Stunning 3 bed detached villa on quiet private corner plot in Polaris World's premier golf resort, with full AC, c.h. and private pool and terraces. Elegantly furnished.
This bright and airy villa occupies a convenient corner plot and therefore has extra degree of privacy. It has been built to the highest specifications with marble floors throughout and every mod-con. As it is intended to be our home, we have personally furnished it to a high standard with attention to detail.
There is central AC as well as central heating. The kitchen is fully fitted including an American style fridge freezer dispensing ice and filtered water (so no more heavy bottles to carry).
The living room with its cathedral-like high ceilings has salubrious soft leather sofas seating 5-6 and an antique oak coffee table. This matches the dining table with its 6 leather upholstered chairs and the beautiful sideboard. Wall hangings, chandeliers and standing lamps combine to create a luxurious ambiance. Several French doors and windows with pretty wooden shutters provide a delightful outlook onto the terraces at the back and sides- and directly onto the swimming pool.
There is a 32” Grundig LCD television with satellite to receive several English channels and DVD player (with some assorted music and a few films).
There are 3 bedrooms. The master has a double bed and an en-suite bathroom which includes a jacuzzi bath and shower and double sink and looks out through French doors onto the pool area. The other two have twin beds and are served by a second bathroom. All have large fitted wardrobes.
Outside, there is a private swimming pool and shower. A terraced pergola provides a pleasant seating area with a low table and chairs for drinks. On the side of the villa, accessed from the pool area as well as the kitchen, is a bbq terrace with table and 6 chairs to provide that ‘al fresco’ dining experience. During the balmy summer months this part receives a refreshingly cooling breeze. By the pool there are also 2 sun loungers. This area receives sun almost all day as it faces east.
In the front there is a private car port and plenty of off street car parking as well.

Things to do in the vicinity
The Costa Calida has a magnificent climate with all year sunshine and even winter temperatures averaging 18°C - ideal for all kinds of outdoor sports and recreation.
The region of Murcia is relatively new to foreign tourism. Compared to more populated areas farther north up towards the Costa blanca, this area – even the beaches- is surprisingly un-crowded and retains its Spanish atmosphere.
It is a place which has something to offer all who appreciate luxury at an affordable price- at least for now.
* Inland offers unspoiled conservation areas with a wide range of bird life, the opportunity to go horse riding, cycling, walking, climbing, trekking and para-gliding. At the same time the chance to savour the peaceful rural sights. This area is an historical adventure with cave dwellings and paintings, incredible architecture and museums.
* For golf lovers there is a wealth of courses to suit all levels in El Valle, La Torre, Mar Menor, La Manga and other resorts throughout this region.
* The gorgeous beaches of the Costa Calida are marvelous for swimming, snorkeling and scuba-diving. The shallow waters of the Mar Menor lagoon reach temperatures akin to a warm bath during summer months and are perfect for learning to sail or windsurf at the sailing schools under the watchful eye of full RYA instructors. Water-skiing is widely available throughout the summer months and often during winter too.
* A perfect place for both an energetic or relaxing holiday!
* The nearby town of Torre Pacheco is typically Spanish with quaint squares and a wealth of restaurants and bars to try.
* The coastal town of Los Alcazares is 10-15 min away with everything a seaside holiday town has to offer. There are numerous beach bars and restaurants where you can enjoy music, tapas or excellent meals.
The town still has thermal baths, which have been there from Roman times! You can walk along the beautiful promenade with views over the Mar Menor to La Manga on the other side. Fishing boats and miles of sandy beaches complete a pretty picture.
Los Alcazares holds two weekly street markets, selling various products such as clothing and fresh food. Throughout the last two weeks in August, groups representing market garden areas throughout Spain and other European countries gather to display their folklore, handicrafts and prepare gastronomic feasts from their local produce.
Monday - San Pedro del Pinatar
Tuesday - La unio n, Los Belones, Los Alcazares
Wednesday - Santiago de la Ribera, Cartagena, El Mirador
Thursday - San Javier, Los Urrutias
Friday - El Algar, Torrevieja
Saturday - Los Narejos, Torre Pacheco
Sunday - Cabo de Palos, Los Nieto
* Murcia city (15 min) and Cartagena (30 min) are both well worth a visit each with their own charm, uniquely Spanish. Murcia with its grand cathedral, pretty squares with pavement cafes and a maze of small side streets with little shops, Cartegna with its historic port area.
