Capistrano Village is a complex of villas and apartments designed along the lines of a typical Andalucían 'Pueblo Blanco' or 'White Village' and characterised by houses with red-tiled roofs, whitewashed walls, balconies, terraces and wrought ironwork.
It has well laid out, narrow streets and pathways, much of it car-free, making it ideal for families with small children.
The main access road goes around the outside of the complex and there is ample parking, most of the central area being closed to vehicles.
Facilities include a bar, restaurant, laundrette, sauna, ATM and three swimming pools. One of the pools is particularly suited to young children and lifeguards are on duty during the main holiday periods.
Just outside the village is a tennis club, complete with restaurant, and a little further down the road, the N-340, is a large Supersol supermarket.
Burriana beach is the nearest beach to Capistrano village, about 1.5 kilometres away, but if you decide to walk then bear in mind that the return leg of the journey is uphill all the way and some of the hills are very steep indeed!
The distance to the centre of town, Balcón de Europa, is about 3 kilometres. There are buses to get you into town or, alternatively, you can take a taxi, the fare being very reasonable.
