The Costa Blanca / Valencia / Alicante Province region
The Costa Blanca - South-eastern Spain - Without doubt a huge majority of visitors who travel to the Costa Blanca each year do so mainly to take advantage of the sun, the sea and the beaches, It would be a mistake however to think that this is all the Costa Blanca has to offer, a quick glance at a travel guide of the area will confirm that there are a great many places of interest to visit and enjoy.
Exactly where the Costa Blanca (White Coast) begins and ends is not clearly defined but the region comprises approximately 200 km of coastline stretching from Gandia in the north to Pilar de la Horadada in the south, it also takes in a large hinterland with areas of mountains, sierras, river valleys and natural parks. The area to the north of Gandia is called the Costa del Azahar (Orange Blossom Coast) and the area to the south of Pilar is known as the Costa Calida (Warm Coast).
The entire Costa Blanca region has a wealthy and distinguished history and many historic artefacts have been found dating back to the Neolithic Era. Lying in an important strategic position on the Mediterranean coastline, the Costa Blanca has been invaded and occupied by important civilizations including Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, Carthaginians and Moors. Each civilization has left its own identity on the region and each has resulted in significant cultural and religious consequences for the indigenous population. Perhaps the greatest influences on the region were caused during the Roman and Arab occupations, which both moulded the areas subsequent history.
A different kind of invasion occurred during the 20th Century - that of tourism, and this has probably resulted in the most rapid and dramatic changes in the Costa Blanca’s history so far. A huge amount of development has taken place and the economy of the region has undergone sweeping changes. Towns and villages which formerly relied on fishing, agriculture and salt production now rely almost entirely on tourism and related industries and many new jobs have been created, increasing the wealth of the region and its inhabitants.
The main attraction for holidaymakers (especially north Europeans) is of course the wonderful climate, with over 300 days of sunshine each year and very low rainfall, it is the perfect location for a relaxing summer holiday or a well earned winter break. Sunshine is virtually guaranteed from May to October so it is not necessary to confine visits to the popular months of July and August. In the months of December and January the Costa Blanca normally enjoys some beautiful sunny days, so it is a great place to take a break away from the dismal weather of the UK and other north European countries.
The Costa Blanca has some of the best beaches in Spain and they are usually very well cared for and safe, there are a large number of ‘blue flag’ beaches and these are normally cleaned every day and will often have life-guards on duty during the busy summer months. Some of the more popular beaches can get busy during July and August but if you take some time to explore a little, you may find quiet and isolated beaches even during the high season.
Overall the Costa Blanca has much to offer holidaymakers and tourists of all types, fine beaches for sun lovers, ancient towns and cities for culture lovers and wonderful natural parks for nature lovers. Try a visit some time soon and enjoy a little of what the Costa Blanca has to offer.
The Torrevieja Area / Playa Flamenca area
There are numerous bars, shops and restaurants near the apartment, including Seafood, Spanish and English, to name but a few. There is also a huge market on Saturday mornings in Playa Flamenca that is within walking distance.
There are many great sandy beaches in the area such as La Zenia, Punta Prima, Mil Palmeras and Cabo Roig, however we are just next to Playa Flamenca Beach which includes a playarea for the kids. During the holiday season these have life guards on them. For golfers its only a 10 minute drive to the golf courses of Villamartin, Campoamor and Las Ramblas. Torrevieja is just North of us and is surrounded by two large and beautiful natural salt water lakes which form the "Salinas de Torrevieja" and are an official Spanish nature reserve. These lakes attract a wide variety of bird life.
Torrevieja has a great aqua park, shopping centres, cinemas and ten pin bowling to name but a few activities.
The city of Torrevieja which gets its name from an old tower (old=vieja ; tower=torre), was first mentioned around 1800. It became famous in 1802, when it took over the salt administration from Orihuela. Apart from the salt industry, tourism and fishing keep the city alive. The harbour gives home to 300 fishing ships and over 900 private sports boats. A wonderful view, especially when the sun sets.
The weather in Torrevieja makes it an ideal location for year round holiday activities - especially if you want to fulfil that yearning to get away during those dark, dreary winter months to the sunnier parts of Europe. On average, Torrevieja enjoys 320 days of sunshine per year and an average daily temperature of 18°C. Temperatures in July and August are typically 30°C. Many people prefer the months April, May, June, September, October and November.

We stayed here for 4 months and enjoyed all of it. It's an amazing apartment and I doubt you will find anything so relaxing & peaceful.
Our securely gated apartment made us feel right in the middle of this beautiful community; the apartment was very well equipped for us, with a double bed and two singles.
It is self catering and has everything and more you could wish for, glasses, plates, all cutlery. The bedrooms were good sizes, comfortable with convenient built-in closets - lounge /dining, kitchen had everything including TV & wireless internet. The bus route is beside the Mercadona Supermarket, a few minutes walk away. From here you can quickly travel into Alicante by bus or car as there is so much to see and do, or just sleep, read, and relax on the beach across the street or by the pool downstairs. The ground floor houses high quality amenities, including restaurants, bars, newsagents, bakery, butcher, post office, language school. If you stay in, there is a heavenly balcony with the apartment facing south and west that includes a sea view and sunshine all day.
All your home comforts and so well situated, just a few mins walk to the supermarket or the new world-class La Zenia Shopping Center. A perfect base for exploring the surrounding beaches, and visiting some of the many friends that we have made in the area.

This apartment was not worth the money. Old bath-worn, no room in wardrobes as owner has all their things still there, rusty fans, grubby towels,balcony furniture not suitable-no room for more than 2 to eat at the table. The whole place needs refurbishing
In response to this review the owners have assured me that since this guests stay Flores Playa has been refubished and owners items removed. It had been due to be done before but due to the property being booked constantly (with many happy guests, some of which have already rebooked for next year)it was impossible to get any work done.
