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).

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.

We are proud of our 100% response rate and guarantee to answer all enquiries within two hours unless late at night.

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.


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 !
