We had a perfect stay at Marina and Paul’s studio apartment and would highly recommend a visit for anyone looking for a special getaway!!! The place is a beautiful and quiet retreat just outside of Mijas and a short drive from Fuengirola and Malaga. The studio apartment itself is spacious with ample storage and is well stocked with a very comfy double bed, kitchenette and bathroom. The hosts are absolutely lovely and very welcoming and helpful. They were on hand during the week to help answer any questions while still respecting our own privacy. Paul has a wonderful art studio while Marina offers yoga in the yoga tent by the pond in their lovely garden. The property is accessible by taxi but for ease, we would recommend getting a car (La Caramba was recommended and a good company). The place is perfectly located to explore the region (by car) and we did day trips to Nerja, Ronda, Fuengirola, Marbella and Malaga as well as enjoying days by the pool. Can’t recommend this place enough and we look forward to returning! Hannah & Zoë

Back to la Tierra is a great airbnb with special hosts. We enjoyed inspiring talks, beautiful yoga sessions and a relaxing place with a huge pool, lovely goats and chicken in the garden, close enough to shops and beaches and still an oasis! We are sure we will be back!

Back to La Tierra is a place where your inner peace is allowed "to be". Inner peace complemented by peaceful surroundings. Our most restful and relaxing time during our travels in Spain (Madrid, Malaga, Galicia, Gijon, San Sebastian and *Portugal) were at Back to La Tierra. The peace, the coffee under the poolside lounge bed, the raw linen bed sheets, the pleasant temperature of the place (regardless of the summer heat - no need for turning on the a/c) and Marina's attention to detail can be seen in every corner (even in the dishwashing sink). Marina and Paul are extremely respectful of privacy. My only complaint is we did not get to share more time with them ;) they are the kind of people that make you gravitate towards them.

El jardín , piscina y ubicación de la casa es genial , paz total. La verdad es que la elección de este airbnb fue lo mejor de nuestro viaje a Málaga. Muchas gracias por todo y nos vemos pronto Marina!!!

We loved our short stay at BTLT! Very relaxing and comfortable! The room was great, very stylish and some nice traditional Andaluz touches! You have a very nice spot. Thanks for making us welcome and I’m sure we will be back at some point!

If you get the chance to book a stay at this little paradise do it! It's great. The place is wonderful and the hosts Marina and Paul are the best. Attentive and caring and inspiring people. The studio was a perfect place for someone travelling alone.

It’s so special: relaxed and sunny and respectful for everything that grows/flows... Beauty is in every detail to see (paintings, tiles, authentic furniture, comfi linen, lemon and orangetrees, the Yogatent, the pool, the garden, the pond) but also in the experience of walking around, being here. Caring is very subtile with eggs from their own chickens, filtered natural cleaned water and still excellent WiFi. Solar-polar lights in the evening...why aren’t we living here? A throw away from the AirPort and near to the sea...special beaches, markets, vibrant places...Marina and Paul share it, so we felt a little bit local :)) Heerlijke plek...echt zo fijn hier! Overal aan gedacht en toch zoooo relaxed, alsof het vanzelfsprekend is.

Ons verblijf bij Back to la Tierra was fántastisch, Prachtige plek, sùper vibe, relaxt, en 'n schitterende accommodatie ( sienna suite ) alle ruimte, Lekker om in alle rust n boek te lezen bij het zwembad op de heerlijke loungebanken, maar ook de mogelijkheid om n praatje te maken met andere mensen met n Lèkkere bak koffie, Bij aankomst ( s'nachts ) stonden er al van allerhande lekkere dingetjes klaar voor de eerste dag, heel fijn!!! En s'ochtends lekkere yoga les in de bell-tent ( tè gek, tussen t gefluit van de vogels en t ruisen an het riet!!!!!) Veel goede tips gekregen wbt omgeving en eettentjes van Paul en marina, Oprecht betrokken wbt natuur, de tuin ( n understatement) is nog bezig te ontstaan, maar laat nu al 'n voorproefje zien van hoe we in de toekomst eigenlijk allemaal met natuur zouden moeten omgaan, goede inspirerende uitleg over de Permacultuur techniek, prachtig!!!!! Resumé: We baalden enorm dat we er maar 5 dagen waren, 5 weken was beter geweest! Wát 'n verstopt juweel!

 

 

“Our stay at Back to la Tierra was fantastic, Beautiful place, super vibe, laid-back, and beautiful accommodation (Sienna Suite) all space, Nice to read a book in peace by the swimming pool on the lovely lounge sofas, but also the possibility to chat with other people with one more delicious cup of coffee, Upon arrival (at night) there were all kinds of tasty things ready for the first day, very nice !!! And in the morning nice yoga class in the bell tent (too crazy, between the whistling of the birds and the rustling of the reeds !!!!!) Received many good tips about the environment and eateries from Paul and marina, Sincerely concerned about nature, the garden (n understatement) is still in the making, but already shows a taste of how we should all deal with nature in the future, good inspiring explanation about Permaculture technology, beautiful !!!!! Resume: We were very disappointed that we were only there 5 days, 5 weeks would have been better! What a hidden jewel!”

