Alegria, La Azohia, Murcia
La Azohia , situated at the end of the beautiful Mazarron Bay in the south east corner of Spain, is a small fishing village where time has stood still. The bay is south facing and the duplex apartment has stunning unimpeded views from the large roof sun terrace and from the two balconies. There are fish here for which there is no English translation , they don’t export them and they are unknown in England. The bay has no high rise hotels and the sunset from the apartment and from the ‘Aussie Bar’ are just fantastic. We’re told that sunrise is spectacular too but have never been up early enough to experience it! The peninsula of Cabo Tinoso is a short drive from La Azohia and the road to it and the views from it are breathtaking.
The apartment is five years old, is fully air conditioned and has been finished to a very high standard. There are two (double) bedrooms and a sofa bed in the large lounge so can sleep 6 if requested. The kitchen is more than sufficient for all your culinary needs. There is a large roof sun terrace with an awning to enable all day use. It has a large table, chairs and a BBQ There are two communal pools very close to the apartment and a friendly bar which is open all day but does not intrude on the peaceful nature of the area. The beach is a 5 minute walk away and has a gently sloping sea bed to enable safe swimming. There is a lifeguard during the summer season and warning flags.
Puerto de Mazarron is a 20 minute drive away along the coast and has all the shops, bars and reataurants you could need for a perfect holiday. There is an excellent Tourist Information Centre in the town. Across the mountains in the other direction is the much larger city of Cartagena. Shopaholics better steer clear of El Corte Ingles, a sort of combination of Harrods, John Lewis and Selfidges. It is also an extremely interesting historic naval port dating back to pre Roman times.
Access to La Azohia is easy from Murcia (San Javier) Airport and is around 40 minutes drive away. Alicante Airport is another 40 minutes up the coast
