“Time to unwind and relax”
Reviewed 5 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012
1
person found this review helpful

We spent 2 weeks in the Stables and had a wonderful time. The owners were welcoming and friendly; the accommodation spacious, clean and very comfortable. We were there in August, probably the hottest weeks of the year or so it felt and it was lovely to be able to cool off in the pool whenever we wanted. Quiet enough to be able to feel totally isolated, but central enough to be able to travel to different parts of Almeria, Finca Arboleda is an ideal place for a holiday. The garden has lime trees, fig trees and a pomegranite tree(and probably others) and you can help yourself to any of these. There is a BBQ and we spent many evenings sitting outside with a bottle of wine,watching the bats dart among the trees.
Vera comes to life on Saturdays when the streets are taken over by a colourful market. Don't drive into Vera, like we did on the day we arrived or you may end up totally lost! However the market is well worth a visit. Mojocar is a resort nearby and the old town nestling up in the hills is vibrant and lively at night with some great restaurants.
We also spent time snorkelling - a new experience but amzing seeing so many different fish. However the main idea of the holiday was to get our energy back, relax and read all those books that we had put off reading during the ccourse of the year. Finca Arboleda is the perfect place to do this, with its superb villa and great owners.

“PEACEFUL PLEASURE”
Reviewed 26 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012
1
person found this review helpful

There is a distinct danger that concerns me about describing a great holiday which involves seclusion and serenity, and that is that you will go there and spoil it for me.
We travelled to Spain at the end of June and for two weeks and stayed at the Old Stables, which is a spacious, two-bedroomed holiday home, set on its own, at the bottom of a drive in an olive grove. If you wish to go there with a family expecting on-site entertainment, this is not the place for you. Expect only calm and a sense of isolation from the bustle of usual life. Other than a visit from some rabbits, several birds and bats, and Michael occasionally watering the grove; tranquillity reigns. Even the fact that Spain had won the European Football Championship gave us only muted background noise from fireworks and people cheering in the far distance. It disturbed neither my wife's reading outside, in the least, nor my contemplation of a bottle of rioja. A car is a essential due to the rural setting, but as a base for visiting the area of Almeria, it is perfect; there are a number of towns and cities within easy reach. Vera, being the local and large town; with a number of supermarkets and a very busy market on Saturday, which spills along the main streets and down the side streets. This provides entertainment for the people-watchers and an array of local fare for those interested in increasing the waistline. I enjoy snorkelling and found a number of small coves, beyond the main beaches, where very few tourists venture. There are many restaurants in the area but the best, as with the coves, need a little detective work. You will be assisted in this matter by the little blue book, which includes many discoveries by previous occupants. When I returned from my adventures, I cooled off in the pool, which seemed to be a constant 38deg C. when we were there. I made lemonade with lemons from the various fruit trees in the garden and then relaxed with my book outside our haven, until we needed to consider a meal. Our exceptional hosts of this idyll are Michael and Pirkko, ably supported by Stig the dog (named after a weatherman??) who will assist you, only if you ask, so as not to impose. You see, I told you they were good! The downside to my holiday was that I drove to Spain from Wales (a 3000 mile round trip), I enjoyed it, but my wife didn't. We'll be flying next time!
If you believe this report to be hyperbole, then there is only one way to find out. If you don't try it, then I keep my retreat to myself.

“Relaxing winter break in the Spanish sunshine”
Reviewed 20 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We spent a week in the old stables, having left Gatwick at -10 deg C to be greeted in Spain with brilliant sunshine and 15 to 20 deg C warmth.

Without wanting to repeat what's already been said, the accomodation is superb, the owners very friendly and helpful if needed.

We loved being able to pick oranges to make our own juice, lemons for cooking, not to mention the olive oil and free-range eggs.

Whilst Vera itself is nothing special, the location provides a superb base for exploring the abundance of nearby beaches and hillside villages. Alhambra at Granada is an amazing 2+ hour drive through the Sierra Nevada mountains, and well worth the journey.

We'll be back !

“EXCELLENT HOLIDAY”
Reviewed 23 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We had a wonderful time at Finca Arboleda, Michael, Pirkko and Stig the dog!! were excellent hosts. We stayed in the Villa which was very clean and had everything we needed, including parasols and cold box for days out. The salt swimming pool is lovely, very clean and in a beautiful peaceful spot, in fact the whole place is tranquil, with olive groves, fig, pomegranite, orange and lime trees all around, as well as the local wild life (rabbits, birds)......

The area is a great place to explore around Vera and we made good use of the guest book, which gave great tips on beaches and towns to visit as well as excellent places to eat. A true Spanish experience.

We will certainly be back as Michael and Pirkko offer so much and are very helpful, they get the balance right between being very helpful whilst leaving you to enjoy your holiday

Thank you both and see you soon

“Highly Recommended Accommodation and Location”
Reviewed 22 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed in the two bedroom villa with my 87 year old mother. Spotlessly clean and exceptionally well equipped. The location is spectacular - olive trees, oranges, lemons, mulberries, pears, figs etc., etc.
Mike and Pirrko are lovely hosts and their property an oasis of calm. The swimming pool is a fantastic bonus, clean, warm and possible for my mother with restricted mobility to thoroughly enjoy. The fresh eggs, jams and olive oil from the Finca are an added treat. A car is needed - the roads are easy and not busy giving access to numerous beaches, restaurants etc., in Mojacar, San Juan and the Cabo de Gato.
