Los Altos Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Overlooking pool, sleeps 4, air con & TV close to all amenities

Stylish, quality, ground floor apartment, built in 2006 to a unique design. Quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

Traffic-free development is quiet, relaxing for you, safe for your kids.

Fully furnished apartment with air conditioning in the lounge and main double bedroom. There is a computer enabled 40' Flat Screen TV, Wi-Fi, DVD player and radio/CD player and iPod dock. Extensively equipped kitchen including a dishwasher to save you washing up!

The en-suite bathroom has a shower, & bath, whilst the main shower room has, shower, bidet, toilet & washbasin.

The main bedroom is a double and the second bedroom has twin single beds.

The patio/terrace overlooks the gated communal pool. A 5 minute stroll takes you to the main shopping, restaurants and bars and recently opened Punta Marina commercial centre.The beach is a 10 minute stroll away straight down the road. You will find numerous bars and restaurants within easy walking distance, Torrevieja and the famous beaches of La Zenia and Cabo Roig are just 5 minutes drive.

Further afield Benidorm is an hour and a half drive.

Golf Courses in the Area: 'Villamartin is one of the best courses in Spain, probably the best in this region and also hosted the Spanish Open' Fore! magazine January 2000.

Las Ramblas, the incredible water hazards-the ramblas-which make this golf course different from all the others in the area. Take plenty of balls. You'll need them'. Fore! magazine January 2000.

La Finca, a new course opened in 2002.

Campoamour, built in two valleys, lush fairways and fast greens with palm, pine and orange trees. Very smart clubhouse restaurant and bars.

All these courses are about 10-15 miles away. Personally I prefer the sun, sea and sandy beaches to the greens but there are plenty of greens to go at!

Go-karting & Water Parks: There is a good Go-Karting circuit a mile down the N332 which is absolutely great fun for kids of all ages.

For a great day out there is the water park in Torrevieja. Keep costs down by taking your own picnic and enjoy the water flumes and slides. There are videos of what to expect on you tube if you do a search on Torrevieja water park Aquapolis. If you look hard enough you can usually find some discount vouchers on the entry fees.

Terra Mitica In Benidorm is 75 minutes away and well worth a visit especially is you want to keep the kids amused.

Eating out: You don't go on holiday to do the cooking. The kitchen is fully equipped with all that you need to cook if you want to, but there are plenty of restaurants offering menus from all parts of the globe in Torrevieja. WithIn easy walking distance are enough restaurants to last a week without eating in the same place twice. There is an impressive looking Japanese/Chinese restaurant housed in a traditional Chinese pagoda type building about 500m down the road if you want a special celebration meal. Patio Andaluz is a Spanish restaurant that enjoys an excellent reputation amongst the locals, you need to book early. If it is your birthday, Puccini's will feed you for free! (Groups of 4 or more). If you drive up to Villamartin Plaza (10 minutes tops) there are umpteen restaurants, and I'd recommend going at least once. Eduardo's is quite a nice place but they are all of a good standard and the plaza itself does have a bit of a buzz about it. .

About Gareth Griffith

Janet and I have been married for quite a few years and now that the mortgage on our home in England came to an end bought this apartment to benefit from cheap flights and the Spanish sun shine. Janet and I both love walking in the Derbyshire Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales with our black Labrador Belle. We love the English pubs and would never leave England for good but the British Winter isn't as good as it could be and as Janet is a sun lover and I like the beaches, Spain was a good choice.

Gareth Griffith purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Gareth Griffith chose Los Altos

These apartments are of a higher quality than most and they benefit from having well maintained gardens and pools. The location is brilliant. On the urbanisation it is right in front of the pool and enjoys full sunshine in the morning and the benefit of shade when it is too hot in the afternoon.

If you want sun in the afternoon it is easy to nip over into the pool area.

There local amenities are all close by but not so close that they create any noise nuisance.

It is our holiday home too. We have done our best to ensure that it has all the things that we need to have a comfortable holiday and that the fixtures and fittings are of a decent standard.

Flights to and from Alicante or Murcia airport are readily available throughout the year at reasonable cost from almost all UK airports.

We also visit off peak and visit Murcia, Valencia, Benidorm and even Granada when the weather is not at sunbathing standard!

What makes this apartment unique

There is nothing unique about this property. There are lots of similar apartments but very few have all the fixtures and fittings that come as standard in our apartment.

