Welcome to your own corner of paradise! Completely private, rural cortijo set among orange groves, overlooking the village of Bedar with excellent views of the Sierra Cabrera mountain range and the Mediterranean sea.
Access is down a steep private road not suitable for novice drivers or minibuses to a private parking area where steps then lead you down to the wide entrance terrace.
This luxury 6 bedroom cortijo including guest annexe, was refurbished in 2016 by our sister company Elegant Homes. The cortijo features numerous orange, lemon, olive and almond terraces on a two acre site. There is also a ramped entrance through the back of the property. In the courtyard, accessed from the kitchen and sitting room, there is a traditional built-in pizza oven and barbecue: perfect to try out homemade pizza, pork ribs or barbecued trout with freshly picked lemons…. or save the lemons for the G&T’s!
There are sofas and comfy chairs on the entrance terrace overlooking the gated pool and heated jacuzzi with wonderful views back to Mojacar pueblo, the Sierra Cabrera and the sea.
The double front doors open into a traditionally styled kitchen/dining area with beamed ceiling, breakfast bar, Andalusian shelving, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge (there’s a second fridge/freezer in the adjacent pantry), football table and log burner.
The main reception room is found on a split level. There’s English and Spanish TV channels, a selection of DVD’s and a Google Chromecast.
There’s a spacious ground floor double bedroom with french doors to the courtyard off the main reception room, a downstairs shower room, separate toilet and a study/single bedroom.
On the first floor, the roomy master bedroom has a Juliette balcony with panoramic sea/mountain views and an ensuite shower room. There are two other bedrooms on the first floor, a double with french windows onto a private east facing terrace and a Moroccan inspired twin bedroom. These two rooms share the adjacent family bathroom which includes a power shower.
The Almacen (Guest Annexe)
Accessed from the pool level is the ‘Almacen’, an independent annexe with spectacular views through its folding glass curtain wall. The annexe has its own shower room and small kitchenette with fridge. A WiFi router and an air conditioning unit has also been installed. It also benefits from its own private terrace.
All bedrooms and living areas have air conditioning and the two reception rooms have log burners for those colder winter evenings. The cortijo has mosquito screens fitted on the windows with rejas on the outside. There is WiFi throughout.
The gated pool terrace has a 8m x 4m private pool, sun loungers, shady pergola and a heated jacuzzi. There are numerous terraces to explore and a mini tennis/ball court.
The village of Bedar can be reached on foot from the cortijo in 15 minutes: the first part of the track is a little steep before joining a tarmac road. With its bars, restaurants, shops, weekly market, bank and gymnasium it has all your local needs.
This property is the ideal base for exploring the region including the local miners walks, the beaches of Mojacar playa or the more secluded beaches of Cabo de Gata. Alternatively visit Nijar for the pottery and local rugs or cool down with a guided tour of the spectacular limestone caves near Sorbas.
Numerous beaches within a 25 minute drive, including family beaches, water sports and a water park (Aquavera, Parque Acuático) in Vera.
