SPAIN 2024

31 August – 7 September, 2024

Finca el Cerrillo, Canillas de Albaida, Malaga, Spain

Finca el Cerrillo is a restored 200 year old farmhouse with fully air conditioned painting studio, situated high in the foothills of the Sierra Almijara region of southern Spain. It was a working olive mill until the mid 1960’s and has been carefully restored to preserve the charm and character of old Andalucia whilst providing modern comforts.

Finca el Cerrillo sits in peaceful country side only a 5 minute drive from the traditional mountain village of Canillas de Albaida. Canillas is a typical Moorish ‘white’ village 600 metres above sea level with a backdrop of mountains and the Mediterranean sea only 30 minutes drive away. Looking north from the Finca there are spectacular views of Mount Maroma (2080m) and the nearby Natural Park.

The Finca is peaceful but not remote, there are plenty of bars and restaurants in the local villages (Canillas is 5 minutes away by car) with many more in nearby Competa.

Accommodation is spacious and there are plenty of places to relax and enjoy the ambience. Outside, the terraced gardens with carob and palm trees surround both sunny and shaded patios. The swimming pool and deck areas have stunning views providing a pleasant place to swim or somewhere to relax on a comfortable lounger with a glass of wine or cold beer from the Honesty bar.
