Excellent, homely yet stylish, spacious property with many bedrooms, lovely living and kitchen areas, large roof terrace with Castle views, and large attached garage (a must if you bring a car to Almeria.) In the old city, ten minutes stroll to the main shopping street, but even closer to cathedral square and many streets of varied restaurants and bars.The tapas here come free or at low cost with the drinks and is excellent, we never had to order a main meal. People are lovely too, no one better than Octavio , who was as nice a host as you vould hope for, Lovely man his daughter who speaks good English, was also very helpful. The house has easy access to the port and to the extensive beaches beyond which, unusually for a big port-city, are within walking distance, Thoughly recommend this property also Almeria, which constantly improves on acquaintence. The caatle is a must see in its own right but was also used in msny movies and TV shows including Game of Thrones. Unbelievably, entrance was Free!
The house is lovely and has all the amenities you need. It is in a quiet street in the old town but easily accessible by car and has a garage. But you do not need a car as everything is close by - mini markets round the corner and numerous tapas bars within 5 minutes walk. The house is spacious and beautifully kept. The roof terrace catches the sun all day and is a great space. The owners are charming and very helpful, providing us with oranges and tomatoes as well as basic foodstuffs when we arrived. We hope to return next year - it is the perfect place to enjoy winter sun.
We really enjoyed our four days in Octavio's house. The location couldn't be better! So close to the center and Alcazaba. The roof top terrasse was super! Everything in the house is good quality!
Octavio and family really made os feel welcome and was only a few minutes away in case we had questions/problems.
Almeria is a very nice place to experience a real Spanish town - not too many tourists. Lot's of nice cafes and restaurants.

Octavio and his family were great hosts. He made us very welcome, collected us at the train station and also took us for a day trip. He also collected another member of our party from the airport and then transported us to the bus station when we were ready to leave Almeria. We have travelled all over Spain and this accommodation would have to rate as one of the very best as a holiday rental. Octavio pops by to make sure everything is ok and used to bring us gifts of wine or fresh vegetables from his friends garden. The house has all the facilities required with plenty of kitchen equipment for self catering. All very clean and tidy on arrival. Everything was explained to us in detail. The house is everything that is described in the promotion material and better. Almeria is a great place to visit and the location of the house makes it easy to walk everywhere. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great stay.
