Discover Almeria

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

Almeria has so much more to offer than Mojacar seafront, as beautiful as it may be.

We have made a new website to showcase things to see and do in the area, whilst staying at Finca Arboleda, of course.

Our new blog there will feature #whatsoninvera, restaurant reviews and just about anything that catches our eye.

Let us know what you think and please send us ideas that we can feature on Discover Almeria

More and cheaper flights to Finca Arboleda

A happy new year to all guests past and future.

2012 started with a very dry winter/spring which continued into the hottest, driest summer for 40 years.

As the rest of the world seems to be experiencing freak weather, here this brought on a series of extreme conditions. The mountains above Bedar had a huge forest fire which the village was lucky to escape. The end of September saw the hot weather “break” in spectacular style with a rain storm which brought much flooding and damage locally. We were lucky to escape both events.

Since the September rain we are again enjoying a dry/mild winter, roll on summer!

Apart from the weather, Asprodalba, our neighbours have had a long overdue facelift. The Priors

are still waiting for someone, Vera town hall, to do the right thing. Doctor Who paid the area a visit. Stig had 2 operations on ruptured cruciate ligaments so at least the rabbits have been safe.

We are fit and well and hope you are too!

We look forward to greeting new and old friends this year.

Happy new year to you all

Perfect for Golf

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

We have 5 golf courses within easy reach of Finca Arboleda and with the weather still in the mid 20’s it’s a perfect time to make use of them.

have some sporting success!

La Casa del Cine de Almería

A museum documenting the film history of Almeria has opened. It is in a renovated 19th Cent. manor house which was home to John Lennon when he filmed “How I won the war” in Almeria in late 1966. Lennon wrote Strawberry fields forever during his stay and recorded the 1st demo in the mansions bathroom! It is also speculated that he planned to split from the Beatles duing this period. He met Yoko on his return to London.
