A number of low-cost airlines fly direct to Murcia airport from regional UK airports throughout the UK, and the apartment is only a 20 minutes drive when you arrive. All year round flights are also available into Alicante, which is approximately 50 minutes’ drive. But the roads are good and the drive is easy. We can provisionally reserve your holiday dates for up to 24 hours to enable you to book the best flights. We can arrange transfers if you don’t want to hire a car (payable locally). Although you can holiday without a car, hiring one helps to make the most of the area. We use Flamenca Cars for our car hire. With them you know what you are paying when you book with no extras added on at the airport. But cheaper options are available. By hiring a car you can experience much more, including other golf courses in the area, local villages, fiestas, wine tours, the Sierra Espuna, the city of Murcia and the towns of Cartegena and Lorca, the WaterPark and Zoo, organised walking tours, horse-riding, white water rafting, etc. There is so much to see and do within quite short journeys, with something for everyone!
