The Murcia region
With over 300 sunny days a year averaging 22 degrees celcius Murcia is one of Spain's sunniest regions. The villa is situated between the Carrascoy Mountain Range near the City of Murcia and the beaches of Costa Calida or "warm coast" on the Mediterranean Sea. You can enjoy the clear waters and clean sands on the Mar Menor or "inland sea".
This area can offer a holiday for everyone. With a choice of fantastic beaches, cultural cities and monuments, shopping, golf, water sports, cycling, tennis, paddle tennis(pádel' in Spanish), markets, horse riding, eating out or eating in, exploring the local country side or just taking time to relax. It’s your holiday – you choose.
Murcia is a cosmopolitan city and one of our favourites, with its large shopping centres, markets and department stores - excellent for those who love to shop!
This city has a long history shown by its many examples of architecture and idyllic squares, streets, bridges and river walks. The Moors, Romans and Christians have all had a part to play in this city's history. It boasts some of the finest cinemas, theatres, museums, concerts, art galleries & exhibitions. Murcia is a wonderful setting to discover the many bars and restaurants hidden in idyllic squares where you can sit and pass the time of day whilst enjoying the fabulous Murcian cuisine in the centre of a real Spanish city.
The port of Cartagena is well worth a visit with its narrow winding streets housing shops, cafes and restaurants. The harbour offers a beautiful place to sit and relax in the port area in one of the many bars and restaurants, however it is well worth the more adventurous following the coast line to find those little cafes and restaurants hidden from the main tourist route.
The children really enjoy the water park (Terra Aqua Murcia) and animal park (Terra Natura Murcia) in Murcia, just 15 minutes drive away, or the beaches. The Mar Menor is very calm and 5 degrees warmer than the Mediterrranean , it is absolutly fantastic for small children and a great place to experience the Spanish way of life. If you would like to enjoy beaches with a bit more wave and excitement it is worth travelling up the coast, where the waves can be quite fierce.
Walking and mountain biking is a must for those who wish to explore the El Valle Natural Park and Carrascoy Mountains.
For those wishing to travel further afield, two of our favourite places are approximately two hours drive north to the Fonts Agua in Calossa and Guadalest. The water falls are not only beautiful but a great place to cool down and for the brave there is a diving board into one of the main pools or swim through the rocks to sit under the main flow. A definite must for those who want to experience the vibrance of the fresh water and those who want to watch. We tend to drive straight to GUADALEST which is an amazing hillside town, experience spectacular views, enjoy the cafes, shopping and sightseeing. A fantastic day out.
There is a whole heap of other exciting things to do and visit - we have made up a folder in the villa for you to refer to - remember if you want an active holiday look at it early in your holiday - if you prefer to look up the local restaurants and relax around the villa and resort then that's okay too.
El Valle Golf Resort
As guests of the Casa de Mendes Villas you are entitled to play golf on all the Polaris World courses. The El Valle Course is a short walk from the villa but the other courses can be accessed by car or by using the complimentary bus which picks passengers up from the Clubhouse. Other world class golf courses are available in the locality.The Resort offers:
Superb 18 hole Jack Nicklaus Golf Course
Golf Pro Shop
Tennis and Paddle Tennis(pádel' in Spanish) Courts
Children's Play Areas
Supermarket- well stocked
Large communal pools
The Local area can offer a huge range of activities and places of interest, depending on how far you are prepared to travel. We have summarised our favourites in a folder in the villa for your perusal.
FESTIVALS IN THE MURCIAN REGION
Murcia Spring Festival
when: April (annual)
The spring celebrations blossom in Murcia very soon after Easter. The city is awash with colour and sounds as thousands of locals, dressed in embroidered regional costume, partake in the parades and parties of the Murcia Spring Festival.
Look out for the Bando de la Huerta on the Tuesday, when a grand procession of music groups, dance troupes and giant costumed characters winds through the streets. The parade's highlight has to be the travelling food carts - gather round as typical Murcian goodies of blood sausage, fruit, vegetables and wine are distributed among the crowds.
The following Saturday sees the bizarre burial of the sardine, where locals mourn the end of the carnival celebrations. Murcia's version of this nationwide custom involves an elaborate parade with a huge paper sardine and colourful floats, which distribute toys into the crowd. When the fish arrives at the Puente Viejo (Old Bridge), it is set on fire and a huge fireworks display marks the end of the festival.
Carthaginians & Romans Festival
when: September (annually)
The Murcian city of Cartagena presents the ten-day Carthaginians & Romans Festival. The event remembers the city's rich history with battle re-enactments, marches, a wedding, a circus and fireworks.
The festival traditionally opens with the lighting of a sacred fire and the inauguration of the Festival Camp beside the Estadio Municipal. On the final day, the fire is extinguished and a big fireworks display takes place.
Website: Carthaginians and Romans Festival Website
Festival of the Holy Cross
when: May (annually)
where: Caravaca de la Cruz
Caravaca de la Cruz celebrates the Festival of the Holy Cross with the town's infamous race of the "Wine Horses" (caballos de vino). Riderless horses, wearing beautifully embroidered coats, race from the bottom of the town up to the castle.
The horse race takes place on the second day of the five-day fiesta. The caballos are led by a porter on each side, who must run as fast as their legs can carry them, while people line the route and cheer on the competitors. The only wine you are likely to come across, just in case you were wondering, is at Mass earlier in the day.
The tradition dates back to around 1250, when templar knights raced across territory ruled by the Moors to bring wine to those that guarded the relic of the True Cross (Vera Cruz), kept there since 1231.
During the rest of the five-day festival, locals celebrate at special church services, processions and historical re-enactments of the Moors and Christians throughout the town.

