With mild temperatures in the winter months and warm summer days La Torre Golf Resort is the ideal location for a golf holiday all year round with average temperatures of 21c.
The location of La Torre Golf Resort is superb for family and golf holidays. It is just minutes away from miles of safe sandy beaches of the warm Mar Menor waters. The closest beaches just 20 minutes away are in Los Alcazares, which have won the Q awards in 2005 for their high standards. Los Alcazares has many local amenities.

In Murcia there is a superb cathedral and a several museums including the Archaeological Museum, Fine Arts Museum or the Salzillo Museum. Near the cathedral there are small lanes with little shops and boutiques.
There is plenty for the children too! Terra Mitica- a classic theme park experience giving a fun day out for all the family. Aqualandia: a great water-park.

“Better than ever”
This is the second time we have visited Casa Gatenby and we were unsure if it would live up to our happy memories from our last visit. It surpassed them. The property was immaculate made even better by the addition of a high quality extended kitchen. Casa Gatenby has everything you could want and more including bikes, beach chairs, inflatables, bbq, etc. it feels a little like home from home. We had forgotten how perfect the location of the villa was. Casa Gatenby looks onto a beautiful big pool and a set of floodlit tennis courts. Perfect if you have active children. The owners of Casa Gatenby, Kim and Martin, cannot do enough to help with the booking process. They respond to all emails swiftly and ensure you have everything you need for a stress free holiday. We cannot recommend this holiday home highly enough and have already booked for next year.
“Home from home, attentive owners, excellent facilities”
Booked for two weeks, family with 13 & 11 year olds. From initial enquiry I found the owners very attentive and helpful, with regular contact from booking all the way through to end of holiday. They clearly care for their property and have a genuine interest in ensuring that their guests enjoy their stay. One of the main reasons for choosing this property was the add-ons provided by the owners including the use of beach towels, golf clubs, tennis racquets, four bicycles, sun loungers, TVs, BBQ, Wi-Fi. The house is located next to a communal swimming pool and approx a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of the resort. The resort was quiet at the time of our visit, with limited options for eating out so a car is a big advantage. The resort is immaculately kept. Ideal for a relaxing break.
“Lovely Villa regular home from home.”
The wife and I have just returned from a ten day break Staying at Casa Gatenby. The Villa has everything you could want for a perfect break. Its furnished to a extremely high standard. Five minutes from the pool and tennis courts. Kim the owner went out of her way to make sure we had a perfect holiday. This is our second visit to Casa Gatenby and we will definitely be returning next year.
“Beautiful Villa with every home comfort.”
We had a fab stay at Casa Gatenby. The owners Kim & Martin were so helpful and their villa is beautiful and spotlessly clean. The location is superb so close to one of the nicest pools on the site. I would recommend this villa to anyone.
“Another great holiday!”
This is our third stay at Casa Gatenby and yet again we had a great time. The villa is perfect with enough room for our family of four and has everything you would need for your holiday.
We feel so lucky to have found Casa Gatenby. The villa is perfect for a family of four. It is situated right next to one of the largest pools on the complex. Our boys enjoyed the freedom of being able to swim and play tennis while we watched on from the comfort of the good sized balcony. The villa was really clean and fully equipped with good quality appliances, furniture and extras - dvds, books, bikes, bbq, deck chairs, pool floats - the list is endless. From our first enquiry about the villa we found the owners to be extreemly helpful, efficient and considerate to our needs. We described La Torre Golf Resort as a 'bubble' which seems to stand on its own amidst lots of spanish agriculture. It is very well maintained and the golf course is immaculate. There are places on the complex to eat and enjoy a drink although we wouldnt recommend the Bamboo restaurant! Our favourite was the italian but you need to reserve a table the day before during busy times as its very popular. Our children would recommend the onsite ice cream parlour which sells big tubs of very reasonably priced ice cream. We would not hesitate in recommending Casa Gatenby and definately hope to visit again next year.
“A perfect relaxing holiday!”
This has been our 4th trip to Murcia and I can guarantee Casa Gatenby is in the perfect location on this fantastic 5 Star, La Torre Golf Resort. The house is extremely well cared for, clean and directly overlooking the main pool and tennis courts. The town centre is only a 10 minute walk from the property for those dining out in the evenings. During our stay the British TV channels were a god send as we watched most the Olympics without a problem. It is also worth noting that 2012 was the hottest summer for many years in Murcia, which was not a problem as the property has airconditioning in both the bedrooms and the lounge, which is not the case with all La Torre properties. Kim, the property owner, could not have been more helpful, always available to answer any questions via Email or telephone, despite travelling across Europe at the time of our stay. My Family and I love staying at this resort and will stay at Casa Gatenby again, if it hasn't been booked! We happily recommend this accommodation to anyone, especially those with children wishing to be close to the action.
“Nice villa and holiday.”
Overall we had a nice stay at this Villa, it was clean and located close to the pool, however, the wifi wasn't working when we arrived and had to wade a day of our holiday waiting about for this to be fixed. The villa is also located on the outer perimeter of the resort right on the main resort road and over looking fields which gave off a traditional farm smell which was sometimes unpleasant. On arriving home we had £20 of our deposit kept, as the BBQ ashes hadn't been disposed of, even though cleaning the villa was included in the price and there was no mention of having to clean it nor were we provided with information on where to put the BBQ ashes. Lovely resort and the weather is excellent just not sure would recommend this property with all the others available.
“Spotless House on a fantastic resort”
My wife and i just spent a fabulous week at Casa Gatenby in September. The villa was immaculate with all the home comforts, UK TV, Air-con etc. La Torre resort was immaculate and the swimming pool outside the door was superb. A fantastic place for a quiet and relaxing break! the owners Martin and Kim were very helpful from start to finish and provided information on all aspects of the wider area. the wifi access was fantastic for us iphone users.
Excellent facilities. We hired a car which is a must if you want to explore the different beaches and surrounding areas. The accomodation was excellent. Getting about was no problem. The beaches were excellent for young children. Overall we had a fantastic holiday. We would highly recommend.
