The Murcia region
THE COSTA CALIDA:
The Costa Calida extends along 250 kilometres (155 miles), this stretch of the Murcian coastline is blessed with 315 days of sunshine a year and an average temperature of 17 degrees centigrade (63ºF).
All the usual sports and leisure facilities are available, and more, including the soothing mud baths at Lo Pagan, renown to relieve the aches and pains of arthritis and rheumatism. In addition, there is the exquisite Mediterranean cuisine that combines fish and seafood with fresh garden produce, providing a healthy balanced diet. All-in- all the Costa Calida is one of the healthiest places in the world, according to WHO, (The Worlds Health Organization). The area is shared between two seas:
Los Alcazares is located next to the shores of the Mar Menor, it offers seven kilometres of coastline from Los Narejos to Punta Brava and dedicates a large part of its economic activity to the industry of services and tourism. All these beaches are connected by means of a magnificent promenaded. These are fully equipped with showers, fountains, ways and paths for the handicapped, and also cater for games and sports.
The Mar Menor is a salt-water lagoon of 128km sq with a sea temperature of 5 degrees above the Mediterranean. It is quite unknown to a lot of people and probably "Spains best kept secret". The area enjoys an average of 320 days sunshine a year. The mineral-rich water of the Mar Menor is revered for its health-giving properties and is listed by the World Health Organisation as one of the healthiest places on earth. The town still has thermal baths, which have existed since Roman times. The bay is famous for visitors with rheumatic, arthritic and skin problems, at one part of the beach there is a natural mud bath and so it offers therapeutic results in comparison to the Black Sea.
The Mar Menor apart from being the biggest open air health spa in the world, is also considered as one of the best areas for regatta and certain water sports which can be practised all year round.
It also offers countless possibilities for wind-surfers and every kind of sailor. There is very little movement and hardly any waves. There are several diving, sailing and canoe training schools where one can learn the technique of the sports and lots of opportunity to practice newly acquired skills.
Haunt of the Royals - Roda is located in the municipality of San Javier and is situated just a few minutes drive from the beautiful beaches of the Mar Menor lying inland between San Pedro del Pinatar and Los Alcázares in the region of Murcia.
This is an agricultural area particularly specialising in the growing of horticultural produce and citrus fruits. Roda is set apart from mass tourism which enables life still to be lived in a traditional way as well as being steeped in history.
In 1265 King Jamie 1 of Aragon, at the request of his son-in-law Alfonso X, re-conquered the kingdom of Murcia. One of his noblemen at that time was Count Guillen of Roda from Roda-de-Isabena in Huesca. The King, out of gratitude for his support and the need to repopulate and defend the land, granted Count Guillen an estate of over two thousand hectares.
In the current stately home and estate, dating from the 18th Century, one can still see the former 15th Century fortress and some preserved walls and pavements.
For centuries the estate has stayed within the Roda family and retained its close links with the Spanish monarchy even today; King Juan Carlos and Prince Felipe have both been distinguished guests.
Los Alcazares name comes from Arabic word ´Al Kazar´, which means ´palace´ or ´house of nobles´, buildings that were constructed by the Arabs for their holidays and relaxation in this place. Furthermore, the Moors discovered the excellent properties of the water of the Mar Menor, which they enjoyed in the ancient Roman baths that were located there and which they reused. With the Christian re-population, Los Alcázares became truly important as a port for fishing and trade, given its excellent strategic position.
Weather Overview for Los alcazares:
Los Alcazares, in the region of Murcia in the southeast of Spain, has a semi-arid Mediterranean climate, enjoyingextended hot summers and mild winters with long hours of sunshine and very low rainfall all year round. The town sits on the coast of Mar Menor, a saltwater lagoon. Mar Menor is separated from the Mediterranean Sea by La Manga, a 22 km strip of natural land, ensuring that the lagoon's shallow waters are always about 4°C warmer than the sea. Murcia's coast is the Costa Calida, which means 'warm coast'.
Summer, from June till September, is hot and sunny: perfect for lying on the beach of Mar Menor's calm shore. The average high temperature is around the mid 20s at the beginning and end of the season, rising into the high 20s in June and August. It can sometimes get into the 30s but the balmy waters are always nearby for a refreshing swim. While the lagoon is not exactly cool, a dip will certainly take the edge off the heat. The humidity is usually just bearable, rainfall is laughably low and the sun stays out for ten or eleven hours a day. The waters of Mar Menor are kept calm by their shallow depth and separation from the sea. Combined with winds coming in from the sea, this creates perfect sailing and windsurfing conditions.
