Location description from owner
The Region of Murcia region
Due to the Costa Calida's ('Warm Coast') microclimate and average 320 days of sunshine, the villa is ideal for a superb, relaxing holiday for couples and families in all seasons. Our villa is a golfer's haven too as there are many excellent golf courses within easy reach, including Alto Real (45 minutes drive), La Manga (approx. 1 hour), Fuente Alamo (which is 18 holes and at 6.5 kms long, is recognized as one of the best and more luxurious in the South East of Spain and just 25 minutes away approx.). However the nearest one is only about 15 minutes away by car.
The average year round temperature is 20º and November and Christmas can be celebrated on the beach! In the hardest winter it's difficult to find frost, and snow only occasionally tops the higher mountains like Sierrra Espuña where there is a great variety of flora and fauna, including eagles, wild boar many other smaller animals with many trees, bushes, herbs and wild flowers.
In this national park it is possible to enjoy, hiking, fishing, bird watching, cycling, hang gliding, rock climbing or just sit outside one of the bars that are dotted about and enjoy the clean air and wonderful views.
Protected areas provide a wealth of animal life. For the hiker, there are fifteen categorized walks of varying lengths but there are numerous other routes you can take to discover wildlife, herbs and plants and admire spectacular views.
The region of Murcia is a major producer of fruits, vegetables, and flowers for Spain and the rest of Europe. It is mainly a warm region which has made it very suitable for agriculture.
The old mining areas also provide interesting excursions with many of the original works and buildings still standing.

Puerto de Mazarron
Within a 2 minute walk of the villa down an incline, are a very good Spanish restaurant, plus a lovely English pub/restaurant which enjoys super seaviews and offers themed nights, good value English food including roasts and breakfasts, weekend entertainment including live music, Sky TV, darts, pool table and free Wi-Fi Internet access, along with a Pharmacy, public telephone, a cafe with quiz and karaoke nights plus a small quiet, friendly cafe/bar and a larger bar (all information is current)
Diving, snorkelling, horse riding, bowling, tennis, boules, karting and windsurfing are among the many activities one can participate in locally when not "chilling out"!
There is even an enclosed 'Winter Pool' nearby that can be used out of season for a nominal charge
Mazarron itself is bathed in history and with numerous beautiful beaches and hidden coves, varied countryside, the friendly people and healthy diet make Mazarrón and the Costa Cálida paradise for holidays.
The weather in summer in Mazarron is typically very hot with little to no rainfall and temperatures up to 38c, but fortunately on most days there is a cooling sea breeze. Average winter temperatures are around 20c and the climate has been described by the World Health Organisation as one of being the best in the world, especially good for sufferers of arthritis.
The sea is usually around 5º warmer due to the unique 'micro climate' that Mazarrón enjoys. Windsurfing, sailing, diving, swimming, whatever your pleasure, Mazarron's coast provides it all.
The Port of Mazarron (a year round fishing port) with its new marina, shops, restaurants, cafes and bars is around a 15 minute walk, depending on pace!. Many of the local restaurants offer freshly caught fish and in one in particular, you can choose your own, watch it being cooked and then it's served up for you to enjoy! Less than 5 minutes' drive, is the inland town of Mazarron with its ornate Town Hall, markets, shops and Medical centre. The historic city of Cartagena, about 25 minute's drive away, with its naval port, military museum, huge new out-of-town shopping and eating mall Parque Mediterraneo (with masses of free parking and designer shops), and hypermarkets Eroski (complete with McDonald's!) and Carrefour, is full of history and architecture with lovely waterfront promenades, and excellent shopping facilities to suit all tastes and budgets. It has a large number of restaurants, many of which are traditional Spanish ones, but it also caters for a variety of diners . Further afield at Vera (approx. an hour and a quarter away) is the 'Parc Aquatico' (water park) for a great, fun-filled day out.
Going slightly further afield and inland, you can find places that have remained unchanged for years and are unspoilt by tourism. There are thermal baths at Mula and Roman remains in Lorca. There are also weekly markets in Puerto de Mazarron (Sundays), Mazarron Town (Saturdays) and Totana (Wednesdays). Buses, coaches and trains are also available to link up with towns and cities. There are numerous small villages, which one can find and explore, but Totana and Lorca are especially interesting, steeped in history (dating back to the Romans), local cuisines, shops and markets.
We have also developed our own comprehensive information/reference book, with all the details our guests will need in order to have a good holiday and covering, 'Useful Telephone Numbers' to 'Places to Visit', (which we would politely ask, stays in the villa for other guests' use.)

“Great weather to swim in the lovely pool and utilise the terraces but house condition tired.”
The villa 's facilities were as described but their condition was tired and not what was expected. The most concerning were the large cracks in the walls (inside and out) and there was a single bed that kept collapsing (apparently happened just the week before so no time to replace) plus other worn out items and smaller issues. We had a great time in the villa with lovely late summer weather to utilise the pool and terraces. The size and facilities were perfect for our family of five. The immediate area was not to our taste but with a great beach not too far away and a lovely seaside promenade, so a short drive resolved this. Booking the holiday was simple although after this there were some communication issues that tarnished the run up to the holiday which was a shame - I travel every week with my job and this was the third week of our multiple location holiday so I have something to compare to.
