Guardamar is a picturesque town with one of the largest beaches in Spain, measuring 11 kilometers. The sun, sand and sea make up the whole Guardamar experience, as it epitomises the typical summer seaside getaway.
Apart from the superb beachside with miles of clean golden sand, there are plenty of other things to do, including enjoying healthy, delicious Mediterranean food in the many restaurants and typical Spanish bars which are open for lunch and dinner or even a quick merienda by the shore. Guardamar exudes a very laidback vibe, a carefree feel that entices travellers to immerse themselves in the culture.
Leisurely strolls by the beach or an evening walk to the park or beach side pine forest are just some of the relaxing activities worth indulging in. On Wednesdays, the laidback town transforms into a mad, whirlwind of activity, with the market in the center of town, where buyers and sellers gather to barter their wares.
All activities are done at a leisurely pace, devoid of the hustle and bustle of cosmopolitan living. Of course, like all Spanish towns, Guardamar knows how to party. It comes alive at fiesta time, when the sun comes down. A fantastic street party entices both local residents and tourists to meet and revel the night away.
Guardamar is a not just an excellent holiday destination, but is ideal for all year round living, with its mild winters, great schools, bus services and a large multitude of amenities.
Just 3 kilometers away, is El Raso, a clean and well looked after urbanisation belonging to Guardamar, made up of delightful villas and town houses, for those who wish to be on the fringe of the town. El Raso is situated on the edge of a beautiful nature reserve which is ideal for walking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching and picnicking. There are a selection of amenities in El Raso, including several restaurants and bars, a vets, a beauticians and a mini supermarket, otherwise there is a bus route which can take you to the beach or into Guardamar center, or for those of you who wish to use a car, it is only a 5 minute drive away.
Alicante is situated in the Bay formed by the Cabo de las Huertas and the Cabo de Santa Pola, at the foothills of the Monte Benacantil. Alicante has a view over the sea and the fertile 'huerta', that surrounds the city.
Alicante's historical district is located in the area around the Calle Labradores and the Rambla de Méndez Núñez -a street that a river used to pass through. Town planning and military disasters, such as those suffered during the War of the Spanish Succession, have destroyed the historical architecture of the Medina Laquant. The 19th century was an important time for Alicante as in 1821 the medieval walls were pulled down and the city spread to the east and the north. In 1833 Alicante became the capital of the province; in 1851 it was the first coastal city to be linked to Madrid by train, becoming the national capital's main seaport.
Since 1957 more than six and a half million small red, black and cream tiles on the Esplanade have formed one of the most enduring images of Alicante. The esplanade runs parallel to the seafront and is a favourite place to stroll when visiting the city, to eat ice cream, and to listen to concerts performed by the Municipal Band. The Playa del Postiguet is located at one end of the Esplanade, the Canalejas Park with its Fish Market - now converted into the best exhibition hall in Alicante - on the other.
An interesting walk can be taken through the streets of the old centre and the Plazas del Carmen and Quijano, climbing up to the Castle of Santa Bárbara -a magnificent vantage point to view the entire city. Descending by the calles Toledo and San Roque you reach Plaza de Santa María where there is a Museum of Art - the Museum of the Asegurada- and the Church of Santa María. From the Plaza del Carmen take the calle de San Rafael and climb up to the Santa Cruz district, a vividly colourful area with geraniums in pots. At night this area full of bars and cafés becomes the centre of Alicante's nightlife.
Alicante is an important service centre for the province. Alicante's commercial centre is shifting eastwards, though the more traditional shops still remain in the calles Mayor, Castaños, Gerona and San Francisco. The avenidas Maisonnave, Federico de Soto, Doctor Gadea and the calle de los Reyes Católicos are the 'rive droite' of the capital.
The residential property is located in El Raso, one of the most beautiful suburbs at just two kilometres distance from the wonderful beaches of Guardamar del Segura.
Overlooking the natural lakes of La Mata and only five minutes drive to the town, El Raso is ideally positioned for your dream home.
There you can find all the amenities in an established commercial area, which has bars, restaurants, supermarkets, banks, hairdressers, beauty parlour, bodega, veterinary clinic, bus service and a catchment zone for schools.
