Finca del Rio is a typical Andalucian farmhouse which has been reformed into two homes alongside each other. The original vineyard, called La Vina de la Iglesia, has been replanted with 1100 Tempranillo and Syrah vines.

The Casita
The Casita has hardwood double-glazed windows with fly-screens and typical Spanish ironwork and Casablanca fans in all rooms. There are many terraces for relaxing in the sun or shade. For the cooler months, there are gas centrally heated radiators in all rooms to give background heat, whilst the cast iron Hergom wood-burning stove in the lounge makes for cozy winter evenings.

The Casita is a self catering holiday rental accommodation, contact us for availability.
