About the Owner
Hi, my name is Sonja McGrattan. I am married and live in Luton, Bedfordshire, England.
I am self employed and work as a Chiropodist offering foot care from home and on a domiciliary basis.
I purchased the studio apartment in May 2005 and chose Torrevieja for its bustling, cosmopolitan feel. My husband and I have enjoyed many short breaks as well as longer breaks since purchase!!
It is ideally located for all amenities and feels like real Spain. We have met local British people who have retired to Spain, along with local bar owners English, Spanish, Dutch, Norwegian etc.
Year property purchased: 2005
Why this location?
I looked at several properties both by the coast and inland. My preferred criteria were beach or pool, a location not requiring the hire of a car, shops, bars and restaurants all in easy reach. I was shown three other properties but adored the apartment I purchased. Inland property would have required car hire. It is within the town of Torrevieja, 50 metres from the sea. It is all on the flat and everything is within walking distance. During the summer the Spanish take their holidays in Torrevieja and the late evenings can yield many Spanish enjoying the summer evenings, yet my apartment is a haven as it is not in the middle of the hustle and bustle. It is a very clean environment, the beaches are immaculate and the town centre is being renovated to a high standard.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
This studio offers all amenities, supermarkets, chemists, weekly market, shops, boutiques, etc but at a fraction of the cost of other larger properties in the area. Flights to Spain during the spring/summer months are expensive so I have reflected that in the price of the apartment on a weekly hire. No car hire is needed as everything is within easy walking distance. It is suitable for wheelchair access. The Playa del Cura beach and shops are pedestrianised. The Los Locos beach is long and wide. Despite the weakness of the pound sterling to euro, prices remain relatively cheap in Torrevieja and have done so for several years. There are bars and restaurants to suit all nationalities and the harbour/marina area has been transformed & modernised comprising upmarket lounge bars etc.
