Overview

About the property

Apartment in Puerto de Mazarron, Murcia, Spain - 5 Mins From Centre Of Town But In Quiet, Restful Location overlooking the beautiful Bay of Mazarron

NEW for 2016, apartment is now fully airconditioned. We give you free: WiFi, UK tv, Final clean, meet and greet at convenient spot near property on arrival. Who wants to arrive, possibly in the dark, then struggle to find the location! The terrace/balcony gives fantastic views over the town and the Bay of Mazarron. The balcony is furnished with table and chairs, and is perfect for al fresco dining. With 1 double and 1 triple bedroom the apartment is ideal for families and the complex is also disability friendly with ramps, and a lift to all floors. The apartment has free wifi. Late evenings spent with a glass of wine and a snack on the balcony as the lights of Puerto de Mazarron slowly come on beneath the balcony (as we have done often!) are what holidays are all about. The apartment and complex is child friendly. The area still has a very Spanish feel, unlike some larger resorts and is in easy reach of several golf courses, including the La Manga club. Cartagena is nearby for history lovers, and local markets abound in Puerto and most surrounding towns. The local beaches (7!) are all superb and mostly blue flag. NEW for Summer 2016, air conditioning throughout apartment.

About Paul Bradbury

Hello, I am Paul Bradbury and I have been living here in this lovely little corner of Spain with my wife Marie since May 2008 when I was 54. We moved here from Cannock in the Midlands for a more relaxed lifestyle, and so far it has turned out as just that!

Paul Bradbury purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Paul Bradbury chose Cartagena - Mar Menor

Very few apartments in Puerto de Mazarron have a sea view like ours, and almost none are situated in an area which is both tranquil and a short walk from all the facilities in the town. AND the wifi works in the garden!

What makes this apartment unique

NEW for summer 2016, full air conditioning throughout apartment.

FREE WiFi, UK TV.

Fantastic Location with Outstanding Views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days from 17-27 in March and enjoyed every minute of our time in the apartment. Some of the highlights, to name but a few, included:

the comfy beds, the well equipped kitchen, the cosy living room with 2 good sofas, excellent Brit TV reception and a great internet service through out the apartment and by the pool.

All of this was trumped by the fantastic sea views from the south facing balcony.

Some mornings and evenings were cool and the gas fire in the living room kept us warm when needed.

We would highly recommend this apartment and the area in general for those of you that are looking for a restful break away from the daily grind.

Comfortable apartment in good location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was comfortable and well provisioned. There were books dvd's and cds for our use which is always a bonus.

We used the sunny balcony with great views over the bay to eat our meals and sit out on the evening. Puerto de Mazarron is a great location and everything is within easy walking distance of the apartment, we even joined a gym, plus there are good places to visit nearby.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

A lovely clean and spacious apartment with fantastic views front and back. The pool was quiet and very inviting. Numerous supermarkets within walking distance and the port was only 10/15 minutes walk. The Sunday market was at the bottom of the hill and a must to visit.

Viggos (in the port) is an excellent restaurant which we visited often and never disappointed us.

Communication with Paul was very good and he supplied an excellent taxi service for airport transfers.

We will definitely be going back next year.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious apartment in a fantastic location with great views front and back. The shared pool was quiet and refreshing and very welcoming. Numerous supermarkets in walking distance and the port a 10/15 minute walk. The local market is held on a Sunday and is just at the bottom of the hill - well worth a visit.

Communication with Paul was very good and he provides a great taxi service with airport transfers.

Viggos is our favourite restaurant and has never disappointed us with their wide variety of meals.

We would definitely recommend this apartment and we are even booking to come again next summer.

Paseo, blue flag.
Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The nearest and most popular beach is 5 to 10 mins walk away and fronts onto "the Paseo" Puerto de Mazarrons promenade. It, like many of the others here is classified as blue flag and is spotlessly cleaned every morning. At least 9 other beaches within a short drive some of which are half-empty even at the height of the summer season.

Travel:

Puerto de Mazarron is in easy reach of 3 airports, Murcia (San Javier) 40 mins, Alicante (El Altet) 60mins and Almeria 70 mins. All 3 are served by the usual budget airlines, Monarch, Easyjet, Ryanair, Jet2 and Flybe depending on your departure airport. Car hire in Spain is cheaper than the UK. We can also offer airport transfers at competitive prices.The road system from all 3 airports is quick and relatively uncrowded. It is possible to drive down from Santander in a day.

Distances:

Mazarron main town 5kms

Cartagena, lovely old city/seaport with great shopping 30kms

Murcia City, regional capital with zoo and water park 40kms

La Manga, "the strip" and the Mar Menor inland sea. 40kms

Vera, with aqua park 50 kms

Further Details:

Puerto de Mazarron is a lovely town with an authentic Spanish feel. Plenty of supermarkets and shops to choose from including an English Supermarket if you have a favourite tea/coffee/variety! Local, good value markets in Puerto and most surrounding towns. All towns, large or small, have regular Fiestas, mainly in Spring or Autumn.

Good quality Spanish and English bars and restaurants abound, especially for seafood lovers. Chinese food is excellent and very cheap. Three good Indian restaurants for curry aficionados, all a short walk away.

Puerto has had a lot of new investment in the last 3 years and now boasts one of the smartest Marinas in the South of Spain, surrounded by shops and nice bar/restaurants. The "Paseo" which is what we would call the promenade has this year been completely renovated and is now absolutely beautiful. No one rushes you out of the restaurants here and tarrying over a meal or drink at the Marina and watching the Spanish families promenading up and down is one of our favourite activities! For the younger (or young at heart) the new marina area has several "club" type bars which stay open till the small hours offering a variety of music and dancing. This part of the port has a definite yottie/clubby feel to it now, unlike the older paseo which still retains its more traditional Spanish ambiance, meaning there is something for all ages to enjoy.

Watersports, fishing and tennis all available locally. Bike and mountain bike hire available locally. Go kart circuit and tenpin bowling alley within 10 minutes walk of the apartment though well out of earshot.
