Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Villa Carmen is a traditionally Spanish styled 3 bed villa set in its own large well maintained private garden. The centrepiece of the garden is the 9m x 5m pool with roman steps and handrail for maximum fun and safety. The pool is completely private, for use of Villa Carmen guests only.
One of the great features of this villa, if you have small children, is that once the gate is locked the garden area is completely secure and the layout is such that children in the pool are always in view, and easily supervised, from the covered terrace.
An abundant supply of sunbeds, parasols etc is available for guests use.
The nearby golf clubhouse is open to all, has regular entertainment and serves good quality food and drinks at very reasonable prices.
Set in a quiet area of the estate and perfect for a relaxing holiday but an easy drive to Mazarron or Puerto de Mazarron with their numerous restaurants and cafe-bars.
During the summer months a charming little "road train" shuttles back and forth between the commercial centres and the rest of Camposol giving the usual driver a chance of a rest!
Air conditioning is available in the main two bedrooms. We give you a very generous electric use allowance per week which is easily adequate for normal use. Excessive use is paid for with a "pay as you go" card system though this is only necessary if the air conditioning is over-used.

The Costa Calida region
Good shopping in Murcia city and Cartagena. Local, good value markets in Puerto and most surrounding towns. All towns, large or small, have regular Fiestas, mainly in Spring or Autumn.
Good quality Spanish and English bars and restaurants abound, especially for seafood lovers. Chinese food is excellent and very cheap.
Watersports, fishing and tennis all available locally. Bike and mountain bike hire available locally. Go kart circuit and tenpin bowling alley in Puerto de Mazarron.
Mazarron is a small Spanish town and is situated 25 miles from Murcia. The main town has banks, indoor produce market, medical facilities, shops and restaurants, while 5 minutes drive away is the Port. Puerto de Mazarron has superb sandy beaches and secluded coves, a harbour and a marina. There are restaurants and bars but no chip shops or fast food take-aways.
The paseo has been extended, has been renewed beautifully with no expense spared and now reaches down to El Alamillo. A walk along here is a lovely way to pass the warm evenings. Apart from tourism, the region is famous for farming and agriculture. Most of the tomatoes in British supermarkets come from this area.
Sports - Mazarron is one of the most important tourist centres for marine and sub-aquatic activities in Spain. The frequency of prevailing winds throughout the year in the Bay of Mazarron means sailing instruction and practice can be undertaken at any time of the year. Furthermore, the clear waters and rich flora and fauna offer the diving enthusiast some highly interesting underwater depths.
But Mazarron is not only sea, but also air - you can go hang-gliding and enjoy some unique views, and land: climb jagged mountains from whose peaks you can see the warmest beaches, follow paths on foot, by bicycle or on horseback through ever changing scenery. Mazarron is not just peace and relaxation. If you like adventure sports and being close to nature, you are at the right place.
The Costa Calida, known as the Warm Coast, is situated in the south east corner of the Iberian Peninsula. To the north lies the Costa Blanca and to the south is Almeria. There are some 250km of coastline and it benefits from around 320 days of sunshine per year with temperatures ranging from 18C to 38C in the summer season and around 12C to 22C during the winter season.
The many sandy beaches make the Costa Calida a very popular holiday destination with both the English and the Spanish.
Camposol, which translates as 'Countryside in the Sun' is situated 12kms (15 mins by car) from the lovely beaches of Mazarron. It is predominently a residential area and therefore respect for those living close by would be appreciated. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing break then this is the place for you. A superb inland village has been created with supermarkets, several restaurants, bars, including sports bar with Sky Sports, racing etc, shops, banks, and hairdressers - all within a short drive of Casa Centelles, without even having to leave Camposol itself. Restaurant choices include 2 Chineses, Indian, Italian, Spanish and English. There is also a petrol station on site.
There is an 18 hole golf course, within a 3 minute drive, where as long as you have your handicap card, you can play. At the golf course you will also find a luxury clubhouse which serves food and drinks and has weekend entertainment, together with the driving range where a bucket of balls costs a modest fee.
The Sensol Hotel luxury spa hotel is now open, offering spa treatments and spring water spa pools - an amazing experience and great for easing away the aches and pains after a days golf.
Close by is the new Polaris World resort of Condado de Alhama with its brand new superb 18 hole golf course.
This is about a 10 minute drive from Casa Centelles door to door. Have all the facilities on hand and yet still be able to escape back to a fabulous location with restaurants and bars all within easy reach.

But Mazarron is not only sea, but land & air too, from hang-gliding to rock climing thre is much to see and do in this unspoilt corner of Spain. Walking, Cycling and Horseriding are just some of the activities available in the local area. If you like adventure sports and being close to nature, you are in the right place.
To the north of Mazarron, through Totana or Alhama, you will find the beautiful national park, Sierra Espuna. The views are spectacular and along the journey you will find a few small bars and restaurants serving good quality and reasonably priced food. There are a number of walks signposted and if you are lucky, you will see some wild boar and red squirrels. See a different side of Spain as here there is not a beach or swimming pool in sight.
