About Nigel Jealous

Wendy and Nigel Jealous, married in 1976, with 3 grown up children. We live in Ashby De La Zouch, Leicestershire, UK. We love holidaying as it allows us to indulge in our favourite hobbies, namely - relaxing, eating, drinking and golf. Our stunning penthouse on Mar Menor golf resort, is beautifully furnished, has a 65 sq m roof terrace boasting stunning views of the golf course, lake, swimming pools and mountains. There are numerous clean, safe, sandy beaches 5-10 mins drive away. It is very peaceful but close to the action! We also have a beautiful villa on Polaris Worlds 5 star flagship 'El Valle' Resort. Peaceful, but still offers families plenty to do besides golf. It has a Jack Nicklaus golf course, tennis, gym, private pool and other communal pools, restaurants, bars and shops.

Nigel Jealous purchased this villa in 2008

Why Nigel Jealous chose Murcia - Costa Calida

This region of Spain enjoys on average 320 of sunshine each year! Easy and cheap to get to with the low cost airlines. We often pop over for long weekends. Murcia (San Javier) Airport only 15-20 minutes away, Alicante Airport 45-50 mins. 22 quality golf courses all within a 15 minutes drive. A good selection of safe and clean beaches (Blue Flag) within 15 -20 minutes, as well as a good selection of restaurants and bars. Great seafood and steaks. No high rise apartment blocks, no high rise hotels, and especially no lager louts. Set in an area of National Parks with mountain views. This is a very traditional area of Spain. 20 minutes drive from the historic Cities of Cartagena (with its port) and Murcia (with its river running through) both are beautiful, with good shopping.

What makes this villa unique

Single storey luxury villa set on a stunning 5 star golf resort. The villa benefits from its own private pool set in large veranda area, with feature garden and water sculpture it also benefits from attractive planting. The outdoor lounge style seating area offers shade from the mid day sun, with its retractable roof canopy and retractable awning. The 'private' (not over looked) swimming pool and veranda area gets all day sun being south facing. The finish of the villa and furniture is of a very high standard, with most of the soft furnishing being hand bespoke made. There are 6 good quality lie down adjustable sun loungers. There is also an out door covered dining table and chairs to eat by the pool including a built in BBQ. 10 minutes gentle stroll to resort centre.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“perfect”

5 of 5 stars

we have just come back from a 10 day stay at this lovely villa. It is all you want in a villa holiday, pool excellent and all the mod cons that you need. Location is fine but you do need to drive, this was our first time driving and to be honest it was fantastic to have the freedom and knowing you can come back to a superb home base. I liked the fact that when you finish paying for the villa this end that's it no hidden charges. Ok only 1 restaurant on site but, when we came back from dining out it was very nice to pop in for a phew cocktails at a reasonable price. All in all a great holiday and the days of hotels are gone!!!

Beautiful Villa, perfect for all.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks in this lovely villa. 2 x adults with 10 year old and 14 year old. The property was modern and spotless on arrival and had every appliance and gadget imaginable, hair dryers and pool towels help keep luggage weight down. Comfortable beds and sofas to keep Mom happy with English TV, faultless wi-fi and games console for the kids. Clean and well maintained pool with plenty of comfortable outside space, toys and furniture. Easy reach of some fabulous eateries and scenery and overall impossible to criticise. I would recommend this villa to all age groups as it is safe and secure for children yet flat and spacious for the elderly. The area is quiet and perfect for a relaxing break and conveniently close to Murcia airport.

Perfect!

What a fabulous villa!

We have had a wonderful week at El Valle. The villa is immaculate, spacious, extremely comfortable and really well equipped. The pool is clean and a great size and there are plenty of places to relax both in the sun or the shade in the outside area.

The resort itself is very quiet but the supermarket is handy, has everything you need and has good opening times. The golf club does excellent food and is a lovely place to relax in the shade in the middle of the day or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.

We were glad we had a car as we wanted to go to the beach and have a couple of meals out and both of these were a 20 to 30 minute drive away.

The beach is lovely, very traditionally Spanish and the sea is as warm as a bath.

The airport is close by so only a short transfer time which is great.

We can't recommend this villa highly enough and hope we get the opportunity to come and stay again soon.

Kate, Mike, Andy, Katherine and Lily

Owner's Response: Judi Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our property. It makes our efforts and that of our fantastic managers worth while, hearing how much you enjoyed yourselves. We set out from day one to make our villa an important part of someones holiday experience and not just a place to stay! Fortunately not a single guest has disagreed with that, with many returning again and again. Wendy and I also love the views from the resort clubhouse over the golf course, lake and in the distance the sea. Wendy and I hope to see you again soon and hopefully your friends, colleagues and family. Thank you for trusting us with your holiday. Best wishes Wendy & Nigel

Superb, well appointed villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a quiet location, 15 minutes slow walk to the resort supermarket and restaurant. One of the best features is the privacy at the rear of the property where the children love the well maintained swimming pool. We have been going for 4 years which is the probably the best recommendation we can give the villa. Reassuringly it has been managed by the same local company during that period and we have never had the slightest issue with arrangements on arrival or departure. This is a very 'safe' let with no negative surprises at all. The resort is quiet and a car is essential. It's a great base to explore a great region of spain.
