The bathroom contains a shower, toilet and and bath and we leave many toiletries for our guests' use - all we ask is if you use the last, just replace it.

There is a shared secure pool adjacent to the apartment and a bigger one, again secure, just around the corner on the same complex, complete with a small number of sun loungers.
The well equipped kitchen contains many cooking facilities including fridge freezer, microwave, juicer, blenders,washing machine.
There are many store cupboard ingredients (including tea/coffee/sugar for that much needed cuppa on arrival!) and toiletries that are in the apartment - all we ask is that if you use the last of any essential item, you replace it. As there is a washing machine, iron and board and airer, you don't need too many clothes so you could save some money by not taking a case which can then be spent on your favourite (and very reasonably priced) tipple!

Close to Las Filipinas/Villamartin are numerous beaches with magnificent views over the sparkling blue Mediterranean and the “white sand” that is typical of the Costa Blanca.

All of these beaches and all the other major beaches along this part of the Mediterranean coastline are consistently awarded the European Blue Flag which is your guarantee of high standards and facilities for the whole family. A 20 minute drive takes you to the beautiful Guardamar Beaches Stretching For 14km Of The Southern Costa Blanca. Alternatively, drive south for 20 mins and bathe in the therapeutic Mar Menor. In a climate that enjoys 320 days of sunshine a year, our home is ideally situated for a relaxing beach holiday, taking advantage of the numerous golf courses, or for exploring the surrounding area.
Orihuela Costa enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the cold North winds in winter. The area averages nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.
In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination.
Las Filipinas is ideally placed to cater for family holidays and also golfers, having easy access not only to the course at Villamartin, but also to Las Ramblas, Campoamor, and the new Las Colinas. Further afield, La Marquesa and La Finca courses are only approximately 15-20 minutes away, and the famous course at La Manga is approximately a 30 minute drive South. The golden sandy beach at La Zenia is only a 5 minute drive. Also the new Centro Commerciale - ZENIA BOULEVARD is a short ride away housing designer shops and big high-street names, bars, restaurants, leisure faciilities - well worth a visit.
Las Filipinas has a good mix of bars/restaurants and small supermarkets and a large Supermercardo a short walk away. La Fuente Centro Commerical, a 10 minute walk away, has a good choice of bars and restaurants. Villamartin Plaza is a 20 minute walk offering an extensive range of bars and restaurants catering for all. September 2012 saw the opening of Zenia Boulevard. With over 150 shops and 5,000 free parking spaces, it is the biggest shopping centre in the province of Alicante, and is a 10 minute drive from the house and next to this is the La Zenia market which is held twice a week - both well worth a visit.
Torrevieja is also nearby boasting a lovely harbour and very a interesting promenade which hosts a daily street market. The promenade is worth seeing even if it is just for the stone sculptures on the rocks! Torrevieja has a major shopping area, indoor market and an extensive outdoor market which takes almost the full day to get around.
