Ciudad Quesada, Villa & Golfing Holidays<<< Go back to Ciudad Quesada holiday rentals
Ciudad Quesada, 40 minutes south of Alicante on Spain's Costa Blanca, is the perfect destination for golfing and family Spanish holidays. Quesada is
a prestige development with a good choice of restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets, hairdressers and banks, plus a 24 hour medical centre and a pharmacy.
Golfers are well served at Ciudad Quesada. In addition to Quesada's own La Marquesa Golf Club, there are also many outstanding golf courses in the area especially La Manga Club Resort. La Manga Golf Club Resort has three 18-hole championship golf courses and the most comprehensive facilities for golfers to experience a superb golfing holiday. Other golf courses include La Finca, Real Campoamor, Las Ramblas and Villamartin where the Spanish Open was held in 1994.
Ciudad Quesada has stunning south facing views over the salt lakes of Torrevieja and La Mata towards the Mediterranean Sea, and the Costa Blanca beaches - some of the best in Spain.
Ciudad Quesada rises up from the surrounding countryside - the white villas and low-rise apartments can be seen from many miles away. On one of
the highest parts of Quesada stands the Aqua Park with its many slides and swimming pools. From the top of the highest slide
you have a stunning view of the entire region - from the mountains in the background to the neighbouring towns and villages, the salt
lakes and natural park of La Mata and Torrevieja and beyond to the blue Mediterranean in the distance.
The entrance is via an impressive arched gateway. The main shops, bars and restaurants are just beyond, and this is the main meeting point for both residents and holidaymakers. Ciudad Quesada is new and modern, whilst neighbouring Rojales is very old and well worth a visit. The cave houses of Rojales are particularly interesting, carved into the side of a hill in the 19th century, and now used by local artists and craftsmen to display their work.
You can take a trip to the Parque Natural de La Mata y Torrevieja with its salt-flats and varied wildlife, with its guided walks, cycling routes and shaded picnic area. There is a small Tourist Information office on the main road at La Mata which has details of the park and the trails.

Mountains, beaches and restaurants
Inland, the mountains are clad with orange and lemon groves filling the air with their delicate aroma. Ciudad Quesada is only a
10 minutes drive through orange groves from the beautiful Costa Blanca sandy beaches of Guardamar del Segura, a typically Spanish seaside resort.
The beach at Guardamar is one of the longest and best beaches on the whole of Spain's Costa Blanca, and set against a backdrop of palm groves. Guardamar is surrounded by the Dunas - rolling sand dunes planted with eucalyptus, palms and pines. This is a wonderful place to spend the day either under the Spanish sun or under the cool shade of the pines.
Guardamar also has a good choice of restaurants specialising in local seafood, and the evening market, stretching from the main road to the beach, is a good source of souvenirs of your Spanish holiday.
There is plenty to see and explore around Ciudad Quesada in this part of the Costa Blanca, which also boasts many fine examples of Roman and Moorish architecture.
Alicante and Murcia airports are both only 30 minutes away, and within a short drive the excellent motorway provides easy connection to nearby towns and the rest of Spain. There is also a good taxi and bus service.
