This is the second time I Have stayed at this apartment and would highly recommend this to anyone.

The apartment is only a few minutes walk to Villamartin Plaza which has excellent bars and restaurants.

Also 5 minutes walk to Villamartin golf course which was in excellent condition.

Chemies Lounge is a nice little bar to finish the night off before returning to the apartment.

Steve and Angela are excellent and are only a phone call away.

Thanks again Peter and lou we will be back next years.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments - we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. There are so many good restaurants and bars to visit that the choice is difficult but we have recently had some very good comments about Chemies. Although not golfers ourselves, it is always good to have input about the Villamartin Golf Course. We are lucky that Steve and Angela work so hard to make sure our guests are well looked after and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. Best wishes Lou & Peter

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at Casa Lou, made even better by lovely weather in March. We have been to the Villamartin area before but the directions were spot on. Despite arriving late in the day we were met by Steve who gave us the instructions for everything we needed to know. The apartment has everything that you would need for a stay. The roof top solarium was an added bonus and the apartment is in a well-established complex but very quiet.

The location is great for bars and restaurants - there are a couple of bars and an Italian restaurant (La Dolce Vita – which we can highly recommend) within a couple of minutes’ walk and then the Villamartin Plaza a 5 minute walk away with a wide variety of bars and restaurants (the Club House was one of our favourites). There is a small supermarket at the Plaza where you can get all the basics although there’s a bigger one about a mile away in Los Dolses. Whilst we hired a car, you could get by without one.

On this trip we didn’t go very far but there are lots of lovely beaches and places to visit of historical value not far away but you’d probably need a car to get to these.

We would highly recommend the apartment and will definitely think of using the apartment again in the near future.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your great review and we are pleased that you had a good time. Steve and Angela, our agents, are an important integral part of our team, on hand to assist where required, full of local knowledge, and making sure that holiday makers really get the most out of their holiday. We feel that the combination of the quiet nature of the complex and the proximity of the nearby restaurants and bars, all within easy walking distance, are ideal for a relaxing holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back to the apartment in the future. .

Great Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this lovely apartment for two weeks last January and like it so much we came back for six weeks this time! All the previous reviews express our thoughts exactly, so no need to repeat them.

We had a wonderful six weeks. To sit outside in the sunshine in tee shirts in December/January was a lovely feeling. Nearly all the restaurants are still open at the Plaza and Chemies is a great stop off on the way home. We went to a carol service there with mulled wine and mince pies. Christmas Day on La Zenia beach is not to be missed. Even the dogs have Santa outfits on! As everyone who has been to the apartment knows how fantastic the view is from the solarium. Watching the firework displays from there on New Year's eve was amazing.

The whole six weeks was an outdoor life and we came home with great memories. Would recommend to anyone to try it.

Thank you Peter and Lou for the experience. Another great stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you both for your great review – we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay this winter – we always think that a holiday in the sunshine in the winter makes the weather seem more bearable when we go back in the UK and certainly the sunshine lifts the spirits! We are very lucky to have the solarium which gives privacy when sunbathing but also wonderful views during the day time and a spectacular viewpoint for fireworks in the evening. We look forward to welcoming you back to our apartment one day in the future.

Wonderful apartment,great holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment the agent,Steve, opened the door for us (very nice guy and helpful...pity he`s a United fan but ,look, nobody`s perfect) we knew we had chosen the perfect place to stay.

First impressions are always the best and we were so impressed.

What met us was a comfortable ,airy well lit apartment which overlooked a pristine swimming pool set in well manicured greenery. An absolute haven which during our stay was condusive to many hours of peaceful relaxation. The tranquility was almost tangible!

We found during our stay in Casa Lou that the apartment had everything we could have needed including good wi-fi and the most comfortable bed i have slept in for years!

The location was perfect for us, the supermarket and restaurant only a few minutes walk and 2 bars just 2 minutes walk away which we really appreciated on the night of our arrival!!

We visited La Zenia and the boulevard a couple of times which is only a short taxi journey (the Argentinian restaurant is not to be missed!) and the town of Torrevieja is definitely worth a visit.

All in all i would have no hesitation of recommending this lovely apartment or the area to anyone wishing to visit and all being well, with the good grace of the owners, we`ll be back for more of the same.

A perfect home from home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have become regulars now to Villamartin and having visited numerous times since 2009 and we "discovered" this apartment last year. We have just returned following our second visit. The location is absolutely ideal being close to the heart of the urbaniseation and to the Plaza, yet blissfully quiet at all times of the day and night. and I don't believe it can be bettered. There are outstanding views from the lounge over the pool and far beyond towards the coast, and even more spectacular views from the huge and very private roof terrace. The apartment is extremely well equipped and very comfortable with everything required for a relaxing stay and excellently presented. Meet and greet with Steve ( and departure) has been first class, and he and Angela are on hand to assist efficiently and promptly with any issues which may occur. The sun is on the small front balcony for breakfast and mid morning coffee and on the roof terrace all day long where 4 loungers, a large dining table, parasol and chairs and a built in barbecue make time spent up there with a good book and a cold drink ( or snoozing quietly) an absolute joy.

A car is essential as the many beaches ( several blue flag) are a couple of miles away ( but very easily reached) and if it is not beach weather there are lots of interesting areas to visit well within an easy drive.

We like the apartment and the area so much we have already booked for next year !! Thoroughly recommended ( but not please when we want to stay there !!)
