Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Luxury, well-equipped villa with own private swimming pool (11m x 6m) and beautiful gardens with large patio and covered terrace. This is a lovely villa offering four bedrooms, one with double bed and en-suite, one with twin beds and en-suite and two more with twin beds. There is also a metal action bed-settee in the lounge. Cots can be provided if required and we also have two folding 'guest' beds. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped. There is a gorgeous swimming pool in the garden surrounded by patios and flower beds offering a delightful space to relax and soak up the sun. There are also a number of covered terraces around the building offering shady, tranquil places to sit if the heat gets a bit much. Or in the cooler months the conservatory offers a delightful warm place out of the breeze to relax.
There are miles of lovely sandy beaches along this coast. The nearest is an easy, flat walk of about 600m (or easy drive with plenty of parking!). The local Aquapark is on our doorstep and the supermarket is beside it. There are many restaurants and bars around the area and the famous fish restaurants of Garrucha are only 2 miles away.
There are four 18-hole golf courses within an easy drive. This is a quiet, residential area if you are looking for discos/clubs these can be found on Mojacar Playa which is about 5 miles away. Additional amenities can be found in the local town of Vera (5m) including the wonderful Saturday market. The picturesque old town of Mojacar with its whitewashed houses is a short drive away and here you will find many small bars and restaurants where you can sample the tapas before taking a stroll to the Plaza to enjoy panoramic views over the local countryside.
Mini Hollywood is about an hour's drive away - great fun for the kids or, for those looking for a bit of culture, why not drive to the old roman city of Cartagena (also about 45 mins). where you can visit the roman amphitheatre which has recently been painstakingly excavated and restored.

The Andalucia region
The Costa Almeria is reputed to have 320 days of sunshine a year, this is one of the driest areas in Europe, with average annual rainfall totalling only 7 inches. The average rainfall in July is zero and in January only one inch. Summer daytime temperatures linger around 30 degrees for about four months and on occasion climb higher. Although winter weather is cooler the days are still dry and inviting with temperatures often up around 20 degrees. December for example has a daytime average of 17 degrees. Sunshine is in abundance year round, winter average hours are between 5 and 7 while June, July and August average 11 hours and 40 minutes of sunshine per day.
It has an unspoilt coastline which makes it one of the most relaxing parts of Spain to visit. On the Costa Almeria you will find one of Spain's most impressive nature parks, the Cabo de Gata – Nijar, a desert area which receives very little rainfall but is rugged and beautiful nonetheless. Among the popular coastal villages here is San Jose, a pretty little fishing village which is nestled away in the secluded coves of the Costa Almeria.
Away from the coast whether you are a casual walker or a serious hill climber the Sierra Cabrera offers outdoor pursuits in almost guaranteed good weather throughout the year, it's 3,000ft peaks are easily accessible with the minimum of equipment. Explore the many tracks and paths in perfect solitude, the views incredible and the sunsets breathtaking. More adventurous excursions off the paths will be rewarded with caves, ruins, tunnels, wells, springs, old silver mines, ...... The list is almost endless.
The city of Almeria is well worth a visit. It is characterised by an impressive Alcazaba (Moorish fort). The war like times in which Almeria was formed even meant that its Cathedral was built to look like a fort using a Renaissance and Gothic style of architecture. The corner towers of Almeria's cathedral once held cannons to help it repel raids from North African pirates who tried to terrorise the city.
Travelling inland you will find many iteresteing little towns and villages. For example Sorbas which is set on the top of a mountain, with houses suspended over the edge of the mountain with the meandering River de Aguas below; a beautiful sight for all eyes. The river crosses extensive layers of gypsum running through deep canyons where the rainwater has created effects in caves such as the Agua and Covadura. Known for its traditional pottery, still produced using Moorish ovens for firing, the ceramics are sold from the workshops in the Barrio de las Alfarerías that can be found in the village. The visitor centre, Los Yesares, is worth a visit. Situated in the Karst of Sorbas (an area of Natural Beauty), which protects some of the most important outcrops of gypsum in Europe. The Cueva del Agua and Cueva de Covadura go for several kilometres and date back to prehistoric times. You can have accompanied visits to the Cueva del Yeso and enjoy the spectacle for yourself.
Or Nijar which has been described as one of the most picturesque towns in the whole of Spain comes highly recommended as a place to see, a visit made all the more pleasant thanks to the many reasonably priced bars and restaurants offering delicious local dishes. Or what about a visit to Lucainena - nestled in the olive groves this village originally mined Iron Ore but after the civil war the mines gradually closed and the old railway that took the ore to the coast became derelict. Recently it has been transformed into one of Spains Via Verdes (greenways) and is ideal for walking and cycling as it passes through some stunning countryside. Lucainena has a number of bars that serve outstanding tapas and meals, a small shop that caters for all essentials, a pharmacy and even a luxury hotel that boasts two restaurants and a tapas bar.
Nearer to home is the charming and traditional Andalucian hill top village of Bedar tucked into the slopes of the Los Filabres mountains. This ancient village dates back many centuries, its roots are in mining, although nowadays it also enjoys a modest yet thriving tourist industry. It has managed to retain its peace and tranquility, enjoying panoramic views over the fertile valley below and also towads the Mediterranean coast of Almeria province. The village features a number of good restaurants and bars, most notably the Miramar which has served traditional Andalucian dishes for many years, its shoulder of lamb famous throughout the region.
Travelling up the coast in the other direction you will find the ancient city of Cartagena. Cartagena is the main Seaport of the Murcia region. It has been inhabited by most great Mediterranean Empires that have conquered the Iberian Peninsula sometime. Cartagena is a city full of monuments, with many archaeological sites and outstanding buildings of historical interest, together with the charm of the sea and the typical bustle of a port city. Dirty and very polluted in the past (due to the nearby Refinery), the new redevelopments (like the initiative "Cartagena, Port of Culture") and restorations have turned it into a major tourist destination and it is most certainly well worth a visit.
For golfers the region offers a variety of courses. Desert springs is a magnificent championship venue just 15 mins away from our villa and is the only true desert course to be found in Europe, its fairways narrow and often winding, its greens well protected and undulating, it is probably one of the finest golf courses in Spain. Even nearer is Valle Del Este, another fine venue and a great test of golf. Full of narrow driving holes and challenging carries, Valle Del Este definitely merits a visit. The course at Aguilas about 30 mins away is a challenging course with many ravines and water flanked holes. Marina Golf in Garrucha is only 10 mins away overlooking the sea but not as challenging as some of the other courses Cortijo Grande just down the mountain from Cabrera is watered uniquely by an underground volcanic lake and is in a very picturesque setting beneath the towering Sierra Cabrera mountains, this little 9 hole golf course is rarely buisy.
The beach at Puerto Rey runs north-south for 7kms, from just south of Villaricos down through Vera Playa (where 1km is designated 'naturist' by the council) to Puerto Rey and on to Garrucha. As with most modern coastal resorts Puerto Rey offers good facilities including bars, restaurants, supermarkets and adequate public transport options. For more options you can walk north from Puerto Rey to the small harbour village of Villaricos or south to the larger fishing town of Garrucha, which has excellent facilities and dining options.
Puerto Rey is also home to a large water park, which provides fun for all the family, with lots of rides, slides, swimming pools, play areas and restaurants.

