Carmen del Campillo Tea House
The city of Torrevieja enjoys its fair share of peaceful places where you can relax and enjoy nature at its finest. Being a coastal location, there are many small coves and bays where you can get away from the crowds, and throughout the city there are parks and plazas offering shade and solitude among their plants and trees. The nearby salt lakes and natural reserve entice visitors with lovely views and interesting flora & fauna, including statue like flamingos. Indeed, you don’t need to go far to find a special place, but for an almost spiritual experience, the spell binding Carmen del Campillo Tea House awaits.
Greeted by the call of the resident peacocks, when you enter the tea house gate you are transported to a scene from Arabian Nights, and many choose to visit during the cooler evenings. The stone walkways are lined with candles and lamps, and the secret courtyards and terraces scattered with comfortable cushions and blankets. As you wander through the beautiful gardens, making your way past bubbling fountains and lush rockery’s the air is filled with the smell of wild flowers and the sound of chirping crickets.
Peace and Tranquillity
Such is the layout of this charming villa, it’s hard to determine where the gardens end and the interior begins. There are secluded nooks and crannies, balconies adorned with intricately woven Persian rugs, and grand sitting rooms speckled in colourful light from their stained glass windows. Wherever you choose to relax, attentive staff are on hand to explain what delights are on the menu. Pastries and sweet treats are accompanied by a lovely selection of tea’s and coffee, as well as a choice of milkshakes and cold drinks. No matter what time of day you visit, Carmen del Campillo Tea House is an enchanting oasis of peace and tranquillity.
