There is an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue, where 8 people can eat outside at the big mosaic dinner table. We have a water tower and a small, picturesque square with a very old olive tree where you can sit in the shadow. The two other buildings few serve as storage space.
The whole area measures about 5.000 m2, and is planted with a lot of fruit trees: mango’s, grapes, oranges, mandarins, kumquats, olives and even an avocado tree! There is a steep path that runs from the orchard down to a small stream.
Driving from Vélez-Málaga towards Arenas and turning right onto our road downhill, you have a beautiful view over the valley, with the sea in the distance. At night you can see the lights of Vélez, Caleta and Arenas. The finca is completely detached and situated in a lovely quiet spot.
The house has thick walls, so it stays cool in summer and pleasant in winter. All of the rooms are provided with ceiling ventilators; the air conditioning gives cool and warm air, and you can burn the wood burner stove when it gets a bit colder during the evenings (usually not until November/December).
All windows are equipped with insect screens and bamboo roller blinds. We have Satellite TV with a huge amount of channels and of course well working WIFI.
