Spain / San Juan Beach-alicante
Nice Family Home Close To The Beach
Our home is a lovely apartment close to the beach (five minutes' walk) in one of the best neighbourhoods in Alicante.
We live in an enclosed residential complex with a large swimming pool, and next to it a small one for little children.
There is a tennis court, a football field and two squash courts.
There is a garden around the swimming pool, and a children's play area.
Our home has a big living room (33 m2) with a chaise lounge , 2 armchairs and a 42" plasma TV.
The computer connected to the TV offers you the possibility of playing Wii games and watching online programs.
There are three bedrooms: one bedroom with two single beds (whereof one pulls out from under the other), another double room with a queen size bed and an en-suite shower room, and a third bedroom with a single bed.
There is a separate bathroom with a bathtub.
We have a roof terrace (15 m2) that is used as a play room, with lots of toys, costumes and even a football.
There is a small library room with lots of books for children (most of them are in English, and some are in Spanish). This is our children's room where they do their homework and relax reading peacefully.
Our kitchen is fully equipped, with a fridge-freezer and an extra freezer, a washing machine, a dryer, a dishwasher, a Thermomix, a coffe machine , an oven and an induction hob.
We have a variety of toys, racquets, balls, LEGO sets and kites that your children will enjoy at the beach or at home.
We have two children's bikes (for a six year old and an eight year old) that you will find in the play room.
We can offer you a high-chair, other baby/toddler equipment, a travel cot and a pram (a Maclaren pushchair).
We are only two hours from Madrid, one and a half hour from Valencia and four hours from Barcelona (by train), and you can get to picturesque villages (Altea, Calpe, Guadalest, Santa Pola, etc) and touristy towns (Benidorm, Elche, Torrevieja, etc) in less than thirty to forty-five minutes.
Our manual car (Citroen C4 Gran Picasso) can also be included in the exchange.
Alicante is a big and very touristy city on the east coast of Spain, with almost 335,000 inhabitants. It has lots of places to visit, like beaches (Postiguet, San Juan, Almadraba, Albufereta, Muchavista), the castle of Santa Barbara, the harbour and "La Explanada", and beautiful parks (El Palmeral, Lo Morant, La Marjal, etc).
Our lovely home is located in one of the best neighbourhoods of Alicante, San Juan Beach.
In our block there are bakeries, supermarket, delis, restaurants and tapas bars, so you can do your daily shopping easily.
Here you can practice various sports, such as golf, racquet sports (tennis, squash, paddle) and water sports.
There are several sailing schools, so your children can learn sailing, windsurfing, kayaking etc, while you practice jet skiing or just take a sunbath.
The neighbourhood is very child friendly, with a lot of playground areas, parks, cafés and ice cream parlours.
We are very close (ten to fifteen minutes' walk) to the "Alicante Golf" golf course and to Almadraba beach (five minutes' walk).
There are good public transport connections (modenr tram and bus) to other beaches (ten minutes to San Juan Beach) as well as to the city centre (twenty minutes).
The tram stop is five minutes from our house, and the bus stop is just below our window.
Alicante Airport is half an hour's drive away. You can also get to the airport by bus in just thirty minutes from the city centre.
Benidorm is one of the most famous and touristy cities in Spain, and it takes only thirty minutes to get there by car along the coast, or an hour by train (the train station is only a 10m walk). Enjoy a day sunbathing on the stunning beaches, or having fun in the Aqualandia water park, the Terra Màtica theme park or the Terra Natura wildlife park.
Valencia is a must-see! It is the capital of the Valencian Community, and there you can visit the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, which is one of the most popular tourist destination in the whole of Spain. You can be there in less than two hours.
Gulliver Park is also a great place to visit for you and your children, with huge slides for everyone.
And if you enjoy unspoilt nature, Albufera Nature Park is ideal for you.
We are a family of four.
My husband and I are teachers.
Our children are six (a girl) and seven years old(a boy).
We love travelling and meeting new people with different interests and cultures.
We enjoy our holidays travelling across Europe, and would like to start a new episode as well, travelling to other parts of the world, like America or Asia.
We love sports and books. That is the reason we live in a residential complex, so we can practise sport or relax in the swimming pool whenever we want.
Our children have lots of toys and books both in English and in Spanish, since we are a bilingual family.
