A charming detached villa on one level with private pool in the original "Los Carteros" part of Las Comunicaciones (San Miguel de Salinas) offering off-road parking, large 10 x 4.5 metre (approx) private pool and beautiful gardens.
Built in 1983 on a 500 m2 plot in a quiet cul-de-sac with a central green area, and with a driveway covered by a pergola for off-road secure parking. The villa comprises a spacious utility area which could serve as a laundry room, office, gym or combination of the above which you pass through to enter the lounge and dining area. The kitchen is independent, fully-fitted and very spacious with both east and south-facing windows. A corridor leads from the lounge to the 3 double bedrooms and 2 shower rooms. There is also a rear door from the lounge area which takes you to the rear terrace and delightful gardens (with real grass!) on the south side of the house.
The property benefits from solar panels for water heating and a satellite dish. Fibre-optic internet connection is available from a reliable local supplier.
Many owners of this style of villa have taken advantage of the opportunity to build an extra floor, possibly with sun terrace, which would offer excellent views towards the Mar Menor, should you choose to do so. The roof space currently offers extra storage room.
The property is within walking distance of both Pimiento's restaurant and Phoenix Nights bar-diner, both of which have occasional wine-tasting, live music, barbecues and quizzes. It's about 2.5 km to the centre of San Miguel de Salinas, and only a short drive to plenty of renowned golf courses, beaches and shopping centres (eg La Fuente centre, La Zenia Boulevard and Villamartin Plaza). So, despite the tranquility and peacefulness of the location, you are not isolated at all. One of our favourite things to do in both winter and summer is jump in the car and enjoy a lovely country drive past the Campoamor and Las Colinas golf courses and in about 15 minutes you are in the lovely seaside resort of Mil Palmeras with its pedestrianised street lined with lots of great places to eat.
We can certainly recommend the area as a great place to live or holiday, so if you like the look of this charming villa, give us a call to arrange a viewing and discuss how it could be your own Spanish home!

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!
