I bought the house on impulse , it was in bad condition and i spent 10 years restoring it , nore as a labour of love , however we have several dogs and consequently wanted to live in the country, so reluctantly we started letting it in the 90s and have been doing so ever since

Aurora Diaz purchased this house in 1979

You will haver to look for along time to find a genuinely old Spanish house near the sea with very thick walls and high ceilings, to be cool in summer and warm in winter ..with 3 terraces all with superb views of the Mediterranean

you can walk to the sea with children and run no risk of traffic ..you can shop without using the car , you can park , the neighbours all greet each other , theres no big city anonymity as this is as Spanish as it gets

Charming Home and Village

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 28-May-2012
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2011
We spent two and a half weeks at this charming house and loved every minute of it. As others have said, Carboneras is an unspoiled village with enough to do to keep you busy, lots of good hiking nearby and some other interesting towns further afield. We enjoyed being part of the village daily life--the visits from the itinerant baker and the gas truck, the markets and shopping at the supermarkets. Sitting by the beach, even in December was fun and invigorating.
The house is very comfortable, with everything you need in the kitchen and lots of room for comfortable sitting. There is a good supply of books--novels, travel books--in English and Spanish and connection to the internet was really useful for us. Thanks to the owner for his immediate response to queries for help and his knowledge of the local places of interest. We highly recommend this place for a relaxing holiday.

Great town, great house!

A superb cool and spacious house for an excellent week in Carboneras. There were only four of us and it was great to have so much room, I am not sure it would sleep 10 comfortably though! We spent most of our waking hours in the kitchen and the lower terrace (yes there are two!), weather was great in mid-April. You can watch the clouds of swifts screeching around the town in the morning and evening. We really couldn't have asked for better. Carboneras itself is that rarity on the Mediterranean coast - a real living, working Spanish town populated by Spanish people (thanks probably to the very unobtrusive cement factory/power station/fishing port which have helped it retain its population), just enough restaurants and bars for variety and in April at least scarcely another English voice to be heard. A fantastic coast and beaches and rolling hills. We would be back tomorrow if we could.

Superbe maison, grande et bien aménagée, où l'on peut être nombreux sans se gêner ( nous étions 8 et encore bien de la place )
Chouette ville en bord de Mer (où John Lennon a écrit "Strawberry fields for ever", , quand même! ), accueillante, tranquille et moins touristique que la région. Superbes paysages.
Idéal pour des vacances peinardes, dépaysantes, ensoleillées.
Propriétaire est très accueillant, sympa. Pas de problème
Recommandé ++++
----------------------------------------------
Superb house, large and well appointed, where they can be numerous without embarrassment (we were 8 and still the place)
Owl city on the waterfront (where John Lennon wrote "Strawberry fields for ever", though!), cozy, quiet and less touristy than the region. Beautiful landscapes.
Ideal for holidays cushy, exotic, sunny.
Owner is very friendly, nice. No problem

Townhouse in Carboneras, Almeria

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 18-Sep-2008
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2008
July this year, my young daughter and I visited Carboneras, a traditional Spanish fishing village on the coast of Almeria.

Unlike, a statement I read from a recognised ‘travel bible’ and also a very poor review by someone who could not have been there, Carboneras is far from being industrial.

What I found was a charming, eclectic close community of people who took pride in their village and welcomed you as one of them in their many soirees.

The place we chose to stay in was a townhouse in the heart of the village and a short walk to a beautiful unspoilt beach, was far beyond my expectations.

The owner of the property, had put a lot of attention to detail in keeping with the traditional ‘Moorish’ theme of the area, everywhere you looked were dazzled with interesting features.

This would suit someone into eclectic interiors. My favourite was the centre ‘atrium’ of the building and the upstairs bathroom. Unlike one chaps view of his supposed stay, the dishwasher was not in the middle of the kitchen as he claimed, but in line with the rest of the kitchen units.

The owner was very helpful with his knowledge on places. One of those places was a bar/restaurant on the seafront that served the best grilled fish.

All in all we both had a great time and would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Carboneras enjoys a Spanish way of life, which has not changed as other coastal Spanish towns. A traditional Spanish village with no high rise buildings and narrow streets, there are shops, bars, restaurants and unspoilt beaches great for scuba diving. The climate is warm all year round and has the most sunshine of anywhere in Europe. Of the many characteristics of this area, its contrasts, film sets & sceneries, its wildlife & history, none surprises the visitor as much as its light. A pure, intense light which gives Almería, along with St John of Acre, Athens and Syracuse, the highest number of daylight hours in the world (3100 hr of sunshine per year).

Along its coastline we can find villages ideal for relaxing and hidden-away places where nature reigns. The quality of light and the unique landscape have enchanted film directors: from the dunes of Cabo de Gata–Níjar Natural Park, where Lawrence of Arabia was filmed, to the Tabernas desert, site of so many spaghetti westerns.

Other Activities: Granada 2hr away for skiing
