The day spent at La Finca del Castillo Arabe was one of the major highlights of our recent 3 week trip to Spain. Located about 35 minutes outside of Granada, it is a beautiful drive through the Lecrin Valley with views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. After 2 weeks of a busy schedule of traveling through the major cities of... More

We stayed 5 nights here with our son- the finca is mostly recently built to a very high spec with lots of effort on the eco-front; very nice rooms, large pool etc, and great views, including ruined Moorish Castle. It is a bit hard to find via narrow roads through olive and lemon groves but worth the effort, and, like... More

We spent five wonderful nights at La Finca this September (2014). We couldn't have asked for more gracious hosts as Scarlet and Chris. They were very informative and great company not to mention cooks. The food there is excellent , both healthy and delicious. The setting is breathtaking and I never tired of sitting on our terrace or by the... More

We have recently returned from La Finca after a week's stay with our 6 year old daughter. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the exceptional owners Scarlet and Chris we knew we would have a fantastic time. We were made to feel like one of the family.

We spent around 10 days here with our 2 children (5&2). It was so relaxing and one of the best holidays we've had with children. The house is in a wonderful setting (stunning views) and gives you the option of relaxing by the pool or venturing to the coast, mountains or Granada. The suites are large and decorated very tastefully.... More

I have just spent 10 days at La Finca with my teenage daughter and it´s been a really effective way to unwind. La Finca is about peace, relaxation, inspiring food, and a good sized pool to dip into and beat the heat. The suites are spacious and the furniture tasteful and homely. The whole place shows thoughtfulness in design and... More

Chris and Scarlett are great hosts and share their beatuiful villa with a great view overlooking the Lecrin valley. The rooms and beds are great and the evening or lunch view with a glass of wine is well worth the effort to get here. It's only 30-40 mins from Granada. Offers a peaceful country break from a busy city tour... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so lucky to have enough space for everyone to make themselves at home at La Finca - either choosing quiet alone time or time with other guests. When we have guests who are not keen on animals we look after them in our corral - away from the house. This... More

This wonderful B&B is located only 30 minutes south of Granada, which provides a perfect location to explore not only Granada, but the nearby Sierra Nevada mountains and the beaches to the south.
