CAVE HOUSE RETREAT WITH A LARGE SWIMMING POOL

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Lorca - Luxurious cave house

6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 12 people

Aspirations Cave House Retreat consists of 3 beautifully restored ancient cave houses. The cave houses are spacious, calming, dry and warm with a constant all year round temperature of approx 18 degrees, cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and full of character with a unique ambiance of tranquillity. To the front there is a lounge area of 60 square metres, an outside covered patio of 35sqm and a swimming pool, all set amidst 20,000 square metres of olive grove. Also on offer at the Retreat is a range of therapeutic treatments(Including Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Massage, Reiki, Indian Head Massage, Thermo Auricular Therapy) which can be booked during your stay. Set in a wonderful idyllic, tranquil location on the Costa Calida, the Retreat offers the ideal environment for a relaxing holiday. The owners Michael & Susan will greet you on arrival, answer your questions and help in anyway.

Fiestas: During Easter, Lorca town has a fabulous procession which is well worth visiting. There is also a splendid Visitors Centre surrounding Lorca Castle.

During February the town of Aguilas has its fiesta over 2 weekends, again usually a spectacular show.

Caravaca de la Cruz, about 1 hours drive away, is the 5th holiest city in the world and well worth a visit.

Mazarron celebrates fiestas during November and December. The most unusual is 5 January when the Three Wise men 'park' their camels in order to enter the Port of Mazarron by boat.

In Ramonete itself, August and early September see our local fiestas.

Places To Visit: El Saladillo, about 20 minutes drive on the MU603 Mazarron-Murcia Road is a natural hot water spring. The spring appeared by chance some years ago when owners of the farm were searching for water. Dozens of people bathe daily, the water temperature is quite hot. Mazarron Town Hall have plans to improve the spring.

Sierra Espuna Natural park, belongs to the municipalities of Totana, Alhama, Lorca, Aledo, Mula and Pliego. Small villages take you back to remote times as the structure of these towns has been kept intact. Aledo is a medieval town, especially worth visiting the castle on the edge of an amazing cliff.

Not far from the Port of Mazarron along the coast is a place which has been until a few years ago a military base - Castillitos. You can see old cannons which were used for defence from the first quarter of the twentieth century, abandoned customers officers barracks. Also on offer are breath taking views to Cartagena and Mazarron and Aguilas (eagles).

Très bonnes vacances !

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé 15 jours dans cette maison très agréable par son côté original, son emplacement à l'extérieur du village sans aucun voisin aux alentours; idéal pour se reposer, beaucoup de calme avec en bruit de fond le son des oiseaux et ddes cigales.
La piscine est indispensable pour se rafraichir et passer de bons moments tous ensemble que ce soit le matin de bonne heure jusque tard dans la soirée. Au top !!!
L'accueil de Michael, le propriétaire, est remarquable et très chaleureux. Nous sommes ravis d'avoir fait sa connaissance. Une personne avec un bel esprit.
Les plages sont très proches, à environ une dizaine de minutes, accès par des chemins; un véhicule genre SUV ou 4X4 est préférable. De super vacances.
