It is a 40 minute drive from Alicante airport and only 20 minutes from the smaller airport of San Javier (Murcia). Ideal for sun & sea, there are several blue flag beaches within an 8 min. drive, yet it is set in the golf course triangle of Real Campoamor, Las Ramblas & Villa Martin. The renowned La Manga golf complex is a 40 minute drive away.

You will find everything you need in these two supermarkets and it will be much cheaper than shopping in the local supermarket at Villa Martin.
Outdoor Markets:- There are too many to list them all, they are all very large and sell absolutely everything. Located at Playa Flamenca on Saturdays, Sunday at Guardama del Segura and Torrevieja on Wednesdays. There is a quaint trinket market everyday on the main promenade at Torrevieja, which has an abundance of independently owned shops along its narrow streets selling a wide range of local and designer goods.

The villa is in the middle of the "Golf Triangle"
Villa Martin Golf course, previous host to the Spanish Open, is a 5 min drive, water is in play on 3 holes and the greens are large with well positioned bunkers to test the best players.
Campoamor is a short 5 minute drive away with its magnificent club house over looking the course. It has large wide-open fairways and excellent greens with many long par 4s to test out your driving.
Las Ramblas (our favourite) is also only 5 minutes drive away. The course is located between 2 ravines on the shore of the Mediterranean and is a test for any golfer with its narrow fairways and greens. The most spectacular hole is a par 5 named 'La Plataforma' it requires absolute precision from tee to green and has 2 water hazards before reaching the green. The hugely popular American style course, La Finca, is a short 25 minute drive, situated at the foot of mount Escotera, in the municipality of Algorfa. Designed to host top tournaments it is a must play for all serious golfers.
Not forgetting La Manga - a 40 minute drive away but well worth the trip.
Other nearby activities include:
Cycling, diving, fishing, golf, horse riding, sailing, surfing, swimming, tennis, walking, water skiing, wind-surfing, Crown Green Bowling.
There is a friendly local stables just a 5 minute walk away and they are happy to take the most inexperienced riders on their afternoon treks across the nearby countryside. A great way of seeing the area.
