The Murcia region
Welcome to Murcia - rugged mountains, rolling green field,s golden sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. Murcia enjoys a year-round average temperature of 20 degrees Celcius and is blessed with nearly 3000 hours of sunshine annually. The region is lapped by the waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the Mar Menor, a great saltwater lagoon with salt marshes, ecosystems, islands and unique flora and fauna.
The Mar Menor is Europe's largest lagoon and is easy to explore, with several villages and towns dotted around its coast. This inland sea is contained by a narrow strip of land (known as "La Manga") which separates it from the Mediterranean Sea. the lagoon is open to the Mediterranean at its tip, but due to it being only 7m deep at its deepest point, it is much warmer than the Mediterranean. In summer, a dip in the Mar Menor can be as warm as a warm bath! The lagoon is ideal for all kinds of water sports and its warm, shallow water makes it an ideal place for all the family.
The Mar Menor is surrounded by the resort villages and towns of Lo Pagan and Santiago de la Ribera. These two towns have beautiful beaches and there is a 4km promenade linking the two resorts. Next is Los Alcazares, the largest of the resort towns with extensive beaches of over 4km, again backed by a beautiful flat promenade. The smaller villages of Los Urrutias, Los Nietos, Mar de Cristal and Playa Honda are summertime resorts, all with good beaches and a small marina at each village.
The Costa Calida (Spanish for "warm coast") is the name given to the 155 miles of coastline in the Murcia region, stretching from the natural salt water lagoon of the Mar Menor in the east to the fishing town of Aguilas in the west, both offering sparkling clear waters, luxuriously long sandy beaches and enchanting bays. With so many blue flag beaches just 15 minutes drive from the apartment, there's no option but to relax and enjoy.

"What a holiday!"
Myself, my husband and 3 children aged 8, 10 and 12 years old stayed here for 10 days in June 2012. We flew from Kerry airport to Alicante. The apartment is fabulous, neat and clean and with plenty of room for the family. The wonderful heat on the balcony in the evening was beautiful for reading my book while watching the children at the pool below or having our dinner. The haciende it so well kept, the golf course is top class as my husband and sons will agree and the pool is very clean and inviting. The local village of Sucina is only a short drive away with lots of restaurants and a supermarket. The Mar Menor is about 20 mins drive. We went to a new beach every day, all beautiful and family friendly. The cities of Carthegena and Murcia offer lots of scenery, shopping and history. We were very well taken care of by Patsy and also Ricard. We enjoyed it so much that we have already booked to return in June 2013
