What are your check-in and check-out times?
Although we'll always try and fit in with your travel arrangements, we can't guarantee that your studio will be available before 3pm on the day of your arrival. Checkout is by 12 noon on the day of your departure.
Should I hire a car?
Yes – it is easier than trying to reach us by public transport, and you'll also be able to visit nearby beaches, cultural sites, shops and restaurants during your stay. Malaga airport is served by all the major car rental companies, and www.holidayautos.co.uk often have good deals.
You can download a map and directions here, and you should rely on this and our signposts rather than your sat-nav. We have plenty of space for parking.
If you don't drive, we can usually arrange a pick-up from Malaga airport or Torre del Mar bus station, but please check with us before booking your flights.
How far is the nearest supermarket / beach?
The nearest large supermarkets are just as you leave the A7 motorway at Velez-Malaga, and we suggest you call in there on your way from the airport.
There are beautiful beaches all along the coast. The closest gay / naturist beach is Almayate just beyond Velez-Malaga / Torre del Mar (about 30 minutes away), although we prefer Cantarrijan which is a little bit further away, just beyond Nerja.
Can I access the internet?
Yes - we have fast, free WiFi broadband available throughout the house and surrounding terraces – just ask us for the access code to log on from your laptop or smartphone.
Do the studios have heating / air-conditioning?
All the studios have low-energy electric heaters for the cooler months, and fans for the summer. Our altitude (420m) together with the Finca's thick stone walls help maintain a pleasant, even temperature in the studios without the need for air-conditioning.
Do you serve food?
All the studios are fully equipped for self-catering, and stocked with a basic welcome pack. If you are arriving late or prefer not to stop at the shops, you can also order a provision hamper containing enough for a light supper and breakfast – please enquire for details.
Two or three times a week we offer simple 'family-style' dinners, using fresh local produce and regional wines, and these are a great opportunity to get to know other guests.
We also have an honesty bar stocked with wine, beer, soft drinks, ice cream, and other snacks.
What exactly do you provide in the 'welcome pack'?
When you arrive, your studio will contain the following:
Can I do laundry?
Yes – if you're travelling light you can put a load in the washing machine for a small charge. There is plenty of space to hang things out to dry, and an iron and ironing board is available to borrow.
Can I bring my dog?
Sorry – we can't accept pets.
Can I swim / sunbathe naked?
Yes – our pool, jacuzzi, surrounding sun terraces and sauna are all clothing optional.
Can I pay by credit card?
Sorry - we don't have a credit card facility, but can accept card payments in advance via Paypal.
What if I have to change my plans?
Although we will always try to accommodate changes, this will depend on availability.
