                                                          Peace and quiet, stunning view and relaxing pool.

                                                          The property is near the pretty town of Velez Rubio with its lovely church and square and several authentic Spanish restaurants. The property is just a few miles away in a secluded spot in amongst the olive groves. We found it ideal for rest and recuperation from our hectic everyday lives. The apartment has a lovely large verandah/balcony with room to recline or eat meals at the large table, whilst admiring the stunning views of distant mountains. The only sound was the cicadas! Bliss! The spacious, clean apartment is well-equipped with 3 large bedrooms, each having their own bathroom. The beds were large and comfortable. Kitchen also well-equipped with everything you need. The property has a lovely swimming pool and poolside area with plenty of recliners and sun umbrellas for shade. The pool was immaculately kept, water crystal clear and just the right temperature. Sue the owner and her husband live on-site in their house and we found that excellent as any small hitches or enquiries were resolved immediately. Sue came to meet us in Velez Rubio to guide us to the property as it is secluded and there are many tiny roads in the vicinity. She was friendly and knowledgable about the area, and gave us advice on where to go and how to go about it. Yet she is also discreet, so we felt quite private at the property. It was a good balance and we felt she was keen for us to enjoy our stay here. We had a trip to Granada to see the Alhambra Palace, which is highly recommended, about an hour and a half away. Sue advised us to get our tickets on line first to be sure of gaining admittance. We also enjoyed a visit to nearby Velez Blanco and its market, great views and a castle, very picturesque. We also visited the beautiful turquoise Baza Lakes and there is a spa there where visitors can buy a day pass to use the facilities. Sue recommended us a couple of restaurants in Velez Rubio which were friendly with good food and also explained how to get to the supermarket. The town had a fiesta on the week we visited (first week of August), so we walked around the fairground at night and there was a lovely, family-friendly atmosphere. If you like a relaxing holiday, away from it all in traditional Spain with a kind and friendly but inobtrusive host, this is the place for you and we highly recommend it.

                                                          New Year, Almaria style.

                                                          4 of 5
                                                          A 1980s cliché I know, but 'bijou' springs to mind when trying to define Chris' Apartment. My on-line searched defines bijou as something small but elegant and tasteful. Small it is but it does adequately accomodate four people, and the barbecue and roof terrace area add more space to stretch out and relax (a great place to unwind with a good book!). And it is very quiet. Although the road runs past the 'village' at the end of the lane, it had very little in the way of traffic. And Chris was the consummate host, adding nice touches (well stocked fridge, larder and bathroom cabinates, and even a lighted Christmas tree and bowls of chocolates - which made the children very happy) to be sure we had everything we needed. It is a wee bit remote but Huércal-Overa and is only ten minutes away on a good road, with all you need, banks, supermarkets, restaurants, a hospital and the A7 'motorway'. But if you are looking for a real 'getaway-from-it-all' experience, then yes, I would happily recomend it.
