Fantastic property in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

It is a pity that we could only give this five stars! We spent a wonderful two weeks in this delightful, thoughtfully presented property. It is in a very peaceful location and was everything that we hoped for and more. The place was spotlessly clean and a perfect size for two people, although we spent very little time inside. The outside amenities were brilliant. So many places to choose to sit, whether wanting sunshine or shade and unlike other properties we have stayed in, this outside seating was very comfortable and ideal for relaxing. Good barbecue, lovely pool and great hosts in the very welcoming Phil and Gill. They are excellent company if you want this, but if you prefer to be left alone to enjoy your holiday, they will be unobtrusive. They gave us lots of advice on places to visit, restaurants etc and we had some wonderful days out and delicious meals thanks to them. We were very sad to leave at the end of our stay and very much hope to return.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely week's holiday in Almeria.

Gill and Phil were wonderful hosts, so warm, welcoming and friendly.

The house was perfect, spotlessly clean and provided everything that we needed for our stay. The pool and outside area were beautiful with lots of plants, a choice of seating areas and views over the mountains. It was peaceful and quiet, you really do feel away from it all.

For days out local Spanish villages and the beach are not far away.

If you are looking for a holiday with good quality accommodation, where you can switch off and relax, then this is the perfect place for you. We would highly recommend.

Thank you again!

very relaxing stay, weather still lovely for october.

Nice quiet area, however not far from Mojacar where bars and restaurants are, as well as beaches.

Great hosts, would defiantly recommend and hope to come back ourselves.

Great get away from it all tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Located in a dusty Spanish village in the rolling Andalucian contryside this property is an oasis. Mornings are met with a burst of sunlight on the south facing outdoor pool area, as the local goats meander off into the countryside. Now, where on the ample outdoor area shall I while away the first few hours. OK, at the end of the beautiful tiled pool, in full sun, before it gets too hot. Hmmm, mid morning, time for 200 laps of the pool, not too deep but not too shallow, perfect. No cracked knees on the bottom. Ah well, better have a little lunch on the ample outdoor dining table. Bit of shade. Crack a cheeky beer. Excellent, now where's my book, it's post lunch chillax time. I think I will use one of the other sun loungers this time, so I can lookout over the amazing landscape. I'm drifting into siesta, yup, see you at 4.30............zzzzzzzzzz.

Now then, time for an enlivening dip in the pool, come on wife, put that G&T down. Right 5pm, cards out, this time relaxing in the wonderful cushioned outdoor sofa and chairs. 2 hours of canasta, San Miguel by my side. Woosh. 8pm (ok, 3 hours of canasta) time to spark up the Barbie. Fish, pork, peppers, side salad, 3 euro bottle of proseco. Fresh fruit for dessert. Gees, it's gone midnight, I need to go to bed, got serious holidaying to do tomorrow. What's the programme? Well, more of today really because this place is perfect for it. Yes, kitchen is bijou, but with the BBQ, it does all you need of it. Gill and Phil are great hosts, they are there if you want them but totally invisible if you choose to do your own thing. We ended up only getting 2 hours sleep on our last night because we had such a lovely evening with them. White wine for Gill and a beer or three for Phil. Can't thank you enough for letting us enjoy your well thought out, comfortable, welcoming property. I don't know how you manage to train the swallows to entertain guests all day long or get the geckos to provide the follow up act!

Stunning and Tranquil Stay

  • 5 of 5

If it's a peaceful and tranquil holiday you want, then this is the place! The views are stunning and the relaxing aura the place gives off is wonderful. The locals are all very friendly and there are a couple of bars within walking distance, if you enjoy drinking out, and the beach and all it's amenities and bars and restaurants are only a half hour drive away. The accommodation is beautiful, with fine furnishings, and has everything you need. And the owners Gill and Phil are a lovely couple too, who are always willing to help or advise you, to make your stay even more perfect. We absolutely adored the place and every day and night that passes, makes you fall in love with the place even more. We will definitely be returning again in the very near future. Thanks for a wonderful holiday, and letting us enjoy this most wonderful part of Spain

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival, the old Farmhouse is just stunning; it is clean, functional and tidy and includes almost everything you could need. The rustic location and views are just amazing and we found it difficult to get bored of waking up to beautiful scenery every morning. The pool is lovely and we were in there on the first evening for a midnight dip and some stargazing, yes it was certainly warm enough.

The welcome we received from Gill and Phil was also warm. They were most accommodating and helpful. They suggested places to visit and shop and gave clear directions. As said in other reviews they do keep a low profile but as they live next door they are like neighbours and available if required.

You really are away from it all, apart from a couple of Tavernas (one has a small selection of groceries and does lovely Tapas) about 20mins walk away there are no big shops so a car is essential. As well as relaxing and spending the day by the pool, we visited local towns and villages, the beach at Mojacar, Mini Hollywood (for Spaghetti Western fans) and the Alhambra in Granada (for a bit of culture).

We didn’t switch on the TV and hardly ever used the living room, which I feel was wasted space apart from sending my partner there to blow dry her hair because it was adding heat to the already hot bedroom.

The kitchen and cooking facilities were adequate and comprehensively equipped albeit rather small; (the BBQ was great and very easy to use).

My only criticism is the lack of air-con. It was very uncomfortable at night time in the bedroom to start with but we kinda got used to the heat although we had to open the windows during the day to get the cool winds blowing through, which did let in the flies. Perhaps the living room could be changed to a kitchen-diner and the bedroom rearranged to include the TV, DVDs and books?

All things said we had a fabulous time. We would gladly recommend the Farmhouse to friends with a caution about the lack of air-con.
