The nearest of these beaches is just a five minute drive from the villa and is backed by miles of protected sand dunes and pine forests - a perfect place to explore.

Beautiful Villa with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.
The pool around the corner was excellent and most days we had it to ourselves.
I would not hesitate in booking this Villa for a future holiday.
I would recommned hiring a car form the airport as car rental is limited in the immediate area.

We stayed here as a family with 3 children and I couldn't have chosen any better. Spotlessly clean - and I'm very particular when in self catering accom and tastefully decorated. It had absolutely everything required both in the kitchen and rooms right down to DVD's for the kids and adults for chilling out & English TV & ipod dock, which my son had insisted it wouldn't have. I would recommend a hire car to enable you get about. We hired one which we picked up from the airport and the 20-25min drive is quite straightforward to La Marina, although slightly more difficult finding the correct street once in the area as it has lots of one-way roads. There are several towns to visit all within a 10-15min drive in each direction. We also took the kids to the large waterpark in Benidorm which was just over 1hrs drive and very easy to find. And the kids loved it. Beware though,it is expensive to buy the tickets at the gate but we bought them from the local travel agent in La Marina before we left and got 10euro and 8euro discount off the price of each ticket. The local town is a short walk away which is quite taxing in the blistering heat (38 degrees) but does have all the shops/restaurants/bars you would need. Local taxis are readily available and there are many sightseeing bus trips which can be booked if you don't have a car. The private pool just around the corner was lovely which we used daily, and we had it most of the time to ourselves. The rooftop terrace has table/chairs/loungers to sit out and is quite private and around the other side is the washing machine which really was handy with 3 kids and meant I didn't have to take 2wks worth of clothes with us. The owner is extremely helpful and readily accommodated us with flight times and posted helpful directions from the airport. We wouldn't hesitate to use the villa again.
