The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
The Southern Costa Blanca has been designated by the World Health Organisation as one of the healthiest places in the world thanks to the salt lakes. It is especially good for people suffering from chest problems, asthma, etc.
The temperature rises to 35*C in the summer and rarely drops below 10*C in the winter.
Catral is a small town but is well served with amenities. There is an excellent supermarket approx. 50metres away. For fresh fruit and vegetables there is a weekly market on Saturday morning, also selling flowers, household goods, shoes and clothes amongst other things.
If you are eating out you have plenty of choice, from quality Spanish restaurants and tapas bars to the Village Inn and lots more, even Chinese and Indian takeaways.
Catral is also in an excellent position for exploring. A huge selection of beautiful sandy beaches are just a short drive away, from Santa Pola to La Manga and the Mar Menor.
The train station is only a few minutes drive away. Just park the car in the station car park and take the train into Alicante or Murcia and all points in between and beyond - Cartegena or even Madrid.
There are waterparks in Torrevieja, Ciudad Quesada and, of course, Benidorm where you will also find the fantastic Terra Mitica theme park. As Catral is so close to the motorway it takes just a little over an hour to drive to Benidorm.
If you prefer to be more active, again, there is plenty to choose from. All the southern Costa Blanca golf courses are within easy reach. La Finca is the closest, only around 15 mins. drive away at Algorfa.
There are also many excellent walks in the area. Orihuela, Redovan, Callosa, Crevilliente and more.
If nature is more to your taste you have the Natural Park of The Hondo right on your doorstep and not too far is The Mata
Water sports are abundant along the coast. Full details and maps are all available in the apartment.
