Situated about 6 kilometres from Torrevieja town centre, La Siesta is a quiet area with a mix of ex-pat residents and holiday properties. Ideal for walkers as there are salt lakes and a nature reserve in the vicinity.
Many lovely beaches are a short distance away, the nearest and one of the best being Guardamar del Segura, just a 15 minute drive away. The beaches of the Orihuela Costa are less than 30 minutes away and those in Torrevieja town can be reached by bus. The bus runs every 30 minutes, the bus stop is one minute from the apartment.
The lovely new shopping centre at La Zenia is 20 minutes drive away and boasts many shops, including C & A and Primark, lots of restaurants, entertainment and free Wifi.
There are lots of Fiestas throughout the year in the Torrevieja area, one of the best being the 4 day long Feria de Mayo, an Andalucian festival of flamenco and all things equestrian. Magical! Others include daily celebrations in during Holy Week at Easter, Moors and Christians in July and many more. Spain loves fiestas!
In the immediate area of La Siesta we have bars and restaurants, a small supermarket 5 minutes walk away and a big supermarket 20 minutes walk. A small water park is also located 15 mins walk from the apartment.
There are lots of weekly markets nearby, every day one is held in one or other of the surrounding areas. Zocco market on Sundays is particularly good and Torrevieja town centre hosts a traditional market on Fridays with lots of foodstuffs, clothes and leather goods etc.
It is possible to take coach trips all over the region, picking up just down the road (the coach trips booking office is in the next apartment block). Good ones we have been on include Benidorm, Jumilla (wine growing region), Altea Christmas Market, Guadalest (lovely mountain village) and there are many more.
