Stretching over three floors AND it has it's own private roof solarium, front garden as well as front and back terraces.

The house comfortably sleeps 6 adults plus a baby in the cot provided and is is ideal for families with young children as it has been made to be very child friendly, with lots of equipment including stair-gates fitted top and bottom of the marble staircase, a travel cot, bed guard, high chair, potty and even kiddies loo seat, changing mat, toys, DVD's and much more.

The house is very well equipped, furnished to a very high standard with a brand new fitted kitchen installed in Summer 2015.

Pay-as-you-go high-speed Wifi available for the convenience of our guests for either all of part of your stay - a very economical alternative to buying multiple data packages for each member of the family! Please ask for prices.

The whole house is very well equipped and comfortably furnished. There are three spacious bedrooms in total, two are twin rooms and the third is a large master double. Two of the bedrooms have private balconies, whilst the third has views out over the rear terrace. All with large fitted or Ikea wardrobes, Ikea drawers and very powerful remote control ceiling fans,. The master bedroom has a double bed, large fitted wardrobe, Ikea drawers, full-length mirror and a safe for your valuables within the concrete floor of the wardrobe - very secure! It also has stairs leading off the private balcony up to the very large roof solarium above.

A fully equipped newly fitted Ikea kitchen opens onto the private rear terrace. The house also has a very large, newly furnished (2017) living/dining area with large corner sofa. There are two bathrooms, one is a shower room, complete with a loo and wash basin, situated on the ground floor, therefore easily accessible for guests staying in the ground floor bedroom. The second bathroom is upstairs and is very large with a loo, wash basin, shower and a large corner bath.

We have private outdoor terraces at the front and back of the house and a private sunny south-facing front garden complete with sunbeds and a table and chairs on the front terrace, shaded by a large roll-out Toldos (awning) to the front of the house if you need it. There is also a large private roof solarium with sunbeds, chairs, BBQ & views to the mountains.

The complex's secure gated gardens accommodate two large pools, both with separate children's pools, ideal for family holidays.

El Divino complex is ideally located at just 5 minutes drive from Murcia MJV airport or 45 minutes drive from Alicante ALC airport.

We are in a very a peaceful area, just 10 minutes stroll from the beautiful Mar Menor beach and just a 5 minute stroll walk to plenty of local bars, shops, supermarkets and the 525 Plaza with it's many fabulous restaurants. The old town of Los Alcazares is just a 15 minute walk away or you can catch the mini train there and/or back that operates throughout the Summer months.

You most definitely do not need to hire a car if you do not wish to as everything you need is well within walking distance.

Mar Menor: The gently sloping shallow waters of the Mar Menor mean it is much warmer than the Mediterranean, making it safer for young children as it is very placid and there is very good visibility across the water.You can walk out for many metres with the warm water still only lapping your thighs and no big waves, no tides or strong currents, so you can relax and enjoy your day at the beach. With the many cafes and bars dotted along the beach it's a great way to spend the day and soak up the sun. Every kind of water sport is available!

The mineral-rich water of the Mar Menor is renowned for its health-giving properties and there are nearby thermal baths which have existed since Roman times. The very salty water in the Mar Menor lagoon (San Pedro round to La Manga) is supposed to be very good to bathe in, especially for skin conditions. Many people come to the northern end of the Mar Menor to cover themselves in the black mud from the salinas, which is supposed to be full of all sorts of nutrients.

Flights and Transfers: Costa Calida is now more accessible than ever with numerous low cost airlines flying into both Murcia (San Javier MJV) & Alicante (ALC) from all over the UK and Europe. Fly to Murcia from all over the UK & EIRE on the numerous low cost carriers, and with the resort and complex only a 5 minute taxi ride away form MJV airport, you won't waste time on lengthy transfers to your end destination.

Shopping/Leisure: Los Alcazares was named after the palaces that stood in medieval times and is still un-spoilt, retaining much of its original Spanish charm. Most of the narrow streets lead directly to the 7 km, sandy Blue Flag beach. There are plenty of restaurants and beach bars providing a wide range of cuisine. Los Alcazares offers a non-package-tour environment. With its wonderful all year round climate it has something for all seasons. The town's market days are Tuesday and Saturday when a wide variety of goods are available. There are also many modern high street shops and shopping malls within easy reach. The beautiful historic city of Murcia, is only 30 minutes by car, with its many squares & narrow streets. The famous historical city of Cartagena is only 15 minutes drive away. Both are well worth exploring for their shops, architecture and history. A 15-20 minutes drive away is the fabulous Zenia Boulevard shopping centre, open 365 days a year! All the best shops and some fabulous restaurants. A 10 minute drive away we has Dos Mares shopping complex and it's lovely shops and restaurants and a bowling alley! A 40 minute drive will take you to Elche's vast shopping complex, where you can buy locally-made shoes (only available from Bond Street couture houses) at vastly reduced prices.

