Why Graham Beevers chose Cartagena - Mar Menor

Our villa is in a beautiful area of Spain, unspoilt yet close to the city of Cartagena and the Port of Mazarron; it holds special memories for us as we lived there for several years while our children were younger. We are 150m from the beach and a whole host of beach bars and restaurants. The villa is large accommodating up to 10 people, has Wi-Fi and full SKY package, air-con to all rooms and a large well maintained swimming pool. W

What makes this villa unique

We have wonderful neighbours next door who look after the property and who are always on hand should there be an emergency. The grounds are always well maintained and the villa and pool are always cleaned to a very high standard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This comfortable villa is clean, well equipped and maintained. It is situated in a quiet area of La Azohia and within walking distance of the village.

The meet and greet services were excellent with support during the week from neighbours.

We loved the large pool, plenty of space, putting green and walks along the beach. There were several good restaurants in the area.

We would recommend this villa to friends or relatives.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

El Descanso is a lovely large villa in a quite residential area of La Azohia. There is everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The pool is large and sparkling and my wife didn't move from it for the week we were there. The upstairs bedrooms all have air conditioning which is very welcoming in the Southern Spanish summer heat.

La Azohiah itself is very underdeveloped and quite (unlike so many other Spanish holiday resorts) and is mainly used by Spanish holiday makers and is situated in a beautiful bay.

I can strongly recommend this villa.

El Descanso, La Azohia

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful holiday at this villa. Our family group of 9, included grandparents and 2 children aged 7 and 6 months. The villa etc was exactly as described, the property was clean, loads of towels including beach towels and everything in the house you could possibly need. There is also a fabulous library for the readers among us.

Unlike other properties we have rented this was like a home from home, with a nice welcome pack but also things were left in the house such as washing up liquid, soap powder, dishwater tablets etc. The grounds are in in good order and spacious and there is a lovely big pool.

Werni, the next door neighbour, will be there to greet you and provide any help you need during the holiday, a really nice man.

The area is very quiet, but the beach and village is close by. We loved the quietness and also the fact it was a mainly spanish resort. Cartagena and Mazarron are both easily accessible if you want to visit larger towns, shops, markets etc.

We didnt do much travelling, but I recommend a trip up the mountain to the gun batteries. The twisty nerve wracking drive is well worth it when you get to the top.

I would certainly recommend this villa for a great relaxing family holiday and would definitely return.

Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant family holiday in this villa. There were 10 of us for the first week (6 adults and 4 children) and 6 of us for the second week (4 adults and 2 children). We never once felt cramped or on top of one another as there was so much room. Everything was catered for and there was nothing that we needed that the villa did not have. The bedrooms are extremely spacious and the beds very comfy. The children loved the swimming pool and the putting green(along with the Dads/Grandad). The beach was near and was very clean and we found a couple of really lovely restaurants to eat.

We would love to return in the furture and would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to family and friends.

The owner provided really good service and was fantastic at answering the (many) questions that we had. The people that look after the villa out there are next door neighbours and were brilliant at helping us with anything that we needed or any questions that we had.

It provided everything that we wanted for a brilliant family holiday.

Stunning villa perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

El Descanso is a fabulous well equipped spacious villa in a stunning part of Spain , very quiet perfect for relaxing and exploring this lovely area. 5 min walk to the sea and pebble beach but 10 mins further on is a lovely sandy beach with ice cream hut, shop and a handful of restaurants.We stayed with my parents and our 2 children aged 4 and 16 mths and the villa accommodated us perfectly . The pool was fantastic and the villa had everything we could need . Would recommend car hire as supermarkets and better selection of restaurants are about 10 -15 mins drive. We all had a fantastic time and would highly recommend El Descanso to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings .

A wonderful Villa for familes with young children

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August 2010 and had a wonderful time. There were 11 of us in total including 5 children aged between 5 and 12. The Villa is very spacious with excellent outside space and a very good sized and clean pool. The weather was very hot while we were there and so we spent a lot of time in the pool although there were plenty of shaded area's to escape the sun and all the rooms upstairs were air conditioned. We felt very well looked after and the owner was easily contactable and gave us plenty of advise on the local area.

You definitely need a car to get around as the local shop is a good 15 minutes walk away and sold mainly spanish groceries. A trip to one of the many large supermarkets is a must and you need a car to do this. You also need a car to enjoy the local coastline if you like exploring.

There is a handy jetty and a five minute walk to the sea although you need to walk along the sea front for about ten minutes to get to the sand. The beach is very clean and the sea is calm and shallow so perfect for families.

We were slightly dissapointed that there wasn't much entertainment in the evenings. There were a few family run restaurants but it wasn't very lively and we saw little or no English people while we were there. The evening highlight for the children was a visit to the ice-cream hut and a run along the well paved and safe path along the sea front.There were the most amazing sunsets every evening the beach stayed busy all evening with many Spanish families picnicing on the beach.

I would recommend the Villa for families who like to get away from it all, enjoy quiet holiday's and don't mind self catering. The Villa itself was a home from home with everything you might need from beach towels and sun cream to an array of books to enjoy.

Our Christmas break at El Descanso

  • 5 of 5

We found the villa really well appointed with a lovely kitchen and garden. The beds were really comfortable and the log fire and big tv were appreciated. There was a pathway down the side of the house straight to the beach for walks along the shore. The pool is bigger than it appears in the photos. There were several good restaurants within walking distance which were open at Christmas. There were local shops as well. The villa suited us perfectly for a winter break.

La Azohia
Car: recommended

This welcoming beach villa is situated between the historic city of Cartagena and the fishing port of Mazarrón, just a 50-minute drive from San Javier airport.

Historically the area is a fascinating blend of Carthaginian, Phoenician, Greek, Roman, Moorish and European influences, and the city of Cartagena is just a 20-minute drive away. The landscape offers great opportunities for cyclists and walkers, with the mountains of Sierra Espuña and a host of welcoming towns just a short trip inland. The area is a popular destination for beach-lovers, but the whole region (and the capital city) of Murcia deserves exploring and the climate and local cuisine make it an attractive destination all year round.The village itself is small, but during the summer there are many beach bars and a local supermarket to meet your everyday shopping needs, while larger supermarkets are 15 minutes away. For more night life the Port of Mazarrón is only 6 miles along the coast.
