About Tracy Smeed
We have lived in Spain for more than 25 years enjoying this unique location, integrating with, and raising our family in the friendly local community. We particularly enjoy the sporting activities the area has to offer especially the Sailing and Windsurfing. (There is also great skiing to be had 4 hours away in Granada during the Season!) and of course we love the weather!
Why Tracy Smeed chose Calpe
We built this family villa to our own specifications completing the project in 2001. The location is wonderfully quiet overlooking green belt area and with a decidedly rural feel but yet only minutes by car to Calpe.
What makes this Villa unique
The house was designed to offer us the maximum comfort and space for our now grown up family. We love the out doors and the house is designed for outside living. We now enjoy our summers whenever possible touring the windsurfing locations in this and other parts of Spain.

Stunning villa in a great location. We had a wonderful stay with our extended family (7A, 3C and baby). Every comfort needed for a relaxing break in the sun.
Beautiful quiet villa - amazing pool, patios, views and accommodation
We had a wonderful stay here in June. The villa is well designed with plenty of space for a large extended family (we were seven adults and two children), rooms, bathrooms and beds all lovely. The outside is where El Logarto comes into its own, fabulous, beautifully clean pool (never had to scoop one leaf or insect out of it) amazing patio area, bar and barbecue and lovely outside seating and dining area under shade for lunch and dinner. And great, expansive views of hills and distant glimpse of the sea at Calpe.
Just a few things to be aware of: the villa is about 5-10mins drive from restaurants/ beach and shops, so you can’t walk to anywhere - car is essential. The driveway down the the villa is sooo steep, if your hire car company gives you a car with a 1litre engine say you want a bigger engine, our Kias had a hard time getting back up the hill to get out! But once you get over that this villa is unbeatable! Thanks for all your help Tracey in making our stay so great.
Top tip - Calpe’s beaches are nice but we preferred little Cala Fustera which is just as close and has a fab beach bar.
A wonderful, high class villa with superb interior and exterior with mountain and sea views
We have just returned from a week in this villa, we were a party of 6 adults, a 4 yr old child and 10 month old baby. An amazing location with wonderful views, it surpassed all expectations. The interior was superbly decorated and furnished and the kitchen fully equipped. All bedrooms and bathrooms were of a similar high standard. A travel cot and high chair were supplied as promised. The villa was so amazing we spent most of our time there, venturing out only a few times, a car is definitely necessary if you wish to go to Calpe or explore the lovely surrounding area. We made full use of the pool, jacuzzi and bar area. We all agreed a great holiday and highly recommended.
Thank you for your kind review.
We are really happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and that you had a great holiday.
A big thank you for leaving the villa (almost) immaculate, it was hard to believe anyone had stayed but for the few groceries left! Thank you again, exceptional guests who we hope to welcome back some time in the future.
Second year and even better.
2 Grandparents. 4 kids ( 2 Sons with stunning wives) 3 grandchildren (2-3 and 6)
A perfect family getaway.
The pool was perfect with a hot tub a nice extra.
Plenty of sun beds and other outside areas.
Inside is fantastic but weather keeps you outside.
In the evenings we had table tennis and darts comps. Great fun. And if you 'drink' the bar is great.
We visited last year and suggested a few kitchen upgrades. These were done so no room for any grumbles.
We would ( all 9 of us) recommend this classy villa to everyone that respects good things in life.
I have just returned back from a 1 week stay at this amazing place. I went with 7 others to celebrate a friends 40th birthday and we were over impressed with the cleanliness, size, facilities and outside space this villa offers.
We didn't hire a car as we were happy basing ourselves at the villa although taxis are around 15 euros one way to Calpe centre. It may be beneficial to hire a car if you wanted to get out and about as the location is up in the hills - which offers sea and mountain views.
The interior of the villa is very smartly finished and no expense has been spared on the fixtures and fittings. It has everything you can think of for a comfortable stay.
If I had to say anything negative it would be that the chemicals used in the hot tub get on your chest which makes you cough. The dart board needs a light above it for night time use and the key to the side gate was unavailable which meant to take rubbish to the street skip you have to carry it a fair way in the heat or in the dark. However, I do realise I'm digging for fault and it doesn't deserve any removal of rating stars as the villa completely exceeded our expectations!
Great villa for a family holiday
This villa was perfect for our family party of 7 adults and 3 children. The master bedroom is amazing and the facilities throughout the villa are great. We used the bbq and the outdoor dining area nearly every night - and really enjoyed them. The kids were impressed by the pool toys and dvd collection.Tracy was available at the end of the phone and was really helpful. The steepness of the drive was a bit of a challenge but easy when you got used to it! All in all a great villa as long as you have a car to get about.
Special interest holidays:
Calpe is a great place for rock climbing, walking and rambling holidays. The villa is close to the hills (5 minutes walk and you are in the campo) where there are some lovely country trails to follow. Lots of fauna and flora, peace and tranquillity.
We are about 5 minutes by car to the two lovely beaches in Calpe. Calpe has probably the best beaches in the area, two long expanses of soft sand stretch from either side of Calpe's huge "Rock" known as the Peñon d' Ifach. Lots of restaurants, bars and long promenades make it a perfect holiday location. But we are just far enough away from the crowds to enjoy the peace of the countryside
How to get there
Travel to Calpe from Alicante airport (about 45 minutes on the motorway) or from Valencia airport (about 90 minutes).
Taxis run from the airports but are expensive, we recommend you arrange a hire car to collect from the airport. We can assist you with this if required.
Calpe is 4km from the villa, Benissa 6km, Jalon valley 8km, Altea 12km, Moraira 12km. (Distances are approximate)
There are many large 'Tesco Type' supermarkets in Calpe at least 8 within 5 -10 minutes drive. There are also hundreds of bars and restaurants in town, there is one quite good Swiss restaurant nearby about 10 minutes walk.
