You are unlikely not to see the eagles and many different birds that frequent the Natural Park as well as the many different animals that live along side us in this protected habitat.
The finca is very private but only a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to Jimena that has many restaurants and bars where you can sample the local cuisine of Iberico ham to the fruits of seafood from the Med. There are supermarkets and Banks as well as a medical centre just in case but many of the little shops sell the fruit and vegetables cultivated by the locals in their vegetable gardens.The Andalucian people are incredibly helpful and friendly. There is a festival in May marking the Andalucian history with horses. In July their is a music festival with Flamenco and world music and In Mid August is the main Summer Feria that goes on for 3 days
During your stay there is a member of staff, Jose Luis, that will ensure that the pool and gardens are maintained as well as cleaning the terraces.
