We have spent most of the time refurbishing it with new kitchen, air conditioning, wiring, central heating, new pool and it just goes on and on to make it a very comfortable home which we hope you will enjoy.

Renewed Gas Certificate in 2016. Current Electrical Supply and Installation Certificate

What makes this villa unique

Perfect Place and Location for a superb holiday

  • 5 of 5

If you are reading this it means you have found this special villa offering the most wonderful location - views to die for and within walking distance of the authentic Spanish village of Bedar offering two little shops, bakery, pharmacy, bank and very importantly three bar/restaurants with a fine dining restaurant just a few kilometres up the road called the Montana.

We had the most super two months and enjoyed the spectacular walks nearby, sitting on the terrace taking in the panoramic views and the very special views of Bedar village too. The villa is equipped with everything you need - in the kitchen - if you need something you will find it, comfortable beds, and the pool area is a delight - not that we used it as we were there in the winter months. Air conditioners will keep you cool in the summer months - Fresh fruit from the orchard garden too. For Sea lovers, there is the choice of Vera playa, Garrucha or Mojacar playa with many restaurants and bars on the beach. Stuart and Natasha will greet you and show you all you need to know - super couple. So what else can we say....if you want a special holiday then look no further and book quickly ...we have already booked for winter. Thank you Mike for letting us share your beautiful villa

Spanish living

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa, located on the outskirts of Bedar which is a lovely, traditional Spanish village. There are 4 restaurants in Bedar, including a very good Indian! There are also 2 shops and a cash point all within walking distance from the villa.

A car is must.

The local beaches in Mojácar are great and you can always find somewhere quiet away from the crowds. We had a boat trip from nearby Carbonarous down the coast of the National Park, can recommend it, great views, bird life and swimming from the boat.

The villa was in good condition. We are 2 families and had plenty of room.

We can highly recommend the villa, it had everything we needed, maybe take a kitchen veg knife though.

The pool and grounds are well laid out with lots of space and shade. The views over Bedar and down to Vera and Mojacar are delightful.

We will be back!

A hidden gem in an authentic Spanish setting!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Bedar with our two teenage children for a traditional family holiday. The villa is well laid out, very spacious, spotlessly clean and fully equipped with absolutely everything you need. Stunning views of the local area and within walking distance of the very quaint village. Bedar has three lovely restaurants serving excellent cuisine as well as a bank, supermarket, bakery and chemist. An excellent choice for a relaxing break but within a short drive to the lively coastline of Mojacar and surrounding area. The meet and greet service was well received and our hosts were on call for any questions we had plus a wealth of local information and advice. A peaceful and relaxing holiday with every requirement fulfilled!

lovely villa, beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent two glorious weeks in Mike's villa. Fantastic views overlooking Bedar and surrounding countryside. The village has restaurants, bars, pharmacy and bank and the people are very friendly and welcoming. The view from the villa balcony at night with the village lit up is just stunning. The villa is extremely well equipped, especially the kitchen, with top of the range appliances, better than at home! All the bedrooms are large with very comfortable beds most are en-suite. Lots of outside space, the pool was a very good size and a welcome relief on very hot days, with poolhouse, shower and w.c. There were eight adults in our party and we could still manage to find a quiet corner away from it all. Big thanks to Stuart and Natasha who were always on hand if there was a problem. We would not hesitate to come back it was truly a lovely two weeks.

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

We found the house very much ‘a home from home and more’. Unlike many ‘holiday villas’ your house offered all the comforts of a permanent family home. We particularly appreciated the exquisitely comfortable beds, air conditioning, high quality en-suite facilities in three of the four double bedrooms in addition to the large family bathroom. Our group consisting of two children aged almost two and four years, their mother, a couple in their mid- sixties and an eighty- year old, who found that the house provided something extra for everyone.

The pool area is safe and child friendly offering a range of blow up and other toys, shade for the sun avoiders and an orchard to explore. The sitting room and other areas offer a wide range of interesting book to brouse within a decor that is comfortable, personal, tasteful and reflecting the personality of the owners including interesting pictures and personal effects. Particularly appreciated was the range of British programmes available on the TV to the extent of a choice of local regional news programmes!

The kitchen is the best equipped that I have ever encountered in a holiday property including as wide a range of ingredients on a use and replace basis as one would have at home in addition to the ‘welcome pack’, so comprehensive we did not use everything provided.. There is a choice of three dining areas according to weather and ambiance in which to enjoy the fruits of fresh local produce prepared in a five- star kitchen. There is an enormous Lidl store with a much wider range than in the UK, a couple of miles towards the sea, which is a joy to shop in for those, who enjoy simple pleasures!

The local village of Bedar is in close walking distance for those, who do not mind a hill and contains amongst other things an enormous range of good, reasonably priced restaurants, run by friendly owners enthusiastic about their cuisine, an excellent small but well-stocked supermarket with very reasonable prices and a bread shop, very friendly people, who seem happy to embrace the expats, who have taken up residence in their midst, which includes Stuart, a retired police sergeant, who offers a full ‘meet and greet’ service, pool and other maintenance support and is on the end of the phone for advice and guidance. All in all the best villa experience we have ever had and look forward to our return in October

A lovely large house with stunning views

  • 4 of 5

We have just spent 10 weeks in Mike's lovely villa. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and the kitchen very well appointed. The wood burner in the lounge was extremely efficient which was great for us as we spent our holiday here during the coldest and wettest winter that this part of Spain has had for 90 years. Having said that we only had about 6/7 days/nights of rain but one of those was SNOW and we got 4" of the stuff during January.

Stuart and Natasha who look after the property for Mike are fantastic. We had a few problems with the heating and washing machine while we were at the villa and Stuart was there for us immediately, trying to sort things out as quickly as he could. Our only complaint about the villa was the radiator central heating, which did not have a remote controller and had to be manually turned off and on (and also broke down 3 times) and let me tell you when it is -2 and snowing that is no fun. Mike says he will be installing a new controller this year so hopefully whoever stays in the villa next winter will be warm and cosy.

The views from the house over the mountains and down to the coast at Mojacar are truly stunning and the sunrise is absolutely amazing. I won't forget that sunrise in a long time.

We founds some wonderful walks all around the area and we all had a great stay. Hopefully, if we come back to this area in a few years we can stay here again.

All in all, we would thoroughly recommend this house for a lovely relaxing holiday.
