This was our second visit to Villa Lorca and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we felt at home.

We arrived late at night but this wasn't a problem as the fridge was well stocked with food and drinks and everything we needed was at the villa, The whole villa looked fresh, new and well organised.

As my husband is a keen cook we visit the local market which is a two minute drive or ten minute walk from the villa and bought a load of fresh fruit and vegetables at a very reasonable price. As the villa was well stocked with store cupboard items and utensils we regularly cooked our own food.

We enjoy the drive to Aguilas (about 20 minutes) which has a beautiful beach and promenade and regularly took walks along there, stopping for a drink in one of the many bars, before visiting the supermarket to restock the fridge and cupboards.

The golf course is only five minutes drive away and is reasonably priced. It is also a lovely place to spend some extra time admiring the views and relaxing at the 19th hole.

Karen and Ian have installed a new hot tub this year which was absolute heaven. They have also built an extension towards the back of the villa which gives extended space for larger families or families with teenagers.

Karen and Ian are so helpful and give you total peace of mind as their knowledge of the area is excellent and Karen's ability to speak Spanish means that should there be a problem she would always be at hand. This is the only place I have ever returned to for a second holiday and I can't wait to return again next year.

Wonderful holiday at Villa Lorca

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back having had the most enjoyable holiday. From the minute we arrived until the minute we left, everything about it was great. After arriving late and in the dark, on wakening up the first morning and looking out to the terrace, the pool and the garden, we just knew we were going to enjoy it. The space indoors and out is perfect. The kitchen/diner/sitting area is very modern with a huge fridge freezer which has constant cold drinking water and ice, was a treat. The whole kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly think off. The villa has three bedrooms, two with huge en-suites and another family bathroom. Again everything has been thought off in these rooms as well. There are plenty and I do mean plenty good quality towels in all the bathrooms, as well as lots of extra ones in the chest of drawers in the hall. Each bathroom also has shampoo, shower gel and liquid hand wash. In the kitchen, all you need for washing up, dishwasher tablets etc are all provided. There is a utility room off the main house at the back and again, soap powder, etc is all provided. The attention to detail throughout the house is the best we have ever experienced. Also, the house is spotlessly clean.

We picked oranges from the trees every morning for our breakfast juice and lemons for our G&T's. There are many more fruit trees, many of which are still to ripen.

Karen and Ian also supply the most generous welcome pack. The fridge was full when we arrived and it was great to be able to have breakfast the first morning rather than rushing off the supermarket.

The village is only 10 mins walk and there are a few bars etc. The main supermarket is a 10 min drive away. There is a Sunday market with all the usual things but the fruit and veg stalls are fantastic and so cheap. There are also two chicken vans at the market which have hot chicken and roast potatoes, saving doing any cooking on a Sunday. There is also a great pizza place just outside the village which is also great value. But for authentic Spanish food the best places are in Aquilas.

Karen and Ian were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble - they are available by phone whenever you want them. We met up with them in Aquilas and we has a lovely lunch with them at a restaurant which we would never have found by ourselves.

We would recommend this villa and hope to visit again one day in the future.

Modern, comfortable, well equipped home from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Lorca for 4 weeks Jan/Feb 2014.

Karen & Ian have thought of everything for the comfort of their guests....the very generous welcome pack, the well equipped kitchen & high end appliances, filtered water & ice, top quality bedding & towels, even an electric blanket & an ample supply of wood for the fire.....essential for the cold winter nights.

Our hosts were very helpful and have a substantial knowledge of the area.

Purias is quiet & rural but Lorca & the shopping mall are a 10 mins drive away, Aguillas with it's good restaurants & beaches 20 mins.

The castles in both towns are worth visiting.

The Murcia region is very interesting & easy to explore.

We have no hesitation in recommending this home from home.

Superb Villa with all mod cons.

  • 5 of 5

What a great villa! 5 of us stayed over the christmas holiday. We were welcomed by the owners Ian & Karen whom I was in contact with pre-booking the villa. Ian & Karen are really welcoming, friendly & thoughtful.Because we arrived on a sunday,they left more than enough supplied in the fridge for us and nice treat for the kids. The jacuzzi was a really nice treat. My daughter enjoyed making fresh squeeze orange juice every morning from the orange trees in the gardens. The kids enjoyed the mini golf too. The villa is very well positioned, walking distance to restaurants & shop, and 10 minutes drive to Lorca. It is a really really nice villa and thank you Karen & Ian for everything I wouldn't stay anywhere else but villa lorca if I was in the area.

A lovely, well-maintained and fully-equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

Six of us spent 10 wonderful days at this beautiful villa. It really is equipped to the highest standard and is in a very good location. We were met on arrival by its friendly and helpful owners who showed us around, left us with lots of info to refer to and a phone to contact them on should we need to. They then left us to make ourselves at home and it really is a home from home.

The filtered water and ice maker were great and meant we didn't need to haul bottles of water from the nearby supermarket, it also left more room in the fridges(s) for beer!

The villa is clean and comfortable with lots of outside space for the kids (& adults) to enjoy, books and games are at your disposal and the comprehensive and generous welcome pack means that you can start your holiday immediately and worry about supplies later. We didn't stray far, we didn't need to but we did take an evening stroll in nearby Aguilas and Mazarron and enjoyed a couple of nice meals out. The beach is not too far for the obligatory toe dip in the sea but we spent most of the time beside the lovely pool.

What surprised me most was the day that we called Karen to find out where to get my daughter's injured finger checked out. We just needed to know where to go but Karen & Ian were with us within an hour. Accompanied my husband to A&E AND stayed to translate. This made it stress-free and easy; they really didn't have to do that for us but they were more than happy to help! Other than that they left us to enjoy our holiday. PERFECT HOSTS!

Both kids (12 & 9) said it was their favourite of all the villas that we have stayed in and ended their last day by saying "Can we come back here next year please?" - recommendations don't come much better than that. I can absolutely say, with qualm, that I would book this place again in the future.

So, if you are looking for an extremely well-equipped, clean villa in an easy to access location then Villa Lorca is definitely one for you. It has a great pool, beautiful spacious grounds and has everything you need for a relaxing break in the sun. Loads of outdoor seating to enjoy the warm evenings. You do need a car (but you even get to park that in the shade) but amenities are not far away.

Book this property with confidence, it's lovely!

Very relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband have just spent seventeen wonderful days in this lovely villa. Ian and Karen were very friendly and helpful and couldn't have been more welcoming. The villa is very homely and comfortable, and everything that we needed was there, It is well maintained and very clean. We visited Lorca, Murcia , Aquilas (nice coastal town) and some small villages around, but most of the evenings we stayed at villa and relax. Having swim, barbaque, and enjoying the sun. From all the villas we have rented, this one was really the best.
