Location description from owner

The Region of Murcia region

With over 300 sunny days a year averaging 22 degrees celcius Murcia is one of Spain's sunniest regions. The villa is situated between the Carrascoy Mountain Range near the City of Murcia and the beaches of Costa Calida or "warm coast" on the Mediterranean Sea. You can enjoy the clear waters and clean sands on the Mar Menor or "inland sea".

This area can offer a holiday for everyone. With a choice of fantastic beaches, cultural cities and monuments, shopping, golf, water sports, cycling, tennis, paddle tennis(pádel' in Spanish), markets, horse riding, eating out or eating in, exploring the local country side or just taking time to relax. It’s your holiday – you choose.

Murcia is a cosmopolitan city and one of our favourites, with its large shopping centres, markets and department stores - excellent for those who love to shop!

This city has a long history shown by its many examples of architecture and idyllic squares, streets, bridges and river walks. The Moors, Romans and Christians have all had a part to play in this city's history. It boasts some of the finest cinemas, theatres, museums, concerts, art galleries & exhibitions. Murcia is a wonderful setting to discover the many bars and restaurants hidden in idyllic squares where you can sit and pass the time of day whilst enjoying the fabulous Murcian cuisine in the centre of a real Spanish city.

The port of Cartagena is well worth a visit with its narrow winding streets housing shops, cafes and restaurants. The harbour offers a beautiful place to sit and relax in the port area in one of the many bars and restaurants, however it is well worth the more adventurous following the coast line to find those little cafes and restaurants hidden from the main tourist route.

The children really enjoy the water park (Terra Aqua Murcia) and animal park (Terra Natura Murcia) in Murcia, just 15 minutes drive away, or the beaches. The Mar Menor is very calm and 5 degrees warmer than the Mediterrranean , it is absolutly fantastic for small children and a great place to experience the Spanish way of life. If you would like to enjoy beaches with a bit more wave and excitement it is worth travelling up the coast, where the waves can be quite fierce.

Walking and mountain biking is a must for those who wish to explore the El Valle Natural Park and Carrascoy Mountains.

For those wishing to travel further afield, two of our favourite places are approximately two hours drive north to the Fonts Agua in Calossa and Guadalest. The water falls are not only beautiful but a great place to cool down and for the brave there is a diving board into one of the main pools or swim through the rocks to sit under the main flow. A definite must for those who want to experience the vibrance of the fresh water and those who want to watch. We tend to drive straight to GUADALEST which is an amazing hillside town, experience spectacular views, enjoy the cafes, shopping and sightseeing. A fantastic day out.

There is a whole heap of other exciting things to do and visit - we have made up a folder in the villa for you to refer to - remember if you want an active holiday look at it early in your holiday - if you prefer to look up the local restaurants and relax around the villa and resort then that's okay too.

El Valle Golf Resort

As guests of the Casa de Mendes Villas you are entitled to play golf on all the Polaris World courses. The El Valle Course is a short walk from the villa but the other courses can be accessed by car or by using the complimentary bus which picks passengers up from the Clubhouse. Other world class golf courses are available in the locality.The Resort offers:

Superb 18 hole Jack Nicklaus Golf Course
Driving Range
Putting Green
Golf Pro Shop
Tennis and Paddle Tennis(pádel' in Spanish) Courts
Children's Play Areas
Supermarket- well stocked
Cycle Hire
Large communal pools

The Local area can offer a huge range of activities and places of interest, depending on how far you are prepared to travel. We have summarised our favourites in a folder in the villa for your perusal.


Murcia Spring Festival

when: April (annual)
where: Murcia
cost: Free

The spring celebrations blossom in Murcia very soon after Easter. The city is awash with colour and sounds as thousands of locals, dressed in embroidered regional costume, partake in the parades and parties of the Murcia Spring Festival.

Look out for the Bando de la Huerta on the Tuesday, when a grand procession of music groups, dance troupes and giant costumed characters winds through the streets. The parade's highlight has to be the travelling food carts - gather round as typical Murcian goodies of blood sausage, fruit, vegetables and wine are distributed among the crowds.

The following Saturday sees the bizarre burial of the sardine, where locals mourn the end of the carnival celebrations. Murcia's version of this nationwide custom involves an elaborate parade with a huge paper sardine and colourful floats, which distribute toys into the crowd. When the fish arrives at the Puente Viejo (Old Bridge), it is set on fire and a huge fireworks display marks the end of the festival.

