About the property

3 bedrooms for 7 persons, terraces overlooking the sea, beach 100 meters

The Casa de la Media Luna (House of the Half Moon) is located right inside the Cabo de Gata Natural Park (in the province of Almería, southern Spain), only 200 meters away from the lighthouse standing on a geographical tip. Situated in an ideal location, the virginal Spanish southeast, the house condenses all the needs to relax and to enjoy the unspoiled beaches, intimate coves as well as volcanic mountains and surrounding cliffs.

Casa de la Media Luna is the ideal location to disconnect completely from civilisation. Perfect for trekking and water-related sports lovers. Relaxation, peace and quiet are fully guaranteed throughout its desert like natural setting, since there are no major nearby buildings nor mass tourism, only a couple of fishermen villages. All of the Casa de la Media Luna rooms look right over the sea and cliffs. The Lighthouse Beach (Playa del Faro), made out of virgin sand and crystal clear waters, is right under the house within a three minute walk. Picture yourself on our front porch terrace facing the sea, the lighthouse and the cliffs for a barbecued meal during the day and for a dinner under the stars at night.

The Casa de la Media Luna, which belongs to a private community of six villas, is located at an elevated plain surrounded by volcanic mountains and rocks, in front of the Mediterranean sea and 250 metres away from the Cabo de Gata lighthouse, the landmark spot of the natural park. Within a three minute walk (at a 100 metres distance) from the house, we go down to the welcoming Corralete beach, popularly known as the Lighthouse Beach), (Playa del Faro), composed of sand and crystal-clear water, girdled by rocky cliffs, a natural habitat of seagulls and other characteristic fauna.

Right on the same rock where the lighthouse stands, we can admire the captivating beauty of the Mermaids Reef (Arrecife de las Sirenas), where volcanic rocks conquer the sea, which allows sea and land to mingle in absolute harmony. Continuing north from the reef, the coastline breaks into diverse coves and intimate beaches such as Cala Arena, Cala Rajá, Cala Vela Blanca…etc. All this area is also within walking distance from the house.

Less than 100 metres from the house, we find the Bar-Restaurante El Faro, managed by descendants of original local inhabitants. Here, you may taste exquisite paellas, Moorish tea at sunset and enjoy the friendly, attentive service on the terrace with magnificent views.

The closest village to the house is La Almadraba de Monteleva (Las Salinas), 3 kms away. After this town 8 kms away from the house, we arrive at San Miguel de Cabo de Gata village, a more populated town which offers more services, such as a market, a health centre, a pharmacy, a bank branch with ATM, a small library, a couple of hair salons, a cyber café with a mini-video store and some restaurants and cafeterias, as well as a couple of small super markets. A flea market is held on Saturday mornings.

The house was built on a rock in 1975. Mediterranean style fits perfectly into the natural environment in which it is located. It has two terraces and all rooms, except the bathroom, with sea and cliffs.
