Parques Casablanca is a beautiful apartment/hotel complex in hills near La Fustera Cove between Moraira and Calpe.
This 2nd floor apartment sits atop the highest point in the complex with sweeping views across beautifully landscaped pools, down to the sea and the Rock Ifach at Calpe with gentle green hillsides behind. It is fully equipped for 6 people (with use of sofa bed) and the large living space is complemented by an elegant yet business like kitchen, luxury shower room with twin basins and double sized shower, and a very large terrace which serves as an extra, outdoor room, and is furnished with additional dining table & chairs plus recliners. The terrace benefits from two large awnings to protect you from the mid-day sun, which are independently operated by a remote control unit. The apartment is smartly furnished, but comfort is our priority, after all - you’re on holiday.
The Parques Casablanca Complex: Security, modern technology and easy access to all areas feature highly here, along with such facilities as a Reception area, a shaded poolside dining area with pool bar (seasonal) serving drinks and snacks, secure underground parking and an on-site Gymnasium. Unfortunately, the heated indoor pool, sauna and jacuzzi. have had to be temporarily closed due to the excessive increasing price of electricity in Spain, making it unviable to keep open at this time. . (There is a small fee payable directly to Reception for the Gym).
Although this is a 2nd floor penthouse style apartment, the whole complex is wheelchair friendly with lifts, spacious walkways and wide openings. There are no keys - a swipe card grants entry to each apartment with a wave of the hand. Lights come on magically in front of you and turn themselves off again behind you. Hi-tech, yes but with a friendly feel and ease of use. The complex is in a delightful setting above Fustera Cove, and great attention has been given to providing daytime comforts and evening magic. The pools are a special feature, and the children have one to themselves.
The Apartment: The Apartment is furnished along modern, clean lines, and we hope we have provided everything you will need . . and a little more. The living area is larger than in many apartments and leads onto the wide, open terrace which is furnished for both outdoor dining and just lounging on recliners in the sunshine or under the shade of the awning. Our inside dining table provides seating for 6 when extended, and the whole apartment has been fully equipped for this number of guests if required. Our sofa bed has been carefully chosen for both comfort and ease of operation, and there is somewhere to store bedlinen during the day. There is a small extra charge if the sofa bed is to be used to cover the extra laundry costs.
The bedrooms are of comfortable almost equal size, and provide lots of hanging space in large mirrored wardrobes with high specification fittings. The Master Bedroom with kingsize bed opens onto the Terrace, and is next door to the creamy marble-tiled Shower Room with twin basins and over-sized shower. Bedroom 2 can be twin or double. The Kitchen has a dishwasher and has been meticulously equipped.
La Fustera: The small cove of La Fustera is just 10 - 15 mins from either Moraira or Calpe, each with its own style. The youngsters in your party might enjoy the buzz of Calpe, but others may be seduced by the authentic Spanish charms of Moraira with its still bustling fish market. Known as the Millionaires' Playground, Moraira oozes style and character, and the evening promenade from Beach to Plaza to Marina (always filled with dazzling boats) shouldn't be missed. There are restaurants to suit everyone and, in daytime, a choice of two good-sized, well-kept beaches, with all the facilities you would hope for.
From Moraira it is only another 15 minutes drive to Javea, similar in character, but bigger, so there's more to watch, or 20 minutes would take you into the Jalon Valley with its spectacular mountain scenery and Bodegas for tasting the local wine. Of course you may like to visit Benidorm's Terra Mitica Theme Park or Aqualandia, or just stay at sandy Fustera Cove with its beach bars
