The middle terrace is an Olive grove and the Old Stables villa is on the lower terrace of the garden with it's own sunbeds bbq table and chairs.
Finca Arboleda is perfect for a quiet relaxing break and to help us achieve this for all guests we do not usually accept young children in the Villa or Apartment during the peak summer months, please ask about this.

The fenced garden with parking has more than 50 mature olive trees and 50 citrus and mixed fruit trees, so there is nearly always fresh fruit to pick like Apricots, Figs, Lemons, Pomegranates and Peaches. Imagine making juice from Oranges you’ve just picked or using our own Olive Oil and eggs.

Our little story...
Mick, Pirkko and Stig have lived here since January 2004 and have offered holiday accommodations since later that same year.
Pirkko is Swedish and Mick is English, we met in Stockholm in 1996 where Mick was working. We moved to the UK in 2002 and after a few months decided we wanted to make a complete lifestyle change with a bit of sunshine as an added bonus. Spain was the choice, we looked at areas from the Costa Blanca all the way to the Portuguese border but kept coming back to the Costa Almeria area and Vera in particular which was more rustic and less developed than the other Costas.
We had spent 18 months looking for a home that we could use as a holiday let and just when we started to think it wasn't going to happen we found Finca Arboleda. It was a beautiful sunny November day, a cloudless sky, the Mediterranean deep blue in the distance and trees loaded with Oranges, Pomegranates and Olives, after 9 months of hard work we were ready to go but have been making improvements ever since.
We hope you will enjoy staying here as much as we love living here.
Swimming pool is for the use of this Villa and our 1 bedroom apartment id 4733 which is for a maximum of 2 adults.
