Roda, or Senoria de Roda to give it its full title is a wonderful beach and golf resort on the Costa Calida in Spain. Ideally located for the best of beach holidays, with the Mediterranean and the warm, still waters of the Mar Menor within easy walk of any privately owned Roda villas, and set on one of the best 18 hole golf courses in Murcia, it is little wonder that the resort is such a favourite with families throughout the year.
There is very little that you cannot do from a holiday rental property in Roda, Spain. The 18 hole 72 par Roda golf course is a huge attraction, designed by Dave Thomas, and offering a challenge to every standard of golfer. The new clubhouse is a wonderful place to relax after a round, with stunning views of the course, a spa, a fantastic bar and a top class restaurant which makes playing Roda golf a complete experience in itself.
A Roda villa’s proximity to the warm, clean waters of the Mar Menor, Europe’s largest saltwater lagoon makes the area a real favourite with families during the long summer months. Mar Menor is a water sports haven of the highest quality, lined with fine, golden sand and with waters always around 5°C warmer than the Mediterranean at any time of year. Many lazy days can be spent happily stretched out on the beaches of Mar Menor, but if you would like to enjoy a little activity or keep children endlessly entertained, the vast array of water sports on offer will be of huge appeal. Sailing, windsurfing and even scuba diving trips thrive in the Mar Menor, and with the Mediterranean so close, deep sea fishing and scuba diving holidays are world class from a privately owned villa in Roda, Spain.
There are a great range of trails leading into the Murcia countryside from Roda, which can be explored on foot, by bicycle or from the saddle. There is an excellent equestrian centre just a few miles from the Roda Golf and Beach resort, which offer excellent guided rides into the national parks and wild countryside of the area. After a long day in the saddle, a visit to the wonderful Lo Pagan mud baths is the perfect way to cap a perfect day.
The town of Los Alcazares is just 2 minutes from Roda accommodation. All the shops, restaurants and bars you might need can be found in Alcazares, and if you are staying in a privately owned Roda villa for any length of time, the many treasures of Alcazares will become wonderfully familiar.
Murcia is blessed with a beautiful climate, with short, mild winters and wonderfully long, hot summers. The period between May and October is the most popular time to visit a self catering Roda villa, as temperatures can be almost guaranteed to peak in the mid 30’s (30°C) on a daily basis, with July and August being especially hot. During the winter, conditions remain ideal for golf in Roda, with very little rain and daily temperatures remaining above 15°C on most days.
Privately owned villa in Roda can be reached in just 10 minutes after leaving Murcia’s San Javier Airport (MJV). There are an astonishing number of flights arriving into Murcia from across the UK on a daily basis, arriving from airports including Manchester (MAN), Birmingham (BHX), London and Edinburgh (EDI).
