Fantastic 2 week holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two week holiday at villa Carpe Diem with amazing weather. Before leaving the uk we had plenty of contact with the owner

This villa really suited us as there were 8 of us -two families . My teenage daughters loved the room above the garage as they had their own entrance and could play their music loud...... And each room had their own bathroom.

The best part of this villa though is the outside. The pictures of the pool and the patio do them no justice. The pool, which the children lived in, is so much bigger and the outdoor area easily accommodated sunbeds, an eating area and room to play badminton. There were also plenty of inflatables in the garage to keep the children and adults happy.

The pool was cleaned twice a week and was never cloudy.

Martine was exceptional she met us at the villa and gave us loads of information about the local area, she also sorted any problems we had quickly (Thank you)

One of the highlights of the holiday was visiting the Big Guns near Mazarron. The castle is straight out of Disney and the views are outstanding. The road to the castle is also an experience.

Would we return to this villa. Yes as it catered all our different needs.

Just perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent a wonderful fortnight in this villa in the Costa Calida area. Our party included my elderly mother, who is blind, and her sister who is still recovering from a traumatic hip break. The two downstairs bedrooms with bathroom facilities for each were ideal for them and we enjoyed several meals on the outdoor covered terrace which was on the same level. Everyone in the area was so helpful and friendly, especially Sue and Martine and the lovely gentleman who so kindly delivered and picked up a wheelchair for us. We had some lovely days out and about in this area which was completely new to us, Cartagena, Murcia, Lorca, Aguillas, to name but a few and had some lovely walks along the promenades of the coastal villages. We also enjoyed some unexpected entertainment. The Harlequin Rock choir (a local choir) gave a fab outdoor 'concert' on the Friday morning by the restaurants on Camposol B, and we had no hesitation to go to hear their longer programme in Port Mazarron the following Saturday. Another evening we went to see two plays performed (in English) at a theatre in a nearby village and yet another evening sat outside till almost midnight listening to an excellent girl vocalist again on a stage just by the restaurant. It seems there are regular performances here even at this time of year. Food wise we couldn't complain - everything we had was first class and very reasonable and always served by friendly staff. (The portions are a bit big though!) Two of our favourites were Piccolo's and the Bavarian restaurant, both up by the supermarket and Sunday lunch at Liz's Cafe was superb. Two weeks of wall to wall sunshine made our holiday complete.

Highly recommended

  • 4 of 5

We found the. Villa to be even better than described It was very clean and well maintained all the furnishings were in excellent condition and comfortable and spacious

The outside area was great and offered plenty of space including shaded areas needed when the sun was blazing down as it was whilst we were there

The pool was larger than it looks on the photos and meant you could actually swim properly rather than the usual large bath one finds!

Prior to departure we were contacted by the owner not something we have always experienced and he was most helpful

There are good facilities locally and the new motorways meant it was only a short drive to the coast or Cartagena a lovely city well worth a visit

All in all an ideal villa for a few people to stop at and one we would have no hesitation in recommending or booking again

The villa is set in an urbanization surrounded by Sierras (hills) which provide a stunning backdrop for the property. The Region is the principal market gardening area of Spain and the local markets (Wednesday and Sunday) provide wonderful fruit, veg, garden plants etc: at very cheap prices. The Sierra Espuna national park is within 30 minutes drive. Safe sandy beaches are within 10/15 minutes drive at Peurto de Mazarron and Bolnuevo. The beautiful historical cities of Murcia, Cartagena and Lorca are all within 45 minutes drive. An extensive high quality shopping complex was opened just outside Murcia in 2010 which is comfortably reached within 30 minutes. This complex is right next to the new Real Murcia Football Ground. A little further afield are the wine making towns of Jumilla, Bullas and Mula.

Other Activities: go - karting; ten pin bowling
