THE IDEAL BASE TO EXPLORE THE COSTA CALIDA

La Union Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A home from home with sunshine

The 2 bedroom apartment, one double and one twin bedroom can comfortably sleep 4 people.

The apartment itself is open plan with seating accommodation for 4 people on 2 sofas. The balcony to the front of the apartment has seating accommodation. The fully equipped kitchen is to the rear of the apartment, with a dining table and 4 chairs. A 32 inch satellite TV can be viewed from both areas. A separate utility room adjoins the kitchen.

Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and are comfortably furnished. All bedding and towels are provided. Also hair dryers, iron and ironing board.

The spacious roof sun terrace, is equipped with a shower, patio furniture and sun beds and attracts all day sun.

Although a car is not strictly neccesary it is recommended if you wished to visit the numerous places of interest in the Murcia region.

La Union is serviced by both bus and train. The city of Cartagena and Los Nietos (beach) can be reached by train, and towns and villages by bus from La Manga to Los Alcazares and Torrevieja.

Murcia airport (San Javier) is a 15 minute drive from La Union, with Alicante a further 45 minutes.

Fly from British airports into either Murcia or Alicante with Easyjet, Flybe, Jet2.com or Ryanair.

The Costa Calida area of Spain attracts around 320 days of sunshine on average, and has Murcia as its capital city.

A short drive from La Union will take you to the many golf courses in the area, the most prestigious of which is the La Manga Club Resort.

HOME FROM HOME IN THE SUN

  • 4 of 5
If you're looking for a relaxing holiday, soaking up the sun in an authentic Spanish location then this is the place for you. Bill's apartment offers all the comforts of home, big screen TV, beautifully appointed kitchen and bedrooms which are comfortable with plenty of linen and towels and a swimming pool nearby. La Union is not a tourist resort but an old mining town with a new and very interesting mining museum which is well worth a visit. The Tuesday market offers an abundance of fresh fruit and veg ... oh and olives. There is also a general market where you can buy household goods, clothing and shoes. There are a few local restaurants and bars but for a more upmarket meal you need to go outside the town. Cartagena is only 15 minutes by train, it offers nice shopping, a beautiful harbour area and has a Roman amphitheatre. A special place for us is the restaurant which looks like a boat by the harbour; it's all white inside with LP records as a feature. The bus station is next door to the railway station and from Cartagena you can get a direct bus to Murcia town which only takes 40 minutes. There are nice beaches not far from La Union which you can easily get to by bus, including the famous La Manga. Don't come home without the delicious salted almonds from Murcia Airport - these are to die for1

GREAT HOLIDAY

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely apartment with almost everything you need. It was ideally located for us, I would recommend a car for ease of getting around however it isn't absolutely necessary, public transport is not too bad from La Union. The apartment itself was very clean and well presented, there was a big roof terrace and a nice balcony area both with seating. The rooms were all a good size and the apartment comes well equipped with the essentials. The only thing I would say was missing was air conditioning, it really was extremely hot, a large fan is provided but we had to borrow another from one of the very pleasant neighbours, it was July/August so the heat was intense. We obviously hadn't noticed prior to booking that there was no air con! Other than that I could not fault the apartment. Bill the owner was great, excellent communication from him regarding the booking, he answered all our queries promptly and is well organised in getting keys to you and ensuring the apartment is ready in time. The town of La Union is nice, it has everything you need, a lovely bakery, Mercadona Supermarket, couple of nice bars, cafes and restaurants. I particularly like that this is not an area full of tourists, it's quite a traditional little Spanish town.
I highly recommend this area and apartment.

The lively market town of La Union, named after an amalgamation in the mid eighteenth century of 4 small mining villages, is situated midway between the naval port city of Cartagena on the one hand and the sandy beaches and bays of the Mar Menor on the other.

The Mar Menor (inland sea) is a short drive away and is a safe haven for swimming and water sports as it is non tidal. Separating the Mar Menor from the Mediterranean is the La Manga strip. Los Alcazares, with what seems like miles of glorious sandy beaches and bar restaurants is one of the larger towns sitting on the Mar Menor and is very popular in summer with Spanish holidaymakers and tourists alike.

Near San Pedro and towards the north end of the Mar Menor is another traditional Spanish town called Lo Pagan, famous for its mineral waters and Mud baths.

Murcia, the regions capital and cultural city is situated on the river Segura and boasts a beautiful Cathedral and other historic buildings, is a 20 minute drive away.
