The Murcia region
Costa Calida translates as the 'Warm Coast' and with over 300 sunny days in Murcia each year you can understand why. Murcia is also known as the 'garden of Spain' & for La Manga Club which was established near the Mar Menor salt-water lagoon in the 1970s. Recent years have seen a number of golf resorts built & to support the new developments there are brand new motorways but traffic is still low so getting about is easy.
There are a number of not-to-be-missed Spanish Festivals during the year. The old city of Murcia is 30 mins away with a Water Park, Zoo, Shops, Museums & Cathedral. The ancient city of Cartagena www.cartagenaturismo.es is 35 mins away with its Roman amphitheatre, Marina, Parks & Shops. Lorca is 30 mins away with its famous Castles (e.g. Fortress of the Sun). Closer are fishing villages/towns where you can walk the promenade or take a boat trip. Alternatively you can go walking or mountain biking in the mountains (e.g. Sierra Espuna National Park) or enjoy the numerous lovely unspoilt beaches.
Normal Temperatures in Murcia are 10 degrees centigrade higher than central England.
The Condado de Alhama / La Isla area
Condado de Alhama is a new golf resort set in a valley between the mountain nature reserves of Sierra Espuña and Carrascoy-El Valle, consisting of 3,500 properties on a 900 hectare (2,250 acre) site. See the official resort website at www.condadodealhama.eu and if you want to see the official video about the resort's annual August Medieval Festival there is this www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHwRwmf47t4 from 2012.The gated resort is situated midway between Alhama de Murcia and the coastal town of Mazarron, just off the new RM23/RM3 motorway and is about a 15 min drive from the resort entrance to beaches at Mazarron or 30 mins to the ancient city of Cartagena. La Isla was built in 2009 as the exclusive area of Condado and consists of 11 apartment blocks aligned in an oval shape on a made-man island totalling 396 apartments (36 apartments on each block) - ours is one of a small number of extra-large apartments on La Isla. La Isla also has its own 24 hour manned security entrance over a moat and a 5 min walk away is the resort supermarket and restaurants and bars. It's a 45 min drive to La Isla from the Murcia airport at San Javier or 1.25 hours from Alicante. Murcia airport is due to move from San Javier to Corvera in 2013/14 which will cut transfer time in half (down to just 20 mins) from the airport to Condado.
