About the property

Rest & Recreation, comfortable equipment, air conditioning, heating, internet, pool

Fuente de Hierro, the "iron spring", has been the name of the country for many centuries, on which your finca stands with old trees. Already the Moors made rest here on their way from the coast across the Sierra to Granada and brought their water here. During your stay on your finca you can have about (2x) 150 m² of living space, with weather-controlled underfloor heating.

Depending on the sun you choose between an east, south or west roof, pool or grill terrace.

You can enter the ground either directly from the large parking lot via the dining room or via the living room / south terrace. The kitchen, all doors and cabinets were made by a carpenter from Vélez-Málaga for Fuente de Hierro. Natural and earth colors characterize the interior of the finca. The walls are extra rustico-style, as the fincas very much earlier from the inside looked.

They are the sole guests. :-)

Finca Marico and Finca Fuente de Hierro are two independent fincas each with their own private pool (200m from each other). They are always the sole guests.

Finca Fuente de Hierro (about 2000sqm) is situated on 790 m altitude, is built on two floors and has 150 m² on the ground floor and 140 sqm on the first floor.

They are always the sole guests and can gladly enjoy your holiday with up to 10 (maximum 15) persons. On the various spacious terraces you can relax according to your taste and enjoy the tranquility or meet with the others of your group or with your family members for social gathering together.

The pool of Finca Fuente de Hierro is about 9m x 4m, with pool interior lighting and heatable. The countercurrent system is also available.

Finca Fuente de Hierro (as also Finca Marico) has air conditioning. Especially for the transition time or for the winter months the weather-controlled floor heating is simply very pleasant. The system is mainly powered by the sun through solar thermal panels.

Of course, bed linen and towels are provided, the two kitchens are fully equipped.

Especially the washing machines (incl. Washing powder) are welcome for our guests with children: simply wash the clothes, so they are fresh the next day, make your luggage easier.

Hiking (maps in the living room) in the Sierra de Almijarra / de Tejeda Nature Park and golfing on the coast (Baviera Golf) are possible. This is the ideal place for individual holidays for lovers and demanding. You will find peace and relaxation here and are the sole guests.

Your support is provided by our amiable manager Alejo.

On all sinks, there is soap dispenser with pH-neutral soap. In the showers there are also soap dispensers, filled with pH-neutral aloe vera shower gel.

Additional information: We would be glad to send you our brochure or the very detailed information folder. Or have a look at many more pictures on our homepage: www. finca-Andalusia. de

Marico and Fuente de Hierro each have a free high-speed Internet connection and W-Lan. The respective phone is a VoIP phone and works quite simply. They can be called favorably from Germany (normal landline charge for the call). You can make cheap calls to 2 cents per minute to the German landline, cheap calls to the German mobile network at 17 cents per minute.

The administrator then comes the next morning.

Fantastyczne miejsce na cudowny odpoczynek

  • 5 of 5

Szczerze polecamy Finca Fuente de Hierro na wakacyjny odpoczynek. Dom jest bardzo wygodny dla dwóch rodzin lub większej grupy znajomych, wyposażenie jest idealne, wiele drobiazgów kuchennych, wszystko co jest potrzebne do codziennego życia. Każda sypialnia ma klimatyzacje, bezwględnie konieczna w tym klimacie zwłaszcza latem. Dom jest położony okolo 800 n.p.m i dzięki temu nawet w gorące dni upał nie jest odczuwalny. Dodatkowo jego położenie jest idealne dla osób ceniących ciszę i spokój ( około 50 m powyżej jest granica Parku Narodowego) a także dla tych, którzy lubią klimaty prawdziwego życia, co mozna doświadczyć w licznych otaczających "Pueblas blancas" Canillas de Abaida, Competa, Archez, Salares z uroczymi knajpkami, serdecznymi mieszkańcami i fiestami. Dla tych co szukają ochłody w morzu blisko jest do jednej z najładniejszych płaz w okolicach Nerji czy do tez potoku Rio Chillar. Około 1,5 -2 godzin do Granady, 2-3 do Sevilli, Cordoby czy Giblartaru. Ralf jest bardzo sympatycznym właścicielem, otwartym i serdecznym. Rozmowa z nim była przyjemnością, gdyz zawsze chciał "przychylić nieba". Chcielibyśmy jeszcze kiedyś spędzić wakacje w tym niesamowitym miejscu.

