I would like to dedicate this article to the promotion of El Campello which is a quaint little fishing village near Alicante and you will find out just what makes Campello such a popular holiday destination with British tourist. I have been living here for 21 years and I can assure you that this lifestyle is unbeatable and in part due to it’s proximity to the UK.
As you can see that is lot of fun to be had by the sea which is clean and you can normally pick out a good spot on the beach by the “Brisa bar” or if you’ve got kids there is a fun pirate playing area up by the harbour side. There are also beaches for people that are wheel-chair bound and on the whole Campello is too, although certain improvements need to be made.
The great thing about Campello is that you can either live amongst the friendly locals or you can become part of the ex-pat community who are also as friendly. I personally do a bit of both having the advantage of being bilingual, so I like to get to know the locals and share some of our traditions with them.
Anyway the point I’m making is that I am part of the community of El Campello and I would only give you honest advice for any matter on living is this area of Alicante or also on general matters that would concern living anywhere in Spain.
The life style in El Campello is unbeatable and you will soon settle down here and feel part of the community. There are English food shops, Churches, social clubs and a whole range of activities to do at the English Speaking Club. On the one hand, it is like being back at home if that is what you are looking for, but you can easily avoid all that and just mingle in with the locals of El Campello.
I should really highlight the weather which is on the whole mild all year round. A bit too hot in the Summer but most modern apartments come with air conditioning or you can just chill out on the stretch of sandy beach that El Campello really takes care of.
