The Andalucia region
In the far South-Eastern corner of the Iberian peninsula the sun-baked province of Almeria boasts the highest hours of sunshine and lowest rainfall in Europe. The Almeria coast is said to have a perfect climate and boasts the best all-year-round weather in the whole of Spain.
Bordering the Tabernas Desert and warmed by the Mediterranean Sea, Almeria enjoys average summer temperatures of 30 °C , although you can expect plenty of weeks closer to 40 °C between May and October. The sea is particularly pleasant in the high season - actually a few degrees warmer than the Costa Del Sol! and with an average of 320 days of sunshine per year, the Costa Almeria has arguably the best climate in Europe.
The Valle del Este golf course is an 18 hole, par 71 golf course of 5,696 meters, 4,808 for ladies. The desert of Almeria surrounding the course, offering occasional glimpses of the Mediterranean, the folds of the terrain make for a spectacle of visual contrast and a perfect setting to enjoy golf in.
Wide fairways, elevated tees, receptive greens with a wide range of flag positions, as well as strategically-positioned water hazards and bunkers to make each hole an authentic challenge regardless of your standard of play.
Designed by José Canales and opened in July 2002 the course is perfectly integrated into the surrounding landscape making use of indigenous vegetation and natural contours of the land, creating a stunning oasis in the desert of Almeria . There is a good combination of very challenging holes, with other less strenuous holes. The course design and setting make it quite spectacular. The tees are particularly noteworthy, positioned on small raised platforms surrounded by volcanic rock. The fairways are wide and there are a lot of large sand bunkers on the course as well as 3 lakes and several waterfalls. All in all, a real challenge for players of all levels.
In addition to the Golf and fantastic beaches there is a vast range of activities available in Vera and the surrounding towns to suite all tastes, some of which include:-
- Aqua Vera Water Park
- Quad Bike treking
- Diving (there are a number of dive centres in Mojacar)
- Kite Surfing
- Horse riding
- Oasys Park (Mini Hollywood) Wild West theme park where a number of western classics where filmed including A Fistful of Dollars and The Magnificent Seven where Clint Eastwood starred (1 hours drive)
- Roquetas Aquarium (1 hours drive)
**More information regarding the Golf course and the activities above, including photos and directions can be found on the owners website. The link is at the bottom of the advert in the yellow box**
Vera has a long history and rich heritage dating back dating back to Moorish times, the period when Spain was invaded and colonized by Arabs. It is a walled, renaissance town and one of the most important commercial centres in the region. The town is surrounded by fertile farmland, producing fresh fruit and vegetables for local consumption and for export to northern European countries. Vera is a prosperous town, clean and appealing with a great variety of shops, many selling locally made handicrafts. On Saturdays there is an amazing street market that seems to take over the town.
Vera is increasing in popularity with tourists attracted to its many shops, good cafes, tapas bars, fancy restaurants and the friendliness and hospitality of the locals. Vera is rich in religious buildings and monuments and the town hall has one of the best historical archives in Andalucia. The town is also home to a beautiful old town square, gardens and a bull ring which continues to hold bull fights at various times during the year.
Mojácar consists of two virtually separate towns. Mojácar Playa, a 10km sprawling beach strip with hotels and Aladdin's Cave style shops on one side of the road and chiringuitos along the other and, Mojácar Pueblo, the old town - a cluster of whitewashed cubed buildings clinging to the side of the foothills of the Sierra Cabrera.
The beaches of Mojácar Playa are long, clean and un-shadowed by high rise development. A beautiful stretch of dark sand coastline with whitewashed villas nestling amongst fabulous restaurants, bars and cafes. At times the population seems almost exclusively British but Mojacar is also very popular as a holiday destination for the Spanish. The pace of life is slow, appealing to those who do not crave the hustle and bustle of the more lively Costas. Mojacar boasts a fabulous promenade stretching for 2kms or more from the Centro Commercial towards Carboneras. Take time to stroll along it and take a refreshing drink in one of the many bars and restaurants that line the route.
