Holiday Grnd Floor Apartment in Las Ramblas Golf Course, Orihuela Costa, Villamartin
Situated on the southern Costa Blanca, 40 minutes south of the cosmopolitan city of Alicante and 30 minutes from the beautiful historic city of Murcia, Las Ramblas golf complex is situated in a tranquil, rugged countryside location 5 minutes drive from the fabulous beaches of Orihuela Costa.
Las Ramblas is an attractive, peaceful, secure, gated community, boasting spectacular views over the 18 hole golf course to the sea beyond. Immediately next to Las Ramblas are two further 18 hole courses: Real Campoamor and the championship course of Villamartin.
The area is reputed for its many leisure facilities and numerous blue flag beaches, all within easy reach of the apartment. Beaches range from the smaller local bays, beaches bordering the still (and very warm) waters of the Mar Menor (the inland saltwater lagoon created by the La Manga strip) and the long, unspoiled beaches of Guardamar and La Marina.
We consider the apartment much more as a "second home" rather than a holiday apartment and, as such, it is furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Our aim is to ensure that you fee "at home" when you stay and that you have everything to enable a comfortable and enjoyable visit, whether it be for golf, the beach or a Winter break. In short, we want you to come back and, of course, to tell your friends about us.
The apartment is bright and sunny and is tiled throughout with beautiful marble flooring. There are three double bedrooms with plenty of storage space and lots of wooden clothes hangers - we know how annoying it is to arrive somewhere and not to be able to hang up all your clothes!
There is a full size bathroom with a shower and also an en-suite shower room to the master bedroom.
There are two private terraces; a smaller terrace is accessed from the master bedroom (perfect for morning coffee or a late night-cap) and the main terrace is accessed from the sitting room. The main terrace is south facing and enjoys the sun from about 10:30am until sunset. There are dining facilities for six people, a shaded area, a sunbathing area and a real "kettle" BBQ - no cheating with gas! The terrace is planted with hibiscus, oleanders and bourgainvillea.
The sitting area is modern and bright, with comfortable seating and an open log fire for those Autumn or Spring evenings.
The apartment is fully air conditioned and heated.
The dining area has seating for six people and a display cabinet containing a full dinner service, with all necessary glasses and serving dishes for a full scale dinner party.
The American style kitchen is semi open plan and leads to a utility area. All walls are marble and all worktops in granite and we are sure you will find just about all the equipment you would have at home. If not, please tell us and we'll make sure it's there next time...
The shared swimming pool is about 2 minutes walk away. It is an interesting pool with rock features, a waterfall and a fountain - with a grassy area for sunbathing all around. The pool is of gently graduating depth, so small children can play safely in the water at one end, whilst you swim at the other.
Las Ramblas is extremely peaceful - you can BBQ on the terrace and often not hear or see a soul - just the sounds of the crickets... However, within very easy driving distance are a whole range of fabulous restaurants to cater for all tastes and budgets. Some are simple and some offer truly gastronomic experiences in very smart settings. The closest restaurant is 3 minutes drive away - and many more are within 5 minutes drive...
Alternatively, within 15 minutes drive, you can stroll along the sea front at Torrevieja, enjoy a drink and then eat in one of the many restaurant terraces, looking out to the Mediterranean.
20 minutes drive in the other direction will take you to the late night Spanish town of San Pedro or the sea-front bars of Lo Pagan, which are bustling with people until the early hours of the morning each weekend!
The cities of Murcia ("Capital of Baroque"), Cartagena (with its amphitheatre and Roman remains), Elche (Europe's greatest palm grove) and Alicante (with its ancient hilltop castle) are all within easy reach and have much to see, apart from offering fantastic restaurants and shops. For the more energetic, there are fabulous walks in the National Park of the Sierra del Espuna within 30 minutes drive...
