Casa el Cardo Morado / The cardboard house known from 'I Depart'
An attractive and small-scale B&B / Glamping to relax in a beautiful cycling and walking environment. We are 20 minutes from Alicante Airport and from a lovely sandy beach with nice eateries.
On our property we have a swimming pool, Farmers Golf Course, Mini Golf Course, petanque court, darts and a slide for the little ones. In the seating area is an Honesty Bar with reading books, magazines and all kinds of games.
Our B&B / Glamping has a luxurious B&B Guestroom Morella with ensuite bathroom for max 4 persons and 2 adventurous unique wooden PODs, Valencia and Oliva, both for 2 persons with shared bathroom.
Prices include WIFI, coffee and tea making facilities in the room, towels, hair dryer, shower gel and body lotion, electricity, use of mountain bikes or regular bicycles and a beach towel for the pool.
Both the guest room and the 2 PODs have luxury beds with quality mattresses and from November 2021 also a small fridge in the rooms.
There is space for 2 campers, size up to 7 meters, self-sufficient. We are working on a shower, washing place and power points. (see news item at motorhome pitches),

►Most know us from the Ik Vertrek program. We have had a lot of trouble with the house but we have worked hard to make our house and the rest of our guest rooms a beautiful palace ◄
Who are we? We are David and Gine Shearlaw, together since October 1994 and married for 20 years. Since February 5, 2019 we live in this beautiful house in Aspe. Why do we want to start a B&B and why in Spain? In 1995 we lived in New Zealand for a year, looking for a B&B in Scotland (David's native country), but the weather held us back.
After that we almost started our own running shop, but a gut feeling told us not to. And that feeling was good. A year later David had an acute hernia that he also had surgery on and I was also diagnosed with breast cancer in that same year (2017).
And then our lives turned upside down. Because then you really start to think very carefully about what is important in life and what you still want to do. We wanted to go to a warm country and start a guest house, but not too far from our family, because I want my parents to be with me in a few hours or vice versa.
Spain was quickly decided. In 2018 we spent 3 weeks looking for a suitable place in Andalusia, but did not find what we were looking for. In November 2018 this house came our way in the Costa Blanca, after a favorable architectural report we became the owners.
This is exactly what we were looking for and in a beautiful place.
Why a holiday home then?
We like to give people a wonderful time in a beautiful guest room with the luxury of home and the adventurous POD's also equipped with every luxury. There is room for a camper, caravan or tent. The site is big enough.
A nice area with good food, a drink, a dip in the pool, beautiful walking and cycling routes and close to a beautiful sandy beach and of course almost always good weather. Because who wouldn't want to be pampered?
Well that's possible with us!
