About the property

Stunning location - spacious outside living - pool to die for

A beautiful casita in the mountains behind the coastal resort of Mojacar.

Our pool was designed, built and positioned in such a way that you have 360o views of the surrounding mountains and an unbelievable uninterrupted view of the sea and coastline. The pool itself is substantial - 10 x 5 metre mosaic tiled pool with a roman end for easy access with a shallow stepped roman end ideal for children to paddle and play or for you to sit at the end of the day admiring the sea views with a glass of wine. To quote our local pool maintenance man “this has got to be the biggest and best positioned pool in the area” and we agree. There is also a shaded court yard area ideal for mealtimes or relaxing out of the midday sun. The best thing of all is that you are not overlooked by surrounding neighbours so privacy is guaranteed.

Our two bedroomed casita (recently refurbished\0 with a private swimming pool is just a 5 minute drive from the quaint Spanish hillside village of Bedar. There is a fully equipped kitchen area and lounge. One bedroom has a double bed and the other bedroom has two single beds. There is a smart TV, and wifi. If you are looking for a peaceful, quiet, private, secluded and relaxing holiday then this location is perfect. There are spectacular sea and mountain views, extensive terraces for enjoying your morning coffee or evening beer, gin and tonic or cocktail and for alfresco dining, or just enjoying the 360 o views around the property . Life does not get much better than this. If it is a break away from the hustle and bustle ofeveryday life then this is the location for you. The photographs cannot convey the peace and tranquillity of this hilltop location where the sounds of the birds (occasionally and eagle) circling above are the only interruptions to the peace and quiet while taking a dip in your own private pool. You may occasionally have a visit from one of the wild tortoises or rabbits.

There are plenty of opportunities to explore the surrounding areas of natural beauty including the Cabo de Gata, natural park only 30 minutes away or if you want something with a bit more culture and history the city of Granada is a couple of hours away with extensive cosmopolitan bars and restaurants and historical sites such as the magnificent Alhambra or the city of Almeria also with extensive shopping and historical places of interest but if you just want to stay close to home then the beaches and seafront bars in Mojacar and Garrucha are just a mere 15 minutes’ drive away. Bedar village also has a handful of restaurants and bars, a village supermarket, bank and pharmacy. If you enjoy wondering around markets then there is a market nearly everyday: Heurcal Overa – Monday; Los Garllardos – Tuesday; Mojacar – Wednesday; Garrucha or Turre – Friday; Vera – Saturday and there is a Rastro market in Mojacar old village on a Sunday morning where you can purchase anything from Spanish bric a brac to handmade jewellery. Mojacar old town is an engaging beautiful hillside white washed authentic Spanish destination with cobbled streets and Moorish appearance. The coastal Mojacar has 17 kilometers of unspoilt beaches with play areas for children, bars and restaurants all along the seafront. The seafront areas have been extensively landscaped and rejuvenated over recent years.

Both Almeria and Murcia airports are easily accessible. Almeria airport is a mere 40 minutes drive away and Murcia is just over an hour away with an easy motorway drive taking you directly to the area. There are budget airlines flying into both airports on a regular basis throughout the summer. You will be provided with a detailed map of the location when you book giving directions and landmarks.

About Kathryn

A little bit about us

In 2000 we decided we needed an adventure and so gave up our jobs, sold our assets in the UK and headed towards Spain to fulfil a dream of building our own house. Not using builders or tradesmen but by doing almost everything ourselves.

It was a challenge and an adventure. Our children had grown up and left home. There were no definite plans for a location although Almeria region was the hot favourite because of the extent of the wide open spaces. We hadn’t even thought through any designs or in fact any plan at all except we knew we wanted an adventure.

We had previously been out to the Mojacar area and liked what we saw, there was a really nice atmosphere to this relatively unspoilt resort, surrounding rural areas, beautiful coastline and the mountain region behind Mojaca which reminded us a little of the hills around our home city of Sheffield.

Finding the area was easier than finding the land to build. At first the areas around Mojacar were not giving us the views we wanted from the house. We wanted the feeling of space around the house and the lowlands weren’t giving us that. After driving around for several weeks we went to look at a piece of land in Lubrin. Although the land in Lubrin was not suitable the drive back from Lubrin to Mojacar took them down from El Campico to Bedar and they stopped off in this beautiful Spanish village with its white washed houses and cobbled streets. While walking through the village we came across and advert in a village office window in the square and saw a Se Vende sign for a plot of land and a hand written telephone number to contact. Fortunately they answered in English and it was an estate agent in Torrevieja. They were representing the Spanish land owner in Bedar. They directed us, over the phone, to the plot that was for sale. As soon as we arrived on the plot we knew this was it – it had everything we were looking for – including sea views and mountain views. The adventure had begun.

Kathryn purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Kathryn chose Bédar

The unique location of this property has spectacular views to the coast, mountains, Mojacar old town, 360 degree views to enjoy. Watch the sun rise out of the sea in the mornings and set over the mountains in the evening. Whatever time of day there is something to enjoy here on our mountain retreat.

Living the Dream

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a month at the holiday cottage and our stay was fantastic. The cottage is comfortable and cosy with great outdoor space to enjoy the spectacular views. The sunrise each morning is awesome and we've never seen as many stars at night!!

The pool is lovely and beautifully kept and to have it all to yourself is very special.

If it's peace and tranquillity that you are seeking then this holiday cottage has it in abundance.

We can't wait to return.

Cosy, clean and well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week stay at this villa after a wonderful and relaxing holiday in rural Bedar. We were greeted on arrival by the owner who could not have done more for us throughout our stay! The villa was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was an ideal size for the two of us. The views from all around were spectacular and the location was perfect for a peaceful and quiet getaway. There was a good sized pool and there was plenty of space for relaxing both in the sun and shade. Already planning to return next year!

Secluded getaway in the mountains! Perfection!!!

  • 4 of 5

Just about to fly away from an incredible holiday . I can't express enough what a gorgeous place this is.

The views are stunning and the feeling of quiet and away from it all is spot on!

We went for a honeymoon, a perfect choice having complete privacy.

The pool is beautiful and a real treat to spend the days with.

I gave this property a 4 star but so much is a 5.. there are a few little bits that are still a working progress , and once finished will make it a 5 star. I'm excited to see it develop and I will definitely be back to see what the owners continue to do.

Property was just what we required neat and tidy, very clean with everything you needed in a villa.

  • 5 of 5

Great place in the mountains with breath taking views, great villa and a fantastic poo,l all very well maintained, just a great place to stay to relax but within reach of the real world. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a break from the rig-moral of daily life. A place to escape too.

We will be going back

Sad and rundown

  • 1 of 5

Could be a very beautiful place, The pictures tell a very different story to the to the venue, unfortunately, it is unfinished and uncared for..no aircon in 40 degrees..Top price, shabby but not chic.

Owner's Response: We are so sorry you were disappointed with your stay especially this being our first year. It is so much more encouraging when we receive the 5 star reviews but we do try to learn from our mistakes such as the dripping outside tap you brought to our attention has now been fixed and the plants we mistakenly planted around the pool which didn't survive the 40 degree summer heat will be replaced next year with something more appropriate to the climate. We do try to learn from these reviews and hopefully improve for future guests.

A hidden gem, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week between pool, terrace and nearby villages and it was one of the best holidays we have had!

We stayed in the cottage and everything was just perfect.

Views to die for and not one sound.

Highly reccomendable to anyone looking for some peace and quiet and that feeling of being 'at home'.
