About the property

One-bedroom apartment, special location in Natural Park, next to stunning beach

This beautiful apartment is located in a special setting, near one of the most beautiful beaches in the park. It is a special place as it is very quiet area and it’s 2 kilometers from Rodalquilar, a charming village.

The apartment has been recently built in harmony with the environment. It has a double bedroom, with double bed, a living room, kitchen and bathroom. It is ideal for couples. It is fully equipped with good taste.

There is a nice little garden, that you can access from the lounge with a lovely old tree.

Rodalquilar is a charming town and its beach, Playazo, is one of the most beautiful in the park. In the village there are several bars with different characteristics, each in their own quality.

There are a few small shops for basic supplies, including fresh bread.

The Goldmine perches on the mountain above village. Most of the buildings have been restored and are now home to the Park Centre with its visitor centre, botanical and volcanism centres. There is also an open air theatre.

Below the Goldmine there are Botanical Gardens covering over 9Ha (22 acres).

The gardens are open daily and reproduce the diversity habitats that can be found in the park. The combination of plant life and water is big attraction for the local bird and animal life.

Activities: In the summer months there is open air cinema. There is live music or theatre nearly every night in Rodalquilar or one of the nearby villages. We can give you information of events and are happy to make bookings for you.

There are several driveable tracks that take you up behind the gold mine from the village to some interesting locations, such as the El Cortijo de El Fraile (5km) - the setting for real events of Garcia Lorca's play 'Blood Wedding'. A few kms further is the tiny village of Los Albaricoques - scene of the famous duel For a Few Dollars More (re-enacted each year).

Several marked trails originate in the village and climbing the mountains that surround the village can give stunning views from the snow capped Sierra Nevada to the Moroccan Atlas mountains. This is a cycling and hiking paradise although not perhaps at the height of summer.

Beaches: There are over 20 beaches and coves within the park in easy driving distance and the majority are unspoilt with no hotels or construction of any type. Los Muertos, Genoves, Monsul and of course Rodalquilar's beach, El Playazo are unmissable.

One of the few Mediterranean marine reserves, the snorkelling and diving is quite stunning, just next to the house! There are several dive outfits in the park. We can arrange single try out dives or longer courses.

There are kayaks and bicycles for hire and kayak tours are available in the summer months.

Further afield

Granada and its Alhambra are an easy day trip by car or train. We can arrange a full day visit or an overnight if required.

About Simon

Simon and I came tolive in Rodalquilar in 2011 with our two children, Laura and Pau.

We have always been in contact with the area, as I have family from Níjar. We both used to come here for our relaxing holidays and it’s always been a paradise for us.

Rodalquilar is a great village and we feel very happy here, as there are lovely people living. It’s small but with enough bars and restaurants and the odd shop or two. It has a relaxed laid back family atmosphere - a long way from the ‘Costas’.

We manage houses in different villages of the Natural Park and we think each village has it’s own advantages, depending on what you want for your holidays. If you are not sure where to go, just ask us and we can help you with it.

Cabo de Gata is a really stunning area with many different possibilities. It is a great place to enjoy nature and do lots of different activities around it: from trekking to trips on boats, as well as surfing, kayaking, doing geological walks, exploring the mines, watching birds . Lots of different activities that can be enjoyed all year round due to the wonderful weather.

We always try to keep our houses to a high standard, clean, well provided and we are always willing to help our guests with whatever is related to their enjoyment of their holidays.

Naturaleza y desconectar

  • 5 of 5

Ideal para los que busquen calma, naturaleza.

Esta idealmente ubicado, la playa esta un paseillo de 15 minutos andando.

Que lujo de salir de la casa y estar en el medio de la naturaleza.

Los dueños de la casa son vecinos. Muy simpáticos sabiendo también ser muy discretos.

La descripción del anuncio corresponde perfectamente.

A repetir y a recomendar...

Cabo de Gata is the place to get lost and enjoy the most beautiful beaches around. The quality of its waters and its beautiful surroundings mark the difference, allowing you to enjoy quietness and a variety of marine activities such as diving. It was declared Natural Park and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. It has more than two dozen spectacular beaches.

The house is located on the way to El Playazo, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Park, excellent diving, golden sand, and exceptional coves.

Rodalquilar, the nearest town, about 2 kms, is at the heart of the Park, a valley formed from a volcanic caldera. It is a picturesque village, with an abandoned gold mine, whose buildings have been converted into the center of the park administration: visitors centre, museum of the volcanoes, exhibition centre and botanical gardens.

You can do different types of activities, including bird watching, photography, 4x4 routes, diving
