Condo/Apartment
This marvellous apartment is located in the old fishing village Puerto de Mazarron on the Costa Calida (the warm coast) in the south east corner of Spain. The apartment is 75 square meters with two bedrooms for four people, living room with dining table, large open kitchen with all equipment and a bathroom with shower and a tub. There is one smaller terrass with morning sun and one larger with day and evening sun. The apartment is on the second floor but there is no elevator. A carport is included and we recommend to rent a car because there are very much in the surroundings to be explored. Sheets and towels are included but not beach towels. The community pool has not been in use for many years but from this summer 2018, the renovation is complete and the pool in full use - see picture. ...This marvellous apartment is located in the old fishing village Puerto de Mazarron on the Costa Calida (the warm coast) in the south east corner of Spain.

The community pool has not been in use for many years but from this summer 2018, the renovation is complete and the pool in full use - see picture. Puerto de Mazarron of today is a modern small city with everything you could need. Cartaghena – the capitol of the old Chartagenians on the Iberian peninsula – is 20 minutes away by car. The capitol of the region, Murcia, is less than one hour away. There are two airports, Murcia/San Javier within one hour by car and Alicante, 1½ hour. The little village La Azohia a couple of miles from Puerto is a well known diving paradise, rated as one of the world's five best. Within 40-50 minutes driving you reach more than six excellent golf courses. More
