Why the owner chose a house in this location
We built our house ten years ago, and supervised the project every day for the two years it took. We are very proud of the result. Great attention to detail was our priority. A very special property that reflects the owners tastes acquired from years of travels in Asia and Africa. We love this area. At home we have the peace and quiet of the countryside, and yet we are only minutes away from the coast and the villages. Granada is a day trip away, and Cordoba and Seville are visited on an easy weekend trip. We are well connected by Air, train, ferry and bus to the rest of Spain, Africa and Europe.

We are five minutes from the village of Turre with small shops and supermarkets, and ten from the low rise beach area which is well known for its local beach bars, restaurants, shopping center. We also have beautiful natural unspoilt beaches nearby. The unique whitewashed moorish village of Mojacar is steeped in history. Local villages have weekly farmers markets.