The community is very multicultural and everyone has a smattering of English

Holidays in May 2009

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was perfect, spotless and very well equipped. The location was great, directions from Alicante airport were spot on, we got there with no detours! The complex was very secure and child friendly as cars were parked outside the locked gates.The pool being directly in front of the apartment was perfect as the kids were able to be seen from the patio.This meant we could relax and not have to be in at all times, we would have been like prunes! There were supermarkets and a variety of places to eat within a few minutes walk. The beach was about 10 minutes walk although we had hired a car and ventured to other beaches further afield. We would recommend a car to take advantage of the coastal resorts close by.There is an information folder within the apartment which was full of great information about what to do, where and when to go. This was a great source of very useful information, thanks Garreth.We would highly recommend this apartment to friends and family. We all had a fantastic holiday and look forward to returning sometime in the future.

Owner's Response: The apartment is well equipped because it is our holiday home too. We think the apartment is the best located on the development for the views and access to the pool. You're right to recommend hiring a car, it isn't expensive and it gives you access to the best beaches/tourist attractions.
I'm pleased you found the information folder useful. We want our guests to get the best they can out of their holiday and it always helps to have a pointer in the right direction.

Very nice, peaceful and clean apartment

  • 4 of 5
We chose this apartment because of the location (based on the map - we had never been in this area before) and also because of the beautiful and many photographs of the apartment and the surroundings. I liked it even more when we were there. From the time of booking and the additional questions we had, the owner was very helpful and quick in his answers so we were very confident in choosing this apartment. My husband and I travelled with our youngest (18yr old) daughter and it was great that she could walk by herself to the nearby small shopping area or the big Chinese shopping centers. the location was excellent, we could easily drive to many places and I was surprised that it was also within walking distance of the grocery store and many restaurants, and the beach also.
The apartment was very nicely furnished and well kept. The area was very peaceful and we felt very safe there. The neighbours were friendly and the small yard was enough.
The apartment was easy to find with the directions we got and the key holder was very helpful also. I really would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting this area if you are looking for a peaceful location with easy access to anywhere in Torrevieja and Orihuela area. Great parking areas for your car as well. And also we really enjoyed the heater and for the first time in Spain (6th time for our family) we were not cold inside :) So very happy with our choice !

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments.

The weather in Spain during the winter can be warm and sunny during the day but can be quite chilly in the evening and hence our investment in good quality airconditioning that cools in summer and warms in winter.

We chose the apartment because of its' location. It has all the shops, bars and restaurants within easy walking distance but far enough away to be peaceful and quiet.

Our key-holders do a very good job looking after our guests as they believe, like we do, that it is important that people enjoy the time that they spend on their holdiday.

Lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from a lovely holiday here. The apartment was really nice and very clean.
We were two 20 year olds just looking for a relaxing holiday in the sun and this w
s the perfect place for it. The pool is very clean and a lovely place to spend the day and the apartment is well situated close to plenty of restaurants, bars and the supermarket. - our favourite places to visit were Puccinis and the Sunrise cafe where we went most nights to enjoy a cocktail by the sea!

The apartment and location provide an excellent holiday for whatever it is you are looking for.

Owner's Response: We're glad you liked it and had a good hoiiday. If you want a busy action packed holiday there's lots to do but if you just want to chill by the pool and relax, you can do that too! Puccini's is also one of our favourites.

Home from Home!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here with our young family (aged 3 and 1) in mid March and had an absolutely fantastic stay. The appartment is full of the home comforts that we always wished other appartments had- washing machine, clean comfortable beds and sofa and every kitchen utensil imaginable! We enjoyed breakfast on the sunny patio over- looking the pool every morning- the snow in Scotland felt a million miles away!
There is a large supermarket within two minutes walk as well as a number of excellent restraunts and pubs serving a good variety of food. The beach was a twenty minute walk for us as the kids walk slowly!- the beach was very clean and our girls spent most of the time building sandcastles and paddling in the sea.
The temperature was in the low 20s each day whoich we were delighted about- we booked the trip hoping to get some family time together and had said any sun would be a bonus- we got a bonus every day of our stay!
We stayed in the local area the full week and didnt hire a car. There is lots to do in the area and a couple of kids play parks- the pool was cold as you would expect from this time of year but it didnt stop the gilrs from occassioanlly paddling in the kids section of the pool.
Thanks to Steve for picking us up and getting us back to the airport in plenty of time to return to the snow!

