"What time can we check in or out?"
It is customary for you to check out between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. and check in between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Of course we try to be flexible with these times. Your time of check-in or check-out 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 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, 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. If you have Google Maps, enter Finca Gordo and Mr. Google will show you the way. The GPS coordinates are 36.931616,-4.289682 . Make sure that you drive through the village and never turn into a dirt road or gravel or sand track. Only the last 100 meters is gravel. We have an electric gate. Ring the bell and we'll open. If we don't hear the bell, call 0031653534088 or sound the horn.
Public transport: No problem at all. There is a bus 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 about 1 hour. And do you have luggage? We will gladly pick you up from the bus station.
Would you like 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 of our BB in Andalusia is sufficiently large and also has sufficient parking space behind our automatic gate. Your car is safe and out of sight of the seats as much as possible.
"Where can we sit outside?"
Our Finca is 7800 m2 and each room has its own sitting area. But you can also sit and or lie scattered throughout the site. You can enjoy the panorama almost 360 degrees on our BB close to Málaga. We only like to keep our own terrace in front of the house to ourselves.
Is the pool heated?
Yes, our 8 x 4 meter swimming pool is heated in spring and autumn. The pool is separate from the house with sun loungers all around for private sunbathing. You can also enjoy the view from the pool.
Are children welcome?
Basically 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. Would you rent all the rooms with 1 or 2 families, then you are more than welcome with the children. We assume that you keep an eye on them yourself. A fellow BB in Andalusia, owners Marc and Madelon known from the program I leave, call it with a wink: 'child-unfriendly accommodation'.
Can we rent the whole complex?
Yes, of course you can rent the entire complex if no other guests have been booked yet. Please keep in mind that we do live on the Finca ourselves. If you want to rent the complex, we can arrange everything in consultation. 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 (extra) guests.
Do you also provide meals?
Of course we provide breakfast. But we can also provide other drinks and meals such as lunch and dinner. If necessary, we can hire an ex-Michelin star chef for you.
Can we use our own food and drink on the Finca?
The honest answer: rather not. We want to watch out for vermin. You can't really prepare meals. But we understand that if you have bought a very nice wine or something special, you want to enjoy it. So we don't want to stop you from doing that. We would appreciate it if you use the "honesty bar" as much as possible.
Are there restaurants and shops in the village?
Yes, there are plenty of real Spanish restaurants and a supermarket, grocery, butcher and bakery. There is even a museum and Riogordo has 2 churches. On arrival you will find in your room an extensive list of most restaurants, including a restaurant where a chef with star experience cooks.
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 fridge with soft drinks, Spanish wines and various beers. The bar also serves savory snacks.
We request that you note what you have used. The costs will be charged on departure.
