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!!!

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.

                              Best holiday ever. Amazing

                              5 of 5
                              Just spent a fantastic week here. Party included 5 month old baby. 4 year old. Couple of young parents and then the grandparents. Everything you could ever imagine you would need is provided in the villa. And then some. We have never stayed in and chilled on a holiday before. We have done villas. But none have Resulted in feeling relaxed and chilled as much as this. It is fairly isolated. The beach bar 100yds along the beach was welcoming. They even brought in a Tv for the England match. Food here is ok. Staff were brilliant. The much reviewed el parador is a short stroll away which has a lovely view and I'll leave it at that. Magdalena was brilliant. She is so friendly. She even made us some home made chocolate donuts mid week. She can't speak English and we can't speak Spanish but with some assistance from her friend and translator they even ordered us a take away on the night of our arrival as we had all been up since 2am and had no energy left to contemplate cooking or going out. Children loved it too. Steady flow of people passing by that Appeared naked and covered in mud to our amusement. We struggled getting cable on the tv but a phone call to Magdalena resulted in the cable guy turning up before the next match. There is nothing I can say that is negative. This is by far one of the best holidays I have had and is definitely the only holiday that I have had that I have returned home rested and ready to return to work. I will definitely come back. Weather was hot hot hot so the baby struggled with the heat but the air conditioning cooled him down.

                              Wonderful

                              The accomodation far exceeded our expectations. The decor and fittings are excellent and both the owners and the management company provided excellent service and were very quick to respond to any of our requests. Communication with the owners was excellent and the information provided ensured a wonderful stay. I would recommend this accomodation to couples and families. The facilities on the resort are great and the community pools are well maintained with two within a minute walk of the villa. We enjoyed lovely meals out and made use of the barbecue on the extensive balcony. If travelling with friends there are 3 terraces - allowing some private space if needed. If we return to La Manga in the future I would definitely want this villa. Thank you for a lovely stay.
