About Bruce and Carole Gowland

I am a former Managing Director of a busy UK based company. We purchased the Villa to escape to the sun away from the hectic life within a few hours flight. My wife was in charge of furnishing the Villa to a very high standard and spent many months choosing authentic furniture. Our 3 children have had many wonderful holidays at the Villa with us, exploring the area and relaxing in the sun.

Bruce and Carole Gowland purchased this villa in 2007

Why Bruce and Carole Gowland chose Murcia - Costa Calida

We chose the Murcia Region because it has a diverse appeal from beaches, history, culture, festivals an endless change of activity. El Valle is conveniently located for local beaches, mountain walks, golf, Murcia City, Cartengena, Lorca and much more.

We like the informality and relaxing atmosphere including the Clubhouse Terrace Restaurant overlooking the 18th Green and views of the Mar Menor in the distance.

What makes this villa unique

The added bonus of Championship Golf on our doorstep, 350 days of sunshine and economical flights from the UK make EL Valle a special place.

Lovely relaxing time in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This was a returning visit to the villa and coming back the villa was in the same impeccable condition as before. It is the ideal place to relax with a young family. Our boys loved playing in the pool and heading to the clubhouse for an ice cream. The villa is well equipt and is a home from home. The beach is easy to get to by car and there are number of beaches to choose from. As well as going to the beach, Murcia and Cartagena are well worth a visit. A lovely villa in a beautiful part of Spain.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a wonderful relaxing villa. We are a family of four (two boys aged 17 and 20) and we have had a fantastic two week break in this beautiful villa of yours. We were expecting it to be nice but were bowled over in how lovely this property is and all of the facilities that are there to be used. As a family we have been going to villas sometimes twice a year over a 20 year period and we can honestly say this was one of the best that we have holidayed in. We all slept well, ate well and really enjoyed the sunset every night. Hopefully we will be back again. Many thank Carole and Bruce for letting us spend time in your second home.

Must also say that Sally was more than helpful while we were at the villa.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is just ideal for a perfect holiday on a golf resort. We were about 5 mins walk from the clubhouse and 1st Tee. We were overlooking the 5th fairway so we could watch the golfers and then in the evening we could watch the sunset. The setting was peaceful and quiet, yet close to everything at the same time. 20 mins drive took us to the beach, or La Zenia Shopping Centre and 5 mins drive took us to Basilcas to get the train to Murcia city or Cartagena.

When I looked at the photos on the website I was certainly impressed. When we arrived at the villa we were very impressed, it is just perfect and the furnishings were what you would expect and want in your own home. All in all a wonderful experience. Thank you to Bruce & Carol, we will return.

Oh! and the golf course and clubhouse is excellent too!!

The Stevensons, the Wilsons and the Logans.

There was plenty of information at the villa regarding sightseeing & restaurants which is all up to date , the clubhouse is a 5 min walk which has a restaurant & shop which sells everything you need . The villa is tastefully furnished & has plenty of space with ample outdoor seating . Thank you Bruce & Carol for making our family celebration a special memories time.
