About Richard Ingram

My wife and I live in the UK, with our two young children. We both work, but love to escape to our apartment in Santiago de la Ribera to relax and recharge our batteries.

We love to relax in the sun and catch up on our reading and the kids to love to swim in the pool and the sea. We all love to eat the fantastic Spanish food!

Richard Ingram purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Richard Ingram chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We bought our apartment in Satiago and the village remains very Spanish, with lovely Spanish bars and restaurants, all serving tapas and other traditional food.

It is also quite residential, which makes it a lovely place to walk in the evening and nice and quiet.

The beach is very clean and shallow which makes it ideal for our children and peaceful and relaxing for us.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is only one of ten in the complex, that is accessed directly from the road, allowing a car to be parked outside the front door, thereby making food shopping very easy - this is not offered by many other properties in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We appreciated the quality of the furnishings, equipment, bedding etc. An attractive apartment, good layout and a nice large terrace. You seem to have the best plot on the complex. We may well consider returning another time' - Dennis, Birmingham.

'Thank you very much, your apartment was every thing we cuold have asked for and more, we had a fabulous time' - Susan, Oct 2011

'What a fabulous apartment, very clean, comfortable and spacious with all the little things included that make the difference. The wonderful terrace was fantastic, very handy for watching the children around the pool but also great for sunbathing due to having the sun all day long. Hopefully we will return soon' - David, London.

'The apartment was first class with a lot more included than we realised' - Tony, Leicester

'We had 2 fantastic weeks and we really appreciated all the home comforts' - David, July 2009.
