This traditional Spanish village is set in the foothills of the Cabrera mountains, close to Mojacar and Garrucha, and only a 25 minute drive from the sunning beaches of the Costa Almeria. Guests can lose themselves in the small cobbled village streets, sit and admire the stunning views towards the coast from the cafes at the top of the village or take one of the many walking routes around the old mining village. There is a municipal/communal pool in the village, which is open to the public from June to September.
The apartment is less than a 5 minute walk to the beaches and two small fishing harbours that frame the village. Villaricos would make the perfect holiday get away for beach lovers who like to be close to amenities, but still retain the Spanish village atmosphere. There is a small front terrace where guests can sit and enjoy a morning coffee before heading to the beach or to the many local cafes, bars and restaurants in the village for breakfast. Guests can sit in the harbour café and watch the fishing boats coming and going, or take a stroll along the seafront promenade. The apartment is less than a five minute walk to a small supermarket, fruit and veg shop, bakery, numerous bars, cafes and restaurants, and a pharmacy. There is also a large bustling market held in the centre of the village every Sunday, selling clothes and shoes, locally grown fruits and vegetables and local crafts and jewellery.
