Family Climbing Holiday - Sample Itinerary

 

Saturday Arrival day.

 

After arriving at the villa and having settled in, the kids will probably want to jump in the pool straight away. Meanwhile you can relax in the sun overlooking the beautiful hills surrounding the villa. Because supermarkets are closed on Sundays we would recommend to do some groceries this afternoon or evening.

 

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday Single Pitch Rock Climbing.

 

From experience we know that for families a whole day at the crag can be a bit too much. When the children get tired or loose their interest it is best to leave the crag and go back to the villa or go to the beach. Therefore we will provide families (minimum size 4 people) with their own climbing guide. This allows him/her to organise the climbing days completely around your family's time schedule, experience levels and climbing ambitions.

 

For some families this means that the day will be split up in two sessions: After the morning session at the crag we'll come back to the villa for a siësta and then 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.

 

Other families choose to do mornings of climbing and afternoons of relaxing, beach, water activities or sightseeing.

 

When at the crag, again, we will adjust the activities to your needs. Depending on your experience level and what you want to get out of the week, we could put topropes up and let everyone enjoy the climbing, we could coach and improve your climbing technique, we could teach you how to lead climb, or we could improve your climbing safety skills. With Rock & Sun you will always be in the safe hands of one of our MIA qualified instructors

 

Wednesday Rest day.

 

After three days of climbing, today it is time for something different. This morning you won't need to get up and get everyone organised for the day. There is time to relax in and around the villa, wander into Parcent with its typical Spanish narrow windy streets, a bakery, church and square, or enjoy one of Denia's or Calpe's beautiful beaches. Also, there are many water parks, adventure parks and attraction parks in the Costa Blanca. Or, for a more cultural experience, explore the beautiful historic centre of Denia with its castle and cathedral -- and many tapas bars.

 

Thursday, Friday Single Pitch Rock Climbing.

 

Saturday Departure day.

 

Villa with swimming pool

 

Rock & Sun has 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. We accommodate families in this villa, if the youngest child is 7 years. The villa might be shared with other Rock & Sun guests. If you prefer to guarantee to have your own accommodation as a family, then we can make some suggestions on where to find the best villas.

 

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 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.
