Welcome to our quiet Spanish hideaway on the southern slopes of the Sierra de Las Estancias in the Almeria province of beautiful Andalucia. Just 10 minutes away from the lovely mountainside village of Oria with its basilica and quiet winding streets yet only 50 minutes away from bustling Garrucha and Mojacar on the coast, you can have the best of both quaint inland and coastal Spain from one location.
The various terraces afford you 360 degree views towards Albox in the south and to the mountains in the north. Surrounded by almond and olive groves, Villa Marco Carlos offers a holiday home from home that can be both quiet and relaxing for couples or full of fun and laughter for families. The villa is very private and well appointed, it is perfect for hosting just the two of you or larger families and groups of friends. Outdoor living and entertaining is well catered for with a number of covered dining areas and the built in barbeque. The private 10m swimming pool is equipped with sun loungers and a parasol as well as pool toys and other garden furniture. Situated to the west of the property the pool terrace benefits from many hours of sunshine each day. There is the added facility of a permanent gazebo that is used during the day for shade and, as evening comes, to watch the stunning sunsets that are a feature of the area.
The area around Oria and the mountains provide some great days out, visiting The National Park and the lovely towns of Velez Rubio and Velez Blanco will take you into the high pine forests with uncrowded hiking trails and picnic areas - take your own barbeque to La Piza and stop to see the prehistoric cave paintings at Los Letreros (maps and directions can be found in the Villa)
