Calpe

At the heart of the Costa Blanca, within the region of Valencia lies the ancient fishing village of Calpe. Now transformed into a tourist magnet, the town sits in an ideal location, easily accessed by the A7 motorway and the N332 that runs from Valencia to Alicante; its approximately one hour drive from the airport at Alicante.

Calpe has a wonderful mixture of old Valencian culture and modern tourist facilities. It is a great base from which to explore the local area or enjoy the many local beaches. Calpe alone has three of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the coast.


History
Calpe is a town rich in history and culture and its strategic position on the coast has attracted many voyagers and settlers throughout history. Remains of Iberian tribes have been found around the town. Later, the Romans founded Calpe as a prosperous colony, whose main activity was drying and salting fish.

Christians and Moors lived peacefully for a time but were subjected to attacks by pirates during the 14th-17th centuries.

The peace of the 18th century enabled Calpe to regenerate and form the current tourist location.

The Rock of Ifach
Calpe is dominated by the towering rock of Ifach which reaches an impressive 332m, rising almost sheer above the sea and is a nature reserve. The summit of the rock is reached after a tough climb up a footpath, by means of a short tunnel through the upper part of the rock. Be warned the path above the tunnel has almost no safety features and is not recommended for anybody with a fear of heights, the very young, or the remotely unfit.

It is a genuinely tough and dangerous climb. From the top, magnificent panoramic views can be had. On a clear day, the island of Ibiza is visible.



Sightseeing & Culture
When it comes to sightseeing, the ancient town centre, next to the Moorish quarter is a good place to start. The old town walls and the church known as Iglesia Vieja are well worth visiting. This church is the only remaining example of Mudejar-Gothic architecture within Valencia.

Alongside the modern Paseo Maritimo are the recently discovered remains of a Roman villa, once forming part of the Roman fish factory, known as the Banys de la Reina (Queens Bath).

Overlooking the Mascarat ravine are the ruins of the Moorish Castle of Calpe and all over the local countryside are the typical rui-rau country houses, with arched porticos for raisin drying.

The town centre is also home to the Museum of Archeology and the Fiestas Museum.

Excursions


Calpe has a wonderful modern marina that sits alongside the old fishing port; from here it is possible to take boat rides around the rock and to the nearby resort of Benidorm.

One of the best ways to enjoy the local coastline is by means of the narrow gauge railway that runs from Alicante to Denia, stopping at Calpe.

Leisure & recreation 

The port has a nautical club and facilities for yachting, windsurfing and water skiing. If its dry-land sports you want then the rock of Ifach offers climbing facilities. 



Golf
The Ifach golf course is situated in Moraira (Benissa) on a country estate. The challenging course offers magnificent views of the sea and mountains. It’s a nine holes course and although the holes are quite short, the terrain and the narrow fairways make them tricky and entertaining.

Within one hour’s drive there are a good selection of golf courses to keep the fans of this Scottish game thoroughly entertained.

Cuisine
Cuisine from the Costa Blanca combines delicacies from both land and the Mediterranean Sea. Many civilizations have lived in this area (Celts, Iberians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims), all of which have all left their mark on the gastronomy.

The diet is a typically, healthy Mediterranean one; the Costa Blanca is rich in fish, vegetables, olive-oil, rice and fruit and the ingredients which are all used to prepare delicious, healthy dishes, such as Paella Valenciana, Arroz Negro (black rice), Arroz al horno (Oven baked rice), Arroz a banda (fish and rice stew), Arroz del Señoret (Princes rice).

If you have a sweet tooth then you will enjoy the local homemade pastries and deserts that the area is famous for. Or Jijona ice-cream (Nougat), which is made with the almonds of the region.

While on the Costa Blanca you can delight the palate with the wonderful regional wine selection. It’s worth giving a special mention to the local wine ‘Jalon’, due to its quality and bouquet.

There are many international restaurants close by offering a wide choice of different cuisines from around the world.

Climate
Calpe enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the cold North winds in winter. The area averages nearly 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature easily exceeds 20 degrees.

In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate of the area as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination

Disappointed with the villa overall. Washing machine did not drain properly. Fridge broken and not working properly. Shower door wouldn't close. Beds were extremely uncomfortable, with old/well used linen. Kitchen poorly equipped. Sun loungers were very old and uncomfortable. The BBQ racks were filthy when we got there and had to clean them ourselves before we even used it. overall cleanliness was poor. Takes more than a lick of paint, new windows and a big TV to say it is beautifully decorated.

