Home from home villa situated in the heart of the beautiful Mar Menor Golf Resort. With a private heated pool and air-conditioning throughout, this villa is ideal whatever time of year you wish to visit. The garden boasts all day sun so the covered patio area will supply needed shade from the mid day heat. The fully equipped kitchen/utility room will provide all you need to cook at home or alternatively you can enjoy one of a number of restaurants or bars within minutes walking distance. The resort shop is only a minutes walk away for fresh bread and supplies daily should you need it as well as a gym, floodlit tennis court, floodlit paddle courts, large communal pool and the use of the spa facilities at the 5 star Intercontinental Hotel. Should you wish to venture away from the tranquillity of the villa, the beautiful safe, sandy beaches of the Mar Menor are only 5 minutes drive away. The area is renowned for water sports, diving and all year round sun. Secure Wi-fi is provided free of charge.
Our family lives in Lutterworth, near Leicester in the Midlands. We have two teenage boys who are both very active and love the variety of sports the resort and surrounding area offers. As we both work we look forward to our holidays in the sun. We bought the villa in 2004 when the resort was in the early stages of being developed and have enjoyed watching it grow into a very beautiful place.

As a family with two growing children we were looking for a place in the sun that had easy access to safe, beautiful beaches and that was quick and easy to get to from the local airport. We also needed our own pool incase we wanted a day off from the sand and access to a golf course for the grandparents who are keen golfers.
We wanted to be able to go on holiday but know that we had all the comforts of home waiting for us. Luckily for us we found the Mar Menor resort.
The added bonus for us are the extra amenities the resort offers such as restaurants, bars, paddle courts and play areas for children to name but a few. We love that we can have a quiet barbeque at the villa or take a 5-minute stroll to one of the restaurants near by.
We have found that having air-conditioning in all the bedrooms is a must during the hot summer months and on the flip side a heated pool in the cooler months is essential for a comfortable swim.
Our central location on the resort means that everything is so accessible. The resort shop is less than a minutes walk which means hot bread for breakfast isn’t a chore. As we holiday at the villa ourselves too, we have made every effort to make it feel like a home from home.
The villa was fantastic. Had everything you could need for a family break. Our baby loved the heated pool, the grandparents loved the location of the villa which was superbly central for walking & the parents loved having our own space & the mod cons in the kitchen which you often don't get abroad. We will definitely be returning in the future to the wonderful Villa Blanca! Clarke Family May 2012
We had a fantastic holiday in a villa that was home from home. We loved the pool and the amenities were excellent. The villa was in a beautiful location and we all managed to relax for the whole week. The golf facilities on site are also excellent. Smethem family April 2013
The villa is in a perfect location. It was so easy to get from the airport and we found the resort shop very handy. We did hire a car and found several lovely beaches. We have holidayed in many villas and this is the first time we have rebooked for the following year. The Fielding family June 2013
My family of 4 (2 kids 8 and 10) spent a great week at this fantastic villa during June half-term 2016.
The villa has plenty of space, was spotlessly clean inside and out, the swimming pool is crystal clear and the pool heating (which opted to pay for) kept it very warm. There is astro-turf in the garden which looks very smart and is really soft to walk and sun-bathe on.
The air-con throughout was great on the hotter days. Wi-Fi wasn't lightning fast but could comfortably cope with several devices and never dropped out.
The kitchen had every utensil we needed and all the appliances we used (dishwasher, cooker, microwave, kettle, washing machine) were clean, modern and efficient - unlike some of the archaic devices we've encountered at other villas).
Another great thing was the lack of bugs. Not a single mosquito or wasp was seen (I can't vouch for that being the case year-round though!)
The villa is situated literally 1-minute's walk from the centre of the complex (There is no noise from the complex to disturb the peace though.) where, amongst other things, there is a pub, restaurants and a little Spar supermarket which despite its small size, sold literally everything we needed (including freshly baked baguettes and pastries, fruit and veg, ice-creams and, most importantly, every form of alcoholic beverage known to man) at very reasonable prices.
Just outside the complex, about 10 mins walk away is a strip of bars and restaurants and the ones we ate and drank in were pretty good.
Los Alcazares is a short drive away. It's got a nice beach some great ice-cream places and some really good, cheap restaurants.
The villa owner was very easy to deal with, replying to emails and providing information and recommendations very quickly and we got our security deposit back within 24 hours of getting home. The people who look after the villa locally were also very helpful and quick to respond to emails and make sure we got settled in fine.
I've given the villa a five-star rating. It's not five-star like a five-star hotel, but I could not find fault with anything about it so I'm not giving it less. I thoroughly recommend!
We have just returned from a fantastic family holiday at this superb villa. On a fabulous resort, kitted out with everything you could wish for and the best pool and garden we have ever rented, our kids had a ball. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Casa Blanca.
Just returned from a wonderful 12 days in Mar Menor Golf Resort. The Villa was immaculate and offered everything you would need for a family holiday. The pool was a great size, very safe for children. By the end of our holiday our 4 year old was swimming without his armbands ( supervised of course). The astroturf was a bit hit also, lots of room for the boys to play. The Resort facilities are fabulous. The Supermarket is very reasonable priced and well stocked. The restaurants were very good and catered very well for the children. The boys loved the mini disco in the evenings. Very pleasant having a drink while the children had great fun. My husband and 9 year old son also managed a couple of rounds of golf which again was very reasonably priced. There is lots to see and do out of the Resort, Cartagena, Los Alcazares beach... Perfect property for a perfect family holiday. Thank you so much Gayle and Mike.
We had a lovely time at Mar Menor Golf resort. During Easter the water can be a cold for swimming but the pool was lovely and warm, allowing our children hours of fun swimming. The house is close to the amenities (supermarket, golf, bars) which meant we could walk everywhere on site. You would need a car for beaches, which were also lovely. I would definitely book again.
We spent Christmas in Spain to visit family nearby. We have been to the resort and hotel before. For us the golf course and having a massage at the spa are a great attraction ! the weather was very pleasant, so we could enjoy being outside. Gayle was extremely helpful and courteous during all our communications, nothing seemed to much to help us along. The villa was equipped with everything you could need to enjoy your stay. Only wish was for a double bed in the master bedroom!
Our family of 6 stayed at the villa for the second time over the past couple of years and loved it as much as we did the first time. The villa is extremely home from home and very well equipped, the pool is gorgeous and the weather was very kind! We stayed for two weeks and didn't go out of the complex once! There are plenty of eating places to walk to and a wide variety to choose from. We will certainly come back to stay again x
The beaches of the Mar Menor are perfect for every taste. The sandy, safe coastline is great for families with small children but for the more adventurous, all sorts of water sports are available. The area is renowned for its diving and sailing with several diving clubs in the area.
The nearest airport is Murcia (San Javier) which is only 15 minutes away. Alternatively, we are only 55 minutes from Alicante. Both airports are served by a wide range of low cost airlines. As the resort offers all you need, car hire is not essential. However, to see the beautiful surrounding area it is recommended.
The local towns of Los Alcazares and Torre Pacheco are only a 5 minute drive and both have a wide range of restaurants and bars. The cosmopolitan yet historic cities of Cartengena and Murcia are also within easy reach by car. There are markets in different towns on most days and a list of these is supplied in the villa, along with a map!
As well as golf, the resort offers tennis and paddle tennis for a small hourly fee. It also has a small gym with limited equipment which is free or a more well equipped gym which is available for a small fee. Within the villa you will find a welcome pack with all the opening times for the local supermarkets and other information that may be of use during your stay.
