La Azohia, a hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

This is a place I have been visiting for years. It is the perfect place to come for anyone who is searching for a bit of peace and quiet, while also being close enough to the beach, shops and bars to not feel totally isolated. The owners, Maire and Malcolm, are extraordinarily welcoming and have clearly worked hard to make their home accessible to vacationers. The pool is a perfect depth for little ones, and there is plenty of space to play and sunbathe, as well as shady balconies if you don't like the heat and prefer to read in the cool! Absolutely love this place. Will be back soon!

Hassle-free holiday.

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with this property. A very luxurious and extremely comfortable villa with everything in working order.The pool was very well maintained as were the extensive patio areas on three sides of the property . Above all else , this property was meticulously clean throughout and when I asked the proprietor how this was maintained I discovered that steam -- cleaning is carried out on a regular basis.We felt rather lucky to have come across this particular property as it is a rather beautiful building which has been lovingly decorated and furnished with

great care with both antique and some very unusual bespoke pieces. Despite this grandeur we still found the house relaxed and we certainly

unwound while there. On occasion when leaving for a restaurant in the evening we asked ourselves why we didn't stay home and cook as the kitchen was much better equipped than your average hotel kitchen.We had wonderful evenings relaxing at the pool and in the bar. Yes, this property boasts its own bar , just adjacent to the pool. When one retires for the night the upstairs rooms are well proportioned and the linens well chosen and the bathrooms are many.

So impressed were we with this property that we are giving serious thought to booking it again for the coming year. I really am loathe to give it too resounding a review as I would ideally like to keep it our secret so that it is available for us.

lyWe enjoyed our stay hugely as the location afforded us the best of every world. For daytime activities we were right beside the beach and seaside bistros . Nocturnal trips to the port and Cartagena night life proved equally popular with both young and more stately in our party and were only a short distance away.

An absolute idyll

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in La Azohia with friends for a week and the property far surpassed our expectations. The pictures do not do justice to this beautiful paradise. The villa is incredibly spacious, with endless spaces for dining and relaxing both indoors and outdoors, and decorated with the most beautiful furniture throughout. The kitchen is complete with everything you might need for cooking for large numbers of people and in general the owners had thought of everything possible that we might need to know and have available to us. Our stay was problem-free, the property was extremely clean and ready for our arrival, and the owners were so kind and helpful with any questions we had about the villa and the surrounding area. They gave us recommendations of two restaurants just a short walk away by the beach, both of which were fantastic. We had such an enjoyable week staying that we never wanted to leave! I would whole-heartedly recommend La Azohia to friends and am hoping that we will come and stay again soon!

Wonderful villa for the perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more! Maire and Malcolm, the owners were waiting for us with refreshments and showed us where the best local restaurants could be found, fresh fish shop and supermarkets, the nearest restaurant being just along the road overlooking La Azohia beach with many small family run tapas bars along the way. This village is popular with Spanish families which adds to the authentic charm.

The villa is well equipped and spacious - we slept nine adults and three toddlers quite comfortably and there are many separate seating areas to allow for peace and quiet when required. The pool was superb and kept beautifully by Malcolm who comes in from time to time to maintain it.

There is a good sized BBQ by the pool and a huge table which sat us all comfortably - the weather added to a perfect family holiday - we didn't eat indoors once in 10 days - wonderful!

The nearest town, Mazarron is 10 minutes away with many restaurants and cocktail bars at the waters edge in the newly developed marina at Mazarron Port - taxis are very reasonable from La Azohia so a night "on the town" is definitely an option!

We would definitely book this villa again it was the perfect base for a wonderful family get-together.

Astounding Property

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful Villa this is. We spent a week we will never forget.

An ideal location for a 5* villa holiday. The pool, accommodation and facilities are second to none. Ideally located for the beach and restaurants. Truly wonderful, I would highly recommend for a family holiday.

Book it! Go! Simple!

Glorious Oasis

  • 5 of 5

I just wanted to reiterate the comments from the other reviewers. We stayed here last year and enjoyed it so much that as we start planning our holiday for this year I'm reminded again.

Large and spacious with plenty of intimate areas. Perfect to relax with friends and family or to take a moment to yourself. I struggle to think who this villa won't suit.

The boutique decor is stylish and full of character with each room and area creating its own unique 'feel'. Its compelling and fun to explore.

The beach, bars, and restaurants are a very short drive away or for the slightly more active only about 15 mins walk away.

