About Caroline Davies
Our villa is owned by 2 families, the Davies and the Howlands. We bought it as an investment and a second home in 2007. We don't get to spend nearly as much time there as we would like, but find it one of the most relaxing places to be when we are there. We have an English couple who look after the villa for us, Sue and Terry Brooks, who live on Phase 2 of the resort. They are great at organising hire cars or lifts to and from the airport or suggesting a local restaurant. We like to be as flexible as possible with our rentals, as we appreciate that flight costs vary considerably, depending on your departure/return dates. We've put lots of photos on the website, but if you need any more, please ask. We hope that if you do choose our villa for your holiday, you enjoy it as much as we do!
Caroline Davies purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Caroline Davies chose Fuente Álamo de Murcia
We looked at several resorts in the area and Hacienda del Alamo is by far the nicest in many ways. It is beautifully landscaped and each property has plenty of outside space. The surrounding area is very rural and peaceful. The coast is just a short drive and the beaches are beautiful - the beach at Los Alcazares is ideal for small children as the sea is very warm and shallow and Mazarron has lots of restaurants overlooking the beach.
What makes this Villa unique
The property is within walking distance of the commercial centre and cycling distance of the Clubhouse. Although the pool is shared, our villa is right opposite the pool, so you can easily sit on the private patio but still supervise the children.

Great villa on a fantastic resort
What a great villa on a fantastic resort and Caroline the owner was a pleasure to deal with very quick to reply to every question.
The villa itself we felt is a little tired with some areas in need of a lick of paint, we couldn’t get the tv to work (not that we were in to watch it to much) also the oven didn’t work (again not that we tried to use that much either) and we felt a brick built bbq would be a good addition to the villa as the portable one didn’t have a shelf with it.
All that said the location is great a few steps to the pool and a 5 min stroll to the Spaniard inn for food and drinks, the WiFi at the villa is very strong throughout the villa, as for the golf course well that’s fantastic and a real challenge for any level golfer.
All in all a very good choice should you want to stay on this resort.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, I really appreciate it.
Thank you also for highlighting a few things which we will certainly attend to - we had already planned to do some maintenance over the winter months and will make sure these things are on the list. As you say Paul, you didn’t necessary go there to watch tv but when it’s advertised as part of the facilities, it should be available and working properly!
Fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Although not a great deal to do in the complex the pool was just outside of he villa & kids loved it. A hire car is essential for shopping & sight seeing. We have stopped in the Alhama area over the last four years, so were familiar with places to visit. Caroline was helpful & the booking was smooth & easy. Thank you Caroline!
Peace and Tranquility - Away from it All
We chose this Villa primarily for its Peaceful rural location and were not disappointed. 30 minutes to the coast at Mazzarron or Cartagena and 40 minutes to Murcia City.
The villa itself is exactly as advertised and the pictures accurately depict it, it’s typical Spanish Style and totally functional. The patio gets the sun all day, but also has a covered area to take refuge from the sun.
As advertised the villa shares a communal pool, however it was virtually our private pool as a number of other villas were empty and others have Spanish families who were out to work.
For a change of scenery the friendly Spaniard is literally round the corner or a 5 minutes drive into town gives you a choice of restaurants of which Oso Blanco Is my recommendation.
All communication was handled efficiently, key collection and drop off simple.
So if you want to unwind, escape for a while and not be burdened by crowds or pestered by the Looky Looky men, this is ideal.
Ideally positioned, with all the necessary comforts
Lovely pool area, well positioned for Murcia and Cartagena
Beautiful villa, in a beautiful area
We had a wonderful time at the villa and fuente Alamo it's self 6 of us went all adults as a big family holiday and we all enjoyed it, we had our own car as drove to Spain which was an experience it's worth having a car or hiring one, we went on many days out to Cartagena, Murcia, LA manga, puerto mazzoron, bendidorn and much more we spent a few evening at the spainnard inn that was a 5minute walk down the road which was very nice and they were very welcoming, I'd recommend staying here to anyone and I'd definitely go back in the future. The villa was beautiful beyond expectations.
Delighted to hear that you had such a good time! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, it is much appreciated.
We had a great week at this villa. We travelled as a family with 3 children, 1 older teen and 2 under 5's. As such we really didn't seek out nightlife but wanted somewhere safe and relaxing, with a nearby place to take advantage of having a live-in babysitter!
The resort remains extremely quiet and our neighbours appeared to be residents rather than holidaymakers.
The villa itself is enclosed within lockable gates, which was perfect for our young family. The access to the shared pool is mere steps from the patio area, again through a locked gate. Should you have older children it would be perfect to sit on the loungers within the garden area and supervise your children in the pool.
The villa itself is spacious, with 3 separate bathrooms, and the air conditioning a welcome relief from the hot sun. The TV in the villa shows most Freeview UK channels, and although no internet connection, we all managed to get great 4G signal and wifi was free at the nearby bar/restaurant.
The resort is huge and whilst the nearest bar/restaurant (The Spaniard Inn) and children's playground was close by, we did drive often and would really recommend car hire. There is no supermarket on site, the nearest being in Fuente Alamo and we did find that we really needed a good half an hour in the car to get to any major towns/cities. The dual carriageways/motorways are fantastic and well signed, we easily found our way to Murcia, Cartagena, Los Alcazares and La Manga.
We did find it difficult initially to get to the villa, the coordinates through Google Maps seem to want to bring you through a private road, after our initial misadventure, we found it easier to head on to the RM-F2 and leave at the exit for Fuente Alamo Oeste (Exit 21), where Hacienda del Alamo was signposted.
All communication with Caroline was prompt and efficient, as was the payment process. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa again for those wanting a peaceful retreat in the sun!
Thanks so much for your review and for your welcome recommendation! I will certainly take on board your comments about the directions and will also make sure there is a dustpan and brush and broom indoors.
