General:: An ideal holiday for the young family with several water parks nearby, including the Aquopolis in Torrevieja.
Down the coast is the beautiful Mar Menor inland sea. Ideal for watersports, and for taking in traditional 'old' Spain in the towns of Santiago de Ribera, Los Alcazares and Lo Pagan. A little further down is the world famous La Manga Club with its amazing golf and leisure facilities.
The newly opened Zenia Boulevard is a mecca of shopping and gastronomy. It is one of the largest and most luxurious shopping experiences in Spain, and it is just 5 minutes drive from the villa.
Nearby the traditional Spanish town of Torrevieja offers lots of facilities including a yachting marina and many and varied restaurants and bars. Also a childrens fair and street market (open every night), large Friday market and a good selection of shops. Fantastic sea front and beaches. Submarine museum too.
Also the famous (free!) mud baths are only a fifteen minute drive in Lo Pagan. Cake yourself in therapeutic mud whilst the flamingos look on bemused!
Historic Cartegena is about an hour away to the south and Alicante 45mins to the north, Orihuela 45mins inland.
There is also tennis at Villamartin, and Bowls at the Emerald Club.
Beaches:: There are a wide variety of top quality beaches, all awarded the EEC Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety, all within 5-15 minutes drive. The most famous of these is Guardamar Beach with its spectacular sand dunes covered with pines and eucalyptus - the setting is one of the most unique scenes in Valencia. Locally, the sandy beaches at Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cala Capitain, Campoamor and Cabo Roig are a must for all sun seekers, with beach bars and restaurants, plus volleyball and children's play areas, and those all important sun beds. Most beaches have childrens play frames and equipment. Snorkelling is great at many beaches, especially Playa Flamenca. And surfing is popular too, with kids body-boarding and even serious malibu boarding. Fishing is very popular off the rocks.
Climate and weather: Obviously Spain is famous for its virtually guaranteed sunny weather all year round, with beautifully warm weather in the summer months. And there are very few rainy days between November and March, during which time you can expect blue skies and temperatures in the low to mid 20’s (tee shirt and shorts weather!). According to the World Health Organisation this area of the Costa Blanca has got the healthiest climate in Europe, and is one of the healthiest places in the world to live. Asthma and rheumatism sufferers especially will notice the benefits.

About Paul Brown
We are a family of 4, with 2 boys. We bought the villa as a home from home in the sun, and as a long term investment for our retirement.
Paul Brown purchased this villa in 2002
Why Paul Brown chose Villamartin
When you are on holiday you want your accommodation to be at least as good as when you are at home. This gives us - and you - the luxury of a detached house with lots of space and privacy. Plus the location is second to none. There is so much to do. We have been holidaying there several times a year for many years and we never get bored!
What makes this villa unique
We spend most of our time on the rear terrace. Its such a relaxing place to be with commanding views and lots of sun. Bliss!
