About Mr John Healy
With 4 children it was important to us to have a guaranteed sunny break, with flexibility. We love having the choice of dining out, or simply barbequing on the balcony. The flexibility meant we didn't have to rush from the pool to dine out if we wanted to simply chill, eat alfresco and wander out for drinks & entertainment later. As the children got older, we were able to still watch them in the pool from the balcony. (30 seconds to get to the pool if necessary!) Also relaxing with a drink on the balcony knowing the younger children were safe in bed was priceless. We holiday here four times a year during Winter & Summer months as the Seasons here are wonderful. We love the Climate, food, flexibility, facilities, space and tranquility.
Mr John Healy purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Mr John Healy chose Diputación de Lentiscar
We purchased El Carmoli 2006, because we love the Sea view, beautiful sunrise & the rural Spanish sea side village with only a 10 min walk to the beach. In addition to a communal pool, we have a private pool 25.5ft x 14.5ft, which has totally enhanced this property. A relaxing treat to totally relax in privacy, bbq by the pool or drink on the balcony with sea view which is priceless. We love having the flexibility of not having to rush from the beach or pool to dine out if we wanted to simply chill, eat alfresco and wander out for drinks & entertainment later. Once here, we tend to stock up and not go very far at all……..We holiday here four times a year during Winter & Summer months as the Seasons here are wonderful. We love the Climate, food, flexibility, facilities, space & tranquility.
What makes this Villa unique
Private pool, communal pool, beautiful sea views, beach walk in 10 min, beach huts (peak season) promenade, bike hire, private sun bathing. Local Market, shops, bars restaurants nearby. Winter sun all year around, or much needed shade in the Summer. The quiet beach is not commercial, or packed in peak holiday times. It's important to us to recharge our batteries, as we have a busy business, family and social life. This property gives us back our sanity as we chill and get back to what its all about, healthy living, pacing yourself and re-energising. It allows us to reconnect with each other and the children. We walk or cycle everywhere, although driving is allowed! The next town Los Alcazares 5 min drive is busy with many bars, restaurants, shops and market places, so best of both worlds
Pool / Spa
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Had an amazing time the manager Ali sorted any issues immediately when we couldn't connect to wifi.
The pool was lovely and the views amazing just got mosquito bites in the second week.
Graham was great as he had a 9 seater bus and he taxi us around Ali as got his details.
Mandy was one of the cleaners who cleaned the villa and we got lost and couldn't find the villa she spotted us and showed us round the property and advised us on a few tips.
The owners left us some wine and water as it was my 50th which was a lovely touch.
Few little things the villa needed a mop and brush so that we could use whilst there incase of spilliges but all in all we had a great experience and would visit again you do need a car if you cant walk far and los Alcaczares is lovely with great beaches and plenty of bars and restaurants..
My husband and I stayed at Los Olivos and it was absolute bliss. The apartment was modren and clean and the view from the balcony was breathtaking. The balcony itself was big and had everything there you needed.The beds were very comfortable and loved the little splashes of colour around the rooms.The resort itself was great everything you needed, even without a car. Can't fault a thing, simply fabulous! We will be back next year.
The apartment was great with amazing views
We have stayed at this amazing apartment many times, and will come back time and time again. The apartment is well looked after and has the most brilliant view.
We love to walk along the coastal paths and return for a few glasses of wine and look out at the Mar Menor.
I hope you enjoy it to.
Tim & Diane
We stayed in the villa for October half term. We were looking for a quiet, relaxing week away with our kids, and we got exactly that.
Located 15 minutes from the airport, the transfer was quick and painless. We were very lucky with the weather which enabled us lots of pool time and to do our favourite thing, sitting on the roof terrace to eat breakfast in the sun. La Manga, with its many restaurants, isn't too far away, and closer still is Loz Alcazares, which has got everything you might require, from local shops and restaurants to a Lidl.
There is a beach and promenade at the bottom of the road in El Carmoli, but better ones to be found just a short ride away. Lots more to explore locally. We took trips to Cartagena and La Manga which were both well worth a visit.
When contacting the owner, they were swift to respond. We will look to visit again in 2016.
a rural paradise
I had a very pleasant stay at this villa. It was a taste of luxury to have your own pool. The house had everything you could possibly need with panoramic views from the roof terrace. It had the beach within walking distance and enough restaurants/ shops just a short distance away. With the option for more just a short drive to the nearest town. I will definitely be booking again, highly recommended.
A Great Place to Stay
We would recommend this property to someone who desires a good standard of accommodation, in a quiet area but within easy reach of a variety of attractions. The property was a home from home, very clean and airy. The generous private balcony at the top of the front is a must in the mornings (watch the sun come up over the Mar Menor). In the afternoon the rear terrace is a sun trap with a lovely pool to cool off. Inside all the latest mod-cons are provided and I particularity found the WIFI very useful. Los Urrutias is a nice village but we found we ventured more towards Los Alcazares for restaurants, shopping and beach. Take a trip to La Manga strip to see a contrast and treat yourself to lunch and a game of mini golf at the famous La Manga Club. We will be back to this place for sure.
