Pilar de la Horadada, only 35 kilometres from Alicante airport, just off the new Alicante-Cartagena motorway, Pilar de la Horadada only became a town in its own right 16 years ago. Because of this it has been very carefully designed – with quiet residential areas interspersed with large green spaces and high-rise buildings prohibited.
Pilar is built by the River Seca which has been diverted over the centuries to irrigate the surrounding countryside, making it into a fertile Huerta where citrus and olive groves flourish, rosemary and thyme grow wild, and a huge diversity of vegetables are grown and exported worldwide. The local cuisine reflects this agricultural success – with fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as locally produced meat and fish being the staples of the region’s gastronomy.
Pilar itself has been thoughtfully developed and has all the facilities you will need for day to day living: supermarkets, a medical centre, shops, restaurants, schools (primary and secondary), a cinema, swimming pool, two police stations and a bustling Friday market.
The coast is minutes away and comprises 4 kilometres of sandy beaches stretching from Playa de las Mil Palmeras to El Mojon.
