Formentera del Segura

Formentera del Segura

Formentera del Segura is located a slight distance inland from Guardamar (about 10-15 minutes drive), it is a town still relatively untouched by recent tourist activity, so can provide you with a more traditional stay.

The Segura River runs through the town, providing the means to irrigate the citrus groves surrounding the town. These irrigation ditches were constructed by the Moors and are still in use today. If you are looking for a quieter, more thoughtful vacation in Spain, give some thought to staying here.

Formentera del Segura was actually founded by the Moors, during their conquest of Spain. It was restored to Christian control in 1242 by King Jaime I. The town passed to the control of the Lord of Formentera in the 18th century, and thus acquired its current name. Although the village was nearly destroyed by an earthquake in 1829, it had been restored within two decades, and offers you a look at Spanish culture that may not be available in the more modern towns.

Formentera del Segura

One of the most well-known events in Formentera is "The Day of the Bicycle", which is a race participated in by many of the inhabitants to celebrate the town and the bond of the people to one another. If you decide you want to spend a day at the beach, it will be easy to visit the nearby beaches at Torrevieja (10 miles) and Guardamar (6 miles).

Property in Formentera is becoming very popular between visitors starting their "life under the sun" experience in this little and peaceful town, Property is much cheaper than in the seaside and you are only 15 minutes drive from the beautiful beaches of La Marina and Guardamar. Nevertheless, most of the properties have swimming pool so if you do not fancy driving to the beach, you can relax at home too.

As I was saying, this area is very affordable, you can buy a flat for as little as 55,000 € and you are not far from main towns like Torrevieja (9 miles). Other nearby towns are Rojales, Benijofar, Almoradi, Guardamar and Ciudad Quesada.
