Mongolian Yurt in Coin, Costa del Sol, Spain - Spanish Yurt Holiday Retreat Especially For Two (Glamping in Spain)

Finca Azahar is nestled in the Valle De Azahar (Valley of Blossom) a small holding set in four acres of picturesque land made up of olive, orange, lemon groves and many other varieties of fruit trees and an array of native Mediterranean flowering shrubs and plants of which one incorporates a lovely swimming pool area, with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and the pretty village of Coín only 4km in the distance with its numerous restaurants and bars of a typical white village while Malaga airport is only 15k distance. Located between two rivers, one being the Rio Grande which is one of the largest and well known rivers in the area with many species of bird and wildlife within a 5 min walk .

( please visit our web site at the bottom of facilities page for further details )

Our beautiful six metre traditional handmade Mongolian Yurt with its typical colored decorative outer cover and felt liner is set on a raised handmade wooden floor on a secluded terrace amongst the olive trees with its own private garden and pool. The yurt has its own bespoke separate shower room and toilet with hot water and a fully equipped covered rustic summer kitchen with fridge, barbeque, oven, hob, pots, pans, kitchen utensils, glasses and crockery with a pretty shaded eating area under the olive and eucalyptus trees.

Staying in our yurt will evoke the romantic nomad in you, giving you a feeling of being closer and more in harmony with nature without forgoing any luxuries you would like on your holiday incl wifi internet and cd player, with superior living space and comfortable rustic furnishings to relax in and get away from the pressures of everyday living. Enjoy a peaceful nights sleep in the comfortable double bed whilst stargazing through the central roof crown window.

Outside:

Wake up to birdsong with views out over the orange and lemon groves down to the river and eucalyptus tree forest. Walk just a few paces through a tall pine hedged archway to take a cool swim in your private pool or just sit and relax by the fish pond and soak up the sun. The door to the Yurt has a lock and key for added peace of mind during your days out.

The owners live on a separate area of the Finca and can help with any advice you may need regarding walks, places to visit and any general knowledge of the area. We are enthusiastic gardeners and lovers of nature, the quiet life, growing all our own vegetables and herbs in the greenhouse and raised beds set in amongst the orange trees. We have chickens for free range eggs, two friendly dogs and a cat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Thank you for a fantastic adventure: our very own authentic Mongolian yurt complete with art deco bed and private bathroom and kitchen tucked away amidst shady trees and flowers. And the fabulous pool too! Thanks too for your warm yet discreet welcome – we relished the peace and quiet of this lovely location. And Sarah’s meals are a delicious delight when you’re too relaxed to prepare your own!”

Jane Biro, South London, September 2012



“I stayed in the yurt for one night and loved every minute! Being so secluded and private, the place offers a real opportunity to enjoy the peace and quiet! The yurt is stunningly beautiful, decorated and cleaned with love and to the highest standards. Expect a warm welcome and unspoilt character of the surrounding farm nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of Andalusia. It is a real gem! THANK YOU for having me, I had an amazing time and I look forward to returning soon!”

Peaceful and quiet. Friendly Owners

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property in peaceful surroundings. The pictures give a good idea of the facilities and the privacy of the Yurt and garden area. Everything was in good order and clean on arrival. Sarah and Dave could not have been more helpful, especially when we had a mini-drama with the hire car! We would definitely stay here again and recommend to any couple looking for a quiet and romantic holiday.

Lots to do in the surrounding area. Camino del Rey, Ronda, Lakes, Walks, a range of beaches not too far away.

A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights in late July. It had always been my dream to stay in a yurt and this was perfect. The yurt itself was spacious and very well equipped. It was extremely comfortable and felt very romantic. Just as good was the outside space: a rustic open-air kitchen, a BBQ, a cabin with shower and, best of all, a private pool! The yurt is situated on the owner's land but completely secluded, and the owners themselves are friendly and helpful yet respectful of their guests' privacy. We are seasoned campers so this was absolute luxury for us and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. It's a short drive to Coin but apart from doing some shopping we did not leave the yurt at all it was that perfect! Can't wait to go back..

Stunning location, amazing accomodation!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife spent a long weekend at Finca Azahar as part of her 30th birthday celebrations! I had kept the accomodation as a surprise for her and on arrival she was blown away, by the beauty of the location and the quirkiness of the accomodation. A perfect start to a weekend that only got better. The pool temperature was a cool 31 degrees celsius all weekend with the air temperature soaring to 47! We spent our days lazing around the pool in the gorgeous groves surroundings, eating food cooked in our own kitchen. On an evening we would drive into Coin and eat at some of the restaurants that were all very reasonably priced, the food on offer far outstripped the price tag attached! On an evening the temperature would drop just enough so that you could comfortably sit outside and enjoy a bottle of beer and by the time we were turning into bed it was nice and cool inside the yurt. On Sunday we took the 30 minute drive over the hills into Puerta Banus for a gentle stroll around and enjoyed a drink overlooking the marina, before heading home on the Monday.

The yurt is in an ideal location for the airport and for a day trip to the coast, but this is not necessary as there is plenty of places to eat nearby, and if you are looking for a relaxing holiday you never really need to leave the finca all day! Sarah and David were ideal hosts, not intrusive at all, very laid back and very helpful when looking for restaurant recomendations, directions to local places, best supermarkets etc... (We ate at the Bohemian, Figo de Juan and an Indian restuarant - left at the bins!) All of them very delicious and given more time would have been worthy of a second visit during the stay.

I can't say anything negative of this place or the people. Thank You for such a memorable weekend!

Location

From the Owner

We purchased our Finca over 20 years ago and have had a great experience and a lot of personal pleasure bringing our orange grove back to life and planting as many varied trees and plants as possible. We are enthusiastic gardeners and lovers of nature, the quiet life, growing all our own vegetables and herbs in the greenhouse and raised beds set in amongst the orange trees. We also have chickens for free range eggs, two friendly dogs and a cat and on a separate area of the Finca next to the river we keep our 3 horses and ride out in this beautiful countryside whenever possible.

The famous towns of Marbella and Puerto Banus are just 25 minutes away where you can enjoy the beaches, a pleasant walk on the promenade, shop, eat or view the beautiful yachts at Puerto Banus marina. A Further 30 minutes along the coast, visit the historic Rock of Gibraltar.

Further Details:

Activites Visit Coín only 5 minutes away and sample the wonderful Mediterranean cuisine in one of the many restaurants or traditional tapas bars. Soak up the local history whilst enjoying a morning coffee or a cold beer in the afternoon sunshine. There are 2 town fairs “feria” during May and August and the horse fair “Romeria” takes place at the end of May/beginning of June when locals dress in traditional costume.

In the immediate area include horse riding, walking, eating, shopping, local markets, ceramic factory or just relaxing by the pool.

Should you wish to take your walking activity further afield we can advise and provide maps.

An absolute must is a trip to Ardales Lakes or locally known as El Chorro and the location of the infamous “Camino Del Rey”. Just 30 minutes drive from Coín, this stunning natural area is ideal for a drive around, a relaxing or a vigorous walk, the local cuisine or enjoying a day sunbathing by the lakes where you can also part-take in swimming or kayaking.

The city of Malaga is 20 minutes away. This charming city is steeped in history and is well worth a visit and hopping on the city sightseeing buses. The port had a re-vamp in 2012 and now hosts some fantastic shops, restaurants and bars by the waters edge.

Head further inland to Ronda and see the breathtaking “Puente Nuevo” bridge over the Tajo Canyon and the 13th and 14th Century Arab baths. In Antequera, visit the Alcazaba and the excavated Roman baths.
