It is situated on Las Ramblas golf course in a non traffic area amongst communal gardens with the shared pool just 25 metres away. The local area is tranquil, surrounded by natural pine forest and rugged hills, yet you are only a few minutes from an abundance of restaurants, bars and nightlife scattered all around this vibrant area.
A factor that really sets this property apart from others is its own private south facing walled garden to the front and side. Perfect for small children it is laid to lawn with flowering shrubs, palms and a BBQ. With two terraces where you can enjoy a drink, eat al fresco and watch the sun set. Sun loungers and patio furniture are provided. Private parking is also just 25m from the apartment; no traffic can approach the property due to its pedestrian aspect. There is a children’s park/play area within a five to ten minute walk.

Las Ramblas itself is a pretty oasis that is perfect also for those who do not play golf. There are plenty of walks along the canal, through the meandering hills and protected pine forest. The surrounding farmland, together with orange and lemon groves, makes for some stunning views across valleys to the coast just a few kilometres away.

Bars & restaurants
This area has so much to offer when it comes to eating and drinking as you are not far from the bars and restaurants of Cabo Roig and Villamartin. Both are within a five minute drive, here you will find bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. The nearest restaurants, supermarkets, shops and banks are all within a 10 minute walk or a two-minute drive.
Beaches and Attractions
Within a 5 to 10 minute drive are the excellent local blue flag beaches and picturesque coves of La Zenia, Cala Capitan, Campoamor, Mil Palmeras, Cabo Roig and Punta Prima all with soft white sand. The superb local Tapas and Paella in the beach bars are all good and we highly recommend the paella in La Mirada at la Zenia. Water sports are also available. The beach of La Mata is situated on the edge of Torrevieja and a few minutes further north are the beaches of Guardemar and Santa Pola. They are larger and more open but just as beautiful and a real must if you are into windsurfing.
The region of the Mar Menor is 15 minute drive away and is particularly popular with the Spanish. Here the bars and restaurants reflect the local cuisine and traditions. The area is best known for its excellent water sports on the lagoon. The water temperature in the winter months is around 18 degrees C, the warmest anywhere on the Spanish coast.
Also within a short drive is “Aquapark Waterworld” Go Karting, paintball and horse riding.
“Terra Mitica” – Spain’s answer to Disney World is about an hours drive, just south of Benidorm. Mumdomar Marine & Exotic Animal Park in Benidorm also makes an interesting day out for families.
Towns & Cities
Torrevieja is the closest of the larger towns, just a 15 minute drive. Here you will find shops, bars, marinas, excellent waterfront restaurants, nightclubs and more beaches. Market stalls can be found along the wide palm tree lined promenade most afternoons and evenings. There is also a fun fair during the summer months.

It is a vibrant city that really comes to life in the evening. There is a wonderful Cathedral; old bull ring, shops bars, cafes and restaurants as well as the Football stadium.
The new shopping mall Zenia Boulevard opened in October 2012 and is just a 10 minute drive from the apartment. It is one of the largest malls in Spain and has everything you could wish for in one area for a days shopping and eating, including shops such as Zara, H&M, C&A and even a Primark!
The apartment is less than a two minute walk to the fairway of the challenging 18 hole course at Las Ramblas. Campoamor and the Championship course of Villamartin are within 5 minutes drive offering stunning scenery with that touch of class you would expect in Southern Spain. All offer clubhouse facilities and restaurants. Within 15 minutes drive are the courses of La Finca, the newest of all the courses in the region and La Marquesa.

All of this makes for a true golfers paradise.
