I thought so much about what to write about on my first post and decided to tell you all about a lovely place called Torremendo which I am proud to call home.
Where is Torremendo? Torremendo is located at the south of Orihuela in the Alicante province and it is surrounded by mountains from the Sierra Escalona and a beautiful lake called Embalse de la Pedrera. Its population is under 2000 people and although is mostly spanish nationals, there is also a good mix of other nationalities and we all get on absolutely great ! The distances to the main amenities are: Torrevieja beach 20min, Alicante airport 50min, La Zenia boulevard 15min, Orihuela town 20min, Vistabella Golf course 10min just to mention a few.
Why Torremendo? What sold it to me was the warm and homely feeling from the locals and the amazing nature around it, I absolutely love walking around the lake with my dogs for miles over the weekend and it is also great if you like mountain biking and fishing. Also if you have a family is a very safe place for kids to grow up and everyone looks after each other, there is a a real supportive community spirit in the village.
What else is there? Well, we have a selection of restaurants and bars where you can have some traditional tapas and the most popular “paella valenciana” and wash it down with a few “cañas” or a nice “cortado”. There is also a butchers, a bakery, the local little shop “Ca-Vicente”, a pharmacy, a bank, health center, police station and a fantastic primary school . During the summer months the municipal pool opens its doors along with the amazing “Cantina” where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner and entertainment over the weekend at very affordable prices, definetely worth a visit.
I hope you enjoy reading my first post and stay tuned for the next one!
lots of love
