I put a lot of effort in to ensuring that clients have a great holiday in my villa. I become actively involved, if required, to assist in any arrangements necessary, and my experience in organising and knowledge of the local area I am sure would be invaluable to you. I enjoy cooking at home, entertaining, golfing, going to the beaches and dining out.
Why Wayne chose Antas
It took me two years of searching southern spain before I found this incredible area. Often referred to as "forgotten spain" this is the warmest and driest climate in the whole of Europe. The stunning skies, given the lack of artificial light, makes for amazing star-gazing, and during the day, phtographers and artists alike flock to this area to pursue the stunning colours. The main beach resorts at Mojacar and Garrucha have maintained sensible building levels which do not impact on the surrounding area the way other parts of coastal spain have. The area is typical of "old" spain, with many traditions still living on here. I was fortunate to spend time enjoying their very placid way of life and cannot emphasise enough how relaxing and magical this area is.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is within 5 minutes of the motorway network affording easy access to airports, beaches and supermarkets, bars and restaurants, whilst retaining the privacy, quiet setting and stunning views I searched for. There are many local spanish bars for you to try the "menu del dia", typically good local produce cooked the spanish way and served to you traditionally for a very modest price! Many of these are within walking distance, all you may see on the way is the goat-herd!! The sheer size and well thought out design of the villa means that whether you are a group of 16 or a family of four, you will be equally at home. You can truly have "peace & plenty" at this property, past clients have referred to it as an "undiscovered gem"!
Pool / Spa
A fabulous villa with facilities for all ages.
Our family (12 of us) stayed at the villa for a week to celebrate a ‘big birthday’. It was ideal for all of us with ages ranging from 2 years old to 70 and plenty of room to find a quiet corner. The pool was superb and such a great size for swimming. The tennis court was also well used. There were plenty of places to visit in the area although the children always wanted to get back to the villa!
I would recommend this villa to anyone - we all hope to go back again.
Thank you for your kind words. Yes, there is plenty of room for everyone, and we sincerely hope you return one day. Really enjoyed meeting you, perhaps next time a round of golf on one of our superb local courses!
Fantastic Family holiday villa.
Just returned from a two week family holiday (14 of us) at finca lucia
4th - 18th aug 2018. And have to say it was everything we had hoped for and more.
The villa itself as the photos suggest is beautiful, very clean and just the right size for our party, the kitchen which for us was the most important room as we cooked most nights was plenty big enough very well stocked with pans and cutlery etc, one large range oven/hob and a separate single oven/grill so cooking for 14 was fine.
We ate all are meals and sat mosts nights outside on the patio area just out from the back doors, perfect!!
The pool itself would be hard to better at any other villa, great size, temperature, and plenty deep enough to dive/jump in without the risk off banging your head on the bottom like a lot of pools. The gardens with private tennis court, table tennis, bbq area, outdoor toilet/shower, plenty of sunbeds and importantly especially during the august midday sun two shaded seating areas, was again the perfect size and layout for us all.
We really had no complaints at all during our holiday, none of us wanted to leave
and we even joked about staying for another week and not letting the new guests in!!
You will need to hire cars as the villa is tucked away in a lovely quite spot just outside antas but that means its so peaceful at night! supermarkets are not within walking distance.
This is a five star property, but what made the whole experience even better was the owner Wayne, from the time I booked he could not of been more helpful we had to fly to Alicante which is a 2 hour transfer, he arranged a coach to pick us up from the airport, lunch at a local restaurant 5 mins from the villa when we arrived, the use of his online shopping account so the food/drinks etc were at the villa when we arrived and more besides. Thanks again Wayne much appreciated. Shame you had to fly back to England for family reasons, would of be good to sit down for a cold beer with you.
If your thinking about holidaying at finca Lucia, do it!! you will not be disappointed.
Excellent beautiful spacious Villa
We stayed for two weeks. The villa is fabulous and has everything you could want. There are plenty of areas to sit in the sun or the shade. The pool is beautiful and kept clean and clear.
The owner was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
I would recommend this to anyone.
We stayed at Finca Lucia in September for two weeks (5 of us, family). What a lovely, peaceful villa and location this is (although you do need a car). After having ogled the online photos for months, we were not disappointed. So much room at this villa that even if it was full to capacity, you'd still have enough space for everyone. The pool........wow, what a pool and I can say hand on heart that after years of villa holidays in the Med, this is without doubt the best pool I have ever had the pleasure of swimming in, big enough for those who like "proper" swimming but also big enough for everyone to have fun in ! The kitchen is very well equipped and has plenty of room to work in, the lounge is comfortable although to be honest none of us spent an awful lot of time in there. All bedrooms are comfortable and have aircon (a Godsend for a comfortable nights sleep) and plenty of storage space etc. My brother and I even indulged in an early morning game of tennis.......just the once though, far too much like hard work !! We made some lovely memories here and it was all over far too soon ! It's very hard to find anything to dislike about Finca Lucia and I'd have no hesitation recommending it to anyone.
