This is a modern, child-friendly, 2 bedroom air conditioned apartment in the San Luis area of Torrevieja, Costa Blanca. Its a very peaceful & relaxing location which overlooks, and has very good views of, two lakes and a natural park. However, we are also just a short drive from good local restaurants, several Spanish villages, several golf courses and the lively town of Torrevieja. We have use of a large communal swimming pool with a small pool for young children.
The apartment is very child-friendly and, if required, can include use of a travel cot, baby bath, portable baby seat, paddling pools and a good collection of toys. There is no charge for these accessories.
Inside the apartment everything is on one level and includes a balcony which overlooks the natural park. The balcony includes a small table and chairs and is accessed from the lounge/diner.
There is also a large roof terrace, also overlooking the natural park, with a canopy, two sunbeds and a table and chairs. The roof terrace is gated for child safety and is accessed by steps outside the front door.
Master Bedroom - 1 Double Bed. This room overlooks the natural park and includes a wardrobe, chest of drawers, two bedside cabinets and two reading lamps.
Twin Bedroom - 2 Twin Beds. This room includes a wardrobe, a chest of drawers, a bedside cabinet and a reading lamp. This is an ideal room for children and both beds can be pushed together if necessary.
The lounge includes cable TV, VCR (with a selection of videos), plus DVD/CD player and cassette/radio.
The region enjoys 300+ days sunshine per year & is one of the healthiest climates (according to the World Health Organisation). Alicante/Murcia Airports are within a 45 minute(s) drive.
Our apartment offers an excellent view of the natural park (the Parque Natural) and two lakes (Salinas de Torrevieja and Salinas de la Mata). These are promoted locally as a tourist attraction.
Shopping and Dining - can be reached by walking for 10 minute(s). This includes a large Mercadona, a small English run supermarket (selling all the English brands), several bar/restaurants, a newsagent/tobacconist, an English-speaking bank (with cashpoint), a property agents and a hairdressers. 5 minutes drive away we also have Caprado, Carrefour and Lidl super/hypermarkets, plus a well stocked toy shop and a new, quality shopping centre with a roof-top funfair.
The apartment is just 10 minutes drive from an excellent beach at Guardamar which has golden sand for as long as the eye can see. We are also 5 minutes drive to the N332 coast road which leads to more beaches at Cabo Roig, Campoamor, La Zenia, Punta Prima, Playa Flamenca, Torrevieja and several others.
2 minutes walk - local bar/restaurant with swimming pool, quiz nights, pitch & putt, ballroom dancing for adults and more modern dancing for children, childrens play area, crown green bowls, bingo, keep fit, Sky Sports and other community activities
5 minutes drive - ten pin bowling with amusement arcade, casino, aqua-park (under 3s go free), horse riding, English speaking doctor/pharmacy
5 to 15 minutes drive - weekly street markets at San Pedro, Orihuela, La Mata, San Miguel, Guardamar, Rojales, Torrevieja, Los Montesinos, Playa Flamenca and Lemon Tree Grove (enough markets to go everyday if you dare)
15 minutes drive - two not incompatible attractions, Go Carts at Playa Flamenca and English speaking hospital (San Jaime)
20 minutes drive - we understand there are good golf courses at Formentera, Algorfa, Villamartin, Las Ramblas, Campoamor, Rojales, Pilar de la Horadada and Casa Verea. You may want to check these for yourself because weve not used them and can barely swing a club ourselves. However, weve seen the one at Algorfa and its certainly stunning to see, if not to play.
25 minutes drive - English cinema at Pilar de la Horadada
* 90 minutes drive - Spa at Fortuna
And, for just one euro, a regular bus service will take you to/from Torrevieja town centre. Here you have acres of bars and restaurants, the seafront and pier, a daily street market, the marina, boat trips around the bay, an evening funfair and the tourist office.

Very good communication by owner before we travelled . Accurate description of apartment and area . Good views from balcony and roof terrace of salt lakes . Apartment basic but had everything we needed . Pool only a short walk away . Pool didnt get busy but some of the behaviour of users had no consideration of others. I feel a pool guard would have been useful . Its a bus ride into torrevieja and takes about 30 mins . A car would be useful to explore the area . There is a bowling club with pool 5 mins away where you can access wifi and get good food . The local mercandona is about 10 mins walk away and stocks everything you need. The square with places to eat and a few shops is also about a 10 mins walk . The cost of the apartment is good value compared to others in the area . Especally as there is NO extra cleaning charge . The FREE welcome package was a nice touch as we arrived in the evening . Would reecommend to others !
This is a very pleasant apartment in a lovely quiet location. It is not overlooked and has a lovely view over fields. The rooftop area is excellent for sitting out in. It was a pity the weather wasnt very nice in March while we were there but we still had a couple of days where we could sit up there. I imagine it would be lovely when the sun was shining and hot. The apartment itself has everything you need and is very clean. What is particularly a nice touch is the welcome pack that is provided by the owner. I would most certainly stay again in this apartment and would recommend it to my friends.
Easy to find with directions provided. Very pleasant comfortable apartment with everything we needed for a good holiday. Swimming pool was lovely and clean, and very welcome in the heat.
Welcome pack provided was a really nice touch, especially the large bottles of water ready chilled after the journey. We had a very good stay, and would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone thinking of booking.
We were very happy overall. It was very hot over there in June and we would have loved to have had air conditioning although we knew this when we went over.
Good aspects were that the property had a lovely view. It was nice to have a selec tion of goodies when we moved in.
The bulb had gone in the bathroom and this was replaced without any delay. I wss unable to do it but Paul replaced it without fuss.
It was a while since we had been over but we did enjoy it very much. One major plus was the swimming pool was very close by and very clean into the bargain. I am sure that this is an extra people will look for in a break. I know from experience just how expensive and time consuming mainitaining a pool can be.
Thank you once again and we will visit some time soon
Regards Peter and Eileen
Comfortable and well maintained apartment in a convenient yet quiet location. Would recommend to anyone in search for good value self catering accommodation in the San Luis area. Would book again.
