The beach at La Azohia is gently shelving with shallow, warm waters & a beautiful new palm-lined promenade stretching two miles ensuring a memorable evening stroll along the sea front as the sun sets across the bay. Much prized by the Spanish the sea here is considered amongst the clearest in Spain & has been granted blue flag status for many years with the deeper waters at Cabo Tinoso known by divers far & wide for their colourful sea beds & by the local fishermen who still bring in their daily tuna catches to the quaint marina.

The Costa Calida is a fairly undiscovered part of south-east Spain. La Azohia is a totally unspoilt idyllic Spanish fishing village on the Costa Calida. It lies at the sheltered end of the large Mazarron bay, just 10 minutes drive away from Mazarron with its wealth of shops, restaurants, and a wonderful large sandy beach. It is 20 minutes drive away from the large town of Cartagena, where Hannibal landed with his elephants. There are no organised tour operators here, and even in the height of the season you will be able to find virtually empty beaches in La Azohia and around the bay of Mazarron. The beaches in this area of the Costa Calida are fantastic - plenty of large, fine sandy beaches (including a number of blue flag beaches) for the perfect beach holiday.
Rest, relax … there is almost no pace of life here. For the more energetic, there is swimming, windsurfing, diving at all levels .La Azohia is a very well-known place for diving, sailing, boat cruises, golf, biking, river rafting, tennis, trekking.
Puerto de Mazarron
Just a short drive away is Puerto de Mazarron, with many bars, restaurants, super markets, banks, a children’s play ride which looks lovely lit up in the evening.
Further along the main road is also a small fair and local stalls which are opened in the evening.

The port of Mazarron has a Sunday Market, this is lovely, it has so much local flavour just like old Spain.
The Beach at Mazarron is beautiful, very large and flat and sandy with children’s park and swings, also lots of restaurants and bars, and if you like bowls there is a lovely club there which you can go in as guest.

For the golfers there are lots of places to go, there are three new 18 hole clubs between Cartagena and San Javier airport.
There is a 9 hole course at Campersol 20mins away the other side of Mazarron town.

Cartagena is about 20 minutes away and has some lovely shops, but the old town and port are worth the visit and it has very interesting and well conserved archaeological rest from Romans, fenicios and Carthaginians. The food is fantastic, and its people pleasant. Summer here it’s fantastic, but there is no word to describe how marvellous it is to spend you winter time here with no noise and an average temperature of 10-20 ºC

The Costa Calida and local climate around La Azohia puts claim to no less than 300 days of sunshine a year. Check for availability and book your stay on-line. Please note it is a no smoking apartment that pets are not allowed.

Due to economics the minimum booking of the apartment is 1 week

Payment in Stirling or euro's can be made by credit card or debit card via our our agents Clickstay, this is for your security and ours.

There are 4 dive schools in the immediate vicinity and the diving is reputed to be the 5th best in the world
A round of golf can be had within a 30-minute drive.
The Sierra Espuna is a beautiful national park. This is lovely days outing by car taking in stunning views and stopping at a restaurant for lunchtime “Del Dia “
Cartagena is only 20 mins away with history and shopping.

Well Equipped Apartment with Stunning Views
What a fabulous view from the roof terrace and almost every window in the house! I have stayed at the San Gines twice before but this is the best place by far. So well equipped, with amazing views from the solarium and the bikes, beach chairs and cool box were a welcome bonus. Communication with Robert was quick and easy and arrival and departure made so much simpler with the key box. I worried about not having a contact in resort but nothing went wrong and there was no need to contact Robert for anything once we got there, we just unpacked and lived like a local for 10 days.

La Azohia is a lovely little fishing village like Spain used to be many moons ago. Plenty of places to eat, our favourite was Bellavista, delicious food at very reasonable prices and always a warm welcome. There's a good sized Coviran in the neighbouring Isla Plana, only 5 mins by car or a 15 minute cycle along a lovely coastal route.

The apartment was spacious, great water pressure in the huge shower and the beds were so comfy. We would've preferred a double (king size) but just moved the drawers and pushed the twins together (at least I got to keep all my own covers this way!). Only a 10 minute walk from a lovely beach with crystal clear water and a lovely promenade walk to the Aussie Bar at the harbour, well worth the 20 minutes to see the view across the water to Puerto Mazarron.

We had wifi and English channels on the TV which was a bonus too.

I can definitely recommend The Escape to anyone wanting a quiet, away from it all, out-of-season holiday with plenty of amenities just a short walk away. We will be back :-)

Couple from Newry, United Kingdom Jun 2018

The Escape is exactly as described and we loved it. We have been to the area before having previously stayed in neighbouring Isla Plana which we also loved but La Azohia has the edge (in our opinion).
We could not think of one thing that we required during our stay that was not available in the apt; the owners have thought of everything!
From booking through to check in and check out we had a very smooth and positive experience with a steady flow of information from the owners. (The fly screens on the windows were very welcome).
The apt’s terrace affords excellent views and is great for sunbathing at any stage of the day and perfect for watching the sunset.
It’s about a five minute walk (downhill) to the neatest beach. We walked along the paseo most days to Isla Plana and then to the harbour in La Azohia which is in total a seven mile round trip, with various places to stop for refreshment en route. We especially enjoyed walking in the hills behind the apt and gathering wild thyme and rosemary to use for cooking with.
There were a few other residents scattered around San Gines when we were there but it was an extremely peaceful location (which suited us).
We will certainly be recommending The Escape to family and friends and look forward to revisiting in the near future. Thank you so much!


