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!

We primarily came to this resort and location for the golf. In terms of the villa, it is set in a superb location on the resort being no more than a 10 minute walk from the hotel, amenities (shop and decent resturants) and the golf. The villa itself has everything you need in a villa aborad. Decent size of all rooms. The 3 bathrooms is a bonus! Although we had fantastic weather (near to 15°C at the beginning of june- just the wind that was chilly) we weren't able to use the pool, and it wasn't warm enough to sit outside- however in the summer these would be great as well as the veranda! The great TV was a bonus for us too with English channels. Overall we found no faults with the villa itself. Ticks all the boxes really. We were very impressed, and found it very helpful, being able to contact the couple that look after the villa over in Spain. Gary was very helpful and set up the golf tee times and clubs along with the golf centre for us which was fantastic. And anything we needed we knew we could contact him which always put our mind at ease. We were able to use the facilities in the hotel which was great for the women- when the men played golf we were able to use the spa at the hotel which was fab. The resturants Around were great. There's a couple linked to the hotel, and then if you take a walk about 15 minutes outside the gates of the resort there are other resturants and one is a pub style which is nice and popular. Overall we had such a nice break away, everything went well, no problems. Easy to book, easy owners to contact if we needed. Great and accurate information given to us by the owners prior to leaving. We definitly want to be visiting this villa again throughout the year and feel very thankful for such a great break away.

Made good use of the two sets of clubs available in the apartment. Really nice bar and restaurant on site and definitely worth a visit. Great food ,service and value. Looking forward to our next visit later in year.
