Bolig

Beskrivelse af vores byttebolig

My house is the end of a block of four houses. Originally it was the girls' school - next door the mistresses house, then the master's house, then the boys ' school. My house faces SW and is very light and sunny.
Downstairs it is open plan, kitchen, dining, and lounge - with patio doors and patio on 2 sides. There is also a study and a double bedroom and bathroom

Upstairs only covers enough to accommodate a double bedroom with roof lights, and a bathroom.
The views are stunning, with mountains around and hills in front - over the hills is the sea.
I have a well (there is no "piped" water to the village.) The pump in the well needs to be regularly switched on to fill the 2000 li deposit tank. The house pump then delivers water into the house on demand

Omgivelser

Beskrivelse af omegn

This is a renovated old school house situated in a traditional unspoilt Spanish farming village. Almonds and olives are the crops. It is only a 1 ml walk along the rambla, or 3 ml drive to beautiful beaches, La Azohia at the north end of the Bay of Mazarron. All around this bay are lovely and varied beaches - take your pick!

The surrounding hills are perfect for walking.

There are a few foreign residents in the village, most of my neighbours are friendly spanish farmers. There is a bar/restaurant/village Hall just 100m away and the village organises many events to which visitors are always welcome. The bar is always busy at weekends, Livelier and multi- cultural coastal resorts with a variety of bars and restaurants are nearby.

Inland there are mountains, country parks and a number of castles that can be visited on day trips. The one road through the village leads to Cabo Tinoso a remote and deserted but large military cliff top fort built in the 1920's. The english-made guns are still in situ. If you look at the map you get some indication of the breath-taking views when driving to the end of Cabo Tinoso. Once there you can appreciate it's significance in potentially protecting the port of Cartagena, though I don't think the guns were ever fired in anger!

The nearest big town is Cartagena which has a great harbour making it very important from pre-Roman Times. There are several very interesting museums and a model of the first submarine - or the first submarine to return from the depths!

There is a bus stop one and a half miles away. The bus goes to Cartagena where there is a train station. The nearest airport is Corvera (Murcia), less than an hour. Alicante is about 2 hours.

Attraktioner

Vores lokale tips for muligheder, steder at besøge, mens du er i vor bolig

Recently an "Eco tourism" centre has been opened on the village outskirts. The restaurant prides itself on locally sourced produce and
cooking everything on site. Delicious. One can eat more cheaply but not enjoy better quality. To enjoy typical "spanish ambience" spend weekend lunch times in the village cantina - about 100yds away.

Beside the road at La Azohia are many cafes and restaurants where you can sit and enjoy the sea views whilst sipping your favourite beverage.

Great markets, Excellent food, Castles, eg Lorca, Cartagena - Roman remains, naval museums, including the first submarine), Murcia - cathedral, casino, museums (eg Salizillo).
Inland Parks eg Sierra Espuna (which has a 4 day mountain bike track and many marked walks)

Granada with the world famous Alhambra can be visited as a day trip.
Sorry - I couldn't find "links" to many of these but type in their names and info is easy to find
