“Amazing and special week at Finca el Almendrillo”

We had the most amazing time at Finca el Almendrillo. We stayed there for the last week of October, using it for a family get together as well as our wedding. The farmhouse was ideal for both. We had 14 adults, 8 children and a baby staying there and there was plenty of space for all to be very comfortable. The building is well designed so that you can have your own space or come together as one group. We did a lot more together than expected and the house easily accommodated communal eating for that many people in the kitchens and living rooms. It has all the cooking facilities you need and absolutely mountains of things for the kids to do. The kids had the most wonderful holiday – as they could entertain themselves easily, it also gave the parents some free time to relax as well.

As far as a wedding venue, our guests could not stop raving about it. The views around the farmhouse are even more amazing than the pictures show. It is nothing short of spectacular. There are lots of flexible spaces and we chose to have our ceremony on the front terrace with the view and our reception on big tables in the courtyard which is ideal for communal eating and easy access for the caterers. Mike, the owner, fixed us up with everything we needed and more, including a reliable and excellent local caterer and a ‘guy about town’ who could arrange anything and everything for us. Everyone was honest, kind and reliable and it made planning a wedding a breeze compared to any other location.

The weather at the time of year was fantastic, over 20 degrees with full sunshine every day. There are so many things to do in the area although the farmhouse is so nice that most of us didn’t leave for the whole week! Mike, the owner, has thought of everything and our whole family had an experience not to forget.

“Absolutely beautiful”

This villa far exceeded our expectations, it was set in the most beautiful location and had everything that we needed for a week off work! I travelled with 14 of my friends and we are definitely thinking about returning next year.
The owners were extremely friendly and very helpful. The booking was easy and the information we received about the villa and surrounding area was brilliant.
The best aspects for us were the massive pool and the outside courtyard with the outside kitchen, where we spent every evening cooking up a storm and there was plenty of space around the table for everyone!
The villa is beautifully decorated and in great condition, plenty of space and there's absolutely everything you need for a great holiday.
It was great value for money so if you're thinking of booking this place then - do it!!

“Fantastic stay in fabulous scenery”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The Almendillo is a sprawling, well kept, fully equipped villa which was perfect for our delighted group of 17 family members aged 5-75. Every nook and window overlooks the wonderful scenery of sprawling olive trees as far as the eye can see.
It is clear that Mike the owner cares deeply for the satisfaction and enjoyment of the experience and the results are clear. The rooms are comfortable and large, keeping the rustic feel of the finca.
The place is large enough to accommodate quiet periods of contemplation for those seeking it while squealing children need not be kept from their games.
The finca is blissfully isolated and the road to it winds along a dirt road between olive groves and farms, so that the feel of it is being all alone in the countryside. At nights it is so quiet you can hear the whole valley echoing with cicadas, owls and foxes. Hares hop among the olives and the finca cats make sure any wild guest stays out of its stout walls.
I wholeheartedly recommend the Almendrillo as the perfect getaway for large groups looking for remote bliss.
