About Sarah Piper

Russell and Sarah live near Brighton with their two children. The property was purchased from New and has just had new curtains and sofa. We go to our property in Spain often and keep it painted and well maintained. We love to relax on the roof terrace and round the pool area, and as the pool is open till 10pm we often take the kids for a night swim, the pool is lit up.

Sarah Piper purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Sarah Piper chose Torrevieja Area

We originally bought in Spain because my husbands father had lived there for 30 years, and my husband spent most of his youth holidaying in Spain. It is a very easy place to get to with Alicante airport 40 mins drive and Murcia only 20 mins drive away. We mostly fly to Alicante as the flights are cheaper and there are more to chose from, that is from Gatwick our nearest airport. We have always hired a car as it is nice to drive to Altea Falls, north of Benidorm, the water park, and to explore some of the many coved beaches along the coast. It is not essential but helps if you want to see around the area.

What makes this apartment unique

There are many bars and restaurants near to us within a 3 min walk and although we are close we never experience any noise. There are a great range of restaurants a 10 minute walk 20 min walk away, lots of choice. The beach is exactly 1 mile away, so can be walked to. The pool with our apartment is really, in my opinion one of the best! see pics!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have repeat customers every year which speaks for itself. I also have a visitors book where people share their experiences, good places to visit, best resturants, water parks etc. Well worth a look and please feel free to add to it.

This apartment is in a great location, shops, beaches and restaurants all nearby.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is lovely and the location is superb, easy access to beaches all along the coast the closest being about a 5 minute drive(Playa Flamenca). We had a lovely two weeks and the pool is great for relaxing by, not too crowded but busy occasionally. Lots of restaurants nearby including the White Star at Punta Prima, Leonardos in the commercial centre and the Pappaya Tree also in the commercial centre which I would highly recommend but remember to book, Luna Rossa pizza restaurant is a short walk and I would certainly suggest you try one of their pizzas a family one should serve 3 people easily. La Zenia boulevard shopping centre is also worth a visit. Sarah was very helpful and communication very good prior to departure would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment or this location.

Great Villa in a central location

  • 4 of 5

This villa has everything you could need for a very pleasant stay. Enough room for 5, some English TV channels, bbq, washing machine, 2 minutes from pool.

It's central location means you really don't need a car if you like strolling around, but if you want to explore the area then hire one!

The Zeniamar CC is 5 minute stroll, the Citrus CC 10 mins, the main Playa Flamenca Cente is 15 min walk and even the Punta Prima CC is only 15 walk.

The only small flaw is the lack of air conditioning, however there were enough fans supplied, the a/c would just have been the icing on the cake.

Would we return to this villa? YES! The Zeniamar community is a lovely area and the pool area is beautiful and kept spotless.

Ifyou like walking you can easily walk from Punta Prima right along front to Playa Flamenca, La Zenia and Cabo Roig.

Ifyou want to walk inland Villamartin is around 25 Mins and has the local Plaza.

Player Flamenca, lots of lovely coved beaches near

Coast/Beach:

The beaches in this area are beautiful, there are several sandy coved beaches within walking distance and you could drive to a different one every day within 5-20 mins. Most of these beaches have toilets and beach bars / cafes. The sand is clean and fine, and on La Zenia beach you can hire peddle boats or jet skis.

Travel:

Alicante Airport is a 35 min drive, a taxi will cost approx 60 euros, but with a hire car a very easy route straight on the 332. I do have the name of a company that do airport pick ups, for less than taxi rides. Murcia airport is 20 mins drive, again easy route, however, this is a much smaller airport and therefore does not have so many flight, therefore they can be slightly more expensive.

Distances:

Playa Flamenca is very central, 1 mile from the nearest beach and about 2 miles from a fantastic new shopping mall called Zeniamar boulevard. Torrevieja (big Spanish town) centre is only a 10 minute drive away. It has a large shopping centre on four floors. There is a large water park in Torrevieja, easy to find and sign posted. The motorways are very good and you can reach Benidorm, Alicante, Elche, Orihuela, Cartegena, La Manga and Murcia with ease.

Further Details:

There are several different places to eat within a 5 - 15 min walk, from typical Spanish to pizza, Chinese, Italian etc. You also have a choice of supermarkets walking distance 10 min or some large ones a 5 min drive away. There are two large commercial centres a 10 min walk away with lots of restaurants, bar and supermarket. Here you will also find a cash point. There are lots of lovely places to visit in this area.
