“Simply fantastic!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Luckily somebody advised us to go her as it is just fantastic!

We (2 adults +1 baby) stayed her 9 days this April and we booked the red apartment. It is very well equipped and the large terrace offers a great view. Inside the kitchen offers everything you need. For our baby, the very friendly owner placed a babybed in our bedroom and a she also gave us a baby seat for our terrace.

Breakfast was served in the building next to the pool and it offers very nice and wide views overlooking the valley while you are enjoying your fresh prepared breakfast. What a privilege it is to start your day this way.

The apartment and the whole area are nice decorated and it is all very clean. It is a very quiet and peaceful. Just a 30 minutes’ drive to the city centre of Malaga (and airport) and there are lots of nice places to go to in the near area.

All in all the owner has been able to make this a very special place with a fantastic service! We hope to get back some day!

For those of you who like quality: We have discovered an excellent spot. It was at Finca Sonrisa, a top B&B, in the hills of Malaga. Here we just got everything we needed: a luxurious studio situated in a beautiful garden with very old olive trees, what a sight that was! And every morning a delicious breakfast with fresh bread and Spanish fruit. There is a vegetable garden and you are permitted to use the fresh tomatoes, peppers, courgettes, herbs, etc for your dinner. You can even make use of the wood oven and the kitchen outside and we sometimes had dinner with the other guests, organized by Joan. Excellent! Finca Sonrisa is situated in ‘el campo’, which means that it is really quiet. Golf is in the neighbourhood. If you want to go out or have some nice shopping, you can visit Malaga, Marbella, Granada, etc.
Go and experience the atmosphere of Finca Sonrisa yourself! We will definitely come back!

What a beautiful scenery, atmosphere and Luxury treatment at an affordable price at Finca Sonrisa. We had never been to the South of Spain but t.his was the best place for a first encounter. Everything is within reasonable distance and the home base of the Finca is unique. Especially the garden and the nature that is surrounding the Finca is
Unsurpassed, please go and meet the charming host of this Finca, Joan, you won't be dissapointed

Beautiful view, great apartments: you really feel at home immediately. Every day Joan brings you an excellent breakfast. Service is great. The apartments are provided with olive oil from the garden and sometimes you can even use vegetables from the garden to prepare your own meals. Definitely a place to come back to!!!

This is the place! The atmosphere is unmatched. Wonderful views and strolling around the property is a treat in itself. One can mix with other guests around the pool and BBQ or simply lounge outside one's room. Finca Sonrisa is near to excellent restaurants and walking around one of Spain's famous "white villages" is lots of fun. However, the best of Finca Sonrisa is the hostess, Joan. She provides a level of service and comfort that is unparalled. Your breakfast will overwhelm you. Fruits, pasteries, bread, cereal or whatever you might like upon request. Again, you can take breakfast in your room or by the pool. Joan will make you feel like family during your visit. Without a doubt, once you have been to Finca Sonrisa, you will start planning your next visit. During our visit one of the guests cooked up a wonderful seafood dinner on the outside grill. The food and comardarie were fantastic. We took day trips to many places like Malaga, Marbella, Ronda and others. So whatever you do, be sure and include Finca Sonrisa on your agenda.

Room Tip: The private casita is great.
