BENITACHELL is 20 minutes walk from the villa (or a few minutes drive), and has an abundance of traditional Spanish bars/restaurants, plus English, Italian & Chinese restaurants all at very reasonable prices. The village is full of quaint, narrow streets, and there is a street market on Wednesday mornings - great for fresh produce. There are regular fiestas held througout the summer months - and the entire village joins in the celebrations - brass bands, colourful parades, fireworks, and street parties. There are a number of individual shops (bakers, butcher, fresh fish shop, general provisions, small supermarket) and banks in the village, and 3 large supermarkets within a few minutes drive.
NEARBY BEACHES: The villa is 10 mins drive from the beaches at Moraira (wide, sandy beach), and El Portet (a sandy, picturesque bay with wonderful views). Both of these beaches are suitable for children. The beach at Benitachell (Cumbre del Sol), which is secluded & virtually undeveloped, is also 10 mins drive. They all have toilets & restaurant facilities. Javea is 10 mins drive and has a large, sandy beach in the Arenal area. In addition, there are many unspoiled coves and viewpoints to discover within easy driving distance.
LOCAL PLACES TO VISIT:
MORAIRA (10 mins drive): Formerly a small fishing village - now an up-market town retaining a village atmosphere. Beautiful beach, excellent selection of bars & restaurants, & lively shopping area, including a market on Friday mornings. On summer evenings, a small craft market is held in the town, and there is often live music in the main square - lovely to listen to whilst you are eating al-fresco at one of the restaurants that surround the square. In mid-June, the town stages its annual "Moors & Christians" fiesta which is spectacular. It includes a "battle" around the castle, and culminates in a grand parade with fantastic costumes and floats. Not to be missed!
JAVEA (15 mins drive): A fascinating mix of old & new. The town is split into 3 areas: The Arenal - which has a huge, crescent-shaped sandy beach, and many restaurants & late-night bars along the promenade, the sophisticated Port area with its sea-front restaurants, and the unspoilt Old Town which is great fun to explore and has some great restaurants & tapas bars.
TEULADA (10 mins drive): Typical Spanish village with narrow streets full of pretty houses. Street market on Wednesday mornings - great for fresh produce, clothes, shoes, bags etc. at very good prices. This village has very few tourists and is the ideal place for mixing with the locals in it's many cafes and bars. It also has some very good restaurants where you can eat very cheaply including wine!
DENIA (25 mins drive): Historic major town, a castle proudly surveying the port, fantastic marina with good restaurants, and huge stretches of sandy beaches. You can drive to Denia over the Montgo (Sleeping Elephant) mountain, which is a national park, or take the train from Teulada.
ACTIVITIES: There are an abundance of activities available locally including water sports, boat trips, golf, tennis, cycle hire, horse riding, fishing, and go-karting.
GOLF: Javea Golf Club is just a few minutes drive, and there is also a golf course between Moraira and Calpe - Golf Ifach (20 mins drive), and at La Sella at the Marriott Hotel, Denia (25 mins drive).
SHOPPING: For shopping lovers who wish to escape the summer heat, there is a large air-conditioned shopping centre: PORTAL DE LA MARINA which has a multitude of shops and is located in Ondara (25 minutes drive from the villa).
LOCAL TRAIN: There is a local train (tram) that you can catch from Teulada station that takes you to Denia in one direction, down to Benidorm in the other direction via Altea. It is worth going on the tram for the scenery alone, and it's very cheap!
THE REGION - PLACES TO VISIT:
BENIDORM (45 mins drive): Major tourist resort, very commercial, lots of shops, the best beaches in Europe, and unrivaled nightlife. TERRA MITICA THEME PARK, TERRA NATURA WILDLIFE PARK, AQUALANDIA WATER PARK, & MUNDOMAR (dolphin & sea lion shows) are all located here. Great fun for all ages! Also BENIDORM PALACE for a good meal, flamenco cabaret, & dancing.
CALPE (25 mins drive): Rock of Ifach - a bird/wildlife sanctuary - & Las Salinas Salt Lakes - where pink flamingos congregate. There is also an interesting port area that has some fantastic fish restaurants, & an interesting Old Town.
VALENCIA (1 hour's drive north or take the train from Xeraco - 40 mins drive north on the motorway) where there is easy parking: Spain's 3rd largest city & thought to be more than 2000 years old, and a former Moorish capital. Sights include the Cathedral, the Silk Exchange, Ceramic Museum, & numerous art galleries. Sophisticated shops & magnificent covered food market. Don't miss the futuristic Science & Arts Museum.
ALTEA (30 mins drive south or by train from Teulada ): A coastal town with its own fishing fleet & dating back to 1562. Old town is very quaint & has many good restaurants & quirky shops. Huge market on Tuesdays (if you go by train, get off at Garganes for the market).
JALON VALLEY (30 mins drive inland): Fabulous scenery & unspoiled Spanish villages. Here you can see how rural life in Spain has remained unchanged for centuries. Famed for its wine production. From the vantage point of Coll de Rates, it's possible to see the whole valley and, on a clear day, the island of Ibiza.
GUADALEST: A mountain village 25kms inland from Benidorm - the 2nd most photographed place in Spain! The views from here are stunning. Built by the Moors to defend themselves from invasion, it is entered by going through a hole in the cliff face.
FONTS D'ALGAR: Situated on the way back from Guadalest - cascading waterfalls & fresh water pools where you can have a welcome swim after a hot day!

A lovely villa that was perfect in every way. It was very clean and we had a fabulous holiday. The pool area is very nice and we spent most days by the pool but the beaches in Javea or Moraira are only about 5-10 minutes drive away. The management company Solivillas were very easy to communicate with. Would definitely recommend Villa Los Pitufos!
