An authentic Spanish village, in existence since the times of the Moors and nestling in the foothills of the Cabrera mountains, approximately 15km inland from the coastal resorts of Mojacar and Garrucha. Bedar sits astride a pretty hillside setting, in a quiet and calm atmosphere, and still retains many of the original cottages which line the narrow streets and little alleyways. The area enjoyed years of prosperity for its lead mining and many of the old buildings still exist. All everyday needs are catered for, including a post office, chemist, doctors surgery and a small supermarket. There are several good restaurants/bars offering a variety of cuisine so no need to go far to enjoy the ambience of this lovely village, but at the same time providing an ideal base from which to explore this little known area of Spain.
