Luxury Villa, Situated In Tranquil Setting, Private Pool, Shared Tennis Court

Overview

Property

Updated: 24-Nov-2016
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. There is a separate dining room with 8 ladder back chairs surrounding a matching elm table, and connecting through to the kitchen. 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. A much larger swimming pool can be found in front of the restaurant/bar (this also needs the card key for entry). Perfect for a family lunch, drink in the bar and attending to children while enjoy this fabulous extra facility. The card key is available on request.

About the Owner

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.

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.

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.

Really great fun in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week long stay with my friends after a levels! It provided the perfect place to simply relax in peace after the hectic exams. Although up the mountain, it was simply a 5 minute car journey down to the beach for the nightlife, of which there was plenty! There was some pretty hilarious nights out in some of the clubs -Mandala, Moma Beach and Liquid, and some quiet nights in where we cooked some delicious meals and sat around the pool in the perfect temperature. There's one balcony overlooking the mountains which is where we played card games before venturing out for the night. :) We even ventured up to the village for a cultural night out exploring the narrow alleyways and tapas bars located up the mountain! It was no problem getting back to the house, using taxis as transport. During the day, the beach was extremely close, with lots of beach bars situated close by! (Our favourites being El Cid and La Cava, and one bar called Maui Beach, which was a non stop beach party throughout the day.) It really was a great week, and I'm sure all my friends had a great time too! Perfect end to the school year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your excellent review - now you are all at different universities in various countries, I do hope you can find the time in the not too distant future, to come together again in La Noria. You were all perfect guests and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you all. Stay in touch and best of luck with your studies! I would like to add that this group was supervised by adults, as we do not take bookings from under 25yrs and single gender large groups. RB

Location

From the Owner

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.

The location of the villa is in the prestigious area, slightly away from the beach, known as La Parata. It is 1 km from the blue flag beaches of Mojacar Playa and no more than 10 minutes drive to the pueblo (village) of Mojacar. La Parata has a tranquil seclusion, it is nestled in the foothills of a range of mountains that gives Mojacar its special quality, this mountain range appears to rise up from the sea. There are a scattering of privately owned villas, mainly of moorish architecture, each one individual. This elevated position offers stunning views of both the coastline and mountain range. Within walking distance are couple of superb restaurant/bars that are extremely popular with both residents and non- residents. There is also a small shop for fresh produce. At the bottom of the hill, on the beach road, is a supermarket.

During the summer months La Parata remains quiet and private, distanced from the bustle of the beach and village yet still within easy reach. It is the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday. Mojacar Pueblo is known as the corner of enchantment, consisting of a hilltop village of white houses, narrow cobbled streets and Moorish architecture. Recently, the village has been nationally acclaimed as amongst the most beautiful in Spain. The village comes alive, with music concerts, festivals and and there is an array of interesting tapas bars and excellent restaurants. The playa (beach) is lined with popular bars and restaurants, from April through to September there are live flamenco shows or jazz/rock/popular music concerts. Beach bars (chiringuitos) turn out local dishes such as paella and fresh fish on la plancha (the grill). The beach of El Palmeral offers numerous water sport opportunities. There is also a vibrant late night life which is most popular for the younger generation.

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.

Geographically, we are located about 20 kilometres from Cabo de Gata natural park, a protected salt flat that offers surreal scenery, fauna and bird species. Closer still is the Tabernas Desert with its lunar-like terrain, its scorching wasteland. This is where the Moors surrendered to the Catholics in 1489. In more recent years it has been home to the making of many famous films as well as the Spaghetti Westerns. Mini Hollywood theme park is a great adventure for all the family. The closest city, Almeria, has a magnificent moorish fort (Alcazaba), the oldest in Spain, which is well worth visiting. The exquisite shopping along with authentic tapas bars in the gypsy quarter and smart pavement restaurants lining both sides of the Paseo de Almeria, make this an extremely enjoyable day out. The costa de Almeria region has a subtropical climate the only European city of this type with the average temperature above 19deg C. Mojacar has more than 3000 hours of sun per year and the medium yearly temperature is around 20deg C, in winter the average is around 18deg C max and 10deg C minimum. There are many other activities to be found close by - tennis, quad bike and cycle rentals, horse riding, trekking, various water sports, desert safari trips, fishing trips, water-park, go-karting, golf, hill walking, painting courses, yoga classes, gymnasiums, theme parks, retail therapy, site seeing in Cabo de Gata, day trip to Granada, are to mention just a few. Also, during the winter and spring months, skiing in Sierra Nevada is very popular, a 20 minute drive from Granada, this resort is the highest in Europe. Excellent wide pistes to suit even the novice. I have witnessed the breathtaking view from the summit of highest point, the Veleta, on a clear day one can see Africa and an expanse of the Mediterranean dotted with vessels.

Facilities

From the Owner

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?
