Holiday accommodation in Las Negras

The beach at Las Negras - late October

For those who would like to be in the heart of the village close to the beach we will soon be able to book for you a selection of village apartments. The apartments will be in different small buildings and locations but all will have their own terrace with sea views, living area, kitchen, bathroom and 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms. Prices will depend on the number of bedrooms required. In order to keep costs down apartments cannot be individually booked but will be allocated on arrival. Apart from the small reservation deposit payment will also be on arrival. As soon as we have more details and all the prices we will publicise them. In the meantime please contact if you are interested.

Las Negras this morning

The photo above was taken this morning when we took a walk along the cliff path towards San Pedro. It gives a good impression of the layout of the village.

Ruin near San Pedro

We continued along the path for half an hour and then cut inland to make a circular walk  back. Agave , palms, fig trees and farmhouses in ruins are symbolic of Almeria.

Chumbo tree

Along the way we came across this unusual chumbo. This variety has smaller, darker fruit than the common chumbo and looked more like a tree than a cactus.

The rambla

The morning cloud soon cleared and we returned to Las Negras along the rambla – a pleasant 75 minute walk in the Autumn sunshine.

Cottage at Maria's Farm

We have already mentioned that we have negotiated a good price for renting the holiday cottages at Maria’s Farm in Las Negras –


About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
