San Miguel de Salinas is a small Spanish town inland, close to Villamartin that has about 50 per cent Spanish inhabitants and 50 percent expats, mainly British.
There is a reason why we opened our first Spanish homes online office here. It is beautiful and many of our staff have already relocated here.
The approach roads are very picturesque with many lemon and almond groves to be seen. There is a bypass road that keeps the heavy delivery trucks off the main town area, meaning peace for those expats who have relocated here. San Miguel is a quaint small town with narrow streets and a nice mix of Spanish and English bars and restaurants. Located 15 minutes from the golden beaches of Campoamor, it is more typically Spanish than other locations in the area such as La Zenia, Villamartin, Playa Flamenca and Campoamor. It is 50 minutes from Alicante Airport and about 15 minutes from Ryanair's San Javier (Murcia) Airport. Vistabella Golf Course is only 5 minutes away and the world class Las Ramblas, Villamartin and Las Colinas golf courses are about 15 minutes away.
The town boasts a medical centre, banks, pharmacies, schools including two international schools that provide access to GCSE and A Level examinations, and plenty of bars and restaurants. There is a superb butcher shop (carniceria) beside the post office (Correos) with choice cuts of different meats and poultry and a variety of sauces and select wines available as well. A well-kept secret but a must try is the tapas bar Meson de Paco. This amazing restaurant has a vast choice of Spanish food, is very clean and decorated in a lovely Spanish style. The owners are very friendly and the service is fantastic. Prices are very reasonable and you can have an excellent meal out for two for less than 20 euros.
The local church is on the main road through the town and has a lovely plaza in front where the town celebrates its many fiestas including the festival of San Miguel which is held in September.
Market day in San Miguel de Salinas is Wednesday and here the locals mingle with the tourists trying to get the best bargains and there is plenty of laughter heard on the streets.
We sell many new developments here and its popularity is increasing, due to the super value of new builds on offer.
