“We no longer have to travel to Barbados, St Lucia or Cabo San Lucas to experience a five-star luxury resort. La Manga is the Caribbean of Europe and I can’t believe it’s just two hours from London”. Jennie Coughlan La Manga property owner, August 2016.
Surrounded by the serene waters of the Mediterranean to its Eastern side and the calming waters of the Mar Menor to the west, Las Acacias, Spain, this gated, secure neighbourhood of 29 homes, is nestled on the majestic strip of Spanish land jutting out into the sea know as La Manga.
Large villas inhabit the large plot of between 500 and 750 meters, all adjacent to the world class services of the La Manga club.
Natural, protected landscape with unique volcanic formations grace the area which houses the luxury new developments, courtyards, communal pools, sports facilities and just 29 homes unlike anything you are likely to find this far from Florida. In fact, the turquoise water and easy living will sometimes have you forgetting how close you are to home and just how easy it is to get here. A weekend in Spain? Now, you can’t do that in Miami, can you?
Las Acacias on La Manga Club is a carefree oasis of large two, three and four bedroom Spanish homes with sea views and incredibly, volcanic views revealing the origin of the strip as it soars like a beacon in the Mediterranean Sea.
Here in La Manga we think you might enjoy:
- Three world class golf courses.
- Calblanque and Monte de Las Cenizas Natural Park.
- Cabo de Palos, marine reserve. (endorsed by the world health organisation).
- The 1,400 acres of the la Manga club.
- Principe Felipe five-star hotel.
- 28 court tennis facility, which is popular for often hosting Davis Cup holders… The British team.
- Children’s club, where the little ones will be stimulated while having a great holiday. The parents and grandparents with her free time are the big winners.
- Guest hosts of the various clinics- David Gower, Lee Westwood, Gordon Strachan, Jo Durie might help you achieve your sporting goals.
- 15 Bars and restaurants- everything you’d expect from 5star dining in Spain.
- Private exclusive beach, only for La Manga residents and their guests.
- Spa and Fitness facilities totally 2,000 sqm of relaxation.
- Private community, location central to all facilities. The privacy is something you and your family will love. Walking distance to the resorts facilities is a bonus allowing you to remain lounging at the pool while the girls walk across to the golf academy. It’s good enough for ATP tour events so it should be good enough for you.
- Private parking, pools and gardens.
- The plots are being designed right now. If you get involved today, you can choose a third bedroom, the shape of your private pool, perhaps a basement which will serve as that boys room you always wanted. Warning: it will soon be turned into the kid’s room when the grandchildren discover it.
- 24-hour security. We want you and your family to be safe. With the insecurity we are finding all over Europe these days, your safety is of paramount importance to us here in La Manga.
Project management services
You have heard the stories about Spanish builders, we know you have. Will it help if you can see hundreds of properties that the developers have already designed and built, meet their architects and engineers while they sit with you to design your perfect home in Spain. You can watch it grow and on the weeks you are not here in Spain, we’ll email you photos of the properties progress.
Three and four bedroom options. You may prefer that 4th bedroom? If you do, get in touch now and we’ll reserve you a plot that has enough space internal and external that will constantly amaze you every time you get off that plane and arrive to La Manga.
The facilities on your doorstop. Golf, golf, golf! We have to say it three times as we have three world class PGA standard courses here in La Manga, often hosting international charity events and attracting stars of every walk of life to the Mar Menor.
La Manga club membership
We think this point is worth emphasising. The Las Acacia community is made of 29 plots, two, three and four bedroom new developments, all are within walking distance and with access to gym, restaurants, golf, football, tennis, spa and nature. This is all true and you are aware by now. As an owner of a La Manga new build property, you will benefit from a simple card that will never leave your wallet. The La Manga Club card – yes it will help open doors for you back home as well as in Spain. From a very practical point of view, the card will give you preferential treatment including discounts in the hotel for your friends when their favourite football team is staying there. We think you’ll like the special benefits such as avoiding those annoying queues and access to the bars even when the rest of the residents cannot get past the “private function, PGA event, no access” sign.
Do you think your clients, your friends, your family might appreciate it if you offer them a week in your luxury La Manga property by the Mar Menor?
Don’t worry about maintenance, cleaning, gardening, decorating, rental and even selling should you choose to upgrade to a bigger villa. We have professionals in place who take care of this for you, our client and our guest.
