An absolutely stunning house, perfect for getting away from the everyday!

5 of 5
A very modern house which feels exciting to vacation in. Spacious, fully equipped, wonderful fresh water pool, and huge amounts of space particularly outside on the tiered terrace with great view of the mountain and other stylish homes. Stylishly furnished with some quirky details which give you a lovely impression of the owner. The owner, Carmen, is incredibly helpful and friendly, and provided great info for the stay. Very comfortable, immaculate and perfect for a get away with style and comfort. Very friendly and helpful housekeeper.

This is a beautifully renovated house with an immaculate interior, set in stunning surroundings.

5 of 5
The pictures don't do justice to how amazing this house is. It has everything you'd need and the setting is very special. The morning sun rises to the front of the house over the wild flowers and succulents of the garden and sets behind the mountains which can be seen from the back garden. The back garden feels like an inside outside oasis room where you can relax, eat and cool off in the pool. And there are multiple tables to sit and eat different meals at. Being inside the Cabo de Gata park feels special and the nearby beaches are testament to the areas appeal. We cycled into the mountains and there are amazing routes through old railway lines and up into the hills or the climb up to the observatorys where you feel on top of the whole region. Don't miss tapas at the bar in Fernan Perez which is a short stroll away where your euros seem to stretch a very long way! And thanks to Adela for her restaurant recommendations, La Gallineta is definitely on our repeat visit list. We'd love to come back again and thanks for sharing your beautiful house with us.
