  • Private garden

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 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.

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!

"Everything you could wish for. Wonderful house, wonderfully helpful owner."

I was looking forward to writing this review because I couldn't wait to rave about Casa de Colores and its owner, Maureen who was always on the end of Whatsapp for any query we had. I thought I''d read the other reviews first for ideas and found that really, there is nothing I can add! Everyone has quite rightly raved about their experience and I can only agree with them! For more details about this property, please read the most recent previous reviews. I would only add on a practical note that this property is definitely not suitable for children younger than about 5, great for children older than 5 and great for those with pets. I wish you a happy stay!

"Wonderful Hidden Gem"

I booked this villa for a week-long holiday for our small family of three (two adults and one child). The villa was located in a tiny village and it was very private, with most locals well into their golden years. The interior of the villa was exceptionally designed with beautiful and loving touches of Moroccan theme throughout. I adored the artistic feel of it, with whole retreat ambience and could not stop admiring the small decorative details. The house was fully stocked with everything you need, even down to a full ice cube tray in the freezer! It was very clean, comfortable, quiet and so, so wonderfully decorated. The garden and pool area were another superb example of the owner's artistic design flair; surrounded by Moorish pool lights, mature olive trees and with beautiful pool house (equipped with a bar area, even containing a fridge) to chill out loungers and beautiful side tables, you had everything your could wish for. Mature lemons and pomegranates were unexpected treats we enjoyed from the garden, often making camomile & lemon ice tea :) The owner, Maureen was absolutely and totally amazing to deal with! After the initial contact, I felt as if I was chatting with a long-lost friend more than the person I have never met. She was exceptionally helpful in everything, from travel directions, information on the villa and around it, to even lending her local friends in case we needed them while there! In saying this, she gave us all the space we craved while letting us know that she is just a phone-call (or text) away for anything we might need. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from it all while staying in a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere. We were sad to leave it so soon!

"An Individual Moorish Retreat"

We had a very enjoyable stay at Casa de Colores. It is set in a hamlet that is surrounded by lovely countryside, has great views from the balconies and nice walks from the door. The house is ideal for a large group or just a couple wanting somewhere to relax totally. We hired the villa as a place large enough to hold a wedding celebration. It fitted the bill perfectly, yet after everyone had gone it was intimate enough to relax on our own and spend some private time unwinding. The lower terrace has a wonderful large walled pool area that is very private. The house itself is very spacious, with a large well equipped kitchen, a couple of balconies, four lovely bedrooms and several beautiful Moorish themed rooms to sit in. A very individual house that you can tell is a home and not just a sterile place to let out. Highly recommended.

Thank you Paul / Lynn. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and delighted your party went well. Just a pity I missed it!! :-)

"A wonderfully relaxing holiday with all amenities available."

We rented this house for our annual 'get away from it all' holiday and were certainly not dissapointed. The property is extremely well furnished and comes with everything you could ask for and more (toiletries etc), particularly as most will be flying here and will have limited baggage space. The kitchen along with having plenty of space also has the basics you may need for cooking meaning you do not need to buy every little item (pepper, oil etc.). Maureen was extremely helpful with information prior to the holiday and although was not present during the week we were there, still kept in touch to make sure everything was OK. Great house, great pool, great location.

"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.

"A Piece of Heaven!"

We spent a week here and have to say it was one of the most relaxing holidays ever! A beautiful place with stunning views. If you need a place to switch off and recharge your batteries.. then this is the place for you... Maureen was the perfect host and very welcoming.... so helpful but never in your way... 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 :-)
