It would be rude not to.

Summer is made for a refreshing G&T, well any time of the year is really. We have a local gin that is made in Turre, Portomagno and of course all of your favourites are available locally. A choice of tonics is also very important.

There may be one thing that you can only find at Finca Arboleda and that is our wonderful organic lemons. 

So book your flight. Book a stay at Finca Arboleda. Pick up some Gin,Tonic and ice in the supermarket and help yourself to a perfect lemon.

What are you waiting for?

Of course some people just enjoy fresh lemon squeezed into water in the morning, each to their own!

Due to a couple of cancellations the Orange Grove has availability during the next 6 weeks or so.

May to June is one of the best times to holiday in this region before the really high temperatures kick in in July and August.

The Orange Grove sleeps 2 people comfortably and is very well equipped with UK tv, wifi, bbq and beautiful views of the garden and fantastic salt swimming pool, very healthy with no nasty chemicals and only as salty as a tear.

Visit for more details, send us a mail or a WhatsApp and we will get back to you immediately, if not sooner.

La Vuelta 2018

Just returned from a peaceful and relaxing two weeks stay at the Old Stables.

holiday beach

Just returned from a peaceful and relaxing two weeks stay at the Old Stables. We would like to thank Mick and Pirkko very much for their great attention to detail in preparing and equipping the villa with everything you need for an easy stay. In particular providing beach towels (saves on luggage weight), shopping bags, having a reliable internet and UK TV (life saver for the World Cup!) are all nice touches. Combined with the tranquillity of the gardens and pool area, we really enjoyed our time here, the villa is clean, comfortable and as regular renters in Spain, lacking nothing in our opinion. Having fresh hen’s eggs and home produced Olive Oil are also nice bonuses. Although we chose to stay in the Stables, having viewed the Orange Grove during our stay, we would recommend either place for quality and attention to detail.
Mick and Pirkko are always available for local advice, information and general chat, especially for football banter!
If you are planning a trip to this area, just book here, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. There are many places of interest within a one hour drive, superb beaches and lots of quality restaurants in surrounding towns and villages. We will definitely return to book either property when next in this area.
Thanks again to you both for a wonderful stay! C&L Manchester. 2/7/2018

Important. Ryanair Check In News.

Budget airline Ryanair is reducing its free check-in window from four days before flights to just two days from Wednesday 13 June.

Customers who don’t pay to reserve a seat will only be able to check in online from 48 hours to two hours predeparture – and if you don’t check in during this window, you’ll be charged a hefty £55-per-person fee to do so at the airport.

But if you do buy a seat reservation, which costs from £4 upwards, you’ll be able to check in from 60 days before departure.

The change applies to ALL flights from 13 June – both new bookings and existing reservations.
