We are honoured this year with a TripAdvisor Excellence Award. The Holiday Villa is an original farm house, built more than 150 years ago, it is fully restored and tastefully decorated throughout, we pride ourselves on a home from home feel, your comfort is paramount to us. Our own house is next door, they are nestled side by side enjoying the beautiful views. Peace and tranquility are a given in this stunning environment, enjoy your stay in comfortable surroundings with a unique relaxing atmosphere, not a neighbour in sight, this is an excellent opportunity to wind down and appreciate the countryside and views that accompany it, yet just 2.5 miles from the beautiful Mediterranean coast and the village of Isla Plana. Pretty and rural, but not cut off, in reality not far from anything. We are situated in the heart of the glorious Rambla Del Cañar with breathtaking views at every turn, we are in the foothills of the amazing Peñas Blancas cliffs, they are an imposing and spectacular site, the rambla is an unmade road, which at times maybe uneven and bumpy. The villa, pool and plentiful sunbathing terraces are all south facing, from sunrise to sunset, the pool and grounds are bathed in glorious sunshine, with ample sun-beds and comfortable seating for everyone in and out of the sun. The villa sleeps up to four guests, in two twin bedrooms, both with en-suite, we also have a cot bed and a small double bed settee for a couple of extra guests but the villa is definatly best suited for four. We pride ourselves on our guest villa being welcoming, well equipped, very clean, and just a wonderful place to stay. We do not have air conditioning, the villa is a converted old farmhouse with extremely thick walls, therefore, good insulation, it does however have good quality fans. We provide a beach umbrella, and towels for your comfort on the beach. We also have various pool toys, arm bands and googles for your use. The pool has Roman steps with a handrail, and gently slopes to 1.5 m with a small slide for fun. A peaceful holiday retreat and a good base for sight seeing, rambling, cycling also ideal if you are house hunting. We can also arrange for various massage treatments, have a treatment by the pool or inside the villa. Pricing varies dependant on treatment, booking required. Car hire is essential. A 4x4 is not essential but be aware that the Rambla is a gravel/stoney track and at times can be quite bumpy and uneven, this is a track maintained by the local council not a private road, therefore the quality of the road surface is the responsibility of the local council and not ourselves. Due to the terraced levels the cottage may not be suitable for the less able. As with any hot country and our location in the mountain, please note that we live with nature and therefore the natural habitat of of small lizards, Geko's and insects. Due to our location, internet, TV, Wi-fi and phone signal can at times be limited. For guests staying longer than one week, we can provide a full mid stay clean for a charge of €35, this is optional, although clean sheets will be provided to you after seven nights, free of charge, and clean towels after every three days if needed. The villa does not have a washing machine but we can do personal washing for a nominal charge of €3 per 8K load. All towels for beach use and bathroom use are supplied.

About the neighbourhood
Isla Plana, and The Port of Mazarron Isla Plana is a pretty village on the coast of the bay of Mazarrón with La Azohia to the east and Puerto de Mazarrón to the west, all have their own charm beauty and history. The Port has a new marina only five years old, offering glass bottom boat excursions and fishing boat trips around the coast, its a lively place to visit in the summer months with shops, numerous restaurants and ice-cream parlours staying open all evening, children will love the street entertainers. There are plenty of beaches to choose from, including dog beaches, inflatables, jet ski hire, kayaks and beach bars. Out of season the area has a peaceful and charming feel of laid back Spain, still with plenty of activities to do.
