  • Winter sun in the magical setting of the Finca el Cerrillo situated high in the foothills of the Sierra Almijara in Andalucia, north of Nerja and an hour from the bustling, historical city of Malaga.
  • Relaxed and informal with excellent, locally sourced food and wine
  • Twelve individually styled, spacious bedrooms each with modern en suite bathrooms, air conditioning and central heating.