Wij hebben onwijs genoten van ons verblijf in The Ochre Suite van Back to la Tierra. De ruimte is heel fijn ingericht, het bed ligt erg lekker en de douche is heerlijk. Daarnaast is deze plek echt ontzettend fijn om tot rust te komen. Het is heerlijk vertoeven aan het zwembad (met genoeg zitjes en ligbedden), de omliggende tuin is prachtig en ontbijten in de zon met verse koffie kan nergens beter. Het is de perfecte combinatie tussen rust en drukte, want met de auto rij je gemakkelijk naar meerdere leuke dorpjes in de buurt. De gastvrijheid van Marina en Paul (heel erg leuk om jullie te leren kennen!) maakt dit volgens ons de perfecte getaway en wij hopen zeker in de toekomst nogmaals terug te mogen komen.

 

“We really enjoyed our stay in The Ocher Suite from Back to la Tierra. The space is very nicely decorated, the bed is very comfortable and the shower is wonderful. In addition, this place is really nice to unwind. It is wonderful to relax by the pool (with enough seats and sun beds), the surrounding garden is beautiful and having breakfast in the sun with fresh coffee is nowhere better. It is the perfect combination between peace and bustle, because you can easily drive to several nice villages in the area by car. The hospitality of Marina and Paul (very nice to meet you!) Makes this the perfect getaway in our opinion and we certainly hope to be able to come back again in the future.”

We had such an excellent time at Back to La Tierra Finca and felt so so relaxed and at home. Thank you for making us feel welcome and at home there. We really enjoyed exploring the various parts of the beautiful grounds, especially the hammock by the pond and the wonderful pool area ! Although the studio space may seem space small , it was more than comfortable for the two of us and had everything we needed to cook all our meals during our stay. It felt very private and as if we were just there by ourselves ! Marina and Paul were very helpful and gracious hosts, very sweetly Marina even offered us a lift down to town. We would definitely recommend staying there ! Just to say again thank you so much for a lovely stay at your beautiful home ! We would love come back one day !

Back to la tierra is een fantastisch vakantie adresje! Heerlijk rustig en toch overal dichtbij! Wij logeerden in de sfeervolle en prima ingerichte Sand studio! Een super gastvrije ontvangst en goede tips van Paul en Marina om de omgeving te verkennen. Wandelen in natuurpark El Torcal of naar het Alhambra in Granada! Het binnenland is prachtig en vanaf Back to la tierra ben je snel bij het strand. Wij kunnen het iedereen aanraden die houdt van rust, een prettige sfeer en heel veel mogelijkheden dichtbij!

 

“Back to la tierra is a fantastic holiday address! Wonderfully quiet and yet close to everything! We stayed in the attractive and well-furnished Sand studio! A super welcoming reception and good tips from Paul and Marina to explore the area. Walk in the El Torcal nature park or to the Alhambra in Granada! The interior is beautiful and from Back to la tierra you are quickly at the beach. We can recommend it to anyone who loves peace, a pleasant atmosphere and lots of options nearby!”

Wat een prachtplek, een oase een paar kilometer van de kust, vlak bij het mooie witte dorpje Mijas Pueblo. Zeer stijlvolle studio met alles erop en eraan, in een bijzonder inspirerende omgeving. Met bijzondere tuin, en zwembad dat we helemaal voor onszelf hadden, wat een privacy! Bovendien mochten we aanschuiven aan de table d'hôte met twee andere gasten. De fantastische kookkunsten en het goede gezelschap van Marina, Paul en de anderen maakten ons bezoek absoluut tot een onvergetelijke en inspirerende ervaring!

 

 

“What a beautiful place, an oasis a few kilometers from the coast, near the beautiful white village of Mijas Pueblo. Very stylish studio with all the trimmings, in a particularly inspiring environment. With a special garden and swimming pool that we had to ourselves, what a privacy! Moreover, we were invited to join the table d'hôte with two other guests. The fantastic cooking skills and the good company of Marina, Paul and the others made our visit absolutely an unforgettable and inspiring experience!”

Heel fijn plekje op 20 minuten van vliegveld Malaga, en toch weg van alle drukte. Marina en Paul zijn 2 inspirerende mensen en hebben een geweldig 4 pers appartement en 2 pers studio gecreëerd. Met vlak beneden je de sinaasappelgaard op basis van permacultuur, en naast je het zwembad met fijne ligplekken. Alles is aanwezig om heerlijk genieten en ontspannen. Ook binnen is het met veel zorg ingericht en de gastvrijheid en behulpzaamheid van Marina en Paul zijn precies de fijne mix van genoeg privacy en je toch in de watten gelegd voelen. De locatie, vlakbij Mijas is perfect voor leuke uitstapjes naar bijv Ronda, Antequerra, Malaga. Doe zeker ook de wandeling in El Torcal!

 

“Very nice place 20 minutes from Malaga airport, and yet away from the crowds. Marina and Paul are 2 inspiring people and have created a great 4-person apartment and 2-person studio. With the orange grove on the basis of permaculture just below, and next to you the swimming pool with nice loungers. Everything is there to enjoy and relax. Also inside it has been furnished with great care and the hospitality and helpfulness of Marina and Paul are exactly the fine mix of enough privacy and you feel pampered. The location, close to Mijas, is perfect for nice trips to eg Ronda, Antequerra, Malaga. Definitely do the walk in El Torcal!”
