Home to friendly local people, busy food markets that sell delicious local produce and fresh vegetables, elegant architecture and sunny plazas where you can indulge in some people-watching from a traditional café while the children play undisturbed, Murcia is an excellent holiday destination if you long for a break in the sun.

Where to stay in Murcia
Can you imagine being able to enjoy a large stone villa with a private garden by the local golf course or a modern apartment with its own swimming pool in the middle of town for the price of a plain hotel room? Murcia’s wide choice of accommodation is ideal to ensure that your family holiday becomes an unforgettable experience. A holiday rental with HouseTrip will give you the opportunity to meet your neighbours who will tell where you can find the most spectacular hidden coves along the stunning Manga del Mar Menor, a salt water basin of sparkling turquoise waters, as you share a chilled bottle of wine with them after a busy day exploring the city.
Murcia with the family
