Weather: Moraira enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate, with sea breezes cooling the area in summer and in winter getting protection from the cold North winds from the surrounding mountains. The area averages some 3,000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature exceeds 20 degrees. On average there are 325 sunny days each year. In 1986 the World Health Organisation commended the Moraira climate as one of the most equitable in the world - neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter.
History: Moraira covers 32 sq.kms. with more than 2,000 hectares under cultivation and 1,000 hectares of vineyards. The vineyard area is up in the hills where the land is not so valuable for villa development.
Objects found in a cave (Cova de la Cendra) on the Cap d´Or ( the headland that protects Moraira´s and El Portet beaches) revealed that there has been human habitation in Moraira for thousands of years.The first settlers (Upper Palaeolithic 15,000 to 20,000 BC) lived here.
The Iberians later arrived in the area and pots from their culture have been unearthed on the Cap d´Or .
Later as elsewhere along the Spanish Mediterranean Coast, the Moors conquered the area. The relics of Moorish society are seen still today in the architecture of the buildings, the irrigation and agricultural systems and town layouts. Many of the names used for areas of Moraira have come from the Moors.
Legend...: There is a legend that Moraira was named after the Moorish princess 'Ira, la Mora' - hence 'Mora Ira'. This may or may not be true. However there is no truth in the tale that her bones are buried under the old castle on the main beach (now restored as a historical monument and museum).
At the end of the 18th century, when Teulada was a farming village, crops were exported by sea from the natural ports. As time went by, locals started turn to fishing as a source of income. The small houses where the tackle used to be stored, were enlarged to become fishermen's houses. This was how Moraira as a village came to be developed.

About Daniel Puchol
Hi, I know Moraira since... always. My parents bought a house in Moraira when I was a little boy. My family (my parents, my sister and brother) and I have spent our holidays (Christmas, Easter and summer) in Moraira for the last 35 years. Even if I've had the chance to travel all around the world (I work for Eurosport TV as a journalist in Paris), I have to say that Moraira has something very very special. I grew up in Madrid and, as a child, I always wanted to come back to Moraira. Now I live in Paris and my wife and I have a 1 year old baby-girl who already loves Moraira. We spent a fantastic time with her this summer. In fact we all had a great time: my parents, my sister, my brother, my wife, my baby and I. If you know Moraira you already know that the place is just wonderful, but if you don't know it yet I'm sure that you'll agree with me as soon as you come.
Daniel Puchol purchased this villa in 2008
Why Daniel Puchol chose Moraira
That's a great question. As I already said, I know Moraira for the last 35 years, so as you can imagien I know the whole area very well. That's the reason why it took me some time to buy my own property. I wanted to make sure that it was in the right place, and I finally found it. It is calm, comfortable and safe. I also wanted to make sure that the house was close enough to the beach, but at the same time I didn't want it to be very close to the village in order to avoid noises... And I found the perfect place. At the same time I didn't want to buy an old house as they usually have some problems even more when they are close to the beach. I wanted to buy a new and vert comfortable house for all the family, and that's what I did.
What makes this villa unique
Well, I think I'm not the right person to talk about the 'unique benefits' of my property. I think it would be a good idea to take a look to the reviews written by the tenants who have rented the house in the past. They will tell you about all the unique things of the house... It is calm, safe for children it has beautiful views...
