There are many things to see and do, both at our finca and in the surrounding region. Get inspired!
Our swimming pool is purified on a natural basis. This guarantees swimming without prickly eyes! Beside the ‘normal’ swimming pool, there is a huge water basin on our estate. Depending on the amount of rainfall during winter, this basin serves very well as a natural swimming pool. For both people and dogs! We have made special stairs so you can jump into the water and get out, without any hassle.
Got thirsty after an entire day of exploring or tanning at the pool? Come and have a drink and bite at our poolbar. There is WIFI so you can check your email or share your picture perfect holiday with the rest of the world.
During high season you are welcome to enjoy a freshly cooked meal with us a few times a week. Imagine a barbecue accompanied with rich salads and patatas bravas, a Mexican taco and tortilla evening, or wide range of tapas and refreshing sangria. One thing is for sure; you won’t go to bed hungry and you can easily roll into your safari tent with a full belly. If you stay at Casa El Caracol it’s our pleasure to give you a little push up on the mountain. 😉
Last but not least: we offer a fresh Smi-Sma-Smoothie service! If you are interested, we’ll deliver a fresh smoothie on your doorstep every day; filled with fresh fruit and sometimes a little bit of veggies. Imagine: sipping your smoothie in the morning sun.
fitness & sports
Do you wanna get moving in between lifting mojitos and calamaris? You can go completely wild at our finca. Weights, a punching ball and some other fitness equipment are at your disposal for a killer workout. No inspiration? Every day we write a new workout on the board so you can sweat without overheating your brain. Don’t feel like fitness? Practice your summersault on the trampoline, or kick your vacay-buddy’s ass with a game of pingpong. Let’s go!
hiking & biking
If you’re into hiking and biking, the surrounding area of our finca is a true walhalla. The famous mountain range La Carasquetta is right in our backyard. The highest top (Cima Carrasqueta) is about 1204 m above sea level. There are hiking routes you can start from there, and for the fanatic cyclist the climb to the top is absolutely it.
On our own estate we have also set out a three hiking routes of 1.5 hour, 2 hours and 3 hours. If you want we can be your guide, but if you are up for a little adventure our cards with clues will do just fine.
Horse girls (and boys) also won’t want for anything. Why would you explore the area on a bike if you can also do this on a horseback? Gallop over the Spanish campo while you hold the manes of your Penny. That sounds pretty cool, right? They are well-cared-for private horses on which you can make a guided tour for 1 or 2 hours. If you don’t have a lot of experience yet, you can also just ‘get the feeling’ in the ring.
Do you feel like shopping, having lunch at a café terrace, checking out beautiful Moorish architecture, or just broadening your horizons a bit more? Make a city trip to Alicante (0.5 hour) or Valencia (1.5 hour).
Or visit Guadalest, a scenic mountain village with a great view on the lake and the lush valley. We also recommend that you visit the Algar waterfalls on your way back. Great news for real aquaphiles; you can also swim here! Also you should definitely pay a visit to the caves of Busot; a real gem. In addition, there are stunning hiking trails through the mountains near the caves. If you are hungry afterwards, you should definitely spoil yourself with the ‘cosina traditional’ at Restaurante Ca Tonno.
outdoor sport activities
Do you feel like exploring? The brothers from Migjorn Aventura will take you on an adventure! From paraglading and canyoning to jet skiing and surfing. Breath in new experiences and let go of your limits. Check their website for more info.
If you want to cool off you don’t have to leave our finca, but if you are in need of some vitamin sea you don’t need to drive for hours since the beach of El Campello is 20 minutes away. There is a great boulevard with many restaurants right on the beach. Especially in the evening there is a lot going on.
The village Vilajoyosa (45 min drive) with her golden yellow beach is absolutely worth the while. All together the beach is no less than 3.5 kilometers long and in some places the width goes to up to 100 meters. No risk of being pushed onto your neighbours towel, even during summer. Right next to the beach you’ll find the fishermen’s cottages painted in beautiful pastel colors. Super Instagram-proof!
No beach, but well worth mentioning. This place also offers you a nice swim and chill in the sun: El Salt. Nature was kind enough to make a beautiful 20-meter waterfall in the river de la Torre and let it flow into a clear blue ‘rock pool’. In the summer you can do cannon balls in the water and have picnic under the trees along the waterfront. A real treat!
