“Very comfortable, well-equipped and spacious house in pretty village situated in a dramatically beautiful area of Spain”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This property is situated about 20 km inland from the Almeria coast, on the edge of the Cabo de Gata National Park. It is conveniently located a few minutes walk from the main square of Nijar, which is a small but attractive town with several bars and restaurants, renowned for its pottery, and surrounded by dramatic scenery. You will experience the authentic Spain if you stay here. The house belongs to the mother of Ita, the friendly landlady, and it is very comfortable and well equipped, with a good sized garden and two terraces. My friends and I thought it was actually nicer than the photos indicated-the kitchen/ diner was rather dark, but the other parts of the house were light and spacious. There are four bedrooms which sleep two, and two other single bedrooms, all of which are air conditioned and have good hanging space. The kitchen has ample crockery, cutlery and equipment, although it is rather old-fashioned There is a bathroom on each of the three floors, which is very convenient, and the furnishings are quirky and distinctive, rather than the bland, neutral style in some holiday lets. The property has a garage, but we parked in the large car park behind the house.
The Cabo de Gata park is very dramatic and there is plenty to see and do in the area- a big range of lovely beaches, visits to the film sets where they shot the spaghetti westerns, coastal walks, dramatic scenery and views, caves, and a couple of historic towns inland as well as Almeria which is worth a visit for the archaeological museum, cathedral and Moorish fortress.
Ita is welcoming and friendly and easy to deal with, and we ate well in Nijar. Overall I would recommend this rental for groups of friends, families with older children, and people with pets. There are a lot of stairs, so it is not so good for elderly people or those with any kind of mobility issue, and Nijar is fairly quiet at night so it is not ideal for clubbers. However, for a fun holiday in a place with varied things to do and a comfortable, spacious house with great outdoor areas, this is just the ticket.
