A lovely weekend in Finestrat

What a lovely weekend with Rustic Escapes! Naturally I was on the hunt for witnessing more countryside traditions and enjoyed watching a local harvesting his olive crop, in traditional fashion; with a long stick and a net below the beautiful olive green tree. However, the highspot of the weekend, some will be interested to know, was a sunset walk in Benidorm. It does have the most amazingly long beach and by this time of the year is beautifully peaceful; the seafront promenade and sunset were enchanting. Finestrat, our nearby Rustic Escape, offers fabulous contrasts for a long weekend stay. Only 30 minutes from Alicante airport; high up in its little mountain village, with its rambling cobble stone streets; perched at the top, stylish yet traditional, with fabulous 360º views over the magnificent Puigcampana mountain and the surrounding hills and only a stone´s throw from the beautiful bay of Finestrat cala. The seaviews were beautiful on Saturday; the waves crashing in, their brilliant crests white in the sunlight. Paradise! A lovely weekend in Finestrat!

¡Un maravilloso finde en Finestrat con Rustic Escapes! Como de costumbre yo buscaba actividades tradicionales agrícolas; encontrando a un granjero quien recolectaba sus olivas de forma tradicional, con su palo y una red extendida bajo el precioso olivo verde. Debo decir, sin embargo, que lo más espectacular del fin de semana, algo que quizás sorprenda a algunos, fuera un paseo al atardecer por Benidorm. A estas alturas del año está tranquilo y tiene una playa y un paseo larguísimos. Era preciosa la tarde de sábado. Nuestra Rustic Escape de Finestrat ofrece tantos contrastes: a sólo 30 minutos del aeropuerto de Alicante, en lo más alto de este pueblo montañés, con sus calles históricas y encantadoras; disfrutando de vistas de 360º de la magnífica montaña de Puigcampana y con la playa de la cala de Finestrat a solo cinco minutos. Es fabuloso para un largo fin de semana. El Sabado disfrute haciendo fotos de la playa cercana de Calpe, con sus crestas blancas brillantes en el sol del mediodía. Paraíso!