Couple from Great Dunmow, United Kingdom Feb 2018

very pleasant stay. The apartment was ideally located and very well equipped. The area was very quiet and peaceful. However because of the time of year a lot of the bars and restaurants were closed which we should of expected as it is a less commercialized area. We had a car though, which is a must, so it didn't spoil the holiday too much.


Couple from Thirsk, United Kingdom Dec 2017

This was our first stay in apartment and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment was like a home from home and really comfortable. We loved the area and hope to go back again. We drove down and having our car was certainly an advantage.


Couple from Cullompton, United Kingdom Nov 2017

Brilliant apartment even better than we expected having read reviews; Rob replied promptly to the one or two questions I emailed him. Welcome bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch, it was spotlessly clean and great value for money. The only "negative" (it's a personal thing so obviously no reflection on the apartment) is that the break confirmed that we just don't like Spain very much, we normally holiday in Greece and just don't get the same "feel" in Spain. If we could uproot the apartment and relocate it in a small coastal village in Zakynthos (for example) we'd be booking it twice a year!

Having said that if Spain is your thing then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Escape very highly.


Family from Onsala, Sweden Jan 2017

very nice place with even better seaview than in the pictures. Heating worked great and so did everything else. Good beds and quiet. Wonderful Wifi that even worked on the roof terraze.


Couple from Dereham, United Kingdom Mar 2016

On arrival the shutters to the lounge window and patio doors would not work,but the problem was overcome eventually.Also found that toilet had been used but not flushed-not a major issue but still not something you want to find.On day three my wife took it upon herself to squeegee excess water from the roof terrace left by the automatic watering system and the tubular metal handle split and cut her hand quite badly.Could not access internet-no response from organisation handling its security.Despite these niggling issues we loved the area and the apartment--- we just thought we were unlucky to have everything happen at once and that the apartment needs a bit of TLC.

Reply from Robert

We are very sorry some small problems were experienced. Unfortunately, we were only alerted to the shutter malfunction on the day before arrival. We do endeavour to rectify any problems as soon as we are notified. Unfortunately, as it was over the long Spanish Easter weekend we were somewhat limited.
To ensure connection, the internet does need to be booked and paid for as an optional extra when a booking is made, we can then request a switch on for the dates required.
Given the problems encountered, we are very pleased that you loved the area and the apartment.

Hello Mr Kind,Just a line to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your apartment in La Azohia. Everything was as described and we needed for nothing.This is our third year running , twice a year, at El Pinar de sans Gines and have rented various apartments However, we have found our favourite with yours! The layout with access to the roof terrace from the living room was so much better and we used the lower balcony for all our meals.With all that in mind we would like to return again next year.Mr & Mrs WaslinCo Durham

This property is everything you could possibly want for a relaxing holiday. It is modern, immaculately clean and well kitted out for a self catering holiday. The roof terrace is absolutely beautiful and has sea views - perfect for watching the sun go down. It is sitauted less than 5 minutes walk to the beach and has on site swimming pools - 3 in total I believe. The apartment is within a very close walking distance to local resturants and a short drive away from Mazzaron which is a slightly busier spanish resort. I recommend The Escape for a peaceful get away and complete rejuvenation.

Wonderful apartment, fantastic views, great sunsets, we loved the area, we felt really relaxed in the apartment,which was very comfortable.Weather was great for November, we will certainly return.

Lovely apartment, well equiped and tastfully furnished. We had great week, beautiful views from all aspects of the apartment especialy from the sun terrace. Terrific sunsets. Very Spanish area, quite and really great for chilled out break. Michelle, James and Tom

On our first visit to this area we were amazed by the fantastic location and beautiful apartment. The living area is particularly comfortable and very homely. The kitchen, bedrooms and outside living areas were furnished with the everyday essentials and more. I particularly made use of the plush laidback sofas and fluffy cushions! If the luxury apartment was not enough, the views were fantastic too! From sunrise to sunset the ocean and surrounding villages were on show from the terrace like a postcard sent from paradise.Our first visit left us wanting more, so the second visit is planned for March 2006. Counting down the days!Mr & Mrs BriggsNarboroughLeicestershire

We are now both retired and have only this apartment to enjoy, we have furnished it for our own comfort and keep it up to a very good standard. It is in the very best position on the urbanization with views second to none. I was with BT for 23 years and now work part time for the ambulance service. Angela was with the library service and now does part time admin work at home via the P C.
