About the property

Overlooking pool, sleeps 4, air con & TV close to all amenities. Adorable.

Stylish, quality, ground floor apartment, built in 2006 to a unique design. Quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

Traffic-free development is quiet, relaxing for you, safe for your kids.

Fully furnished apartment with air conditioning in the lounge, main double bedroom and the second bedroom. There is a computer enabled 40' Flat Screen TV (which has most of the Freeview UK Channels via an internet TV box), Wi-Fi which has been upgraded to 30mb fibre optic broadband, DVD player and radio/CD player and iPod dock. Extensively equipped kitchen including a dishwasher to save you washing up!

The en-suite bathroom has a shower, & bath, whilst the main shower room has, shower, bidet, toilet & washbasin. Both bathrooms now have heated towel rails.

The main bedroom is a double and the second bedroom has twin single beds.

In the rear court yard there is an LG washing machine and an iron and ironing board just in case you need to do any laundry before you go home.

The patio/terrace overlooks the gated communal pool. A 5 minute stroll takes you to the main shopping, restaurants and bars and recently opened Punta Marina commercial centre.The beach is a 10 minute stroll away straight down the road. You will find numerous bars and restaurants within easy walking distance, Torrevieja and the famous beaches of La Zenia and Cabo Roig are just 5 minutes drive.

Becoming more famous is La Zenia Boulevard shopping centre. Look it up, great shopping and great restuarants. This is a ten minute cycle ride away (it takes about the same in a car!).

Further afield Benidorm is an hour and a half drive.

Golf Courses in the Area: 'Villamartin is one of the best courses in Spain, probably the best in this region and also hosted the Spanish Open' Fore! magazine January 2000.

Las Ramblas, the incredible water hazards-the ramblas-which make this golf course different from all the others in the area. Take plenty of balls. You'll need them'. Fore! magazine January 2000.

La Finca, a new course opened in 2002.

Campoamour, built in two valleys, lush fairways and fast greens with palm, pine and orange trees. Very smart clubhouse restaurant and bars.

All these courses are about 10-15 miles away. Personally I prefer the sun, sea and sandy beaches to the greens but there are plenty of greens to go at!

Go-karting & Water Parks: There is a good Go-Karting circuit a mile down the N332 which is absolutely great fun for kids of all ages.

For a great day out there is the water park in Torrevieja. Keep costs down by taking your own picnic and enjoy the water flumes and slides. There are videos of what to expect on you tube if you do a search on Torrevieja water park Aquapolis. If you look hard enough you can usually find some discount vouchers on the entry fees.

Terra Mitica In Benidorm is 75 minutes away and well worth a visit especially is you want to keep the kids amused.

Eating out: You don't go on holiday to do the cooking. The kitchen is fully equipped with all that you need to cook if you want to, but there are plenty of restaurants offering menus from all parts of the globe in Torrevieja. WithIn easy walking distance are enough restaurants to last a week without eating in the same place twice. There is an impressive looking Japanese/Chinese restaurant housed in a traditional Chinese pagoda type building about 500m down the road if you want a special celebration meal. Patio Andaluz is a Spanish restaurant that enjoys an excellent reputation amongst the locals, you need to book early. If it is your birthday, Puccini's will feed you for free! (Groups of 4 or more). If you drive up to Villamartin Plaza (10 minutes tops) there are umpteen restaurants, and I'd recommend going at least once. Eduardo's is quite a nice place but they are all of a good standard and the plaza itself does have a bit of a buzz about it. .

About Gareth Griffith

Janet and I have been married for quite a few years and now that the mortgage on our home in England came to an end bought this apartment to benefit from cheap flights and the Spanish sunshine. Janet and I both love walking in the Derbyshire Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales with our black Labrador Belle. We love the English pubs and would never leave England for good but the British Winter isn't as good as it could be and as Janet is a sun lover and I like the beaches, Spain was a good choice.

Gareth Griffith purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Gareth Griffith chose Los Altos

These apartments are of a higher quality than most and they benefit from having well maintained gardens and pools. The location is brilliant. On the urbanisation it is right in front of the pool and enjoys full sunshine in the morning and the benefit of shade when it is too hot in the afternoon.

If you want sun in the afternoon it is easy to nip over into the pool area.

There local amenities are all close by but not so close that they create any noise nuisance.

It is our holiday home too. We have done our best to ensure that it has all the things that we need to have a comfortable holiday and that the fixtures and fittings are of a decent standard.

Flights to and from Alicante or Murcia airport are readily available throughout the year at reasonable cost from almost all UK airports.

We also visit off peak and visit Murcia, Valencia, Benidorm and even Granada when the weather is not at sunbathing standard!

What makes this apartment unique

There is nothing unique about this property. There are lots of similar apartments but very few have all the fixtures and fittings that come as standard in our apartment.

