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 one day in advance.
"Is breakfast included and at what times?"
Yes, breakfast is always included when you book through this site. There is also an option 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 . Make sure that you drive through the village and never take a dirt path or gravel or dirt path. Only the last 100 meters are gravel. We have an electric gate. Ring the bell and we will open it. If we do not hear the bell, please call 0031653534088 or sound the horn.
Public transport: No problem. A bus runs from Malaga to Riogordo 7 times a day from Monday to Friday between 8:00 AM and 8:15 PM. Saturday and Sunday 3 times. If necessary, ask for times. The journey takes approximately 1 hour. Do you have luggage? We will then be happy to pick you up from the bus station.
If you want to be picked up from Malaga airport, that is also possible. We do an airport pick-up for up to 4 people for €80.00.
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 seating area. But you can also sit or lie here and there throughout the site and enjoy the panoramic view from almost 360 degrees. We only like to keep our own terrace in front of the house to ourselves.
Is the pool heated?
We ensure that the pool is above 20 degrees between May and October. The swimming pool is separate from the house with sun loungers around where you can sunbathe privately. You can also enjoy the view from the swimming 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 the rooms with 1 or 2 families, children are more than welcome. We assume that you will keep an eye on them yourself.
Can we rent the entire complex?
Yes, the entire complex can be rented if no other guests have been booked yet. We can take care of everything in consultation. Please keep in mind that we do live at the Finca ourselves. Parties are also possible. If you would like to have more guests stay overnight, we have contacts in the area where we can accommodate your (additional) 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. We can possibly hire an ex-Michelin star chef. Be surprised just like the other guests!
Can we use our own food and drinks at the Finca?
The honest answer: I'd 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 used 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. We call this the Honesty bar. A well-stocked refrigerator with soft drinks, Spanish wines and various beers. The bar also offers savory snacks. We request that you write down what you have used. The costs will be charged upon 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, grocer, butchers, bakers and an ATM. There is even a museum and Riogordo has 2 churches. There is an extensive list of most restaurants in your room.