The Pueblo (Mojacar old town) is a delightful place to explore. Streets are narrow and steep, and car parking is challenging, but there are plenty of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to make the visit worthwhile. Take comfortable shoes and be ready for narrow, winding and sometimes hilly pathways that will increase the pulse of the less fit or older visitor! However, the effort is worth it with panoramic views, stone arches framing traditional houses decorated with local flowers. You will find charming trinket shops and arty shops with everything from trendy clothing to locally made souvenirs hanging from walls and make shift stalls.
Public activity tends to centre around the main square, the Plaza de las Flores, which is filled with street cafes, bars, boutiques and shops and has breathtaking views to the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Mojácar offers fiestas throughout the summer, regular markets, and many historical, archaeological and architectural treasures to explore. In the evenings, both visitors and residents can be found relaxing on outdoor terraces, eating, drinking or just watching the stunning sunset fall behind the mountains. You'll find a variety of different restaurants and bars, from those that cater for mums, dads and kids to those that offer a more romantic setting or an international menu. The pueblo also has a post office (Correos) and tourist information office.
The charming small fishing village of Villaricos is located approximately 10kms north of Garrucha and is in a unique position at the mouth of the Rio Almanzora and the coast. Villaricos (meaning rich village) derives its name from ancient silver mines which have their place in history, as it is from here that Hannibal paid his mercenaries when he besieged Rome. Villaricos maintains a typical Spanish feel.
Fishing and tourism are the main sources of income. There are two beaches, a pebbled expanse and an unspoilt golden sandy beach which has an excellent chiringuito and a children's playground. The latter is in a sheltered bay which, although popular with the locals is never crowded. Just beyond the village is a rugged coastline where you can relax in solitude among rock pools and sand. Villaricos has two harbours which sit at either end of the village linked by a broad promenade. It is a popular place for an evening stroll by visitors and locals alike.
Villaricos is known for its crystal clear warm waters and diving and diving school. There are many good restaurants and bars with food at very reasonable prices with both Spanish and English cuisine available and a small but lively market every Sunday in the main square.
Garrucha is a beautiful and lively fishing town that still retains much of its original charm and over the last few years it has become a popular tourist destination. Its tourist slogan is "Garrucha, Sun and Seafood".
The town is famous for the quality of its large red prawns, only fished in the local waters. It combines plenty of character, a yachting marina and fantastic local cuisine based on fresh fish caught daily and processed in the beachfront market. The local fishing boats leave the harbour in the morning and return between 17:00 and 18:30, unloading their catch to auction in the market to the local fish restaurants. Tourists can wander around the auction while it’s in progress.
Garrucha is also well known for its magnificent golden sandy beach which offers a perfect place to sunbathe, play sports or just wander along. It is the only blue flag in-town beach in Europe! One of the pleasures of Garrucha is taking an evening stroll around the bay. A palm tree lined promenade framed by white marble balustrades spans the length of the town and takes in the three ports of Garrucha: sports port, fishing port and the commercial port. There are landscaped areas to sit and relax while watching the sunset over the Mediterranean sea and play areas for children.
Garrucha also boasts plenty of shops - a supermarket, butchers, grocers, hardware, clothes and a few shoe shops (for the ladies!) as well as a pharmacy, several banks, a good selection of restaurants and a couple of ice cream parlours. Whatever you want, you'll be able to get it in Garrucha!
Finally, every Friday (unless there is a fiesta) there is a very big market that runs along two parallel streets of 500m each.

We've stayed at the apartment on numerous occasions and it's always a relaxing and de-stresing experience. The apartment itself is always clean and tidy. It overlooks 3 pools and has a roof terrace with stunning views. Most of the time we stay in and around the apartment but take days out occasionally. The village of Mojacar is a short drive away and is a charming traditional white washed village on a hillside. Again, with magnificent views. A longer drive takes us to the city of Murcia which also makes for a nice day trip.
More locally, there are some really nice beaches that are never crowded.
A car is essential for getting out and about and for trips to local supermarkets but underground parking is provided beneath the apartment.
We're not golfers but it looks like good fun for those that are. Saying that, it's very relaxing to sit on the balcony with a San Miguel and watch the golfers make their way along the fairway.
