About the property

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 8, magnificent sea and mountain views

This charming property is quite unique, a single storey, low build villa nestled along a hilltop plateau. Its prestigious position is in a residential area known as La Parata. It has outstanding sea and mountain views. As one of the original villas, it has been constructed with larger than average rooms each with double aspect allowing directional breezes to flow throughout the property. The four bedrooms are situated on the northern side of the villa surrounded by an established garden helping keep the property cool in the hot summer months. Air conditioning and ceiling fans are also in situ. There are two undercover outside terraces, one looking towards the sea and across to the swimming pool terrace - this has been set up as a dining area with a table that expands to easily accommodate up to 12 people. During the day the terrace enjoys complete shade. The second terrace is south facing, which welcomes the sun in the winter months and an evening relaxation as the sun disappears over the mountains during summer. The swimming pool terrace is on a lower level and accessed by steps. Low wicker armchairs for seating up to 8 persons, two matching glass top tables, plant filled terracotta pots and a barbecue tucked away to the side are the furnishings. This terrace is accessed from the lower swimming pool terrace and the dining room through double glass doors, it boasts magnificent views of the Sierra Cabrera mountain range along with an archaeological site of a 'bronze age' village. The outside terraces are quite private, they are not overlooked.

The interior has been furnished with antiques, prints and paintings and yet left quite minimal. Main reception room has double doors that open on to the exterior dining terrace - this room is furnished with a 3 seater sofa and a matching smaller 2 seater, a couple of cane armchairs with an extra armchair located in the entrance hall. TV, DVD/CD player all with stereo surround, sky satellite and spanish channels are all available, Blue tooth device for MP3/ipod/Smartphone and WiFi.

The kitchen has recently been updated; it has a new stainless steel range with electric fan oven, five gas hobs and central griddle burner, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, numerous cooking utensils and coffee machine. The utility area houses the washing machine, ironing board, iron and clothes dryer, along with an additional large freezer and also small refrigerator. An outdoor 'table tennis' table is located in the garage that can be wheeled outside if preferred. The master bedroom is simply furnished with a bronze four poster bed with vi-spring mattress, an armchair and plenty of wardrobe space. The view of the sunrise from this room is quite spectacular! The ensuite is lined with Carrera marble, it consists of a bath with hand shower, heated towel rail, vanity unit with shaver socket, hairdryer and a walk in glass enclosed shower. All other bedrooms are equally furnished to the same standard and the bathrooms have all been recently designed with marble and modern shower enclosures and bathroom fittings. There are two bedrooms that have twin beds that can be adapted to make into a kingsize bed should this be preferred. Three bedrooms have their shower/wc ensuite and the remaining bedroom has the shower/wc close by in the hall way.

The pool terrace is conveniently situated on the south side of the property achieving maximum sun. There are also mature pine trees that give partial shade. Up to 8 sun beds can be comfortably placed around the pool and there is a poolside shower. A wire work table and 4 matching chairs can be positioned in several places (according to sun or shade), and there is a built in banquette seating area with cushions. Sun parasol is provided. The property has a space for parking that can easily accommodate 3 cars.

The tennis court is a short walk away - its use is for members only, a card key is required for entry.

About Rosemary Bentley

I have enjoyed having a second home in Mojacar since 1982, my husband and I became enchanted by the village and the beautiful beaches Mojacar has to offer. Over the years, we have built friendships of all nationalities and diverse interests. In contrast, we live and work in the hustle and bustle of city life. Our daughter is currently away studying at university.

Rosemary Bentley purchased this villa in 2012

Why Rosemary Bentley chose Mojacar area

Mojacar, for us, has always been a blissful contrast for living in London. We can't wait to get down there and relax. It also has a unique sub-tropical climate giving us 3000hrs of sunshine in a year, yet only a 2hr flight away. My husband originally found the area whilst being involved in the film industry. The beaches are delightful, unspoilt, pristine water and many are secluded. I love the simplicity of Spanish life, spanish food, especially their tapas - usually complimentary with a beer or glass of wine. As a family we enjoy boating, kayaking and a game of tennis. We are experienced divers and find the sites in the protected areas of the national park of Cabo de Gata have some fabulous marine life, reefs and numerous old wrecks. We usually experience the sightings of dolphins, pilot whales and even sea turtles. Both my daughter and myself enjoy painting and photography, the light is such a wonderful asset. Married to an Australian, we are often entertaining friends or family that are passing through Europe and they simply find the necessity to drop by for a relaxed visit. Last year I found myself in the situation of being able to purchase this second property - a very special villa, one that I had known and admired over time. Casa La Noria is quite unique, all one level with generous dimensions, it was one of the original villas to be built on a preferential plot, in the beautiful setting known as La Parata. The previous owner had spent a happy 35 years living there. Our own villa is very close to La Noria and when at home, I am always ready to help and be on call for any questions one may have.

What makes this villa unique

Casa La Noria as it currently is - is very special! I work as an interior designer and in years to come there will be a few subtle changes, making the property even more desirable.

