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!

5 of 5
I booked this for my family , they were thrilled with the apartment The apartment is bright, comfortable and spotlessly clean and very well equipped for guests. They loved the very sunny terrace overlooking the pool and the wifi was excellent . I would highly recommend this apartment , it's in a great location in the resort of Los Alcalzares very near to supermarkets , bars , restaurants and not too far a walk to the beach Good communication with the owner and keyholder will definitely be booking again .

Perfect location, perfect villa

5 of 5
We arrived at Murcia Airport and was greeted by a lovely gentleman arranged by Grace and Dan, who took us to a large supermarket, dropped us off and then picked us up within a hour to collect our drinks and food for the villa. We were surprised of the space of the villa , home from home comforts. To get about was so easy, sea front was a ten minute walk to lots of bars and resturants. We found quicker routes to get around to Pinatar town, San Janiver and obviously Lo Pagan. If you are a fitness fanatic you can hire bikes but walking to all the local villages are just as fabulous as you see more. Take your running shoes as you will be jealous seeing everyone running, walking and basically keeping fit. We walked at least 15 miles a day, inbetween drinking cocktails and posh wine and of course beers and sangria. We found a perfect bar called Select Bar in the square of Pinatar, free tapas with your drinks. We also found a great fresh fish store, and a supermarket, didn't realise the supermarket was there so look out for that, selling fresh bread, meats,fish and again drinks. There is a carrfour express in Lo Pagan so your not far away from food shops. we didn't try many restaurants as we love cooking ourselves, but one restaurant we loved was called Domingos el Portuguese - fabulous food, fab service. Lunch time they do 10 Euro perfect for two. Two dishes desert and a half jug of wine. Pick up service was amazing again Christina picked us on time to take us back to the airport. If you are not planning on driving anywhere this is the perfect place to walk and use Grace and Dan from and to the airport who Jane will give you contact details for. Jane has been brill responded to all my emails and messages and made the whole experience perfect for the family. Will be coming back next year.
