Finca Arboleda is situated 5 minutes drive from Vera near Mojacar in Costa Almeria Spain.
Finca Arboleda is set in 5000 sq metres, about 1.25 acres in the countryside just outside Vera.
Swimming pool, the beautiful private 10 x 5 metre Pebbletec pool is only shared between people staying in the Villa and the Apartment. It has a salt purifying system so the chlorine is hardly noticeable and the salt content is only the same as a human tear.
The garden is set on three levels. Our house, the apartment and the pool are on the top level, the middle level is planted with Olive trees and the villa is on the lower level with more trees.
Overall the garden is planted with over 100 mature trees including 52 Olive trees from which we press our own organic extra virgin oil that you welcome to try and we offer for sale. There are 25 citrus trees with Oranges, Mandarins, Satsumas and Lemons. We also have Apricots, Figs, Pomegranates, Mulberries, Plums, Pears, Apples and Vines. Please help yourselves to any fruit that is in season.
Cycling. The area is great to explore by bike and we have 2 mountain bikes that you may use.
Olive Oil, we pick our Olives in November and take the Olives to a press at Lubrin. In 2009 we picked 750 Kilos of Olives and from them we got 125 Litres of Extra Virgin Olive Oil that we invite Guests to sample and hopefully buy. We are organic and never spray our trees. Why not come and stay and help pick the Olives? .. It's good fun!
Chickens, we have 10 friendly Hens, 6 Rhode island Reds and 4 White leghorns who produce lovely free range eggs, a great breakfast when cooked in our Olive Oil.
Stig, is our friendly Lurcher, a stray who came to stay. He is a cross between a Greyhound and a Belgian Shepherd dog and has the most wonderful temperament and is loved by most people, read the guest book!
