About Sara Campbell
Dominic and I moved to this lovely villa last year and we are enjoying exploring the area. Our large pool has an adjacent tropical style bar and large area with lots of comfortable sofas. This villa is the perfect place for a holiday with lots of indoor and outdoor space to relax and have fun. Outdoor dining is a must and our dining area seats 10 very comfortably; it is the perfect setting for pool and garden-lit dinners on those lovely warm Spanish nights. We mostly cook outside on our large gas BBQ but when we have more time we use our large BBQ specially designed for cooking with wood. We are fortunate to have a great selection of unspoilt, uncrowded beaches close by. Vera Playa has a huge beach (9 km long) and is a short walk or minutes drive; it really is beautiful. The coastline in both directions boasts many beaches and coves as well as the busier Mojacar and Garrucha fishing town only 5 miles away. The Cabo de Gata natural park is a must for beaches, walking and scenary; only a 45 minute drive that you will not forget! Vera's waterpark is close by and there are two good supermarket just 5 minutes away. For eating and drinking out, there are lots of great places to include beach front Lua or bohemian BBME, the choice is huge. The hillside Moorish village of Mojacar Pueblo, a 10 minute drive away and offers winding Spanish cobbled streets with boutique shops, bars & restaurants with beautiful views across the mountains. Mojacar Playa itself offers more beaches and a vibrant nightlife. Further inland is Oasys mini hollywood provide a day trip with a cowboy western theme set and a zoo. For golf-lovers the area has four great courses, two of which are championship level (Desert Springs and Valle de Este). What makes this villa unique More than anything we love looking at the views from our terrace, but the villa offers so much more - games, fun, swimming and simply relaxing.

Expectations and requirements exceeded
My partner and I have had 2 to 4 villa holidays a year for the past 6 years and our 3 week stay in May 18 at this villa is the best so far, so much so that as soon as we returned we booked another 2 weeks in September this year. We liked the feel of space everywhere, the privacy round the pool for the all over tan, the views from the garden are stunning, the outside sitting areas, especially the settees. The location is fantastic, a few minutes drive to supermarkets and quite close to several towns aside from Vera the Vera market is one of the best. The villa is extremely well equipped and there were some lovely personal touches such as flowers and plants and lovely bars of soap. We had a problem with one of the sun umbrellas but within half an hour of mentioning it to the owner it was replaced. Sara and Dominique it was a pleasure to meet you, thank you for allowing us to stay in your home and for making it such a good experience for us, we look forward lots of repeat visits and to seeing all the new planting around the garden.

Sara and Dominic
We spent a wonderful winter holiday in this lovely home. A perfect spot, close to the small town of Vera.
The house is spacious, well equipped, and really comfortable, with a great garden and pool, many different sitting and eating areas, and a cocktail bar too. The owners were really helpful and attentive and made us feel so welcome.
A car is necessary to get around, but lots to see and do, including first class beaches only 10 minutes away.
We would not hesitate to recommend this villa, although it’s tempting to keep it a secret, so we can ensure future visits!
Five days at a five star villa!
We had a wonderful holiday at Howebridge. Sara and Dominic did everything they could to ensure that we had a wonderful and relaxing stay.
Our bedroom was clean and fully equipped with plenty of large, soft towels. The bed was enormous and incredibly comfortable. I could have stayed in that bed for days! The air conditioning in the bedrooms was a lifesaver – particularly when temperatures hit 37 degrees!
The villa itself has everything you need and then some. The bar in the garden was fabulous. We loved making cocktails in the garden by the setting sun. And the pool is gorgeous, and plenty big enough for laps.
The villa has stunning views of both the mountains and the sea, and is only a short journey from Viera Playa or Mojacar Playa.
It really is a lovely little haven, and perfect for a holiday in the sun.
Tranquil luxury with views to die for.
We have been visiting this property for over 10 years but the improvements the new owner, Sara, has made have raised it to a new level.
Obviously it already had the fantastic views and wonderful pool area but the improvements to rest of the garden make it a joy to be there.
They have added a palm tree lined bbq area with a large pergola for dining. The tropical style bar with views of the Mediterranean make never want to
leave the garden, I wish I was back there now!
They have added an extra bedroom since we were last there although we didn’t need it on this trip. The whole house is clean and well maintained
with everything you could possibly need.
We’ll be back, I can’t imagine there is anything new that you could add but I’m sure you’ll think of something!
Immaculate Villa with swimming pool in a fantastic position overlooking the Vera Playa coast. The properties furniture and fittings are top quality and it is spacious and tastefully decorated. The terrace with pool is massive and provides panoramic views of the area from Vera down to the coast. Sara the English owner speaks Spanish and is very knowledgeable about the whole area and things to do. Highly recommended for a relaxing and luxurious family holiday.
This was my first visit to this area and what I found was an undiscovered gem. The area is very beautiful with gorgeous and endless, safe, clean beaches. There are numerous restaurants to choose from on the pretty harbours and beaches and they are excellent value for money. Here I had some of the finest fish I’ve ever tasted.
There are many surprising villages dotted around the area and high up in the mountains and traditionally Spanish. The region is pleasantly void of attractions for clubbers and party people, but full of unspoilt charm.
The villa is stunning, set in extensive, private gardens with a very large swimming pool. I stayed in November and was amazed at how warm the weather was. I can’t wait for my next stay at Howebridge.
