Sunsets and relaxation
By Richard A. on 20-Oct-2019
Whilst set in an amazing location, the interior could benefit from some TLC. Bulbs had blown, two sun loungers were cracked and unusable and cutlery was tatty. That said we spent all our time outdoors, perhaps if you were inside more the lack of decent lighting would be an issue. It was peaceful and quiet except for the sheep rush hour twice a day. The only main negative during our stay was when a group of cars appeared with an estate agent unannounced to view the property on our last day.
Lovely hillside retreat
By Adrian M. on 30-Jul-2019
Getting to the property is easy enough, it's roughly about an hours drive from Malaga airport and if you use Google Maps for navigation it will take you all the way to the end of the road.
The nearest supermarket can be found in the local town of Alora which is a good 15 minutes drive, there is one big Mercadona supermarket which stocks pretty much everything you will need - the whole supermarket is underground (including the car park) so dont worry if you cant see it on Street View!
The property itself is set back from the road in a small development of 5 properties at the top of a track which itself had been recently partially resurfaced, however we found it to be quite loose under the cars wheels - approaching it at speed seemed to the best method. The property is not overlooked and there are no properties above it, there is one off to one side however you cant see it from the finca, if you stand at the edge of the pool you can look down and see the properties lower down on the hillside, the 2 nearest below seemed to have no one in them for the duration of our stay.
Overall we had a nice, relaxing stay, the views across the landscape towards the town of Alora and over to El Chorro was very scenic with sunsets to die for, generally the property is adequately provisioned, the outdoor cooking area and eating area were particularly nice and the pool was a real savior in the heat. The local contact who was there to help if any problems come up and to look after the pool was friendly and responsive.
If you want a easy to get to, quite, relaxing spot to unwind and dont mind a bit of a drive to get any supplies then this could be just the job!. We will definitely consider staying again.
Fantastic holiday in a perfect setting.
By Caroline F. on 27-Jun-2019
We have just come back from a perfect two week holiday at Finca Miel, it is in a perfect location for peace and tranquillity but within a fifteen minute drive into Alora which has everything you would need to get you through your holiday. It is a traditional Spanish Finca, the villa has everything you need to make your holiday. The views and sunsets are to die for you could not wish for a better setting. I just want to thank Karen for all her help with the booking and any questions we had, she also sent us such helpful information before we travelled regarding directions and things we would need to know when we got there. We also met Pablo who is a lovely man and although a language barrier we found that sign language and laughter got us through any questions we had. I can honestly recommend this accommodation and location to anyone who would love the peace and quiet as all you hear are the birds and the goats bells. Once again thank you Karen for your hospitality it was fantastic Caz and Mark
Charming Finca with a view!
By Sue B. on 01-Mar-2019
A traditional Finca in a beautiful setting. Very peaceful, giving every opportunity to totally relax. The view is like a picture postcard, with the added bonus of beautiful sunsets and stunning views of the stars.
The track up the hill to get to this location is quite daunting the first time. However if you follow the instructions provided in the directions it quickly becomes less of a concern. It is a good 15 minute drive to get to Alora and the supermarket.
Staying in February it did become cold as soon as the sun set but we bought logs from the petrol station and built a real fire each evening which was very cosy. There was also a portable gas fire available if required.
We did cook at the Finca most days making use of the BBQ as well as the kitchen. There was plenty of kitchen equipment, crockery and cutlery to facilitate this. There are however not any basic condiments left for general use. The bed was comfortable with electric blankets available if required. There is also a lovely pool available but it wasnt warm enough in February for us to use. Internet connection was great considering we were in such a rural location.
There were some things that were not up to scratch, but they did not detract from our enjoyment of the Finca. We were a last minute booking and so that may have been the reason for this.
The shower head in the main bathroom needs replacement as it causes a flood in the bathroom each time you shower. The shower curtain is mouldy. Neither the BBQ or oven had been cleaned since the previous occupant. There were a couple of under cupboard lights not working in the kitchen with no replacement bulbs. The washing machine door handle was broken making it difficult to open and the drum appears loose causing major vibration whilst on the spin cycle. Instructions for the TV in the house manual are out of date. And UK TV channels are not available and will not be until a new receiver for the satellite is purchased.
These were only small annoyances and so were not reported during our stay. ( Apart from the UK TV as we had really wanted to watch the Six Nations) but should be resolved to improve the experience of the next guests.
All communication/responses from the host and the guy who manages the property were quick and helpful.
I would definitely recommend Finca Miel if you are looking for a peaceful, get away from it all beak. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Peaceful and relaxing stay amongst stunning scenery
By Iain C. on 02-Jul-2018
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Finca Miel. Set in the hills close to Alora the house and pool face to the west allowing you to enjoy long days relaxing in the sun, or taking trips around the surrounding area - definitely recommend the walking the Caminito del Rey (sensible to book ahead on-line). Finca Miel has everything you need, including a BBQ. It is well kept and the pool is perfect. Watching the sun set over the hills above El Chorro each night was a real highlight.
Like in heaven :-)
By Andrea K. on 24-Oct-2017
We had a wonderful four day stay at Finca Miel; the loction is unbeatable, the sunsets wonderful, the house just what you need, nice beds, great kitchen, room size is perfect. We traveled with a nine year old - and she loved it and we relaxed. We hope for another Time-out there soon. And for those fearing to be too remote; don't worry you reach all interesting places within no time, thanks Karen, Andrea

The house is a perfect place to stay. The descrition of the house is completely accurate and facilities are very good. The house is really comfortable and it has marvellous views.
The owner provided us all the information needed. I would recommend this house to everyone willing to enjoy the countryside.
By Hilary P. on 08-Feb-2017
We arrived late at night in the dark and awoke the next morning to the stunning views. What an amazing position. It is only a short drive inland from the coast but a totally different world - a taste of real Spain.
January, and in the all too short 3 days we were there the temperature reached 18 degrees and glorious sunshine.
The finca is beautifully rustic (love all the terracotta dishes and pots) and not overlooked by any other property. It has plenty of room, very comfortable beds and everything you need. Internet access was very good, but do yourselves a favour and turn off all of your technology and just soak up the peaceful and relaxing surroundings.
We met our daughter who is staying nearby in El Chorro and she took us on a few walks in the mountain forests and lakes nearby. We had a meal in a restaurant high up overlooking a lake. It was warm enough to eat on the outside terrace. Absolutely amazing scenery.
The owner Karen responded very quickly to our emails and sent us very useful information on the property with detailed directions to the finca from the airport.
We would definitely stay here again but next time for longer.
April Holiday in Alora
By Philippa B. on 16-Apr-2016
Beautiful villa in a fabulous location. Alora is a beautiful village with plenty of bars and restaurants. Accommodation was well equipped, the 2 bathrooms were a godsend. Everything was very clean and well set out. The weather was fine with only one rainy afternoon but there was always a breeze blowing, the pool was lovely but too cold for me - the teenagers did manage to get in on one occasion. Internet access was brilliant, TV, DVDs and games also very handy in the evening.
We tended to eat out in the day and just have a simple supper or barbecue in the evenings so that we didn't have to drive up the access track at night. .
Excellent holiday - would definitely return - I think in Summer perhaps to make more use of the pool and loungers. Lots of things to do in the area and it was also very scenic with all the orange and lemon trees and olive groves.
