This is it. Joan is the perfect host. Not too much, but there when you need her. The place is immaculate. The design, the materials used, the garden, pool and the common room with breakfast area, it is all stunningly beautiful done. Joan also can direct you to good eateries in town. Breakfast is a feast to wake up for.
The town is about 10 minutes drive, the sea about 20 minutes.
We wouldn't mind staying longer but alas it was fully booked on our departure... We will be back. Thank you Joan, it was a pleasure getting to know you.

Luckily somebody advised us to go her as it is just fantastic!

We (2 adults +1 baby) stayed her 9 days this April and we booked the red apartment. It is very well equipped and the large terrace offers a great view. Inside the kitchen offers everything you need. For our baby, the very friendly owner placed a babybed in our bedroom and a she also gave us a baby seat for our terrace.

Breakfast was served in the building next to the pool and it offers very nice and wide views overlooking the valley while you are enjoying your fresh prepared breakfast. What a privilege it is to start your day this way.

The apartment and the whole area are nice decorated and it is all very clean. It is a very quiet and peaceful. Just a 30 minutes’ drive to the city centre of Malaga (and airport) and there are lots of nice places to go to in the near area.

All in all the owner has been able to make this a very special place with a fantastic service! We hope to get back some day!

For those of you who like quality: We have discovered an excellent spot. It was at Finca Sonrisa, a top B&B, in the hills of Malaga. Here we just got everything we needed: a luxurious studio situated in a beautiful garden with very old olive trees, what a sight that was! And every morning a delicious breakfast with fresh bread and Spanish fruit. There is a vegetable garden and you are permitted to use the fresh tomatoes, peppers, courgettes, herbs, etc for your dinner. You can even make use of the wood oven and the kitchen outside and we sometimes had dinner with the other guests, organized by Joan. Excellent! Finca Sonrisa is situated in ‘el campo’, which means that it is really quiet. Golf is in the neighbourhood. If you want to go out or have some nice shopping, you can visit Malaga, Marbella, Granada, etc.
Go and experience the atmosphere of Finca Sonrisa yourself! We will definitely come back!

What a beautiful scenery, atmosphere and Luxury treatment at an affordable price at Finca Sonrisa. We had never been to the South of Spain but t.his was the best place for a first encounter. Everything is within reasonable distance and the home base of the Finca is unique. Especially the garden and the nature that is surrounding the Finca is
Unsurpassed, please go and meet the charming host of this Finca, Joan, you won't be dissapointed

Beautiful view, great apartments: you really feel at home immediately. Every day Joan brings you an excellent breakfast. Service is great. The apartments are provided with olive oil from the garden and sometimes you can even use vegetables from the garden to prepare your own meals. Definitely a place to come back to!!!
