Our home

This penthouse apartment is located on Calpe's golden Playa Levante beach in the shadow of the Penon de Ifach, on the top (eighth) floor of a beachside apartment block. The block is located in a prime position at the centre of the beach. The apartment has two balconies and an extremely large terrace, a portion of which is covered to provide a comfortable shaded seating area. An external building with concertina glass doors on the terrace contains a dining area.
The apartment itself consists of a comfortable, airy lounge with large glass sliding doors leading to a balcony and the terrace, a kitchen, a twin bedroom, the main double bedroom with an ensuite shower room / toilet, and the main bathroom. The floor area referred to is an estimate and includes the terrace.
A very efficient air conditioning / heating unit operates in the lounge. For the remainder of the apartment, standalone heaters are available if needed in the Winter.
The entire block has a Wifi broadband internet service - not good enough for downloading films and TV programs, but sufficient for normal day-to-day internet usage, internet radio and e-mails, etc.There is a satellite dish which augments the local cable service, but UK programs are limited to BBC News and Sky News and S4C.
The apartment's own allocated garage is located underground with elevators from the ground floor up to the apartment.
The apartment complex has its own private pool area in front of the beach, with three well-maintained pools. The communal areas are kept in tiptop condition by an efficient team of maintenance/cleaning staff.
The apartment is ideal for those who enjoy a beach holiday - Playa Levante is a wonderful golden Costa Blanca beach. Although busy at the height of the season from mid-July to end-August, the central section where the block is located is less busy than both ends of the beach.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Calpe is located halfway between Valencia and Alicante and throughout the year contains a cosmopolitan mixture of Europeans from various countries and Spaniards - both locals and a large number of Madrilenos (Madrid residents with holiday homes there). The small town retains a Spanish feel - less dominated by expats or foreign holidaymakers than certain other Costa Blanca resorts. The main town beach and the Playa Levante are both excellent. It is famous for a large rock - the Penon di Ifach - which towers over a pretty harbour and the two main beaches.
Hiking and cycling in the mountains close to Calpe is possible for the more energetic, local festivals abound and locations such as Guadal'est are interesting destinations to visit on less sunny days. A large range of restaurants exists, at least 50 within close walking distance of the apartment.
The centre of Calpe is about 20 minutes walk away, and includes an interesting "old town" area.
