About the property

Apartment in Los Alcazares, Costa Calida / Murcia, Spain - 5 Minutes Walk To Restaurants And Supermarkets And 10 Minutes Walk To The Beach

Perfect for both winter and summer as it has all the home comforts and ENGLISH TV AND INTERNET IS CONNECTED ALL YEAR ROUND. The aircon is hot and cold so great for all seasons in addition we have ceiling fans in both bedrooms for your added comfort.

American style open kitchen, dinning and living with patio doors to a larger than average balance, 2 bedrooms double bedroom and twin bedroom (that can be zipped together to make a large double if preferred). Bathroom has bath, shower, sink, bidet, illuminated mirror and window.

Our apartment is located within an exclusive gated complex, set on the edge of the typically Spanish town of Los Alcazares, on the Mar Menor. The Mar Menor, meaning ‘small sea’ is the largest salt water lagoon in Europe. The area is well known for its temperate climate; long, safe sandy beaches; and warm, shallow crystal clear waters. The palm-lined, traffic-free promenade stretches for 7 km and is ideal for couples and families, with beach side cafe/bars, restaurants and children's play areas. There are several golf courses within close proximity, including the world famous La Manga. Murcia (San Javier) Airport is less than 10 mins and Alicante Airport 45 mins drive. The apartment itself is furnished to a very high standard, sleeps 4/5, and has large balcony with open views. It is ideally located, with restaurants, bars, supermarket, shops and banks only a few mins walk away, while the beautiful Mar Menor beach and promenade is a 10 mins stroll away.

Why Deborah chose Cartagena & Mar Menor

We are naturally very cautious and did a lot of research before viewing in this area. Basically we were looking for a property was close to an airport and within walking distance of the beach, shops, bars and restaurants, without being a typical tourist resort. This area ticked all the right boxes for us. The Mar Menor is beautiful and truly unique. Los Alcazares is an old fishing village and has retained its Spanish charm. It's fantastic to sit along the promenade and look across the Mar Menor to the La Manga strip, even better to take the ferry across. Both the old town and the new plaza provide plenty of choice of high quality restaurants and there are plenty of cafe/bars in the plaza and scattered along the promenade.

What makes this apartment unique

The complex is very friendly and within a secure gated community. We have tried to make the apartment a real home from home. It is very sleek and modern but comfortable. Our apartment also enjoys the benefits of a quiet location yet is only a couple of minutes walk to the plaza, which is buzzing with several quality restaurants and bars, and a further 5 mins walk to the beach and promenade. The plaza and promenade are pedestrianised so it is great for kids. Our parents also appreciated the distinct lack of hills in the area - it really is as flat as a pancake.

Around the 3 large swimming pools there is plenty of space for your sunbeds and for the children to run around and enjoy themselves without everyone being on top of one another.

Excellent apartment and complex

  • 5 of 5

We are currently staying on a six month winter let and sadly only have a few weeks left . We have had an amazing time in the winter sun. There is everything you could need in the apartment, English tv and internet have been really great. We have walked most everywhere, tried most restaurants, bars there are lots to choose from, bought everything we needed from supermarkets and shops all within walking distance.

Played golf every week and Rhoda is only a short distance away. There are also coach trips available which leave from the arches. Having a really great stay would highly recommend the very comfortable apartment and complex .

Thank you Deborah and Robert.

Also thank you to Debbie who has looked after us during our stay.
