Things to Do in Villamartin
Boasting Blue Flag awards and golden sandy beaches which draw you down to the clear blue Med, you’ll also find each well served by ‘chiringuitos’ (traditional Spanish beach bars) providing cold beers, fresh fish and a selection of delicious local tapas to savor whilst enjoying the average 19o temperatures and 320+ days of Costa Blanca sunshine.
An abundance of quality leisure and entertainment facilities combined with the proximity to those beautiful Blue Flag beaches makes Villamartin one of the best known and most popular of the Costa Blanca resorts. The 18-hole championship golf course, from which the area gets its name, was designed by the American Bob Putman and inaugurated in 1972 and has since been graced by some of golfing’s greatest names including the late, great Sev Ballesteros, Sam Torrence, Ian Woosnam and Jose Maria Olazabal – winner of the Mediterranean Open which was held here in 1994.
The opening of the course was followed closely by the now infamous Villamartin Plaza in 1975. Refurbished and modernised in 2001, Villamartin Plaza is home to some of the regions finest bars and eateries ranging from traditional Spanish fare through an eclectic blend of European gastronomy to suit any and every taste.

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!

I cannot recommend Homes Overseas enough! Matt worked tirelessly to find us our ideal property in Spain and it took a while as I am quite fussy!! We now have a fantastic holiday home to enjoy. Matt organised everything to do with the legal side of the purchase and has some great contacts to get things done! He made us feel at ease throughout the whole process and kept us informed all the way through. It was so easy with Matt’s help, of course!

I first approached ‘Homes Overseas’ in mid 2017 enquiring about a house Villamartin. I had a very informative conversation with Jane who explained the process of buying in Spain and how they worked as a company.
I decided at the time that we would wait until after Christmas to look again so we could raise some more funds, but things changed and after speaking with Jane again, booked a trip in mid November.
I was met at the airport by Matt who then took me to my hotel ready for the next day.
Matt picked me up in the morning and gave me a very comprehensive tour of the coast from los alcazares up to Punta Prima, showing me lots of lovely towns I never knew existed, this lasted the whole day. I can’t stress enough how much this helped in making my decision the following day, the places I thought I wanted to be turned out to be totally wrong.
