Pinar de Campoverde is an established Spanish village set on a wooded hillside, 8 km inland with views to the Mediterranean. It is less crowded than the more developed areas towards Torrevieja, with mainly large detached homes and year-round residents, many of who are British or German.
In the commercial centre of Campoverde there are several bars, restaurants, supermarkets, bank etc. There is a small street market on Sunday mornings. On the other side of the village is the famous Natural Area “Rio Seca” where you can walk along the (usually dry!) bed of the river, which has carved a spectacular gorge. Near Rio Seca there is also a new 20,000m2 sports area with several tennis courts, basketball, football and a large public swimming pool.
The nearest town is Pilar de la Horadada, where you can join the new A-37 Alicante-Cartegena Autoroute or access the beaches of the Mediterranean. There are about 4kms of sandy beaches stretching from El Mojon to Mil Palmeras, including a small, pretty cove at Torre de la Horadada where there is also a Marina. This is only 15 minute drive away.
