We can't deny the villa is beautiful and I won't hesitate to recommend it to my friends and work colleagues and we certainly look forward to visiting casa craven in the future. Once again Don thank you for your thoughtfulness and care leading up to our holiday you made us feel very special and welcome I'll willingly give you a 6*+
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Craven, the house was perfect and the area was lovely and quiet. It was nice to be in a Spanish town that was not too commercial. The kids had a great time, enjoyed the pool, Jacuzzi and the beach.
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, your home is extremely well equipped and a very comfortable base. We ate at the place you recommended to us on the front of the harbour ( Cafe Bocateria) and we had a take away paella one night from the bar at the end of the road. We also tried lots of other places to eat and had a few barbeques. Everything represented excellent value for money and the local people were very friendly.
I can honestly say we didn't find there was anything missing from our stay, Casa Craven does represent excellent value for money. The pool and jacuzzi were well cleaned and maintained, we found some lovely beaches and liked the fact that it is still quite Spanish. I will certainly recommend it to others."
“Just a note to say what a wonderful villa, it really felt like a home, the residential location, views and facilities really made it perfect for us.”
“With regards to the villa, wow! it is very very nice, you are lucky to have such a great location with great balcony sea views. We felt at home within a few hours and having stayed at some pretty spectacular villas I can honestly say that yours represented amazing value for money. If I get the chance I will recommend it to anyone I can.”
“You should change your photos on the internet, the house Is so much nicer than it appears to be on the net.

The Costa Calida (Warm Coast), is on the south-east Iberian coast, between the larger more developed Costa's Blanca and Del Sol. it has 250Km of beaches, beautiful countryside, several mountain area including National Parks, which, combine to provide a wonderful year-round holiday destination. There are over 300 days of sunshine a year, with temperatures averaging 32C degrees in summer and 18C degrees in winter. The warm sea temperature rarely falls below 16C degrees.
In some parts, the mountains go right down to the sea, providing breathtaking panoramas but also forming small, often sandy and secluded coves.
There are numerous beaches, some shingle, some rocky but many are sandy including the immense beaches near the port, Bahía and Bolnuevo.
The sea is usually around 5º warmer due to the 'micro climate' that Mazarrón enjoys. There are two reasons for this. One is, the mountain ranges, which surround us and secondly, the cooler water currents, which enter the Mediterranean from the Atlantic are deflected away from our coastline, leaving the water temperature unaffected and actually permitting diving all year round. The water is usually clear and the depth of visibility in many places is often around 25 - 30 metres.
Rocky outcrops provide incredible underwater scenery and apart from diving, snorkelling is extremely popular as well.
The area is less developed than some areas of Spain and therefore retains more elements of the traditional Spanish way of life.
It is an area steeped in history. The capital city of the region, Murcia, was founded in AD841.
Mazarron, with it's nearby Puerto de Mazarron, is a traditional Spanish town which retains a Spanish flavour and heritage. Whilst there are plentiful and varied restaurants, bars and cafes, particularly in the Puerto, it is not somewhere for someone looking for a hectic nightlife. It attracts large numbers of Spaniards during the high summer for their holidays, who prefer the area to the more widely known areas of Spain.
Puerto de Mazarron, is a year-round fishing port, and has a modern marina, completed in 2008. It’s completion was delayed by the discovery of Roman artefacts. Local dining places offer fresh locally caught fish. It is also well served by shops, and like other local towns is well endowed with shoe shops, as my wife will testify. Whilst there are small supermarkets in the Puerto, such as Arbol, larger ones are to be found on the edge of the Puerto on the main road leading to Mazarron.
Markets are plentiful and frequent. There are market-days in Mazarron, together with those in neighbouring Totana and Lorca.
Within the Puerto, the El Arbol supermarket can cater for most basic needs, along with the fresh produce covered market, Plaza de Abastos, or the local Sunday market.
You’ll now find 3 new larger supermarkets at the entry to the Puerto from the main road leading from Mazarron. These are just over 5 minute's drive from our home:
"Upper" open 7 days pw, 9am to 9pm, and 9am to 2pm Sundays.
"Mercadonna" & "Lidl" open 6 days pw, normally 9am to 9pm. “Lidl” often opens on Sundays as well during the summer.
"El Arbol" in the Puerto also opens 7 days pw, typically 9am to 9pm except on Sundays 9am to 2pm.
Smaller "Dia" supermarkets are typically open 7 days pw, but normally shut for siesta and normally close at 2pm on Sundays.
Cartagena, has 2 large hypermarkets, "Eroski" and "Carrefour". Typically open 6 days pw, and frequently (irregularly) open on Sundays.
Please take note that Bank Holidays are far more frequent than in the UK, and supermarkets will often be closed as well, particularly if the holiday is religious.
Cartagena, about a 30-minute drive away, is another historic(dating back to the Romans) town and old naval base. It combines, history and architecture with lovely waterfront promenades, and excellent shopping facilities catering for all tastes and budgets. It has a great number of restaurants, many of which are traditional Spanish, but also caters for all tastes and cuisines. . Large supermarkets, such as Eroski and Carrefour, are to be found in Cartagena.
Spain is rightly renowned for it's agriculture, fruit, leather and shoes.
There are numerous small villages, which one can find and explore, but Totana and Lorca are especially interesting, benefiting from history (dating back to the Romans), local cuisines, shops and markets. . A lesser known fact is that Spain still has a thriving traditional children’s industry, and many of these dedicated shops offer a beautiful alternative to the modern trend to dress children as miniature teenagers.
Spain has a large number of festivals, and details of local ones for Mazarron can be found with this link:
