About the home
Casa Azucena is a first floor apartment on a modern, recently built complex a few minutes drive out of the lovely town of Torrevieja. The nearest beach is Punta Prima - an intimate bay with soft golden sand and rocky headlands for interest, surmounted by a lovely promenade. Punta prima is 1.5km (15 minutes) walk - or 2.9km - (5 minutes) drive.
The apartment is close - but not too close! - to supermarkets, shops, and a good range of restaurants and bars. Everything is within walking distance - but far enough away to ensure peace and quiet when you are 'at home'.
The apartment benefits from a private sun roof, a front balcony and a ground floor garden area - all of which gives you the choice of sunshine or shade throughout the day. The complex has a lovely garden area with a shared swimming pool and is ideal for families with children. From the sun roof and the balcony, there are enticing distant views of the sea: ideal when enjoying a glass of wine as the sun goes down!

The Costa Blanca / Valencia / Alicante Province region
The Costa Blanca is one long chain of golden sandy beaches, from small coves to long, flat stretches. Nearly all the local beaches have the blue flag mark for cleanliness and beaches are groomed on a daily basis. The area also comprises two large natural salt water lagoons, famous for their health-giving properties. The two main industries are agriculture and the production of salt and you will see mountains of salt - and other evidence of the local industry at various places. There is a lovely mild climate, with average yearly temperatures of around 17degrees. There are many things to do on the Costa Blanca which caters very well for the needs of holidaymakers. Valencia, Alicante and Elche are worth a visit, as is Benidorm with its long sandy beaches and lively bars. There is a waterpark locally, as well as an adventure park, safari park and go-karts all within a reasonable drive and if beaches are your thing, then any stop off the main road will lead you to a cove or another bay to discover.
The Torrevieja Area / Los Altos/Punta Prima area
The local town of Torrevieja is definitely worth spending time in. It has a wonderful promenade along the sea front and lots of bars and cafes to relax in while you enjoy an ice cream and watch the world go by. It has interesting shops for an afternoon's browsing and a good range of restaurants. If you don't wish to hire a car, there is a very convenient bus service to and from Torrevieja. Details can be found in the information pack at the Apartment.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Casa Azucena is easily reached from either Murcia (San Javier) airport (18 miles, 30 minutes by car) or Alicante airport (30 miles, 50 minutes by car). From either airport, take the N332, a long and easy road that runs parallel to the sea right the way up the Costa Blanca coast.
Flights from the UK take 2 - 2.5 hours and there are several budget airlines (Easy Jet, Ryan Air, Jet 2) fly to both Alicante and Murcia.
Car hire firms are many at both airports: We find Centauro and Economy to be cheap and efficient.
If you prefer not to drive, taxis are freely available at both local airports. Once at the apartment, all local amenities are within reasonable walking distance.

My husband and I just stayed in this apartment for a week. The apartment is perfect! It is modern, well equipped and also spotlessly clean. It is situated in a quiet area but is within walking distance of plenty of restaurants and a supermarket (10 minutes stroll) and a small beach (20 minutes stroll). We did have a car in order to explore further afield and visit the larger beaches, though it really wasn't essential, more of a personal preference.
I also have to note what a pleasure it was dealing with Julie the owner. She was helpful, informative and friendly.
I will certainly be recommending this apartment to friends for a relaxing couple or small family stay.

Julie Warren's apartment was all the description said it would be - and more. It was spotlessly clean, all linen and towels were provided, as well as plenty of seating for the roof terrace and pool. The pool area was well kept and had an attendant. One of the lovliest areas of the apartment was the roof terrace - lovely in mornings and evenings. Julie was extremely helpful during the booking procedure and on tips for when we were there. She sent us clear instructions for the agent's office which would have been tricky to find alone. It was the perfect place for a family holiday. A car was necessary, as we had been advised, and it was a straight road from Alicante airport. The location was quiet but close to all amenities and a good variety of restaurants. If anyone wished to cook all the time, the kitchen is quite small, with little bench space, but there is a good sized table in the dining area.We look forward to our next holiday!
