Questions with answers
"What time can we check in or out?"
Check-in is between 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM and check-out is between 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM. Of course we try to be flexible with these times. Please let us know your check-in or check-out time a day in advance.
"Is breakfast included and at what times?"
Yes, breakfast is always included when you book through this site. There is also a possibility for a GORDO breakfast. You must indicate this and it will be charged extra. In principle, breakfast is between 8.30 and 10.30 am, but if you want to leave early, we can take that into account. You never have to leave our finca with an empty stomach.
"How do we reach you?"
Our Bed and Breakfast is easy to reach by car. Enter Finca Gordo in Google Maps. The GPS coordinates are 36.931616,-4.289682 . Please note that you drive through the village and never take a sand path or gravel or sand path. Only the last 100 meters is gravel. We have an electric gate. Call and we will open. If we don't hear the bell, please call 0031653534088 or sound the horn.
Public transport: No problem at all. A bus runs from Malaga to Riogordo 7 times a day from Monday to Friday between 08:00 and 20:15. Saturday and Sunday 3 times. Please ask for times. The ride takes approximately 1 hour. Do you have luggage? Then we will gladly pick you up from the bus station.
If you want to be picked up from Malaga airport, that is also possible. For €80.00 we do an airport pick-up for up to 4 people.
Are there enough parking spaces?
Our site has sufficient parking space behind our automatic gate. You are safe and out of sight.
"Where can we sit outside?"
Our Finca is 7800 m2 and each room has its own sitting area. But you can also sit or lie scattered throughout the grounds and enjoy the almost 360-degree panoramic view. We only like to keep our own terrace in front of the house to ourselves.
Is the pool heated?
We make sure the pool is above 20 degrees between May and October. The pool is separate from the house with sun loungers around it for private sunbathing. You can also enjoy the view from the pool.
Are children welcome?
In principle, we would like to accommodate adults only. Not because we don't like children, but to guarantee the peace and privacy of the other guests. If you rent all rooms with 1 or 2 families, children are more than welcome. We assume that you keep an eye on them yourself.
Can we rent the entire complex?
Yes, the entire complex is available to rent if no other guests are booked yet. We can arrange everything in consultation. Keep in mind that we do live on the Finca ourselves. Parties are also possible. If you want to have more guests stay overnight, we have contacts in the area where we can accommodate your (extra) guests.
Do you also provide meals?
Of course we provide an extensive breakfast with regional products. But we can also provide other drinks and meals such as lunch and a 3-course dinner on one of the terraces. If necessary, we can hire an ex-Michelin star chef. Be surprised just like the other guests!
Can we use our own food and drink on the Finca?
The honest answer: rather not. We want to watch out for vermin. Preparing meals is really not possible. But we understand that if you have bought a very nice wine or something special, you want to enjoy it. So that is possible. We would appreciate it if you use the "honesty bar" as much as possible.
What is an Honesty Bar and how does it work?
Finca Gordo offers on the veranda or, in winter, a common room. This is what we call the Honesty bar. A well-stocked fridge with soft drinks, Spanish wines and various beers. Savory snacks are also available in the bar. We ask you to record what you have used. The costs will be charged on departure.
Are there restaurants and shops in the village? What is there to do in Riogordo?
Yes, there are plenty of real Spanish restaurants and cafes. There are several supermarkets, grocery, butchers, bakers and there is an ATM. There is even a museum and Riogordo has 2 churches. You will find an extensive list of most restaurants in your room.
