A short walk from the apartment takes you to the superb and varied beaches from busy and sandy to small pebble coves, many of which are blue flag. There is a pleasant and scenic walk along the coast to Playa Flamenca, La Zenia for water sports, Cabo Roig and Punta Prima. The popular Flamenca Beach commercial centre is only a short stroll from the apartment, where you will find many bars, restaurants, shops and banks. Also nearby is a Go Kart track. There is an Aqua park just outside Torrevieja which also boasts a marina and long promenade. The fantastic Terra Mitica theme park, Terra Natura zoo park and Aqua Natura water park are about 90 mins away by car near Benidorm. Please note there is no smoking inside the apartment and no pets.

About Andrew Lennon
Hi, we are a family of 4 from the North West of England. We bought our apartment in 2006 so that we could enjoy family holidays in the Spanish sun.
Andrew Lennon purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Andrew Lennon chose Orihuela
We chose the apartment for the afternoon and evening sunshine as it is west facing and on the quieter side of the complex. It also boasts a view over one of the swimming pools, allowing us to keep an eye on the children enjoying themselves in the pool and garden, while we relax on the balcony with a good book and glass of the excellent local vino. The complex is secure and safe, the surrounding area is lively without being rowdy. The apartment itself is very quiet in the evenings.
What makes this Apartment unique
Everything you could possibly want on holiday is in walking distance. Or if you prefer the road network is excellent and there are plenty things to do and see if you hire a car, from superb golf courses, scuba diving, aqua parks, horse riding to name but a few.

Lovely Place, plenty of shops, restaurants & Bars
The Apartment is nice & clean with everything that you would need & has a lovely pool view but would benefit from Air Con.
Nothing was too much trouble & every email I sent asking questions was answered with all the info I required. The overall experience from booking, to arriving was very smooth.
Andy Little picked us up from the Airport & was very informative about the area & gave us some good advice. The welcoming bottle of Sangria was well appreciated especially as we landed in the middle of a Heatwave.
There is a lot to do for all ages & the resort is very flat which would benefit anyone with mobility issues. All in all we had a very relaxing holiday & won’t hesitate to return next year.
Fantastic apartment in great location.
Lovely apartment with access to a very nice pool. Very secure and nice touch to receive a bottle of sangria chilling in the fridge on arrival.
Thank you very much for the comments, I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back next year.
The property was adequate for a holiday.
The property was very clean, tidy and well equipped. There were plenty of chairs/loungers
for anyone wanting to sunbath outside around the pool area or take to the beach. The complex itself was very secure and very clean and tidy. The apartment has its own parking spot and the owner has now installed Wi- Fi which is an added bonus. If you are wanting to go to the nearest beach it is approximately 10/15 minutes to walk but you have to negotiate the main road the N332 which is very busy. The easiest way is probably to drive down to Playa Flamenco beach if you have a car but my family found the pool area outside the apartment to be fine.
The owners local agent Andy Little was very helpful in fact the first day we arrived we used the toaster which immediately tripped the electric which as it happened we did know how to re-set but I mentioned to Andy that there was a problem with the toaster and 20 minutes later he arrived with a new one. How good is that service.
Thanks a lot for the comments, I'm really glad you all had a good holiday.
Love La Calma, really good location short walk to shops, bars, restaurants and beach. The apartment was lovely and clean and was fully equipped with all you would need for a self catering holiday. Andy the agent was brilliant. I forgot my passports in the apartment and he raced all the way to the airport for me so I never missed my flight. Would recommend.
Well equipped, comfortable and spacious
We had a great time, fabulous complex
Disappointing will not be booking again.
Apartment was shabby in comparison to others I've stayed in. The beds were metal uncomfortable and very noisy, bedding was sparse one very flat pillow each.Shower curtain was disgusting very disappointing as the owner was quite helpful when booking.
Thanks for the comments which I've taken on board and hopefully resolved.
I have spoken to my agent and this should not have happened in the first place and will not happen again.
Bedding, towels and shower curtains were all replaced on receipt of the review.
I have also replaced all the beds and mattresses; there is now a brand new double bed in the master bedroom and 2 new single beds in the second room.
Please note my agent lives on site, is easily contactable and will address any issues or problems as soon as possible.
