Camposol Sector C
Following on from our article on Camposol sector B last month, by the start of the year 2001 B sector was effectively sold out and plots were released for the new C sector. At this time, the only way to access the sector C area was by driving through a rambla (dry river bed). This was good enough most of the time, however during the wetter months it was necessary to have a good 4 x 4 to get across it and at other times it was impossible and one had to wait until it had dried out. Once the building started in earnest and Grupo Masa were back and forth with building materials etc the new bridge soon followed and is still the only access between sectors B and C and D. Sector C is divided into 2 main areas, known locally as upper C and lower C, as they are some distance apart.
The building plots in this area were selling so fast, that it was not always possible to view a plot and manage to buy it on the same day. Estate agents advised potential buyers to have a second and third choice ready to avoid disappointment, and the whole sector sold out rapidly. This area is some distance from the commercials of the other sectors and those who enjoy a more peaceful life; simply love it.
C sector differs in a number of ways to the other areas, but one of the first things that is apparent is that not all the houses on this sector were built by MASA. There was another promoter in the area known as “Monsora” who purchased some of the land on lower C and built several more, smaller properties. These were not sold “off plan” but put up for sale once they had been completed. The timing of this was not good, as just as they were released for sale, the big recession of 2007 had already started and the majority of these properties became the property of a bank. Today, the market has significantly improved, and these villas are now selling fast and at very competitive prices. To find out more information on these you can contact Blue Med Investments or CamposolProperty Sales.
The first thing you will notice as you approach sector C is the “welcome wall” at the bottom of the hill on the right-hand side. Green Fingers are the lower C sector volunteer gardening group. They are responsible for the reason that this sector looks so lovely. They care and maintain all areas of lower sector C, which includes planting, watering and general maintenance of trees, shrubs, pots and flowers. They also keep the weeds down in our streets too. Greenfingers can always do with both more donations and more volunteers. If you are not able to volunteer then please stop and put something in the bucket on a Wednesday morning, or sign up to their optional €5 per month maintenance scheme, it is worth every cent.
There is no commercial centre on C sector but there is a beautiful golf course, a club house and bistro. There is also a 4-star hotel complete with health spa, which has been purchased and is due to re-open again in the not too distant future.
Camposol Club De Golf
This 18-hole golf course with stunning views is well established and extremely popular with residents and holiday makers. Camposol Club De Golf, is situated on Urbanisation Camposol near the town of Mazarròn in the region of Murcia.
Formally known as Sensol Golf, the course was acquired in 2013 by Mazarròn Entertainments SL. A major program of refurbishment has taken place and Camposol Club de Golf can now proudly present itself as one of the best, most competitively priced and visually attractive courses in the Murcia region. The course is 18 holes par 72 5895 metres (6500 yards) designed by Don Manuel Quesada Mendiola. Open to members and non-members alike, the course was originally opened in 2004 the course has matured well with attractive lakes, olive groves desert areas and palm trees to add some lovely scenery.
The Club House Bistro
The large attractively designed Club House, is open to all, featuring an excellent restaurant, substantial bar and private function room. The large terrace area has some of the best views overlooking the golf course, in the region of Murcia with some lovely outdoor seating and a huge barbeque.
As one of the only restaurants in Camposol outside the main commercial centres it is extremely popular and the food is of the highest quality. There is regular, good quality entertainment and live music. There are regular jam nights, fish and chip nights, steak nights and during the summer BBQ’s are held on this stunning terrace. There is a good value menu del dia on weekdays and their Sunday carvery is legendary.
The Club House can also be hired for private parties. During the summer an event on the outside terrace is a wonderful place to celebrate with family and friends for that special occasion.
The Sensol Hotel
This once lovely hotel and spa has been closed for nearly 7 years but a new buyer has come forward from a hotel chain in Ibiza and refurbishments should soon be underway. This hotel had some amazing facilities and residents and tourists all look forward to the re-opening. There was a fully equipped gymnasium, a restaurant and bar and music nights used to be held by the beautiful pool complex during the warm summer evenings. Whether these are likely to recommence is still not clear but we can hope! The Spa has to be one of the best we have ever visited. There was a pool complex and a wide range of treatments available. Whilst there is no official opening date, it should be worth the wait!
