Finca Gran Cerros is a traditional old finca, or farmhouse, nestling in the Andalusian hills just a few minutes' drive from Alora and within 40 minutes of Malaga airport. Sitting on a mountainside overlooking a tranquil secluded valley, mainly laid to olive groves, prepare to fall in love with the breathtaking views from Finca Gran Cerros with the Sierra de las Nieves (Mountains of the Snow) as the distant backdrop. Finca Gran Cerros offers just three, lovingly restored, self-contained suites; a large, airy loft-style two bedroom apartment suite and two traditional one bedroom 'casitas'. Each of these is a relaxing home-from-home that comes with its own private outdoor space, shower room and kitchen. Newly renovated and refurbished, our accommodation combines traditional features with modern comforts, including wifi, air conditioning, ‘rainforest’ showers, bluetooth speakers, Netflix TVs and Nespresso machines. Our stylish, bright, fresh interiors are designed with exacting attention to detail, taking subtle influences from Andalusia’s rich history and the intricate geometry of Moorish design. Here, you can relax and enjoy the views from the lush terraced garden with its large swimming pool, separate jacuzzi and numerous seating and lounging spaces.

We stayed shortely after the refurbishment in June 2019 and had a thoroughly relaxing time. It's completely out of the way, in the back country beyond Álora, in Andalucia. Great views of the valley and the mountains beyond, great apartments, and amazingly quiet. The hosts have done a great job of the refurbishment and all the little touches and thoughtfulness they put into the experience makes it worth the effort to get there. We are planning to go back... providing it's not overbooked!

Hi Nick, Thanks so much for review us on TripAdvisor! We really do appreciate it. It's great to know that you had an enjoyable experience and liked the peace and quiet, and tranquility, of the location. We'd love to welcome you back again, and next season we'll have a third (and final) apartment renovated and up and running! Very best wishes, Michael and Shaun

We spent a fantastic week at Finca Gran Cerros where we absolutely spoilt by our hosts Shaun and Michael. The food and service was constantly above and beyond, and our hosts could not be more attentive. The apartment and villa is stunning, with plenty of different areas to relax, eat, and sunbath. This is the perfect getaway for those who are looking for a relaxing couple of days, or acts as a great base for those looking to explore Andalusia. Shaun and Michael really do get the 'little touches' right, with homemade candles, jam, and other amenities as well. Breakfasts are sizeable and drink measures are very good as well. Will definitely be returning!!

Hi Tom, Thanks for your review - we really appreciate it! It's great to hear that you had such a great experience here and enjoyed the food and drinks on offer (and that we've got our portion control right! 😂), as well as the homemade jams and room scents! We'd love to welcome you both again very soon. With best wishes, Michael and Shaun

If you’re looking for a wild party, complete with karaoke and Mexican hats……………...then Finca Gran Cerros definitely isn’t for you! If you’re looking for tranquility, dining under a star-lit sky and waking to the sound of bird song, then you’re in for a treat. A rural retreat, nestled in the countryside and hills of Álora, Finca Gran Cerros provides a peaceful haven, yet doesn’t deprive you of the luxuries of life. With the possibility of breakfast and dinner being served on your own private terrace, to having drinks served by the swimming pool, this intimate accommodation experience is hard to beat. Although you might not wish to leave Finca Gran Cerros (and I’d understand why!), there are a host of places to visit if you wish to do so, within reasonable travelling distance by car. We wanted a ‘break from it all’ so chose to stay for two nights and made the most of this ideal location and it’s stunning views of far-reaching, countryside, hills and mountains. Relaxing by the swimming pool and watching beautiful red-coloured dragonflies dance around the numerous shrubs, trying to spy hidden birds chatting in the palm trees or just looking at the beautiful vistas, whilst meandering around the gardens, was enough to keep us from roaming too far. And then spotting my very first shooting star, in the crystal clear night sky, was just ‘icing on the cake’ for me! The accommodation at Finca Gran Cerros reflects the setting you find yourself in: tasteful and relaxing. Having undergone extensive renovations, the apartment we chose was perfectly presented. Being able to wake up in the morning and look out across the hills, without having to get out of bed, is certainly something I recommend. The owners, Michael and Shaun, have clearly expended a lot of time and effort in ensuring Finca Gran Cerros is somewhere guests will not want to leave from! Their great hospitality, friendliness, attention to detail and cooking skills make it a challenge to want to visit anywhere else. I wish them every success. We have actually booked to re-visit Finca Gran Cerros, which probably says more than any review can.

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at Finca Gran Cerros, its hard to find the right words which fully describe just what a pleasure it was to be there. Firstly, hats off to Michael and Shaun. They have created somewhere special to stay, not only is the accommodation suberb in terms of decor and facilities, but its full of their lovely little touches which elevate it above then rest. They are the best of hosts, attentive, friendly, welcoming (even at 3am after our plane had been delayed) but discreet and unassuming. We had planned to do a lot more sightseeing when there but ended up just enjoying the lovely pool area, warm sun and their fine cooking. We would recommend eating in, its was a very reasonable 15eu for good cooking and a glass of good wine. It was great to have b'fast and dinner served on the apartment terrace, very relaxing and great to watch the sunset above the mountains. There is a lot to do within a short drive (next time for us) and the Finca is a great base for touring and/or unwinding. We can't recommend it highly enough which is testimony to the hard work Michael and Shaun have put into creating their lovely retreat. My wife shed a few tears as we left. Ashleigh & Donny

Donny and Ashleigh! Where to start! First of all, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We're blown away by how much you enjoyed your stay here. You were the perfect guests and it was so lovely hosting you, getting to know you both and spending time chatting (we need to see more pics of Bailey though next time!). As two guys with no previous experience of hospitality, it's so lovely to hear that we're on the right track and that you had such a great stay; that's all we ever want! We'd love to welcome you back again very soon (and not just for the shortbread and the oatcakes, which are so delicious that we're eking them out!). Very best wishes, Michael & Shaun x

We spent two nights at Finca Gran Cerros and the location is truly stunning. Views across the mountains and room around you to breath it all in. Night time is magical with the stars above you and fairy lights dotted around the garden. You are made to feel so welcome and the service and attention to detail is very much appreciated. Breakfast on your terrace looking out to the mountains and when you're ready there is a beautiful big pool to cool down in. It really is the perfect getaway, relaxing and calm, a good place to think and chill. We will be going back again very soon. Highly recommended.