The community is very multicultural and everyone has a smattering of English our neighbours are from Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Ireland England Belgium and of course Spain

This lovely apartment is furnished with the best quality furniture package from the highly thought of Masquemeubles emporium which also furnished the show house on this prestigious development. The patio doors lead on to the large patio which is equipped with table and chairs overlooking the garden, and communal pool area. The patio area has built-in down lighters to provide ambient lighting for your evening drinks when the sun has gone down. Cool-box with four ice packs for your jolly picnics on the beach but please bring your own beach towels. The apartment is strictly non smoking inside. The apartment is on the ground floor but there are six steps to the front door and nine from the patio to the lawn which will prove difficult for wheelchair users. 2011 We had to introduce a meter for the use of the air-conditioning units due to some guests taking advantage of unlimited use to run them constantly. The meter takes 1€ and 2€ coins and is very economical to run.

Superb apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this beautiful apartment from 7th April 2018 for a lovely relaxing week. Have stayed on this site before but this was our first time in this particular apartment. It is immaculately clean with every facility you would need for your stay. Plenty of towels which I find is rare. Beautiful garden and patio area with a great pool view. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment and complex. Will definetly be booking again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for those kind comments and for taking time to write your review, we do appreciate it.As we are spending more time ourselves in Spain we want our apartment to be welcoming and comfortable for our own benefit too. We love sitting on the patio in the sunshine for breakfast, the gardeners have been working hard to get the gardens looking good and giving us a nice view to admire.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your continued custom! Thank you too for recommending our place to your family and friends. I know that another of your relatives has stayed this year following your recommendation. We are using the apartment more now that we are retired and want to make the apartment a great place to stay for both ourselves and our guests. You are decidedly correct in that we've also got a great location too! Next year the apartments should be looking like new again as the whole urbanisation is having a complete refurbishment over the winter months.

Great place in a lovely position, by the pool

  • 5 of 5

Our second easter break here at gareths place and well worth the visit. We love this place, it's like staying at your own home as gareth (the owner) has the place kitted out like his own home. Quality furniture that makes all the difference. We ventured further this year and found the go-karts - a fantastic way to spend some time before strolling down to Sunrise bar on the waterfront. very handy place to be in overall, with la Zenia Boulevard being only five minutes down the road, beaches within walking distance and a great pool to use if you want to stay close to home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. The apartment is used by us for six months of the year, so it is a second home to us. We like to have somewhere nice to come home to and we're happy that our guests enjoy it too. There is so much to see and do within a short walking distance that a fortnight won't be enough time to explore everywhere.

A fantastic apartment with a brilliant location. We (myself and my partner) had a lovely week in glorious weather in this clean, spacious apartment. Everything you could ask for and only a few steps to the pool. Gareth and the key holder (Rich) were very helpful as well as the local community living in the other apartments. Thank you!

Car: not necessary

Los Altos is 10 min drive south of Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca . The apartment is on a development of Andalucian style, classy low rise buildings about 500 metres from the N332 coast road. Our apartment overlooks the communal pool and has its own small garden. Local amenities at Punta Prima are all within very easy walking distance. A car isn't essential but would certainly add to your holiday as there are loads of great beaches within 10 minutes drive, Cabo Roig and La Zenia are two favourites.Further afield the historic cities of Cartagena, Elche Orihuela & Murcia are all worth a visit. If you prefer to use public transport there's an hourly bus service to Torrevieja. Further afield (about 40 min drive) there are the unspoilt, very scenic beaches at Calblanque with water so clear you can see fishes swimming round your feet. The Mar Menor and La Manga also merit exploring on a day trip. There are good motorway connections to both Alicante and Murcia Airport.

Other Activities: tennis courts 500m down the road, Go-Kart 1500m

Golf: You might want to book in advance from home to make sure you get to play where you want to, when you want to. Villamartin, Las Ramblas, Campoamor and La Finca are the names to look out for. If you have the inclination to travel further La Manga is about 30-40 minutes to the south.

The views over Campoamor are very nice and the terrace is a great place to have a beer and watch the sun go down.

If you aren't a golf fan just lie on the beaches and get some Costa Blanca sunshine whilst your partner enjoys some superb courses.

There is a hire shop locally if you can't bring your own clubs.

Ski: You can hire Jet Skis and speed boats at Cabo Roig Marina which is about 10 minutes to the south.

There are some bars and restaurants that the rest of the family can sit at and watch you having fun in the sun. Beware of having a drink before you try to hire your boat as they won't hire you any equipment if they feel that you've had an alcoholic beverage or two! Terry Wogan had a place in Cabo Roig but don't let that put you off as he's sold up and moved on.

You can get to Cabo Roig by following the Coastal Path but it is a long walk!
