Description (written by the owner)

BEAUTIFUL LOW-RISE BEACHFRONT COMMUNITY. Well kept gardens, with 2 pools and tennis court. The perfect place for families and children.

ALDEAS DE TARAY CLUB, VENECIOLA, LA MANGA del MAR MENOR.

FIRSTLINE MEDITERRANAEN SEA COMPLEX. FRIENDLY AND SAFE, WITH ALL AMMENITIES ON SITE OR CLOSE BY, WITH THE ADDED BENEFIT OF THE BEACHES OF THE MAR MENOR BEING ONLY A 2 MINUTE STROLL AWAY. EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR THAT PERFECT BEACH HOLIDAY IN THE SUN AND/OR TO EXPLORE THIS UNIQUE AREA OF SPAIN.

Aldeas de Taray Club is towards the northern end of the La Manga strip, (Gran Via, Salida 142) about 4 km further on past the Tomas Maestre Marina.

The urbanisation consists of approx’ 250 private low rise apartments (predominately Spanish owners), built in a traditional Spanish Village style, around established gardens with 2 large communal swimming pools, a tennis court and 3 restaurants. The private, south facing, community promenade has a superb restaurant and tapas bar, benches for sitting, relaxing and enjoying the view, steps leading directly into the Mediterranean Sea and also gives access to the sandy beach. Alternatively the beaches of the Mar Menor are only a 400-metre stroll away in the opposite direction.

This first floor apartment is less than 50m from the beach and is reached by a short flight of steps, which leads onto a huge secluded communal south facing sun terrace, which is shared by less than 10 other apartments. There are no other apartments above or below this accommodation.

Enjoy the uninterrupted sea views, looking over the adjacent Veneciola Golf Course, from the lounge, front terrace and one bedroom.

The apartment is fully equipped and in addition to the usual Spanish TV there is also English TV plus DVDs, music CDs and books to read. A baby cot and high chair are available if required, and you will also discover a few toys and games for children. Plus Free Private Wi-Fi Internet Access in the apartment and free community Wi-Fi around the pools and garden area.

There is everything you need here to enjoy your holiday except that all guests are required to provide their own beach towels.

.

The owners first came here over 17 years ago and fell in love with area. They now stay on the complex during the summer, and are always available for futher local information, advice or service requirements.

They also offer watersking and wakeboarding sessions or instruction if required. Alternatively their speedboat can be chartered, by the hour or day, for cruises and snorkelling trips around the islands.

GENERAL AREA INFORMATION

La Manga del Mar Menor itself is a narrow strip of land between two seas, the Mediterranean and the Mar Menor (Europe’s biggest salt water lagoon of approx 60 sq miles and is 21km in length). Apartments, villas, hotels, restaurants, small shopping areas and the superb Tomas Maestre Marina take up most of the strip but there are a few undeveloped areas towards the northern end. There are more than 40 km of sandy beaches to choose from on both sides and it is always possible to find a seemingly deserted spot to enjoy even in height of summer.

The average annual temperature is 17 C, and the average for the months of June, July, August and September is above 21 C. Winter is very mild, with the average temperature in the cold months not falling below 10 C. The area receives very little rainfall and boasts 320 days and 3000 hours of sunshine per year.

Because of its’ unique geographical formation, clean water and favourable weather conditions, the Mar Menor is like a gigantic swimming pool, where watersports can be practised without any dangers. It offers infinite possibilities to the lovers of sailing, wind and kite surfing, water skiing and scuba diving. Here there is no need to catch the latest weather forecast or wait for the best summer days to enjoy the ideal conditions for going out to sea.

For those wishing to explore the area further, small towns (that used to be fishing villages) flank the coast of the Mar Menor, many with local markets and traditional Spanish tapas bars and restaurants. There is a regular daily ferry service across the Mar Menor from Tomas Maestre Marina to Santiago de la Ribera.

Lovers of art and history will discover that Cartagena is not only the natural port for the region of Murcia but is also one of the oldest cities in Spain.

The Regional Park of Calblanque offers a vast area of unspoilt countryside that can be explored by car, bicycle or on foot.

This area also offers several Golf courses within a short drive away, including the 3 quality championship courses at the well-known La Manga Club. There is, however, a 9-hole course and driving range adjacent to the apartment. (Not open for 2017)

The fabulous Tomas Maestre Marina is just a few minutes drive away from the apartment, (or just 2 stops away on the regular local bus service) where numerous restaurants and bars can be found with romantic sunset views of the Marina and Mar Menor. The commercial centre here has a large supermarket with a very good selection of fresh fruit, meat, fish and vegetables. Other shops, banks and a pharmacy are also situated here, together with a small market on Saturday mornings.

