Apartments, townhouses and villas in Las Filipinas are all recent or new build as Las Filipinas is a new development in the already well established residential area around Villamartin. Properties in Las Filipinas are centred around the newly built commercial area which has a good selection of bars, restaurants, shops and an internet café.
There is a small supermarket, which stocks day-to-day basics, and a larger Mercadona just a 5-10 minute walk away. There is a huge Carrefour supermarket in Torrevieja with everything you could need (lots of British brands) around a 10 minute drive away. Torrevieja has excellent healthcare facilities and schools and is home to a thriving expat community.
Las Filipinas makes a good base to explore the surrounding countryside and the beaches of the Costa Blanca – a 10 minute drive takes you to Torrevieja, famous for its salt flats, one of which is a huge nature reserve. The surrounding towns and villages play host to a wide variety of indoor and outdoor markets – the Saturday market at Playa Flamenca is particularly good for freshly caught fish and an amazing array of locally grown fruit and vegetables.
Las Filipinas is also just 5 minutes’ drive from Villamartin Plaza where you will be spoilt for choice for places to eat, drink and shop. Those who come to Spain for the golf will find Las Filipinas an ideal location – it’s just 5 minutes to Villamartin, Campoamor and Las Ramblas golf courses; 15 minutes to the new golf course at La Finca and less than an hour to La Manga.
Murcia San Javier Airport is 20 minutes’ drive from Las Filipinas, and El Altet at Alicante is around 45 minutes away by car. If your ideal Spanish property has to be close to stunning Blue Flag beaches, golf and all amenities then the new development of townhouses, apartments and villas in Las Filipinas may be exactly what you are looking for.
