Our location is spectacular and easy to get to. Although you wouldn’t know it, Ulea is approximately 25 minutes from the magnificent city of Murcia. It is also under an hour’s drive from both Alicante and Murcia International Airports.
Just a drive down the AP7/A7 and then up the A30 and Ulea is just off to the left, where you take the winding road into valley and feel as though you have literally stepped back in time.
If you’re joining us independently, the map below will help you find El Parque de Marquesa and once you enter the grounds you need to proceed straight down the driveway until you reach the very end where you will find Happy Retreats. The driveway turns into more of a track about half-way, so don’t let this worry you (you are on the right track), just keep to a low speed limit!
The only town nestled on the north east side of the Segura River, Ulea is one of six towns that make up the Valley: Abarán, Blanca, Ricote, Ojós, Ulea, Villanueva del Segura and Archena.
If that’s not enough, Spanish vineyards can be found in the towns of Jumilla, Bullas and Yecla all within a 30 minute drive, where you can visit a bodega and taste the local wines, which are definitely not to be missed.
