    We are fairly remote here so own transport is essential. We have a small and friendly bar 10 minutes walking distance with the town of Oria about 1 mile away. Oria has 4 supermarkets, 2 Banks and several bars & cafes. The Main town of Albox is approximately 20-25 minutes drive. We are surrounded by Almond and Olive trees and the view from the sun terrace is beautiful. Approx 1 hour away from the coastal resort of Mojacar, plenty of markets to visit and loads of small Spanish pueblos to investigate.
