On Arrival:

At Condado we will have someone from our property management team meet you with the keys and show you around the apartment, our apartment will be cleaned on your arrival and departure.

We are just a short drive from the towns of Alhama de Murcia, Totana and Lorca, these three beautiful towns border the Sierra de Espuna national park.

Murcia City is 40 minutes away by car and is a beautiful old city, It has very old style buildings like the university and churches, it also has many shops and two El Corte Ingles shopping centres. The city is approx 1200 years old and steeped in history, a must see. During the 3-hour siesta why not pop into the open air Thader shopping centre 10 minutes from the city of Murcia on A7, 30 min away from the apartment.

The area of the Mar Menor ( little sea ) is almost totally separated from the Mediterranean Sea due to the ‘La Manga del Mar Menor’ which means ‘the sleeve of the little sea’. This very small strip of land is about 13 miles long and makes up the lagoon of Mar Menor, a very interesting natural attraction. La Manga is 40 minutes away on the motorway AP7 from the apartment.

Cartaghena city is 30 minutes away on the motorway the AP7 and has a very historic port. The city itself is over 2,000 years old. While the city breakes for siesta you should pop into see the large three storey shopping centre just outside the city on your way to Los Alcazares. Los Alcazares is a large town on the Mar Menor,it has many restaurants and bars which we suggest popping into after visiting Cartahena city.

Almeria is 2 hours away and although Granada is 3 hours away it is well worth a visit for Alhambra Palace alone.

Whatever you decide to do we hope you enjoy your stay in our apartment in Condado de Alhama Golf Resort.
