About the property

1 Bedrooms, Two Bathrooms With Stunning Countryside Views

Rincon de Juan.

Charming countryside hideaway nestled in a peaceful hamlet.

From the moment you walk through the rustic gate you will be greeted by the sweet smell of honeysuckle growing wildly in the entrance way, hanging grape vines and old fashioned Spanish charm.

Our two-bedroomed apartment is situated in a nest of six houses only fifteen minutes from the market town of Huercal Overa. Where you will find all the amenities that you will require for your stay,bars restaurants, theatre, cinema,health centres and much more.

Our nearest village is Santa maria de Nieva hosting a chemist,super market and two bars which serve a vast array of Spanish food and drinks.

We are nestled in the mountain region of Los velez's some 800m above sea level with easy access to two major motorways the Ap7 and the P92.

Although we are not near the coast,it is a 35 minutes drive to San Juan de Terreros. I am sure that country lovers or mountain bike enthusiasts will find plenty to do as we are surrounded by Ramblas and hill climbs in every direction, or just take time out to read a book on our rooftop chill out zone,with a chilled glass of wine of course.

The property consists of an open plan lounge kitchen diner on the ground floor with a small but compact bathroom.

The main bedroom has an en suite reached via a marble stairway with wrought iron railings passing over a minstrel gallery and into a double sinked wash area with large walk in shower and toilet.This area is tastefully decorated with a Moroccan theme.The main bedroom also has hot and cold air conditioning.

The lounge area has a leather settee and two leather rocking chairs, t.V.,stereo hot and cold air conditioning and many old pictures for you to muse over.

The kitchen is fully fitted with oven and hob,fridge,microwave and sink.A full range of cups,plates and general kitchen utensils .Enjoy your meals sitting around a large rustic kitchen table.

The outside area is finished in local stone slabs, which are stepped to make easier access.There are flower beds for you to see ,mostly laid with cactus.

As there are quite a number of steps within the property it is advised that access could be restricted to certain people. Cat lovers are always welcomed and be prepared to greet them at any time. There is a sitting area for you to sample a taste of outside living.

The roof terrace,with amazing countryside views,is reached by a stair case to the side,hosting a barbecue with built in table and benches for evening cooking.

Also the roof terrace has a wooden built covered fly screen area with a table and chairs, settee and chill out zone surrounded by bamboo screening.

For your added convenience we can also offer a selection of home made tapas to enjoy, for those' cant be bothered to cook moments.' a list of which is displayed in your welcome pack .To whet your appetite why not consider a roasted fig and blue cheese bake with a reduction of Pedro Jimenez sauce!

We look forward to welcoming you and wish you a pleasant stay with us.

About chris large

I grew up in a tiny Kentish village surrounded by past houses and hop fields. My parents both worked on farms. My mum was noted in the village for taking a large bull for its morning walks.

Having grown up in farming community i have always dreamed of having my own rural property, which i now have in Spain. I would love you to become part of my dream.

Having played professional football in the late sixties for crystal palace i have tried to keep as active as i can ,running marathons mountain biking and walking to name just a few, so feel free to join me in some sporting pursuits.

chris large purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Why chris large chose Huércal-Overa

This property ticked all the right boxes, it reminded me of where i grew up, old fashioned charm a peaceful setting and above all freedom.

What makes this farmhouse unique

This property is part of spanish history. If walls could talk think of the many stories that they could recollect - families laughing and playing together before the days of television and radio.These older properties in the country regions were often the meeting places for song and dance, every home seemed to have a guitar and someone keen to play. Dancers were never a problem, with even the youngest urged to join in.To help the proceedings. Home made wine would flow.

Listen to the walls and find there secrets

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.

Although the property is not situated close to the beach, a visit to Mojacar is highly recommended a town split into two parts: the playa offers all that you would wish for in a seaside resort and the pueblo perched on a mountainside has a host of winding narrow walkways and at night this twinkling village springs to life. There are more details of places to visit in your welcome pack.
