El Algar, Murcia, Spain - The Spain the Spanish Keep Quiet About

There is something about the Murcia area of Spain that gets to your very heart - and El Algar is even more special. A small town in rural Costa Calida it has even been known to smell of lemon blossom when the trees are in flower. There is much about the area that is unique. Close by natural features such as the large salt water lagoon of the Mar Menor and the beautiful Mediterranean coast nestle against the splendour of the hills of the Calblanque National park. Day to day life in El Algar is typically Spanish with a local weekly market, fiestas and festivals particularly at Easter and all the hustle and bustle you would expect - together with the quiet siesta time. The nearest big town is Cartagena just ten minutes way. This old town is the "new" Carthage from Roman times and has extensive roman remains to prove it as well as a busy town centre with shops and restaurants and a lively port. There is plenty to do in the area with lots of amenities - from playing golf at the La Manga Club to scuba diving and go-karting to just sitting sipping wine watching the sun go down. Come to the real Spain – the one the Spanish keep quiet about!

Wonderful 3 Bedroom Apartment (we stayed 30th June - 13th July)

4 of 5
We stayed in this lovely 3 Bedroom apartment definitely home from home you didn't want for anything even towels were provided. Being a travel agent myself I would be more than happy to send any of my customers here. The apartment is very close to the pool area and a 5-10 minute walk to all the bars and restaurants and supermarkets. The apartment has plenty of hanging space for everyone's clothes also has 2 bathrooms which was a god send have teenage daughters. The apartment has WIFI and is also air conditioned (meter you buy tokens we stayed for 2 weeks and only used EURO25). There is a lovely patio area where you have 4 sunbeds, there is also another seating area which is undercover. The apartment has 1 Double Room and 2 x Twin Rooms all good size bedrooms. There are many restaurants which have fantastic food and not expensive here are a few we enjoyed. Rosalinds Pink Flamingo Roof Garden Restaurant ( has everything and caters for kids) Veni (also has a very wide menu) Angela's Pizzeria La Diva Hemingway Bistro (also a favourite of our lovely food and a fab menu). You will have a lovely stay in this apartment.

Fabulous stay!

5 of 5
We have just returned from an 11 night stay in this wonderful apartment! Myself, my mum and my 4 year old daughter. The location was spot on for our needs, being very flat for walking to shops, restaurants etc. The pool just outside the gate was perfect. The very hot weather didnt let up so unfortunately the only downside was no air con in the front bedroom, and even with the suggestion of leaving door open and living room air con on was just not enough. But we havent marked it down as everything else was fab. Tania, Lee very helpful. And Caroline/Peter wonderful from the beginning. Thanks so much xx
