Spain. –  East Coast (Costa Blanca)
There are two locations on the coast. El Campello – 25 minutes north of Alicante Airport. Guardamar. – 25 minutes to the south of Alicante Airport.  The Airport of Murica would be further south, and a 45 minute drive   North to Guardamar. Both towns on the coast are quiet and have lots to offer every age group with numerous restaurants,shops etc. Both areas have 7 mile long golden sandy beaches with restaurant lined promenades.     El Campello.   The apartments are large spacious 3 bedroom/2 bathroom very suitable for larger families. With the use of the sofa bed in the Living room, Apartment will sleep 8 persons.  There are ceiling fans in  bedrooms and Living rooms though there is always a nice breeze from the nearby coast. The apartments have full cooking facilities , washing machine, full size Fridge/freezer and TV etc.The Complex is a safe gated community complete with swimming pools, some with tennis courts and children’s play park.  Booking early can secure an apartment with a nice sea view. The beach,shops restaurants etc are only 5 minute walk. There is a well used Public Tram service with the stop less than 5 minute walk. Tram goes to Benidorm and south to Alicante and is very reasonably priced.  To access the many Thyme Parks in the Benidorm area it is best to take the tram and the connecting bus to the one of your choice. The Evangelical Church I recommend (in Benidorm) is also less than one hour by tram and 15 minute walk from tram station to the church. Directions and details supplied to guests.  In this area, 15 minutes north of Campello by tram, is a well known chocolate factory  were visitors can sample a selection and make purchases in the shop. This is popular with the children and most adults. In the evening it is a nice stroll for all the family, to stroll the short distance to the Harbour,  along the Prom with its many shops, restaurants and ice cream parlours. There may even be some market stalls in July and August. From Alicante there are day trips to the Isle of Tarbarco  etc. If renting a car in this area, though not necessary, there is the great advantage of making the trip up the mountain ,30 minutes inland from Benidorm, to see a very Spanish town located at the top with many restaurants, shops museums  etc. This location is a must for the best views and photos. The town is called Guadalest and you can, from the top, 15 minutes walk look down on the Guadalest lake or even get a flat bottom boat trip at suitable times of the year.                                                          Guardamar.   The 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment is on the top floor (7 th) it is fully equipped for cooking and relaxing or just taking in the magnificent views of both the River Segura and the Mediterranean over a lovely

This town has a lot of history and a very ancient site discovered of late, dates back to the 7 th Century and is located in the Forrest approximately 10 minute walk from the apartment towards the beach.
