The Valenciana region
Costa Blanca is within region of Pais Valencia and in the province of Alicante. It consists of around 200 km of Mediterranean coastline though its borders aren't strictly defined. It is a mountainous region with wonderful sandy beaches and a great all year round climate. To the north it includes the popular resorts of Gandia, Javea and Denia and to the south it extends beyond the city of Alicante. The region is famous for its high quality cuisine specialising in regional rice dishes, super fresh seafood and great wines
Few sun worshippers escape the beaches and bars but the ones that do are in for a treat if they head into the stunning interior. Here you'll find one of Spain's great undiscovered gems, an area growing in popularity with walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers and nature lovers in general. Although popular with tourists there are still wild and unpoikt coves and beaches unreachable by car that are perfect for naturism and getting away from the crowds even at the height of the tourist season
The Costa Blanca Weather is what you would expect from the shores of the Mediterranean, lots of sun and little rain. It has been quoted by the World Health Organisation as being one of the healthiest climates in the world with more than 300 days of sunshine per year.
Winter daytime temperatures seldom fall below 10ºC and can in fact be high enough for sunbathing. At the height of summer average temperatures are around 30ºC
There is not much rainfall but what there is generally falls during the winter months. Fortunately even when it does rain you know that the sun is never far way. In the summer you would be very unlucky to experience more than a few drops of rain.
The Costa Blanca Weather means that you can really enjoy the outdoor life both in summer and winter and is great for playing golf and other outdoor sports
The property is situated on the slopes of La Sella mountain in the scenic triangle between Pedreguer, Denia and Javea.
It is set in a secluded rural enclave adjacent to a state of the art golf course designed in conjunction with Seve Ballesteros. There is a small supermarket about half a km away in la Sella or the nearest big supermarket is in La Jara 1 km away. There are modern tennis courts and horse riding facilities in la Sella.
Other local facilities include Cycling, Fishing, Golf, GoKarting, Horse riding, Parasailing, Sailing, Sightseeing, Snorkeling, Swimming, Tennis Courts, Walking, Water Skiing, Wildlife viewing and Windsurfing. Local boats provide a water taxi service between Denia, Javea and Moraira. There is a narrow gauge railway between Denia and Alicante, which is the best form of transport to view the magnificent scenery.
It is located within the municipal area of Pedreguer, an attractive and largely unspoilt small town with a few good restaurants and easy access to Moorish towns of Alcalali, Orba and the wine growing Jalon valley.
The closest seaside town is Denia which lies some 4km away and 7 km north of Javea along a spectacular winding mountain road watched over by Montgo Mountain. It is an attractive resort with a fascinating old town, fine restaurants and magnificent beaches stretching for many kilometers to the north.
There are daily Denia to Ibiza Ferry services (you can see Ibiza on a clear day) and Mallorca. There are also full and half day mini cruise options along the coast which visit other resorts including Javea, Calpe and Altea. The ferry terminal in the town centre lies only about 300m from the town's train station which is convenient for services south to Alicante. if you're headed north to Valencia or Barcelona by train you'll need to take a bus to Gandia or Xeraco and catch the train there.
Near the Denia train station is the very helpful tourist information where you can get a town map and stroll along to Marques de Campo. This lively street is lined with open air restaurants which are nicely shaded by trees. The surrounding streets are great for shopping. A tourist train runs from the tourist information office to the castle. Check times on the noticeboard outside.
For sightseeing head up to the town hall (ayuntamiento) building from Marques de Campo and visit the Iglesia de la Asuncion church with its fine dome. Then continue up the steps following the signs for the castle which overlooks Denia Bay. The castle closes for lunch between: 1pm and 3pm from October to March, 1.30pm and 3.30pm in April and May, 1.30pm and 4pm in June and September and between 1.30pm and 5pm in July and August. All the old houses that surround the base of the castle have been nicely painted in different colours adding to what is already a rather atmospheric place to wander around.
From the castle make your way to El Port which consists of a line of attractive restaurants facing the port area. Most of them tend to specialise in local rice based dishes such as Paella and Arroz a Banda as well as Fideua which is a noodle based paella.
As is the case with all the resorts in this area it is the beaches which provide the main attraction to visitors and Denia is no exception. As you head north of of town you immediately come to some pleasantly low rise properties on glorious, quiet beaches which continue on for many kilometres along this coast. By road leaving Denia in this direction you'll first of all come across a tastefully developed resort sector with a fine range of apartment complexes, bars and restaurants geared to an international clientele which slowly becomes more of a residential area independent of the tourist area.
For a change of scene you can easily spend a day visiting Javea just along the coast, you can head south to the multitude of theme parks which surround Benidorm and as an interesting short excursion you can head a few kilometres inland to the beautiful Las Calaveras caves at Benidoleig or go on to Orba and the spectacular Jalon valley.

"Perfect place for a winter getaway"
We really enjoy our stay at Casa del Mago, this year being the second time we have visited.
Our pets are welcome and we think that the dog would live there if possible! The people in the surrounding area are friendly and there are good places to eat, even in February.
Thank you Wendy. You and your dog are always very welcome at Casa del Mago any time. Judith

"Great house, great location - most relaxing holiday venue ever!!"
A hidden gem in the costa blanca - a very rural setting, yet close to beaches and Denia nightlife. Feels very secluded and private - furnished to a very high standard with so many homely touches.
We would all highly recommend this property.
Many thanks to the owners for allowing us the opportunity to enjoy their home.
