Great family villa, quiet and within easy reach of local attractions.
As soon as we saw Casa Bella Mar it was everything we dreamed of, a house with a garden that you can walk straight onto the beach. The views are stunning overlooking the sea from the garden, living room and master bedroom. The balcony has 360 degree magnificent view.
I booked the villa based on the stunning pictures on the internet and I was not disappointed.I booked it on behalf of my fanily and so felt some responsibilty for it going well. This was helped greatly by Jill the owner who was so easy to communicate with and very helpful indeed. The villa is a gem with all home comforts and very clean. The sea location is amazing and always quiet and peaceful. We spent many hours in the garden and if you have anyone who is not keen on the heat they can sit there in the shade and always feel on holiday somewhere special. My favourite beach was a short car ride away, Costa Tranquilas beach which was just pure sand and great for kids to swim in but also quiet and beautiful with the added bonus of a cafe. This was my favourite place to swim. I would recommend you have a car to get to shops etc as there is not one close by. The local restaurant on the beach at El Calon served us very well on many nights. Fresh food, well cooked but not a big place so less choice. We took kayaks out from the pool house and that was great fun. A gentleman attends to the pool each morning and it was very clean. It is also on the cooler side of the house which is great when it is very hot. We did unfortunately need a doctor in an emergency for a cut hand and we found one at San Juan which was very good and they communicated well in English. All in all a lovely place to stay and I would certainly recommend it. Many happy memories created for my 50th birthday.
What a beautiful place to stay. The house was lovely and clean and had all the facilities you could want, including a dishwasher (a definite bonus when you are on holiday!). To wake up every morning to the sound of the waves was fantastic - then to step out on the balcony and see the Mediterranean in all its glory was amazing. We would highly recommend staying at Jill and Ray's house in El Calón if what you are looking for is a bit of peace and quiet together with a local bar which serves a good selection of food and beers and wine just a 100 metres away. The shops are just a five minute drive away in San Juan de los Terreros which also has many bars and restaurants. The beach there is beautiful - it must be nearly a 1km long and the sea is very safe, especially for little ones as it gently slopes away. Thanks again Jill and Ray and we hope to come back again next year.
This was our third holiday here! We Rebook straight after each holiday so we can spend the year looking forward to it! Relax and recharge... Weather perfect...hot but a cool breeze.It is peaceful and the views are fantastic.....we even saw dolphins from the rocks this year! The apartment is very clean and accommodating with a sea view from the master bedroom where we sit contemplating life whilst the moon glimmers on the sea and rocks below. The owner is very helpful with any problems ( for example we couldn't get wifi straight away... our mistake we were using the wrong password! We had lovely emails and she was ready to send a man to help). A car is needed as it is secluded (which is lovely) great restaurants and the children enjoyed playing on the rocks and finding crabs as well as visits to a number of idyllic, uncrowded sandy beaches. We have booked for Easter 2015!
Excellent position, very tranquil area need car to get out and about. Second time here, no problems last time but this year. Cleanliness of house etc left lot to be desired. Left a week early because of this. Complained politely but given short shrift refund for final week refused. Impressed with location and view but nothing else.
Nuestras mejores vacaciones hasta ahora. El lugar es paradisiaco e inmejorable. Una semana de ensueño en un lugar muy, muy tranquilo, alejado de la aglomeración tipica de otros sitios de playa en verano. Hemos disfrutado muchisimo toda mi familia, mujer e hijo de 20 meses y la compañia de nuestro perro, que tambien ha disfrutado de lo lindo.
Es maravilloso el sonido del mar, el atarceder y amanecer en el mar, la luna reflejada en el mar, el romper de las olas en las piedras. Unas vistas de ensueño. Los desayunos y cenas en el jardín junto al mar, han sido los mejores en mucho tiempo.
La zona es tranquila y bonita por donde la mires. Los vecinos muy agradables, tanto ingleses como españoles. Colin es especial muy amable y atento en todo momento. Hay una pequeña zona de baño en las piedras justo al salir del jardín, de la que hemos disfrutado muchisimo. Tambien hay zona de playa a escasos 100 metros. Se puede salir a andar y dar largos paseos en dirección sur bordeando toda la costa. El pueblo en si, es totalmente turistico, con grandes casas particulares y de alquiler, tan solo hay un bar a escasos 50 metros. Pasa una furgoneta de reparto de pan y prensa todos los días entorno a las 11:00 de la mañana. Para el resto de servicios como farmacia o supermecardo hemos ido en coche a San Juan, donde se encuentra la otra cara de la moneda, grandes urbanizaciones en construcción y una playa super poblada de turistas. Hay tambien una playa muy buena y poco poblada a solo 2 kms en coche, dirección a Pozo del esparto, donde tambien hay una panaderia, heladeria, cafeteria, pizzeria muy buena.
En cuanto a la casa esta muy bien cuidada, limpia, y decorada con esmero. Se nota mucho la mano de Jill y el buen gusto. Es espaciosa, muy comoda y muy bien equipada, no le falta detalle. Si molesta el sonido del mar para dormir, al cerrar las ventanas no se escucha absolutamente nada. El solarium esta muy bien, menudas vistas, y que temperatura mas agradable por las noches. La piscina comunitaria en perfecta, segura para los niños, y muy bien cuidada.
Sin duda sitios como este quedan pocos en la costa, y si hay posibilidad, volvemos el año que viene.
Muy buen trato con Jill por mail, atenta a cada detalle, muy agradable, y el apoyo de Colin en el lugar perfecto.
Lo único malo de estas vacaciones es que han sido demasiado cortas, siempre las tomamos de 1 semana, pero aqui estas tan agusto, que cuesta mucho hacerse a la idea de que lo abandonas el último día...
Wir verbrachten 2 traumhafte Wochen in El Calon.
Strand und Pool hatten wir meist für uns alleine . Der freundliche Nachbar lieh uns 2 Kajaks mit dennen wir bei ruhiger, kristallklarer See die Unterwasserwelt beobachten konnten.
Unser Hund war auch willkommen.
In der Hauptsaison, wenn alle Häuser belegt sind, wird es sicher laut. Die Wände sind recht dünn. Für alle anderen Zeiten vorbehaltlos zu empfehlen.
Die nahegelegene Stadt Aquilas bietet alles was das Herz begehrt. Einsame kleine Buchten in der Nähe laden zum Schwimmen, Tauchen und Sonnen ein.
El Calon is in the provence of Almeria very near to the provence of Murcia, a small quiet community on the waterfront with its own beach, many rock pools & stunning views, friendly beach bar open all year, summer restaurant & bar, small children’s wooden play area.
