"House with great facilities on site"
My husband and I had stayed at another apartment also owned by John and Desho and decided to try the townhouse in Almeria and invited two of our friends. The house is spacious with three bedrooms and a generous sized living area (with comfortable sofa bed). The facilities are excellent as you have an indoor heated pool and outdoor pool plus gym, jacuzzi, sauna and tennis courts.
The beaches on this part of the coast stretch for miles and are very clean, with some good restaurants nearby. Mojacar is a short car journey and has an excellent beach, as well as a number of bars and restaurants. The old part of Mojacar is very traditional with shops and a market and views are fantastic from the highest point. In Vera there are a couple of excellent restaurants and this is a short taxi journey from the house.
Again this accommodation is great value and we would recommend staying here.
