Excellent small CL-type site with room for up to 5 units. There was only one other caravan there during our stay, so it was very quiet and peaceful. Lovely views of the mountains and surrounding farmland.

Nice little shower room, very cosy in January! Washing machine is excellent value at 2 euro 50, and Jeff lent us a large rotary clothes drier which was very useful! He and Irene are very helpful, they even managed to find us a replacement for our broken wing mirror!

There are plenty of facilities for eating and shopping nearby. At Coin there is a large shopping mall, La Trocha, with a useful Dunne's store. The coast is a short drive away - Fuengirola, Marbella etc. Mijas is a pretty village with great views of the coast. There are smaller, less developed villages and towns nearby - we enjoyed Alora.

Altogether a very refreshing change from large, busy sites, and it makes a pleasant, restful base from which to explore the surrounding area.

We opted to use this site as a base for touring Southern Spain after reading the reviews of the site by previous visitors. We count ourselves as being so lucky for having found it. The owners, Jeff & Irene are really nice people who can't do enough for you.

The site was perfect for our requirements, all the Costa del Sol resorts are within an hours drive, Gibraltar took us an 1hr. 15min. We had a terrific time.

The site itself was small and the access to it down an unmade road looks a bit intimidating but don't let that put you off, it's easily passable for all but the biggest units. The facilities are better than most much bigger sites that we've seen, the views across the valley to the Sierra Nevada mountains on the horizon have to be seen to be believed, it is so serene yet the valley is full of life of all sorts. You need to have binoculars to take full advantage of this as there is a large expanse of land across the valley.

The site toilet and shower facilities are small but spotless, heated and the hand towels etc. Are changed every day! Jeff and Irene are so helpful too, nothing is a bother, if you need anything they are there, if you don't they're happy to leave you alone too. Wi-fi is good too, and free! Fees are very reasonable. Perfect.

There are plenty of local places to eat out or supermarkets for whatever your requirements within a short drive, all the local towns and villages are worth a visit they are so quaint.

We enjoyed it so much that we're already making plans to go back early in 2015.

What an excellent campsite, it is just as described, except the facilities are much better than much larger campsite. Wi Fi is so much better, it's as good as being at home and cheaper than larger campsites. The help from the owners is priceless, we had a puncture, we had problems with the gas in the van, the owner was more than helpful, he went and got materials to fix problems and his very practical abilities solved each situation. The views are what you want to wake up to each morning. We would have liked them to move their site with us through Spain. We will be back

My wife and I loved this site. We stay at many CL sites and this is one of the best equipped we've stayed at. The cold beer on arrival really set the scene for a great couple of weeks. Jeff and Irene are great, they'll give you space to get on with your life or be available to help where necessary. Jeff helped me get the car fixed when we had problems and accompanied me to the garage.

The shower and toilet block is simply the best we've seen for a CL site, very clean with fresh rugs everyday and the shower is better than any hotel. We always used our own facilities in the past, but used the facilities at this site due to the cleanliness and close proximity. There's a place to wash pots and pans and clothes on site and it's a secure site as well, always locked up.

They provided not one, but two satellite connections so we could watch and even record Sky programs, not that we watched much television with the fantastic weather. We were able to use the pool for a dip and due to the lack of light pollution, sitting outside at night watching the shooting stars is a great experience. The day time views are also excellent and we must have watched the sun go down every night for two weeks.

They know the local areas very well and recommended a local restaurant, only 1 KM away, which we used several times, plus it's really Spanish and relatively cheap. Other local amenities include everything you could want within 10 kms. The beach is only 30-40 mins away at Malaga and Marbella, both of which we hadn't seen before. We also ventured to Nerja which is a beautiful town and great day out.

The water point by the caravan meant we could hook-up a permanent water supply, if we hadn't had the mains device, Jeff had a system he was ready to loan to us, free of charge.

Value for money is unbelievable at €12 per night. Electricity is extra but you only pay what the site gets charged per unit and over two weeks with an aircon cost us less than €50.

Irene is a really good artist and painted a tile for us, only €10, it makes a great present. Jeff and Irene are both caring people who want you to have a great stay, and return of course.

We had a carefree two weeks, can recommend Finca De La Piedra and would definitely go back, that's the bottom line.

We had a lovely few days at Finca de la Piedra. Jeff and Irene are exceptional hosts and we fully recommend their site if you're looking for a nice, quiet retreat in the countryside.

Facilities are excellent and they are well placed as a base to explore the surrounding areas such as Malaga, Marbella, Fuengirola and the Sierra de la Nieves.

The surrounding landscape is beautiful and as they're surrounded by mountains the site is prone to a decent breeze which is a welcome relief in the hot summer months.

We came across this site on internet whilst looking for a smaller CL type site a bit away from the coast.

Its about 25 minutes from Malaga / Torremolinos. On arrival the road down to the site does look a bit off-putting as slightly rough but its fine to bring vehicles down. Good size pitches, running water nearby with hoses to fill up without moving van. Views from pitches are stunning over the countryside to the mountains.

There is one toilet / shower room, clean and warm - shower hot with good water pressure. Washing machine only €2 - bargain also a hand wash sink. Free Wifi on site and they will hook you up to satellite if you want British tv. Electric is charged on a meter use basis (we paid less than 90 cents per night).

The nearest village is about 25 minutes walk away. A small supermarket, bakery and fruit shop, and a few bars.

What makes the site is the total peace and quiet (adults only)and the brilliant owners Jeff and Irene who couldn't be better. They offered to go and pick us up a takeaway on our first night and a cup of coffee on arrival was a nice touch. Without being in your face they are incredibly good hosts - a bottle of Cava for Valentines day was another really lovely gesture.

If you want to get away from the big sites on the coast then this site is recommended. At €12 per night its truly a bargain for the closest to a CL we have found in Spain. We would use again for sure.
