Previously a local fishing village, Calpe has transformed into a tourist hotspot without losing its olden day charm. It is a destination that is equally as awesome for families and honeymooning couples and retirees – there’s simply something for everyone.
Here are a few reasons why apartments in Calpe make for the perfect holiday retreat:
The incredible beaches and views
Any town situated along the Mediterranean Sea is likely to have beautiful beaches, but Calpe boasts 14 of these stunning locations. And they’re all within a few miles of each other! The two most popular beaches – Playa Levante and Playa Del Arenal – are close to the city center and are perfect for suntanning, swimming and family fun.
Most apartments in Calpe offer incredible views of the beaches and, of course, the iconic Penon de Ifach, the great rock for which Calpe is most famous. Calpe has a great combination of stunning landscapes, incredible beaches and picturesque views that make a holiday here an absolute delight.
Accessibility, proximity, and infrastructure
The great thing about staying in an apartment in Calpe is that the flight from the UK is a mere two hour trip to Alicante. Then, you can arrive in Calpe in just under an hour’s drive, with picturesque scenes and landscapes to take in along the way. This means that you don’t have to put your family through a long and gruelling travel experience, like you would for many other exotic destinations. You can also look forward to a holiday with no jet lag.
The infrastructure in Calpe is also well-developed, with modern and updated roads and telecommunications. There are also a number of medical clinics and high-quality medical care available in town; in the case that there is some sort of an illness or accident, you would know that you and your family will be cared for by experts.
Culture and cuisine
Renting apartments in Calpe also allows you to take part in all the best Spanish traditions – fiestas, siestas, and the incredible cuisine are just some of the cultural highlights that draw people in from all over the world. Spain is famous for its paellas, tapas and tons of different dishes that are just waiting to be explored by you and your family. Spanish wine is also one of the most highly sought after wines, and pairs well with many delicious Spanish dishes.
For those looking for a little more flare – there are festivals in Calpe year-round. The Three Kings Festival and Oktoberfest are just two of the cool fiestas that will have all members of the family dancing, singing and enjoying new and unique cultural experiences.
Many people come to Calpe simply for the beach, tanning and relaxing, but renting apartments in Calpe doesn’t mean that you have to have a laid back holiday. There are dozens of activities available for visitors and they are enough to keep even the most outdoorsy soul happy.
Scuba diving, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, windsurfing, horse riding, cycling, and boating are just some of the things that you can take part in. There are also yoga classes, dance classes, cooking courses and tons of other activities that will appeal to those looking for something a little less grueling. The main beaches have designated children sections as well, where sand castle building and other beach-based activities are offered to keep your little ones distracted, busy and, most importantly, safe.
Of course, when going on a holiday alone, or with family, you always have to be aware of how much it is going to cost. Flights are the first expense; luckily with Alicante just a two-hour flight away, your flight cost isn’t going to break the bank. The cost of living in Spain is also lower than in the UK, so that means less spent on groceries and other daily expenses.
Apartments, villas, and houses are available for rent at a reasonable price in Calpe. Even better, real estate prices are much lower in Spain than in the UK. So if you really enjoy your holiday in Spain, you can follow it up by buying your dream property in paradise.
