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!

Great place to stay

5 of 5
We had been staying on the La Manga strip for 10 days and had booked this place for a week to chill out in the sun when our family returned home. It is a clean and spacious two bed property in a residential area of Los Alcazares. We did not mind that there was no view from the terrace as we wanted SUN. The apartment is well equipped and has the double bonus of UK TV and decent wifi (for BBC and C4 catchup and ITV streaming). The lounge has comfortable setees (not the awful fold-out bed type). The sun is on the terrace most of the day and so it was lovely to have a covered-in section with table and chairs when it got too hot. The local supermarket was a few minutes' walk, as was the Mar Menor. The Spar shown on Maps was not open when we stayed. If you walk past the Tennis centre through the tree-lined way outside and go to the end of the trees, turned right and looked left as you arrive at the main road, you will see the American restaurant, the Chinese multi shop and a good supermarket. The only slight negative is that the utility room really smells awful. It could easily be solved, as the washing machine just needs the waste to be plumbed in with a standard water trap. This place is highly recommended by us.

Good

The apartment was spacious and everything was there. You do need a car or hire a bike to get around. But if you like walking the supermarket is only 6 minutes away and on a Monday there is a market 15 minutes walk. Will book again
