House overview - owner's description
3 Bedroom Townhouse – Free WiFi - Situated in a private, quiet, gated complex with communal pool - Close to beaches, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, shops, golf courses and aquaparks
40 El Retiro is a lovely townhouse in a quiet, private gated community with its own communal swimming pool and secure parking. The townhouse is well appointed with free WiFi, aircon and satellite tv and has three bedrooms - sleeping six - and two bathrooms. It is suitable for a range of holiday makers from families and golfing parties to those just seeking a quiet place to relax and get away from it all. (This area of the southern Costa Blanca - the Orihuela Costa - enjoys a fantastic warm Mediterranean climate with sunshine all the year round.)
Outside and away from the quietness of the private community, there is a very wide selection of activities for everyone throughout the day and into the small hours of the following morning!
For kids of all ages, within a 15 minute walk is Playa Flamenca’s blue flag beach - one of the nicest beaches along this stretch of the coast with its walkway connecting to the other popular beaches in the area. (Seven European blue flags for excellence have been awarded to local beaches at Playa Flamenca, Punta Prima, La Zenia, Cala Capitan, Cabo Roig, La Glea/Campoamor, and Barranco Rubio.) Other attractions within walking distance include Ten Pin Bowling at La Zenia Boulevard and the Orihuela Go-Karting track, whilst slightly further afield are the flumes and slides of the Aqua-parks at Quesada and Torrevieja (one of the largest in the region).
Torrevieja is a 10 minute drive away and is a popular Spanish town, boasting a marina, waterfront market, street entertainment, shops, numerous cafes, bistros, restaurants, bars, and a beautiful church square. (The palm-lined promenade and harbour board-walk are the ideal place to go for an evening stroll or for yet more activity there is the street market and fairground going on into the small hours of the morning.)
The nearest Mercadona Supermarket with a small shopping mall is about 250m away, whilst for a wider selection of shops, bars and restaurants with lively night-life, Playa Flamenca Commercial Centre is close by (1km) - also at a similar distance in the other direction is the fabulous new shopping mall, La Zenia Boulevard Shopping Centre - see video: www.orihuela-costa.com/la-zenia-boulevard-shopping-center/ - with many major brand fashion boutiques, major retail outlets, bars and restaurants together with a Casino, Ten Pin Bowling Alley, Pasta Run, an out door stage with big screen TV showing all major sporting events plus much much more.
Very close is the area's largest Saturday street market (200m) whilst slightly further away (2km) are the busy restaurants and bars and night-life of La Zenia. All in all, there is more than enough to meet the demands of even the most ardent shopaholic (with suitable watering holes for nourishment and refreshment!)
The southern Costa Blanca is rightly known as Costa del Golf and there are three championship golf courses within a 15 minute drive of the property:-
Las Ramblas - www.lasramblassocialclub.com - built into a beautiful natural landscape of Mediterranean pines winding fairways and rugged ravines, this course - although not very long - still provides a challenge to any golfer.
Campoamor - www.campoamorgolf.info - this impressive course winds its way through two connected valleys with wide and manicured fairways which offer a fair challenge to players of all abilities.
Villamartin - www.villamartingolfclub.com - previous host to the Mediterranean Open, Villamartin and its numerous old pine and olive trees provides many diverse challenges with no one hole similar in design to another.(Regardless of these challenges you can still enjoy the beautiful view over the Mediterranean Sea!)
Within a 30 minute drive, there are another eight courses, each with its own unique design, including the world famous La Manga and La Finca golf courses.
40 El Retiro is ideally situated being within easy walking distance for the wide range of local amenities and attractions yet it also has easy access to the main N-332 coastal road and the AP-7 motorway for those that want to travel and explore the local region. Having a rental car for freedom of movement away from the immediate area is therefore not a bad idea but is not essential as locally there is also an excellent bus and taxi service.

This is a lovely property and very well equipped for families. The location is great with plenty of local supermarkets, beaches, bars and restaurants, you really don't need a car. I would just say that the pool rules stipulate no inflatables, so this may be an issue if you have young children but otherwise its very good.
This was our 6th time staying at the property and have already booked again for next year. Great for families, excellent location!
Had a great holiday,the property was clean and tidy with everything you need.We have stayed in playa flamenca for the last 3 years and love that this property is in walking to beaches and supermarkets.Would happily return.
We had a lovely stay, the property was clean and the pool area was always clean and tidy. It was very central for the supermarket and for restaurants and bars, and the Saturday Market was literally at the top of the road. We will definately look at going back again.
My family and I stayed in this property for just over 2 weeks at the beginning of July. We have holidayed in this area for the past couple of years and this property is by far the best equiped/maintained we have stayed in. The location of the property is ideal as all amenities are within walking distance. Ann and Ian are both wonderful people and made us more than welcome. The pool is excellent and kept our kids occupied for hours. I would recommend this property for families who do not wish to rent a car as everything you require for a successful holiday is on the doorstep of this delightful house. We will definately return next year.
