Make a holiday villa or apartment in Costa Calida your home away from home

With an easy-to-browse range of holiday rentals, HomeAway can help you find the ideal villa or apartment in Costa Calida. This is a prime holiday region, celebrated for the high calibre of its golf courses and sandy beaches, but with some formidably rocky rural scenery to explore as well. Villas in Costa Calida tend to be modern and spacious, and many enjoy exquisite views of the coast. You’ll also be able to select the location that matches your holiday plans, whether it’s on the waterfront or just a short walk from the nearest course. In one of Spain’s hottest regions it’s no surprise to find that many Costa Calida apartments feature the additional luxury of private pools and the convenience of air conditioning.

Things to do

-Beaches. There’s a long and varied coastline in Murcia, boasting cliffs, the large Mar Menor lagoon, sandy beaches and attractive fishing villages. World-famous is La Manga del Mar Menor, the long sandy spit that separates Europe’s largest lagoon from the Mediterranean, home to some sublime beaches and first-class amenities. Calblanque is another spectacular beach, set within a regional park.

-Food and drink. Murcia is a region billed as Spain’s “vegetable patch”, and has long been known for its natural produce. On the coast dishes will include sardines, monkfish, grouper, mullet, prawns and tuna. Inland, traditional cuisine involves stews comprised of local vegetables, while pork is also a mainstay, grilled, or in the form of a variety of sausages.

-History. The port of Cartagena was a major settlement in Roman times, and you can still see remnants from this era in the form of the well-preserved Roman theatre, a colonnade and various temples. The city of Murcia has a spectacular Moorish castle, which sits atop the Monteagudo hill and offers lovely views.

-Golf. Thanks to the warm weather many of the local golf courses never close. A famous option here is the La Manga Club Resort, co-designed by PGA legend Arnold Palmer in the early-70s. Another prestigious course can be found near Mar Menor at Roda, home to a wealth of facilities and famed for its innovative, water-surrounded 7th hole.

-Rural scenery. A short drive inland from the coast will bring you to some idyllic landscapes, boasting vineyards, forests and farms, perfect for walks and bike rides. In places the scenery can be rugged, and there are numerous historic sites to seek out, such as medieval churches, hermitages and convents.

Weather in Costa Calida

On holiday on the Costa Calida you’ll encounter a warm Mediterranean climate, which as well as bringing uniquely high average temperatures also results in very little rainfall. Some years temperatures reach the mid-20s as early as April, and the warm weather remains until at least October. In July and August daily highs get well above 30 degrees. Winters here are usually mild, bringing daytime highs in the mid-teens or more, and temperatures rarely getting close to freezing at night.

Travel to Costa Calida

You can get to Costa Calida apartments from abroad via Murcia-San Javier Airport (MJV), which has low-cost connections with a number of airports in the UK, Spain and the rest of Europe. In the region the A7 and AP7 Autovia and Autopista roads run adjacent to Murcia’s coastline, while the A-30 heads inland in the direction of Madrid. Most major towns here, such as Aguilas, Cartagena, Cieza and Balsicas, are on the Renfe regional railway lines, which offer a cheap and efficient service.

Peaceful as ever!

4 of 5
Second time back, would have been a third had not the previous reviewer got in there before us and we had to slum it at la torre golf! If you want a bar/restaurant/nightlife it's not for you and you need a non drinker to drive you about if not. Or stock up and use the wonderful space, BBQ and peace and quiet. Having said that, its a high end spec apartment with a wonderful patio area, clean, wellatively well equipped, more tea towels or even better as previously reviewed, a dishwasher would be wonderful! (Especially as you are 90% likely to be self catering!!) Also some decent fold up chairs to take to the beach or pool, the present ones, tho trendy are uncomfortable,a bit worse for wear,and not the sort you can take to the beach or pool easily. I really hope that just one enterprise could set up a shop, or the guys running the gym/social club could get a mini bar up and running, even if it's just high season to start with. It's a truly wonderful place, but just one or two little things would boost their economy/turnover so much. Personally we would just like a place to get bread, milk etc as la tercia, where the nearest shop is, is not a morning stroll and I'm an aerobics instructor!! As mentioned, mark and Maria are great and very helpful, I wouldwhole heartedly recommend this place and if I'm honest have not reviewed it before as we wanted to keep it to ourselves. Thank you Rosemary, we are planning to be back soon.

This house is a home from home.

5 of 5
This house is the best possible base for your holiday. We stayed last year and we will be back next year. Extremely well looked after, everything you could possibly need down to a pencil sharpener. Thanks to Peter for personally collecting us from the airport. Fabulous area. Wonderful beach 15 mins away. If you want to walk it is flat. Hire a bike, go jogging or just chill in the sun.