Carthaginians & Romans Festival

when: September (annually)
where: Cartagena
cost: Free

The Murcian city of Cartagena presents the ten-day Carthaginians & Romans Festival. The event remembers the city's rich history with battle re-enactments, marches, a wedding, a circus and fireworks.

The festival traditionally opens with the lighting of a sacred fire and the inauguration of the Festival Camp beside the Estadio Municipal. On the final day, the fire is extinguished and a big fireworks display takes place.

Website: Carthaginians and Romans Festival Website

Festival of the Holy Cross

when: May (annually)
where: Caravaca de la Cruz

Caravaca de la Cruz celebrates the Festival of the Holy Cross with the town's infamous race of the "Wine Horses" (caballos de vino). Riderless horses, wearing beautifully embroidered coats, race from the bottom of the town up to the castle.

The horse race takes place on the second day of the five-day fiesta. The caballos are led by a porter on each side, who must run as fast as their legs can carry them, while people line the route and cheer on the competitors. The only wine you are likely to come across, just in case you were wondering, is at Mass earlier in the day.

The tradition dates back to around 1250, when templar knights raced across territory ruled by the Moors to bring wine to those that guarded the relic of the True Cross (Vera Cruz), kept there since 1231.

During the rest of the five-day festival, locals celebrate at special church services, processions and historical re-enactments of the Moors and Christians throughout the town.

“Total Home from Home!”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2016

I have nothing bad to say about this villa. From the lovely well maintained pool to the substantial gardens, the thoughtfully accessorised kitchen to the air conditioning, this villa has everything you need to provide a base for exploring or in our case a complete chill out holiday. I spent 11 nights here with my family ( husband, 14 yr old and 12yr old) in July - the highlights of the villa are definitely the fast wifi which enabled us to watch Netflix with no trouble on our iPad. There is also satellite television giving you all the familiar British channels. Factor in the shelves full of books and dvd's, cupboard full of board games and folder full of restaurants and days out ideas and you just about have my idea of perfection. You will definitely need a car here as the local supermarket on site is a good 25 min walk away and there is only the clubhouse on site if you want to eat out but within 30 mins you have loads of options for shopping, eating out and family fun! We enjoyed New Yorks bar for food a couple,of evenings - extremely reasonable priced and usually some form of entertainment in a nice friendly environment.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your fabulous review. We are very happy that you found everything you needed at Casa De Mendes. We strive to ensure that our guests have everything they need to have the holiday they wish for. We agree that our villa is a perfect base for you to choose what you want to do, when you want to do it! We are thrilled that you found our Visitors Information Folder useful, this information has been collated from the personal experiences of our family, friends and guests. We always welcome contributions of new ideas to include as this makes trips more exciting for our returning guests. We will add The New Yorks bar to the restaurant section, thank you. We see that you made excellent use of the Wifi and Satellite TV, and hope that you were able to play some of the games provided. As you say having a car does allow you more opportunities to explore the surrounding area, cultural festivities, beautiful beaches, national parks, vineyards, shops and local restaurant. There is a lot to do in this region. We are very, very pleased that you felt so at ease in our villa and we would welcome your return in the furture. Best Wishes Lionel and Nicole

“Fantastic, clean and well maintained villa !!”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2016

We stayed in this villa in June with our 3 girls. Lionel made the booking very easy for us and we had all the info we needed before departure. The villa was much more than we expected , like others have said the photos don't do it justice !! Our arrival was late but we were well looked after by the key holder ;-) Brian. The kids were in the pool first thing the following morning whilst we lay in bed. We hired a car and found the area to be ideally situated for getting about., we visited the mud baths , archena , the waterpark in Murcia and the beautiful beach in los alcazers The shop on site was reasonably priced , but we did stock up from Aldi slightly further afield. There were more than enough plates , glasses , cutlery - which often in this type of villa there are not ! This holiday recharged our batteries and allowed us to visit family with the independence we needed. We will be back !! Thankyou Lionel and Nicola.

