Also what's sector A and B like ?
We would be very grateful for any replies regarding these properties , cheers
I suggest you take a look for yourself, and don't listen to people, some of whom have never been anywhere near Camposol.
Every urbanisation has problems and the ones mentioned here are hugely exaggerated. Believe when I say that subsidence is a very small problem in a very small area. The rest of the properties are well established and there are some fantastic bargains.
The beautiful Seaside town of Puerto de Mazarron is nearby, plus national parks, interesting villages and Cartagena, a wonderful city, steeped in history with a huge port area.
It is sad that ignorant people felt fit to run the place down, when they know nothing about it, apart from rumours.Don't let them put you off-come and visit!

If there isn't that much subsidence I wonder why the residents got together and started an action group and that's why that many people on there want off.The two enclosed files are from twelve months ago when we went to have a look to see what it was like finished as we have friends in Mazarron and we were having a couple of days with them.But hey at the end of the day horses for courses.Have to admit though that the wine was cheap in the bodega.

Thank you , very interesting piece of writing , We will go and see for our self's as you say nothing lost to look , Do you your self live there ?
We we're on the murcia flight in April of this year and got talking to a lady called Carol , she had visited her family in Uk and was saying she lived in sector B , I think ...... She said visit the place , she also said she loved it and made lot's of friends there
We did not go as a young man in front of us , tapped me on the shoulder and said take a look on U tube you'll see,,,,,,,,,,, oh dear we thought
So when we got home we did and was gob smacked at the film showing all these lovely houses falling down , so that was that for us
But reading this column it's made us think twice , We will go and let you all know what we saw and thought .thank you all for your input, very grateful indeed cheers

We spent some time there in winter 2011 when we were deciding where to buy. I can honestly say there is no more depressing place to live! We spent every day out of the place and regretted wasting time there. I would never even visit for a day!

We are still looking for a place to hang our hat.

We visited Campasol a couple of times. Once we were invited to a BBQ by a very nice family that live on sector B.

We discounted it for us personally, but that was only that it was so far away from anywhere else that you need a car if you want a change of scenery.

On the plus side sectors A & B are very well established and have thriving commercial centres.

We found that although the density of housing was great it was not uniform like estates in UK. The houses in each block were built in different orientations and gave the impression of being unique.

You can get a lot of house for your money there including very reasonable detached places with private pools.

If you never wanted to venture further afield then it is perfect, it has all the shops, services, bars, restaurants, etc. that you would ever need. Having said that though, there are a number of walking trails around.

However, one of its biggest assets are the people who live there. They have started numerous clubs and societies, so many that you could be engaged in a different activity several times a day. They have a wonderful self help scheme for people who are unfortunate to have medical problems. They liaise with the emergency services so that there is no delay in finding an address. They have people who will do hospital visits for paliative care.

The area has received an awful lot of stick in the media, most of it unfounded as the vast majority of the properties there are well built, and most of the people who live there are very happy.

It may not be everyones cup of tea, but please don't knock it until you have at least done a rudimentary recce of the place

Soulboy you should rest your case - permanently.
If you are dim enough to believe "Homes from Hell", a sensationalist piece of reporting crap, then clearly you do not have the integrity to make a reasoned argument about the merits for or against Camposol.
The subsidence affects less than one percent of the properties there, but the community spirit is such that the majority of residents not affected are very willing to support the few who are. In fact community support is stronger there than I have encountered anywhere else, and is just one of the factors that makes it a great place to live.
There have been some issues with the builder, MASA, but these are in the process of being resolved, and for anyone who is capable of looking past the few who are shouting loudest about their problems, and which urbanisation does not have them?, will find a pleasant area. lots of local facilities, surrounded by open countryside yet 10 minutes from Mazzaron town and 15 minutes from miles of clean and, for most of the year, virtually empty beaches.
Please don't spout trite rubbish until you actually know what you are talking about.

Ahh you must live on Camposol and possibly trying to sell your house and can't find someone dim enough to buy it.And no I don't believe the homes from hell but you try telling that to the people who have been affected by this.We looked at Camposol when they were just starting the first phase and then had another look 12months ago just to see what it was like finished and saw some of those properties that were affected.I bet if you bought one of these defective properties you would soon be whingeing.Mind you I don't blame you for sticking up for the place as somebody has got to.
