Welcome to Finca Manolo, a sympathetically restored Andalucian farmhouse, which was originally our family home, and now offers personalized and individually decorated accommodation (sorry no IKEA here!) with the emphasis on comfort and relaxation.

The Finca offers plenty of outside space to relax and enjoy the stunning views, where mountains meet the sky and olive groves undulate as far as the eye can see!

Inside we have three double bedrooms, (2 with double beds and a twin with 2 singles), the white washed walls are chunky and help keep you cool in Summer and warm in Winter, original features including traditional wooden windows with shutters, beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and an original fireplace with chimney in the master bedroom. There are 2 shower rooms, one ensuite with twin basins off the dressing room. The cosy lounge has 3 leather sofas and woodburner, original cane and eucalyptus beamed ceiling. An intimate dining room leads to the fully equipped kitchen which overlooks, and has access to, the spacious pool area, with sunbeds and straw umbrellas, a covered dining area and outside kitchen with charcoal BBQ, outside sink and hob.

Steps provide access to a roof terrace with table and chairs, especially nice for taking a sundowner and watching the mountains turn pink at sunset, there is a further shaded dining area under the terrace and chill out corner with stone seating.

Finca Manolo has free wifi, TV, DVD player, dishwasher, private parking and a super king size pool (10m x 5m with roman end steps, mosaic dolphin, depth 1.5 to 1.85m so great for diving and jumping in) which one of our guests described as "so lovely to be big enough to float around in without bumping into the rest of the family"!

We are located 7.7km from the lovely pueblo blanco of Colmenar, (no dirt tracks)! the capital of the Montes de Malaga, here you can go shopping and practice speaking Spanish, the people are genuinely pleased to see you and you will soon feel like a local. There are several other pretty white villages to explore and the coast is 45 minutes away. We have a local family run Spanish campo cafe bar within walking distance and there are more places to dine out in the nearby villages.

So, to summarise; We have;


Away from it all,

LONG WINTER RENTAL FROM £700 per month plus electricity; 2nd time Winter visitor testimonial:

"We stayed at Finca Manolo for our second time, for 10 weeks, from December through to February and loved every minute of it. A home from home with everything we could ask for and more.

It's a real sun trap, beautifully positioned, up in the mountains with fantastic old charm throughout.

We enjoyed many BBQ evenings by the pool with the added bonus of an outside kitchen with the company of its two resident cats who are both adorable. We had an amazing time, lazing around and enjoying the peacefulness of the place. The village is very handy and you can get all amenities at very reasonable prices.

Great for couples wanting a romantic retreat or for families wanting to get away from it all but with the bonus of a beautiful pool (although not heated so quite cold in the deep mid winter!) and a hot spa that overlooks the mountains but also very private.

The owners are always extremely helpful with family on hand if needed.

We hope to come back again someday, we absolutely loved it there." Linda and Isaac, New Zealand.

The best of holidays at Finca Manolo!

