Why David Elsy chose El Campello
Coveta is a wonderful escape location for me. It is a friendly village which is tucked away from the busy centers but at the same time these are easily accessible. I don't like the intense heat of summer therefore I tend to use it myself for the cooler seasons to get away from the damp and cold of the British winter!
What makes this Apartment unique
The village has everything within a few yards, train station, supermarket, bars, restaurants and the sea. All these within 2 or 3 minutes walk. Location, Location, Location.

The flat was great, very clean and tidy, well equipped with oven, toaster, kettle, microwave, coffee machine and cafetière. It had everything you need to go to the beach. Two air con units, amazing.
There are bars and restaurants at the other side of the road. Waking distance little beach, perfect for families. Great massive swimming pool perfectly looked after. Nice neighbourhood and pleasant people. Really really happy. We had a great time. Totally recommended.
Thank you for your lovely review, be delighted to see you again.
Lovely apartment. Enjoyable stay.
Beware if you have chest or breathing problems as there is a ferocious amount of pollen from the pine and palm trees at this time of year.
Nice spot for beach and bars.
Good location furniture needs updating and more up to date information on local area. Will probably revisit again made some nice friends.

Buen apartamento sin apartamento.
El apartamento esta repintado y el comedor está mejor que en las fotos. Es un primero. Está limpio y dispone de un buen menaje. El mobiliario de la terraza es mejorable.
La urbanización es cómoda y la piscina está bien.
Hay una tienda cerca para lo más imprescindible.
No dispone de plaza de aparcamiento. Hay que aparcar en la calle. En frente hay una placita con unas 15 plazas. Los festivos puede costar aparcar.
El propietario responde rápidamente a los correos.
La playa más cercana es muy cómoda, tranquila y no está masificada, ideal para ir con niños pequeños, pero a veces llega mal olor de algún desagüe.
Beach 50 yards from apartment grounds. A quiet sheltered cove, safe for swimming within the breakwater and with beach restaurants.
Alicante airport is 25 minutes drive. You can hire a car or taxi at the airport or we can arrange for our local agent to meet you on arrival and transport you to the apartment.
Cars can also be hired at the supermarket in the village. A bus service to El Campello runs from the village square behind apartment as well as train services up and down coast from the station less than 5 mins. away. With such good transport links a car is not essential.
El Campello 5km. Alicante 20 km, Alicante Airport 25km. Benidorm 15km.
There is a Supermarket in the village less than 5 mins walk away. Directly behind the apartment on the village square are a selection of good restaurants as well as very friendly relaxed bars.
Banks and shopping at El Campello are 7 minutes on the train, where there is a huge choice of authentic Spanish restaurants and bars, serving delicious meals or tapas. The Paseo del Maritimo, or promenade which is almost 2 miles long, makes for a lovely evening stroll. The Marina and port sit at one end of the bay, offering a lively fish market as well as a wide selection of restaurants.
For those wanting some 'retail therapy' Alicante is definitely worth the train journey and if you crave an 'English' breakfast there is always Benidorm!
The surrounding countryside and mountains are spectacular and dotted with fascinating villages all with a history and a story to tell. Views from the lofty mountain fortress of Guadalest rival those from anywhere else in Spain, and it is said that you can see Ibiza on a clear day from the top of the mountains.
Winter: If you are looking for somewhere to forget the winter blues, then the Costa Blanca enjoys warm weather all year round and in fact the Who describes the climate of the Costa Blanca as one of the best and healthiest in the world. The weather in winter is very mild compared to northern Europe. Most winter days are clear and sunny with little rainfall and you can expect around six hours of sunshine each day. The average temperature is 16 degrees but can be unpredictable and varied so a ‘mixed’ wardrobe is essential! Of course the apartment has heating so you will be nice and cosy on any chilly nights. Being in Spain out of season gives you the opportunity to explore in comfort. If you are a passionate golfer there are many courses in the area and no snow to worry about! If it gets too quiet for you, Alicante being a city is ‘open’ and ‘parties’ all year only a short train ride away and ladies the shops are great!
