El Rancho Villas in La Manga

Comfort is key to an enjoyable family holiday in Spain, which is where El Rancho Villas come in.

A choice of one, two, three and four bedroom villas are available at the development in La Manga Club, which is situated at the base of the Murcian hills which provide a beautiful backdrop to the Spanish holiday resort.

Its central location guarantees ease of access to family groups and children are likely to be thrilled by the choice of nine communal swimming pools.

Younger children can also enjoy the smaller paddling pool and the ceiling fans that come as standard in the villas mean that it is easy to cool down after a hot afternoon on the sandy shores of the nearby Mar Menor which is only a ten minute walk away.
