Finca El Pao is a delicious little country bed-and-breakfast in the hills of Alicante, just a 25 minute drive from the beaches of the Costa Blanca. Set in it's own little 4 hectare estate, El Pao is surrounded by terraces of olive and almond trees. For maximum peace and quiet, the hotel is limited to adults only.
The spacious garden has a large swimming pool and lots of places to relax and enjoy the 360° views of rural Spain. There is also a little wellness centre with a sauna and a variety of massages and treatments. Don't forget too, the jacuzzi: a super little spot to relax on a warm evening as the sun goes down.
Inside there are large and small lounges, a dining room and even a little billiard room with pool table. It's comfortable year-round with natural air-conditioning and underfloor heating and a fireplace for the winter.
Many people will come here just to relax. Others will come for the walking as the hotel is set between the mountains of Peña de Mijorn and Peña Roja and the natural park of Cabeço d’Or. For guests of a more adventurous nature, owner Joris can guide you towards horse-riding, mountain-biking, scuba diving, canyoning, paragliding, sailing or speed-boating.
The five guest rooms represent the 5 elements of Feng Shui: water, metal, fire, earth and wood. The superb country location bring you into harmony with nature.

Reviews from Little Hotels Travellers:
|"Rachel and I had a wonderful stay at Finca el Pao.
Thank you for all your assistance- the driving directions were excellent and the Finca could not have been more perfect.
Pascal and Joris are wonderful hosts, eating on your own terrace in the evening was wonderful and so relaxing, as was our entire stay.|
Thanks so much."
Here's What Some People Have Written On Other Review Sites or in the Guestbook:
|One of my best ever stays in Spain. The room's are large and beautiful with lovely views of the Alicante countryside. We will definitely return because I want to sleep in the water-bed room.|
|From the moment we saw the house, everything was magical.|
|I'm writing these lines to send my thanks for the marvellous stay we had at Finca El Pao in the care of Joris and Pascale. The reception we received from them, the beautifully romantic room that they had prepared, the dinner that Pascale prepared with such loving care.... The only sad bit was when we had to leave, because we had had such a marvellous stay.|
