Sun yourself in Calpe villa rentals

Prepare to gasp as the craggy Penyal d'Ifac rock comes into view over the bays of Calpe. It rears up from the sapphire-blue Mediterranean Sea like a frozen giant, bisecting the Costa Blanca and separating the duo of shimmering playas that make the city such a popular summertime resort. Along the shores on either side, you'll find enticing Calpe holiday lettings casting their gaze across the palm-spotted promenade or shouldering above the flamingo-peppered salt flats behind. A buzzing nightlife scene exists on the bay of La Fossa, too, while entrancing Roman ruins and medieval hill towns beckon all around.

History

Bathe in ancient history in Calpe

There's plenty of evidence to show that Calpe was inhabited long before the Romans came to Spain. Finds and excavations on the slopes of the Penyal d'Ifac and above the surrounding ravines has indicated that the area was fortified and used as a lookout during the Bronze Age. However, it's the striking Banos de la Reina – the so-called Queen's Baths – that really capture the imagination. They're carved into the rocks that line the eastern end of Playa Arenal, and are all that remains of a manmade fish farm dating from the ancient era.

How to get around

Travel in and around Calpe

The town of Calpe can mostly be explored on foot. Its 2 main beaches – Levante and Playa Arenal – are linked by a salt-washed Paseo Maritimo. However, this is a large resort and it can take up to 40 minutes to walk from end to end. That's why many a traveller will opt to rent a car. Not only are there speedy boulevards connecting the main areas of the city, but having your own wheels can also widen your accommodation choices, opening up all the Calpe villa rentals that are off the beaten track, in the surrounding Spanish mountains and by the rugged Costa Blanca coves.
