Barely inland from the stunning Costa Blanca coastline, Campoverde is ideally placed to explore the surrounding countryside. Set on a hillside, surrounded by pine trees and orange and lemon groves – you will catch glimpses of the blue waters of the Mediterranean wherever you go in Campoverde. It’s only around 8 kilometres to the beach – 10 minutes in the car. And what a choice of beaches! Venture to the south and you have the exciting resorts and beaches surrounding the Mar Menor, including all the facilities of La Manga – just a little to the north and you are on the Orihuela Costa with the award-winning Blue Flag beaches of Cabo Roig, La Zenia, Playa Flamenca and Punta Prima. As you explore the location, you will soon find your own favourite beaches – even on this popular coastline it’s still possible to find pretty little coves and long stretches of white sand, that you can often have entirely to yourself.
Pinar de Campoverde itself is a peaceful town, not overdeveloped, and it’s not hard to see why so many British and German people have chosen to buy homes here. There are all the facilities you need for everyday living: supermarkets, banks, bars and restaurants, shops, and a small street market on Sunday mornings.
The new urbanisation has been carefully planned and has not destroyed the character of ‘old’ Campoverde – where the public swimming pool in the town square still attracts plenty of people wanting to cool off on a hot day. If you a wider range of shops, the larger town of Pilar de la Horadada is only five minutes away by car. Many of the properties HomeEspana has for sale here are detached villas, but we also have apartments, and, occasionally, plots of land for development. There’s a good variety of property available: from the top end luxury Costa Blanca villas on the new urbanisation to more established resle villas, often with wonderful gardens, in the old part of town.
On one side of the village is the well-known geographical feature of the Rio Seca. This spectacular gorge was once a fast flowing river – you can walk along the dried up river-bed and enjoy the sights of the Rio Seca Nature Reserve. There are walks here to suit everyone – from a gentle amble, to a more challenging hike. The landscape is amazing – a twisting maze of dried up streams meander through yellow sandstone cliffs. Near to Rio Seca is a fantastic new sports centre with numerous tennis and basketball courts, football pitches, and a large public swimming pool.
