The DVD player plays CDs and has a USB port for input from mobile devices.

Further details outdoors

TWO VERY PRIVATE TERRACES, with completely different mountain views. The Para Dos terrace includes sun loungers, parasol, table, chairs and a gas fired, griddle type barbecue. It is a secluded sun trap in an elevated location, with delightful views across "Valldigna" and the village. The pool terrace faces in the opposite direction, with a peaceful and unspoiled view up to "Eagle Ridge", with a choice of sun or shade, sun loungers or chairs.

The SUPERB SWIMMING POOL is a special feature of this property. Located behind the adjacent owners house, it is very private and not overlooked. At 11 meters (36ft), it is longer than most private pools and is thus suitable for serious swimming, or just the occasional refreshing dip. It is heated by a powerful Solar heating system, so that the comfortable swimming season is greatly extended, being warm enough for most people from April to October.

Secure and shaded parking with electric gate.

Further details

A welcome pack includes bottled water, wine, beer, hot drinks, fruit juice, and snacks. For late arrivals, a suitable food pack can be ordered if required.

As the owner's home is adjacent, they are on hand to welcome you and provide any necessary support during your stay, but will otherwise leave you alone to relax. They speak English and will also understand a little Spanish or French.

Reduced mobility is not a problem as car parking, the cottage and terrace are all on one level, but there are some steps, with hand rail, up to the pool area.

The Valenciana region

CLIMATE - Valencia claims at least 325 sunny days per year, but this lovely green valley enjoys perhaps only about 315! In summer, rain is rare or non-existent for three to four months. At other times, some rain can be expected on 3 to 5 days per month, sometimes very heavy for a few hours. But the sun soon comes out again, averaging 5.5 hours per day in winter, rising to 10 hours in summer, when maximum temperatures are 25C to 30C, occasionally around 35C. Even in mid winter most lunches can be enjoyed on the terrace at 15C to 20C.

VALENCIA CITY - is charming and less than one hour by car, or more conveniently by train that will take you from Alzira or Tavernes in 35 minutes, right into the centre of the old city, which has many historic buildings to explore. The City of Arts and Sciences, has stunning modern architecture and includes concert halls, an Imax cinema and a great science museum. Elsewhere there is much to satisfy a wide variety of interests, including the Bioparc (zoo), Europe's largest aquarium and some fabulous shopping opportunities. La Albufera, just to the South, is a wetlands nature reserve, with relaxing boat trips and many good restaurants.

LAS FALLAS - is the truly amazing spring fiesta, March 15th to 19th. There are hundreds of huge satirical figures to be seen, before they are burned on March 19th. Thousands of Falleras, girls in traditional dress, bring millions of flowers to adorn the huge figure of the Virgin Mary. Fireworks can be seen and heard daily at 2.00pm, on a spectacular scale. NB. Our local town of Alzira also puts on an amazing display.

If you have special interests, see if your visit can coincide with a major event, such as a concert, opera, jazz, Cirque du Soleil, football, F1 or Moto GP, ATP tennis, FEI show jumping etc.

Barraca D'Aigues Vives

"Para Dos" is situated in a delightful, elevated position, surrounded by terraced orange groves in "Valldigna", a remarkably green valley that leads from Alzira down to the Mediterranean at Tavernes. This is about halfway between Valencia and Denia, just North of the Costa Blanca.

Our AREA GUIDE DVD, LOCAL MAP and 50+ SATNAV COORDINATES will help you find your way around.

BEACHES - Glorious wide sandy beaches mostly Blue Flag and amongst the best in Spain, are only well known to Spaniards and a few French. They are thus busy in July and August, with a great Mediterranean atmosphere, but surprisingly quiet for the rest of the year. Tavernes Playa (15km) and Xeraco Playa are small resorts, with a few good restaurants and quiet dunes close by. A little further along the coast Cullera (25km round the mountains) and Gandia, are larger and more elegant, with extensive promenades and a wide choice of restaurants and shops.

