Description

People love our house; it is spacious, modern and very comfortably furnished. We also offer complimentary WiFi to keep you connected.

Facing South on the foothills of the stunning Sierra de Colombares regional park, it offers panoramic views over the village and countryside beyond towards the coast from the large roof terrace which is great for al fresco dining or relaxing. Staying here, you are in true rural Spain, away from the commercial tourist resorts but conveniently close for you to visit them easily.

You will be staying a short drive away from historic cities, such as Murcia or Cartagena, safe bathing or watersports in the Mar Menor, breath-taking scenery, golf, cycling, wildlife or vineyards. Take your pick...or simply relax, soaking up the sun and the village atmosphere.

Location description from owner

The Region of Murcia region

"Costa Cálida" means "warm coast," so named because of the wonderful climate, giving year-round averages of 22 degrees and providing such a healthy environment that Murcia is known as the "Garden of Europe", producing a cooking enthusiast's dream of first-rate fresh produce all year round. It's not just the fleshy artichokes, the unbeatable, tangy tomatoes and the juicy citrus fruits fresh from the surrounding orange and lemon groves, but the succulent sea-food, freshly caught in the Mediterranean and the Mar Menor. A trip to any of the fabulous markets is an adventure in itself.

The region of Murcia is home to some of the most handsome towns in Spain - Lorca and Caravaca de la Cruz among them- as well as dozens of sleepy, castle-topped villages. It also boasts several regional parks, including the Sierra de Espuña, a natural park ideal for hiking, bird-watching and getting back to nature. Alternatively, try the Mar Menor, Europe’s largest salt-water lagoon providing calm waters, safe bathing and a plethora of water sports.

Murcia town is a truly congenial, unspoilt, deeply Spanish little city, hemmed in by mountains, where sitting in a flower-filled square enjoying some tapas with a drink is one of life’s greatest pleasures. This university town is an exciting mix of the contemporary and traditional: tree-lined avenues, modern parks and quaint cafés blend with an Old Quarter that harks back to the city’s Moorish roots & includes the breath-taking 14th Century Cathedrál de Santa Maria.

Be sure, also, to visit the truly ancient port of Cartagena on the coast. This wonderful city has hosted countless civilisations over millennia, most of which have left their mark on the culture and architecture. The harbour mouth is a formidable natural defence which has been developed by man, most recently in WW II and was the location of much of the filming for "The Guns of Navarone."

La Tercia

The village is part of the Spanish equivalent of an English Manor, with the Manor House, La Hacienda, of Don Paco a short walk away from the village, directly overlooking the new golf course.
It is a truly Spanish village & we enjoy a walk through it of a morning, exchanging greetings with the locals and visiting the bakery to buy warm, freshly baked bread, croissants or pastries for the day. We might call in at either of the two grocer's shops on the way back for delicious cold meats, cheeses and vegetables with wine, straight from the barrel. Perhaps we'll bump into Pedro who is usually walking around as he hand-makes baskets which he's happy to sell for a very reasonable sum. Add in two tapas bar/restaurants, offering an excellent 'menu del día' lunch, a bar and an ice-creamery and you can laze away, perhaps enjoying some of the walks in the area along which you can pick fruit & nuts.

The village is served by bus and a good rail link is in the next village if you'd like to venture further afield, however, if you enjoy touring, it is well worth hiring a car to be able to fully appreciate the stunning scenery of this area.

Activities in the immediate area include golf, angling, walking, climbing, cycling and birdwatching. In the coastal region, water sports of all kinds are available, along with safe bathing in the warm, calm & shallow waters of the Mar Menor (Little Sea) & the usual facilities of modern resorts. Also close by are the salt lakes and regional parks (including Spains largest bird reserve) which offer protection to flocks of flamingos, wild life and migratory birds.

The area is blessed with several established golf courses, such as Mosa Trajectum (host of the PGA Europro Tour Final, 2004) & La Peraleja, designed by Sevvy Ballesteros, both a 5 minute drive away. Also Villamartin, Las Ramblas, Campoamor, La Finca and, of course, La Manga. In addition, there are as many under construction or near completion. See the map at http://www.costacalida.com/images/Mapa%20Golf%20Murcia.jpg for most of the courses.

The province of Murcia is big on fiestas which are held on the slightest pretext & many are peculiar to this region alone. The major ones, common to other areas of Spain are throughout Easter week, Epiphany week (the Spanish Christmas celebration) and the 'Moors & Christians' events during September; in addition, you will find many smaller fiestas in cities, towns & villages throughout the province. La Tercia itself hosts a 9 day fiesta for the people of the district in July every year. There are parades, concerts, huge paella parties, barbecues and many other events for young & old, at which everyone is welcome, Spanish or not.

“Excellent accomodation, location ideal for sightseeing and exploring”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2014

Lovely two bedroomed villa, immaculate condition, all the facilities available with clear instructions - making it home from home and a stress free stay. A roof top solarium added bonus. The location is a residential spot in a small village, with easy access to a swimming pool, two supermarkets, couple of bars and a small bakery (excellent bread). For our stay we hired a car to explore the nearby mountains, rural towns, coastal beaches and Murcia itself. There are several good restaurants within a 10-15 minute drive, we would recommend the local town of Sucina but can honestly say enjoyed all our experiences. Quality of the accomodation made an excellent base to come back to each day.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your kind words and we're very happy that you enjoyed your stay. We hope you'll come back to stay with us soon. Sandra & Steve
