Why Paul Jakobi chose Cártama

We took on the finca as a untouched lemon grove and with love of the natural surroundings we are developing an eco retreat that we hope respects the beauty of the area.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Stunning private surrounding in a National Park, private, peaceful and very beautiful yet only 2 km from the village and an easy 20 minute drive to Malaga and some of the best beaches in the area.

Fantastic Group Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 20 of us staying with 7 kids ageing from 2-8 years old, this was the perfect number for us at the lodge - had an absolute fantastic time and the kids loved every minute - the large grounds are enclosed and great to play games with the kids. Lovely outside area with BBQ for big meals and then our own bar and outside cinema for the evenings - loved it and Paul was great at helping get things organised

We had a wonderful time!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

As a group of 32, we spent one of the best weeks of our life in the picturesque grounds of Finca Al Limon. From the moment we enquired about this holiday, Paul was extremely helpful and went out of his way to ensure we had a beautiful week (He was happy to organise a coach to collect us from the airport and transport us to the beach which was amazing!). The house itself was perfect, and looked even better than the photos - the yurt, caravan, stage area, jacuzzi, pool and bar were extra special and we were able to relax during the day and party at night! Thank you so much for our wonderful week and we would love to return one day.

Amazing family holiday !

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 11 adults and 11 kids from 14 weeks to 12 years old spent the week here and had a great holiday! The Finca is a great place for adults and kids alike with plenty to do ,the pool , table tennis ,p?tanque, sand football pitch , outdoor cinema, free wifi , fishing in the river , bikes and horse riding down the road , the accommodation is basic but adequate , the aircon is only in one small room and the caravan ,there are lots of fans though, The outdoor bar area is great and has a good music system , There are loads of seating areas .the kitchen has two ovens but lacks cooking equipment and serving dishes .The BBQ and pizza oven are really good .We had a few teething problems with the outdoor cinema but once it was working it was a lovely way to end a day of swimming and sunbathing . I would recommend this finca and its beautiful surroundings ,fish pond ,river , lemon trees and mountain drop in the distance to anyone wanting a fun ,safe and varied holiday for all ages .
