Some spaces reflect the farm’s origins, like the old cellar (bodega) converted, after opening up of walls for more views on the gardens, into a row of living-room spaces allowing for unhindered separation of guests.
One side room has a television with some foreign channels. The beamed salon itself with hanging lavender-bundles, radiates an old world charm partially due to a special piece of furniture: the unremoved granite reservoir used for trampling the grapes. Scratched on a wallside some pencil marks refer to the 1940-1960 yearly production of “arrobas” (11 liter), stored in the wine casks.
A small courtesy bar is installed with fridge for those guests who wish to serve themselves drinks. A ticket system allows for writing down what has been consumed.
Other living rooms
Further on in the courtyard in a converted stable, there is the Sevilla Salon – another living room giving access to the spacious and lavender-lined garden area. The place is often used for tea-drinking guests checking their birdlists. The terrace with garden chairs offers scenic views on the nearby hills.
Sprinkling of the lawns helps bring down temperatures that can rise to 38 degrees in summer, but normally for short periods only.
Dining Room and Breakfast Room
The finca’s olive-pressing machinery offer an original decor to the dining room, together with the great granite cones which were drawn by a donkey for crushing the farm’s olives. Optional dinners are served by a young team, from 8 till 10 o’clock in the evening.
When guests want to linger longer, they remain with the liquor and wine bottles but put out the lights themselves.
