Orba Village: The valley of Orba, from which the village takes its name, has a mild climate, excellent water and is surrounded by orange groves, lemon trees, almonds and of course, olives.

The village has all the facilities you are likely to need, 24 h cash points, 24/7 access to a medical centre, large supermarket, bars and restaurants.
An excellent choice of restaurants can be found in Orba and the surrounding villages, with the nearest bar/restaurant being a short stroll from the villa.
Orba has a small weekly market on Wednesday.
Places to Visit: The Costa Blanca is renowned for its white sandy blue flag beaches and several can be reached from the villa within 20 - 45 min drive. Denia is only a short drive away with its lovely old town, castle, harbour, fishing fleet and lots of super shops, not to mention miles of sand and pebble beaches. Boat trips along the coast are available as are ferries to the Balearic Islands. Javea has a famous stretch of beach called the Arenal lined with cafés, restaurants and shops and golden sands. Sandy beaches stretch from Oliva to Gandia and are very quiet and uncommercialised. Another landmark on the coast is the Penon d'Ifach rock which sticks out into the sea at Calpe.
A 50 min drive away are the famous theme parks of Benidorm, including Terra Mitica, Terra Natura, and Aqualandia Water Park and Wild Life Park.
