Finca Colina de los Almendros, Spain

By Hollie Wicks

This week we are sending you to a typically Spanish hamlet hidden on the hillside – welcome to Finca Colina de los Almendros. The resort is surrounded by delicious looking almond and olive trees and is the perfect place for pure relaxation.

Take time out of everyday life and soak up the peaceful atmosphere within the authentic Spanish surroundings. However if you’d rather be a bit more adventurous, you can hire mountain bikes from the resort and explore the surrounding areas.

If being active isn’t for you then why not just soak up some sun rays by the pool whilst enjoying the beautiful mountain views. Depending on the time of year the owners allow guests to help themselves to organic almonds, plums, grapes, mandarins or lemons straight from the trees, or pick some of our organic chillis and spice up your cooking!

GC articles show you one of four ways (the one in bold) to live greener…

/ Be a winner (not a binner) /
/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
