About Ian Taylor

I have lived in Leeds all my life and I am married with a grown up family. We bought the house in Playa Flamenca so that we could enjoy sunny holidays and have always kept it as our own home from home.

Last year I decided to take early retirement and now have the time to arrange the letting of our house in Spain. It has not been let before and we have always treated it with care and looked after it.

Our own children have had some fantastic holidays in Playa Flamenca but they are travelling further afield now. It seems the right time to rent and let someone else have the opportunity to enjoy happy times there just like we did.

Ian Taylor purchased this villa in 1999

Why Ian Taylor chose Orihuela Area

We bought this property because it was well constructed in a Spanish style and the rooms are a decent size compared to others we looked at.

There are lots of good quality safe and clean beaches in the local area.

We enjoyed a day on the beach and then coming home for a dip in the lovely pool before enjoying a meal and playing games on the terrace.

The area become more developed as a holiday resort and there are now lots of things to do during the day and numerous bars and restaurants within walking distance to visit in the evening.

What makes this villa unique

It is located in a private gated community, its quiet and the locals, mostly British are friendly. The community pool is private for residents and guests only and is considered by locals to be the best one in the area.

Just returned from a great holiday in Playa Flamenca.We had a wonderful time,the villa was great,(with THE most comfortable beds ever!)had everything we needed to ensure a true home from home feel.The urbanisation was very quiet and the people around us very quickly became friends.There is a great holiday,chilled atmosphere and the pool was a delight,our daughter loved it and made many friends.The villa is in a great location,close to bars and restaurants but I would recommend a car for shopping at the several local supermarkets.I could go on and on but I would like to finish by saying a huge thankyou to the villa owners who made everything so easy,from initial enquiries to handover of the keys it was totally hassle free.So thankyou Ian for everything we had afabulous holiday in your villa and we will highly recommend your villa to anybody who wants a true spanish break.

It takes approx.20 mins to walk to the local Playa Flamenca beach. There are lots of other beaches along the coast all no more than 15mins by car. The beaches are first class with all amenities and life guards. They are free and the local council maintains them to a very high standard.


The nearest airport is Murcia [San Javier] it's about 25 mins by car door to door. Alicante airport is also close, about 35 mins drive time. The roads are excellent, mostly new. With a young family a hire car is a big help for getting about but for adults its certainly not needed, there are buses and plenty of taxis.


Torrevieja is the closest large town with a large promenade, board walk, fair, market and plenty of bars and restaurants on the sea front. There is a very good waterpark on the outskirts of Torrevieja but if you are happy to drive, Benidorm isn't much more than 1 hour away and the major attractions of Aqualandia and Terra Metica up there are worth the drive.

Further Details:

There are lots of supermarkets to choose from, all within walking distance [the property has a pull-along shopping trolley]. There is a major new shopping centre not far away, 5 mins by car, Zenia Boulevard with virtually every kind of shop and a bowling alley. Every Saturday there is street market only a 10 minute walk away.
