About the location

Our home is situated in Murcia on the Costa Calida (the warm coast) and is bathed in sunshine for over 300 days of the year. The apartment is situated in a quiet, inland area of almond, olive and lemon groves and is surrounded by the Carrascoy and Sierra Espuna mountain ranges. It is paradise! All the photos are my own, just taken on the phone and still don't compare to the real thing!
The beautiful Roman city of Cartagena is 45mins away, Murcia city is 35mins and the stunning beaches of Mazzaron and Bolnuevo can be reached within 25mins. There are hundreds of other beaches to explore, including Los Alcazares and The Mar Menor (a stunning coastal saltwater lagoon) within an hours' drive. There are hundreds of stunning hiking and biking trails in the Sierra Espuna or along the coast.

The nearest airport - Murcia International is 30 mins away or the larger airport at Alicante is an easy 1hr 15mins drive along well-signposted motorways. Car swap may be available.
