About the property

Villa, La Marinas, Costa Blanca - 20 mins Alicante Airport, 5 Mins Beach, Shops and Restaurants Walking Distance

The villa is 12 years old and tastefully furnished, with central heating and aircon, Satellite TV and stereo. The main bedroom is very large with a balcony and the other bedrooms have two single beds. The villa is detached with a carport and the outside is tastefully tiled. The villa has a shared pool with 29 houses but the pool does not get too crowded as most of the people are second home owners. There is a barbecue and outdoor furniture for your use. The beautiful beach is 5 mins away by car, there is a bus that takes you direct to the beach during the main holiday period. There are many other beautiful sandy beaches nearby. There are two parts to the Marina, the old high street is mainly Spanish and the urbanisation is all nationalities. There are numerous golf courses nearby, also the well known Villamartin. Nearby is Guardamar, Torrevieja, Santa Pola, Elche and Benidorm. Local car hire can be arranged at good rates. There is also Go-Karting, and Waterparks nearby.

About Gillian Cervello

I am a lady who bought her villa in Spain in 2000. I live in England close Bournemouth. I have two children and two grandchildren and a Husky dog. I work as a secretary. In the past I worked for British Airways for many years and have travelled quite a lot. I use my villa in Spain 4 to 5 times per year. There is everything you would need at the villa - home from home holiday and more.

Gillian Cervello purchased this in 2000

Why Gillian Cervello chose Torrevieja Area

In the year 2000 I was looking on the Costa Blanca to buy a property. I fell in love with my villa at first sight. However, as this was my first viewing I continued to look on the Costa Blanca for a property. After a week of viewing properties this was the best villa. The beach is fantastic, behind the beach is a pine forest. There are a few bars and restuarants on the beach but not too many.

What makes this unique

The property is 5 minutes drive to the beautiful beach. The shops and restaurants are a few minutes walk from the villa. The villa is on a private estate of 29 houses and has a private road. The communal pool is well maintained and is never too busy as it is for the 29 houses only and most people are second home owners.

There is everything at the villa you can take to the beach, i.e. cool box, containers, chairs.

The villa is only 20 minute drive from Alicante airport along a straight road (N332) and can be found very easily. Mucia airport is about 45 minutes drive.

La Marina is well established and has a lot to offer its residents in the way of entertainment. The beautiful Blue Flag sandy beach at La Marina stretches for about 17 kilometres from Santa Pola to Torrevieja.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Gillian, Just wanted to drop you a quick thank you for the use of your lovely home in La Marina. We had a wonderfull, relaxing break, with fabulous weather from dawn till dusk the entire time we were there, but what made the holiday complete was the accomodation. I would go back tomorrow if I could, it was fantastic and I can see why you chose it. My wife and I are already discussing next year and if your house is available. Regards. David Burch

Hi Gillian, Just wanted to thank you, we had a really good time at your villa. The villa is lovely with everything you need for a great holiday we felt at home straight away. The weather was really hot, the pool was ideal and we loved the beach. Thank you, Janet & Laurie Mckeown xx

Hi Gillian, Just back from Spain and would like to thank you for letting us lease your lovely Villa. It was ideal for what we needed and the location was fantastic. I will recommend your place to friends. Hope you don't mind. Thanks. Anne.

Really enjoyed our stay at this villa, which was very spacious for 4 adults, 2 children and an infant. Everything was provided for and we only needed to bring our clothes and beach towels! A very warm welcome by the owner, Gillian and would not hesitate to book again. The pool area was excellent and secure for families of the villas its provides for. Plenty to do around the surrounding area, and within walking distance. The beach is 10 mins away by car.

Amazing Holiday! Incredible Villa

  • 5 of 5

On arrival at the villa we were overwhelmed by how big it was! set in a quiet residential area we knew straight away we were going to have a peaceful, relaxing holiday! On entering the villa we were so impressed with how homely it felt. with large airy rooms, 3 balconies, modern bathrooms and beautiful marble staircase it feels like real luxury. The villa was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. Lots of fluffy towels in the bathrooms, everything you could want for self catering in the kitchen etc. Really impressed with how many outdoor seating areas there are and plenty of space for our hire car to be off road.

The villa is right by the pool. The pool and pool patio area are always beautifully clean, with plenty of sunbeds. Most days we shared the pool with only a few other families.

The local area is fantastic! lots of really lovely restaurants, bars, supermarkets, local market twice a week, and a fantastic beach.

Within a short drive there are lots of pretty Spanish towns, Harbours, Waterparks.

We had the best holiday! Gillian was such a fantastic host and I would 100%reccomend the villa as a great base for your holiday!....we hope to return again next year!

Ideal for family

  • 5 of 5

Perfect property for a family holiday, the house is fully equipped and we couldn't want for more. The house is close to the pool and beaches are a 5 minute drive away.

Local restaurants and bars are all within walking distance and offer a good variety.
