Casa Dorega, Los Higuerales
average rating of 4.6 based on 5 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We were extremely satisfied with our stay at Casa Dorega, a few things could maybe be replaced in future, but that's just purely cosmetic. The pool was lovely, regularly maintained during our stay by Phil, who was very accommodating and if we had any issues to call him and he would sort it out. The only problem we encountered was the internet but due to its remote location, I think it did pretty well, just little annoying when you are watching a film, cant be helped! We had no issues really, we enjoyed the remote location and found it very quiet. We had the most amazing relaxing 30 days, to be fair, we could have stayed forever. We are looking into the possibility of moving out in the near future, and after spending time around the Albox area , we have felt it very friendly and a place where we would like to settle full time.

We now need to learn a bit of Spanish to get us through, but it's a viable affluent area indeed. We drove to Spain and would highly recommend if you plan to fly then you would definitely need to hire a car, it is not close enough to walk to the nearest shop, you would need to drive 10 to 15 minutes to the local corner shop, which is English owned and stocks many English foods, always a bonus!

Anyway we had a wonderful holiday and definitely plan to use Casa Dorega again. Many Thanks to Liz and Phil, hope to be back soon

Our stay for the first 3 weeks of May 2017.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Dorega and the peace and quiet of the area. We were fortunate to have sunshine almost everyday as the week before we arrived there had been rain. It was a very relaxing stay and just what we needed. The coast (Mojacar) is about 45 minutes drive away and we found the tarmac road preferable to use rather than the shorter rambla route - kinder on the hire car too! There were most things we needed in the Casa and if the pool had been warmer, which it will be by the end of June I think, we would have enjoyed a dip - it was just the right size. We saw lots of birds - brightly coloured bee-eaters, a couple of eagles circling above us as well as the more usual birds. There is a local goatherd which comes by most days and the shepherd is a very amiable chap who waves and chats and shouts at the goats! I was pleasantly surprised to find there was wifi installed in the Casa as I hadn't expected it, and would have managed without it anyway, but it was an unexpected bonus.
