2014 Activity holidays2014 Sunshine Activity Holidays

The Costa Blanca is more often than not associated with sunshine, beautiful Mediterranean beaches and great memories of summer holidays spent on the coast. And this is a perfectly correct perception of what the Costa Blanca has to offer – but it is very far from the whole story. More and more people are coming to this part of the northern Costa Blanca in the cooler months of spring and autumn to enjoy the dramatic beauty of the countryside in an area that is often overlooked by the foreign tourist. However, when foreigners do come here “out of season”, they appreciate what makes this a great holiday destination away from the beaches.

The focus tends to be on outdoor activities in the stunning countryside, with an emphasis on walking, climbing, biking and bird watching. The climate is generally mild and bright in spring and autumn, with temperatures in the high teens to low twenties (centigrade), and this makes for a perfect opportunity to get out and about and fully appreciate the mountains and valleys of this part of Spain.

With this in mind, and working in collaboration with a local company specialising in

we have put together a number of “package” options for our guests, based on different lengths of stay, differing interests, etc. These options can be taken exactly as they stand or altered to suit guests’ differing requirements – so for example if someone wanted to come for a longer or shorter period or wanted to take part in more or less activities during their holiday, this could be easily arranged.

The emphasis, however, is on making everything as easy and as straightforward as possible for our guests, so they can be assured that everything will be taken care of, from suitable transport for their chosen activity, to appropriate packed lunches on their days out. Evening meals are also part of the deal, so there is no need to search out a restaurant in town after a long and possibly tiring day in the countryside – it is all provided “in house”. We offer a choice of room options (single, twin or double) and we can also quote for those that prefer a self-catering option – we have a self-contained apartment on the premises too.

Many guests took advantage of our package options in 2013 and we look forward to welcoming many more in the year ahead. This part of Spain really does have so much more to offer than wonderful beaches and vibrant nightlife and with two airports within easy reach at Valencia and Alicante, it really is very simple to get here from the UK. Not only EasyJet and Ryanair, but also BA, Norwegian and several others now offer extremely competitive fares, so there really is no better time to select one of our activity packages, find a good flight option, and see what surprises Spain has in store before the summer season has even begun!
