Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Cortijo Grande - Bella Vista
4 bedroom villa sleeping up to 8 in a beautiful, secluded location
Set in the beautiful & up-market valley of Cortijo Grande, one of the most beautiful spot in Andalusia, the Bella Vista with its' fantastic views from the huge terrace and the very private pool offers exceptional features for wonderful holidays. The location overlooks the first fairway of the golf course as well as being only 15 minutes from the ancient and fascinating Moorish village of Mojacar on it's hill, and the long sandy beaches below.
Bars and restaurants abound both in the valley as well as in neighbouring communities such as Cabrera, Turre, Mojacar, Garrucha and Vera. Further afield there are many places to visit including Granada with the famous Alhambra just a couple of hours or so distant.
While the principal attractions of the area are the beaches and the wide range of golf courses, the wild beauty of the area encourages many activities. The Cabrera mountains and the lovely surrounding area, in particular Cortijo Grande itself, are ideal for walking and cycling, while the local area offers riding, tennis, petanque, water sports, fishing etc. Cortijo Grande is ideal for golf as the first tee is only a short walk from the villa. There are several other courses within a short drive.
Local communities include neighbouring Turre and Cabrera, while a little further away are Mojacar, Mojacar Playa, Garrucha and Vera. There are lively weekly markets in most of these places and the area abounds with good restaurants, from basic and inexpensive to sophisticated locales with international cuisine of a high order.
The beaches are well kept and there is none of the intense commercial exploitation to be found on other Costas. They are friendly low-key places, ideal for families.
Spectator sports are also available in season. We have 2 Primera Liga football team in Almeria within 1hours drive,and for those who wish to experience traditional bull fights, there are always local events in the season. Within reasonable distances are the historic city of Granada, seat of Andalusia's Moorish past, where the Alhambra is a wonder to be seen. Nearer, is Mini Hollywood, wonderful fun for the family with it's staged gunfights etc. Mini Hollywood reflects the fairly recent past when many Spaghetti Westerns were shot in the area, as well as parts of the film Lawrence of Arabia. In Cortijo Grande itself, just a few years ago, much of the film Raiders of the Lost Ark was made, with Sean Connery etc.
Unless you drive from the UK, you will arrive at either Almeria, Murcia or Alicante airports. Take the E15 motorway to exit 520 then the local road direction Turre. We will arrange to meet you.
