4 Bedrooms; 4 bathrooms; sleeps up to 8-10 people

Fully detached villa within an urbanization providing all necessary facilities within only a few minutes walk or drive. Sitting on a 600 square meter plot with high walls and gated for privacy. Private 9 metre x 4 metre pool. satellite TV/DVD player, WIFI, Well equipped kitchen (incl fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing m/c etc:). Wood burning stove.

Three bedrooms have en suite facilities and the fourth bedroom a shower room attached.

Golf: A quality 18 hole golf course is part of the urbanization, less than 5 minutes drive away from the villa. Handicap certificate is essential before guests can play on the course. Unlike many Spanish courses, it is undulating and has tree lined fairways ensuring a 'mature' aspect throughout the 18 holes.

The club house provides the usual facilities you would expect from a quality club.

Typically a 'menu de Dia' (3 courses plus a drink) for approx 10 Euros!!!

Great villa - superb vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Carpe Diem for two weeks this summer and had a great vacation. Already before leaving for Spain, we had good and frequent contact with the owners, who responded quickly and were most helpful.

You will find Villa Carpe Diem as described and visualized on this page. We found the place nice and clean. The swimming pool was cleaned two times a week.The local representative was very kind and helpful.

Our two weeks flew by. Our kids practically lived in and by the pool and we did many day trips to cities and sights nearby; Lorca, Totana, Sierra de Espuña, Cartageña, etc.

We can highly recommend this place if you need a place with lots of space, a great pool area and a tranquil neighborhood.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely villa, really enjoyed our stay. Feels like a home away from home, and will be back again.... The pool is a great bonus, and the BBQ area was well used!

Weather was fantastic, and the restaurants, although a drive away, are well worth the trip. Still feels very Spanish outside of Camposol, but very easy to get along within the direct area, even with our pigeon Spanish.

Perfect holidays at Carpe Diem!

  • 5 of 5

We already stayed at "Carpe Diem" twice: in June 2011 and May/June 2012 and we enjoyed both stays very much!! The villa is perfect for a family with 5 children- we´ve never had a house with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms before!

Everything in the villa was very clean and comfortable. For us it was also important to have a washing machine and enough space to dry clothes and towels from the beach. The kitchen was perfect, too.

During the days especially the children spent plenty of time in the pool and in the evenings we often went to the beach. We also went to quite many places nearby and more far away: Murcia, Sierra Espuna, Cartagena, Mazarron, Lorca, Granada, Cabo de Gata, Malaga (with a stay at the youth-hostel in Malaga for one night)

The mail-contact to the owners was (and still is) very friendly and Martine -who looked after the villa- was very helpful and kind!

We hope to come back to the villa very soon!!!

Another lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

Another blissful week in the villa. Not our first stay, and it won't be our last.

A home from home, all creature comforts plus a few special comforts thrown in. Lovely pool, great bbq area, comfortable inside and out. Great choice of local restaurants and beaches, loads of which are recommended by the owners, and the port is looking amazing. Can't wait till next time, thanks

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a great holiday here, the villa was very comfortable and was well set up for kids. The beds where really comfortable which is quite rare when your on holiday. The bathrooms where a great size and had a bath for the kids which was great. Such an enjoyable holiday and spent most of it in the villa by the pool and at night having bbqs. It was like a home from home but way better weather.

Car: recommended

The villa is set in an urbanization surrounded by Sierras (hills) which provide a stunning backdrop for the property. The Region is the principal market gardening area of Spain and the local markets (Wednesday and Sunday) provide wonderful fruit, veg, garden plants etc: at very cheap prices. The Sierra Espuna national park is within 30 minutes drive. Safe sandy beaches are within 10/15 minutes drive at Peurto de Mazarron and Bolnuevo. The beautiful historical cities of Murcia, Cartagena and Lorca are all within 45 minutes drive. An extensive high quality shopping complex was opened just outside Murcia in 2007 which is comfortably reached within 40 minutes. This complex is right next to the new Real Murcia Football Ground (Real Murcia play in La Liga with Real Madrid, Barcelona etc:). A little further afield are the wine making towns of Jumilla, Bullas and Mula.

Other Activities: go - karting; ten pin bowling
