A very clean and well equipped holiday villa, in a beautiful location. Bob and Chris were fantastic hosts, and greeted us with homemade bread, and delicious homegrown lemons. A lovely pool, which we swam in despite it only being 20 degrees thanks to the cloudy weather we had! We found the long access road dirt track adventurous, and our standard hire car dealt with it fine. Muchas gracias Bob & Chris.
This fully equipped villa was a perfect base for a quiet holiday with our baby at the Spanish campo. We loved the easy walks right from the house, the views, the hospitality of Chris and Bob, the little villages nearby and the near beaches.
We had a fabulous time! We are a family of four (kids 10 & 6) and it was just what we wanted. A lovely clean, spacious villa away from it all, with fabulous views of Andalusia. The pool is to the front of the owners side of the property and is clean, and has gorgeous views, and our kids loved it (as did we), there are plenty of umbrellas and tables so it's easy to sit in the sun or the shade. The beach is about 20-30 mins away where there are plenty of restaurants and amenities and the local villages are closer with small stores etc. The owners were great, accessible when needed but left us alone to get on with it too, completely understanding that you just want to relax and enjoy! Would definitely recommend it.
Notre premier voyage en Andalousie restera un souvenir magnifique. Nous avons passé 3 semaines idylliques dans cet endroit de rêve.
L'accueil, la gentillesse, l'amabilité, les conseils de Chris et Bob ne font qu'améliorer la bonheur de vos vacances.
Il n'y a que du positif a dire sur cet endroit.
Chris, Bob nous espérons vous revoir bientôt
Our first trip to Andalusia will remain for a long time in our memory. We spent 3weeks in this idyllic.
The hospitality, kindness, friendliness, advices from Chris and Bob make your stay a dream.
Hope to see you soon.
Quiet sunsets dip into the Mediterranean as calm breezes bring the smell of blooming spring flowers that line the winding hiking trails that seamlessly canvas the rolling hillsides emanating from the doorstep of this wonderful cottage.
Rustic, terraced avocado, lemon, mango and nîspero groves provide the savvy hiker with many bountiful fruits of this fertile and historic agricultural region.
Just a 45 minute hike into the quiet town of Sayalonga brings you fine restaurants, friendly locals and a glimpse of daily life and the Spanish traditions that have been passed on here for centuries.
But the best part of the day is returning home to the familial atmosphere and calming surroundings of the Finca Almendra. The open kitchen, relaxing decor and meticulously tidy cottage is the perfect retreat from the high occupancy seaside hotels of Malaga and Torre del Mar.
The generous and accommodating owners go out of there way to make your stay both private and relaxing but willingly make the extra effort to make your stay more enjoyable. Chris and Bob's home made bread and knowledge of the local cuisine, hiking and culture give you a unique insight into the area and if you're lucky a tour of their wonderful home.
In just hours after your arrival you will feel yourself in harmony with the land, art and beauty Chris and Bob have stitched into the rocky hillsides and counting the months until you can come back to this rejuvenating, peaceful Spanish villa.
We had a wonderful holiday at Finca Almendra. Nice and clean villa, tranquility of the garden and surrounding mountains dotted with small white villages gave fantastic relax for all our family. A seating place on the slope with 2 chairs and small table under the olive tree was something unreal - giving shadow, cooling breeze and views of the valley and the Mediteranean in a distance. Driving to the villa can be a bit of challenge - but it added the experience of glorious views and beautiful photos. Bob and Chris were very kind hosts - very helpful and extremely nice people. A welcome pack included delicious local typical products like nisperos jam, cheese and Bob's delicious bread! Bob and Chris have also recommended a very good local restaurant we had an excellent gastronomic experience there, including gazpacho, baby goat, aubergine and day's special grilled fish dishes.

Inland is the true rural Spain of the Axarquia with its charming Moorish white villages, spectacular National Parks of the Sierras - a perfect location for going to the beach, walking, bird watching, mountain biking, horse riding or just lazing by the pool.
