Lentil said:Hi Ladies,
The clinic in near to San Juan (which has some lovely hotels and beaches) and takes about 25 mins to get to from Alicante Airport.
Probably 10 minutes from the Marina and old town.
Just for the record I am an IB patient too (4th tx with them in Sep/Oct) but coincidentally we have a Spanish Farmhouse which has private accomodation with your own front door, lounge, kitchen and en suite bathroom plus full use of our swimming pool and BBQ. We are about 45 mins from the clinic/airport.
PM me if you would like details or any advice!
I have been trying to find a self catering acc near san juan but not much joy...If you hire your place out could you let me know your cost for about 10 days...are you near a town or out of the way....how much is car hire roughly?
Normally its 60 Euros per night for a week but we would do you 45 Euros per night for the aparment based on 10 nights/days. The apartment is bright and fresh and furnished with all new Ikea furnishings. We are 5 min drive to Pinoso which is the nearest town and we now have a 'Wellbeing, Health and Beauty' centre in Pinoso which offers all the usual beauty treatments but also holistic therapies including Reiki, Relaxation classes, Acupuncture and even painting and art classes! Pinoso has lots of lovely restaurants, tapas bars, doctors, chemist, supermarkets, bakers etc...You can still get a 3 course meal for 5 Euros at lunchtime here too!
We have found the best bet for hire cars is Europa Goldcar at Alicante Airport but there are loads and loads to choose from. Ebookers are a good bet to see what offers there are. We would provide you full detailed instructions on how to find us from the airport (about 45 mins) or meet you at the Airport if you preferred. If you are using IB they have a satellite clinic which is 25 mins from us and thats where we go for bloods, scans etc...in fact everything except the EC and ET which we go to Alicante for so to save you a trip to Alicante why not ask if you can do the same at their clinic in Elche. Dr Llacer speaks v good English.
Let me know if you are interested and would like pics or anything else.
