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.

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.

Can't really see the golf course, as it doesn't extend down this far. The excellent communal pool was clean and well maintained, but was sometimes ruined by a group of Spanish teens who descended on the area most afternoons (out of the view of their parents I suspect!) to enjoy some very boisterous behaviour, which could be disturbing for many, especially young children or those trying to enjoy a quiet wallow like us. The apartment was equipped with everything you'd need including a great TV as advertised (the only area a bit short was tools for the BBQ, but now there's a new set of tongs in the the drawer for the next guests!). BBQ and dining on the roof terrace was most enjoyable. Strangely the neighbouring owners/renters didn't use the roof terraces much, which was a bonus for us as I'd imagine it could interfere with the enjoyment of this excellent space a little, unless you're the very sociable type who love to 'talk over the garden wall' a lot. (We're clearly not very sociable!). Cooking, washing machine and dishwasher all great - the inclusive air con was in need of a bit of attention but it wasn't realistic to expect this to be attended to during our stay due to a weekend/public holiday. Bathroom very modern and includes a great shower unit (no bath). A car is pretty much essential on this resort unless you just want to stay put and relax. To make the most of things you really need to venture out to Mazarron for great beaches and other places like the spectacular mountain-side town of Aledo for a bit of sight-seeing. Condado itself is huge so it's a good 20 minute walk to the 'town centre' of Al Kazar, which is always full of activity and has several good places to eat and drink (we particularly liked La Cata and Sofia's), but is a fair distance for carrying shopping if no car. A well stocked supermarket is found there, plus bike hire and other shops. The golf course was in good condition with the best rates for those happy to just turn up and play or book a day in advance, as booking several days ahead can be considerably more expensive. Overall a great place to stay and the apartment was everything we could have hoped for at a very reasonable price - owner Jo very pleasant to deal with, as were the property managers (Military Breaks Plus) - Recommended!

The property is just a few miles away in a secluded spot in amongst the olive groves. We found it ideal for rest and recuperation from our hectic everyday lives. The apartment has a lovely large verandah/balcony with room to recline or eat meals at the large table, whilst admiring the stunning views of distant mountains. The only sound was the cicadas! Bliss! The spacious, clean apartment is well-equipped with 3 large bedrooms, each having their own bathroom. The beds were large and comfortable. Kitchen also well-equipped with everything you need. The property has a lovely swimming pool and poolside area with plenty of recliners and sun umbrellas for shade. The pool was immaculately kept, water crystal clear and just the right temperature. Sue the owner and her husband live on-site in their house and we found that excellent as any small hitches or enquiries were resolved immediately. Sue came to meet us in Velez Rubio to guide us to the property as it is secluded and there are many tiny roads in the vicinity. She was friendly and knowledgable about the area, and gave us advice on where to go and how to go about it. Yet she is also discreet, so we felt quite private at the property. It was a good balance and we felt she was keen for us to enjoy our stay here. We had a trip to Granada to see the Alhambra Palace, which is highly recommended, about an hour and a half away. Sue advised us to get our tickets on line first to be sure of gaining admittance. We also enjoyed a visit to nearby Velez Blanco and its market, great views and a castle, very picturesque. We also visited the beautiful turquoise Baza Lakes and there is a spa there where visitors can buy a day pass to use the facilities. Sue recommended us a couple of restaurants in Velez Rubio which were friendly with good food and also explained how to get to the supermarket. The town had a fiesta on the week we visited (first week of August), so we walked around the fairground at night and there was a lovely, family-friendly atmosphere. If you like a relaxing holiday, away from it all in traditional Spain with a kind and friendly but inobtrusive host, this is the place for you and we highly recommend it.
