Racó de Galeno: when architecture meets nature

Unlike most cities and municipal districts, the Costa Blanca Norte horizon is framed by a unique coastline with seemingly endless kilometres of beaches, sandy coves and countryside to discover. In the heart of this natural paradise, close to the town of Benissa, you’ll find Racó de Galeno. A group of villas where the blue of the sea contrasts with the greenest surroundings, and it will be love at first sight.

Today we’d like to tell you about VAPF’s Neva and Lena villas. Two projects which are a perfect example of how it’s possible to create homes that adapt to and respect the environment, where living amidst nature is a true luxury.

 

Villa Neva: a blend of wood, concrete and stone

These three components combine in perfect architectural harmony. Nature permeates this 947m2 home through its huge plate glass windows which visually duplicate the space, with the Mediterranean light as its biggest ally, and they manage to achieve a seamless combination of indoors and outdoors.

If the villa is impressive at first glance, you will be doubly captivated when you stop to take in the numerous details everywhere in the house interior with its decorative wall coverings and panelling that create a different ambience in every room. Not to mention the lighting that brings heat and comfort in equal measure, and the rooms with ceilings at double height that give a sense of greater space … And what could be better than to connect nature and the interior architecture with the glass walls that join the porch and the sitting room?

Villa Lena: for nature lovers

In an ideal location, where every day you can enjoy views of the Peñón de Ifach and the Mediterranean Sea, you can find Villa Lena. A villa designed with a very specific public in mind, namely nature lovers.

Lena has a modern design and clean lines, however, there is no question that what marks it out in terms of aesthetics and functionality is its carefully considered distribution. The villa is arranged in such a way that it emphasises the connection between indoors and outdoors through the distribution of the concealed glass windows that create spaces filled with light enhancing their enjoyment.

The interior is distributed in two wings, one with three double bedrooms (all with en suite bathrooms) and the other part with rooms for communal use, a large kitchen, living room dining room and guest W.C.

 

What do they have in common?

Both villas blend with the environment as they have been designed and constructed mainly from wood and stone. Furthermore, their enormous windows and glass walls serve as a balcony that looks out onto the Mediterranean, as from both Villa Neva and Villa Lena, you can enjoy the best views of the sea and of Peñón de Ifach. It’s the nearest thing to living in a picture postcard. The proximity of natural beauty spots such as the beaches of la Fustera, Cala Baladrar and Cala de la Llobella, is also something to take into account if you are thinking of living in Racó de Galeno. Visit, and enjoy them all along the three kilometres of the Benissa Ecology Trail.

Although Villa Neva and Villa Lena are surrounded by nature, nevertheless they are not isolated, but really well communicated with Calpe and Benissa, and in just a few minutes you can be in the centre of either town, and enjoy another side of the Costa Blanca: its urban areas with an enviable array of entertainment, culture and cuisine. Can you actually find a reason why it wouldn’t be worth starting a new life in one of these villas? Follow our upcoming articles where you can discover much about Cumbre del Sol’s surroundings.

Villa Tempo: welcoming and bright in equal measure

Our Clients Come First. After-Sales Services

Our homes exude exclusivity and quality in each square metre. These features go much beyond selecting top quality materials, from avantgarde yet functional architecture with clean lines, and the superb locations where our projects and developments can be found.

A fundamental pillar of VAPF philosophy and what has turned us into a leader in North Costa Blanca has always been our relationship with our clients. Our clients being satisfied and comfortable is one of our priorities throughout the whole sales process, from start to finish. This mentality is based on and can be summarised in one simple sentence: Our clients come first.

Our clients are always accompanied and advised with the honesty and professionalism that defines us throughout the whole sales process. From the first day of construction to the very last, where we deliver a complete home ready to live in. How do we do this? Offering personalised care throughout each stage of construction and showing the home’s progress using our Extranet, so that the client can see the current development at any moment. After this, once the keys are handed over, we’ll continue to be by the client’s side, helping them with what we can: document management, enrolling children in school…

After handing over the keys, we continue to offer our clients a complete after-sales service to guarantee that they’re fully satisfied and that they always enjoy their new life in the Costa Blanca.

 

Before delivering the keys

We want to your new home to be perfect. That’s why before officially handing over the keys, the technician in charge of the home will visit to revise and check all of the rooms, installations, and household appliances thoroughly one by one, assuring that everything is working properly.

 

The Big Day

We provide you with one night’s accommodation to make your trip as comfortable as possible. On the day of handing over the keys, all useful information will be handed over to you too, as well as any other aspects needed for you to adapt as soon as possible to your new life:

  • Instruction manual for the home and/or swimming pool.
  • Manuals for electrical appliances and their corresponding guarantee certificates.
  • Keys to the mailbox and the shed in which they are located.
  • Emergency telephone operating manual for possible problems with electricity, water or gas.
  • List of useful telephone numbers and TV channels.
  • For apartments: statutes of the community, details of the president and administrator of the community.
  • Contact and location of the notary’s office.

