About Tracy Smeed
We have lived in Spain for more than 25 years enjoying this unique location, integrating with, and raising our family in the friendly local community. We particularly enjoy the sporting activities the area has to offer especially the Sailing and Windsurfing. (There is also great skiing to be had 4 hours away in Granada during the Season!) and of course we love the weather!
Why Tracy Smeed chose Calpe
We built this family villa to our own specifications completing the project in 2001. The location is wonderfully quiet overlooking green belt area and with a decidedly rural feel but yet only minutes by car to Calpe.
What makes this Villa unique
The house was designed to offer us the maximum comfort and space for our now grown up family. We love the out doors and the house is designed for outside living. We now enjoy our summers whenever possible touring the windsurfing locations in this and other parts of Spain.

Great villa in a quiet location but within easy reach of calpe centre. Definitely worth having a car. We were 4 adults and 4 kids 9,9,8,3. All loved it with the older ones especially loving the good size deep pool. We spent most of the time sat around the pool and bar area, it's a great place for relaxing and spending time with family and friends. All in all just as described and a great place to stay. Owners were quick to answer any questions and very helpful.
Beautiful villa with everything you need
The villa was lovely and even better than advertised. There is plenty of communal seating, tidy and spacious bedrooms and comfortable sofas for when the weather is not so good. The kitchen has all amenities you would require
Amazing villa! Much better than the photos suggest and the photos were great. Very spacious, clean, well-equipped and beautifully decorated. The outside space puts it in a league of its own. We had a wonderful 2-week stay here and there was a lot of space for us (two families). We would definitely recommend this villa.
Not quite the perfect villa.
Everything was as expected and response from management was excellent. However, we felt that not having air conditioning downstairs was the only issue. A couple of large fans would of helped. We would recommend this villa.
Stunning villa in a great location. We had a wonderful stay with our extended family (7A, 3C and baby). Every comfort needed for a relaxing break in the sun.
Thank you Rachel,
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us :-)
Beautiful quiet villa - amazing pool, patios, views and accommodation
We had a wonderful stay here in June. The villa is well designed with plenty of space for a large extended family (we were seven adults and two children), rooms, bathrooms and beds all lovely. The outside is where El Logarto comes into its own, fabulous, beautifully clean pool (never had to scoop one leaf or insect out of it) amazing patio area, bar and barbecue and lovely outside seating and dining area under shade for lunch and dinner. And great, expansive views of hills and distant glimpse of the sea at Calpe.
Just a few things to be aware of: the villa is about 5-10mins drive from restaurants/ beach and shops, so you can’t walk to anywhere - car is essential. The driveway down the the villa is sooo steep, if your hire car company gives you a car with a 1litre engine say you want a bigger engine, our Kias had a hard time getting back up the hill to get out! But once you get over that this villa is unbeatable! Thanks for all your help Tracey in making our stay so great.
Top tip - Calpe’s beaches are nice but we preferred little Cala Fustera which is just as close and has a fab beach bar.
Special interest holidays:
Calpe is a great place for rock climbing, walking and rambling holidays. The villa is close to the hills (5 minutes walk and you are in the campo) where there are some lovely country trails to follow. Lots of fauna and flora, peace and tranquillity.
We are about 5 minutes by car to the two lovely beaches in Calpe. Calpe has probably the best beaches in the area, two long expanses of soft sand stretch from either side of Calpe's huge "Rock" known as the Peñon d' Ifach. Lots of restaurants, bars and long promenades make it a perfect holiday location. But we are just far enough away from the crowds to enjoy the peace of the countryside
How to get there
Travel to Calpe from Alicante airport (about 45 minutes on the motorway) or from Valencia airport (about 90 minutes).
Taxis run from the airports but are expensive, we recommend you arrange a hire car to collect from the airport. We can assist you with this if required.
Calpe is 4km from the villa, Benissa 6km, Jalon valley 8km, Altea 12km, Moraira 12km. (Distances are approximate)
There are many large 'Tesco Type' supermarkets in Calpe at least 8 within 5 -10 minutes drive. There are also hundreds of bars and restaurants in town, there is one quite good Swiss restaurant nearby about 10 minutes walk.
