Las Tortugas - Spacious Country House in tranquil location with pool


Details of the House

Las Tortugas sits in a walled and gated 2500m2 plot. The nearest neigbours are some 200m away and there are only two to be seen, making it a very private place indeed. The views from the garden and from the upper floor are stunning - particularly to the Sierra Cabrera and Mojácar Pueblo to the south and to the sea at Garrucha.

Each floor has two large bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms, well equipped kitchen, spacious living room and in the case of the ground floor, a separate dining room and guest cloakroom. The amount of space and layout makes it particularly suitable for two families or three generations. It also benefits from a very large covered terrace beside the pool fully furnished for relaxing and dining.

The 10metre pool, surrounding terrace and barbecue are set within a half acre walled and gated plot, with covered parking for two cars and extensive parking for several more. Beyond the terraces the garden is mainly graveled and planted with mature trees and shrubs.

Well behaved dog and/or cats are very welcome (with prior written consent) and will love the freedom to roam round the countryside where they will find plenty of wildlife to chase.

VERY SPECIAL PRICES FOR LONG WINTER LETS OF MORE THAN 6 WEEKS. AS LITTLE AS €750PER MONTH (plus utilities) between November and Easter. Special offers for off peak occupation for 4-6 people. See website for details.

This holiday house in Valle Del Este is pet / dog friendly.
