxing but willingly make the extra effort to make your stay more enjoyable. Chris and Bob's home made bread and knowledge of the local cuisine, hiking and culture give you a unique insight into the area and if you're lucky a tour of their wonderful home.

In just hours after your arrival you will feel yourself in harmony with the land, art and beauty Chris and Bob have stitched into the rocky hillsides and counting the months until you can come back to this rejuvenating, peaceful Spanish villa.
