Why Mary Wilson chose Lorca

The fact that it's only a minute to the nearest shop and 4 minutes to the village with banks, supermarket, Chemist, Doctors surgery, hairdressers, bars, weekly market and 10 minutes to a large shopping centre with a huge supermarket, a variety of clothes and shoe shops, cafés, restaurants, bowling alley and a 6 screen cinema? A few minutes further takes you to the large medieval, historic town of Lorca with its fantastic architecture, cathedral, old churches, squares, ancient fort and it's quaint little streets with shops, boutiques, bars cafés and restaurant. It's a real bonus having fantastic road links so close by to many sandy beaches and coves and lots of other major cities, towns and lots of other interesting places. We love being snuggled at the foot of the mountains amongst lots of typical Spanish families. Driving is a pleasure as traffic is very light. The journey to and from Murcia Airport is very scenic and almost traffic-free. Most of all we love the peace and tranquility of the area which is secluded but not remote. Relaxing in the garden or by the pool with nothing but the sound of birds to disturb the peace is divine. We enjoyed designing the apartment & pool area to provide plenty of room to spread out and relax, but also to provide enough space for 'me' time.

What makes this apartment unique

The benefits are vast here in this area, whether you simply want to relax and the soak up the sun, cool off or play around in the lovely warm pool which can be lit up at night, curl up in the swing with your favourite book, soak in the beautiful surroundings with exotic palms and colourful shrubs or just pick a fresh orange from one of the trees and watch the pastor take his goat herd out to graze, enjoy a BBQ as the sun goes down, enjoy a scenic 20 minute drive to a sandy beach or one of the many coves, visit one of the beautiful squares for coffee, explore Lorca Town and visit some of its many tapas bars, ice cream parlours, cafés or simply shop till you drop at one of the weekly markets, visit the local golf club for a round of golf or just take a coffee and enjoy it's magnificent panoramic views. A visit to the lovely old un spoiled fishing town of Aguilas is a must with it's magnificent square surrounded by cafés and bars or stroll around it's marinas or long promenades with seafront restaurants, watch the fisher men come home with their catch, take a boat ride around the coves, enjoy a relaxing drive through the Spanish countryside or visit one of the many interesting towns or places of interest whilst driving on uncrowned roads. If you are a walker, cyclist, bird watcher or explorer of towns or a lover of architecture this lovely unspoiled area will not disappointed you.

What a lovely place to stay. So large and comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen and dining area. We chose to chill out, reading and watching dvds, but also had a few trips out to the nearby town of Lorca, and also down to the coast. It was very relaxing, with an extremely comfortable bed and was spotlessly clean throughout. We felt very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Perfect for relaxation

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit to Casa Abril & we are returning this year. We find ourselves totally relaxed within a day or two of arriving. The accommodation is spacious & to a very high standard and we feel like it is our home from home with all the little creature comforts you would expect. It is great to have our meals in the conservatory area, feeling that we are outside without the bother of any insects, and to enjoy drinks there in the evening looking over the twinkling lights of Lorca Castle. The surrounding area is very rural & peaceful (we sleep so well here as it is so quiet!), but within 20 minutes you are at the beautiful sandy beaches of Aguilas or the interesting city of Lorca. There is also an international golf course a few minutes away which my husband enjoys! We have been both with & without our children here, and always find it welcoming & homely, making it an easy choice to return to each year. We look forward to seeing Mary & Derek again soon.

A Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 out of 5
What an amazing find! We spent two weeks in this luxury villa and had one of the best family holidays ever. The property has everything you would expect and is maintained to such a high standard. Mary and Derek are a delight and nothing was too much trouble. This is a part of Spain we had never been too before and the rural setting made it even more special as we had the best of both worlds as within a 20 minute drive was the beach with all the holiday excitment that that brings. The aspect is perfect and from around midday to 10.00pm at night the pool and sunbathing area of the garden is in full sun. We were also pleased to know there were no midges at all. I would recommend this villa to a family who want to spend some qulity time together. There are plenty of games supplied and I found myself playing chess with our middle son in the 35 degree heat in between cooling time in the pool! The DVD player plays UK DVDs and we brought a few over for our youngest son. I cannot find fault with this property and have rented a few with homeaway for 5 years in various countries. We will definately consider returning! Thank you Mary and Derek for making us so welcome!

Superb Accomodation

  • 5 out of 5
Mary kindly met us at the local village and led us to her luxurious holiday villa.
We were absolutely delighted at the spacious accomodation and the quality of everything in the villa.The location is stunning although a little remote but this is no hassle with a hirecar.We loved the privacy and quietness and spent most evenings
bbqing and watching the sun go down over the beautiful countryside.Mary and Derek are great hosts.Unobtrusive yet most helpful with info about sightseeing and
local eateries,cafes and places of interest.Before we left we made arrangements to return and are going back in Sept 13.A superb villa in wonderful surroundings
with great hosts.what more could you want for in a holiday.We could not recommend this villa highly enough.Mary and Derek are friends and we look forward to meeting up with them again this Sept.Denis,Linda,Brian and Pamela

What a Fantastic Experience

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second stay at the beautiful Casa Abril and we are already booked in for our third stay in May/June of this year. In fact we consider the owners Mary and Derek as friends now, rather than just the owners of the property.
They manage to strike the perfect balance between being attentive hosts whilst still affording us privacy for our holidays. Nothing seems too much trouble for them; from providing us with the very useful loan of beach equipment, to Derek lending me his acoustic guitar for our time there. (Its a boys' toys thing!)
beautifully-kept property, with lots of space and containing those little detailed extras, such as a well stocked library to suit all tastes. No need to bring books with you - just browse the titles on offer.
The spacious casa is set in an idyllic setting with almond groves, well cared-for gardens, and all set against a stunning background of the nearby mountains.
It is a truly magnificent place to come and relax, taking time to cool down every so often with a welcome dip in the pool.
Despite the rural setting, there are good road links locally, which opens up some great places to visit within easy reach for a day-trip. We really enjoyed are visits to Cartegena to marvel at the Roman coliseum; the deserted beaches around the small village of Calnegra, and our personal favourite; the small seaside fishing town of Águilas. Mary and Derek are a great source of information if you are unsure of what trips to try; including where to eat and any particular points of interest to see.
We never ate at the same restaurants twice, there are just too many to try. There are is varied choice of Spanish, Murcian and international dishes available. The local seafood dishes are fantastic (or muy rica as the locals say).
We would have no hesitation in recommending this casa to friends and family.
To sum the experience up - after each visit, I feel homesick for the place for at least a month after we leave.
