Villa Santa Rosalia

Food & drinks

The Costa Calida's countryside is very fertile and therefore there is also a large supply of fresh fruit and vegetables, which form the basis of regional cuisine. Rice is common and finds its way into many local dishes. The abundant and varied seafood from the Mar Menor and the Mediterranean Sea, together with game and meat from bred cattle grazing in the nearby mountains, make a tasty picture. The giant prawns are of extraordinary quality. Many desserts and cakes, often made from almonds, are prepared in this region. The excellent wines from the Jumilla and Yecla regions are widely known in Spain and abroad for their full-bodied flavour and round, fruity finish.


The climate on the Costa Calida is Mediterranean subtropical. Here you enjoy as many as 320 days of sunshine a year. The humidity is very low. All this gives a perfect combination of sea, subtropical weather, lots of light and clean air. The Costa Calida is a little paradise with mild temperatures. Due to the mountainous hinterland, this area is sheltered from the wind, making temperatures pleasant all year round. The cleanest province in Europe!
