Hello, I have been offered a long term rental property in Torrevieja and one in Lo Pagan. I know Torrevieja but, I am not as familiar with Lo Pagan. I visited and done some research but, wondered if someone that lives in Lo Pagan could provide any information that might help me to decide? Thank you ๐Ÿ˜

Hi Trisha

I guess it all depends what you want 


Torrevieja is a big bustling resort 

Lo Pagan a bit more low key 


I house hunted from Torrevieja down to Mazzaron and bought in Lo Pagan coz it suited my needs 


Itโ€™s a lovely place 


Good luck with all


Regards 


Frank

It's a little bit like comparing chalk with cheese!! We live in Spain and have an apartment in Lo Pagan. We chose it because of the Spanish community, beautiful walks, lovely bars and restuarants, proximity to Santiago de la Ribiera, and just the relaxed feel. It has bus links to Cartegena, a good taxi rank plus plus. 

It really does come down to what you want,and don't forget in the summer both areas morph into something very different!! Do you have an opportunity to visit before signing?? Wherever you choose enjoy your stay!

I think it would be sensible for me to spend some more time in each area before making a decision.

I think Kaz63 has provided sound advice. We have a place in San Pedro ,& his/her description is spot on. Torrevieja is lovely but too busy for us to be in full time. I also like the Spanish feel of San Pedro & find people there are friendly and helpful. 

Like others have said I suppose it all depends on what your personal preferences are. If you have a car it is only a short drive to either place. Overall, for year round living I think Torrevieja probably has more places that open all year round whereas San Pedro can be very quiet in winter months. Torrevieja can be packed in the high season .Members of my family spent Christmas there one year and found it difficult to find a place open on Christmas Day to have dinner in. They had to travel further afield to find something which didn't suit as they couldn't drink and drive. We love San Pedro but only go there in Spring and Autumn mainly. There plenty to see and do then.

I meant to say that family members spent Christmas in San Pedro, not Torrevieja. Sorry if I confused you.

Hi,

I don't mean to offend anyone here, but I'm not sure how to put this...

We bought a villa 20 years ago in Los Altos, Torrevieja, we use this as a holiday home and a few lets in the summer months. The problem we have is that everything is now 'British'  ie cooked breakfast, Sunday roasts, grey track suit bottoms.

So, we have now bought a townhouse in Lo Pagan which has lovely places to eat and drink and you can't tell the nationality of others by their behaviour!

Regards,

 Jim

I have a place in San Pedro, it is ideally situated close to the AP7 motorway and the walks through the nature reserve are stunning. Lo Pagan is much much quieter then Torre with less "tourists" which is why i chose it 16 years ago. Your shout., Do you want noisy or peaceful. I know whenever i go to Torre, I am glad to get back to my place. Good luck!