You have to come and judge for yourself - Last year was my first year of ownership, the property was generously reviewed by six different clients, all giving it praise and the top score of 5/5. This year I am hoping to draw the interest of a wider clientele, as the winter climate can be most agreeable with temperatures reaching the mid 20Deg C, heating is provided by a log fire, air conditioners and radiators. The winter sun is perfect for day trips - site seeing the local towns and cities, mountain walks or even a venture to the mountains for a day of skiing. We have often spent time relaxing on the beach, swimming in the sea and the next day we are skiing down a slope. How many places in the world is this possible?

1st class equestrian centre 2 kilometres. There are 5 golf courses close by. Two of these courses of both within a 10 minute drive. MARINA GOLF - Par 72/5464 18 holes designed by Ramon Espinosa in 2000. Split perfectly in two with far reaching views over the sea. Dramatic 4th hole, par 5, with an elevated tee is the signature hole. 3 lakes provide water hazards. MACENAS - Par 65 18 holes designed by Enrique Saenger in 2007 - Although a short course, requires concentration. Good shot making will be reward but undulating greens and numerous bunkers will make par a good score Each hole has its own challenges with varying levels of difficulty. Views across course and surroundings are equally impressive. VAL DEL ESTE - Par 71/5391m 18 holes designed by Jose Canales in 2002. One of the Prime Golf Courses in Southern Spain. CORTIJO GRANDE - Par 72 9 holes. DESERT SPRINGS - Par 72/6179m 18 holes designed by Peter McEvoy. Magnificent fairways surrounded by creeks, desert and water hazards


Excellent! 4.6/5 -

A relaxing holiday in a location that was perfect for our family.

  • 4 of 5

The villa has a nice traditional Spanish style but it includes contemporary features such as modern bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen, air conditioning and TV. The wifi is aviailable but could be faster and more consistent. The swimming pool area is picturesque with lovely mountain views and an outdoor shower. Garden trees around the property provide some shade but another umbrella for the poolside area would be a benefit. Overall we were very happy with the villa and its location, as La Parata is delightfully quiet but only a short distance from the main tourist strip, beach and Mojacar town.

Pluses and a big minus

  • 3 of 5

Our seven day stay at La Noria had many pluses and a big minus. The villa was perfect for our family of 6 and had a great view from the Eastern terrace. We enjoyed the comfortable living area with its fireplace and were happy to have a table to seat eight. The kitchen was acceptable and the pool was lovely to look at.

Our stay was marred by the lack of sufficient power. We had to continually flip the breaker for the first two days in order to maintain minimal appliances and heaters. Apparently there had been storms the week prior to our arrival, but at least 5 days of dry weather occurred before we entered the villa. Our relatives who own a villa in Mojacar did not have any such trouble and they were present during these dates.

We were told by the manager/helper that an electrician would be over to check things out the second day, but that did not occur. Several of us took cold showers and we could not use the oven to prepare our dinner.

While in Granada for an overnight stay, the electrician came and upon our return the power issues were much better. The owner's husband was quite apologetic after we returned from Granada, but that was a bit late. The bedrooms continued to be cold, but we honored the advice given and did not turn up the thermostats.

I would encourage the owner to add rugs to the bedrooms if the villa is to be rented in the winter. Cold floors are not expected in a villa of this level. I would imagine that a warmer month would be ideal for this rental.

A Partially Satisfied Visitor

Owner's Response: IT was unfortunate timing and we were very apologetic to our guests, had they have needed anything extra it would have been provided. Rugs had been placed in 3 out of the 4 bedrooms. Unprecedented floods had hit MOJACAR the week before the arrival of our American guests which was during the Xmas holiday period. Two people drowned in a nearby village and it was the worst rain deluge in over 30years as reported in the local newspapers. Many people were without electricity for a few weeks as were some neighbours along with nearby homes damaged by flooding. Fortunately we had no flooding and had electricity restored to the property after a few days prior to guests arriving but not to full capacity as power lines had been severely damaged. We tried explaining to our guests the situation and it would be best not overload fuse board by putting too many electrical appliances on at the same time. The electrician came at his earliest, bearing in mind it was Xmas and others were much worse off, to find nothing wrong with property's electrics only a reduction in service. We later found the property had been functioning with both heaters blowing warm air and also air conditioners blowing cold which would have been a contributing factor. RB

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

Having visited Mojacar for the past 15 years we thought we had seen most types of accommodation in the area. that is until we stayed at Rosemary's villa.

The views were fantastic, the kitchen, dining area's. bedrooms, lounge and the parking were all first class. The villa was spacious and very comfortable. the kitchen was very well equipped with everything you would require to make any type of meal.

We had a wonderful stay, and with eight of us, there was room for all.

I would recommend this Villa to anyone who likes a bit of luxury without spending s complete fortune.

Peacefull relaxing villa

Wonderful stay in a beautiful villa. All bedrooms have their own bathroom. Lots of out door space, great house for larger group as never feel on top of each other. Lovely to come together for a sundowner on the terrace looking out to sea. Stunning views. Will definitely be back!

Beautifully furnished, wonderful setting, idyllic!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is furnished very tastefully and the layout is ideal for a family or a group of friends, with two twin rooms and two master bedrooms. The reception room was spectacular with a stylish interior and great views of the sea. The outside space is perfect - a perfectly-sized pool with outside dining facilities and plenty of room for sunbathing! The views of the sea were breathtaking, all of which made for the most wonderful and unforgettable week away.
