Reviews 2010


“Our family embraced three generations. The accommodation was ideal for our group. There was plenty of space and privacy for everybody, while still sharing the same large house. The several outdoor sitting areas lent themselves towards leisurely meals al fresco.

For the more active, the large swimming pool (within its own enclosed compound) was always immaculately clean and had spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.

Spanish atmosphere and perfect comfort – made this comfortable and charming farmhouse our own during a trembling hot week in July 2010.

For the adults cooking good food and having long late dinners are important – el Almendrillo made it possible since there are three good kitchens. We used one kitchen as the breakfast kitchen and the two others for our big lunches and dinners. Every night we chose a new spot and a new atmosphere for our dinner – intimacy on the courtyard, magnificence on the front terrace or the closeness to the stars and the moon on the upper terrace.

“I had dreamed of celebrating my 60th birthday with a gathering of my family in a truly Spanish courtyard under the blue Andalucian sky and El Almendrillo provided everything I could have wished.”

“Our holiday at Almendrillo was fantastic, truly one of the best holidays I and my friends have ever had. Nothing prepared us for the stunning beauty of the farmhouse and its location – perched on the side of a hill, overlooking miles upon miles of olive groves…If you want peace – but not boredom, if you want to have fun with your friends – but not be on top of one another, if you want to spend hours by a huge swimming pool, if you want to hear your kids reading to one another perched in a massive Spanish oak tree, if you want to visit a Flamenco shop or eat great tapas in Malaga at the drop of a hat or visit the Alhambra on a morning’s excursion or if you simply want to wake up early and watch a group of swallows on the move not five feet away from you… then you are in the right place. At the end of the day, this is what life is all about. It simply doesn’t get any better than this.”

“I can’t recommend Almendrillo enough.. it’s a fantastic set up, and was ideal for our group of 17…the sheer size of the villa, and all the terraces, lounges, taken with its relative seclusion, make it perfect for big groups like ours. An unforgettable week.”

“All our expectations were fullfilled!”
