Have you ever thought about how you would like to be received in an Andalusian finca? This is the question that those who bought this property asked themselves 20 years ago. And that is how they transformed it into what it is now: an oasis to relax, connect with nature and be inspired to paint or write.

Located next to the Sierra de Almijara and in the midst of charming white villages, this farm worked as an olive oil mill until the mid ‘60s. Although it no longer fulfils this function, the traces of its origin, some 200 years ago, are still latent.

During the restoration work, the current owner earned the nickname of "Mr. Rustic", as he took care to ensure that the original features of the building were maintained. Thus, for example, ceilings, beams and stone walls have been preserved, showing that this place has been an authentic oil mill.

From the entrance to this finca turned into a hotel, one crosses a terrace with multiple spaces for relaxation. The vegetation offers enough shade, inviting you to enjoy the incredible views.

Right here, an imposing 200-year-old carob tree continues to bear witness to the passage of time. It provides shade and shelter for moments of rest and reading in complete silence or in the company of the soft chirping of birds.

Upon entering the interior you will find the corresponding reception room. From there it connects to a living room with a fireplace and a reading area with a large library. An honesty bar invites you to serve yourself your favourite drink. The next living room offers a large space with armchairs in front of a fireplace and tables where the main meals are served.

On this level you will also find the industrial kitchen, fully equipped to provide an excellent gastronomic service.

On the upper floor there is a large and comfortable space (± 11×8m) where multiple group activities are held: painting workshops, writing workshops or yoga classes.

The 14 en-suite bedrooms maintain the rustic character without neglecting comfort. In all of them you can enjoy a well-deserved rest after a hike in the nature reserve, for example.

The original construction has been adapted to the needs of a hotel and new rooms have been built, but always maintaining the Andalusian style. All rooms have air conditioning, heating and underfloor heating.

The outdoor space offers endless corners for relaxation and contemplation. The swimming pool allows you to cool off during the summer months while enjoying the beautiful views. A pergola in the middle of the outdoor gardens is another space available for small concerts, dance shows, workshops and/or yoga classes.

Everything is designed around enjoying creative and artistic proposals, in harmony with nature. Walking, reading, painting, writing… while receiving the friendly attention of a loyal team of collaborators.

At present, there are about 200 olive trees that surround the property and confirm the character of the Axarquia. An area par excellence for the cultivation and production of the best extra virgin olive oil.

Walking among these olive trees or sitting in its typical Andalusian patio are other ways to honour this carefully preserved place that provides a haven of well-being. Some guests have been returning every year for the past 20 years. This speaks of the human quality, the services offered and the good name of this place.

It is worth mentioning that this finca hotel has a fully equipped independent apartment that serves as a residence for the owners.

If you are a lover of art, outdoor walks, reading and contemplation, this corner of the Axarquia awaits you with a property where you can feel at ease in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

This finca hotel is an operating business with a track record of 20 years. The annual turnover is approximately €600,000 with a net profit of approximately €200,000. It is a successful business with great potential that can be continued as it was conceived by the current owners. It has a tourist licence granted by the Consejería de Turismo de la Junta de Andalucía (Andalusian Regional Ministry of Tourism), which ensures that it meets the necessary requirements to offer quality services and safety.

If you are interested in obtaining more information about this tourist venture located in the Axarquia, I will be happy to advise you.
