Lynn and I moved to Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca 11 years ago with the intention of retiring to the “sunshine” after spending all our working life in Scotland and what a wonderful decision that has turned out to be. We live in an small community a stone’s throw from the Mediterranean where we wake up to the view below most days. We are fortunate that we are on a bus route thus no car unless we are in a hurry to get to town. The nearest blue flagged beach is only a 4 minute walk away and with many restaurants, cafe’s and bars all within a very short walk life treats us very well. The “sunshine” we experience in Torrevieja about 315 + days a year is said by The World Health organisation to be one of the healthiest places in the world to stay and we can only agree. I put this site together for fun and some of the information in the Posts and Thoughts sections are worth a look. A selection of photos below showing the house and areas within a few moments walk.
