Another Wonderful Holiday at El Olivar

Dear Sarah, Thanks you so much for such a wonderful couple of weeks. This is our third visit and we will never grow tired of your wonderful, exotic, peaceful and joyous place. We brought some friends with us this time and they too, were bowled over by the beauty and elegance of your home. Thank you again, for allowing us all to share and create such lovely memories.

Fabulous 2 weeks - wish we didn't have to leave...

El Olivar is an idyllic villa, set away from it all and still within easy reach of everything you could want. Spotlessly clean and very well equipped (especially the kitchen if you like to cook), the house is a joy to stay in both inside and out. In the 2 weeks we were there, I don't think we managed to sit in all the available little spaces around the garden and courtyard, despite our best efforts. The pool is spectacular and very well kept (3 visits in 2 weeks by unobtrusive pool men) and the outside terrace is a great place to eat or just sit about. The boys enjoyed the eerily silent trampoline! Locally, the Super Turre supermarket is really well stocked (especially if you yearn for English things!) but we found the Mercadona in Garrucha really good and a bit quieter than the one in Mojacar Playa. Loads of places to eat, wander and people watch in both Playa and Garrucha too and plenty of touristy shopping all over Mojacar Pueblo. Almeria old town is a good place to visit should you want to venture further afield. Sarah was very welcoming and it was easy to meet up on our way to the villa. I have no hesitation in recommending El Olivar and was genuinely sad to leave.

Exceptional!

High in the hills above Turre/ Mojacar, extended family enjoyed a remarkable property where high expectations were easily exceeded. We especially enjoyed the master bedroom with outside shower attached! Mojacar Pueblo provided numerous shopping and dining opportunities and the Playa is only minutes away for the beach lovers.

Great place to relax for us off season

We took a month to get away from Northern European weather late January. The house just fitted our needs perfectly..it was comfortable and well placed.with relaxing atmosphere and good outdoor areas..even tho we did not swim in Janauary!.we drove down for UK..with the car it was easy to take our dog for walks or to the beach and easy to get to Turre with its supermarkets and restaurants or to Mojacar and the many restaurants there too. Sarah was a pleasure to deal with and the whole thing could not have been easier Suffice to say we plan to return in 2017
Owner comment
Thanks, Rick. I look forward to seeing you next year.

Wonderful

We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful villa in the mountains. The owner, Sarah, was a pleasure to deal with, great communication and provided everything needed for a truly relaxing break. Myself, husband and 2 teenage boys, swam, BBQ’d and just had a real chill out break, helped by the superb weather, between 26 and 31 degrees at end of October. A car is required but it’s just a short drive down to the seafront at Mojácar where there are some very good restaurants. A particular favourite we discovered was ‘Neptune’, where they serve a first class paella. So thank you Sarah for the loan of your beautiful house and we will most certainly return.
Owner comment
Thank you, Michelle. I am so glad you all had a fun time. Look forward to seeing you all again.

Secluded, Wonderful

A beautiful house set in the seclusion of off-road life a wink away from wild Andalucian mountains. The house is very well furnished for visitors, beautifully furnished, air-conditioned, and boasts a gorgeous pool surrounded by generous terrace, olive trees, great views and if you're lucky in the evening, the local goat herd and their farmer. This is the only holiday home we've ever returned to (and we've been to lots over the years!) - it's calm, quiet, and yet 5 minutes away from local amenities. Sarah, the owner, couldn't be lovelier or more helpful. It's one of those rare places that you can't stop telling people about, but at the same time you don't want anyone else to know about it!!
Owner comment
Thank you Lucy. I look forward to seeing you all again next summer.

Bliss and peace

El Olivar is a real joy to stay in as a holiday home. Unlike so many other rentals, this is a real home. Everything is to a very high standard and the comforts are excellent. Location is great; so peaceful and tranquil, yet very convenient for Turre and also Mojacar pueblo and beach resort areas.

Wonderful Home

We absolutely loved Sarah's home - it felt so comfortable and cosy - very unlike most of the rental properties I have stayed in previously. The house is very well designed and actually is a lot better in real life than it looks in the pictures! We swam in the huge pool every day and spent most of our time outside lounging on the furniture taking in the wonderful views and making the most of the peace and serenity. It's very well located between Mojacar and Turre, close to all the attractions of the area and to some very good supermarkets. It was wonderful to come back to such a lovely home each day. It feels very large and has got heaps of little places to sit and ponder. We found lots of really great local restaurants - Sarah was full of great recommendations and very helpful with everything. The only negative was that we stayed 2 weeks instead of 2 months!! Highly recommended and worth every penny. The booking process was made very easy because Sarah was a great communicator and answered all of my questions very promptly.

