Mosa Trajectum Golf
It has been said that, “A page of history is worth a pound of logic.” If this is true then the thousands of historical references to the region add up to tons of logical reasons why Murcia was chosen to be the site of the Mosa Trajectum 5 Star Golf & Sports Resort.
The place borders a UNESCO protected nature reserve only 10 minutes away from Murcia, near the beaches of the Costa Cálida and yet with rugged mountain landscapes on its doorstep. Out of respect for nature only 9% of the 3.6 million square meters are constructed on, giving you room to breathe the air of Europe’s cleanest province.
The region of Murcia is one of stark contrasts. Rugged mountains, rolling green fields, golden sandy beaches and crystal clear waters all find a home here. It is an area of great historic and cultural heritage, of time honoured traditions and friendly open people.
It is truly a Mediterranean region in both customs and climate. It is a place that enjoys an annual average temperature of 20 C and nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine. It is a place with just two seasons, Spring and Summer, and even when the temperatures start to rise there always seems to be a cool sea breeze blowing.
This is, in fact, such a special location that UNESCO has declared the land adjacent to Mosa Trajectum a protected area. The region boasts 274 kilometres of beautiful coast and two different seas: The Mediterranean and the Mar Menor, which is a 180 km2 interior saltwater lagoon with fantastic beaches and clear warm water. The area also has 19 protected nature reserves and a marine reserve. It is here at the hub of this paradise that we have chosen to build our ambitious resort and a new way of life.
In the property business, it is said that there are three main factors to consider when looking for a home: location, location and location. It is an idea that may not be as new as one would think and records show that we are clearly not the first to find this an ideal location. People have been living here from as far back as 1,500,000 years. Geological records show the area was first occupied by the Neanderthals and the Cro-Magnons. OK, so they are probably not the greatest reference when selecting a location to live but later the Romans with a lot more sense and mobility also chose the area in which to settle in 209 BC.
The city of Murcia itself was founded by the Caliph of Cordoba Abd-Al-Rahman II in the year 831 and has flourished ever since. Murcia soon became the political and economic capital of the region. To this day there are still vestiges of Murcia’s Moorish past. Buildings, part of the city’s original defence wall and many of the reservoirs and irrigation canals dug at the time still remain.
Closer to home, the site of 360 hectares on which we have built Mosa Trajectum is also rich in history. Legend has it that sometime during the Middle Ages a pilgrim appeared on the land and took up residence in a small cave. Here he lived for years off the donations of food he received from local residents. As this man was devoted to Saint Esteban the area became known as San Esteban de Mendigo (Saint Esteban the Beggar) a name still used today.
The refurbished house that sits at the heart of Mosa Trajectum also has its tale to tell. The building dates back to sometime around the 17th or 18th century although it is difficult to find an exact date. The main house was built for a wealthy landowner whilst the outbuildings were used for farmhands and livestock.
At the heart of the resort is the charming 300-year-old Parador style hotel which has been lovingly restored into the way it was 300-years ago and converted into a cosy guest lodge and restaurant. Thanks to its convenient location, from here you can quickly reach the extensive golf facilities and then continue on to explore the rest of Mosa Trajectum.
Colourfully painted plaster walls and barrel tile roofs flow effortlessly into manicured lawns and palm-lined streets in true Spanish style. Brick inlaid sidewalks and old-world style wrought iron streetlights help to complete the scene. Fountains, ponds and thousands of trees, bushes and flowers have also been added to give Mother Nature just a bit of help in making this a paradise for all the senses.
Once you pass under the elegant stone archway at the entrance (inspired by the ancient bridge of Maastricht), you enter the world of Mosa Trajectum. A world designed by Mother Nature and enhanced by man. A world built not only to suit your needs but also to fulfil your dreams.
The beating heart of Mosa Trajectum is a 300 year old Parador style hotel and restaurant, in which you can still encounter traditional Spanish hospitality. Mosa
A house is nothing more than bricks and mortar, it is up to you to make it a home. A community needs however, the efforts of more than just one family. It means having the things you need within reach when you need them. It is a place to enjoy not only your home but your life.
At Mosa Golf Murcia you will be able to enjoy an ecological 27-hole Championship Golf Course built to the exacting standards set by the PGA and USGA. Our golf course runs through the resort, creating a spectacular and challenging landscape consisting of varied plants and trees, desert cacti, open rock-faces and a multitude of water features. In addition, many properties enjoy striking panoramic views of the golf course.
