A perfectly appointed (and equipped) apartment set in a real olive grove close to Algodonales (one of Andalusia's famous "White Villages"), spectacular scenery & sunsets from the terrace and pool, and very welcoming hosts, we thoroughly recommend Finca el Olivar as THE perfect place for couples wanting peace and seclusion in Andalusia's dramatic natural environment. We will certainly be going back!
Karyn and Richard are a lovely couple who welcomed us very warmly. Finca el Olivar is a beautiful apartment which is kept immaculately. It has all the amenities you could possibly need including a great wood burner for the colder months, which we made good use of. The panoramic views across the olive groves and mountains are spectacular. We had hoped to go paragliding but unfortunately, we had unprecedented stormy weather so we'll have to return another time. The museums and attractions in Seville and the Museo Picasso in Malaga were easy to reach by car, as were the beautiful town of Setenil and the castle overlooking Olvera. The Finca is also not far away from a bird reserve full of wild flamingoes. All the mountaintop villages and towns have plenty of welcoming bars and restaurants and lots of interesting houses, architecture and scenic roads. Thanks for our holiday Karyn and Richard. We had a brilliant time. Love and best wishes, Leonore and Ben
This was an amazing place to stay, so quiet and relaxing. The apartment is finished to an extremely high standard, the views are breathtaking and the pool stunning and private. We will definitely book again for this year and would recommend to anyone who is keen to explore rural Spain.
This is a gem! We were looking for a place to relax and do some full or half day trips in the south Andalucian area. Did we find one! Karyn and Richard are the most welcoming and lovely couple who will make your stay most comfortable. The appartment is great, everything you need is available with a large and luxurious bathroom, a large kitchen with all necessities and a lovely bed (which they will make up as two singles or one kingsize bed). The views are stunning, up on a hill surrounded by olive trees overlooking one the many valleys in the area. You can do trips nearby which up into the mountains where paragliders take off or make full day trips to Cádiz or Sevilla (both only a good hours drive). If you are looking for a place to really wind down in all the comfort and luxury you need, this is the place to be! And to top it all off you get to experience the hospitality of the hosts! Hasta luego Karyn and Richard! Joeri and Amber.
