- english, french
About Andrew Lubbock
We live in the Scottish Borders in a quiet rural area and have been letting villas for 20 years. We stay abroad in the off season when the Scottish weather is gloomy so that we fit out the villa with all the necessary equipment that anyone including ourselves would require as a second home, including broadband internet connection etc. We also use very good local villa management services so that handing over keys, inventories and welcome packs are on hand. Also in case of emergencies they can help locally at hand with the knowledge and bilingual language efficiency skills that can deal with the sort of problems that car accidents, thefts, loss of passports, hospitals and police may occasion, which can become a nightmare if this sort of help is not available.
Andrew Lubbock purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Andrew Lubbock chose Fuente Álamo de Murcia
When it comes to ticking boxes our villa has it all that one could wish. The airport is within 40 mins drive, the local supermarket 6 mins, the golf club restaurant and bar 5mins the beach and La Manga 40 mins. The new Sheraton Hotel and Spa with superb facilities is also only six minutes away. The villa is located in a very quiet cul de sac. The house sits in it's own large garden looking onto the fairway and 13th tee with only the mountains beyond. The sun is guaranteed 300 days in the year and the sunsets are stunning. the garden has Bougainvillea olive trees and exotic palms. There are four bedrooms, 2 en-suite with enough room for eight adults to wine and dine in the conservatory area or huge patio overlooking the pool. We use the petanque pitch and the bicycles for a bit of fun and exercise.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is an Arrecife 1 design, it is all on the ground floor so that it is more wheel chair friendly than any other villa at Hacienda. It has the largest open plan living area and patio of all villas at Hacienda, with a gorgeous internal courtyard filled with exotic plants providing a restful sheltered cloister from the midday sun.

Maison agréable en famille
Nous avons passé 3 semaines très sympathiques dans cette maison. La grande piscine nous a été très profitable. A proximité de Murcia et de Cartagena dont les visites du centre historique sont très intéressantes. L'hacienda del Álamo est un complexe immobilier fait pour les vacances. Malheureusement il y a peu d'activité à proximité mise à part le golf. Les terrains de tennis et de football difficilement praticables avec des températures de plus de 30 degrés. Nous avons pu profiter des installations de l'hôtel, piscine, soin du corps moyennant finances. Pour les plages, nous avons essayé celle de La Manga, trop bétonné à notre goût et quelques plages plus familiales et fréquentées par des espagnols, ces dernières étaient vraiment sympa.
Dans l'ensemble, notre séjour s'est bien passé.
It is always a delight to have guests returning year after year and undoubtedly the Hacienda del Alamo resort is getting better and better. The Hotel and Spa, more restaurants, bars and boutiques add another dimension to what was primarily a golf resort. More diverse activities are being added every year but 2018 summer was very hot for tennis etc. However our fully air conditioned villa is a cool relief and the pool is always a delight.
