Why Nigel Jealous chose Torre-Pacheco
We always (without exception) receive 5 star guest reviews, with many guests returning year on year. We recently in 2017 added a large pergola with retractible awning, which can cover the huge roof terraces outdoor dining area and also an additional sun bathing area. This region of Spain enjoys on average 320 days of sunshine each year! A good selection of safe & clean beaches (Blue Flag) within 5-10 minutes. Easy and cheap to get to with the low cost airlines. We often pop over for long weekends. The new Region de Murcia Airport only 15-20 minutes away, Alicante Airport 50 mins. There are 22 quality golf courses all within a 10 miles. A good selection of restaurants and bars offering great tapas, seafood and steaks. No high rise apartment blocks, no high rise hotels and especially no lager louts. Our penthouse apartment has a stunning roof terrace with 'views to die for'. 20 minutes drive from the historic Cities of Cartagena (with its port) and Murcia (with its river) both are beautiful, with good shopping. This is a very traditional area of Spain.
What makes this Apartment unique
STUNNING VIEWS from the apartment and especially from the ROOF TERRACE & rear balcony! Our luxury penthouse apartment has been furnished and finished to a very high standard with the curtains and many of the soft furnishings bespoke hand made. We used a local interior designer. Its outstanding feature is the 65 sq m. roof terrace (the size of a normal 2 bedroom apartment), which boasts truly stunning views of the Mar Menor lagoon (Little Sea) over the colourful roof tops, La Manga Strip, golf course set around a beautiful large lake, swimming & paddling pool, with spectacular mountain views in the distance. The outside furniture is top designer, with funky lighting! It benefits from all day sunshine. In 2017 we added a large pergola to the roof terrace with a retractible awning, to offer cover to the dining area and additional sun bathing area. It also has a 32 sq m. rear balcony with shaded area (a further retractible awning) over looking the swimming & paddling pools, golf course with lake & stunning mountain views. Our apartment is a gentle 10 minute stroll from the supermarket, bars, restaurant, golf club house & luxury spa. Quiet! yet there is plenty to do, if you have the inclination!

5 minutes drive to the sea, which can be seen across the roof tops from the penthouses large roof terrace. Also views of the swimming pool, and 3 golf holes situated around a beautiful lake. There are mountains in the background. The apartment is beautifully finished and furnished.
First class apartment and service throughout the rental process
Having had a good look around the resort and having stayed in alternative accommodation before, I can safely say this is one of the best properties on the resort. The standard of repair, decoration, included equipment, location, etc etc are all first class. Views from the terrace area are a superb panorama of the golf course and all the way east to the Mar Menor lagoon.
The owner and their local agent were exemplary throughout the booking process, during our stay and following up to ensure we enjoyed our holiday to the fullest.
I would highly recommend this property.
This was our second stay at this lovely apartment. Again, we really found everything to be easy and well organised. Contact with the owners was fantastic and we had everything we needed. The apartment is in a perfect location with great facilities nearby. I would highly recommend a stay here!
We had a lovely holiday here, just home yesterday. This penthouse has fantastic views, very close to the pool, you can view from the balcony, and on the other side lovely views of the villas which looks fabulous lit up at nighttime. The patio areas are massive with awnings on both side for added shade. You really don’t need to leave this apartment as u can sunbathe all day and dine also. We made good use of the supermarket and local restaurants, the food was excellent. And they also do take away. Nigel’s apartment was spotless, had all mod cons and he was available by email for any questions I had whilst there. His instructions of how to get to and enter the property where really straight forward. I would strongly recommend this property and will definitely be back. Nigel kept in touch during our stay and after we came home to make sure we had a great time, really lovely touch and we felt really well looked after.
Thank you Wendy. Comments like yours make of efforts and continued investment in our penthouse apartment well worth while.
We will hopefully look forward to your future return.
Wonderful stay in a great apartment and resort
My wife and I stayed at this wonderful apartment for 12 days around Easter 2018. We loved the apartment and it's spectacular views of the golf course on one side and the villas of Mar Menor on the other side. The location of the apartment i ideal, relatively close to the driving rang and hotel on one side and overlooking the lake and golf course on the other side. The apartment was well equipped and comfortable. We will definitely be back!
