This elegant and spacious holiday villa is located in the perfect location to enjoy all the amenities of the local area.
The house is situated in a quiet residential area only 3 minutes' drive from Moraira village and two of its three blue-flagged beaches.
Surrounded by an attractive and well-tended garden the villa enjoys extensive views over the surrounding countryside.
The accommodation is set on one level and only three steps separate the gated terrace from the secluded pool area.

The living space is bright and airy, the three bedrooms are all comfortably furnished, air-conditioned and have mosquito nets on all windows.

The Costa Blanca is one of Spain's main holiday areas and is famous for its wonderful climate, interesting towns and friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Alicante and Valencia are the two main cities of the region and their airports provide easy and reasonably priced access to the area throughout the year from most European cities.
The area offers plenty to see and do. The coastal towns of Calpe, Altea, Javea and Denia are all within 30 minutes' drive and well worth a visit. Benidorm, by far the biggest tourist centre of the coast, is around a 40 minute drive away. Its theme parks, including Terramitica (Spain's answer to Disneyland), Aqualandia Water Park and Mundomar Marine Park (sea world) offer children (and adults) a wide variety of activities
Not far inland the area is dominated by rugged mountains, cut by deep valleys and fertile plains that provide an impressive backdrop to the coastal landscape. The mountain towns and villages behind the coast are only a short distance from the major resorts but life there is a world away from the tourist hustle and bustle.
If you have the time to explore further afield Valencia, with its historic city centre, stunning 'City of Arts and Sciences' and spectacular aquarium 'Oceanografic', and Alicante, with its imposing 'Santa Barbara' castle, beautiful maritime 'Paseo' and elegant shops, are far too good to miss.
Moraira is simply a small, yet now bustling, Mediterranean port and an ideal location to spend a relaxing family holiday. There are no high-rise developments, no large hotels, no package tours and no large, noisy nightclubs. Development of the area has been closely regulated and is mostly in the form of privately-owned villas set amongst the rolling hills bordering the coast.
Moraira evolved as the fishing port for Teulada, and both the lookout tower (Torre-vigia) on Cap d'Or overlooking Moraira's El Portet beach, and the Castle are reminders of its past. The village has four beaches, each one different in character from the others. During the summer months all are cleaned daily. The beach of El Portet is situated in a small bay sheltered by the Cap d'Or headland; its clear and tranquil water and gently sloping seabed make it very safe for swimming and ideal for children. The Ampolla beach, closest to the town, offers an expanse of sand and is backed by a play area, beach bar and restaurant. Platgetes, further along the coast, is smaller, quieter and part sand / part rock. The fourth beach, L'Andrago, is composed of a mix of boulders and pebbles and is ideal for snorkelling. North and south of Moraira are a number of small coves and secluded bays that are worth exploring.
Fishing boats still sail from the port, and there is a daily market where their catch is sold, but their numbers are now far exceeded by the quantity of luxury yachts and pleasure craft that today use the facilities and marina.
Small enough to be unaffected by mass tourism, and fortunate to have retained much of its original charm and character, this vibrant and cosmopolitan holiday village has now become one of the most attractive and prestigious holiday centres of the northern Costa Blanca. Visitors are offered an extensive range of shops bars and restaurants and plenty of entertainments to suit all age groups and tastes.
All types of recreational facilities are available locally - tennis, surfing, wind surfing, water skiing, scuba diving, horse riding, walking, cycling, and swimming – and equipment can be hired locally at reasonable rates. Golfers will find three courses within a twenty to thirty minutes' drive of the village.
