A great little studio apartment in the Los Pinos development, Mirador de San Miguel. This is a peaceful setting and only a 2km walk into the town centre of San Miguel de Salinas, and a short drive to beaches, golf and shopping centres! Ideal for those looking for an affordable place in the sun!
This lovely apartment is on the ground floor for easy access, in a 2-storey building, with the main entrance being located on the east side of the property which is ideal for enjoying the morning sun (there is plenty of space to sit outside on this side of the property). The main entrance leads directly into the lounge-dining area with open-plan kitchen. There is a shower room with washing machine to the left (with a window). Being a studio-type apartment the bedroom area is separated from the lounge area by a partition wall. From the lounge there is access via patio doors to the west-facing terrace, where you can enjoy great views of the forest and mountains in the distance, and soak up the afternoon sunshine!
Located just 2.5 km (30 minutes walk or a 3 minute drive) to the church square in San Miguel de Salinas, in a very tranquil position between the Mirador de San Miguel and Ciudad de las Comunicaciones urbanizations. The Campoamor road is easily accessible and takes you on a beautiful country drive through citrus groves and past the golf courses of Las Colinas and Campoamor to the beach resort of Mil Palmeras, just 10km away (13 minutes in the car). Mil Palmeras is probably our favourite beach town and has some excellent restaurants, but then so does San Miguel, so it´s sometimes difficult to choose. The shopping and leisure centres of Orihuela Costa (La Zenia Boulevard, La Fuente, Villamartin Plaza etc) are also a very short drive away.
There is a fabulous restaurant called Pimientos located within the Los Pinos development, so only a very short walk of about 200 metres from your front door! Across the road is a duck pond and a couple of childrens playgrounds, and if you want to go for a walk in the Sierra Escalona and enjoy the miles and miles of unspoilt beauty that this nature reserve has to offer, then you can do that too without having to get in your car.
This fantastic home is offered for sale by Villas Fox, having been appointed directly by the current owners. We have by far the best selection of properties in the San Miguel de Salinas area.

San Miguel de Salinas
San Miguel de Salinas is a very popular Spanish town just 15 minutes drive from the beaches of Mil Palmeras, Campoamor, Cabo Roig, La Zenia, Torrevieja, La Mata, Guardamar etc and surrounded by beautiful countryside which includes citrus and almond groves and the national park of Sierra Escalona right on our doorstep. You can walk and cycle for miles along the canal which runs right next to the town.
There are a great variety of bars and restaurants, both Spanish and international (almost 30 in the town centre alone, which means the annual tapas run event is very popular!!). If you are looking for a holiday destination or a place to live all year round, San Miguel is a great choice as it has all amenities (primary and secondary schools with excellent reputations, banks, health centre which never closes, 3 pharmacies, large outdoor swimming pool, football and athletics stadium, 5-a-side football pitch, tennis courts, padel courts, basketball courts, petanca, crown green bowls etc) and a healthy mix of Spanish and foreign neighbours.
The pace of life is gentle and relaxing, and prices in the bars tend to be more reasonable than the coast (a glass of good red wine from the barrel will set you back just 50 centimos in some of the bars). The weekly Wednesday street market is a great opportunity to stock up on locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, hams, cheeses, olives, clothes and shoes etc, before having a drink and tapas in one of our friendly tavernas!
There is a good local taxi service and buses run several times daily to Torrevieja, Orihuela and Murcia. Alicante and Murcia airport are both approx 40 mins drive away. The local internet company provides reliable, high-speed (fibre-optic) internet connections. San Miguel is a place where you can enjoy a taste of traditional Spanish life and culture, without foregoing the benefits of top-class facilities and amenities. It is a very friendly place too, which we think you will love!