Autumn, in October and November, receives pleasant day time temperatures and cool nights. The average high temperature drops from 23°C to 18°C while the average low drops from 18°C to 14°C. Those wishing to avoid the summer highs will find that October is gorgeous: still warm enough for the beach but not too hot to think, with refreshing nights and a good seven hours of sunshine per day.
Winter, from December till February, is hardly cold with an average high of 16°C dropping to its lowest point in January at 14°C. Night time lows hover around 7°C and it very rarely gets down to freezing. Frosts are possible but as a rule, winter on the Costa Calida is very mild; the mildest in Spain!! The sun is less reliable, coming out for around six hours per day, as the sky can sometimes be overcast. This would be a good time for a walking holiday. Water sports on the lagoon are still possible but wetsuits are a must.
Spring, from March till May, gets hot fast. The average high temperature climbs from a pleasant 18°C to 23°C. Night time temperatures can remain low, but the days can sometimes get into the mid 20s as early as April. The temperature is a little unpredictable relying heavily on the sun which comes out for longer and longer towards the summer. At the beginning of the season the winter levels of six hours of sunshine per day are to be expected, creeping up to seven hours in April and jumping up to nine hours in May.
Los Alcazares, and the rest of Mar Menor's coast, benefits from a warm, dry microclimate, even more pleasant than the rest of coastal Spain. The mountains that rise up behind the coast prevent northerly weather fronts from bringing rain and clouds over to the area. The shallow bottom of the lagoon allows the water to be heated by the sun and La Manga protects it from cooler sea currents. This very warm body of water moderates temperatures on shore. Other resorts on Mar Menor include the imaginatively named Mar Menor, Los Urrutias and Estrella del Mar.
THE MAR MENOR: the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe
Southeast of the region you will find the beautiful Mar Menor (little sea), 170 square kilometers (66 square miles) in size, with shallow warm waters, with a temperature remaining year-round a little higher than the nearby Mediterranean. Gentle winds and excellent sports facilities, make it one of the best places to learn and practice all kinds of water sports. Scattered along the shores you will find small towns and villages, each offering something for everyone, from fantastic sports facilities to beautiful architecture.
Los Alcazeres was chosen by Arab kings for a residential retreat.. Beautiful 'Blue Flag' beaches, a palm lined promenade, beach bars, restaurants, tapas bars, shops, water sports, markets, and amenities, make it the Ideal location for the perfect holiday.
SANTIAGO DE LE RIBERA:
Wonderful Blue Flag beaches and an extensive promenade currently under major renovation. Here you will find the ferry point to the Roda Beach Club.
LO PAGAN AND THE THERAPEUTIC MUD BATHS:
Lo Pagan has the largest area of open-air mud baths in all of Europe, known as Las charcas de las Salinas. They are recommended for all types of skin and rheumatic ailments. It is advisable to combine these mud baths with the waters from the Mar Menor, which have therapeutic properties due to the high content of mineral salts and iodine. In addition Lo Pagan has various tranquil beaches, ideal for boating and swimming.
LA MANGA DEL MAR MENOR
The Mar Menor is separated from the Mediterranean by a narrow strip of land 22 kilometers (14 miles) long called the La Manga del Mar Menor. Its sandy beaches and clear waters have made it one of the highest regarded tourist resorts on the Mediterranean, offering excellent water sport facilities, including sailing, sailing schools and scuba diving. At the very end of the strip you will find the exclusive "Roda Beach Club", which can be reached by private water taxi in just afew minutes.
THE REGIONAL PARK OF SALINAS AND SAN PEDRO DEL PINATAR:
The most important wetlands in the region of Murcia. Flocks of Pink Flamingo's stop over here each year on their journey to North Africa at the end of the summer.
THE MEDITERRANEAN COAST, with its spacious beaches and varied landscape
BEACHES IN THE AREA:
The golden sandy beaches of Los Alcazares have been awarded the coveted blue flag of excellence and the warm water of the Mar Menor makes bathing a delight. There is ample provision of showers, toilets, first aid, rescue services and facilities for the disabled. Within a short distance from the town you can take your pick from the rest of the Costa Calida's 250km of beaches and coves. Around 50km of those are on the Mar Menor itself. The rest are on the Mediterranean. Many beaches offer a range of water sports and other activities whilst others provide secluded tranquillity, some are conservation areas designated as national or regional parks of outstanding natural beauty...

