Guest comments

"We had an absolutely fabulous time and returned home more relaxed than ever before after a holiday. It really is the most perfect spot with amazing views and sunsets, it made our summer, our memory banks are now full." Richard and Christine, East Sussex.

"Lovely quiet place, great views and lovely setting. Swimming pool excellent size. Villa very large and has a nice rustic feel to it. Great place to go if you want to get away from everything and clear your head of day-to-day England. Lorca Castle nearby was by far one of the best castles we've been to and great for our kids." Grant and Zoe and family.

About the Owner

We are farmers from Kent who wanted more sunshine and a get-away-from-it-all place. We found La Parrilla on a December afternoon and were amazed at the quiet, peaceful surroundings and the brightness of the natural light. The birdlife and animals never cease to impress us, from eagles to wild goats. The estate has not been farmed for 50 years and we cherish its natural beauty. Renovating the property has been our project for the past 12 years, although a great deal of that time has been relaxing and sharing the experience with friends. We have always tried to support the local businesses and the locals are friendly, generous and patient even with our very basic attempts at the spanish language.

Why this location?

Lorca is known as the "city of the sun" in this part of Spain. When we first came to Lorca it was undertaking a transformation:new Millennium Bridge lit up at night over the rambla, roads rebuilt but beautiful old churches and medieval buildings still cherished. We went to the Easter Week Fiesta where we watched the parade and were literally swept along into one of the grand churches. Lorcans are passionate about their fiestas and traditions, such dedication is shown by local groups taking 12 months to repair the bottom 30cm of the 200 year-old silken cloaks of the horseriders. This contrasts with the peace and seclusion of La Parrilla, in the hills with 360 degree views, relaxing by the pool overlooking pine, olive and fig trees (not farmed for 40 years) at one with nature.

What are the unique benefits of the property?

Utter peace and tranquility. A refreshing swim in the 45' pool and then dry off whilst swinging under the Altea tree before moving to the expansive terrace for a glass of wine and barbecue. Maybe a jug of lemonade on the picnic table under the almond tree might be more private, away from the family. Fancy a walk before breakfast? Then follow the winding track up the hill to the Hermita del Pradico for spectacular views. As the evenings draw in what better than to sit by a roaring log fire to read or enjoy a game of cards or just partake in conversation. Close the shutters at night and most people have been amazed at how long they sleep, even children, owing to the quiet.
