The Murcia region
Life in south-eastern Spain has long been relished by those from abroad. It has a laid back healthy lifestyle, beautiful beaches, rich cuisine, fascinating history, mountainous landscapes, an abundance of activities, wonderful wine and let's not forget the wonderful weather.
One of the only drawbacks has been its popularity – large expatriate communities have grown on the Costa Blanca (Torrevieja and Benidorm to name a couple) and have pushed out some of the local Spanish culture and flair. While familiar company is many people's cup of tea, some of you are looking for a genuine Spanish life in Spain. And that is where Murcia comes in.
Despite having all of the Costa Blanca's attributes, Murcia has largely and mysteriously passed under the radar of most foreigners. This means living here gives you the chance to have a true taste of Spain. Enjoy the food, learn to speak the language, explore mountain villages or simply float in Europe's largest (and perhaps most sublime) salt-water lagoon.
If a Spanish life of sun, sea and golf, with 315 days of sun a year sounds heavenly to you, try our place.
The coastline of Murcia is characterised by its sandy beaches. The most beautiful natural wonder on the coast is the Mar Menor. It is a shallow lagoon or pool, which is the largest of its kind in Spain. The water in the lagoon is very salty and maintains a hot temperature (5ºC above the average Mediterranean temperature). It has four openings or passages that lead to the sea.
From a tourist point of view, Spain and Murcia itself offer you a huge amount of interesting places to visit as the history of the city goes back to the years 800 where it was originally founded as part of Cordoba. Certainly amongst the famous visiting points for any traveller is the Cathedral de Santa Maria. Finished in the 15th century the cathedral is the most impressive monument of Murcia.
The city is divided by the Segura River and is known for its beautiful Baroque Cathedral, Almudi Palace and the castle of Monteagudo (where the Arab influence can be well appreciated), a fortress from the 11th c., the Market de Veronicas, the Malecon Garden, the University of Murcia and the Museum Ramon Gaya.
Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resort
1 km from the town of Sucina. There is a good mix of traditional Spanish shops and restaurants with an English supermarket. Bodega serves the best steaks ever and Emma's cafe dishes are really high class cuisine.
Just 15 minutes, by car, from the beaches, marina and sea front attractions of Santigo de la Ribera or Los Alcázares.
Lo Pagan with its natural mud baths, windmills and beaches is worth a visit.
Don't forget the mediterranian beaches, just north of the MarMenor. They are vast stretches of golden sand with few people on them, mostly Spanish at the weekends. There's even a nudist beach, if you fancy!
The Hacienda's challenging course forms part of the Orillas del Mar Menor , and is located in a beautiful, unspoilt area bordering a protected national park. The resort is well connected to the main highway that links the city of Murcia and the coastline of the Mar Menor and the airport of San Javier.
The golf resort next door has an excellent bar and restaurant and is welcoming to Hacienda visitors. They run horse riding excursions as well.
