Guest Book for 2009

What our guests say about Finca Limoneros in 2009....
Below are comments received from guests taken straight from our Guestbook.

For previous guests who stayed during past years, see our
Guest Book for 2008.
Our visit at the Finca Limoneros was very nice. The Adam studio was comfortable. The service of the owners was very good. We made a nice trip in the surroundings of Alora. The landscape and nature is lovely, so much different we are used to in Holland. We can recommend friends and others to visit this part of Spain and in particular the Finca Limoneros.

Annie & Theo Nijdam, Appelscha, Holland (September 2009)
It was nice staying in 'Oliver' for 3 nights, and enjoyed very much the 2 trips led by Heidi. We went to El Chorro and surroundings and also to Fuente de Piedra. And thanks to Heidi we found the way out of El Chorro!
In the book 'Where to watch birds in Southern Spain' (Garcia & Patterson) it says
"If you are foolhardy enough to come through the village the easiest way is simply to ask, in a questioning tone, for El Chorro, and some kind soul usually points the way. ....We strongly suspect there may be long-lost birders in the village trying to find their way out!"
It was the tours of both Rock Thrushes!!
Many thanks

Nancy & Jacob de Vries, Lochern, Holland (September 2009)
We liked our stay in the Abigail apartment and did some nice trips in the area (Torcal, Ronda, Sierra de las Nieves ....). Some good birds too, Bonelli's Eagles (2) in Alora (rocks behind town), migrating Honey Buzzards (about 50) over the Finca and Orphean warbler (Torcal) etc.
Thanks a lot!

Very cosy and well equipped - ideal base for looking around.  Hope to come back.
Jill and Michael,  Dulverton, Somerset  (September 2009)
Thanks Martin and Heidi for a truly wonderful fortnight and introducing us to a relaxed way of life in Alora, also to all the great people we've met - thanks for beers, cheers and B.B.Q's, lovely welcome pack and all the trimmings.
PS. Great directions to Finca Limoneros by the way!
Terry, Angie, James and Shannon Earl,  Colchester (August 2009)
A great place to start a two week tour of Andalucia, 2 days wasn't enough, particularly after a 3am start for the airport!! In our short stay we managed to take in Alora, El Chorro and the lakes (well worth a visit!).
If you drive into Alora, it really is a right turn straight after the traffic lights!! Although the way I went still gets you there and is especially suitable for donkeys!!
PS. Liz says thankyou for the welcome pack!

Matt & Liz, Bilstan, West Mids. (August 2009)
Perfect hospitality and the perfect place for us to un-wind. Felt like a home away from home. Thanks very much

Brendon and Debbie, London (July 2009)
Our week has been a lovely holiday. Early morning sights and afternoons relaxing by the pool.

R & G Duff, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand (June 2009)
From beginning to end, it has been fantastic week and the Finca is looking amazing, all down to the efforts of Martin and Heidi. They are the perfect hosts - we are relaxed, tanned and de-stressed. Thank you both and see you soon.x (Sherill)

Heidi and Martin are doing a fantastic job in our absence and the Finca looks better than ever. We can't wait till we return for another visit! Saturday's BBQ was a terrific highlight. (Keith)
We have had everything we wanted on this holiday. The accommodation is excellent in 'Adam' and we have slept over 10 hours each night!! Amazing! Heidi and Martin have been very welcoming and informative about everything. El Chorro and the lakes were good trips out and Ronda was amazing, we loved it! Very difficult to tear ourselves away from the pool and sunloungers though! Thank you.
The welcome pack was great, just what we needed on arrival, beer and wine! Thanks!

Liz & David Corder. Ruddington, Nottingham. (June 2009)
After a week of almost comatose relaxation we're just about fit for repatriation!!
We had a delightful break, saw loads of birds, new and old but still no purple gallinules they really exist? (keep looking Heidi!)

David & Sue Lovegrove, Wallingford, Oxfordshire (June 2009)
A whole week of rest and doing nothing at all! Thank you both for looking after me so well - see you again soon - I hope.

Mollie Gleave, Bournemouth June 2009

Thanks for a restful stay.

Anita & Eddie Hughes Cambridgeshire June 2009
Almost 4 years since our last visit and it's just how we remembered. We've had the peaceful week we were looking for. Stayed in the Abigail this time, and it was nice to have the added extras. Our highlights are always the birds; little owls, choughs, hoopoes, vultures and (not many) beeaters. Thank you Heidi and Martin
Sarah and Brian Plant,Troon, Scotland May 2009
Waking up to BeaEaters calling and enjoying delicious breakfasts prepared by Heidi & Martin - we have found a part of paradise in 'Real Spain' at Finca Limoneros.
Thank you both for your kindness. Enjoyed birdwatching trips with Heidi, hope you manage to find the Elusive Gallinule!
Peter and Pauline Rawden. Matlock, Derbyshire April 2009
Spring is arriving in Andalucia! Heidi and Martin are charming and helpful, providing us with breakfast on the terrace -what a way to start the day - highly recommended!!
3 days birding with Keith - brilliant! Short-toed Eagles and little owls were our favourites!! Train ride to Malaga for Picasso. A lovely week, thanks!!
David and Liz Eastham, Preston Lancs March 2009
Delightfully quiet place to stay, given its edge of town location. Great day birdwatching at local sites with Keith and excellent trip to Fuente de Piedra for a superb nature reserve (00s Flamingo,100+ Crane and 1 sleepy White-headed duck!!)
Pleasantly suprised by Malaga - Picasso museum is a gem! Mixed weather & rather cool....managed to sit outside with coats on!!
