The place is amazing; it’s so private with a fantastic range of facilities – everything from hammocks, to a BBQ, pool and Jungle bar. Everything is dotted around in a wood so it all feels very exclusive. It is a beautiful place and at night with all the lights on it really is magical.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this delightful property. We hiked in the hills, relaxed by the pool, and could not have asked for more. It was easy to travel to the village or down to the Coast. I would recommend this property.
Finca Los Pinos is in set in the beautiful hills of Competa in the Malaga province. With views for miles around, set on the edge of a national park it is the perfect place for exploring the Andalusian countryside. The buildings are spacious, very nicely decorated, clean and comfortable.
