Gorgeous, inexpensive apartment in Vera Playa, Almería.
The apartment is located in one of the best complexes in the area 'La Aldea de Puerto Rey'. The apartment consists of two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, a bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a living-dining room, a balcony and a solarium roof terrace. The Aldea complex has two wonderful swimming pools set in lush well-maintained gardens amongst palm trees.
Puerto Rey is part of Vera Playa and is only 400 meters from the beach and there are plenty of bars, restaurants, supermarkets, a water park, a chemist and other shops within walking distance. You can walk to Garrucha along the beach or cycle on the road or the special beach cycle track open in busy months.
July and August are the busiest months when some home owners in the area decide to rent out their properties for a very decent income. However, both Vera Playa, Vera Town, Garrucha and all the surrounding towns are lived in by Spanish, British and other nationalities all year round.