"Five star all the way"
What can we say, from the moment you start communicating with Lionel and Nicole you know this is a couple who care about your holiday. Lots of useful information and no question is ever to much troubl… More
Thank you for these kind and honest words.
We aim to ensure that your holiday in our Luxury Villa is enjoyable, memorable and relaxing with the intention that you will want to come back again and again.
Our aim is to provide everyone with sufficient information on the villa, the resort, travel facilities and local attractions with the view to making you enjoy the various activities in the area. We find communication with our guests very enjoyable and it always proves helpful to share holiday experiences and discoveries.
We also find hiring a car is very easy and economical and extremely useful to get about locally and makes the most out of the holiday.
We have had many comments from guests of feeling very safe in the resort, with the villa being well equipped to give you a great holiday.
The ultimate compliment is when your 10 and 13 year year old start planning to come back to the villa for their next holiday. You will all be very welcome to return anytime.

"A beautiful "home from home" villa!"
We recently stayed at this villa and had a wonderful family holiday. Travelling from Murcia airport to El Valle Golf Resort was quick and easy (around 25 minutes) and once we were at the villa it felt… More
Your appreciation of the range of facilities that we have provided for in the Villa have been noted by many of our holidaymakers, and we are pleased that your young family made excellent use of the Villa and grounds.
Yes it is a very friendly rsort and we will feed back to the clubhouse on your comments. A car is extremely useful not just for getting to and from the airport but the many local sights that can be visited no matter what age group your party is.
Our aim is to be approachable and available 24/7 and we will always offer advice from when you book your holiday to well after your return home.
We as always look forward to our Holiday makers returning back to us as it shows that A Good Time Was Had By All.

"Beautiful, homely villa on a relaxing resort"
We've stayed in quite a few Spanish villas and this was by far the nicest. Both the living room and master bedroom have double height ceilings, which give the villa an incredible feeling of space… More
We are really pleased that the family enjoyed the villa and made great use of the pool and large garden area with various seating arrangements.
This Villa is on a a pupose built resort which is improving all the time and we are pleased you found the clubhouse restaurant excellent value.
We are now quite used to catering for families, couples and sporting groups and we appreciate your gratitude for what we assume is normal support and guidance that we give to all our holiday makers.
We look forward to you and your friends coming back.

