Casa Christina is a modern detached villa in a quiet gated road in El Toyo, Almeria, South East Spain. It has 4 double bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (1 on suite), large lounge and kitchen with marble floors throughout. Outside it has a large L shaped patio (with shade always available somewhere, if required) and a small garden with cactus and fruit trees. Garden furniture ensures it is always easy to eat outside, and the patio will cope with 8 people easily. Loungers ensure that those whom like the sun can sunbathe with drinks by their side as required.


The back of the house overlooks the communal pool and the ‘Padel’ court (a cross between squash and tennis, played in a court sunk in the ground), both of which are available to the house guests. The L shaped pool is great for kids to play in and has a lifeguard on duty, wherever it is open. It is also great for adults to cool off in on those hot days, with a grass area for sunbathing and just lazing around.

Outside the front of the house there is ample car parking space on the other side of the road, and if required an extensive underground car park is available with allocated spaces. This is accessed via locked doors (key supplied) with vehicle entrance and exit near the end of the road.

Local shops, including a supermarket, ice-cream parlour etc. are a short walk away in Retamar. Places to eat, with a variety of cuisines are also to be found within reasonable walking distance. Remember that most bars provide Tapas free with any drink bought.
