This unique holiday is based out of a 2 acre finca on the edge of the authentic Spanish village of Lubrin, Almeria in Andalucia.

The self catering accommodation is full of character, spacious and with modern amenities. There is a fully equipped kitchen and outside has the benefit of two very private terraces to greet the morning sun with a cup of tea or coffee and toast the last rays with a glass of wine. There is Free to Air Satellite TV and Wireless Broadband.The mountain views are truly panoramic and on a clear day include the Mediterranean sea. There is a swimming pool to cool off on those very hot days or just pick a shady spot to read a book, sip a glass of wine or take in the views. For the more active there are moderate self guided mountain walks right outside the entrance to the finca.

Where to go and what to do? Lubrin is located about 1 hour cross country from Almeria Airport or 2 hours motorway/cross country from Alicante or Murcia Airports. The village is very Spanish and nestles high in the Sierra Los Filabres some 2000feet above the well known beach resorts of Mojacar and Garrucha which are just 45 minutes away.

The more Spanish resorts of San Juan Torres and Aquilas (to the North) and Carboneras, Agua Marga and San Jose ( to the South) are about an hour away. These Spanish resorts, in Summer, are very much less crowded, especially mid-week, than Mojacar and Garrucha. Places of Interest include Cuevas de Almanzora for its cave houses and Tabernas for its magnificent Desert National Park. At Tabernas is a Westen Theme park on the site of the Clint Eastwood Movies! The Cabo de Gata National Park is one of the most beautiful and ecologically rich coastal strips in the western Mediterranean and is the first Natural land and sea park in Andalucia. The drive takes just over an hour and the route down the mountain, via Nijar, is very dramatic. The park offers walks on marked trails and tracks amongst native scrub and grasses, amidst the scent of wild lemon balm and the distinctive aromas of curry plant and herbs. You are able to follow inland trails and coastline.

The ancient Andalusian city of Almeria(1 hour away)lies sheltered at the base of a bay, proudly dominated by the amazing Alcazaba, a huge Moorish citadel with three walled enclosures dating from 995. From the citadel visitors have a good view of the city's most impressive and important Christian monument, the Cathedral, dating from 1524, designed more like a fortress than a church because of the need to defend it from pirate attacks. The Cathedral contains numerous art treasures, including a tabernacle dating from the 18th century, designed by Ventura Rodriguez. With its interesting medieval architecture, Almeria's old town is a delight to stroll through with its tranquil squares, archways and colonnades. The city also has a fascinating archaeological museum and unique cave dwellings in the hillside above the old gypsy quarter. The Alhambra in Granada is a very popular place to visit by our guests. It takes just 2 hours to drive to Granada along the Almeria to Sevilla motorway with stunning views. The motorway skirts around Granada and the Alhambra car park is easily accessed. There is a shuttle bus that takes you from the Alhambra direct to the Plaza de Nueva where it's a short walk to the Cathedral and Royal Chapel.

Best time to go

June to September for "chill" by way of R&R and the swimming pool.

October and November for an Indian Summer

.November through April for self guided walking or mountain biking

February for the start of Spring and the almond blossom.

March to May for bird watching and wildflowers.

above the well known beach resorts of Mojacar and Garrucha which are just 45 minutes away.Lubrin is a small village of about 500 of the nicest people you are ever likely to meet. There are a number of Cafe/Bars that offer Tapas. Meson Molinos is a restaurant offering fine wines and a mouthwatering menu. Bar Lopez is located in Rambla Aljibe,

which is one of the dozen or so hamlets in the Parish of Lubrin, where you can get a good wholesome 3 course Menu del Dias including wine for 10 Euros.

Interaction with guest

Let our guest describe our interaction philosophy: "We were worried, being of a somewhat antisocial disposition that John and Maya (accurately described in other reviews as the perfect owners for whom nothing was too much trouble) would be too much present but they got it exactly right and had the knack of being there when needed and not otherwise"

“Tranquility”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2016

The accomodation has been well thought out and the hosts have been particularly considerate in their provision of equipment from maps and walking guides to books and dvds for quiet evenings. Lubrin is an ideal location for anyone seeking a quiet, relaxing break. It is ideal for walkiing, running or cycling activities or as a base for visiting historic sites and places of interest. The village is within easy walking distance and caters for the purchase of basic commodities. It also offers a choice of bars and restaurants where you will be greeted with a friendly reception and find reasonably priced food and drink.

“Brilliant hosts - unspoilt town”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2016

Our hosts were fanatastic - nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was very comfortable and secluded. Lubrin is charming and unspoilt with lots of excellent places to eat at amazing prices - no real need to cook. It is very hilly so the walking is quite hard work. Some may find the countryside a bit bleak - especially in February when we went - although you grow to like it.

“Great hosts, rustic accommodation and great walking”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2013

We had a fabulous holiday at Cortijo Fuente Arriba. John and Mair could not have been more helpful. The accommodation was rustic and charming. Being in the hills we were surrounded by great walking country and specific walks were already mapped out for us, with helpful pocket sized guides. Lubrin is a lovely authentic Spanish village with virtually no English spoken but very friendly natives. Good bars and restaurants with excellent tapas. For our big day trip to Granada John helped us to book our tickets (essential!) and prepared maps for every inch of the way. The nearest coast is 30 minutes drive and many beaches are unspoilt, especially the one near Vera. The pool is great for cooling down and our patios and sunbeds allowed for endless relaxing when we wanted it. If you want a holiday in real Spain, away from the Costas, and you enjoy walking this could be the place for you. Two points - nothing much for children unless they like long walks in the countryside and we'd recommend flying to Almeria or Murcia if possible. Our journey to and from Alicante took 2.5 hours, but it was still well worth the effort. Gerry and Pam
