We stayed for two nights with our family just after Christmas and would strongly recommend la finca. Our two girls loved the dogs, cats and chickens, they didn't want to leave. Chris and Scarlett proved to be the best hosts we could wish for. We had beautiful meals cooked by Scarlett and great breakfast by Chris. The walk down to... More

Scarlett and Chris provide you with a warm welcome to their wonderful piece of heaven in the picturesque Sierra Nevada in Andalusia. Chris is a demon in the kitchen producing delicious meals and Scarlett has a wealth of knowledge at her fingertips about the local area if you can bear to leave. You are made to feel that you are...

This is a really lovely place. We had a spacious and comfy room with stunning views from our own terrace over a valley full of olive groves and orange trees. Scarlett and Chris are so welcoming and made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. It was our first family holiday away with our 2 month old son... More

We had a wonderful week with Scarlett and Chris in their beautiful Finca. They have done such an amazing job creating this beautiful place. Chris's cooking is amazing, and I highly recommend eating supper there. The location is good for visiting Al Hambra and also for many great mountain walks (but you definitely need your own transport). Children will enjoy... More

La Finca is a magical place. From the moment you step inside, you're greeted with breathtaking views and a calming atmosphere. Scarlett and Chris are warm and welcoming hosts with wicked senses of humour. I had great fun chatting and laughing (a lot!) with them over meals on the terrace. They provided me with very detailed instructions on how to... More

From the moment we were picked up at our hotel in Granada by Scarlett, we were transformed to their world of living at La Finca. We took the unique scenic drive and were met at their home by Chris, Scarlett's husband. We sat on their breezy terrace-one of many, with fantastic views of the surrounding area.

We were picked up by Scarlett at our hotel at 10 am. Had a beautiful drive to her and Chris' country home La Finca about 30 minutes from Granada. Enjoyed cooking/preparing Tapas and drinking wine in her very well equipped kitchen. Loved the fabulous scenery and their hospitality along with delicious tapas! Returned by 8 pm. Thank you!