Owner's reply: Thank you Sally for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our beautiful villa and had everything you needed to make your stay relaxing and fun for everyone. The girls certainly seemed to have made the most of the pool, which is fantastic, and the fact that you can open the french doors and keep an eye on them whilst relaxing in bed is an absolute bonus! Thank you to Lionel's easy booking and pre-arrival information, and Brian's welcome on your arrival I am sure you were all able to settle in very quickly and comfortably to enjoy your holiday. We agree that getting out and about in a hired car is easy, and the most economical way to explore the many local attractions, shops, cultural activities, beautiful beaches, restaurants and in your case, relatives! We are very proud of our beautiful, clean villa and are very pleased that you were able to recharge your batteries. We look forward to your return for another great holidaty. Best wishes Lionel and Nicole.

“All you could want in a villa”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

These photos, although good, do not do Casa de Mendes justice. The villa boasts an impressive entrance into a light and airy living room overlooking the pool, with plenty of outside space for dining and sunbathing. We made the most of the BBQ almost every evening. It was handy having the supermarket on site to keep the fridge topped up! A car is essential here if you're planning on getting out and about but it is equally just as fun to while away the hours here at Casa de Mendes. Thanks for a great week!

“Secluded peaceful location”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2013

Good for a getaway from it all holiday. The villa provides all you may need, including free Wi-Fi. The outside space and pool was really good, a very relaxing environment. The owner Lionel was really helpful and eager to sort out any of our small issues and made our stay enjoyable. The resort itself is great for golfers, with a good clubhouse, having a supermarket on site is an added bonus and, as you are some distance from the nearest town, a car is a must here. The El Valle is a good base, the road system is excellent, and easy to get to places, the coast is about a 30 minute drive, once there plenty of places to eat and drink. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Lionel.

“Relaxing week at Casa de Mendes”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2013

We enjoyed a relaxing week at this lovely and well equipped villa. The villa itself is spacious, clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we required and having a BBQ for use was an added bonus. The children enjoyed playing in the pool and the garden. El Valle Golf resort is quiet, safe and well looked after. The onsite supermarket was competitively priced and well stocked. We would not hesitate to recommend Casa de Mendes to our friends and family.

“perfect getaway”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2012

We had a wonderful time at casa Mendes. We wanted a quiet holiday where we could relax and we certainly did that. The villa is five star luxury. The clean pool was enjoyed by all especially my two daughters. Even the one year old was paddling at the more shallow end. We enjoyed lots of al fresco dining using the superb bbq areas and there was plenty of shade at all times. The resort is immaculate and my husband particularly enjoyed the golf. The villa is extremely well equipped and we found everything that we could want. We cannot rate Lionel highly enough for the help he gave us both before and after our holiday. We will recommend Casa Mendes to everyone.

“You will not be disappointed”

Reviewed 12 Aug 2012

The villa is in a quiet residential street, it is very well maintained and the garden and pool are in excellent condition. There was plenty of outdoor space for the children to play on and for us to relax. BBQ was also provided and even umbrella's for the beach. The interior was also in excellent condition, tastefully decorated and everything you needed was provided. There were plenty of glasses, dishes and even plastic ones for the children, it has been well looked after and thoughtfully stocked. There is a selection of DVDs, games and books, the children were delighted. There was also wi-fi you just buy a card at shop. There was plenty channels to watch also. It was spotless when we arrived and we even were offered change of beds after 1 week. Washing machine and outdoor dryer were really handy to have too.

“Lovely, Well-Equipped Villa”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2012

Your family of three (6 year old son) absolutely loved this villa and pool! It far exceeded our expectations, was very spacious and well laid out. The pictures do not do it justice. The villa itself and all of the furnishings are of a high-quality and it is very well-equipped. We were there in early June and the pool was easily warm enough to swim in. It has a shallow end that is perfect for children. The back yard was partially screened from the neighbors on both sides and very private. If it had a view onto the golf course it would have been amazing. The golf course, clubhouse restaurant, and driving range were all first class. Many thanks again to Nicole and Lionel for sharing their lovely villa with us!

“Home from home”

Travelling with a 4 year old and 18month old is stress full ,but add the grandparents in as well and its a hard combination to cater for.. This villa was the perfect home from home, everything I needed was available , cots , high chairs , laundry, well stocked kitchen , fanatastic dining space and brilliant family lounge with satelite TV. The bedrooms were very well layed out and the bathrooms were very clean and modern. The site seeing was amazing from the historic beauty of Cartegna and Guadalest , to the beach and sport life of the coastal region which was all with in easy commutable distance.The resturants were relaxing and amazing cuisine.
