Overview

Our elegantly-designed front-line townhouse at La Torre has stunning views overlooking the 15th hole of the golf course. It is located in a quieter part of the resort, ideal for golfers or young families, only 100 metres to two of the many children’s play areas and just six minutes walk from the nearest of the Resort’s twenty-two swimming pools. Another nine minutes and you’re in the resort centre, where you can wine and dine in a selection of bars and restaurants. (Total distance from the house to the resort centre is 1.2km.)

The fully air-conditioned property has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two bedrooms means the townhouse will accommodate four people comfortably. (Others advertise similar properties for 6 or 7 people but any more than four and its a squeeze, which is why I put a limit on the number. Do you really want to sleep on an uncomfortable sofa bed for a full week or would you prefer an extremely comfortable super-kingsize bed?). Each bedroom has a super-kingsize bed; however, these can be separated into singles, if you prefer.

There is central heating throughout for those refreshingly cooler winter nights.

There's free wireless broadband available throughout the house and a telephone for free calls to other properties on the Resort. And of course if you have a Skype account, youll get free Skype to Skype calls, should you wish to phone home. We also have a Skype cordless phone at the house.

There's a library of over 300 films (action, comedies and cartoons), books and games to keep all the family entertained, plus beach balls, tennis racquets and a couple of portable sun loungers for use around the pools or at the beach.

We supply a sat nav with a number of pre-installed points of interest, such as recommended bars, restaurants, beaches, the cities of Murcia and Cartagena and even the nearest hospital.

Downstairs

One bedroom is downstairs, plus a shower room, incorporating toilet, sink & bidet. In the lounge area theres a leather corner suite, satellite TV with UK channels, a CD player, DVD/video player and a selection of over three hundred films, CDs & books to cater for all tastes.

The dining area, with oak table and chairs, has doors leading out to a patio, with its fantastic views of the golf course. You can dine alfresco or simply relax with a good book in the shade on the day-bed. The newly-installed glass curtains allow year-round enjoyment of this area.

The kitchen includes an oven, hob, extractor fan, fridge-freezer, microwave, kettle, cafetière, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

Upstairs

The master bedroom is upstairs, with patio doors leading to the upstairs terrace and its superb vistas across the golf-course, palm trees and lake. On the terrace youll find a table (with umbrella), four chairs, four sun-loungers and a barbecue. The master bathroom includes a bath (with shower), vanity basin and bidet.

There is an iPod dock/charger in the upstairs bedroom.

We include a FREE WELCOME PACK of food and drink for all bookings of seven days or more.

The property has an Energy Performance Certificate rating of E.

The Resort
La Torre Golf Resort is on the Costa Cálida in Murcia, a sun-soaked region in south-east Spain. It is only minutes from the golden beaches of the Mediterranean and the safe, warm waters of the Mar Menor (Little Sea). One of five Polaris World golf resorts in the area, it is just 20 minutes’ drive from the airport at San Javier and 70 minutes from Alicante airport, making it easily accessible from anywhere in the UK.

La Torre is an excellent location for holidays all the year round, with Murcia and the Costa Cálida enjoying 320 days of sunshine and average temperatures of 21º C. The grand entrance to the resort is lined with palm trees, water features and benches. Spread throughout the landscaped complex are fountains, lush plants and lemon, lime and palm trees that give the resort an authentic Mediterranean feel.

The centrepiece of the resort is the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course. But it is not all about golf. You can take a dip in one of the 22 luxury swimming pools on the resort, practice your serve on the tennis courts or have fun with the kids at one of the children’s playgrounds. If you want a break from the action, you can browse the shops or relax over a glass of the excellent local wine or enjoy fine dining in one of the several bars and restaurants.

Guests staying on La Torre are also able to use the facilities at the nearby El Valle & Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resorts.

The surrounding area
The Murcia region has one of the most agreeable climates in Spain, with temperatures averaging 21º C and around 320 days of sunshine every year.

Theres a free shuttle bus service to El Valle and Hacienda Riquelme Golf Resorts, but to make the most of the local area we strongly recommend you hire a car (we use www.carjet.com), as there is no other public transport at present from the Resort and using taxis everyday would work out very expensive.

The resort is a 20 minute drive from the safe, sandy beaches of the Mar Menor (Little Sea), a warm natural lagoon sheltered from the main Mediterranean Sea by a long sand bank. Along the coastline of the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean you will find miles of golden sand, shallow waters and hidden coves, enough to try a different beach for every day of your holiday.

Beaches

Los Alcázares, on the Mar Menor, has some of the finest beaches on the Costa Cálida (The Warm Coast). Several have won awards for their high standards. Along the promenade there are various bars, cafes and restaurants selling local tapas, along with play areas for children. A short walk inland is the centre of Los Alcázares town itself.

Further along the Mar Menor are the fine sandy beaches at San Pedro del Pinatar. If you’ve had enough sand, try the village’s famous therapeutic mud which are believed to prevent rheumatism and arthritis.

Or there’s Santiago de la Ribera, whose wide, newly refurbished promenade leads on to a sandy beach, with many beachfront cafés and restaurants to sit and relax. You can also take a relaxing ferry trip from here across the Mar Menor to La Manga.

For a little more seclusion, try the hidden gem of Torre de la Horadada, characterised by small private coves and warm clear waters.

Sights and Shops

For a glimpse of authentic Spanish urban life, take a short drive to Murcia, the bustling capital of the region. Murcia is full of interesting cultural and tourist places to visit. Its glorious cathedral is a powerful reminder of Spain’s rich history, while the region’s artistic and historic wealth is on display at the city’s numerous museums, such as the Archaeological Museum, the Fine Arts Museum or the Salzillo Museum.

