Torrevieja? Don’t want to upset anyone that might live there, but I wouldn’t have a place there if they paid me £65,000! 😀 There are so many properties for sale there, people are desperate to shift them. If if you got something for that amount of money I think you’d struggle to get anyone to stay there, it would be extremely basic for that sort of money.
I’m afraid I rather agree. Torrevieja is pretty undesirable IMHO, it probably has nice areas, but I’ve not seen them in my few visits to “Torre”. You’d probably be better off buying a flat in Alicante (city), or Gran Alacant.
