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.
We spent two weeks at this Finca in August 2011 with our two kids aged
11 and 12. Like any holiday, you're always a bit nervous before you
arrive at the accommodation you've booked: Is it like the brochure? Will
we like it? I hope it's exactly as I imagined? Well, we needn't have
worried because this lovely little hillside Finca exceeded our
expectations in every way. The location is stunning, nestled on the side
of a hill with fantastic views overlooking Torrox with the sea beyond.
We spent hours on the spacious balcony watching the sun go down. The
house is well equipped, tastefully furnished and clean and tidy. There's
plenty of outdoor space and we loved the fact that there were different
areas to spend our time, having evening drinks and dinner. We mainly
BBQ'd for an evening meal or ate out at one of the restaurants in
Torrox. We did a day trip to the caves in Nerja and explored the town
for the day. We went to Burriana beach a couple of times which we highly
recommend, spent a day at Torremolinos Aqua Park and an afternoon and
evening exploring La Frigiliana. Apart from that, we spent lazy days by
the beautiful pool, relaxing and reading. There was a very welcome
hamper for us on arrival to tide us over until we got to the
supermarket. My tip would be to check all the drawers and cupboards in
the villa to see what provisions there are as we ended up buying stuff
that we needn't have. The road is a little tricky but you soon get used
to it. All of us had a great time and we'll definitely be back.
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...
We had a blissful weekend at this little finca for our wedding anniversary. Lynda was really helpful and prompt with the booking as our Hotel in Ronda had cancelled a few days before we were due to fly out. The drive up there is very steep and windy and our little hire car didn't like it but it was worth it for the location. (I would get a decent hire car if you can afford one). The directions provided were excellent though, great map!
Lynda and John have made the finca a real home from home with all the little extras that are appreciated when you are doing a short break. The beds were really comfy, beautiful quality linen and towels. Wifi and cable tv if you need it, we didn't bother. Adaptor plugs etc and a welcome pack of beer, wine and milk.
The setting is gorgeous, very secluded. We enjoyed swims in the pool a bbq and reading our books on the top terrace.
We have visited this area many times before so went back to our favourite place Frigiliana on Saturday. Also had a good walk and lovely traditional food down at Torrox Costa.
I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet getaway with stunning views. Plenty to see and so in the area and all mod cons.
We have had a wonderful stay at Finca Jacaranda. The Finca is brilliantly equipped and is perfect for a family of four. The views are beautiful and our children loved the pool. The journey up to the Finca is abit nerve wracking but you soon get used to it and once you arrive, it is all well worth it. Thank you Lynda and John for the memories.

Having only a week to unwind, Finca Jacaranda provided the utmost in peace, tranquility and relaxation in a stunning location. The Finca is quaint, and has all the amenities needed. A lovely pool, terraces for dining with amazing views, and a modern barbecue are some of the luxuries provided. We wanted for nothing, other than help to find the Finca on arrival, however, once found, the drive is fine. The local village is a picture postcard. We ambled through the quiet streets acknowledging the elderly residents sitting out in the warm evenings. There are small bars and restaurants in the village, simple but full of character. The beaches of Torrox Costa are only 15 minutes away. We preferred those to the East as they were quieter, and had many beach restaurants. We loved every minute of our stay at Finca Jacaranda and would recommend it to couples. The description is accurate, the property immaculately presented and clean. We didn't meet the owners but communicated with them before our trip. They provided named local contacts who we met on arrival and mid week.
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Finca. A car is a necessity, as the Finca is approximately 15minutes drive from Torrox Costa, uphill all the way. The drive is very steep in certain areas and can be a little intimidating on the first journey, but you soon get familiar to the trip.
The pool is a few steps below that main building and there is a glorious eating area on a middle terrace, very hand for the fabulous BBQ.
The finca is quite small but still ample for a family of 4. The air conditioning in the master bedroom is a welcome break from the temperature, which was in the mid 30’s while we were there. All is impeccably clean and everything that we needed was found.
A lovey hideaway, I just wish we could have stayed for longer.
We had an amazing time at the Finca. It is set in beautiful surroundings and had everything we wanted for an enjoyable holiday. Our two teenagers loved the pool and also the wifi! The Finca has lovely outside spaces with plenty of shaded areas to sit and read. Although the Finca is off the beaten track it is close enough to restaurants in the town and Costa to eat out at night. A very comfortable place and we would love to visit again.
Torrox is a typical Andalucian white village and has all the ambiance of old Spain with a quaint square offering tapas bars, restaurants and shops together with an impressive church. 10 minutes away you will find Torrox Costa with it's long sandy beach, wonderful promenade, good quality restaurants and water sports. The beautiful town of Nerja is only 15 minute drive along the coast and is lively, full of restaurants, shops and pretty beaches. There are a number of great coastal and countryside walks if you are wanting to explore the area on foot. If you are looking to visit some of the cultural attractions in Southern Spain then the cities of Malaga, Granada and Sevilla are all within reasonable driving distance.
