We stayed for 2 weeks at Easter and were lucky enough to have beautiful weather. We loved the cortijo at first sight, the views are amazing. You have the sierra Cabrera mountains right in front which look beautiful all day. To the right you have the distant views of mojacar and the sea and to the right you can see parts of Bedar, the local village.
The plunge pool is a great size, a little cold in the first week but warmed up and was lovely during the second week. A great size for upto a family of 4 to cool off. The drive is a little narrow but all in all the facilities outside are excellent with plenty of space to sunbathe during the night and enjoy eating/drinking in the evening too.
Inside the villa is lovely, small lounge with smart tv/wifi and a great kitchen with all the mod cons inc fab oven/American fridge. Beds were comfy and air con/heaters were great. Log burner fire was nice for first couple of evenings when it was cool in the late evening.
The drive to the villa is a little windy and disconcerting if youre not used to this regions roads but they are tarmacked and have passing places. Weve drove all over the area and the roads are much better than ours in the UK. You do need a car for this villa for shopping/beach etc but the village of Bedar is only a 1.5 hilly walk so you can walk if you wish for an evening meal. (El Paso is our fave in Bedar) There are some stunning walks in the area and the beach at Mojacar is only 25 mins away. Plus Albertos ice cream parlour is there too ... :)
A fab holiday, a beautiful place, cant wait to return to Bedar again as its our home away from home.
Thanks to Peter and David for a lovely stay.
This cortijo is an absolute joy. Simple, comfortable, spacious, it is extremely well-equipped and has a fantastic position with views to the Med and across to the lovely Sierra de Carbrera. Peaceful, charming and exactly what we were looking for. We were delighted with our stay.

Super cottage, very well equipped, stunning views,private and very quiet. Two nice bedrooms (ensuite), an excellent kitchen and a comfy sitting room. Very well laid out...just perfect.
You definitely need a car and it's a good couple of km from the town but that was perfect for me.
If you are a walker or cyclist this is perfect for you, and if you like to explore there is plenty to occupy. January here was like early summer in the UK!
A place I think for independent minded adventurous people who like good home comforts!
