We took some time to compose this but Sept 2012 saw us return for the third time to La Roqueta. Its such a fabulous tranquil place to spend time. We visited Gandia, Xativa and a number of other places we missed in previous years. The people of Ontinyent are so friendly and keen to help, from the supermarkets to the local cycle shop. We went for a meal in a local pizzeria which we had visited the year before and the owner rememberedus, and asked so many questions about home. us. Alan and Jeanette gave us lots of tips on places to visit and told us of the new Vidal supermarket which had opened, its huge and stocks everything, the place to go if you are self catering, the prices are just incredible and the fresh fruit and vegetables taste amazing. The local market in Ontinyent is well worth a visit, not just dor the food but for the clothes on offer at unbeatable prices. Took my ipad so I could get the internet and it cost 8 euros from a local store, for a month. Alan and Jeanette stocked up on extra things for us as we emailed them in advance. The neighbours are also starting to recognise us and are so welcoming and friendly. The villa was in tip top condition as usual and trully feels like a real home away from home, so much so, the dogs are so settled there and we have booked to come back for a fourth time this year. If you are looking for a real taste of Spain and a great base to sightsee, get away from it all and travel, then look no further than La Roquetta. You have to experience it to appreciate it.