"Tranquil, convenient...a perfect cocktail!"
This was my second visit to the villa, and my first impressions were correct. A beautiful location, with easy access to everything you need, including golf. I would recommend this place without hesitation to families/groups who enjoy quiet, relaxing atmospheres.
The villa itself has all the necessary attractions, such as a swimming pool, and provides a private environment in which to relax. Golf courses of real quality are in abundance, so go for it...

"Relaxed Stay. Beautiful Villa. Sandy Beaches A Walk Away."
We wanted a relaxed family holiday, a fantastic location to explore from and a stunning villa with a private pool suitable for children of different ages. We found this and much more at Casa Nuestra. I can't recommend this villa and location enough! So many beaches nearby and within walking distance, which when you have a 5 year old with you really has to be within walking distance! 15 mins has to be 15 mins. The manager of the villa welcomed us on arrival and left a contact number should we ever have been in need of any assistance. After this we were left in complete privacy to enjoy this marvellous villa and location. Large sandy beaches, brilliant blue sea, a very private villa, a wonderful pool with water warmed by the sun, historic towns within easy reach...what more could you want! Fantastic holiday!

"Lovely villa, spacious, great location."
We stayed for about 10 days at Casa Nuestra, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The villa had everything you could possibly want for a holiday; very well equipped with amazingly close access to the beach and to bars and restaurants (walking distance). The area around the villa is very pleasant and the whole holiday was helped by the fantastic weather. Very close to the mountains and the beach. Perfectly located for cities along the coast for day trips too! We visited Garrucha, Mojacar and Cartagena.
Beds were very comfortable and the living space was very sociable. Lovely outdoor space for dinner, bbqing, swimming and sunbathing. All in all a great holiday!

"A well equipped villa in a convenient location with a great pool area"
This lovely, spacious villa is in a peaceful residential location with an easy drive from Murcia airport. We found it well equipped with plenty of family living space. We were particularly impressed by the beautiful pool area with the option to remain outside in the covered shaded area during the hottest part of the day. The villa is surrounded with a lovely garden with fruit trees, olive trees, wisteria & cacti and feels very private.
There is a local beach & shops a short walk away and plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from in the evening. Garrucha also offers a craft market in the evening which is well worth a visit. A short drive along the coast there are many smaller beaches which are really peaceful even at peak season. We had a lot of fun exploring local towns particularly Mojacar which was the kids favourite with lots of tiny shops & alleyways.
We had a fun, relaxing holiday and would thoroughly recommend this property due to its size, location and facilities
