The house was in a nice quiet residential development . It is a lovely house and very well equipped.The pool is very clean and well maintained and nicely positioned in the sun but around the house there are many shaded areas, a veranda and a bar area. The nearest beach Guardemar is 10 ish minutes away. We walked to Quesada for refreshments! I particularly enjoyed visiting Rosales. It has a real Spanish feel, a river running through the middle and great Tapas and bars!!
