About the property

Villa in Barranco de Quiles, Oria, Inland Almeria, Andalucia, Spain - Peaceful Location, Self Guided Walks From The Main Entrance, 5 Mins Drive To Village

Arrive distressed and leave de-stressed! Casa Erizo is fully furnished holiday accommodation or B&B with a private pool, and is a perfect base for those who just want to chill, romantics, walkers, sightseers, birdwatchers or artists, due to its quiet mountainous location. It is an old lovingly restored cortijo with 360-degree stunning views of the spectacular Sierra de las Estancias Mountains. It has the best elevated view of the Rambla de Oria valley, nestled under Piedra de Aguila (Eagle Rock with real eagles!) and is excellent for relaxing away from the crowds in real Spain. The holiday farmhouse has its own entrance and with a solar heated private swimming pool which has electric heating as well in autumn and spring. It is also an excellent base for exploring real Spain. For further information, photos and exact location see our own website (there is a link in ´Facilities´. Our registered tourist number is VTAR/AL/00174 )

About Heather Johnson

My husband (who speaks Spanish), Peter and I have been welcoming guests to our holiday accommodation and sharing our knowledge of the local area so that guests can really enjoy their time here for seven years now. We have a motto "Arrive a stranger and leave a friend...."

Here you have to live Spanish and think Spanish. I go to Spanish lessons and Sevillana dancing lessons. We do displays at the local summer fiestas, which guests love to come to.

Heather Johnson purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Heather Johnson chose Costa de Almeria

We bought this property because it is well away from the stress of normal working life!

What makes this cottage unique

The best quote in our visitors book says "Thanks for a gift you never knew you gave", which says it all!

We know what renters want and provide it so that they want to come back.

This property is a piece of paradise.

Come and share it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

" Just being able to step out of the bedroom and straight into the pool for a cool dip any time is awesome, and one day there were 2 golden eagles circling overhead!" Simon and Jess of Derbyshire

"A truly enjoyable holiday from walking, mountain biking, sightseeing or lazing by the pool - it has been great! We will be back!" Jim, Julie and Luke of Burnley

"Absolutely delightful! We have had a really fantastic time with a mixture of going out to amazing places or just relaxing here!" Ernie and Sally of Northumberland

"Didn't know what to expect but the casa surpassed our expectations, much larger than we thought and the attention to detail is second to none. The perfect place to chill. Thanks for the Reiki session which was wonderful!" Chrissie and Dave of Notts

The villa was lovely and Pete and Hearher were fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Heather and Pete recommended some lovely places to visit that were in easy reach of the villa. The villa was fantastic and we've never seen stars like it as the whole valley falls pitch black on an evening. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back!!

Superb location for a relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spot in a valley surrounded by mountains. So quiet. If you want to walk,swim,chill out yet travel about (car a must) this is the place to be. La Casa is very comfortable and 'mine hosts' great. There to help and advise if needed!

This is the real Spain.

A quiet place away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say the villa exceeded our expectations and. A great couple that own making you feel at home as soon as you arrive.

It's high up in the mountains away from the tourists,allowing you to enjoy the peace and quiet of rural Spain.

However it is ideally situated for seeing and doing things however a hire car is essential.

We can not wait to make a return visit and have no hesitation in recommending the location and the villa. If you like walking then this again is a lovely place for that and you may even see the golden eagles soaring around in the sky and if you are lucky you may spot the hedgehog

Una casa con vistas magníficas.

  • 5 of 5

Nuestra experiencia en casa Erizo ha sido maravillosa, hemos podido desconectar, nos hemos relajado y hemos disfrutado. A la casa no le falta detalle alguno, la piscina con las vistas es lo mejor, una experiencia única que sin duda alguna repetiremos.
