About Mrs Martina Adams

Retired early for a life in Spain in 2006. Bought the property which was our home until family ties saw us return to the UK in 2011. Now we have five wonderful grandchildren who all enjoy holidaying in Spain.

Mrs Martina Adams purchased this villa in 2007

Why Mrs Martina Adams chose Murcia - Costa Calida

We looked for a property that would suit us both now and in our latter years. There are good motorway links with the rest of Spain and it is close to Murcia Airport and only 80 minutes from Alicante. The rural setting appeals to us while being only 15 minutes from the lovely historic city of Cartagena and 15 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Puerto de Mazarron.

What makes this villa unique

The villa was new when we bought but needed work on the outside space. we levelled the ground and had the pool and terrace built. We set to planting a garden and built the Annexe to accommodate our family. The pool-side bar was a must. We erected the gazebo in front of the Annexe so that we could enjoy "Al Fresco" dining without too much interference from our summer "friends" the flies. The English TV and WiFI Internet connection makes this a home from home.

Peace and tranquillity in a beautiful villa was just what we needed. Well-equipped and spotless. The location is great for sight-seeing too. Great access to the motorways. The House Managers were extremely welcoming and helpful. Had a wonderful time, thank you.

Fabulous villa wonderful for big family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa exceeded my expectations. We were a large family with kids/grandkids of various ages, enough room for everyone to have their own space when some quiet time needed. No neighbours near enough to have to worry about noise. The villa was super equipped with everything anybody could need. Owner extremely helpful, + local people (English gardeners) on hand should help/advise be needed. Would fully recommend to others and our family hope to return next year.

Thank you Mrs Adams for allowing us to share your lovely home.

Excellant!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 4 year old daughter stayed here for one week. What an amazing place to stay! The Villa had everything we needed, it was more than we expected! Our daughter loved the pool! and at night we sat out and watched the sun go down and stars come out which became a daily ritual. All amenities were a short drive away ie beach, restaurants, shops etc. Terra Natura which is a water park/zoo was about 40 minutes away, and another larger water park in Vera was about 1 hour drive away. Perfect for days trips. We had a brilliant time!! We'll definitely be coming back:)

perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six with children all still in primary school so finding a villa to fit our needs and in a price range we can afford is no easy task and to make it it that bit harder we were wanting somewhere our friends could come and join us for a week with their two small children! Having found this villa was just what we wanted. From the minute we arrived it felt like home. The size of the accommodation works brilliantly for families or groups of people, we never felt that space was an issue (even when some more friends joined us for the day so there were 14 folk there!) The children loved the pool and when they were not in the pool, we enjoyed endless games of hid and seek in the grounds, villa and bedsit.

As a parent one of my main worries is always the safety of the children but I could relax and enjoy every moment of the peaceful environment, as once the gates were shut I knew the children could run round and enjoy themselves.

The area is so very very relaxing with some lovely views but is only a short drive from the airport, some lovely villages and a wonderful town next to the sea where we spent a number of days enjoying the beach and sea.

I can not recommend this villa enough, it's extremely comfortable and clean, it really is a perfect holiday location and we have already booked for 2015!

Fantastic times August 2014

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fantastic time this summer at the Villa. The accommodation is clean and well presented and the facilities fabulous. We used the BBQ regularly and also enjoyed paella in the shaded area in the evenings too. A particular highlight for us was the pool and bar area which we used probably a little too regularly!! The pool is a perfect size and the garden very pretty. We enjoyed the privacy of the quiet location and as we hired cars also took advantage of the historic town of Cartegena, the busy restaurants and bars of Mazarron and the picturesque country park in the mountains of Totana. We didn't want to leave and will definately visit again. Thank you very much.

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased you all had a great time at our Villa in Tallante. We strive to make our guests holidays as enjoyable as possible and I personally don't think you can ever make too much use of the bar area !!!! The location is perfect for both a quiet holidays or sightseeing and it appears you did a bit of both. Thank you for your great review and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Outstanding Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this villa are exactly as it is and so much more. There is more than enough cooking equipment and everything was so clean and tidy. There were 10 (7 adults and 3 children) in our party and we were all very comfortable and we all used the pool every day. The bedrooms are really big and very, very comfortable and the lounge was excellent. The surrounding area is very picturesque and the villa was very east to find from the directions given. We visited Cartegana and Mazzaron a few times and both areas are beautiful. I would highly recommend this villa to anybody and have no doubt that my family and myself would use this villa again in the near future. If you want a holiday of peace and quiet with easy access to the towns with fantastic accommodation then this is the place to go. Fabulous.
