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 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.

Wonderful family holiday in a great finca and beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Alan and Nancy welcomed us with open arms and their advice re local visits, restaurants and shops were invaluable.

The finca was beautifully presented and the five en-suite bedrooms had everything you needed.

We spent most of our time on the expansive terrace or at pool. The barbecue and boules court were also well used.

The children loved the chickens and eggs and collected limes lemons figs and almonds which we all enjoyed.

Again thank you Alan and Nancy for all your help before and during our stay. You made our family holiday a holiday we will all remember.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This little hideaway is as near perfect as it comes! A couple of miles from the local town, you can relax in splendid rural isolation. The villa is very well equipped with good sized bedrooms, all en-suite, large eating areas, a well equipped kitchen and outdoor barbecue. The pool is a reasonable size, cleaned regularly ,with plenty of sunbeds to laze around on. There's also a boules area, and plenty of outdoor space if you want to be on your own. We collected our eggs each day from the chickens, ate nectarines and squeezed our own lemon and orange juice from fruit we picked ourselves in the five acre site.

Alan and Nancy, the owners, live in the villa for two thirds of the year, and are on hand should you require anything at all - a generous "Welcome" pack is provided, including biscuits, teabags, milk, bread, beer and wine! Nothing was too much trouble for them!

We did one major shop at the large supermarket in the nearest main town, some 30km away, and thereafter catered locally. As a family of six adults we were happy to laze by the pool, watch the goatherds on the hills opposite and generally chew the fat. It was idyllic!

The villa comes with a pretty good speed broadband and digital tv, including UK Freeview, but I don't think we turned it on other than to look at the election result, sigh, and pour another glass of Rioja!

All in all this was an ideal getaway location. If you don't like being in a rural setting, don't book it!

We adored it!

Perfect location for family get-together in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a week's stay at Finca Amorosa and really enjoyed our time there. The finca is beautiful with very attractive and comfortable bedrooms, a large kitchen, cosy lounge and spacious outside areas. We were lucky with the weather, so bbq-ed every night and enjoyed big family dinners (10 people) around the large terrace table. The views were stunning and we loved hearing the goat bells at the beginning and end of the day. The kids loved the pool and enjoyed playing petonque in the special area set aside for this. They also loved collecting the freshly laid eggs from the hens every afternoon - we had eggs for breakfast the next day and made lots of tortillas for dinner! Picking oranges from the orange trees every morning and squeezing them for breakfast also added to the Finca Anorosa experience! Nancy and Alan were so welcoming and just a Whats App away if we had a question or problem. We very much appreciated the very generous welcome pack they provided for us including fresh bread, butter, wine, beer, juice, teabags, coffee, jam, cornflakes and several other very thoughtful items. All in all this was the perfect place to spend a family holiday, we have left with very happy memories and would love to return! Many thanks to Alan and Nancy who made us feel so welcome and comfortable, we really enjoyed our stay at your lovely finca!

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!
