The Costa Blanca has a Mediterranean climate that guarantees a lot of sun-drenched days and mostly pleasant temperatures. The mountains surrounding the Vega Baja region often prevent low pressure systems and cold fronts from reaching this area. This ensures that it stays warmer in the coastal region than inland during the winter period. This also reduces the chance of rainy days, because the Costa Blanca is sheltered from the bad weather. It is this type of climate that makes the Costa Blanca popular as summer holiday destination and as a place to spend the winter.
The surroundings of Casa la Vuelta
Casa La Vuelta is centrally located in the heart of the Vega Baja region, near Guardamar and between the cities of Alicante and Torrevieja. The region is known for its enormous diversity of fisheries and agricultural production. Within a 10-minute drive are the most beautiful and pearly white beaches of the Costa Blanca, and historic cities like Murcia and Alicante are only half an hour away.
Murcia has a beautiful historic center with beautiful cathedrals and many cozy squares where you enjoy excellent food. Alicante is hip and happening, from the port to the old center and the old castle ‘Santa Barbera’. The city has had a huge boost in recent years and is well worth a visit.
A visit to the nearby town of Orihuela is quite advisable, and other tourist attractions such as Benidorm and Guadalest are within an hour’s distance.
If you do not suffer from ‘sea legs’ then a visit to the island of Alicante, which is just a 20-minute boat ride from the nearby Santa Pola. Take the glass bottom boat and enjoy the clear water and the colorful fish or choose a fast water taxi and ‘dance’ at full speed over the water. Spectacular!
On the island, you can snorkel in the various bays and enjoy life underwater in the crystal clear and azure blue sea. On the island there are a large number of typical Spanish restaurants where fish and shellfish logically occupy a prominent place on the menu.
