Where is The Best Place To Live in Murcia?

Murcia, Spain is known for its year-round sunshine, spectacular landscapes and authentic Spanish culture. It’s no wonder many British expats find themselves living here as this diverse region has something to offer individuals, families and retirees alike. When you’ve made the decision to move to Murcia, choosing where to buy property can be difficult, especially if you’ve only experienced the region as a tourist. At Welcome Estates, we pride ourselves on having an in-depth knowledge of the region and we know where to find properties for sale in Murcia in areas you’ll love to call home. Here are 4 places to live in Murcia that we consider hidden gems of the region.

Alhama de Murcia

The municipality of Alhama de Murcia is located close to the city of Murcia. This medium-sized town is perfect if you want to live near beaches that will suit any mood. Whether you’re looking for a beach to relax, a beach to explore or a child-friendly beach, living in Alhama de Murcia has something for everyone. With a population of over 20,000, you’ll find a small community of expats with a good selection of schools in the area. If you enjoy being close to nature, moving to Alhama de Murcia means you’ll enjoy living near the regional park of Sierra Espuna. The 25,000 hectares park is the perfect place for nature walks, picnics, barbeques or days out with the family. 

Torre Pacheco Golf Course

Ever considered living on a golf course? Located near the coast of Murcia, the Costa Cálida, Torre Pacheo is home to popular golf courses including the La Torre Golf Resort. Living on a golf resort offers you a high-quality golfing experience, right on your doorstep as well as a good selection of nearby amenities. Buying a golf course property isn’t just for avid golfers. Luxury apartments with 24-hour gated security, an onsite supermarket, beauty salons and restaurants put everything you need in close proximity. With most golf courses being located in desirable locations, you’ll find good local schools, and access to San Javier airport. You’ll also find good connections to the surrounding areas making it ideal for commuting.


In the north of Murcia, just 90km from the city, you’ll find the town of Yecla. If you’re looking for an escape from big cities and busy beaches, moving to Yecla might be right for you. Known for its rich history and famous vineyards, Yecla is surrounded by beautiful low-lying mountains which help maintain its own microclimate. Moving to Yecla could be a dream come true for wine enthusiasts with its wine routes and vineyard lifestyle, but it is also great for those who embrace rural living. With a population of over 34,000, Yecla has a small expat community and all the amenities you would expect in a big city, despite it not being a tourist town. If you’re looking for a life in the countryside, buying a home in Yecla could be ideal.

This new, luxury residential development has apartments built around a central park called “La Reserva” that is exclusively reserved for residents  of the resort.
