Spacious self-catering apt with secure underground parking though car not necessity owing to perfect location.Situated on the neck of a grassy headland with miles of clean, safe beaches on either side and close to the delightful new marina and stylish promenade.This immaculate fully furnished self-catering flat overlooks a park which mixes palm and jakaranda tree lined gardens with play areas to suit all ages from infants to teenagers to 100 yr olds and includes swings, skate park, 5 aside football pitch as well as an outdoor gym.

We believe we have equipped the apartment with everything you will need for a happy holiday. Sleeps 5/6 - 2 bedrooms, one with double bed and second with twin beds plus sofa bed in the lounge. The large balcony overlooks the lovely park and is equipped with patio table and 4 chairs (others can be moved outside) Communal solarium.

Puerto de Mazarron, Murcia: Parque del Faro apartments are nestled on a headland in a perfect location for access to all local amenities, beaches, shops and harbour with its wonderful restaurants, promenade and views. Watch the fishermen bringing in their catch in the commercial harbour or admire the luxury yachts in the newly rebuilt leisure marina. Why not walk up to the Faro (lighthouse) and watch the sun rise or set in spectacular fashion. The atmosphere is relaxed and the views over the bay and behind to the mountains are wonderful. This is not a place for those seeking package holiday entertainment but one where you can recharge the batteries on a wide choice of beaches, enjoy the local sports scene or simply watch the world go by. There are restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets but if you want a McDonald's you can always go to Cartagena which is 20 minutes away (approx 6 euro by bus ) and also has a rich Roman history, including amphitheatre 19th century submarine & museums which will keep historians of any age occupied for hours. Take a trip around the bay in Cartagena and learn more about the history of this ancient harbour which still caters for submarines and ocean liners or take a dolphin watching cruise in Puerto de Mazarron. There really is something for everyone!

Mazarron has a wonderful array of beaches to suit every taste. The promenade beach follows the sweep of the bay towards La Azohia to the East and is perfect for children aged 0 to 100! To the West there are fine sandy beaches with surf and beach Volleyball at Bolnuevo. Playa de la Reya is a lovely cove with fine sand next to the smaller marina. Restaurants can be found all along the coastline along with tree lined promenades and walk ways. A tourist information pack is provided in the apartment with details of many different sites, activities and restaurant suggestions and recommendations.

The Castillitos or 'Guns of Mazarron' as they are affectionately known lie to the east of La Azohia at the top of a mountain road which is not for the faint hearted. The drive and views are fabulous and military historians will find the 14 inch Vickers built guns and now derelict buildings fascinating. The drive from Isla Plana through the 'forgotten valley' is wonderful and the old customs house which looks like something out of Zoro is worth a stop.

Further inland the fort at Lorca provides a fascinating insight into the history of the area but beware you may be tapped on the shoulder by a medieval knight. The Sierra Espuna provides miles of mountain and forest trails for walkers and cyclists and picnic areas as well as scenic drives and the opportunity to see wild boar and North African mountain goats.

At the end of September Cartagena comes alive with lavish re-enactments of the Roman defeat of new Carthage. Some 2000 locals take part in this event and families are loyal to their roots! Mazarron's fiesta is in mid April (see Tourist info website)

A Phoenician wreck lies in the bay just off Isla beach in Puerto de Mazarron and the Roman fish factory next to the harbour is fascinating.

Out of season Puerto de Mazarron provides warm weather and relaxation away from the colder northern European winters. In season it is a vibrant family holiday resort catering for all interests and ages. A traditional holiday destination for Spanish families which is becoming recognised as a little gem by savvy visitors who return year on year.

About Anne Oliver

Hi, this apartment is our family's holiday home which we use during the winter months primarily. We are a family of 5 living between the Lake District and Morecambe Bay and so have benefit of dividing our time between two very beautiful locations.

Anne Oliver purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Anne Oliver chose Puerto de Mazarrón

We love Puerto de Mazarron because of the family atmosphere and the fact that it is still a Spanish town with wonderful beaches, restaurants and markets. There is so much history to explore and every time we visit we find a new beach to explore or vineyard to visit. The apartment is located within a short, flat 120 metre walk from the lovely marina, fishing port and promenade so ideal for families with young children and people with reduced mobility. Perfect for early morning and late evening strolls.

What makes this apartment unique

I think the fact that my guests return year on year speaks volumes for the flat and its location. My local "team" do a fabulous job of caring for the apartment and welcoming and supporting my guests. I could not do without them. The flat is always spotless and repairs and faults corrected as soon as humanly possible. The apartment is equipped with everything to cook full meals and even has a water purifier so there is no need to buy bottled water. The underground parking and air con are invaluable in the summer months. We have never regretted buying the flat for a second and look forward to spending more time there as we hit retirement age.

Amazing week.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. It was well positioned for the harbour, the shops and some really good restaurants. Watching the sunset from the balcony, over the mountains, was amazing. Would definitely return again

Fantastic Property/Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located within a five minute walk of the Marina and the promenade. The apartment was exactly as described in the advertisement and was well furnished with all the appliances necessary for a good holiday break. My wife and I spent an enjoyable part of every evening on the balcony, watching the children playing in the park across the road from the apartment. The main purpose for our visit to this part of Spain was to look at different areas from Almaria in the south to Torriavieja and this flat in Purto Mazarron was the perfect base to work from with a view to purchasing a property in Spain in the future. I cannot end this review without a mention of Monicawho was very nice and helpful when we arrived at the flat, she let us in and explained the working of the underground garage to us and which parking bay had been allocated for our use, which meant our car and belongings were safe and secure. She also offered to help with anything we required during our stay.

All in all, a wonderful holiday break in an immaculate flat in a great location, my wife and i will definately recommend this flat to our friends, what more can I say!!!

With best regards, Anne

Winter sun in the Port

  • 5 of 5

We have recently enjoyed a splendid 4 weeks in this very comfortable, well appointed apartment. Despite experiencing 2/3 days of unusually cold weather, the apartment had excellent heating and there were numerous blankets and throws for extra warmth for the very cosy bed!

We were already very familiar with the area and always find new hidden jems to explore. A visit to the fishing port is interesting as the morning catch, usually sardines, and the main catch are unloaded and then auctioned.

We always enjoy the beach walk to Bolnuevo and never tire of the stunning scenery. So many places to go and we use the local buses to access some of these.

Our thanks go to Anne for her prompt attention to any queries and making our stay super comfy!! Thank you

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely feedback Marion and Tony. I am glad that you found the flat warm and comfortable in some of the worst weather experienced in Spain in decades. It is not often that the aircon is used for heating. At least the cold did not last. I am delighted that the new mattress met with your approval. I look forward to being of assistance in the future. With best regards Anne
