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 unobstructed 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 just opened further down the street with tennis, padel tennis, football and a cafe/bar selling coffee and cakes, ice creams, fresh bread and cheap beer. There are quite a few local restaurantsand bars within walking distance of the house and many more to visit in the local harbour at Cabo de Palos and the La Manga Strip.
There is a new sports centre in Playa Paraiso offering football, tennis, paddle tennis, windsurfing, paragliding and relaxation and tai chi courses.
Cartagena is a Roman City worth a visit and Murcia is a very cultural city.

"Ideal for a family holiday"
We stayed at Turquesa in early October 2013. The weather was still very hot so all the beach/pool facilities were fully usable although most of the local holiday attractions in the vicinity had already shut down for the season. The villa is very well equipped for a family holiday with everything you could think of catered for including UK TV, WiFi and A/C. The villa was also in very good condition, clean and well laid out. The meet-and-greet arrangements also worked out fine. You'll need a car to get around as shopping, restaurants and the La Manga strip are spread out a bit although there were a couple of English bars about 10 mins walk away. If you're searching for authentic Spain then take a trip to Cartagena or Murcia. We got to the former using a neat train from just a little further along the Mar Menor coast straight into Cartagena so no concerns about traffic or parking. Corresponding with the owners Chris and Beryl was very easy and friendly. All-in-all a good vacation choice for families with kids.

"We had a fantastic week at Tuquesa"
We loved the location of Turquesa. There are lovely beaches on the Mar Menor as well as beaches on La Manga strip. Our favourite beaches were in the national park. We reached all the beaches on the bikes supplied. We were able to do snorkelling, and kayaking and I even had a sailing lesson. We found everything we needed in Turquesa including the use of the Wi Fi which was useful when French air traffic controllers went on strike causing our return flight to be cancelled.

"Brilliant - Turquesa"
Lovely appartment in nice and quiet surroundings.
Very local, not very many of the local people speak english or other language - that is also in shops, restaurants etc.
Recommended for those who want a quiet vacation. If looking for the nightlife with Bars, Disco and Restaurants you need go to La Manga or Cabo de Palos which is 10-15 minutes by car.

"Everything you'd want!"
Lovely location within a five minute walk to the mar menor and a one minute walk to the local sports centre. The sports centre has a wonderful location & is open until 11.30pm meaning that you can play tennis etc when the weather cools, for only 4,50€. The staff are all very friendly and make the best sangria around. The pool is lovely out the back, with lots of room and not over crowded. The villa itself is a nice size, and definitely would come again. Chris and his wife are absolutely lovely hosts and couldn't do enough for us. With brilliant hosts, weather and location, I'd definitely come again!

"Home from Home"
Lovely terraced villa, clean & well furnished ( inside & out). All electricals provided, even a kettle! The villa faces onto the parking area of the Sports Centre with the Mar Menor (large salt water lagoon) to the rear of it, around a 5 min walk. The area is mainly holidayed in by the Spanish, very friendly. We felt very safe & it was very clean. The beaches are cleaned every night. I would recommend that you hire a car to get the best of the area ( the Med is around an 50 min walk). Weather was fantastic, very hot.

"A fantastic holiday in a great family friendly location"
The standard of accommodation offered is outstanding, a true home from home.
We travelled with our 2 young children and the property contained everything we could have wished for.
The house is located within only a few minutes walk of the mar menor. The mar menor is warm, shallow and calm and was therefore extremely safe for the children who LOVED it!
We hired a car for the week which allowed us easy access to supermarkets, the stunning la manga club and countless beaches. However, for anyone not planning on hiring a car there is plenty to do all within walking distance.
The Booking process was a breeze and Chris and beryl were extremely friendly and helpful. We will certainly be looking to book again soon.

"Beautiful stay in excellent accommodation."
Excellent place for a family holiday, very relaxing area with lots to do. Great sites to see at other nearby towns with history, markets and good restaurants. The beach is fab and perfect for small children. I fully recommend the accommodation and Christ and beryl who operate the rentals are the nicest people that you could wish to meet. We have been twice and intend on going back as often as we can.
