About Dave Hughes
My name is Dave Hughes, I'm Managing Director of the HR® Group in the UK, I'm a stickler for detail and accuracy which I have used whilst refurbishing and decorating our villa, this holiday home is used by myself and my wife throughout the year, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Dave Hughes purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Dave Hughes chose Murcia
I bought this property because of the year round climate, i also like to play golf so this is ideal with the amount of courses nearby, I wanted a villa that was in a secure location and on a resort that was not over developed, but that was also near enough to towns and villages so we could explore the local area and have places to visit when we are over

Great Villa, Very clean, great for a group and just like the pics. Really enjoyed our time here and would recommend.
Large, well equipped villa to suit the needs of all ages. Dave was excellent throughout the whole booking procedure, Andy was great from day one of our arrival, giving us very useful information. The welcome pack was a lovely addition after a days travelling for the adults. There is a shop on site which had all of the essentials at a reasonable price and the clubhouse was a lovely place to go to enjoy a drink or meal. Very friendly. We hired a car for the first week to visit places such as Cartagena, then relaxed the 2nd week with lovely views over the golf course which was perfect to wake up to and sit watching if you decide not to go out.
There were 7 adults ranging in ages from 20 to 50 with a 2 year old as well and everyone was so catered for they have asked to return and I did not want to leave! After staying in a variety of places I would definitely recommend this villa.
Superb villa. 5* in every way!
Due to our party size, we were limited to what villa we could book, on El Valle.
This villa was slightly more expensive than others that would have suited our needs, but it was worth every penny!
It may seem trivial, but just the fact that there was more than enough crockery and cutlery, was an absolute godsend!
From the outset, the communication with owner, and then the key holder was second to none.
Every question, and request, was answered and dealt with almost immediately.
From start-to-finish, it was a completely stress-free booking and holiday.
Wonderful villa, with wonderful people behind it.
Without hesitation, I’d look to book this villa again!
Having been to the villa before we knew what to expect and weren't left disappointed! The villa is in a fantastic location overlooking the 12th green at El Valle and the facilities are top class. The communication with Dave prior to arrival was great likewise on site with Andy the key holder. Would highly recommend to anyone - We will be looking to go back next year!
Wonderful stay in a beautiful Villa
My family and I had a fantastic stay at El Valle and the Villa was amazing! We spent a week and a half swimming in the pool, relaxing while watching golfers putt and then in the evenings after dinner we had an 8 pool competition which the kids loved. One of the best things about staying here is that you are able to do day trips to Murcia, Cartagena and the beaches of the Mar Menor. Coming back to such a relaxing, beautiful Villa was exactly what we needed. We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely stay here again. The owner was very helpful and everything was very professionally done. Many thanks for a fantastic holiday.........
Fabulous holiday with an objective overview
Our family group which included teenage foster boys was fabulous and we stayed for 4 weeks. The villa has everything required but the lower ground floor has 2-toned steps and the bottom step merges with the ground floor, we had 3 people misjudge and slip with my wife falling heavily. After a few days we got this bottom step taped with white bonding tape and that did the trick. The floors of the interior need a good clean and then polished/buffered to bring back some shine and colour to the lovely spacious lounge/diner. The information for renters contains info. re bugs and they are outside at night attracted by the lights it seems so make sure you buy a selection of insect sprays on first visit to supermarket. It was very bad initially but we dealt with the problem and quickly learnt how to avoid "fright night". Cockroaches were a problem on the lower ground floor but again not unexpected and a good spray every few days took care of that problem. Was it worth it, yes it was because the villa gave us everything we needed and the pool was well maintained regularly by a pleasant "pool boy".The golf clubhouse was outstanding, with the best restaurant in the area, fantastic staff and a whole range of evening activities with lots of live music during our stay and it was very affordable and very, very busy.
The bedrooms were excellent, by personal choice the master bed was far to hard for me and i could not get comfortable so i tried several of the other beds which were better and the whole layout of the property very good with 3 excellent bathroom facilities.
The kitchen is equipped with everything needed and only comment would be that drinking tea or coffee out of huge, thick pot mugs was not enjoyable, some thinner, porcelain type mugs are needed (we bought 2). As with any rental property it is easy to find fault but this villa fully deserves it 4 star rating from us.
The nearest beach is Santiago de la Ribera which is a 22km Drive, it takes 25 minutes in the car, but a lot of the other resorts on the Mar Menor coast can be reached in 30-45 minutes
The nearest Airport is San Javier which is 25km, Alicante is approx 90km away also. A new airport which is 10 minutes from the villa (corvera) is due to open in 2014 which will replace San Javier airport
The resort has a restaurant and a club house bar, it also has a supermarket onsite, during the summer months there is also entertainment provided on the terrace at the club house. There are also tennis courts, pool & air hockey tables.
