About the Owner
My husband and I found Dolores to be a very easy place to make friends. the overall ambience is essencially Spanish.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This is a very clean, well equipped bungalow in the middle of farmland with wonderful views. The gardens & the pool are well maintained.
An ideal place to stay for a peaceful break, especially for animal lovers.
All the neighbours were friendly & helpful, the nearby supermarket provides everything you could need.
We visited the nearby dogs home to walk the dogs & were welcomed by the friendly staff.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & will definitly be returning in the near future.

Accommodation excellent everything we needed. Lovely pool, very peaceful and private. Short drive to town and shops. Ideal location for a family holiday sea and sandy beaches nearby
Relaxing Break away from it all
A lovely bungalow with all the facilities, didn't need for anything i.e. towels, washing facilities and toiletries. A lovey pool area with plenty of sunbeds and chairs where we spend many an hour chilling out. Beautiful farmland area with lovely mountain views. Headed towards the mountains one day and found the road signs easy to follow. Thanks to Rona who directed us to the supermarkets, she was warm and welcoming. If we came back to Delores again we would definitely stay here. Thanks Lorna and John
Private and relaxing
Enjoyed a week long stay in this lovely little bungalow. The gardens and pool area give lots of privacy and there are plenty of ares to sit out and enjoy the weather!
The pool in particular is great, decent size and private.
The bungalow has everything you need for your stay, lots of towels for personal use and for the pool. Also lots of little extras such as coolbox and BBQ are there.
The location is a short drive from Dolores, which has most things you need for a short stay. The owners have included a couple of menus from local restaurants in their welcome package.
Overall, a good place for exploring the area, close to beaches and towns and plenty to make your stay comfortable.
Wonderful place for a totally relaxing break
Arrived to find the bungalow was actually in the grounds of the owners villa which isn't totally clear from description but didn't make any difference to us, actually was lovely to speak to John, have him show us around and inform us where to find everything in the local area whilst providing a refreshing drink after our journey. Lovely touch to have some essential supplies in the fridge on arrival, both bungalow & pool area as described, amazingly warm & good sized pool much appreciated due to heatwave whilst we were there, John kindly added an extra parasol for some much needed shade. Would recommend La Marina beach, beautiful white sand with its beds, parasols & beach bar, only a 15 minute car ride away (again nice touch to have a cool box provided to take food/drinks with us to beach) and our favourite restaurant was Philippe Y Francine on the La Marina urbanization, both found thanks to directions from John. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting a get away from it all break yet with all amenities a short drive away. Many thanks to John & Lorna for a fab holiday.
Great half term break
We had a great stay over half term. The kids loved the pool & playing hide & seek in the gardens. Guardamar beach was only 20mins away and La Marina was only 25. Local supermarket had everything we needed for our BBQs most nights. Loved the mountain views at sunset. Free Internet & Sky TV kept us in touch with the UK. Highly recommend
A well equipped little finca in a neat colourful garden. Didnt want for anything. Caretaker close to hand and more than happy to impart local information tips and wrinkles.
Just a wee bit cold to use the super little pool this trip. Car needed to really get the most from the region which has everything to please all tastes.
From the Owner
“We first came to spain because we were advised that Dolores and the nearby region of Torrevieja is one of the healthiest places to live in the world due to the salt lakes, the lovely surroundings made us fall in love with the town and finally decided to purchase a property in the area. The local cities of Alicante and Torrevieja have lovely harbours with plenty of bars and restaurants there are also museums, castles and plenty of shops. After ten wonderful years we are returning to the UK because of family commitments.”
