“One of the best holidays .....ever”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

We joined a walking group at the end of November 2011 and had a fantastic time .
We received a very warm welcome from the hosts Sue and Gordon,,room was spacious as was the bed !
The walks were varied and would could join a choice of 2.. so I was very happy to join the all day walks , whilst my partner was happy with the shorter walks . One day we would take our prepared packed lunch and on alternative days we would have our lunch / tapas at some wonderful scenic bar..
Meals in the evening were varied , either eating in or taxied to a local village ....meals were great and of good quality ..
The others in the group were all a lovely mix of people ,,,and I can see why people come here again and again ,, as much as 3/4 times a year ...
There is a pool and again wonderful cultivated gardens ,, some moorish in their delights and secret corners .. cant wait to go again

Room Tip: Room 7 was excellent and has a bath

Just didn't think it was possible to relax so completely, so quickly. The atmosphere was completely calming, and to help you on your way there are so many quiet corners in which to curl up and read a book or fall asleep. Spectacular views, walks in the hills, absolutely delicious food and blissfully comfortable bed, what more could you ask for?

I don't think I'll be able to write a glowing enough review for this place - it was just wonderful!
On arrival, you immediately feel part of the family - there is no stuffiness about this hotel, it really does feel like you are visiting friends!
It is about an hour away from Malaga, and the drive up is along windy steep roads, but the hotel can arrange a taxi to pick you up from the airport. They will also arrange taxis for days out or evenings out - nothing is too much trouble.
The rooms are so lovely and clean with excellent air conditioning - much needed in those temperatures! The food is wonderful - breakfast is included and then you can opt in for lunch and dinner (if you don't, you're mad!).
The hotel overlooks the town of Archez, and when we visited there was a festival so there was plenty of noise, fireworks and canons going off - but it all adds to the wonderful feel of the place!
If you're looking to be close to Malaga and the bars/clubs of beach life then this place isn't for you. If you're looking for a fab hotel, great pool, great food then it's ideal.

Best holiday in years. Will definitely be back!

Oh dear, our best kept secret hotel has made it to number 1 - so everybody will be going! My wife and I stayed for a walking holiday and there is really nothing to add to all the other reviews praising Sue and Gordon for their outstanding hospitality, food, walking and lovely finca rooms.
But remember the hotel is not in Malaga - far from it. It's in a lovely village about three-quarters of an hour from the airport into the mountains up a windy road and is very quiet and restful and the nightlife is what you and fellow guests make it. Lots of fun and laughter and making new friends around the lounge fire and in the local restaurants.

The walking is wonderful and carefully chosen for reasonably fit (and super-fit) people, being Level 1 and 2. While it's totally relaxing just to stay by the pool the real benefit is being part of an activity holiday - whether walking, painting or writing - and meeting like-minded people.

Aboslutely lovely spot.
The Finca is a peaceful haven after a hard day's walking!
Lovely rooms, beautiful gardens, helpful and friendly hosts. We travelled with friends and were given 2 garden rooms so had our own terrace overlooking the valley and village of Archez - we felt as though we were the only ones there to enjoy the view and tranquility.
The meals at the Finca and those provided in the villages for dinner and tapas lunches were all superb.
Highly recommended for anyone wanting to do lots (of walking), or nothing.

We sayed at the Finca last week and had a wonderful experience. The hosts - Gordon and Sue Kind - could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble and they have managed to create a "house party" atmosphere without losing any of the professionalism that you would expect from a small Hotel. The rooms are a delight with modern bathrooms outstanding. The food is varied, spanish, and delicious with the lunchtime buffet particularly memorable. Evening meals are only on alternate days but that actually ensures you explore the local restaurants of which there are plenty of a high standard and Gordon and Sue are always on hand to advise and sort out taxis.
Views from the Hotel are wonderful and there are some great walks in the area to suit all standards.
We will undoubtedly be back here regularly and already we are teeling friends to take a trip over to the Finca.
