Location description from owner

The Region of Murcia region

The Costa Calida (Warm Coast), is on the south-east Iberian coast, between the larger more developed Costa's Blanca and Del Sol. it has 250Km of beaches, beautiful countryside, several mountain area including National Parks, which, combine to provide a wonderful year-round holiday destination. There are over 300 days of sunshine a year, with temperatures averaging 32C degrees in summer and 18C degrees in winter. The warm sea temperature rarely falls below 16C degrees.
In some parts, the mountains go right down to the sea, providing breathtaking panoramas but also forming small, often sandy and secluded coves.
There are numerous beaches, some shingle, some rocky but many are sandy including the immense beaches near the port, Bahía and Bolnuevo.
The sea is usually around 5º warmer due to the 'micro climate' that Mazarrón enjoys. There are two reasons for this. One is, the mountain ranges, which surround us and secondly, the cooler water currents, which enter the Mediterranean from the Atlantic are deflected away from our coastline, leaving the water temperature unaffected and actually permitting diving all year round. The water is usually clear and the depth of visibility in many places is often around 25 - 30 metres.
Rocky outcrops provide incredible underwater scenery and apart from diving, snorkelling is extremely popular as well.
The area is less developed than some areas of Spain and therefore retains more elements of the traditional Spanish way of life.
It is an area steeped in history. The capital city of the region, Murcia, was founded in AD841.

Puerto de Mazarron

This area is mainly agricultural and produces olives, almonds, lettuces and more tomatoes than anywhere else in Spain, most tomatoes sold in UK supermarkets are grown in this locality.

Mazarron, with it's nearby Puerto de Mazarron, is a traditional Spanish town which retains a Spanish flavour and heritage. Whilst there are plentiful and varied restaurants, bars and cafes, particularly in the Puerto, it is not somewhere for someone looking for a hectic nightlife. It attracts large numbers of Spaniards during the high summer for their holidays, who prefer the area to the more widely known areas of Spain.

Puerto de Mazarron, is a year-round fishing port, and has a modern marina, completed in 2008. It’s completion was delayed by the discovery of Roman artefacts. Local dining places offer fresh locally caught fish. It is also well served by shops, and like other local towns is well endowed with shoe shops, as my wife will testify. Whilst there are small supermarkets in the Puerto, such as Arbol, larger ones are to be found on the edge of the Puerto on the main road leading to Mazarron.

Markets are plentiful and frequent. There are market-days in Mazarron, together with those in neighbouring Totana and Lorca.

The ancient city of Murcia, straddling the river, has many places of historic interest, coupled with a huge variety of boutiques, shops, restaurants and up-market department stores. It is about a 45 minute drive away, and you'll probably bypass it, if coming from Alicante airport.

Cartagena, about a 30-minute drive away, is another historic(dating back to the Romans) town and old naval base. It combines, history and architecture with lovely waterfront promenades, and excellent shopping facilities catering for all tastes and budgets. It has a great number of restaurants, many of which are traditional Spanish, but also caters for all tastes and cuisines. . Large supermarkets, such as Eroski and Carrefour, are to be found in Cartagena.

Spain is rightly renowned for its agriculture, fruit, leather and shoes.

There are numerous small villages, which one can find and explore, but Totana and Lorca are especially interesting, benefiting from history (dating back to the Romans), local cuisines, shops and markets. . A lesser known fact is that Spain still has a thriving traditional children’s industry, and many of these dedicated shops offer a beautiful alternative to the modern trend to dress children as miniature teenagers.

Spain has a large number of festivals, and details of local ones for Mazarron can be found searching the Internet

Food shopping
Within the Puerto, the El Arbol supermarket can cater for most basic needs, along with the fresh produce covered market, Plaza de Abastos, or the local Sunday market.
You’ll now find 3 new larger supermarkets at the entry to the Puerto from the main road leading from Mazarron. These are just over 10 minutes drive from our home:
"Upper" open 7 days pw, 9am to 9pm, and 9am to 2pm Sundays.
"Mercadonna" & "Lidl" open 6 days pw, normally 9am to 9pm. “Lidl” often opens on Sundays as well during the summer.

"El Arbol" in the Puerto also opens 7 days pw, typically 9am to 9pm except on Sundays 9am to 2pm.
Smaller "Dia" supermarkets are typically open 7 days pw, but normally shut for siesta and normally close at 2pm on Sundays.

Cartagena, has 2 large hypermarkets, "Eroski" and "Carrefour". Typically open 6 days pw, and frequently (irregularly) open on Sundays.
Please take note that Bank Holidays are far more frequent than in the UK, and supermarkets will often be closed as well, particularly if the holiday is religious.

“Christmas holiday”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2017

What a lovely villa to spend the holiday in. It was well equipped and very spacious. The location was fantastic and we enjoyed it tremendously

Owner's reply: Dear Guest Thank you ever so much for your kind comments. It is very much appreciated and you are most welcome to return at any time in the future. Wishing you all the best for 2017, Don

“excellent family accommodation”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

The villa was very well equipped and had everything we required. Lots of towels and extra bedding if required. Very close to the local amenities including restaurants, bars and the beach. Beautiful views all around especially from the master bedroom. Pool and hot tub were an added bonus and was cleaned during our stay.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your very kind and honest words. It is most heart-warming to know that our efforts to provide a lovely holiday home are appreciated. This is reflected by the fact that a quarter of this year’s guests were returning holiday-makers and the same of 40% of the previous year. Earlier this year we replaced all the outside furniture together with 4 new settees inside along with the introduction now of WiFi and extensive painting of the external areas. We always look to take on board feedback so we know how best to make future improvements. Thank you once again and we would love to welcome you back again at any time.

“Large spacious villa with swimming pool”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2016

Casa Craven is a large spacious villa with four bedrooms and three bathrooms which is ideal for a large group/family. The house is clean and equipped with everything you need. The outside space is ideal for sun bathing with the pool and a covered area to cool down. We have visited this house regularly for three years now and have had fantastic holidays. The sea and local bars and restaurants are close by. The owner is always helpful and welcomes feedback to improve your holiday experience. I would recommend this villa and its location for all ages. The walk to the port is pleasant as it is adjacent to the beach with many unique bars and restaurants.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much and it is nice to have our efforts appreciated

“Casa Craven, our haven”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2012

An excellent, peaceful & spacious villa. We had a fab family holiday(family of 3). We picked this villa for the size of the pool & the location, with easy access to local amenities. For us the most important thing is to have a great place to stay, space for each of us to chill out and facilities to have fun together. Casa Craven met all this and more. If you are looking for a minimalist place with no identity, then Casa Craven is not for you, it is homely & lived in, which makes for total relaxation. We were close to a Spanish bar at the end of the street 'El Palmito' & there is a small shop with a couple of bars down the street towards the sea & boat roundabout. A taxi to a Lidl or Mercadonna is quick & cheap - 6 euros. You can join the beach & walk into the puerto. You will not be disappointed with the villa or location, we all thought it was lovely& would definitely make a return trip if we get the chance in the future.
