More than a rock climbing holiday

 

Our family climbing holidays offer a range of exciting activities to suit everybody's interests and ability. Such activities include:

- Single pitch rock climbing

- Multi pitch rock climbing

- Trekking & walking

- Abseiling

- Via Ferrata

- Kayaking

 

Depending on the age of the children, we can offer a different program for the week.

Please find below two example itineraries for family climbing holidays; one with young children and one with older children.

 

Family Climbing Holiday - Children <8 years

An example of what a week might include:

 

- Saturday Arrival day: relax and hang out by the pool or go to one of Calpe's beaches.

 

- Sunday Two half-day sessions of single pitch rock climbing with a guide. For young children a whole day at the crag might be a bit too much. After the morning session at the crag we'll come back to the villa for a siësta. We'll go climbing again in the afternoon. Having two sessions a day also allows you to take turns in taking care of the youngest ones. When at the crag, we could put topropes up and let everyone enjoy the climbing, we could coach and improve your climbing technique, or we could teach you how to lead climb.

 

- Monday Two half-day sessions of single pitch rock climbing with a guide.

 

- Tuesday Rest day. Have some family time in and around the villa, enjoy Calpe's beautiful beaches or go out for a family activity. There are many water parks, adventure parks and attraction parks in the Costa Blanca.

 

- Wednesday Two half-day sessions of single pitch rock climbing with a guide.

 

- Thursday One half-day session of single pitch rock climbing with a guide. A walk up the Penon de Ifach (332m), Costa Blanca's most striking landmark.

 

- Friday One half-day session of single pitch rock climbing with a guide.

 

- Saturday Departure day.

Villa with swimming pool

 

You will be staying in a beautiful, fully equipped and spacious villa with swimming pool just a five minute walk from the typical Spanish village Parcent, in the Xalon Valley. The Xalon Valley is just inland from Benissa and the villa is about 30 minutes from the town and coast of Calpe. The Xalon valley is famous for its high quality wines - you will be surrounded by vineyards, as well as olive trees, orange groves and almond groves. Parcent has a range of bars and restaurants (among which the best Paella restaurant in the area!), a minimarket, bakery and pharmacy, all within walking distance of the villa.

 

The modern villa has a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a beautiful garden with different seating areas and an outside BBQ. Its fully fitted kitchen, lounge and dining area have the character of an original Spanish farmhouse. There is WiFi in the villa. For photos, click on the Accommodation tab above.
