    How to get there
    Airport: San Javier: 62.1 mi
    Railway: Calasparra (main line to Madrid-Murcia): 12.4 mi
    Fly-and-drive with a range of budget air companies to: Alicante (140km) or San Javier ('Murcia San Javier' or MSJ; 100km). (Easyjet flights to Madrid are the best value of all, and involve a 3/4 hour drive, perhaps with a night in the capital to start or finish, depending on flight times.)
    From the San Javier, follow the MU-30, then the first RM-15 'Autovia del Noroeste' to Cehegin, allowing an hour and a half for the trip. Take first exit, signed 'Cegehin Este,' and follow signs for town centre, stopping outside the Mercadona supermarket on the long straight approach road into town, called the 'Carretera de Murcia.' You'll be met on arrival by our contracted Spanish-speaking helper, Cristi. She'll show you to the house (5 minutes).

If you want to get away from it all and switch off completely, this is the place for you. Very spacious and comfortable villa with good sized pool suitable for swimming/playing. Very helpful directions from the owner beforehand, along with suggestions for eating, walks etc. Views over Cehegin (a quiet town with no tourists in sight) were stunning. La Lonja was a real find for tapas - €40 for four, including wine/drinks. It helps to know a little Spanish, as very few locals speak English. more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 for a stay in January 2012

Spent a very happy New Year here with teenage children and extended family - ideal place for just relaxing or maybe summoning up enough energy for a dip in the pool! Lots of room and stylishly equipped, with everything you could need for a long stay. We enjoyed Cegahin itself very much, really pretty old hill town, and also did a bit of exploring further afield, a trip to the beach and to the hot spring spa baths, along with some shopping in Murcia. I'm sure we will be back!
