“Gorgeous Rural Escape”
Reviewed August 20, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

people found this review helpful

What a wonderful place to escape busy city life. Peace, sunshine, swimming and welcoming hosts Mick, Pirkho & Stig (the dog) who guided us in when we got lost arriving from the airport and kept us supplied with home grown olive oil, lemons, figs and eggs as well as a host of useful local tips.

The studio was fantastic value for money. Everything you could possibly need for a stress free stay. Everything feels clean and new.

Although the Finca is remote (follow Mick's directions properly and you will be fine) it's only a ten minute drive to the nearest beach at Puerto Rey and we perfectly placed to explore the whole coast and Cabo De Gata.

Our favourite part of the holiday was lying by the pool with the wind rustling through the orange groves, the scent of the fig trees and the hum of the crickets.

“The perfect place to unwind in a stunning part of Spain.”
Reviewed April 17, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

person found this review helpful

Finca Arboleda is a lovely oasis of calm but near enough to the towns of Vera and Mojacar for restaurants and bars if wanted. We had a fantastic time, chilling by the pool nestled among the orange groves, swallows, hoopoes and bee-eaters flying overhead. Total relaxation.

Mick and Pirkko are fabulous hosts and also had lovely home produce on offer: free range eggs from very happy hens, fig and apricot jam, extra virgin olive oil from their own olive grove. And Stig the dog is brilliant. If you don't like dogs you wouldn't even notice he was there but if you do and call him over he's the loveliest, friendliest dog - loves a rub on the belly.

The location is also perfect for the unspoilt Cabo de Gata coastline, the magical Sierra de los Filabres and Sierra Cabrera and the hidden coves near Villaricos. This is a fabulous part of Spain and Finca Arboleda is perfect place to use as a base for exploring or for just soaking up the sun by the pool.

Thanks Mick and Pirkko. We'll be back some day soon...!

“The place to stay in Spain for independant travelers to relax and unwind”
Reviewed September 15, 2010 for a stay in August 2010

If you are looking for a private getaway location on the Costa Del Sol then this is it.

We hired the Apartment for a week and were absolutely delighted with the place. It is well appointed and so comfortable. We could have stayed longer .

Michael & Pirkko and Stig are the consummate hosts and they helped first time travelers to Spain with local knowledge and tips. It is such a romantic place and peaceful place. I even Proposed to my girlfriend by the pool..

Just off the beaten track to give you that quiet atmosphere but close enough to the beaches, towns and city of Almera (1 hours drive) the location is wonderful. From daily swims in the pool to eating figs from the tree this place has it all.

Our hosts were Michael & Pirkko were there for us when we needed something but left us to our own devices when they were not needed. They are very beautiful people and I recommend them and Finca Arboleda to everyone as a hidden gem in Spain.

We flew in from Australia and will definitely be returning as the journey is worth the experience. Thank you Michael & Pirkko you made our stay so enjoyable.

“Secluded, charming, relaxing environment”
Reviewed June 1, 2010 for a stay in May 2010

We stayed one week in the 1-bed/2-person Orange Grove apartment, which is spacious, well-furnished, well-equipped, and decorated in a tasteful, homely fashion.
We had intended to use Finca Arboleda as a base and venture out every day of our stay to the nearby beaches and sights. But the setting is so charming, we found ourselves most days simply relaxing in and by the pool, set amongst the orange & fig trees, looking out from the hilltop vista towards the sea.
There are plenty of restaurants a short drive away in Vera, Puerto Rey and Garrucha, including very reasonably priced places, but we enjoyed most buying local produce and using the barbeque provided.
This is the perfect spot to enjoy the sun and beaches of Costa de Almeria in a setting that is in absolute contrast to the stiffling crush of concrete apartments that are strung all along the coast of Spain. Finca Arboleda is semi-rural, somewhat secluded, perfectly charming, ideal for relaxation, and still in easy reach of beaches, etc.

“We have stayed at Finca Arboleda three times and would highly recommend it for a holiday”
Reviewed November 24, 2009 for a stay in February 2009

We have stayed at Finca Arboleda three times - the first occasion it was just the two of us and we stayed in the Apartment; the other two holidays we were joined by our son and stayed in the Villa. Both properties are clean, comfortable and well equipped, with tables, chairs,barbecues and sun loungers outside. Pirrko and Michael are friendly and always ready to help in any way they can, without being intrusive. Finca Arboleda is in a rural situation and the garden has an abundance of fruit and olive trees. We have always been there in the winter so have not been able to fully appreciate the lovely swimming pool, although both the male family members have used it. There are shops, bars and restaurants within a 10 minute drive and many interesting towns and beautiful sandy beaches in the area. We have just booked our fourth visit for the three of us to stay in the Villa again in February/March 2010 and are looking forward to wonderful freshly squeezed orange juice each morning, eggs from the Finca's chickens, relaxing in the garden in the sunshine and teasing Michael about his football team! If you enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday in very pleasant surroundings, yet within easy reach of all amenities, you cannot go far wrong with Finca Arboleda.

Lovely location in Rural Spain, yet only a 10 minute drive down to the bustling coastal towns of Vera Playa, Garucha and Mojacar.

“Possibly the best self catering accommodation in Almeria”
Reviewed October 25, 2009 for a stay in January 2009

This was our third stay at Finca Arboleda and again it did not disappoint .Michael and Pirkko, the owners, were as welcoming ,friendly and helpful as we have come to expect. Nothing is too much trouble for them to ensure their guests enjoy their stay to the full.
The accommodation is spotless and comfortable and furnished with all that you will need including Sky television and Internet Wifi.
The tranquil garden with its magnificent swimming pool is surrounded by orange trees from which you can pick oranges for eating or juicing.
The " working " towns of Vera and Garrucha are a few minutes drive away and there you will find supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars and a once a week large street market. A few minutes from Garrucha brings you to the sea-side resort of Mojachar which has all the usual sea-side shops bars and cafes.
Anyone looking for a holiday that has welcoming and helpful owners, home from home accommodation, a tranquil garden for relaxing in,a swimming pool for cooling in, a nearby sea-side resort, convenient local shops, markets and restaurants - you've found it!
