Going Native in Murcia

After four more years of research, investigating, enjoying and eating (!)
here in Murcia we’ve eventually finished the third edition of our popular
book, Going Native In Murcia. This one is a whopper, with 3 times as much
information plus town maps. I can’t believe how thick it is, and we made
the size of the book larger. It now weighs in at 286 pages.

If you’ve bought either of the two previous editions you’ll be shocked at
how much more information we’ve packed into this new one. All the golf
courses, horse riding centres, spas and balnearios… more restaurant
reviews, location reports, the opera, jazz festivals, Roman remains,
cinemas, shopping centres, museums and galleries… market days, fiesta
dates, maps of some of the main towns, walking routes… I could go on!
Here’s the Marketing Blurb below!

Full of useful tips straight from a British couple who now call this region
their home. Let Debbie and Marcus be your guides as they share their love
for Murcia, its people and its surrounds with intimate details, personal
stories and hot tips for visitors, home buyers and new natives alike. This
third edition has been carefully revised and is packed full of 300% more
information including all town guides and selected maps. Going Native in
Murcia – the most comprehensive guide in print – is now even better.

This third edition has been carefully revised and is packed full of extra
information. Going Native in Murcia – the most comprehensive guide in print
– is now even better.

This book has taken 9 years to research and has been a real pleasure,
taking us around the whole region that we now like to call our home. The
first edition came out in May 2005, when we had to force ourselves to stop
adding information and get the book out there! This third edition for 2012
has been fully revised and updated and includes maps, 300% more
information, data on every town in the region, a list of the golf courses,
the new airport details, what’s happening at Paramount, plus loads more…

The book was born out of the frustration of none of the major guides
covering the region, or at best only dedicating 4 or 5 pages to it. When
they did mention Murcia they focused entirely on the golf complexes and
housing estates. In fact, the only guides we could find that covered the
Murcia region in any detail were in Spanish, interspersing flowery language
with inaccurate information. So we felt it was time for someone to put this
major region firmly on the map.

Murcia is a beauty, with warm and welcoming people, a strong property
market, wonderful food and fantastic weather. Our goal for you as you read
this book is that you’ll be able to enjoy visiting this region in all its
glory – with us as your equally wide-eyed guides. If you’re thinking of
investing here or even making this region your new home then the sections
on buying and visiting will tell you all you need to know.
