About Peter Hilll

I live in a glorious part of England in Herefordshire on the River Wye near the Welsh Borders. I am a retired Chartered Surveyor, now a widower, with a large family who very much enjoy the villa. I wanted somewhere to express myself and my slightly eccentric ideas! I found the villa way back in 1987 which was unloved and then, together with my late wife, started creating what it is today. It is a spacious detached property in the Hacienda style. There are many unusual features and plenty of space and shade, with areas to get away from everyone; perhaps to read and sleep whilst others are in the large secluded pool area. It is set back from the main Playa under the mountains, yet within 15 minutes walk from the Playa restaurants, bars and beaches.

Peter Hilll purchased this villa in 1980

Why Peter Hilll chose Mojacar area

I wanted a place away from the masses to taste the real Spain and not the typical concrete jungles of the high rise Costas.

Mojacar Playa was being developed and the planning laws restricted buildings rising above three storeys; so the Playa became a 4 mile front with minimal development behind. It still possesses the original beach bars opening right onto the seafront.

There is also the original Pueblo (village) of Mojacar, dating back to the Moors & Christians, set on a hillside behind the Playa. Its labyrinth of alleyways and lanes contain a number of shops, bars and restaurants to explore and enjoy, with views of the spectacular mountains and sea.

Set below the mountains, the rugged coastline and small villages to explore, Mojacar presented us with everything we were seeking.

What makes this villa unique

It has 3 airports within access:

Almeria is less than 1 hour away, whilst Murcia (St Javier) with the new motorway is approx 1 hour 15 mins away and then there is Alicante which is

2 hours away.

It is not on any development or complex and has many private and secluded areas

fantastic family villa

  • 5 of 5

this is a perfect villa for a family holiday, as soon as you walk through the door you feel at home it is not modern but this is what makes you feel instantly at ease with it all.

There were 7 adults 1 teenager 1 child and 1 baby in our party and everyone was catered for. A lot of villas I looked at said they slept this many but did not look like they catered for that many i.e. sunbeds tables chairs there is more than enough for everybody at this villa, and plenty of room for people to sit in there own space or all together kitchen is fully equiped for cooking we ate out and cooked indoors every thing was so easy.

We know the area very well and I would recomend to anybody to stay here.

The Wifi signal is excellent very important for teenagers !

The local supermarket is easy to get to and stocks everything you need.

The owner was very helpfull as was the agent that meet us on arrival.

Casa Colina

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing villa. We had lots of help from the owner to ensure that we had all information prior to going. Met by a pleasant agent who took time explaining all the nuances of the villa and places to go.

The villa was clean and tidy with a lot of interesting furnishings and loads of character. The sleeping accommodation was perfect for us. The double bedroom with en suite overlooking the pool was modern and spacious. My daughter and family used the double bedroom with bunk for their children with the terrace going out to the pool.

The villa had lovely nooks and crannies and there were places for all to go as the mood took us, so many places to sit and explore for the children.

The pool was perfect with lots of shade should it be needed - loved the covered area at the end with kitchen and dining table + BBQ. We ate out by the pool at night and it was end of October / November

Pool was clean and well maintained whilst we were there by regular visits from the pool man. We swam every day.

The garden was packed with plants and looked quaint.

Children loved the pool but also enjoyed the boules court.

We loved the area - wonderful old village of Mojocar, fishing port of Garruchia, inland castle at Verez Blanca and National Park with small bays such as San Juan to the south west. We were not so keen on the area along the front which for us was a little too commercialized, but we do enjoy a quiet holiday away from the madding crowd, for others i am sure that they would love it.

We did eat on the Playa (beach) near the Villa - some lovely eating establishments, and visited the mini golf and the ice cream parlour to the Western end. We tended to go with the traditional rather then 'British' owned restaurants. Plenty of supermarkets for food shopping.

At the time of year we were there the weather was great (26'C) beautiful blue skies. It was quiet and easy to get around and park etc. I can imagine that in the summer it is very busy but then so are all Spanish resorts.

The villa is not ultra modern but is all the things said above and I could thoroughly recommend a visit by anyone.

Map

Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

Set back about ½ mile (15 mins walking) to the sea and Playa

with its numerous bars, restaurants, shops and Seafront Walks. There is a wide selection of restaurants of all nationalities, long sandy beaches and some of the last original beach bars in Spain which are situated right on the beach.

Travel:

Airports:

Almeria (approximately 50 minutes away).

Murcia (1hr 30 mins via new motorway).

Alicante (2hrs away).

There are also bus services and taxis available but hiring a car would be recommended.

Distances:

Approximately two and a half hours away is the beautiful mountainous area of Las Alpujarras below the Sierra Nevada and the historic city of Granada and the fabulous Alhambra Palace.

Further Details:

Mojacar is a gem of the Almerian coast and on the eastern tip of Andalucia in Southern Spain. Due to its southerly location and proximity to the Sahara Desert, there are similar climatic conditions, even in winter, to those in North Africa. The Pueblo (village) of Mojacar dates back to the 11th century with a rich and colourful history of the Moors and Christians. Its white cottages and houses spiral up the hillside on which it was built in a labyrinth of small streets and passages with its shops, restaurants and bars. There are spectacular views from the top of the village and the wonderful sunsets can be enjoyed during an evening drink at one of the bars!

There is a Water Park in Vera Playa which is about 30 minutes away.The National Park of Cabo de Gata is along the coast with fabulous beaches. The Mini-Hollywood Film Studios (where “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” was filmed) is about an hour and a half away and worth a visit.
