Beautiful villa, in a beautiful area
About the Owner
Our villa is owned by 2 families, the Davies and the Howlands. We bought it as an investment and a second home in 2007. We don't get to spend nearly as much time there as we would like, but find it one of the most relaxing places to be when we are there. We use an English couple to look after the villa, Sue and Terry Brooks, who live on Phase 2 of the resort. They are great at organising hire cars or lifts to and from the airport or suggesting a local restaurant. We like to be as flexible as possible with our rentals, as we appreciate that flight costs vary considerably, depending on your departure/return dates. We've put lots of photos on the website, but if you need any more, please ask. We hope that if you do choose our villa for your holiday, you enjoy it as much as we do!

Beautiful villa, in a beautiful area
We had a wonderful time at the villa and fuente Alamo it's self 6 of us went all adults as a big family holiday and we all enjoyed it, we had our own car as drove to Spain which was an experience it's worth having a car or hiring one, we went on many days out to Cartagena, Murcia, LA manga, puerto mazzoron, bendidorn and much more we spent a few evening at the spainnard inn that was a 5minute walk down the road which was very nice and they were very welcoming, I'd recommend staying here to anyone and I'd definitely go back in the future. The villa was beautiful beyond expectations.
We had a great week at this villa. We travelled as a family with 3 children, 1 older teen and 2 under 5's. As such we really didn't seek out nightlife but wanted somewhere safe and relaxing, with a nearby place to take advantage of having a live-in babysitter!
The resort remains extremely quiet and our neighbours appeared to be residents rather than holidaymakers.
The villa itself is enclosed within lockable gates, which was perfect for our young family. The access to the shared pool is mere steps from the patio area, again through a locked gate. Should you have older children it would be perfect to sit on the loungers within the garden area and supervise your children in the pool.
The villa itself is spacious, with 3 separate bathrooms, and the air conditioning a welcome relief from the hot sun. The TV in the villa shows most Freeview UK channels, and although no internet connection, we all managed to get great 4G signal and wifi was free at the nearby bar/restaurant.
The resort is huge and whilst the nearest bar/restaurant (The Spaniard Inn) and children's playground was close by, we did drive often and would really recommend car hire. There is no supermarket on site, the nearest being in Fuente Alamo and we did find that we really needed a good half an hour in the car to get to any major towns/cities. The dual carriageways/motorways are fantastic and well signed, we easily found our way to Murcia, Cartagena, Los Alcazares and La Manga.
We did find it difficult initially to get to the villa, the coordinates through Google Maps seem to want to bring you through a private road, after our initial misadventure, we found it easier to head on to the RM-F2 and leave at the exit for Fuente Alamo Oeste (Exit 21), where Hacienda del Alamo was signposted.
All communication with Caroline was prompt and efficient, as was the payment process. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa again for those wanting a peaceful retreat in the sun!
From the Owner
“We looked at several resorts in the area and Hacienda del Alamo is by far the nicest in many ways. It is beautifully landscaped and each property has plenty of outside space. The surrounding area is very rural and peaceful. The coast is just a short drive and the beaches are beautiful - the beach at Los Alcazares is ideal for small children as the sea is very warm and shallow and Mazarron has lots of restaurants overlooking the beach.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
The resort is very close to the Sierra Espuna National Park, Spain's largest nature reserve, ideal for walking holidays, mountain biking or just enjoying the tranquility. The Mar Menor, an inland sea, is renowned for sailing, scuba diving, kite-boarding and watersports generally.

The nearest airport, San Javier (Murcia) Airport (MJV) is only 20 minutes' drive from the resort alternatively, Alicante Airport is 1 hour's drive. Airport transfers can be arranged on request. Car hire is strongly recommended to get around both the resort and the area.
The property is just 5 minutes drive to Fuente Alamo, with a wide choice of restaurants and bars, a large, well-stocked supermarket and banks and a large market on Saturday mornings. Murcia is just 25 minutes drive away and Cartagena with plenty of shops and restaurants is just a 20 minute drive.

“The property is within walking distance of the commercial centre and cycling distance of the Clubhouse. Although the pool is shared, our villa is right opposite the pool, so you can easily sit on the private patio but still supervise the children.”
