Unique & massive air-conditioned 289 sq.m. 4-bedroom villa, sleeps up to 8
This unique 4-bedroom villa is NOT a rural property requiring a drive to village facilities. Although on a secluded & private cul-de-sac road, the villa is just 100 yards downhill from the main village, with easy access but away from noise during fiestas. The walk back from any of the five bar/restaurants in the village (maybe after a meal and several drinks...) is downhill. Bedar village was recently listed as one of the top 20 places to live in Spain, and will appeal to those who want a taste of real Spanish life. The accommodation features a shaded porch, huge lounge/dining room room, large kitchen, 30 sq.m. master bedroom, Moorish-style second double bedroom, open-plan study, plus 2 further double bedrooms. All rooms have en-suite facilities. This is a 289 sq.m villa with 3 private terraces plus a vast 750sq.m of landscaped shared terracing and pool (shared with only 2 holiday homes), perfect for weddings or large parties. For comfort, there is air-conditioning in all rooms.
We'll help you get here and then some..: There are excellent transport and motorway links. Bedar is about 45 minutes from Almeria Airport, and only 6 minutes' drive from Junction 520 of the major A-7 Autovia del Mediterraneo. You may find flights to Almeria airport expensive, as the charges have been recently increased. Don't worry - we always use Murcia San Javier airport, a glorious drive of an hour and a quarter via the stunning and quiet AP-7 toll motorway. There are plenty of cheap flights as it's subsidised - it's an easy airport to get around, and we've never had problems or long delays. Alicante airport is just over 2 hours away via the same motorway, but has a wide range of flights.
We have good contacts for car hire and always advise our guests to buy Excess Insurance from an online provider, to avoid paying massive charges by the car rental companies. When you do get here, you will get a warm welcome and a welcome pack with our compliments, with coffee, tea, bread, plus local cheese, chorizo, preserves, chutney etc and beer & cava to get your holiday started !!
Golf and other nearby attractions: The Levante area of Almeria is different from the veg growing area in the south near Roquetas. This unspoilt area has 4 golf courses within 20 minutes' drive, and the international Desert Springs course (where Sir Ian Botham and Daley Thompson have villas) is 25 minutes away. We can arrange discount golf club hire.There is horse-riding at Mojacar & Cabrera, tennis at Puerto Rey and Vera. Water park at Vera, karting at Garrucha.
Visit the magical hilltop village of Mojacar Pueblo for its Moorish alleyways and great shops. There are markets every day of the week in this area, and fiestas every weekend in summer.
Almeria city is less than an hour away, with its designer shops, tapas bars and the massive Alcabaza castle overlooking the city. It's a ferry port. Aguilas is 40 minutes away, with its marina, railway museum and shopping. The ancient city of Cartagena is about an hour to the north. Granada and the Alhambra palaces are 2 hours away, and can be easily visited in a day.
The Bedar area: Bedar is a white hillside village in the unspoilt Levante area, and one of the top 20 places to live in Spain. It's on the lower slopes of the Filabres mountains but only 15 minutes drive to major coastal resorts and the magical hilltop village of Mojacar Pueblo. Bedar is host to painters & musicians of all nationalities, from famous artists to blues & flamenco guitarists. The village has a vibrant cultural & social life. This area is renowned for its walks - among the hills are olive, orange and lemon groves. As for shops, the village has a small supermarket, a bakery, a bank, a chemist, a hairdresser, a tobacconist and a gift shop. There is a market on Wednesdays, and a village band! There are 5 bar/restaurants (4 of them Spanish-run) within 500 metres of the villa. We provide a list of recommended restaurants. In Bedar's Miramar restaurant, a huge home-made 3-course meal with bread, alioli and half a bottle of wine costs 10 Euros, and many bars do 'beer and a tapa' for 1.50 Euros.TripAdvisor property ID 4517358...Read more
