About the Owner

We live in Hertfordshire. I work in central London and Pauline is a teacher. Our family purchased the villa 10 years ago, and we have had many fabulous golfing, tennis and family holidays. We try to get out to the villa 4 or 5 times a year, and the villa is popular with our kids, their partners and friends. We are looking forward to spending much more time in the villa when we retire, so that we can really explore and enjoy the many walks in the area. We treasure the peaceful surroundings, barbecues on the terraces, and the wonderful swimming pool on the doorstep. Buying the villa was the best decision we have ever made in our lives and it gives us so much pleasure. Thank you for looking at the villa details and please call if we can supply any further information.

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to La Manga Club, very happy we chose El Rancho and the villa was just right for us - well equipped throughout and right next to one of the communal pools. Enjoyed evenings eating on the main terrace off the lounge, and the spacious roof terrace holds modern, comfortable sun loungers...perfect! Kitchen has everything you could possibly need! Modern flat screen TV with good choice of channels. Our 12 year old son enjoyed walking to the main square (about 3/4 min walk) to buy an ice cream after mornings at the Golf Academy. Ate at La Finca and Undersun on their Flamenco evening - these were superb restaurants. A lovely stay, thank you!

El Rancho

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this villa more highly. It is very well equipped with tasteful furnishings and lovely bathrooms. The view from the terrace off the living area was fantastic. I hardly moved from the terrace and particularly spectacular at night.

The swimming pool was empty at 6pm at night and as the sun was still very high in the sky very pleasant to swim in.

One tiny niggle the hob could have had English instructions, it took a bit of working out.

I would thoroughly recommend this accomodation for a superb holiday.

From the Owner

We purchased the villa to escape the pressure of working in London and to enjoy many family holidays at one of Europe's most prestigious holiday and sporting destinations. There are few better golf courses in Europe than the 3 at the club, and the 28 tennis courts are second to none in Europe. There are over 15 restaurants within walking distance of the villa and a number of bars. Most visitors spend their entire holidays within the club, but there is much to see and do further afield:- Spectacular walks, bike rides in the hills and along the cliffs, and swimming from fabulous deserted sandy beaches less than 30 minutes drive through a nature reserve. The pretty fishing village of Cabo de Palos is 20 minutes from the villa. A visit to the historic Murcia and Cartagena is a must do!

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Tennis, squash, gym, spa and bowls are very popular at La Manga Club and there are many tennis lessons and coaching sessions available.


The club beach is 30 minutes walk from the villa down an unsurfaced road that winds down the cliffs with spectacular views. There are remote fine sandy beaches 25 minutes drive from the villa at Calblanque. The roads are unmade, and the miles of sandy beaches are never crowded and often deserted. Very safe bathing for the young is available from the fine sandy shallowly sloping beaches on the Mar Menor. Water sports, diving, and boat hire are available from Cabo de Palos.


Murcia (St Javier) airport is 25 minutes drive away, and Alicante airport is just over an hour drive away. Madrid (Barrajas) airport is a 4 hour drive away. Hire cars and taxis are available on site.


Los Belones, the nearest town, is 5 minutes drive on roads through citrus fields, and has a wide range of restaurants and bars. Cartagena is 20 minutes drive away and has some fascinating historical sites, a fine harbour and fine shops. Murcia is a sophisticated and elegant city being 50 minutes drive away with fine shopping,department stores and a wonderful historical centre. The pretty fishing village of Cabo de Palos is 15 minutes drive away and has a large Sunday morning market.

Further Details:

La Manga Club lives up to it's reputation as being Europe's premier sporting resort, yet the El Rancho community provides a quiet, peaceful landscaped environment ideal for golfers, tennis players, guests seekig relaxation in the spa, and families at the heart of the club. The swimming pool is rarely crowded, and sun loungers are usually available even at the height of summer. The golf, bowls, tennis and squash courts are amongst the finest in Europe, and reduced fees for residents make these appealing. The club is self sufficient, and there is no need to venture outside the club, as it has banks, garage, over 15 restaurants, bars, 2 supermarkets, shops, car hire companies, doctors surgery, children's club for children aged 3 months to 12 years (high season). There is a shuttle bus that connects all the facilities and the beach. The Club's spa facility features a 25 metre indoor pool, saunas, jacuzzis, and a large gymnasium as well as many treatment rooms for health and beauty therapies. The tennis centre has 28 courts of differing surfaces. Some of these courts are floodlit. There is also short tennis, bowls and a large outdoor swimming pool.
