Comfortably sleeping five it is ideal for families, couples or singles who are looking for an inexpensive, value for money holiday in the sun with use of a pool , but who do not need a beach on the doorstep. The complex benefits from being in a quiet, mostly residential area, yet only five minutes walk away from the famous salt lakes and only a couple of minutes walk away from buses into Torrevieja town centre and local shops and bars.
The two large natural saltwater lagoons that form the well-known "Salterns of Torrevieja" are considered to be the biggest in Europe and second in the world. Some people bathe in the salt lakes as they are renowned for their healing properties. They are also a pleasant place to visit during an evening stroll after the heat of the day.
The house has a North facing patio at the front and a small South facing patio at the back where guests can enjoy the constant sunshine on one of the sun loungers provided. Should you need to cool off, the crystal clear water of the pristine communal pool is only a few meters away from the front of the house for you to enjoy a dip and is open all year round. There is a shower and separate children's section of the pool, along with ornate tables and benches for your added comfort.

There is a brand new washing machine and water heater in the utility area to the back of the house. Throughout the house is a fresh, cool feeling which is created by the light shades used in the décor and the tiled floors and wall to wall tiling in the bathrooms and kitchen.
The ornate tiled staircase leads from the lounge up to the second floor where there are two bedrooms and the bathroom. The Master bedroom has a double bed, a large built in wardrobe, two bedside tables and a door leading to the upstairs terrace. From the table and three chairs you can enjoy an impressive view all around from the terrace.

Bar Patricia and a typical Spanish restaurant are amongst the favourites with locals and holidaymakers alike. You won't believe how inexpensive it is to eat out – a three course meal with wine will only cost you 7.25euros !!
