We spent a relaxing two weeks by the pool and exploring Murcia. As a family of four we opted to rent both Fincas, this gives plenty of room. The grounds are well kept and Lemon trees outside the back door where a delight. The location is rural and if you intend to explore a hire car is really a must. If you can tear yourself away from the pool (which is a good size), The coast is about a 25 minute drive offering a variety of beaches. Heading inland there are a variety of quintesential Spanish towns and villages. Alahmra de Murcia offered a great afternoon out and a fantastic range of patisseries offering local specialities. Whilst a trip up towards Calasparra, Mulla and Cieza offers outstanding scenery. The kids loved Qala Aventura, a cave system that offered a 45 minute tour underground. Another must see is Castillo De Lorca (Fortress of the Sun) in Lorca. The castle offers stunning views for miles and a wealth of history (which is helpfully largely translated into English if needed). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Phil, Lyn & Win were great hosts always on hand to help if required. If you are looking to experience rural Spain, in our opinion this is a great place to start.
