Inauguration of our Blue Infinity luxury apartments

We began the month of November with a party to celebrate the inauguration of Blue Infinity, our development of luxury apartments with sea views in Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort. Last Friday, we were able to enjoy this event in which the property owners had the chance to meet each other and enjoy a fantastic evening with views of the Mediterranean Sea from the Blue Infinity apartments. Attendees included owners of properties in Block A, the future property owners from Block B, friends, and part of the VAPF team, which came to 75 guests in total at the event.

The event began at 12:00pm in the Blue Infinity hall, where guests were welcomed and presented with an identification bracelet as well as a bag containing gifts, among which was an exclusive Blue Infinity polo shirt.

Shortly afterwards, the guests enjoyed a delicious welcome cocktail, with canapés and fresh ham cut by a ham carver, in the terrace and pool area of the communal zones. When it was time to eat, guests were able to enjoy a sumptuous menu without taking their eyes off Blue Infinity’s wonderful sea views.

After the meal, guests had the opportunity to enjoy a performance of Flamenco singing and dancing.

In the evening, the party then continued in the gym area which was adapted for the occasion with a DJ, cocktail bar, and a fun photocall in which guests were able to pose for photos and take them home as a special memory of the event.

During the event, our Sales and Marketing Director Vicente Mestre said a few words thanking all those who attended. On behalf of VAPF, we would like to thank all our guests again for turning the inauguration of Blue Infinity into an unforgettable day for everyone and we hope that our Blue Infinity property owners will enjoy the wonderful luxury apartments with sea views that we have created for them.

If you too would like to buy a luxury apartment on the Costa Blanca, don’t hesitate! Fill in our contact form and we’ll provide you with more information, with no obligation.

Grupo VAPF 1st Agencies Convention

On the 24th February, the first Grupo VAPF Agencies Convention was held as an opportunity to thank all those people who help us, both in Spain and on an international level, to offer our clients a home they will fall in love with.

This Grupo VAPF Agencies Convention was a complete success: attended by over 100 people from 52 estate agencies in different parts of Europe and held in the SH Villa Gadea hotel, where visitors were welcomed with a selection of VAPF materials as well as a lanyard with ID card for the event.

During the morning, Pedro Soliveres, Managing Director of Grupo VAPF, opened the convention with a speech in which he highlighted the importance of our agents as well as the changes experienced by our company over its 55 years of history. Following this, there was a workshop in which the attending agents had the opportunity to meet the sales team. These are the people who send them information about new products and follow up with clients.

The first and only Grupo VAPF Agencies Convention workshop began with Kurt Op de Beeck, our head of agencies in the sales department, who reminded the attendees about Cumbre del Sol’s strong points. He highlighted the high-quality finish of Blue Infinity and spoke of the updates from the development: in block B, all apartments have 3 bedrooms and the garages include an electric charging point.

After this, our colleagues Mari Cruz Ochando y Corina Stan presented the new product features from the Lirios area, in the Creta, Milo, Hydra, Itaca, and Siros XL models. Sylwia Kular, head of the German-Polish market, highlighted our beautiful project Lirios Sunrise, and Merche Pulpillo, head of the Spanish market, presented Magnolias for Life and Magnolias Sunset.

In the second part of the Grupo VAPF Agencies Convention workshop, our head of the Russian market, Natalia Bugaychuk, explained the characteristics and finish of our villas Villa La Mar and Villa Ifach, and Bart Stevens, our head of local agencies, talked about Villa Ibiza and Villa Mirador, a 1,700m-villa perched on a cliff.

In his presentation, our colleague Bart spoke about the products we have in Benissa Costa. Kurt returned to speak about Altea and all the advantages it offers, one of which is fibre optics. Vicente Mestre, our Sales and Marketing Director, presented our latest product: Blanc Altea, a project with unique interior architecture with large spaces and huge amounts of natural light, spiral staircases, and views of Altea’s skyline.

Then, from 15:30 to 19:30 the Grupo VAPF Agencies Convention offered attendees a short break to enjoy a spa session at the hotel or simply relax in their room.

At 19:30, event attendees returned to enjoy some live jazz music along with a magic show. During the event, prizes were awarded to the Best New Agency 2017 (Rayos de Sol), our two best sellers in 2017 (Gerard Riet from Orange Village and Kamil Kadyrzanov from Bravos Capital), to the agency with which we have been working the longest (Masa Internacional), and to the agency with the highest number of sales (Zapinvest).

After the dinner, which took place just after, our Sales and Marketing Director gave a thank you speech to all those present in which he reflected on the journey of the company as well as our present and future objectives: “Our company wouldn’t be the same without you, because all of you who are here today or have been with us in the past are what has made these 55 years of history possible. Today, we want to thank you, and we can’t think of a better way than to come together with you at this event, because you are all part of our success: our success is your success”.

Many thanks to all those who attended our first Grupo VAPF Agencies Convention. It was a true pleasure to see you, to put names to faces, and to know that we all share one objective: working for our clients.

Cumbre del Sol, land of cycling

One of the biggest events in Spain’s cycling calendar is the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, whose third stage is taking place in Poble Nou de Benitatxell. Today, the 26 teams taking part in the race will cover 23 kilometres in a team time trial from the town close to Cumbre del Sol, to Calpe.

In just a short time, the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana has managed to earn itself a prestigious reputation among the most important teams on the international stage. Reborn two years ago, the race started up again in 2016 after its last edition in 2008.

Proof of the event’s prestige is seen through the level of participation: 11 teams which belong to the World Tour category – the highest division in professional cycling. Some of the winning cyclists in the most important day tests, such as Michal Kwiatkowski (winner in Milan – San Remo), Greg Van Avermaet (winner in Paris – Roubaix and current Olympic champion), Alejandro Valverde and Wout Poels (both winners in Lieja – Bastoña – Lieja), are attending this race as a vital part of their preparation ahead of this season’s most important months. They will all be racing around the streets in Poble Nou de Benitatxell, close to Cumbre del Sol, this afternoon.

Thanks to the exceptional climate enjoyed here even in the months of December and January, numerous professional cycling teams choose the region of Alicante – and specifically the towns of Calpe, Denia, and Poble Nou de Benitatxell – for their pre-season stages. As a result, it’s not unusual to travel up to Cumbre del Sol during these months and run into the current Giro d’Italia champion team training in the area.

As a region which is often frequented by professional cyclists and bicycle tourists, Cumbre del Sol was included as Stage 9 of the Vuelta a España in 2015. This unprecedented outcome ended in the victory of Dutch Tom Dumoulin, current Giro D’Italia champion, who beat cyclists such as Chris Froome, Nairo Quintana, and Purito Rodríguez.

The organisation for the Vuelta a España was satisfied with the results of the edition, and didn’t hesitate to repeat Stage 9 in Cumbre del Sol. Last year, Chris Froome pedalled to victory after his second-place finish in 2015. A few weeks later, the British cyclist would claim the red jersey of the Vuelta a España champion.

If you love cycling, at Cumbre del Sol you will  have a privileged location where you can hone your skills in the sport. For more information about our houses, fill in our contact form. We would love to hear from you!
