A spacious traditional Spanish cottage with recent modernisation. Entrances to the front and rear, and with a layout that flows around a central patio area with beautiful, traditional blue and white tiles. The main entrance leads into a hallway from which the 3 double bedrooms, lounge, separate kitchen, shower room and WC are distributed. There is also a large and very pleasant conservatory area with direct access to the sunny central patio courtyard. To the rear of this courtyard is a workshop/utility room with access to the street on the other side of the house. The property faces south, so plenty of light enters into the lounge on the street-side of the house, but it was built to be well-insulated against the heat and cold, so you will probably find no need to install air-conditioning.
If you are disappointed by the size of the kitchens in more modern Spanish apartments and houses, you will be very pleased with this one, as it is MUCH larger than average, with plenty of cupboard space and worktops. There is even an open fireplace to keep you cosy in the winter!
Torremendo is a small Spanish village but with sufficient amenities that you do not have to be reliant on trips to nearby towns, since there is a small supermarket, butchers, bakers, 5 or 6 bar/restaurants, pharmacy, medical centre, bank, lottery shop (within one of the bars) and sports centre. The outdoor swimming pool is open June, July August and September and there are adjoining tennis courts. The pool has a bar ("The Cantina") with live music and great food, with homemade paellas and pizzas a speciality.
The location is typically Spanish, and it´s an ideal place to sink into the local culture, especially at fiesta time, but there´s also a Monday afternoon club (after the weekly market) for the ex-pats to get together for a coffee and a chat.
You will find the prices for food and drink very reasonable in Torremendo, where you can wine and dine at a fraction of the price of some coastal resorts!
Torremendo is famous for the beautiful lake of La Pedrera which is just a short walk from the village itself and offers stunning scenery. The "lake" is actually the most important reservoir in the Alicante region, and is famous for its aquamarine waters set amongst the surrounding hills. There are two outdoor leisure centres close to the lake offering a wide range of activities such as horse-riding, quad-biking, kayaking, archery etc
Torremendo also has a church and primary school. The nearby towns of San Miguel de Salinas, Los Montesinos and Orihuela are only a short drive away. The beaches of Orihuela Costa and Torrevieja are only a 20 minute drive away approximately, and Guardamar del Segura is just 25 minutes drive. Alicante airport is 45 minutes.
So, if you´re looking for a more typically Spanish experience for your holidays or new life abroad, in a beautiful location, Torremendo could be the ideal place!
