“The most relaxing holiday I've ever had!”

Finca Felix is a hidden delight! The villa itself is beautifully furnished & the gardens are a tropical delight!!
I holidayed for 10 days with a friend, both of us having an 8 year old child, one boy, one girl. The kids ADORED it from the start, spending hour upon hour in the gorgeous pool, allowing us adults to simply relax in the sunshine. The children made friends with the cats, Hector & Clifford & delighted in looking for eggs from the very obliging chickens, not to mention the thrill of seeing the turtles that reside in the fountain!
A fabulous escape, where we were able to completely unwind, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, knowing the children were very happy & safe.
Kim & Mark are a delight to behold! Fabulous hosts, bringing the perfect level of privacy & yet a stones throw should we need them! Will I go back?? Try & stop me!! XX

My husband and I stayed for two weeks at Finca Fenix and were joined for part of the holiday by our son and his partner. The weather was very hot but the pool and beautiful gardens provided the perfect place to relax and enjoy the peace. The villa is very well equipped, especially the kitchen, enabling us to enjoy BBQs when we couldn't be bothered to venture out to eat.Mark and Kim were wonderful hosts, providing the perfect balance of friendliness and giving us privacy. The two weeks went really fast. We would love to visit again when the weather isn't too hot so we can do more exploring of the area.

“Just as advertised! Beautiful”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Thank you for such a lovely stay, it was to short, even for a couple that normally do activity holidays

A lovely apartment, refurbished to a high standard with lots of traditional character and everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

A stunning private garden with swimming pool and sun beds by day, and a hot tub for the evenings, which we found difficult to leave, even to go out for dinner. There is a very nice restaurant within walking distance.

The Lakes and hills are beautiful an really worth the very pretty drive.

You get what it says on the tin!

Good luck with the rest of the project.

Hi guys and thanks for your smashing review. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. We are expecting a cash injection in the coming months that should enable us to complete most if not all of the projects on the top terraces and new apartment. That should keep us out of trouble and busy over the winter months :) Take care Mark & Kim

“what a fabulous relaxing place and brilliant hosts!”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Finca Fenix ticked all the boxes. Mark and Kim are superb hosts. The Finca is beautiful, the gardens are a work in progress, but fantastic as it is already. We cant wait to go back to see how things have progressed (the chickens were the most recent addition!) .Attention to detail was second to none. Alora is a lovely Spanish village.......small bars and restaurants. WE LOVED IT.

“An amazing and wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Dear Mark and Kim,
Thank you both so much for your hospitality! Finca Fenix is a wonderful and amazing place to stay. And it's worth to visit again. You have to know that we never go back to an earlier holiday-adress, but your place is an exception, so ... maybe you will see us back in the future!
Thanks again and we wish you all the best, in Alora and in England.
xxx, bye, bye

Not only was this a great place to stay,both Mark and Kim were fantastic hosts.Nothing was too much trouble for them and we really enjoyed their hospitality and company.The Finca has a truly rustic feel and the gardens/pool are a fabulous place to relax.
You can drop the car at the top of the track and easily walk into the town to enjoy the very reasonably priced food and wine.Mark will happily advise on the best places to visit,both locally and afar if you can take yourself away from the Finca.
A great 7 days,just a pity we couldn't make it two weeks...but watch out we shall be back !!
Big thanks to both of you for an absolutely awesome week.

We are smiling from ear to ear as we are going through looking at reviews. We are tired after putting up the first photo voltaic panels and will see tomorrow if they can run a cement mixer. If so we start on the new pond up on the top terrace and now have a acquired a red marble fountain to go at the end. Hope the day dream house will be up in time for your return visit. Great weekend and hugs to all.
