Just 300 metres from the beach, the complex is made up of various residences: 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and four bedroom duplexes. The properties enjoy gardens, larges terrace and/or a solarium.
La Azohia is a wonderful family destination, situated to the south of Alicante, and around an hour’s drive from Murcia (San Javier airport). The area boasts over 35 kilometres of long, white sandy beaches and a beautiful mountain backdrop. To the far end of La Azohia there are stunning cliff formations that shelter beautiful sandy bays, perfect for bathing in the crystal clear waters.
The town itself is a traditional fishing town dating back to the Phoenician era, overlooked by an ancient polygonal watchtower, dating back to the 16th century.
There are ample shops, bars and restaurants for tourists. La Azohia is situated close to the busier seaside resort Puerto de Mazarron, with its blue flag beaches, ample amenities, market, golf and restaurants.
Both La Azohia and Puerto de Mazarron are very quiet aside from the summer season, making them the ideal destination for that "get away from it all" style holiday during the autumn, winter and spring months.
El Pinar de San Gines is a private residential complex set in extensive landscaped gardens with a community swimming pool and off-street parking.
There are two and three bedroom apartments with gardens and terrace, or a solarium, and four bedroom duplex apartments with large terraces. All the properties are fully equipped and furnished to the highest standards.
