Villamartin is a large residential area located a few kilometres inland on the
Orihuela Costa. The area is made up of individual properties and urbanisations
surrounding the extremely popular Villamartin Plaza and golf course. The area
has many permanent residents, mainly from UK and Scandinavia although during the
summer months Villamartin becomes very busy with holidaymakers and golf
enthusiasts. The Villamartin Golf Club, which is situated directly opposite the
Plaza, hosted the 1994 Mediterranean Open which was won by Jose Maria Olazabal.
The lovely Villamartin Plaza is built over 3 levels and offers a range of shops,
bars, restaurants and a supermarket on it's first 2 levels with the third level
being apartments. A 10 minute drive from the area takes you to many of the
Orihuela Costas attractions, including some beautiful beaches and a choice of
challenging golf courses.
