This villa far exceeded our expectations, it was set in the most beautiful location and had everything that we needed for a week off work! I travelled with 14 of my friends and we are definitely thinking about returning next year.
The owners were extremely friendly and very helpful. The booking was easy and the information we received about the villa and surrounding area was brilliant.
The best aspects for us were the massive pool and the outside courtyard with the outside kitchen, where we spent every evening cooking up a storm and there was plenty of space around the table for everyone!
The villa is beautifully decorated and in great condition, plenty of space and there's absolutely everything you need for a great holiday.
It was great value for money so if you're thinking of booking this place then - do it!!

“Fantastic stay in fabulous scenery”

The Almendillo is a sprawling, well kept, fully equipped villa which was perfect for our delighted group of 17 family members aged 5-75. Every nook and window overlooks the wonderful scenery of sprawling olive trees as far as the eye can see.
It is clear that Mike the owner cares deeply for the satisfaction and enjoyment of the experience and the results are clear. The rooms are comfortable and large, keeping the rustic feel of the finca.
The place is large enough to accommodate quiet periods of contemplation for those seeking it while squealing children need not be kept from their games.
The finca is blissfully isolated and the road to it winds along a dirt road between olive groves and farms, so that the feel of it is being all alone in the countryside. At nights it is so quiet you can hear the whole valley echoing with cicadas, owls and foxes. Hares hop among the olives and the finca cats make sure any wild guest stays out of its stout walls.
I wholeheartedly recommend the Almendrillo as the perfect getaway for large groups looking for remote bliss.

We stayed at El Almendrillo from 7-14th September 2013. From the moment we booked to when we left, Mikes (the owner) help was invaluable. The Finca is just stunning with the individual bedroom to the 3 kitchens! The outside is a must! The views from the poolside were spectacular, lucky as that is where all 3 generations spent most of the time. Mike's directions and guide were spot on and we left only to find the supermarket and the waterfall, which was an amazing find. The whole family cannot wait to come back and would recommend this beautiful place to everyone.

“Amazing week in an amazing place”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed at the Finca for a week in August 2013 to celebrate our collective 30th birthdays. I'm sure I speak for the whole group when I say the Finca well exceed our expectations, it was beautiful and felt like a real home, from the moment we walked in tired and hungry to be greeted with a welcome pack of bread, cheese and beers to the moment we left we had the best time. The house is stunning, each room is unique and the owners' style shines through, this makes it feel like so much more than a holiday home. The outdoor spaces are wonderful, each have been cleverly thought through, there's always a shady spot to move to, and each area sits the whole group, so everyone can be together at once, or equally find a quiet spot alone to read a book. Every little thing had been thought of in the house, and it was stocked with plenty of huge pans and crockery to feed twenty people each night! We only left the villa once to have dinner in the local restaurant, but I could have happily stayed within the Finca for the full 7 days and not got tired of it! We spent most of the week around the pool, staring at the incredible unspoilt views across the Sierra Nevada. Mike was a pleasure to deal with in the lead up to the holiday, answering our every question, and was so hospitable when it came to arranging rooms and cots etc for the kids. He also had loads of helpful tips about the local area, and car hire, and his directions to the villa were spot on! Booking a holiday for twenty people is sometimes tricky but Mike made it easy. We didn't' want to leave, and are already talking about going back in a couple of years.
