We are a English married couple and have lived in Spain for many years and bought our villa in 2003 from new, We fell in love with the area and just love the whole area surrounding Albox.

ANGELA purchased this villa in 2003

Why ANGELA chose Albox

We were looking for a home that was in real Spain and came across this area stayed a while and simply fell in love with it

The villa is just how we wanted it to be Modern, spacious and over 240 m2 of build and very private, rural yet 2 minutes drive away from Albox Town centre giving you our guests the very finest holiday that a home can offer you.

Whether you are a couple, Family, or a large party you will be well catered for when choosing this upmarket spacious villa. it offers all mod cons, you can sing and dance the night away no neighbours to concern yourself with here the ultimate in private villa holidays

What makes this villa unique

This villa is within walking distance from the main market town of Albox and yet it is set in some of the most glorious countryside you could imagine and the villa is probably unique in the fact that it has its own private walks set in some 3.5 acres of private land . and is ideal for bird watching and night star gazing no street lights here

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Villa exceeded our expectations with its spacious layout, wonderful pool and courtyard area, its privacy and the surrounding countryside. There are excellent un/commercialised beaches, hilltop villages and mountains all within easy reach. James & Family (June 2013)

We absolutely loved your villa and we were very sad to leave.

We did a few trips around the area but most of the time enjoyed the garden and pool. The kids, when not in the pool were behind the bar making juice cocktails, or playing the games. It was also great to get the kids to wind down to allow them to shower and then watch a movie before bed.

Superb villa offering privacy and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday at this beautifully presented and maintained villa. From the first look at the inner courtyard and pool (kept sparklingly clean by Andy) to the comfortably furnished interior and the very comprehensive welcome pack, it was clear that this was going to be somewhere special. Both Andy and Sara gave us a warm welcome and a comprehensive tour of the villa and its facilities, and were available throughout our stay if we needed them for anything (we didn't).

We were fortunate to have fine weather throughout our fortnight's stay (we left on October 14th), and used the pool every day - we're really missing that already! Being totally enclosed, the pool area was also ideal for sunbathing and banishing the white bits ;-) The gardens around the villa are very nicely done, and we met and talked to David the gardener.

This was our first visit to the Almeria area, so we found plenty to do, but confess to finding Albox and its surroundings somewhat dreary. The landscape in many places looks like somebody has dug it up and re-distributed it, which gives it a strange quarry-like appearance, which is not very pretty.

Further afield, we visited Almeria (the moorish fortress is good, but the rest of the city is worth avoiding), Mojacar (the pueblo is lovely, but the coastal resort was also not our style at all) and Cartagena which was very well worth the drive to get there if you are in to historical sites. Do visit the roman remains and take a boat trip round the bay.

As birdwatchers we were somewhat disappointed by the lack of variety of birds around - plenty of Crested Larks, Sparrows and Black Wheatears, and occasional Sardinian Warblers and Kestrels, but our list for the fortnight was quite short.

We did not eat out at all, as we enjoy cooking with local produce. The markets around are good, and we made use of the barbeques in the pool area several times.

Thanks, Angela and Peter, for the use of your lovely house - the peace and comfort there was just what we needed after a somewhat mediocre summer here in England!

Beautiful relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing holiday in this beautiful villa just a few minutes drive from Albox.

Prior to the holiday, Angela, the owner sent us detailed information about the area, local restaurants, supermarkets, markets etc which was really useful.

We were met in Albox by Andy and Sara, who look after the villa and we followed them to the villa where they were able to show us around. It was really useful to have them locally as contacts to help with any queries we had.

The villa has loads of outside space and a real homely feeling inside. By the pool there are two areas which have dappled shade which are ideal for sunbathing as well as a larger shaded area. This area has a table and chairs for alfresco dining, along with a sofa and two chairs which are ideal for relaxing in with a drink in the evenings. There is also both a gas and coal BBQ, a dart board and a bar area with an outside fridge which was really handy for keeping drinks in.

The front of the villa has a large terrace area which has another sofa and two chairs along with a second table and chairs and a table tennis table.

The inside of the villa is well equipped. The bedrooms all have plenty of storage space and the air conditioning is ideal.

The kitchen has all the usual appliances and there is also a large utility room with a washing machine, sink and plenty of cupboard space. The welcome pack was very substantial and useful to have.

We really enjoyed are holiday at this villa and would definitely re-book another year.

Lovely outside living areas

  • 5 of 5

We all had a wonderful time staying in this villa. Sara and Andy were very pleasant and helpful. We selected this villa for the outside seating and living area. It did not disappoint. It.was a fantastic space for the entire family to spend time together either playing darts, table tennis, cards or just eating and drinking or even watching the outside television. Although the pool area was beautiful we unfortunately couldn't make full use of it because of the hundreds (yes hundreds) of wasps that came to visit during the day. They were not aggressive but they wanted their drink from the pool. Inside and outside the entire villa was immaculate and everything worked correctly. Cooking was great on the both the BBQ and electric grill. The much needed air-con was good. A little disappointed with the bed in the master bedroom as it sloped very strongly to the centre.

Angela, the owner was excellent to deal with. The welcome pack on arrival was the best welcome pack we've had in any villa we've ever stayed in.

With only five dinner plates (that is all we found) it meant that the dishwasher went on half full on several occasions.

Summary, a lovely villa with fantastic outside space and facilities. Our very enjoyable experience a little tarnished by the many wasps at the time of our visit.

Owner's Response: Hello Paula Thank you for taking the time to send your review . With reference to the wasps a very difficult thing to control, as you may of saw we had professional wasp traps out around the pool area and also hung up was two professional waspinators designed to drive away any wasps in the area, this year there has been a very high amount of wasps in the area thankfully reports now say that this has now changed. I do not understand about the shortage of plates as we carry spares to cover all aspects of breakages in the linen cupboard all you had to do was inform our representatives Andy & Sara who would of supplied you with more plates etc. We have checked with them and no such request was made. However we are pleased that you enjoyed the outside space of the villa and your holiday. The FIVE star rating you gave us indicates this.

Fantastic Rural Retreat

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish everything about this Villa is 5 star, Angela (owner) makes regular contact prior to the trip with little things like directions from the airport, local amenities, shops and restaurants etc. The friendly Andy and Sara meet and greet you as you enter Albox and escort you to the Villa, they then show you everything you need to know about the Villa and answer any questions you may have about the villa and local area. The Villa itself is beautifully clean and very well appointed, the covered terrace next to the crystal clear pool just makes the villa special. There are chairs and table to dine and a comfortable suite to relax the day and evenings away in total privacy and tranquility. The outside bar with fridge, gas and charcoal BBQs provide all you need for a fantastic holiday. The best recommendation I can give is that we will definitely be back in 2017.

Great holiday in a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We went to the villa for the last 2 weeks in September and had a wonderful time. It is very well equipped and comfortable but the highlight is the pool area. It is a great mix of sun and shade with a variety of seating and the perfect place for an evening BBQ which we had on a number of occassions. The villa and pool are also largely on the flat so great for people with any mobility issues.

The villa is also well situated to go out and visit the highlights of the area and close to the coast if you fnacy a sea swim of a meal on the beach. Also only 2 hours to Granada which is well other the trip.

The gardens are also lovely and the sunsets from the top of the neighbouring hill is worth the short climb.

I have no hesitation in reccomeding anyone to book this villa.
