Details of the Apartment

This bright, modern, spacious (108 square meters) well-equipped apartment is located (map-ref) on the private Hacienda Riquelme golf resort overlooking the 16th hole. It offers you the opportunity to enjoy a great atmosphere and tranquility. The beautiful terrace affords you the opportunity to eat in comfort whilst enjoying the views of the golf course and the lakes.
As the apartment is on the second floor, you will be pleased to know that there are two lifts that provide access from the secured underground garage (and parking space) to all floors of the complex.

The entire resort is built around a par 72 championship course, located between the village of Sucina and the mountains of Sierra del Carrascoy, on Costa Calida. Because it was designed as a low-density development all apartments look out over a vast expanse of open landscaped grounds and golf course including lakes. Even if you don’t play golf, you have the benefit of not having hundreds of apartments crammed into ’as small a space’ as possible. All apartments are arranged to have great open views which means that peace is guaranteed.

Pick up from airport is available if required (extra charges apply, please ask as the price depends from which Airport).
Meet and Greet by English-speaking representative who is on hand to answer any questions (extra charge €15 to be paid when meeting).
Plus if requested a Welcome Pack – (to be paid in euro to the key holder about €10) – it could consist of bread, milk, butter, jams, eggs, cheese, cornflakes, oatmeal, muesli … according to your wishes.
The site has 24-7 onsite security. Visitors are required, on arrival, to register their vehicle and location of stay.

The nearest town/village – Sucina – is only 5 km away, where you will find plenty of restaurants (choice of cuisine varies from Spains, English, Mediterranean and Indian … to mention a few), 2 banks with ATMs, some small shops and a weekly (Monday) local produce market.

The flat is within easy reach of larger, bustling resorts on the Mar Menor which is part of Costa Calida (or warm coast in Spanish), approx. 250km of beautiful coastline that stretches along the Mediterranean within the Province of Murcia. The region is considerably less developed than the Costa Blanca to the north, and is characterised by small, picturesque, traditionally Spanish seaside towns.

Details of the surrounding area:

There are 43 markets within 85km radius of the flat (check “More Info“)

As Hacienda Riquelme is located at the foothills of the mountains, why not drive a 15km
tour up over the mountains towards Murcia use the RM-F56 just outside the complex.
The landscape and the mountains are worth it.
At the other end just take the RM-1 back to the flat or go on to Murcia and explore shopping, museums, zoo…

If it is culture you want, then you could visit Murcia (35km), Catagena (50 Km)
or El Castell de Guadalest (165km).
