“Beautiful house in a stunning setting”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed for a week at Almendrillo in July and it was a truly idyllic, wonderful holiday. It is set in breathtaking countryside, with stunning views of the hills all around. The finca has been meticulously renovated and is authentically Andalucian in feel - complete with touches like hand-painted tiling, wooden beams and shutters and beautiful hand-carved, dark-wood furniture. It's also very comfortable, with all the modern amenities we needed, including powerful showers, fans, excellently-equipped kitchens and a utility room.
In our group there were 18 of us - spanning three generations, and ranging in age from toddlers to elderly. Almendrillo suited all of our needs perfectly and provided plenty of space for all of us.
The grounds are huge, and there is something for everyone - there are several tranquil, comfortable spots to sit in the sun or shade overlooking the stunning valley, there's table tennis - which for us was a big hit with both adults and children - table football, lush green lawns complete with a swing and trees to climb, and, most impressively, a superb swimming pool with a panoramic view across the beautiful hills that surround it. We spent hours in this idyllic spot each day. The pool is enormous and immaculately maintained - the water is crystal clear - and also has a good-sized shallow end with built-in steps which was perfect for the younger children in our group. The pool area is equipped with loads of comfy sun loungers and a shady area, and even has its own WC/changing room.
Inside the house there are two kitchens, and a huge amount of space, plentiful bathrooms and communal living rooms, complete with a billiards table and TVs. In the lovely, cobblestoned central courtyard - where we spent our evenings enjoying long, leisurely dinners at the long table - there is a further barbecuing/cooking area. The lovely, friendly owner Mike, who was extremely helpful and thoughtful throughout - organised for a local chef to make us a delicious paella one evening.
We spent most of our time at Almendrillo as there was plenty there to keep us all entertained. We popped into the local village just down the hill, where there is a friendly bar, a shop and a children's playground. We also visited the lovely nearby town of Loja, and also spent a day at Iznajar, where we visited the amazing 9th century Moorish castle and the beautiful beach on a freshwater lake.
I would thoroughly recommend Almendrillo for a large group holiday in a beautiful rural setting. As soon as we got home, our children were already asking us when we could go back there! It was a fabulous, unforgettable holiday.

“Wonderful accomodation with spectacular views”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A group of 16 of us had a great time at Almendrillo. After a relatively short drive from Malaga airport we arrived to find our pre-ordered drinks already stored away for us in the cool chest - need to get priorities right!
Almendrillo is a wonderful old Finca with lots of space and interesting rooms full of character. The weather was so good that most of our time was spent outside eating, playing and relaxing. The breeze in the hills was welcome in the heat, as were the numerous shaded ‘break out’ areas (ideal for smaller groups to pass the time) and a lovely large pool, again with shade.
The views from the Finca are spectacular and its situation within striking distance of Granada, Cordoba and Seville could not be bettered. We finished the week with a meal cooked and delivered to us from the local village bar.
We would thoroughly recommend Villa Almendrillo.

“Perfect family reunion”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent a blissful week at Almendrillo with our extended family. There were 17 of us altogether, ranging in age from 1 to 68, and Almendrillo suited everyone, even the teenagers. The house itself is so beautiful, and surrounded by gorgeous countryside, wherever you are in the house or the garden you can rest your eyes on hills and olive groves and wonderful skies.
The pool is fabulous and our gang of boys spent most of he day in it. Its long enough to swim laps and has a spacious shallow end for small children to frolic in. We also made great use of the table tennis table. The house is wonderfully equipped, both kitchens are a pleasure to cook. Mike and Emma arranged for a local expert to come and not only cook us a paella, but show us how to do it, so that we were able to try out what we had learnt a couple of days later, with gratifying success.
We were so happy in the house hat we hardly ventured out, but one lovely trip to view a local waterfall and swim in its pool showed us there was plenty to do outside the house too.
We had a perfect holiday.Mike and Emma were wonderfully helpful and made everything easy. And the weather was amazing!
