Description (written by the owner)

Superb views from sun terrace. Close to La Manga sports/leisure complex. Large pool. 5 minutes walk to centre of typical Spanish town. Many local beaches close by.

Accomodation

This delightful light and airy townhouse featuring 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms is decorated and equipped to a high standard with the added attraction of a sun terrace on the roof stretching from the front to the back of the property with great views over the town to the rear and the mountains and distant Mar Menor to the front.

It has plenty of outside space both on the ground floor, through several terraces, and a sunroof. The driveway / front area has seating for 6, and a large Spanish BBQ.

Particular care has been paid to the quality of facilities and the comfort of guests. Downstairs has a large lounge area with very comfortable suite offering retractable footrests. Leading off the lounge is the downstairs bathroom with shower and a bedroom with twin beds,which could be particularly beneficial if you find stairs difficult. The bedroom has a large wardrobe.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything required for home cooking if desired. Morning breakfasts can be spent outside on the large patio area to the front of the property and evening meals ‘al fresco’.

Continuing from the kitchen is an outside yard with sink, washing machine, clothes line, tumble dryer and two bikes. A back gate leads out to the large swimming pool with a segregated shallow area for small children.

The second floor consists of the main bedroom with double bed, large built-in wardrobe, portable TV, & sliding balcony doors leading onto a terrace where you can have your early morning breakfast. Leading off from the landing there is a well equipped family bathroom/shower room and at the other end of the landing the second twin bedded bedroom with fitted wardrobes. Another terrace leads off from the landing were you can sit and relax in private. Lovely for the evening sun!

Stairs from the landing take you up to the sun terrace, which stretches the full length of the house. The views are quite splendid, with mountains, the Mar Menor and the roof tops of the town of El Algar. It is equipped with a barbeque, and seating for 6, plus 2 full length loungers. What better way to relax and enjoy a barbecue and evening drink.

Local Area

Just a five minute walk there are bars offering a good selection of home cooked meals. There are many local shops and a market held each Friday selling local fruit and veg and most importantly the bodega the local wine cellar.

The local beach on the shores of the Mar Menor is a 5 minute drive away. La Manga golf and leisure resort is also an 10 minute drive offering 3 championship courses and a number of sporting activities together with its bars, shops and restaurants. In fact it offers almost everything!

Calblanque is a national park 10 minutes drive away, with its unspoilt secluded beachs and coastal walks. The beaches are absolutely superb.

Cabo de Palos is 10 minutes drive, a sleepy fishing village by day and one of Europe’s best known diving areas then as the evening falls becomes a mecca for the young with its bustling bars, clubs, and fish restaurants. Recommended for eating lunch or evening meals overlooking the harbour.

15/20 minutes drive Los Alcazaras , San Javier, Santiago de la Ribera all have very attractive beach fronts with their promenades, offering shops, and many restaurants. Further along the coast is Lo Pagan with its therapeutic mud baths said to help relieve all kinds of skin and joint ailments due to the salt and mineral content of the Mar Menor.

15 minutes drive is La Manga strip. Its a narrow strip of land separating the Mediterranean sea from the quiet waters of the Mar menor providing all the water sports you can imagine. Shops, restaurants and bars line the strip which comes alive in the early hours of the night offering an incredible selection of food and drink.

10 minutes to Cartegena, a bustling city with its attractive sea front, roman ruins, and museums. Its a great day out, especially when you start to explore the narrow ancient walkways.

Murcia is a little further away approximately 45 minutes, with its attractive centre. Well worth a visit.

If you wish to travel by local transport a bus stop 2 minutes away offers short rides to La Manga strip, Cartagena, and along the coast of the Mar Menor to Alicante. From Cartagena there are speedy train trips to a number of well known cities.

REVIEW
Excellently equipped with everything you could ever need and more. Superb pool/garden area at the rear of the property which is extremely safe for children. The location offers a "taste of Spain" as you mingle with the locals in the supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and bars. The owners are extremely helpful providing details of the local area and places of interest. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us!!!" Maxine.

"My family enjoyed a 2 week relaxing holiday in July at the town house. The house was superb with everything you could possibly need and more. The kids loved the pool which kept them amused for hours. The location was excellent, handy for the local beaches and the beaches at the strip.( kids loved the big waves). Lots of nice restaurants in los belones and los alcazares 5-15 minutes away. Lots of information in the house regarding things to do and places to see. Neighbours were also very frendly and helpful. Would definetly return. Thank you kim and steve for a lovely holiday." Andrew Aug 07.

"Very comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The pool area was the icing on the cake especially for the children, and the roof terrace was a lovely retreat. Lots of beaches and good eating places within a few minutes drive. Would definitely return" Margaret from Rugby, UK.
