4/5 double beds, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8 to 10. Garden, play room & conservatory
Fabulous Detached Villa. Fantastic family holiday home, situated short walk from 4 local commercial ctrs (close enough to shops, restaurants, banks & bars, but far enough not to be bothered by noise). Built & fully furnished to a high standard with secure private parking. Overlooks the beautiful large triple communal Pool. The villa stands at a high point in this prestigious development, & so enjoys commanding spectacular views of the sea & mature greenery. It is set in it's own private, secure gardens with orange & lemon trees & kids play equipment incl. trampoline. 3 double bedrooms (master with en-suite and memory foam king size bed), plus large twin 4th bedroom, & occasional 5th double bedroom (also playroom) gives flexibility to sleep 8-10 (max. 6 adults). 2.5 bathrooms, 4 sun terraces, incl. private rooftop solarium. The villa is secure, comfortable, and is like visiting home from home. Large conservatory & patio. Walk-through video at www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha99ZHcmTys
General: An ideal holiday for the young family with several water parks nearby, including the Aquopolis in Torrevieja.
Down the coast is the beautiful Mar Menor inland sea. Ideal for water-sports, and for taking in traditional 'old' Spain in the towns of Santiago de Ribera, Los Alcazares and Lo Pagan. A little further down is the world famous La Manga Club with its amazing golf and leisure facilities.
The newly opened Zenia Boulevard is a mecca of shopping and gastronomy. It is one of the largest and most luxurious shopping experiences in Spain, and it is just 5 minutes drive from the villa.
Nearby the traditional Spanish town of Torrevieja offers lots of facilities including a yachting marina and many and varied restaurants and bars. Also a childrens fair and street market (open every night), large Friday market and a good selection of shops. Fantastic sea front and beaches. Submarine museum too.
Also the famous (free!) mud baths are only a fifteen minute drive in Lo Pagan. Cake yourself in therapeutic mud whilst the flamingos look on bemused!
Historic Cartegena is about an hour away to the south and Alicante 45mins to the north, Orihuela and Murcia cities are 45mins inland.
There is also tennis at Villamartin, and Bowls at the Emerald Club.
Beaches: There are a wide variety of top quality beaches, all awarded the EEC Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety, all within 5-15 minutes drive. The most famous of these is Guardamar Beach with its spectacular sand dunes covered with pines and eucalyptus - the setting is one of the most unique scenes in Valencia. Locally, the sandy beaches at Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cala Capitain, Campoamor and Cabo Roig are a must for all sun seekers, with beach bars and restaurants, plus volleyball and children's play areas, and those all important sun beds. Most beaches have childrens play frames and equipment. Snorkelling is great at many beaches, especially Playa Flamenca. And surfing is popular too, with kids body-boarding and even serious malibu boarding. Fishing is very popular off the rocks.
Climate and weather: Obviously Spain is famous for its virtually guaranteed sunny weather all year round, with beautifully warm weather in the summer months. And there are very few rainy days between November and March, during which time you can expect blue skies and temperatures in the low to mid 20’s (tee shirt and shorts weather!). According to the World Health Organisation this area of the Costa Blanca has got the healthiest climate in Europe, and is one of the healthiest places in the world to live. Asthma and rheumatism sufferers especially will notice the benefits.
Air conditioning - for the avoidance of doubt, the villa does NOT have air conditioning. All bedrooms are on the ground floor, which makes them naturally cooler, plus all bedrooms have ceiling fans which are adequate for most people in all but exceptionally hot conditions.
Pool - the pool is communal, not private. It is however very close by - approximately 30m - and can be seen from the rear terrace and rooftop solarium.

About the Owner
We are a family of 4, with 2 boys. We bought the villa as a home from home in the sun, and as a long term investment for our retirement.

Probably my best holidays. A very nice trip, a very nice house, swimming pool was perfect.... I think we will come back.... Thnaks you for all. For your mail before our departure and for the assistance in the house... It's was simply perfect!...
