Description

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 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 :)

Location description from owner

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.

Alora

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

“Simply Perfect”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2016

I have found it really hard to write this review because i simply could not think of the words that would do Finca Fenix justice. It was , quite simply, perfect. We travelled as a family for our first long european holiday. The main thing we all wanted to do was relax. We wanted 2 weeks of lazing around doing very little and not feeling like we had to. Before we even arrived Mark made sure everything was ready for us and as soon as we arrived we were made very welcome by Kim. Nothing was too much hassle for them. The accommodation was both rustic (wife adored all the trinkets and ornaments) but still had all the mod cons (wifi adored by the kids and me). The town was a small walk up the track, or if you needed more, the supermarket is a mere 2 mins drive. Mark kindly arranged a restaurant booking and taxi for us whilst Kim showed us some lovely places to visit. I would strongly recommend Ronda and El Chorro. One thing that really struck me was how quiet things were. We were near a town but at the same time felt miles away from anywhere which made it perfect to relax. The kids could splash around in the pool or float on the many inflatables whilst we could either relax or jump in. We got exactly what we wanted. To see what Mark and Kim have done to the place and are looking to do made it all the more a special visit. We can't thank them (and the cats) enough for making it the perfect family holiday set in stunning surroundings. It really is one of the most peaceful places i have ever been to. Mark and Kim, thank you so much and can't wait to see you both again. Mark, Silvia, Hannah & Zachary

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to leave that review. We are delighted that you had such a great time staying at Finca Fenix. We look forward to welcoming you back soon! All the best Mark & Kim

Reviewed 11 Jun 2015

Great place to chill fantastic hosts who will cater for all tastes accordingly. Close to amenities but far enough to escape an enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind comments and hope to see you again soon. All the best Mark & Kim

“An undiscovered gem....”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2012

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.

“Finca Fenix Fantasia”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2012

Stayed from 17th to 26th July with my husband, mother (age 60ish, sorry mum) & niece (aged 11). From the moment we arrived we were made to feel incredibly welcome with big hugs & kisses from Mark the fridge of goodies for supper & the PG tips for mum. We felt even moreso when we saw the gardens looking so inviting in the candle light & the firepit glowing ready for us to sit & recover from travelling. The house itself is immaculately kept, well equipped & beautifully decorated. Mark & Kim have thought of every eventuality & are a hive of information on all the local foods, drinks activites & sights. Thanks to their network of friends & local kowledge my niece was able to go horseriding in the mountains of Andalucia & eat plums that she picked from the trees as she rode.....how many 11 year olds can say that? The town & surrounding area have lots to offer but Mark & Kim have created such an oasis of tranquility that we didnt want to go anywhere else. We ventured into town for shopping, had one meal out & visited the icecream parlour which we highly recommend! We already knew the area & it's ideally situated if you want to travel around & see more of Andalucia, we'd a suggest a visit to the lakes, El chorro, Rhonda & Granada.The location & accommodation are so perfect that, if you're like us, you'll find there's far too much to experience in one holiday. We will definately be visiting again, we have to as Marks list of things to see, do & taste has to be tackled........if we can just make it out of the finca!! Thx for a wonderful holiday x
