The Andalucian village of Bedar, established by the Moors, is tucked away high in the Sierra de los Filabres. Its charm lies in its narrow streets, its white village houses adorned with blossoms, and its endless sunshine. There are 5 restaurants, a bank, a mini-supermarket, a general store, a doctor's surgery, a chemist and a large municipal swimming pool open during the summer months. Walking in the blissful quiet of the countryside is one of the joys of staying in Bedar, and this part of Andalucia is a haven for the tortoise, the crested lark, the wild boar, the ibix and the Spanish fox. There is nothing the Spanish love more than fiestas which appear at regular intervals throughout the year and you cannot enter the village without saying hola to everyone you meet. Bedar is 20 minutes away from the resort of Mojacar Playa and Mojacar Pueblo (Mojacar village) with its panoramic views. Nearby is the village of El Pinar, and small towns Los Gallardos, Turre & the fishing port Garrucha.