For less lofty desires, Murcia’s wide sunny avenues are lined with a great selection of both Spanish shops and familiar European high street names. Alternatively, around the backstreets towards the cathedral is a network of winding lanes brimming with exclusive little shops and charming boutiques.

Also well worth a visit is the historic port of Cartagena. Originally an important Roman port, it is now a busy cosmopolitan town. You can take a boat tour to see the ancient maritime sights, historic fort and hilltop castles, amble around the town taking in its numerous cultural and historic landmarks – or just head to the shops: Cartagena offers a selection of typical Spanish shops and high street brands.

Family Fun

The long tradition of tourism in this part of Spain means that visitors are well catered for. There are numerous theme parks, natural attractions and tourist centres suiting all tastes and all budgets. They include:

Lorca Castle, where you can travel back in time and encounter the roman world. It is a Roman-themed day out for the family that both kids and adults will enjoy. Educational as well as entertaining, there are many things to discover, learn and interact with.

Sierra Espuña, south west of Murcia city, is one of Spains renowned natural parks. It is a wilderness of dramatic peaks and pine forests, offering scenic drives, serious climbing and superb walking.

For a classic theme park experience, visit Terra Mitica. It is full of rides, stalls, shows and other entertainment for all the family – but be prepared to get wet!

The action at Terra Natura is split in to four different areas, America, Asia, Europe and Pangea. You can see how animals live in there natural habitat and discover the people and places of each region. There are also various shows and entertainers and an aqua park that is open in the summer.

Aqualandia, as the name suggests, is a water park, with rides for all ages. There is a childrens water Adventureland that has numerous slides and activities. For the adults, theres a selection of more daring rides.

Stayed Sunday 25 May 2014 with Family
The house had everything we needed, was very clean and well maintained. Our teenage daughters appreciated the selec tion of dvds and internet, and having a choice of excellent pools to visit on the resort to swim in. Although the pools were a short walk from the property we were fine with this. The supermarket on site was quite good and prices were about the same as in England. The resort is a bit out of the way, however, road links are excellent for day trips out to the Coast and we enjoyed a day out to Cartegna. Mike the owner was very helpful and information about the property and area provided before our visit was excellent. Bertie who met us on arrival was also very helpful. A very good relaxing holiday.

Stayed Friday 24 October 2008
What a great place a true home from home. Very comfortable, clean property. Not many people about in late October so very quiet too. My wife said she hadnt slept so well in months. The complimentary welcome pack was much appreciated, particularly following our late arrival due to an outward 2hr flight delay. We spent most mornings on the upper terrace watching the golfers play and just chilling out. The supermarket on site near the entrance to the resort is well stocked with reasonable prices. A car is recommended for exploring the surrounding areas and beaches. Mike, the owner, provided plenty of information beforehand which helped us understand what was available in and around the area to make our stay more enjoyable. We had a great week in late October and would recommend this property to others.

The property was very well equiped and we had everything we needed. The caretaker of the property was very friendly and helpful. We are not golfers but enjoyed some trips out and some relaxing days watching others play.

Very nice town house. Further away from club house and bars than we had hoped, but overall nice location.

Went Friday to Monday with a friend for a golfing weekend. The property was very good, Everything we required for the weekend. Was a bit of a walk to the resort centre, especially the walk back after a few glasses of wine. The resort was quiet, but we had a couple of great nights at the Clover bar. The Italian on site was very good too and reasonable price wise. We did think the 70 euros cleaning fee was a bit excessive. We palyed golf at Hacienda Requelme & La Torre, the La Torre course we enjoyed more, although the bunkers we awful, most of them rock hard and almost impossible to play out of. I think overall it was good value for money and we would probably return.

Great value for money, clean, well equipped property, wonderful views over golf course!!! Would definitely recommend a car though!!!!!

'Just a quick mail to say thank you for a lovely time in your house. Everything about the house was perfect, we had a wonderful time, everything we wanted was there. Carole and Bernie were brilliant, always available, helpful but never intrusive. We will definitely consider your house again in the future.'Stuart, Cheshire.
What a lovely townhouse you have and how much we enjoyed the rest and relaxation it gave us with everything we could possibly need!!So once again thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful townhouse. I hope that we will be able to return in the not too distant future and will certainly recommend it to both family and friends.
We had a fantastic holiday, thanks. The house was perfect for us and everything we could possibly need was there, the resort itself was lovely and very well kept and maintained. The swimming pool which was only about 5 min away was perfect and that's where we spent a lot of time. A car is definitely a must because the resort is quite isolated in that sense but at the same time we travelled to Murcia, Cartegena and of course the beach which are not too far in the car. So we got to see quite a bit of the surrounding area and still have the relaxed atmosphere of the resort. So all in all we had a great holiday and would have no problem recommending the resort to others.
Your house was wonderful, even better than the website photos suggested. You seem to have thought of everything. It was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The weather was also superb - sunshine and mid 30's everyday. Great to have British telly just to keep in touch with news etc. Many thanks for your prompt and professional service throughout - not always our experience with other lettings in the past!
"Your property was perfect in every way, it had everything we needed and more. The layout of the house is great for families as it is so spacious having the two terraces.We loved the vast variety of music & films and even managed to have a daily game of scrabble, a game we haven't played for years - that's how chilled out we all were. The whole complex is so well maintained - it really is first class. I would have no hesitation in recommending it to my family & friends and in-fact have done so already!""Once again Mike thank you for making our holiday such an enjoyable one and for being so professional & informative throughout - booking the holiday was such a slick process and the house is exactly as described on the website!" Mary, Solihull.
'The house is lovely, had everything we could possibly need - couldn't fault it, thank you!' Diane, Anglesey.
