The house was built in the 1970s, and the architect won an award for the innovative design.

It is a family house, now regularly let for holidays as well as being a venue for yoga, painting, music and lifestyle courses.

Seasonally grown vegetables are available along with olive oil produced from El Alamo olives.

  • Travelling as a large group is always fraught with issues; you end up paying over the odds for extremely average properties. However, Finca Del Alamo is a veritable haven for the price. Lots of living and dining space, gorgeous decor, fresh lemons, olives and almonds within the grounds, shaded table tennis area and the surrounding towns are a ceramicists’ heaven. The beaches within a 30 minute drive are stunning and I’d highly recommend a visit to Fort Bravo in Tabernas. BEST DAY EVER if you like an authentic wild west/shoot-em-up experience. Bar el Pipa in Nijar serves the best granizados around.

    For any budding footballers, the astroturfed grounds in Nijar (5 minute drive from the house) is the best we’ve seen anywhere and it’s free. Beware of kids who want to play in the heat…..heat exhaustion is not a pleasant ailment. Late afternoon is perfect and there is a swimming pool on site too.

    The caretaker lives discreetly on-site in separate quarters. The pool is more geared to adults but the beaches more than compensate for water-crazy kids. All very minor points. If you like affordable, far from the madding crowd, eco-grandeur in a remote but beautiful setting, the Finca is the place to be.

  • Pierre’s house is wonderful. All clean and new. Very neat and tastefully decorated. The living-kitchen is large and well equipped, with all kinds of cooking utensils. The bedroom is cozy, with two single beds super comfortable and direct access to the bathroom. The shower is new, quite modern. In addition the room has a big fan and we do not pass heat, because the house is located in a high zone of the mountain of Nijar. On arrival we were greeted by Pierre who was very friendly and showed us around the house. The other days a very nice couple, Antonio and Isabel, take care of the farmhouse and help you with whatever you need. Also in the garden there are two dogs, one of them super affectionate, always approaching our door to play. The area is beautiful and very calm, where you can see the stars like nowhere! As for communications with the beaches, by car all are generally around 20-30 minutes away. The truth is that our stay was perfect and we hope to return soon. 100% recommendable!! Thank you very much Pierre, Antonio and Isabel.

  • June 2019 – Liz. Wow, what an incredibly special week we had at Finca Del Alamo. It will be a week I will never forget. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the excellent organising, most delicious food and kindness. Your willingness to make our group welcome and help with any queries was greatly appreciated.
  • South east Spain is well off the beaten track and that is its charm. Close to the Andalusian village of Nijar, the Finca is set in countryside with views of the village and surrounding craggy peaks, all the more dramatic at sunset. It is perfect for walks, a relaxing book or al fresco dining. A week made for the perfect getaway. read more

  • Very good place to stay and enjoy the beaches and spots at Cabo de Gata.. The place was fully equiped and the housekeepers were great! Car is necessary… We want to return!

    Romulo – November 2016
  • This is the second time we have stayed at Pierre’s apartments and the experience is always the same: UNIQUE !!!! We will be back very soon!

    Luca – November 2016
  • Ha sido una experiencia genial. La casa es tal y como se muestra en las fotos. Todo muy nuevo, bien cuidado y limpio. La ubicación es perfecta. Está situado a las afueras de Níjar y se respira mucha calma y tranquilidad. Perfecta para desconectar de la ciudad. Además, desde la casa puedes llegar a las mejores playas/calas del Cabo de Gata en 20-30 minutos (incluidos los caminos de tierra de muchas calas). Isabel y Antonio han sido muy amables y nos han hecho sentir como en casa. ¡Repetiríamos sin dudarlo!

  • Tanja Mickwitz May 2018 “OH THIS PLACE…it is so incredibly enchanting…hard to describe how magical it feels….The house which looks so grand yet is completely homely, modern but rustic, elegant yet quirky, impressive and still so heartwarmingly welcoming.  I think I’m in love.”

  • Pierre’s traditional cortijo is beautiful! A great experience if you want to “live” like a local. With paradise area Cabo the Gata, small town Nijar and the bigger city Almería, its location is very good! Housekeeper Isobel friendly welcomed us and showed us the house. A great spacious house with all the equipment you need!

  • The apartment is just the perfect spot to relax, to enjoy some quality time far from busy cities and rush. Pierre is a very inspiring personality, Madame Isabell and her husband, who are making sure everything is in order, are kind and caring and made the stay extraordinary. The place is cosy and taken very good care of, from the first moment we felt at home – we enjoyed it to the fullest. Thanks for everything, see you next time!”

  • May 2018 “the best yoga retreat I’ve been to in 20 years”

  • The apartment was as promised. The site is idyllic, in the middle of nature and with all amenities. Isabel, Antonio and Pierre charming. We saw the entire farm and it is very pretty. The apartment is a bit away from the entertainment area but worth it just for the views. If we return to Nijar we repeat for sure!
