Maria's reviewsAs a host (3)
“What an amazing holiday we had here! Maria was equally as amazing. The great communication, the truly fantastic property and even the directions from the airport. all faultless. The property is so nice and very well equipped, the bedrooms are really comfy and perfect for what we needed. The kitchen was really well equipped and helped us cook some lovely meals. we even tried a few home grown olives! The pool was a revelation having never been in a salt water one before, such a refreshing change from chlorine and crystal clear. It was 25C everyday mid May which was perfect for us, we barely saw a cloud. Cartagena was a lovely city with some great shops and restaurants. Our favourite beach was Playa de bolnuevo (i think), we hired a car and went to several but this one was really nice. We enjoyed spotting Hoopoe birds from the patio and even spotted a golden eagle! The stars were amazing too. We had such a great holiday here and our kids absolutely loved it! huge thank you to Maria, an incredible host. ”
“We stayed in Finca Magdalena for a week in February 2019 - so very much out of season. The owners were there to greet us when we arrived and were very welcoming, and provided us with comprehensive information about the house and area. The property is pretty much exactly what we were expecting, so the description must have been accurate (although I haven't checked the details after the trip). The house has 2 double bedrooms and 2 twin rooms (one of the twin rooms being reached through the other, not an issue for us). There are 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and a sitting room. Outside there is a terrace (too cold to eat outside in the evening when we were there), swimming pool, and garden. The house is comfortable, with a well equipped kitchen, everything worked, and it was clean when we arrived. The garden is beautifully maintained. We only used the pool once, because of the temperature, but if we were going when it is warmer the fact that it is a salt water pool would be a big plus - they are just so much pleasanter to use, and don't aggravate skin conditions such as eczema. There is a table tennis table. The setting is quiet, with views over the surrounding hills, and it is possible to go for walks or running straight from the house. The surrounding area is largely farmland and hills, and one upside of being there out of season was that the trees were in blossom. We found plenty enough to do for the week within easy driving distance. We spent a day at Cartegena, visited the cliff-top fort near La Azohia (more interesting than expected), and had a lovely day's walking up a dry river the other side of La Azohia. The Antipodas restaurant at La Azohia was an excellent recommendation by the house owners. We went twice to the beach along the coast in the nature reserve at Calblanque as it was so lovely. The sea was just warm enough to swim, although none of us stayed in the water for very long. However at that time of year the beach clearly isn't everyone's idea of a good time, and there weren't many other people about! Getting to this beach also means driving along a narrow dirt road.”
Where is it?
Rural countryside but close to bars, restaurants and shops. Beautiful location, easily accessible from the road. Stunning beaches within 25 minute drive. Costa Calida and Mar Menor (La Manga) all close by. Walking, cycling routes also on doorstep as are a multitude of golf courses. Historic city and port of Cartagena about 15 minutes away. Cartagena hosts the famous San Javier Jazz Festival in July with lots of fiestas and events throughout the year.
The stunning beach of La Azohia with fabulous views is reached through scenic countryside. Our favourite restaurant has amazing views overlooking the sea.
The famous city of Granada and the Alhambra is a 3 hour drive.
