Lovely Villa, wrong spot!
The owners communication was excellent, the house manager Jane was absolutely lovely and extremely helpful. The villa is lovely. The pool was too cold to use but that’s understandable as it is October. The only downside was the awful smell from nearby animal farms and there were so many flies it prohibits the use of outside to eat. I have to say toward the end of our stay this became significantly better and we were able to sit outside in the evenings.
Just had a fantastic week getaway to Casa Catal. Visited with me, partner and 2 children ( age 4 and 2). Villa was bigger than expected and set up ideally. Villa is all at one level, so ideal for us with young children. Sun all day on the pool but, importantly for us, a nice shaded area outside to eat any time of the day. Pool is very large and perfect temperature at this time of year as well as inflatables for the kids!
Kids spent hours in there. Kitchen was well stocked and the welcome pack covered all our self catering needs. Located in the mountains with beautiful outlooks and we also able to go running down the riverbed each day. Obviously need a car but many beaches within 20-30 minute drive and supermarkets nearby in Huercal-Overa! Easy to check in, great support from Jane before, whilst there and even after leaving! When planning to return to the Almeria area we will book here again!
Very relaxing stay in villa catal, everything at your fingertips, really like a home from home.excel
Sleeping arrangements perfect , couldn't fault a thing about this villa, went trekking in the hills facing the villa and was amazed at the stunning views when reaching the top, highly recommend hiking but make sure to bring plenty of water and food supplies, excellent.
Also hired mountain bikes in playa Vera which we found very cheap at 20€ for three days. You will be fascinated by the local countryside views and shops nearby. I cycled down an old riverbed which stretches to hercolovera.highly recommend.
The local towns very good for bargains and food.
Highly recommend this beautifull place as I had a ball .
Oh and the pool just amazing.
Hoping to return very soon !!!

we have stayed in the villa before..so we knew we were going to have a nice stay. the pool was too cold to use this time of year so that was a bit disapointing but we had another nice stay there. it was clean and tidy. we didnt have to take towels or a hairdrier as these were provided.it was very safe and secure with a high wall/ fence around the whole property..there were a few bits of groceries for us when we got there too..the area and the people were friendly as before..5min drive to town with pllenty of little gift shops and cafes around.with 2 large supermarkets to choose to buy more groceries from.. highly recommended.
Comfortable and convenient Villa, provided a superb base - essesntial as unseasonally cold and wet!
Clean and tidy property and wish the weather had been conducive to use the pool! Was a cold week for our stay and so used most other facilities. Quiet residential area with many villas Owner occupied which was nice to be on an established neighbourhood as opposed to holidaymaker village.
it was fab..
we loved the location of the house. not too close to town but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet with lovely views of the mountains..The villa was lovely. we had a few glutvhes but were sorted out quickly the majority of the time.. will be recommending it to others..