Fantastic Location - superb villa - helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic villa - actually 2 villas one above the other - in a beautiful location. We stayed as a family of 12 (2 grandparents, 2 children and spouses and 6 grandchildren) and had a fantastic time. Both villas had excellent facilities with top range equipment. The upstairs villa is on the same level as the lovely pool, which was where we based ourselves most of the time. The downstairs accommodation is entirely separate with its own entrance, veranda, large kitchen etc - in fact it is probably larger than upstairs but we used it just for bedrooms mainly and focused family activities around the pool, kitchen veranda and barbecue terrace.

The location is beautiful but is also fairly remote. This has its bonuses and downsides. The journey is on very winding roads climbing the mountainside and is not for the faint hearted! It took about 40 minutes from the beach at Torre del Mar. But except the last 500m it is tarmac all the way, with wonderful scenery to enjoy with steep valleys and incredible mountains. So don't anticipate a quick walk down to the local bar!

However nearby Competa (10 minutes by car) is a lovely mountain village with various plazas, great restaurants (try La Taberna) and several shops and supermarkets that will keep you going. We enjoyed visiting for the Grape Treading Festival which attracted thousands of visitors from the area and was a great day with local people. The nearest large shopping is at El Ingenio just off the E15 1km north of Torre Del Mar, with an Eroski hypermarket, many shops including C&A (remember them!) and several family restaurants.

The owner, Ralf, is the most helpful owner I have come across! From the beginning of booking to the day of departure he was nothing but obliging. He even purchased an additional outside table during our stay so that we could all sit as 12 people together for meals. With frequent emails and a call from Germany when we arrived to make sure all was well, he was never intrusive and always helpful and courteous. He simply wanted us to enjoy our time there and nothing was too much trouble.

Any downside? The villa says it is 5 bedrooms but the 5th is just a single and had no air-con. But I think Ralf is considering air-con for it as well.

All in all a wonderful villa. Highly recommended!

Beautiful, peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

An excellent Finca set in a beautiful location. The house comes very well equipped, with pretty much everything you could think you would need. We were very well welcome and looked after by Ralf, who even arranged a new table to be bought for the terrace so we could fit our entire family at meal times.

The surrounding area is beautiful and there are amazing views from the Finca, even being able to see the mountains of Morocco. We visited the local town Competa a few times and would highly recommend La Taberna restaurant in Competa.

I would highly recommend staying here.

Superb Finca, wonderful holidays

  • 5 of 5

Magnificent Finca, perfectly equipped for wonderful holidays, everything you may need is there, readily available.

The house is located in a calm spot in the mountains, with nice "white villages" nearby.

Perfect for families with children ( 5 in our case) that will spend most of their time in the swimming pool.

We appreciated the two houses which allowed each to have a certain independence.

The owner's main concern is his guests well being and he ensures everything is just perfect.

We shall return...

Maison magnifique, parfaitement equipée pour passer de merveilleuses vacances.

Au calme, dans la montagne, entourée de villages blancs. séjour parfait avec 5 enfants qui ont bien profité de la piscine.

Nous avons apprécié la disposition des deux maisons qui permet à chacun d'avoir son intimité et son indépendance.

Proprietaire tres attentionné. Nous reviendrons

Fantastisk sted

  • 5 of 5

Vi var 2 familier med i alt 4 voksne og 5 børn, der havde booket 1 uge i sommerferien. Vi havde en fantastisk uge og alt ved huset var godt. Flot udsigt over bjergene, hyggelig pool område, gode værelser og flere gode terrasser.

Eneste minus var at det lå lidt langt væk fra kysten. Ca 1/2 times kørsel. Hvis man søger et hyggeligt sted med fred, ro og idyl er dette sted helt perfekt.
