A perfect place in the Spanish Sunshine
The owner's description of the villa and the area is spot on. She even allowed us to take our 2 dogs even though I suspect she is a cat lover!
Toscal is one of the oldest established urbanisations in Javea and is, therefore, blessed with lush exotic trees, plants, flora and fauna. It is quiet, peaceful and far from the madding crowds. Bars, beaches, nightlife etc are within easy reach by bus. A car is necessary to reach the hidden coves and other towns easily but not absolutely essential. We had driven from London so had the best of both worlds. There is room for parking a car (or three) at the villa. And it is secure.
Our favourite cafe/bar - Bar Caleta - is walkable from the villa and is one of the most idyllic coves in Javea. Visit Portichol and Granadella coves. They have breathtaking views and beaches and you can eat and drink in authentic Spanish style.
Other favourite beach bars were Montgo de Bongo and La Siesta on the rocky beach between the Arenal and the Port. There are three or four other bars on this stretch of beach which only operate from May to September. They are really lively and fun. And of course the Arenal with a perfect sandy beach and just about every style of bar and restaurant you could think of. Artisans have tiny stalls along the Arenal at night. The bus will take you to all these places.
Upmarket shops are to be found in Denia which is the next very pretty town (about 8 kilometres away) and reached by a spectacular drive over Mount Montgo. If you are going to eat and drink in Denia, I would recommend you either take a bus or a taxi (about 18 euros).
The list of places to eat, drink, dance or take walks in this area is endless. There is every type of water sport available.
I cannot recommend it highly enough. The owner was extremely helpful and flexible on dates etc. The villa was lovely with every facility. The pool area is perfect and is was quite hard to make a decision where to sit and eat at the villa. There are at least four lovely areas in the villa's garden to do this.
Owner's Response: It sounds like a months stay at our villa wasn't enough?! A lovely review - thank you for sharing your holiday experiences and you are all welcome back anytime.
