Choose El Campello Holiday Homes for a Stay on the Costa Brava

Just along the coast from Alicante is El Campello – about 11 kilometres actually. Like many settlements on the Spanish Costas, El Campello has become a holiday destination where the old town remains pretty much as it has for a few centuries and a new resort area has been build close to. Holiday accommodation in El Campello is close to the longest stretch of beach on this attractive part of the Costa Brava.

Sun, sea, sand and grass

The much lauded Muchavista beach at El Campello is a stunning sweep of golden sand that stretches for 7kms and boasts the European blue Flag. Sunbathing and swimming are sublime but many people take self catering holiday homes in El Campello to enjoy the water sports here. Visitors can find snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, water skiing and wind surfing with many of the facilities being offered by or close to the marina or the Yacht Club. For those who prefer their sports to be drier, there are two golf courses within a short distance of much of El Campello holiday accommodation, both open to non-members.

Exploring the Old Town

One of the pueblo blancas, the Old Town of El Campello is easily distinguished from the resort area. If you manage to find a holiday villa in el Campello old town, it is a treat. You’ll have easy access to the pretty sights which include the sparkling whitewashed Town Hall and house of Culture. You can admire the Saint Theresa Church with its photogenic backdrop of the deep blue Mediterranean and walk along the waterfront to the Tower of Illeta. It stands proudly on the edge of the beach and it’s worth the climb to the top, to see the marvellous views. It’s a nice trip out to the caves at Canelobre to see the collection of impressive stalagmites and stalactites.

One of most sociable aspects of choosing El Campello holiday homes is the food culture in this particular corner of Spain. Nothing here is rushed (if you want that you’ll find a McDonalds in Alicante). As you walk about the Old Town the delicious smells will get those taste buds tingling. Stop at a pavement café and enjoy the wafts of garlic, paprika and freshly caught seafood being thrown on a grill. Take a seat in a tapas bar and sip oaky sherry and partake of tasty titbits and then late, after 9pm is good, enjoy a delicious dinner at a fine restaurant down by the marina.

The Costa Brava

If you want to get more intimately acquainted with the Costa Blanca, take the train that plies the tiny gauge railway along the coast. You can hop off and back again to visit Denia, Calpe or even the huge resort of Benidorm. In the opposite direction, you’ll arrive in Alicante. This is the town for your shopping, even more fine restaurants and a rocking nightlife.

El Campello’s holiday climate

The Costa Blanca is a lucky little stretch of coastline. It can boast of 300 days of sunshine a year making even winter a good time to choose El Campello holiday accommodation. You can expect average summer temperatures of 25+ degrees C and in winter it rarely drops below 12.

Flights to El Campello

You’ll have to fly into merry old England first, and then avail yourself of the many many cheap flights available to Alicante Airport from most of the UK’s main airports. Then it’s just a quick trip in a taxi or hire car.
