Overview

About the property

Stunning location in tranquil countryside, yet only 45 minutes from Malaga

Finca Amorosa a restored Andalucian farmhouse to rent.

Five En-Suite Bedrooms, Sleeps from 6 up to 10 Guests In all cases the property is for the sole use of the tenant.

Peace, tranquility and relaxation in beautiful countryside surroundings.

The Finca has been restored and furnished to a very high standard, whilst maintaining many original features such as wooden beams and stone walls. The accommodation offers:

• Five en-suite bedrooms, two of which are fixed king size double beds and three of which can be made up as super king size or twin beds. For the warmer months all bedrooms have fixed ceiling fans.

• Spacious lounge with wood burning stove, TV (English programs) DVD/ Blu-Ray and a large selection of books and board games.

• Rustic style kitchen, but with all modern convenience. Full range of cooking utensils and place settings for 10 guests.

• Internet Wifi is available throughout the property

However, as we are all aware Andalucía is about “alfresco dinning”, relaxing with that “sundowner” or spending a lazy day at the swimming pool. With a large terrace, outside seating and dining facilities for ten guests and large gas BBQ, Finca Amorosa is the perfect place.

Guests are welcome to wonder the Finca and help themselves to fresh fruit in season, Oranges, Lemons, Figs, Persimmon’s, Plums, Peaches and Quinces. Being fully fenced and with an electric gate Finca Amorosa is the perfect place for children to roam and explore.

Finca Amorosa is very private and tranquil yet only five minutes’ drive from the traditional small Spanish town of Villanueva De La Concepcion. Here you can find ATMs, supermarket, bars and restaurant’s together with a twenty four hour medical clinic.

Granada (The Albambra Palace) Cordoba (The Grand Mosque) Malaga (Picasso Museum) and Seville (World’s Largest Cathedral) are all an easy days’ excursion from Finca Amorosa. Also El Torcal Nature Park and El Chorro National Park with wonderful swimming lakes are short drives away. We have had guests who have had a wonderful holiday visiting all of the above, also we have had guests who have had a wonderful holiday and never left the property. It is UP TO YOU..!

About Alan John

The owners have restored Finca Amorosa from near dereliction, a labour of love that took two years to complete. Originally from UK, a semi-retired mechanical engineer and his wife a fluent Spanish and English speaker.

Our enjoyment comes from seeing our guests stand on the Terrace and be impressed by the inviting and amazing landscape views from Finca Amorosa!

Why Alan John chose Villanueva de la Concepción

Finca Amorosa ' a rustic enchanting paradaise' offers pure peace and tranquility... it is pure heaven! The views are stunning, the air is pure, predominate sounds are the birds and goat bells. And yet the village bars are social, ... can be even rowdy if a game of dominoes gets out of hand.! Come here for an authentic life experience of all that is gentle, sweet, simple and kind...!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Finca Amorosa offers you: Free Wireless internet, wood for the Log Fire and a basic Welcome Pack plus is very conveniently located to the local Supermarket, Restaurants and Bars.

Finca Amorosa is not far away from Antequera, from where 'the golden triangle' starts, that is Granada/ Cordoba / Seville. Ideally placed for the 'culture trail'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Who knew watching goats cross the hillside could be so meditative or squeezing fresh lemons for cocktails could so enhance a flavour!

What you offer at Finca Amorosa is an authentic life experience of all that is gentle, sweet, simple and kind.

Our family shall be challenged to top this vacation.

When reminiscing this experience amongst ourselves and friends back home (Ohio, Viriginia) it will be with equal parts joy & nostalgia. Muchisimas gracias.

Amazing holiday in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing holiday in this beautiful villa, the pool, the gardens, the chickens and even the hearding of the goats that you can see from the veranda on the hills all added to our perfect stay. Alan and Nancy were so helpful and went above and beyond to ensure we had a perfect holiday, I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.

Exactly what the reviews say!

  • 5 of 5

Renting a place to stay over the internet can always be a hit or a miss but Finca Amorosa is everything the reviews and the pictures led me to believe: Beautiful! I've never enjoyed a holiday as much as I enjoyed this one. Being up in the hills away from everything was exactly what was needed by all.

Alan & Nancy are very lovely. Nancy organised horse riding and looked after me after a wasp sting. Alan came around every two days to clean the pool and helped suggest places to eat when we wanted to go out for dinner one of the days.

Although a few of the days we stayed there we went out, we could have all easily stayed at the villa and just not left.

There really isn't a lot else that I can say, that hasn't already been said in previous reviews. I'll definitely be looking to return in the future!

If you're looking for somewhere secluded and peaceful, this is your place!

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

This is a very special place. The house is beautiful and is situated in a beautiful quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

Alan and Nancy have thought of everything to make this spot comfortable and lovely. It is easy to live here and hard to leave. The house is carefully planned and works well for groups of friends - we were three couples. We have travelled together for over a decade, and this place gave us a vacation experience we will never forget.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place to stay. Extremely clean. Upon arriving at the farmhouse we were met by Nancy and Allan and made to feel very welcome and at home and we’re always contactable. We had a lovely gift basket with coffee, tea, fresh bread, homemade marmalade, biscuits etc along beer and white wine in the fridge and red wine on the side. The view is amazing. We only ate out once as it was a shame to leave the accommodation as it is so beautiful. Pool was cleaned during our stay and more fresh bread was brought for us. The children loved collecting fresh eggs every day along with oranges, lemons, limes and pomegranates from the trees. The view is fantastic. The most relaxing holiday any of us have had. The kids loved having there own pool and really enjoyed playing bouls. We all felt so at home here. A lovely place to relax and be together as a family (the children loved playing taboo which is one of the many games on hand to play) Can not recommend coming here more. Hopefully this won’t be our only visit.

Absolutely wonderful Villa and location.

  • 5 of 5

It's set in the mountains but only 10 mins drive to local town.

Alan and Nancy met us late at night 1am because our flight was delayed and went through

everything with us.

Fresh chicken eggs every morning from the chickens and Alan pops in with bread every now and then.

Highly recommend this Villa and the location, quiet and peaceful, will come again.

Villanueva de la Concepcion prides itself on being the village 'mas cerca de EL TORCAL' or “ village at the foot of the Torcal”. This remarkable mountain range of limestone rock formations eroded by wind and rain over millions of years attracts many walkers, birdwatchers and cyclists. There is a very informative VisitorCentre at the top. Villanueva de la Concepción is used to welcoming visitors, its many restaurants and bars frequented by tourists and locals alike. The town, which remains quite small, has a population of around three thousand; four cars and a tractor constitute a traffic jam! Its elevation at roughly 500m above sea level gives it an ideal climate, mixing the heat of the Costa with fresh mountain breezes. Throughout the year there are a range of Fiestas and Carnivals, we even celebrate the town’s birthday in November and have the eagerly awaited broad bean festival in May, these are but to name a few. All these events are of course a great opportunity for locals to come together and celebrate with their neighbours, friends and relatives. From Villanueva de la Concepcion you can take a drive to the nearby “Lake District Area of Andalucía', or visit during the season (April till August), the Flamingo nesting site at Fuente de Piedra Lake. Also spend a day visiting the historic city of Antequera with its prehistoric caves “The Dolmenes”. From Finca Amorosa you can experience a close encounter with Wolves at the unique 'Lobo Park', also available a petting zoo. Also available a visit to the local Goat Farm.

There is so much to do and see that you will ONLY wish you had booked for a longer stay!
