About the Area
Cehegin is a town and municipality in the Comarca del Noroeste of the autonomous community of the Region of Murcia, Spain, situated some 66 km from the city of Murcia. it has a population of approximately 16,248 with 8227 males and 8021 females. it is crossed by the rivers Argos and Quipar.
The town of Cehegin is a very old town, lying some 50 km North East of Murcia which is easily reached on the dual carriageway. Roads are reasonably quiet in the locality. As the town is in the foothills, summer is not as hot as the coastal areas and reasonably cool in the evenings, giving rise to many round-the-pool BBQ evenings. Cehegin has a strong religious history and indeed many different Nationalities have been here in the past. Cehegin remains a very important locality, especially with it’s near location to Caravaca De La Cruz, which is a leading religious town, and one of the 5 most important religious towns in the World. Many religious buildings are still in the vicinity of the property.
The people of Cehegin are typical country people, exceptionally friendly, helpful and good company, but there are also a number of various nationalities and expats living here and this gives rise to a large number of social activities in the area. Cehegin has an excellent sports centre and recreational activities available. There are numerous walking and cycle paths and tracks, some short and some long. indeed one of the longer walks is a religious path from the coast to Caravaca, some 78km long, and walked by many over a period of 6 or 7 days stopping off at local hostels and hotels on the way.
Spain is a deeply religious country, and has many Festivals (Fiestas) over the year celebrating certain important events, and immensely enjoyable if attended, highly recommended.
The nearest large supermarket to the villa is less than 1-minute drive, and the town centre 2 minutes drive. The town itself is a typical Spanish country town, but providing a small hospital and health centre with English speaking Doctor and 24 hour emergency room. There are a number of major Spanish banks, shops of all descriptions, some excellent restaurants and takeaways. Caravaca De La Cruz is some 8 km distance and has a first class hospital with the full complement of medical services, plus a castle, major church and many shops.
Street markets can be found in every local town, with each day a different town. Cehegin has it’s market day on Wednesday, very cheap and extremely fresh fruit and vegetables, cold meats, fresh meat, cheeses, shoes, clothes, leather, and kitchenware. These markets are well worth a visit, join the locals in shopping, expect crowds though, these markets are very popular.
There are bus services linking the various towns and cities, for example Cehegin is linked with Caravaca on an hourly bus service, but it should be remembered that this is not a city with bus stops every 50 meters, and a car is a recommended must.
Local knowledge is valuable for newbies, we have a local friend who is also our part time gardener, Miguel, who speaks English and knows everyone that you will need to know, and everywhere to go that you will need to go, he comes with the villa!!
