The Hot Tub at night
At the rear of the villa there can be found a secluded area with a rose arbour featuring roses from the Victorian era, selected for their perfume. This is where the outdoor table tennis table is located along with a seating area. This area is a suntrap in the afternoon and ideal for the serious sun bathers.
This unusually spacious villa is set in a walled garden of just under 1000 sq metres looking out towards the natural salt lake nature reserve of La Mata and beyond to Torrevieja and the sea.
The gardens surrounding the villa have been designed to form room like settings - firstly the drive area with its cactus garden on one side and the palms and fruit trees consisting of lemon, lime and grapefruit on the other. The lime and grapefruit trees are still a little young, but the established lemon tree carries mature fruit throughout the year and is perfect for the evening gin and tonic.
The side of the house has been planted with lush, tropical plants which surround the Tiki House and the luxury Hot Tub/ Spa. This spa can be heated and gives a luxury spa experience for up to 6 people - perfect relaxation after sightseeing or that strenuous game of golf.

The villa is fitted with an alarm system linked to a central control room and the police. Guests will be given the alarm codes prior to their holiday. All doors and windows are fitted with external grilles for your security. Climate/Air conditioning/Heating
This area of Spain enjoys an extremely sunny micro-climate with typically 320 days sunshine per year. The temperatures are generally between 10 -15 degrees C higher than those in the UK at any given time. Today for example it is 18 degrees C in Stafford and 30degrees C in Alicante.
This means that you can normally sit outside in the evening in shirtsleeves from May to September. Outside those months it will be warm in the sunshine during the day but cool at night reaching down to just a few degrees above freezing in the depths of winter.
To cope with all this in the summer we have blinds on all the windows to keep out the fiercest summer sun and air conditioning units in the living areas and the master bedrooms the other two bedrooms and most living areas also have ceiling fans.
In the winter the air conditioning units turn into air heating units, there is underfloor heating in master bathroom1 and optional oil fired central heating throughout the villa. There is also an optional gas fire in the lounge.
The management company can action these optional requirements locally as required.
All linens, towels and pool towels are provided.
The villa is maintained by a local English management company who are available 24/7 for any urgent issues. They arrange for the villa to be cleaned and checked in between rental periods all we ask is that the villa is respected and left in a tidy state when you leave.
They can also arrange for any car hire (either locally or at the airport ) or any airport transfers.
The villa is positioned where shops supermarkets, restaurants, bars and the country club are within walking distance, and there is a bus service to a lot of the local towns. However a car would enable guest to explore even more of the area
Finally The roof with a view.
On the roof of the villa is a large solarium where you can either take the sun during the day or sit in the evening with a drink just looking out at the views and the lights of Torrevieja in the distance while recovering from all the activities that this villa and the surrounding area have to offer!
