VAPF Group, builder and developer of Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort, is partnering with We Are Talent Events to sponsor the first professional sporting event in Spain during the COVID-19 crisis. Named the Region of Valencia Tennis Challenge, it will take place during the first weekend of June.
For the event to take place, VAPF has offered up its Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol sports facilities. Cumbre del Sol is an impressive natural enclave on the Mediterranean Sea where most of our large real estate offer is concentrated, thanks to the 3.7 million square metres of land located along the unspoilt coastline.
The Region of Valencia Tennis Challenge consists of bringing together four TOP-100 tennis players from the ATP circuit to play two matches a day in a round-robin format. Matches will be played as best-of-three sets and the third will be a tiebreaker if necessary. The event will begin on Friday, June 5 and end on Sunday, June 7. All matches will be held behind closed doors to ensure compliance with current safety regulations. In addition, players live in the area and all health requirements set by the government will be strictly adhered to.
The goal is to bring people together safely to enjoy the sport while also contributing to a good cause. Once the event is over, all donations and money raised through auctioning the player’s equipment will go towards helping Spanish victims of the coronavirus crisis. The event will also be environmentally friendly, so we can take care of the planet as well as those in need.
The event will be broadcast both nationally and internationally and will also be available worldwide on different streaming platforms. There will be live commentary in both Spanish and English and broadcasting will begin the moment the players step on the court until the moment they walk out. To maximize the event’s reach, free viewing has been agreed upon for all major national and international broadcasters and digital platforms, including:
- Spain: GOL
- Portugal: Sport TV
- Latin America: ESPN
- United States: TennisChannel
- Australia: Australian Open, Youtube, Nine’s Wide World of Sports

Last Saturday, February 22nd, VAPF celebrated their agencies convention for the third consecutive year. This exclusive event brought together many real estate professionals who work alongside VAPF, with the objective of showing them all the latest developments and new locations planned for 2020.
More than 130 national and international guests gathered at the event, which was celebrated in the five-star Hotel Marriott La Sella in Denia, to spend the day that was divided into two parts.
The event commenced at the hotel, where guests were given their accreditation cards before being welcomed with breakfast. Afterward, everyone headed to the International Lady Elizabeth School for the workshop, which was introduced by the Marketing and Commercial Director, Vicente Mestre.
The newest developments planned for 2020 were presented at the workshop. The upcoming market launch of the Novamar Suites 2 and the new villa projects in the well-established and familiar Residential Resort Cumbre del Sol are worth highlighting. Other locations will also have new developments, such as Racó de Galeno in Benissa, Azure Altea Homes 2 and Blanc Altea Homes, both in Altea, and the La Sella Apartments in Denia.
Once the first half of the workshop was finished, the agents were able to walk around the school and tour Cumbre del Sol where they got to see some of the most recently built homes. Afterward, everyone returned to the Hotel Marriott La Sella, where the morning session came to a close with lunch.
The second part of the day started with a welcoming drink at the Gala Banquet Hall, where all the guests gathered before dinner. At dinner, the guests were entertained by a grand musical and acrobatic show. Vicente Mestre ended the evening by thanking all the agents for their attendance and starting the awards ceremony, with which VAPF aimed to reward the efforts of its agents. These were the winners:
2019 Agency with the Most Sales – Medland Spain
2019 Most Efficient Agency – Seanest – Jan Van Parijs Properties
2019 Best Local Agency – Atina Inmobiliaria
2019 Nobel Agency – Vamos Immo
VAPF’s objective with these events is to strengthen our relationship with our agents. VAPF wants to once again thank everyone who attended the event for being part of our team and for helping make our clients’ dreams come true.
If you follow our blog and know our philosophy, then you’ve probably already heard us mention our motto: “Our Clients Come First”. This motto is clear, and it’s why we’ve spent more than 56 years not only offering dream homes in an idyllic setting, but also offering the best services and the finest customer service. However, it wouldn’t be right to speak about the company’s success without mentioning one of our most important pillars: our real estate agents.
The role of the real estate agent is fundamental. They’re not only the ones who inform the clients about the features of their home and surroundings but also accompanies them throughout a large part of the purchasing process. Which is why we love working hand in hand with these professionals and we’re offering them a series of benefits with a new motto: “Our Agents Come First”. Some of the benefits worth highlighting are a 100% commission when a client makes their first payment; an online platform to quickly check which homes are available and their prices; a large product portfolio; bonuses according to which homes they’ve sold; a post-contract service which takes over communications with the client once they’ve signed off on the final paperwork for their home; access to advertising/marketing/publishing material; assistance during meetings thanks to the support of a sales representative; exclusivity (we don’t accept meetings from the same client with two different agents); assistance in finding homes for specific clients; and periodic training meetups centred around our services and products.