Spanish Solutions will be thrilled to offer you legal and taxation help- we appreciate the importance of you knowing that your paperwork has every line and dot included before you sign in the notary.
Playground of the rich and famous.
We are not suggesting that you would buy a property in La Manga just so that you can brag to your friends about having a cocktail with Matt Damon or The Spanish Royal family, of course not.
However, you just might like to know before you buy that you’ll likely be rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s top celebrities, sports stars and big names from the world of politics, business and even royalty on the La Manga Strip.
Celebrities who have visited of late include, Robbie Williams, Jamiroquai, Cliff Richard, Gloria Estefan, Flamenco star Antonio Canales, Vonda Shepherd, Deep Purple, John Malkovich and British tennis’ Leon Smith. Even the European Union have held events here! (the EU Agrictural meeting, European Transport Ministers meeting and International energy conference).
Last year on one of the professional football pitches we saw a kick around amongst friends, between as they were then, Jurgen Kopp’s Dortmund and Anderlecht. Just a kick around on the Spanish Costa while getting a bit of sun for themselves at the same time. The football pitches hosted Real Madrid, Liverpool, Shakhtar Donetesk, The English and Irish National squads, English ladies, and although it didn’t prevent their relegation this year, Newcastle United had a long weekend here in La Manga during the January Premier league weekend off, in 2016. They had been knocked out of the FA cup so got together in Spain for a few days.
It’s not like many other training events where fans are unwelcome… As a general rule here the fans and players all mix and the players are very willing to stop for photos with the locals.
We were uninvited yet very welcomed guests at the 20th annual Kenny Dalglish golf event this year in La Manga and Alan Shearer was lucky that my playing partner’s drive didn’t actually take his head off as it threatened to do once it left Mick’s driver.
“Geordie” Mick was as little star struck we think and we were just playing there on a Saturday morning when we realised that we were sharing the course with Pat Jennings, Liam Brady, Dave Beasant, Kevin Davies and 45 other ex-footballers enjoying the La Manga sun, and super golfing.
We are somewhat limited due to privacy in saying who actually owns property on La Manga but someone you won’t see living here is Sean Connery… He has sold up and moved Stateside but does still come back to see us in La Manga from time to time.
About the area
La Manga is a volcanic looking strip of land 24 km long located on the Mar Menor, Spain.
Alicante Airport is about an hour drive away and San Javier Airport is much closer, less than 20 minutes.
The unusual looking land mass was formed on the large saltwater lake of the little sea, Mar Menor with its shallow waters always slightly warmer and calmer than its big sister the Mediterranean.
The lagoon was designated a protected area by the UN and the buildings there, the new developments which are so popular with buyers from all over Europe, respect this fact. It’s impossible to ignore and not almost feel the volcano forming as you look across at the islands of Perdiguera, Mayor or Redonda. Tourism now is the main activity on La Manga, but it was not always like this.
The first inhabitants of La Manga built small wooden huts from mud and branches along the Mediterranean coastline 5,000 years ago, rather than the five-star resort we see today. Accommodation on La Manga has changed in the years since.
Iberians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs and Greeks have built fish farms here and mined the vast silver deposits of the Sierra Minera. These days it’s the 73 km of coastline, the crystal warm waters and the promise of luxury, relaxation and some of Europe’s best golf that draws plane loads of investors and holiday makers to this corner of Spain on such a regular basis.
La Manga is not for everyone. If you are looking for a cheap repossession, a stag and hen haven or a party venue to rival Ibiza it is just not the place for you to be.
If you are looking for something that bit special, get in touch with Claire at the Comaskey office today and she’ll arrange your inspection trip.
Want to play 18 holes when you are viewing? That fine, we will organise that. Do you wish to see some of the other less popular resorts in the area for comparison? That’s the best reason to contact and buy through Comaskey as opposed to any random agent, as we have access to every single development. Now, why would we want to show you cheaper property in other areas of the Southern Spanish coast? We know these other properties will help convince you that La Manga is the place for you to be.
It’s that good here.
Come and see it, arrange your viewing with Claire right now.
We almost forgot to say, La Manga is part of our 2016 New Build 100,000€ Summer sales event. We are giving buyers just like you up to 10,000€ in various discounts and deals. We might extend past the September 1st deadline, but just in case and in order not to miss out of this super bonus, get registered with Claire today.