In addition to signing all the documentation for the direct debiting of taxes and services for your property, we take care of the management.

 

Other after-sales services

 

Key safekeeping

VAPF offers you a free key safekeeping service which consists of us keeping a copy of the keys so that, in the event of an emergency, and if you are unable to go to the property, we can come to your place. If you travel to Spain and you realise that you have left your keys behind in your country, we will keep a copy so that you can enter your home without any difficulty.

For your maximum satisfaction and peace of mind, the safekeeping service includes a history of who has had them at any given time.

 

Free one-year insurance

We will also give you and deliver the contract of an insurance policy for the building for a whole year.

 

We manage the services of your new home

So that you don’t have to worry, we will also take care of your electricity and water bills. We’ll also offer you the possibility of contracting the telephone and/or internet service. We’ll explain everything to you: what the service offers, fees, rates, calls… And, if you want to think about it in your time, we will leave you a brochure with all the updated information.

On the same day, the property will be checked again with you and an employee from the VAPF after-sales department. They will check that all these aspects are in order:

  • Electrical supply and appliances
  • Plumbing
  • Furnishings
  • Paintwork
  • Heating and air conditioning in all rooms.
  • Gas
  • Home domotics
  • Apps
  • Sonos
  • Video surveillance

Take your time, if you notice any damage, it’s important that you let us know. An inspection visit will take place a few days later to deal with these issues and resolve them.

As we’ve said in this article, and as demonstrated throughout these 59 years of creating homes, we accompany and advise our clients throughout the entire process. After handing over the keys, you’ll have a VAPF contact person to discuss any type of problem or query related to your home.

Our clients can testify to this. If you want to know their testimonials you can see them on our website.

Villa Lena is a truly luxurious representative of what Racó de Galeno has to offer.

This care put into the interior design and layout carries through to the villa’s outside spaces, through the choice of elements inspired by wood. Also with planters, and with a glass wall in the swimming pool that communicates you directly with the sea. Details that invite you to live and enjoy the nature and peace that Racó de Galeno exudes.

A total of 74 blue flag beaches in the Costa Blanca

We’re at that part in the year where we’re counting down the days to summer. Our body and mind knows it (and needs it). In fact, some people are one step ahead of bathing season, and many of them have chosen beaches in the Costa Blanca North.

The beaches with the blue flag distinction for this year 2022 have been announced. And, among the over 200km of beach in the Costa Blanca, there’s a good number of local representatives on this exclusive list. More specifically, there’s no more and no less than 74 blue flag beaches in the whole province of Alicante.

But before all else, what does this distinction mean? A blue flag is, above all else, a symbol of quality. To get one, a beach needs to meet certain criteria that are organised into 4 different blocks:

  • Environmental information and education.
  • Water quality.
  • Environment management
  • Safety and services.

The province of Alicante is always at the top of this list guaranteeing the quality of its coast. The secret? Because of the consistent effort from its towns to keep this honour, year after year. Want to discover the beaches that are here in Costa Blanca North? Well, keep reading whilst we add more place to your list to visit this summer!

Costa Blanca North, the blue flag cradle

Let’s start with one of the main fixtures on the list. Cala Moraig, in Benitachell, is one of the most well known beaches year after year and earning a blue flag each time. And of course, 2022 is no exception! Cala Moraig is a paradisical cove in Alicante. Turquoise blue waters flanked by cliffs that dominate this unique setting.

If we follow on to Teulada, there are 3 more beautiful beaches like El Portet, L’Ampolla and Les Platgetes. There’s also another place where you can enjoy a spectacular dip in a more secluded setting like in Cala Fustera. This little corner can be found in Benissa.

The city of Calpe also has several blue flag beaches. As well as enjoying its cuisine, you will also do so if you drop by La Fossa, Cantal Roig or Arenal Bol.  If you feel like heading north, you are spoilt for choice. In Denia, there are Les Bovetes, Les Marines, Marineta Casiana, Molins, Les Deveses and Punta Raxet. And in Jávea L’Arenal, La Grava and La Granadella. A visit to the latter is a must, especially: a beautiful paradise of turquoise and emerald tones. A bay of calm waters and incredible transparency.

Another must on your route to blue flag beaches is Altea. The Dome of the Mediterranean keeps its three famous beaches on this list: Cap Blanc, L’Espigó and La Roda.

Here is a small guide to the best beaches in the municipalities of the Costa Blanca North. And, if you feel like exploring further, you can check out all the Blue Flag beaches in Alicante in this article.
