About Nigel Farrar

I live in Cheshire, UK with my wife, 2 teenage daughters and pet labrador. We don't spend as much time on holiday in Spain as we would like to at the moment but hope this will change in the near future.

Nigel Farrar purchased this villa in 2008

Why Nigel Farrar chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We fell in love with the wide open spaces of the Murcia region as a whole and this resort in particular. The stunning mountain ranges provide a fantastic back-drop to the mile after mile of olive groves, fruit trees and vegetable crops. The lack of high rise and high density development is very refreshing. This area is Spain's best kept secret!

What makes this villa unique

It enables us to get away from it all for a peaceful, relaxing holiday whilst still being within easy reach of any activity we could wish to enjoy. We can be walking through the front door within half an hour of leaving the airport, ready to unwind. It is very much 'home from home'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to write to thank you for the use of your Villa over the past 2 weeks. My Wife and my three girls had a superb time and a very comfortable stay indeed. The villa was very nice, very clean and all as you said it would be. Many thanks again Nigel



Hi Nigel, We are just back from Hacienda Del Alamo and we had a great time.Your villa is lovely and we all really enjoyed your pool. The staff on the resort were all really friendly - We took the kids to Terra Natura in Murcia - and you got in free the next day with your ticket. A worthwhile visit for families.



Hi Nigel, Just to say that we had a fantastic holiday - the villa was great as was the weather and the pool and it was so so relaxing. Thanks very much. Mike and his wife (Ruth?) were great and looked after us during the 2 weeks and we never thought that anything was too much trouble for them. We would definitely consider coming back. Thanks once again - we loved your place in the sun.

Coast/Beach:

The port of Cartegena is 20 minutes drive away and has a wide range of shopping and historical sites. The beaches of the Mar Menor, Mazzaron, Los Alcazares and Los Narejos are all within easy reach, each boasting long sandy beaches with paved walkways and endless bars and cafes. Water sports enthusiasts (including scuba diving) are all well catered for.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Murcia (San Javier) which is 30 mins drive away and has flights from low cost airlines such as Ryanair, Monarch and Jet2, flying from most UK regional airports. A new international airport is due to open at Corvera which is only 15 mins from the resort. Alicante airport is approx 1 and 1/2 hours with a full range of international and inter-continental carriers. Use of a car is essential.

Distances:

The nearest town, Fuente Alamo, is a typical Spanish town 5 minutes drive away and has a well stocked supermarket and a range of shops, bars and restaurants. The town also holds a traditional market on a Saturday morning. The city of Murcia is 25 minutes north and boasts a magnificent Cathedral, numerous historic buildings plus enough shops to satisfy most retail therapy needs! Granada and the Alhambra Palace are approx 2 ½ hours drive away but are well worth the visit.

Further Details:

A 5 star hotel has been built adjacent to the stunning clubhouse and it is hoped it will open in the next year or so. The 'Pueblo Espanol', a purpose built town on the resort, is now finished and provides first class facilities for shops and restaurants, a couple of which are now occupied including a bar/restaurant and mini-market. The resort is surrounded by the majestic hills and mountains of the Murcia region providing stunning views. The main industry of the region is agriculture leading to acres and acres of fruit trees and vegetable crops rather than concrete and high rise developments. The Region of Murcia has miles of sandy beaches – the Costa Calida (Warm Coast) - rugged mountains and lakes - fertile plains capable of growing pretty much anything from salad vegetables to cotton and rice, oranges and lemons to grapes and apricots. Murcia has all of this as well as the healthiest climate in Europe (according to the World Health Organisation) with more than 320 days of sunshine per year and an average annual temperature 30C.

restful and relaxing stay

We passed an excellent stay in the villa. We appreciated the confort and the Equipment of the villa, as well as the calm of places.

This area of Spain is really surprising with landscapes and culture slightly different.

Lovely Villa in quiet secure surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay at this Villa. We stay in different Villas every year and this was one of the best in terms of pool/terrace layout, distance to local shops and most importantly, feeling right at home!

Firstly, booking the villa as very simple, the owner, Nigel, was quick to respond and the whole process was painless.

Once we arrived, we were delighted with the choice we made. firstly, the security entrance makes you feel safe and secure, although I doubt there is any need to feel any other way!

On to the Villa itself, it is well laid out with good size rooms and has everything you need for a 10 day stay. the extra pool toys and inflatables in the garage were a real bonus.

The whole place was clean and tidy with all the essentials you would need. In addition, the furnishings were great and the bed in the main bedroom was large and very comfy.

Outside, there is a lovely terrace which overlooks the pool meaning we could watch our son in the pool at all times. beyond the garden is the golf course which looks beautiful, although we never got to play it.

There is a restaurant/bar a short walk away which is great if you don't fancy venturing too far. if you do though, we would recommend Cartagena which is about 20-25 minutes away. Beautiful docks and lots of places to eat and drink.

We truly had a wonderful relaxing week and if we come back to Spain next year, we will no doubt return.

Much needed relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful stay at the villa. It was an ideal place to relax located in a very peaceful setting. So much so that my husband and I and the kids were rarely out of bed before 11 am. The villa was well equipped with all the things we needed to make our stay very comfortable and the kids enjoyed playing with the wide selection of games that were provided including the garden snakes and ladders and Jenga. Unlike some villas which have pools and are very cramped outside, there was plenty of space surrounding the pool for the kids to play with a ball or the swing ball that was available at the property. Our evenings were spent either by the pool having a BBQ, at the Spaniard Inn which was less than a 5 minute walk away or up at Kennellys bar (slightly longer walk) where the kids enjoyed the weekly karaoke event (Sunday evenings). The sports bar also organised for a Spanish football coach to come over twice a week to provide football training for our youngest whilst we enjoyed a gin and tonic soaking up the last few hours of the day’s sunshine. In addition, a new tapas bar was set up whilst we were there and the food was fantastic. I would definitely recommend a visit. Unfortunately we never made it to the golf club as we ran out of days but others highly recommended a visit for lunch or dinner. We took a trip to Mazarron (just over half an hour away) which was lovely. The breeze from the sea kept us cool as we walked around the marina before settling down on the beach whilst the kids enjoyed the giant inflatable (it’s a knockout kind of inflatable) in the sea. All in all we couldn’t have asked for more from a holiday and most of all we didn’t need to get up at silly o’clock to get a sunbed! Also we were able to stay in the property for a small extra charge the day we left as our flight wasn't until 8pm which also added to the convenience and relations. Thank you Nigel and Lesley for allowing us to stay at your lovely villa

Lovely villa with pool

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this villa in the sun set in a peaceful golf resort.

The villa came with everything we required for a lovely stay, and the highlight was most definitely the fantastic pool which the children wanted to spend every minute of the day in!

Clean and tidy, and the owner was a pleasure to deal. We would highly recommend to all, and will likely be back ourselves.

The surrounding area is quiet (exactly what we were after) and there are a couple of bars on the resort of which we'd recommend the Spaniard Inn for decent food and drink at a reasonable price. Travel further afield and there are a selection of beaches, historic Cartagena, and various attractions (the park in Tentagorra is great for young children with a pirate ship in the pool!).

We have recently returned from a week at Hacienda del Alomo in Murcia. the Villa of Nigel Farrar and his wife. We found the villa was very well equipped and ideal for anyone wanting a quieter type of holiday or a golf holiday as it is in an eighteen hole award winning golf course.We found all the staff at the resort to be very helpful and friendly.

Nigel was very helpful and easy to deal with.

Highly recommended.
