About the property

Apartment in El Campello, Costa Blanca North, Spain - Peaceful Location, But Only 10 Minutes Walk To Main Beach, Esplanade With Cafes, Restaurants, Shops

25 minutes drive north of Alicante airport is the fishing village of El Campello. Our apartment is on the very outskirts of this village -just past an ancient watchtower and an archaeological dig - in an established residential area with the sea in front and villas and mountains behind. It is a secure, gated community with a large shared pool and lovely gardens full of trees and flowers looked after by our gardener Vicente. The architecture is Moorish - white walls, red tiled roofs, and the apartments are designed so that we all have views onto the gardens but do not overlook each other. The buildings are only 3 stories high and are long established; there is a cafe/restaurant outside the main gate.

About Wendy Kissack

In the seventies, as a graduate of Spanish, I came to live and work in Murcia town and then in Alicante town. I moved away in the late seventies but returned over the years to visit friends. Finally I had the opportunity to buy somewhere in this area that I love, and I scoured property with an old friend looking for somewhere that met my criteria:

1. Must have sea views

2. Must be easy to get around ( car not essential)

3. Must be near beach

4. Must be quiet ( a challenge in Spain!)

5. Must have good views from front and back

6. Must have good size swimming pool for kids and for adults

7. Must be near shops/bars/restaurants

8. Must be predominantly Spanish (not feel Brits have taken over!)

9. Must not feel cold, empty, unwelcoming

Success! - and bonus! a lovely garden.

Wendy Kissack purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Wendy Kissack chose Alicante Area

El Campello is still predominantly a holiday place for Spaniards, and also a town where people live all year round.

It used to be a small fishing village and although it has grown, the port is still a working fishing port. If you snorkel off the rocks you will see fish everywhere, look out for the green wrasse. The weather is dry, sunny and warm most of the year.

El Campello beach is sandy and long with an uninterrupted promenade. This means that cafes and restaurants and shops line the beach and provide a social area for day and evening.

You can walk or cycle all along the beach and into the next and the next - kilometres of sandy safe beaches.

A modern tram runs from Alicante town to Denia along the coast stopping at villages along the way, making it easy and economical to get around and visit other areas.

What makes this apartment unique

The complex is well established with lovely garden and pool. It is just around the bay from the main beach in a residential area which means it is quiet, but only a short walk away from all amenities that you need.

There is a small beach just in front of the apartment, should you not want to walk the 10 minutes to the main beach.

This is our home from home, so we have most things you need for the beach, for everyday shopping, for leisure, for sightseeing, or just chilling.

The design of the bungalows is classic Moorish architecture with white walls and red tiled roofs. We have filled it with artefacts from Mexico and local Spanish artists.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The apartment was perfect, we felt instantly at home here. The location was great too, we spent our time either relaxing by the pool or swimming in the sea – the beach is just a short walk from the apartment. We also enjoyed the short walk into town each evening to eat out and wander along the promenade. Thanks for letting us stay here, we are really looking forward to doing it all again this year!

"Alex and Katy loved having such easy access to the pool, and we really enjoyed spending evenings at la Playa. The apartment was lovely.

Thanks very much for letting us have the use of it. Best wishes"

Alison Bafford

"Everything was perfect! The apartment was just what I wanted and was so comfy, I didn't want to leave! El Campello itself was also brilliant, I enjoyed walks down to the beach and soaking up the sun, when it was out!"

Good location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days at the apartment, well situated in a nice quiet location. Apartment is well equipped and minutes away from the tram station. The owner was very helpful giving us tips on where to go and what to see. A car is definitely not required. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment as our friends have similar one on the same complex and wanted to visit when the Moors and Christians fiesta was on . We were very pleased with the 10 days that we spent here and found the apartment well kept , clean and comfortable . We did sneak round to our friends after a busy day to watch some British Television now and again but also watched some of the DVDs provided Wendy was easy to contact and very reliable and we hope to return before too long.

Apartment in El Capello near Alicante

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our 10 days in this apartment built on two levels which made it feel spacious. It was clean, attractive furnishings and with good facilities We were visiting friends on the same well kept and quiet complex with pool so it was very convenient (especially as they had a car !)

We even managed to catch up on some UK TV programs now and again at our friends which we appreciated after a long day out ! .This particular facility wasn't available on the TV where we were staying which we would have liked but there were books and DVDs to watch along with other programs. We were pleased with the reliable wifi

Very helpful owner . Great holiday having chosen the week of the Moors and Christians Fiesta

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in the apartment during August. As in previous reviews the apartment is clean and cosy. It was very hot during our stay but opening the front and balcony door created a cool breeze. Everything you need is within walking distance including the tram stop. The pool was lovely not particularly busy either. The residents have a fiesta once a year which happened to clash with our stay, it ended at 4am and the music was extremely loud. Overall, a great location. John and Yvonne are happy to help with any questions. Would recommend a visit.

famtastic. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was exceptional. From the moment we arrived at the airport with the organised lift by the owner to the villa.

The apartment has everything you need , in a lovely gated area with a big pool ( lifeguard in attendance ) Home from home. El Campello is in itself a perfect destination lots to do , shops, restaurant and wonderful beaches. The tram which is very very cheap and a stones throw from the apartment lets you explore local villages and town without the need of hiring a car.

Thank you so much already looking to book again.

Jo, Ben and Alex.

Notes:
Archaeological dig on rocks to right of beach. Good snorkelling off rocks - watch out for green wrasse. Alicante town has old town and castle. Other historic sights in the area to the north. At home: Table and chairs on both terraces - upstairs and downstairs. Loungers and chairs to take to the beach. We take towels to garden ( as it is lawned) or chairs. The shared pool is large and is probably around 4' at the shallow end, and over 6' at the deep end. There is a separate children's pool. It is not heated, but is available all year around. However it is usually only warm enough from May onwards, although it can be used up to December ( depending on the weather). There are showers, and a lifeguard in summer months. The gardens are lawned around the pool and there are palapas for shade and many trees that also offer shade. In summer it is also filled with flowers, bougainvillea and jasmine. There is also a patio area with fountain, and benches. At the back of the apartments there is parking available. The complex is gated and entrance and exits are through remote controlled gates (for cars). Utility Room: Washing machine (new in 2014). Boiler. Cupboards storing beach chairs, parasols, inflatables, sun hats, beach bags, cool bags and shopping bags and trolleys The apartment is a no-smoking zone; smokers outside on the balconies only please ( ash trays provided
