What a fantastic stay my young daughter and II had at Alemendra. We liked everything about it (although we were unlucky with the weather): the wonderful citrus groves, the enclosed central garden, swimming pool, and friendly owners who were staying at the finca during our visit and were able to recount to us how they came to create this beautiful place, all contributed to our very successful holiday in Oct/Nov 2012.
The studio itself was well-designed and exceptionally well-equipped with everything needed for self-catering. As we stayed during half term my daughter made friends with other children who were staying at the same time as well as with the owner's two charming children.
The number one highlight was a neighbouring shaggy, white dog who visited us daily. My daughter went out first thing in the very early morning torch in hand to play with him. He was her gentle and friendly campanion all week and I had to drag her away in order to visit the gorgeous sandy nearby beaches and the picturesque white andulusian perched town a short drive away that had a wealth of very good quality restaurants. Needless to say, there were tears when we left and we made enquiries about adopting Riley the dog (also known as sheep becasue of his shaggy white coat) but were told that he was well-loved and cared for by the neighbouring farm. My daughter keeps a picture of him by her bed!!!
Overall we had an excellent time and I very much enjoyed discovering this part of Spain and hope to return next summer to El Sueno.
