This gorgeous penthouse apartment is located within a 5 minute walk of the friendly and relaxed Vega Baja town of Almoradi. The beautiful town square itself is located around the Church of San Andres and is populated by manicured trees, water features and has lovely bars, restaurants and shops; it is a wonderful place to relax and watch the world go by.
Every Saturday, the Church Square hosts a very popular market with stall holders setting up in the streets that surround the Church, adding to the atmosphere.
This area is well known for its fiestas with the famous Moors & Christians fiesta being a highlight in late July through to early August - these weeks are our most requested and popular times - book early to avoid disappointment.
There are many other fiestas within the region, most of them take place in the summer weeks – a Google search will let you plan them in advance.
Or, please let me know if you require a link to a timetable of events for 2014.
If golf is your thing, be sure to take a look at the many courses that are within a reasonable radius, including La Finca, Villa Martin and La Manga.
Beautiful golden beaches are a mere 15 minute drive away but they are just as easy to access by bus or taxi. If you like the beach but are keen to still be active, there is the promenade of Torrevieja where you can walk along the coastline, stopping at the cafes along the way. The promenade enjoys a bustling and friendly nightlife, with many clubs & bars. There is also a new marina inclusive of a variety of shops.
Other days out that you can plan for are the Safari Park at Elche, where you can swim with the dolphins and the fabulous aqua park which is also in Torrevieja.
If you want something a bit quirky and amusing, Benidorm is a 90 minute drive away, where you can enjoy a drink at the Sol Pelicanos Hotel (home of the Benidorm TV show) and have night out at the Benidorm Palace. Local companies run a day coach for 10€, and also offer evenings out to the Benidorm Palace where you can enjoy a meal and a pretty good show.

The town of Almoradi is found within the Vega Baja region of Spain. Renowned for its orange and lemon groves and wonderful climate, it has been recognised by the World Health Organisation as the 4th most beneficial in the world due to its mild climate all year round. The average summer temperatures are in excess of 30 degrees and the average winter temperature rarely falls below 18 degrees. Thus helping to alleviate symptoms such as rheumatism and arthritis.
The salt lakes within the area are often pink in colour, are classed as preservation areas for an abundance of bird species. Including flamingos, these feed at the Santa Pola lakes and are a beautiful sight.
The area boasts over 100km of Coastline with golden sandy beaches, deep blue seas and palm trees,
The historic town of Santa Pola is a 35 min drive away; this has excellent beaches, an old town with its ancient castle walls. From here you can take boat trips to the Island of Tabarca and enjoy a first class meal or take a glass bottom boat trip to view the sea life.
