Although you have the feeling of being isolated and alone on our mountain, the location is quite central for diverse activities.

  • We are close to the Costa tropical, which is far less crowded than the other Spanish Costas.

  • A twenty-minute drive brings you to the bustling town Almuñecar and the beach. 

  • If you’d like to visit the bigger cities such as Malaga and Granada or the Sierra Nevada, you’re only an hour away.

  • The entrance of the national park of the Sierras de Tejeda Almijara y Alhama is a twenty-minute drive away.

  • We offer challenging/easy hikes, road and (e-)mountain bike rides starting from the finca.

  • ​1,5 hour drive from Malaga Airport.

About us


We are a young and adventurous couple that decided to replace rainy Belgium for sunny Spain, because we were looking for a new challenge. We, that is Alexander and Marjolein. 

Alexander has a background as a graphical designer, was owner of a bike (repair) shop, is organizer of sport events, and a real enthusiast for creating things from scratch.

Marjolein is a chemical engineer who has a big interest for sports, cooking and outdoor life.

Together we are a match made in heaven to give you the best travel experience you could wish for.

You can find us while driving through the Vale Verde, with plenty of tropical fruit trees such as avocados, mangos, cherimoyas, nispolas.


If you have any questions about us or the finca, send us a mail and we’ll get back to you.
Looking forward to welcome you at Finca Arriba!


Marjolein & Alexander
