The Almond House
About the home
The Almond House is an original farm cottage set amongst acres of almond and olive groves that has been beautifully restored to a very high standard throughout. The spacious en-suite bedrooms are furnished with traditional, stylish pieces and retain many original features. The comfortable living room with dvd and ipod facilities leads through to a fully equipped open plan kitchen and dining area with a wood burning stove for those chillier evenings. The outside dining room room and private courtyard leading up to the pool and terraces are ideal for al fresco eating.
Perfect for those looking to escape you need do nothing more than lie by the pool during the day and star gaze at night. - Our magnificent night skies, amongst the clearest in Spain, are the perfect back drop for a romantic evening. For the more active guests the countryside around The Almond House offers the opportunty to walk amongst wild rosemary and thyme, through valleys and along goat trails, observing the natural wildlife of the area.
We also now have our bespoke air conditioned gym available for our guests private use. Book personal training sessions with our professionally qualified PT in advance and reduce great discounts and after your workout indulge in a therapeutic massage - all available at the Almond House.

The Andalucia / Almeria Province region
In this forgotten corner of Andalucia there is the opportunity to explore mountains, lakes, beaches, historic towns and spectacular countryside.
The sparkling beaches, quiet coves and traditional beach bars of the beautiful, unspoilt resort of San Juan de Los Terreros are perfect to spend a lazy day enjoying the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. Further down the coast are the lively resorts of Mojacar and Garrucha with almost 30kms of sandy beaches, typical beach bars and stylish, cosmopolitan restaurants. All of these beaches are within a 40 minute drive of The Almond House. Head further inland, through beautiful rural landscapes, to the historic towns of Velez Rubio and Velez Blanco, the gateway to the Sierra Maria - Los Velez national Park.
Within a 90 minute drive you can enjoy the delights of the lakes at Baza and half an hour more will take you to the beautiful, historic city of Granada with its stunning Alhambra.
Our enviable climate really does make this an all year destination
