About John and Joan
My husband and I live in the UK and both lead busy lives working hard so that we can spend as much time as possible in Villaricos which is a beautiful and authentically Spanish village, we have taken time and pride in providing a well equipped and comfortable apartment and hope that if you choose to stay you will have a relaxed and enjoyable holiday.
John and Joan purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why John and Joan chose Villaricos
When deciding where to buy our holiday home we decided on the village of Villaricos having spent some time in the area we fell in love with the village, it ticked all the boxes for us having a traditional Spanish feel with friendly people, lovely bars and restaurants which served wonderful fresh fish and sea food alongside many others dishes. So if like us you are foodies you won’t go wrong. As soon as we saw the beautiful complex of Harbour Lights we knew this was the home for us and have since spent many wonderful holidays there with family and friends. We really enjoy the relaxed and warm feel of the village and that everything is just a short stroll away, or drive if you are looking for full on night life.
What makes this Apartment unique
We loved the traditional Spanish feeling of Harbour lights and this is born out by its architecture and the four traditional plaza's making up the complex. The beauty of Harbour lights is maintained in that each area is redecorated every four years and maintenance is of a high level. The facilities are contained within each of the plazas with a lovely pool in one and a jacuzzi contained in beautiful gardens in an other, the other two plazas have lovely fountain features where you can read a book or just contemplate life! This is all situated on a stunning harbour front. This is why we fell in love with harbour lights and the village of Villaricos.

Excellent apartment (everything your need) in a beautiful part of Spain.
We have just returned from a fabulous 2-week holiday in Villaricos. We are a family of 4 and we found the apartment comfortable and very well equipped to cover all of our needs. It is situated in the Harbour Lights in the Spanish costal village of Villaricos. There was a communal swimming pool and a beach on your doorstep. The closet beach was a stone beach - the sea was crystal clear and perfect for snorkelling. We had a few days where the sea was very wavy, which was great fun. There are other beaches in Villaricos but lots of bays, coves and beaches in a short driving distance from Harbour Lights. There are local shops in Villaricos and supermarkets in Vera (Mercadona, Lidl and Consum). We spent 2 fun mornings at Lunar Waterpark, which we would highly recommend. Villaricos has 2 small harbours, bars and restaurants and a seafront promenade. Sunday morning is market day for your fresh fruit and vegetables plus clothing and lots of other stalls.
Thank you, John and Joan. We would certainly recommend this apartment and hope to visit the area again.
Thank you Jill for the lovely review. So glad you and your family had such enjoyable time and found everything in Villaricos and the surrounding area to make it memorable holiday. You mentioned everything that makes Villaricos such a special place. Hope to see you again in the future.
With best wishes
John and Joan
The apartment worked perfectly for us three ladies. 3 good sized bedrooms and good facilities.
Lovely apartment overlooking courtyard at the very quiet end of Villaricos. We had everything we needed in the apartment and a big supermarket not too many Kms away. A car is pretty much a necessity if you want to visit places. Easy journey from Murcia airport, very little traffic on the motorways. We visited early September and the holiday season had pretty much finished. Weather was good most of the week until the ‘monsoon’ descended on the last day. Would happily recommend.
Thank you Tricia for your nice review, as always we’re glad the apartment suited you and your friends and that the apartment and village had everything you needed. We have very little rain here but when it does rain it can be very heavy.
Nice to have received your recommendation and hope to see back again!!
