The Valenciana region
The property is located on a recent development that is just two minutes drive inland from the sand dunes and many kilometres of beaches at the small, modern resorts of Los Arenales and El Altet.
The climate is always warm, becoming very hot in the summer months (typically 35C), and a pleasant 10-15C in winter. It usually rains only in late Autumn and early Spring, with sunshine on at least 320 days in the year.
The development comprises many different settings in mostly Spanish style, set on a hillside with views looking inland across the fertile valley around Alicante to the distant hills.
It is fifteen minutes drive from the outskirts of the older, busier resort of Alicante, and the airport is conveniently only ten minutes away. There is no need for a car as a taxi is only €15-20 and local shops, restaurants/bars and the beach are all within walking distance.
There is also a local bus service, serving the larger shops at the Commercial Centre, to Alicante and Santa Pola with their larger selection of shops, restaurants/bars and beaches. There are boat services and fishing trips from Santa Pola out to the local island of Tabarca, with attractions at Elche (Safari Park, Palm Gardens), Benidorm (Terra Mitica, Aqualand) and many smaller resorts both up and down the coastline.
Details on all these are available and kept at the house, together with local maps and guides.