The owners were delightful and ensured everything was prepared for our arrival and throughout our stay (occasionally popping in to clean the pool and help with anything else we may want).

We nearly ventured out on one of the local diving trips (also by the bars and beach) and thought about a round of golf (a little further out) but never quite made it - we were having too much fun where we were.

A perfect balance of ambience, convenience, practicality, fun and escapism!

Villa Paraíso is quite unique due to it's superb location and spacious grounds of 2 acres on the edge of a traditional Spanish fishing village, which has still not succumbed to the ravages seen along the Costas, The house is very large, full of character and charm, as are the patios opening from the four sides of the villa. These are well furnished, with seating and dining arrangements on each. The house itself has a large salon and dining room, fully equipped kitchen with seating and dining area,

There is an extra-large American washing machine in an almacen outside the kitchen with great outdoor drying

facilities in a screened area.

A long passage leading from the kitchen takes you to the Bar Area which always remains cool throughout the day. With it's own fridge/freezer and children's/card room area, giving easy access to the Pool, it is a popular amenity with young and old.

The Bar area which leads onto the pool has piped oudoor music which can be played day or night without danger of molesting neighbours.

The kidney shaped pool is 10 x 6 metres and has an enclosed outdoor solar shower (excellent with it's foot pump for removing sand etc. from the beach and showering before entering the pool).

An additional advantage on the ground floor is a twin-bedded en suite, both elderly and disabled friendly.

There is another downstairs loo on the ground floor in the passage leading to the Bar.

On the first floor the main bedroom which is air conditioned has an ensuite with stuning views across the Bay of Mazarron. There are two further bedrooms in this section with two separate bathrooms, one is twin-bedded and air-conditioned, the other has two large bunk beds. Both these rooms, as with all the upstairs rooms have spectacular views across the mountains and sea.

A library room connects this part of the upstairs with a charming two roomed apartment with a central bathroom, kitchen and a balcony seating four on the southern side of the house. These rooms are both double-bedded and may be be used by prior arrangement when the number of guests exceeds eight. One is air-conditioned and

the other being adjacent to the outside balcony has a wood burning stove and floor based fan.

They are never let separately. They are very comfortable and again have superb uninterrupted views of the mountsins behind, and the Bay in front. They offer added seclusion to this tranquil setting

For winter lets, there are three wood burners and an open fireplace in the kitchen (logs provided).

Three of the bedrooms are air-conditioned and the ohers have ceiling or free-standing fans. It might be added

that there has never been any need for air-conditioning on the ground floor as the through breezes from mountain

pass to sea provides comfortable living conditions, this also applies to those who do not like air-conditioned bedrooms.

Pets may be brought with prior consultation and smoking is allowed in the Bar area.

At the large gas Barbecue which is near the Pool, 12 people may sit at a long marble table. This area is supplemented by various occasional dining tables and is therefore eminently suitable for entertaining friends.

The house is a 2 minute drive from the Blue Flag sandy beach. Apart from 2 Chiringuitos (beach bars), there

are many nearby restaurants and tapas bars.

At the end of this beach there is a fish auction held daily where fish is not only sold to local restaurants but provides the Japanese and other markets with the highest grade of Tuna This historic fishing method dating back to Roman times,is called 'La Almadraba'.

The Villa enjoys the distinction of being on one side of a ten minute drive from the large Spanish resort of Puerto

de Mazarron with it's marina, funfairs, numerous bazaars, a huge Sunday market , and superstores.

A 20 minute drive through the mountains on the other side takes you to the historic city, of Cartagena(the oldest in Western Europe) with its Roman Amphitheatre, and state of the art museums. 40 Cruise ships a year stop in Cartagena and the City is awash with tapas bars and eating establishments at every level of haute cuisine. It has one of the largest El Corte Ingles, department stores in Spain. Boat rides can be taken round the harbour on an hourly basis.

For more local shopping, a few minutes drive on either side of the property takes you to a fresh fish shop, a butcher's, baker' s, pharmacy, newsagent etc.

Near the villa, a picturesque drive up the mountains takes you to a large military establishment opened in recent years to the public. It is an exciting and free trip for all to see. The huge cannons placed there, pre- second world war, with their look-out towers identifying on wall diagrams the appearance of all Mediterranean traffic of the era.,German, British, American and Spanish, This whole structure on the cliffs is a Disney like fantasy, castellated and should be experienced.. Rumour has it that it will me made into a Parador Nacional
