We truly enjoyed our two nights stay on the way from Alicante to Granada at the Almond Tree Villa. It was the perfect place in between touristic hubs in the middle of Andalucia with a british dash! :-) Alastair: thanks for the interesting discussions Martyn: you prepared for us the best food on our whole trip Thank you both for...

Having visited in 2010, a trip to the region would not have been complete without returning to Almond Tree Villa. Alastair and Martyn continue to provide a fabulous environment for comfort and relaxation. The villa itself has undergone some tweaks with the addition of a beautiful mezzanine style seating area in the lounge, a covered verandah area on the terrace... More

We stopped here for an overnight on way through Spain, so glad we did. Martyn & Alastair are such good hosts. Room meets all requirements, pool very inviting best bit though is the food and hospitality. Not far from motorway so easy stopover, takes a little finding but don't give up.

Yes, amazing I think is the best adjective to describe this wonderful place. Every summer we go to Andalucia to relax and enjoy some good time and this time we wanted to cross the border of that region to discover more and...heaven was just around the bend! The villa is beautiful and perfectly located, up on the hills among lots... More

Martyn and Alastair are very considerate hosts and the environment is wonderfully calm and warm. A terrific selection of music in the background amplifies the sense of peace and well-being. While the house is rural and surrounded by farms and mountains, it is very easy to connect to tourist spots on local highways.

We have spent two fabulous relaxing weeks in this haven in the hills above Lorca. (Albeit separated by two years!) We had to return, just to remind ourselves of the welcome, the food, the relaxed atmosphere, the view and the haven from summer on the beaches in Spain. It was easily as good, if not better than last time! Alastair... More

I recently spent a week at this great B&B in Spain. The setting, in the hills above Puerto Lumbreras, is extraordinary, with panoramic views over the adjoining countryside. The rooms are clean and comfortable, with everything you need, including coffee-making facilities. The pool is fabulous and Alastair and Martyn are perfect hosts. The food is also terrific as well. So,... More
