About FRANK SISTO
Up to now I have lived in London until 5 years ago when I moved to Spain to care for my elderly parents who are both Spanish. I am located 30 miles north of Madrid and am enjoying the quieter life against the constant fast pace in London.
Why FRANK SISTO chose Torrevieja
I bought the apartment in 2008. Madrid has a climate of two extremes very dry and hot in the Summer and dry and cold in the Winter. I wanted an area that provided a pleasant climate, hot Summers and mild Winters. Punta Prima, south of Torrevieja Alicante has just what I was looking for. The area is beautiful with a selection of beaches and peaceful walks. Due to the mild temperatures there is an abundance of palm trees which catch the attention due to their size. The resort is easily accessible from Alicante Airport(45 minutes) San Javier Murcia Airport (25 minutes) Pick up service available on request ask when booking.
What makes this Apartment unique

Thank you so much for your kind words Jacqueline and Allan. I´m so glad that you enjoyed your holiday in Punta Prima I wish you both well with your plans to move. Please keep in touch and I hope that perhaps I might see you both again next year.
Well equipped, close to the beach and good local ammieneties
Frank is a very attentive host who couldn't have done enough for you. Fortunately we know the punta prima area and the development work going on, which might not suit everyone with the view from the balcony. There was a down side with the swimming pools as there was no area around the pools to sunbathe after a swim. There are lots of lovely restaurants and bars within easy walking distance of the apartment, it is a comfortable and ideal base to explore the area with a good bus service and we will diffently staying there again. Thank you frank.
Thank you Michele for your review. I´m glad that you enjoyed your stay at the apartment and found the location to be close to the beach and the restaurants. Yes the area is being developed as it has been selected as one of the most exclusvie beach resorts in the Torrevieja area. As for the swimming pool the area around the pool is limited I will agree however as the beach is so close the swimming pools provide a welcome addition to the resort.

Lovely relaxing apartment
We stayed here mid September for a week and found the apartment A1 to our requirements. The position of the apartment and safe environment with its clean surrounding gardens made us feel relaxed and chilled. The apartment was clean and provided us with everything we could have wished for. Great place and would recommend to anyone wanting a good priced value for money holiday. The communication with the owner is fantastic and the meet and greet is terrific too. Thanks so much for the chance to chill out in a great environment.
Thank you very much for your comments. I´m so glad that you enjoyed your holiday at the apartment.
Clean, tidy, peaceful, excellent location. Very quiet area, but within walking distance of beach, shops, restaurants. 2 nice communal pools, everything you need is in the apartment.
I´m glad that you liked the location thank you so much for taking the time to write this review.
Very best wishes
We spent a week here, and it was 5*, had everything we needed, we felt safe and secure, knowing we had a security guard patrolling the whole complex. The apartment is beautiful, clean and well cared for, and close to shops, bars, restaurants, and the supermarket. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away, which also has bars and a restaurant too. If you didn't want to go anywhere, it is lovely to sit on the balcony (which is huge) enjoy a drink, or a meal..Overall i would recommend this property to anyone who's thinking of going to Punta Prima, you will not be disappointed..oh and the air-con, is superb..
Thank you Linda for your positive remarks. I am so glad that you enjoyed the apartment in Punta Prima. I must admit that when I have stayed at the apartment I have enjoyed the resort, the secure and tranquil location and the convenience of the beach and the shops both within easy walking distance.
Thank you once again for your kind comments Linda

This plus the many months of sunshine make this an appealing resort.

Torrevieja has become a popular resort since financial investment by the local council. The Vista Allegre,a half mile traffic free promenade surrounded by bars,cafes and restaurants where you can sit and watch all the entertainment
of traders selling their wares,the flambuoyent street performers trying to catch the attention of the passers by. Or just watch the locals discussing the day´s events. Playa de los Locos and Playa de los Curas are among a number of beautiful beaches just off the promenade. The marina is worth a visit if only to catch the boat that takes you around the bay. Torrevieja has an excellent market once a week as well as other markets at Playa Flamenca or Guadamar which are a short bus ride away. Alicante has some of the best beaches in Spain and is only 50 minutes away. Also a large marina,a castle and a multitude of shops and restaurants. Benidorm famous for the award winning comedy series of the same name,where you will find a vibrant lifestyle attracting both young and old, well worth a visit. The cities of Orihuela, Murcia and Cartagena will appeal to those who want to know more of the culture and history of the region.
La Manga and Mar Menor have lots to offer from some excellent golf courses to some tranquil beaches. In addition, a fiesta can be found almost all year round in a local village or town.
