The space
This apartment is in 'Xanadú' building that was built by Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill in the 1960s in the town of Calpe, in the province of Alicante, Spain. It is a beachfront three storey apartment, the top flat of the building, with breathtaking views of the coast and overlooking the sea from every window. The lower floor has the kitchen, one dining room, one bedroom, and one bathroom. The first floor has a living room and two bedrooms. The house has room for a family with three children, as there is a double bed downstairs and three beds in the bedrooms on the first floor. The terrace above is 36 m2 wide which permits enjoying breakfast and lunch, even if possibly the best time in the terrace is at night, during dinner, listening to the sound of the sea waves.
The beach in Calpe belongs to the so-called 'Costa Blanca', which goes through Jávea, Moraira, Calpe, Altea, L'Alfàs del Pi and Benidorm. It is characterized by having both rocky and sandy beaches and transparent sea waters. Calpe is a picturesque seaside village full of a variety of shops and restaurants.
'Xanadú' is right next to another two buildings also built by Ricardo Bofill: the so-called 'Muralla Roja' and the 'Anfiteatro'. The first was famous not only for its architecture, but also for being home to the 60s guitar player Jimmy Hendrix, who actually dedicated his song 'Castle made of sand' to 'Xanadú'. Back in those years, the beach right below Bofill's apartments was frequented by Janis Joplin, Hendrix and other hippy friends!
If you like a beach holiday, this is ideal for you: there is a rocky beach right below the apartment and a ten minute walk leads you to a splendid sandy beach, one of the best in la Costa Blanca.

El apartamento tiene una cama de matrimonio y tres individuales repartidas en dos dormitorios y un reservado en el salón del piso superior, al lado de la chimenea. Se encuentra en primerísima línea de playa. Hay una escalera a unos metros de la entrada del edificio que lleva a una cala de roca poco transitada ideal para practicar submarinismo. Hay elementos de playa a disposición de los huéspedes.

Where you’ll be

Calp, Comunidad Valenciana, Spain

El edificio Xanadú de Calpe es una de las tres construcciones que diseñó Ricardo Bofill a finales de los 60. A los pies del edificio, junto al mar, hubo un restaurant chill out, uno de los primeros que hubo en España, donde estuvieron Janis Joplin y Jimi Hendrix. Se dice que este último creó una canción tras ver el edificio: 'Castle made of sand'. En la comunidad inglesa de Calpe existe la idea de que The Beatles estuvieron en el ático del edificio Xanadú, algo que no hemos podido confirmar hasta la fecha.