By Various previous guests on 12-Jan-2022

Corrine October 2020 Within 5 mins of arriving at the finca we knew we would have a lovely stay. The finca was clean and very Spanish and well looked after. The kitchen facilities were great, bedrooms very comfortable and the whole place had a lovely feel to it, not like a usual holiday let. The pool and outdoor spaces were brilliant, areas for sun and shade and having the roof terrace was a plus to star gaze at night. All around there were stunning views and plenty of peace and quiet (altho we enjoyed the braying of donkeys in the valley!) Sue and Trevor were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Excellent hosts! We loved popping into Colemenar for supplies and coffee at Balens! It really is a heavenly place with many places to visit locally or beyond or simply chill by the pool and cook wonderful BBQ at the outside kitchen in the evening as the sun goes down! Definitely will go again! Response Ria March 2020 Ria rated this home 5/5 on 19. Mar 2020 This review is in Dutch Wat een verrassing was deze authentieke Finca toen wij daar aankwamen. Heel gezellig ingericht warm welkom met iets lekkers en een flesje wijn. Prachtig uitzicht leuke zitjes en mooi zwembad. We hadden het geluk dat we prachtig weer hadden en iedere morgen heerlijk buiten konden ontbijten. Zeker een aanrader om daar de vakantie door te brengen temeer omdat de weg er naar toe prima te rijden is. Martyn and Andrea July 2019 Martyn and Andrea rated this home 5/5 Returning again for the 5th time in 3 years to the wonderful properties offered by Sue, Trevor and family set in the beautiful countryside, in the mountains above Malaga with stunning views of Comares, I can certainly say we will be booking again. If you cherish peace and quiet for ultimate relaxation with outstanding facilities at the properties for all the family, which offer fantastic value for money, then this is the place to head for. Although you feel like the world can pass you by, and its so quiet you could hear a pin drop, you are just minutes away from the wonderful Spanish villages of Colmenar, Riogordo and Benamargosa whilst a short trip on deserted highways would take you to the Mediterranean highway, Velez Malaga, Nerja and beyond, to mention but a few. This is the perfect base to explore Andalucia and beyond, and only a short journey from Malaga and the airport. Sue, Trevor and family are the perfect hosts and the properties are maintained to the highest standard whilst maintaining the charm and allure of traditional Spanish culture. Long hot days in the sun, and alfresco dining on the barbecue are quenched with Rueda Verdejo, a dip in the crystal clear pool and always topped off with an hour in the hot tub in the evening. A meticulous file of information ensures you have all the local information to hand, however these wonderful hosts are only a phone call, text, or e-mail away, should you feel the need for any assistance. I feel like I have said too much (selfishly I would want to keep it a secret), as we cherish our time at the Finca, and will continue to book with our new friends in Spain for years to come hopefully :-) Thank you Sue, Trevor and family for the unspoiled wonderful times we have enjoyed at the Finca, and hope to see you again in the autumn. Martyn & Andrea Xxx Owner comment Dear Martyn and Andrea, thank you so much for your super review. It means a great deal to us to know that our home and its beautiful location provide so much genuine and simple pleasure. Its also good to know we have achieved our aim to provide a relaxing haven away from the usual stresses associated with every day life...... And of course, we look forward to welcoming you back for your 6th visit very soon! Our very best wishes Sue, Trevor and family xx Ian and Julie June 2019 Finca Manolo was a lovely place to stay in rural Spain. We went primarily for wildlife plus sun and relaxation, and we found everything we wanted. The farmhouse is typically Spanish, very comfortable, the pool is huge, the views from the many places to sit and relax were stunning. The local area has nice restaurants, there's a very friendly bar walking distance away, the white villages are beautiful, especially Comares. The nearby natural park is wonderful for walking. Sue and Trevor were lovely and on hand if we needed them. We will definitely be going back many times. Owner comment Dear Julie and Ian, Thank you both for your kind comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and that the house and location fulfilled the brief for a relaxing holiday - with plenty of wildlife. Hope you finally spotted the elusive cuckoo ! Trevor and I (and mum and dad) enjoyed meeting and spending time with you and we would like to thank you for being super guests, whom we hope we will see many more times - infact we are pleased to confirm your next stay has already been reserved and it will be a pleasure to see you again! With very Best wishes from all our family here - including Tibby :) xx Susanne October 2017 Susanne Brendstrup rated this home 5/5 on 24. Oct 2017 2 people found this review helpful. This review is in Danish Rigtig dejligt hus i et flot område. Lækker pool. Huset har alt hvad der er behov for og er rigtig hyggelig i finca stil. Vejen dertil er en lille bjergvej, så ingen højdeskræk. Julie July 2016 Julie and family rated this home 5/5 I cannot say enough about this property. Total seclusion in a beautiful setting. The Finca is full of beautiful items reflecting the real Spain and is literally home from home. We had an amazing week just sitting around in the sun and spending quality family time. The pool is fantastic as are all the little shaded areas if you get too hot. I've been twice now and I'm looking forward to my third visit already. Sue made sure we were settled and happy which made our stay even better. My kids are very picky and they loved this place. If you want a quiet relaxing holiday then visit Finca Manolo. Owner comment Dear Julie, Thank you so much for your lovely review. Its very nice to receive such positive comments and it means a great deal to us to know that you enjoyed your stay so much - and that you are already planning your next week of R and R at the Finca! Looking forward to having you back to stay! Best wishes x Sue and Trevor.
