Casa Pedro Barrera

Caravaca de la Cruz, Murcia
Bed & Breakfast

Lovely countryside surrounds this peaceful old house, with its pool, great walking and riding – and all the vineyards of Murcia to visit


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


It’s a fabulous drive through agricultural country to this whitewashed old house on a small rise with wide views over its hectares of olives, pine and almond trees. Comfortable bedrooms have beams, polished wooden floors and good bathrooms. Almendro has French doors to a private garden. Olivio is the largest with treen artwork, attributed to Pedro Barrera, the legendary bullfighter after whom the house is named. Breakfast is excellent value, a fine spread of ham, cheese and home made jams (or a full English, if you fancy it) – eat outside, surveying the neat and pleasant garden, or in the handsome dining room with its old church settle and handmade Valentin tiles. Relax on a floral sofa in the sitting room with its games, TV and a wood-burner, or around the pool with its loungers; enjoy homemade tapas and drinks in the evening. This is great riding, walking and golfing country, there are Roman ruins and cave paintings nearby and it’s only 15km to Caravaca, the fifth holiest city in the world.

Martyn and Denise are simply extraordinary hosts who will do everything to make your stay comfortable. They prepared a special vegetarian menu for me with a choice of 4 starters, mains and desert each - now that in rural Spain is a proper luxury! The meals were scrumptious - home grown olives marinated by Denise in their own olive oil, figs from the garden, home made peach jam, and the rest. The house is beautifully restored, the pool cool, rooms comfortable - really all good. Basically, if there is anything you need, Martyn and Denise will do it without even batting an eyelid.

Sawdays has done it again. What a great listing. Excellent place, great food and wine, luxurious accommodation and very nice hosts, very friendly and helpful. Set in the coutryside, very peaceful, nice views and a great swimming pool that is chlorine free If you are in the area you should stay or if you can stay when travelling through to somewhere else you are in for a treat.

Local points of interest from Denise & Martyn Drake

  • Ideal place to relax and recharge the batteries.
  • Outdoor pool great May to October.
  • Caravaca de la Cruz is an undiscovered Spanish town with lots of interesting things to do.
  • Caravaca de la Cruz is the fifth holiest city in Christendom. There is a piece of Jesus's cross in the Sanctuary of Caravaca.
  • The fiestas in May (1st to 5th) are amazing - a unique fiesta involving the racing of the Wine Horses of Caravaca (1st-2nd May) and then the Moors and Christians (3rd-5th May).
  • There are miles of lovely countryside to walk and explore amongst the fields of vegetables and fruit and almond orchards.
