This website contains information about my 'holiday home' near Mazarron,
Murcia Region, Spain.

looking from the end of the Playa del Rihuete back towards Puerto de

25APR17 - To see full details of changes
in national and local "Water Reserves" from July 2014 to 25 April 2017 across
Spain and in the Murcia Region ('Segura Basin'), please visit my 'Links'
page, click on 'Water' in the top menu bar, or scroll down the page to the
section called "Water Reserves" - or go straight to the "Water Reserves"

11JAN17 - Toll rates effective 1JAN17
for all Spanish toll motorways supported by the State have been reduced by
a further 0.4% as compared with those for 2016 (the reduction effective 1JAN16
was 0.6% compared with 2015), the second year in a row that tariffs have
fallen (after several years unchanged), in accordance with a formula agreed
in 2002; toll rates are usually revised at the beginning of each calendar
year. The full tariff details for 2017 have now been published, and as expected
most tariffs remain unchanged, but a few have shown minor reductions, both
probably to try and reflect accurately the net effect of the changes last
year and this year, allowing for rounding errors. Please visit my 'Location'
page and various of the pages linked to from there, or you can go straight
to the main 'Location' page by clicking
6JAN17 - I have updated the section in
my 'Links' page for Public Holidays for 2017 to include details of national,
regional and local holidays throughout the Valencian Community
('Communitat Valenciana') and throughout Andalucia, in addition
to the details of those applicable in the Murcia Region of Spain for
2017 (which I have been preparing for a number of years every year). Please
visit my 'Links' page and the 'Public Holidays' section there to find this
information, or you can go straight to the relevant section by clicking
NB/ The consolidated list of equivalent Public Holidays for 2017
for the whole of Spain is also linked to in the 'Public Holidays' section
in the 'Links' page. To find details of local holdays in regions of Spain
other than Murcia Region, the Valencian Community and Andalucia, you will
need to visit their respective websites or obtain information
6JUL16 - I have revised the page of travel
directions from Alicante-Elche(ALC) airport to Mazarron Country Club (MCC);
the previous revision was in February 2014. The latest revision aims to make
the beginning of the journey onto the motorway from the airport clearer and
less ambiguous, also a slightly later part of the journey less prone to error.
However, as many people now use SatNav for many journeys (I use TomTom, for
information), up-to-date mapping now includes most street addresses at MCC
under City/Town name "Mazarrón", for example the main avenue at the
entrance (with the statues) to MCC is called "Avenida Victoria" so if your
SatNav mapping is current, it will probably take you straight to your MCC
address, but my notes are designed for those who do NOT have SatNav, and
in particular those unfamiliar with the area. To see links to travel directions
from various nearby airports, please click on 'Location' from the menu at
left, but to go straight to this revision of directions from ALC please click
19JUN16 - Although I update parts of
this website on a regular basis, I do not always mention minor changes here.
However, I have today updated part of the 'Links' page extensively and in
particular the "Social Clubs & Groups" sub-section of the 'Community'
section, where the changes affect both a new group called 'MCC Life' and
the existing 'MCC Social Club'. To go straight to the 'Community' section,