Lovely location nice and central nice villa maybe as it sleeps 10 my only advice is that it needed more bedding etc as we were sharing pillows etc. Other than that really nice holiday. As I used to live there myself we were celebrating a friends 70th who lives there and own a bar in Rioja. Will book again
Lovely villa in a convenient position
We had a lovely 9 days at the Villa. Paul, the owner was very helpful providing lots of information. He also left us a welcome pack of food and drink which was much appreciated. There was plenty of room for us (4 adults, and two toddlers). The pool was 2 minutes away and we spent lots of time there, even though the water was cold, the children loved it, and it was very quiet.
The villa is within walking distance of plenty of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. It was a smashing holiday.
From the second we walked in we were amazed, all this is for us. Well furnished and homely. All the outside space was a real bonus, the roof terrace was my favourite spot at night, cool beer, sun lounger and very hot night air. The shared pool was very quiet most of the time which made us feel it was just ours. If we all go away again (10 of us) would definitely try to book this place before looking else where.
Well situated, appointed villa
The villa easily slept 6 adults and 2 children comfortably, and toilets on all levels was an added bonus.
There was adequate space for all to lounge around in the sunshine any time of the day.
The pool was suitable for both the kids and adults and is situated a minutes walk from the villa - need to take your own sun beds with you and have to return to the villa for toilets.
A very wide choice of restaurants at 2 separate locations were within walking distance though with younger children it was easier to use the car as there was free parking nearby.
The nearest beach could be walked to but again the use of the car was preferred by us.
A nearby shopping centre was well worth a visit with plenty for the children and adults alike.
Great house, a real home away from home.
We were 2 families of 9 in total. Plenty of room for all. All facilities well kept. Loads of glasses, utensils and tableware. Unlimited wifi so helpful for today's kids and teens.
Lovely views from rear terrace and rooftop. Sun at rear in the mornings. We often made fresh lemonade from the lemon tree in the garden. Large triple pool almost next door which we often had to ourselves. Kept kids occupied for hours an hours.
All necessary necessary shopping, dining, entertainment within a short walk or drive. Car is strongly advised. Lovely Italian and Indian short walk away. Quiet and relaxing area.
Whole house exterior had just been painted so brilliant white everywhere. Will hopefully return again sometime in the future.
From the Owner
“When you are on holiday you want your accommodation to be at least as good as when you are at home. This gives us - and you - the luxury of a detached house with lots of space and privacy. Plus the location is excellent. There is so much to do. We have been holidaying there several times a year for many years and we never get bored!”
Activity and Interests
A short 3 minutes walk takes you to the Los Dolses and Rioja commercial centres, which have a large well stocked supermarket, banks, shops, internet cafes, plus many bars and restaurants. The famous Villamartin Plaza is a 10-15 minute walk away and has a multitude of restaurants and bars, shops & a supermarket. La Zenia Blue Flag beach is just 2 miles away.
Torrevieja is a hive of life and culture and is just a 15 minute drive away. It has many attractions including a wonderful sea front with beaches, bars and restaurants. There is a funfair (dreat for the kids!) and a market which are both open every night in the summer months. There is a submarine museum at the marina, which also has some truly spectacular sunsets which you can enjoy from the classy bars and restaurants.
The local area provides for just about every leisure and pleasure including snorkelling, waterskiing, jet skiing, sailing, fishing, caving, shopping, water parks, cinemas, bowling alley, golf, etc.
Other Activities: relaxing, eating out, nightlife.
Golf: 3 superb golf courses, 1 of which is within walking distance:
1. Villamartin Golf Club. Championship par 72 course, opened in 1972, hosted 1984 Mediterranean Open and Spanish Open in January 2000. Classic, world-famous championship golf course. A 'must-play' course.
2. Campoamor Golf Club. .Par 72, opened 1989. Extremely Popular. Lovely restaurant with fantastic views.
3. Las Ramblas Golf Club. Par 72, opened in 1991. Arguably even more spectacular than Villamartin.
There are also another six golf clubs within a 10-20 minute drive, including LA FINCA (10-minute drive) 18 holes, 6049 yards, par 72.
