About the Owner

We are a couple who live in Lancashire. After searching for the ideal property over a long period of time we came across Finca Meli and, after a short visit, fell in love with it and bought it. This is a piece of paradise come to earth. We spend as much time as we can there in our home from home. We hope to share it with you. We are sure that you will love it too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying at Finca Meli last week. The finca was very comfortable and the view in particular was stunning. It was great to be able to get away from it all and enjoy the tranquility up in the hills."



"We have just had the most perfect holiday and absolutelylove your villa.We were so comfortable there, what a fantastic place to own. The views are stunning. It is the most wonderful setting,peace and tranquillity - just what we needed. The veranda with all those pots and plants was so lovely we spent many hours sitting there, just wonderful."

Fantastic property in a stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, I know the title includes overused adjectives, but I couldn't think of any other way to describe this place.

I don't think I've ever spent so much time just admiring a view!

The photos and description undersell this property - the reality is so much better. We spent 10 days doing nearly nothing but relaxing and unwinding - the accommodation is comfortable and homely, the kitchen a little 'bijou' but well-equipped with everything we needed during our stay. We did a major shop on the way there from the airport (off at junction 272 of the A7 to El Ingenio, where there is a shopping complex with everything - including an Eroski hypermarket), but many of the basic items we bought were already there at the finca.

The outside area is a suntrap and the pool is fab, if a little cold in May - but it did get used! A vehicle is necessary as Torrox Pueblo and Frigiliana, although only a few kilometers away, are a bit far to walk when the sun is beating down. Try the Venta el Cortijo Restaurante on the way in to Frigiliana for authentic local food at knockdown prices - they even have a swimming pool for when the weather gets too hot! Frigiliana is a very pretty village in a spectacular setting, but get there early as it can become crowded and parking spaces in town difficult to find.

We really enjoyed our stay at Finca Meli and the price is unbeatable for the luxury of our own private pool - it should be kept a secret, but that wouldn't be fair, would it? We hope to be able to return soon - that is if it isn't completely booked up!

Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful clean and well equipped villa is all you need for a spot of R & R. Although of the beaten track it offers fantastic views and a tranquil setting. A lovely clean pool with a veranda that rounds it all off, the perfect setting you can not fail to chillax.

Nerja has some great restaurants and is only 20 mins away with our favourite restuarant being 34.

A superb villa that we will revisit.

High Quality Villa

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this place undersell it. It's fairly remote but only 45 mins from Malaga, or 15 from Frigiliana, has fantastic views down the valley, is well equipped, has a lovely pool area, and gets the sun all day. Having stayed in a few rental villas, this one is certainly a gem.

If you're trying to get away from it all, and fancy a week of relaxation by the pool, in good quality surroundings, this is the one for you.

Location

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Within 20 mins drive you can be at Torrox Costa with its attractive promenade lined by numerous and varied eating establishments. Nerja is not much further where Burriana Beach is an absolute jewel.

Travel:

A car is essential for your stay at Finca Meli. You can easily arrange to collect a vehicle on your arrival at Malaga Airport which is 50mins drive from the villa.

Distances:

A 20 min drive takes you to Frigiliana, a traditional white village recognised as one the most beautiful in Spain. It is oozing with the history of its 3 cultures - Jewish, Muslim and Christian. Donkeys are still used as transport on the cobbled streets.

Malaga is well worth a visit for its unmistakably Spanish atmosphere. Regular buses run from Torrox. Granada is 1 1/2hrs drive. The Alhambra is spectacular.
