About the property

Villa in Mojacar, Costa Almeria, Andalucia, Spain - Easy Access To Turre And Mojacar

Large detached villa with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 2 acres and only 7 minutes to Mojacar Beach. Private walled garden with 10mx6m pool and games room with pool table, pergola seating 10, table tennis. Travel Cot, 2 x Highchairs and range of baby equipment. The house was completely renovated in 2012 in a Moorish style with beautiful Spanish tiles and old looking (but new) wooden rustic furniture. Downstairs there are 3 double bedrooms in total. There are 2 double bedrooms on the left wing (The kids room has doors to garden) which share a bathroom with toilet, sink and large power shower. On the right wing is large double room with private bathroom. In the middle of the house is a large (30 foot x 15 foot) open plan lounge with two sofa areas, a wooden dining table, TV and bookcase. There is a cast iron log burner in the corner which keeps the house warm on winter evenings. The lounge has double doors opening onto the private walled garden and pool. At night, the view from the lounge is of Mojacar town on the top of the mountain. Off the lounge is a well equipped kitchen with oven, electric hob, microwave, dishwasher and breakfast room. There is a traditional tiled staircase leading up to the master bedroom suite. This is a very large double with a juliet balcony to the front of the house. It also has double doors leading to its own solarium with views of the nearby mountains. Leading off the master bedroom as a large walk in dressing room and from this another doorway leads to the private bathroom. The house sits in the middle of 2 acres of land but we have created a private walled garden directly behind the house. No expense was spared as this was professionally built and landscaped. The garden can be thought of as in 3 parts. From the kitchen door there is a large pea shingle area. This has a solitary olive tree in the corner and a set of wooden benches. We use this to play boules / petanc. Directly behind the house is the large pergola and rockery. The pergola has a huge cast iron table and 10 chairs underneath. This is where we eat 90% of the time. It provides lovely shade and you can see the kids in the pool. There are a range of shrubs and trees planted around it and over the rockery. To the left of the pergola garden is the pool and games room. It is a large pool with tiled steps leading down to the shallow end which is about 3 foot 6 inches deep. The deep end is about 7 foot deep. At the back of the pool is the games room (cassita). It is a tradition Spanish building with an open front. Inside is a dart board, a pool table and a table tennis table. There is also a large box full of toys (these change as the season goes on depending on who leaves what!).

About Sarah Gallucci

Jason and Sarah bought the property in 2011 to enjoy with their 3 children. Jason is the CEO of a London PR agency and Sarah is a housewife.

Sarah Gallucci purchased this villa in 2011

Why Sarah Gallucci chose Mojacar area

We bought in Mojacar because we wanted to be part of real Spain and it has a lovely feeling of not being too touristy yet having all of the things you need. Its also has hot weather almost all year round (we have even been in the pool on xmas day!) We chose the villa because of its size and scope to create our dream getaway. Its location was also key for us as it is easy to find (not halfway up mountain with dark and dangerous roads as many are) and an easy drive to all of the main towns and beach. With the garden space you dont need to go anywhere else as it is a fantastic retreat.

We week away I want to repeat!!

  • 5 of 5

I had a fabulous stay at the villa last Summer. It is spacious, immaculate and the perfect getaway when you need to "get away from it all". We're already planning on returning later this year - if only for the boules and pool rematch.

Have recommended it to a number of friends who all have had a similar, 5-star experiences.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous, spacious and well equipped villa in perfect location to explore the coast and the mountains. Maintained to a very high standard, inside and out with quality furnishings and fittings throughout. Everything had been thought about (and more) making this the perfect home from home. An oasis of calm - perfect environment to relax and recharge. When can we stay again please?

We had a wonderful time at the villa. It was beautifully presented and maintained. The pool and garden was gorgeous with glorious mountain views.

We would stay there again in a heartbeat and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the villa to friends and family.

Terrific Turre

  • 5 of 5

Sorry this Review is so late only just got the hang of doing such things!

Well what can i say, but what a fabulous surprise when we arrived at the Villa this place certainly had the Wow factor for us Every thing looked so lovely and welcoming and we found it to be extremely well equipped once we had got ourselves unpacked and settled.The swimming pool was an absolute Joy to be in and the Games Room also was a great asset and again very well equipped (lots of floats etc for the pool also).

The Villa stands in very spacious grounds with great Views of the surrounding Mountains and the little Town of Turre neaby, which by the way is a very easy walk along a farm track.Majaca is not that far away about 10.mins drive and there a many sights to see if you have the time to get away from the Pool.

We found plenty of information to hand and contact numbers of people local if we had a problem in any way.

I certainly recommend this Villa for Family or just Friends to Chill out and i am hoping i shall be Lucky enough in life to visit again.

Kind Regards

Sue Clark

beautiful but tired

  • 2 of 5

we were so very disappointed as we arrived and although the cleaners were there and left quite quickly the villa was filthy. I did email the owner who reply was we have never had a complaint before, not helpful. I would have put a review sooner but this villa wasnot on owners direct at the time. A beautiful villa that is getting tired and needs money spent on it to give it a face lift. My husband and I had to clean for a whole day and purchase cleaning products to do so as there was nothing there at all to use not even a cloth. We could not use the dish washer as it didn't work we tried buying salt and rinse aid but no use at all. We had to wash dishes in the cupboards that were filthy and covered in food, you could write your name in the dust. I was in tears the day we arrived I couldn't believe how bad it was. Sorry because if it was clean it would have been lovely. Also a lot of us staying and we had to wash up by hand every day which is not what you want to have to do, the BBQ didn't work either. They need to spend some money on this villa

Owner's Response: There is always one and this person is it. At the time, we assumed she was a discount hunter but realised she was just unreasonable. The Villa had been cleaned from top to bottom for 5 hours the day they arrived. They called and complained. The first thing I did was check with out cleaners (my parents) that it had been cleaned. It had. My parents were so upset they immediately drove to the villa to try to understand the complaint. Ms Gay was pointing out things that did not exist (- eg a hair on one bed sheet that was freshly washed and made that day) and a mark on a toilet that was totally clean. I respectfully said that if she wanted to leave, we would refund her money. She stayed and even sent a thank you note at the end of her stay. The villa is not tired. The dishwasher works perfectly as does the bbq. Beware this guest! Please see our other reviews as they are consistent.
