Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Cuevas del Almanzora

4 Bedroomed self- catering villa with free form private pool

A truly exceptional 4 bedroom luxury villa. This magnificent detached villa has been beautifully designed both inside and out, with stunning landscaped gardens and a free form private pool overlooking the 1st green of the renowned Desert Springs Golf Resort. This is a best- of- both world's location enjoying views of uninterrupted rural scenery, yet is less than a 10 minute drive to the coast. Desert Springs Resort offers every facility for a memorable holiday and not only for the golfer. It boasts a Spa, Tennis Courts, Gym, Cycling and Jogging trail,3 bars, 3 restaurants. At the Sierra Club there is a free form swimming pool with contra current, Jacuzzi, children's play and games areas and their own beach. The Villa itself has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, living room/ dining area and bodega dinning room in the basement. Outside you have 2 covered terraces, one dinning area for 8, the other seating for 8 overlooking the first green and a beer bath for cooling down in after a long day.

Desert Springs Golf Resort: Designed by Peter McEvoy and inspired by the famous golf courses of New Mexico and Arizona, it is the only desert golf course in Europe. The Indiana course has been built to full USGA specifications.

It is a spectacular blend of emerald green fairways and arid landscape of cacti, rock flowering desert flora, streams and lakes, set high on a plateau surrounded by the ranges of the Sierra Cabrera mountains. It is the largest cacti and rock park in the whole of Europe.

All in all the course offers an exhilarating golfing experience both demanding and satisfying for players of all abilities depending on the choice of tee selected.

The Indiana is the overseas home for a number of British Golf unions as well as the home of the Royal Spanish Golf Federation.

The practise facilities are impressive with a complment of PGA teaching professionals. There is a superb clubhouse, pro shop and boutique.

"Fabulous Villa" Most definitely not to be missed

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 of us staying in this absolutely excellent Villa, perfectly clean, very well maintained and very homely and welcoming. The owner’s description is 100% accurate and dealing with Penny was a pleasure. The Villa its self is very spacious and has every single thing you could ask for nothing we found was missing in fact there seemed to be two or three of every thing that we needed. We had the master bedroom which was a dream (like a 5 star hotel). The pool and garden area were fantastic and the “Beer Bath” was just great for us all to sit in with a beer (or two!!!!) and have a chat and chill. The patio area (leading down to the garden and pool) was furnished to a high standard with built in BBQ, lovely Big wooden table and 8 chairs, also on the patio there was a sofa, arm chairs, coffee table and ceiling fans. It was a pleasure to sit out there every night with the pool lit up. We could not have asked for more and we will be definitely returning as soon as poss. We would most certainly recommend this Villa to anyone looking for a great relaxing holiday. We had so many things planed to do like the Beach, Lunch ect but found we just stayed in the Villa the whole 7 days as so very relaxing, why go out! Highly recommend this Villa, Perfect.

Owner's Response: We are delighted with this first holiday-rentals review, especially as this party were not even golfers. Which just goes to show that Desert Springs is a great family resort for everybody with its bars and restaurants, crocodile club pool, tennis courts, gym, fitness trail and spa The golf course and club house facilities are excellent and second to none in the area. We are also extremely pleased that our villa came up to expecations and that our guests will be returning. Many thanks to you Sue.

Incredible villa, stunning design and lots of interesting areas. Excellent outdoor space from roof terraces and sun terraces around pool. Very clean and well maintained, with everything you could wish for. Great view overlooking the golf course and an easy walk to the club house for dinner/drinks. We had a fantastic time and would love to go back, the pictures don't show how magical this villa really is.

Exceptionally equipped property with great outlook

  • 5 of 5

We spent a marvellous fortnight at this property during August 2012. Our party consisted of four generations of the family aged two to eighty four and the villa suited everybody.

It is very spacious both inside and out meaning everyone could “have their own space”. It is furnished and equipped to a very high standard with many personal touches – more like a family home than a holiday rental. The main bedroom suite is exceptional with a very large ensuite and balcony.

The pool area is similarly spacious with plenty of seating and sun loungers, and a dining table easily big enough for everyone. Being August it was very hot but there was always a pleasant breeze. Inside the air conditiong worked extremely well.

None of us are golfers but despite this the villa was a really good choice. The restaurant at the clubhouse is excellent and the prices surprisingly reasonable. Although the local amenities are not too far away, a car is a necessity.

The only problem now is that we have been so spoilt staying here that finding anywhere to compare to it will be difficult. I guess a return visit is the answer!

Fantastic house/pool/complex... just as the descriptions. Very luxurious home with everything you could possibly need. Penny very helpful and Glynn who met us at the property had some great suggestions of eateries. Which turned out to be fantastic!! Definitely recommend this resort and property. Weather was fab even in february 20-22c!!!!

Used the day spa and Karen did a great Indian Head Massage. El Torrente staff and food lovely. Decorated table for my husbands birthday and organised a cake.!! Overall a fantastic place even if you don't play golf or tennis. Very relaxing...

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 adults and 3 children (all aged 4 months - 14 months), and we stayed at this stunning villa in June 2010. I cannot recommend this villa enough. The house has everything and anything you could ever possible want ....really spacious inside and outside, amazing decor with so many little touches, a beautiful indoor and outdoor dining area, a great veranda area overlooking the pool where we spent most nights enjoying a glass of wine or a few beers, or playing cards or articulate. A few nights we wandered up to the Crocodile Club which again is a beautiful bar and restaurant and enjoyed some really good food and lovely atmosphere. We also ate lunch a few times in the Clubhouse which was lovely. We played golf so the location was perfect overlooking the golf course. That said many days we went exploring the local villages and markets etc and there is so much to see and do in the area so I would really recommend it for non golfers as well. Thank you so much for a really great holiday in your villa. The description and images on the website are absolutely bang on, in fact it's even better!

Fantastic Spanish Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This villa was fantastic. We had a great week with a small group of friends (including baby) and enjoyed every minute. Highlights included many a night out cooking at the bbq and relaxing by the magnificiant pool with the music wafting over. The attention to detail is excellent, with everything catered for (and make sure you bags the main bedroom). The team managing the villa make the expereience enjoyable and easy (even when you lock yourself out...). Highly recommended (and even more so if you are going for golf). Cheers.
