Our home

We have been living in Spain for 10 years; seven years ago we moved to Ciudad Quesada and completely renovated the house which is approximately 35 years old and is now our family home. It is in a south facing position; has two double bedrooms with a third used as an office but can be quickly converted to accommodate two single beds, three bathrooms, lounge, kitchen, conservatory and an internal Andalusian garden room. Floor area 150 m2. The swimming pool is 8x4 and receives sunshine all day; there are outside eating facilities, BBQ and shower, the pool and pool area are suitably lit for evening dining. The property is surrounded by traditional white and terracotta color walls with an electric gate for off street parking and one pedestrian gate with a lock. All windows and doors have wrought iron security grills. Set in the established part of this area of Spain (Rojales, Alicante province, Valencia region) it counts many nationalities among our neighbors including Dutch, Swiss, Spanish, French and English.
No smoking, AC. We have successfully completed five house swaps to date and look forward to many more to come. Number of travelers 2.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Set in the quiet but lively area of Ciudad Quesada between Alicante and Murcia, close to white sandy beaches. The house is within walking distance of the village of Quesada where there are a number of family bars and restaurants. There is a local grocery shop and Carrefour and other supermarkets (LIDL, Consum and Mercadona)are within 10 minutes by car. Our home is close to the towns of Rojales and Guardamar, La Mata, and the main town of Torrevieja, all of which are reached within 15-20 mins drive. The city of Alicante with the castle, airport and main train station (which serves all routes to other major Spanish cities: Valencia, Madrid, Barcelona) is only 45 minutes by car from the house. High speed trains (departing from Alicante) can get you for example to Valencia and Madrid within 2 - 3 hours.
Elche & Santa pola are 25 mins drive. The historic city of Murcia with its old town and Cathedral is also recommended. There are the famous Salt and Mineral lakes close by, and lovely towns and villages, mountains with caves, countryside, spa baths, markets, churches, and historical places of interest, etc. Cuisine from all nationalities can be found locally. Golfing, horse riding, go-carts, scuba diving, fishing, golf, bird watching on lakes, all close by.
