3 bed 2 bath house La Marina
The house is situated midway between Alicante and Torrevieja – about a 25 minute drive from each. It is easily reached from both Alicante and Murcia airports. Valencia is another possibility – but you will need to allow 2 hours for the drive.
The house is 10 years old and in excellent condition. It is air conditioned and equipped with TV. (NB Satellite with the main English channels is available during the main summer months - please check for details). It has 3 bedrooms – one double and two twin rooms.
There is a shower room on the ground floor and a bathroom on the first floor. The kitchen comes well equipped with Cooker, Microwave, Washine Machine, Fridge, Iron, toaster etc.
There is a very large roof terrace equipped with sun loungers, table and chairs and barbeque.
There is a shopping mall about a 100 yards from the house and this includes a supermarket, banks, Tourist Information office, newsagent, several bars and restaurants. Therefore no shortage of places to go in the evenings should you not want to drive!
Places to See
There are numerous beaches nearby. The closest is La Marina and this is just 10 minutes away (by car). La Marina is recognised as one of the best beaches in the area – it is unspoilt and very popular with the locals. It has a beach bar – but little else. If you are looking for somewhere with more life, there are a number of resorts – like Santa Pola and Guardamar – nearby. These resorts are livelier – but certainly not in the Benidorm league!
Places to see – Just a few places that are well worth a visit.
Alicante is a must! It has a large shopping centre, an historic ‘old’ town with castle and a lovely harbourside. The marina at night is well worth a visit – lots of very nice restaurants!
Torrevieja – a smaller, quieter version of Alicante - but still very nice. There is a ‘craft fair’ on the waterfront at most times.
Elche – a bustling and prosperous city with an historic old centre.
For those who are happy to look further afield, Benidorm (and the Terra Mitica theme park) is an hour away by car – and Valencia approximately 100 miles away.
How to get around
I may be able to arrange transport between the airport and the house if required – but I would highly recommend the hire of a car. A bus service does run (Monday to Saturday) between the Urbanizacion and La Marina, Elche, Guardamar and Torrevieja during the summer season. Timetables can be picked up from the local Tourist Information office.
