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!!!

I have often been on holiday elsewhere and longed for home...here I was very sorry to leave. The owners were fantastic with communication. We had two rental cars (so that the family could go out whilst I played golf) but to be honest we could have had just one...the family were just happy to spend time at the villa and in particular the pool. From introduction to completion the process was easy - even when we had a small hiccup with Homeway, the owners made sure I was reassured that everything was in order. We would definitely book again.

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your wonderful villa. Spotlessly clean and fully stocked with everything we needed yet again. Thank you Chris for being so welcoming and being on hand for any query we had. One day we hope to meet Josephine 😀. Rhys, Helen, Amelia & Eloise.

The apartment provided everything we could have possibly needed and had a real 'home from home' feeling. It was extremely clean and well maintained and was exactly as it had appeared on the photos. The swimming pools were cleaned every morning and were never overly packed, making swimming and sunbathing a pleasure at any time of day. The information provided by Diane beforehand and the information available in the apartment meant that we had some fabulous days out in Cartegenna, Murcia, Lo Pagan, La Manga and Los Alcazares, as well as visiting some incredible beaches. The complex is very clean, and well kept with a very well stocked supermarket and friendly, helpful staff. Our keyholder Ken was most helpful on our arrival and gave us lots of tips and advice for our stay. Thank you for allowing us to rent your apartment, we will definitely be returning in the future.
