Mesón Villa Salada

Mesón Villa Salada boasts a fantastic setting on the shores of Torrevieja Salt Lake. The lake lies on the northern border of Orihuela Costa and just a short drive from many of its residential areas. Visitors enjoying a holiday in the area should not miss one of the spectacular flamenco dance & equestrian shows featured regularly at this charming restaurant.

The traditional Spanish villa is set in picturesque gardens with the lake as a backdrop. Wide breezy terraces surround the villa's superb bar and restaurant. Here visitors can relax and enjoy drinks and a meal or simply visit to take in one of the most mesmerising shows on the Levante coast.

Mesón Villa Salada Shows

The focal point at Mesón Villa Salada is the central arena and stage. Here a modern lighting and audio system sets the mood for the show to come. The villa hosts a variety of shows such as flamenco dancing accompanied by Spanish guitar or fabulous dressage shows. The highlight though is when they combine the two in a dazzling performance of colourfully dressed dancers and proud, highly trained Andalusian horses.

Guests visiting the villa are welcome to just enjoy drinks in the bar or under the stars in the lovely garden. If it's just a meal you're after, their elegant restaurant offers Mediterranean cuisine at its finest. They boast a full menu of starters, soups, salads, grilled meat and fish dishes and delicious paellas. They have a choice of desserts and their own bodega (winery).

It is also possible to visit the villa just to take in one of the shows. The majority of visitors though enjoy a full evening of entertainment with a buffet meal and show combined. The restaurant also includes a choice of kids meals, either offered separate or included with a show.

Mesón Villa Salada Equestrian Centre

Next to the villa is their own equestrian centre. Facilities include a large lunging ring, jumping arena, dressage menage and 42 horse boxes. Lessons are available for beginners and advanced riders. Vaquera (classic Spanish riding) lessons are also available. Horse owners can make use of the centre's temporary and annual livery service. For those who just fancy a hack, they offer a selection of treks around the shores of the salt lake. Shetland ponies are available for kids.

Mar Menor Mud Baths

The Mar Menor mud baths are not only therapeutic but great fun too. Mar Menor is one of the most popular places to visit within easy reach of the Orihuela Costa's residential areas.
