The climate boasts an average of 320 days of sunshine a year. You have the choice to explore the numerous activities the coast has to offer. Fantastic golf courses, water sports, horse riding, tennis are just a few of the options.
The coast is full of protected wildlife reserves, around the Torrevieja saltpans the unique wetland eco system is an important nature reserve with flamingos, in total there are over 250 species of birds.

It has a large variety of cafes, restaurants and shops where you can sit outside under the palm trees and enjoy a drink or a meal. There is a new coastal bus service from the Villamartin Plaza to La Zenia and Playa Flamenca beaches, running every hour during the summer.
There are ample supermarkets in the area which always have fabulous choice of breads, cheeses, meats and fish. Needless to say the alcohol is a lot cheaper than the UK. For those who just have to surf the net or check up on emails, there are plenty of internet cafes.
The historic town of Torrevieja is just a few kilometres away and is surrounded by two salt lake lagoons. A typically ‘Spanish’ town, it has a large marina and a fabulous promenade where you’ll find Spanish families just strolling along on their evening walks. The promenade is a great place to sit and have a coffee whilst people watching! Fiestas and festivals take place here throughout the year but mainly at Easter and in the summer.

It has a swimming pool and superb club house for you to relax in. The club house and restaurant are open to non-golf players too.

My Partner and I stayed here in September 2012 for 10 nights. The apartment was a home from home - it had everything we needed. The lounge was very comfortbale as it has 2 large sofas so on the nights where you fancied staying in you could sit comfortably . There is a large TV that had all of the english channels . There are two bedrooms, one with on suite (brilliant powerful shower). The other bedroom has the main bathroom next to it. There is a balcony overlooking the gardens which is nice to sit on in the evening with food or a drink. The pool is within the gardens and is very well kept and has a shallow pool next to it if you have children. The kitchen was very well equipped and on the nights we decided to stay in to eat it had everything we needed. There was also a cool bag which we used every day to keep our water / food in on days out. The apartment has a washing machine too which is very handy. Villa Martin is a 5 minute walk away and has plenty of bars and restaurants - lots of choice. There are some great beaches nearby with all the amenities. We ventured out on a few of the days to places like Murcia, Ourehla (not sure if thats the right spelling) & Elche - these are all very interesting and cultural spanish towns all within about 20 - 45 mins drive away. Would definately recommend this apartment !

We wanted to stay somewhere near Villamartin due to the really good beaches for my wife and the excellent golf courses for me. A friend recommended this apartment which was owned by someone she worked with. On arrival we found the apartment was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It is well furnished and the owners have provided little extras such as books and DVD's should you wish to stay in. But we went to Spain for the glorious sun and sea. There are so many beaches just 5-10 minutes drive away. They are all wide and sandy with really good amenities such as beach bars, toilets, watersports. Most evenings we walked to the Villamartin Plaza where they have so many different restuarants to cater for every taste and budget. If you want somewhere family-orientated and relaxing that won't cost you the earth then Villamartin is a great place to go. We would definitely go back to stay at this apartment due its location, value and cleanliness.
