Apartment overview

If you like peace and tranquility, magnificant sea and mountain views, you will fall in love with La Azohia. Appropriately, the name La Azohia itself means escape.

We hope to provide you an escape at our two bedroom apartment on the top floor of the El Pinar De San Gines Complex.

Turn left and walk along the promenade passing palm trees, bougainvillea, sandy stretches and rocky coves until From this very tasteful development, built in the traditional Andalucian pueblo style, it is five minutes walk to the sea along a road lined with deliciously scented pines, and glimpses of well-established villas or a shorter route to the left of the apartment.
15/20 From this very tasteful development, built in the traditional Andalucian pueblo style, it is five minutes walk to the sea along a road lined with deliciously scented pines, and glimpses of well-established villas or a shorter route to the left of the apartment.
minutes later you will find yourself in the little fishing village of LAzohia. Here life carries on as it always has and you can watch the fishermen bring in their daily catches of tuna. On the headland beyond is the old 16th century pirate look-out tower to add to the charm and is flood-lit at night.

However, a 15 minute walk is likely to become a longer stroll as you will be temped to sit and take in the views, or stop at one of the local tapas bars or check out the possibilities at one of the diving schools, which Azohia has become famous for. The pristine waters are a playground for fishermen and divers. Swimming and snorkelling are very popular here, especially as Azohia boasts an average of 300 sunny days a year. Even in the height of summer here the beaches are never crowded and in the middle of winter you can enjoy clear, sunny days and delightful temperatures. The area is also ideal for sailing, windsurfing, cycling, golf and hiking. A lot of the activies do not run during the winter months but I have enjoyed cycling and many interesting walks during this time.

For those who like hiking, the mountains which parallel the coast give an endless variety of vistas - in fact you can walk up the mountain directly behing El Pinar. In the valley behind, a road snakes up to Cabo Tinoso. Here is the biggest cannon you are ever likely to see with an amazing range of 35 km! These gun batteries were built in the early 1930s for the defence of Cartagena, the headquarers of the Spanish Mediterranean fleet. Quite apart from the historic interest, the views fom this height towards Cartagena and acrosss the Bay of Mazarron are stunning.

Still on the subject of hiking and mountains, about an hours drive away, is the fantastic mountain park of Sierra Espuna, south west of Murcia, with its deep valleys and high peaks. You can sometimes even enjoy snow in the higher elevations in the winter months. It is home to pine and oak forests and a wide range of animals and huge birds of prey, circling overhead in the thermals. There are also hundreds of kilometers of mountain biking trails in the Sierra Espuna.

If you do not want to leave El Pinar itself, there is no need because there are swimming pools on the complex and ample opportunity to sunbathe and relax on the large solarium, taking in the views - and in the evening enjoy a drink and BBQ as you watch the Mediterranean turn red with the rays of the setting sun. I have seen some of the best sun sets from this solarium. There are some lovely restaurants in the area as well as local traditional Spanish tapas bars. Please note that these bars are closed during the winter months, but you will find late night dining in Isla Plan (5 mins drive) or Mazarron (10 minutes drive). I do recommend a car for those who want to explore the surrounding area.

The large port of Mazarron has all the attractions, amenities and activities of a big town as well as the Sunday market..and 20 minutes drive over the mountains to Cartagena you not only have a large city with its fantastic shopping (including Carrefour and El Corte Ingles), bars and restaurants along the seafront and in the narrow medieval streets, but it is also a city very much steeped in history, dating back to pre-Roman times. Hannibal landed his elephants here!

A car is not essential, but if you would like to see the surrounding countryside, yes it is advisable to hire. There is a local carhire 5 minutes from the apartment if you wish to book for a few days during your stay. I usually book from the airport and do your research as they vary in price.

Please get in touch with any questions you may have and I will get back to you as soon as possible...

The apartment has a smart 42” TV; WiFi; Air conditioning; all kitchen essentials including Nespresso coffee machine. Please bring your favourite coffee pods.

Thank you, Karen.

It's a lovely apartment very clean and tidy. The kitchen is good with everything you would want. The location is good but the walk to and from the beach is hilly so if someone had a problem walking it would not suit them. The beach is amazing.

Hi Kate, sorry you found it hard to and from the beach. There are two ways to get to the beach and one is just a slight slope, so perhaps you took the other. Thank you for your stay.