There are other restaurants, small shops and beach bars within walking distance of the apartment.

Would highly recommend

If you want somewhere which is on a clean and tidy complex, has everything you need and only a stones throw from the beach, this is your place. We have just spent a fab 10 days staying at this apartment and found it a great base to explore Mercia. There is a regular bus which takes you from one end of the strip to the other, for less than €2, we went on the ferry which runs daily over to San Javier takes about half an hour €5 and from there we were able to catch a bus to Torreveja and other places of interest. From stepping foot of the plane Gary the owner was great, he collected us from the airport for a lot less than a taxi would cost, and made sure that there were some necessities in the fridge as it was quite late when we arrived. Gary also took us shopping on our first day which was great as it helped us to get our bearings. As he has had a property in the area for a number of years Gary was very knowledgeable about the area and even took us on detours to show us places of interest which we probably wouldn't of seen otherwise. Eating out there are various resteraunts within walking distance, and I can honestly say we didn't have a bad meal, they were all nice but our favourite place had to be the beach hut which served a delicious paella.... a must if you are going here! Overall a great place to stay with everything you need in an apartment which is nice clean tidy. Book to stay here you won't be sorry :) we will be back x

Perfect location for a sunny beach holiday

We were almost put off by the fact there was no air-con in the property, but I am so glad I read all the reviews! The property is located right by the sea and sea the breeze renders air-con unnecessary. The coolness of the property is a haven from the sun. We received excellent communication from Gary from the start and his directions from Murcia airport were spot on. The property isn't hard to find at all and took abut 40 minutes easy drive. Gary met us as soon as we arrived and was very welcoming and patient (our daughter was a bit fed up and ready for bed by this point) The apartment was as we expected; two spacious bedrooms separated by a bathroom. The kitchen looked onto the lounge then through to the balcony. It was clean, tidy and had everything you would need to have a comfortable stay. There was even books and dvds to use. Gary had even got us a welcome pack - The wine and beer were a lovely way for my husband I to relax into the holiday. The property is one of several low rise flats that have private access to two large swimming pools surrounded by well kept lawns and shrubbery. Each pool has a shallow end which is separated from the main, deeper pool. No worrying that little ones will suddenly float off! You will get wrist bands for the pool access, this shows the lifeguard that you have the right to use the pools. (These do seem to be the nicest pools in the area). When we were there the pool did close from 3-5pm for cleaning and then closed again at 8pm for the night. A minutes walk from the apartment, back towards the road, is a delicious bakery. We would get our croissants from there each morning, then head back there for ice-cream after dinner. There is also a couple of restaurants next to the bakery, between them they are open most of the day. They serve a variety of food that was always tasty. The sea was 30 seconds walk away with a promenade that took you to the main stretch of sandy beach. Another beach was about a 5 minute walk from the apartment, cross over the road and head straight. We preferred this beach as the stretch of water only just came up to out thighs for quite a distance out and it was quite calm. We were even treated to a Spanish version of the Red Arrows - Amazing! The supermarkets are a short drive away. There is a large Spar supermarket just before the bridge, this does close for siesta, and then just after the bridge there is another large supermarket that doesn't close for siesta. Throughout our holiday Gary made sure we had settled in well and had all the info we needed. We were very lucky as we got to go out with Gary on his amazing speedboat. If you are into water sports, or fancy trying it, I would definitely recommend you arrange this with Gary before you get out there. He is passionate about water sports and most importantly he is qualified! We had a brilliant time here. We found it relaxing with enough pools and beaches to keep everyone happy for a week. Gary was a huge part in us enjoying our holiday, he is such a nice man and very happy to help.

Fabulous stay

We had the pleasure to stay at gary and lyn very well equipped and lovely apartment. Everything thing you could want or need is catered for. Wonderful views and some superb eateries and bars in the area. Lyn and Gary were fantastic hosts and really looked after us. The area the apartment is located in is a predominantly Spanish area which just added to our lovely holiday.

