Fantastic family holiday
About the Owner
Hi, we are Bill and Karen and we own the villa with our best friends Pat and Jackie. We purchased the villa together as we fell in love with it when we were on holiday and, lo and behold, it came up for sale. We have now owned the villa since 2008 and we never have had any complaints/ concerns about the villa and surroundings.
We try to visit our home as much as possible, holidaying with Pat and Jackie and with both our families, as we love the relaxed atmosphere and we have had some great times and a lot of laughs. Every year we try and improve the villa and facilities to ensure anyone that stays has a great time. We always ask for feedback on your stay and suggested improvements and these suggestions definitely help us to keep our home as we like it and, we hope, you will like too.

Fantastic family holiday
Myself, my partner, my children, their partners, and my grandchildren spent a week at the villa (a week wasn't long enough!) 11 of us altogether and what a fab time we all had, none of us wanted to leave.The villa was very clean, spacious and well equipped. There are many bars and restaurants within walking distance. Customer service was second to none. I will definitely recommend to my friends
A chance to unwind!
We arrived at Murcia airport exhausted, frazzled and looking for some much needed R&R. We were met by a smiley, ebullient, full of fun couple, Bill and Karen. Eager to please, nothing was too much trouble, just sit back and relax and welcome to our Spanish home was their greeting.
The villa is set in a quiet urban area, well furnished, clean and tidy. The pool and the surrounding area offered some respite from the midday sun and to top up the wife's tan respectively. The exclusivity of rental we requested meant no fighting for sun loungers :)
Bars and restaurants are within easy walking distance, and the staff appeared friendly, attentive and spoke far better English than my school boy Spanish!
If you want to see more of the area, then a hire car is a must, and this was easily arranged by Bill with one of his contacts.
Would we go back? Absolutely.

A fantastic property in a beautiful spot!
This property was just what we wanted, so much so we visit every year with family. It is as described on the website and is very clean and well maintained throughout the whole of the property. You can tell the owners take great pride in its appearance! The location is quite and peacefully, perfect for relaxing in and getting away from the busy life myself and my husband have with work. The pool is a fantastic size and was provided with complimentary inflatables for all ages. In fact the property and location caters for all. Just a short walk away is a selection of restaurants and bars - one of my favourites being Lisa's and the new roof top bar that overlooks the area. Perfect for sipping cocktail into the night.
I would highly recommends this property and willed faintly visit again!
I stayed here the first week of June with my family and had a great time. The villa was very nice and spacious and very homely. The rooms are all good sizes and beds are comfortable. The pool was a great size and a lot bigger than many of the other villa's pools, we had great fun with all the inflatables. There is also a full size table tennis table in the villa which was a great extra touch to the villa.
The surrounding area is very nice and less than a 5 minute walk to a row of bars and restaurants which are all reasonably priced and great food. There are also more bars and restaurants about a 20 minute walk away which we went to a few times. Overall a great holiday and can't wait to go back next year!
From the Owner
“We were on holiday with friends in Campoverde just for a relaxing week's holiday. We just found the location so quiet and peaceful. It is not like your typical Spanish location. The villa is in a Spanish 'urbanisation' and people live there throughout the year. It is just so easy to relax there and enjoy the 'real' Spanish pace of life, 'slow. We weren't looking to by a villa but Villa De Los Amigos came on the market when we were on holiday and it was only 50 metres away form where we were staying. We got the keys whilst we were there and had a good look around. We saw that it had loads of potential. Although a new property it looked tired and 'un-loved'. We thought we could make this into a great holiday home for large family parties to enjoy. Our offer was accepted, what a holiday!!!”

From the Owner
“The villa is very spacious and is great for large parties. You can all enjoy having fun together but there is also plenty of opportunity to have your 'own space as the villa has 3 levels. We have a large pool with a large selection of pool toys and games for the children. We also have a full size table-tennis table, x-box and . There is plenty to keep the children busy whilst you are relaxing by the pool. The villa suits parties that enjoy staying in the villa and relaxing. We tend to stay by the pool and relax for most of the day. The villa is very private and quiet. In the evenings there are plenty of local bars and restaurants to visit. Again because this is a residential area it is not the typical Spanish holiday resort atmosphere. It is busy and lively but not until 4am!!!”
