“~ Almost Heaven ~”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in September 2011

The welcoming aroma from the fruit vines
Oranges, grapes, pomegranates & lime.
Hardly prepare you for the wonder inside
A place you must savour, to believe the description
Only if there in Person, you will see it's not fiction
A wonderful mansion amid mountains so vast
Picture perfect as if set in a cast
You, from the beginning will want the holiday to last
The swimming pool built in a perfect design .
Tennis, swings, table tennis too !
giving a variety of things to do
You find it so easy to lay back and enjoy
The peace and tranquillity you don't want to destroy
But, your on holiday!!! you MUST go site see!
Visit the old town, that's a must, believe me!
Then to the fiesta in the neighbouring town
Have a few drinks in the Tucan, it's sound ;)
All the while wishing, you were homeward bound
Not to the real world, filled with stress that life brings
but back to the "dream" you have found yourself in
Whether it's a party,a get to gether,
whatever the reason may be
The perfect location without a doubt it must be
A place called Finca Lucia just by the Mediterranean sea...

With thanks to Wayne for opening his home to allow others to "pretend" even if only for a short time, on how life really should be for us all.... But not forgetting to mention Jane and Tony who were very attentive to our needs...Although our Jane needs to sort out that euro percentage thing lol (nudge, nudge Jannnnnnnnnnne) From Wilma & family (Scotland)

“Highly reccomended, A holiday we will remember & treasure”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in April 2012

Where to start, Wayne & the team were super helpful & friendly, Easy to drive to from Airport, we didn't explore much but super markets etc were very good . We stocked up and stayed at the fanatic villa really well equipped, Fresh oranges everyday from the grounds, We all thoroughly enjoined our stay, playing Tennis , Spacious is understatement, there was 18 of us and it never felt crowded the crowning glory has to be the pool & out door area,so many perfect places to sit & relax. BBQ area etc All the bedrooms were so spacious & well decorated, very Comfortable Beds in rooms 'husband wanted to take it home with us !' , lovely fresh modern Bathrooms , the main entrance Dining area has a very grand feel to it, the Kitchen was a dream to use plenty of work space for BBQ preparations Cocktail making & lunch making all at the same time. We were 3 families aged 2-19 years & my Father , we had lots of rain (unusual for time of year) but its didn't deter us at all the kids swam in the heated pool all day the indoor space was great so really didn't matter to us on the sunny days we made good use of outdoor space was truly a fantastic get away for all the Family, there were places to eat out but we liked being at the villa its so homely, plus no one had to drive stocked up on local fresh produce ample selection of Wines & fresh meats in nearby supermarkets. would need a car hire ideally. thinking about it now makes me want to book again, its set off the main road, our daughter enjoyed a walk up the lane to see the animals hens etc its not overlooked & feels very private which was perfect for us. suited to families or couples holidays who want a little luxury , sun & relaxation , ample seating, sun beds etc. Highly Recommend, we flew with Monarch to Almera, Nice little airport easy to navigate to & from , Car hire was similar to the price of return transfers. Looking forward to returning Many thanks

“My magnificent wedding venue”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Firstly I must say a big thank you to the owner of Finca Lucia for helping to make my dream a reality. The villa made a fantastic wedding venue. Nothing was too much trouble. He arranged staff to look after us and our guests for the wedding. He put us in touch with a wedding planner who planned/co-ordinated everything to the last detail. Our wedding day was absolutely amazing, the attention to detail was second to none. As a surprise for me it was arranged for the local goat herder to stand with his herd so there bells could tinkle whilst we ate paella. Overall I don't think you could find a more magical venue to host a wedding. Hopefully the attached photos will do it justice.

I am honoured you chose my home for your wedding setting, and thrilled that you enjoyed your day so much. The goats aren't normally part of a wedding package - but it certainly made for some great photos!!

“A par excellent villa”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 for a stay in May 2011

To say this villa and holiday was excellent is an understatement. If there is such a thing as a perfect holiday then we had it at Finca Lucia. We wanted to do something special for my wife's 80 birthday so decided to take all our family (10 adults and five children) to Finca Lucia for one week. It was everything you could wish for: plenty of room for all of us and plenty of space outside so we did not get under each others feet. We made good use of the excellent facilities the pool, the tennis court, table tennis, BBQ - we had the pool heated just in case and this proved to be worth-while - we had difficulty getting the grandchildren out of the pool! The villa was immaculately clean and the grounds well tended. The owner, Wayne, was extremely helpful and is prepared to go to any lengths to ensure that you really enjoy your holiday. The management team were excellent. They were attentive without being intrusive and their local knowledge was invaluable to us with advice on restaurants, bars, super markets, shows, etc. They even arranged and took us to hire a car in the area. I don't think the photos of the villa really do it justice - it is just wonderful. An added bonus is that it is situated in a wonderful unspoilt area - as I have read somewhere it is an undiscovered gem.

I am thrilled we were able to offer you the right place for you to celebrate. I have to agree, having had many celebrations there myself, it does lend itself to parties and large groups, and at the same time being homely enough for when there is just the two of us.
I am pleased you made use of all the facilities, and fully understand you not wanting to leave. It is also comforting to know that when I am not there, the property and its guests are in good hands. Thank you for your very kind comments, I sincerely hope you will be able to return one day.

Kindest regards

“Total relaxation in luxurious villa near golf courses”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I have attended this villa three times now. The first couple of times was with a group of friends and family who hire this for the week. There is something for everyone including massive kitchen for great dinner parties. Large bbq area - sky tv - tennis court- wifi and not to mention magnificient size swimming pool.

The last time we went in May was for a wedding. The venue was laid out magnificiently and made an ideal setting to host a wedding.

The owner of this villa will try and accommodate your every needs and is an expert on golf courses which are very local.

“Great villa..magnificent outside area.....would definitely return!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We loved our stay at villa Finca Lucia, the outside space made it amazing............barbecues a plenty with tennis, table tennis and swimming in the gorgeous pool mixed in! The villa is spotlessly clean which is really important to us. The Management company and Wayne, the owner, were extremely helpful providing lots of useful local information.
There were 12 of us ranging from 14 to 73 and we all had a fab time, the villa is so spacious, we would love to return. Thank you so much for a fantastic week.
