Furthermore, we are celebrating, because our Block C Blue Infinity luxury apartments are for sale as of May. Block C has 24 new apartments that stand out for their ample living space, with a surface area of over 240 m² and terraces that measure from 40 m² and up. They are also notable for their stunning ocean views and the commons areas complete with pools, gym, and wellness areas.

Later, we will be having the first Cumbre del Sol Photography Marathon, a great change for photographers to discover new parts of Cumbre del Sol such as the Cova dels Arcs and the Falla del Moraig route.

Masterplan: get to know our interactive map of the Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort

Masterplan: get to know our interactive map of the Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort

At VAPF, we like to stay up-to-date with the latest technology and we are working continuously to offer our clients the best options. Among our latest developments, we like to highlight Masterplan. Masterplan is a tool that we presented last February during the 2nd VAPF Agencies Convention.

What is Masterplan? It is an interactive map that works as a guide, so that both our clients and agents can better understand the features of our developments at the Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort, as well as the leisure areas, amenities, and nearby natural parks.

How do you get to it? You just have to go to the Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort website. When you click on “The Resort” in the top menu, another drop-down menu will appear and you will be able to click on the tab: Masterplan.

Once you are in Masterplan, it’s simple to use as it was built to be intuitive and easy. In the menu on the left, you will find the different sections that you can scroll through: areas (zonas), developments (promociones), leisure (ocio), amenities (servicios), and nature reserves (reservas naturales). When you click on each option, you will see other options appear below. For example, when clicking on Developments (Promociones), the names of all those available appear, starting with Jardines de Montecala and ending with Blue Infinity.

If you want, for example, to see where the Montecala Gardens development is; it’s as simple as clicking on Masterplan and on the Developments (Promociones) section, clicking on Montecala Gardens and the map that appears on the right will indicate the area where the development is. In addition, it will be accompanied by a “More info” (más info) button that when clicked, will take you to that particular development’s page where you can find all kinds of information such as price and images, as well as availability for the homes.

We hope you enjoy our Masterplan as much as we do. Remember that, if you want to stay up- to-date with all the activities and news regarding Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort, you can do so through our blog and our social networks.

Welcome the new season through the Cycle of Spring Concerts in Benitatxell!

Welcome the new season through the Cycle of Spring Concerts in Benitatxell!

The arrival of spring doesn’t just bring us more pleasant temperatures, it also means the arrival of interesting activities like the 13th Cycle of Spring Concerts in Poble Nou de Benitatxell. Every Saturday in March, at 8pm, you will have the chance to enjoy some live music at the Santa María Magdalena church where the Marina Alta orchestra got this musical month off to the best start with their tribute to Mozart.

The music genres that attendees will enjoy are undoubtedly varied: the programme offers traditional, with regional music heard in celebrations, more classical music, and modern sounds like jazz.

After the Marina Alta Orchestra concert, on the 9th March, there is something a bit different – the 7th Young Performers Competition. This contest aims to boost the interest of Benitatxell’s young people in music and the study of music.

On Saturday 16th March, the saxophone quartet Púrpura Dansa will fill the Santa María Magdalena church with the music of famous composers such as Grieg, Dvorak, Valero-Castells and Piazzolla. The quintet Reversió Grup brings the traditional sound of the dulzaina to the present day, accompanied by piano and percussion.

The 30th March brings the turn of local music from the Costa Blanca with two-step pieces and music from the Festivals of Moors and Christians. Finally, the municipal music group of Santa María Magdalena will be responsible for saying farewell to the 13th Cycle of Spring Concerts in Benitatxell.

If you want to stay up to date with all the news about events taking place close to Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort, follow our blog… and you won’t miss a thing! Every month we highlight the most relevant events so that you can choose the plans which suit you best.

Costa Blanca: a holiday destination to live in

Costa Blanca: a holiday destination to live in

Though you may also arrive at your next destination with suitcases… this time it will be to stay and live there! The Costa Blanca, with its 240km coastline and its average yearly temperature of 18 degrees, is a haven for those who want a peaceful and ideal home to live in. Even the World Health Organisation (WHO) has stated that this is one of the healthiest climates in the world. So, are you ready to start your new life in this fabulous part of Spain?

