About Paul Cattermole

Hi my name is Paul, my wife's name is Susan, we have been married for over 40 yrs and have 3 grown up children. Our UK residence is in the peak district and we have had 2 properties in Bolnuevo over the last 16 years, it is a lovely part of Spain. and we have lived there for a few years while 2 of our children lived in our UK house. Our eldest daughter has our two grandchildren our youngest daughter has now had our granddaughter in july 2016 , followed by a 2nd grandaughter in 2018 and we want to spend some time in the UK and do the grandparent thing, we both love the sun, eating out, golf. Entertaining and the outdoor life of Bolnuevo is great. Murcia has a lot of golf courses and is a great base for looking round the sights of Spain we are very proud of our Spanish property and we are sure you will love it. new for 2016 part air-con. there is a 3%charge for paypal payment, bank transfers no additional charge

Paul Cattermole purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Paul Cattermole chose Mazarrón

The location of Bolnuevo is ideal for everybody the ease of access or its remoteness from the crowds. The villa is high enough for good views and to catch the breeze, but not too far uphill to walk. One of the things we like is the micro climate and the cooling breeze we tend to get during the night, within a minute of leaving the bungalow you can be climbing the mountain or be on your way to the beach, shops, restaurants,bars which are a mere 10 minutes away Great base for sightseeing areas such as Murcia or Cartagena which are about 40 minutes away by car or 1 hour by coach. Mazzarron is the local port and town which has a new marina where the rich tie up their million pound yachts, there is a new paseo to walk along with lots of shops every type of food you want and beach sports.

What makes this bungalow unique

We enjoy the bungalow as a retreat as we can lock the gates and the walled garden gives lots of privacy.There is a large garden with fruit trees,large patio and a great sized pool. we are never bored and use it as a home not just a holiday home and we don't tend to go out every night but enjoy eating outside with friends over a drink, we do have TV with Sky, & spanish aerial. a DVD player and a CD player. Outside there is a pergola which provides shade and is a relaxing place to enjoy a meal, the built in BBQ is great for outdoor cooking, the porch is a great place for having breakfast or to relax and read a book,whilst the sunroof terrace which houses the Sky dish is a fine place to view the sea on one side and mountain on the other, there is space to sunbathe.There is parking under cover on the driveway, new for 2016 some air conditioning we now accept paypal payment, should you require it we charge additional 3% for this service

Very impressive villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is huge! Loads of space inside and out. Although there were only four of us is was great. It was very hot when we stayed so we were grateful for the ceiling fans and the air con. The outside space was very nice and well equipped. Slight problem with lots of wasps, but that was the time of year and also a lot of mosquitos at night which wasn't great, but no fault of the owners! The villa was very well equipped, the kitchen etc. Lots of towels. Although there isn't much in the town, a few restaurants and a supermarket there were some very nice places to drive to. We had a car for the two weeks we stayed. There is room to park off road and under a sun shelter. Overall the villa was very nice and I would highly recommend. The owners were easy to communicate with and the people they used to hand over the keys was all very easy and hassle free, which is just what you want.

Fantastic villa, ideally situated.

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideally appointed, inside and out, for families or a group of friends alike, and is clean and well maintained. There were 6 of us, but it could comfortably accommodate 8 people. The villa has everything for a quiet, relaxing break, but is also a short walk to a spacious beach with great restaurants and bars. Only a 40 minute drive from Murcia airport also makes the travelling and transfer painless. Steve & Heather were extremely welcoming and helpful and, if needed, are on call for any issues. The owners, Paul and Sue, made the booking very straightforward and couldn't have been more helpful. We would highly recommend the villa and would like to visit again. Chris & Chris

A beautiful, little part of spain

  • 5 of 5

Before we even arrived, we where told to make ourselves at home, which made us feel very comfortable in the property, Our favourite part of the property was the outside area and of course the pool, which was perfect for our party! The house had everything you needed and more, and Paul and sue where always on hand to should you need it.

The town down the hill was quiet, but just what we required, It had everything you might need, a Spa shop, many bars and restaurants all the ones we visited where very friendly and accommodating, if you wanted a little more life the next town Puerto Mazarron which was only €1.15 each on a short bus route, This had more facilities, including a weekly market which was massive and had a range of goods from fresh fruit veg, cheese to clothes bags jewellery etc, we also sampled so restaurants here and again no complaint! I would recommend this property ten times over and I hope to make arrangements to come again, thank you Paul and Sue 😀�

Beautiful villa, helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the villa earlier this month for one week. As a group of 7 (mixed ages including a 9 month old baby) I found the villa to be fully equipped and suitable for all ages.

The villa itself is very spacious - all of the rooms are good sizes and the owners kindly ensured that we had a cot, high chair and push chair at our disposal. The pool area was lovely and well maintained and we had a choice of loungers, BBQs and tables and chairs which were situated in different areas around the villa.

The villa had absolutely everything we required - even board games and DVDs and the owners left plenty of information for us regarding the local area and were easily contacted when we needed advice about the wifi.

The area itself is very nice and quiet and about a 10 minute walk to the beach and local shops, bars and restaurants.

I would recommend hiring a car as the uphill incline from the local shops to the villa proved quite difficult for my dad who suffers from angina and arthritis and the nearest large supermarket and local port were best reached by car, however there is a local bus.

We enjoyed the villa and area so much that we are hoping to return. I would definitely recommend the villa as it was a wonderful home away from home that had absolutely everything we needed for a peaceful family holiday.

Great Villa with everything you need...

  • 4 of 5

My family and I (3 adults and a 9 year old) just had a week at this villa and couldn't fault the place. It had everything you could wish for and more. Great bedrooms, each with a bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and a lounge with games, books and (should you feel the urge - or want to escape the heat - big TV and SKY channels). The outdoor areas are ideal, with a fantastic pool being the hub of activity and loungers, dining area, drinks seating with canopy and much more. The town is a little quiet, with only a few good places to eat and drink, but if you're looking for a villa to hang out in most of the time and to soak up the sun and relax, this is just the place.

Owner's Response: it is lovely to get such kind comments, we hope to provide a home from home and are always trying to improve. Bolnuevo is fairly quiet, the villa is far enough from the bars etc to be relaxing. For more choice there is nearby Puerto Mazarron, with more restaurants, shops, banks and the lovely new marina. The large paseo there is a favourite with Spanish families, especially at weekends.
