Perfect Villa for a perfect Holiday

The location is perfect for visits to the beach or into the hillside villages nearby. Mojacar playa and the town itself only 10 minutes away. Our favourite place of Villaricos with a small harbour is a delight...but so many places to choose ...that is if you wish to leave the villa!! Having stayed in many places over the years, this has to be the best, most well equipped we have ever stayed in..and the great pool area...plus the first floor terrace sharing wonderful views.....whatever you need is there - and the villa offers space for everyone both indoor and outdoor in comfort and style - we had the most marvelous month of December - and our dogs too...and Jane and Terry could not have been more welcoming and helpful during our stay...Thank you - we will see you again

Excellent getaway

We came across Las Tortugas after an exhaustive search for places that allowed dogs, had a fully enclosed area that they could run around in and was surrounded by good countryside for walks. Las Tortugas delivered. It feels remote without actually being remote. The dogs had their freedom and we only had a 10 minute drive to the shops. The villa is beautiful, providing excellent accommodation - 4 beautiful bedrooms and 2 (yes 2) fully equipped kitchens on 2 floors. This meant that when we had visitors we could hand over the top floor to them so they had some independence from us. The pool was beautiful, but sadly a little chilly for us in November. Jane and Terry have done a brilliant job of making this villa homely but luxurious at the same time. They were very helpful and friendly and Jane kept us plied with jams, bread and some truly memorable brownies. In summary, this house was perfect for us and our needs, but definitely not for those who want to be in the thick of it.... like us!

All the comforts of home and more

We stayed in Las Tortugas for an extended period with our 3 dogs and two cats. Our family and friends visited whilst we were there. On arrival, we felt immediately at home, relaxed and revived after a very long drive from France. We arrived a little late yet the owners, Terry and Jane, were waiting for us with smiles, a warm welcome Jane and, Jane generously provided a few supplies including her home made bread and home made brownies (which are the best I've ever tasted). The whole place was wonderfully presented. We loved the open surroundings and scenery, the fact that the garden was secure for our pets, the large, safe pool (Jane even provided a wrist alarm for when our youngest family member came to stay), the fabulous covered terrace where we spent most of our time lounging and reading. We loved the remote feeling of the house, yet its closeness to everything...the privacy was so welcome. The house itself was so easy to live in. Everything was at our fingertips. Jane and Terry keep the place, indoors and outdoors absolutely spotless. It is really the perfect place for a comfortable and relaxing stay with family, friends and pets - Jane even provided beds for the pets and Terry made a cat-scratching post! These things are not easy to travel with so it was a blessing to have them provided- we felt privileged to be staying there. The furnishings were all of excellent quality - clean and comfortable. ..I highly recommend this property for a family holiday, especially if you have pets. And, its a great base for exploring the area, not too far from amenities but far enough so that you have complete peace and quiet. Book it!

surpasses all expectations

The villa is all as advertised and more. The owners, Jane and Terry could not have been more helpful , friendly and attentive to all our needs. For guests with pets and /or children this place is perfect as it is in a peaceful secluded area but close enough for various beaches, shops, restaurants, golf, fishing etc. We are still in contact with Jane & Terry and will definitely return, especially for Jane's homemade marmalade and banana bread. All in all a marvellous place to stay, would recommend to anyone.

Sheer Perfection

Wow. We wanted somewhere quiet, peaceful, scenic and off the beaten track, somewhere private but close enough to Vera, Bedar and Turre. Las Tortugas didn't disappoint. From just about a year ago (Sept 2014) Jane has been the most helpful owner we have ever dealt with, with advice and information on the accommodation and its surroundings. Upon arrival we knew it was perfect, just what we wanted. Amazing pool, the best we have had in Spain - I just loved the built-in bench at the deep end of the pool, I could sit there for ages!! The interior of the house was such that it was literally a home from home. The main kitchen is a cooks delight and nothing is amiss - and there is ample storage space, something most holiday rentals are very short of. Everything was clean and tidy and totally relaxing. The outside seating/eating area was a sheer joy throughout the whole of the day - cool in the morning and plenty of shade throughout the whole of the day. We enjoy an afternoon walk and we certainly weren't short of those.....we walked on average 3 miles a day through the endless olive groves in sheer silence and peace knowing that the pool was there for us at the end of our trek. The freshly made bread and cakes on arrival were a lovely surprise and were very tasty, and to have a freshly baked cake delivered when the owner comes to clean and maintain the pool was a real treat. Jane is a great baker!! A special mention to Spooky the dog as he was gorgeous and poor old Ben had a couple of starts when he came in the house and woke him up! Jane and Terry were the most accommodating of owners and as mentioned earlier, a great help for us in finding that special place. For us, why go out at night when you have all of that beauty and scenery around you in the perfect location? Las Tortugas provided us with exactly what we wanted and its the most chilled and relaxed we have been away in Spain. We love the area around Vera and Bedar and Las Tortugas is a gem. If you want an away from it all place to stay then this is it. We have certainly come away with some new friends who we keep in contact with. Perfect.

A beautiful Villa, offering seclusion, fantastic walks,with great amenities close by

We chose this property because we wanted somewhere that offered seclusion, but also catered for pets (we have 3 dogs). The Villa was just as described, a magnificent pool, no close neighbours and fantastic walks on your doorstep. There is a first class Golf Course within walking distance and the fabulous beaches and restaurants of Garrucha and Mojacar are a short drive away. The owners Jane and Terry Breay couldn't do enough for us. We had such a great time we changed our plans and stayed a few extra days!!

mrs D Williams

A wonderful place to enjoy the hinterland of Spain without being far off the beaten track. Absolutely stunning views of the mountains near and distant. Blissfully quiet and tranquil, plenty of walking opportunities but the lovely pool and terraces are very tempting. The accommodation is to a very high standard, the food is excellent and we had a lovely warm welcome from our hosts. Highly recommended.

Relax in the serenity of Finca la Serenidad

This immaculate B&B run by Jane and Terry, who are so helpful and kind, was a perfect place for a few days relaxation in the autumn sunshine. Plenty of walks to work up a thirst for local wine and an appetite for Jane's delicious dinners. It was still warm enough in November to swim in the pool and have breakfast on the terrace.
Owner comment
Thank you for the lovely comments, Wendy. You were particularly lucky with the weather when you were there - swimming in November not always guaranteed!