In addition to its good climate, there are three main reasons why the Costa Blanca is your destination to live in:

  • Gastronomy: We’re sure we won’t have to explain much about this point to you. Though the famous Costa Blanca rice dishes are being replicated all over the world, the originals are found here. And, throughout the entire area there are different options so that you can try them all and choose the one you like best! Beyond this typical dish, Alicante also has restaurants where you can sample some delicious dishes. Up to five establishments have at least one Michelin star, and the list keeps on growing!

But it’s not just rice we have here on the Alicante coast. The “denominación de orígen” classification of  Alicante wines is one of the most recognised in Spain and does not include just one type of wine. You will be able to taste wines of all kinds: white, red, sparkling, and fondillón, a unique type of wine from Alicante.

In addition to the wide variety of wines in the area, another star product is chocolate. Very close to Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort is Villajoyosa, a municipality with a great chocolate tradition where there are a number of companies which, for years, have worked to produce the best sweets in the country.

  • Tradition: The tradition of the Costa Blanca is reflected in all areas: both in gastronomy and in the daily life of its people and visitors. The best way to understand a culture is to experience the main holidays and traditions that take place throughout the year. The Moors and Christians, the Bonfires of San Juan, and the Falles are just some of the most important celebrations in some of the municipalities in the region which will help you to better understand the history of an area with many moments to celebrate and to remember.
  • Nature: The status of the Costa Blanca’s climate as one of the healthiest in the world is also due to the large number of natural parks in the area. And, of course, its beaches and coves deserve a special mention. Many of them are very close to Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort.

The numerous possibilities available on the Costa Blanca make it a perfect place to live. Do you need more information about the property developments we have here at VAPF? Contact us via this link and get ready to start your new life on the Costa Blanca.

Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort: a natural paradise within your reach

Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort: a natural paradise within your reach

If you are a nature lover, living in Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort gives you the chance to make the most of it. Few people can enjoy the privilege of watching the sunrise every day in your home facing the sea located in an ideal location surrounded by nature. Do you want to discover the most iconic spots and nature parks of the region? Take note and go out to discover them!

The Granadella Natural Park is known for being one of the few places that remain almost untouched on the Mediterranean coast and has been declared a Special Protection Area for Birds (SPA) of the Valencian Community and a Place of Community Interest (SCI) Penyassegats de la Marina. In addition to its great ecological and landscape value, the Granadella Natural Park also conceals some examples of the region’s historical and cultural heritage, such as traditional lime kilns or caves-shelter. In this enchanting area you will also find one of the most beautiful coves in the area, which shares its name with the park: Cala de la Granadella.

The park is just a 15 minute drive from Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort and, if you are a sports lover, you can get there by bicycle or by walking along the PR-CV-354. Due to the privileged proximity of the park to Cumbre del Sol, the owners of our luxury apartments and villas can easily enjoy a wide range of activities such as hiking, snorkeling or mountain biking.

A little further, in the Albir, we find the Sierra Helada Natural Park. Its curious name comes from two reasons: one of them is because it creates a colder microclimate than the surrounding one and the second reason is because some nights the brightness of the moon on the limestone creates a reflection similar to frozen surfaces. The natural park occupies almost the complete mountain range of the same name and stands out for its abrupt relief and cliffs of more than 300 metres. Nearby, in Calpe, is the well-known Peñón de Ifach Natural Park, whose rock has become one of the most recognised icons on the Costa Blanca over the years.

Another of the natural parks less than an hour from Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort is the Marjal de Pego-Oliva Natural Park, which is characterised by the high quality of its waters, as this area has one of the highest rainfall indices in the Valencian Community. One of the main curiosities of this place are the underground water springs that create small water lagoons. This natural park also highlights its biodiversity, both animal and plant.

The Macizo del Montgó Natural Park is also less than an hour drive from Cumbre del Sol and is characterised by having the largest cliffs in the area, its maximum height of 753 m above sea level and a flora of more than 650 species. It is also home to the Natural Reserve of Cabo de San Antonio de Jávea, a very emblematic place in the province of Alicante.

Begin your adventure! Come and visit each of these places. At VAPF we advise you to wear comfortable clothes, suitable footwear, water and sun protection. We are sure that you will fall in love with every corner!
