Sun, Sea and Sangria!: Boasting over 320 days of sunshine every year, the Costa Blanca or 'White Coast' is one of the world's healthiest places to live according the World Health Organisation and the healthiest place in Europe. So maybe you are not visiting for the benefit of your health, but the lovely dry climate makes the Costa Blanca a great place to stay for a few days or a few weeks - soaking up the sun on the lovely beaches or basking by the pool. Maybe you fancy a walk along the promenade at Torrevieja, visiting the stalls of local craftsmen or maybe coffee and a snack at one of the many cafes. With lots of bars and restaurants serving local dishes or international cuisine, there is something for everyone. Why not book yourself on a boat trip and enjoy a leisurely cruise along the coastline or for those young at heart or with children, why not visit one of the theme parks. And make a note - Paramount Studios are opening a theme park to rival Disneyland a little further along the coast in 2015!
Muddy Waters!: Lo Pagan Mud Baths (Los Banos del Lodo)
Why not try something completely different and visit the Lo Pagan Mud Baths - they are a great day out for the whole family. Only about 4 km from Murcia airport, take the San Pedro turn off from either the AP7 or N332 then from there it's just 5 min away. Follow the signs for Lo Pagan and you will get there.
The most important thing is that they are free. Great news if you have a large family to keep occupied. It is open air, you simply go into the mud pools cover yourself or each other in mud then come out and let it dry on in the sun!
All ages are there from two to 102 - it's a strange sight at first seeing all these people standing round looking like statues but great fun once you are 'muddied' up.
And believe it or not - it's good for you even if it is a bit smelly!!!
Palming you Off!: The Palmeral of Elche is a plantation of palm trees in the Spanish province of Alicante. It is the largest palm grove in Europe and one of the largest in the world, surpassed in size only by some in Arab countries.
The Palmeral includes the Parque Municipal and many other orchards (huertos), covering over 3.5 km2 (1.4 sq mi), including 1.5 km2 (0.58 sq mi) within the city of Elche (Elx). It contains more than 11,000 palm trees, mostly date palms (Phoenix dactylifera), with individual specimens up to 300 years old. At its peak, in the 18th century, it may have covered an area twice as large, with up to 200,000 trees.
It is thought that palms were originally planted in this location as early as the 5th century BC by Carthaginians who settled in south-east Spain. The plantation survived under the Romans and the Moors.
A lovely calm and tranquil place to visit, a Unesco World Heritage Site.
The property is more or less exactly the same as the one my brother in law owns around the corner. The property and light and spacious, perfect for myself and family. However, I wasn't expecting it to be so well equipped. Loungers, cooler box (with ice blocks) and picnic set are all available to use. Pretty much everything you can think of (and probably some bits you didn't think of!!). We'll certainly be enquiring again next year to see if this property is available.
Such a lovely, clean and comfortable home. The neighborhood was quiet so we could sleep with the window open, no problem. I loved the roof patio, perfect for morning tea. We can't thank the keyholders Isabel & Robbie enough as our check-in time was much later than anticipated. They were so very gracious about it. If I can offer a helpful tip for the owners Joan & Nigel, traveling from the United States is challenging as we are only allowed a quart-size baggie of liquid products to bring along. It would have been helpful to have shampoo, cream rinse, body wash or bar soap provided. In the USA, we don't bring these items as they are provided at other rentals and most of our hotels. If I needed one of these products, then I would just go to the store and buy a travel size for use on vacation. Villamartin was different in that they did not have travel size, so we purchased full size bottles. Not to worry, we came to visit my sister so we left the barely used remainders with her. This is not a big deal and did not affect my 5 star rating. Thank you so much for the laundry soap & softener! This delightful home is within walking distance of everything Villamartin. We had a blast at The Stray Sod pub & others in the area. There were many cafe' & restaurant choices. We loved the Shakira Indian Restaurant. Delightful food and great service. La Zenia beach is only minutes away by car. Torrevieja is a don't miss small city with a beach boardwalk and open air market only maybe 10 miles away. We drove 3 hours to Granada to visit the Alhambra. I highly recommend this amazing attraction for all it's centuries of history. A one hour drive to Alicante was the Castille de Santa Barbara (free admission, but a small 4 euro fee for special exhibits). It's origins begin in the 9th Century. I got goosebumps in the Torture Chamber exhibit and the Knights armour exhibit was spectacular. The Cathedral in Murcia was worth the less than 2 hour drive. And a highlight of our trip; only a 6 hour drive to the southern tip of Spain to Tarifa. We took a ferry ride across the Strait of Gibraltar to Tangier, Morocco...in Africa. That's right, my husband and I got to see some of Spain and a tiny bit of Africa. Such delightful people and a wonderous city! I could go on but I must close here as I'm running out of room. Watch out for the tolls on the Autovia' del Mediterraneo as we paid over 100 euros (yes they take CCs) on Hwy travels. It was worth every penny!
We had a beautiful time over there, house is very nice and clean and I can say the same about the pool. Children were absolutely happy.The keyholders Isabel and Robbie they are very kind couple, they helped with everything we needed. Weather can not surprise you at all, food is brilliant, the restaurants and pubs are just 10 min walking distance. The 3 courses menu cost about 9euro. I recommend to visit near towns Toravieja and Cartagena. In Toravieja you can find lots of restaurants, night life and enjoy pretty plaza, night market every day. Cartagena is for people they like bit of history, there is a roman theater, old lanes with cafe and restaurants and beautiful harbor as well.Can not wait to come back next year. That was one of the best holiday we ever had.
On a quiet residential street, this three storey town house is in an ideal location for the many attractions of the Costa Blanca. Just an easy 30 min drive from Murcia Airport and only 45 minutes from Alicante Airport on the N332, the accommodation is close to three of the areas best golf courses, the championship course of Villamartin and quality courses at Campoamor and Las Ramblas. There are numerous fine sandy Blue Flag beaches within a short drive including La Zenia, Campoamor, Playa Flamenca and Cabo Roig together with the beautiful long beaches at Torre de la Horadada. There are many shops, bars and restaurants within a short walk, or you could take the 15 minute drive to Torrevieja with it's seaside promenade, boat trips, water parks and shops. With many local open-air markets to visit almost every day of the week, nature reserves with pink flamingos and historic towns and museums, there is always something to do in the area - or you could just relax and enjoy the sun!!!!
Golf: Villamartin golf course was constructed and built by Mr. Putmann and opened in June 1972. A championship course, Villamartin hosted the 1994 Mediterranean Open which was won by Jose Maria Olazabal after an exciting play-off with Paul McGinley. Villamartin Golf Club has an exciting design and many challenges. The course is par 72 and the length is 6132 meters from the white tees, 6037 from yellow, and 5259 from red. The course is very diverse and unlike many other courses in this part of Spain, none of the holes are equal. One of the challenges is the many old pine and olive trees. Regardless of the challenges one can from several of the holes, enjoy the beautiful view over the Mediterranean Sea.
The Campoamor Golf course with its spectacular location, offers something really special for players. Golfers will enjoy playing this impressive course which winds its way through two connected valleys. The wide and manicured fairways offer a fair challenge to players of all abilities.
Las Ramblas Golf Course was created by the famous designer Pepe Gancedo,who always provides his courses with creative and innovative characteristics and quality that has earned his national and international reputation. This golf course has incomparable beauty and as its name indicates (a Rambla is a dry riverbed, that carries water when it rains) has been developed on a steep terrain surrounded by watercourses.
There are many other courses in the surrounding area.
