About Gillian Mallett

Hi, My name is Gillian and I live in England. I have been visiting Torrevieja for 13 years now. So I know the area very well and have some good friends close by. I am a private landlady renting properties in the UK and also teach English as a Foreign Language.

Gillian Mallett purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Gillian Mallett chose Alicante Province and Costa Blanca

I bought the property when I was on holiday with a friend who already owned a property in Torrevieja. I fell in love with the town and the surrounding area. It is so lively and vibrant but is also peaceful. Over the years since 2003 I have made lots of good friends and my two best friends also own properties in Torrevieja.

The beaches are clean and safe. There are so many interesting and historical places to visit. I love walking along the shore line in the sun. I enjoy sitting on my terrace eating my breakfast in the sun. Also enjoyable is sitting with a glass of wine watching the sun disappear for the night. The facilities in Torrevieja are all that you would want on a holiday. There are not any high rise hotels so it is not full of package holiday makers.

What makes this bungalow unique

The property is convenient for supermarkets, restaurants and bars, all within walking distance. The bus stops across the road. It is only 5 mins by car into the town or to many beaches. I love to be able to choose a different restaurant to eat in each evening. What I also like are the restaurants on the beach where you can have ' Menu del Dia from 9 euros these are lunchtime menus. My roof terrace is extremely good for sunbathing privately. I hope you will treat my home as a 'home from home' and enjoy its Spanish ambience. Please leave it as you would wish to find it, I know accidents can happen but just let me know so it can be sorted for the next visitors. If there is something you want just let me know. I have good friends who look after the maintenance and the changeovers.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed here last year with my girlfriend and we had an awesome time. There are some excellent places to visit nearby including Guadalest, Elche (a town with the biggest palm forest in Europe) and the Algar falls (where the timote advert was filmed). The bungalow was very comfortable and everything that we needed was there. Linda and Stewart looked after us very well out there. The only thing missing which would be helpful would be wi-fi although there is a bar around the corner with internet access. Neil and Julia summer 2012. London.

We had two great weeks in the bungalow, everything we needed was avaiable, i would have enjoyed a private pool as the weather was so hot but could not have expected one for the price paid , which was exellent value,Great little pub at the top of the street with wi-fi. A big thank you to Linda & Stewart who were a great help on arrival. All in all a very enjoyable holiday. Martin & Lynda. Newcastle upon Tyne.