Aldeas de Taray club La Manga

Would highly recommend Aldeas de Taray club La Manga. Our apartment was really nice with good views. The owner Gary Franklin was there to meet us, Gary is not only a great owner but a super guy and went way beyond any expectations, we have already booked again for later in the season. The weather and area, which we knew a little were great too. So go visit without any concerns. Highly recommended. Susan and Andy

An excellent holiday

The complex itself is clearly respected by the people staying there. The pools were kept clean and everyone we came across were so friendly. The apartment was fantastically clean and tidy with little touches to start the holiday well. A very welcoming bottle of wine, reliable wifi connection, decent selection of books and dvds but also a lovely terrace to relax on. We could look from the rear patio area and watch the sea. A lovely atmosphere all round. Our 3 year old had an amazing time on the beaches and the play areas. Will definitely return. X

Lovely short break

Just returned from a short break. The accommodation was spotless and well equipped. The views from the balcony were a delight as was the pool area. A beautiful place to relax and recharge but with plenty of things to see and do not far away. Good sandy beaches nearby if you feel like a change from the pool. Gary was a mind of information about the local area with recommendations of where to eat etc.

Great holiday

We have just returned from a 10 day holiday staying at Gary's apartment. We had a lovely break which was aided by Gary's fantastic hosting. We took 2 boys aged 13 who learnt to wake board through Gary's tuition. It was their first time wake boarding and they are now hooked. Gary went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and gave us a tour of the marina and local area in his boat. The accommodation suited the four of us perfectly. The British TV and DVD selections were a welcome addition for the boys. The apartment is located in a prime position and is in a quieter area of the la manga strip. We didn't hire a car and coped without one. The local bus service serves the la manga strip well. However, if we were to visit again we would probably hire a car to make supermarket shopping easier and explore a little more. We used the mar menor beach more than the med as our boys loved playing on the large inflatables located on that side. Communication with Gary from start to end was fantastic. We would certainly look to return to this apartment.

What a wonderful memorable first visit to La- manga and stay in Taray

My wife and I would very much like to thank Gary and Lynn for the warmth of their welcome and help during our stay at their apartment in La- manga. Nothing was too much trouble to them. Gary was particularly helpful with directions to Murcia city, Cartagena and Los Alcazares as we like to get around whilst on holiday. He even recommended places to eat and where to shop for food. What a guy. The apartment is true home from home with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The views from the balcony are great and make eating out there particularly special. The area was quiet which is what we like and in true Spanish style. Beaches amazing both on the Menor and the Mediterranean. Was sorry to leave after our 10 night stay. Could not recommend highly enough. Thanks again Gary and Lynn, we'll be back. Alan and Jacqueline

Family holiday kids ages 10, 7 and 4

We had a really good holiday, Gary was very helpful and made us feel very comfortable. The pool area specifically is one of the nicest we have seen on the strip. The apartment was very functional, allowed us to have some meals from home. The only negative for us was the majority of family staying here were Spanish so our kids didn't have other families to play with. This is good in the respect that you definitely feel as though you have been in Spain which we would actually prefer but it does mean we had to keep the kids entertain. We all had a really nice time and will definitely be returning to La Manga and the Murcia area.

Thank you Gary!

Gary was really friendly and kind, ready to help us for every need. The house is not huge but comfortable; there's no air conditioning but the place is windy, and the funs are sufficient. The beaches are really close, both the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean Sea.

Would highly recommend

This is our second stay in the amazing apartment. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Perfect for couples and families, as you have the best of both worlds with the Mar Menor and Mediterranean sea. Great restaurants, but would recommend a car to explore this great place and surrounding towns, also water sports close by and a harbour. The owner of this apartment has a speed boat for hire for wakeboarding and water skiing lessons or just a wonderful ride around the strip for snorkelling:-). What are you waiting for!!!

Another cracking visit!

We've stayed here a number of times now but we've never reviewed it before. As always, the apartment was immaculate on arrival, the kitchen well equipped and an array of things available to help you have a comfortable and enjoyable holiday. There was a large selection of books/dvd's/videos and cd's. There's a number of set top boxes to watch television, with English channels and well explained instructions to help with this. The balcony overlooks the small golf course and the Med and is a beautiful place to sit at any time of the day. There are a couple of good sized swimming pools, with plenty of space. The little bakery/café type place at the front of the complex does superb pastries and ice cream and is open for breakfasts which are very reasonably priced (2coffees, 3 BIG pastries and 2 orange juices was under £5!). The local area is nice and quiet with some lovely beaches and great for swimming/snorkelling either in the Med or in the Mar Menor. There are a couple of restaurants on site but my advice would be to go to the nearby marina. There are plenty of bars/reataurants around the boats, with some overlooking the Mar. A stunning place in the evening. Gary advised us to visit 'Martin' who owns one of the restaurants.(cant remember the name of it). The food was outstanding and he is a very good host. Speaks perfect English and was brilliant at entertaining my 6year old! Gary took us out a couple of times on his boat. He is absolutely superb at teaching waterskiing/wakeboarding and is VERY safety conscious. Even my son managed to have a go on a kneeboard and now wont stop talking about it!! All in all, another excellent holiday at an excellent apartment owned by a very helpful and caring couple. You wont be disappointed by this place!

