About The Owner

The owners live in the UK and love the fact that they can escape to the sunshine and enjoy the tranquillity and amazing scenery of their perfect Villa.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2002

Why The Owner chose Albox

We went in search of a piece of land that we could build a property to our own specification we found the peace and tranquillity of inland Almeria perfect. The plot was not over looked and we loved the privacy it offered, although not far from the social aspect when desired. The panoramic mountain views are fantastic. The easiness of the location of the villa is perfect, after a short flight and trip along the motorway you can be in the pool in no time at all, surrounded by the established palm trees, relaxing and indulging in the perfect setting, maybe a glass of wine on the patio or sunbathing on the roof terrace or exploring the magnificent orchard, whatever you desire from your holiday we are sure you will find it here.

What makes this villa unique

Amazing panoramic views, not overlooked by any other property, peaceful but not far from the bustling town of Albox, crystal clear, larger than average swimming pool. pool, own orchard and electric private gates leading to driveway. Large furnished patio area and roof garden.

New for this year is a beautiful shaded area complete with rattan furniture and lighting, here you can sit and enjoy the stunning views day or night.

Lovely relaxing trip

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this house, the plot is really quite large, the pool was perfect for our two kids to jump in and out of all day and its very private, not at all over looked. We really appreciated the shaded area in the garden (this was really what sold us on the house) it was so nice to sit there and read or play board games in the shade with a nice breeze in from the mountains. Would say the pictures of the inside of the house don't really do it justice, we thought it would be tiny, and it looks tiny when you turn up, but actually its a bit like a tardis, so many bedrooms and bathrooms, this was more than enough space for us and the TV area is actually very cosy. Perhaps this is the norm for Spanish mainland properties, we have mostly holidayed in Turkey or on the islands, but we were so incredibly impressed to have wifi and netflix and all the TV stations, that was kind of game changing for us lol! Highly recommended. Defo need a car tho, everywhere is a drive. Perfect for us since we were looking to get away from everything.

Just like it looks in the photos.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at this villa. The pool is a very good size. There are plenty of sun beds and places to sit and relax and it is completely private The air conditioning and fans are excellent so despite extremely high temperatures outside we were never uncomfortable. We were met by Louise and Steve who were very pleasant and responsive when we had a minor problem. The villa is very well-equipped on the whole. There are even books and adaptor plugs. You're about 40 mins to an hour away from most of the attractions we wanted to visit - beach, Almeria Alcazabar, Cartagena roman amphitheatre etc but actually we were often quite happy to stay at the villa and hang out by the pool. My tiny niggles would be that the kitchen could do with more cooking equipment and the bed in the main bedroom was a bit squeaky. However overall this was an excellent holiday and I would recommend this villa.

Great Property and Outdoor Space

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Louise and Steve who were friendly and helpful and showed us the way to the villa. There was a plentiful welcome pack which was fortunate as we had forgotten supermarkets are closed on a Sunday. The pack contained enough for us to eat and drink well until the next day.

The villa itself is clean, spacious and well furnished and equipped with plenty of bath and beech towels for use.

However, it is the outdoor space which makes this place so special. It is a few minutes drive outside Albox and semi rural so not too isolated. The garden is beautiful and immaculate, the pool was clean and tempting. The pergola was perfect for any time of day from morning coffee to late night caps.

We had intended to eat out most evenings but quickly changed our plans and choosing to remain at the villa, eating in the garden every evening.

I had some communication with the owner and the responses were very quick and accommodating when we changed our plans last minute.

We enjoyed it so much , we have already booked to go again in January.

Just like the pictures.....

  • 5 of 5

The villa is just like the pictures...... It is very clean and beautifully decorated. The furniture is comfortable as were the beds. The cooking facilities were excellent and we also used the BBQ a lot. Lots of kitchen utensils, cutlery, glassware, pots and pans. The grounds outside have a good mix of sunny and shaded areas. We spent many hours under the gazebo which provides shade and the furniture was comfortable. The pool is a very good size, and the sun terrace is a good place to catch the sun. As we had everything we needed, we didn't feel the need to venture far, however we did find a fabulous Tapas Bar in Albox, its on the corner with red parasols. Would highly recommend...

Fantastic stay at this stunning villa with gorgeous views. The villa has everything you could possibly need from games for the kids to every type of kitchen utensil possible! Fab pool which we used from early morning until midnight swims. Loved the shaded area which gave us a great place to sit out of the sun and looked gorgeous lit up of an evening. Had some great days out and found some beautiful beaches. Overall - fabulous holiday in a beautiful place!

Car: recommended


There are beaches like San Juan and Villaricos are close by and also have a Sunday market. The resort of Mojacar is approximately 35 minutes drive away. These beaches have been given the blue flag award for cleanliness, they never get overcrowded which make them extremely safe for children.

San Juan have amazing fish restaurants situated on the beach, well worth a visit.


The nearest airport is Almeria which is approx 45 minutes drive from the Villa. Murcia airport is approx 1 hour 30 minutes. Alicante is approximately 1 hour 50 minutes. A new international airport is planned for 2016 which will be only 40 minutes away. All the airports are accessible by the excellent motorway system. Most budget airlines fly to these airports. To appreciate the area fully we recommend care hire.


The quaint town of Albox is only a 5 minute drive. Here you will find everything you a looking for including local tapas bars, restaurants, shops & a supermarket. Fiesta's take place at certain times of the year, which are a must to see. The local market is held on Tuesdays where you can buy fresh fruit, vegetables & meats, also clothes & gifts.

The historic Saliente Monastry is 5 minutes drive. The Velez Blanco Castle is 30 minutes drive.

Further Details:

The local market town of Albox is only 5 minutes drive and has an array of shops, banks, chemists, supermarkets, with a selection of cosmopolitan restaurants including English, Italian, Chinese, Indian and French. The Market is held on a Tuesday and there is also a small market on a Saturday that sells mainly fresh produce. This part of Andalucia is famous for its fiesta where Spanish and English relax over a beer or sangria.
