I am very fortunate to have a holiday property in Campoverde. You can enjoy a relaxing holiday here and there are lots of places nearby to enjoy too. There is a real village atmosphere and when I go over I always get the local newsletter and free newspapers to find out what’s going on locally and beyond during our stay.  This includes social events e.g. hog roasts and quizzes and sporting events e.g. walking and golf.

Neighbours are wonderful at letting you know the most recent changes and giving you recommendations and directions of where to visit. The prices of food and entertainment are reasonable as they are aimed at local residents rather than tourists.

If my friends or family visit they always come back and say “How did you manage to find such an ideal spot? We absolutely loved it” I do too. It’s not a place that many people have their first Spanish property as it’s not well known but I am really glad I do have. Writing this piece has made me long to return again soon. Enjoy!
