Valencia is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city on the Mediterranean coast. It is Spain's 3rd largest city, surrounded by orange orchards and sandy beaches. The city enjoys year round sunshine, which along with the Mediterranean character of the people, the cuisine, the wealth of historical culture, exceptional geographical location, and not to be forgotten famous nightlife, makes this an ideal choice of holiday destination.
Every town has its own annual fiestas, and no matter what time of year you visit you are bound to stumble upon one. Lliria and Marines have their fair share of these and I would highly recommend watching one if you get the chance. Two of the most famous fiestas are La Tomatina and Las Fallas.
Tomatina - This takes place in the nearby town of Buñol. It is a tomato fight festival which takes place each year towards the end of August. Tens of thousands of participants come from all over the world to fight in a battle where more than 100 tonnes of tomatoes are thrown in the streets. The week long festival features music, parades, fireworks and dancing.
Las Fallas - This is undoubtedly one of the most unique festivals in Spain and is a week long fiesta that takes place annually in March. What started as a feast day for St. Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters, has evolved into a 5-day, multifaceted celebration of fire. The main focus is the creation and destruction of Niñots – huge statues that are placed at over 350 points in the city and in each surrounding town, including Lliria. The niñots remain in place until midnight on the 19th, when La Cremà takes place. At the stroke of midnight the niñots are set on fire to the chants of the crowds and a spectacular firework display begins.
There are a number of other activities that take place during the week building up to La Cremà. Check out one of the many bullfights or there are parades and paella contests all around the city. Firework displays occur everywhere and another highlight is the daily Mascletà which takes place at 2.00 in the Plaza Ayuntamiento when a huge pile of firecrackers are ignited and the ground literally shakes for the next 10 minutes.
For sports fans, Valencia has some of the best sporting venues in Europe with everything from the world famous football team, championship golf courses and incredible watersports venues. El Saler Golf Club was voted the 29th best golf course in the world but there are many other equally challenging and picturesque courses in the area, including El Bosque, Oliva Nove Golf Course, L'Escorpion and Villamartin.
The villa is only 5 minutes Drive away from the pretty village of Marines and the same distance from Olocau which boast a number of shops, bars, banks, park and a Marines has a small Saturday market.
A 10 minute drive will bring you to the bustling town of Lliria, an ancient traditional Spanish town known as the 'Town of Music', with all the amenities you would expect, such as bars, restaurants, shops, market etc. The town is located some 20 kms northwest of the City of Valencia, near the Mediterranean coast and is well served by both road and by Metro.