Some 20 kilometres inland, the city of Murcia (pronounced 'murrthia') was founded on the banks of the Segura river by the Moorish leader Abd-ar-Rahman II in 825 AD. Today, it is the capital city of the Murcia region, though it shares some of the region's administrative duties with its older sister town Cartagena. It is also home to the University of Murcia which has over 30,000 students studying in more than 70 departments. Murcia bristles with fine architecture, including, the 14th century cathedral, The Monastery of Santa Clara la Real, The Episcopal Palace, The Almudi, The Convent of Santa Ana, The Sanctuary of Fuensanta, The Gardens of Malecón, various ancient churches, a fine casino and a number of excellent museums. The city's water-driven history is evident in the Hydraulic Museum and the old water mills on the the Segura. There is also the Museum of Murcia and housed in La Ermita de Jesús is the museum of the sculptor Francisco Salzillo. The city has hundreds of excellent shops, bars, restaurants and theatres including the Roman Theatre and El Centro de Congresos which frequently play host to conferences, art exhibitions and music festivals.
CABO DEL PALOS:
Located a few minutes from La Manga, a charming seafaring village, with an unmistakable mid-19th century lighthouse perched atop a hill that affords a wonderful panoramic View of La Manga. This coastal enclave is also known for its delicious fish and caldero (a soupy rice dish) served at the restaurants around the port, its Sunday market and for being one of the best sites in Spain for skin diving.
The large bay of Cartagena (pronounced 'carrta-henna') provides a natural harbour making it an excellent commercial and naval port. The city was founded around 227 BC by the Carthaginian and was originally called Carthago Nova. It was captured by the Romans in 209 BC, ransacked by the Goths in 425 AD then restored and developed by the Moors. There is much evidence of ancient architecture dating right back to 227 BC. The Roman amphitheatre, carved into the rock above the port has been dated around 1 BC and the original 13th century cathedral is still standing.
There's the Museum of Maritime Archaelogy and a city centre offering a fine array of shops interspersed with Roman relics. You can even peer down through a glass pavement and see the ancient cobbled street below. Music and other festivals play a big part in Cartagena's culture; in July the city hosts the world music festival 'La Mar de Músicas', there's the International Jazz Festival in November and in September the city's colourful history is brought to life in the form of the festival of 'Carthaginians and Romans'.
South of Cartagena, the Mazarron area Spans 35 kilometres of the Murcian coast with dozens of sandy beaches and coves. There are two main centres of activity... the town and the port. The town of Mazarron itself is 5 kilometres from the coast, whilst Puerto de Mazarron is the town centred around the fishing port. Street markets are held in Mazarron town centre on Saturdays and in Puerto de Mazarron on Sundays. Bolnuevo a small coastal village has some shops, bars and restaurants and some amazing rock formations.
Alicante is the administrative capital of the Alicante region. The town is also known by the name Alacant. The Moorish castle of Santa Bárbara sits on mount Benacantil and overlooks this ancient town, whose history dates back to before 1000 BC. The Romans called the place Lucentum 'City of Light'. It was conquered in 1246 by the Castilian Alfonso X, and became part of the kingdom of Valencia under Jaime II in 1308. Today, it is a major industrial city with a mediterranean coast lined with hotels and apartments. It's many attractions include; the Archaelogical Museum and the 'Museo Casa de la Asegurada' with it's excellent art gallery. Even by Spanish standards Alicanteans are serious fiesta addicts. There are fiestas virtually all year round. Not to be ignored is "Las Fogueres de Sant Joan" at the end of June. On 24th June a procession of giant figures is torched amidst a massive firework display with the festivities continuing for four more days. The city has excellent road links, a sea port and a major international airport at El Altet. Alicante's 'Recincto Ferial' is large conference centre which regulary hosts major international trade fairs.
THE REGIONAL PARK OF CALBLANQUE:
Calblanque is one of the few areas on the Murcian coast that still preserves all of it's natural beauty, a section of the coast left in it's virgin state, with arid mountains, dunes, long sandy beaches and an intensely Blue sea. This nature haven can be visited on foot, by bicycle or horseback, and is home to interesting vegetation and birds (Flamingo, Heron and stork) which inhabit the Salinas de Rasal.
