We purchased the property in 1990 so that we could enjoy holidays in the sun with our family and friends. The villa has been extended and extensively re-furbished over the years. The swimming pool was built by a Spanish 'pool specialist' in 1995. We wanted a large swimming pool because our family were all 'water babies'. Over the years, we have enjoyed many great holidays at Casabella.
Richard & June Bullock purchased this villa in 1990
We bought this property because we loved the location. Cala D'or was undeveloped in 1990, but we could see the great potential that it had. it was close to the sea, just 1 km to a small secluded beach with a 4* hotel nearby. We also saw that it was very convenient to get to Cala D'or. We could fly into Alicante airport, and know that we would be at our villa within 30 mins of leaving the airport. We loved the nearby fishing village El Campello, and this is now even more of an attraction with the superb marina, harbour, and picturesque promenade with it's many varied bars and restaurants.
Villa Casabella is uniquely located with mountain views from the pool-side, and sea views from the front terrace. Cala D'or is a secluded small village. and yet it is well connected. it is just 500 metres 'as the crow flies' from the sea. It has a small sandy beach just 1 km away. It has just a few of its own select bars and restaurants, and a 4* hotel nearby. And, El Campello is just 7 mins away by car, with all the facilities of banks, shops, supermarkets, open market, restaurants and bars. It's beaches, promenade, marina and harbour are a pleasure to enjoy at any time of day or night, and the promenade restaurants and bars are some of the finest on the Costa Blanca. For those who like a livelier holiday with busy beaches and the bright lights of the disco, Benidorm is just 20 min's drive away. With a car, Cala D'or provides so much choice, that it is convenient to get to....but difficult to leave behind. And you never need to be out of contact with your family & friends because Villa CasaBella has wifi installed.
We have just enjoyed a relaxing holiday at villa Casa Bella. The area itself is urban with not a huge amount within walking distance. There's a couple of smaller shops to get basics and a bar in the nearby Spa.
The bus that's takes you to El Campello or the tram station is almost directly opposite the villa, don't be concerned with bus noise as when I say bus it's a mini bus.
We hired a car via a company in El Campello for the week very cheaply, if you ask John on arrival he will kindly take you there.
El Campello itself is a lovely Spanish coastal town, the harbour and beach are blue flag and there are plenty of bars and restaurants and larger grocery shopping shops.
If you're after more choice and something more lively Benidorm is a 20 min car drive and 30 mins via the tram. There's a large shopping area with a huge carrefore should you only want to shop once for the week (we shopped daily)
The villa itself is spacious, clean and well equipped. The outside space is quiet but a little overlooked on all sides. The pool is lovely although this time of year it was freezing so we didn't get as much use from it as we would have liked but with gorgeous beaches nearby it wasn't the end of the world.
the property was beautiful and there was everything there you could want it was a delight to be able to stay in some-ones homes and I would recommend it to family and freinds going to book again for next year
Great family holiday in spacious clean villa with amazing large clear pool. As a family with 2 young children we had a fab holiday, home from home, with plenty of sunshine & breathtaking views of the sea & Benidorm in the distance. Lovely views of the mountains whilst having fun in the superb swimming pool. With a few bars within walking distance we enjoyed walking for meals & drinks in an evening. Local English bar served a delicious roast dinner on a Sunday. Small supermarket within walking distance for daily necessities. We chose to hire a car & really enjoyed driving to the town of Campello with gorgeous beach & array of bars & restaurants. This also had a larger supermarket. Really enjoyed our holiday & will definetly return again to this private villa. Will recommend to friends & family.
Cass Bella is a lovely villa with all needs met. The swimming pool is fantastic in the sunshine all day. Location is great but a car is required. El Campello has the best beach with a huge number of places to eat. John and Lyn were very friendly and I would highly recommend using the meet and greet service they offer. Great area for having bbq's after a long day in the sun. Would not hesitate to return
The property itself was lovely to look at, with Amazing views of Benidorm at the front porch. The bar at the top of the road is not much to look at but the people and the food are AMAZING! They were so accomodating...the food is home cooked and is presented beautifully (they also do takeaways). A car is really a must, but the bus and tram are right on your door step....but it would be easier to do the shopping with a car, as the best food shops are in Campello .Also if you go to El Campello in the evening its really hard to get a taxi back if you stay out later than 11.. I would warn people that my daughters hair went green and so did my husband and brother in laws grey chest hair....also our swimwear was ruined by the chloride (anything with white went green) we had to throw them away on our return home. There were tiles missing in the pool, and the general hygiene of the pool was not good, i had to get a scourer and clean above the water line as it was green.. there was also green all down the walls in the deep end, regardless of the heat we have never experienced this in any of our other villa holidays.The water level when we left had gone down at least 3 tiles, this should have been maintained more than it was!! ..Lynne and john were lovely people, very and friendly. Unfortunately i would not recommend this villa to friends or family. .the outside furniture was basic with only 4 proper loungers ( in a 6 bed villa, there should be 6 loungers) and one umbrella, the 2 other chair loungers had ill fitting covers...and the bedding was old fashioned and the sheets did not fit the beds properly as they were to big for the mattresses...its all small things, but they do make a difference. Also the dishwasher did not work, dispite someone coming to try a fix it..We had not planned on washing up for 2 weeks hence booking a villa with a dishwasher!! More care should be given especially when problems were pointed out. We did meet some lovely locals and dispite our disapointment with things, we did have a fun.

For next year.
Villa Casabella is found on Orihuela Avenue, Cala D’or, in the region of El Campello. The road leads onto the main coast road N332 that goes into El Campello then on to the A70 motorway. Both roads run the length of the Costa Blanca.
The main towns Benidorm and Alicante are both about 20 mins away by car. Villa Casabella is located about 500 metres from the sea, with a small sandy beach about 1 km away. There are also large sandy beaches nearby at El Campello, Villajoyosa and San Juan. These Spanish towns all have supermarkets and are good places for shopping.
Casabella is easy to reach. Take flights into Alicante Airport, hire a car, and drive to Cala D’or along the A70 motorway. This is a 25 mins drive. Buses and taxis are also readily available from the airport.
Cala D'Or itself is traditionally Spanish. It is a totally unspoilt, select urbanisation in a beautiful green valley, and close to the sea. Surrounded by hills, it is both picturesque and peaceful. It has a village atmosphere with some good local facilities, including a few bars, restaurants and small supermarket. It's laid back & peaceful but not remote.
There are many interesting places to visit nearby. El Campello and Villajoyosa both have open markets. El Campello is a small fishing town. It has a long stretch of sandy beaches, a great harbour and marina, and a picturesque promenade with many terraces, shops, little bars, and restaurants where fresh sea food is served.

You can visit different local markets, relax on the endless beaches, or visit the spectacular Theme Parks “Terra Mitica”and “Terra Natura”. There are many more places of interest just a short distance away. In the area around there are five 18 holes golf course.
Benidorm is a ‘must’ for children with: Aqualandia Water Park, and Mundomar (Sea World), as well as many other attractions .
The beautiful Jalon Valley is not too far away. Here, grapes are grown, & the local vineyards and ‘bodegas’ will be pleased for you to taste their wines. And don’t forget, dining out at the local restaurants can be very cheap. A ‘menu del dia’ meal will cost between 10 Euro and 18 Euro per person for a 3 course meal with bread and a drink of your choice …including wine.
