Casa Lorca is a lovely villa situated on Playa Marques which is one of the best beaches in the area. It is nicely located facing the sea on a small private road of similar properties beautifully lined with palm trees leading to the large quiet communal pool set in a garden which has direct access onto the beach. This is a spacious, air-conditioned property which offers good accommodation on three levels. The villa was built in 2003 and is well presented throughout. The vendor who only uses it for a few weeks a year as a holiday home has owned it from new and has carefully looked after and maintained it so that it is in excellent condition. On the ground floor is a large sun/dining terrace with (new) sun awning which has the feel of an outside room. The front door opens onto the entrance hallway and there is large living room with open fireplace, a well fitted kitchen (the washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer are new) with outside service patio, a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and adjoining bathroom. Outside is a small flower-filled garden, car port and parking area. On the first floor is the master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, en-suite bathroom and large sun terrace with sea view and a further double bedroom again with fitted wardrobes, en-suite bathroom and sea view. Above is a small solarium with sea view. On the lower ground floor (which has natural light) is a large living room, two double bedrooms, bathroom with large walk-in shower and utility room. The advantage of this part of the house is that it feels self-contained and so is good if you have guests who would like a little privacy or perhaps children who want their own space. Casa Lorca is fully furnished and equipped to a high standard and, subject to separate agreement on the purchase of the contents, could be ready to move into if desired. This property is in a quiet location on a lovely beach and is perfect for residential or holiday use and/or to provide a good rental income. All amenities are nearby. If you know the area you may agree this is one of the best up-market developments on one of the best parts of the beach. If you don’t know the location we suggest you come and see for yourself. There are few beachfront properties available of this quality in such a good location at this price and viewing is highly recommended. Local Area Vera is a small town approximately 10 km from the coast although the municipality extends to the sea shore where, a tourist settlement, known as Vera Playa, has been developed. Originally called Baria and located at Villaricos (Rich Village, due to the silver mining industry) Vera relocated in the 13th century. The Christian conquest in 1488, an earthquake in 1518 and the Moorish rebellion in 1568 have all contributed to the character of the town. Legend has it the old town was buried after the earthquake and that an arrow was fired. The existing town grew from where it landed. Vera has a particularly attractive tree-lined town square, Plaza Mayor, with a central fountain, boutiques and street cafés. There are several buildings of historical interest: the Town Hall, 16th and 17th century, The Convent de los Padres Mínimos, 17th century, the Church of the Encarnación, 16th century, built as a fortress to protect the village against pirates, Church of San Agustín, 16th century and the Chapel of Nuestra Señora de las Huertas, 19th century. The Plaza de Toros, Bullring, built in 1879, is the setting for many fiestas, bull fighting and other cultural displays. There are many wonderful pieces of architecture and folklore to be explored, much of which is lovingly explained in the Ethnographic and Archaeological Museum. Vera Playa now forms the main economic activity of Vera and is itself divided into various small areas which locals refer to when identifying a particular location. Las Buganvilleas, Pueblo Laguna and Puerto Rey are the best known and most popular areas. Since 1990, Vera Playa has developed into an important centre for naturism There are several apartment complexes, including Natsun, La Manera, Bahia de Vera and Vera Natura, where naturism is officially permitted, and about two kilometres of beach have been reserved for their use. The only naturist hotel in Spain, the Vera Playa Club Hotel, is also located in Vera Playa. Saturday is market day in Vera town centre where you can find a huge assortment of goods being offered for sale and is arguably one of the best street markets in the area. The local bars & restaurants offer a welcome respite with an array of tapas and pastries, as well as very varied meal options, to suit all palates.
