I was very fortunate that I got my first ever holiday abroad to this wonderful location. My husband, daughter and I holidayed here with my sister and brother in law who had the pleasure of spending time here before. As they are seasoned travellers it was a foregone conclusion that Finca Fenix was something special when they wanted to return to it. As soon as we arrived we were made so welcome by hosts Mark and Kim, nothing was any trouble for them and they were extremely helpful with our questions about the area. The house and gardens are so perfect!! We got to explore some beautiful areas, near and far. A ten minute walk to the train station, half an hour on a very timely and immaculate train and we were in Malaga. Although the weather wasn't perfect it didn't matter as it was ALWAYS warm in the hot tub, relaxing in there with a cold drink and beautiful scenery everywhere. The bar has been set very high for future holidays, but we will definitely be visiting here again!!

It was great to meet you guys - we had a hoot on the occasions when we chilled out together. We generally try and make ourselves scarce when we have guests to allow them more privacy and give us a break but felt like we had know you all for an absolute age! See you next time! M&Kxxx

“Too good to be forgotten.....Now what more can I say?”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The 2nd fantastic stay for my niece, husband & I, joined by my sister & brother in law for whom it was their first trip to Spain. They now dread their next holiday as it could never eclipse the experience of the oasis that is Finca Fenix. Once again Mark & Kim excelled at providing a beautiful place to unwind or explore & absorb the cultural & natural treasures in which the village & surrounding area abounds.

“Lovely relaxing friendly retreat”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Myself, my friend and our two children (both 8 years old) stayed ad Finca Fenix in August and had a fabulous 10 days.

Mark and Kim have chickens and turtles and taught the kids how to feed them and in the case of the chickens collect the eggs. It was a daily expedition to go and make sure the chickens were OK, see if we could have scrambled eggs and then feed the turtles.

The apartment is beautifully furnished and the aircon was a welcome addition given it was August. The kids would retreat indoors in the heat of the sun (between 4 and 5 in the afternoon) and come back again after that had recharged their batteries.

Much time was spent playing in the pool and an occasional treat in the jacuzzi.

We didn't do much at all on holiday as we have busy lives at home and it was the perfect place to stay.

Wifi helped us keep in touch with the UK and Mark also introduced me to the local gym so I could do some exercise while away.

All in all we loved it and have already booked to return next year :)

Thanks Mark and Kim for looking after us so well and thank you for the time you took with our kids - they loved it and are looking forward to jumping all over you in the pool again next year.

Until then...

“The most relaxing holiday I've ever had!”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Finca Felix is a hidden delight! The villa itself is beautifully furnished & the gardens are a tropical delight!!
I holidayed for 10 days with a friend, both of us having an 8 year old child, one boy, one girl. The kids ADORED it from the start, spending hour upon hour in the gorgeous pool, allowing us adults to simply relax in the sunshine. The children made friends with the cats, Hector & Clifford & delighted in looking for eggs from the very obliging chickens, not to mention the thrill of seeing the turtles that reside in the fountain!
A fabulous escape, where we were able to completely unwind, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, knowing the children were very happy & safe.
Kim & Mark are a delight to behold! Fabulous hosts, bringing the perfect level of privacy & yet a stones throw should we need them! Will I go back?? Try & stop me!! XX
