The Costa Calida region
Los Nietos is a tiny fishing village in rural South Eastern Spain, on the beautiful Mar Menor, a huge inland lagoon which is warm and safe for children and well known for its sailing regattas.
The weather in this region is glorious most of the year round. February is probably the wettest month but from March to October it is sunny and warm, August being the hottest month.
Sara and her family have been out in December and been on the beach in t-shirt and shorts. Although it can be chilly sometimes too!!!!
The La Manga Del Mar Menor / Los Nietos area
A 10 minute drive inland takes you to the world renowned La Manga Club with its superb golf courses, tennis clubs, large swimming pool, high class shops and restaurants. You don't need to be a member to enjoy the facilities.
And 15 minutes away is the lovely scenic fishing port of Cabo de Palos with excellent fish restaurants.
Cabo de Palos is at the start of the La Manga Strip with miles upon miles upon miles of glorious beaches - on one side the Mar Menor and on the other the Mediterranean. It takes half an hour to drive to the end of the strip!
The city of Cartagena is about 20 minutes away, a city of culture, fine shopping and restaurants.
There are daily markets selling lots of wonderful locally grown fruit and veg, as well as clothing, sunglasses, bags, shoes etc. These markets are held at different towns and villages daily. The largest one is at Pabo do Cabo on Sunday mornings.
We have two scrapbooks in the house. One lists local restaurants and places to eat, the other is full of information about where to go and what to do. It also contains details of all the markets.

Casa Sara was an amazing place to stay, really clean, and spacious inside. I went with 2 friends and we really enjoyed ourselves. We spent most of our time on the sun terrace and the roof which are really nice to sit and relax through out the day! The roof has a BBQ which was really good and has lovely views.
It is just minutes from the bars, restaurants and beach which was ideal for us. As we stayed in April we weren't sure about the weather but it was gorgeous for our whole stay and I would recommend going in April for a nice break.
Also the locals were very friendly and welcoming and couldn't be more helpful.
Would definitely go back!!!

Had an absolutely amazing stay here. The house is lovely and spacious with everything you need and more. Neighbours are very friendly and keen to involve you in the community. Very short walk to the bars and beach, El Fraile, an English run bar in Los Nietos is a lot of fun. Overall we had an amazing time here, I am 20 and I was with two friends but there is definitely something for everyone to do here!
