About the property

A self-catering rental with magnificient views of the sea and mountains.

This is a beautiful old cottage recently renovated and equipped to a high standard including free Wifi. Nestled in the hillside above Torrox Pueblo, it enjoys magnificent views of the sea and mountains. On your door step are several lovely walks, where you can often enjoy the hospitality of the local Spanish families who will invite you in to taste their wine.

There are plenty of terraces around the cottage for you to enjoy. A pretty covered terrace to the front of the cottage provides wonderful views across the valley and has a large wrought iron table and chairs for al fresco dining. To the left and at the same level is the well equipped BBQ area. Follow this down between two lovely old olive trees and you will come to another terrace which is great for coffee and tapas and enables you to look down over the village and out to sea. A few steps down is a sun terrace with shade and large private pool where you are completely secluded and can relax undisturbed all day if you wish.

Golf: The coastline east of Malaga is served with several good golf courses. Anoreta and Baviera are only 20 minutes away.

Skiing: The ski resort nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountains, near Granada is a wonderful ski experience and can be reached within 2 hours drive from Torrox. Locals often make an early start and just go up to ski for the day making it a very affordable event.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hendersons - After our last visit to Finca Jacaranda last year, we really couldn't think of anywhere we'd rather be on our holiday's this year. Beautifully located of course we could gaze at the view forever; read copious amounts of fiction round the pool and laze our time away without any guilty feelings at not getting out and doing more.

Wessels - We've stayed at four different Fincas in Andalucia and this is the best to date. Lynda has taken great care to ensure a comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings. One week was not enough - we will be back.

Hopkins - We both absolutely loved our stay, particular highlights were the swallows diving in the pool to drink and guessing how many old gents would be sitting on the village bench just passing the time of day together.

Idyllic stay in peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is one of our favourite holiday spots, though we hadn't been here for more than ten years. There were a few very welcome extras, such as comfortable terrace chairs, wifi and UK TV and the garden is now more mature and well stocked with a delicious array of fruit and nuts on the trees. Otherwise it was the same comfortable, affordable, quiet retreat where we could laze around the pool all day, sit in a number of shaded areas, or take a trip to a selection of beaches or white mountain villages, a short drive away. A car is essential, but it helps you get away from it all. I'm sure we'll return before long!

Very nice house

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house with everything you need for the holidays. Everything was clean and has a very good, pool, kitchen and balconys. Is not so far from the town but the road to arrive is quite bad, difficult to drive. That is the only negative point I found, but that makes te place is very quite and have beautifull views

Torrox Finca Stay

  • 5 of 5

Well, where do I start? A fantastic finca in the hills above both Torrox village & Torrox Costa. Views to die for! If you are looking for a 'get away from it all holiday', this is the place. Once you have navigated the tricky steep and windy roads to the finca, you will have arrived at a place that you will not want to move away from. You will need a car!

A welcome pack was really appreciated, as we had forgotten that Spanish supermarkets are closed on a Sunday!! Thank you Lynda & John.

The finca is well equipped and has all the kitchen utensils you will ever need. Air conditioning in the main bedroom wasn't needed as the temperature within the finca was constant.

We both really enjoyed the location, not overlooked, sitting on the terrace enjoying a glass of wine and tapas (cooked on the gas BBQ), enjoying the views to the sea. Swimming pool was excellent which received the sun from around 11.45am until sunset - ideal and safe for children.

There was no need for us to move once we had shopped for our provisions and we totally enjoyed our 4 days in Torrox and will definitely be returning for a relaxing get away from it all holiday again later in the year.

We have always found the Finca a special place to relax and recharge the batteries and glad you enjoyed the peaceful setting as well. It would be lovely to have you back later in the season. We keep our calendar up to date at all times so just pop onto the website and check out the availability. Enjoy the rest of the summer Warmest Wishes Lynda

Amazing villa in a beautiful location. Loved the privacy and peace. Excellent pool

  • 5 of 5

Villa is a bit off the beaten track but it's worth it for the brilliant views, privacy and a real sense of peace. The accommodation has everything you need and you get off to a great start with the generous welcome hamper. The layout is perfect for that mixture of comfort and lazy days around an excellent pool. The location is great for visiting the local towns and villages and you do get used to the winding road to the villa. Overall an amazing two weeks and hated leaving. Oh and watch out for the local black cat - she is lovely but is a devil for tripping you up

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a chill out bolt hole and boy did we get it!

The location was stunning and everything good I had read about the property before we arrived was true.

This week was about spending quality family time together and it is the ideal place to do it.

A car is essential but there is everything you could need in Torrox Pueblo/Torrox Costa & Nerja all a short drive away.

Missing it already...
