*The climate in Spain naturally heats pool water to a really enjoyable temperature between June & September. For the remainder of the year the weather is lovely but the pool does drop to 12 degrees in the winter. With our heated pool, you can enjoy swimming in the winter season in temperature of min 25 degrees. When selecting this option it is essential you use the pool cover in the evenings when the pool is not being used. This is a chargeable optional extra so please let us know if you want this option added to your package. Please also be aware that it takes 24 hours to raise the temperature by 4-5 degrees when the pool is covered, so let us know as early as possible.
**Hot Tub included in rental July & August. Please request this optional extra when booking.
We, Donna and Steve, are married with 2 children and we live in Berkshire UK. We purchased this house when we fell in love with Costa Almeria and the traditional Spanish experience you will enjoy here.
Steve purchased this villa in 2015
If you are looking for a luxury villa fully equipped with everything you need for a fabulous Spanish Holiday Casa Donna-Marie is for you.
The climate in Spain naturally heats pool water to a really enjoyable temperature between June & September. For the remainder of the year the weather is lovely but the pool can be cool at 19 degrees. With our heated pool, you can enjoy swimming 12 months of the year. Heating the pool is an optional extra, so ask for this when you book.
This is my second visit to Casa Donna Marie and again we were not disappointed. The villa is superb a home from home with everything you need. The pool and garden areas are fabulous with great sun beds and seating areas. We also explored the area more on this visit by using the local bus service and found some lovely places to eat. Will Definately be coming back soon.
A wonderful villa in a gated community in a beautiful corner of Andalucia in Spain. The private pool is so inviting and welcome on hot summer days. The villa is well equipped, very clean and can accommodate both families or couples. The outside eating area and gas BBQ is perfect for warm evenings and the hot tub great for relaxing. A large supermarket is nearby with a tapas bar and restaurant on the complex. A few minutes drive takes you to the heart of Spain, villages and small towns full of character as well as uncrowded beaches safe for swimming - with the obligatory beach cafe bars. A few more minutes takes you to busier tourist resorts with a mix of European visitors. Highly recommended for a lovely villa holiday!
We visited the property in May for 12 nights with our two very young children. The villa was amazing. It had everything we could need and more including a travel cot, highchair, cool boxes and other equipment for the pool and beach.
The attention to detail was fantastic and everything has been thought about carefully. It really was a home from home.
There is so much space that it made it really enjoyable rather than us all being crammed in a hotel room somewhere.
The kids loved the pool and the hot tub was perfect for unwinding after a great day in the sun.
We are looking forward to staying at the villa again in the not so distant future and would like to thank Donna and Steve for all of their help with us booking our holiday and staying at their property.
Pool is fabulous and the addition of a hot tub is the cherry on the cake. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay
This is the second time i have stayed at casa donna marie and that speaks volumes. Stayed at other apartments in the same complex but they do not compare with the quality on offer here. Private pool and hot tub are fantastic and would recommend anyone to book this villa.
This was our second visit to this fabulous villa. The owners have added a magnificent heated pool, large hot tub (37'c!) and beautifully landscaped gardens since our previous visit. All amenities have been finished to the very highest of standards both inside and outside of the property. We very much look forward to returning again soon.
The Villa is a 20 minute walk from an 8km long blue flag beach with stunning mountain views. The local fishing port of Garrucha has wonderful fresh fish caught daily by the locals and served in many local restaurants with alfresco dining in abundance.
One of the nicest places to visit for food or shopping is the historic town of Mojacar which is situated high up overlooking the entire area with panoramic views of 6 to 7 miles in all directions. Visits at night are particularly breath taking.
Mojacar Playa offers stunning Beaches and sea views from its many Beach Restaurants and Bars.
This area is also very popular with skiers looking to blend skiing and sunbathing in the one holiday. With the slopes of the Sierra Nevada within a 2 hour drive, you could be skiing in the morning and relaxing by the pool or on the beach by the afternoon.
Golfers are also attracted to this area with a choice of 5 golf courses within a 20 minute drive, the closest being Desert Springs where celebrities like Ian Botham and Daily Thompson play.
If you fancy some day trips the 1st place I would recommend is Fort Bravo which is a 1 hour drive away but very easy to find. Many Spaghetti Westerns were filmed at Fort Bravo where you can explore the Wild West and get involved. Dress up as a cowboy / girl and have your photos taken, take a ride on a Horse or in a Stage Coach, watch the Wild West Show. The kids and adults will love it.
Secondly I would recommend you go to the zoo which is very extensive and covers a huge area.
Third place would be the local superb water park, which has attractions for the very young and old.
My fourth recommendation is the local karting circuit which offers 2 seater cars for the young to join mum or dad in a race through to high cc engines for the more experienced racers.
Finally, the area is awash with water sports and also extremely popular with walkers and cyclists.
Playa Vera is the gateway to Andalucía and very proud of its traditional Spanish feel with no high rise buildings and a traditional relaxed atmosphere. You have a choice of 3 airports, with Amleria 45 mins, Murcia 60 mins and Alicante 2 hours away. All low cost airlines fly to all three, so you have a wide variety of choice.
Costa Almeria in Southern Spain is located between the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean Sea. It sits in Spain's South Eastern corner and is an area of rugged cliffs and stunning sandy beeches. Costa Almeria is the hidden gem of the Costa's, where you won't find the high rise developments which characterise its more popular neighbours. Playa Vera is a low key but vibrant tourist resort full of low rise developments with a traditional Andalusian white wash finish.
In Costa Almeria you will experience an authentic Spanish life style in what is described as the gateway to Andalusia. You can explore the many traditional Spanish villages with their historic buildings, tapas bars and restaurants serving traditional Andalusian cuisine. With traditional weekly markets in local squares, to fresh caught fish at the local fishing ports, you can relax and unwind in the "Real Spain".
Costa Almeria is Spain's warmest and dryest region. Average rain fall is 20cm with 300 days of sunshine per year. This is a location you can enjoy sunshine through out the winter months as well as the summer.
With the introduction of new motor ways and toll roads, Costa Almeria has really started to open up and is a really popular weekend retreat for many Spanish city dwellers and expat seeking a more low key traditional Spanish lifestyle. With flight times from London's many airports to Almeria a short 2+ hours, this is an ideal location for short breaks from the UK. You can also fly into Murcia, Granada or Alicante.
