A mere half hour drive from Alicante sits our apartment surrounded by mountains. 20 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from the beach and 2 seconds from the pool, this apartment is also set on a Championship golf course.
La Finca is located near the towns of Algorfa and Orihuela and is only a short journey from its sister golf courses at Villa Martin and Las Ramblas. La Finca Golf is a golfing oasis in the heart of the Spanish countryside. La Finca was opened in 2002 and is set alone in its own valley with breathtaking views. This long challenging course with its magnificent greens and water features will make you want to return again and again.
If the idea of Golf fills you with dread, there is plenty of other activities such as tennis courts and water parks. The newly opened 5* hotel Husa La Finca Hotel is located just minutes away from the apartment and boasts a top of the range spa, gym, beauty centre and restaurant. With Torrevieja on your doorstep and beautiful historical Alicante and Murcia half hour drives away, wine region Jumila, historic Orihuela or Carthegena and Elche famous for its vast amount of palm trees there is plenty to do if you so wish. Other popular options are the spa towns of Arenchea or Fortuna to soak away the day, an independant tour of the castle route or from Santa Paulo you can take a half hour boat ride to the fishermans island of Tarbca. At just under 2 miles its a beautiful place to relax and unwind.
The closest beach is just ten minutes away and there is plenty of activities if you have children such as local tennis courts, bowling alleys, horse riding, bicycle hire and water parks to name but a few. There are also many child friendly excursions available.
For the party animals there is a vibrant nightlife in Torrevieja or for the more relaxed of mind, try out one of the many unique and wonderful restaurants from the 5* club restaurant to the local eateries close by. Choice is as diverse as Hungarian to Chinese to Tapas and everything in between.
Shopping is a must, with many a bargain to be had. And when the money is spent, you can always treat yourself to a rest at the Spa town of Fortuna
The property is set in the valley overlooking the mountains of the rustic Spanish countryside. Surrounded by grape vines and lemon trees this is the perfect position for a relaxing holiday. The apartment is set next to the landscaped pool area with its own maintained garden and private courtyard, ideal for entertaining or hiding away from the world!!
The apartment is fully furnished to a high standard with a traditional exterior and clean contemporary interior. Consisting 2 bedrooms each with 2 single beds, 1 master bathroom and an en-suite and a fully fitted kitchen boasting modern appliances, including a washing machine, dishwasher etc. The Living area includes Sky television, a DVD player, a playstation and a good selection of books (childrens and adults), games, playstation games, cds and dvds and a double pull out sofa bed.

Great location, quiet nights away from city noise and lights, just what we needed to rest and relax; ideal for our family with young children; safe, clean and cozy environment. All you need is reachable within short driving or walking distance. We've received outstanding service from Emily: very responsive, reactive and ready to help beyond expectations!

Nuestra estancia en La Finca nº 217 Golf & Resort, han sido geniales, es una apartamentocómodoo y perfectamente equipado para unas vacaciones, nosotros hemos viajado con nuestros dos hijos de 3 y 5 años, así que han podido disfrutar de juegos en la urbanización (cerrada y por ello sinningúnn tipo de peligro) y de la piscina que tiene una zona adaptada para los niños.
La zona cuenta con mucha variedad y todos los servicios necesarios para necesidad.
A unos 15 minutos se encuentra la playa de Guardamar, la cual recomendamos por ser una playa limpia, muy cuidada, temperatura del agua cálida y una arena agradable.
Destacar también las excepcionales indicaciones que proporcionan los propietarios para llegar al apartamento, evitando cualquier tipo de perdida a la llegada. Francamente solo podemos decir que es un sitio encantador y que seguro repetimos. Read more
"A sure hit"
Our stay at La Finca n º 217 Golf & Resort, have been great, it's a apartament and perfectly equipped for a holiday, we have traveled with our two children aged 3 and 5 years, so I have been enjoying games section (a closed area and therefore eliminates type of hazard) and the pool that has an area suitable for children. The area has lots of variety and all the necessary services to need. About 15 minutes away is the beach of Guardamar, which we recommend to be a clean beach, very elegant, warm water temperatures and a nice sand. Also highlight the exceptional guidance provided for owners to reach the apartment, avoiding any loss upon arrival. Frankly we can only say that it is a lovely place and will surely repeat.
Great family accomodation!

Definitely recommended - great value, easy access from alicante airport and a really well-kept clean and childfriendly place. A bit far from the better beaches and car is a must, but all of the alicante region is easy to reach.

Great value for money and very relaxing

We went to stay in this apartment for a cheap and cheerful getaway. We couldn't have asked for better - the apartment was spotless and very spacious, with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Despite being in an apartment complex, it was quiet and we had the pool to ourselves on most days. It's easy to drive to restaurants nearby and the owners have provided lots of info about the locality. Quite a few good day trips in the region as well. Food wise, nearby markets were great for Mediterranean fare to cook at home. We're not golfers but I imagine if you are you'd be in heaven. All in all a great experience!

Stayed for a thoroughly enjoyable long weekend with some good friends. The apartment was comfortable and sufficiently large to easily accommodate 4 adults and all their golf equipment! The kitchen is very well fitted, the patio well furnished and the pool just outside the door. With La Finca Golf Course just around the corner and plenty of other courses in the area its a great place to stay for golfers or ideal for a relaxing break.

Although it was in the winter the sun was just right for golf.
The night time you need a coat for a little walk to the bars and restaurants. The village of algorfa has many good restaurants and in the day the square has many local bars and food stores.
The apartment over looks the pool and therfore if a family with children they will find this ideal.

My partner and I spent 2 weeks in Spain a month or so ago... We were a little nervous not being keen golfers and the apartment being on a famous golf course that there would not be much for us to do... It was quite the opposite!
Before we left the UK Emily who owns the apartment sent us a map with instructions on how to get to the apartment from the airport - this was really handy and we found La Finca with no problem at all.
With La Finca being part of a self built town we found the advantage was having the restaurants right on our doorstep. This was handy especially for the 1st night whilst we were trying to find our bearings. We got chatting to a few people on the 1st night who gave us some great recommendations for places to explore. Plus in the apartment Emily had left us a huge file full of local information not only for
The apartment was clean and fresh. It felt really homely - we spent quite a few nights having dinner at home. Going up to the local supermarket to get some bits and having tea outside in the garden with a glass of wine and a good book.
Although I don't think there are any negatives to our holiday - we did enjoy ourselves that much - I would note that you have to have a car to make the most of your stay. Also I would recommend taking the 5 minute drive to the local hypermarket for food and bits and bobs etc - the mini mart on the complex is a little bit pricey but it is well stocked should you feel like not going out to the Hypermarket.
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment - we had a brilliant 2 weeks and will be looking into staying there again.

We stayed in the apartment with a child and baby and there was all the facilities you would need. The pool is a few steps away from the apartment so perfect to nip and get anything you need. There wasn't a restaurant open within walking distance when we stayed, so we drove to the nearest small town most evenings where there were restuarants and local bars which were great. Am sure there were places about to open so by now there would be places to walk to.
A great holiday and apartment, would definately go again. Read more
Since Amanda visited 2 main restaurants have opened alongside a couple of smaller eateries and a number of pleasant bars all in 5 minutes walking distance. The golf clubhouse is also available to everyone which caters wonderful seafood.
