Comunidad Valenciana Off The Beaten Path

  • Trendy roundabouts

    Denia has a great seafront which has been done very nicely.Its an all year round town with lots of bars,resturants staying open.It has banks,chemists,doctors,vets,supermarkets,dentists,estate agents etc.Take a walk along the seafront and harbour and then relax at a bar.Denia also has a castle on a hill over looking the town. The castle is well...

  • Quatredondeta

    Quatredondeta is a typical mediterranean village lost in the mountains, yet not far away from the busy coast of the province of Alicante. The area provides a lot of interesting hiking opportunities, the most famous being the trail that leads to the Frares (The Priests), a number of rock formations modelled by the erosion that, according to the...

  • The Serranos Region

    The Serranos Region is an undiscoverd part of the interior of the province of Valence, in the upper course of the river Turia after it enters the Community of Valence. Its capital is the town of Chelva (main picture), but there are many other towns and landscapes to discover in addition to the already mentioned Chulilla and Alpuente.

  • the Columbretes Islands

    The Columbretes Islands are one of the natural treasures of the Valencian Community. they are located 35 miles off the coast and the boat trip takes aroun 1.30 h.They are of volcanic origin and their solitude has never been interrupted but by the occasional lighthouse men and military expeditions. This isolation has allowed for the preservation of...

  • Building has begin

    Where my place is the building has taken off.I felt abit sad when I visited again as I saw new buildings and cranes.I just hope they keep it nice and do not over due the building and ruin the place.I am glad to say along this coast road there are villas already so they cannot build big buildings all along the coast as the villas break this up.Where...

  • New building work

    Each time we visit Denia we see new buildings that have gone up.Luckily the beach at El Verger is still unspoilt.We noticed they had built huge pier things out of rock.We walked along them and had a great view along the coast.I believe they were built to stop erosion.This part of the coast is very pebbley and I think in the future they may make it...

  • Spanish Dog

    While walking along the Oliva/Denia road we saw this cute dog looking over a balcony sunning itself.I just thought it looked so cute and funny I had to take a photo.The beach along this road is still unspolit and it is worth taking a look.Buildings are starting to spring up so take a look before it's natural state vanishes.Anywhere between els...

  • My dream alomost complete

    Here i am in my house.Next stage is to live there fulltime.Im missing it already and have only been home 2 days.Im missing the mountains and lush valleys and sunshine and paellas.The outside lifestyle.It was -3 when i came home to England.It was 19c in Spain.I misssssssss Spain ;-(

  • Take a walk along Calpe seafront

    I recomend you to just park up somewhere near Calpe Rock and just take a walk around the rock.See both sides.Contrasting scenery .Walk along the nature reserve at the bottom of the rock and see and hear the protected birds flying around and enjoy the gardens that have been planted and enjoy the views along the coastline.The other side of the rock,...

  • Penon de Ifach

    As the Penon de Ifach is so high, 372 metres above sea level it sure stands out.The rock is connected to the land by a small strip of land and there are inlets both sides with beautiful beaches.Calpe is quite a big place and i find this part of Calpe the nicest.The other side of Calpe rock is a seafront with a long promande lined with high rise...

  • Museums and beaches

    Javea has a museum worth visiting.Archaelogical and Ethnoligical Museum.It has important finds made around the area.Iberian jewllery and ornaments which were found on the Sierra de Montgo and a gold crown.I had my honey moon in Javea and it was my first time to the Costa Blanca.I fell in love with the area straight away.The valleys around Javea are...

  • Mountains

    I really enjoyed going up the Montgo mountain viewpoint as the views were very beautiful and it was peaceful too.The drive up from Denia took about 15 minutes and as we drove up the views were very good.As you reach the top the road levels out and there are several places you can pull off.You can park up and walk to the edge and see the views along...

  • Sandy and rugged

    The centre of Denia is its port.Denia has plenty of monuments and also old quarters to see.Biax-la Mar is such a place near the port which is very scenic.You can visit the fish market which still sells fresh caught fish every evening.People sell the fish off their boats too.The castle is the most interesting building in Denia.It stands on a hill...

  • Denia and its rugged coastline

    Denia is about 100kms from Alicante and Valencia and the Costa Blanca begins here.I really love this area as it has a beautiful rugged coastline and dramatic mountain ranges surrounded by lush valleys filled with orange and lemon groves.The land is very fertile and because the soil has clay in it it keeps water in it longer and is very good to grow...

  • Spanish Holidays.

    Spain has national, regional and local holidays.Its hard to keep track of all of them as each town has its own saints day and has fiestas at different times etc.Here are the main ones but most places have at least 6 or seven others too.January 1& 6(Epiphany)Good FridayEaster SundayEaster MondayMay 1(May Day)October 12(National Day)November 1 (All...

  • More Festivals

    Northwest Spain- Feast of St James. July 25th.Santiago de Compostela.This is a huge festival with a breath taking fireworks display and a mock burning of the cathedral facade. Northeast Spain- Fiesta de San Fermines. July 6-14 is the running of the bulls in Iruna. Fieasta de San Mateo is in September 21st and is the Logrono Grape Festival,Eastern...

  • Spain and its Varying Climates

    Spain is a large place and each region has different climates.The north coast is battered by the Atlantic throughout winter and is cold and gets plenty of rain, mist.But it has nice hot summers and thunderstorms.The med coast is wide spread as from deserts of Almeria to subtropical climate in Granada to pine covered hills of Catalunya.The Pyrenees...

  • Raco d'Ademus

    This is a picture of Castielfabib, one of the most interesting villages in the Rincón de Ademuz. This remote area is secluded between Aragón and Castille. You can see more pictures in my Ademuz page.

  • Wind park in one of the Sierras of...

    In contrast with the topical image of the region of Valencia, based upon sandy beaches and orange orchards, the largest part of the territory is occupied by sierras which still preserve a natural value of great value.The province of Castello ranks indeed number two among the Spanish provinces in regard to their average height above the sea.

  • Javea is ideal for a family holiday

    Javea is ideal for a family holiday.In spring it is full of the scents of orange and lemon blossoms.Citrus fruits here is the regions main cash crop around the turn of the century.Javea has a perfect climate and a great museum and two beautiful churches.

  • Mountain all around Denia

    Denia has a great climate and it is warm all year round.It is set around mountains and the views are wonderful.Im so glad i decided to buy my house here.The coastline here is very natural and unspoilt and there are loads of places to stop off on the beach on the coast road from Denia to Oliva.

  • Visit pretty Denia

    Denia is a must see too.Ive bought a house here and its nearly built now.Denia has a great harbour,port,shops,bars,resturants etc.It is very smart and has nice gardens and palm lined streets and a wonderful ferry service,You can catch a ferry to Ibiza or Canary Islands.There are miles and miles of golden sandy unspoilt beaches around Denia.

  • Cactuses everywhere

    You must drive to a Spanish village up in the hills to see the real Spain.I found Elche a great choice.I also went to Villajoyosa,a small fishing port with narrow streets and the last week of July,they hold a Fiesta.The Fiesta and parade is well worth seeing and it lasts for a week.I enjoyed the El Algar Waterfalls also,which you could swim in,very...

  • Costa Blanca has lots of hidden coves

    Costa Blanca has lots of hidden coves if you go for a short walk and there is a great cactus garden with huge cactuses and fantstic views out to sea just before you get to Calpe.Calpe rock has a good beach and nature reserve which is away from the hustle of the resort centre.It is much prettier and quieter here and the beach does not get crowded at...
