About Jane Shergold

John and I lived in the West Country, John had a small business for twenty years, and I was a school cook at the local infant school for nineteen years We had for a long time dreamed of living in the Mediterranean, and so in 2003 we decided to take the plunge, and have never regretted it.

Jane Shergold purchased this villa in 2003

My Wife and I enjoyed a relaxing week here. The owners are friendly and helpful. We alternated days of relaxing by the pool with outings to various locations including, Aguilas, Cartagena, Sierra Maria, Caravaca de la Cruz and Barranda Ethnic Museum. Heurcas and Sierra Espuna also nearby.

Buen alojamiento en un lugar tranquilo

  • 4 of 5

Pese a la lluvia, que por otra parte es bienvenida, la estancia en la casa ha sido estupenda, tal como se anuncia, tranquilidad, estupendas instalaciones y un trato inmejorable. Gracias a Jhon y Jane por hacernos sentir como si estuviésemos en nuestra casa. Seguro que si podemos volveremos a alojarnos en la casa en otras vacaciones

Beautifully clean and welcoming !

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth year we have visited, we are so welcomed. The apartment is spotless, lovely fresh towels and clean linen. Jane and John are always to hand if we need anything, nothing is too much trouble. yes we would recommend this property .This year we enjoyed the pool and bbq as usual and visited a few places like Castril and walked along the gorge walk, there is a little bar and tapas at the end. Sierra Espuna had beautiful views. Aguilas was stunning in the evening with a walk up to the castle and down on the beach .we also visited the caves in estrchio de la arboleja and Mazzaron plus a drive up to the big guns which was an awesome view. We also enjoy watching the owls with a glass of wine in the late evening...what a treat!!!

Paradise Found !!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property and we have just booked our third for September. The peace we experience when we are here is beyond words, a total unwind. The hosts Jane and John and of course Sophie, are a joy and have all the bases covered with regards the accommodation and local eating and shopping. The accommodation is lovely with all the necessary facilities for a very comfortable stay. During our stay in February we had gorgeous temperatures through the day but quite crispy and cold at night so we had the log burner lit through the night and were really cosy. We didn't venture into the pool in February but it is a wonderful facility during the summer months when the temps are high. The pool area and roof terrace are perfect for sunbathing or sipping a glass of wine when the sun is setting, which is stunning as it slips down behind the surrounding mountains. Jane and John have a beautiful way of ensuring that you have all that you need throughout your stay without invading your personal space. The local village which is 5 minutes away has an excellent supermarket, bakery/coffee shop, bars and restaurants. 6 x bottles of good beer or a bottle of wine are less than 2 euros and there is a wide variety of fresh meat, cheeses and tapas available every day. We are so looking forward to getting back in September and would definitely recommend this property to anybody who is looking for peace or a fantastic base to explore the region.

Quiet and Tranquill Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at the Supermeccado and met by John for an escorted drive to our private apartment where we met Jane and Sophie, we were invited into their casa for a very welcome tea biscuits and a chat befor being shown around our well equipped self contain apartment. John and Jane were very welcoming and friendly and were there if needed but had the ability to completely dissapear when not :-) we had the exclusive use of the lovely pool and barbecue area and also our own solerium on the roof, the bread lady dropped off our freshly baked bread daily mmmmm! And it was great to be met by Sophie each morning who was so gentle when she took her biscuit before she also disapeared (we were asked if we minded Sophie being around at the start of our holiday) We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days exploring the area and relaxing with advise from John and Jane on places to see when requested. We would thoroughly recommend a stay for a relaxing holiday away from the hussle and bustle of everyday life although with the pool your children won't be bored. We enjoyed our stay and will be revisiting again.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased with the reviews from our guests, we try to think of everything they would need, after all, it is their home for the duration of their holiday. Sophie, is our beautiful dog, she is eleven years old now, so is no longer boisterous, she loves to meet our guests, and is quite content to lay a few yards away from them, so she can listen to them talking. We always ask our guests if they mind her being around, it is not a problem to keep her away from them.
