Make a holiday rental home or villa in Orihuela Town, Spain your home away from home

Orihuela Town has a long and fascinating history, being listed on historical documents as far back as the 6th century. The metropolitan area of Orihuela was declared a city in 1707, but this article focus only on the centre of that area, usually referred to as Orihuela Town. 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.

There are a number of interesting monuments worth visiting on a wander around the old town centre, with palaces, churches and cathedrals clearly the order of the day. Perhaps the most frequented are the Gothic Cathedral, which dates back to the 14th century and was formerly a mosque, and the Baroque church of Santo Domingo, which is famous for its sweeping marble staircase. The Palace de Rubalcalva is a great place to start a tour of Orihuela Town, as it is also where the tourist information office can be found.

Another enjoyable stay at the apartment. This is our 4th visit since 2012. High standards still fab.

Great apartment overlooking the course. Made good use of the two sets of clubs available in the apartment. Really nice bar and restaurant on site and definitely worth a visit. Great food ,service and value. Looking forward to our next visit later in year.

Very good but let down by badly worn chairs in conservatory. Otherwise a very nice property.

The nearest shops were in Villamartin Plaza but we did find a small mini-market (on the last day of our stay) at Cheers Bar which was accessible on foot - just past Morgan's Bar. Walking to Villamartin Plaza was not a viable option so a car is a must. Taxi's are good so this did not really detract from our experience. Details of local amenities, bars and restaurants and contact numbers for local Taxi firms would have been useful. Overall the property was very good and we certainly enjoyed our stay.

After staying at Kelly & Terry's Villa for 8 weeks can we say it is the best Villa we have stayed in in Spain not only was it very equipped to cook what ever you wanted but also for comfort with a lovely swimming and patio furniture outside and is very private further more it right in the middle of very good supermarkets and fabulous restaurants near by just one more thing we felt that the owners Kelly/Terry could not do enough for us including a starter pack and a lovely bottle of champagne and send us l lovely Christmas tree so on the above all we can say again is thank you very much for the 8 wonderful weeks we had at you lovely Villa and would not think twice about booking again in the near future Kind Regards Len &.
