Orihuela Town has a long and fascinating history, being listed on historical documents as far back as the 6th century.

The town is the historical and cultural capital of the region, and offers a good quality holiday rental accommodation that is both near the sea, but also within touching distance of other important cities such as Murcia and Elche, as well as the remainder of the Orihuela municipality.

                                                              Excellent accomodation

                                                              We booked this accomodation for 8 weeks and have been here for nearly 3 weeks. The accomodation is really well equipped and was very clean when we arrived. The pool is lovely and the urbanisation is very nice. There are a few bars and eating places. We love the nearby town of Los Montesinos. Everywhere is so close, for example the beach is about a 15 minute drive away. I would definately recommend staying here.

                                                              The apartment was just as pictured and described, with everything needed for a great week's holiday; well equipped kitchen, very clean, plenty of towels, TV & WiFi and extras like the games room and bikes. Helpful & swift communication from the owner, with useful guides for what to do in the town and area, and also comprehensive guide to the apartment, so nothing was unexplained. Roof top pool 'refreshing' but just tolerable given the time of year (probably better June onwards) Local hosts (Bruce & June) on hand for any queries, not that we had any. Thanks for the house. Graham & family

                                                              Just back from our 4th(!) visit to this wonderful holiday house , we absolutely love it here ,and are more than happy to recommend it. Situated in the small Spanish village of Torremendo nestled in the national park area , with it's rolling hills and orange groves, close to the Embalse de Pedrera reservior, it's is both idyllic and quiet. The house itself, is part of small complex , it's modern and very well appointed , a perfect place to relax , and there's the pool as well ! Both the cleaner and caretaker are English residents on the complex and do a fantastic job keeping the place immaculate. The village is typically Spanish with restaurants and bars , some shops and a bank . Torremendo is a great base to stay , it's close enough to the lovely beaches of the Costa blanca, but also close to the national parks and the historically interesting city of Murcia . If you're keen cyclist like us , this area has long been a mecca for cycling with it's quiet roads and stunning scenery. I'm already looking forward to my next visit !!
