Colmenar, Province of Malaga, Andalucia
Absolutely gorgeous 350 year old Spanish farmhouse set in 37 hectares of almond and olive groves and wilderness which is part of the Montes de Malaga National Park. This eco-friendly farm also has its own vineyard (Shiraz grapes mainly) and is totally organic.
If you are looking for something totally authentic and yet close to major cities like Granada, Cordoba and Malaga, this is your place! It has a warm, cosy, homely feel and is set amongst breathtaking countryside. It has a salt water swimming pool and beautiful, fully-restored bedrooms and is full of atmosphere and charm.
