About the Region ......
When you arrive in the region of Murcia, you will discover one of south-east Spain's best kept secrets... blessed by areas of outstanding natural beauty, more than 3000 hours of sunshine and pleasant temperatures all year round. Use Roldan as your base as you discover its culture, its landscape and its heritage.

3000 Years of History ....
With a rich history, of different cultures and its strategic location at the crossroads between the south and the Mediterranean make the region of Murcia is a fascinating place to visit. You can discover its extensive historical, artistic, architectural and cultural wealth both 'in situ' at the sites themselves or through the region's comprehensive network of museums.

Two Seas ......
Bordered by the blue Mediterranean, the coast of the region of Murcia boasts endless sandy beaches and spectacular scenery. Additionally there is the Mar Menor, Europe's largest saltwater lagoon, a delight for water sports enthusiasts and an ideal safe area for children to swim.

Murcia .......
The regional capital, Murcia, is a 30-minute drive from Roldan. Founded in 831 AD, it has inherited over the years a rich fusion of Moorish, medieval Christian and baroque influences that can still be felt by today's visitor. Murcia is a welcoming and friendly city, pleasantly modern whilst maintaining its traditions. Its most important monument is the cathedral, which is characterised by the variety of architectural styles that overlapped during its construction (1394-1462). The Bishop's Palace, the Casino and several churches are also well worth a visit, as are its museums and art galleries. In the town centre, you can stroll down Trapería and Platería streets, named after the cloth merchants or silversmiths who plied their trades in each. Don't miss the Romea theatre and City Hall, built in the 19th century, with pastel-coloured façades and unusual decorative features. The Holy Week processions in Murcia are an expression of 'fiesta' and deep religious spirit. The life-sized woodcarvings of the Passion by Murcian sculptor Francisco Salzillo date from the 18th century and are carried through the streets on the shoulders of the faithful. A week later, the Spring Festival is a joyful celebration of the Murcian people's origins. On 'Bando de la Huerta' day, the locals put on splendid traditional costumes and spend the whole day in the streets eating and drinking. Browsing around the city's streets, you will also find good shopping in nice boutiques, as well as pleasant squares in which to relax and enjoy a drink or typical tapas at one of the many cafés, while you experience the special atmosphere of this authentically Spanish city.

Cartagena .....
A 'must' for those visiting Roldan, Cartagena is, by no means, 'just another city'. It dates back to the times of conflict between the Carthaginians and Romans and is an ancient city with a great deal of historical and, as you might expect, archaeological interest. Located around 20 kilometres from Roldan, the ancient city of Cartagena revolves around its port, which is one of the most important in Spain. At every turn, you will find evidence of its 2200 years of history, marked by the imprint of different civilisations, battles, ruins, ancient walls, castles and churches. You could visit its numerous Roman and Byzantine ruins and its Roman theatre, its archaeological museums, or simply stroll through the city centre and marvel at its modernist architecture. Shopping in the busy streets of its centre and its recently opened El Corte Inglés department store are a great way to complete your visit.

The Mar Menor .....
The Great Pool, the Little Sea... the so-called Mar Menor (Minor Sea) has been known by different names during the course of its history, all of which have described this singular natural phenomenon: a great coastal lagoon (originally an open bay), 170 square kilometres of warm salt water, the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe.
This setting has everything you need for water sports: great weather, a constant breeze, calm and shallow waters (less than seven metres at the deepest point)... there is no wonder it is considered one of Europe's best sailing destinations. Water sports enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice with sailing, canoeing, swimming, waterskiing, jet-skiing, fly-surfing, windsurfing and every other type of nautical activity you can imagine. The stretch of land that separates the Mar Menor from the Mediterranean, called La Manga ('the sleeve'), is 24 kilometres long and between 200 metres to 1.5 kilometres in width. La Manga del Mar Menor is located between two seas and as such boasts infinite beaches, sandy seabeds and crystalline waters. The Mar Menor beaches are particularly popular with families with young children, because the warm, shallow water offers bathing fun for all ages. All around the Mar Menor, picturesque villages such as Los Alcázares and Santiago de la Ribera, with seafront promenades bordered by majestic palm trees, are great for a day trip. Each day of the week, a local street market is hosted in a different town

San Pedro del Pinatar Salt Flats and Natural Park .....
The salt flats at San Pedro del Pinatar are the region's most important wetland area, home to large concentrations of aquatic nesting birds and where thousands of migratory birds rest during their journey between Europe and Africa. This regional park of rich environmental diversity and unspoilt beaches can easily be visited following well-marked pathways.


The Golf ......
This area has obtained the reputation as being the 'Costa del Golf'. There are in excess of 20 golf course either operational or in the process of being constructed. The villa is located on the edge of 'La Torre' which is one of the flagships for the area. Wherever you go in the area the golf is always close by,

Great little villa with all the anemities. Great central location if you're into visiting neighbouring towns and still close to the beach as well. Friendly neighbours and quiet at night. Loved the solarium on the roof! Price was very reasonable.

We had a late Airport arrival and due in Roldan between 10.00/11.00pm. It is an excellent service to have a Keyholder waiting there for your arrival at that time of night and not have to collect key from another location in an area which you may not be familiar with. The property is conveniently located and is less than 20 miles from Murcia City and also Cartagena. It is about a 15/20 min. drive from San Havier Airport. These cities are easily accessible by train if one does not have access to a car. The property itself is about 2 years old and in excellent decorative order and is adequately furnished. T.V. is provided with a good selection of satelite channels. Kitchen is well equiped and it was good to receive a "welcome pack" of food basics. The complimentary bottle of wine was also appreciated. Would be very happy to stay here again.
