Nestled in the Sierra de Estancia in the Los Velez area of Almeria Province in Andalucia, Casa Joya is an old farmhouse that was lovingly restored and is family run by James & Mary Rice since 2004. Located in an old farmhouse, completely updated and remodeled, the guest-house sits on 8.5 hectares of almond groves. Our Guest house is set up for those who want to enjoy the common areas as well as those who want nothing more than to cozy up in their rooms, and not leave. That is the comfort and privacy we offer too. However, many times, couples, group of friends or you alone might want that much needed getaway comfortably, in places outside of just their guest rooms.
