Garrucha town is a very Spanish fishing village, commercial port and leisure port. The fishing industry is thriving and you can see the boats bringing back their daily catch to sell to the many local restaurants. There is a great Friday market which extends through many of the towns main streets. The shops are varied and interesting.There is live music played nightly in the restaurants.
Not far along the coast is Mojacar which has a very different feel. Here you will enjoy the hustle and bustle of a seaside resort with many English shops and bars.Restaurants of all flavours are available - Indian,Chinese,Argentinian,Mexican,Texan (Cowboy Cocina is one of our favourites) Fusion,English and,oddly enough,many good Spanish ! A very good bus service is available along the coast from Vera to the far end of Mojacar. Nightlife along Mojacar Playa goes on until the early hours during the high season.
Above and behind the playa is the very interesting old mountain town of Mojacar Pueblo with many shops and bars.
Altogether this is a lovely part of Andalucia with something for everyone.
For the last 8 years we have lived in Spain in the Sierra de Los Filabres (Mountains of the Filters) about 45 minutes inland from Casita Sophie.Before our move to Spain we lived in Cheshire. Having travelled all over the UK with our work,we are now retired.We have 1 daughter who is married with 1 daughter (our granddaughter)and lives in Cheshire.
Our main reason for buying this house was because we live inland we wanted a holiday home near the coast.Having guests stay to enjoy our house is a bonus to us.It is very close to the beach which can be reached on foot in 4 minutes by Tony and 5 minutes by Julie ! It takes a similar time by car by a different route.There are also all kinds of restaurants and facilities in the area including the AquaPark and an excellent bus service. The house is well laid out and people say it is larger than it looks in the photos.The Residencial is very attractive and is maintained to very high standards.
We like the fact that, whilst most of the properties on the complex face each other,our property looks out over a rambla (river bed). The roof terrace is a good place to top up your tan, cook a meal on the BBQ and eat your food.Then relax in the evening with a very inexpensive bottle of wine or beer.
Free WIFI included.
UKTV and Spanish TV available.
Air Con available as an extra cost - to be agreed.
Our 3rd holiday here and as perfect as our previous 2. Tony and Julie, the owners, think of everything to make this house a 'home from home'. Very clean and comfortable - could not be bettered. Garrucha has multitude of great places to eat - we were spoilt for choice. This holiday house is in the perfect spot to explore the beautiful coastline. We would give it 6 stars if we could! Pete & Pauline
Beautiful place to stay! Lovely and clean and really well equipped. Mornings spent on front terrace and many an afternoon on the roof terrace. Great beach chairs, cool box and even towels provided! The kitchen has everything you need, ice packs in the freezer which certainly came in handy even in April. The lounge area easily seats 4 people, with two sofas and a dining table. The bed is really comfortable (unusual in holiday accommodation) The house overlooks the 'rambla' and we were serenaded at night by mating frogs! (So we were told) Around 5 minutes walk to beach, a couple of bars and restaurants, and an easy pleasant stroll into Garrucha.
The owners Tony and Julie have made this house into a lovely holiday home -it is a really comfortable place to stay, and we will definitely be back! Thankyou
Arrived lunch time and Julie and Tony were there to meet us and give us all the info we needed. The house was lovely and clean, fully equipped with everything and more that you could need. Probably one of the best spots in the development because it wasn't overlooked at the front (facing a rambla). The house has a lovely sunny patio where we enjoyed breakfast, plus a large roof terrace which receives the sun all day until it gets low. Fully equipped with lots of fans to keep us cool too. The house is just a very short walk to a fabulous promenade where there are bars, restaurants and you can walk into garucha within about 10 mins. Remember to visit Vera and Bedar for lovely (and cheap) tapas. Lovely places to try are la Terrazza Carmona in Vera and La Tropezienne (French pastries and delicious coffee) in Mojacar Playa, and The Argentinian Aberdeen and Hereford steak restaurant on the main road into garucha, just a five minute walk away. Also the Bistro on the sea front offers something a bit different if you are all Tapa'd out!
Thank you so much Julie & Tony for a lovely welcome, a wonderful stay and your thoughtful wedding card. We had a wonderful, restful week in glorious sunshine! The large roof terrace was lounged on for many a good hour - Steve was very grateful for the gas BBQ! The kitchen was amazingly well equipped and the convenience of wheeling the thoughtfully provided, very light, beach loungers and cool box the 5 minutes walk to the beach rather than having to drive round was great (making an afternoon beer or two possible!) We loved the pool and pool area which was very clean, a good size and on weekdays we enjoyed being the only ones in it. The memory foam bed was a welcome surprise and the most comfortable bed we've ever slept on holiday! The bedroom ceiling fan was so quiet we could happily sleep with it on and with the windows open and fly screens across this made for a very comfortable night time temperature. Summary - everything you need for a relaxing, comfortable week in the sun. Many thanks again.
Karen & Steve
we arrived early januaury from the uk and stayed till end of february. Sometimes a bit cool but still left with a tan. The current owners were very obliging and the house was equiped with all we needed. we came for a break and change of scenery and to escape the grey skies of the uk, we were not dissapointed. People we spoke to said it was much busier in the summer time and obviously everything should be open. Not everyone has the same idea for a good holiday so if anyone should ask me i would suggest a little homework first, give the owners a call. But without a doubt I would come again.
many thanks to the new owners Tony and Julie.
The property far exceeded our expectations - it's roomy and comfortable and although there were only two of us, four people could happily live together. Rosa met us with the key and was helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
The house is on a small complex, which in March, was extremely quiet and peaceful. The front terrace is a great place to start the day with breakfast as is benefits from morning sun. The beach is literally 5 minutes walk away and Vera Playa only 5 minutes by car. The roof terrace is a great place to relax in the evening sun.
You can walk to the Mercadona in Garrucha and there are two other large supermarkets within 5 minutes drive.
Take a trip out to Bedar for lunch - only 25 minutes by car and you're in a tiny Spanish hillside village.
The pool is only open in the summer months, but we were happy to walk to the beach.
The house is situated on Vera Playa on the outskirts of Garrucha which is an old Spanish fishing village, lying between Mojacar and Vera. Around the marina are plenty of bars and restaurants to suit most tastes. The area is renowned for its fabulous seafood. In high season the Garrucha promenade has a late night market with craft stalls and gifts that is great for a stroll after an evening meal. There are plenty of pavement cafe bars in which to watch the world go by.
Local activities include water sports, fishing, deep sea diving, horse riding, 5 golf courses, go-carting and also a water park approximately 1 mile away. There is a bus which takes you straight there and back along the coast to Mojacar.
Mini-Hollywood is only a 45 minute drive away. This is where such films as The Good The Bad and The Ugly were made. There is a well maintained Zoo and the price includes use of the pool.
Golf: There are a number of excellent golf courses within easy reach of Garrucha e.g.. Valle del Este is an 18 hole PGA golf course, the Indiana Course on the Desert Springs Golf Resort and Marina Golf in Mojacar which offers an 18 hole, par 72 course. There is enough to satisfy the most ardent golfer.
The property has a STRICTLY NO SMOKING policy.
