I'm not one for booking hotels or package holidays any longer.
Rent a private villa for a couple of weeks and enjoy a bit of comfort.
I've stayed in Calpe twice and am returning this October.
First visit stayed at Cala Calalga next to the Galetamar Hotel. Great location within walking distance of beaches and restaurants.
Second visit the villa was a liitle bit out of the way in Monte Olta - but the views were spectacular.
It is a new and very modern four star hotel,located in the center of the city and not far from Beaches,Harbor and Ifach Rock.
What more can i say,i challenge you find a cheaper property .... £14 a night with private pool ;)
Of course that is in Feb time.In July the price doubles,but if you are in a group,it is still very cheap and great fun too.I loved going to the local supermarkets and buying and trying the local foods and wines ;)
Just look at what you can have for £14 a day.Oh that pool looks so refreshing and it was.Even in Febuary,the weather on some days was in the low 70's.I cannot wait to go and visit my property in Denia now that is about half bulit.Even at Christmas time,you can sun bathe as the weather can be in the top 60's.
Also, staying in a villa,you can share the cost of the rental.We hired this lovely villa with private pool and gardens for £300 for the villa.Split into four,thats only £100 a week.Where else would you get accomadation for £14 a night.£14 a night and you have private pool and gardens.
And another plus is you can fill the fridge up with booze and drink and food and not have to pay each time you want to drink or a snack,like at a hotel.
All in all,renting a villa if you are in a small group will save you £££££
The real quality of renting a villa is to be able just to relax and have peace and quiet.You can eat when you want and drink when you want .Our vila was set up in the hills about 3 miles from Calpe main town.Calpe is wonderful,with plenty of great shops,bars,supermarkets and restuarants to goto.
The beach at Calpe is beautiful and Calpe rock is a must see too.The choice of properties around this area is vast and there are a few hotels,but mostly villas here.Thats why i like the area,not built up too much and not over developed and spoilt.
North costa blanca is called The Orange Blossom coast.This is because there are fields of orange groves everywhere.These oranges were being grown in my villa garden.Calpe has a micro-climate and is lovely and warm all year round.
The nice things about renting a villa is that you get privacy,your own garden and pool and can get up and get home when you want.It is fantastic having your own swimming pool and i always take inflatables with me.
I went to Calpe in Febuary and rented a villa.North costa blanca is 90% white wahed villas set in the hills.We hired this villa privately and it had two bedrooms,one bathroom,nice kitchen diner and a huge garden with a pool overlooking mountains.
The garden here was wonderful,full of orange trees and palms and the views were breath taking.
