Interaction with guests
Let our guest describe our interaction philosophy:

"We were worried, being of a somewhat antisocial disposition that John and Maya (accurately described in other reviews as the perfect owners for whom nothing was too much trouble) would be too much present but they got it exactly right and had the knack of being there when needed and not otherwise"

The location is just a few minutes from the lovely rural village of Lubrin so you have the benefit of being surrounded by countryside yet within easy walking distance of the small shops, bars and restaurant. Having seen the accommodation described as "rustic", I...

About the neighbourhood
Cortijo Fuente Arriba offers peace and tranquility, yet Lubrin village is just a short 5 minute walk and has all the amenities you could wish for including wine or beer & tapas for 2 Euros and a 3 course Menu of the Day for just10 Euros. The villagers are truly welcoming and you are assured of a cultural and gastronomic experience of an authentic, whitewashed Andalucian pueblo. Self guided walking and cycling from outside the main entrance into surrounding hills and ending in village for beer or wine and tapas.
Getting around
Lubrin is conveniently located for exploring Almeria with its diverse and dramatic landscapes, isolated villages and romantic beaches and coves. The Cabo de Gata National Terrestrial and Maritime Park is magical and many guests take the day trip to Granada to marvel at the wonderful Alhambra. or a local visit to our very own Moorish Alcazaba Fortress in Almeria city

How to get there
Airport: Almeria Airport: 70.0 km
Railway: Almeria City: 70.0 km
Ferry: Almeria City: 70.0 km
Almeria is the nearest airport but has very limited flights, especially from October to May. Alicante and Murcia airports offer many more flights and better prices. From Alicante it is a 2 hour drive on relatively quiet (compared to UK) motorway for 90 minutes. Then a 30 minute drive up a well paved mountain road. If you are a bit nervous of driving in Spain then fly into Murcia and there is a tolled road with hardly any traffic.
