Despite there not being a lot of English spoken in this whole experience, we had a fabulous time everywhere we went.
The Apartment is very clean and spacious and has all the items to make the holiday go smoothly. Nice touches like a really decent hair dryer and beach towels.
Most rooms had great air con which we used sparingly, but were really necessary as even mid September the temperatures were high.
Great location, really, barely five minutes walk to the wonderful beach and countless restaurants. A word of warning regarding the restaurants though, most open very late in the evening, some as late as 8:30 or 9pm. But this is, of course, the locals way and we quickly adapted.
Conversations with Juan and the lovely Fabiola were conducted through WhatsApp and google translate, which added to the charm.
Lovely terrace and very clean communal pool were nice to use.
Thanks again, Juan, for the use of your lovely home. We treated it as if it was ours....
We loved coming back to the flat after spending busy days out and about exploring the region as it was so quiet and peaceful. We particularly enjoyed watching the sunrise from the kitchen terrace and listening to the neighbourhoood cockerels competing from the various little fincas dotted around the hillside.
The accommodation is thoughtfully decorated and well appointed. We didn't miss not having TV or internet at all. If you really want to 'get connected', you can use the free wifi from the tourist info office in the plaza. You have to sit out on the one of the benches as the signal doesn't quite reach the flat. The water from the fuente is good too if you don't like the slightly chemical taste of the tap water.
Acess to the beaches from Nijar is really easy and we fell in love with the more isolated calas along the headland from Genoveses beach. Campohermoso, while not exactly living up to its name was an eye-opener as it shows another facet of Almeria.
Definitely worth the effort is the walk up the valley to Huebro. We chatted to a elderly resident (quite a character) and had a drink at the only bar in the village.
We wished we had another week as there is so much to see and do in the area. There's little doubt that we will be coming back! Muchas gracias.
