Lemon Grove Farmhouse is located in a great position in a beautiful spot amongst the Lemon Groves. It is situated between the Villages of Benamargosa and Riogordo, in a quiet location. The Farmhouse can sleep 9 guests.
The stylish and well equipped kitchen is great for the chefs and has all you will need, plenty of utensils and crockery/cutlery. There is also a dishwasher. The Farmhouse has a lovely covered terrace that is just outside the door and there is also a dining table in the kitchen too.
On the ground floor is a lovely bunk bed room which also has a third bed, a fantastic and fun environment for children to be on their own and next to it a sweet snug which has 2 single beds. There is also wi-fi available.
Down a few steps is the Farmhouse Bathroom, very spacious with Bath and Separate Shower Enclosure, toilet, sink and bidet.
Up a few more steps is another double bedroom, which used to be the old hay loft!
There is also a wonderful added bonus of a small lounge area just off the metal spiral stairs that lead to the bedroom, which is great for relaxing before bed, but also doubles as an ideal extra child’s bedroom as it has a sofa bed that can sleep 2. The Master Bedroom has a Double Bedroom with Spacious storage area. The en-suite bathroom has a shower enclosure. There is a large Outside Terrace area off the Bedroom which is great for getting away from it all, ideal for enjoying a quiet spot of breakfast!
So this flexibility can be handy for families that want the smaller children to be close by.
There is a facility for all of the guests to be able to sit inside and dine, but the set up is designed for independent living and alfresco dining and why would you not in an area of Spain that is known for it’s 300 days of blue sky days and stunning evenings plus the added ingredient of tranquillity which this hamlet has.

This wonderful and historic collection of buildings are all attached to each other and allow full flexibility in allowing different groups to have their own space. You can find shade in the gardens and grounds or of course sunbathing on the pool terrace and the terrace that leads off from there. Next door is the larger cottage, known as Ivy Cottage that sleeps up to 5 guests. The Pool and lower Terraces are shared between both properties.
For eating outside the BBQ is just outside the farmhouse door, there are 2 large tables. The lovely 8 x 4 m pool is down some steps and behind a locked gate, which really helps families to relax. Just down from Lemon Grove is the river, dry in spring and summer which is a fantastic natural play area for children and a great and different walking environment for adults, you can walk all the way down to the Mediterranean if the desire takes you and time allows.
The whole set up is like stepping back in time with bread oven on show and mule tie rings still positioned in the exterior walls.
Smoking is permitted outside only please.
The whole interior has been lovingly restored and character kept but modern facilities added.
Above Lemon Grove is one more cottage know locally as the chapel due to its styling, this is where Wesley and Sophie live with their dog and 2 cats it is handy having the owners on site for advice and the odd bit of help that may be needed, but at the same they are not obtrusive, and are as discreet or as helpful as you require.
ABOUT THE AREA
Lemon Grove Farmhouse is perfectly located to experience the rural element of Andalucia, in a lovely hamlet that has hardly changed since it was built 200 years ago.The whole area is steeped in Moorish history and the location allows you to switch between a relaxing environment and also within 30 minutes experience beach life, towns and tour the many beautiful white villages that surround this hamlet.
The walks in the local area are rewarding, especially spring and summer walking along the dry river beds which are just below the Lemon Groves but bird watching, fiestas and horse riding can all be part of the holiday agenda.
The caves of Nerja and the pretty seaside village itself are only 45 minutes away, but this area of Andalucia still has coast line which is peaceful and spacious so if the desire is to also get away from the crowds then you will have picked the right place.
Marbella with its glitz and port is only just over 1 hour away, worth seeing how the other half live and then coming back to the tranquillity of the grove.
Also Gibraltar, Ronda and Seville are all reachable with 2 – 3 hours.
The local bars are not tourist prices so you can still get a menu of the day for 5-7 € including 3 courses and a drink and bottles of San Miguel are only around the 1.20€ mark not bad for a trendy drink in the UK, wine is still great value and fresh fruit and vegetables though not as uniformed in shape as the ones for sale in the British supermarkets usually tastes better and is far cheaper.
