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.

It was ideal for our family 2 adults and two young adults (20 & 16). In a quiet location we spent most days lazing by the private pool and then drove to Murcia or Cartagena at night . You definitely need a car as the villa is remotely situated so it's not for anyone that needs entertainment. We didn't need to contact Della or Neil as we had everything we needed. The villa is spotless and very well maintained.We ate in the clubhouse once and there was a band playing another night and the staff were very friendly. My husband and son used the gym and found it good.One piece of advice is to pack mosquito repellent and ant powder as this is a drawback of being surrounded by so much greenery. Would definitely recommend this villa for a relaxing holiday.

I stayed with my husband and 2 children (age 6 and9). We stocked the fridge up from the mercadona in los alcazeres and loved using the charcoal barbecue. Just bought coals and firefighters and it cooked brilliantly, doesn't look like much but works great. We used both the community pool and apartment pools. The community pool has well kept toilets but you need to purchase something from the bar area to get in- we all had ice creams from a counter stocking a variety of flavours. The apartment pool was nice and quiet but no toilets (as it's mainly for folk in the apartments attached) We went to the beach at los alcazeres and also a trip into Murcia-well worth the 40 min drive. We also attended the kids disco at the intercontinental and the bar prices were reasonable. Boys loved it. We will definitely be back. Diane
