What makes this Apartment unique
We have holidayed in several countries, however El Rincon is well geared up for tourism and people keep coming back. Our properties are serviced by two local airports both within easy driving distance, namely Corvera (Murcia) and Alicante Airports. When we travel out and have a hire car we do travel out a bit further afield. The inland sea at La Manga is definitely worth a visit and shops in Torrevieja are good. You can even mud bathe by the salt pans at San Pedro, very popular with the locals.

Staying for a few days break we were welcomed on arrival and shown around El Rincon, the apartment modern spacious very clean and well equipped, felt at home and relaxed straight away into our break. El Rincon is gated and secure so was very happy as we had a hire car.

We would certainly recommend the apartment for a stay and we will certainly revisit again

Special interest holidays:
Close by you can horse ride, or take part in water sports, paddleboard hire, go scuba diving, visit the water park or the inland sea at La Managa (approx 25 mins by car).

Car hire is not essential and airport pick ups can be arranged, but this will only be with a licensed service provider. A hire car does open up the coast line and inland towns. The apartment is not difficult to find full directions are provided, you can consider offsetting car hire against taxis? The coast road does have a good bus service.
