Our family owned apartment is on a small and quiet community of 120 properties located a short distance from the blue flag rated beach at Vera Playa, on the Costa de Almeria. Our Spanish holiday apartment is an ideal base for visiting the nearby Towns of Vera, Garrucha and Mojacar, with their fabulous sea food restaurants and beautiful sandy beaches.
The apartment benefits from air conditioning and is tastefully furnished to a high specification. The apartment offers one double bedroom (one double bed) with built in wardrobe, tv and dvd player one bathroom with bath/ shower & bidet, a fully fitted kitchen and a large lounge/dining area which is furnished with a sofa bed. There is a private outdoor service area for storage and for the drying of washing.
Entertainment is provided for those times when you would rather just chill out and consists of UK satellite TV, DVD and PS2. Wi-fi internet access has been installed for your convenience.
The complex is well designed and landscaped with regular garden maintenance carried out to a high standard. The large communal outdoor pool and separate children’s pool are in a sunny spot and fenced off with a locking gate for safety. Inside the pool area is paved and grassed, an ideal place for those wishing to soak up the warm Mediterranean sun! For those holidaying in the cooler seasons the complex also offers an indoor swimming pool. There is a small play area with swings and rides suitable for younger children.
What can I do while staying at your apartment?
Golf, golf and some more golf!!! Although not located on a golf course, there are four in the near vicinity. All are within a 20 minute drive and all accept day use without being a member.
For those people that dont wish to be governed by the golf course, there is plenty to do in the local area.
You can enjoy a cold drink outside at the local bar whilst waiting for the bus, or inside there are tables and a large TV (Spanish of course, showing lots of sport). Fresh tapas and locally sourced food is on the menu.
There are blue flag beaches at Vera Playa and Mojacar Playa which are suitable for children of all ages. Windsurfing, water-skiing and diving are all available. Chiringuitos (beach café/bars) can be found dotted along the beach and behind the newly-built cycle paths and walkways.
There is a large water park with slides and pools just 5 minutes drive from the apartment. the local bus service serves this attarction and runs by every hour.
Vera is the nearest town only 5 minutes drive away. Vera is a large, traditional Spanish town - look out for the market on Saturday mornings, great for bargains!
Close by is the historic Moorish town of Mojacar which is only a 15 minute drive away. Just before you reach Mojacar is the fishing town of Garrucha, where there are more great seafood restaurants than you can shake a stick at! Also for the more energetic there is a fabulous Go Kart circuit
The Valle del Este golf course has a beach club which is open to the public. The restaurant is very reasonably priced and the service is good. There is also a swimming pool in the grounds that anyone can use free of charge, so long as you are a paying customer at the club, otherwise there is a small fee to pay.
The Costa de Almeria is the warmest and sunniest region in the whole of Europe, so it is no wonder you have chosen this area as your holiday destination! With over 320 days of sunshine a year, it is hardly surprising that this region is becoming a very popular place to both live and visit. The Costa de Almeria is conveniently situated on the southeastern Mediterranean Coast and is easily accessible from the airports of Almeria, Alicante & Murcia.
Vera Playa is growing into a very popular holiday destination, with a great deal of new properties being erected to meet the tourist demand. Vera Playa is ideally located close to the Water Park and neighbouring Golf Courses. It also benefits from a beautiful and unspoilt 8km stretch of white sandy beach, as well as offering shops, restaurants and bars. Vera also has a blue-flag beach area reserved purely for nudists.
Do I need a car?
A car is preferred, although you can get transfers from the airports. The complex is in a largely undeveloped area of Spain and public transport links can be sketchy at best, although they are improving all the time. From the complex you are able to walk to the beach, shops, supermarket, restaurant and other activities within a reasonable time. In peak summer, there is a bus service to local towns which runs into the early hours.
If you want to make the most of discovering the Spanish countryside or to use the golf facilities, a car is essential. There are plenty of activities to be had within a 20 minute drive of the complex. The mountains are only a 2 hour drive away. Imagine waking in the morning and swimming in the sea, driving to the mountains for a day on the piste and returning in the evening for a beach BBQ!!
Just remember though that hire car companines tend to operate on a return the vehicle with an empty tank, not a full tank as we are used to in the UK!! If in doubt, check with your hire company.
Al Andalus Resort is a short distance from the blue flag rated beach at Vera Playa, on the Costa de Almeria. A quiet and family friendly resort with local bars/ restaurants and supermarket nearby.
