  • On the weekend of May 10 to 12, 10 friends have been staying in house 2. We were looking for a spacious, comfortable, quiet space, and above all an extra spa, yacuzi ... Here we have found everything, well, even more, because we had a float session (I didn't even know it existed until the other day). The hydromassage session was at night, with warm water and views of the stars. The dining room is immense, full of space to move freely, the huge table to eat quietly.

The beds with new super comfortable mattresses, paelleros, pans, car roofing and everything you need. The wood oven and the spectacular barbecue, finally to say that we had a very good weekend in April and thank Pepe again for his treatment and for allowing us to enjoy his rustic holiday home.

  • We were the weekend of September 3 at the haystack house for ten people, the facilities are good, the paddle court more than acceptable price, a good soccer field and the basket. The pool very good and clean. The barbecue area is very helpful. The house in general terms perfect. To put a but, perhaps the environment from the complex does not invite you to take walks through beautiful places, it is more to enjoy the countryside

  • We are a group of students and friends who have been staying in this accommodation for four years for our September holidays. With the simple fact that we repeat year after year, it is clear that the treatment, comfort and facilities are excellent. This year has been more special, since we had only gone for a weekend, but this time we took advantage of the bridge, so we had time to do many more things such as rifle shooting and swimming in the heated pool.

  • Everything was great, the paddle tennis courts, the soccer courts, the heated pool and the accommodations were a blast. The paddle tennis courts could be brushed since they have little sand in one place and a lot in another and I also want to emphasize that the heated pool is like a movie. It is the best rural house in which I have been. The carbine shot has been very interesting and so has the ostrich.

  • For six years now, all the friends of rural tourism have spent a weekend in November, each year we have changed because although they have all been well always, we found some fault, it was far away, in the middle of nowhere, very cold, etc. . But this year we found the perfect one, the one we were all looking for. This accommodation is ideal for our group with children of different ages and adults wanting to have fun.

That does not mean that we will repeat next year because we loved it.

  • Really good. In principle, you cannot ask for much more. I have been doing rural tourism for years and it is very difficult to find accommodation as spacious and as complete as these. The house does not lack detail and as for the kitchenware and its content, neither. The overall quality is quite good. Cleto the owner and his brother are really charming and accommodating to all the questions we ask of them.

  • I have spent 4 days during the San José bridge, with my wife and my two little girls (9 and 4 years old) in one of the houses in Los Pozos. The experience has been very positive and we have really enjoyed our stay. The best of all have been the owners (Luis, his wife and their son). Since the day we arrived, they have been waiting for us to make our stay pleasant, giving us homemade sweets, giving us accurate recommendations for excursions and above all: Luis accompanied us on a beautiful excursion showing us three locations of magnificent cave paintings in the area.

  • We have been spending Easter with the family in this accommodation. Although we spent the day away from the house and it basically served as our base of operations, it must be said that we have found ourselves very comfortable. The house is spacious, comfortable, very clean and with a pleasant aesthetic, which is also appreciated. Despite the unpleasant weather, we have not been cold thanks to the fact that the owners have not skimped on hours of heating operation.

  • We stayed for a weekend in mid-January at this accommodation in Calar de la Santa and everything was perfect. On Saturday we went on a route through the mountains, through the large fountains, and in the afternoon Luis accompanied us to the Rock Paintings. We also ate some crumbs that they brought us to the house and at a very affordable price so as not to bother to eat. And on Sunday when we woke up to the surprise that it was snowing, we really enjoyed ourselves.

  • My husband and I stayed this April weekend in these rustic accommodations and it was great. We traveled with our 13 month old daughter and the owners allowed us to stay in Ruiz 5 even though it would be for two people. We take the travel cot because the baby is small to sleep in a normal bed, but with an older child you could also rent another of the tourist houses, asking the owners before of course, because in the living room there is a sofa bed and a Temporary bed.

