This charming village house sits on the side of a mountain with fabulous views of the sea one way and mountains all around the rest!
The Cabo de Gata National Park is truly beautiful, especially in the Spring when all the flowers are out. If you are looking for lush greenery then look elsewhere because this is a very dry area. Which is why the weather is so reliable.
Flocks of sheep wander around accompanied by the shepherd and his dog.
The sea is within walking distance but the climb back up might challenge the less mobile.
We went on several walks through the hills and valleys. A little challenging but well worth it.
The accommodation is looking a little tired but all that is forgotten when you step on to the terrace, from your bedroom, each morning to take in that view of the sea.
Tried a couple of times to upload a review (& failed for some reason!), so I was surprised no one had beat me to it. We stayed here in Aug 2014, with our 6 year old. Initially I was concerned about the combination of small child & 'floating stairs', but he managed them with ease (would suggest keeping an eye on smaller children though). Nestled at the foot of a mountain amidst a sea of prickly pears, we always loved returning after a day out exploring. A great location, gorgeous contemporary interior, well placed for exploring the many excellent beaches (monsil, agua amarga), or travel further afield to mini hollywood or fort bravo if the little ones (or big ones!) like a day out with a cowboy or two thrown in. Car essential. Not as remote as it appears in the pictures (in a small spanish hamlet with an adjoining property and others dotted around), but that didnt matter as it was quite peaceful with a pleasant community feel. Loved our stay, our little one even cried when we had to return home (he'd gotten rather attached to Lucky, the gorgeous Siamese 'house' cat). Only thing missing would be a pool to relaxe by, but if there were one, thus little gem wouldve probably been out of our price range.
