A choice of 3 terraces overlooking spectacular views where families and holiday makers can enjoy relaxing, sunbathing and eating Al fresco. Children are spoilt for choice with the nearby communal pools and playgrounds. The resort offers a lovely Town Centre with various activities for the whole family
The atmosphere is very Spanish and changes with the seasons, the gentle burbling noises of the birds, frogs, crickets, fishes leaping in the lake, the golf clubs striking golf balls and the banter of golfers as they make their way round the course.

The Murcia region
With over 300 sunny days a year averaging 22 degrees Celsius Murcia is one of Spain's sunniest regions. The villa is situated between the Carrascoy Mountain Range near the City of Murcia and the beaches of Costa Calida or "warm coast" on the Mediterranean Sea. You can enjoy the clear waters and clean sands on the Mar Menor or "inland sea".
This area can offer a holiday for everyone. With a choice of fantastic beaches, cultural cities and monuments, shopping, golf, water sports, cycling, tennis, markets, horse riding, eating out or eating in, exploring the local country side or just taking time to relax. It’s your holiday – you choose.
Murcia is a cosmopolitan city and one of our favourites, with its large shopping centres, markets and department stores - excellent for those who love to shop!
This city has a long history shown by its many examples of architecture and idyllic squares, streets, bridges and river walks. The Moors, Romans and Christians have all had a part to play in this city's history. It boasts some of the finest cinemas, theatres, museums, concerts, art galleries & exhibitions. Murcia is a wonderful setting to discover the many bars and restaurants hidden in idyllic squares where you can sit and pass the time of day whilst enjoying the fabulous Murcian cuisine in the centre of a real Spanish city.
The port of Cartagena is well worth a visit with its narrow winding streets housing shops, cafes and restaurants. The harbour offers a beautiful place to sit and relax in the port area in one of the many bars and restaurants, however it is well worth the more adventurous following the coast line to find those little cafes and restaurants hidden from the main tourist route.
The children really enjoy the water park (Terra Aqua Murcia) and animal park (Terra Natura Murcia) in Murscia, just 15 minutes drive away, or the beaches. The Mar Menor is very calm and 5 degrees warmer than the Mediterrranean , it is absolutly fantastic for small children and a great place to experience the Spanish way of life. If you would like to enjoy beaches with a bit more wave and excitement it is worth travelling up the coast, where the waves can be quite fierce.
Walking and mountain biking is a must for those who wish to explore the El Valle Natural Park and Carrascoy Mountains.
For those wishing to travel further afield, two of our favourite places are approximately two hours drive north to the Fonts Agua in Calossa and Guadalest. The water falls are not only beautiful but a great place to cool down and for the brave there is a diving board into one of the main pools or swim through the rocks to sit under the main flow. A definite must for those who want to experience the vibrance of the fresh water and those who want to watch. We tend to drive straight to GUADALEST which is an amazing hillside town, experience spectacular views, enjoy the cafes, shopping and sightseeing. A fantastic day out.
There is a whole heap of other exiting things to do and visit - we have made up a folder in the villa for you to refer to - remember if you want an active holiday look at it early in your holiday - if you prefer to look up the local restaurants and relax around the villa and resort then that's okay too.

The house is well equipped and well cared for. The wi-fi was a welcome bonus! The windows took some working out, but there was all the help we needed in the information provided by the owner. There are a variety of restaurants in the vicinity serving a range of international cuisines, and at very reasonable prices. We were there late September/early October so the resort was blissfully quiet. Just what the doctor ordered!

We have stayed several times at La Torre, in villas and in apartments, this was our first time in a townhouse as our children are now teenagers so having the pool in sight is no longer an issue. This particular house was a 3 minute walk from the nearest pool which was ideal. I particularly liked the open plan kitchen instead of the usual seperate kitchen, as this was more social. The house was very clean and well equipped. The free WiFi was greatly appreciated by my teenagers. I would definitely choose this property again.
All communications with the owner were quick and efficient.

We have just returned from a fabulous 12 night family holiday at Casa de Mendes, La Torre.
The property has excellent facilities and is very well located overlooking the golf course, you can catch the sun from early morning until late into the evening on the terrace. The house is tastefully furnished and air conditioned which is very welcome at times as is the free wi-fi. The UK tv channels helped to keep the kids entertained when we took a break from the sun.
It is only a short walk to the nearest pool which we visited many times, there are many communal pools at La Torre and all are maintained to a very high standard. There is also tennis and golf on site but we were happy to simply chill out and enjoy the sun.
A hire car is advisable to get the most out of the location, we flew into Alicante which is an easy 1 hour drive away via good roads. This was our 2nd visit to La Torre and we would definately go back to Casa de Mendes for a relaxing holiday in the sun.
