La Finca is located in 10 tranquil acres among orange and olive groves with stunning views of El Valle de Lecrin - only 30 minutes drive to the centre of Granada and the Alhambra, the picturesque "hanging" white villages of the Alpujarras or Costa Tropical National Park beaches and 45 minutes from the Sierra Nevada ski slopes. El Valle de Lecrin is an area of outstanding natural beauty. La Finca is surrounded by low-level walks, with wild fauna and flora literally on the doorstep. Activities at La Finca include Cookery classes and Tapas and Granada Wine Tasting - all of which are liberally interspersed with periods of relaxation by the pool, good food - even massages by our visiting masseur. There are many other activities available close to La Finca - details of which are on the website. Of course you can just retreat, relax and revive in the comfort of a hammock or by the pool soaking up the views. Contact Chris and Scarlett - who are very happy to help you make your holiday plans.

We spent a wonderfully relaxed week here. Scarlett and Chris were such welcoming hosts, generously sharing their beautiful house with us and other guests. Nothing was too much trouble, and their wealth of knowledge of the area made for interesting discussions in the evenings.

We had a very jolly and unusual day learning to make tapas and then having it for lunch which we enjoyed a lot. Our hosts were charming in their Finca which they built in the mountains 8 years ago. It's a high climb by car but worth it. Would go for longer next time.

Thank you for your kind words. It was a great pleasure to meet you all and I can only apologise once again for the weather! Most unusual and very unlucky. I hope the lunch went some way to make up for it - enough to encourage some of you back to visit us again! All the best S

One of many gardens at The Alhambra -- an incredible must see not far from La Finca.
One of the loveliest beaches nearby -- they have huge family beds for rent for siesta.
"Perfect cosy family room. Importante tip: Take the advise of Chris and scarlett on how to keep the rooms cool."
"Loved the hammock on the terrace"
"Room 4 has a separate bedroom, large sitting room with wood burner, good bathroom/wetroom. Own terrace."
"Number 2 has a bedroom and very large livingroom with a bed. We were with 2 adults and our 15 year old son, so this was perfect for us. "
"On your first visit arriving in Murchas you must follow Scarlett instructions."
