El Pinar de San Gines is nestled into the hillside, less than 500 metres from the unspoilt beach at La Azohia, with beautiful views over the bay of Mazarron. It is in the southern Costa Calida region of Spain, 10 minutes from Puerto de Mazarron and 20 from Cartagena.
La Azohia itself is situated in a beautiful bay sheltered by surrounding hills and provides great diving, snorkelling, sailing, windsurfing and fishing. The beach stretches around most of the bay and slopes gently into crystal clear waters. This is a typical tranquil fishing village with a scattering of cafes, tapas bars and restaurants and remains largely untouched by tourism.
For the more active, historical Cartagena is only 20 minutes away over the hills. In La Azohia there are at least 3 dive centres, fishing, sailing centre (summer generally), other watersports and areas for walking and cycling.
Nearby (within half an hour) there are plenty of opportunities for golf, all manner of other water sports, tennis, cycling and walking.
There are water parks within an hours drive, numerous beaches along with several National Parks. At Cartagena there is the harbour , many restaurants, the Maritime museum, shopping andn open top bus rides and boat trips. Murcia City is around 1 hour away (very hot in summer).
The apartment at El Pinar has been thoughtfully furnished and is ideal for a relaxing break by the pool, or the nearby beach where we have found the water very pleasant from May to October.
Situated on the first floor, it has a fabulous private roof terrace, which covers the entire apartment below, and is furnished with sunbeds, table, chairs and barbecue, accessed from the living area balcony.
The kitchen is bright and well equipped and the dining table can seat 6 comfortably. There are 2 bedrooms, one double and one twin with a pull out bed for a third person.
There is a well-presented bathroom with bath/shower and bidet.
The apartment benefits from hot and cold air conditioning and entertainment is provided by the television and sound system, DVDs, cds, books and games are on hand for your enjoyment. Children are always welcome and a cot and highchair are provided.
The area is very peaceful.
If you have a larger party or 2 families, our other property on phase 1 ref 11991 is on the same complex.
To summarise, the apartment is ideal for families or a couple or 2, active or otherwise. If you are a party animal this is not for you!
We strongly recommend hiring a car, although collection from the airports can be arranged. If required, we can suggest car hire and airline websites.