Great

We arrived on 14th September 2013 to beautiful weather 28 degrees, the apartment was very clean, kitchen very well equipped. Location was perfect, not too busy and plenty of very nice bars and restaurants. The Sunday market was good fun. Gary was very helpful and welcoming. Had a trip out on Gary's speedboat which was fabulous, I am nervous of boats and the sea but felt very safe with Gary and loved every minute of it. We have started planning our trip to La Manga for next year and hope to stay in the same apartment. Definitely take another boat trip, can't wait.

Definitely recommended!

We had a great stay in La Manga. The apartment was clean, spacious and well maintained. Gary and Lyn were very friendly and hospitable. We enjoyed the relaxation of the area but also had a great time on Gary's boat learning to water ski and wake board - Gary's patience and encouragement was second to none! Whilst the Aldeas de Taray area is quiet and relaxing, there was plenty to keep the family occupied including golf and tennis. We highly recommend using this property.

Very nice and relaxing week

Our stay at this apartment was perfect. The apartment was very nice and clean, everything we needed for our stay. The beds were very comfy and the view of the sea is amazing . The pools were good. Very quite the time we went so it felt like we had our own private pool. Both Gary and Lyn were very nice and helpful , their on hand if needed any advice about the area and contacted us in advance to see if we needed anything in due to us arriving after shops closed. Would be very happy to go back and stay in the apartment again. Due to us not hiring a car Gary was very helpful and helped us arrange transport to and from the airport. A very nice and relaxing week.

June stay

Our holiday in La Manga was excellent. Our only difficulty was choosing whether to swim in the deep blue sea of the Mediterranean or the warm waters of the Mar Menor!! Both were excellent...and then of course there were the two lovely swimming pools within the complex to choose from too! Our water-obsessed children were truly spoilt for choice. The accommodation could not be faulted either. Gary and Lynn were meticulous and everything was as described. Very clean and comfortable with additional touches such as buckets, spades and games provided for the children and plenty of reading material for the grown-ups to help you unwind. Our questions were always promptly answered by Gary and Lynn and if they didn't know, then they made sure they would find out for you. We even had an excellent day out on Gary's Speedboat cruising the Mar Menor whilst hubby learnt to Wakeboard! Local restaurants in the area were also nice. We really cannot fault this holiday and would thoroughly recommend it to any couple or family wanting a relaxing stay in this region of Spain.

Our part of Spain

Aldeas de Taray is a superb, quiet location, short flight from the UK to Murcia and a half hour drive from airport to the Apartment. With the calm flat crystal clear waters of the Mar Menor on one side and the Med on the other you have the best of both worlds with young and older children. Plenty of water sports inc skiing, wind surfing and body boarding with water side friendly taverners on the beaches selling teas, coffee and ice cold drinks for the kids. The supermarkets have everything that you will find in England with household named brands, the selection of fish and meats is as good as anywhere with fresh salad & veg on a daily basis for cooking in house when not visiting the nearby marina or its waterfront restaurants. There is a bakers a short walk away from the apartment, with a small green grocers for milk etc. The lovely beaches are all around with a small but testing 9 hole golf course across the road along with a driving range. There are two heated swimming pools in the complex, which again is situated right on the waterfront. Gary and his Wife make you feel very welcome and they have looked after and cared for the apartment you stay in, it has full kitchen facilities along with Tv, DVD`s and books etc. We have enjoyed holidays here since our children were young, we have also had weekends away with friends with out the kids and went again in July last year as a family for two weeks, Gary is a keen water sport enthusiast and has taught our boys to water ski, knee board and wakeboard, its like coming home, as I said "Our part of Spain"

Would strongly recommend

We had a 10 day break with children aged 6 & 8 and would definitely be going again to the same resort/apartment which was clean, well presented and really could not be faulted. The facilities are very good for a small complex including many great restaurants within walking distance and especially the ice cream parlour which also bakes fresh bread daily. There are many great beaches along the La Manga Strip and the Harbour is also great for eating out. There are many supermarkets close by and would recommend hiring a car from the Airport to drive to these and getting about. You can just sit by the pools and stay on the complex or explore the La Manga area. Before going we were worried the kids would not enjoy but they cannot wait to go back, so we will be booking again soon.
