Pinar De Campoverde
An Area Guide to Pinar De Campoverde
Pinar de Campoverde literally translates as ‘pine forest and green fields’ and perfectly reflects its privileged location nestled into a lush pine clad hillside at the foot of the Sierra de Escalona mountains. Situated 8km inland and just a few kilometres from the town of Pilar de la Horadada, Pinar de Campoverde is a hidden gem having the perfect blend of traditional village feel and relaxing holiday atmosphere.
As the name suggests the town is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with its elevated position ensuring spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and pine forests towards the Mediterranean and Mar Menor seas. The famous Rio Seco Natural Park sits along the southwest edge of the town and provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy long scenic walks along the dry riverbed, whilst the dramatic sandstone gorge is home to a magnificent waterfall and is a great spot to relax and enjoy these wonderful surroundings.
The population of over 3000 inhabitants comprises an eclectic mix of expats, embracing dozens of nationalities and making for a vibrant and welcoming community spirit. With a good mix of both permanent residents, second home owners and holidaymakers, the village is busy year-round.

Weather in Pinar De Campoverde
Blessed with a climate that the World Health Organisation declare to be one of the very healthiest in the world, the area is noted as having ‘as near perfect an environment as it is possible to obtain’ – high praise indeed! Year-round sunshine and low humidity are a perfect combination and with the Costa Blanca enjoying an average annual temperature of 19o, highs of 40o+ and more than 3000 hours of sunshine over 320+ days, few other regions can compete. Water temperatures average 25o even in the autumn meaning you can take a dip in the Med well into late October whilst daytime temperatures often still reach well into the 20’s throughout December making this the perfect spot to escape the British winter!
Properties in Pilar De La Horadada
Pinar de Campoverde itself is split into two distinct areas – the ‘old town’ and the ‘new town’ – with each being primarily distinguished by the style and architecture of the buildings within each area. The ‘old town’ is mainly made up of older, large detached villas on spacious plots whilst newer townhouses, detached and semi-detached villas on smaller plots, a few apartments and some new-build developments can be found in the ‘new town’. Both areas are well served with local facilities with plenty of restaurants, bars, coffee shops and international supermarkets as well as a chemist, doctors’ surgery, dentist, a vets and bank.

Thank you to Matt for all his help in finding our dream place in the sun!
We have a Spanish property already so knew some of the area, but Matt was great at understanding what we were after and found us some lovely homes to look at.
We found Matt really helpful from the start, he helped us think about different properties and visualise new builds.
Not only was he helpful taking us around different areas to view properties but he has been excellent ever since and is definitely our “go to” person, be it chasing solicitors, dealing with the developers, or just giving general advice.
Matt is really friendly and always around to help. Would highly recommend him to anyone!

Hi, would like to say a big thank you to Matt for helping with us with our search for a property in Spain . He was extremely helpful and polite throughout.
Thank you matt for helping us on our journey in Spain.
I cannot recommend Homes Overseas enough! Matt worked tirelessly to find us our ideal property in Spain and it took a while as I am quite fussy!! We now have a fantastic holiday home to enjoy. Matt organised everything to do with the legal side of the purchase and has some great contacts to get things done! He made us feel at ease throughout the whole process and kept us informed all the way through. It was so easy with Matt’s help, of course!
