Vacation rentals in Torrevieja
In the Spanish city of Torrevieja, the heart of cultural life beats on the Costa Blanca, which also affects the variety of holiday accommodations in all price ranges. Particularly in the centre of the city, the offer ranges from cosy apartments in the narrow lanes to modern holiday apartments and generously designed holiday homes. You will live particularly beautifully on the coastline, where you can enjoy either the view of the bays to the east or the picturesque harbour with its numerous white sailing yachts.Living in the quiet hinterland
If you need a little more space and would like to move into an area away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, then a vacation rental in the hinterland is just the thing for you. Especially on the shore of the Laguna Salada de la Mata and the Laguna Salada de Torrevieja there are numerous well-equipped vacation rentals in the shade of palm, orange and olive trees, which have a sun terrace with a view of the lakes and their own pool. If you like it a little more urban, you can go to one of the holiday villages in the south of Torrevieja.
Things to know
The mild climate on the Costa Blanca makes Torrevieja a popular destination all year round. Thanks to average maximum temperatures of up to 20 degrees Celsius and a minimum of six hours of sunshine, the city enjoys great popularity between November and March, especially among winter refugees from cool Central and Northern Europe. The best time for active holidaymakers who use their vacation rental to explore the area by mountain bike, racing bike or hiking boots is between April and October. However, beach holidaymakers are best advised to book their vacation rental for the summer months of June to September.

Travelers and Activities
The picturesque coastline, which runs through the entire city, is characterised by numerous beaches and wildly romantic bays such as "El Mojón" and "Las Zorras", whose fine sand invites you to dig and relax. Thanks to the shallow shore areas, the beaches are also ideal for the first attempts at swimming with children. The family fun on the Costa Blanca is complemented by action-packed water parks such as the Aquopolis Torrevieja Park and the Aquapark Flamingo, the children's paradise Arenapark and the Mundomar zoo, which attracts with dolphins, parrots and lemurs. A visit to Dino Park Algar with its life-size sculptures and a visit to the go-kart track are also guaranteed to give a child's eyes a glow.Torrevieja for night owls
If you want to immerse yourself in the colourful nightlife of Torrevieja, it's best to start your evening with a traditional tapas buffet to ensure a good basis, as the clubs and discotheques don't open until 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. anyway. After a short warm-up program in one of the cozy beach bars, we finally go to the dance temples on the party mile "Calle Antonio Ruiz Coves", where several dozen shops for different musical tastes line up along a length of a few hundred meters. Especially recommendable are the OZ, the Nova, the Mojitos as well as the Love, which promises endless fun even for the most hardened night owls thanks to its long opening hours until 8 o'clock in the morning.
The name of the city is composed of the two Spanish terms "torre" and "vieja", which means "old tower". The foundations of the named watchtower can still be seen today.
