CARMEN DEL CAMPILLO: A HIDDEN MOORISH TEA HOUSE.


Carmen del Campillo is a charming and unusual tea house, located about 15 kms from Elche, between Crevillente and Albatera, in the midddle of nowhere. The place is a labyrinthine big old house of Moorish style, surrounded by fountains and dense gardens, iluminated by lanterns and candles at night.



It´s necessary to say that is pretty hard to arrive if its your first visit. It´s absolutely essential to prepare the route, if you don´t want to get lost, and drive before the sundown.

The GPS coordinates are
 38.222414, -0.848973, but I recommend to study previously with satellite images the map showed with this link:




Firstly, turn right off the N340 road heading from Crevillente to Albatera, just before the Cepsa Petrol Station, and drive up this road for about 1.7km. Then, you have 2 closed curves, first to the right, and inmediately the second to the left. After that, you must turn in the first lane to the right, that is really bumpy. The destination is not far away now, but to have in mind the map is needed from this point, although discreet signages showed at the picture below, point the way in the intersections. 

If the first parking is full, there is another one driving to the exit. Once you arrive there and after to cross the first garden, you will have to ring the bell and wait until somebody open you the gate.



Before to choose a place to sit down, enjoy the magical atmosphere going round the gardens, terraces, rooms and nooks, discovering every hidden place and trying don´t miss anything.

There is an entrance fee of 6€ with a tea included (price in December 2017) and arab pastries and milkshakes are also availables.


Timetables: July to September, every day from 6 pm. October to June, Wednesday to Sunday from 4 pm

  4. Really amazing post, thanks for sharing. Let me encourage you to focus on the joy of the season this year. Forget everything else. Understand that the finances, the family, the food and all the rest are part of it. But these things are no the stars of the holiday show.Best Ferien Grächen Service
