Peaceful location with views across the salt lake from the patio of this ground floor duplex apartment sleeping 4 in Banos de Europa, Torrevieja.

Torrevieja is surrounded by two large natural saltwater lagoons. It is said to be good for sufferers of arthritis, asthma and rheumatism and the area is regarded by the World Health Organisation as having the healthiest climate in Europe.

Situated midway between the airports of Alicante and Murcia with beaches carrying the European Blue Flag Torrevieja has many local attractions including an aqua park, bowling alley, cinema, casino and sports complex. There are also many fine golf courses nearby including Villamartin and Las Ramblas. For bowling fans, there is a club a few minutes drive away from the apartment which is open to non-members on Sundays and Tuesdays with equipment for hire at a small charge.

There are many daily markets in the neighbouring towns, but Torrevieja has the largest in the region which takes over a large area on a Friday morning. If you enjoy local markets, this one cannot be missed. There is also a large one on a Sunday morning in a neighbouring town which is called "the English market" locally.

A cycle/pedestrian/joggers path passes close to the property which will take you to the sea front or in the other direction, to the other salt lake which is a natural habitat for several migratory birds. A birdwatchers paradise, it is located in a conservation area. The use of two bicycles is included in the rental price.

Within a half hours stroll (minutes by car) the seafront can be reached with its numerous sandy beaches and cafes. There is also a marina, a pier and a fair with an avenue of small market stores nearby which are open throughout the evening.

If you prefer to go by bus, the bus stop is located 5 minutes away with a half hourly service which will take you to the seafront or the other amenities. A new bus stop has recently been erected closer to the property.

The apartment is new and ideally situated in a quiet location beside the largest of the saltwater lakes but only minutes by car from the many sandy Blue Flag beaches and coves along the coast. The salt lake gradually turns pink during the day and is easily accessed being opposite the complex. It is very popular in the summer months for those who enjoy the reputed therapeutic powers of taking a mud bath or simply floating around in its warm salt waters. The idea is to cover certain parts of the body with its dark mud and allow it to dry in the sun, before washing it off in the lake.

The property is located in a small cul-de-sac with no passing traffic and very friendly neighbours. At the end of the access road (no cars to be parked on the access road, please, although you can park in the surrounding roads) there is the use of a well-maintained secluded communal swimming pool which is accessed by card. For the cooler months, the swimming pool is heated by solar heaters. (Unfortunately if the card is lost I must ask for 10 euros for a replacement.)

There is also an ever-expanding hypermarket complex a 15 minutes stroll away with Carrefour, Aldi, Lidl, Mac Donald's and the new Habaneras shopping centre with its numerous shops. Within 10 minutes walk are several little bars and cafes including ubiquitous Chinese restaurants. In my experience they are all very reasonably priced compared to the UK.

The apartment consists of a living room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms with one double and two single beds. The whole apartment is decorated white with terracotta brown tiles. There are fans for the hot days and air conditioning which alternates for the cooler days for heating.

The washing machine and microwave oven are located on the enclosed patio at the back.

Digital TV is available with many English channels, including BBC 1, 2, ITV 1, Channel, 4 and 5 and Sky Movies and 3 sports channels. There are also 5 Spanish channels.

Approaching the apartment there are three small steps up to the veranda and front door but otherwise everything is on one floor. The front patio area is tiled and ideal for lounging. In view of its situation there is no baking sun early in the morning but the sun stays on the patio from mid morning through the evening most of the year making it a lovely location to eat out on and enjoy the spectacular sunsets across the lake. There is a table and chairs for use on the patio and a light-weight sun loungers with two smaller matching chairs to take to the pool or beach.

Local shops and cafes, hypermarket shops, salt lake, beaches and other amenities are all within easy reach by walking, cycling or local bus.

Cars however can be hired from either Alicante or Murcia airports. Any food or drink items can also be purchased for you prior to arrival at cost plus ten per cent by the same person who will collect from the airport. If you decide you do not want to hire a car but take advantage of the collection service, a local bus passes near to the property every half an hour making a circular journey passing by the sea front for 90 cents.

Special Points:
The apartment is located between Alicante and Murcia airports. My personal preference is Murcia airport as it is very small and there is no delay in collecting baggage. Both Alicante and Murcia airports are reached by many low-cost airlines from regional airports and Torrevieja is located half way between the two. However, it does seem the earlier you book the low-cost airlines, the cheaper they are!

Washing machine, oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, two bicycles, sandwich maker, electric kettle, toaster, double bed and two single beds, 4 dining chairs, dining table, cutlery, crockery and glasses, ironing board and iron, sofa and two collapsible easy chairs.

Digital TV with many English satellite channels including 3 Sky sports and five Spanish channels; English digital radio

Patio and veranda with views across salt lake which gradually turns pink later in day and table with four chairs. Beach umbrella. Lightweight sun Loungers and two aluminium beach chairs.

No smoking please.

Just a quick note to say that we really enjoyed our few days in your apartment, it was lovely, we came away wishing we could have stayed longer, we had dinner twice at the best value for money restaurant Royals just round the corner. Please feel free to add my comments to your website There were so many things we packed into our weekend, the apartment was spotless my husband and daughter made use of the bikes ( which was a laugh ) and we used the bus service into Torrevieja costing 1 euro each. A truly brilliant weekend.
