About Netty Kitson

We live near Belbroughton in Worcestershire with close proximity to B'ham airport which gives us the facility to fly to our villa far too often !

My husband and family ( 2 daughters) have long happy associations with La Manga having owned since 1997. We purchased ER 43 in 2001 and owned next door from 1997 and permanently moved to El Rancho 43 in 2004.

We spend 10 weeks approx. enjoying golf, tennis and coastal walking. We have fond fun memories of happy celebrations - 21st's, 50th's, hen parties ( next year a ruby W.A !!.) We visit annually with our 3 'grandies' (soon to be 3 more in a few months, with twins on the way). Holidays spent with the family are particularly special.

Our Visits get better and better as we still continue to find different new beaches and restaurants. The pleasure we get from sitting on our balcony sipping wine and enjoying the fab sunsets and views continue. We love it more and more ..perhaps it's something to do with retirement !

We enjoy helping all our clients and over the years have arranged many 'tailor made' holidays to suit individual bookings. We hope you enjoy La Manga as much as we continue to do so.

Netty Kitson purchased this villa in 2001

Why Netty Kitson chose Cartagena

El Rancho 43 is situated in a quiet location but is close to many of the facilities. The villa overlooks the gardens and has a small front garden with olive and spruce trees. The panoramic views from the terraces were the selling point !

The villa is in an elevated position but sheltered and the south facing aspect offers daily sun and sunset views. We love the fact that within a 5minute walk you can see the sea and the beautiful natural coastline for miles and miles.

The property offers good accommodation with 4 bedrooms and is easy to maintain and offers an instant holiday...no fuss and easy to live in. Easy access from the front and rear gardens with a side pathway to the pool, gardens is a bonus.

The immediate pa

Bellaluz is15 mins walk away via the gardens and foot paths. The beach is close by with the road opposite the villa leading down to coastal paths to private coves and to La Cala Beach and restaurant

What makes this villa unique

Easy to find and private parking right in front of the villa. No steep steps and easy to access from the front to the front door and lower terrace to the garden and pool. In fact the best access of all the villas in this area.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect family villa so close to the pool with great facilities and well presented. Clean and comfortable with everything you need . Lovely gardens where we could watch the kids playing. Also good for walking to local shops, restaurants in Bel a Luz square. Good coastal walking is close by with a downhill stroll to La Cala Beach only 10 mins away.

Still a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in ER43 two years ago in July so this time it was just like coming home; walking out on to the terrace and drinking in the view of the pool, resort and Mar Menor in the distance is just the best tonic. Customer service and attention to detail from both the owner and the property manager in resort is excellent and very thoughtful in order to make your stay enjoyable. The resort facilities are close at hand, many within walking distance. Reserving a tennis court was easy thanks to the staff at the centre who were very helpful and friendly. The supermarket in Bellaluz Square is very convenient, stocked everything we needed and the staff always make you feel welcome. Great to be able to eat al fresco at El Bistro in Bellaluz Square (a favourite for evenings and breakfast/coffee) and also at Luigi's in Las Lomas. We enjoyed a day out to Cartagena - good for shopping and photography (attractive architecture, monuments and the Roman Amphitheatre) as well as a lazy lunch by the marina. All in all, ER43 is the perfect base, whether you're unwinding as we were or looking for something more action packed.

A Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to La Manga Club and El Rancho and it did not disappoint. The owners were very prompt in making contact following my enquiry, they kept in touch with helpful information and advice both before and after our arrival and made us feel very welcome. Directions from the airport were spot on which was much appreciated as we arrived late in the evening. The location of the villa is superb and so close to the pool - perfect for a lazy relaxing holiday. The accommodation itself is spacious, beautifully clean, comfortable and well equipped. There are several restaurants in the vicinity of the villa but our favourites were El Bistro in nearby Bellaluz Square and Luigi's at Las Lomas. We were very grateful to the owners for sharing their lovely home with us. All of their photographs and pictures create a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere and we didn't want to leave.

An amazing family holiday for 3 generations

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing family holiday in this beautiful villa. Excellent location, spotlessly clean and extremely helpful owners. We have lovely memories of evenings sipping vino on the balcony taking in the amazing views and will definitely be back. I can't recommend this villa highly enough.
