Get Some Winter Sun! Escape to Murcia – dubbed the “Arizona” of Spain

After the fun of the Holiday Season and New Year, the winter months can seem rather dull. Why not plan ahead and take a trip to a sunnier spot? Why not think about an amazing trip to Spain this Winter – or even further ahead to Spring or Summer? Here’s an opportunity to rent a private 2-bedroom apartment overlooking the golf course in the gated community of the 5-Star InterContinental Mar Menor Golf and Resort.

Mar Menor Golf and Resort Spa

This beautiful golf community is located in the undiscovered region of Murcia. This apartment features a 1st floor apartment with 2-bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, queen sized bed with “marshmallow” topper in the master en suite bedroom. The main terrace overlooks the 12th hole of the 18–hole Jack Nicklaus design golf course with far reaching views of the local town of Torre Pacheco and the foothills leading to Murcia in the distance – makes for gorgeous sunsets. The smaller terrace is nestled amidst banana plants and palm trees – a great spot for your morning coffee. There’s an amazing residents’ pool adjacent to the golf course (open from April – October) and large grassy areas in front and back to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. The apartment features such amenities as a 3D TV, internet cable TV, internet (both at an additional cost) a separate fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, fridge/freezer and washer and dryer.
