About this location
The Valenciana region
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 10 minutes walk away from the pretty village of Marines, which boasts a number of shops, bars, banks, park and 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.

"gorgeous location, beautiful grounds, lovely tennis court, but could use a few adjustments/extras to be really special"
Encouraged by the 5 star review, we were very excited to arrive but there were a few little niggles in store. This villa has so much going for it but a few small changes are needed if it is to rack up… More
“Thank you for your comments on the villa's beautiful setting, landscaping and grounds and all that it has to offer for an enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
We would like to address some of the other issues in your review:
1/ Unfortunately we can't guarantee the weather but there is a large amount of information about local attractions in the lounge and the local town of Lliria has a tourist information centre. We always provide a clean villa and all the bedding that you will need even if the temperature does drop a little (quilts, blankets and extra bedding are and always have been provided and are located inside the wardrobes in each bedroom).
2/ The issue of sun beds has been resolved and our apologies for this oversight.
3/ There are actually two full sets of plates and bowls in the kitchen cupboards (2 x 6 place settings) which should be more than enough for 9 people to be able to sit down together.
4/ The villa is fully cleaned before the arrival of each guest. This includes all floors under and around the beds and the kitchen is also thoroughly cleaned. The oven although not new will always be clean.
5/ A small free standing BBQ is provided in addition to the inside Paellero (which is a traditional open wood burning oven and therefore often sooty!!). Apologies for any cobwebs present in the paellero chimney.
The villa is listed as a rural villa and is of a very high standard for this type of accommodation. The bathrooms and kitchen are as shown in the photographs and they are clean and fully functional. If you had an issue with the cleanliness of the kitchen when you arrived we would have been happy to address this with you.
This is a self-catering villa in rural Spain and as it can be dusty day to day, particularly when windows and doors are open, it may be necessary to carry out some dusting/cleaning during your stay if you so wish. We would like to point out that all issues could have been resolved with a simple phone call. We are always available and happy to help with any issues or complaints which are inevitably very difficult to resolve to your satisfaction after you have left. We are here to assist so that queries such as bedding or lack of kitchen equipment etc can be cleared up immediately, leaving you enjoy the rest of your stay!.

"This villa is a gem, hidden in the countryside, but only a short drive to beautiful valencia."
Villa Marines is a very comfortable place to stay, with excellent facilities and in a very good location, close to non touristy local towns, but not far from the coastal cities and beaches. Lovely swimming pool and tennis court, and well thought out planning both inside and out. We would love to return.
