Overview

A superb two bedroom, detached Villa on El Raso overlooking a natural Lake.

The location is a short drive from the local town of Guardamar with all the facilities but it is well away from the crowds and still close to the sea & sand of the Costa Blanca. The beach at Guardamar is one of the longest on the Costa Blanca. It is also tantalisingly close to the Golf courses of Villamartin, Campoamor & Las Ramblas and even closer to the newer courses of La Finca at Algorfa and La Marquesa at Quesada.

We consider a car is essential but we can book that for you if you wish.

Supermarkets are available in Guardamar – Mercadona or alternatives such as Consum and Lidl towards Quesada.

A motorway is only a few minutes away and can get you to all points on the Costa Blanca very quickly, going north to Benidorm with the theme park of Terra Mitica or South to Cartegena (where Hannibal started his long walk across the alps!). The Towns of Crevillente (centre of the Carpet industry and Shoes) is on the way to Alicante which is just over half an hour away.


Enjoy the beautiful Spanish Climate
The Villa faces west so you have the afternoon sun right into the evening on the front terrace which also has a sensible sized patio table & chairs as we expect you will eat “al fresco” most of the time.

Inside the Villa is fully air conditioned (living area and bedrooms) so you can escape from the sun if it gets too hot.

The lounge has two leather sofas TV and can receive many of the UK channels & many radio stations to keep you in touch. It also receives Spanish TV. There is always a good selection of books, cards and games are also provided.
In the dining area there is a stylish table and four chairs .

The spacious kitchen has an electric oven, ceramic hob, tall fridge freezer, dishwasher and all the accessories you would expect, electric kettle, toaster, microwave etc. Also provided is filtered water on tap doing away with bottled water.
Adjoining the kitchen, in the utility, there is a washing machine, and second fridge for cold drinks.

Both bedrooms are air-conditioned and have ceiling fans. Fitted wardrobes with a combination of hanging space, shelves and drawers and full length mirrors are in both bedrooms.
The master bedroom on the first floor is equipped with a queen sized (5’) bed and Mexican style furniture. There is also a hairdryer.

The main bathroom on the first floor has a bath with a thermostatic multifunction shower over. By its position it’s virtually en-suite.

The outside patio upstairs is also accessed from the first floor .
The second bedroom, on the ground floor, has twin beds and pine furniture. The downstairs bathroom is adjacent and has a large shower enclosure also with thermostatic multifunction shower.
Both bathrooms are fully tiled and have fitted vanity units.

The front garden is enclosed and offers privacy.
The terrace has a patio table & chairs and sun loungers

A large open air community pool is generously sized, and is available for exclusive use of residents and guests There is a shallow childrens pool attached. The pool is surrounded by a grassed garden area with a variety of trees and seats. It is approx 100 mtrs away from the Villa so no noise! Please read the pool rules before use!.

Bed linen and towels are provided, including beach towels. All beach equipment is provided, umbrella, cool box, chairs, beach games etc.

The Villa will be cleaned between stays and prepared for your visit but we ask that you leave it reasonably clean. Additional cleaning can be requested and paid for locally.
The beaches to the north of Torrevieja are long and shallow and in common with most Costa Blanca Beaches are awarded the coveted "Blue Flag" each year for facilities and water quality.

Guardamar de Seguraia is the closest town and is a smallish typically Spanish Coastal town, about 4 km away. It lies on the River Segura and enjoys an enviable coastal position.

The town has a wonderful landscaped park where you can sit and relax, long sandy beaches and a large coastal pine forest. The Dunas de Guardamar cover an area of over 800 hectares, running parallel to the coast. They are sand deposits left by the Segura River and the Sea and at one time the threat of the town being covered by sand was a real possibility,For this reason the huge expanse of pine forest was planted in the early 1900s.

The beaches of Guardamar are some of the finest in the region, where the sand dunes continue down to the beautiful crystal clear waters. The beaches Centro, La Roqueta and El Moncayo are the nearest to the town and all possess the European blue flag award, There is also a nudist beach at Los Tusales.

