About Peggy Lethem
My name is Peggy and I am married to John who is a GP in York. I was a nurse and we have been happily married for 26 years. We have been extremely lucky to have 2 fabulous children that we love and have huge respect for. We are a hard working family and have strived to live with high standards and values. Our interests include walking, travel, reading, architecture, photography, good food and dining out. All of which can be satisfied here in Spain. Our friends and family are important to us, and having the villa has enabled us to spend quality time together. We have a large extended family and this villa is perfect for entertaining and being able to relax in the sun with the people who mean the most to us. A perfect place for entertaining, exploring and relaxing holidays in the sun.
Peggy Lethem purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Peggy Lethem chose Río Mula
It was love at first sight. We arrived at Campos de Murcia and just loved the views of the mountains. It was like looking at a picture that consistently changed. It was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. We wanted to have a big Villa with a large garden and a pool where you could get away from the rat race with family and friends. This area is amazing, there are so many places to visit. We are still finding new places to go to. With Murcia City (designer shops and boutiques) Hundreds of beaches including the Mar Manor. Lovely villages like Mula, Lorca to visit. Local markets, fabulous fresh fish, meat, vegetables and fruit what more could you really wish for? Ah yes the weather! Well that's good too with more than 300 days of sunshine. What will you do? Swim, relax, BBQ or?,,,
What makes this Villa unique
What we really love about our villa is the quality and comfort that we are able to provide ourselves. The Villa is spacious and so there are plenty places to find somewhere quite to sit and relax even when there are 8 of us. Everything about the villa has been designed to ensure comfort and luxury, with attention to detail. We have invested in quality furniture which is of a modern contemporary design, with Lloyd loom dining chairs on the outside terrace, Travertine table to seat 8, 2 x large sofa's in the shade to relax and unwind while the children are swimming in the pool. The enclosed garden is landscaped with bougainvillea, jasmine, fruit trees, flowers, and grape vines. It is a wonderful Villa and garden and we hope you will love it too.

A very good holiday, the Villa was spot less, huge, & very well equipped. Peggy the owner was excellent to deal with and the Villa supposed our expectations. We would recommend it to anyone, and if we return to the region we will contact Peggy to see if the Villa is available.
Thank you very much for your lovely words. We are delighted you enjoyed your holiday. You were the perfect family to be staying in our villa. We appreciated the time and money replacing the lilo's, that split. We know they don't last, but wouldn't expect you to replace them. I hope you do come back to the region, Murcia is such an interesting area to visit and is great out of season.
Best wishes to you and your lovely family.
A lovely villa in a beautiful rural setting in the wonderful area of Murica, Spain.
We went as a group of 6 (family of four plus 2) and the villa was fantastic. The layout is great and gives both privacy when required and communal spaces. The villa is in a small and exclusive estate which is very quiet and the local town has a wonderful bar/restaurant (El Paseo) and a local supermarket within 2 miles drive. We ventured out quite a lot to the beaches (45mins to 1 hour) drive away and also some of the more touristy things such as the water parks etc.
We would definitely return to the villa.
Thank you for your review of our Villa Cassablanca. We are delighted to hear you loved the villa and we will look forward to welcoming you again.
The villa was immaculate inside and out. The pool area was safe and we enjoyed the table tennis. Excellent venue for our family holiday. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. The villa is ideal for a relaxing holiday in 5 star luxury.
Family summer holiday
This was a family holiday to celebrate our 60th birthdays with our family all together for two weeks (six adults and three grandchildren) The villa was clean and well set out with all the appliances we needed and the TV and x box in one of the bedrooms soon became the two older boys bedroom, The large swimming pool and outdoor Barbeque and Bar area was well used and there were plenty of places to enjoy meals and just relax in the evening with a nice glass of wine, there were some fantastic mountain views and gorgeous sunsets, Peggy was very helpful when booking our holiday and allowed my brother who lives in Spain to join us for a barbeque one day, I would definitely recommend this villa to my family and friends, We visited to local shops and bars which had most thing you would need for an enjoyable holiday
Thank you for your review. It's lovely to get feed back about your holiday and to know you would recommend our villa to your friends and family. I hope you will come back again for another holiday.
The perfect villa!
This was our 4th stay at this villa in 7 years which is testament to how much we love it as a family getaway! Even though the kids have grown (12 & 16) they wanted to come back for half term, as they know we have a great time at the villa together. There is so much space and places just to sit,chat and relax, with the pool and table tennis table the centre for family competitions!
The new massive flat screen TV in the living area was a bonus this time around and with excellent WiFi, the kids can show their friends what they are missing on Instagram and Facebook.
At the end of October the weather was surprisingly warm and we were able to sit by the pool and swim every day.
We even ventured out to Cartegna this time which was a pleasant surprise and walked along the marina and visited the maritime museum to brush up on our Spanish Armada knowledge!
The new shopping a Centre only 20 mins away was also a hit too.
However, the best thing about villa Casablanca is the peace, tranquility and luxury which is second to none. Would always recommend anybody to stay here as long as does not clash with us!
We are really pleased to see you have enjoyed your holiday in our villa. We strive to offer a high quality villa, with all the essentials required for a relaxing comfortable stay. We are delighted you are coming back again next year.
