“A HIDDEN GEM”
Reviewed March 8, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

The finca is hidden away among olive and fruit trees with lovely gardens. We stayed in the Old Stables, which is comfortable, equipped with everything you could need and immaculately clean. It proved ideal for a winter break, and excellent value. Michael and Pirkko were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

The position is close enough to the town to make visits to the supermarket very straightforward, and also within easy reach of the main roads for access to coast and mountains. The little resort of Garrucha is 15-20 minutes drive away and has plenty of places for eating out, with fresh-caught fish always available.

We enjoyed exploring the coastline down to Cabo de Gata which is varied and interesting and with some really special places including hidden beaches and little fishing villages. We had also hoped to do some walking in the Sierra de Los Filabres but somehow there wasn't time.

We would certainly like to return to the area - and we won't be looking for different accommodation, so long as Michael and Pirkko have got room for us!

“Semi-rural relaxation amongst olive and fruit trees”
Reviewed October 26, 2009 for a stay in July 2008

The owners were friendly and helpful.
We stayed at the Old Stables (and will return in December 09) which is a modern single level building built on the site of some old stables. There was no air conditioning but fans and careful use of the blinds kept it cool enough. We spent a lot of the time outdoors barbecuing and relaxing. The figs were ripe and the owners Mike and Pirkko allowed us to pick them (delicious!). There is a shared swimming pool that blends in well with the surroundings and it contained non-chlorinated water so it's really pleasant to swim in.
Probably a car is essential to get to the local shops in Vera but you could just have a really relaxing holiday by using it minimally and staying put at Finca Arboleda. If you do choose to travel around then this is a good base because the motorway is only a few minutes drive away.

“Our second fabulous stay!”
Reviewed October 16, 2009 for a stay in September 2008

We stayed with Mick and Pirrko in September 2007 and again September 2008. We had the Old Stables and our friends stayed in the apartment. My wife and I revisited again on our own in 2008. Our stays here have been amongst our best holiday experiences. The properties were both spotlessly clean and were equipped to a very high standard with everything you could possibly need, even a cool box and ice packs for picnics and shopping!
The pool is lovely and is surrounded by olive, fig and fruit trees. It was great having a dip in the pool and then jumping out, picking a fig and relaxing on the pool-side loungers.
The surrounding area has a lot to offer, but to make the most of it you really need a car.
Mick and Pirrko were extremely friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to make sure you had an enjoyable stay. If only all property owners were like them!
We shall certainly be returning in the future and are looking forward to it!
This venue is a jewel in the Vera crown. I really shouldn't be telling you how wonderful this is. It should be my little secret!!!
We wish Mick and Pirrko (and Stig the dog), all the very best for the future. They deserve it! Chris & Cathie (Surbiton, Surrey)

“Ideally situated to explore the Almeria area.”
Reviewed October 3, 2009 for a stay in July 2009

From the excellent beaches to the stunning scenery of The Cabo de Gata National Park, with golf courses and historical buildings the area has something for everyone and Finca Arboleda is the perfect place to start your holiday.
The accomodation in both The Old Stables and the Apartment is clean, modern and extremely well equipped with everything you will need and more!
Mick and Pirrko are always pleased to answer any questions you may have and can provide first hand information on the local area.
My husband and I have stayed at Finca Arboleda on numerous occasions and at different times of year. We have two trips planned in the next few months and are looking forward to our next visit.

“Finca Arboleda, Lovely Accomodation, Great Pool”
Reviewed September 18, 2009 for a stay in September 2009

Finca Arboleda is a 10 minute drive from Vera, which has a well stocked Intermarché Supermarket that is open all week including Sunday. Make sure you print out the Google Map of how to get to Finca Arboleda, we tried to use TomTom with limited success, if we'd have stuck to the (very good) Google Map & Directions supplied, we'd have got there a bit quicker.

We stayed in "The Old Stables" for 7-nights at the beginning of September. Although it said "sleeps 4", our hosts Michael & Pirkko (plus their adorable Lurcher "Stig") added a put-up bed in the second bedroom, and the accomodation was easily big enough for 5 of us (myself, my wife & 3-children; 7, 5 & 5). The Old Stables are of typical design for a modern Spanish appartment. They are clean & modern, decorated & maintained to a high standard. Both bedrooms were very comfortable; the toilet & shower were modern, clean & well maintained.

The remaining living area was a combined lounge (with UK satellite TV), kitchen & dining area; again, tastefully done, comfortable & well maintained. There was also an outside table & chairs for eating in the evening, along with barbecue. We used these every night, as we sat out eating, watching the bats fly around.

The closest beach is "Playa de Puerto Rey", which has very nice sand & very warm water, but only limited shade. We went to the beach one morning; and another day we went to visit Mojácar, stocking up with drinking water at the Fuente (Spring).

Leaving the best bit to last (as is traditional), now on to the Pool. We had intended to do more sightseeing, but Costa Almeria in early September is pretty damn warm. We had already spent 6-nights elsewhere in Spain, and our oldest child was starting to swim, while our two younger children (twins) were also swimming comfortably but with armbands. The pool at Finca Arboleda is stunning, shallow enough for our children at one end, but about 2.1m deep at the other, 5m wide & 10m long. Temperature was either 28 or 29degC each day, and the various Olive/Orange/Pomegranite trees provide a reasonable degree of shade. There are also sun-loungers and sunshades provided. After a week in the pool (usually twice a day 10-1130AM, 5-7PM), all our children were swimming much better, and it's thanks to the time they spent at Finca Arboleda. At the end of the week, our 7 year-old had done 50-lengths (without armbands) in one day (not without rests), and the twin 5 year-olds were both swimming widths & the occasional length without armbands. The accomodation was really nice, but what the children really remember about the holiday is the pool (and Stig!).

Thanks for a great holiday; Neil, Meryl & Family.
