Vistabella is a country location situated about 5 minutes outside San Miguel towards Los Montisinos, just inland form Torrevieja city.
It has an eleven hole golf course which has been designed to accommodate the beginner as well as the more experienced golfer, and the urbanisation is designed to make the most of country living with luxury villas and bungalows making up the main bulk of accommodation. It is in an unspoilt and non commercialised area with Torremendo Lake quite close by with the many activities it offers including quad biking, hiking and many water sports. The club house at Vistabella Golf offers a select menu for all residents and the bars and restaurants of Torrevieja, Los Montisinos and San Miguel are close by.
Ok, we can’t just leave it like that… I did say 11 holes of golf make up Vista Bella resort. There was planning issue as the golf course was located on two different town hall regions. They both gave permission but one of the town halls later pulled this permission, looking for bigger cut of the profits form the new developments on the course. You know what happened, the property came along with the credit crisis and the rest of the course was never finished.
I’ve played it and the last 7 holes are basically new tee positions on the first seven holes. Its still fun to play, just be ready to duck!
The property here is mostly new builds although we have some resale property too. Its good value as the golf course situation dramatically dropped the prices 8 or 9 years ago- still Vista Bella is well worth a look.
