With stunning views of the La Marquesa Golf Course, the 2 bedroom 1 bathroom property is in excellent condition. Close to the bars and restaruants of La Marquesa, it is also a mere 8 minute drive from the centre of Ciudad Quesada. An open plan living/dining and kitchen area leads to two double bedrooms and a family sized bathroom. There is access to a terrace from the living room and on the roof is a large solarium, with an exceptionally large storage area, from which the views are spectacular. This is a good solid property, probably more geared towards those seeking a holiday home or rental property. This property DOES have a tourist licence.
With a population of around thirteen thousand, Ciudad Quesada is situated in the Southeastern part of the Valencian region within the province of Alicante. Founded as an urbanisation in the 1970s by local entrepreneur Justo Quesada, Ciudad Quesada is now one of the most vibrant and well-known towns in the South of the Alicante province.
Over the last fifty or so years, it has proven popular with both tourists and ex-patriots resulting in what is today, a thriving multi-cultural community. A large part of Ciudad Quesada’s success is down to its location; it’s forty minutes by car from Alicante city centre, thirty from El Altet airport, about an hour from Murcia’s new Corvera airport and is serviced by the Mediterranean Motorway, the AP-7, which stretches the length of Spain’s Mediterranean coast. The regional capital, Valencia, is approximately two and a half hours away by car, whilst Murcia city centre is somewhat closer and can be reached in about forty-five to fifty minutes.
As one may expect, Ciudad Quesada is something of a cultural melting pot in almost every aspect of its existence. Local business is no exception; the British, Irish, Dutch, Belgian, German and Scandinavian populations are represented in many of the local businesses such as restaurants, bars, hair and beauty salons, gyms, estate agencies, legal firms, furniture stores, builders, electricians, butchers, bakers and yes, probably candlestick makers!
Over the past few years, Ciudad Quesada and the surrounding towns have seen massive investment in their infrastructure. As recently as summer 2020, an extensive project to re-modernise Avenida de las Naciones (effectively Ciudad Quesada’s “High Street”) was completed making the area even more accessible to tourists and locals alike as well as improving things for local businesses. Other very recent projects have included the construction of large supermarkets, new shopping centres, the development and expansion of local park areas, large scale road resurfacing and the construction of numerous cycle paths.
