The Andalucia region
This is a beautiful area with a great climate. Almost every day, wake up to bright cloudless skies with more than 300 sunny days a year. This area is situated on the edge of a natural park with many salt lakes which have a wonderful pink glow most days - great for bird watching. The lakes are very therapeutic making it one of the healthiest places to be in the world. The beaches are endless with safe swimming with lifeguards on some beaches in high season and surfing on the windier days.
The historic cities of Alicante, Cartagena and Elche are nearby.
There are beautiful beaches along this coast the nearest being Guardamar only 6 minutes drive away Its an endless stretch of blue flag beach with lifeguards in peak season. Great too for surfing.There is a large marina at the north end of Guardamar.
There are fishing villages up and down the coast where you can watch the catch coming in in the afternoons. Santa Pola being one. Torrevieja's interesting harbour has a submarine museum and promenade along the water front and beach where there are many restaurants and shops or shop out of town at the Habaneras centre, La Zenia or Carrefoure store 10 minutes from the house. The vibrant town of Alicante just 30 minutes away has many shops,restaurants,bars and a busy port.
The local markets are a must - open early till 2 pm usually. Browse along the stalls picking up spanish bargains and fresh produce. Why not bring home some fresh fish and sizzle on the BBQ in your own garden overlooking the pool.
There is a children's play area just across the road from the house and It is a great area for cycling as most of this area is flat. Bikes can be hired in Quesada near the Arches to the town.
The aquapark (open in the summer) is full of fun and just 5 minutes away. Horse riding is available nearby. Drive into the mountains and see some real spanish life. Stop at a local restaurant and try the 'Menu del dia' - (menu of the day). A three course home cooked meal for just a few euros.
There are 2 golf courses within a 10 minute drive, La Marquesa in Quesada and La Finca at Algorfa (where you can hire motorised buggies for your game). If you want to travel further afield drive south to La Manga to see what's on offer there. On your way you will see the Mar Menor, a large inland water bounded by La Manga peninsula with the mountains behind. The water is warm all year round due to its own micro-climate in this region. Excellent for water sports boating,swimming and diving.

"Great House for a relaxing holiday"
We had a great holiday the house is lovely and everything was very clean and comfortable, the area was nice and quiet just what we needed for an early year holiday.
The garden and pool area is very well kept with a great area for sunbathing.
Just short walk to the nearest supermarket and eating places and the restaurants by the Hotel Laguna a 5 min walk are very good value.
It is just a 20 minute stroll to the main centre of Quesada where there are many bars, shops, banks and restaurants.
Many thanks Catherine, I am sure we will be back again

We had a great holiday and lovely accomodation thanks to Catherine's apartment.
Everything was very clean, comfortable, well set out and was exactly as it appears in the advert.
The area is quiet and the pool is just outside the back gate which is so convenient. The pool area is very well kept and clean with an area for sunbathing.
A very short walk to the nearest supermarket and eating places.
If you like walking then it is only a 20 minute walk to the main centre of Quesada where there are many more bars, shops, banks etc.Walking is all on the flat , so no uphill which makes a nice stroll.
Ideal location for walking, and also near enough to the local facilities to enjoy a good evening out or a quiet evening with a drink on the patio.
Many thanks Catherine, hope to come back again

stayed for 2 weeks in this house it was very clean and comfortable.
Aircondition was great as you need it at this time of year. Neighbours very friendly as of all the people staying in the mariola complex also the cleaning lady and her husband were very kind and helpfull. Enjoyed my stay here as it was very relaxing and was great just walking out to the pool which was not overcrowded and it was very handy for the centre of the town. Would highly recommened this house. Hopefully will return back ourself.

"Quiet, peaceful - Perfect place to relax"
This apartment was fantastic, so clean and spacious and had everything in it you could possibly need, air con was great, pool just outside the back door, close to main town Quesada and other shops, bars and restaurants also.

"Great Little House"
A lovely house with access to a naturally heated shared pool, right behind the house.
On a fairly new development, it is in a great location, with a kids play park, shops and eateries all within 5 mins walk.
It is only a few miles drive to get to some lovely beaches.
The main town centre is less than a mile and has a good selection of restaurants.
The large town of Torrevieja is about 5 miles and has all the facilities you could need, including a large Carrefour which is easy to find.
The house itself has two bedrooms. One double, one twin.
The kitchen is to the rear with the living room at the front and then a covered balcony for those morning and evening meals, alfresco.
The house is marble floors throughout, which helps to keep it cool even during the hottest days. (AC also helps ).
Between the Kitchen and Living room is a useful downstairs toilet and the open plan staircase.
The bathroom on the first floor is of a good size.
A great little base!!!
Thank you for writing such a nice review of my house Mariola!
I don't know who you are but I think it has made quite a difference to my bookings this year.
Didn't realise I could respond to you but now I know.
Glad you had such a good holiday and thanks again!
All the best
