We visited Corvera on 2nd November and have posted some pics if anyone is interested. As you can see from these, there is a fairbit going on no and the fottings are now being dug for the properties along with a lot of the infrastructure.

Spoke to Pablo in the site office who was ver helpful and informative. He has photocopied details of the golf course including the details of each hole, length and general playing guides. He has confirmed that the course will be started in Feb '08 and is expected to be finished along with phase 1 and 2 in May '09.

He has also supplied us with a map of what and where the leisure/sports facilities are going to be located.

Anyone who would like a copy of these, please let me know and I'll scan and email them to you. (gareth@made2measuregolf.co.uk).

Really looking forward to it all now and its great to have some positive news coming through now.

Gareth, that's good news. I sent you an e-mail as well.

We were out a few weeks ago as well. We spoke to a few people including some independent people. Altho way behind time, I still think Corvera will be brilliant. I don't have any doubts about the resort at all. People will always be concerned until it is finished but Calidona are not a fly by night organisation. And as I said in previous threads, I cannot believe the PGA would tie themselves to anyone other than the top people.

By all accounts, one of the Polaris resorts started a bit before the official go-ahead by the council, and they had to stop for a while, which meant they then were struggling to finish within the 18 month deadline. Calidona don't want to go down this route and are doing everything by the book.

The Murcian council are being particularly slow to issue the certs because they are afraid that if they rush into things, it will end uplike the Costa del Sol with half resorts being built everywhere and some needing to be taken down again. While this is a slow process, in the end it is the right decision.

Anyone who has visited/stayed in Roda, which we did last month, will appreciate how outstanding a resort it is, and how good the finish is, and even how good the golf course is. If Corvera is half as good it will be worth every penny. And by all accounts, it is reputed to be even better. Although not by the sea (an advantage Roda has), the location of Corvera is beautiful.

We also visited a few Polaris resorts, in particular La Torre. And while it is very nice, it is not in the same league as Roda.

I'd add that the De Vere hotel has amended its hotel plans from around 80 rooms to around 140. This is obviously a confident move by the hotel in how well they expect to do. And all the building works around the resort and in Corvera by other developers shows others expect the area to flourish. Finally the airport has to be a strong selling point.

The only slighlty down point I'd make is, realistically the golf course in Corvera will not be finished at exactly the same time as phase 1 and 2. And it is obvious why, as so long as building work is going on the fairways and greens around them cannot be finished. When I pushed for a time frame, I was told probably 3-6 months before the course is completely up and running (which means maybe even longer). This means that rentals will probably be poor for most of the 1st year. The advice we were given (by some independent property people) is that anyone expecting to make a quick buck on Corvera will probably not do so, whereas anyone there for a reasonably long haul will do very well.

Thanks Gareth - I too have sent you an email with my personal email requesting information.


I agree 100% with Frank. I think he presents a good, objective viewpoint. As always, my gripe has been the lack of information from Calidonia which, in my case, coupled with poor/incompetent advice from MRI recommended independent lawyers has not helped things much. I am in it for the long haul, but have lost patience. Hopefully, things are on the up now.

Ash

Hi All,

I sent an e-mail today to corvera requesting an update and this is the reply I got,

"All properties in phase 2 are expected to be handed over around May 2009. Currently there is a lot of activity on site with 20 cranes in place and the infrastructure being carried out (internal roads, drainage system, underground electrics etc.). We expect the above ground building work (ie. the properties themselves) to start this month".

All seems to be heading in the right direction, I won't be over until the end of Jan, will take photos while I'm there, meanwhile any updates at all would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Gina

If anyone is interested, there are some updated construction photographs on the Corvera website. Looks very promising.

At last some positive progress, veiwed the updated photos from corvera and can clearly see that the fondations for our apartment have been excavated and concreted, if anyone is on phase one or two and check the photos against the map supplied in your contract documents you will be able to identify yor relevent plot, it took me about 10 minutes to finally get my bearings but with a bit of patience it will become quite clear.

They seem to have made good progress at last, it does appear that their will be quite large green areas between properties, i hope some of you will be able to identify your plot as i have done, good luck.

dave

Thanks Gareth. Don't understand what's happening but using Mozilla Firefox browser the link takes me to the old pics. Using internet explorer the new ones appear!! How bizarre.