The history of Guardamar dates from the 10th century, where it was inhabited by the Moors and the castle is an interesting monument. Historical remains can be seen, of particular interest is the Iberian settlement of Cabezo Lucero, where La Dama de Guardamar (Lady of Guardamar) was found dating from the 4th century BC.

Local fiestas are celebrated in Guardamar year round. The main festivals are in Holy Week (Easter), on the 21st June the "Planta" de las Hogueras are celebrated where bonfires are lit in the town and fireworks explode from the castle. The Moors and Christians is the most popular summer festival celebrated in the second Sunday in July and in honour of Saint James, the people of Guardamar dress as Moorish warriors and Christian troops and parade through the streets to the castle where fireworks are exploded. In September and October the fiesta in honour of the "Virgin of Fatima and Rosario" are celebrated. They are a wonderful opportunity to take part in traditional Spanish custom and are a colourful and fun way to spend an evening.

The local market day is Wednesday Morning in the town and on Sundays there is a very large market in the Campo de Guardamar which adjoins the Urbanisation which is a 10 minute walk from the villa. You can enjoy a drink & a snack or a meal in the semi-permanent catering area –German, Spanish, English etc.

Local entertainment and restaurants are closest in Guardamar or Quesada but Torrevieja is only a few minutes more.

Stayed Saturday 04 August 2012
Family with two kids (9 & 7). 3 weeks in August 2012. Had a lovely time in this property nicely furnished and well-equipped (air con in all rooms). Very close to the beach (8mn by car) and to shopping facilities either in Guardamar or Torrevieja. There is even a large market on Sunday morning 5 minutes drive. The community pool is really large and convenient for all kids. Grass, benches and shade all around. We found this villa one of the best place we rent in Spain very suitable for those who like to enjoy beach life and relax in the evening in a quiet area. Besides, there are lot of restaurants in Guardamar and Torrevieja to enjoy evening life.

A lovely Villa, which we hope to return to in the near future. During our search to purchase our own place, we have stayed in similar type properties in El Raso over the past year or so. This one stood out for its cleanliness and quality of furnishings. Hopefully by the time we return the good weather will also have!

The villa was in an excellent location for us. Everything we needed for a self catering stay was available in the villa right down to a pizza cutter!! Inside it was spotless and very well kept. The outside area was lovely and the community pool was very nice and very close. The communication from the owners was excellent. We will definately be using this villa again, in fact everytime we visit our relatives we would stay here.

This property had everything we could possibly need and all to a very high standard. It was conveniently located for Guardamar and surrounding areas. The Urbanisation, although a little too anglicised, was clean, quiet and had excellent facilities. The villa itself was beautifully presented and had an excellent supply of towels, linen, kitchen equipment and beach accessories. We had a fantastic holiday and wouldnt hesitate to rent again. Thank you!

Beautiful villa in a clean and quiet residential street, very close to a few bars and restaurants and 5 minutes car journey to the beach. There is also a lovely communal pool which is very clean. I would love to go back to the villa and wouldnt hesitate to recommend it to friends. Thank you for a lovely stay

Nice clean house, reasonably well equiped. Handy for swimming pool (pool rules are a bit stringent and it closes very early at night). A welcome pack was not offered - possibly because agent knew we live locally and would be able to provide for our guests.

Lovely villa in a peaceful location and well equipped. Great communal pool - kids loved it! Air conditioning a bonus. Thanks for a great holiday.

The house was extremely well equipped and very clean. There was an abundance of towels to use. It is a spacious property and in very close proximity to the communal pool.
Verified
The villa was very comfortable, the air conditioning being a real bonus and the pool was excellent. However, it is a very quiet area apart from the occasional noise from other areas locally that are still being developed. Local facilities are limited at the moment and the advice that a car is essential is correct if you want to access the beach, Guadamar etc.
