“The perfect venue for a 'Living Yoga Holiday'!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We are a yoga holiday business based in the UK and having stayed at the Almond House in February to check that it was going to be right for our group we certainly weren't disappointed! Everything was exceptional, from the day we arrived with the warmest of welcomes from our hosts, Paul, Jules and Claire to the day of departure when we certainly didn't want to leave this Andalucian oasis! Some of the group stayed in the lovely 'cassita' the cottage next to the main house - they loved it! The beautiful rooms were all tastefully decorated with super comfortable beds with the back entrance leading to a covered seating area where you could sit with a book when the sun became too much! From here it led to our yoga studio for the week. A beautiful purpose built yoga (or fitness) space with the most amazing acoustics for our chanting sessions in the morning! We had 2 yoga classes a day as well as workshops.
Some of us stayed in the main house - again so beautifully decorated, this is where we had our meals, breakfast and lunch outside the front of the house and dinner in the dining room. The meals were exceptional, top class restaurants couldn't have done better!
Our afternoons were spent lazily by the pool or having a massage with Christina, our wonderful therapist! We indulged in aromatherapy, swedish massage, indian head massage, reiki, the list goes on!
On our day out to the Alhambra and Granada (about 2 hours drive away) Jules and Claire put together a picnic feast! We indulged on Spanish tortilla, Russian salad, pasta salads (gluten free for the gluten intolerant), quinoa salads, fruit...we certainly weren't hungry by the time we finished!
We can highly recommend this place not only for other yoga teachers and their groups but also for regular travellers who simply want a break away from the hustle and bustle of life to be looked and cared after as if part of the Almond House family!
Thank you Paul, Jules and Claire for a magical stay. We will definitely be back be next year. Please book us in for the same week!

“Thank you for a fabulous week where the warm welcome matched the professional service and attention to detail.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Paul and Jules were amazing hosts. Their attention to detail was impressive but balanced by a respect for privacy. The welcome was warm and matched the professional catering. The taster training session I have with Paul was inspiring and left me wishing I had another week for this. The location is magical, the stars were beautiful and atmosphere renewing.

I had a fabulous time, thank you.

“Accommodation, food, service, amenities - all of the highest standard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

What a superb location for a holiday. Beautifully restored spanish property with an idyllic setting. The bedrooms were of a very high standard with lovely bathroom facilities.
Every room tastefully decorated but homely and inviting. The couple running this facility could not do enough for us with every whim catered for.......food allergies, dislikes likes etc. Fresh water and delicious picnic put in the car for our day out to Grenada.
The standard of meals was exceptional. Jules Ross who owns the property with her husband is a great cook and took every care to make meal times special.
Pool beautifully laid out with plants and shade everywhere.
Lovely fitness studio...all fresh wood and french doors. Can't recommend this one highly enough.

“What a Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013 for a stay in September 2012

It is hard to describe how lovely your holiday will be at the Almond House, this peaceful, tranquil home from home is relaxing, calming and comforting. The food that Julie cooks is devine (We are very greedy eaters and were begging for mercy on more than one occasion) What did we do? we lay around the huge pool most mornings, dipping in and out to cool off, then relaxed in the gazebo when the sun got too hot. In the afternoons I was treated to a wonderful massage from Julie while my husband went off on a tour of the area on a Quad bike with Paul, (boy heaven). Paul also offers personal training for anyone up for it, using an amazing array of outdoor facilities, but we were too busy just having fun and relaxing. We managed to drag ourselves away one day for a trip to the beach which took us about 45 minutes, but we couldnt wait to get back. The farmhouse is just lovely. Well equipped for a comfortable stay, when we arrived, the fridge had everything in we needed to get started on the holiday and the shops are a mere car ride away. We could not believe how cheap food and booze is in this part of Spain! Want a relaxing holiday without spending a fortune? this is the place to be. Want to make friends with two lovely, young people who obviously put their heart and soul into their business? this is the place to be. We have been twice and are watching flights now to go back again this year. Can't wait.

“Outstanding, a little piece of heaven.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013 for a stay in August 2012

I was reluctant to write this review initially as sometimes you just don't want to share something this good. When we arrived at Almond House everything exceeded our expectations. Paul and Jules, the owners are people that just have that artistic flair and their attention to detail is amazing. The welcome groceries were delicious and like everything well thought out. The accomodation was very relaxing, with everything you would expect. The pool was fantastic. Everything was spotless. The first time we visited in 2011, my sister's family were renting nearby, they came to visit us and loved the place too. We've visited twice and can't wait to return.