In response to this surprising Review, we would like to say that, ultimately we will be leaving it to prospective guests to decide for themselves whether they will be taking 12 delighted guests’ 5* Reviews into account when considering booking, as opposed to this one. However, there are specific things that have been stated that do need addressing. We are bemused to have our property described as “tired” as not only did it undergo a mini makeover (around 6 months ago) by our professional servicing company whose advice we followed in full, but also up to this year we have had some movement over the years (not that unusual in Spanish built properties), which means that our place has been decorated at least yearly, so it is always bright and fresh as our photographs show and other guests have commented. The mainly superficial cracks to which reference is being made, are EXTERNAL ones only and are silicone filled, (aside from longstanding ones in a wardrobe which again, affect nobody and the advice has been to leave them alone!) They are regularly inspected (we were out there just a week after this guest),purely cosmetic and have rightly never given any cause for concern to our many guests staying. (On the advice of our builder, they will be more permanently dealt with, once we are 100% sure the ‘settlement’ has ceased fully - which it's now looking it has) The single bed did not collapse but rather, in the guest’s own words in an email sent whilst there, “son has been using this bed and it has been ok to use but the slats have needed repositioning”. (No other bed-related complaints after this one either) It is a shame there were perceived communication problems, because we went out of our way to inform and explain things as we do with all our guests (other Reviews bear this out), but we cannot insist guests read the paperwork they are sent where the information they require is already in it! In fact, WE had a problem receiving things at times from this guest, which meant spending a lot more time than usual helping them (I have just counted 33 emails between us, unprecedented!) This guest was offered a ‘prompt booking’ discount of over 10% when first booking, yet there was a delay of 2 days before paying a deposit. We and our guests (many of whom are ‘returning’ ones), still maintain that for what we offer and our location, the price is excellent value and one has to bear in mind that ours is not a brand new villa and this is reflected in the price. To sum up, these are the actual words of this guest from his email sent to us 4 days into their stay... “Hello. Overall the accommodation has been great”!
Pictures and reviews are one thing but the reality can be very different. Not here, the booking proccess and the feedback from the owners was always very good. The actual holiday was very good, the drive from the airport and the lovely scenery over the mountains made it worthwhile. The weather was perfect averaging about 22C, this being so the moment we arrived the boys were in the pool and in it every day after that. The villa was perfect for us and it was very comfortable everything being on hand, the views from the rooftop were great and sitting out in the evening was perfect. The New Royal Pub down the hill was a very friendly place to go to. The main town 15 minutes walk away was really good a lot of restuarants and tappas bars which we enjoyed very much and sitting in town in the evening was great just watching the Spanish familys' stroll by. We as a family thoroughly enjoyed the villa and the surroundings and always felt very safe especially having young children. I would recomend it and would go back again.
“Perfect location for a great holiday”
We had a really good time with my partner and our son, during our stay at Villa Mazarron. The house is comfortable and very well equipped, with beautiful sea views - we really enjoyed drinking our morning coffee sitting at the pool in the sunshine, looking at the sea. The villa is only a few minutes walk from the beach and from bars and restaurants and also really close the the centre of the Puerto, so it's an ideal location for a lovely holiday. Communication with the owners and the local caretakers was smooth and easy, we had all the information we needed, including very detailed driving instructions from the airport. Would definitely recommend it to everyone!
“Fantastic place, great for all ages. Wonderful location!”
After getting married in England we drove down to Mazzaron in October. This was our honeymoon / holiday with our 3 children. What a fantastic place it was! Over looking the sea, close to the beautiful port and shops etc. The girls absolutely loved the pool! We would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about holidaying in Spain. The photos of the Villa donor do it justice and the port and town are really nice. We had several trips out to various local sites and beaches etc we cannot wait to go back in 2013! Thankyou to Caroline who arranged everything wonderfully and also to David who looked after us and gave some good local advice when we arrived!
we really had a fantastic holiday at this villa! Very clean and tidy, great communication between everyone. The area was fantastic and very safe for our little 2 year old boy! We will certainly be booking again and again!! Would recommend this villa to everyone!! Suits all kinds of people! Thank you very much!!!
“Wonderful villa, stunning views over the Med and your own pool!”
Villa Mazarron is the perfect base to explore the region of Murcia. It's easy to find and only 40 - 50mins drive from San Javier Airport. The villa has stunning views out over the Med which are even better from the roof top terrace. The pool was a godsend for the kids in the hot afternoons and also very private. Overall the villa was very clean and Barry was on hand to sort any issues. The best beaches we found were at Isla Plana (5mins drive) and Calnegre (30mins drive) but the beach at Bolnuevo was also good. There is a great wee Spanish Bar half way down the hill where we had paella which was as good as we have eaten. There are a couple of big supermarkets in Puerto de Mazarron but for fresh food give them a miss and go to the daily indoor market in Puerto de Mazarron for fish, fruit, veg, bread etc, for half the price you pay in the supermarket. We took a trip to Murcia for the day which is a beautiful city but very hot even at night, it was 98F when we left at 8pm. There is also a good water park at Vera, which is about an hours drive south towards Almeria.
