"To define us is not easy! Our goal is not to be a Boutique Hotel, Casa Rural, or Bed and Breakfast. Beyond the meaning of individual words - a rural retreat with friendliness that is familiar, but with professionalism, and an ambiance that makes you unwind the moment you arrive and allows you to feel totally relaxed by the time you leave".
Situated on a beautiful 10,500 sqm plot, Cuatre Finques is a unique, family owned Spanish-style finca which opened in May 2014. Creating Cuatre Finques was the making of a dream for Nicky for which she worked so hard. Her vision was to create a beautiful place to relax, a home away from home with personal service, attention to every detail, where guests can enjoy tranquil real Spain in the town of Xalo.
Having travelled many parts of the world and stayed in countless hotels Nicky understands what makes a place to stay special. Not just a nice room but striking a balance between style and service throughout the property - nothing being too much trouble, attention to detail with every aspect and having the time at the end of the day to sit back and enjoy a glass of wine with your guests.
Welcoming groups, couples, families and individuals to enjoy the tranquil environment of Cuatre Finques and the beautiful surroundings of the Xalo Valley. Nicky has created an ambience that makes you unwind the moment you arrive and allows you to feel totally relaxed by the time you leave.
Nicky (38) is from Edinburgh, Scotland, but has had a love of Spain since a young age. Nicky studied a BSc in Meteorology and then worked for the Met Office (yes, the weather people) in an international climate role for 12 years. But during her weekends and evenings she worked tirelessly on various property development projects focusing on one of her passions, interior design. This allowed Nicky to develop her skills in this area of design uniquely combining modern clean lines with vintage finishes.
Working for a big organisation has its ups but usually more downs, but despite her love for the world of Meteorology, Nicky always knew she would leave her job to run a business of her own one day. It has been a dream for what seems like forever, to move to Spain and open a little rural retreat and thankfully (but not without struggle!) it's finally happening.
Nicky loves to entertain and nothing makes her happier than to know her guests are happy and having a lovely time.
Since moving to Spain in 2013 Nicky has had 2 children - Isla (6) & Arran (2). Isla is a bit of a drama queen and spends most of her time in a dance and acting academy in the next town. Arran is a very happy little boy always laughing and enjoying life. Both kids regularly visit Cuatre Finques and love interacting with the guests and their children.
