with the wide age range of our party. the villa was absolutely spotless and so well laid out. nice touch with the towels! the neighbours who look after things for you were charming, friendly and very helpful. cant think how it could be improved. really look forward to returning again. best wishes, jill (From Jill Sheldon, Witney Oxford)

Hi Diane,

We all enjoyed a really relaxing holiday, your house is lovely and we made full use of the BBQ. The beach is fabulous, at about 2pm the Spanish disappear for their siesta & we felt as though the beach became exclusively ours. We often went to Aqualino's restaurant, Steve enjoyed the cured hams and watching what the locals ordered. We much appreciated the use of your home and the thoughtfulness you had shown before we left the UK. Kind regards, Sue Kennedy,

(Gateacre, Liverpool)

Lovely house, a real Home from home

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The neighbors are all very helpful & friendly, The two patios are sun traps & great for Al fresco eating, barbeques or just lazing in the sun!

There are four sandy local beaches to choose from & the two resorts of Santiago de la Ribera & Lo Pagan to explore. The Mar Menor sea gets deep very gradually so is fine for children.

The Dos Mares shopping Mall is less than 10 minutes walk away & has many boutiques & bars plus a huge supermarket that sells everything, we found that very handy.

There are several local markets & the tourist office in La Ribera can advise about current Spanish Fiestas.

We felt very at home in this villa and were very sorry to leave but will definitely be returning again!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a very relaxing week. There were four of us, two in our 40's and two in their 70's.

The house was beautiful and had everything that you could have needed, and the outdoor areas were stunning. The front patio is a sun trap with comfortable sun lounges, and the internal patio gives that 'away from it all' feeling.

Doerta was there to welcome us and we felt that we could have called on her if we had needed to.

We didn't hire a car and the beach and restaurants were easily within walking distance (taxis were easy to order by phone too) and the beaches were fantastic.Dos Mares shopping centre is just along the road.

Diane provided very detailed information which was a lovely touch and it made the holiday feel very comfortable and a home from home.

I would highly recommend this house and would love to return.

Thank you Diane and Doerta too

the house was well maintained and very clean,every thing that was said about the property was correct,the only thing that what would have made it more comfortable would have been air conditioning,but there was plenty of fans which was most welcome,the lady across the road was very helpful and very friendly.The beach was clean and the water was fantastic,plenty of places to eat, and to have a drink.We would go again with out doubt. Thank you Diane.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed a great two weeks at this property. There were eight people in our party, ranging in age from 2 to 72 and it was suitable for us all. We found the property clean and well prepared and were greeted and shown around the property on our arrival by Spanish neighbours who we knew were on hand should should we have encountered any problems (which we didn't!). The description of this property probably doesn't do it justice, it is a lovely house, with a good size patio area in a pleasant area. A car is handy, but it is so convenient for Murcia airport, without being in the flight path. I would definitely recommend a visit.

Hello Diane

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed your gorgeous home in Santiago de la Ribera (Murcia). the house is situated in a great location

for beach: shopping & restaurants etc. & is bright, comfortable & well equipped.

Another plus is that the neighbors, Doerta, Ana & Cristobal were so kind & helpful.

We had a brilliant holiday & will definitely contact you in the future to book your property again & would happily recommend it to anyone especially families. Best wishes Aileen, Paul & the boys

The property is situated in a friendly residential area & is approx. 15 minutes walk from the sandy beaches of the Mar Menor or 3 / 5 minutes max by car or bike. The Mar Menor sea is a saltwater lagoon, often likened to a natural swimming pool & is several degrees warmer than the adjoining Mediterranean. It is very calm & gets deep gradually, making it fine for children. The beaches run for 4 miles from La Ribera to Lo Pagan.

The nearby “Dos Mares” is a bustling shopping mall with many shops & eating places or bars of all descriptions. It also contains “Eroski” supermarket and a Cinema complex. Dos Mares is10 minutes walk away (less than 5 min by car). The two local resorts of Santiago de la Ribera (known as ”La Ribera” locally) and Lo Pagan have a great variety of Spanish & international restaurants, fish restaurants & tapas bars are in abundance.

There are open-air markets on most days, selling leather goods & fresh produce. Local markets - La Ribera Wednesday & Lo Pagan Thursday

Golf: There are numerous golf courses, including 4 of international standard within a 15/30 minutes drive away.
