“A perfect stay”
Reviewed October 6, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

During our 10 days at finca los pinos we couldn't have asked for more. The setting nestled on the side of a hill on rural Spain provided the perfect back drop for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. During the evenings you can spend time reading books on the terrace and enjoying a few drinks by the pool. Sarah and David made sure our stay was well catered for, If we needed a few tips on where to head in town or what walks to take in the national park (conveniently located a 2 minute walk out of Finca los pinos.) We also were provided the opportunity to take day trips organised by the owners to a variety of locations and was definitely and opportunity not to be missed!

The room we stayed in was ideal for us with all the facilities we required to cook our evening meals or just to relax and prepare for the day ahead. Everything was clean and well set out.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to sample one of David Brai's or his curries which can be provided on certain nights.

All in all we were recommended this property by a family member and it more than lived up to expectations. We had a perfect stay with the options available to do as much or as little as you wish to. The location is well suited for either long day trips to the beaches or hiking in the mountains. I guarantee you'll be feeling totally relaxed by the end of your holiday at Finca Los Pinos.

“Peaceful and wonderful bar-b-q's”

This was a wonderful find in the hills above Malaga
We spent a peaceful week here and were looked after by our wonderful hosts David and Sarah.
David was happy to serve a superb south African BBQ by the side of the pool. The villa we stayed in was the delightful La Piquenta with a flower strewn terrace which you could sit by in the evenings and look out over the valley watching the swallows endlessly chasing each other in the warm night air.

We were also situated on the edge of the national park which meant we didn't have to take the car every day and could just walk straight out into the wooded hills.
Although David was more than happy to help arrange excursions such as horse riding or picnics if we wished.

Competa nearby is an unspoilt whitewashed Spanish hill town with a square that has restaurants and bordered with orange trees worth a visit.
We will definitely be back next year.

“Absolutely beautiful!!! Perfect with or without children!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

WOW! I needed a relaxing but fun holiday with the kids and this place really did deliver! I rented The Main House for the week and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The bedrooms were perfect, the facilities were fantastic - it was like a home away from home - and it provided us with a good base to go and explore the natural wildlife. David and Sarah were incredibly helpful, getting us maps of the national park for walks and setting us up with horseriding and getting us transport down to the coast - with tips on the best places to go on the beach with kids. I finally needed a break, so we organised an African Drumming workshop by the pool - with two boys it was a no brainer - and I had a lovely massage and general pampering by the pool. Bliss. I want to come back as soon as possible and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a good break from the fast pace of life, but also a solid base to go exploring. Next time I definitely want a log cabin!

Oh...and if you do stay here...I recommend the South African BBQ that David does around the pool - delicious!

Thank you very much Alexandra. It was such a pleasure to have you stay at Finca Los Pinos. Your children were delightful and we can still see their faces grinning from ear to ear as they learned to play the African drums. We hope you visit again. Your children may be old enough to take on the four by four beach buggy tours into the park next time!! Thank you again, kind regards David and Sarah Mills
