Christophe Salmon - Costa CarpeDiem

French-born but Spanish by adoption… this could be a good summary…

I first visited back in 2000 to finish my studies in Business Administration and Management in Madrid. I never planned to stay beyond that, but there was something about Spain that instantly struck a chord with me.The welcoming people, the fabulous food, the endlessly sunny days, and the Spanish way of enjoying life – I loved it all.

Deciding to permanently settle here was one of the easiest decisions of my life. And one of the best.

I took advantage of my first years in Spain by visiting the coast, where I discovered Calpe. I quickly fell for the charms of this small coastal village and the surrounding towns of Benissa & Moraira.

In fact, I loved Calpe so much that in 2005 I bought a penthouse here with my wife and started my first holiday rental experience. After buying another property in 2008, and receiving lots of great guest feedback, I began managing properties owned by my friends and family.

What began as a hobby quickly turned into a passion, and soon enough I had a thriving business on my hands. In 2016, I quit my day job in a multinational corporation for good and founded Costa CarpeDiem.

The Costa CarpeDiem Experience

For me, nothing beats the excitement of our holidays, they give us that rare but precious opportunity to escape our hectic lives for a while and spend quality time with the people we love. It’s this appreciation of how special holidays are that lies at the heart of the Costa CarpeDiem experience – a “seize the day” approach to life.

The Costa CarpeDiem Experience

Above all, I want you to feel right at home from the moment you arrive. If you have any specific requests, just let me know and I’ll make sure it gets taken care of. Need a transfer from the airport? Best price on a car rental company? A recommendation on great local restaurants? Just ask, I’ll be happy to give you my best tips.

Getting great reviews and messages from my guests expressing how much they enjoyed their stay? It’s my “gasoline” – a reminder of why I love what I do. My hope is that you come to discover this amazing region, enjoy the Spanish way of life as I do, and live the CarpeDiem experience. I know you’ll have an unforgettable time here, and undoubtedly feel like visiting time and again!
