About Stuart Macpherson
My name is Stuart Macpherson I am 48 years old and live in Inverness Scotland with my wife and 3 children 2 of which are grown up students. I am a keen golfer which was partly my reason for buying the property as well as my love of Spain and Spanish culture.The amazing weather in Almeria may have had a bit to do with it too! What I like in particular about Almeria is the desert feel and the real dryness and hot winds.We bought the apartment in 2004 and have enjoyed many trips there since.We quite often combine a trip up to Granada which we love,worth an overnight stay just less than 2 hours on a very good road .
Why Stuart Macpherson chose Vera
What I like particularly about the area is its proximity to the sea and the dry hot winds. Almeria is also less developed than Costa del Sol which I prefer as you dont have to go to far to get to traditional Spanish life.As well as playing Golf I am also a keen cyclist and have found lots of good road cycling there as the country roads are fairly quiet. Also in Spain there is much more respect given to cyclists than in the UK despite what you may hear about Spanish motorists. Depending where you live in the UK Valle del este is pretty easy to access from most major cities and shortish transfers.
What makes this Apartment unique
What I enjoy whilst staying at the property is at Valle Del Este now the resort is quite self contained and if you want you could stay on site for quite long periods as there are good restaurants and bars and the golf is within walking distance. Down at the pool there is a nice grassed area where you can sit and read of listen to your ipod its a very relaxing place. The Valle del este hotel is within walking distance and there is a Gym and internet available. There is also a sports style bar with WIFI and sky sports. There is also a very good Spanish Tapas bar/restaurant. Very recently an Indian restaurant has opened. Our apartment itself is 3 bedroomed which is quite unusual on the site.It is well equipped and has air con(essential in summer) and Spanish and UK TV.

Good place to stay
Great place to stay, big pool. Kids enjoyed it.
The apartment is great, kitchen is really good for cooking and living room and bedrooms are really well iluminated.
The swimming pool is amazing to chill out before going to the beach.
The kids also had an amazing time.
Valle De Este
Apartment was great, could do with a bit of tlc, but for a quite relaxing break it is ideal.
A spacious well equipped appartment with everything to have an enjoyable Holiday.
Cant fault the location and the apartment itself.
Was let down slightly by not being cleaned properly. Bathrooms and kitchen were cleaned but he floors had not been cleaned for some time. My wife had to vacuum and mop the floors. However that was not a fault of the apartment which was in an excellent location and made a comfortable base for a thoroughly enjoyable break. Well done to the owner.
Thanks for your review.
I am disappointed to hear that your wife had to vacuum and clean floors.
I will look into why this happened and let you know the outcome.
I can only offer you a discounted week in the future as compensation.
Best regards Stuart
We´ve had wonderful vacations in Vera (Almeria) and much to blame is the fantastic appartment we've enjoyed. It has everything you can expect from an appartment, totally equipped, with two bathrooms, air conditioning in all rooms, placed in a housing developement near the highway, in a complex with a four star hotel, bars, restaurants etc . Many afternoons we had the swimming pool for ourselves which is really a luxury, in short good value for money. And finally I'd like to stress the good communication with the appartment's owner Stuart.
Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a great time.
Please feel free to book again and in particular there are some good deals in the winter months.
Thanks again Stuart
