We said goodbye to corporate life in search of a better work-life balance and opened our rural retreat, Finca Gran Cerros, in the Andalusian Hills in 2019.
We’ve always had a passion for home fragrance and added our handmade candles, room fragrance sprays, pillow mist and diffusers for our guests to enjoy on their stay with us.
2020 was a difficult year for everyone and that’s when we decided to offer our range online too. Now customers all over Europe are enjoying Finca Gran Cerros at Home!

The Story of our Store
Since before we opened our home to guests, we knew that we wanted to make staying at Finca Gran Cerros extra-special, by providing homemade products and produce – from homemade jams, chutneys and sauces to our own lavender pillow mist.
We just wanted to try and make the experience of staying here at Finca Gran Cerros a little bit more unique and special (when Finca Gran Cerros was just still a dream, we thought we’d have plenty of time on our hands to make these little extra details really come to life!).
The lavender pillow mist was the first little guest-extra that we included. We’d made them when we still lived in London, just for ourselves, and knew that the pillow spray really did help us sleep better!
Guests seemed to like the fact that there was one in each of our guest bedrooms, and that was soon joined by reed diffusers (initially in Fig & Vetiver, Blackcurrant & Tuberose and Lemongrass & Ginger) and our liquid hand soap and hand & body lotion followed shortly afterwards too.
We were really pleased when we were asked by some of our first guests if they could buy the pillow mist and soaps to take home with them, and the idea for our little guest gift shop was born – although we had to wait until the following Winter when we built the outdoor Summer Kitchen and Bar to have somewhere to put it – more on that little (ahem!) project another time.
Ingredients & Materials
We like to source the best quality ingredients and raw materials that we can (typically essential oils and fragrance oils), all licensed, quality tested and certified.
Everything that we make is made in small batches of 10 or fewer, to keep better control of the ingredients and blends.
We think makes for a better quality and more consistent product – as well as less wastage – and we print the majority of our own paper labels on 80% recycled paper stock (just be careful not to get them too wet!).
Everything that we offer for sale has detailed product descriptions which include all the ‘Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act’ prescribed information, ingredients and potential allergen information (to comply with EU and UK consumer law) and you’ll also find more information about our candles as well as tips about how to get the very best burn from any candle, here.
We really hope you enjoy a little piece of this wonderful part of the world in your own home through our Finca Gran Cerros products.
