A little piece of Heaven.
Take a minute to imagine sitting in the sunshine with a glass of wine in your hand with the only sounds being the birds tweeting and the gentle lapping of the swimming pool water. That is exactly what spending time at this wonderful villa is like. It's in such a tranquil location and very private and peaceful. You do need a car but Vera and supermarkets are only a 5 minute drive away and the beach with some great restaurants is only 10 minutes away. It's an easy 50 minute drive from Almeria airport and I love the area for its distinct lack of traffic.
The villa is decorated to a very high standard and fully equipped with everything you could wish for. It truly is a home from home. Wi-fi, TV if needed, Air con, Fully fitted kitchen with microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.
Outside the pool area is spacious with sun loungers and plenty of seating. It has some lovely features and plants and the lighting looked pretty on an evening.
Sharon and Carl have thought of everything and the welcome hamper in the fridge including a bottle of Cava on arrival was thoughtful, kind and much appreciated. They are really helpful and give you plenty of advice and info on the area before you arrive .
Although the Villa is in a quiet location you are not too alone. Sharon and Carl have some wonderful neighbours in Pat & Chris and Ian & Rhonda who are on hand down the road if you need any advice and are very knowledgeable on the area.
It is the perfect place to relax and unwind and I will definitely be looking to visit again in the future.
You have captured the essence of the Villa exactly as we see it .. So pleased you had a fabulous time ....
Look forward to your return holiday
Lovely villa for a quiet relaxing get away
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the villa it is well equipped, clean and comfortable. It is set in a rural peaceful location, a car is a must.
Sharon and Carl were very helpful prior to our arrival giving us a lot of information about the villa the surrounding area and places to eat. On arrival we also had a welcome pack a very thoughtful touch.
The outside area was spacious with a fabulous patio and pool.

Thank you for your kind comments we look forward to you returning
Great holiday, dissapointing post holiday charges
We enjoyed a wonderful holiday in this relaxing property. It is located in quite a remote area so a car is a must. It is only a short drive to Vera where all amenities can be found. The nearest beach is approximately a ten minute drive away - parking is free.
The pool at the villa is a reasonable size for kids / family to play in. Air conditioning in the bedrooms is very effective. There isn't an outside BBQ so cooking outside requires rigging up a hot plate with extension lead. It works but doesn't have the same effect as a BBQ. Cooking and eating outside during the day was a challenge because of the flies: need one hand to eat and one hand to fend off the flies. Still worth the effort though.
The owners were very helpful prior to our arrival giving us a lot of information as we requested. On arrival we also had a welcome pack of 'fizz' and other essentials - a very thoughtful touch. The villa was very clean.
Why only 3 stars? On return from our holiday our returned deposit was unexpectedly reduced. This was due to the pool requiring an extra clean during our stay (at our request). We were not warned at the time there would be this additional cost. The pool got very dirty and murky quickly. The owner said this was due to sand. We think it was due to dirt being blown in by the wind (it can be quite windy at times). Whatever the cause, it seemed a little churlish to be billed for the clean especially without being told this would be the case.
A stand up fan broke whilst we were there. It just collapsed (it was clearly not in very good order when we arrived - very wobbly and noisy) - the owner indirectly suggested we were at fault as in an email they stated "We haven't charged you for the broken fan".
As a property that is being rented out there were other minor things that should be addressed such as a lot of solar lights in the garden not working, cement work around the pool is cracking, TV instructions very complicated (need writing more logically). These are only minor issues and did not detract from our great holiday.
If it hadn't of been for the unexpected additional charge for the pool cleaning and the comment regarding the fan, we would have given a 4 star rating (4.5 stars would have been more accurate as the additional issues were only very minor).
In summary, we would recommend the property but with the caution of being wary of potential unexpected post holiday costs!
There are several beaches to visit, the closest being a 10 minute drive from the villa.
Car is necessary. The main airport of Almeria is less than an hours drive with Murcia being just over 1 hour away and Alicante being just under a couple of hours drive.
Vera - just under 10 minute drive.
Garrucha - about 15 minute drive.
Mojacar - about 20 minute drive.
Other places of interest include Cabo de Gata Natural Park, Castle of Lijar, water park at Vera, mini Hollywood; the quaint fishing village of Villaricos or drive up the coast to Mojacar Playa where there is a wide variety of activities, restaurants and entertainment available.
