The house is absolutely wonderful and the garden is beautiful. The house is in a stunning spot and is the perfect place to spend some quality time as a family. It was a magical week and we hope to return next year
A bunch of 6 ageing cyclists set upon conquering the surrounding mountains thoroughly enjoyed returning to the calmness of Almond Hill House nestled among olive plantings with views of the surrounding peaks. A room for each with great showers and comfortable beds. Refreshing pool after a day in the saddle. Well organised kitchen outside table in the afternoon sun. Washing machine for cycling gear! Great local restaurants. What more could we need!! Sarah & Matt are well organised and attentive hosts. Can recommend strongly
My family and I had the most amazing time at Almond Hill House this summer. The setting really needs to be seen to be believed. The ancient farmhouse sits surrounded by olive groves and fig trees and lemon trees. From your sun bed, you have a vision of clear blue sky, warm Andalusian sun and the green, green mountains opposite. But it’s still a short drive or slightly longer walk to the charming, nearby town of Orgiva. The house itself is enormous and beautifully done up. There are books and paintings everywhere but also all the modern conveniences you might need. The pool is safe, clean and huge – our kids pretty much lived in it for the break. The great thing about the house is it puts you in the middle of a rural idyll that is still completely accessible by foot/car. Orgiva itself has a magical air to it and you might bump into many a new age traveller there. All in all, I would rate this vacation a 10/10. I have already booked for next summer.
We were a family group of 8 with ages ranging from 11 to 57 years old. Almond Hill House provided the ideal accommodation for us all and Matt and Sarah had put a great deal of thought into making our stay as comfortable as possible. Homemade bread and their own delicious olive oil and home grown vegetables were in the kitchen on our arrival. They were also nearby if help was needed and we enjoyed getting to know them over a drink one evening.
We had a fantastic time making full use of the pool, the table tennis table and barbecue and we all slept well due to the good quality beds and very quiet air conditioning in the bedrooms ( it was exceptionally hot during our time there ).
The location of the house made it possible to easily visit the beach, a water park and the Alhambra which we did and thoroughly enjoyed.
Almond Hill House is definitely somewhere we would consider returning to in the future.
Our family group spanned three generations, the youngest being 6 months old. The house worked really well, especially the outside space. The pool was a good size and wonderfully clean (and secure). There was plenty of space to eat and relax out of doors. Inside was clean and cool. the owners live nearby and were very helpful.
