3 bedroom Villa in Orihuela Costa
Le Mans residential complex – the luxury complex, located in the Orihuela Costa region of the Alicante province.
The Le Mans residential complex is made up of semi-detached villas. Each property is built on one floor and solarium. There are 3 bedrooms (2 en suite), 3 bathrooms, living room, kitchen open to the living room with large windows and access to a large semi-covered terrace and pool.
With about 320 days of sunshine, it’s the most popular stretch of the Costa Blanca. With leisure harbours, golf courses, a shopping centre and a variety of tempting restaurants.
The Orihuela Costa stretches in a triangle from the city of Orihuela to the 16 kilometres of coastline panning the Mediterranean. The varied landscape combines sierras, orchards and palm groves, but it’s the succession of resort towns, rocky headlands and sandy coves that have made it popular with tourists. Many of the resorts have disabled facilities (like the lifts up the seawall surrounding Punta Prima), kid’s playgrounds and a range of sports amenities, making the area attractive to people at all stages of life, from young families to retirees.
Popular areas include Playa De Punta Prima, Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cabo Roig, Campoamor, Playa Mil Palmeras, Pilar de la Horadada and Torrevieja. There’s plenty of variation; Campoamor is a resort with a leisure harbour whereas the Playa Flamenco has a string of white sandy coves with shallow paddling flats. Pilar de la Horadada combines a quiet old town with beaches and a marina at Torre de la Horadada. Originally a salt-mining centre, Torrevieja is now a bustling metropolis and one of the fastest growing cities in Spain.
Coastal walking and cycling paths run through the nearby pine woods and protected sand dunes. You’re never far from the popular La Zenia Boulevard shopping centre and a lively strip of restaurants and bars. The rich cultural and historical past of Orihuela has left a large number of monuments including Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance churches, convents and palaces. Sports include golfing, water sports, horse riding and tennis. The diet in Orihuela is a healthy Mediterranean one rich in fish, vegetables, olive oil, rice and fruit. The local Jalon valley produces a very fine Moscatel wine.
It’s home to the Costa Blanca’s best value beach properties, from apartments, duplexes and quads to townhouses. Budget a little more for a two-bedroom apartment or a townhouse near the beach or head just a five-minute drive inland to pay slightly less.
Visitors to Orihuela generally use the busier Alicante airport but Murcia is closer. There are no coastal stops but trains frequent Orihuela station. Tourists are so important to the town that there have been some large-scale improvements in public transport in the last decade. A network of bus routes connecting the capital with the rest of the region and the resorts with one another, including one linking all the beaches with the Torrevieja Hospital run to a regular timetable. There are taxi ranks in the Campomar and Playa Flamenca resorts and of course, there are cycle paths that connect most of the beaches.
There are plenty of healthcare options along this coast. From doctors to dentists, there are a plethora of choices on offer, some even specialising in Northern European languages like Swedish, English and German. There is a smaller hospital in Cabo Roig and a large University hospital in Torrevieja.
House prices in the region vary depending on the resort you choose but offer good value in comparison to other Costas. General groceries and amenities are in line with the rest of Spain but there’s a wide range of budgetary options for socialising and travelling — with no need for running a car.
