A relaxing, peaceful and comfortable stay in a very well equipped property among the olive groves. Totally private but only 5 minutes away from local amenities. Michael and Pirkka were perfect hosts and having visited self catering properties all over the world his rated very high on the scale. We will not hesitate to return. A perfect way to spend Christmas.
There was everything we needed on the premises including excellent wifi reception. It was not really warm enough to sit outside however for extended walks the weather was comfortable and sunny. With the shorter length of daylight there was plenty of time to catch up on reading.
We stayed in The Old Stables for two weeks & had an amazing time. Beautiful pool area, gorgeous design one of them I have seen & unique. The accommodation was great, very clean with everything you needed including a BBQ, your own sun beds, table & chairs with a much needed large umbrella.
It was lovely to be able to pick oranges to juice & lemons got G& T's!! Also we had eggs from the chickens which you can feed & the olive oil that is produced from the accommodations own olive groves.
Ideally located for Vera, 15 minutes from the beach & if you want somewhere livelier 25 minutes to Mojacar, if like us you want peace & quiet you are in easy reach of a number of villages in the mountains such as Bedar. Also you are in easy reach of two great golf courses 10 & 15 minutes away.
Mick & Pirrko are great hosts & huge fun! Lots of great recommendations & help.
We will return!
We stayed in The Old Stables last week and had a very relaxed and peaceful time. The accommodation was well equipped, with good wifi connectivity and the large pool by the main house was great. The hosts were helpful and friendly - on hand when needed but otherwise unobtrusive - and hopefully pleased by the FA Cup result on Sunday. This was our first stay but it won't be our last
We first stayed at Finca Arboleda in 2006 and have been coming back here ever since. As we now live in Madrid, on this occasion I wanted to see if I could use The Old Stables as a base during a week of business meetings in Murcia and Almeria. It proved to be the perfect base with every comfort, excellent wifi, TV etc and the usual warm welcome from Mike and Pirkko. Whether for business or pleasure I would recommend Finca Arboleda to anyone coming to this part of Spain which remains a still little known treasure with the most fabulous year round weather. Granada is just 2 hours away and I especially love the Cabo de Gata.
