Villa Penelope is set in its own large, well kept gardens set mainly to gravel which get the sun until quite late in the evening and are well equipped for relaxing or playing. The centrepiece is the large completely private pool which is immaculately maintained for maximum enjoyment. The area around the pool has a non slip tile surface for safety but the pool itself is unsupervised and guests need to take adequate precautions if non swimmers and small children are in the holiday group. The drive can easily park 3 or more cars off road. The pool is larger than average as the villa owner is a keen swimmer!

The Costa Calida region
Murcia is the driest region of Spain with almost no rainfall in the summer months. The Costa Calida area has its own micro climate produced by the Sierra Espuna mountain range giving a warm, non-humid atmosphere and air quality unsurpassed in Spain (and most of Europe).
Winters here are short and mild, and the Spring and Autumn remind you of a great English Summer. The landscape is a mixture of high dramatic mountains and broad fertile plains dotted with orange groves, almond plantations and tomato farms.
Good shopping in Murcia city and Cartagena. Local, good value markets in Puerto and on Camposol 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.
Sierra Espuna - To the north of Mazarron, through Totana or Alhama, you will find the beautiful national park, Sierra Espuna. The drive can be daunting but 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.
Camposol - Situated 12kms from the lovely beaches of Mazarron, a superb inland village has been created with supermarkets, restaurants, bars and shops. There is a 18 hole golf course. At the golf course you will also find a luxury clubhouse which has weekend entertainment and the driving range where a bucket of balls costs a modest €1.
Most of the properties at Camposol have use of a pool whether it is a private or a gated commual pool but there is also a large communal swimming pool with a bar, cafe, sunbeds and parasols and tennis courts but these are pay per use at €3 per session. The spa hotel is very high standard and you can enjoy spa and beauty treatments at reasonable cost. For the more adventurous there are many country walks among the almond and olive trees.
Camposol itself has its own facilities from Banks, supermarkets, shops, bars, restaurants, doctors, dentist and so on.
