Additional amenities & feature info
Mike & Emma bought this huge cortijo Farmhouse in 2002 and spent the next two years lovingly restoring it to its full grandeur and adding the modern airy barn conversion - The Casita. In 2004 we welcomed our first summer guests and were bowled over by the response. Ten years on we have made many improvements to the luxury of Finca El Almendrillo. . The 150 year old Farmhouse consists of: - seven picturesque pine-beamed bedrooms. - most can be adapted to twin or double use. - sofa-beds in two living and walk-through rooms provide extra sleeping space. - Gran Sala (11 by 7.5 metres) is a cool and ambient woodlined refuge to meet and chat/watch a DVD/use WiFi during the mid-day heat. The Casita is a sensitive architect-designed barn conversion offering some independence from the rest of the group with • -three more bedrooms • -second indoor kitchen • Altogether the Finca boasts ample space for 20 or even more (contact owner).

About the neighborhood
Many holiday-makers at El Almendrillo never leave the Finca ! But if after a few days’ poolside relaxation (and an idyllic, safe environment for young and old) you feel the need to get out and about , 10 minutes drive from El Almendrillo there is the village of Fuente del Conde with supermarket and Los Pajaritos bar and restaurant. En route you will pass through beautiful countryside seeing (with luck) baby goats, sheep, hoopoes and peacocks. Further afield we can help you organise horse-riding for novices or fully-experienced (or both together), tennis or point you in the right direction for unforgettable views on a day’s walk or mountain-bike trip to the spectacular limestone crags of Torcal and the amazing Wolf Park. Within 15 minutes drive there are four restaurants which we are happ...