Winter break to shed the winter blues

We had a month at El Olivar to get away from the grey winter. The house was superb and we felt very priviledged that Sarah would share her lovely home with visitors. The house was well equipped, comfortable and spacious. Sarah greeted us and gave us a full tour to acclimatize ourselves, there was also a very informative guide available on how everything worked. We loved the location, Turre just a short drive away and the beaches ten minutes. The position of the house was beautiful with panoramic views and only the sound of sheep and goats to hear. We enjoyed picking oranges, grapefruit and lemons from the garden and being able to sit and dine out on the terraces. As we travel with our dogs we were so pleased to have such an empathetic hostess as to having dogs at her home. We will be booking for a return next year we so enjoyed this special place.Thank you

Paradise in the Andalucian Countryside!

The most beautiful villa we have ever stayed in. Sarah kindly met us and took us to the property.Private but not remote we loved the location, close to Turre which has a great supermarket and lovely square. Mojacar beaches are only a 10 min drive away although I have to say my partner and I spent most of our time around the pool, which was fabulous, larger than most and with views to die for. The overall feel to the villa is relaxed, stylish and overflowing with character reflecting Sarah's interests and travels. We didn't want to leave and will certainly be back next year!!!!!

PERFECT HOUSE!

Wondrous & grand Andalucian finca! This incredible villa is located among spectacular olive, orange and lemon groves. Beautiful landscaping, courtyard and pool. Perfectly maintained and truly impressive on every level. Very, *very* tastefully decorated. Away from it all in the quiet of the countryside yet close to the beach, Mojacar village- and of course, the SuperTurre market. We spent many a night on the delightful terrace with our guests. Mojacar is a magical place, and this house was just enchanting. I can't recommend this property highly enough. R

EXPECTATIONS EXCEEDED

I and 3 friends stayed at Finca el Olivar in September. It was a good time to stay - perfect weather and uncrowded(out of school holidays). The villa is well located. It is set in countryside, quiet and secluded but close to the beaches and just a short distance from the Moorish white hilltop village of MOJACAR and the fishing village of GARRUCHA with its attractive harbour and promenade. TURRE the nearest place to shop is minutes away. There is lots to do in the region, Sarah the owner left very helpful information notes on local attractions. The villa is spacious, furnished to a very high standard, clean and comfortable with all mod cons including satellite TV and Wifi. The swimming pool was great and had wide ranging views over orange groves beyond into the distance. We had a great time - much of spent it lounging on the outside terrace enjoying the facilities of the villa. We will return. VA

A Fabulous Fortnight at Finca El Olivar!

We had a wonderful fortnight at Finca EL Olivar. We all loved the villa and spent many hours around and in the lovely pool. Lots of al fresco dining and we especially enjoyed Sarah's olive oil and jams. We also enjoyed trips to Carboneras, Garrucha, Puerto Rey and Viilaricos. Hope to be back sometime for another relaxing family break.

A Wonderful Holiday!

This was our first time to stay here, and we all had a great time. The kids loved the pool and the house is exceptional - full of character and very homely. We loved the home made strawberry jam and Sarah's lovely olive oil. Good restaurants, supermarkets and beaches locally, but really the house was the focal point or a great holiday.

"Secluded Paradise"

A perfect holiday in the countryside, cut off from the masses, but near enough to civilisation when you need it (5 min drive to well-stocked supermarket and restaurants, 10 min drive to beach if you want it, but with this home I can't see the appeal of a busy beach). A very well-designed house, thoughtfully laid out and tastefully furnished. Wonderful pool with far-reaching views. My partner and I have taken our boys to many pretty, secluded villas and houses abroad before, but this is something a little bit wonderful. Really hope to return soon.

" Perfection "

This was our first time to stay in this exceptional villa and it more than lived up to our expectations. The house is full of personality and is a home away from home. The outside eating areas are a joy and our kids (12, 11, 9) had hours of fun in the pool. Mojacar pueblo well worth a visit - especially to eat in the evenings. Sarah very kindly left some of her own olive oil & jams which we enjoyed. Local supermarket in Turre is well stocked. I would definitly reccommend this villa for a relaxing holiday and we hope to return again.

relaxing stay

We had a second holiday at this home, and thoroughly enjoyed it once again. The pool area is a sun trap and there are many lovely restaurants not too far away. Having full English TV also was an advantage during Wimbledon.

