Overview

About the property

3 Bed, large solarium, peaceful location, mountains views, air-con, satellite tv

Please note that a departure clean has been included in my rental prices.

Located on an exclusive development, this three bedroom apartment is well equipped. The large private rooftop solarium affords stunning sea and mountain views. UK TV and Wi-Fi are available. A generous sized table and 6 chairs forms the main Al Fresco dining area on the solarium. There is also a second balcony off the lounge allows some shade, with a further table and chairs. The solarium is an ideal spot to watch the vivid sunsets with a glass of local wine. There is a cot and highchair for the use of guests. The area is ideal for families, romantic breaks, walking, nature, diving or cycling holidays. Fully air conditioned, its on the second floor of only two, in a very peaceful location, on the exclusive development of El Pinar De San Gines.

The apartment has been tastefully furnished in a contemporary design, with leather sofas in the large lounge, a table and 4 chairs, a DVD player, and satellite TV installed. The kitchen has a large fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher and is well equipped.

All bedrooms have large built in wardrobes with plenty of storage. The main bedroom is en-suite with a double bed, the other bedrooms have twin beds. There are 2 communal pools close by.

Costa Calida: The Costa Calida, Spain's 'warm coast' is a fairly undiscovered part of south-eastern Spain. La Azohia is a totally unspoilt idyllic Spanish fishing village. There are no large tour operators here, and even in the height of the season you will be able to find empty beaches along the coast.

The region of Murcia is locally known at the 'Market Garden of Spain' as it grows all kinds of salad vegetables, citrus fruits, nuts, rice and grapes. The Costa Calida boasts 320 days of sunshine a year, average temperatures in the winter are 17 degrees, and 27 degrees in the summer.

The governing bodies, the Town Halls, in this region are anxious to protect the national heritage of their mountains, salt lakes, beaches and grasslands and have allocated huge areas to be reserved as National and Regional Parks. Having learned lessons from costas on each side of the region, they will not allow building at the expense of the local flora, fauna and quality of life.

Places to Visit: A five minute drive will take you to the little resort of Isla Plana where there are more restaurants, bars, shops and a bank.

Ten minutes drive will find you in the bustling port of Mazarron. Shops, pavements cafes, and bars are abundant here, an ideal place for young and old alike. The tree lined promenade is a favourite place for families to take an evening stroll, and watch the sun go down.

Further afield, approximately 30 minutes drive, is the famous port of Cartegena. Here you will see enormous cruise ships docking on a daily basis to enjoy the rich history of the port. The area has wonderful architecture and very classy shops, many vibrant squares, and well worth exploring.

Inland there are many places to visit, including the holy city of Caravaca de la Cruz. Travelling through orange, lemon, and olive groves, you will discover many jewels off the beaten track.

Activities in the Area: Come to La Azohia and you will relax … there is almost no pace of life here. This is an excellent area for families and couples. Walkers will also love this area as it caters for those who like long leisurely strolls on the flat, as well as those who prefer the more rugged environment. For the more energetic, there is golf, swimming, windsurfing, diving at all levels, sailing, boat cruises, biking, river rafting, tennis. For the less energetic, there is a spa at the local 4 star La Azohia hotel.

For families, La Azohia is the ideal safe environment, it's where the Spanish spend their holidays.

The area enjoys a wealth of interesting historical and geographical sites – salt flats, the largest lagoon in Europe at Mar Menor, mineral mines at Mazarron, the oldest submarine in the world, cannon sites, pirate lookouts, Roman and Carthaginian remains in Cartagena, Moorish architecture, Holy Cities, International Jazz festivals, rock concerts, fairs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'A very attractive apartment, spacious and furnished to a high standard. Views from the solarium were magnificent, and all in all very peaceful. La Azohia itself is a real find - totally unspoiled surrounded by mountains, with crystal clear waters, and a lovely long promenade, making it suitable for couples, families, and mature people' (Review submitted 01/01/2006)

'I stayed in this apartment in June and was very impressed by the unspoiled location. The property is very well equipped, and the views from the solarium are quite stunning. I would recommend this for anyone who would like to enjoy unspoiled Spain' (Review submitted 12/06/2005)

'I first visited La Azohia three years ago and was impressed by the stunning scenery and how unspoiled the region is. I recently stayed in this new apartment, and have to say that the location is first class. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay, there's so much to see and do, I would recommend it to young and old alike' (Review submitted 2/09/2005)

La Azohia, on the Costa Calida where time stands still. Soak up the sunshine and relax. Enjoy a leisurely stroll down to the sea front through fragrant pine trees to watch the fish catch brought into the village jetty. The newly built tree lined promenade stretches for miles, allowing a flat coastal walk to neighbouring village Isla Plana. Situated at the eastern end of Mazarron bay, La Azohia is the jewel of the Costa Calida. Backed by mountains, this is an idyllic fishing village where the pace of life is far from hurried. Just 20 minutes from Cartagena and 10 minutes from Puerto de Mazarron, where you will find many restaurants, shops and bars this is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday.

