Find holiday accommodation in Calpe on Spain’s Costa Blanca

On Spain’s Costa Blanca lies the resort of Calpe, a typically Mediterranean village with gorgeous sandy beaches, rugged coastline and almost perfect climate. Steeped in history and culture, Calpe is also rich in traveller-friendly accommodation, including rental villas and apartments.

Kudos for Calpe

Reaching Calpe is simply, thanks to its close proximity to the airport at Alicante and to the Costa Blanca’s major resort of Benidorm. Calpe is a much quieter proposition and offers holidaymakers, whether visiting for the first time or regulars to this lovely part of the world, a wonderful base for a holiday on the Mediterranean.

Also close to Calpe, is the charming former fishing village of Altea, a delightful port that has retained much of its historic buildings and streets, and so is well worth a visit to see what changes have been wrought on a once-sleepy part of the world.

Once more on to the beach

Spain’s Costas – that magnificent and diverse stretch of coastline on the Med – are famed, naturally, for their beaches and Calpe enjoys some of the finest on the Costa Blanca. Families selecting a self-catering rental villa will be thrilled at the safe bathing beaches and quiet coves and bays that offer the perfect places to chill out on a holiday in Calpe. The town’s two main beaches, the Cantal Roig and the Playa Arenal, are both loved for their fine sand.

One thing guaranteed to tear your eyes away from the endless horizon of deep blue sea and endless sand is the famous Penon de Ifach, a rock formation standing 600m high that bears a striking resemblance to the Rock of Gibraltar. Considered the most potent symbol of the Costa Blanca, the Penon de Ifach is a nature reserve and well worth exploring on a day trip from your Calpe holiday accommodation.

Calpe itself is also a town that deserves exploring. There has been a settlement on this site for 3000 years and narrow mediaeval streets jostle for attention alongside the wider boulevards and avenues of the more modern town. Visitors can see examples of early Roman life alongside the later Moorish and Christian heritage of the town in the monuments and museums.

Foodies will love browsing in the fish market and might even be tempted to take something special back to their Calpe holiday rental to cook up a traditional Costa Blanca dish. Best to work up an appetite for that by taking advantage of Calpe’s terrific sporting opportunities – golf is popular here and the more energetic will want to hike in Penon de Ifach nature reserve, go mountain biking or even try their hand at rock climbing. Not to mention the water sports facilities that are available on the excellent beaches, including surfing and windsurfing, sailing and fishing, and scuba diving.

Temperatures on the up

Typically for the Costa Blanca, Calpe enjoys a beautiful Mediterranean climate of long and hot summers and cool but dry winters. Expect average daily temperatures of 30?C from June until September and while winter days only average around 16?C, the mild climate makes Calpe a fine destination to consider for holiday accommodation all year round.

Getting here

Alicante airport is the gateway to Calpe – the resort is around an hour’s drive north-east of the airport. For those travelling from Australia and New Zealand, the quickest way to reach Calpe is to fly into London’s Heathrow Airport and to get a connecting flight to Alicante. There are daily flights to Alicante from airports across the UK so reaching your holiday rental villa in Calpe could not be easier.
