Torrevieja is situated just 40 minutes drive south of Alicante airport and 25 minutes drive from Murcia (San Javier) airport. This old town with its attractive marina and port has a warm welcoming ambiance and will surely appeal to those who look for a relaxing pace of life in the true Spanish style. Our properties are situated in 'Flamingo Hills', Playa Flamenca which is close to many sandy beaches and coves. We are also in close proximity to a choice of bars, restaurants and top class golf courses. All of these two bedroom villas are decorated in modern Mediterranean style, each consisting of a spacious lounge/dining room, fully fitted kitchen, bathroom with bath and overhead shower, private gardens, terraces and a front patio. One property is situated in front of the swimming pool and the others are just a few steps away. These properties are ideal for families. They are South facing which is great for winter sunshine. (We also have a further selection of 2 & 3 bedroom villas available).
Restaurants and shops: Within 5 minutes walking distance there are many restaurants, bars and supermarkets. The huge Playa Flamenca Saturday market is also within 15 minutes walking distance where you can purchase fresh fruit and vegetables, leather goods, clothes, perfect for buying gifts for your family and friends. There are also several supermarkets within 15 minutes walking distance. Torrevieja, the town centre, is only a 10 minute drive away. It is a great place for shopping, taking a walk along the promenade or just sitting in one of the many outside cafes sampling the local “tapas” and watching the world go by.
Places of interest : Situated just 28 miles south of Alicante airport and 20 miles north of Murcia airport, Torrevieja, which derives its name from the Old Tower, is still essentially a fishing community whose port houses one of Spains largest fishing fleets. Boat trips to the Island of Tabarca and short trips along the coast are available from the Marina. Torrevieja also has large salt lagoons with a wealth of bird life and is also one of the oldest and most important salt producing centres in Europe. This old town with its attractive marina and port has a warm welcoming ambiance and will surely appeal to those who look for a relaxing pace of life in the true Spanish style. Shops, markets, fun-fair, bars and restaurants are available in plenty and cater for all tastes and pockets. There is a daily Craft market open until late evening down by the Marina. The Aquopolis aqua park is a great day out for the whole family and is open from June - September. There is something for everyone and and for all ages.
Useful information : We can arrange airport transfers for you at competitive prices. We can also arrange cot & high chair hire. Please contact us for more information.
We have just spent a lovely 10 days at Jackie & Steves Property in Flamingo Hills 1.
There is plenty of open space with the patio at the front (where we used to have breakfast), and a court yard at the back.
There is also the large roof terrace, with the important bit for me, the internal stairs to the roof. This saves having to keep locking and unlocking the front door as you would with external stairs every time you go up and down.
The property has everything you need to make for a pleasant holiday, although a bonus would be a couple of beach chairs for use on the beach.
The propery is in the perfect location for bars, resturants and supermarkets.
We would certaintly stay again and reccomend to friends.
