The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
Some of the best mediteranean beaches are found in this uppermost area of the Costa Blanca. They have not yet experienced the popularity with British people, however this is growing and is a very popular area for Spanish holidaymakers.The coastline has miles of golden sand beaches all with their own attraction. Further south is Calpe the home to fresh fish restaurants. The Mediterranean Highway (N332) is a few minutes drive from the house and motorway approx 15 minutes
The cosmopolitan city of Valencia is approx. 50 minutes drive or there is a very efficient train service from Gandia direct to the city centre. Visit the state of the ark Science Park, the Historic Bullring and Gates to the City that stopped the Moors advancing further into Europe. Take an open top bus tour to view the mix of modern and historic architecture before dining on Paella. Valencia now hosts the European Street Grandprix in August and the port area has been revitalised to host the Americas Cup. The roads and conditions make the area very popular for cycling and motorbiking.
The area has stunning views both by road and other means. Take in the views whilst driving to historic Xativa, only an hour away, visit the castle. Take a drive to Benidorm but the scenic route through the mountains, experience swimming in fresh water falls, visit a vineyard, try the wine before you purchase at a Bodega. Further down the coast, Denia is an attractive sea town and port where you can catch a ferry to the Balearic Islands.
Gandia is a vibrant city and hosts many city attractions. The city steeps in history, visit the cathedral or take refreshments in the Cathedral Square. Museums, shops, bars, restaurants , weekly market, and nigh life, the choice is yours. A new shopping and restaurant development on the edge of the city, La Vital, also has bowling and amusements.
Gandia's immaculate beach (Playa) has shops, restaurants, bars, watersports and numerous sporting activities to keep you busy or relaxed the whole day. When evening falls and the night begins Gandia Playa really comes to life in the Spanish way.
Alfauir village can provide everything you need for a holiday without leaving the village. The neighbouring village Rotova, five minutes walk away, has a Post Office and bank in addition to supermarkets, bars and bakery serving fresh bread. The village and surrounding area is a haven for ambling, walking and bike riding. Try passing the time of day with the locals who are very friendly, mix with Spanish families during cooling off time at the village pool, with unrivalled views.
Spain holds Fiestas throughout the year and for many reasons, Alfauir and Gandia are no exception. If you are able to visit during Fiesta time you will experience the simple fun way of Spanish celebration and witness various firework displays.
