About us



The epitome of tranquil Spain, Finca Gran Cerros nestles into the Andalusian hillside just a few minutes’ drive from the traditional ‘white village’ of Álora.  Our retreat is within easy reach of Málaga airport and some of the most spectacular scenery that rural Spain has to offer.

Known as ‘The Lake District of Spain’, the lakes at El Chorro, Ardales National Park, and the Caminito Del Ray are all on the doorstep.  There is plenty to explore!

Although with stunning views from our terraced gardens and pool, you may prefer to simply relax and enjoy the tranquility!

Our traditional Andalusian farmhouse and grounds offers just three beautifully restored private apartment suites and studios.  Each accommodation has a private bathroom, kitchenette and private outside space overlooking the beautiful valley below.

The lush terraced gardens, large 6m x 12m swimming pool and separate jacuzzi, as well as a traditional Andalusian outdoor summer kitchen, BBQ and wood-fired pizza oven are available for all guests to enjoy.

A complimentary continental breakfast, featuring different local specialities each day, is provided every morning.  Packed lunches and evening meals can also be arranged for an additional charge.



From the moment we set eyes on Finca Gran Cerros we felt that it was special. We fell in love with the spectacular mountain views and the peace and quiet of the elevated location; we knew it was an ideal place to escape to and unwind.

We now have the privilege of being able to share this special place, not only with our gorgeous (and very pampered) rescue galgo Gracie and our adopted (and very independent) cats, Bert, Brian, Harold and Florence, but also with guests from all around the world who want to experience the very best of tranquil, rural, Spain.

We hope that you’ll enjoy your visit to Finca Gran Cerros, and we’ll do everything we can to make your experience a relaxing and memorable one.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you soon.
