|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
Villa Fortuna is a tastefully furnished, modern, recently renovated holiday home. It comprises 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a WC, a living room with open-plan kitchen, a big beautiful garden with swimming pool, a barbecue, and some nice cosy spots to relax.
3 of the bedrooms have separable double beds while another bedroom has 2 single beds in a bunk bed. One of the bedrooms is a studio suite with en-suite bathroom. One of the bathrooms is in the middle of the house and a WC is located next to the swimming pool. The house boasts a special, cosy atmosphere and is very well lit.
The neighbourhood is very peaceful and is the ideal place to unwind. Nevertheless, the area offers a wide variety of nearby activities, restaurants, and bars. The many activities include various water sports, such as wind-surfing, kite surfing, stand up paddle boarding, surfing, canoeing, paddling, water skiing, wake boarding, water scootering, sailing, diving, snorkelling, and more. The Mediterranean Sea is a natural paradise that is best enjoyed on a sailboat, which can be hired along with its captain – an unforgettable experience.
La Manga Club Resort has an excellent golf course and lies just a few kilometres down the road. Why not go hiking in the Calblanque nature reserve and enjoy its long beaches and mountainous landscape?
For our more culturally-inclined guests, nearby Cartagena and Murcia both boast museums and Roman historical sites and ruins in the city centre.
Spain is renowned for its wine culture and cuisine, which are both very prominent here. The local type of wine is called Jumilla, which is made in the Region of Murcia, and many local wineries offer tours. You can even take part in the olive harvest and try various types of olive oil.
Spanish cuisine is varied, and La Manga offers delicious seafood all year round, as well as traditional dishes such as paella, Serrano ham, tortillas, etc.
We recommend that you hire a rental car; we believe it to be the best way to explore the area. Granada, which lies outside the Region of Murcia, is only a couple of hours away – we highly recommend a visit to the historic Alhambra. Seville is another city that is definitely worth a visit, and Andalusia is only a short drive away. In the opposite direction, Valencia, with its many tourist sites, lies 3 hours to the North, while Madrid, located further inland, is 4 hours away.
The nearest international airport is located in Alicante, which also offers car rentals.
We would be happy to help you plan your holiday and organise activities, etc.
Bicycle, moped, surfboard and surfing equipment rentals are available, as are surfing classes.
My name is Karin Persson and I am originally from Helsingborg, Sweden. I have lived here in La Manga for 10 years and own a business that provides glazing and other services, especially to Scandinavian clients.
I first came here on a kite surfing holiday and fell in love with La Manga, which means 'sleeve.' A long sand dune that stretches out over 25 km, it has the Mar Menor lagoon on one side and the Mediterranean Sea on the other. I place great importance in living by the sea, since I grew up on the coast; here in La Manga, I have as much beautiful coastline as I could ever want. The weather in La Manga is absolutely fantastic, as you will find out. The region has over 320 sunny days per year; it is warm enough to wear a t-shirt in December, and even on some days in February. There is a lot to do here, if you know where to look. The Spanish mainland is a gold mine of tourist sites, although sometimes you need a bit of help to find what you are looking for.
I am now the proud co-owner of a house that we have fully renovated. It is now absolutely gorgeous. I would be delighted to help my guests plan their holiday according to their tastes.
I would like to welcome you and request that you please ask me for information about fun activities and places of interest. I have lived here for many years and learned all there is to know about what the region has to offer.
Karin Persson purchased this villa in 2014
Villa Fortuna is located near my own home; living close by makes taking care of the villa a lot easier. I can also vouch for the beauty and serenity of this part of La Manga.
Villa Fortuna has that 'special something' that makes our guests feel right at home. Is it the lighting, the peace and quiet, the garden, the furniture, or the reflection on the pool water that can be seen from the house? I believe that it is a mixture of all of the above; however, our guests, especially the younger ones, tend to stay here and barbecue during the evening. They all rave about how well they slept and what a relaxing holiday they had. Even we, the owners, love coming here to water the flowers or take care of something inside the house or even to host social gatherings, rather than have them at home. Simply put, any stay in this house is extremely comfortable, for any number of reasons – it is a free-standing house with modern furnishings, a big garden, and a pool, located next to the sea, and much more.
