The Costa Blanca is a wonderful place due to its excellent weather and lovely little towns that are spread throughout the whole area. Benitatxell, being one of those towns, is where you’ll find Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, home to our best apartment and luxury villa developments. Furthermore, during this season, the landscape transforms to make way for autumn postcards and offers a very special Christmas under the sun and next to the sea. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that it’s wintertime here, as the temperatures are so mild and the weather is spectacular, but little by little, the Christmas spirit is sweeping over the region. In fact, we’ve decorated different places at Cumbre del Sol and the residents have decorated their homes to welcome the holidays.

Besides Cumbre del Sol, all the towns and cities that are close by also organise numerous events to celebrate Christmas. This is the case for Benissa that inaugurated their nativity scene on the 1st of December. Music, films, workshops, and a Christmas market…Benissa has everything that you could need to spend a magical time with your family and friends, and just like in years past, the Three Kings will arrive to the city on January 5th to hand out gifts.

Benitatxell is no exception, as they have organised a Christmas market on the 15th of December with food stalls, clothes, arts and crafts, a gymkhana, and the famous “Burreta de Nadal” or Christmas donkey. In addition, children between the ages of 3 and 12 have until December 18th to enrol in Christmas school and do crafts, sports, traditional games and Christmas activities with other children on the 23, 24, 27, 30 and 31st of December and 2nd and 3rd January from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. We’ll give you a preview of the whole schedule for the month of December, as on the 24th, Santa Claus will visit the city with a parade starting at 5:00 pm. The youngest ones can watch a film in the social centre on Thursday, the 26th at 6:30 p.m., listen to Christmas carols on the 27th at the church or even watch a puppet show on the 28th at 12:00 pm. We can also tell you that the first week of January will be full of fun Christmas events: a visit from the Three Kings’ messenger (January 2nd), a children’s theatre, Christmas park with blow-ups, face painting and much more (January 4th). Don’t forget the traditional Three Wise Men parade and the distribution of gifts (January 5th at 6:30 pm).

To the south, you’ll find the town of Teulada-Moraira, also close to Cumbre del Sol. After the Teulada English Choir’s Christmas concert on December 6th, the city will be totally immersed in music as the AMCT invites you to attend its Christmas concert scheduled for December 20th in the Santa Catalina church in Teulada. In addition, the Teulada-Moraira Auditorium offers you an exception program during the holidays with a performance of Swan Lake by the Moscow Ballet and they UCAM Symphony Orchestra on December 21st, and the Christmas concert by Alicante’s Youth Orchestra (OJPA) on December 28th. On December 22nd, the city will have a typical Christmas market on Avenida Santa Catalina and the Town hall Plaza, Plaza del Ayuntamiento, in Teulada with local artisanal products. You can also continue until you reach Altea where you’ll find an ice-skating rink, rides, and games that await you in the Plaça del Nadal.

If you’d like to live a different and unique experience, then we recommend visiting the Baleária Port in Dénia. The city has everything up and ready for Christmas, in fact they turned on the lights and kicked off the holiday season on November 30th. Both adults and the younger ones can enjoy the ice-skating rink (until January 6th) and inflatable castles (until January 4th). In addition, the Jauja Port will host a concert by Valencia’s Higher Conservatory Orchestra, magician, Hugo Arcil, will surprise everyone with his tricks on the 23rd, and the children’s show “El Mundo de Drilo,” will take place on December 30th.

Lastly, you can take advantage of Christmas to visit Valencia or Alicante. Cumbre del Sol is conveniently located halfway between the two cities, both offering a multitude of activities throughout the month of December and early January: lights, a Christmas market, Santa Claus’ house, ice skating rinks, slides, a fair, and the Cavalcade of Magi (Three Kings Parade).

The best time of the year begins now and VAPF wants to make sure that you enjoy it to the fullest. Let yourself be swept away by the Christmas spirit and discover everything that’s been organised in the surrounding area to make these holidays exceptional. As for us, we invite you to unleash your creative side by decorating your home and we remind you that the best way to find out about the events we organise is by following us on our Facebook page.
