About the property

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

This is a beautiful old cottage 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.

About John & Lynda Bysouth

I have had the wonderful opportunity to live and work in southern Spain for 5 years before returning to the UK. I work as a Business Manager of a very successful Primary School in North Hertfordshire. I try to visit Spain at least 4 times a year where I never tire of the beauty and simplicity of the area.

John & Lynda Bysouth purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why John & Lynda Bysouth chose Torrox

The views are to die for yet it is only 15 minutes to the costa where you can enjoy many restaurants, bars, a great beach and good shops.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Torrox is still very Spanish were the locals go about their everyday business but are equally friendly and enjoy having visitors to their lovely village. The finca allows you to really unwind and forget about the hustle and bustle of our very busy lives allowing you to relax and rejuvenate yourselves.

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.

Lovely old finca, nicely restored, with fabulous views.

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing time up in the hills away from it all in a well appointed little finca. Lots to explore around the finca with its terracing and fruit trees. A nice pool and lovely views.

Beautiful, charming farmhouse in fabulous, tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two week holiday at Finca Jacaranda. The farmhouse has been lovingly restored by Lynda & John and has everything you would need to make your stay all you could wish for. The beds were extremely comfortable and the air-con and powerful fan a godsend. The farmhouse has the sun from about mid-morning, on the upper terrace, then from lunchtime onward at the pool area. We loved being able to sit out, in either sun or shade, on the different terraces throughout the whole day. The views were spectacular and the peaceful setting of hills and a view of the sea, all added to making our holiday one to remember. The road up to the Finca is a single track but the directions are clear and accurate and we found it without a problem. Keith was our point of contact during our stay and was easily contactable and very helpful trying to sort out a problem we had with the pool jets.

We would not hesitate to recommend the farmhouse to anyone. It was ideally placed to see the area, being only 10 minutes from the motorway, giving access to the cities, coastal resorts and hilltop villages of Andalusia. However, we spent most of our time at the Finca, as it was just such a fantastic place to be. Thank you so much Lynda and John for sharing your gorgeous property, we will definitely be back.

Fantastic holiday, very relaxing and a great base for exploring the area

  • 5 of 5

Finca was lovely and the welcome basket was a lovely touch particularly if arriving late in the day. Also great to have a well equipped kitchen with basics groceries such as salt, oil, eggs and garlic. Very hot during our stay but the pool and shaded areas were perfect for keeping cool in the heat of the day.

Overall a lovely relaxing time and just what we wanted

We arrived at the finca late afternoon after a drive from the airport. The welcome basket was such a lovely touch. Villa was perfect with stunning views - weather treated us well so the pool was a dream!

Wouldn’t hesitate to come back again 10/10

Lovely Finca

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property, the drive up is a little steep, but over the week we soon became used to the twists and turns, definitely worth it. Would like to return.
