About this property

Characterful, Stylish 'Finca' with Heated Pool & Mountain Views (Beach 25 mins)

Family-friendly agritourism property with water park and outdoor pool
Rustic, stylish finca with 3 bedrooms - 1 very large super king size with en-suite shower room, 1 twin bedroom, and 1 double with en-suite bathroom. Heated pool (gets to about 25 degrees from April onwards), very large terrace, landscaped gardens with stunning views. 10 mins drive from Competa where you'll find restaurants, bars, and shops. Beach 25 mins. 45 mins from airport. A fantastic base for a holiday at any time of year. Great for walking, cultural or beach holidays. Perfect for families, or groups of friends.

THE FINCA:
Finca Corral Noble is a beautifully restored, 200 year old Andalucian farmhouse full of rustic charm and character whilst also providing all the necessary modern amenities. It is 45 mins drive from the airport, easily approached down a short, well-maintained concrete drive and has private parking for several vehicles. The finca looks out onto a very large, secluded, walled courtyard boasting breathtaking panoramic views across The Almijara Sierra National Park. It has a covered jasmine and palm decked 'al fresco' dining area and an 8 x 4m heated pool. A natural canopy of shade is provided by a beautiful old carob tree believed to be as old as the finca itself. Inside and out the finca retains all its rustic charm including beamed ceilings, terracotta tiled floors and a wood-burning stove/fireplace. The thick whitewashed wall interior is beautifully cool and tastefully furnished in Andalucian style. A stroll around the extensive garden provides other shady sitting spots and viewing areas and a chance to harvest ripening fruit.

AREA:
The finca lies on the border of the Sierra Almijara National Park in a spectacular and rugged mountain setting. A self-catering holiday at the finca can combine a peaceful mountain holiday stay with a 25 minute access to the popular beach resort of Nerja.

Nerja is a bustling cosmopolitan resort with bars restaurants and night-life to match (if you want it). The magnificent city of Granada and the world famous Alhambra Palace is only 1 hour 20 mins drive away. Malaga is 1 hour away - a wonderful city with much to offer. Seville, Cordoba, Ronda are all also within reach. There is much to do and explore also in the immediate vicinity of the finca too.

Competa lies just 3 km away. It is a magnificent white mountain village (pueblo blanco) known as 'The Pearl of the Axarquia'. It clings to the mountain side just as the other smaller villages nearby. It is a 'real' Spanish village and has all your holiday requirements: including a good selection of shops (fresh fish every day), bars, restaurants, a health centre, and dentist. We recommend having a cafe con leche in the square and 'people watching'!

Many people visit the Axarquia to walk, and we can highly recommend this as walkers ourselves. From all day treks high up in the mountains, to short rambles suitable for all ages and abilities - there is something for everyone when it comes to walking in the area. In the finca you will find plenty of walking books and printouts that you are welcome to use.

SUMMARY:
A holiday at the finca is suitable for you if you like getting away from it all but still having options for the beach or cultural days out. It is a private and relaxing place for young and old alike. The terrace is a safe area - the pool is not gated however so do take care and always watch youngsters. You will love the secluded terrace with its comfortable wooden steamers and the 'al fresco' dining and proper Weber charcoal BBQ.

If you like old characterful houses furnished with style, ideally located, with a peaceful terrace offering fabulous mountain views... then Finca Corral Noble is for you!

5/5 Excellent

An excellent holiday at this beautiful finca!
We had a superb family holiday here and the finca was well worth the windy journey up into the mountains. The scenery is stunning and it was great to sit in garden and look out over the Spanish countryside. The finca was well equipped, beautifully and tastefully decorated and we especially liked the outside eating areas and pool which was just about warm enough in October! We plan to return next year!

Une charmante finca !
Nous avons passé 11 jours (du 14/08 au 25/08) dans cette charmante villa avec des amis. Ce fut 11 jours de vacances totales ! La finca est magnifique. Elle est dotée d'une superbe terrasse avec une magnifique vue et une grande piscine (vraiment très bien placée !), ombragée l'après-midi grâce à un grand eucalyptus. Cet eucalyptus dégage un magnifique parfum en fin d'après-midi ! La finca est située au bout d'une ruelle très tranquille, sans bruit malgré les quelques voisins. De plus, elle est sans vis-à-vis. Nous avons adoré rencontrer Nicole et son mari. ils habitent une magnifique villa dans la rue. Ils s'occupent de l'entretien de la propriété et sont vraiment très gentils. La villa a son propre parking privé (avec un portail) et est très bien agencée, elle a une très grande cuisine très bien équipée, un salon très reposant, trois belles chambres (dont deux équipées d'un wc et d'une salle de bain chacune - vraiment très pratique). Nous avons eu un peu de mal pour trouver notre finca : il manque énormément de panneaux indicateurs en Espagne (sauf sur l'autoroute!). Nous avons été obligés de demander notre chemin au patron d'un beau restaurant (El Pavo Real - on y mange pas mal !) situé à environ 1 km de la finca. Mais une fois que la villa a été trouvée, c'était génial ! De plus, elle est située à environ deux ou trois kms de Competa, où il y a tous les commerces nécessaires. Competa est une petite ville a visiter absolument. C'est une des villes aux maisons blanches les plus jolies d'Andalousie. Il faut absolument parcourir toutes les petites ruelles blanches qui partent de place, vous y trouverez des restaurants et des petits magasins vraiment sympathiques. Nous avons adoré le petit magasin de fabrique d'objets en cuir, situé sur la place Almijara (là où se trouve la magnifique église et son clocher). La vendeuse (et propriétaire du magasin avec son mari Espagnol) est française est vraiment très gentille. C'est son mari qui fabrique les objets en cuir. De plus, la finca est à environ 10 ou 12 km de Torrox, petite ville où il y a une belle plage (il faut environ 20 min pour y aller). Enfin, tout ça pour dire que nous pensons y retourner dès que nous pourrons !!! ce fut un régal de vacance ! Laurence et Alexandre (Aveyron - France)
