The space

Finca Colina de los Almendros organic farm nestles in a typically Spanish hamlet on a hillside surrounded by almond and olive trees yet is only 40 minutes drive from Malaga airport. This peaceful, truly Spanish environment provides you with the perfect place to relax and retreat from the strains and stresses of everyday life. Take time out to soak up the peaceful atmosphere.Unwind, relax and recharge.
Finca Colina is a mountain retreat in Real Spain where you have time and space just "to be". We can arrange massage.
Leave your working world behind, hop on one of the many flights to Malaga or Granada and step into inland Andalucia, "Real Spain". Feel the sun on your face, breathe the fresh mountain air and Relax.You will need transport.

We don't have sport's bars, night clubs or "happy hours". Our music is the tune of goat bells and bird song.We have fresh mountain air, sensational views and tracks where you can walk all day.This is a paradise for bird watchers and naturalists.Enjoy watching the turtles as you stroll along the banks of the Casasola reservoir.
We have wifi, a DVD player and small library of DVDs and books which you may borrow.We also have a "bar" within 5 minutes walk of the Finca. This is a room which is part of a neighbour's house!Visit this for an experience you're unlikely to have anywhere else! In winter you can sit around a tin bath filled with blazing almond logs. In summer you can sit outside and enjoy the balmy air and song of cicadas. Don't expect the chairs to match but you can expect a friendly welcome from locals who speak no English.Beware of the local country wine!

During the heat of the day you can cool off in our pool with stunning mountain views. For a day at the seaside the Mediterranean is a 40 minute drive.

Location is breathtaking- views from the pool are captivating, and we miss the gentle tinkle of goat bells already. The cats are humanised, friendly, curious and great fun to be around. Christine is welcoming, kind and informative, but sensitive and unintrusive. To echo another: "if you love cats and nature, you will love it here"!

Nestled high in the Andalusia mountains and literally 'off the beaten track' Christine's place is an oasis of calm and tranquility. We were made to feel most welcome and the casita was like a home from home with everything you could need and want. We spent an idyllic week there and we can't wait to return. We had space, sunshine, privacy - everything we wanted for a relaxing week to recharge ourselves. Christine is the perfect host. She has a wealth of local knowledge and helped us out with places to see and visit and eat.

The finca is beautifully located and the pool area is very nice for relaxing. We were mostly alone there with cats as the only company, which was nice. Christine was very friendly and flexible with the checkin and checkout times (she let us stay until the afternoon), and the communication was very good. Things we did not like very much were two single beds instead of a double bed, the division of bedroom and living room/kitchen and dogs barking at night from neighbouring houses. Also the water pressure and temperature are not easily controllable, which makes showering and dishwashing somewhat unconvenient.

Response from Christine:
Thank you for your feedback. I can understand that the water temperature can vary and needs careful adjustment as this is an old campo house. However I was able to wash the dishes you left and clean the gas hob without any bother. Although I needed wire wool to clean the frying pan and the gas rings!Dogs barking at night is usual in the Spanish campo. I can understand your annoyance. It used to annoy me when I moved here from UK. Up until now both those issues have not been mentioned by guests. The information states and the photograph on the first page clearly shows two single beds. Despite these problems I'm glad you had a nice relaxing time by the pool.

In one word: PERFECT! My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 nights on Holy Week, we had plans to go to the beach but it was not necessary since the place was all we were looking for: awesome views from the hills, peaceful surroundings, birds singing, bright sunshine, stunning sunsets, having breakfast in the terrace, tanning and relaxing all day by the private pool, having bbq at nights... Christine is a wonderful host, from the beginning to the end, always careful for our needs and giving recommendations about places and directions nearby to get food (since the place is located in the hills, is better for you to take the most amount of food so you don't need to go out, anyway there are places not to far to buy things). The pictures are accurate, even better. The room, kitchen and bathroom are very clean and have everything you need, the outdoors are so lovely, all the spots are great to relax. There are 21 cats all around the finca, but they don't even mess with you, they are very polite and nice. We are very grateful with Christine for making our holidays so perfect and enjoyable, we hope to get back soon :) !

Endroit très tranquille en plein milieu des montagnes. La casita est comme sur les photos et la piscine et très bien. Christine est un très bon hôte, toujours disponible, chaleureuse et très aimable. Un endroit parfait pour se reposer à l'air frais. Je recommande !

Thank you. I'm sorry you had problems with bugs such as ants. The kitchen and bathroom were thoroughly cleaned before your arrival but at this time of year in Andalucia this is a problem we all have.

We are Christine and Terry. We moved to Spain with our two cats in September 2006. We now have lots more rescued cats and a dog. We grow almonds, olives and chillis organically. As hosts we aim to offer our guests the sort of holiday we'd like to have.
