Finca overview - owner's description

We're pleased to offer our refurbished Finca for your holiday experience, confident you will find all the facilities and comforts you're accustomed to at home whilst enjoying your Spanish adventure. Double glazed throughout, the En-suite Bedrooms are pleasingly spacious with comfortable beds (The twin/
family room can accommodate various bed combinations as required). The dining and sitting rooms are equally substantial in size. The sitting room provides a relaxing oasis to escape the rigors of basking in the hot sun. Your accommodation is on one level except for the twin/family bedroom which has a number of steps 3 max which may not be suitable for people with severe walking difficulties.

The summer kitchen-diner is fully equipped: Electric (fan) Oven, 5 burner Gas Hob, American style fridge-freezer, Kettle, 4 slot Electric Toaster, Microwave Oven, plus ancillary equipment and utensils.

Outside an enclosed 90m2 courtyard has ample seating options, parasols and a comfortable 3 seat covered garden swing. It is complimented by a 24m2 Naya covered dining area containing a large rustic dining suite and an outdoor cook station (make you own paella or griddle a few steaks). Chances are you'll eat al-fresco throughout your stay. The adjacent 140m2 pool area is accessed directly by 3 steps. It Boasts an inset 10x4 Greco pool, poolside gazebo, sun loungers, parasols, cd player, plus a poolside dining table and chairs should you want to max on your tan!.

South facing, both areas are completely private and have substantial sunbathing space. The pool area is perfect for "total" tanning. The ambient lighting enables you to extend your outdoor experience until your bed calls you. what a nice way to close your day. As a bonus we also provide beach towels, so you can fill your suitcases with even more clothes options!.

With pseudo Grass being linked to health risks and tiles being dangerously slippy, we've chosen to coat the pool surround with a non-slip yet smooth material, (actually it's special pool cement) which, we're pleased to say does the job and doesn't burn or hurt your feet.

ENTERTAINMENT: We like music, evidenced by CD units in the Pool area, Naya and Kitchen, and have an eclectic assortment of CD's: classical, pop, rock, brass, jazz, etc. spanning 1940's to present day, (scary!) which you're welcome to use, (or play your own cd preferences) We also have a substantial number of books of all types (no dog eared oldies). There's also a TV/DVD facility in the sitting room with 100+ DVD's to choose from. If you like interactive table games, you may Want to try our 'Mexican Train' 15 spot dominos (totally different from UK dom's) rules are easy to follow so all ages can play. They've proved to be seriously addictive (some guests refusing to go to bed). Oh! yes we have WI-FI.

Casa Largo is listed as 'antigua' ancient and its thick exterior walls insulate the interior from the suns rays. This eco friendly action can be augmented by electric fans, available in all rooms, to ensure a cool respite during the hottest days and enable you to enjoy a pleasant nights sleep.

'Paraje' Paredon (the 'place' called Paredon) is located 5 km north of its parent town, Pinoso, which is renowned for its clean air, good wine and the longevity of its population. It is quite a wealthy town, this being courtesy of Mount Coto, knicknamed "Marble mountain", reputed to be the largest marble quarry in Europe don't panic! you can't see or hear it!. The duties paid by the marble extraction companies, together with income from the salt, which sits below the marble and is pumped in slurry form down to Torrevieja (who omit to mention the source of much of 'their' salt) swell the town coffers quite nicely.

Pinoso is also famous for its shoes really soft leather, sheepskin? which are extremely comfortable, amazingly light and surprisingly stylish!. Highly recommended for diabetic's and others with issues relating to their feet. (There is an outlet shop in Pinoso, well worth a visit). The town is also acclaimed for its sausages, known throughout Spain and sold in "El Cortes Ingles" 'the' #1 store in Spain.

When we arrived in 2002 the area had a handful of Brits. Its now home to circa 600+ UK expats plus
a wide assortment of other nationalities. Many bars, shops and restaurants are now bi-lingual and all very welcoming, providing traditional Spanish cuisine from 'menu del dia' to 'a la carte'. Some offer traditional English/Continental/Spanish, We are happy to recommend 'Esta Aqui' and laTorre. We're sure you'll enjoy your gastronomic adventure in Pinoso and even venture to nearby towns (or further!), so whatever your palate or preference you certainly won't starve during your visit to the 'campo'.

Fruits grown in this predominately agricultural region are nisperos, cherries, peaches, apricots, apples, pears, almonds, olives and sharon fruit coming to harvest through the year. But quite rightly, it's the grape that rules. Fields and fields of 'wine on the vine'. Viva Uva! Viva Vino!

