What is best airport to fly into?
We have 3 airports within driving distance to Casas Almorós, Alicante (40 minutes), Murcia (60 minutes) and Valencia which is further away at 2 hours but is still an option. All of these are served by direct flights from most UK and many European airports by many low cost operators. We recommend using www.Skyscanner.net to find the flights that suit you best in terms of flight times and cost.
Do I need to hire a car?
Yes. A car is essential during your stay. We are a 5minute drive to the nearest supermarket, bars & restaurants.
Can you recommend a car rental company?
One important piece of advice we would give is to book early to get the best prices and to ensure availability. We recommend EDI Rent A Car.

We recommend EDI Rent A Car. Whilst we haven’t used them directly ourselves, many of our guests have used them and they have always offered great service and a price with no hidden extras, unlike some of the more mainstream rental agents. Their prices include:-
-Free of charge baby seats 9-18kgs & booster seats 18-36kgs
-24 hour meet & greet airport services so no queues at the airport rental offices
-Fully comprehensive insurance
-No fuel charges (all cars are to be returned with the same amount of fuel as on collection. If cost to refill is over 4€ the client will be charged by credit card)
If you are interested, please contact them directly at www.edirentacar.com.
Alternatively take a look at https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/cheap-car-hire/. This website suggests the best places to look for good deals, as well as pointing out some of the potential pitfalls to watch out for e.g. be clear on the fuel policy.
Can we stay for 10 nights?
We only do full week, Saturday to Saturday stays, especially during the busy summer season. In quieter periods, if we have availability, a longer stay might be possible so please do ask, we might be able to help.
Alternatively, to get cheaper or better timed flights, you might want to consider a stay in Alicante or at the beach. Lots of guests tag on a few nights at the start or end of their stay. Do contact us for recommendations

Can you tell me more about La Romana?
La Romana is a small, friendly and traditional Spanish town with few of the locals speaking any English. Everyone knows everyone and it is very reminiscent of UK village communities 40 -50 years ago. Wine, olives, almonds, shoe making and marble are the main sources of employment and income for the town.
There are 3 supermarkets for you to stock up on your bits and pieces, 2 pharmacies should you need any medications whilst staying with us and quite a few bars and restaurants considering the small size of the village.
Read more about La Romana
The small local market is held on a Saturday morning between 9-2pm. Here you can buy fruit, veg, meat, fish, cheeses and other food stuffs, housewares, clothes, shoes and some tourist souvenirs. An even smaller market selling just fruit and veg is held in the indoor market on Wednesday mornings from 9-2pm.
We are lucky to have 3 parks for the kids too. The one in the centre of town is definitely better for smaller kids although medium ones can have fun there too. The park at the top of town is for bigger ones and there is also a zip wire and lots of lovely shade too to get out of the heat. The 3rd park at the far end of town is smaller but still fun. Ask us for directions if you are planning to visit.
If you haven’t already experienced a truly authentic Spanish fiesta then come and experience one in La Romana. It takes place in the 3rd week of August and is put on by the locals, for the locals. Whilst Spain has been in the depths of recession for many years now, the one thing that is never compromised on is the fiesta budget! It is an opportunity for the locals to let their hair down and everyone can join in too. There are parades, live music, dancing, water fights, activities for the kids and of course lots of eating and drinking. It really shouldn’t be missed.
