Villa | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Our family has grown up in this villa, relaxing together, eating together and most of all having lots of fun together. And we still love it! The master double bedroom is on the ground floor, and features a walk-in shower, plus bath en-suite. There are 4 further bedrooms upstairs (1 double, 2 twin, 1 bunk), while 2 more guests can fit on folding beds in the playroom (best suited to children/smaller people). The large table in the Naya is perfect for al fresco meals together, especially those cooked on the built-in BBQ. There are plenty of sunbeds, and a mix of shade and sun around the garden and on the upstairs terrace throughout the day. The 9mx5m pool is a great size for kids to play in. If the weather necessitates a move indoors, the kitchen table can also accommodate everyone together, then there's a living room with SKY TV and a playroom with well-stocked bookshelves, puzzles and games for all ages. There are 4 bathrooms, central heating, fans and FREE WIFI for your convenience.
This is an area of Spain in which a car is essential. The villa driveway can comfortably accommodate 3 cars, 4 if necessary, and we are situated within an hour from Alicante and Valencia airports, some world-class culture, walking, beautiful beaches, watersports, Michelin-starred restaurants, vineyards, golf courses and much more. We would be delighted to give you our family recommendations of places of interest nearby. Moraira itself is a friendly small town with a varied expat community, plenty of local amenities and a couple of lovely beaches, popular for family holidays. Though there are a few lively bars and one nightclub (though not disturbing the villa), a party/hen weekend town this is not!

The Costa Blanca/Valencia region
The Costa Blanca stretches for 170 miles from Denia to Mojacar and is ideal for a holiday at any time of the year. The climate in this region is warm even in the winter when the temperature rarely falls below 16. The countryside is mountainous and rocky and spectacular to drive through as well as providing many lovely walks for everyone and safe climbs for experienced climbers. There are hundreds of attractive orchards of lemon, orange, olive and almond trees etc. and their perfume is wonderful in season. There are many interesting places to visit, including Denia, Javea, Benidorm, Calpe, Altea, Elche and the hill top village of Guadalest. Moraira is a charming little village, one hours drive from Alicante Airport or an hour and a quarter down the coast from Valencia Airport. It nestles into the hillside and has wonderful views of the Mediterranean. It is an old fishing village which has been tastefully expanded over many years. It's harbour now has rows of luxury yachts as well as the old fishing port where a weekly fish auction is held. The market on a Friday is great fun and not to be missed.
Moraira was a small, old, fishing village, situated on the Costa Blanca on the Meditteranian coast of Spain, halfway between Valencia and Alicante, now is has increased in size a great deal. It boasts the highest overall annual temperature in Spain and in the summer there is normally a pleasant sea breeze so that it does not get too hot. It has two main beaches (one called Playa el Portet and the other called Playa de L'Ampolla) which are sandy and clean. Playa de L'Ampola has a stream running down it's side which is pleasantly challenging to dam but not impossible. The sea is clean and it is possible to spot many different fish with a snorkel. In the summer the sea is usually calm but in winter huge waves have been known to lash the coast. There is an attractive harbour with many luxurious yachts and some fishing boats too. There are also many lovely walkways and garden areas with fountains, tropical trees etc.
Buildings in the area have a distinct Moorish influence. The Moors invaded in 711 and were not finally driven until 1248. However, the area was recaptured for Spain by El Cid in 1094 and from then until 1248 it changed hands regularly. Some Christian churches still have their Moorish domes. The great battles of the Moors and Christians are still celebrated in annual fiestas up and down the coastline.
Properties in this region are generally painted white and have to be washed or repainted every few years since they become covered with red dust which is blown over directly from the Sahara Desert.
Inland, are vast areas of sweet smelling pine forests, many of which were planted by the Moors, as well as beautiful mountain sides covered with acres of lovely fruit trees and terraced vineyards. In the mountain town of Guadalest the river has been damed to form a spectacular reservoir which is best seen from the Castle of Guadalest (which means Eagles Nest). From there, too, Ibiza can be seen on a clear day. Nearby the Fuentes del Algar waterfalls can be visited and a swim in the ice cold water leaves you with a great envigorated and completely cleansed senstation.
Golf, tennis, riding, squash, water sports (including deep sea diving) and bowls are available in the area as well as numerous restaurants and bars. You can also find go-carting and discos nearby (but not within earshot of the villa!) Moraira has many sandy and rocky beaches with lifeguard facilities in season, snorkelling can be enjoyed all along the coast, there are many attractive shops and you must visit the market on a Friday.
