About the property

7 independent double studios, isolated, quiet and tastefully decorated!

Tranquility, Serenity and Rest assured!

Albaricoques Rural is an ecological farmhouse composed of a set of 7 totally independent Mediterranean style country cottages. They are distributed in such a way as to resemble a small Mediterranean village with a privileged location in a natural setting among almond and olives trees. Fully equipped, comfortable and quiet, with capacity for 2-3 people and built in 2009.

The architectural style of our villa found its inspiration in the Catalan architect Josep Lluis Sert, as reflected in his book ¨SERT: Mediterranean Architecture¨. The approach taken during construction is sustainable development and use of clean and renewable energy, with a 100% recycling of water.

Each of them has a living area of approximately 40 square meters, with luxury furnishings rustic wooden ¨Royal Botania¨ brand and comprises:

A superior double bedroom, where you can add an extra bed or cradle, with built-in wardrobe, independent full bathroom, and a fully equipped living-room/kitchen area with sink (brand American Standard), vitro-ceramic plates (Teka), refrigerator-freezer (Teka) and equipment, cooking gear, cleaning products and utensils, portable cloth rack, and pergola or parasol..etc. All tableware is handcrafted by the local artisans from Nijar, a charming local village nearby.

The bedroom has ceiling fan with multiple speeds, light settings and remote control. All the rooms, including the bathroom, are equipped with radiant floor heating. There is a cast-iron wood-burning stove in the living room/kitchen area.

On the outside of each building you will find an individual large terrace, equipped with wooden furniture and with mature trees already in place, mostly olive trees.

Each cottage has free internet / Wi-Fi. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer ( Bosch), with soap and softener, iron and board, all included in the rental price. Pets are welcome.

The construction is ¨bio-climatic¨: all of our cottages are insulated from heat and designed to be breathable in order to maintain pleasant cool temperatures inside. With high- efficiency, low-energy fans and with awning-style windows to allow for cross-ventilation during the summer months and thus guaranteeing a cool environment inside the rooms. During the winter the radiant-floor heating along with a cast-iron wood burning fireplace provides a comfortable temperature.

Located at the edge of a small inland village ¨Los Albaricoques¨, in the center of Cabo de Gata-Nijar Natural Park, the house is located at the foot of a mountain ¨ Cerro Blanco¨, in a property of 2500 square meters facing South-West with beautiful sunsets. The beaches are 10 to 15 minute by car, all well connected. The little town ¨Los Albaricoques¨ is located in Spain's Mediterranean coast, about 25 km northeast of Almeria.

Ideal to spend a few days of calm, rest and tranquility.

Very quiet place!

  • 5 of 5

Albaricoques Rural was a wonderful place to stay! It is set in quiet, serene surroundings (olive orchard surrounds the property) and the accomodations are comfortable and homey. It is close to lovely walks and beautiful secluded beaches are only a few minutes away. The host is knowledgable about the area, friendly, and happy to help with activities or any needs. The week-long stay couldn't have been more perfect!! I highly recommend it.

Tolle Architektur, toller Gastgeber!

  • 5 of 5

Albaricoque liegt sehr zentral, wenn man viele Ausflüge machen möchte. Man ist mit dem Auto in 15-20 Minuten an atemberaubenden Stränden, in 25 Minuten in Almeria und selbst ein Ausflug nach Granada ist bequem fahrbar. Die Anlage selbst ist architektonisch super angelegt, wir hatten das Gefühl, allein zu sein, kein Nachbar, den man wahrnimmt. Das Haus bietet alles, was man braucht. Das Bad ist ein bißchen in die Jahre gekommen, aber alles war super sauber und funktionstüchtig. Besonders erfreut hat uns der Decken-Propeller im Schlafzimmer und das schnelle, gut funktionierende WI-FI! Schade war lediglich, dass wir abends nicht mehr draußen sitzen mochten, wegen kleiner, fliegender Insekten. Gostavo hat dieses Manko durch seine liebenswürdige, offene Art absolut wett gemacht! Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und würden jederzeit wiederkommen, danke, Gostavo!

Wer die Ruhe liebt ist hier genau richtig!!!

  • 5 of 5

Die Bungalows liegen inmitten eines schönen, gepflegten Grundstücks und bieten mit kleinen Terrassen genug Privatsphäre. Sie sind komfortabel, sauber und mit regionalen Gegenständen (Teppiche, Lampen, Geschirr) eingerichtet. Die Küchenausstattung ist perfekt für Selbstversorger. Es ist alles da was man braucht. Der technische Standard ist top, besonders Betten und Dusche.

Die Häuser liegen sehr ruhig am Ortsrand von Albaricoques. Von hier aus erreicht man alle Orte im Naturpark "Cabo de Gata" in ca. 30 Minuten. Wer Ruhe sucht und Strände, Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten nicht unbedingt in unmittelbarer Nähe braucht, ist hier genau richtig.

Der Besitzer Gonzalo wohnt selbst in der Anlage und spricht spanisch und sehr gut englisch. Er ist sehr sympathisch, äußerst hilfsbereit und dabei unaufdringlich. Er hat uns bestens mit Karten, Ausflugs- und Restauranttipps versorgt. Wir haben hier Anfang Oktober wunderschöne Tage verbracht und können diese Häuser wärmstens empfehlen.

Thank you Gonzalo!!!

Claudia und Andreas

- The Natural Park Cabo de Gata-Nijar is a protected marine-terrestrial park in 1987 and declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1997. Born amidst a landscape of great volcanic activity with extreme climate, particularly vegetation makes it a unique region, with some of the most beautiful and deserted beaches of Spain. The climate is dry desert with little rain. Latest beaches without constructions of the Mediterranean coast with crystal clear waters, together with the most hours of sunshine throughout Europe, makes it a vacation paradise all year.

- Your good weather, sunny and warm, makes it an ideal place for sports and other outdoor activities all year round. Lovers of nature and activity will enjoy as much as those seeking tranquility or the sun. The Cabo de Gata is left to discover on foot, by bike, by car or by air paragliding.

- You can practice sports activities such as hiking, climbing, cycling, bike-riding, snorkeling, scuba-diving, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, boating, swimming, hiking, horseback riding and paragliding among other.

- A large number of beaches and small villages invite you to spend a couple of hours relaxing with restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets, bike rental and sports centers with courses and rental of sports equipment (bicycles, snorkeling, canoeing, paragliding. .etc).

- Apricots Cottage is located on the outskirts of apricots, a small village located in the center of the park known by Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western.

- With Almeria airport 15 minutes.

- Granada a 2 hour drive.
