The Costa Calida region

The Costa Calida is Spanish for warm coast with 3000 hours of sunshine per year. The average annual temperature is 17 degrees. The winter is very mild and sunny and the summer is very hot.

The beaches are fantastic, long sandy Mediterranean beaches, little rocky coves and the beaches on the Mar Menor are safe, the water is shallow, tranquil and warm, ideal for paddling and building sandcastles! The area is great for water sports - windsurfing, sailing, pedalos, water skiing, kite surfing, fishing, etc. There are many diving schools, wrecks to discover and colourful fish to see. Great snorkelling.

The area is very good for cycling and walking with many routes available for a day out.

Lots of new golf courses within 20 minutes drive. La Manga Club 7 minutes

For bird watchers at least 63 types of birds near the property. With lovely views from the balcony right across the protected Salinas de Marchemelo. A must for bird watchers!

La Manga Del Mar Menor

The Mar Menor is a few minutes walk from the front of the house - a salt water lagoon beside the Mediterranean sea. There are numerous beaches with crystal clear shallow waters with a maximum depth of 7 metres. The biggest salt lake in Europe!

Playa Paraiso is a safe sandy beach with 3 beach bars open in the Summer. A new sports centre has opened just opposite Zafiro with tennis courts, padel tennis and football. There is a cafe bar selling coffee and cakes, fresh bread, ice creams and cheap beer. There are quite a few loca lbars/ restaurants within walking distance of the house and many more to visit in the local harbour at Cabo de Palos and the La Manga Strip.

We know the Mar Menor and La Manga well from years spent in Spain, but had never actually stayed there. Turquesa became a real home for 4 weeks, and with owners Chris and Beryl just a couple of hundred metres away in their other house, our every needs were catered to. The house was very well kitted out and faced towards the Mar Menor and the sunrise, and was only a couple of minutes walk to the beach. Great location, great property and great hosts/neighbours. What else could holidaymakers ask for? Oh yes, great weather. Well, we got that too! As proof of our enjoyment, we're going back there next year.

Thank you.

You are welcome back anytime to either of our houses.

I look forward to reading your book; I have two ahead of it at the moment but all things being equal I hope to have read it before August.

Warmest regards

"Accommodation superb"

We arrived and met the owners Chris and Beryl who were extremely helpful and were available during the week to answer queries re local taxis, restaurants etc. Accommodation was very clean and well equipped. The views of the sea from the upper terrace were stunning. We would not hesitate to recommend to friends.

"Home from Home"

Our stay in Zafiro was brilliant. You are just across the road from the beach & lots of walks or cycle paths. The supermarket is just 5 minutes away by car & there are several restaurants within close walking distance, or you can walk further along the beach to a couple of restaurants right on the beach. For the slightly more energetic there are more restaurants on The La Manga Strip or get an easily available cheap taxi. The House itself is prettily furnished in a spanish style & has your every need catered for with all the cooking facilities at hand if you want to use them & lovely seats outside etc. We would highly recommend a visit. We have also visited Turquesa there other property-just as lovely.
