A fully furnished 3 bed/2 bathroom Townhouse in Cabo Roig. Walking distance to the beach and a short drive to the 4 Golf courses in the area.
Situated on the south east coast of mainland Spain, the Costa Blanca is renowned for its sandy white beaches and warm Mediterranean climate. Steeped in history and boasting beautiful mountain views, sweet fragrance orange groves and glistening waters, this picturesque Valencian province has something for everyone.
You certainly wont be short of things to explore on the Costa Blanca, whether you wish to delve into its history and culture or reveal the untold mysteries of the deep blue Mediterranean.
Torrevieja has, in recent years, grown to be one of the most popular and important centres on the Mediterranean Sea for residential tourism. Torreviejas seafront offers a lot of restaurants, tapas bars and street cafes on the very wide promenade which popular for the “Spanish evening stroll”. If you simply wish to relax and soak up the rays, then head for one of Torreviejas sandy white beaches, which have been awarded the ECs "Blue Flag" status so you can ensure safe bathing and quality recreation facilities for you and your family.
Take advantage of Torreviejas magnificent Friday market, which sells everything from fruit and vegetables to housing accessories and gifts. There is an indoor market in the town centre open daily for fish, vegetables and meat. Fresh seafood and fish can be bought daily at the port of Torrevieja. In fact, why not make a day of it and "shop until you dro p" in Torreviejas many boutiques or the new Habernas shopping centre with H&M, C&A, Zara, Puma, etc. For the kids, we have McDonalds, Burger King, KFC or the ten pin bowling, amusement centre, sports centre with Olympic sized pool, etc.
Local to Torrevieja are two large natural saltwater lagoons, known as "las Salinas", the largest in Europe. The concentration of salt in these picturesque lagoons helps to draw the moisture out of the air. This, combined with the very low annual rainfall, creates the unique microclimate with low humidity. With most days being sunny, and with an average temp of 18 degrees centigrade, make this area ideal for sufferers of rheumatism, arthritis and asthma.
Cabo Roig is in the area of Orihuela Costa, is 10 minutes drive south of Torrevieja and is on the a main bus and taxi route. It has a very multi-cultural feel as many people from other countries now live in this area and actually outnumber the Spaniards! This area is a favourite for British and Irish ex-pats. Consequently, the shops, bars and restaurants in this area originate from many nationalities to provide food to suit all tastes - from the native Spanish to Italian, French, German, Chinese, Indian, Korean, Scandinavian, Argentinean, Hungarian, Mexican cuisine, etc.
The complex is behind a large commercial area called locally "The strip" with numerous bars, restaurants, supermarkets, etc, behind the main coast road, the N332.
Less than 2 km or about 20 minutes walk to the nearby EU Blue Flag beaches at Playa Flamenca and La Zenia, which have vast expanses of golden sands and there are jet-skis, a banana boat and pedalos in the summer months, as well as the usual "bars on the beach".
Close by is the Orihuela Costa Resort, where there is a magnificent pool with large sunbathing terrace and loungers, extensive lawn area, tennis courts, basket ball area and gymnasium - available for a small charge - and pool bar and restaurant.
30 minutes walk (or 5 minutes by car) to the Flamenca Beach Commercial Centre, the largest in the area, with about 60 bars and restaurants and nearby are familiar supermarkets such as Lidl, Aldi and Supercor. There is a popular market on every Saturday morning in a wide road in Playa Flamenca.
10 minutes drive, or 8 km to Torrevieja town centre, marina, harbour, Carrefour, Habernas shopping centre (H&M, C&A, Zara, etc), McDonalds, ten pin bowling, casino, etc.
Less than 10 minutes drive to the golf courses of Villamartin, Campoamor and Las Ramblas.
Nearby there is a bus stop into Torrevieja town and beyond and there are various taxi ranks around the area.
We recommend a car to get the best out of any area but if all you want to do is relax, take in the sun and have meal and a drink in the evening, either in the property or in the nearby commercial centres, it is not essential due to the numerous facilities within walking distance.
We had a very enyoyable stay at this villa, as we already know the area it was easy to find and the arrangements with the key holder were clear and easy. This villa is in a good spot for eating out and chilling at night it is really convenient for the local bars and retaurants. We tended to drive to the beaches but only because it was so hot in the day and it was quicker and easier to drive rather than walk. The villa is well equiped and the owner was flexible with the rental dates which meant we were able to take advantage of the best flight deals. We did struggle slightly because there is no storage in one bedroom but on the whole it was exactly what we wanted.

Review Number 3 Review submitted by tracy from bury (Submitted: 13/08/2007 ) Review for: 3 bed Townhouse in Cabo Roig ) "The property was very clean and well presented, there was plenty of room even when there was eight of us at one point. The main double bed was excellent, but the other beds were not to comfortable especially when you are there for a longer period like we was. All the facilities were provided for a self catering holiday and the air-con was much appreciated in such hot weather. The top floor room was provided with 2 fans which were fine for the children, this room also led out to a lovely solarium. Bedsheets and towels were also provided. The pool was a good size and had lovely sea views across from it, you will need to take an umbrella for shade though as there was no shaded areas at all. The area was very secure and had secured gates at both entrances, the property was close to entertainment, although you couldn't hear this in the property itself. All in all this was good value for money." Value: Good , Met expectations: Yes - satisfied , Recommend: Yes , Overall: Good
