THE LARGE TERRACE benefits from FULL SUN from around MIDDAY UNTIL SUNSET. There is a BBQ and 4 SUN LOUNGERS. It has views over the MAR MENOR, EUROPE’S LARGEST SALT WATER LAGOON in one direction and over the LEMON GROVE towards the SIERRA MINERA (the Mining Mountains) and LA MANGA CLUB in the other.

THE OUTSIDE DINING AREA has a TABLE and 6 CHAIRS.

There is an AWNING which offers protection from the sun until late in the day.

Wi-Fi INTERNET is FREE. THE NOMINAL SPEED IS 10MB/s

LOS NIETOS is predominantly a Spanish fishing village but there is a good selection of RESTAURANTS and BARS, one of which is BRITISH RUN and just 900 metres away. The most popular Spanish restaurant is El Pucho at around the same distance and also close to the bank. Perhaps the BEST RESTAURANT is ANTONIO’S at the northern end of the promenade about 2000 metres walk. A NEW RESTAURANT has opened in the village square but we have not tried it yet.

THE VILLAGE MEDICAL CENTRE is about 600 m. It is open each weekday morning until around 14:00

The PHARMACY is close to the bank.

THE CAJAMAR BANK – has a CASH POINT. Cati the Manager and Heike (who is German) both speak VERY GOOD ENGLISH and are DELIGHTFULLY HELPFUL.

THE VILLAGE SPAR SUPERMARKET offers just about everything you may need.

TWO CONVENIENCE SHOPS have an amazing variety of stock and will probably have anything you may have forgotten to bring with you.

THE TABAC sells STAMPS and ENGLISH AND GERMAN LANGUAGE PAPERS as well as CIGARETTES and an excellent selection of CIGARS.

Los Nietos is just 20 minutes from MURCIA SAN JAVIER AIRPORT (MJV).

NO CAR IS NEEDED, so, if you don't want to hire a car, we can help with airport transfers.

The apartment SUITS FAMILIES & CHILDREN ALL AGES.

LOCAL TRAVEL - We do not keep a car in Spain. We use the LOCAL NARROW GAUGE RAILWAY to travel the 30 minutes TO CARTAGENA for less than 2 euros with a 10 trip ticket. In the CITY we use the BUSES at 63 euro cents a trip which includes the retail park at ESPACIO MEDITERRANEO about 10 Km out of town. The train TERMINUS in the city is close to both LIDL and CARREFOUR SUPERMARKETS.

CANTE DE MINERAS, The FLAMENCO FESTIVAL, LA UNIÓN is in August. We believe this is the premier festival in Spain if not the World. CHECK IT OUT ON YOU TUBE or in real life.

September sees the ROMANS AND CARTHAGINIANS Festival in Cartagena - will there be some elephants this year? They could even use the Sierra Minera as a substitute for the Alps.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET THOUGH, we have friends and contacts and will be more than happy to help you to arrange a holiday to suit your wishes as ever we are able. We have access to more than 170 properties close to the Mar Menor.

Simple pleasures at Villa Cristal No 12 include watching the Spanish equivalent of the RED ARROWS practicing over the Mar Menor or hunting sea snails for paella

THE VILLA CRISTAL CURE:

STAGE 1 - Ask yourself what time it is.

If the answer is - 'I don't know.' - the cure is beginning to work.

STAGE 2 - Ask yourself what day it is.

If the answer is - 'I don't know.' - the cure is definitely working.

STAGE 3 - When you find that you neither know nor care what time or day it is,

The VILLA CRISTAL CURE HAS WORKED.

Once you're cured, you can get on with really enjoying your holiday.

Combined with the fresh air, the weather and the fantastic choice of brilliant fish and food generally, you can return home ready to face all the challenges offered by daily life. But don't forget to take some sand for your shoes to remind you of Los Nietos.

PLEASE GIVE US A TRY.

The Region of Murcia region

Murcia Region could be called Europe's Vegetable Garden. Depending on the season you will see a tremendous variety of produce growing in the fields. Wine is grown in the north and fishing is important on the coast.
If you view the Murcia plain from high up you will realise that it is an enormous volcanic crater. Minerals were important until the 1960's and the associated work attracted people from all over Spain. As a result, La Unin, the centre of the Sierra Minera, Mountains of Mines, became a melting pot for flamenco and Spanish culture. La Unin still hosts the most prestigious Flamenco Festival in Spain each August. A guitar chord known as the Cartagenera has resulted.
Murcia city has the most impressive cathedral and many museums and other attractions making it well worth a visit. Investing in a guided tour will pay dividends.
Cartagena has some brilliant museums, the best from the point of view of children is probably ARQUA, the museum of Underwater Archaeology. There is an exhibit showing some of The Odyssey Mercedes treasure - 14 tonnes of gold and silver raised from a depth of 1500 metres and the subject of a long long legal battle. There is a tremendous selection of hands on exhibits - the whole family could achieve their GCSE in Underwater Archaeology in two hours!!! But don't forget the shops in Calle Mayor and Calle del Carmen or out at Espacio Mediterraneo. The unusual aspect of Cartagena is that most parts are accessible by bus for a very cheap fare and the rest is easy to walk round.

As a general guide, if the sun is shining and you can keep out od any wind which may be blowing

Los Nietos

Los Nietos is a very old (arguably more than 4000 years old) fishing village. The population is around 90% Spanish who are permanent residents. The village has pretty much everything you need within easy walking distance including a narrow gauge train to Cartagena through the Sierra Minera.
The Mar Menor is the largest salt water lagoon in Europe, it is about 150 metres from Villa Cristal No 12. It is both shallow and safe. It is also warmer than the Mediterranean. A shore Fishing Licence is easy and cheap to get and then you could catch bass, grey mullett or guilt-head bream as well as some other types of bream. There is some water at the mouth of the rambla close to Villa Cristal where fartet fish live. They are some extremely endangered type of tooth carp which tolerates an vast difference in water salinity, but please don't diturb them
La Lengua de la Vaca (The Cow's Tongue) headland close to us. A natural reserve is just the other side of the dry river bed. In spring you will hear nightingales and may see bee eaters. For the serious ornithologist there is much to be seen in the way of indigenous species and during the spring and autumn migrations. Eagles and even Ospreys may be seen.
If you have an interest in archaeology, you may be lucky to find signs of the Iberian occupation of Los Nietos in the form of pottery shards if you walk the fields. Signs of the later Carthaginian and Roman periods can also be seen.
The promenade is about 2 Km and has a British run Viva Bar at the far end where the kite and windsurfers have a wonderful time.
Children will enjoy the beach which has a climbing frame and loads of sand. Older children may wish to try chasing the sea snails but warn them - they are very fast - a few make an interesting addition to a home-made seafood paella.
There is an all-weather football pitch and tennis court close to the Medical Centre - don't forget your EHICs.
There is a truism - You must have some clouds for a really good sunset and you may be lucky to see some spectacular sunsets.
