The Experience

Bask beneath the palms, relax on the jasmine scented terraces. Crickets hum, birds sing, and lush gardens drop to a plant-filtered pool.

30 acres of olive and citrus groves make up this big relaxed finca, which is wonderful for a group. Inside the house, rooms are bright with tapestries, antiques and books, and a sense of airy comfort prevails. There’s air con in the bedrooms, en suite bathrooms, dining areas inside and out. There’s even a yoga studio in the grounds – ask Caroline about their group yoga retreats.

Almería is one of the driest, warmest regions in Europe, so pick a book from the library and soak up the glorious sunshine around the pool, even in the winter. It’s a 30-minute drive to the sandy beaches and coves of the Cabo de Gata for swims in crystal clear waters, such as on the Playa de los Genoveses. For watersports, head for pretty Agua Amarga.

Location

The neighbourhood

This is Clint Eastwood country, where the Wild West movies were made. Turning off the tarmacked road, there's a 300m gravel track to the finca. From your lush gardens you can see the Arabic watchtower of Níjar (2km), built at the foot of the mountains - and the sea beyond. You can buy pottery and textiles there in the village, as well as good artisanal bread, fish and meat. Supermarkets are 20 minutes away, Almería airport is 30.

Local points of interest from Caroline & Pierre De Cabarrus

  • The finca is home to 30 acres of palms, citrus and olive groves – taste the delicious organic olive oil we produce here. In the night time, what about about an evening astronomy walk/talk on a nearby beach? How lovely.
  • The studio is available on site for yoga groups – or you can also come for one of the retreats of either culture & cooking for groups of 8+ or yoga, plus trip to the beaches and local sites of interest.
  • We experience some of the warmest winters in Europe here – perfect for a longer stay in low-season. You can even go skiing in the Sierra Nevada - about a 2-hour drive.
  • The finca is near to the only undeveloped coastline in Spain – these beaches are far from the crowds, with wide unspoilt expanses of sand, here in the national park. Hire boats, discover the coves; explore the local village of Nijar - known for its crafts
  • Golf courses are nearby, as well as the unique theme park in Tabernas (The Oasys MiniHollywood) where iconic spaghetti westerns were filmed (think Clint Eastwood!). There are twice-daily live shoot-outs - great for the kids - plus a water park to cool off.
  • Almeria sees over 320 sunny days per year! And it’s home to Europe’s only desert, El Desierto de Tabernas. This amazing expanse of sand dunes and mountains is a 45-minute drive.

Introducing

Caroline & Pierre De Cabarrus

Caroline and Pierre came here 30 years ago, created the grounds, produced olive oil, and raised a family. They have four members of staff to maintain the grounds, house and pool – you may spot the housekeeper’s dogs very occasionally. Should you tire of cooking, they can recommend a vegetarian chef. Caroline lives mostly in the UK and Pierre is based on site but often away if the house is rented.
