“Fantastic”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Peter and Ernest are the kindest and most caring hosts of this lovely Finca. We,ve spent a fantastic weekend at this beautiful site. It was fabulous how the hosts took care of us, every detail was carefully chosen and especially the food was excellent. Peter loves to cook and we have had some excellent dinners, and the breakfast was a special treat every morning. We can highly reccomend the Finca El Otero because the hosts love what they are doing.

The food was amazing and the beds were really comfy, the weather was lovely as well, we adored the stay. Peter is a great cook and Ernest was really friendly they made us feel right at home. They have a beautiful fire and Peter and Ernest are always happy to help out with directions and food. It was awesome.

Room Tip: They are all lovely but the one on the top floor is biggest.

Finca el Otero is charming - in every sense. The room was very nice with our own private balcony, chairs to laze in to read in the morning sun and lovely views across the valley. Ernest and Peter were the perfect hosts, ensuring we had everything to make us as comfortable as we could possibly be - log fires in the evening, plenty of wine, lots of advice about where to go during our weeks' stay (you definitely need a car) and delicious and innovative food to the extent that we ate most of our evening meals there too. We were even provided with 12 grapes for the New Year's Eve village 'tradition'! Nothing was too much trouble, and it really did feel like we were visiting friends in their home. Thank you both for a lovely and relaxing break.

Booked a week away over New Year and was not disappointed. Set in the mountains outside a village 15 mind from coast and 30 min from Alacante airport the vital has s fabulous view and staff to match. Peter and Ernest could not be better hosts and nothiwas too much trouble. This felt like visit a frields home than a hotel. We were offered advice on places to visit which was helpful. The accomodatiin was very comfortable with our own balcony. The food was faculous and doubt anything could match this locally. Each meal was an exciting experience. We had a child in our group who had a birthday and had a cake baked for her - yum! There is a great pool which will be great in summer but at 11degrees a bit too chilly to venture in. The view is over the local country and you can see the coast and star gazing great. I have no hesitation in recommending people to stay here but do not tell too many others as I want to return!!

Room Tip: We had suite at top which was great

The owners are great, really nice people, and they are wonderful at the kitchen!
We recomend this place also for winter time, taking a relaxing glass of wine in front of a warm fire...
You can also visit this place with your babies, they prepare tou special meals for them.
We will come back soon!!

Finca el Otero was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Spain. The home is situated up on the hills with beautiful views out to the Mediterannean. Peter and Ernest are wonderful hosts and did everything to make our stay special. The breakfasts each morning were so fresh, creative, and delicious - and quite filling!

We really enjoyed exploring the surrounding scenic areas - Altea, Guadalest, and Villajoyosa. But our favorite activity was visiting the local wineries. We highly recommend planning a visit to Enrique Mendoza, as this was our favorite winery we visited in Southern Spain. They have a really nice and interesting tour of the property, followed by tastings afterwards.Their red wines were very good, especially the local Monastrell varieties.

It was so relaxing coming back to Finca El Otero each evening, especially the night we stayed in and had a fantastic meal prepared by Peter and Ernest. This was a really special meal and one of our best in Spain. We enjoyed just talking to Peter and Ernest and always being welcomed by their lovely little dogs - we felt like old friends just passing through!

We highly recommend Finca el Otera for a relaxing getaway, delicious food, and a great home base for exploring the local seaside towns and wineries.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to Finca El Otero, a beautiful property set high on a terraced hillside above the village of Aigues on the Costa Blanca, Alicante, Spain. Our bed and breakfast offering is an elegant and comfortable 'get away' destination for peace and quiet, rest, solitude and time to read and relax. A dinner service is available to our guests by arrangement. Our promise is 'Feeling at ease, feel's like home!' For a large part of the year the weather is perfect for soaking up the sun and enjoying the swimming pool or nearby beaches. In the few winter months the fire places ensure warmth for memorable cosy fireside moments. For the more energetic guests, the immediate surrounds are perfect for cycling and walking or if preferred Aigues town is a mere stroll away in order to access the delights of a typical Spanish village. Venturing a little further provides access to the nearby centres for some retail therapy and entertainment. Although Aigues is conveniently located, car rental would be important for guests wanting to explore the area. Hosts Ernest and Peter from South Africa have settled in Spain for the wonderful weather and relaxed lifestyle. 'We love the fact that everything is so close here yet far enough too. It is only a short drive down to the seaside and nearby towns. It is equally wonderful to return to the peace and quiet. We hope to welcome you at this special destination, our haven on the Mediterranean.' ... more   less
