About the property

Casa Benedict

Casa Benedict is a small holiday retreat comprising 2 villas & 2 apartments (Important - to see the other units click on multiple units), so available as individual units or ideal for family & friends to share whilst being independent.

Situated in peaceful surroundings near a typical Spanish village, 5 Min by car to the Resort and Beaches of Mojacar and the fishing port of Garrucha. Our Villas and Apartments are set in a garden of three acres planted with oranges, lemons, olives, figs, etc. Large patio area with barbecue around the swimming pool, lovely ornamental garden pond and gazebo for relaxing in the shade.

Good security with electronic gate access, guests provided with remote. The property is newly built and provides everything you should need

T.V, microwave, washing machine, fridge, iron, etc. Two bedrooms, 1 double, 1 twin, with bed settee in the lounge area to accommodate up to six people per villa. Pool and facilities only used by the villas and apartments so very private and quiet. Panoramic mountain views in all directions.

We have installed a 2.4 metre satellite dish and are still able to receive British T.V. channels

Locality: An enchanting Moorish village, nestled between the Mediterrasnean and the Sierra Cabrera mountains, with narrow winding streets of whitewashed houses opening out into small Plazas. Mojacar is an ideal base from which to explore the real Andalucia- the countryside and villages surrounding Mojacar have altered very little over the centuries. Mojacar's gently shelving beach is over 4 kilometres long, windsurfing and sailing are just two of the water sports available. Browse for bargains in the colourful local markets, centred round authentic Spanish restaurants and Tapas bars.

Ambience: If you are looking for clear skies, reliable sunshine and fine beaches, look no further than the Costa Almeria, with at least 300 sunny days a year, and more total daylight per year than anywhere in the world, this part of Spain has the perfect holiday climate.

This small complex is owned and run by English couple along with their two dogs Tia a Black Labrador and Mac a Golden Labrador both have been raised alongside children and are very friendly (they get more comments in the visitors book than we do) we are happy to give any help and advice to make your stay more pleasurable.

Our complex is newly purpose-built and consists of 2 attached villas, a 2 bedroomed apartment and a 1 bedroomed apartment all totally self-contained around a central swimming pool with a smaller children's pool attached. Set in an area of three and a half acres, planted with orange, lemon, mandarin, grapefruit, olive and fig trees. Each villa comprises two double bedrooms, one with double bed, the other with twin beds. Bathroom and kitchen, lounge/diner, patio doors to dining terrace and spiral staircase up onto rooftop sun terrace. The villa accommodation is designed ideally for 4 people, but can comfortably take six using the sofa bed in the main lounge.

About Ian or Jan

We purchased Casa Benedict after deciding to escape the usual drudgery of sitting in Traffic jams on our usual commute to work and after a short break in Barcelona where we loved the Spanish way of life.

We also live on the property in an adjoining 3 bed villa.

Ian or Jan purchased this villa in 2004

Why Ian or Jan chose Turre

The property was only 2 years old when we purchased it and we wanted to move to Spain but still need a small income to pay our way. We have always had our faithful dogs and we needed plenty of space for them as well. At the time of purchase Jan's Daughter and grandchildren were also living in the area but have now moved back to the U.K.

What makes this villa unique

We fell in love with Casa Benedict on the first viewing and made an immediate offer after sitting on what is now our front terrace enjoying the views of The Cabrera Mountains and the village of Mojacar set at the foot of the mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comments from our visitors books

Our stay here has been fantastic, brilliant apartment, pool, garden & area. You both have made us feel very welcome and at home. We will recommend you to everyone - Mr & Mrs Ray Hampshire.

We have been made very welcome and provided with everything we could want. Nothing was too much trouble for Ian & Jan - Mr & Mrs Pollard Nr.Manchester.

We love it here Ian & Jan were fabulous hosts. Casa Benedict has the homely touch and the little things like the info folder and Tara & Macy (Eddie Loves Them) make a difference. Thanks for a brilliant stay we shall return - Mr & Mrs Hickman with Eddie aged 6.

Thanks to Ian & Jan we have really enjoyed our time here. The Villa, Pool & Garden have been great and Rumer has used all her camera film on the dogs. The setting & location of the Villa combined with the hospitality ensured that the two weeks have been the most relaxing & pleasurable - Mr & Mrs McDermott Sheffield

A 60th birthday to remember at Casa Benedict

  • 5 of 5

Andrew and I spent three out of five weeks at this wounderful location. The first was to size the place up as we had booked for two weeks in May for family and friends to celebrate my birthday. It was amazing it had everthing we wanted and more. Great location, totally safe with masses of space,beautfully kept and perfect for a large gathering.

Jan and Ian could not have been more helpfull, toys for the grandchildren, extra large pots and pans all arrived before we asked, everthing was done to make our stay perfect. They even arranged the weather.

The dogs were a great hit even with Amy aged 2 who was frightened of dogs when she arrived. By day two she was feeding Tara and calling her to join us.

The location on site of the villas and apartments lend themselves to the perfect place for a large gathering we could not have choosen better.

We left with new friends and intend to return again unfortunatly not to celebrate another 60th birthday.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay. Clean, bright and wonderfully quiet. Altho we were very late due to a flight delay - we were met and greeted by Ian into his wonderful property. We are definitely going to return. It was so delightful and comfortable .

Really relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here, it was quiet and relaxing. The apartments have all the mod cons necessary to make you feel as if you were in your own home. There's a really nice pool and the the town of Turre is withing walking distance. The beach is only 10 minutes away by car. We hope to return in the not too distant future.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at the Casa Helena, the villa was clean and tidy and had all the amenities that we needed for a 10 night stay, the owners Ian and Jan were always very helpful and answered any questions we had on the location, the local villages are a must to visit and most have market days once a week.

I would recommend Casa Benedict to anyone, and we will deferentially be back for another visit soon

Superb Holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in Casa Helena & we couldn't fault it at all, we had the most relaxing & lovely holiday ever. The property was just perfect for us, my sister & family came out for the 1st week & they stayed in casa Alicia which was identical to the villa we stayed in. The property was ideal as everyone had their own space but we were able to utilise the outdoor eating area & pool to all enjoy our holiday together. The villa was very clean with all homely items you could possibly think of being supplied. Jan & Ian were very welcoming & our children & nieces loved making friends with Francesca! The property is perfect for children as its a really safe area, the pool, pond & park proved a big hit with our children. There's lots to do close by, although a car is needed you don't need to drive very far to local supermarkets, restaurants, beaches. The water park & go karting track are all within a few minutes drive. I'd definetly recommend this property to family & friends & hopefully we will be booking again for 2018.

Sejour d'une semaine à Casa helena

Nous avons passé une agréable semaine dans la casa helena. Rien à dire sur la propreté, aussi bien intérieure qu'exterieure. Propriétaires discrets et sympathiques ce qui fait que l'on se sentait comme chez nous. A renouveler..
