Casa Calleja is situated next to La Cueva de las Calaveras (Cave of Skulls), nestling in the mountains of the Marina Alta region of the Costa Blanca, overlooking olive trees and orange groves,1 km from the pretty village of Benidoleig, with a supermarket, chemist, bank, garage and restaurants.
15km of sandy beach are just a 15 minute drive away, and the ‘Marina’ shopping mall, and junction with the main AP-7 highway are just a 10 minute drive. Alicante airport 1hr. Valencia airport/mainline railway 1¼ hr. The World Health Organisation promote this area to be in the top three best climates in the world. This, and the uncommercialised nature of the area, make it a wonderful place to live.
Casa Calleja is a unique and unusual property, designed and built in the late 60’s for Eladio Calleja, artist, sculptor and musician. With influences by Cesar Manrique, Gaudi and his own vision, the house – in the shape of a guitar - is both contemporary and rustic, flowing across the rocks on which it is built.
