The Costa Calida region
The area of Costa Calida (which translate as "warm coast") boasts an average 320 days of sunshine per year and is relatively quiet compared to the major resorts such as Benidorm etc. To the north lies the Costa Blanca and to the south lies the Costa Almeria with a total of 250 km of coastline. Although like most of coastal Spain having a substantial Northern European population, this area is mainly Spanish, and many restaurants and bars in the surrounding villages have retained their traditional feel.
The historic town of Cartegena is a major attraction, with a strong navy influence and a large business centre, guided bus tours and boat trip of the harbour. The capital city of Murcia is about the same size as Alicante, has a large business and shopping area with many up market department stores. The town of Totana, just 20 minutes drive away from the villa, has a train station with free parking, and has a direct line into the centre of Murcia city.
Sking in the Sierra Nevadas is about a 2.5hr drive away
Mazarron town is just 10 minutes drive away. Being a traditional Spanish town, it has many nice restaurants and bars, lots of small fashion shops, banks and business activities. There is a very popular and lively open air market every Saturday morning. Puerto de Mazarron is a further 5 to 10 minutes away and is a typical coastal resort. The main beach has many bars and restaurants and gets very busy during the month of August when the Spanish drive down from Madrid for their holidays.
The rest of the year can remain lively but relatively quiet. There are other beaches in the area that can be almost deserted for parts of the year.
