Costa Calida Villas

With a name that translates as “warm coast”, it would be difficult to resist this idyllic holiday destination.  When you stay at the villas in Costa Calida you will be spending your holiday in a most beautiful and historical coastal region.  Costa Calida is located in Murcia in the south east corner of the Iberian Peninsula.  The province’s most temperate climate allows you to partake in many outdoor activities when you stay at a villa in Costa Calida.  The area of La Manga is a popular stretch of land hosting a wide range of sports in the region where tourists and locals alike enjoy activities such as golf, tennis and water sports.   It is the partitioning land of La Manga that has created what is believed to be Europe’s largest salt-water Lagoon, the Mar Menor, whose waters are said to possess healing attributes.  This area is therefore a much visited health spa town with many places for you to relax and allow yourself to be pampered.

The southern area of the Costa Calida has villas that are set amongst the most stunning of backdrops.  The hilltop town of Mojacar is one such town and has meandering cobbled streets threaded around historical buildings.  The beach façade is a mass of nocturnal celebration with flamenco shows and lively entertainment in the bars and clubs.  The province of Murcia has an incredible 170km of coastline which is a collection of coves, cliffs and sandy shores.  The natural aspects of the coast are decorated with colourful displays of flora and fauna adding to the stunning aesthetics of Costa Calida and its villas.  These gloriously comfortable villas are situated amongst such beauty, some with extensive gardens and outdoor dining areas. 

For those who are interested in the history and culture of the town, you may wish to visit the museums and galleries of the area, which give an interesting insight into Costa Calida’s history and creativity.   When staying at the Costa Calida villas, perhaps venture to Museum Salzillo, which exhibits over 500 sculptures and paintings by Francisco Salzillo.  Tourists who appreciate modern art, may wish to visit the Museum Ramn Gaya. Another interesting site of history is the Archaeology Museum in Muria which has both permanent and temporary displays of the most extensive collections of artefacts in Spain. 

The churches and cathedrals of Spain house stunning religious art and the Cathedral de Santa Maria, with its impressive exterior, possesses an equally dramatic interior.  The amalgamation of a Gothic core and Baroque façade makes for an intriguing place to visit when you stay at one of the Costa Calida villas.  Inside the cathedral you will find the notable Cappilla de los Velez, a funeral chapel established in 1507 at the request of a local affluent family.  An excursion to the cathedral from a villa in Costa Calida is an exceptional day out for those keen to discover more about local history and who enjoy the aesthetics of religious art.

The villas in Costa Calida are in close proximity to many fine restaurants and bars in the area.  You can savour traditional tapas or delicious contemporary cuisine amongst excellent scenery.  Sample succulent seafood and fresh seasonal vegetables at beach side eateries or sit snugly in a cosy traditional restaurant situated in one of the streets of the Old Town.  Why not use the fully equipped kitchen at a Costa Calida villa to produce dishes of the areas with ingredients from the local markets if you are interested in imitating the traditional dishes of the region?   Many of the Costa Calida villas also have al fresco dining areas, where you can enjoy private grounds and dine in the privacy of your own picturesque accommodation.  After satiating your appetite, perhaps peruse the boutiques and shops of the area.

Staying at Costa Calida villas provides many opportunities to participate in invigorating activities and the ideal way to view the surrounding countryside is upon horseback or by bicycle.  Murcia is fortunate to have the lush nature park, Sierra de Espuña, which is a mass of pine forests, mountain peaks and streams.  This is an ideal terrain for hiking enthusiasts or even those who would prefer to explore the verdant landscapes at a leisurely pace.  If amusement parks are more to your liking you can visit one of the water parks within easy travelling distance from the Costa Calida villas.  These exciting theme parks are abundant in slides, rides and amusements for people of all ages.
