“Superb value for money and spacious villa”

Casa Alba is located down a quiet lane just outside the town of Albox. The villa was spacious with three good-sized double bedrooms (two ensuite) a large dining kitchen and separate living room, plenty of space for my family and me. The property also had a well-tended front garden with lovely shrubs and plants and a good-sized swimming pool and jacuzzi to the rear. We ate in a few times; the kitchen was well-equipped and there was also a BBQ outside.
Being in the south of Spain it was still nice and warm in September and we spent a fair amount of time in the pool and jacuzzi. We also played tennis at the nearby club and visited the monastery at Saliente, which is perched on the top of a hillside with great views down the valley towards Albox.
Albox itself offered some nice places to eat and we would recommend Toni's in the town centre for authentic and reasonably priced tapas. We also found a great fruit & veg shop near the supermarket which also had a fantastic range of steak and sausages for the BBQ.
A great family holiday and we will be booking again for next year!

“Rest and relaxation at Casa Alba”
Reviewed 18 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed at Casa Alba end August/September 2012 with our family. The villa is in a pleasant and peaceful rural location just five minutes drive from the nearest town of Albox. We were impressed with how comfortable and well equipped the house was, particularly in the kitchen area (including even having an "ice crusher" to make perfect Mojitos) and a large well built BBQ on the pool patio that was very much appreciated. There's plenty of room poolside to relax and spread out with all the terraces around the house during the day and the Jacuzzi/Hot Tub an evening favourite.

Internet access at the house also proved welcome and was very useful to check out attractions in the local area - we visited Lorca castle, Baza and the lake Negratin, Mojacar and Garrucha with very good restaurants there. Also a nice drive up to Saliente monastery and Velez Rubio/Velez Blanco to see the castle. Albox itself had plenty of bars and restaurants - we particularly liked "La Parrilla" hotel in the town square Plaza del Pueblo; with very friendly staff and a varied menu, tapas very good also and cheap!"

We would be very happy to recommend the house to others looking to stay in the area.

“Casa Alba is a first class holiday destination for couples and young families”

Casa Alba provides homely, high class accommodation with all the facilities and requirements for a very comfortable stay. The property also provides 3 external terrace areas with different aspects over the surrounding countryside which we found most attractive.
The large swimming pool and jacuzzi were well used by us and were most welcome holiday additions at this comfortable property.
The coastal resorts of Mojacar and Garrucha were a half hour drive away and provide an alternative to the peaceful and rural nature of the property with excellant seafood restaurants, while Albox is a 10 minute drive away for all provisions.
Altogether a very well appointed property which we would be happy to revisit.
