This villa has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a/c in all bedrooms and the lounge and wifi, coupled with its location, this is a perfect holiday home. At the front of the property is a gated driveway with space for 1 vehicle.

There is a tiled area around the pool with ample space for everyone to lounge and sunbathe as you take in the beautiful setting.
The beautiful blue flag beach is less than a 100 meters away. There are shops, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance perfect for drinking and dining without needing to get in the car, if you have children there are many play areas along the promenade all the way to the Marina and the town of Garrucha which is within a 10 minute walk maybe a little longer with little ones.
In Garrucha you will find everything that you need, with a fantastic selection of restaurants and bars, in fact, the Marina has had a complete makeover and is wonderful for families, in the summer months there is a great fairground in the town with fantastic pop-up shops, it's a fantastic location and on top of everything mentioned it has everything you need banks, main supermarket, chemist, doctors, great for shopping and every Friday there is a brilliant local market which is one of the best in the area.
Something for everyone: here I have listed beaches, attractions, days out and hot spots for all ages.
Beaches: Almeria, in general, has many beautiful beaches and especially where you are located we have 10 miles of unspoilt blue flag beaches, but if you hire a car then throughout your stay you could visit a new unspoilt beach every day, I have left detailed information at the villa for you to discover and make your own adventure.
For the family we have the excellent waterpark which is 5 minutes away by car, it offers a brilliant day out and allows you to take your own picnic and totally relax for the day as the children splash till their heart's content. Casa Francesca has available food and drinks coolers for you to use at your convenience.
Again at the villa we have left many days out brochures for you to decide on what you want to see and do, for example only 40 minutes away we have the MINI HOLLYWOOD - the Tabernas Desert
Situated in the Tabernas Desert, an established location for the movie industry, the film studios of Tabernas have grown into the wild west tourist attraction know as Mini Hollywood, many many movies have been filmed here look it up you'll be surprised.
Mini Hollywood has three separate itineraries, Oasys Park, Fort Bravo and Western Leone, all are open for visitors and each offers a different wild west adventure for all the family with western shows among the many other attractions. Western Leone and Fort Bravo are still part time working film locations whereas Oasys Park, the largest of the three, is now entirely given over to the theme park business.
Well, then head to Mojacar all the bars and nightclubs can be found along the seafront, offering happy hours, free tapas and splendid beach views. There are so many hip and trendy bars to visit throughout you stay and the beauty of it is, it's a cab journey away so again our location has the best of both worlds.
Casa Francesca is also a fantastic location for people who love to keep fit here is why our spot is perfect for you.
Cycling in Almería
Well, what can we say but Almeria and especially our location is where you find a lot of the professionals and clubs train, why?
Well, Almería gets pretty hot in the summer but makes for pleasant cycling from around October to May each year. With routes along the coast, through the Cabo de Gata Natural Park and also around the edge of the Tabernas desert, there is a real diversity of scenery, with a range of flat and more mountainous options. Fortunately, we have on our doorstep at least 3 professional cycle shops which sell and hire mountain bikes. One of these even hires Specialized mountain bikes!!!
Golfing in Almeria
If you want to get away from it all, the beautiful and unspoilt Costa Almeria could be just the ticket. One of the warmest and driest corners of Europe, golf in the Costa Almeria is perfect any time of year. One of the best places to play is the remarkable Desert Springs. Similar to the desert courses of Arizona, it's the first of its type in Europe,
The attraction of Almeria is that it benefits from the same outstanding climate as the Costa del Sol to the West, but is less developed, and as such is considerably quieter. This delightful blend and a superb atmosphere are making Almeria increasingly popular, thanks to excellent destinations like Valle del Este, Almerimar and the Desert Springs resort.
In addition to the attractions of Almeria, visitors to the region will enjoy the charming fishing villages that are dotted along the coast, while the younger generations might head for the nightlife centres of Roquetas de Mar and Mojacar. With stunning sandy beaches and a rich burgeoning golfing portfolio, the sun-drenched region of Almeria is a first class choice for your next golfing holiday in Spain.
