The city of Murcia is a vibrant university town and the 7th largest city in Spain.

Your holiday accommodation in Murcia will provide a similar experience to couchsurfing in Murcia but with the added benefits of more privacy and comfort that come with having your own room or apartment. A holiday apartment in Murcia from 9flats is simply the best way to get to know the city and surrounding area during your visit.
Exploring from your holiday apartment in Murcia
The long coast of Murcia is known as the Costa Calida, or ‘hot one’ and it boasts more than 3,000 hours of sun every year. Many tourists choose to visit La Manga, a ‘sleeve’ of land which separates the Mediterranean on one side from the warm shallow inland waters of the Mar Menor on the other. This busy international resort aside, the other resorts to the south are much more Spanish and much quieter. The city of Murcia itself boasts a fine 13th century cathedral and the lovely Plaza del Cardenal Belluga where you can sip a drink while admiring the cathedral’s grand facade. There are many well-preserved Roman and Carthaginian archaeological sites in the area and the Parque Natural de Sierra Espuña offers fine hiking country.
Choosing your holiday accommodation in Murcia area
At a holiday apartment in La Manga you can enjoy the more developed side of the Murcia region. Although international in flavour, many families from Madrid keep holiday homes here and it can have a pleasing Spanish atmosphere even in the high season of July and August, when those Madrid residents flee the heat of the capital. The sheltered, warm and shallow Mar Menor is calm and gently sloping, making it ideal for children, while the strip itself has a lively nightlife. To the south meanwhile, a holiday apartment in cartagena has an altogether different atmosphere. Here you will find one of Spain’s major naval ports and historical site going back to Roman times.
What’s next after Murcia?
Move south into Andalusia and a stay at a holiday apartment in Granada would be perfect for visiting the world famous Alhambra. Here you will find a complex of absolutely stunning Moorish palaces and gardens, watered by still intact aquaducts which carry cool water from the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Travelling north to France, a holiday apartment in Biarritz is a complete change of scene, with its faded grandeur, posh restaurants and fashionable beach. Here you can visit the casino or surf in the famous waves. Wherever you travel, staying in authentic local accommodation gives a much more memorable experience than simply choosing an anonymous tourist hotel. So, book with 9flats for some unforgettable holiday accommodation.