La Manga's nearest town, where the rich and famous are frequently spotted dining out at one of the many local restaurants or tapas bars.
La Union is a town developed as a result of intensive mining activities where Carthaginians and Romans once mined tons of iron and other ores all over the empire from Portman. In the 19th century, silver fever produced and attracted newfound wealth to La Union, the same as the Californian gold rush. The prosperity during this period is reflected in a number of Art Nouveau buildings in the centre of the town, such as the Casa Del Pinon, and the public market an authentic treas.
Aguilas lies on the Mediterranean coast in the southwest corner of the Murcia region. The area is relatively untouched by modern industrialisation. It possesses nearly 34Kms of coastline in four large bays overlooked by the clifftop Castle of San Juan de Aguilas. Other relics in the area include Roman Thermal Baths. Aguilas is host to the National Salsa Music Festival and there's a colourful Carnival in February.
Lorca is located in western Murcia, about 30Km inland from Aguilas. It is a large town covering nearly 1700 square kilometres. The town's Archaelogical Museum has locally discovered artefacts which are evidence to the fact that the area has been inhabited since neolithic times. Today it bears many examples of interesting architecture including the medieval Castle of Lorca, a number of ancient churches and a modernist casino.
ELCHE (ELX) and SANTA POLA :
Originally named Portus Illicitanus by the Romans, Santa Pola has taken its name from the old name of the nearby Mediterranean island of Tabarca. In the centre of the town is a castle dating from the 16th century. It now houses a maritime museum, an aquarium and a chapel. Nearby you can see the Roman 'Villa Palmeral' and other ancient ruins including a Roman fish factory. Santa Pola has some excellent beaches, shops, bars and restaurants. Its wide expanses of shallow salt lakes attract large numbers of birds of many species, including flamingos. There are also plenty of other attractions including the 'Pola Park' funfair and the Salt Museum.
Inland you can find the city of Elche, built within an amazing forest of over 800,000 palm trees. There are superb botanical Gardens including the famed 'Huerto del Cura' and the Municipal Park. There is also a huge natural lagoon called El Fondo. Archaeological digs at L'Alcudia have dated a stone-age settlement at Elche to around 5000 BC, there are also fine examples of later settlements including a Roman villa.
Other local attractions include the annual performance by local residents of 'La Misteri' a lyrical passion play dating from the middle-ages and performed on the 14th and 15th August in the Basílica de Santa María. If your timing's right you will can see the procession of the palms on Palm Sunday, otherwise drop by the Museum of Contemporary Art or the Safari Park which are both open for most of the year.
Los Alcazares / Roda Golf area
SPORTS AND WELLBEING:
The Mar Menor, because of its serenity and clean water, in addition to its favorable weather conditions, is an unequaled area for doing and competing in most nautical sports. Because of this, the Mar Menor is considered one of the best areas in the world for sailing. It is also one of the few areas where regattas of "Latin" sailing still takes place, a specialty that attracts a lot of attention on the coastal beaches. Seventeen International sailing schools and well equipped Nautical clubs, perfectly equipped for sailing, canoeing and skin diving, make up the " Water Sports Resort" of the Mar Menor, catering for both the beginner and the more experienced.
A wide variety of underwater settings and the good visibility of its transparent waters, make the Murcian coast one of the foremost places in the country for scuba diving. The best areas are located on Cabo de Palos, where a huge variety of flora and fauna exist, as well as interesting shipwrecks that have sunk along these shores. The beauty and variety of the seabed of the marine reserve of the Islas Hormigas make this an excellent place for scuba diving. There are a number of schools and diving centres catering for both expert and beginner.
Underwater caves are located between Cartegena and La Azohia, with large underwater vaults and galleries. Maps of the caves should be used since some are several kilometers long with maze like galleries.
The old roads used by miners and fishermen along the coast between Cabo de Palos and Portman, between Cartegena and the bay of Mazzarron, or in the Calnegre Park and Cabo Cope, all provide splendid countryside for hiking.
The trails and roads between Cabo de Palos and Cartegena are in good condition and afford an impressive landscape through the mountains. Salinas de San Pedro is also recommended for a pleasurable ride.
