Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 1 Separate Toilet, Sleeps up to 8

Cortijo Coscojica is a tasteful, secluded house nestled on a small hill with superb views of the surrounding valley and sea. The house is peaceful and tranquil yet close to the bars, restaurants and nightlife of Mojácar. Built recently on the plot of a ruin, we have taken great care to retain much of the original charm of that building whilst incorporating many modern touches. The floor is laid with handmade terracotta tiles throughout and the wooden beamed ceilings are high, allowing for large windows, giving on to spectacular views.

There is a 4x10 metre swimming pool with its own pool house, perfect for sitting in the shade, and there are sun beds for those that enjoy sunbathing. There is a gate between the house and the pool ideal for keeping small children safe. The extensive gardens are well tended and planted with many different species.

Neither the house nor the pool are overlooked by any neighbours, as the buildings are set in over 7 acres of land.

The house is powered by the sun. There is an extensive array of solar panels discretely hidden on the roof. Due to the size of the solar system you are unlikely to ever be aware that all the power being used in the house comes directly from the sun. Staying here will reduce your carbon footprint! The house has all the usual amenities, including dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine. There are ceiling fans throughout the house. There is shade for two cars in the carport at the front of the house; there is plenty of room for more cars just below.

The kitchen is extremely light and spacious, with a lot of counter space and a bar with 3 stools. It is fully equipped with a dishwasher, gas oven, a 5 ring hob and large fridge/freezer. Other kitchen gadgets include an orange juice squeezer, Magimix and hand blender.

The best, most unspoiled beaches in the area are nearby. Beyond Macenas there are several beaches that have no buildings on them - although there is a beach bar that was originally built for the film 'Treasure Island' at the end of the track.

Carboneras and the Cabo de Gata Natural Park lie a 10 minute drive to the south. Carboneras is still very unspoiled and has a fantastic selection of fish restaurants as well as an lively market on Thursdays. Further on lies Agua Amarga, the first of many pretty fishing villages in the natural park, and some the finest beaches on the Spanish coast.

About Tomasina

I grew up in London and Buenos Aires. I have been living in Spain for over 10 years with my husband and children. I now live and work in Mojacar.

Why Tomasina chose Mojacar area

My husband and I completely renovated this property and lived in it for many years. It is not just a house but a home! It is situated in a beautiful, tranquil setting yet close to the amenities in both Mojacar and Carboneras.

What makes this villa unique

We built this house as a home and it has unique features such as the wooden ceilings, terracotta floors, large windows to make the most of the wonderful views let in lots of light.

Un año más, mejor que en nuestra casa

  • 5 of 5

Es el segundo año que disfrutamos del Cortijo La Coscojica, y nos encontramos mejor que en nuestra casa, sobre todo porque tiene esa fantástica piscina.

Las habitaciones son amplias, muy cómodas y no dejamos de sorprendernos con la equipación de la cocina, que tiene de todo.

Este año visitamos nuevos lugares pero siempre nos agrada volver al cortijo a descansar.

Gracias a Tomasina y a Jasper por su simpatía y atención.

Estamos deseando que pase un año más para volver

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to write about this villa because it is so special. The love and hard work that has gone into it is plain to see. It is modern and practical but also beautiful and full of character. It's a perfect holiday hideaway, but so easy to live in that it feels like home too. We've stayed in many villas and only one has come close to this (and that was on a deserted Bahamian beach, so it had a head start!).

Peaceful and private yet handy for lively Mojacar and the less touristy Carboneras, if (unaccountably) you should want to go out.

It's just about perfect.

Tomasina and Jasper are friendly, helpful and generous hosts, always on hand should you need anything. I hope we can return some day.

Secluded, luxury villa with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect villa for us, really off the beaten track but 10/15 minute drive to the bustling mojacar playa. The pool was amazing, great for kids, it was big but had a shallower end. House had everything we wanted, big fridge freezer, cafetière, and so much space for everyone. Beds were comfy, wifi was strong, plenty of hot water, really couldn't fault anything! Tomasina was lovely, she ensured we settled in and had everything we needed and made sure we knew how to contact her if we needed anything else. I would recommend this villa to anyone without hesitation - thanks Tomasina :-)

Car: recommended

The house is between Sopalmo and Macenas beach, 4 km from Mojacar Playa. It has wonderful views of the surrounding valley and down to the sea, just over a kilometre away. The dramatic and spectacular natural park of Cabo de Gata is is nearby and it is only a 20 minute drive to Agua Amarga, the first of many pretty fishing villages in the natural park. Mojácar Playa and village with all the amenities they offer are a few minutes away by car. Macenas golf course is only a kilometre down the valley. Granada is two hours away.
