Key Info
  • Nearest beach 40 km
  • Swimming pool
  • Suitable for children over 5
  • Car advised
  • Air conditioning
  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden

It is an ideal base to explore Andalusia as the Alhambra in Granada, Ronda and Malaga are all in easy reach. That said many people arrive with packed agendas planned only to shut the gates and lose themselves in their own tranquil oasis with pool, fountain and lush sub-tropical garden, picking oranges and figs from the trees with the heady scent of dame de la noche wafting in on the night breeze.

There are also the advantages of having owner on site as far as any problems, maintenance etc are concerned and also of having privacy and pretty much exclusive use of pool, hot tub and garden. We take the opportunity of having guests to get some time off so we are more noticeable by our absence as we value our private times more than dangling out of windows in the role of nosy neighbour :)

Further details indoors

The main part of the finca itself is over 150 years old although you will enjoy all the comforts of modern living, including satellite tv, wifi and aircon without any compromise to the romantic rural ambience.

The self contained apartment comprises 1 double bedroom with French doors opening on to the pool terrace and en-suite shower room, a twin room with en-suite, fully fitted modern kitchen and spacious living/dining room.

The Andalucia region

Malaga is a stunning city steeped in history and culture with the added advantage of sub-tropical climate allowing its pleasures to be enjoyed even in winter months. Whether sampling local tapas, chilling on a beach, exploring the historic centre or embracing the spirit of fiesta at one of the frequent ferias there is truly something for everyone all year round.

Ardales & the impressive gorge at El Chorro are 15 mins drive so the stunning scenery of the national park and freshwater lakes, along with some of the best walking, climbing and outdoor activities Andalusia has to offer are within easy reach.

Ronda is a beautiful town with a huge gorge dividing the 18th century and mediaeval parts. The views are simply amazing. The caves at Nerja are some of the most impressive to be found anywhere with regular concerts held in the subterranean cathedral like space.

Frankly the list is endless and there is a wealth of information at the house or I am happy to offer suggestions based upon your particular interests.


The historic village of Álora is an charming example of a working white village, set in a beautiful valley with a Moorish castle perched upon one of the peaks, surrounded by mountains, citrus orchards, olive and almond groves.

Álora is situated 40km (30 mins drive or train) from Malaga centre or its sparkly new airport on the Costa del Sol.

The village is a quaint mix of ancient and modern steeped in history and culture but with a vibrant buzz.

You will soon learn that the lunchtime siesta is sacred - the village (including busting Monday market) goes from thronged to deserted as the locals take the opportunity to get out of the sun and share food and time with family and friends but in the evening the village comes back to life. A local speciality is a granizada (slush) made from hazelnuts and served at the little ice cream shop in the village. It is not uncommon to see a cluster of people sat around the steps enjoying ice cream in the balmy temperatures at 2.00am

Hi guys and thanks for your smashing review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. We are expecting a cash injection in the coming months that should enable us to complete most if not all of the projects on the top terraces and new apartment. That should keep us out of trouble and busy over the winter months :) Take care Mark & Kim

We are smiling from ear to ear as we are going through looking at reviews. We are tired after putting up the first photo voltaic panels and will see tomorrow if they can run a cement mixer. If so we start on the new pond up on the top terrace and now have a acquired a red marble fountain to go at the end. Hope the day dream house will be up in time for your return visit. Great weekend and hugs to all.

"An undiscovered gem...."

45 mins from Malaga airport and you'd think you'd landed on planet fabulous.

To say that Finca Fenix is a beautiful, boutique hideaway is an understatement. If there is such a thing as a perfect holiday then we had it. From the moment we set foot through the gates of this property (the cold beer was a great move Mark) we felt relaxed and at home. To be welcomed into a property that has been lovingly restored by the owners fair hands and given free rein to treat as our own, was a pleasure.

Mark and Kim have put a massive effort in to ensuring that their guests have the holiday they want. They have a plethora of local knowledge to tempt and give you just enough information to make you want to explore yourselves.

If lounging around the pool is what you fancy, you could always order the home made tortilla and the most amazing fresh Gazpacho (yes, this is possible. You don't even have to move...) crack open a bottle of Torres Esmeralda, lay back and absorb the Spanish sunshine.

Finca Fenix offers extreme tranquillity and delightful seclusion as well as proximity to the beautiful city of Malaga.

If you want to wallow in self indulgence, giggle ridiculously with your hosts and sample the delights of what the Spanish countryside can offer then this is the place to seriously consider.
