Vacation Rental Description
Villa Montana Vista is situated in Calpe on the scenic northern Costa Blanca approximately 65 kilometres north of Alicante. It is surrounded by pine woodland and boasts exceptional sea and mountain views. It is located in a pleasant and private residential area not far from Calpe railway station and within 10 mins drive of the town and local beaches.
Calpe combines all the attributes that all the other coastal resorts have to offer. By-passed both by the motorway and the N332 main road, it feels pleasantly out-on-a-limb, with no through traffic. The town has an interesting mix of modern supermarkets, traditional groceries, bodegas and chique boutiques. It has two huge and several smaller beaches with long, traffic-free promenades that wind behind them. Walk far enough along beach promenade from the town and you reach the thriving fishing harbour with it's multitude of restaurants offering freshly caught seafood. The imposing Peñon de Ifach, a much-photographed monolith of limestone rock that soars 1,000 feet vertically from the sea, towers above it.
Not to be missed is a stroll around the old town to admire the incredible hand-painted murals, the old castle grounds, quaint cobbled streets and local museums. Calpe has a vast number of bars and numerous reasonably priced restaurants of international and Spanish local cuisine. The traditional Spanish fishing port and the Old Town offer a welcome contrast to the cosmopolitan beach front promenade and the wonderful sandy beaches which extend either side of the Penon. Those who like walking will especially enjoy the wild seaside path through the Nature Park at the foot of the Penon or the more challenging route to the top. Also worthy of note is the signposted 4 hour circuit around the Sierra Olta which you can access directly from the villa.
From Calpe, it's just about possible to see the tower blocks of Benidorm, some 20 kilometres away. Before that, there’s Altea, a charming cluster of white-washed houses and a particularly impressive blue-domed hilltop church and Albir, a smart resort with a white pebble beach.
