This 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom detached villa in the tranquil and beautiful residential area of Villasmaría (Ciudad de las Comunicaciones) on the slopes of the Sierra Escalona, just 2 km south of the town of San Miguel de Salinas, has plenty of appeal. The bedrooms are distributed 2 on the ground floor, and 2 upstairs (one with en-suite bathroom, and one with patio doors leading onto a sun terrace to the rear of the property. 3 of the bedrooms have their own entrance, whereas the fourth bedroom upstairs is accessed via the master bedroom. Both upstairs bedrooms have access to a small rear patio which is very private. Upstairs there is also a conservatory on an additional sun terrace with amazing views. Downstairs the lounge, dining area and kitchen are open-plan, and besides the 2 ground floor bedrooms (with access via patio doors to the rear garden area) there is also a shared bathroom. The property has been maintained to a high standard, and benefits from air-conditioning, ceiling fans and an alarm system. Patio doors lead out onto a semi-circular sun terrace with ornamental balustrades which overlooks the private swimming pool. The pool itself is surrounded by white balustrades which separate the swimming pool from the rest of the garden. There is off-road parking and a car port to keep your vehicle out of the summer sun. The location of the villa on the estate is excellent, being at the highest point with wonderful views of the salt lake and Mediterranean in the distance, and with the unspoilt pine forest to the rear (which you can access at the top of the street, approximately 80 metres from the property, and then walk for hours and hours
It is possible to walk into San Miguel on a route with very little traffic. The route is 2.5km (about half an hour walk downhill mainly) and brings you out at the roundabout in San Miguel with 4 bar-restaurants (O´Neills, Market Street Restaurant, Olive Tree Restaurant and Eddy´s bar). The Alingui restaurant, located in the impressive Castillo de Conesa castle is on this route, located only 1.6km (approx 20 minute walk) from the property. There is another excellent restaurant (Pimientos), also about 20 minutes walk from the property. Pimientos organise wine-tasting evening and weekends, so if your preference is for fine dining and fine wines, then you won´t go wrong here! The local taxi service is excellent too, so if you over-indulge, you don´t have to walk home!
There are plenty of golf courses in the area, and you will have a choice of several beaches, our favourite being Mil Palmeras (recently listed amongst Spain´s top 10 beaches by a national Spanish newspaper), and to get there it is only a 30 minute drive through beautiful countryside (past Campoamor and Las Colinas golf courses), usually with very little traffic.

San Miguel de Salinas
San Miguel de Salinas is a very popular Spanish town just 15 minutes drive from the beaches of Mil Palmeras, Campoamor, Cabo Roig, La Zenia, Torrevieja, La Mata, Guardamar etc and surrounded by beautiful countryside which includes citrus and almond groves and the national park of Sierra Escalona right on our doorstep. You can walk and cycle for miles along the canal which runs right next to the town.
There are a great variety of bars and restaurants, both Spanish and international (almost 30 in the town centre alone, which means the annual tapas run event is very popular!!). If you are looking for a holiday destination or a place to live all year round, San Miguel is a great choice as it has all amenities (primary and secondary schools with excellent reputations, banks, health centre which never closes, 3 pharmacies, large outdoor swimming pool, football and athletics stadium, 5-a-side football pitch, tennis courts, padel courts, basketball courts, petanca, crown green bowls etc) and a healthy mix of Spanish and foreign neighbours.
The pace of life is gentle and relaxing, and prices in the bars tend to be more reasonable than the coast (a glass of good red wine from the barrel will set you back just 50 centimos in some of the bars). The weekly Wednesday street market is a great opportunity to stock up on locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, hams, cheeses, olives, clothes and shoes etc, before having a drink and tapas in one of our friendly tavernas!
There is a good local taxi service and buses run several times daily to Torrevieja, Orihuela and Murcia. Alicante and Murcia airport are both approx 40 mins drive away. San Miguel is a place where you can enjoy a taste of traditional Spanish life and culture, without foregoing the benefits of top-class facilities and amenities. It is a very friendly place too, which we think you will love!
