Yes indeed, splendid views... Nothing wrong with the outside. But, when you rent an apartment for the requested price you may at least expect everything available will work properly. Apart from little inconveniences like broken lightbulbs, sticky cushions for the deck chairs, a mattress which...More

About the neighbourhood
Calabardina is a small seaside Spanish resort which is open all year round, though of course quieter in the Winter months. The local amenities include various boutique hotels, beach-side bars, restaurants, cafes and a hairdressing and beauty salon. There is a small family run supermarket open all year round, and a second family run supermarket open for the Summer months. There is a bus service linking Calabardina to the larger town of Aguilas, however a car is recommended. Calabardina is situated at the foot of the Cabo Cope mountain and at the edge of the Cabo Cope Parque National, which is ideal for hiking/walking with its spectacular views over the Costa Calida north to the town of Mazarron and south to the town of Mojacar. Calabardina has two large beaches, one is the sheltered sandy Calabardina cove, ideal for the entire family, whilst the Playa de la Cola is a longer and less sheltered beach located on the way into Calabardina. There is also an additional very small sandy cove within a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. On the outskirts of the town, there is a small beach which is ideal for anyone who likes to snorkel and Calabardina has two diving schools which cater for all levels of expertise. Other activities available include water sports, walking, hiking, beach fishing as well as exploring the coast and inland amenities. Several golf courses are also within easy reach by car (e.g.as mentioned previously, Lorca Resort Golf near Aguilas, Aguilon Golf near San Juan de Los Terreros, Desert Springs Golf in Almanzora and Hacienda Del Alamo in Fuente Alamo amongst others). This part of Spain is one of the last undeveloped tourist destinations. You will be intrigued and captivated ! The nearest town to Calabardina is Aguilas (approximately a 10 minute drive). This town is typically Spanish. A very large weekly outdoor market is held on Saturdays on the outskirts of the town, selling local fresh produce, clothes, shoes, bric-a-brac etc. Aguilas itself is served by a large selection of shops, which cater for all age groups, numerous hotels, seaside cafes, bars and restaurants. There is also a relatively new and large shopping mall (Aguilas Plaza) on the outskirts of Aguilas, which incorporates a multi screen cinema and food hall. The town of Aguilas itself has two very large and picturesque sandy beaches which cater for the entire family. The North and South beaches of Aguilas are separated by the imposing hillside coastal castle (floodlit at night) and there is a lovely promenade walk (circa 1.5 kms) which one can take from the centre of the town to the well appointed Hotel Puerto Juan Montiel Spa & Base Nautica (formerly the Hotel Don Juan), for a well deserved café con leche or a chilled cerveza. Aguilas is also served by its own bus & train station, which itself serves all major destinations throughout Spain. The medieval town of Lorca can be reached in 30 mins by car, Murcia city in 60 minutes and the famous port city of Cartagena in 50 minutes (Cartegena has been a key port since the time of the Roman Empire). As mentioned previously, there are several golf courses within easy reach by car - Lorca Resort Golf is a 20 minute drive from the apartment, Aguilon Golf near San Juan de Los Terreros is a 25 minute drive door to door, while Desert Springs Golf Course is approx 25 kms by car. The area surrounding Aguilas is agricultural, with no major industry. The air is therefore fresh and clean and Lemon, Orange and Almond trees abound as well as all types of vegetables. The climate is temperate all year round which is helped in this regard by the surrounding mountains and the sea. Aguilas itself holds an annual Carnival in February of each year prior to Easter, which is noted as being one of the best in Spain.
