Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
El Olivo is a beautifully presented bungalow-style villa with PRIVATE KIDNEY-SHAPED SWIMMING POOL and 2 air-conditioned bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin), very comfortably furnished and with everything you need for a wonderful peaceful and relaxing holiday.
The setting is fantastic, with panoramic mountain views all round from the gardens which are at both the front and rear of El Olivo - you can follow the sun all day if you wish! The pool side (which faces south-east so you get sun all day) has a lovely 7m x 4m kidney-shaped swimming pool, a shady terrace with comfortable garden furniture where you can enjoy the sunshine whilst eating your breakfast looking out on the countryside and mountains beyond, or cool down in the shade when the sun is at its hotttest, plus a sunbathing area with sunloungers, and a pool shower. At the rear is a paved patio area with table and chairs and a brick built-in barbecue, plus gated parking area. The sunsets are spectacular; you can watch the sun going down over the mountains from the rear patio - gin and tonic or a glass of wine or bubbly in hand of course! Mazarron Country Club's communal area is just a two minute walk away - here you will find a large tropical swimming pool, children's pool and poolside bar selling cold drinks and snacks, tennis courts, and bar/restaurant with free wi-fi and very reasonably priced food and drinks.

El Olivo is on Mazarron Country Club which is located around 10 minutes (by car) inland from the wonderful wide sandy beaches and coves of the Costa Calida (Warm Coast) resort of Puerto de Mazarron. The club is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains that protect it from the Meseta wind but allow the gentle sea breezes to filter through. Just a 2-minute walk away are the Country Club's communal facilities which include a large tropical swimming pool with bar and children's pool (summer months only - small fee), tennis courts, petanque pitches, and two large bar/restaurants.
The Murcia region
The Costa Calida (Warm Coast) has fantastic beaches, golf and countryside which, together with its very own micro-climate, provide a wonderful year-round holiday destination. There are around 320 days of sunshine a year, with temperatures averaging 32 degrees C in summer and 18 degrees C in winter - and the sea temperature rarely falls below 18 degrees C.
The coastline of the Costa Calida is made up of small inlets, coves and beautiful unspoilt beaches with mountain backdrops. This is an area of Spain largely undiscovered (as yet!), unspoilt by commercialism but popular with Spaniards who flock here during the summer months - but the number and expanse of the beaches ensure that they remain uncrowded. It is nothing like the concrete jungles that blot the landscape of some of the other Spanish costas.
Mazarron Country Club's communal facilities are just a couple of minutes' walk away and include a tropical pool and children's pool (summer months only - small fee), two bar/restaurants, tennis courts and pentanque pitch.
Lying between Mazarron Country Club and the sea is the typical Spanish town of Mazarron; on the coast is Puerto de Mazarron with its harbour and new marina with diving school, a palm-lined promenade with lots of bars and restaurants, secluded coves and superb Blue Flag beaches, as well as plenty of shops, tapas bars and Spanish restaurants in the Puerto itself. Here you can swim, sail and windsurf - or just sunbathe on the uncrowded beaches - and divers can search out the variety of fauna in the clear calm waters. Puerto de Mazarron also boasts the largest Sunday market in the region. You certainly won't be lost for things to do here. In the summer, Mazarron Council even arranges free concerts on the beach.
Nearby is Bolneuvo with its large sandy beach and strange mushroom-shaped monoliths carved out of sandstone. Around half an hour from Mazarron Country Club lies the Parque Natural de Sierra Espuna, a paradise for walkers and climbers with 250 sq km of unspoilt highlands and trails and habitat to wild goats and lynxes, whilst the coast between Mazarron and Aguilas is a breeding ground for tortoises and eagles.
If you like shopping and sightseeing, then the cities of Murcia and Cartagena with their upmarket department stores and historical sights can be reached in about half an hour.
The nearest golf course is at Camposol, a 5-minute drive away. There are many other golf courses within easy driving distance (in a car, not with a club!) including Desert Springs, La Serena, Hacienda Del Alamo, Rhoda Golf, Mosa Trajectum, Lo Romero, La Torre, Villamartin, Las Ramblas, Campoamor, La Finca, Quesada, Alta Real, Torre Parache and of course the famous courses at La Manga.
For more information about the area, do take a look at http://mazarron.co.uk which has a wealth of information about Mazarron Country Club and the surrounding area, things to do, beaches, the weather, restaurants etc etc.

"Our family holiday"
It's our 3rd time at el olivo and what can I say another fantastic time we all had. My 3 teenage kids loved the pool. It was a lovely relaxing 3 weeks and the views was lovely to look at every morning and evening. We would like to thank Claudia again for letting us have her lovely villa. We walked along the beach every evening and to the port. The villa is always clean and tidy when we arrive and picking the keys up is always easy. Just can't wait to go back there next year.

The Country Club was quiet and peaceful at this time of year- perfect for a relaxing stay.
Transport is a necessity as no supermarket on site- although basics available from the Country Club Taverna. There is also a very reliable taxi driver who lives on site.
Villa El Olivio had everything that was required and was very clean. Private pool was great for relaxation.
Claudia was fantastic to deal with on booking- everything went like clockwork including key pick up.

"Nice little bungalow, small but cute!"
Club Mazarron is a very nice development but not a place with lots of activity, especially if you have older kids/teenagers. El Olivo was nicely furnished and 'cosy' for 3 people. Lack of privacy by the pool was our main disappointment, as the wall between the neighbouring property was very low! The 'air-conditioning' units were awful! Also, it would have been useful to know we needed to take cleaning products as there was nothing there when we arrived and you can't buy small amounts of these things in Spanish supermarkets! Overall, a good holiday but best for families with small children or older couples.
For 2013 we have installed new air conditioning units in both bedrooms. Regarding cleaning materials, it is most unsual for there not to be an adequate supply available.