Wine buffs will be pleased to find themselves perfectly situated to enjoy the fine wines of the many Bodegas in both Alicante and Murcia provinces. Indeed Jumilla, home of the world famous summer wine festival check www is just 36km away. Many, many bodegas producing excellent wines, with some of the larger establishments offering guided tours and sampling opportunities, so make sure someone else picks the short straw to drive. Pinoso, Culebron, El Seque and other local bodegas have justly earned reputations for quality wines. El Seque is most notable as its wines are sold throughout Europe even before the grapes have been harvested! and boasts a two to three year waiting list.

Although designated 'Inland', we're only about an hour from the coast, so vibrant Benidorm 102km, just over an hour away and many other resorts (more sedate but equally enjoyable), are within easy reach, as are impressive historical centres such as Cartagena 126km. Closer to home you can indulge yourself with a visit to the thermal baths at Fortuna 30km, or Archena 36km, where you can arrange a day of relaxation with therapeutic treatments. check www

Outdoor lovers can enjoy the many well signed walking routes nearby, while the more adventurous can get their adrenalin pumping with a visit to the International status Go-Kart tracks at Villena or Jumilla where you can indulge your formula one fantasies at ground level. The thrill of riding the river Segura water rapids is less than an hour away, OR, do what we all do best on holiday and just relax in the sun by the pool!.

Our provincial capital, Alicante 70km is an impressive cosmopolitan city boasting excellent restaurants and shopping facilities (El Cortes Ingles, etc), which, together with its beautiful harbour area and pristine beaches overlooked by the magnificent Santa Barbara castle, makes for a lovely day out. Why not bypass the lifts to the castle and reach it via the "old town". Hardy walkers can follow the original paths and walkways used for many many years. Quite a demanding but rewarding challenge.

You can experience some Spanish hospitality, by strolling 60 metres to our neighbours, Enrique and Reme, whose Spanish bar restaurant is a popular haunt of both locals and expats. Reme rules the kitchen, cooking "homemade" traditional Spanish meals (and snacks) though out the day.

Our home is an ongoing WIP But we don't work when we have guests so please be assured your holiday won't be blighted by the infamous disruptions of 7am wakeup calls and cement mixer music,
Hope you like the pic's that accompany this protracted narrative.

Finally, We'll be living at the other end of the house, it's distinctly separate from your accommodation, more like being a next door neighbour, So we're close enough to be on hand should you need any help or advice. We also undertake daily pool maintenance to ensure the pool facilities are consistent and water the courtyard plants each morning and evening. We generally clean the pool just after sunrise (takes approx. an hour) and close it at 8pm then start the filter operation at 10pm (that's as close as we get to being an hotel).

PS: Our Home is 58 metres / 63 yards / 189 feet long - Hence her name: Casa Largo Long House

PPS: We're reasonably flexible regarding arrival and departure times, but if there are people arriving
on the same day as you leave (very rare), we ask for your help in vacating your rooms so we have time to prepare them for the incoming guests. We'll always work to accommodate you if there is an overlap.

Couple from Blyth, United Kingdom Sep 2019

had an amazing stay at casa largo. it's a beautiful property with lots of space and privacy. Brian and Margaret were amazing hosts very helpful and friendly. pinoso is a lovely little town with nice bars and restaurants. holiday was nice and relaxing just what we needed would definitely recommend and return!

Family from Sunderland, United Kingdom Aug 2019

We had a fabulous week long stay at casa largo, Margret and Brian were great and stayed up extra late/very early for our arrival. The welcome package was fantastic and got us off to a great start.

The house was lovely and clean and had everything we needed for our stay.

The courtyard, outside dining and pool areas were fantastic, clean, very private and had plenty of seating in the sun and shade.
You could easily stay out there all day long!

Only an hour away from the coast this was a great place to stay away from the hustle and bustle but close enough for a day trip. We managed Albacete, Murcia, Alicante, Benidorm and a few more local towns and villages.
There are plenty of things to see and do in the area so plan ahead to make the most of it. You get great views from the top of the castle at Jumilla!

Pinoso was just a short car journey away and had everything we needed petrol, shopping, bars and restaurants a plenty.

We ate at both local restaurants one very Spanish ( we need to brush up!) And one very english no phrase book needed here, both pleasant and within walking distance of the house.

Couple from Dewsbury, United Kingdom Sep 2018

Owners directioms from airport were spot on. Villa in a nice quiet rural area just what we wanted. Fenced and gated property making it very secure. Brian and Margaret very helpful. The suprise welcome pack was very welcome for the morning breakfast. Accomadation very spacious, clean and tidy, everything you needed was there. Courtyard and pool fantastic, both a definate sun trap sometimes too hot but the accomodation was always cool, plenty of shade to be found if needed, pool cleaned twice a day by Brian, so spotless Pinoso town only 5 minutes drive away with plenty of bars and resraurants etc. Beautiful large building. Would love to go again. 5 stars ***** Glen and Sylvia
