Xativa is a great town to go to. Very Spanish so take your phrase book. Soak up the history of the “ Old Town and Castle”. The market however was a dissapointment.
If you are up for driving there are some great beaches not that far. Denia and Javea is certainly worth a visit.
The villa is well equipped. You will want for nothing in the kitchen. It has every conceivable appliance-although a bit small. Bear in mind though there is a large paella house outside and a good size BBQ if that is where you would prefer to cook.
We spent many an evening on the veranda looking over the mountains. We never got board with the views.
The garden area and pool was also a place to while away some time. With the paella house having a fridge it was not too much of a journey to get your cold drinks.
The lounge was very comfortable and homely. Plenty to read and games to play.
Just a couple of criticism.p It would be beneficial to have WiFi today as we all, or most, rely on our gadgets.
Claire and Tommy were always at the end of a phone should there have been any issues.
Lovely and remote in a rural environment. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the views are spectacular. We enjoyed day trips to Valencia and Altea and smaller towns. Some days we never left (other than for a loaf of bread) Ricardo is an interested and interesting host, with lots of useful knowledge. Celestena the real owner of the property (a very friendly dog) gave us a lot of attention and we enjoyed walking her among the olive terraces.
