Treat yourself by staying in our unique 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with huge wraparound terrace (165 sqm internal with 85 sqm terrace) - the largest apartment of the 3,300 apartments on Condado de Alhama. This was originally 2 adjoining apartments (a 3 bed and a 2 bed both built in 2009) until Sep 2013 when they were converted into one apartment. A plan of the layout, all on one level, is available to view in the photo gallery (click on the zoom magnifying glass to see in full). Both apartments have retained their kitchens so the 2 bed is similar to an annexe.
Would suit 5 or more people wanting to holiday in comfort and there are enough beds in the bedrooms to accommodate 10 people without anyone having to sleep in a living room. Ideal for two families on a summer holiday together or a group of 6 to 8 golfers looking for comfortable living whilst playing many of the excellent courses in the area (help can be provided with golf - this apartment is owned by a 3 handicap golfer who has played all the local golf courses).
La Isla of Condado de Alhama Golf Resort was constructed in 2009 and is located on an exclusive island (La Isla) with its own 24 hour security over the moat entrance. Enjoy long lazy meals on the extended expansive terrace (22 paces on one side and 15 paces the other side) with views over the lake and towards the Carrascoy mountain. Condado is very much an international resort with many owners from Norway, Denmark and Spain as well as Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland. Free access to large infinity swimming pools (with child sections), activity & child play areas on the island. Short 5 min walk to the resort supermarket, bars, restaurants & beauty/spa treatment. Pay and play golf and sports facilities on the resort. Short drive to fabulous child-friendly beaches and numerous sea-side restaurants at Puerto de Mazarron and Bolnuevo. The internet is 10mb wifi (with UK IP allowing BBCiPlayer as well as Sky if you have SkyGo), 2 satellite LCD TVs (incl 2 hard drive recorders with over 100 recorded films), blu-ray DVD player with surround sound (& plenty of blu-ray DVDs), wii (plus wii games) and top of the range aircon (in all bedrooms and both living rooms).
There is 1 superking sized bed, 1 double bed and 6 single beds (and any two of the singles can be bound together to create a twin bed). There are 2 bathrooms with one of them having a very large shower and the other a bath. Water filter in the kitchen so no need to buy bottled water. There is a lift to our 2nd floor apartment.The golf course is a superb Jack Nicklaus Signature course (best in Murcia) with excellent practice facilities. There are 2 sets of golf clubs (right handed) available for free use by guests. We have lived as a family in Murcia for many months so know the area very well and provide a detailed 30 page information pack (including lots of restaurant and beach suggestions) to guests.

The Murcia region
Costa Calida translates as the 'Warm Coast' and with over 300 sunny days in Murcia each year you can understand why. Murcia is also known as the 'garden of Spain' & for La Manga Club which was established near the Mar Menor salt-water lagoon in the 1970s. Recent years have seen a number of golf resorts built & to support the new developments there are brand new motorways but traffic is still low so getting about is easy.
There are a number of not-to-be-missed Spanish Festivals during the year. The old city of Murcia is 30 mins away with a Water Park, Zoo, Shops, Museums & Cathedral. The ancient city of Cartagena www.cartagenaturismo.es is 35 mins away with its Roman amphitheatre, Marina, Parks & Shops. Lorca is 30 mins away with its famous Castles (e.g. Fortress of the Sun). Closer are fishing villages/towns where you can walk the promenade or take a boat trip. Alternatively you can go walking or mountain biking in the mountains (e.g. Sierra Espuna National Park) or enjoy the numerous lovely unspoilt beaches.
Normal Temperatures in Murcia are 10 degrees centigrade higher than central England.
Condado de Alhama
Condado de Alhama is a new golf resort set in a valley between the mountain nature reserves of Sierra Espuña and Carrascoy-El Valle, consisting of 3,500 properties on a 900 hectare (2,250 acre) site. See the official resort website at www.condadodealhama.eu and if you want to see the official video about the resort's annual August Medieval Festival there is this www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHwRwmf47t4 from 2012.The gated resort is situated midway between Alhama de Murcia and the coastal town of Mazarron, just off the new RM23/RM3 motorway and is about a 15 min drive from the resort entrance to beaches at Mazarron or 30 mins to the ancient city of Cartagena. La Isla was built in 2009 as the exclusive area of Condado and consists of 11 apartment blocks aligned in an oval shape on a made-man island totalling 396 apartments (36 apartments on each block) - ours is one of a small number of extra-large apartments on La Isla. La Isla also has its own 24 hour manned security entrance over a moat and a 5 min walk away is the resort supermarket and restaurants and bars. It's a 45 min drive to La Isla from the Murcia airport at San Javier or 1.25 hours from Alicante. Murcia airport is due to move from San Javier to Corvera in 2013/14 which will cut transfer time in half (down to just 20 mins) from the airport to Condado.

"Great holiday for chilling out with great golf course and practise facilities."
The apartment had all the necessary requirements which made the short break I had very enjoyable. The golf courses I played were in very good condition even after the Autumn mantenance work on the greens. In fact the practise facilities are superb and within walking distance. A definate place for anyone wishing to seriously improve their game. The local beaches are unspoilt with the sea lovely and warm ,ideal for swimming and safe for children. Cratagena is my type of city with nice restaurants and shops , bars etc. The harbour area is a lovely place to just chill out in the evening. I now look forward to my next visit.

"Ideal Base for the Area"
Extremely well appointed apartment with local amenities and added advantage of championship golf course on site. Great centre to visit area and also access the many other brilliant golf courses in the environs. Transport essential for getting around but could pass a very enjoyable stay relaxing on the complex.
