A large group of us (8+) are planning a trip to the costa blanca over the Christmas break. I'm just looking for any accommodation recommendations? We initially thought about staying in the Orange house but that looks pretty expensive when compared to renting a large villa! Cheap and cheerful is good and obviously close proximity to climbing is preferred.

In reply to JRae: Angela and Martin Harrison-Smith have the Casa Blava (only sleeps 5). However a few years ago 6 of us stayed at the larger Casa Mes Avall - I think there was space for more.
I had a quick look on their website and can't find the larger house - maybe they don't have it anymore?


Either way it's worth contacting them, they are really helpful and I'm sure they'll have a recommendation even if they don't have anything suitable

Go on owners direct as they have some great cheap villas, can be a bargain for 8 of you.

You might not get:-

free wifi
free miniguides
bouldering wall
christmas party
great atmospere with some amazing other climbers
real fire at night to chill around
great local knowledge
climbing videos in the bar
and more....

Quite a selection here:


Usefully they are scattered the full length of the Blanca if you are interested in areas other than the classic Calpe/Toix/Sella region.

There's also Casa Roc http://www.casaroc.com/ in Sella village, and there's a refugio down in the Sella Gorge right by the start of the climbing (I don't have any info on that)

In reply to Derby Grit:

I dont think the refugio is open this year officially, hasnt been for a while now...

Also re Sella, the road from Finestrat is closed so the journey up and down will take a little longer if you visit other crags etc.

I would recommend coming to Chulilla! It's a perfect place for climbing.
I put some information on my website - http://valenciaclimb.com -> CLIMBING -> Chulilla
There is a really nice Refuge here - http://www.elaltico.com/
And you can also find some appartments.
Check out the rest of my website maybe You are interested ;)
And If you need some help with accommodation here on place or in spanish I can do it for you.

In reply to JRae: Just back from a place called finepark, 10mins from benidorm/finestrat. They had a large house for groups which looked good. Location is great ...very quiet.