About Andrea Fairman-Smith

We live in the beautiful county of Derbyshire, a stone's throw from East Midlands Airport

Andrea Fairman-Smith purchased this house in 2005

Why Andrea Fairman-Smith chose Los Alcázares

When I first viewed this property I fell in love with it! It was perfect for my family in size and location. The pool is ideal for children and families and the house is very secure for small children. I also wanted to be able to walk everywhere - to the beach, supermarket and shops, bars and restaurants and not have to rely on hiring a car. This property is perfect for that exact reason.

What makes this house unique

The house is in a lovely family orientated complex & only a few minutes walk from all amenities & the beach, which meant not having to rely on hiring a car - Ideal with the airport only being a 5 minute taxi ride away - Perfect! :-)

Los Alcazares pronounced 'los-alcatha-res' is situated in the Murcia region of Spain's Costa Calida. The town sits on the western shore of the Mar Menor, a huge saltwater lagoon separated from the Med by a 22 km strip of land called La Manga. The area enjoys ave 320 days of sunshine each year to it's blue flag beaches. Bars, cafes & restaurants provide drinks, tapas, meals & entertainment. The warm water of the Mar Menor (ave 1-3 degrees warmer than the Med) helps make the town a paradise for bathers & water sports enthusiasts. The fertile countryside keeps the local markets well stocked bundles of fresh produce so the local restaurants are packed with wonderful fresh food. The area offers boundless opportunities for sports & other activities. No less than 7 golf courses can be found within a short drive, with 2 new ones under construction within the town itself. Not to mention the world renowned La Manga Club only 15min drive away. 'Copyright Los-Alcazares.com - Used with permission.'

Other Activities: Cycles can be hired locally for a small fee (inc childrens & even 3 wheelers!!)

Golf: Compared to other villa's for rent on the La Manga complex, this offers very good value for money, saving 40% in some cases. With La manga only a short drive away, and with it's own 3 golf courses, state of the art tennis complex, casino and fine restaurants (all open to non-residents), this is a cost-effective alternative place to stay, with no compromise in the standard of the accommodation.

There are no less than seven golf courses (four of international standard) well within 30 minutes drive, & an impressive 23 courses within the CostaBlanca/Costa Calida coastline which cater for all handicap levels.

Another great holiday enjoyed by all

  • 5 of 5

Casa Lola was exactly as described, had new kitchen since our last stay. It has everything you need for a comfortable holiday and the arrival pack is most welcome after your flight. El Divino complex with its swimming pool is ideally situated close to the main area with supermarkets and plenty of reastaurants. Our favourite eateries are The Asian Star and Veni but there is plenty of choose and they are all good. Two new eateries are the Tipsy Thistle and Cornelia Garcia which are both close to the Supermarcado for a snack and a drink. We don't use the beach but we like to walk along the promenade, stop for a drink at one if the many cafes, and people watch. We would recommend Casa Lola to anyone, we will be back.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the house and the way everything had been thought of to make anyone staying there to feel at home and it really helps knowing you do not have to pack heavy towels as even beach towels are provided.

Excellent accommodation would certainly stay there again.

Very well located

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely holiday the house is very well equipped & in a central location you don't actually need a car. We were delighted with the welcome food pack as we arrived late & all the grocery stores were closed. There is an extensive list in the house of places to eat & places to visit, we tried several of the recommended restaurants & all were as recommended. We have one complaint & that is there is no wifi, it made things rather difficult for us at times. Overall this is a great house for families

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments, I am very pleased that you both enjoyed your stay so much. It is such a bonus being so centrally located and the fact that guests do not need to bother with having to hire a car to get around. And the free of charge welcome pack is always a welcome sight for arriving travellers. I do take on board your comments regarding the Wifi, however I had actually installed this into the house just three days after you departed (as I was there myself the week following your stay). This installation had been planned for quite a while, so now my guests also have the benefit of internet access if they require it. Hopefully this will go on to ensure many more happy guests in the future.
