About the property

8 person Villa in Desert Springs Golf Resort, Cuevas de Almanzora, Nr.Vera

Villa Mirasol is situated adjacent to the 5th green of the Desert Springs Golf course, with superb views over the course. It is just a short drive from the picturesque harbour of Villaricos, and the ancient Moorish village of Mojacar on the coast of Almeria. Mountains on three sides surround it, there is plenty to explore. This is still a relatively undiscovered coastal area so the miles of nearby beaches never have more than a scattering of bodies. Other attractions include the beautiful villages of Mojacar, Vera and Cuevas del Almanzora, with their narrow cobbled streets and Arabic architecture. The Cabo de Gata National Park is another place worth visiting. Other golf courses in the area include Valle del Este, Marina Golf Mojacar, and Aguilon. The Crocodile Club has a large swimming pool, tennis, volleyball, go karting and a gym.

Saturday to Saturday rentals only during for high season.

Check-in 14:00, Check-out 10:00

Guestbook comments from the manager

D.Gordon/Aug2011: "We had a great time and the fact that it felt like we were borrowing someone’s villa rather than living in a typical rented villa with 6 spoons, forks and so on was a major plus for the villa".

S Dinning/Aug 2011: "Just wanted to say thank you for letting us share your beautiful place. It is so lovely to come to a villa that feels like a family home with everything so well provided".

The Pink Palace - A place to relax and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Arrived 2/7/17 Departed 16/7/17

Not visited Desert Springs for 3 years. We started visiting and have been regular visitors to The Pink Palace since 2004. Once again as always we found the golf course and villa to be a peaceful and relaxing place to be. Both in excellent condition. You are a short drive away from Morjacar, Vera and Gurrucha Not to mention the beach and Water Park.

Our stay was chilled and appreciated by all of us.

A comfortable home from home

  • 5 of 5

The villa was well appointed, we lacked nothing and were very comfortable. The aspect overlooking the 5th hole was pleasant and the passing golfers were friendly! The clubhouse and other facilities were easily walkable and we felt private but not cut off and remote from civilisation. The pool was lovely and our grandson was raring to be in the water before breakfast! A really relaxing stay and we would definitely return.

Well equipped, well maintained villa with nice touches such as spanish cookbook. Rooms are a good size and very comfortable, decent showers and comfortable beds. Owners were helpful and quick to respond to any questions.

The resort is very friendly and well looked after. Ideal for golfers or families. you do need a car but plenty of supermarkets and restaurants within 10-20 mins drive.
