The Costa Blanca / Valencia / Alicante Province region
The Costa Blanca or White Coast, which extends along that section of the Mediterranean coast that corresponds to the province of Alicante, is made up of two clearly differentiated scenic sectors. To the North, a curtain of mountains runs parallel to the sea, descending at times to form cliffs; to the South, a vast plain of sand patches, palm trees and salt deposits make up the backdrop for the beaches.
The traveller can choose any of the corners of this coast, from the most bustling and cosmopolitan to those still maintain their rural air beside the sea. In any case, the trip to the nearby regions is well worth the venture for they make up a fine representation of the typical Mediterranean countryside. From the valleys, which are covered with stepped orchards and keep alive its Moorish past, to the palm trees of unmistakable African origin, the horizons of the Costa Blanca offer the most varied attractions.
The climate offers variations as well. The temperatures are usually mild -the annual average is a little higher than 17ºC- and rain is scarce, though the pluvosity is logically higher in the mountainous northern sector, in comparison with the lowlands which surround Elche and Orihuela. The fields of almond trees, the vineyards, the fruit orchards and the magnificent palm trees form vegetation, which emphasizes the oriental nature of the landscape.
The Javea / Rafalet area
Rafalet, Javea is situated on the Costa Blanca with 220 km of coast and 100km of white sandy beaches. Mid way between Alicante and Valencia with their international airports, Javea lies between the capes of San Antonio and La Nao. It is surrounded by orange, olive and almond groves and the Montgo Mountain. Javea is divided into 3 areas: the Old Town with narrow cobbled streets and white washed houses, the fishing port and marina and the El Arenal sandy beach ,with promenade, shops, bars and restaurants..
Rafalet has been described as the first haven of peace from the summer hustle and bustle of Javea old town and beach areas. The villa itself is situated on a level plot, on the west facing hill that makes up Rafalet. All this but within easy reach of all the holiday facilities, Restaurants, Bars, Shops etc.
