By car

The car is quite expensive and time-consuming form of travel. Nevertheless, for a long stay , it is profitable , especially when we are going to a lot of places to visit .

Given that leave from the central Polish we have to drive a distance of about 3000 km . We propose to travel two days with an overnight eg near Lyon, France . Accommodation can easily find on the internet by typing in the search ” B “, or “hotel” and the name of the city where you want to stay .

To fuel costs , hotel costs do not include travel on toll highways , which would cost about 120 Euro one way.

Filling up in France, we know that most gas stations along highways works on the principle of prepaid – must be purchased fuel card and only refuel , which is not necessarily good for people who are just passing through . If you want to avoid refueling at the station and we must remember to always refuel while on our way there will be stations where we charge only after refueling the vehicle, as it is in Poland. Well, to navigation , upload a previously all type of Shell branded stations , BP – then avoid problems on the road.

By plane

The quickest and cheapest form of reaching the place is of course the plane.

The apartment is situated about 50 km from Alicante airport. From the airport you can get in three ways: buying a transfer ( transport by car) for 40 euro, taxi (about 90 euro) , or rent a car.

To sum up, there are more benefits of flight and car hire, we checked several rental offices and would definitely recommend just one. There are a lot of rental offices but many of them have exorbitant prices . Another issue is the fact that most rental has offices at the terminal , to those most typically you have to wait in a long queue , so I recommend rental drivalia which is located a few kilometers from the airport and provide transfer by mini bus.  Renting a small car type Peugeot 207 in total costs per week along with insurance about 70-100 euro + 60 euro for a full tank.

Daily expenses

If you want to be familiar with a few remarks regarding the expenditure is below I will try to convey their experiences .

While staying in our apartment costs associated with food can be very cheap or very varied , in general, Spain is not the way . Stores that I visited this Mercadona , Lidl, Consum , Alcampo or our Auchan . Prices in them are quite similar to Polish , have a lot of promotion for local products . In fact, shopping for basic products like pay comparable bill in the country , and definitely cheaper and it repeatedly exquisite wines that you can buy from 2 Euro and branded beer in liter bottles that cost about 1.20 euro. There are many local products that are worth a try, you can also take advantage of the offers weekly markets where cheaper to buy vegetables and fruit and local wine and honey .

In restaurants, the prices are also comparable with ours, being here worth looking for the right place. Lots of good pubs where you can eat and not too expensive to drink cold beer for 2 euro is in Villamartin Plaza where you can go on foot , walk should not take longer than 15 minutes. For lovers of local Spanish cuisine Patio Andaluz recommend the restaurant located in Torrevieja at Mc Donald Street escorpiones . A good lunch will cost 12 euro per person.

With interesting places where you can spend time with a meal I highly recommend Murde la Pasta located 3km away from our bungalow in La Zenia Bulvar on the first floor . I highly recommend to families with children from 4-12 years old . Input costs 8 euro per adult and 5 per child , this is a one-time fee and then it’s all included in the price is: Big closed simian grove for the kids … it looks like it takes up space , toddler whizzes have fun while we eat , we eat, we drink some good wine white red , sangria , beer, cup of coffee , etc., etc. selection of each suit . Time is limited in that it closes at 17 and so long you can sit regardless of where we go … in my opinion, worth it!

Other interesting because of the good food without restrictions are oriental restaurants called WOK is a lot of them on the coast . Price for entry is dependent on location and time because lunch is cheaper and childbearing from 6 to 12 Euro is the full payment for the food without moderation … There you can taste the delicious duck, a variety of fish dishes and sushi. Many are also vegetarian dishes . Only have to look at the price of drinks that are overpriced.

You can also visit Mc Donald’s where prices are usually more European piece of meat + fries + drink is 10 Euro . Many bars seaside offers a variety of interesting offers snacks, a lot of the restaurants and bars offering cuisine from around the world as the Brazilian , Italian, German, Irish , etc.

The entire coast of the Costa Blanca in particular areas of Torrevieja and Villamartin and Lomas del Golf inhabit people from all over Europe due to specific climate you live here just longer 🙂

It is worth coming here almost all year round sunshine , in October, about 30C at times a lot of people lying on the beach. In the summer it is hot , but it is bearable and great to use the pool in the evening to spend time on the terraces by candlelight. We cordially invite you to the area , our bungalow will provide you comfortable in a decent and competitive price. Have a good holiday ! !
