Een week lang hebben wij enorm genoten van Finca Almendra: Rudie, Ria en Ivo (11) en Camille (9). Wij vonden de vallei, uitzicht op de vallei geweldig. Het was oogsttijd van de nispero.  Overal bloeiden bloemen, groeiden citroenen, nisperos, sinassappels, advocados. We hebben elke dag gewandeld, (wandelroute getipt door Bob & Chris,) met picknick, avontuurlijke paden (+/- 3 uur lopen) ook fantastisch voor de kinderen. 2 x ging wij naar de zee, nog lekker rustig op dit moment. Het zwembad was natuurlijk ook een feest. Kortom een fantastisch weekje waar wij allen enorm van hebben genoten.

Chris en Bob hartelijk dank voor de gastvrijheid en bijzondere sfeer door jullie hier opgebouwd!

Tot ziens van Rudie, Ria en Ivo en Camille - Holland

We’ve had a wonderful relaxing time at Finca Almendra.  Bob & Chris are warm hosts and we have fallen in love with Andalucia - the rugged beauty of the mountains, great beaches and wonderful food.  

We shall definitely be back.

We had a really great time here at Finca Almendra.  A wonderful place to escape the from busy daily life, but on the other side well located for all visits to the main sights such  as the “Alhambra” in Granada or Seville.

We wished we could have stayed longer with you!

Hope to come back for another lovely holiday with you

Thank you

Louis, Denise and Micheline - Montreal, Canada

We have spent yet another wonderful holiday at Finca Almendra. We cannot praise it enough, the villa is spacious, well equipped and spotless.

The owners, Chris and Bob, are very helpful and informative, nothing is too much trouble for them.

The villa has fantastic views down to the sea and to the white villages. If you like to walk there are walks from your doorstep or you can visit the villages and wander or you can just chill out.

We would recommend Finca Almendra to everyone and are returning ourselves very soon.

Chris  and Linda - Derbyshire

Finca Almendra with its relaxing decor and meticulously tidy villa is the perfect retreat from the high occupancy seaside hotels of Malaga and Torre del Mar.

Chris and Bob's knowledge of the local cuisine, hiking and culture give you a unique insight into the area

“A really lovely villa with fabulous views!”

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.

“Vacances magnifique”

Nous avons passé un séjour merveilleux à la "Finca almendra". Point de départ idéal pour visiter le sud de l'Espagne, resto à proximité délicieux (casa mari à Sayalonga) . La description de la villa et des paysages sont authentiques, la gentillesse et la discrétion de Kris et Bob nous ont vraiment charmé. Thanks for the marvelous holiday . We loved it. We will come back

“An excellent and comfortable stay, with lovely views”

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.

“A great place to stay”

We spent two very relaxing and lazy weeks at Finca Almendra.The Finca was lovely, spotlessly clean and very well equipped with all utensils and cutlery. The views over the mountains and down the valley are wonderful. The owners Bob and Chris are very welcoming and have a great knowledge of the area and restaurants. This is a great place to stay if you want to get away/ from the stress of every day life. A wonderful place to stay.

“Great memories”

We stayed for 10 days in June 2016. The accommodation is located approx 3km along a track from the village of Sayalonga. The villa was very clean on arrival and we were met with a warm welcome from the owners Bob and Chris. The fully equipped villa is located at the rear of Bob and Chris' home so if you needed any advice on places to go or eat they were always on hand to provide information.The garden is beautifully maintained with views you will never tire of and if you feel energetic there are some stunning walks you can take from the villa,the peace and quiet truly is a bonus.The local villages all have great restaurants and at no point did we have a bad meal.We would recommend this property to anyone who wants a peaceful,relaxing holiday with great value for money and we would return for a second holiday without any doubt.

“Cozy "villa" as part of a fantastic finca, beautiful surroundings, very friendly owners”

This was a really wonderful place to relax and enjoy the Andalusian landscape apart from and yet close enough to all the touristy spots of Costa del Sol.

We enjoyed our stay at the cozy "villa" of beautiful Finca Almendra surrounded by a lovely mediterranean garden in full spring blossom - due to perfect weather we also took advantage of the nice pool area with a stunning view to the coast. The owners were very friendly and helpful - they made us feel welcome and at home right away. Staying at the villa we were able to cook our own meals and have barbecue but there are also nice restaurants in 15 minutes reach by car. The region holds a lot of opportunities to go hiking right from the finca, to visit nice places like typical "white villages", well known coast towns at the Costa del Sol or great cities with magnificent historical sites like Granada. We can really recommend the place!

Paradis Perdu

Chris et Bob sont des gens adorables, serviables et discrets.

Nous avons passé des vacances dans un cadre idyllique au cœur de l' Andalousie, la maison offre tout le confort souhaité avec la piscine qui est un vrai plus lors des chaudes après midi.

La maison est un havre de paix pour les gens en quête de tranquillité et de retour à la nature.

