As many of you already know, in 2019 Cumbre del Sol was connected to internet with a fibre optics service. Residents in the area were able to benefit from the most reliable and powerful connection available to date, and to celebrate the occasion a special event was held by the telecommunications company Ibérica de Redes, the service provider that invested in the installation of the network that year. Since then, we have received several comments on that blog post and we thought it would be a great idea to provide a renewed version with more information and details on how to contract the service in 2022. So here goes!
Remote working and home entertainment
You know, that idea you have sometimes that really appeals: You’re spending a peaceful evening in your lovely home at Cumbre del Sol, when you feel like watching a film and just chilling out. Once you’ve decided what you fancy seeing on Netflix, HBO or your favourite platform, you can’t get the film to upload properly or the quality is quite bad because of your internet connection. And what about those days when you have a video conference for work, or you need to do something urgent and quickly online and the internet is taking forever? It has to be said that with the pandemic, remote working has become a permanent fixture in many sectors, making it easier to reconcile work and family and social life for lots of people. What better way to work than from your office or terrace in Cumbre del Sol and with the internet speed you need?
Just out of interest, and if you have ever wondered what it actually is, fibre optics is the technology used to transmit information in the form of light pulses through glass or plastic fibres and over long distances. In other words, it is a technology that provides your home with with internet, telephone and television in the fastest way currently possible.
If you are interested in obtaining information to contract the service for your home, there are several ways you can go about it. Ibérica de Redes has an office in Cumbre del Sol, and we suggest that you pay them a visit, and they will be happy to tell you all about the different options, speed rates and prices. You can find them in the Adelfas service zone, next to the pharmacy and Doctor Dobrucki’s clinic (who, by the way, granted us an extremely interesting interview published in the most recent issue of our Cumbre del Sol magazine).
You can also visit their website or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, and contact number and they will get in touch with you to resolve any queries you may have.
Ibérica de Redes offers you a connection worthy of your magical home in Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. As always, look out for our future blog posts full of news, inspirational ideas and activities on Costa Blanca Norte.

The last few months have been very difficult. We started by being at home one day after the next, and then continued with restrictions to what we could do. But it was and still is necessary to be responsible so that this situation can end soon, and so we can get back to enjoying every moment to the fullest.
Many lessons can be drawn from the last year. However, on a personal level, we can conclude that comfort and well-being at home are essential. And consequently, the desire for spaciousness and, if possible, an outdoor area.
That’s why our villas and apartments are everything you need to create a cosy environment. Have you had a chance to view them? We know that it is still a difficult time to travel and visit places far from our city of residence. That’s why at VAPF we offer alternatives so that you can get to know your next home without moving from where you are.
One of these options is our digital tours. Among its advantages, the most obvious is that you decide when you want to visit! After filling in our application form, one of our sales agents will contact you in your native language to arrange the day and time. Another advantage is that you decide from where and with whom to enjoy the tour through our villas. And who knows, maybe your next home!
However, if you are unsure about a specific development, we also offer another option. We recommend you attend one of the webinars we have scheduled for the coming weeks. The first one will be held on May 27th. And thanks to it, you will learn all about the Villas Advance: Lirios Design, Magnolias Sunset, Magnolias Pure Design… they will grab your attention!
In June, we also have two days of webinars on the calendar. On the 10th, you will learn more about what it’s like to live in Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. We will talk about how to live here and also about taxes. We know it may be less attractive than getting to know one of our villas by the sea, however, it is essential information for future residents! Besides, the webinar on the 24th makes up for everything. The reason being that during the “La Sella experience” you will get to know apartments where both nature and the sea are the main protagonists.
With all this information, you will be able to decide on your next home before you even visit it. Furthermore, if you decide to start your new life with us, during the process you will be able to access services such as an extranet. Here you can check the status of your home and receive personalised attention in your own language, among other things.
For your first in person visit, we have also built-in exclusive services for your maximum comfort. You will have a free one-night hotel stay the day before handing over the keys, which will be personalised. We will explain to you how the facilities work. In addition, to make it easier for you, we will take care of some of the formalities, such as arranging direct debit for the utilities for your new home if you need it.
So, there’s no excuse! Getting to know your new home from your current location is possible. Moreover, you can do it with all the guarantees and knowing that, already during your first visit, everything will be ready. If you want to see more about our properties and promotions, you can follow us on our blog, Instagram and Facebook. We look forward to meeting you!
The quality, the service, the leisure activities, the climate… if you want to find a reason to choose Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, there are plenty of them! There are many factors that will lead you choose one of our villas or flats.
From the very first moment, our clients are our top priority. That is why we offer personalised attention in your native language throughout the whole process.

And if that’s not enough, we also help you with utility set-up and keep a key to your home on hand if you wish.
As Anne, one of the residents of Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol says, we involve the client in the entire process. “I had a lot of feedback, and I felt comfortable to share it; I knew that when I asked for something, they would do their best to make it happen.” This is what Anne shared about the construction of what has been her home for the last ten years.
Anne and her husband Bob had been looking for a second home in a European country such as France or Italy for some time. However, “we always found something we were hesitant about, and finally, at Cumbre del Sol, there were no hesitations. It was a ‘yes’,” she says.
Something similar happened to another of our neighbours, Kenny Belaey, at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. With different goals than those of Anne and Bob, he was looking for a place to practice his favourite sport: trial cycling, a very common sport in Spain. At first, he had Barcelona, Valencia or Torrevieja in mind as cities to relocate and buy a new home. But it was a friend’s recommendation that eventually led him to Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. He told him about the wonderful views, the mountains and the surroundings. This place became home for him nine years ago now.
Our clients have always been content with the amenities and services in the surrounding areas. Mr. Wim chose one of our apartments in the Montecala Gardens development at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. He specifically says he chose it because of its “top quality.” Now, he values the space he has in his home so that he can have guests and still preserve his privacy.
The residents at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol also appreciate the range of activities that their surroundings offer. “The days here are very short,” says Anne, who can’t even count the numerous plans she and her husband have already made at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol: “We like to snorkel, scuba dive… we have many good friends here with whom we have barbecues as well.”
Mr. Wim also values the nature that surrounds his apartment. It allows him to have a greater connection with it, be it through hiking trails or swimming. From a more youthful perspective, Kenny is clear: “You can do everything. You can relax, eat good food, in the summer go to good parties….” Various ages, hobbies, tastes… there’s something for everyone!
You too can create a new community and have barbecues like Anne and Bob or visit the sea every day like Mr. Wim! At Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol, we have considered every last detail for you. Are you ready to experience it?
