The Murcia region
Murcia is becoming a popular holiday destination, but it remains relatively ,unike the other more overcrowded areas of the Spanish Mediterranean coast. This region is easily accessible via Alicante airport and Murcia San Javier airport .
Murcia receives the most sunshine hours in Spain. This area gives you the opportunity to explore the unspoilt countryside of inland Spain.It is an area full of contrasts, offering huge plains, dramatic mountain ranges pictureque valleys and medieaval villages and towns to explore, all of which offer many opportunities to enjoy a variety of holiday activities.The region is ideal for relaxation,exploring historical sites , sporting activities and savouring the local wine and cuisine. Murcia wine is of surprisingly high quality, this small region has three denominaciones de origen: Bullas, Jumilla, and Yecla.If you want to visit the coast for the day the nearest beach is approximately an hour away.There is also a water park at Murcia approximately 45 minutes drive away.
Caravaca De La Cruz
This region of Spain lends itself to many varied activities. The villa is located amid glorious country side with stunning views ,situated on the edge of a village, quiet and tranquil, yet 10 minutes drive from the bustling historic and religious town of Caravaca del la Cruz with it's wide variety of shops, bars , restaurants and places of historical interest.. There is a bar and shop 10 minutes walk away which can provide most of your every day holiday shopping needs .
Shape your holidays to your own needs,relax by your own private pool surrounded by the stunning and varied scenery or visit the beaches of the Costa Calida or the quieter less commecial beaches such as San Juan los Terreros all approximately one to one and a half hours drive away.Alternately visit one of the local medieval and historical sites .
The local towns all have weekly markets to purchase local produce and your holiday bargains '
Explore the local area walking or cycling or go up in the hills and mountains on a quad bike using a local guide to explore areas unexcessible by cars.
Caravaca del la Cruz is approximately 10 minutes car drive from the villa . The Iberians, Romans and Muslims all passed through this town,leaving evidence of their presence in the architecture of the town .The town has developed around its Castle, built in the 15th century by the Knights Templar. However, Caravaca is essentially known as the holy city of the cross that carries its name. It is one of the 7 holy cities of the world which includes Rome and Jerusalem.It has a Jubilee Year every 7 years.The last jubilee year was in 2010.
It is well known for its fiestas, the most famous of which takes place the first week in May, when horses dressed in elaborate colourful ,costumes are raced through the old town .It has a weekly local market selling local produce.It is worth exploring the old town walking up the winding streets to the sanctuaria which dominates the town. For those with less stamina take the mini train which takes you up from the town square.
Sample the local wines and local crusine ,there are a large variety on offer .A good ,inexpensive way to sample local food is to have a "menu del dia" meal of the day, usually on offer at midday at most restaurants,it often includes wine and coffee
