This is a well maintained, homely appartment very near to many facilities and a ten minute walk to nearest beach. We were met by the key holders who lived nearby and who came in mid week to change the towels. Everything you could possibly need to self cater is in the appartment and the owners kindly let us use the snorkelling equipment in the outside cupboard. We were lucky with the weather and made full use of the patio and nearby beaches. Most evenings we walked south of the village along the cliffs to take in the beautiful sunset and watch the many surfers in the wild waves. We sampled four or five of the nearby restaurants and could not fault any but the daily highlight was the trip to the French bakery for fresh bread, croissants and cakes. All in all a great holiday but do take a sweater for the cooler evenings in winter.
Rented El Carmen from 18/1/17 to 4/2/17,everything you could want is in the apartment, water & milk is included to get you started.Super market 5 min walk away,Beaches right in front of you great view of the mountain.Towels changed twice a week Bedding once a week,parking right out front 20 paces,bar/restaurant 50 meters away,also near the main bus station.This was our second stay and would love to book again but might have a problem as people are getting to know about this great town.
We stayed mainly in El Cotillo which we loved...and it's immediate environent. Sandy bays and sun. The wind was moderate most of the time. Shelter was always available in the lovely inlet surrounded by restaurants and cafes, and in the beach cafe nearby where we spent a lot of time!
Rhe accommodation was clean modern spacious and had a terrace with a great view.
Just spent a week at El carmen and a lovely little place it is, everything you need is there from making a meal or trip round the corner to the well stocked supermarket, very clean when we arrived and towels changed mid week, would recommend to anyone thinking about booking, quiet and out of the way but close enough for everything else
We had a lovely week in this apartment.
Our host's friends met us on arrival and check in was very easy.
The apartment was clean and in a good location with a short walk to the supermarket and restaurants.
El Cottilo is quiet but has enough choice for a short break.
