Sleeps 12-14. Slow the pulse of life in a home designed for connoisseurs of peace where Moorish grace is happily married to English style.

The architect won a prize for the design of the house which is split level on the side of a hill.

We needed an away-from-it all break and this villa in Nijar, Almeria province, suited our extended family of 11 perfectly.

Travelling as a large group is always fraught with issues; you end up paying over the odds for extremely average properties. However, Finca Del Alamo is a veritable haven for the price.
