Los Dolses

An Area Guide to Los Dolses

Mid-way between Villamartin and La Zenia is the beautiful area of Los Dolses in Orihuela Costa.  Centrally located, Los Dolses is ideally situated within just a few minutes of the beautiful Costa Blanca beaches, yet central to both the extensive shopping and leisure facilities of La Zenia (including the famous La Zenia Boulevard) and the buzzing atmosphere and busy entertainment hub of Villamartin.

Things to Do in Los Dolses

For the more active visitor, three of the local golf courses are all within a kilometre – Golf de Campoamor, Villamartin Golf and Las Ramblas – and offer a wonderful test for golfers of all abilities.  Six kilometres of cycle tracks connect the area with the beachfront promenade, offering a guilt free way to explore the Mediterranean coastline…and the bars along the way! Local entertainment can primarily be found in the vicinity of the two commercial centres – the self-named ‘Los Dolses’ and the ‘Rioja’ where there are plentiful cafés, bars and restaurants catering for every taste and palate.

Properties in Los Dolses

Aesthetically, the established property development in the area is more traditional in style with a Mediterranean look and feel, comprising a well-balanced mix of large detached villas, characterful townhouses and spacious apartments.  

That said, over the last few years a collection of beautiful new-build developments have sprung up in the area, adding a new vibrancy and contemporary feel, contrasting and complementing the existing residential urbanisations.  These new-build developments range from apartment complexes boasting indoor and outdoor heated pools, gymnasiums and large landscaped gardens with sports areas, modern townhouses often benefitting from large underbuilds and private solariums to exclusive detached and semi-detached villas, many of which come with private pools.  The area is home to a largely ex-pat community and often attracts a more upmarket clientele with a luxury property waiting for almost every budget.

Weather in Los Dolses

Blessed with a climate that the World Health Organisation declare to be one of the very healthiest in the world, the area is noted as having ‘as near perfect an environment as it is possible to obtain’ – high praise indeed!  Year-round sunshine and low humidity are a perfect combination and with the Costa Blanca enjoying an average annual temperature of 19o, highs of 40o+ and more than 3000 hours of sunshine over 320+ days, few other regions can compete.  Water temperatures average 25o even in the autumn meaning you can take a dip in the Med well into late October whilst daytime temperatures often still reach well into the 20’s throughout December making this the perfect spot to escape the British winter!

We used Homes Overseas to source a second income-generating investment property in Spain.

From the outset we found Matt to be extremely knowledgeable, helpful and always available to guide us through the process.

The after-sale care and attention from Matt has also been first class and we would not hesitate in using Homes Overseas again.

Thank you and see you soon!

Adam and Rachel.

We bought our dream home thanks to Matt and Jayne from Homes Overseas. Jayne was our first point of contact and was very informative and helpful from the get go.

We then met Matt when we went to Spain for the actual viewings and he was with us every step of the way, he listened to what we wanted and more importantly what we didn’t want. In the four days we were there he organised solicitors and power of attorney for everything to be organised in our absence.

When we returned home he was always at the end of the phone to answer any questions or concerns that we had . From beginning to end we can’t fault their professionalism, knowledge and understanding of a very sceptical, scary yet exciting experience.

We are so happy to recommend Homes Overseas to anyone deciding to buy a property in Spain. Matt met us on our arrival in Torrevieja Costa Blanca and spent 3 days showing us properties and much of the surrounding areas. He was fantastic to deal with and very patient as we were initially unsure of exactly what we wanted. On our final afternoon with him we found our dream apartment.

Having paid the deposit, we returned to Ireland and Matt did the rest of the work, organising the lawyer who in turn was also great and made everything so easy for us, Nie numbers, Notary, Power of Attorney and Bank accounts were all sorted while we remained at home. The entire process took six weeks and we returned to Spain at the beginning of August to pick up our keys.

We are delighted with our new home in the sun and cannot thank Matt and Homes Overseas enough.
