Finca Avedin encompasses 15 acres in all and is home to an extensive variety of flowers, shrubs, trees and other plants, including cork forest, olive and almond groves. This in turn attracts a variety of fauna, especially birds and butterflies. We are particularly proud to have attracted Monarch butterflies back to the valley as part of our journey to re-establish older more diverse ecosystems.
Depending on the time of year, there’s often plenty of fresh produce to savour on the sweeping market garden terraces between the house and pool. Lemon, lime, orange, tangerine, kiwi fruit, citrus caviar, pear, avocado, pomegranate, fig and custard apple trees sit alongside large beds for melons, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, chillies and other produce. All are there to support a range of meals (or cocktails!) and Victoria can help you identify what’s in season during your stay.
Gaucín is on a major migratory route to Africa so you can enjoy a stunning array of birdlife. Griffon vultures can be seen on most days and scores of resident Martins flock to the pool on summer evenings.
Other facilities include table tennis, a boules area by the main lawn and a basketball net on the flat ground above the main entrance. There’s also plenty of space for parking.
