Mike Palmer purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Mike Palmer chose Bédar
We bought Casa El Amanecer after 12 months of searching. This run down villa had one amazing feature ...360 degree view of the mountans and the sea. 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

Perfect Place and Location for a superb holiday
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

A hidden gem in an authentic Spanish setting!
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!
Thank you for your review.
We are very pleased you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to seeing back at the villa soon.

lovely villa, beautiful surroundings
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.
Thank you for your comments and so pleased you all had such a good holiday

Home from home
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
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.
Thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your 10 week stay and found the villa so comfortable.
Stuart and Natasha are the very best. Our top priority is always to ensure our guests have a trouble free and enjoyable holiday. If things go wrong Stuart deals with them and resolves the issues promptly.
We will be happy to welcome you back at any time in the future.
Mike's Marvellous Villa near Beautiful Bedar
We've visited a number of times now - definitely can't get enough of it! We're quite a large 3-generation family group - four oldies (including me), three in their thirties, and a couple of little 'uns - so it's important there's plenty of space, and very good facilities. Mike's Villa has them all in abundance. It very much has the feeling of a family home (albeit a large one).
The rooms are furnished to a very high standard, beds are large and comfortable, the kitchen is well-equipped and there's plenty of room inside and out for us all (including space to get away from each other, if we need to!).
The gardens, orchard and pool are brilliant, of course - I don't think the photographs quite do them justice. Unsurprisingly, we spent a large part of every day in and around the pool.
And then there are the fabulous views to the mountains and the Mediterranean a few miles away, and varied local walks (easy or hard, as you wish). I could go on and on...
It's also very important to us to have a range of really good bars and restaurants in easy walking distance. (And there are numerous others just a short drive away.) There are also small shops and a bakery nearby. (It usually fell to me to get fresh bread, croissants and other delicious pastries every morning, which I never minded because the stroll into town is so pleasant.)
That said, Mike's Villa is sufficiently out of the town for there to be complete peace and quiet, which is also important to us.
We can't wait to come back!
Hi Maggie and Philip
It is always a pleasure to welcome you with your family to our "piece of paradise" in the lovely Spanish village of Bedar. Year after year we upgrade the villa and we now have an electric canopy on the top terrace and one down by the pool . The extra lighting where the canopies are fitted give more time to enjoy the outside lifestyle and a fridge in the pool house for that bottle of wine, water, soft drinks and ice.
Look forward to welcoming you back soon
Frances and Mike
Bedar is 15 minutes away from the coast with its many beaches from popular, secluded and nudist.
The walkers is spoilt for choice with the Ruta Minerale starting a 100 yards from the villa (10 kilometers) throught the beautiful mount scenery. Very popular
