Murcia is a university city in southeastern Spain and the capital of the region of Murcia. Plaza Cardinal Belluga is the city's architectural showpiece, where the ornate cathedral, with its mash-up of styles from Gothic to baroque, and the colorful 18th-century Palacio Episcopal stand in striking contrast to the modern 1990s ayuntamiento (city hall) annex by architect Rafael Moneo.
Sucina is a small village consisting of a mixture of old and new. The church and its square are still at the heart of the village and there are some old houses to be found in the surrounding streets. There are also many newly built houses, and the British influence can be seen in the church square with the cafes which advertise 'fish and chips'.
Los Alcazares is situated right on the shores of the Mar Menor. It is very seasonal as it has a resident population of about 12,000 which increases to almost 100,000 during the summer!!
Los Alcazares has a fantastic coastline with over 7 kilometres of sandy beaches which give direct access to the warm waters of the Mar Menor. Parallel to these beaches and running the entire length of town is the extremely long promenade, which is great for walking and in the quieter winter months cycling. The town centre is relatively spread out and has a good selection of shops whilst the Bahia Centre in the Los Narejos area is packed with international eateries which are always busy during high season. The street market is held every Tuesday morning in Los Alcazares and if you miss that one there is also one in Los Narejos on a Saturday morning.
Lo Pagan is situated on the north shore of the Mar Menor and has merged with San Pedro del Pinatar to become one big town. Lo Pagan has a beautiful beach, promenade and small marina. During the summer months there is a lively funfair beside the marina which adds to the seaside atmosphere.
Lo Pagan is most famous for its mud baths. These are free, which is great news if you have a large family to keep occupied. All ages can use the mud baths from 1 to 100, but only the truly hardy indulge during the winter months. The mud baths are located at the end of the beach and the start of the salinas walking and cycling route out to sea. Simply walk down the steps, cover yourself with the therapeutic mud, said to be good for all types of skin complaints, aches and pain, dry off in the sun, then re-enter the water to wash it all off!
Ideal for family rentals, our apartment is just a few short steps from the pool, benefititing from a large terrace area with outside rattan furniture, washing machine, underground parking.
We have just retuned from this apartment after our friends recommended it and it was everything they said it would be . A fantastic location being on the ground floor and having its own garden . We spent many nights on the terrace having drinks and meals with friends . This is not just a golf resort as you do not have to play to stay here . It is a lovely relaxing place to come surrounded by olive and orange tree orchards.
This apartment is within easy reach of the numerous beaches only 20 min away by car, Will definitely be coming back . Great time was had.
We have just returned from this apartment and have nothing but good things to say about it and the resort . The pool is less than a minute away this is one of 18 pools you can use . The furniture and equipment in the apartment are 1st class. The golf course is literally on your door step offering a fantastic challenge . We had some great nights at the Hacienda bar and restaurant with some fab food.
We have stayed in the same apartment 3 times now as the location to the pool and golf course are 1st class .all you have to do is open the patio doors onto the terrace and walk through the small garden , and you are on the golf course . Alternately if you turn right you are at the pool . This apartment looks on to the mountains at the back so you can have a nice cool breeze in the mid day heat while having a meal or snack on the terrace area .Everthing is provided within the apartment including a washing machine so this make the luggage allowance much easier to achieve . Just a short 5 minutes walk will bring you to the centre of the Hacienda for the shops restaurant and bar areas , we will definitely be returning in 2016.
Thanks for the great times xx.
We have just had our second visit to this fantastic apartment we cannot say enough about its location and the facilities around it . Every household comfort is there. the outside eating area is fantastic and is a real gathering point for any friends and family you meet while you are visiting . The resort centre is only a 5 min walk away so not to far away for a cool beer in the bars within the center . You can use any of the 19 pools within the resort or if you want to travel to the many beaches it's only a 20 min drive away.