"Just Perfect "

What an amazing house to spend some time in! We had such high expectations before arrival and these were exceeded. The house provides a perfect balance of outside space and calm interior which made our week just not enough. This is a perfect romantic break for 2 - short drives to interesting towns, but, real tranquillity to ensure you relax. Self catering is our usual option for holidays over the years and this house is now at the top of our list for a return to Spain. I really can't recommend it highly enough - so go on and treat yourselves!!!

"Two fantastic weeks"

"Two fantastic weeks" We spent two marvelous weeks in this beautiful house, which is very well furnished (a house with a soul...) and equipped (in particular for cooking!). We enjoyed very much the terrace with is different seating and eating areas, the delicious swimming pool, big and fresh, and the garden full of flowers and fruits (green lemons, figs, olive trees, etc.). The weather was also perfect despite the season which is deemed very hot (however, after three seasons in Andalusia, we have never suffered from the heat - albeit in houses with pool). The location is ideal: Casa Olivar is secluded (what we wanted) but close to shops (Turre) and Mojacar Pueblo (nice village with great views and restaurants) and Mojacar Playa (beautiful beaches not too crowded and clean with great chiringuitos). We enjoyed very much visiting Almeria, Cabo de Gata, Sierra Cabrera, Sorbas Natural Park and Cuevas, Mini-Hollywood (fantastic zoo for children and parents!). We highly recommend this house.

"Wish We Could Keep it a Secret!"

"Wish We Could Keep it a Secret!" As my husband's parents live in Spain we have visited a lot and I can honestly say that Sarah's house is the nicest we have ever stayed in. It is absolutely beautiful and perfectly designed. Sarah and her husband have poured time and love into it and the results are awe inspiring. The pool is beautifully fresh, has sun all day and is big enough to swim properly in. Even on the hottest days the terrace is cool and breezy and the outdoor shower is an absolute delight as is the Moroccan inspired bathroom. It is set in beautiful surroundings, olive and lemon groves line the drive way, perfectly placed stone Buddhas inspire calm and the only sounds you hear are the gentle toll of goats' bells and cicadas. The house also has every convenience you could wish for; a lovely cool kitchen which opens onto the terrace and the beautiful inner courtyard, barbecue, washing machine, sun shades, plus Sarah's delicious homegrown lemons and olive oil. The house is secluded but only a short drive to the nearest town and supermarket. Mojacar which has loads of restaurants and a nice beach is only ten minutes away. It is also perfectly positioned to explore the stunning coastline of the Cabo de Gata plus the amazing scenery of 'Mini Hollywood' where the Spaghetti Westerns were filmed. If you're there around 7 o clock when the fierce heat of the day has died, the light is perfect and you can really imagine you are in the Wild West. It is perfect for children, they adored the pool, the tree house, pretending they were cowboys and snorkelling in the Cabo de Gata. However, it would also be perfect for adults wishing to get away from it all. The separate studio room also makes it a good choice for families with teenagers or friends. We would definitely stay again hence the title!

Thanks Tall family!

"A wonderful house in a fabulous setting"

"A wonderful house in a fabulous setting" We found Casa el Olivar on-line and, seeking a secluded spot for a resting couple of weeks, decided to take a chance. We had no regrets. The house is in a private location, yet minutes from the bustle of Mojacar, and offers a wonderful opportunity to simply relax and unwind. The house represents the culmination of the owner's vision based on her extensive travels and, unlike so many rental properties, it is incredibly warm and welcoming. The owner's books and artwork are on display in this dramatic house, which adds to the feeling that one is a welcomed guest in a friend's home. The kitchen is suitably equipped should you wish to dine in, although there are fabulous restaurants not far away (a special recommendation for the famous 'Fatima's', set up in the hills). Although there is much to do in this beautiful region, we were pleased that the house had multi-channel satellite TV, as our visit coincided with Wimbledon! Mornings were a delight, having coffee over looking the courtyard and then relaxing in peace by the pool. Casa El Olivar represents the opportunity for complete freedom and relaxation, while still being a short drive from a range of bars, restaurants and - of course - the beach. We loved the house and will be returning.

See you again in June!