* For the shopoholics, Murcia city is probably the best bet. In addition to the numerous city centre shops that include El Cortes Ingles, there is Nueva Condomina, a sprawling new complex that includes Ikea, located just to the north of the city (25 min from El Valle straight down the motorway)
Cartegena also has some shops in the centre as well as in the large ‘out of town’ complex that has Carrefour, Media Mart, Leroy Merlin, Toys r Us, a garden centre, Casa and others, plus a huge mall with various shops on 2 levels.
Dos Mares is a large Mall that has a selection of small shops, bars and restaurants, cinema, bowling and also an Eroski supermarket.
Our favourite for food and essentials shopping is Carrefour in Murcia city – about 15-20 min from El Valle. In the same mall there are also restaurants and clothes shops and mobile phone outlets. On the way to Carrefour there is also an Eroski hypermarket and a Media Markt.
If you just want something without the excursion - there are shops nearer in Mosa Trajectum next door or at La Torre.
We stayed in this beautiful property for 10 days in August 2012 and we had a great time. The area is really nice. The house is beautiful and clean. So is the pool. Some big flowers by the fence in the back yard by the pool would have been nice to look at. It`s a secure area and the fence is quite big and not so nice to look at. Otherwise perfect for a nice quite holiday in a safe golf resort. There is also a little supermarket in the area. Murcia is only 15 minutes away by car. Lots of shops and things to see. The local beach is not far away by car. We liked the beach at La Manga best and it took us almost 1 hour by car to get there. It`s worth the trip though because the beach at La Manga is absolutely perfect. We will absolutely recommend this property to others and to our best friends. Many thanks to the manager Pat who helped us find a doctor when our daughter had tonsillitis during our stay.
The property was wonderfully secluded within a quiet location. El Valle was superbly maintained and the house was immaculatley clean and tastefully furnished. A great place to recharge our batteries and get away from the normal everyday chaos we usually have to contend with. Certainly worth another visit.
Owen from Cardiff
The villa is nicely furnished with everything you need for a comfortable holiday. The surroundings are peaceful and quiet. The golf complex has a nice supermarket and a good restaurant. Car is an absolute must. We had a great time here and would recommend it.
Steve from Aylesbury
The property was excellent in terms of its location and decor. It was extremely well presented and in very good order throughout. As it is on one level it is great for small children and the less able. The facilities on the resort are quite limited however there is a nearby golf resort that has everything you need including an excellent 5 star hotel where one can use the spa and gym facilities.
A car is absolutely essential as although there is a lot to do in terms of sightseeing, beaches etc, you will need to travel at least 20 - 30 minutes. That said, Murcia, which is worth a visit as it is a major city, is only 30 minutes drive.
We had occasion to speak to the neighbour who was very friendly and helpful.
Overall highly recommended.
Linda from Newport
This is a pristine villa set within El Valle golf resort. The property has everything you may need, is spacious and fully air-conditioned. The swimming pool and terraces receive sunshine until very late in the afternoon but there are also some shady spots to be had by those crying out that it is "too hot" (no pleasing some people!).
The owner is organised and thorough in all aspects of the booking.
There is only limited space around the villa (all the villas are completely bounded on each side) for kids to play and we found the main Clubhouse to have very slow service for food & drink even when not at all busy.
jennifer from Edinburgh
The property was lovely, very high standard. had everything you could want. I would highly recommend to friends.

The corner location of the Villa at El Valle instills a blend of flexibility and tranquility. On arrival at the Villa and opening the door we were engrossed with the 'wow' factor as the Villa was imacculately presented. Overall the villa was wonderful, furnishedbeautifully, in a wonderful position and spotlessly clean. Thank you for the use of the villa, we had a wonderfully relaxing time and enjoyed every minute of our time there.
The orientation of the villa is such that it receives sun all day long in the pool area.
The villa overlooks the mountain backdrop of the valley
Golf club, restaurants and supermarket are all available on the Resort
