Make a holiday rental home or villa in Lorca, Spain your home away from home

Located 74km south-west of the city of Murcia, Lorca is a tranquil destination that offers good transport links to the capital of the region, and has become an important tourist centre as a result. With historical sites to be enjoyed, almond tree-dotted countryside to be explored, some high-quality apartments and villas to stay in and a good range of amenities thrown in for convenience, Lorca has everything to keep self-catering visitors happy for the duration of their stay in this often-under appreciated part of Spain.

Things to do in Lorca, Spain

The mains sites in Lorca are historical ones, with the 16th century Church of San Francisco and the 17th century Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) particular highlights. Much of the action is centred around the Plaza de Espana, which itself is slap bang in the middle of the historical centre of town. The old town consists of a number of narrowing winding streets and alleyways, which make for great exploring and sightseeing at a leisurely pace.

Lorca is also a recommended destination for those looking to enjoy the countryside of the Murcia region, with plenty of walking and hiking routes to choose from, and plenty of high-quality photographic opportunities for those attracted to roaming landscapes and unspoilt scenery.

Despite its historical heritage and laid-back feel, Lorca still has enough to keep more active visitors happy. There are good shopping and dining options within the town and a bevy of vibrant fiestas to be enjoyed at various times of the year, including the ten-day Grand Feria, which is held every September.

Though there are several bars and cafés within the town centre, those seeking a more active nightlife may be best to head to Murcia, which – thanks to the excellent transport links – can be reached in under an hour.

The property was spotless, comfortable with everything you wish for, excellent for the dogs and made very good friends who live nearby. It has a quiet location and we are going to stay once more in August next year. Andrew has been excellent in answering queries and Nick and his wife, the pool man living nearby has always been very friendly and most of all very helpful, should we needed anything. The pool is the summer is always nice and kept very clean and offers a cool relief from the temperatures. Thoroughly recommend it.

All dealings with Ben were effective and responsive. The local supermarket is large and has everything you could need. We used the villa as a base for visiting the wider area to get more of the 'real Spain', enjoying the peace and quiet on our return each day.

Set in a stunning location, only a little drive from the Local Village Rubio which itself is beautiful which some lovely small bars and great places to eat. A car is advisable if you want to get out and about as there are no taxis or busses locally, but don't let this put you off as if you want to stay at home simply stock up relax and enjoy the pool and surroundings. The apartment is part of a stunning mill conversion with superb facilities, a traditional style with a modern feel and kept in pristine condition. As for the hosts, they live on site and great you with great warmth and whilst they live on site they you would not know they are there, unless of course you need them, then there is plenty to offer... great conversation and knowledge of the local area and will do anything to help you along with your holiday, but they are only about if you need them.... Nothing was too much trouble! Simply a stunning well kept gem in a beautiful area surrounded by Olive groves with spectacular views...... We will be back! Thanks, Richard & Michelle.
