Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort is a little piece of paradise in which, thanks to its warm temperatures, you can make the most of all year-round. Summer 2019 has been no different, and we’ve had a calendar full of events and new happenings. Did you miss any of them? Here you’ll find a summary of all our events.
On June 23rd, we celebrated the magical St. John’s Eve to kick off the summer. This time around it was held at the La Cumbre Restaurant, where we were surrounded by a spectacular atmosphere and delightful views. The residents enjoyed a pleasant dinner and at midnight they made their wishes by the bonfire for the coming year. Those who opted to stay and continue the celebrations danced the night away until the wee hours of the morning.
On July 21st, as has become tradition here at VAPF, we commemorated Belgian National Day with neighbours and friends. This was the 3rd edition of the event which brought out over 200 people! The guests enjoy a welcome cocktail, dinner, a photocall, and music. In addition, the little ones had a great time with the entertainers and the older folks were able to participate in a raffle with great giveaways. Things were later livened up with a firework show as well as a singer who delighted us with her voice from the pool area, creating a festive atmosphere.
In August, we celebrated another special event, the 3rd Classic Car Rally. On this occasion, we collaborated with the Vehícles Històrics La Marina association of Benissa. The cars left from Benissa to drive to Restaurant La Cumbre, where they were on display all evening. Attendees celebrated the night with a dinner, music and a fun photocall.
In addition, on the 25th, the Tour of Spain passed through the residence and we were able to watch it from our villas. Guests were able to see everything from the front line while enjoying an aperitif and a meal that included music.
It’s important to note that they haven’t all been one-time events! During July and August, we offered free yoga sessions located in beautiful outdoor settings: Tuesdays at 7:00 pm at Cala del Moraig and Thursdays at 9:00 am at Mirador dels Testos, two locations in which our residents could get up close and connect with nature and the sounds of the sea.
Two padel tennis tournaments and one tennis tournament were held for our most sporty residents, in collaboration with Dylan Mary Tennis Academy on the padel and tennis courts at Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort.
It was a summer filled with events for all tastes and styles and we want to take the time to take all those who participated.

This will be going on until the 30th of August. But it doesn’t end there, we have much more! As we have been doing since the beginning of July, each Thursday we’re ready to assist you at our Cava Afternoons event at the Moraira VAPF Store (Calle Tosqueres, 5) from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. We recommend taking advantage of the day to visit Moraira, one of the treasures of Alicante’s coast! Discover its beaches as well as its exquisite gastronomy and end your day over a glass of cava.

If you love cycling, mark your calendar, because you have a special date at Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort on August 25th! The 176 cyclists competing in La Vuelta, Spain’s most prestigious cycling event, will be returning to Alto del Puig Llorença at Cumbre del Sol. The mountain pass will determine the final peloton before reaching the finish line, which will be in the town of Calpe.
This will be the third time that the race passes through Benitatxell, but unlike previous occasions, this time it will be a pass through and not a final stage, as was the case in 2015 and 2017. As such, Cumbre del Sol summit will be a key location in determining the outcome of the second stage of La Vuelta.
The organisation has indicated in the route book that the cyclists will be passing through Alto de Puig Llorença between 4:30 and 5:07 pm. Specifically, the three estimated times are as follows: if the peloton is cycling at 40 km/h, the expected arrival time will be 4:37 pm; if the speed is an intermediate 38 km/h, the ascent will begin at 4:51; and finally, if the average is the slowest, at 36 km/h, the cyclists would arrive at 5:07. The pace could turn out to be faster or slower, so we recommend that you get there with enough time to spare if you don’t want to miss anything!
In this stage profile, the Alto de Puig Llorença’s location, 24 km from the finish line, will reduce the size of the peloton, but not enough to stop the sprinters from competing for a victory in Calpe.
La Vuelta 2019 looks to have interesting participation, even though the last two winners at Cumbre del Sol are off sick due to injuries: the Dutchman, Tom Dumoulin, in 2015, and British Chris Froome, in 2017. Colombian Miguel Ángel López, Steven Kruijswijk, Rigoberto Urán, Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde are some of the cyclists who will be protagonists during the three weeks of the race and who will be fighting for the red cycling jersey.
