“A wonderful oasis in Almeria”
Reviewed October 15, 2018 for a stay in October 2018

The photographs do not do this place justice! It is a beautiful, peaceful oasis. The grounds and garden are well looked after and the jasmine smells divine. The pool was amazing and fountains were relaxing to watch, and listen to. The artefacts in the house felt authentic and it was the careful thought put into every detail in the house, that made it feel like a very special treat to stay somewhere so perfect. We felt at home as soon as we arrived, which was down to being welcomed so kindly by Fernando upon our arrival. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a trip to Albanta. Many thanks to Fernando and his family x

“A lovely villa”
Reviewed August 27, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

The villa was a great base to explore the local area and trips to the many beaches. Fernando, wife and friend met us on our arrival and were very warm and welcoming.
We visited Majorca, Garrucca and Carbonares, all lovely beaches. Fort Bravo (mini Hollywood) is not far away and a must visit as well as the castle in Almeria.
Our girls loved playing in the pool and we enjoyed the figs from the many trees in the garden. A lovely place to relax and explore. Many thanks

“Fantastic house, pool and garden”
Reviewed February 7, 2017 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful couple of weeks in this fantastic house. Secluded and with all you need, our kids, us and grandma and grandpa had a great experience. While we did not enjoy the Vera Beach that much, we just went down to Mojacar beach, where the atmosphere was more relaxed. The beaches there were also very child friendly, with play grounds every 300 metres or so.

“Wow!”
Reviewed January 4, 2017 for a stay in December 2016
1
person found this review helpful

A wonderful experience in this most amazing, unique, beautifully designed Arab Palace. The attention to architectural detail, quality of furnishings, artefacts and artwork is excellent. The very private, moorish styled garden were exquisite. We stayed here for five weeks and were welcomed by Fernando, Pilar and Mike with tasteful Christmas decorations, pots of poinsettias everywhere, wine, fruit basket and biscuits. Although we had immediate email and telephone communication with Fernando, we were left in total privacy for our stay. Everything was provided to cater for all our needs including a very good wood store to take the chill off the evenings.
Thank you, hope to see you again next year! HUGS!

“Wow, what a beautiful villa, a visual treat!”
Reviewed September 27, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Tony and I stayed here for two weeks, and as we had two bedrooms we had our daughter come and stay for the weekend and also we entertained some friends who were over in the area for one night. Everyone who came were blown away by the beauty of the the place and the attention to detail.

Fernando and Pilar have created an oasis of loveliness here. The tiles, the light fittings, the cushions on the flat deck upstairs and the plants and ornaments. This is not a utilitarian type rental at all.

Although we had rain for the first few days and some problems (due to the huge amounts of water that fell in a short time) with the electric gates all was resolved quickly and well by Fernando and our lovely interpreter Adela who was available via phone/text.

We used the outside kitchen one evening to cook a huge chicken and chorizo paella and every day we enjoyed good local food and wine. The Saturday morning market in Vera was very good, and there is also a Lidl and various other supermarkets in the vicinity.

The area is goof for the beach and also drives inland to places like Mojacar and Bedar. Murcia airport is about 1;30 hrs drive, we used the cars sat nav set to avoid toll and paid for roads and the drive was extremely good. The roads are so much nicer in Spain the UK!

Because there is a downstairs bedroom it would be suitable for people who had someone with them who was unable to manage stairs.

We would definitely return here and would recommend this villa to anyone.
