About the property

Villa in Los Narejos, Los Alcazares, Costa Calida / Murcia, Spain - Great Location! 5 Min Walk to Market(Sat),10 Min Walk to Bars & Restaurants,10 Min by Car to Airport

This villa is perfect for a family holiday, with plenty of space for everyone. The ´flat´ on the upper floor is also an extra bonus at a small additional cost if needed. With full capacity it sleeps 8 so it would also be perfect for larger group bookings. The property is in an excellent location. It´s a stone´s throw away from the pool, beach and the airport. It is close enough to bars and restaurants(10 min on foot) yet far enough to enjoy the peacefulness and tranquility of the area. There are also some good bus routes available to the larger cities, such as cartagena, murcia and torrevieja. Torrevieja has an excellent waterpark. On the opposite side of the Mar Menor you have La Manga, which is well worth a visit. La Manga is a long strip of land and on one side you have the waters of the Mar Menor and on the other side you have the Mediterrean. There are regular boat taxis from Los Alcazares to La Manga during the summer. There are three supermarkets near the villa, again all within walking distance. The local market is every saturday and is 2 minutes from the villa. It sells local fresh fruit and vegetables, clothes, jewellery etc the Mar Menor ¨little sea¨ is our local beach and it is extremely safe for swimming. Dotted along the beach are a host of chiringuitos (beach bars) which make fresh tapas, serve cold local beer and are oozing with spanish hospitality. 10 minutes away from the villa, there is a ¨strip¨ full of bars and restaurants. It is perfect for nights out and has a huge variety of different food to please the palate of even the fussiest of eaters. If you want something typically spanish you don´t have to look very far as the area has oodles of tapa bars and spanish restaurants at very reasonabe prices.

About Jane Murphy

Hola!

My name is Jane Murphy. I am from Ireland but have been living in Spain for the last three years 3 years working as an English teacher. I began coming to this part of Spain when I was 9 or 10 and as a child I fell in love with the area. Who wouldn´t? Sun, sea and more sun! Rare in Ireland. I didn´t only fall in love with the country but also with my husband Jose, who as you are guessing from the name is a local. We live in a nearby village so if there are ever any problems with the house or you need any help or advice we are obviously at hand. I hope you enjoy your stay at the villa, I have no doubt you will. Adios!

Jane Murphy purchased this villa in 2007

Why Jane Murphy chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We decided to buy this villa because of its superb location really. It´s a 10 minute walk to the beach, the area has a variety of restaurants and bars and our villa has access to a shared pool. The pool is only used by a handful of villas and you need a key to enter. Also its so close to the airport that it makes travelling easy and hassle free.

What makes this villa unique

The property is close to everything you need. Supermarkets, shops, the local market, the beach, restaurants and bars. Its also close to some beautiful golf courses. For those of you who are a little more active, there are kite surfing and sailing courses available along the beach and some great mountain biking tracks on the area´s only mountain ¨Cabezo Gordo¨ which means fat head!

In need of some TLC

  • 2 of 5

The villa appears very nice to begin with till you begin to see the areas where some TLC is needed. Was planning on self catering but on arrival was told the oven doesnt work very well. There were no sauce pans to cook a meal with, just one or two with no matching lids. Ended up eating out every day using our spending money. The dish washer did not work very well. Toilet door would not close. Struggled to open and close waldrobe in main bedroom. Twin room had no where to store your clothes. The bed in the en-suite room made so much noise when you turned over it would wake you up. The road outside is very busy and finally the tv freeview did not work. Sort all these minor problems out and it would be more pleasent to stay in with a small family. The pool is very nice and private. Living room area very nice too. But be warned the whole area of Los Narejos is covered in dog poo so check your shoes!.

Enjoyed a lovely stay at Jane's villa - she was very helpful. Within a 15 minute walk there is the beach, restaurant plaza, tourist train stop, large and small supermarkets and a helpful pharmacy. Highly recommended.

Fantastic villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Jane and jose's lovely villa and they have made it even more special with the addition of a fantastic private pool.

It is in an ideal location for all the local bars and restaurants and only a short stroll from the fantastic beaches of the mar menor! We will return and highly recommend the villa as a great place to stay for couples and families alike!

Great villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday, the villa was within easy reach of the beach/bars & restaurants. The villa was well equipped & was more than adequate for 4 adults & 3 children. Jane was very helpful & I would definitely recommend a stay here.

A wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 10 glorious days staying at this lovely villa. We are a family of 6, three generations!! The children 4 year old and 18 months had a great time especially in the pool which was ideal with having a baby pool. The villa is so well equipped it's like home from home!! Jane is so helpful and is always available if needed. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Location

From the Owner

We decided to buy this villa because of its superb location really. It´s a 10 minute walk to the beach, the area has a variety of restaurants and bars and our villa has access to a shared pool. The pool is only used by a handful of villas and you need a key to enter. Also its so close to the airport that it makes travelling easy and hassle free.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

It´s a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive to the beautiful blue flag beaches of the Mar Menor. All along the beach from Los Narejos to Los Alcazares you can rent beach loungers and try out the beach bars typical to this area.

Travel:

It´s a ten minute drive to San Javier (Murcia) airport from the villa. There are regular flights with Easyjet and Ryanair all year round. The next airport closest to the property is Alicante. It´s an hour drive from the villa, and we would be happy to supply airport transportation (baby seats included). Alternatively, car hire is also available from both airports.