  • I stayed in this fantastic rural accommodation complex with 7 more friends last weekend in February. More specifically, we were enjoying house number 2. It is super cozy, in the upper part we had four double rooms, two of them with bathroom and also another bathroom outside for the other two, the beds are very comfortable and there are blankets to combat the chill. It does for Archivel, although it also has very good heating which makes it very warm during the winter season.

  • Many houses meet these characteristics, but no, there is something that differentiates it. In addition to having a swimming pool for when the good weather comes, the complex also has a closed jaccuzi where in winter you can enjoy a magnificent romantic night gazing at the stars since the roof is opened for this purpose, but although this is very good The best of all is the flotarium, which is inside a wooden cabin, and it is a small pool with kilos and kilos of salt that make you float as if you were in the dead sea and you end up disconnecting from everything for 30 minutes.

As for the jacuzzi and the float, it is a delight to comment, at night with the roof open to see the stars, there are no words ... and the float a feeling of relaxation and tranquility that leaves you new, and what to say about Antonio the landlord, showed us the complex in detail and very attentive in everything we needed, a spectacular treatment, without a doubt we will repeat it, because it has been a very satisfactory rural experience, I recommend it to everyone.

We went with children and they have played, jumped, danced and laughed like never before. They give us "the rattle" to return. Maybe rural turimosmo reptiles in February.

As we had the complex fully rented, we were able to have parties and gastronomic days and we did not disturb anyone. Next year we will prepare a musical and costume party. We had a great time.

It was later fragmented into 16 pieces, currently exhibited at the Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales de Madrid. The torre-campanario of Murcia's cathedral proudly owns the title of being the second tallest of Spain, surpassed only by the Giralda, in Sevilla.

Where to sleep in Murcia

If you would like to stay in the city and be close to the main tourist attractions, let us tell you a little bit about the capital's historical center, divided into the 10 areas in which the city was separated already in the Middle-Ages, such as San Andrés, San Antolín, or the San Nicolás one. You will find in all of them a very familiar atmosphere, and you will see people won't hesitate to offer their help with a huge smile on their faces.

Amongst the more picturesque towns near the city, we recommend visiting Caravaca de la Cruz, right under the Basílica-Santuario de la Vera Cruz, or Yecla a place of a longtime wine-making tradition, Lorca with some of the most beautiful and impressive monuments in the whole region, the fishing town of Cabo de Palos and its crystal-clear waters, or otros pueblos con encanto de Murcia.

When talking about Murcia, one cannot forget to mention its beaches as there is up to 192 of them in the region, 21 out of which are distinguished as Blue Flag beaches. The large sand extensions contrast with the smaller, more intimate bays, which means that you will find here beaches to everyone's liking.

Santa María cathedral is the city's most representative monument. After you visit it, you will discover in its surroundings the historical center, filled with historical monuments and a large number of gardens and parks, amongst which you will find the garden of Floridablanca or the one of la Seda.

Las Sierras de Carche y Espuña, the natural space of Salinas y Arenales de San Pedro, or the national reserve of Cabo Cope y Puntas de Calnegre are some of the spaces of high natural value considered protected regional reserves.

The tourist offer here is complemented with the destinations in the interior of the province, the most popular of which are Caravaca de la Cruz, Lorca and Cartagena, the latter being home to the roman theatre of Cartagena, built between 5 and 1 B.C.

What to eat

What to eat in Murcia

Murcia's close proximity to the sea is reflected in its local cuisine that uses fish, specially salted fish, as the main ingredient for most of its dishes. The Menor sea provides with several local fish and seafood varieties, amongst which are the local 'langostino', and the 'mújol' (grey mullet).

Murcia's vegetable produce includes many of the ingredients that are used in the typical 'ensalada murciana' (also known as 'moje'), or in other local dishes such as the 'potaje' or the 'zarandollo' an egg and courgette scramble. One of the most popular local desserts that we recommend is the 'paparajote' elaborated with lemon tree leaves.

You should also know that the regional wines here are of international reputation, with three different PDO designations in the province: Yecla, la de Bullas, y la de Jumilla.
