15a CARPE DIEM
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Ground floor apartment in small complex with shared pool. Situated in the village of Los Lobos Spain it offers the ability to relax on a roof top terrace overlooking mountains, swimming in the pool or maybe visiting a nearby sandy or stoney (yes there is a choice) after a short drive.
The apartment has two double bedrooms, one with twin beds and the other with a king size bed. if needed the double sofa b in the living room can be used too. There is a fully equipped kitchen, fridge freezer and a small private terrace at the front affording views over the pool.
The village is very small but in close distance to restaurants in a fishing village, Villaricos or the town of San Juan. Within walking distance, about 30 seconds from the apartment, is a bar serving snacks. Another bar can be found in the village which welcomes visitors and sometimes (according to the mood of the Spanish owner) offers food and other services.
The area is very quiet except for one week at the beginning of August when the annual fiesta is held. This is a friendly fun event and highly recommended to all. The apartment is ideally situated for visits to an area providing caving, mountain walks, beaches and even the film set where many Westerns were filmed; Mini Hollywood.
Access easy but a car is essential.

The Andalucia region
Situated in a village surrounded by mountains but in easy distance to sandy and stone beaches. The Mediterranean Sea provides warm safe swimming. The beach choice affords visitors the opportunity to have a relaxing uncrowded sun bathe accompanied by swimming or if the desire takes you, a visit to rocky coves for snorkeling. There are weekly markets in neighbouring villages where fresh local produce can be purchased. the locals are friendly and tolerant of any attempt to speak Spanish which turns shopping into an enjoyable event.
The area has a variety of places well worth visiting. These include Mini Hollywood a film set where many Western films were set with actors such as Clint Eastwood playing a role. This venue is an exciting place to spend a day with shows being put on for visitors. Perhaps you may prefer go-carting at the local track where there is a track for little ones and a larger circuit for those inspiring racers! Numerous golf courses including Desert Springs are also nearby as is a caving location at the village of Sorbas. There is also a waterpark around 15 mins drive away at Vera. The nearby village of Villaricos offers glass bottom boat trips and scuba diving.
The mountains are a wonderful location for a walk as is the river bed surrounding the village providing an excellent backdrop to the apartment.
For those loving nature a visit to Cabo de Gato National park is a must; scenic views, an exciting drive and a salt lake visited by numerous birdlife including flamingos. The beaches at Granada are well worth a visit. The choice of eating places catering for arrange of budgets abound, advice freely given. We recommended Eugenios 10 mins from the apartment for a 5 course meal with wine costing 10e per person ( 2014).
The region hosts annual festivals normally held during July and August. Each village taking its turn to to hold an event before the festivities move on to the next.
Cuevas del Almanzora
Part of Costa Calida bordering on Almeria and no one seems to know where the border between the two is! Mild winters and hot summers make it an ideal location for both active and relaxing breaks.

"A wonderful, peaceful and resful place"
A very peaceful place, accomodation is spacious, bright, clean with everything you need. Its location is perfect as it quiet and idyllic, drive 20minutes and you are at the sea.
I loved the tranquility and the views but also only a short drive and you can be in a town or by the sea. Lots of places to visit or you can just spend time by the lovely pool or relaxing on your own private patio.
I would highly recommend whether you go on your own or as a group that this is lovely place to go. You are central for all things.
Thanks for the review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the facilities available.

"A fantastic holiday in a really friendly Spanish village"
The apartment was excellent and had everything we needed. The community swimming pool and the roof terrace were really superb. The village of Los Lobos is warm and friendly with wonderful views and its proximity to places such as Cabo de Gata park, Sorbas, Mini Hollywood and fantastic beaches is brilliant. We loved our stay so much that we actually bought a property in the same community!
Thank you for the review. Our aim is that everyone enjoys their stay and we are pleased that you did so. The community is certainly friendly without being intrusive and the local attractions fantastic. Your feed back is very much appreciated.
