Los Montesinos is a traditional Spanish town situated fifteen minutes away by car from the city of Torrevieja on Spain’s sunny Costa Blanca coastline, in the region of Alicante, with its superb blue flag beaches and golf courses.

Los Montesinos is close to the motorway meaning that it has quick and easy access to the surrounding cities of Elche, Alicante and Murcia. This quaint town is found next to the giant salt lakes of Torrevieja, on the CV-945 just inland from Torrevieja, it is easily accessed from the AP-7 motorway, junctions 751 or 754. There are several golf courses and good beaches in the area. The closest beach is that of Guardamar which is a ten minute drive away.

The weather in Los Montesinos is a typical Mediterranean climate with a long hot summer and short cool winter, numbering a staggering almost 315 days of annual sunshine.

The nearby nature reserves and their lakes are perfect for bird watching, walking, cycling and horse riding. There is a lovely square in Los Montesinos boasting several English and Spanish bars and restaurants.  Los Montesinos also has a bowling club and a market every Friday offering everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to flowers and leather goods. The history of Los Montesinos goes back to Roman times, remains of a Roman village have been found and this links conveniently to the important ancient Roman road which runs through the village.

The Via Augusta would have been the most important road in Spain during the Roman occupation although it is somewhat uninspiring today, looking much like any other road.  Over many centuries Los Montesinos has depended mostly on agriculture for its survival, but in recent years the modern invasion of tourism and property development seems to have taken over in importance. The village is still, however surrounded by mile upon mile of orange and lemon groves. New development of properties has brought more wealth and status to Los Montesinos and has resulted in a sizeable expat community in the village. Even so the old Spanish traditions have not been lost and the old mingles nicely with the new giving Los Montesinos a warm and friendly feel.
