Finca Lo Martin is a beautiful big farmhouse in a peaceful location as it sits within the Montes de Malaga, an amazing unspoiled area of Andalucia.This 200 year old building can easily sleep 10 but has the facilities to sleep 12 making it one of the best value rentals in this area,if there are babies or toddlers.
Far from being a standard holiday rental this rustic property gives you the real feel of nostalgic rural Spain and makes the rental experience authentic and memorable.
The immediate grounds that are not only home to Ferry and Julie (who reside in Grandma's Cottage, next door) but also their collection of pets which include dogs, cats, and hens.
The feel for the place is homely with fruit, salads and eggs all available fresh and great value.
The patios, terraces and amazing bigger than average Roman stepped swimming pool compliment the farmhouse and then take a back seat as your eyes feast on the amazing views, abundance of local plants, trees and the walks that are begging to be taken.An amazing place.
The nearest village to Finca lo Martin is the stunning mountain village of Comares.
This pretty white village sits hanging off a cliff and has strong Moorish influenced buildings and history, the position of the village means that is will not be commercialised to the main stream tourist trade and the coaches that pour into the villages nearer the coast do not venture this high up, which gives an amazing peaceful environment.
This area is the real Spain, accessible due to it being only 1 hour from Malaga, but unspoilt and in some ways in a time capsule of Olive Groves, Almond Orchards and Orange Trees that drop their fruit into the walkways below.
The experience of renting this amazing farmhouse allows guests to escape the everyday stress of current life whilst either simply relaxing around the pool and grounds or having an agenda that can take in cities such as Malaga and Granada, beaches like Torrox and Nerja with it's famous caves.
There are pretty villages, none as special as Comares that can be searched out and explored in abundance and if you like festivals these take place throughout the year and are plentiful throughout the spring and summer months.
The area lends itself to horse riding, walking, mountain biking, bird watching and many out door facilities.
