Camino Merle

groceries – at the bottom of the street are two large supermarkets, Consum and Lidl. Both open Monday to Saturday from 9:00 AM to 9:30 PM.  During the high season Consum is also open on Sundays.

Outside the high season only Supermercado Troya is open on Sundays (also Tabaco) and at this gas station there is a small shop where chips, beer etc. are sold.

There are two restaurants within walking distance of the house

  • Bar El Campus – nice cozy terrace, tasty sandwiches, tapas, burgers and ice creams.
  • Folixa Asador Sidreria – a mecca for the meat lover; lots of good meat. Truly traditional Spanish in terms of decor; TV is always on and fluorescent light.

waste – there is a waste collection point on the corner of the street, towards Bar El Campus. You can dispose of your residual waste in the green containers. There is a glass container, there is a yellow container for plastic bottles and a blue container for cardboard / paper. No waste is collected.

airports – if you come by plane you can fly to either Alicante or Valencia. From both airports it is about a 1 hour and 15 minutes drive to Casa Merle 26.
