About Us

In October 2010 Mark and Tom left their busy professional lives in central London to take over and transform Finca la Maroma. We now live in this spectacular location with our rescue dog Homer and aim to make your stay with us unforgettably comfortable and relaxing.

Finca la Maroma is located 5kms from the small village of Sedella, one of the beautiful pueblos blancos in rural Andalucia that can trace their heritage back to moorish times. This relatively undiscovered area, known as the Axarquia, is only 50 minutes from Malaga and yet remains one of Spain's best kept secrets. More recently, this quiet region of Andalucia has become popular with gay travellers, tired of the traditional gay resorts like Gran Canaria and Sitges, who appreciate the serenity and relaxation, unrivalled beauty, wonderful local cuisine, and the bohemian vibe offered by the area.

Because we are located in one the most southern parts of the Spanish Mediterranean coast, our gay hotel enjoys over 320 days of sunshine a year, and our season lasts much longer than many other European gay resorts. That means you can enjoy nine months of guaranteed summer weather at Finca La Maroma.
Our self-catering apartments are pristine and spacious, and offer modern comfort and luxury in a traditional Mediterranean style. Located in the main house, the studios all give onto private and shared terraces and gardens, so you can enjoy your morning coffee admiring the spectacular views surrounded by lavender, jasmine, rosemary, and thyme. Need to connect with the outside world? Finca la Maroma offers super fast free wi-fi broadband, accessible from your apartment or terrace.

For gay travellers on the go, Finca la Maroma offers unlimited options. We are located on the edge of the Sierra Tejeda-Almijara national park, making the area a hikers paradise. We can help you plan a custom itinerary of nearby walks, from easy to challenging, but all stunning and unique. For the more active, we have mountain bikes available for a dizzying ride on the mountain 'caminos'. If culture is your thing, you will find Finca la Maroma a perfect base for discovering not only the more popular destinations like Granada, Cordoba, Antequera, and the glorious white villages of Frigiliana, Canillas de Albaida and Sedella, but also some the lesser known historical gems and sights nearby.

If you are heading for the coast for the day, we can advise you on the numerous beaches nearby, many of which are gay or naturist and less than 30 minutes away. One the more popular options with our guests is simply doing nothing, relaxing by our pool, enjoying a chilled glass of vino rosado from our well stocked honesty bar, or exploring the many secluded and private spots on the estate.
