This traditional rural Spanish casita is situated on the edge of a small village. This spacious property has 3 double bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, utility room, bathroom and private pool with BBQ area.
The village of El Canton is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of life on the Costas and offers an insight into the real Spain. It has a small church off the village square and 2 bars which provide traditional Spanish fare all day. The area is full of olive and almond groves and produces some great quality wines from it’s vineyards which can be purchased at the local bodegas for less than 1€/litre. The area has become prosperous over the years due to some of the world’s largest marble quarries. Just a 5 minute drive takes you into the small market town of Alguena where there are more restaurants, banks, shops and a traditional Sunday market is held every week where you can purchase all the local produce and much, much more. 5 minutes in the other direction takes you to the towns of Hondon de los Frailes and 5 minutes further to Hondon de las Nieves where there are more shops, bars and restaurants available. This beautiful Spanish haven is ideal for cycling, walking, horse riding and provides the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday yet is only 40 minutes from the beautiful sandy beaches and 40 minutes from the great shopping malls and tourist attractions of either Murcia or Alicante cities.
Just spent two weeks in Casa Canton and we had a great time, weather amazing and the location was lovely and quiet.
The villa itself was well equipped with everything you would need, the only thing we missed was the dishwasher (you are on holiday after all).
Holiday overall was perfect and highly reccomend this villa. Karen was extremely helpful and on hand if needed.

Have just returned from a two week holiday here with my husband and 3 young children. Have to say the property is exactly as described, clean and comfortable with an excellent bbq area. The gate locked between the bbq area and pool so no risk of children getting near to pool. The pool was lovely and children loved it. Had no complaints with chairs or parasol all in great condition. Could not fault the owners at all, especially when my daughter took unwell and we needed a doctor, not only did Karen meet us to take us to the doctor but she also stayed with us to do translator and ensure everything was ok, for this I am very thankful. The villa itself is very private and I can assure you that no one would be able to see into property not even from the bar across the road. Parking facilities are available with a gate that is able to be locked into the property. The building beside the property is not being worked on so no noise from there. Had no complaints with noise from neighbours, or from bar across the road. The owners of the bar across the road are very friendly and welcoming and do provide lovely food and drink daily. Overall a very relaxing, peaceful holiday and would recommend. Thankyou Karen and Robbie.

Ticked all the boxes for us. The location is good (2 bars in the village) close to the local shops, supermarkets & bodegas where you can buy extremely cheap & excellent local wine. The journey from the airport is pretty straightforward & once you arrive the property is very comfortable, clean & relaxing with the extra benefit of a great pool. The people looking after the house are really friendly & helpful & although, thankfully, we didnt have any problems I have no doubts they would have been around to help. All in all a great holiday & would have no worries about returning.

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful 2 wks at Casa Canton, it definitely exceeded our expectations, and when we had a couple of problems, they were dealt with straightaway and in a very friendly manner. The villa was very well equipped, and the pool was kept clean and well looked after. We have already recommended it to our family and friends, and are thinking about booking the same place next year!
The property was lovely and clean we met the owners who could not be more helpful.
They were at the end of a phone if we needed them.
Just spent a week at this gorgeous house and all i can say is WOW. We loved every minute of it. There is everything you would need there at the house, a real home from home. The peace and quiet you will get here is unbelievable. The bar across the road is lovely and the owners are just the same and say hello to you every time they see you. Karen and Rob cant do enough for you while you are there, they are great. If your thinking of booking this villa then do so right now, you wont be disappointed.