Wayne, the owner, is such a welcoming and friendly person and he couldn't do enough for us during our stay. He organised a BBQ for us at the villa and invited over lots of friends we have made in the area over the past few years which was much appreciated by us all. He is more than happy to accommodate your every need but is the height of discretion. A great guy and helped make this an enjoyable and memorable holiday - thanks Wayne, it was very much appreciated and we do hope to visit again.
Finca Lucia is an amazing house that exceeds all expectations. Wayne has thought of everything a holiday maker could want when designing it. A shaded breakfast table overlooking the pool in the morning, dappled sunlight over a vine covered area for afternoon tea and a pavilion providing shade in the evening that could seat all 15 of us. It was hot this August but a breeze and shade meant you could laze around the huge, clean, deep, pool all day. And great evening lighting meant many a midnight swim.
The bedrooms were large with comfy beds and huge en-suites. Timed air conditioning was a real bonus. The kitchen was well equipped for mass catering.
Wayne was an attentive host, very charming and nothing was too much bother. He even came round to check on the pool attendant and gardeners.
I would highly recommend this house for large and small parties.
Thank you for your very kind review. It certainly is a remarkable area to visit, and pleased you enjoyed the amenities the house had to offer.
It was so nice to see a good group of friends with their children relaxing at the property, I hope you have some great memories and hope you decide to return one day.
Thank you once again.
Stunning Villa and service.
The photographs really do show this superb villa accurately. What they don't show is the effort that the owner, Wayne, puts in to make sure your stay as perfect as possible . Nothing was too much trouble and his suggestions and advice about the area were hugely useful. We went as a groups of families with older teenage children. The villa was close enough for them to experience the beach nightlife in Mojacar. The location of the villa is peaceful, birdsong in the morning, with lovely views of the Sierras nearby. the facilities are excellent, the bedrooms lovely, and the pool is super large and clean. We have travelled all over Southern Europe over the past 30 years and taking everything into account this is the best villa we have stayed in.
"We are staggered by your extremely kind words. It is a credit to all who strive so hard to ensure that our clients stay is such a happy one, I will pass on your comments to everyone. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us so much, particularly as you live in one of the nicest areas in the UK, and we would be delighted to welcome you back, should you ever choose this incredible area to holiday again. Best regards Wayne"
Special interest holidays:

We can organise tours for you, also this is possible for birdwatching. Artists flock to this region, bearing in mind the fabulous colours, long days of sun and the best climate in Europe! Walking and cycling trips may also be arranged, please enquire!
The villa is about 10 minutes from the nearest beach. There are several blue flag beaches nearby, several of them with beach bars and facilities and safe for children, including Mojacar, Garrucha and Vera. The Cabo De Gata Natural Park lies around 20 minutes away, this stunning protected area should not be missed! One of the beaches San Jose, was voted as Spain's top beach!
Very well situated, being only 5 mins from the local motorway network, making transfers to the airports very easy. Almeria 40 mins. Murcia 1hr. Alicante and Granada too are within easy reach. Although it is preferable to have a car, there are bars/restaurants within a 10/15 minute stroll of the villa. Main train stations and ports are only a short distance away! Although near to all of these facilities, the villa is situated in stunning private seclusion!
The local town is Antas, a lovely, Spanish, white washed town with nice bars, restaurants and shops. The nearby Cuevas Del Almanzora is of particular interest, with a fabulous castle and many cave dwellings, still inhabited today! The stunning area of Baza is also great for a day out, offering superb views over the largest water reservoir in Spain, with thermal springs useful for any aches and pains you may bring with you! Very therapeutic!
There are many smaller "spar" type shops in the local villages, larger supermarkets available in Vera, which is 5 mins by car. here you can buy all the provisions you need - amazing fish counters at prices you won't believe, all fresh for the barby!
Plenty of banks in Antas, together with a doctor, dentist should the need arise! Too many place of interest to go in to, but all information available at the villa. Go-carting, water parks, not to forget the Spaghetti Western villages where Clint made many of his movies! Great fun with cowboy shoot-outs daily!