I am very sorry you are disappointed with the Villa, hopefully you still enjoyed your holiday. Let me address your review as i have just returned from the Villa myself. The fridge has been changed, as you are right it definitely needed changing. Whilst it was in good working order the shelf's for the milk bottles etc had broken beyond repair. the washing machine had a small hole in one of the tubes and has been fixed. The BBQ, It is a brand new Stone Built BBQ, the grills need to be cleaned by the guests after its use as that is when you can clean them properly, we need to give clearer instructions on how to use the BBQ, but i have also requested that this should not be missed. If the grills are not cleaned in the future by the guests there will be a cleaning charge for the same.... I think that is the fairest way. The shower, i didn't have a problem with it, and after reading your review had another look and didnt really see any problems. There are 4 single beds and a double bed in the property. I am not too sure why you say they are uncomfortable, but from a personal stand point i do not think there is anything wrong with them. The linen is standard, clean and only a year old. we have 3 sets of linen. For future reference as many of my reviews tell you i am very responsive and try to fix the problem when you are at the site.

A lovely villa for my family to stay in, the apartment down stairs is dated with no air con, but we only used the main house where the air con was much needed. The views from the balcony was beautiful as you can see into the centre of calpe and into the mountins, the only fault is that there was no lighting around the pool which would have been great as i liked a late swim.
Also theres alot of steps so wouldnt recommend to anyone with a disability.
All in all though a great spacious clean villa,with beautiful gardens, i hope to stay here again!

Reply from Neil

Thank you for your lovely comments, I am glad you had a good stay, We have been busy updating the property with no double glazing windows and doors and this winter we are going to be adding Aircon and updating the downstairs apartment and also adding a brand new stone BBQ. Looking forward to hosting your family again soon

regards
Neil

Relaxing stay in pleasant surroundings 5 of 5 The villa was comfortable with great views of Calpe from the balcony. Short drive to the beach, restaurants/bars and supermarkets. Pleased to see Aldi and Lidl! The terraces will be great for when it is a bit warmer with a BBQ area and plenty of seating along with a decent sized pool. There is sky tv and wifi which is useful and air con and heating makes for a pleasant stay any time of the year. The owner is available by phone if any information or assistance is needed. Only downfall for the less able would be the amount of steps to get to the villa. We will definitely return. Review Submitted: Mar 8, 2016 Date of Stay: Feb 2016 Source: HomeAway

Lovely villa, excellent location 5 of 5 We have been travelling out to the Costa Blanca for many years for winter-sun rock-climbing trips. The villa is very well presented internally, and is surrounded by terraced gardens, patios and pool. Great view over Calpe and the Penon. For us, it was really well situated to access both the local climbing, and easy access to the north and south via the nearby autoroute (again, easily accessible). Just about an hours drive from Alicante airport, with easy parking to the front of the property. Kitchen, Shower, Bedrooms and living accom. all clean and comfortable. We have stayed in many properties in the area, and this is the one we will come back to on our next trip. Recommended Review Submitted: Feb 10, 2016 Date of Stay: Jan 2016 Source: HomeAway

A well situated, well equipped villa 4 of 5 This is a delightful and comfortable villa situated in the Maryvilla area overlooking Calpe. The villa is clean and well equipped with satellite TV (never used it) and WiFi (reliable and good connection speed). Pool is clean and well maintained; ideal for cooling off after a hot day in the sun. New windows and blinds coupled with air conditioning in the lounge and main bedroom make even hot nights very comfortable. A rental car is essential to explore the beautiful surrounding areas and find those unique, not too crowded beaches. Try Moraira beach; stunning views and a lovely beach. Definitely try the sandwich and "take away" lunch situated behind the beach restaurant; it's excellent value. Calpe and its environs is not too touristy and dozens of places to eat, explore and simply enjoy. Will definitely return to carry on where we left off....

ery nice villa for a family holiday 5 of 5 The villa is very nice, clean and spacious. It has in fact two independent apartments well suited for two families. We were just a family with two little kids and we enjoyed so much the villa. The kids loved the swimming pool, the terrace with a Calpe bay looking is wonderful and the barbecue evenings are to remember. It is situated in a hill with some stairs (manage luggage and grocery) but the advantage is the scenery that is superb. Neil is also very helpful as he is responsive to any request and really concerned with the comfort of the guests. Thx a lot Neil for your availability and your help in making your house so welcoming for very nice holidays. I recommend this villa for a family looking for good holidays in Calpes which is really worth for holidays Review Submitted: Sep 1, 2013 Date of Stay: Aug 2013 Source: HomeAway

Karina En Luis Aug 2009

We found the villa excellent. Fantastic pool and accommodation exceeded our expectations. I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants a nice peaceful area to relax in. Our only criticism, although trivial is that we felt such a luxurious property needed an adequate stone BBQ area to match. Overall, however, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would book again. Big thanks to Jesus ( handy man) who welcomed us and was very helpful!!! Review Submitted: Aug 21, 2009 Date of Stay: Jul 2009 Source: HomeAway
