Casa de Colores
Farmhouse | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Casa de Colores has been my home for the best part of 11 years now, and it's time you got to enjoy it as much as I do. Out of peak season, I offer B&B accommodation in one of the 4 doubles, or 1 twin bedrooms. Double occupancy, including continental breakfast, is 50 euro a night. Single occupancy is 40. For stays of 3+ nights, double occupancy rate goes down to 40 euro and single 35. You will have complete access to all areas of the house as I have a 'granny annex' with its own separate access etc. You may use the kitchen to cook for yourselves or should you wish, I can prepare something for you so you can just relax...
THE HOUSE IS ALSO AVAILABLE TO RENT AS A WHOLE.
The house is on two levels and then the garden is also on two levels. Because of steep drops, it is not particularly small child-friendly, but should you have eyes in the back of your head, you may wish to take that risk. Small well-behaved dogs are welcome for rentals and for B&B as long as other guests give their go-ahead.
As there is actually accommodation for 12, should you wish to come as a large group and have me organise something in particular for you, that can be arranged. There are some top quality golf courses nearby for those who like to hit a ball around a field, and walkers and twitchers will delight in the surroundings and the native birds that can be seen locally - hoopoes, rollers, imperial eagles, golden orioles and bee eaters are just some worth mentioning.
A car is essential if you are coming for a long stay, but if you are just coming for a few days, airport pickup can be arranged. The nearest airports are Almeria, Alicante and Murcia. Alicante and Murcia are about 2 hours' drive, but it is a very straightforward motorway journey to the turnoff which is about 20 minutes from the house.
This is not a hellraisers holiday location, but more somewhere to come and totally relax. I am here to help/advise you during your stay, and sit have a drink with you, if you so wish, but will be invisible when/if you wish to be alone.
This is rural Spain. The house is in a hamlet of only 10 houses, mostly inhabited by elderly Spanish families. Casa de Colores is in a dip and the garden is not overlooked, so you can be as free and easy as you wish here without upsetting anyone. My lovely neighbour Josefina, who will be 80 in April, is stone deaf so even if she were the type to complain about noise, you can be guaranteed she won't!

"Fantastic get away from it all holiday"
Lovely character spacious former farmhouse with great pool surrounded by olive trees. Located in a quiet hamlet in a valley with wonderful view of the hills for those looking to get away from it all.
The house is well equipped including wi fi and rooms furnished well reflecting the character of the owner, Maureen who is extremely pleasant and helpful to make your stay as perfect as possible.

We'll be back!!

"Beautiful relaxing stay in a stunning house"
I came out in July to meet my parents as they were staying for 2 weeks and had shown me pictures and told me about the house, after seeing the pictures I couldn't resist, and I was not disappointed. Wow.
The house is stunning, so much character and personality. It was perfectly clean and polished while still having that homely feeling. The bedrooms are all different and lovely, and the kitchen is gorgeous, and there are numerous sitting rooms and terraces to enjoy the coolness of the house or the sunshine.
The pool is absolutely beautiful, and not overlooked by anyone else so it's really private.
I would recommend this house to any couples/groups of adults who just want a nice, beautiful relaxing time away in their own little heaven.
Thank you for your lovely comments Alicia. I love to get positive from people who love my home as much as I do. Hope to see you here again :-)

Thank you for your lovely comments. It was a pleasure to have you and hope to see you again soon. Good to hear you enjoyed your stay.
Of course, apart from the large supermarket which is a bit of a drive away, people can also pop to the ´local´ shop at the bar 2kms away for any essentials. With the meat, fish, general supplies and bread delivery men calling to the village, it also means that if visitors don´t want to leave the house to shop, they don´t have to.
Hope to see you again soon.