La situation géographique de la finca permet de visiter les deux cotés de cette région car assez centrale.

Once again we had a most enjoyable time in Spain staying in the Finca Almendra villa being looked after and guided by Bob and Christine. With Chica the dog trying to get us fit by setting a fast walking pace whenever she took us walking in the hills. Bob and Chris have a vast knowledge and love of the area which they are always willing and keen to share. We dicovered some cracking walks and restaurants with their help. The well equipped and furnished rental villa attached to their house is set in the hills above Sayalonga with a wonderful view of the Mediterranean Sea. With temperatures of the pool hovering around 26 degrees in May a dip in the evening was just the thing after a mountain walk. There are some good restaurants in Sayalonga, the nearest village and plenty of choice of eating places in the local coastal towns.

Peaceful villa with a view!

The villa is a 10 minute drive from the village of Sayalonga - it's in a fab location, and fun to drive to on the track roads, but a car is essential for this accommodation. It has a beautiful situation, benefitting from spectacular views and constant sunshine throughout the day. The villa is very well equipped and clean, and was very comfortable to stay in. It was lovely to get to know Chris and Bob, and their fab dog Chica. Very approachable and friendly with a lot of knowledge of the surrounding areas. There were lots of places to visit from here and lots of fab restaurants. We would definitely recommend a stay at Finca Almendra and love to return ourselves.

Wonderful relaxing holiday

We have recently returned from this wonderful villa. Chris and Bob -you made us feel very welcome and your local knowledge helped us to make the most of our visit. We saw a lot of places we wouldn't have visited with out your recommendations -so thank you very much. Your villa is beautiful and clean and we enjoyed using the pool on the days we didn't venture out. The scenery from the villa is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our evenings sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine. We very much hope that we will see you again xx

Herrlich gelegen, toller Stützpunkt für Ausflüge

Eine Finca mit herrlichem Blick auf die umliegenden Hügel und hinüber nach Sayalonga. Üppig-grüne Bepflanzung rundherum in großer Vielfalt und Blütenpracht in jeder Ecke. Auf der Terrasse beim Frühstück schaut die aufgehende Sonne vom Hügel herüber. Ein stets sauberer Swimmingpool sorgt für Abkühlung und Liegestn der Wohnung lagen umfangreiche Informationsmappen bereit. Inühle stehen bereit zum Ruhen in absoluter Stille. In der Wohnung ist alles vorhandenen. Bob und Chris waren stets hilfsbereit und gaben wertvolle Ratschläge. Auch i den umliegenden Bergdörfchen konnte man prima Essen und den andalusischen Sommer auf den zentralen Plätzchen genießen. Wir unternahmen jeden zweiten Tag Tagesausflüge zu interessanten Zielen. Jeweils 2 Tage waren wir in Cordoba und Sevilla. Dank an Bob und Chris für die schönen Urlaubstage im Sommer 2018.

Wonderfully located, great base for excursions

A finca with stunning views of the surrounding hills and over to Sayalonga. Lush-green plants all around in great variety and flowers in every corner. On the terrace at breakfast, the rising sun looks over from the hill. An always clean swimming pool provides for cooling and Liegestn the apartment extensive information folders were ready. Inühle are ready to rest in absolute silence. In the apartment everything is available. Bob and Chris were always helpful and gave valuable advice. Also in the surrounding mountain villages you could enjoy great food and the Andalusian summer in the central places. We went on day trips to interesting destinations every other day. Two days we were in Cordoba and Sevilla. Thanks to Bob and Chris for the nice holidays in summer 2018.

Escapism in Sayalonga

The villages and towns surrounding the villa are whitewashed villages, serving a community but each are unique in their own way, this is an exceptionally well placed base for the exploration of the Costa Del Sol and regions beyond. The villa nestles into a hill side and is extremely private, as a guest you inhabit the rear of the property but have full access to the pool area as featured in the photograph, this is yours for private use throughout the stay, The owners whilst living on site are sensitive enough to respect your privacy & leave and arrive at the rear of the property leaving you as a guest to the privacy of your party at all times. However should you need guidance on the locality where to go, how to get there, they have firstly stocked the villa with maps, walks and lots of localised guide books, but secondly are a font of knowledge of local behaviour, where's best for this & where's best for that, provided of course that's what you want they are exceptionally accommodating, for me they were a pleasure to have around. The drive to main roads is straight forward and once you reach Algarrobo Costa you pick up the motorway, left for Granada ( A must see) right for Malaga, you also have the secondary option of the coast road that runs parallel in either direction, this I recommend you do at some point, you get a real flavour of Spanish life. Frigiliana, Competa, Torrox ( My favourite pueblo square) Neja, Caletta, Venuela ( Lake) all worth a day out. The scenery is stunning in places, the mountainous region only adds to it's beauty, and it boasts the biggest sky in the evening, no light refraction has a real positive effect. Wildlife is in abundance. Would I stay again, yes, and it would serve as a good base for a young family.
