The Arbuthnotts & Almuña
Almuña is the Arbuthnott family home set in the Sierra de Espartina on a farm of five hundred acres. It has incredible views stretching to distant fortified Berber villages and across the Straits to the mountains of North Africa. The house has a sense of timelessness and indefinable feeling of warmth and affection. As you enter you walk under a terracotta arch laden with sweet scented jasmine into a cobbled courtyard surrounded by roman tiles, Moorish studded doors and dazzling white-washed walls.
- Almuña Almuña is the home of the Arbuthnotts and the base for the majority of their holidays, be it walking, riding, bridge, painting or a family house party. There is a great feeling of warmth and fun that surrounds this beautiful place.
- Jane and Hugh Jane and Hugh Arbuthnott moved their young family from London to the hills of southern Andalucía in 1989. They built Almuña, sent their children to the local village school and started walking holidays.
