Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol is at the heart of the Costa Blanca and it offers a wide variety of luxury villas and apartments. All residents choose to live here because of the lifestyle it offers and because it’s the perfect place to enjoy the sun and pleasant temperatures throughout the year, as well as nature and the sea. All these characteristics are typical of the area which has everything you could need, assuring that your new life will be filled with leisure and relaxation. But thanks to the events organized by VAPF and nearby associations, we ensure your life at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol is also lively. These events allow you to get to know your neighbours, as well as the people who live in Benitachell and neighbouring cities.
First, we’d like to introduce you to the Benitachell International Neighborhood Association. It has 220 members, and they offer quarterly information about the community and neighbourhood. Its members also benefit from some discounts, free rubbish collection, and they can also sign up for food and wine tasting tours, attend cooking classes, etc. We recommend you sign up to get to know the residents and get involved in life at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol. The Puig Llorença Neighborhood Association (La Asociación de Vecinos Puig Llorença) is also in Cumbre del Sol. In this association, residents gather to talk about matters that affect the neighbourhood and do activities together.
If instead of meeting people who live nearby, you’d rather meet people within your age group, then the Association for Retirees and Pensioners could be perfect for you. Its members often gather to share their life experiences and create memories together. Aside from these associations, there’s also the Neighbourhood Watch, who oversees the monitoring of the area, and the Voluntary Fire Brigade, a group that looks after our safety. Their facilities are by the northern entrance, near The Lady Elizabeth school.
On the other hand, the Teulada Moraira Lions Club forms part of Lions Clubs International (LCIF), which is the biggest organisation in the world, with millions of members and clubs in 210 countries. In October of 2019, the association celebrated its 25th anniversary collaborating with the municipality of Benitachell and attending to the needs of the most vulnerable groups of people. The club has succeeded in acquiring free books, meal vouchers for families, and strong involvement in Christmas campaigns, as well as providing materials through donations to Civil Protection and the Local Police.
However, the town doesn’t only host associations that allow you to get involved on a local or international level to better your local environment; it also offers groups that invite you to take part in traditional activities and sports. For example, if you like to dance, you can join Casa Rociera, a Sevillanas association, or the Grup de Danses Morro Falqui, where you can dress up in traditional costumes and act during local holidays.
Other groups that are rarely absent during local holidays are the members of the Municipal Sta. M. Magdalena Musical Ensemble (Agrupación Músico Municipal Sta. M. Magdalena) and the Asociación de Cavallistes i Carreters. The municipal band was founded in 1987 and is composed of 45 musicians. It has always had an important cultural and social presence, and it was recognized as a Bien de Interés Inmaterial de Relevancia Local (Intangible Good of Cultural Local Interest) in 2011. Meanwhile, the members of the Asociación de Cavallistes i Carreters have revived one of the most traditional holidays: the celebration of “Sant Antoni”. Thanks to the association, it has become a day where people go out into the streets, enjoy a popular lunch and a parade which features neighbours and animal lovers from all over the region.
The bravest and the sports lovers can join the Multiesport Benitatxell Club (Club Multiesport Benitatxell), which offers activities for adults and children: athletics, triathlon and fitness classes. The club also offers specialized training in whichever swimming style you want to improve, so you can get results and be more efficient when swimming.
This brief presentation of nearby associations couldn’t come to a close without mentioning BioMoscatell. This vineyard project was started in 2012 and aims to maintain traditions. It offers a quintessential wine that’s native to the region: the muscatel wine. The association produces its own wine, the Moraig wine, and organises walking tours so anyone can discover the passion and work behind what they do.
Now that you know the main associations that are within your reach, all that’s left to do is to choose one. Sign up and share unique moments with your new friends. You can also follow us on Facebook so that you don’t miss out on any event. We hope to see you soon at Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol!
