Holiday Rental House
Villa Quisqueya comes with a week's free car rental (there's no catch as it's a genuine offer, but please read the details below) so you can choose to explore the popular region around the home - or just use it to get to and from the airport (Murcia or Alicante) and then park it in the carport while you walk or bike around the La Torre resort.
This 2 bed, 2 bath detached villa was built in 2007 on the 5 star La Torre golf resort. In addition to a terrace and a large rooftop solarium to maximise time in the sun, the villa has a secluded rear lawn that is totally fenced or hedged in to ensure children remain secure (gates and fences were added to the front side in December 2014). Premium outside furniture including sun loungers and a table and chairs is provided, along with a gas barbecue....Villa Quisqueya comes with a week's free car rental (there's no catch as it's a genuine offer, but please read the details below) so you can choose to explore the popular region around the home - or just use it to get to and from the airport (Murcia or Alicante) and then park it in the carport while you walk or bike around the La Torre resort.

The closest of the resort's 22 pools is only 3 minutes gentle walk away and its low traffic private roads are ideal for families, cyclists or the elderly, as is the flat location and the secure gated access to the development. For shoppers, 3 major complexes are within 30 minutes of the villa by car, as are the historic city centres of both Cartegena and Murcia for those wanting to see the Spain beyond the beaches, mountains and golf courses.
The villa is located in one of the sunniest and driest parts of Spain, virtually guaranteeing warmth and sunshine almost all year round. With Mar Menor and the Mediterranean less than 20 minutes drive away, the villa has the best of both worlds - a peaceful and quiet location combined with access to all the Costa Calida and the 3000 hours of sunshine it provides each year.
The rental car is included so you can make the most of your stay in Villa Quisqueya. There is parking for 1 vehicle in the integral carport at the front of property, whilst additional parking is available in the parking area 20m from the front door.

Let's now talk about the 5* La Torre Golf Resort in which Villa Quisqueya is located:
Golf - The 18 hole golf course with par 68 has the following specifications:
• 5,354 metres of golf trail
• 3 lakes.
• Natural surroundings in harmony with the area.
• Driving range & Putting green.
• Club, Pro-shop.
• Golf School.
Tennis - There are two tennis courts on the resort. There is a booking system in place but there is no fee for renters of Villa Quisqueya.
There are 22 large communal pools on La Torre (with accompanying childrens pools). The nearest is less than a 3 minute walk away.
In the town centre, a 15 minute walk from the villa, you will find 2 restaurants (a tapas bar that is open all year round and an Italian restaurant that is open during the summer months) plus an Irish Pub & the Golf Clubhouse (bar and a pro golf shop). The town centre is also where the resort supermarket is located and this has a very wide range of goods at very reasonable prices and all of a two week stay's shop could be easily done here. In addition to the usual range of food, the supermarket sells freshly baked bread, croissants and pain-ou-chocolat every day - but you have to be quick as they often sell out by mid-morning!
The resort is beautifully landscaped and dotted around the resort are children's play areas. It is extremely secure, with a perimeter wall, manned access and regular security patrols.
Activities available in the surrounding area include diving courses, boat trips on the Mar Menor, yacht charters, windsurfing, jet skiing, canoeing, orienteering, sailing tuition, hiking, sightseeing trips, deep sea fishing, mountain biking, horse riding, rock climbing.
The area surrounding La Torre
The regional capital - Murcia City - is known as the “Baroque Capital of Spain” for its wealth of fine buildings. It has many up market shops and department stores. There is a magnificent Cathedral, a beautiful monastery, gardens and parks. The region also boats rugged mountains, rolling green fields, golden sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. Murcia enjoys an annual average temperature of 20 degrees C and nearly 3000 hours of sunshine. Within easy driving distance (20-30 minutes) are the waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the Mar Menor, a great salt-water sea lagoon, with its salt marshes, ecosystems, islands and unique flora and fauna. The Costa Cálida (literally 'the warm coast') is the name given to the 155 miles of coast in the Murcia region, which stretches from the natural salt lagoon of the Mar Menor in the east to the fishing town of Águilas in the west. The two seas offer sparkling clear waters, luxuriously long and sandy beaches, and enchanting little bays. With a variety of Blue Flag beaches to choose from on the Costa Cálida, starting just 20 minutes from our villa, you and your family can easily find a day on the
The Mar Menor Area
This area is known as the market garden of Spain. It is predominantly flat, like a bowl flanked by the mountains of the Sierra de Carrascoy (a protected regional park) and the Calblanque regional park and open to the Mar Menor and Mediterranean sea to the West. At the north end of the Mar Menor is the Salinas regional Park which is a wildlife refuge.
The second city of Murcia, Cartagena, is a port city and has been a port since pre-Roman times. The front is a broad promenade with restaurants and bars overlooking the marina and port. There is a good shopping area here and it starts in the Calle Mayor, a pedestrianised street adjacent to the palace near the front. There are Roman remains scattered through the city including a Roman amphitheatre. Several festivals are held here during the year. The most notable of these is a Roman vs Carthaginian fiesta which re-enacts of the battles that took place here in years gone by.

How to get there
Villa Quisqueya is very easily reached from either Alicante (1 hour via A7 or AP7 autopistas) or Murcia (18 minutes via RM19) airports. The network of roads around the development is world class, queue-free (even if high season) and very easy to navigate.Coming from Alicante, there are two routes of almost exactly the same journey time - following the A7 all the way past Murcia City, then onto the A30 dual-carriageway which passes the entrance to La Torre OR taking the A7 South to the AP7 (2 tolls of around EUR3 each) leaving on the RM19 dual-carriageway signposted for Balsicas which gets you to within 5 minutes of the property. Coming from Murcia Airport is even easier as it is almost a straight line for 18 minutes using one short section of the AP7 to get you from the airport access roa...
