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.

We were sent very clear directions which got us to the villa within the hour from leaving the car hire depot. One thing I would say about motorway driving in Spain is that the junctions are not numbered consecutively as in the UK; they appear to be based on kilometer distances. Other than that, driving is a breeze and the roads are much better and quieter over there. On arrival, we were met by Carol - an absolute delight, who was extremely helpful right from the time we arrived and was only a phone call away for a little advice for us when we needed it. The villa was spotless and had everything you could wish for which I won't go into as everything has already been said in previous reviews. We did wonder if being in close proximity to other villas might cause an issue, perhaps with noise, but nothing could be further from the truth. We hardly saw anybody in the adjacent properties and didn't hear any noise at all. It's just so peaceful. The pool was the best we've come across at a villa, being fairly large and easily accessed via some very easy steps at the shallow end or, if preferred, a ladder at the deep end. Campasol, the complex or urbanisation as it's called, has everything you need with shops and restaurants to cater for most tastes although we didn't eat or drink down there. On the opposite side of the 'motorway' is a smaller shopping complex with an English butcher (round the back) who was very helpful. Furthermore, his barbecue packs were superb - highly recommended. Other shopping is available either in Mazarron town or there's a Lidl a bit further on towards Puerto de Mazarron which you come to on the outskirts of the town. Parking is easy if you go straight on past Lidl to the roundabout (approx 1KM) further on and turn right. There's plenty of free street parking. The port is beautiful and there are plenty of places to eat, all of which are reasonably priced. Car hire: Pauline advised us to check out Centauro who we went with. We chose the Premium package which includes all extras; there's nothing else to pay and you get an express check-in lane when collecting the vehicle. Their mini bus was waiting right outside the airport to take you to their depot which is about a three to four minute drive away. We loved the whole experience and hence we've booked again already for next yea

Close to all the shops, bars and restaurants of Camposol. My 2 boys (6 and 15) loved the pool area, where they spent most of there time. We had a very relaxing time at Casa Porfin and would definitely recommend. Thank you Arno and Louis for the great holiday experience. The Dyson Family.
