It is situated on the award winning Levante Beach and is only separated from the beach by the promenade (so is safe and ideal for children and disabled).

Behind the apartment is the tranquil salt lagoon, home to many birds including beautiful wild flamingos. Calpe offers 13 kilometers of coastline with 14 beaches and coves and is particularly renowned for its long Blue flag golden sandy beaches. Calpe's fishing port and marina is just 500m away. The daily catch can be seen coming to the shore and eaten in the numerous fish restaurants by the port. Guide books liken Calpe to Brittany. In total there are three marinas, the main one is Club Nauticia by the Rock. There are excellent restaurants and shopping facilities close by with a supermarket and bus stop next door. There is a free car park across the road outside the gated complex. However, on site parking is included with 5th Floor apartment.

Tennis courts and crazy golf are available at the next apartment block and the 9 hole Don Cayo Golf Club, Altea and the Ifach Golf Club are only a short drive away.
So come along and enjoy the sun, sea, sand, sangria, siestas and fiestas.

My husband and I live in Harrow on the Hill (London) and have two grown up daughters. Working in education has enabled us to enjoy long family holidays in Spain.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 1997
My disabled Aunt purchased the apartment when it was built. She fell in love with the views of the sea and the rock from the balcony. There are luscious gardens and an indoor spa pool. It is a safe and friendly place. There is a stunning promenade and a well equipped supermarket next door with a bus stop outside as well as dozens of excellent restaurants. To the rear of the property there are beautiful views of the mountains. It is just under an hour by taxi from Alicante airport. There is plenty to do for those who are more active like sailing, walking and golf which are the activities we enjoy. The surrounding towns are delightful as is the old part of Calpe and the harbour and marina. The Rock is spectacular and is enjoyed by walkers, climbers, bird lovers and flower enthusiasts.
The location is perfect. You can get a suntan on the balcony and the sunsets are amazing. The pool's fountain is lit up at night time and is quite magical so you could stay on the balcony all day and evening. We love the new indoor spa pool (which is open from October to May) and often have it to ourselves. We enjoy jogging along the beach before a healthy breakfast of delicious fresh fruit from the market. For those who like something different there is a bowling green. Calpe has plenty of colourful festivals which attract people from nearby towns. Calpe certainly has something for everyone.
We have just returned from Calpe. Mary and Tony's apartment was very comfortable, bright, and well furnished throughout. The beach is seconds away and there was a good indoor pool on-site that our 6 year old frequented at every opportunity she got.
The restaurant on site was excellent and very conveniently open on Xmas day. There is also a good supermarket on site.
The welcome pack that Mary and Tony sent us at the time of booking was excellent and provided a comprehensive list of what to do and see in Calpe and the surrounding area.
We had a great week and would recommend this property to anyone that is keen on a visit to Calpe and the surrounding area.
We would definitely consider returning.
Thank you again Mary and Tony!
Just returned from a lovely week in this apartment. The photos give a true depiction, it has a real homely feel, the view from the balcony is amazing. The balcony gets the sun all day and is a lovely place for a leisurely lunch or for just chilling with a book and glass of wine. The double bed is comfy and the shower powerful. The kitchen is well equipped for you to eat in if you so choose, the dishwasher aids with the process. There are however plenty restaurants within easy walking distance although we found that with it being November quite a few were shut. We did manage several lovely meals out.
We also climbed the rock, it was tough going but what an achievement to get to the top. There are also lots of other places to explore and discover if you are first time visitors like us.
Mary and Tony are amazing hosts, from the first point of contact, they are very friendly and knowledgable about the area. The information pack sent before departure certainly was informative allowing us to prepare for our stay.
We look forward to returning some time soon.
We have just returned from a lovely relaxing holiday in this superbly appointed and decorated apartment.There is both an indoor and outdoor Swimming pool and the beach is just across the prom.
The views from the large sunny Balcony are to die for.
As we are long stay visitors to Tony and Mary's other apartment we can't thank them enough for all their help and attention.
From the first moment of booking this property, I knew I'd made the right choice. Mary & Tony were extremely helpful and friendly from start to finish, and their communication was superb.
The apartment was every bit as good as I'd hoped it would be.....Beautifully furnished & spotlessly clean. The views from the spacious balcony are stunning, directly overlooking the sandy beach & The Ifach. We felt the location was superb with ample parking spaces and great access to public transport if you want to travel further afield. We didn't hesitate to rebook again for next year!
This is one of the best apartment that we have ever rented it was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated with extremely comfortable beds and excellent standard of furniture and fittings with everything you need and more. The views are Stunning from the lovely large sunny balcony and the pool and the surroundings were sparking clean at all times. It is extremely well located right on the beach with plenty of lovely restaurants and bars nearby.
Mary and Tony are extremely helpful and very easy to deal with.
We are hoping to return next year and would not hesitate to recommend this apartment.
We cannot rate this apartment, and the accompanying facilities, highly enough. Perfectly presented on arrival, clean, fresh, spacious and with one of the most extraordinary views one could hope for. We never tired of sitting on the large balcony, drinking in the surroundings (and drinking a glass or two of fizz). The pool (spotless) is surprisingly large and deep and provided the kids with hours/days of fun.
We shall be returning at our earliest possible convenience and will look no further than this wonderful apartment.
