Our two bedroom town house is in the secure and gated FuenteMar complex in Vera Playa, Garrucha on the Costa de Almeria, the driest and sunniest costa in Spain. The complex is situated only 40 minutes from Almeria airport and has pretty,well maintained gardens and two lovely swimming pools with a separate paddling pool for children. It's just about 7 minutes (max) stroll to 4 miles of uncrowded, blue flag beach (lifeguards present during the high season) and there is an excellent choice of bars and restaurants all within walking distance. There is a list of recommended restaurants kept at the house for information. Well stocked supermarkets are approximately one minute walk from the house and there are larger supermarkets within 5 minutes drive. Perfectly situated for the whole family - Golf lovers will be delighted at the nearest golf course being just 5 minutes drive away and three other championship courses within 15 minutes drive, Desert Springs being one! The Aqua Park is within 5 minutes and is on the excellent, reliable and very cheap bus route if you don't want to use a car. Fabulous beaches, markets, history, sports etc all within 10 minutes from the house.

The Andalucia region

The Costa Almeria is as varied as any of the Spanish Coasts. The coast is completely unspoilt.

The Gulf of Almeria, often referred to as the "Costa de Almeria", is a 217 km long coastline in the province of Almeria in the southeast of Andalucia, between the provinces of Granada and Murcia.

This scenic coast is very varied, there are wide and long sandy beaches as well as small bays, dry desert landscapes as well as green oases, fruit and vegetable plantations, forests and mighty mountain ranges.

The sun shines over 3,000 hours a year here, and the sky is usually cloudless and bright. The climate is subtropical, Mediterranean, hot and dry. The year-round average temperature is 18/19 º C and in winter the water temperature is warmer than the air temperature, which makes Almeria an attractive tourist destination all year round.

The dramatic desert landscapes of Almeria have been discovered by the film industry too, and several far-west movies have been filmed here as well as "Indiana Jones", "Conan the Barbarian" and "The Last Crusade" by Steven Spielberg , just to name a few.

At the north of the Costa de Almeria are the fabulous beaches of Vera Playa and Garrucha. A little further south is Mojacar which successfully combines the popular beach holiday (Mojacar Playa) with the hillside white village (Mojacar Pueblo) that tourist love to explore. Mojacar is very much a tourist destination whilst Vera Playa and Garrucha still retain their Spanish charm and are not as 'touristy'. This is where the Spanish go on holiday, fabulous seafood, all caught locally, fantastic beaches and friendly people.

To the east of Almeria we find the rugged and desolate coast of the Cabo de Gata - Nijar natural park. This is an arid desert landscape and the annual rainfall here is less than 200mm. It is sparsely populated, few villages and a very low population density. Visitors feel a sense of exploration here as many of the coves can only be reached on foot. This area is particularly popular with nature lovers and back-packers. The most popular coastal village is San José.

Almeria city is worth a visit with the Alcazaba castle overlooking the metropolis.

Vera Playa


The fishing port of Garrucha still holds its Spanish charm and there are lots of restaurants and bars serving locally caught fresh fish and seafood. These blue flag beaches are cleaned daily and never crowded and the blue Mediterranean sea is clean, warm and ideal for swimming. There are lifeguards on duty in peak season. The local fishing boats leave the harbour in the morning and return that evening between 17:00 and 17:30, unload their catch and auction it off in the fish market to the local fish restaurants. It is fantastic to watch and you are welcome to wander around the auction as it happens and buy if you wish, the perfect supper!

The town itself has a large supermarket and an assortment of shops selling everything from sandals to souvenirs. Don´t miss the local market on Fridays where there are fresh fruit and vegetables and lots of clothes and shoes at very good prices. The marina is only a 20 minute stroll along the promenade. Garrucha also has a wide selection of shops, banks, dental and medical facilities.

A little further down the coast is the town of Mojacar Playa which has a shopping centre and the coastal strip is full of shops, restaurants and bars to suit every taste and pocket. Mojacar Pueblo is a 'must see'!!

"Fab family holiday"

We had a great time at Cassa Elka, the owner has put a lot of thought into what facilities are needed in the house. We didn't need it but there are stair gates and other child friendly items. The pool is very nearby and there is a child pool on site too. The beach is a 10 minute tops gentle walk and there are some great snack bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The bus runs both ways along the coast frequently and goes to the aqua park. Loved our stay and would recommend highly.

Thank you Helen. Thats three holidays you have spent at Casa Ella now and its always nice to welcome returning guests. See you again soon
