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.
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!
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.