One of those gatherings took place on the 15th of January at a Workshop at the Doña Monse hotel in Torrevieja. A total of 51 agencies and more than 120 real estate agents from the south of Alicante and the north of Murcia gathered at this event. During the event, we familiarised everyone with the Cumbre del Sol website, our apartments in Montecala Gardens, Novamar Suites, as well as the latest Blue Infinity models. We also showcased our villas: Lirios Design, Lirios Sunrise, and the villas in the Jazmines Residential Area. In addition to this, we also featured our developments in Altea (Blanc Altea Homes and Azure Altea Homes) and Benissa (Racó de Galeno).
Another focal point of the event was “Our Clients Come First”, a programme centred around giving clients and homeowners all the tools and services we have available to ensure their comfort during the purchase of their new home. We also can’t forget about our company’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, which shows our commitment to social and environmental well-being, two values we like to transmit to all of our agents. Lastly, the event ended with a coffee break where everyone involved could share their opinions.
We at VAPF want to thank everyone who assisted for their labour and for working alongside us towards a shared goal: making our clients’ dreams come true.

At VAPF, we believe in promoting sports on the Costa Blanca and this year, we are proud to be one of the sponsors of the 1st Edition of the Colosos del Mediterraneo event! This will be a deep-sea fishing and recreational event, organized by the Moraira Yacht Club in collaboration with the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (I.E.O). It will take place in Moraira, from the 28th through the 1st of June. Note that it isn’t considered a competition, but instead an opportunity to join some of the best fisherman across the world and the biggest fish in the Mediterranean. The main idea is to give attendees the opportunity to enjoy recreational fishing as well as exchange their knowledge and experience with one another.
The Spanish Institute of Oceanography is collaborating with the organization of the event, which will follow a catch and release chumming model by boat anchoring or drifting. The event will kick off next Tuesday, May 28th, with a round of tuna fish marking, these fish being the main protagonists of the event.
The next day will begin with a reception for the attendees with registration and check-in, delivery of clothes and supply bags. Throughout the afternoon, they will be distributing labels and ID tags. At night, after a captains’ meeting, there will be a cocktail party for the participants. Thursday, May 30th, will be the official training day for attendees to practice chumming.
Friday and Saturday will be the most intensive days of the Colosos del Mediterraneo event. Everything will kick off those days at 6:00 in the morning, with breakfast and check-in. The boats will be out until about 17:30, at which time they will return to the Moraira marina. Once the two days of fishing wrap up, the panel will review the videos taken during those days and the scores. On Saturday, there will be a closing ceremony at 21:00, and everyone will partake in a special dinner. Trophies and prizes will also be presented at the dinner at the Club Restaurant.
We sure hope to see you on the 28th of May and the 1st of June for the Colosos del Mediterraneo event in the Moraira marina!
After such a successful event last year, we decided to celebrate the second edition of the Day of the Tree at Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort once more! This event took place on May 21st. In this second edition, we collaborated again with the international Lady Elizabeth School, this year, working specifically with students from YEAR 1, between the ages of 5 and 6. The students were accompanied by school teachers, members of the town council of Poble Nou de Benitatxell, VAPF employees, and all the neighbours at Cumbre del Sol that were interested in joining this activity in which we planted 150 pine trees together.
At VAPF, we know how important it is to develop initiatives to protect the environment. We work continuously to make sure we do our part to look after the unique and natural enclave where we live. Therefore, this initiative forms part of our corporate social responsibility, in which we aim to repopulate the green areas of Cumbre del Sol and raise awareness among younger generations. We hope to teach them the importance of respecting nature and looking after the environment.
Day of the Tree activities began at 9:00 in the morning after picking up the students and taking them to the area where the trees were being planted on a nearby plot of land given by the Poble Nou de Benitatxell Town Hall. Upon arrival, Jorge Pascual, the Education and Environment Councillor, welcomed them and Vicente Mestre, the Commercial and Marketing Director of the VAPF Group, thanked everyone for their participation and highlighted the importance of these initiatives in a natural environment such as the one that surrounded Cumbre del Sol. Next, the process of planting the trees was explained to the attendees and they went to work together as a team.
VAPF made the most of the occasion and provided all the necessary material for planting, including the trees and the gardening materials that they would need. The students of the Lady Elizabeth school were given a pack that included a backpack, a cap, water and a surprise planting kit to encourage them to plant a tree at home. This was a small way to thank them for their assistance and collaboration on such a special day for us.
After this fun day, the event ended at 11:30 and the students were given a ride back to the school.
At VAPF, we are proud of this initiative and hope to turn it into an annual tradition. Our goal is that all those who form part of the Cumbre del Sol Residential Resort community participate actively and continue working together to protect the environment.
