January at Villaricos

4 of 5
My wife and I spent 3 weeks enjoying some winter sun, golf, sightseeing and meeting friends and relatives. We found the accommodation a perfect size for us, a double bedroom, twin bedroom, bathroom with shower & bath, alley kitchen and ample sized lounge/diner. Externally and nice sized terrace to sit and enjoy the morning sun while having alfresco breakfast. The apartment is secure and within gated, locked and well landscaped courtyards, the secure parking is also an added benefit. We found the location at the Northern end of the village ideal for a short walk into the village and directly opposite the small harbour, also great location to commence our walk along the sea promenade from the harbour all the way to the quaint little marina at the other end of the village. Also, to be away from the hustle and bustle of the larger resorts of Garrucha and Mojacar, though within easy distance to visit for the day. Also within easy reach, just over an hour away is Puerto Mazarron along a lovely drive on the scenic coastal route towards Aguilas, through San Juan Torreros using, as I recall, the RM332 all the way. We played golf at four different courses within easy reach, good quality though not easy courses to score well. These courses were, Desert springs, Lorca, Aguilon & Marina. Well worth a visit, the village really comes to life on Sundays, the market day, when the village becomes packed full of visitors, locals etc. and all the bars & restaurants open their doors. We will be revisiting as soon as we can.

A month of sun in mid winter!

5 of 5
Casita Sophie is a small but well maintained house ideal for a small family or couple. It is located in Playa Laguna within easy walking distance to local amenities which include a number of small supermarkets, restaurants, cycling shops and bars. It is also within a 10 to 15 minutes walk (or 5 mins cycle) from Garrucha along a nice and well maintained promenade. The house was clean, well equipped and boasted a lovely roof top terrace for sunbathing and sundowners. The house is south facing so the porch area was a real sun trap and great for breakfasting. Tony and Julie were very helpful both prior to our arrival and during our stay. We shall be returning next year. Darren and Ohnmar

Lovely beach house

5 of 5
We stayed at the beach house at the end of January and found it wonderfully situated and close to amenities/supermarket. Lovely promenade to walk along that stretched the length of the beach towards the castle. The house itself had everything we needed for our stay and Luis was more than willing to accommodate some extra requests and called during the week to make sure we had no problems. The house is in a peaceful area at the edge of Aguilas with lovely terraces for outside dining and to enjoy the view of the ocean and down towards the castle. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone. Beautiful place!