El Pinar De San Gines is a small exclusive development, built to blend in with surrounding mountain scenery. Only 500 metres from the beach, the area has a charm of its own. La Azohia itself has 4 diving schools, a few Spanish bars and restaurants, a 4 star hotel, and a mini-market.

Golf: For Golfers there are many courses in the area including Camposol which is just 20 minutes drive from the apartment, and the famous La Manga Golf Club is just 40 minutes drive.

La Azohia retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our holiday in this lovely apartment which is well equipped , spacious and has a small terrace off the living area on which we ate most evenings. The large roof terrace also has a fabulous eating area with great sea views and plenty of room for sun bathing in private!....the swimming pool is very close to the apartment and one can have it to one's self if go down early when open at 10 a.m.! Jan the apartment owner was very attentive and great in organising some maintenance issues . The local beaches at La Azohia and nearby towns are fabulous .....plenty to choose from if one has a car!......we found La Azohia a fabulous and safe place for a quiet holiday ....the local Spar shop is well stocked and the large supermarkets in Puerto de Mazarron are not far away for a wider choice. We highly recommend this lovely comfortable apartment.

Great, relaxing & peacefull

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is lovely, spacious and clean. A quiet village where you can chill. Close enough to nearby larger towns where you can find larger supermarkets, etc. We would recommend a change in mattresses as all had pocket springs. Also, the dishwasher did not work well. It would also be even better if there was a microwave. Apart from that, we would highly recommend this booking!

Tranquility & Nature galore

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is set back off the main road in a pleasant complex. It really is a superb place with plenty of room and a wonderfully airy feel to it. Well maintained and nicely furnished it is a great place to return to at the end of a day. The roof top is large with ample room for sun bathing and BBQs with the added bonus of the most spectacular view right across the bay to Mazarron. Sunsets are wonderful to watch and behind you are hills and bird life. Arriving by heading over the mountains from Cartgena, the beautiful spectacle sets the scene for arrival in Azohia. A quiet fishing port and a palm tree esplanade along the sea front make for a great stroll with restaurants across the road. Everyone was friendly. I had a great holiday here and highly recommend the apartment.

Set in a nice complex with views to the sea

  • 4 of 5

Accommodation has all that you need for a relaxing holiday. Well equipped with nice furnishings. The best is the large roof terrace with views of the sea.

Visited Cartagena and Murcia which are well worth the visit.

Enjoyed Mazarron with lovely beaches and some excellent restaurants where you can have the daily menu for €10 wine included.

Definitely want to return

Lovely apartment with gorgeous views.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very attractive, spacious, comfortable and clean. It has been very well equipped by the owner - every little detail has been thought of. The roof terrace is brilliant. Very spacious with gorgeous views and just the place to relax with a drink or meal - or just sunbathe.

The village has a very long "prom" backing the lovely beach with mountains in the distance. This is about a 5/10 mins walk from the apartment. Some of the beach is rocky, some pebbles, with long stretches of sand. The water is beautifully clear. The village has at least 4 scuba diving companies. There are a few good restaurants facing the beach.

We visited Mazarron which is a lovely town - several beaches and a pretty harbour. We went on a boat trip in a glass bottomed boat that was very enjoyable. Many of the restaurants offer a special lunchtime menu for a very cheap price - approx. 10 Euros for 4 courses - often including a glass of wine. Delicious and excellent value. We also visited Cartagena and Murcia - both were interesting places with their own atmosphere and beautiful architecture. Although it is very possible to use local buses it is much easier to travel around with a hire car.

We really enjoyed our holiday in La Azohia and hope to visit again in the future. We would definitely stay in the same apartment which we would strongly recommend.

spacious everything , fab convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed a great break in May 16 in this apartment. The spacious roof terrace with its wonderful sea views offers sufficient privacy and facility for outdoor living and chilling. Very clean on arrival. All rooms sufficiently equipped for our stay - Very convenient location for walking access to sea front. Situated in the lovely and peaceful San Gines. Just missing a kitchen microwave. We have booked for a return stay - so it has our thumbs up.
