Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Our villa has been considerably improved over the past few years but at the same time maintaining the Spanish feel of the property. The villa overlooks the valley between Teulada to Moraira and is only 2 km from the beautiful beaches. It is set in a peaceful residential area of Moraira.
The villa can be virtually split into two so two couples, maybe with children, spending time there can have their own facilities each. The villa is ideally suited for 4/5 adults and 1/2 children - six adults would not be comfortable. There is a private pool alongside the patio, with its gas barbeque, where al fresco eating and drinking is a must.
The pool is approximately 8 meters by 4 meters and just under 2 meters deep one end and just over a meter deep the other. There are easy rise steps in the shallow end.
You can chill out by the pool or spend your days touring the area as there is plenty to do. The choice is entirely yours.
We strongly advise that you rent a car with this holiday but there is a small supermarket that will provide everything you need 10 minutes walk away with a small number of cafes and bars. Having completed your shopping sitting outside under the trees with a coffee or drink before making your way home is a very pleasant experience. Also markets abound in the area and details will be available at the villa.

The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
One of the most beautiful places in Spain is the region known as the Costa Blanca. On average it enjoys over 300 days of sunshine in any year and supports an average temperature of 18°C all year round. One of the most interesting and attractive towns on the Costa Blanca is Teulada – Moraira which sits between the mountains and the sea. This area is recognised by the World Health Organisation as one of the best areas to live. Visitors will not be disappointed coming to this area.
It was not that long ago that holidaymakers discovered this sleepy little fishing village of Moraira, with its variety of gorgeous stony and sandy beaches that can be found both in the town itself and along the coastline. At that time, the villagers´ main livelihood was fishing, and their main diet consisted of eating the fish they caught. What used to be the fishermens´ storage huts have now been converted into picturesque houses. One of the reasons why many inhabitants of Teulada moved down to Moraira was work related; they decided to move to the coast for, if you live by the sea, you become a fisherman.
Today the system remains as it has been for hundreds of years; the fishermen go to sea in the early hours of the morning to catch the produce, which is sold later that day by auction at the traditional fish market. This market has grown over the years, and is now one of the most important fish markets in the Costa Blanca region.
The native people, who as all the travel brochures will tell you are renowned for their friendliness, soon realised the potential of their small fishing village and have changed their lifestyle accordingly. Nowadays a wide variety of opportunities exist for holidaymakers and, with a coastline stretching approximately 8km, this area has a lot to offer.
Turning from Moraira, to the inland town of Teulada, a picturesque village located approximately 6km inland. Wander in the shade of olive trees, where vineyards lie alongside plantations of oranges and almonds, and the heady aroma of pine sap emanates from the abundant pine trees typical of this idyllic region, and you could quickly lose yourself in the beauty of the surroundings. Whenever you go walking around Teulada, you will always pass by the Riu-Raus. These are arched constructions where the locally picked raisins are laid out to dry. The dried fruit is used, amongst other things, to make the sweet local drink Moscatel. If you were to suddenly see a donkey and cart accompanied by a farmer with a straw hat pass by a Riu-Rau, you would feel sure that you had stepped back in time.
At the end of the 18th century, when Teulada was a farming village, crops were transported by sea, embarking from the natural ports. As time went by, locals started to settle down near their working places, dedicating themselves to fishing. Those small houses where the tackle used to be kept, started to be enlarged until they were converted into real fishing houses, at the same time that this activity was gaining importance. This way how the foundations of what was to be known as an important tourist resort, called today Moraira, were laid.
Both Moraira and Teulada have festivals throughout the year and it is worth checking with the Tourist Information for details of these and other events. Also both places have an abundance of restaurants to suit any culinary taste. There will be some suggestions in the villa for you to consider.
Take a trip down the coast road to Calpe and onto the fishing port. Here there are some of the best fish restaurants in Spain. You will see from the photos on this site some of the delicacies that are on offer. Most of the restaurants offer a “Menu del dia” which is the menu of the day. Always look for these as these are usually the best value way to eat in the area.
Flea markets and wine tasting in the Jalon Valley are highly recommended. So is driving inland to La Sella, the Vergal Safari Park near Denia or a little further afield Europe's largest palm forest at Elche.
For children (when not in the pool!!) there is a permanent fairground in town with many children's attractions, open daily till late during most of the year. Attractions like: Terra Mitica Theme Park, Aqualandia Water Park and Mundomar Sea Life Park in Benidorm, a half hour drive away.
There is an International Go-Karting at La Font Santa Track a few minutes drive away, suitable for all levels including dual seated cars for those with young children. (Tel: 965 741 469)
The nearest nine hole golf course is a 10 minutes drive away, but there are 8 other courses within an hour's drive from Moraira:
Club de Golf Ifach, Moraira, 7 kms: 9 Holes;
Club de Golf Javéa, Javéa, 8 kms: 9 holes;
Club de Golf La Sella, Denia, 20 kms: 9 holes;
Club de Golf Oliva, Oliva, 35 kms: 18 holes;
Club de Golf Don Cayo, Altea, 20 kms: 18 holes;
Club de Golf Bonalba, Muchamiel 70 kms: 18 holes;
Club de Golf San Juan, San Juan, 70 kms: 18 holes;
Club de Golf El Saler, Valencia 100 kms: 18 holes.
Outside of Moraira - Teulada one of the most interesting places to visit is Guadalest some 30 minutes by car into the mountains. (See photos) Guadalest is of Islamic origin and at the time of its construction was considered a very valuable fortification. It was conquered y Jaime I and given to Vidal de Sarria whose family owned it up until 1335 and then later to Prince Pedro of Aragon. The now almost non-existing Castle of Saint Joseph, which can be seen in one of the rockiest points of the cliff, played an important part in the structural defence of the old city. It was originally constructed in the XII century, was reformed in the XV and in XVI centuries, was affected by an earthquake in 1644 and left to what it is nowadays.
The Castle – The street which leads to this area is called De La Pena and is extremely pretty. The most outstanding characteristics are the white-washed houses, the amount of flower pots that decorate each house, the variety of craft shops with its leather objects. The street ends with a long staircase where there is a door carved out in the rock where you can go into an older part for around 3 euros. At the end of this street is the Town Hall where there are dungeons dating back to the XII also carved into the rock. This is the highest and oldest part of the village where you can still see the local church of the Virgin, a bell tower built into the rock and the Castle of Saint Joseph mentioned before
The Arrabal – on the side of the cliff where the almost two hundred inhabitants have decided to make newer living quarters, leaving the “castle” for the tourists.
Having visited the town drive down to the reservoir and experience the tranquillity of sailing on the water in a solar powered boat. (See photos)
