THE REGION:

Murcia and its coast are known as the "Warm Coast". It has approximately 320 days of sunshine per year with an average temperature of 25 degrees C. with 250km of shoreline and sandy beaches along 2 seas - the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean which is reputed to have one of the most pleasant climates in the world.

The Mar Menor (The Little Sea) is just 40 minutes drive from from the Finca Miraflores and the Mediterranean sea is just 30 minutes drive. The Mar Menor is a 130 square km natural salt water lagoon. Its warm shallow water and soft sandy beaches with numerous cafes, bars and children's play areas make it an ideal place for all the family.

Murcia city is only a 15 minute drive from the finca, with its historic cathedral is the perfect destination for browsing the many individual shops or just enjoying a drink & sampling typical Spanish tapas at one of the many bars and restaurants to be found in the quaint and interesting plazas. For the more ardent shopper there are two large shopping malls. Thader, on one hand, and Nueva Condomina on the other, offer countless shops, variety of restaurants catering for all tastes, bowling alley and 6 screen cinema. For the football enthusiast the new stadium of Real Murcia is next to the shopping Mall and tickets can be purchased on-line. For the children there is a new Terra Natura Animal Park and Aqua Park both situated approx. 15 minutes drive from the finca.

Fortuna and its stunning thermal baths are just 15 minutes drive away. Fortuna is a typical Spanish town, with peaceful streets and a white church with a curious tower. The Moors invaded the area and where in Fortuna for 700 years. They built the Castillico do los Moros. From another era is the Baroque styled church of La Purisima which has an unusual tower, the architecture is completed by modern styled convent and town hall. Los Banos (the thermal baths) is about 3km outside the town of Fortuna. Here you will find the natural hot water springs, the water is used to treat respiratory disorders and rheumatism but is is also said to help ease stress and various other ailments. There are two opportunities to experience the hot springs. One in the grounds of the hotel, the other in grounds of the campsite - Camping Fuente where a very pleasant day can be spent with pool with jacuzzis and water temperature of 36 degrees centigrade.

There is an area to the south of Fortuna that is a nature preservation area call The Embalse of Santomera. The area has woods that surround the lake and provides an ideal environment for walking and fishing.

Archena Health Spa is 25 min drive away. Located in the stunning Valle de Ricote, on the shores of the Segurariver, amidst orange and lemontrees and other lush tropicalplants, is the health spa of Archena, an ideal spot for a healthy and restful vacation. Specializing in respiratory,dermatological, and rheumaticailments, its thermal waters surface at a temperature of 52 °Centigrade (125 °F.) and have a high mineral content. Facilities include an outdoor thermalpool, tennis and paddle tenniscourts, bicycle excursions. It is possible to visit the Spa and use the facilities on a daily just using the thermal pools or add on enjoying lunch and a massage. The icing on the cake after a day in the spa is having dinner at Bar El Carril where Pepe, the owner, will feast your eyes and your palate with the best tapas in the region.

we had booked this villa for 9 but 3 of our party couldnt make it which was just as well the rooms are advertised as double but they are indeed not, the only double bed was the master room which was lovely but the bathroom needs a proper shower and a complete overhaul as does the rest of the villa.The owners cant expect people to pay the price they are charging for a villa that is in needs of work.
On our arrival nothing was ready for us and so much was wrong although in the end the owners put it right it should have all been done before we arrived.we had to have a new tv,cooker,they borrowed a bbq from someone across the road even though i asked before we booked if there was one,at 8pm at night someone was still putting the pool chairs together.the people did not leave the villa until 9pm which was 12 hours into our holiday.I unpacked my case and in the bottom drawer of the chest of drawers was a BB GUN i could not believe my eyes what if one of the children had found it and to make matters worse the person either put it in the utility or there was another one there as well it was not loaded but that is not the point.The swimming pool was bad it was cleaned out once in a fortnight lucky we have a pool so my husband cleaned it daily a lady came in once a day to sweep around the pool are with a broom that we think must have had a hole in it because we had to sweep up after she left.There was no utility check because the villa is full of their stuff far to much to know what was there or not,i had to clean the cutlery draws out and wash the things we were going to use as everything was old and grubby,i had to clean the fridge before we could use it as it was filthy.We have photo,s of the state of the place on our arrival and to top it all when they finally left on our first day we went to put a dvd on for the kids and there was no remote so it could not be used,we could,nt contact the estate manager as he was away and no one else spoke english.so overall we would not recommend this villa in its present state although the outside seating area is lovely.

Many thanks for your review and for staying at Villa Finca Miraflores. I appreciate some details were not completely ready when you checked in but overall I believe the property was handed to you in a very good condition. By saying that nothing was ready when you checked in I think you are misleading those who read this review. As you know, one of the three TVs and the kitchen oven were not working properly when you checked in and my reaction was immediate: I bought a new TV and an oven the very same day you checked in. My response to you was very positive I believe.

You don't seem to mention how wonderful my private plantation is and the different fruits and citrics that can be picked up straight from the organic trees. This is probably one of the major points of interest of my property and you just omitted this in your review. On this note my property offers an amazing experience in the country side where my guests can enjoy pure nature and pick up dozens and dozens of different fruits and citrics directly from my 12,000 m2 private plantation. Did you really value this? Did your family enjoy this?

You also indicate that the price does not reflect what you get. Well... I ignore what type of properties you've visited before but I believe that charging £125 per night for a 15,000 m2 property which includes a huge house in very good condition, three gardens, a private pool and a 12,000 m2 private plantation seems to me like a very good deal! :-) Clearly you think otherwise and I respect that but couldn't disagree more.

Honestly, I don't think your review is fair considering everything you got. I would have expected a bit more objectivity and gratitude. When you just pick on the negatives without balancing the positives you end up losing objectivity I think. My property is not perfect but overall it offers a great value and experience.

My family and I have spent one wonderfull week at Finca Miraflores. From day one Raimunda - the house keeper - looked after us, making sure the swimming pool was spotless every single day of our stay, cooking delicious types of paella... Me and my husband chilled out by the stunning private swimming pool surrounded by palms and pine trees while the kids had a great time hand picking fruits and vegs from the organic finca. And best of all we could have as much fruit and vegs as we wish to, it was free of charge!! The porches are immense, some of the gardens need a bit more of care but the finca is just outstanding, a great experience. Also the views from the panoramic terrace are spectacular, something to remember. The kids also loved the estates shared swimming pool as lots of children gathered there and played together while dad and mum enjoyed delicious tapas at the chiringuito!! We had the chance to spend one full at the thermal baths in Fortuna and Archena - less than 30 minutes by car!!! It felt like heaven on earth... Thanks very much Raimunda and Jose - be sure well come back very soon!!!! Karen Smith - De la Rivera
