Why Kate Petrides chose Coín
Finca Tropical is quiet and secluded for a relaxing holiday, but is only a few minutes away from the shops, bars and cinema in Coin. The views are stunning and the garden is big enough for the famous Finca Olympics which includes events such as Avocado and Spoon racing and tug of war over the swimming pool - losers get a dunking!
What makes this Villa unique
Finca Tropical has a large enclosed garden, private pool and outdoor barbecue area. The views are stunning and the town is very pretty and traditional with lots of tapas bars. There is a Fiesta every August with parades and outdoor bars and everyone parading around in their traditional Spanish costume.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Well maintained property in good size garden with plenty of outside cooking & eating areas & a small
Good size accommodation & very well equipped kitchen with 2 fridge/freezers,
. Excellent for a large group of people.
The annexe gave privacy without being far away from the family!
A car would be definitely needed.
Would certainly recommend Finca Tropical.
So glad you had an enjoyable and comfortable stay at Finca Tropical with your family. I am glad you enjoyed the garden, views and that the grandchildren enjoyed swimming in the pool. We would be very happy to welcome you back if you are visiting Coin again!
Lovely clean, spacious, private, and well equipped villa with an amazing surrounding view
Lovely clean, spacious, private, and well equipped villa. We enjoyed a comfortable 10 days stay there. Outside space is perfect, the pool area has the sun all day (although there are always shady spots if required). The kids really enjoyed the swimming pool. The surrounding view is the best we have had for a long time, especially from the upstairs terrace.
The last bit of the road, especially the sharp left hairpin bend leading to the villa was a bit of a tricky one. It would have been very interesting if we had met a car coming the opposite way.
Steve, the maintenance guy is really friendly and very helpful when required. The villa owner is also really helpful and quick to respond to any messages anytime. So all round, very good villa and lovely area to stay in. Would highly recommend.
Just what we needed
Wonderful views. Lovely accommodation spacious 6 adults in our party Well equipped balcony views and experience great!Pool every day in spite of weather Kate a brilliant renter.
We are so glad that Finca Tropical provided a perfect get away for you and your family. The pool heating was certainly a great help with the cool weather! It is always a pleasure to rent to lovely guests and we hope that you will visit again soon!
Only the weather made the stay anything less than perfect. Pool each day, several breakfasts on the patio and on the rainy nights cosey meals indoors. Barbeque brilliant. Views magnificent. Six adults no arguments due to spacious accommodation.
Thank you so much for the 5 star review for Finca Tropical. I expect the pool heating came into its own and I am so glad you were able to enjoy the swimming and the lovely views when the sun broke through! I am glad you had such a relaxing holiday, that is what Finca Tropical does best! I hope very much you come back to visit again as you mentioned you would like to!
A good holiday get-away
We stayed here for Xmas - to 'get away from it all'. It did the trick perfectly. What was good?
The location, the furniture and fittings, the garden, the table tennis table (and I'm sure the pool is super in better weather - we hit a coldish spell for Andalusia), the local 'carers' and the personal contact to the owner. Convenient distance from Malaga Airport, good for other sightseeing, too. W-Lan and British TV!
I'm sure it is completely different in the summer, but Andalusia at Xmas is lovely with all the citrus fruits on the trees, and Coin was a riot at New Year's Eve!
Less good - the electricity and water supplies. The beds.
But all in all, we were very happy with our choice of Finca - despite slightly below-average weather. Many thanks to the owners! All information provided is accurate and correct.
We are so glad that clients find this a relaxing holiday even in the winter.
The electrics and water issues are being repaired as we write this.
You wont believe the views and the quiet!
From the owners of Finca Tropical and Villa Maria
Our stay was great. The spot is lovely (views!) and the location perfect; you can reach everything easily by car. Very good possibilities for hikes in the mountains. The house is very nice, for good and bad weather. The heated pool is great! One little downside is that the fourth bedroom can only reached from outside the house. For some things in the house (e.g. electricity, pool heating) we needed some help, which was provided immediately; The service was perfect. This gave a very good feeling.
So, excellent holiday, very recommendable!
Coin is an attractive, unspoilt Andalusian 'white' town about 25 minutes drive inland from the coast. It has all amenities including a good variety of shops, bars, restaurants etc., and a large hypermarket. The villa enjoys a semi rural location peacefully located on a hillside about 5 minutes by car, out of town. Finca Tropical is 25 minutes drive from Puerto Banus, Marbella and the sea. There is a small local shop for every day essentials about 15 minutes stroll from the Villa. Clay pigeon shooting, horse riding/trekking, rifle shooting, quad bikes, go-karting, cycling, wolf park, fishing, beautiful walks and nearby lakes, tennis/country club are all activities to be found within easy reach of the villa. Finca Tropical is located in a peaceful, semi-rural position well away from the hustle and bustle of the town. Wonderfully safe for children.
Other Activities: A concrete area by the villa is ideal for rollerblading, remote control cars, ball games, etc
Golf: The nearest golf courses are Alhaurin Golf and Lauro Golf, both within 15 mins drive. There are literally dozens of other golf courses within 30 mins to one hour's drive, to suit all standards.
