Golf: A quality 18 hole golf course is part of the urbanization, less than 5 minutes drive away from the villa. Handicap certificate is essential before guests can play on the course. Unlike many Spanish courses, it is undulating and has tree lined fairways ensuring a 'mature' aspect throughout the 18 holes.

Typically a 'menu de Dia' (3 courses plus a drink) for approx 10 Euros!!!
Beaches and Places to Visit: We provide written details of 'local beaches' and 'places to visit' to all our guests.
Fantastic villa, roomy, clean, private and such a quiet lovely location that as very easy to find from Alicante airport. Plenty of shops nearby including a great English butcher for the bbq packs!! Kids lived in the pool and my wife and I enjoyed the local sangria! Got it saved in my favourites now and we will be back!
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
A sweet and tidy lovely villa .The neighbourhood is quietness and clean .
The house is cool by noiseless fan in every bedroom .Outside ,the swimming pool
is very clean by a regular upkeep .
We really recommend this villa .
A very special thank for the owner ,and his agent in Spain ,for their delicate help .
We stayed in Villa Carpe Diem for two weeks this summer and had a great vacation. Already before leaving for Spain, we had good and frequent contact with the owners, who responded quickly and were most helpful.
You will find Villa Carpe Diem as described and visualized on this page. We found the place nice and clean. The swimming pool was cleaned two times a week.The local representative was very kind and helpful.
Our two weeks flew by. Our kids practically lived in and by the pool and we did many day trips to cities and sights nearby; Lorca, Totana, Sierra de Espuña, Cartageña, etc.
We can highly recommend this place if you need a place with lots of space, a great pool area and a tranquil neighborhood.
What a lovely villa, really enjoyed our stay. Feels like a home away from home, and will be back again.... The pool is a great bonus, and the BBQ area was well used!
Weather was fantastic, and the restaurants, although a drive away, are well worth the trip. Still feels very Spanish outside of Camposol, but very easy to get along within the direct area, even with our pigeon Spanish.
We already stayed at "Carpe Diem" twice: in June 2011 and May/June 2012 and we enjoyed both stays very much!! The villa is perfect for a family with 5 children- we´ve never had a house with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms before!
Everything in the villa was very clean and comfortable. For us it was also important to have a washing machine and enough space to dry clothes and towels from the beach. The kitchen was perfect, too.
During the days especially the children spent plenty of time in the pool and in the evenings we often went to the beach. We also went to quite many places nearby and more far away: Murcia, Sierra Espuna, Cartagena, Mazarron, Lorca, Granada, Cabo de Gata, Malaga (with a stay at the youth-hostel in Malaga for one night)
The mail-contact to the owners was (and still is) very friendly and Martine -who looked after the villa- was very helpful and kind!
We hope to come back to the villa very soon!!!
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 2007 which is comfortably reached within 40 minutes. This complex is right next to the new Real Murcia Football Ground (Real Murcia play in La Liga with Real Madrid, Barcelona etc:). A little further afield are the wine making towns of Jumilla, Bullas and Mula.
Other Activities: go - karting; ten pin bowling
