Make a holiday rental, home, or villa in Cartagena Spain your home away from home

This famous Spanish port is steeped with history and culture. Although much of the city has been renovated, architecture from ages gone by still mingles with the new, to form a fascinating mosaic. Life in Cartagena Spain is slow and relaxing, with many fine restaurants and bars. The Cartagena coast enjoys sailing, windsurfing and excellent diving and other watersports, and the town acts as a convenient base to explore the ancient city of Murcia.

The most famous resort in the region is the Mar Menor golf resort, (Mar Menor means ‘little sea’), the name taken from the largest salt water lagoon in Europe, on the banks of which the resort sits. The lakes temperature is on average 5°C hotter than the sea, and there is an almost constant breeze, making Mar Menor properties a favourite base for participating in watersports, such as windsurfing, kite-surfing, jetskiing and sailing. The beaches here are also particularly popular with families, due to the warm, shallow waters.

La Manga, the 24km strip of land between sea and lagoon, offers over 40km of beaches, giving a unique opportunity to choose between two separate seas, with very different temperatures, one of which is calm, and the other with waves!!!

Places to Holiday in Cartagena

If you are not suitably tempted by taking a holiday villa in Mar Menor, La Manga, or one of the famous Polaris World resorts, there are plenty of surrounding villages offering self-catering family apartments, with access to all Cartagena has to offer.

Los Alcazares – the Romans first discovered the benefits of taking a holiday villa here due to the therapeutic waters. The spas have been open ever since, as Los Alcazares is a fantastic place to relax and recuperate away from the family!

Playa Paraiso – this is a new development perfectly positioned to take full advantage of all there is to offer in the region, Just 20 minutes from San Javier Airport, 200m from the beach and surrounded by golf courses, Mar de Cristal, and the twin defensive towers at Mazerron, where feasts and fiestas are popular all year round, and home to the Bolnueuo nudist beach.

Cartagena Weather

Cartagena benefits from warm summers, averaging over 21°C, and very mild winters, rarely dropping below 10°C. Also, rain is rare, and the water can reach 30°C by August, making Cartagena great for last minute holidays at any time of the year.

Travel to Cartagena

Flights to Cartagena go from many British airports; Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, LeedsLondonand others, from carriers including British Airways, Virgin and Monarch, so there is no excuse not to have a family holiday in Cartagena, or take that golf holiday in Mar Menor!

Last time we stayed in a hotel in the centre of Murcia, but as we had decided that La Torre was the place for us, we wanted to stay there to experience it whilst looking. When we arrived at the gate we were met by the keyholder who took us to the flat. A short lift ride to the penthouse and we were in and thanking our lucky stars that the apartment was fully central heated. By heck it was cold over there! There was also air con but I assure you, we had no need for that. There were also two large terraces which we walked around then went back into the warm. Oh, and a centrally located, fenced in communal pool. We spent many hours swimming in it.... don't be silly, it was far too cold, but we did walk around it on our way to the shop and it was impeccably maintained. We arrived too late for the on-site Spar supermarket so went down to the pseudo Irish bar and had a suitably large measure of JD to last us until breakfast. After stocking up on breakfast things we tried out the well equipped kitchen and found everything you could need to self cater. Bath/shower worked great with plenty of hot water. Plenty of UK tv channels and reliable wifi. Comfy sofas and a great little book full of places to visit and eat, which was useful as at this point in low season La Torre was a little quiet on the food front. Still, if there are 4 of you, the local Indian will collect and deliver - YOU, not the food. How cool is that? All in all a great apartment to stay. All communication before was straightforward and our deposit was returned swiftly. We'll probably be living over there by the end of the year but will keep Ann's details handy for when we have visitors as this apartment is so close to the Spar and the bar/clubhouse it will make for a perfect stay.

Situation is ideal as the caravan club restaurant is a short walk away, as is the supermarket and bars in the opposite direction. At the caravan club you can get a good quality meal or a selection of tasty tapas to eat in the sun. The balcony is more like an outside room and the biggest I have seen. I would recommend this place to anyone.
