For discerning travelers only!
This classically beautiful front-line villa in Moraira, well-nigh grandiose, yet almost Greek in its solemnity, of impressive proportions and noble in appearance, is surrounded by magnificent exterior areas, such as a marvelous pool with Roman steps, sun-terraces, framed by pillars, royal palm trees of king-sized dimensions and an illustrious sea view. The imposing architecture is like a timeless painting, the exceptional build-quality inestimable, the superior decor a true feast for the eyes. Indeed, the property is a very fine example of a luxury new Spanish property.
The bright rooms are full of extraordinary objects of value, such as a full-sized depiction of Leonardo's “The Last Supper” in delicate shades, the mysterious relics of a shipwreck and a grand chandelier. A palatial reception room with hand-cut terracotta tiles and a wrought-iron, suspended fireplace, as well as a princely gallery and extensive window facades, not to mention a country house kitchen, both modern and comfortable in equal measure, bear witness to the superb tradition of the past, together with the comfortable practicalities of the present, in masterful unison and separately accentuated.
The location is secluded and sheltered, yet extremely close to the hustle and bustle of the idyllic coastal towns where you will be hard pressed to find a more luxurious front-line Moraira property. The beach is only steps away as are the dozens of restaurants nearby. You may never need to take the car out of the garage. (This is not the case with most rental properties in Moraira! Beware as many are found up in the hills and you'll need your car every time you want to go into town or to the beach.)
These are the beaches found near and around Villa Stellar:
L'Andragó: is a small and quiet beach found right across the street from the villa. There is always plenty of parking and pleasant restaurants right on the sea.
Playa del Portet: It is a small shell shaped inlet, with clear waters and a sandy beach, and is a superb setting for a peaceful swim. There are a number of small bars and restaurants along the front, showers, and parking area.
Club Nautica: The marina in Moraira is an exclusive yacht haven with many facilities, including a restaurant
L'Ampolla Beach is near the castle. A golden sandy beach, it is the largest and most popular beach in the area. It is lifeguard guarded in summer.
Platgetes beaches: have easy access; they are half golden sand and half rocky. Parking area, restaurants, showers; it also has a nice promenade that links them.
Cap Blanc: has a very pleasant bathing beach at the bottom of the cliffs. You park at the top, and walk down the path to the platform with steps into the sea. There are two beach bars/restaurants found here.
La Cala: a small rocky beach of clear waters and is difficult to access - get here either either by boat or by walking along the cliff. Worth a visit!
Torre Cap d'Dor: can be reached on foot from El Portet

Moraira's comfortable climate which is mild during the winters and not too hot during summers is considered by WHO (world Health Organization) to be one of the healthiest in the world. Not only does this place enjoy year round sunshine, but is also blessed with dramatic landscapes comprising of green vineyards, mountain ranges, almond groves and orange orchards. The picturesque bays and sandy beaches are so beautifully maintained that the area have been provided Blue Flag Status by the European community. The beaches present a divine experience with the crystal clear waters, making Moraira the pearl of the Mediterranean Sea.
Moraira is a gem of a town just a short distance south of Javea on the coast of the central Costa Blanca and a 30 minute drive from Benidorm to the south. Formerly a quaint fishing village with stunning views across to El Peñon de Ifach, the rock of Calpe, it now survives from tourism whilst retaining much of the charm which has long attracted visitors and foreign residents.
Rather than the tacky fish and chip type eateries of many resorts, Moraira is blessed with a wide selection of stylish cafés within its pleasant streets notably 'Deli' on Calle Calatayud which serves up an interesting selection of home cooked dishes including inventive salads, curries from many nations and quiche dishes. For more authentic Spanish fare try the shaded Las Gaviotas in the main square which lies in the shadow of the town's church. The main fish restaurants are located on the front overlooking the small port and fish market (La Lonja) where fish auctions take place every morning at 10 am except Sundays. Well worth seeing. Moraira is also seen as a culinary destination. Every year in December 11 restaurants organize together with the municipality a Gourmet week with international chefs, show cookings etc. Three restaurants are listed in Gourmetour (The Spanish Michelin Guide) being: Ca Pepe, Le Dauphin and La Sort.
For shopaholics Moraira's weekly market takes place on Fridays and there's another one every Wednesday in nearby Teulada. Teulada is actually the old town of Moraira and is well worth a visit to see Santa Catalina Church and the Divina Pastora Chapel amongst others. You can also sample some of the regions wines at the San Vicente Ferrer wine cellar. The Moscatel Festival in early September is another good time for a tipple!

Beach, supermarkets, dozens of cafes, bars and restaurants all within a 10-minute walking distance. Just across the street you'l find the best Japanese Restaurant called Aoi. The food is always fresh and the flavors never disappoint. There is a great little British bar, called Cascada just around the corner where the local British community like to meet for a beer and a quick hamburger. Also steps away you'll find Chinese, Indian, Moroccan, Swiss, and many other ethnic restaurants.
There's a Mas Y Mas supermarket about a 5 minute walk away and a Peppe La Sal, a more gourmet supermarket just a short 5 minute drive from the villa. There are also various bakeries and butchers, German, British and Scottish.
