Location

La Magdalena is a tiny village in Murcia. The village is surrounded by almond groves and mountains; the closest range of mountains, the Sierra Espuna is a 45 minutes drive and is a stunning nature reserve. Twenty five minutes from the village is the port of Mazarron, forty minutes to the famous La Manga strip and the Mar Menor where people go to bathe in the salt lakes, with its many healing benefits. Forty five minutes from the Cathedral City of Murcia, the capital. In this region you will also find some of the best golf courses around. Walking and cycling trails are abundant and protected beaches, here the typical Spanish countryside with its sleepy villages is seemingly behind modern times. The nearest beach of El Portus is just 15 minutes drive away.

Cartagena which has a beautiful port, where the cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean stop off every Wednesday. Cartagena is not a tourist area and has many typical Spanish cultural places of interest to visit. Good restaurants, museums and a great shopping centre.
