The Murcia region
The Murcia Region is a privileged land, a perfect example of quality of life in the Mediterranean. Its warm, mild temperatures (with an annual average of 21 C) and low rainfall make it an oasis of well-being in any season.?
The weather endows Murcia with a distinct flavour, making it a region full of life and colour, where springtime seems eternal.?A land where you and your family will be able to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year. Marcia's abundant clear and sunny days give the Region a highly distinctive, spectacular and warm Mediterranean light. The Murcia Region, a rendez-vous between two seas.
Outstanding beaches of soft sand, clean water and dazzling sunsets.?Known as the "Warm Coast", the Murcia Region shoreline runs just over 250 km and is shared by two seas: the Minor Sea (Mar Menor) and the Mediterranean. The landscape is peppered with breathtaking cliffs, heavenly secluded beaches of endless white sand, lively seaports and natural coves of crystal-clear waters.?
Many of these areas are part of the Region?s network of Protected Natural Lands. ?A noteworthy geographical feature is La Manga, a strip of coastline that encloses and separates the 170 km2 Minor Sea lagoon from the Mediterranean, connected only by channels or gorges. The Minor Sea's warm waters have always been renowned for their health benefits.?
Areas of ecological interest are also found, such as the San Pedro del Pinatar salt flats and the Calblanque Natural Park.?Reservoirs, rivers and two natural parks make the Murcia Region a clean and highly appealing area for tourism.?The inland areas of the Murcia Region offer a very rich heritage of natural landscapes and reserves. Dreamlike places that can be enjoyed by both those seeking peace and fresh air, as well as others who wish to supplement an intensive, active tourism offering with the respite of recreational areas.
Those looking to enjoy nature will find an activity that best matches their tastes: hiking trails, hill-climbing, on horseback or by foot.?We'd like to recommend two not-to-be-missed alternatives. They are the Sierra Espuna and El Valle Natural Parks, which all can enjoy, whether seeking activities or relaxation.
Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort
Designed on what is one of the most important haciendas in Murcia, the Polaris Resort of Hacienda Riquelme keeps in tact the majesty and charm of a place which is full of intrigue and history.
The rational behind the development such as the large avenues flanked by varied vegetation, the logical distribution of endless services and complete security services were all elements included within the design to fully encompass and respect the spirit of the original construction. Everything in Hacienda Riquelme has been designed for you to feel the romanticism of the past and enjoy the comforts of the future.
The whole complex at Hacienda Riquelme has been built around a splendid 18-hole golf course designed by the golf master himself, Jack Nicklaus. It has a total area of 1.353.041 m2 with a golf course, green areas, communal services and built land (made up of 1864 apartments), all within a fenced perimetre and observed by video cameras and controlled access to the resort.
The town centre at Hacienda Riquelme is the focal point of the golf resort. Built around a stunning lake, this resort is an authentic and traditional town where you will have to hand all of the comforts and facilities you could ever need.
This Resort is designed for the ultimate experience of freedom and nature, one that provides an incomparable feeling of well-being generated by the rational layout of its flanked avenues, its perfectly incorporated plant life, and its low construction density. It all comes together around a late 19th Century, colonial-style country house.
It was the home of the Riquelme Family, descendants of Guillen Riquelme, a noble knight who accompanied King Alfonso X the Learned on his conquest of Murcia. It has been restored to preserve the country house tradition of the Murcia of yore, and to maintain the balance between the romanticism of the past and the modernism of the future.
The house has been recreated as it existed in those times, with gardens of the area's native plants, which intertwine with the rays of sunlight that shine over this wonderful land of Murcia. The development project was carried out by EDSA and F&M Arquitectos, firms that leave their hallmark in each of the Resort's details.
THE GOLF COURSE
This Resort is structured around a magnificent, 18 holes, par 72 golf course by Nicklaus Design. This course is different from the others in the Nicklaus Golf Trail, a group of six golf courses that make up Europe's best golf offering. Ample fairways are combined with hard to approach greens, and bunkers ready to complicate your game. And all of it surrounded by wild flowers, olive trees and large lakes. A fun course that will bring the best shots out of every player.
GOLF COURSE SERVICES
Changing room with towel service, Caddie Master: Manual trolleys, Electric trolleys, Electric buggies, Economical and top of the range golf clubs, Lockers for golf clubs and changing room lockers (members only),
Practice facilities: Natural grass driving range with 20 bays, Putting and chipping green, Practice bunker, Practice ball dispensing machines.
Life at Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort is full of conveniences to make your day-to-day activities much easier. It features a supermarket with home delivery services, 24-hour security, cafe/bar, 18 hole golf course, outdoor Sports complex, and outdoor swimming pools.
The redevelopment of the Hacienda should be completed June 2010 giving further restaurants and bars.
