Fantastic mountain villa

  • 4 of 5

We have just come back from a 2 week holiday to this lovely villa, which is in a stunning mountainside location with a 270 degree view,from the Sierra Cabrera Mountains down to the sea at Mojacar. The villa is not overlooked and the views are amazing from dawn till dusk. The pool was a good size and was kept warm by the sun, which is on it virtually all day. The villa is set in a very peaceful location and all you can hear are the birds and the occasional goat. I feel that the photographs do not do the villa justice.

A car is definitely required, as the villa is fairly remote, but the roads to and from the villa are very good, with the nearest town, Turre, being just a 10 minute drive away, with Mojacar only a 20 minute drive away. Both places have well stocked supermarkets.

The villa is on two levels and covers a large area. The interior is well furnished and is surprisingly cool despite there being no air conditioning, but there are ceiling and electric fans, which are sufficient to keep it cool.

There are several areas for eating, which all have their own spectacular views and offer periods of shade. We only used the main bedroom, which had a very comfy bed and pillows. There is a walk in wardrobe, with lots of space and hangers.

I would definitely recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday and the communication with the owner was efficient and detailed. I would consider a return visit in the future.

The resort of Mojacar Playa has numerous stretches of blue flag beaches together with all the facilities you might expect in a summer resort. Heading north the sandy coastline features many more and equally notable beaches. To the south the pristine marine environment of rocky coves and sandy inlets that make up the Cabo De Gata national park are a haven for keen divers and sailors.
