Luxurious large group holidays beckon whether multi-generation families looking to entertain the kids or large groups of adults simply looking to mix poolside relaxation with the best sights of classical Spain (Granada, Sevilla, Cordoba - 1 - 2 hrs drive).

Still some weeks available July 2015, excellent value for large family groups at a fantastic time of year to visit Andalucia.

Take advantage of low flight costs in early summer and book excellent value first week in June 2015 - reasonable costs mean smaller groups are economic too ! See details below price table ...

The Finca sits in tranquil seclusion surrounded by picturesque olive groves. Indoor and outdoor kitchens and a traditional cobbled courtyard ensure mealtimes to remember. Days are spent lounging by the beautiful private pool or on the many patios, balconies and terraces or enjoying the pool table, table tennis, table football and internet access. The more active in the group may want to explore Andalucia's captivating cities in an easy one hour drive to Malaga on the coast or Granada inland. Closer to home there is walking, mountain-biking, horse-riding and bird-spotting where you will not see another soul all day.

Designed for children and adults alike there is room for everyone in the huge pool.

Further details indoors

Mike & Emma bought this huge cortijo Farmhouse in 2002 and spent the next two years lovingly restoring it to its full grandeur and adding the modern airy barn conversion - The Casita. In 2004 we welcomed our first summer guests and were bowled over by the response. Ten years on we have made many improvements to the luxury of Finca El Almendrillo.

. The 150 year old Farmhouse consists of:

- seven picturesque pine-beamed bedrooms.

- most can be adapted to twin or double use.

- sofa-beds in two living and walk-through rooms provide extra sleeping space.

- Gran Sala (11 by 7.5 metres) is a cool and ambient woodlined refuge to meet and chat/watch a DVD/use WiFi during the mid-day heat.

The Casita is a sensitive architect-designed barn conversion offering some independence from the rest of the group with

• -three more bedrooms

• -second indoor kitchen

• Altogether the Finca boasts ample space for 20 or even more (contact owner).

Further details outdoors

Finca el Almendrillo is an acre and a half (6000 square metres) of rural haven in total privacy surrounded by the whirr of crickets in the picturesque olive groves.

-To the south the famous view of goat pasture and oak forest stretching to the hills of the Sierra de Loja and to the east the majestic Sierra Nevada.

-Traditional central courtyard provides a focus for daily life with its own outdoor kitchen featuring huge barbecue and catering grade cooker (catering arranged on request).

-Two enclosed private gardens.

-Numerous balconies, terraces and shaded spots.

-Massive 17 metre / 55 foot pool (deep and shallow end, roman steps for toddler paddling) adjacent to generous terrace and pergola.

-Pool is gated,fenced and a distance from house to ensure child safety.

Further details

-All guests receive detailed information on the area and the Finca to ensure an excellent holiday.

- Welcome food and drink provided.

-Owners contactable by phone in case of difficulty or just a question.

-Network of tradesmen available.

-Finca El Almendrillo is totally solar-powered offering carbon-neutral holiday relaxation.

The Andalucia region

Finca El Almendrillo occupies an almost unique position happily placed equally distant from the Andalucian big three ancient sities (Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla) and the Coast at Malaga (Costa del Sol) and Motril and La Herradura (Costa Tropical). All of these are easily within 90 minutes drive from El Almendrillo, save for Sevilla which will take a little more than 2 hours on the direct A92 motorway.

Within this area Granada Province and it’s neighbours offer an untold wealth of popular destinations (including the magnificent Ronda) and unknown corners of the real Spain, quiet and virtually unseen by tourists in decades – for example upland parts of the romantic Alpujarras.

Throughout the region weather is guaranteed sunny and hot during the summer months.

Granada

Many holiday-makers at El Almendrillo never leave the Finca ! But if after a few days’ poolside relaxation (and an idyllic, safe environment for young and old) you feel the need to get out and about , 10 minutes drive from El Almendrillo there is the village of Fuente del Conde with supermarket and Los Pajaritos bar and restaurant. En route you will pass through beautiful countryside seeing (with luck) baby goats, sheep, hoopoes and peacocks.

Further afield we can help you organise horse-riding for novices or fully-experienced (or both together), tennis or point you in the right direction for unforgettable views on a day’s walk or mountain-bike trip to the spectacular limestone crags of Torcal and the amazing Wolf Park.

Within 15 minutes drive there are four restaurants which we are happy to recommend giving a variety of local cuisine – traditional and modern. In the nearby white town of Iznajar there are bars, restaurants and a 9th century Moorish citadel to explore. Further afield (30 mins drive) the towns of Loja and Archidona offer real Spain, shopping and a pleasant, relaxed café society.

All guests receive an email giving useful information about their future holiday and on arrival at Finca El Almendrillo you will find an up-to-date file giving suggestions of outings (water-parks, zoo) near and far. We are happy to respond to queries and questions from the moment you click on us to the last day of your holiday !
