GREAT VILLA AND LOCATION
A great holiday. The villa was set in its own grounds, which were very large. Lovely views, and the owner visited with a bottle of tasty fresh olive oil - delicious! Owner, and Lolli etc were very friendly. Pool was great, and we did lots of walking on a night. The villa was traditional, and fitted in well with its surroundings. Amazing area, loved it, think we picked the best spot when we looked at other areas when driving home. The town is a 5 minute drive away, but the streets are very narrow so get a smaller car! The local shops are ok. The Indian takeout was good. Mojacar is good to visit for restaurants, Lidl is in Garrachua, and I would recommend going to this supermarket, fresh squid, large prawns etc, and much better than the other supermarkets close by, and a step up from our Lidl's!. We got stocked up. If your into cooking, the pots and pans are a bit basic, but we managed. Weather was excellent, no rain. It's made us consider buying a property abroad, so it must have made an impression! Met a few ex-pats in the local town, and got talking. Would recommend this place for a holiday - you won't forget it.
Lovely peaceful villa with super pool
The villa was just lovely! It's tucked away up a country road about 5 minutes drive from Turre which is the nearest town. It is c 15 minutes drive to the nearest beach at Mojacar playa. Lots of free parking right next to lovely sandy beach. We loved the peace and quiet of the villa and the views over the mountains and the hilltop town of Mojacar in the distance. The charming owner came up one day and kindly gave us some olive oil and a couple of bottles of wine he had made. He told us about a walking route around the orange grove in front of the villa and about other local places of interest. The villa is well equipped and the pool is fabulous and although the villa is not particularly modern inside this does not detract from its charm and we loved our stay here. Loli is the local agent for the property and she was kind and efficient. There is a shop in Turre that is open late and sells everything one might need. We loved the Italian restaurant called Osario about 10 minutes drive away on the road just past Mojacar on the way to the beach just before the petrol station at the roundabout. Food and service wonderful. We also like loved the giant pizzas at the Imperial. Turn left at sea front and it is a mile and half down seafront on left hand side. Black and white sign. Gets vvv busy so best to book. Again super food and great service. We went on a lovely boat trip from a seaside town to the north. Visited Cartegena for the Roman ruins and visited most of the local beaches including the one at Garrucha which had kayaks to rent and swan pedallos with a little slide. We also visited Cabo de gata which is quite a drive away and very lovely although I preferred the local beaches. All in all a great stay. Loved this part of Spain and the villa. Would highly recommend.
Beautiful rural location
Lovely property in a stunning location yet only a 2 min drive from Turre or 10 mins from the coast. The pool was a really good size for a large family (7 of us). It was extremely hot the week we were there but the owner drove over with fans for the bedrooms and there is aircon in the lounge so we coped!! Loli was always a text away with any queries which was great. We drove from Alicante airport (about 2 hours 20 mins) but motor way most of the route so a very easy and scenic drive. Quite close to attractions such as Oasys Mini Hollywood (which we visit every year as it appeals to everyone and is well worth the money). Garrucha on the coast has a fabulously large beach and lots of restaurants and Mojacar Pueblo is well worth a visit too (Weds market day). The Chinese restaurant in Turre (next to the supermarket on edge of Turre) was excellent value for money and really good service €6.95 menu of the day. All in all we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend this Cortija.