Thanks also to Gareth and Janet for aranging the baby cot and chair and allowing us to share their lovely holiday appartment. We had a fantastic family holiday in a home from home and were delighted with the amazing climate. We WILL be back!

Owner's Response: We're glad you had a good time. We do our best to make the apartment as comfortable as possible as we use it too! We regularly go in March to catch some sunshire ahead of the English spring and we are happy that you had good weather whilst we froze under inches of snow at home.

we stayed again and loved it, Has everything we need, GREAT APARTMENT
Everything within walking distance ,plus keeps us fit , cant be doing with the buses, quicker to walk, or just jump in taxi.
great for young kids, mine 2-4 loved the pool , and older kids love the fun park along road, The hamster balls are a must , but go in evening, like sauna daytime.

nice places to eat local, or about 20 mins walk got about 30 plus places to eat
and another funfare for kids .

Steve was great for picking us up and bringing clean towels covers etc ( he will be missed )
We booked some local coachtrips , so got to places like Alicante, Benidorm and Murcia (great shopping centre even got Primark in it )
Hope to come back next year

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from having a wonderful holiday at this apartment. The apartment is very well equipped, modern and clean. It was an added bonus that the pool was so close as we could see our eldest child from the terrace, she was never out the pool!! The pool never seems to be overcrowded either which was nice. We wondered if the air conditioning would cost but we couldn't believe how economical it was - hardly used any euros at all. We only really needed it at night and the fan was fine in the living area and the smaller bedroom.

It was nice that there was a few bits and pieces left (i.e. sugar, teabags, bin bags etc), unsure if this was leftover from previous holiday makers but a nice touch...

All in all a lovely apartment, we would return in the future.

Car: recommended

Los Altos is 10 min drive south of Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca . The apartment is on a development of Andalucian style, classy low rise buildings about 500 metres from the N332 coast road. Our apartment overlooks the communal pool and has its own small garden. Local amenities at Punta Prima are all within very easy walking distance. A car isn't essential but would certainly add to your holiday as there are loads of great beaches within 10 minutes drive, Cabo Roig and La Zenia are two favourites.Further afield the historic cities of Cartagena, Elche Orihuela & Murcia are all worth a visit. If you prefer to use public transport there's an hourly bus service to Torrevieja. Further afield (about 40 min drive) there are the unspoilt, very scenic beaches at Calblanque with water so clear you can see fishes swimming round your feet. The Mar Menor and La Manga also merit exploring on a day trip. There are good motorway connections to both Alicante and Murcia Airport.

Other Activities: tennis courts 500m down the road, Go-Kart 1500m

Golf: You might want to book in advance from home to make sure you get to play where you want to, when you want to. Villamartin, Las Ramblas, Campoamor and La Finca are the names to look out for. If you have the inclination to travel further La Manga is about 30-40 minutes to the south.

The views over Campoamor are very nice and the terrace is a great place to have a beer and watch the sun go down.

If you aren't a golf fan just lie on the beaches and get some Costa Blanca sunshine whilst your partner enjoys some superb courses.

There is a hire shop locally if you can't bring your own clubs.

Ski: You can hire Jet Skis and speed boats at Cabo Roig Marina which is about 10 minutes to the south.

There are some bars and restaurants that the rest of the family can sit at and watch you having fun in the sun. Beware of having a drink before you try to hire your boat as they won't hire you any equipment if they feel that you've had an alcoholic beverage or two! Terry Wogan had a place in Cabo Roig but don't let that put you off as he's sold up and moved on.

You can get to Cabo Roig by following the Coastal Path but it is a long walk!

This lovely apartment is furnished with the best quality furniture package from the highly thought of Masquemeubles emporium which also furnished the show house on this prestigious development. The patio doors lead on to the large patio which is equipped with table and chairs overlooking the garden, and communal pool area. The patio area has built-in down lighters to provide ambient lighting for your evening drinks when the sun has gone down. Cool-box with four ice packs for your jolly picnics on the beach but please bring your own beach towels. The apartment is strictly non smoking inside. The apartment is on the ground floor but there are four steps to the front door and nine from the patio to the lawn which may prove difficult for wheelchair users. 2011 We had to introduce a meter for the use of the air-conditioning units due to some guests taking advantage of unlimited use to run them constantly. The meter takes 1€ and 2€ coins and is very economical to run.
