Is a car essential?
To fully enjoy the area and ensure ease of travel, a car is recommended but not essential. Car hire from the airports can be pre-booked, is convenient and offers very good value for money. I use the following site for booking good value car hire but numerous other sites are available www.doyouspain.com
Parking is available immediately outside the property.
An airport pickup service can be arranged at additional cost if required. Alicante airport is approximately 40 minutes drive, Murcia approximately 30 minutes drive.
If you do not wish to hire a car then there is an hourly bus service to Torrevieja and an hourly bus service to the local beaches. The bus stop is a 5 minutes walk, outside the Consum supermarket.
