                                                                                                      5 of 5

Three excellent bedrooms, two bathrooms including a good shower. Lovely lounge and dining room.After seeing the picture I thought the apartment might be a little jaded but it was even better than the pictures. As an old age couple we are unlikely to return to Torrevieja, as we like to move around, however if we ever did return we would have no hestitation in renting this apartment again. it is only a 15 minute walk from the bus. Just over 5 minutes to the prom and beach. Highly recommended

The key holders were there to show us around and show us where everything was even the bottle of wine waiting for us in the fridge (nice touch) the property is very new and all the fixtures and fittings are quality . Then there is the outside which made our holiday one of our best. We have a 3 and 1 year old so eating out after long days on the beach can be challenging . so with the garden been 3g turf very secure and also including a hot tub which kept our 3 year old entertaind every night was great . the bbq area is brilliant and the view of the sea is beautiful . this is a great place to spend evenings as you can put kids to bed with doors open and have eyes on them when relaxing with a glass of wine . If you plan a trip hear you do need to hire a car but this is something I always do when renting villas etc we will definitely be looking to rebook next year if Anne will have us .
