Luggage and bags:
the weather can be a little unpredictable. It ranged from cold and wet to sunny and hot, so bring a little of everything.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Waterproof and your umbrella
Photo Equipment: A great camera is needed here for the amazing views.
Luggage and bags:
Travel light - we managed with a small case each (Well except for Bev, who brought a months supply of clothing!!) plus a daysac or shoulder bag for daytime.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: We all packed comfy shoes- Plenty of miles to cover! Clothes -we weren't sure of what to expect weatherwise, but we were ok with lightweight tops and jacket/cardigan for night.
We brought smart /casual clothing with us for sight seeing and going out at night.
Sunglasses - the sun was quite strong at times.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sun protection - even in February.
Blister plasters (Compeed) - for after walking all day and dancing all night!
Resolve/headache tablets for those morning after the night before moments.
Ear plugs if visiting during Fallas!!!
Photo Equipment: Plenty of photo opps in Valencia both day and night. I still haven't gone digital, and ran out of film, but managed to buy a roll in a shop off Pl de Reines.
Miscellaneous: Credit/debit cards - plenty of ATMs
Bubble wrap for wrapping souvenirs, bottles in.
Binoculars for views from Miguelet
wet wipes/antiseptic hand gel
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The weather in Valencia is mild and sunny during the winter but it can get really hot and humid in mid summer, a season when you want to spend the whole day on the beach. Heavy rains (gota fr?a) may fall in October / november. But, they usually only last for a few days. Spring is probably the best time to visit, with pleasant temperatures and sunny days.
If you travel here in the summer months be forewarned that it really is hot. For some people it can even be unbearable. Pack light coloured clothing as well as light fabrics. The last thing you want is to be walking around in a black tracksuit in 40C temperatures!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring sunscreen with high SPF and bring ALOE or Aftersun also because, believe me, you will need it
Miscellaneous: I know it seems obvious, But you really do need lots of water while walking around Valencia. If you havn't been here before, then please don't forget to carry plenty of water! While there is plenty of shade due to the tall architecture, these buildings seem to also make the atmosphere stuffy and humid!
My bungalow is now half finished.A finishing date should be April time ;)
Miscellaneous: Here is the lovely mountain range near the property.
If you want sun,deep blue seas,friendly people,delicious food and wine,great value for money,green and lush scenery,unspoilt towns,villages,fiestas,nights eating out doors,fresh fish and fruits,no big narsty hotels,just a tasteful area that will suit the young,old and active,,,,,choose north costa blanca.
Here is the site where my property is being built.It is set in a lovely area,unspoilt,quiet and very near the long,unspoilt beach.Valencia is only about 40 minutes away and Alicante about one and a half hours away.Denia has everything and there are also some bars,restuarants along the road from Denia to the site.
There are not going to be any two story properties built,so the view will not be lost and it is a very nice clean area.I cannot wait to do the garden and have some nice hols there.
Miscellaneous: Here i am enjoying a good meal at Denia.The costa blanca has a perfect climate and it is warm all year round.The temp does not usually get lower than about 15c.At Denia harbour,you can catch a ferry to Ibiza and the Canary Islands.You can also do a cruise of the coastline to Calpe.Denia has some great tapas bars and the vergel safari park is just minutes away.
And finally Denia.Denia is a nice harbour town with a huge long sandy beach.Denia is right the top of Costa Blanca and is very scenic.Here is the property im having built or it will be the same as this when its built.Its on a complex about 3 miles from Denia and it is right near the sea and set in a valley with mountains around.It will have 2 bedrooms,one bathroom,living,kitchen and a room upstairs that will be converted in the future to a bedroom and a bathroom.
The bungalow will have a drive,small garden,terrece,back patio and a roof terrece with views to mountains and sea.
It is set on a low rise complex which has a pool,tennis courts and a shop.There are restaurants about 1 km away.
Denia is a lovely town with a great selection of banks,shops,bars,restuarants,a harbour,and a big beach which goes on for miles.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Valencia is in the Mediterranean coast and enjoys a really nice weather almost all year. So bring light clothes in spring, summer and autumn...
Luggage and bags: Nothing if you wish, this was me on my second day in Ibiza, not quiet as dark as i was on the 9th day, yes im topless, thats why i asked that she took a shot of my back ok..:)
