Rental villa in historic location
Five Double Rooms
El Mirador del Castillo sleeps 10 people, in five charming double rooms with full bath or shower en suite. The bedrooms on the upper level surround the enclosed private garden with swimming pool. All enjoy spectacular views. On the ground floor, the 60m2 salon has high ceilings, fireplace and solarium. A basic kitchen with breakfast nook adjoins the salon. Double doors open to the garden and central pool. There are various exterior and interior seating and dining areas. All rooms have air-conditioning and free Wifi. The villa is usually rented as a whole but individual rooms are available between times.
El Mirador del Castillo was built on the ruins of a 16th century castle. The historical site on the crest of Mojacar’s old town overlooks the valley, the nearby villages and the Mediterranean. The views are spectacular, especially at sunset. The enclosed property, with no immediately adjacent neighbors, is well suited to family reunions, celebrations, small weddings and conferences. Off-street parking can be reserved. The prestigious villa may be rented from Easter through October.
The Andalucian garden has a central pool, surrounded by shaded arcades. It has a giant palm, olive and red pepper trees and flowering plants. Extensive covered and uncovered terraces reveal nooks and corners for reading, taking a siesta or sharing a cold bottle of cava with friends. The resident Spanish caretaker looks after the property and maintains the adjacent, small, quiet café bar, handy for residents lounging by the pool.
The center of Mojacar’s old village, with its narrow winding streets, pretty squares, small shops and a variety of restaurants and bars, is only 100m from El Mirador del Castillo. The beach, entertaining beach bars, discotheques and shopping center are 1.8km down the hill. Buses run every half hour but many people enjoy the walk. It is the perfect place to stay and rest, or for exploring the coast of Almeria and stunning interior. Close to Mojacar Playa, Garrucha, Cabo de Gata National Park, Vera Playa and Almeria. Granada is 2 hour’s drive away.
The privacy and spectacular location make El Mirador del Castillo the right place for romantics, beauty lovers, contemplatives and those who enjoy a night out in a lively village without moving the car. The quiet Café Bar is there to serve resident guests but its external terraces open to el Mirador, the Lookout. Sunset and moon rise are spectacular. If just passing by, enjoy a late breakfast or a vinito here before walking a few paces down to the restaurants in the heart of Mojacar village.
