“Amazing retreat from busy reality!”

We were two families with two toddlers (15 months and 22 months).

We absolutely loved the Finca and it's an amazing place to relax and rewind. Kitchen with everything you need, amazing bbq, plenty of outdoor furniture, big pool with some pool toys, air-con, great wifi, comfy beds, fresh towels & toiletries.

It was so nice to sit in the big outdoor round bed with a drink and look at the stars/enjoy the sound of nature. The host was very accomedating and ensured we had a great stay.

Very easy to drive into Alora and shop, village has bakery, butcher and a big supermarket.

Only small con was that the grass was not really possible to run around on, as it was the spikey type and hence not good for bare feet.

Would definately both recommend the Finca and also return myself!

Thank you for your kind comments, and glad to hear that you enjoyed your holiday. Sadly this is the only kind of grass
that seems to survive the sunshine and the long dry spells.

“An ideal home from home”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

I had a truly great holiday staying at this apartment. Catching some late summer sun, while sipping on ice cold drinks and chilling by the swimming pool. Incredible views and a peaceful setting. I would not hesitant to visit again. The pool was much bigger than I had imagined!!

“Perfect retreat ”
Reviewed October 3, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Beautiful house 30 minute drive from Malaga. Amazing surroundings overlooking the mountains, the most tranquil and relaxing setting.

House has everything you need, is very clean and has all the mod-cons. Loved the big pool and the roof terrace, perfect for a late afternoon glass of local wine or gin and tonics with lemons picked from the trees in the garden. Also amazing terrace with large table and plenty of chairs perfect for alfresco dining. I'll definitely be coming back!!

“Fantastic location, beautiful villa”
Reviewed September 24, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed at the finca in September last year, to catch the last of the summer sunshine and had a wonderful time. The house is kitted out with just about everything you could possibly need while on holiday, and the location is fantastic.
Great views of the rolling countryside and convenient distance into Alora town means it is peaceful, but close enough to amenities, shops, restaurants etc. The swimming pool is an excellent bonus, and the verandah and roof terrace are perfect for lounging during the day, or sundowners at night.
Cannot recommend this beautiful place highly enough - can't wait to go back!

“This place is heaven”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Second visit to this beautiful finca and would recommend it over and over.

It's the perfect place to relax and have a peaceful break. The house itself is kitted out to a very high standard, very comfortable and clean. The gardens, patio and pool area look across the most incredible views of the valley.

Alora town has all the local amenities you would need during your stay but if you are happy to venture further afield there is plenty to do in nearby Marbella/Puerto Banus.

I can't wait to go back.

“Beautiful views, huge pool, great roof terrace!”
Reviewed September 18, 2015 for a stay in June 2014

The views are amazing and the garden and pool are just beautiful. Shops are a short drive away and we really enjoyed the roof terrace in the evening.
Great for a relaxing sunshine holiday!