From the Mar Menor, it is possible to arrange rides through the mountains, along the coast or through the vast plains of the Campo de Catagena, and the lovely farmland and pastures.
Salt-water fishing is popular all along the Mediterranean coast. Especially recommended are the areas of Aguilles and Mazzaron because of the depth and transparency of the waters

Thank you and I take on board regarding the TV, we bought the apartment as our 2nd home and not originally for rental, work commitments during the summer lead us to rent out and we didn't tend to watch a lot of TV so just had a TV to watch adhoc and the odd bit of news from home. We are however thinking about another one. So pleased you enjoyed the rest of the apartment and look forward to hopefully seeing you again.

"Excellent accommodation in a pleasant surroundings"
This is the second year we have stayed in Casa en el Sol and once again we were delighted with the accommodation and the facilities available. The apartment is comfortable, well furnished, clean and with everything provided that we needed. This year we made use of the roof top solarium to host a barbecue for family and friends who were also staying at Roda Golf. The roof top solarium is perfect for private sunbathing (and for catching the last rays at the end of the day), for terrific views (on a clear day you can see the Mar Menor and La Manga strip) and for barbecues! This year Sandra has installed WIFI in the apartment which is a great bonus for keeping in touch with people back home.
The apartment is located conveniently close to all Roda Golf facilities - the shop, golf course and hotel, Roda FM office and the front gate which makes it easy for taxi pick up and drop off. You can walk down to Los Alcazares and beaches but it takes a good half hour which is hard work in the hot sun. I recommend car hire for trips to the beach and for visiting neighbouring towns. However, it is easy to get a taxi for evening visits to the many bars and restaurants in Los Alcazares. It is also pleasant to spend a relaxing evening "at home" in Case en El Sol with drinks and nibbles watching the sunset followed by twinkling lights on the distant horizon of the Mar Menor (that was a bit poetic!)
Sandra's payment arrangements are also a reason for a repeat booking because it was so easy - direct in £sterling by cheque or bank transfer. For me, these direct payment arrangements are very welcome compared with the hassle we have experienced in the past with other rentals which require advance payment in Euros which means using Paypal. On the 2 occasions we have stayed, the breakage deposit cheque has been returned within a week of our return home.
We will definitely book Casa en el Sol again and highly recommend it for a comfortable well-equipped apartment in beautiful surroundings.
thank you and so pleased you enjoyed your stay.

"Wanted for nothing"
We had a lovely holiday at Roda Golf. this is the third apartment we have stayed in on Roda and so far it offered the most value for money it had everything we needed just like home from home but only with the sun. I would recommend this apartment to anyone.. Even though it was on the second floor it wasn't a problem as there is a lift. I will definitely rent this apartment again. Sandra who owns the apartment was very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them the free wifi was a massive bonus too.
Thank you Isabel, so pleased you enjoyed your stay look forward to seeing you again.

"Fantastic Apartment - perfectly situated!"
We stayed at the apartment for the second year running - its a beautiful apartment and unlike some on Roda Golf is ideally situated - not far from the clubhouse. The roof terrace is perfect for chilling out & relaxing - so lovely sitting up there chatting, reading, drinking wine ................ Its beautifully furnished and the terrace furniture is really nice to relax in. In the evening you can see the lights all along the coast as well as the stars - absolutely lovely. Lovely bedrooms with very comfortable beds!
The owner is very prompt with bookings and returning deposits etc - very nice to deal with as not all owners take as much care and effort.
Los Alcazares and Los Narejor are delightfully unspoilt with an excellent choice of many restaurants to eat at.
We will definitely be back at some point for our third visit!
Thanks again both for choosing our apartment for a 2nd year. We have Wifi booked to be all up and running end of this month Oct 13 and plans for a built in BBQ on the roof terrace early part of next year.

"A perfect choice for our holiday."
A lovely apartment which is furnished and equipped to a higher standard than most rentals. Security is excellent. Two good size bedrooms and two bathrooms make for a very comfortable stay. Everything is provided even binoculars and a selection of books. The roof terrace is a real bonus. The clubhouse and shop are only a short stroll which is great for fresh bread in the morning or an early evening drink or meal. On site management very helpful. Local amenities and beaches are close and excellent. A really good holiday choice. Will go again.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay at our apartment(at last). Look forward to hearing from you soon.