"Excellent accommodation and a good base for exploring"
A lovely and relaxing week spent exploring the area and playing golf at this resort and at two others.Nice bedrooms and large living accommodation so even with 6 people it does not feel cramped. Good … More
This Luxury villa is very comfortable for 6 people, but we do try and accomadate for larger families and groups who have a limited budget.
Our Villa is a brilliant base for using the surrounding facilities of golfing, hiking, kayaking, wind surfing, numeous waterand beach sports, quad-biking, horse riding, shopping or just simply relaxing in the pool or the various garden areas privided within the villa grounds.
The pool is maintained all year round and is used mainly between March and October, however some brave holidaymakers have reported enjoying the pool in February and Novemeber.
Our aim is to always ensure that your booking is easy and hassle-free.

"Great villa for exploring the area"
Went to villa with 7 friends in May 2014. Slight squeeze for eight, six would be ideal. Outdoor furniture ample, with luxury sunbeds, large dining table and a further undercover area with wicker chair… More
We are really pleased that you all found our villa an excellent place for your vacation and made use of the variable activities avalable in the vicinity. Thank you for leaving the information on these activies for us to hand on to future holiday makers.
The Murcia region and the Mar Menor as you noted are renowned for the excellent weather, warmer waters and adventure and cultural activities.
This luxury villa with 3 large bedrooms, bathroom and shower room is very comfortable for 6 adults, but we are very happy to provide 2 additional beds if a group requests it. These additional beds are usually requested for 2 additional children.
We are pleased that you made use of the resort supermarket and restaraunt. We are disappointed you felt that the restaraunt food was OK as most past clients have found the food and surroundings excellent- we will feed this back to the Resort restaraunt.
We appreciate you confirming that booking your vacation with us was easy through Paypal and Holiday Letting and as you found, we were always willing to answer any queries and help out with planning your holiday and activities

We had 5 adults, 2 toddlers & 1 young child in our party. The villa was a lovely size and clean and well laid out. The children loved the swimming pool (although it was a little cold in May!) and the … More
We are thrilled that you found our Villa very suitable for your party of 8 and that the children made full use of the Private Swimming Pool and Large Garden.
We appreciate that the well equipped kitchen could do with a bit more storage, and so we had provided storage space in the large dining room and adjacent utility room.
The road-side walk to the Resort supermarket and Clubhouse restaurant is very scenic and safe with childrens play areas and communal pools on the way. However there is a shortcut, along the edge of the golf course, which holiday makers make use of outside golf times.
We are so glad that you found it so safe as this was the main reason for us buying this Luxury villa on this resort as the safety and security within the villa and resort was paramount for our children.
As recommended a car is useful for those who wish to travel, sightsee and explore the various activities and events around the Murcia and Mar Menor area. However, many of our holiday makers enjoy staying on site for a relaxing quiet holiday making use of the facilities in the villa and resort.

We endeavour to keep our Villa modern,clean and well equipped and are pleased that you made use of the additional 6 seater dining table under the pergola for alfresco dining.
The addion of the free Wi-Fi Internet has been a great asset to us and our holiday makers who have also made use of the other home-from-home provisions.
Thank you for acknowledging the excellent communication and assistance we gave you. It is always a pleasure to deal with our holidaymakers so as to ensure that you get the holiday that you are looking for.

"All you could want in a villa"
These photos, although good, do not do Casa de Mendes justice. The villa boasts an impressive entrance into a light and airy living room overlooking the pool, with plenty of outside space for dining and sunbathing. We made the most of the BBQ almost every evening. It was handy having the supermarket on site to keep the fridge topped up! A car is essential here if you're planning on getting out and about but it is equally just as fun to while away the hours here at Casa de Mendes. Thanks for a great week!