BIRD WATCHING - Guided trips in English, are available locally to key locations.

GOLF - Opened in 2011 the La Galiana course just across the valley, enjoys a spectacular setting, high up in the beautiful "Valldigna" valley, surrounded by pine forest and orange groves. Unlike most Spanish courses, it is not overlooked by property development. The course is simply amazing, it has everything, including views, testing golf, excellent quality of greens and great staff. This is a public course, with no membership and fees are competitive.

MOUNTAIN BIKING - Bike hire, private guided trips and beginners' skills courses, are available locally and in English. A great way to explore the beautiful Valencian mountains.

WATER PARK - Aquapolis near Cullera for a fun day out.

WATER SPORTS - JetSki, windsurf, sail etc. Gandia, Cullera or further afield.

WALKING - Many signposted scenic walks among the mountains, both from "Para Dos" and further afield.

"A perfect getaway"

We had an incredible few days in Para Dos away from our hectic working lives in London. The location is really unique overlooking the orange groves and mountains in Valencia and even though it is a little tough to get to at first the view from the terrace in Para Dos is totally worth it. Mike and Chris were wonderful hosts who were there when we needed them but otherwise discrete making us feel like we had the whole place to ourselves. Highlights for us were the pool which was very private, the terrace with its lovely views and the outdoor grill which we used to cook the best seafood meal on the last day! We would highly recommend Para Dos to any couples looking to get away from it all and will be returning some time soon :) Ahmed and Roula

"A wonderful holiday"

We wanted a relaxed holiday away from the urban feel of our country. Usually, our holidays are packed with sight seeing so that we absorb as much as possible from the place's culture. This time we decided to take things slower, and this cottage was just the right place for that. The owners, Chris and Mike made us feel at home and welcome. We enjoyed swimming in the 11m heated pool. We had wonderful Spanish BBQ nights at our private veranda, enjoying the stunning views of the cottage surroundings. The beach is just a short drive away, but who needs the beach when you have a secluded pool for your own. The pool will not be available for 1hr a day as the owners will need it to clean it and personal use. We will be back for sure.

""The perfect getaway""

This was the first holiday together alone for 19 years, so we wanted it to be very special. It was perfect !! didn't want for nothing.. The accommodation was great, had everything you needed. The views were breathtaking and watched the sunset in the evenings by the pool..Beautiful... Mike and Chris were there if needed but never intruded in our privacy. A very relaxed holiday which we are sure will visit again in the future. Many thanks.

"Para Dos"

A perfect location surrounded by some beautiful countryside, within easy access to lots of great places. We were made most welcome to Para Dos by Mike and Chris who were happy to leave us to it, but were always there for any help and advice. The accommodation was ideal with everything we needed and was presented beautifully. The area offers some quiet Spanish towns, however there are some busier places if you want them, and we didn't have one bad meal all the time we were there. Definitely recommend for a peaceful, stress free and relaxing stay.

Stayed for 4 nights in April and had a wonderful time! Easy to find from Valencia airport - takes around an hour. The cottage is perfectly equipped for two and the views are absolutely breathtaking! There is a large private balcony with table and chairs and BBQ. Good sized bathroom and compact kitchen (has everything you need). There are lots of local places of interest to visit like Xativa, the National park etc (and if short of ideas the owners have a great deal of local knowledge and are able to recommend places of interest/restaurants etc.) Pool area was lovely as well - with plenty of room for sunbathing. Overall a lovely holiday and we hope to come back! Thanks to Mike & Chris for a wonderful stay

So glad you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to having you here again, perhaps for a longer stay next time.

"So good we booked our return visit immediately"

Parados was one of the best self catering cottages we have ever stayed in. Perfect quiet location, great owners, air conditioning, glorious views, internet access, the best pool and terraced area we have ever been offered. Nothing was too much trouble, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We could not fault it.

Thanks for being model guests. We look forward to your forthcoming visit.
