Within the main living room there is a sofa bed to accommodate 2 extra guests.

In all 6 people can be accommodated comfortably.

There are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.1 double and the other a twin.Both have Air conditioning.

There are 2 patios one facing East to catch the morning sun. The other facing South West to maximise the wonderful Spanish sunshine from early afternoon till late evening.

Vera Playa is located on the Costa Almeria in Andalusia - at approximately the same latitude as the most northerly parts of Africa.

Vera Playa is named after the small town of Vera, which lies around 8kms inland from the coast. The nearest town, however, is Garrucha, a busy fishing port about 5 kms to the south of Vera Playa. Garrucha is an attractive and growing town with a wide range of restaurants, shops and other facilities. 

Vera Playa is a relatively new resort, which only started to be developed in the 1980s, before which it was pretty much untouched. Legend has it that this is where Hannibal’s elephants landed in the Roman age. 

The beach at Vera Playa runs north-south for 7kms, from just south of Villaricos down through Vera Playa itself and on to Puerto Rey and Garrucha

As with most modern coastal resorts Vera Playa offers good facilities including bars, restaurants, supermarkets and adequate public transport options. For more options you can walk north from Vera Playa to the small harbour village of Villaricos or south to the larger fishing town of Garrucha, which has excellent facilities and dining options.

Vera Playa is also home to a large water park, which provides fun for all the family, with lots of rides, slides, swimming pools, play areas and restaurants.

era Playa enjoys a perfect all-year round Mediterranean climate, as does the whole of the Costa Almeria. In the sub-tropical environment temperatures rarely fall below 18ºC. During the summer months the temperature rises above 30ºC and July and August can get much hotter, dropping again around mid-September to a milder, but still warm and enjoyable 23ºC-27ºC degrees. The winters are mild and mostly dry, although the winter evenings can get chilly.

The resort is well-situated just 13 kms from the Autovia del Mediterraneo (Mediterranean motorway) and is easily accessible from the local airports Almeria (nearest) Murcia and Alicante which serve the area.

Due to the excellent climate the area attracts Golfers, cyclists and holiday makers all year round

Very nice well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment has everything and more for your holiday. The pool and surrounding area were lovely, very good beach/ sunloungers provided in the apartment. Large patio area, we used the BBQ. No problems with Peter, the owner, very helpful.

The only reason I did not give 5 stars is you only have a couple of restaurants within easy walking distance, we used the car but if you are OK walking there are plenty with a 20 minute stroll.

The Yaho Alta over the road is outstanding both in quality and price

Beaches with a couple of minutes drive.

We hope to use it again.

perfectas vacaciones en Vera

  • 5 of 5

La experiencia ha sido inolvidable. Han sido vacaciones en familia.

La propiedad es un buen apartamento perfectamente equipado, con dos terrazas en las que hemos hecho la estancia.

La urbanización es respetuosa con sus vecinos, con dos piscinas.

La zona de Vera playa es perfecta para veranear por su tranquilidad.

El propietario muy amable y un perfecto anfitrión.

Gracias Peter por estas vacaciones.

Great Holidays, Vey Good Moments!

  • 4 of 5

First of all, a word to all the hospitality, attention and care that hosts showed with us! We truly had 2 beautiful weeks here. Friendly, completely functional and very pleasant apartment! El Faro is great and people are also very nice. We will always remember all good moments we had here, as the sunshine glass of wine in the garden while appreciating our 3 children at the playground. The swimming pool is also very good. Close to the beach, with restaurants, supermarkets and some shops around. We really recomend Peter Whittam, Vera Playa and the Mediterranean atmosphere! Joana G.
