Mil Palmeras

An Area Guide to Mil Palermas

Mil Palmeras is a beach resort situated on the eastern Mediterranean coastline of the southern Costa Blanca and forms part of the Orihuela Costa. Sitting between the resort of Dehesa de Campoamor to the north and it’s more southerly neighbour of Torre de la Horredada, Mil Palmeras (which translates as ‘One Thousand Palms’) has an exclusive feel and is renowned for it’s stunning coastline and Blue Flag accredited wide golden sandy beach.  Smaller and less busy than many of it’s neighbouring urbanisations, Mil Palmeras does still have a bustling daytime scene year-round focused on its beach where you’ll find two of the most popular ‘chiringuitos’ in the area – ‘Popeyes’ and ‘Pirates’ – offering cold beer, fresh fish, traditional tapas and live music.  At least one of these chiringuito beach bars, together with a reduced selection of other restaurants and facilities, remains open year-round and make this a great destination at any time of year.

Things to Do in Mil Palermas

Although Mil Palmeras is quieter in the off season, it really comes alive in the peak summer and holiday periods. In the summer months, jet ski’s, sailboards, pedalo’s and other watercraft can be hired from the beach and offer a fantastic way to spend a few hours out on the water.  There is also an inflatable playground for the younger children to enjoy with plenty of scheduled beach activities taking place daily, many of them cost free.

 

The main square of Pueblo Latino offers a wide selection of dining options and has a walkway leading down to the main promenade and beachfront, with the plentiful bars and restaurants to either side framing beautiful views out to sea. The square itself is the venue for the popular weekly open market where you can find everything from traditional local arts and craft to fresh local produce and even some locally sourced wines and spirits.

Weather in Mil Palermas

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!

Properties in Mil Palermas

Mil Palmeras has benefitted from a great deal of investment over the last few years and is very much considered to be one of the ‘up and coming’ areas along the coastline and is home to a number of new build developments which enjoy spectacular sea views and are no more than a few hundred meters from the beach.  Mil Palmeras offers discerning buyer the increasingly rare opportunity to purchase beachside property at still reasonable and affordable prices.

Testimonials

Michelle & Lyn

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.

From the first telephone contact to the final purchase of our properties we cannot fault Matt Austin and his team.  From the very beginning we were reassured and advised by Jane who has been our phone contact until we arrived in Spain.  Jane is very personable and efficient and put us at ease with every step.

Matt contacted us before our visit to ascertain our exact needs and then arranged property visits accordingly ( a difficult task as we thought we wanted the North Costa Blanca but actually preferred the south!!).  Because of our change of plan a day after we arrived Matt had the difficult task of completely changing all our viewings and arranging more in the South, not that we are difficult!  At no time were we aware of the work this took as Matt was always helpful, professional and friendly.  His knowledge of the areas in all aspects whether it be legal assistance, services, restaurants, shopping, leisure activities etc was extensive and he spent a great deal of time with us away from the property search to help us get to know the area and allay any fears.

We bought a new build which was perfect and we revisited with Matt several times and he even introduced us to the builder.  We have also bought a holiday rental which is also perfect for our needs. Matt continues to work on our behalf whilst we are back in England keeping the plates spinning.  Our dealings with Matt and his team have been absolutely fantastic and we would highly recommend them.  We will be friends for life and can call on him for any help we need going forward.  First class.

After booking appointments with various estate agents on mainland Spain, we were contacted by  Jane who pointed us in the right direction and said that a gentleman called Matt would contact us which he did.

We met up in Torrevieja and we spent 2 days in his company who informed us of the process and what would happen along the way, the first day he kindly took us around the different areas that we were considering. The second day he took us around the properties that he had found in our price range and gave us all of the contact numbers and information that was necessary.

We decided on a property, Matt took us to the Notary and within weeks the property was ours.

We were so impressed with the way Matt conducted the search.  Matt is very informative and we felt  this company  went above and beyond the support needed in the buying process.

We would highly recommend this company to anyone who wished to buy on mainland Spain.

A big thank you to all concerned.