We stayed at Villa Fortuna late 2014 into early 2015....we are a family of 4 plus a pet dog.
The villa was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean....everything you could need was there. The owners Karin and Chano were very keen to ensure that our stay was comfortable and that we had everything necessary.
The villa itself is very close to the water and the area is perfect for water sports. We found the owners local knowledge invaluable and again their generosity with advise and help was just fantastic. Our teenage sons loved the beaches which were extremely well kept and took advantage of the surf which was excellent....our timing for our visit later in the year also meant that access to the beaches was easy, we believe it can be busy in summer though.
From our experience, we can only say a huge thank you to Karin and Chano for our stay at Villa Fortuna. We had a wonderful stay and will be returning in the future.
The house is as great as on the pictures and the area is nice and a great place to be if you want to avoid too much turism. Karin thanks for your support and willingness to help us whenever needed. Soeren
Fuimos unos días en Semana Santa y la estancia fue estupendamente bien.
La casa es exactamente como aparece en las fotos, limpia y en una urbanización tranquila pero muy cerca del centro. Los propietarios muy atentos y siempre disponibles.
Everything was well maintained and clean. The house is situated in a very quite, peacefull town with the beach of Mar Menor within reach at 50m from the front door. You have the most beautifull sunset there... You can even get fresh bread every morning at 08.30 when a truck stops just in front of the house to sell bread in the neigbourhood! The owner lives nearby so every problem is quickly solved. Nice, but expensive, restaurant at the beachfront at the end of the street. Perfect for a quite relaxing vacation!
Hemos pasado unos días estupendos en Villa Fortuna. Viajamos 5 adultos + 2 niñas a principios de marzo, con un tiempo increíblemente bueno, aunque La Manga estaba muy tranquila y las playas prácticamente desiertas. Las fotos del anuncio responden absolutamente a la realidad: decoración sencilla con colores alegres, espacios muy bien aprovechados, todo inmaculadamente limpio y mil detalles para que te sientas a gusto: menaje de cocina, ropa de casa, muebles de exterior, información turística... y cuando necesitábamos algo, le consultábamos a Chano que siempre estaba dispuesto a ayudar. (Por cierto, si os va el deporte aventura, pedidle ideas). Cruzando la calle, a pocos metros, hay una playa muy tranquila (Mar Menor), buena para pasear o para que jueguen los niños, aunque no la recomiendo para bañarse porque tiene muchas algas. Pero si no os importa caminar o coger el coche, hay playas magníficas en la zona del Mediterráneo. Sobre las 9,30 de la mañana viene hasta la puerta una panadera que también trae dulces y empanadas deliciosos, y a poca distancia hay un almacén mayorista de frutas y verduras que también vende a particulares, y dos restaurantes. Es una zona muy tranquila (sólo chalets, muchos de ellos habitados en plena temporada baja, la mayoría eran apacibles extranjeros), pero la zona comercial de La Manga está muy cerca (con las niñas siempre íbamos en coche, pero los valientes pueden ir caminando) con Mercadona, Lidl, y todo tipo de comercios, restaurantes, bancos, locales de ocio... En resumen, tranquilidad pero con todas las posibilidades a un paso. Nosotros ya estamos deseando volver.
Villa Fortuna lies at the edge of La Manga del Mar Menor, near the Las Salinas salt lakes, where flamingos can be seen almost all year round. Mar Menor, Europe's biggest lagoon, and its beaches lie right outside the door, and the Mediterranean Sea is just a stone's throw away. The building is located in a peaceful neighbourhood of holiday homes and is the perfect place to relax. Furthermore, it is near a host of fun activities and great restaurants.
