Travel Guide to Alberic, near Valencia

The small and typically Spanish town of Alberic is ideally placed for easy access to the City of Valencia, and also the beautiful sandy blue flag beaches of the Costa del Azahar and numerous places of interest. The Valencia Region is also a paradise for outdoor sports enthusiasts. With many golf courses nearby, beautiful countryside for walking in, over 20 natural parks, quiet roads for cyclists, lovely areas for mountain biking and horse riding, and within easy reach of the sea for lovers of sailing and water sports, the advantages of this area are many.

Autumn and winter are mild and pleasant, which along with low-season prices, makes it an ideal time to visit this part of the Mediterranean coast. This is especially true for golfers since conditions here are ideal at a time when the weather in Great Britain and northern Europe can be cold, wet or at best unpredictable. The Valencia Region holds an abundance of incredibly well maintained courses to choose from, many designed by world famous course designers and catering for all levels of ability.

40 km from Alberic is Valencia, which offers an unparalleled wealth of interests with its outstanding City of Arts and Sciences, its America's Cup marinas, a brand new Monaco-style grand prix racing circuit, restaurants, nightlife and a myriad of historic, cultural and shopping centres.

Nearer at hand is Xativa, a town steeped in history, with its magnificent castle perched high on the hill and surrounded by herb gardens that perfume the air. Fountains, shaded avenues and fascinating shops make this town a wonderful place to visit.

Alberic itself has a large sports hall, a cinema and a multitude of bars and restaurants, plus a new indoor swimming pool. The town is near the motorway, giving easy access to Valencia and other parts of Spain. There is a frequent train service to Valencia from Alberic, and the nearby town of Alzira offers an even faster service to Valencia, Xativa, and other places of interest. Places to stay in the Alberic area include the community of San Cristobal with its picturesque orange-grove setting and its proximity to the beautiful lake formed by the dam on the Riu Xuquer with its backdrop of mountains. The nearby village of Antella is popular with locals for river swimming and fishing.

Cullera is the nearest beach and has a wonderful water park with attractions to suit all the family, as well as sandy beaches and restaurants. From Cullera toward Valencia is a large fresh water lagoon, the ‘Albufera Nature Reserve’, where over 250 species of birds have been recorded. As well as being the second largest nature reserve in Spain, l’Albufera is renowned for its local restaurants, each trying to outdo each other with the magnificence of its Paella Valenciana.

Each area has its own gastronomic speciality such as nougat (turrón) from Xixona, paella from Valencia, and a sweet spongy bread called Panquemados Monas from Alberic. There are a multitude weekly markets and fiestas throughout the year.

Great villa, exceeding expectations from the pictures. A great space outdoors and indoors

5 of 5
We had a great time as a group of 15 in the villa. With the long tables for dining, the large sofas and many loungers for relaxing, and a decent size pool, it was a great space for us to enjoy for the week. The location was great meaning we could walk to and from the beach, for the day, for sunset drinks and for dinner. With a large cheap.supermarket nearby we were able to self.cater a lot which was great and made use of the fabulous outdoor dining areas. However, kitchen slightly under equipped (chopping boards, etc). Overall a brilliant place to stay and somewhere we would come back to

Fantastic villa- we will be back

5 of 5
The villa was very well equipped. It had everything that was needed for a self catering stay. There is a fantastic kitchen that had everything that would be needed. The owners were generous to leave us some food for our late arrival so we were relaxed about breakfast and immediate things. The pool was fabulous, it was private and such a sun trap. The outside space is well equipped with seating all over the property, in shade or sun. There was a great washing machine which was simple to use and taking the bin out was simple. This was an easy going stay for us, the bedrooms were all provided with very comfy beds and excellent facilities. The bathrooms were brilliant and there were no issues with water, electric etc. The villa felt safe. It is some way up a rocky road but this proved no issue and to have the view at the top was lovely. The communication with the owners was excellent, we were given clear instructions on how to get there and what to do once there. We felt they were very supportive in answering our questions and it made our stay and booking very smooth. We would definitely return to the villa, it is perfect for lazy days by the pool.
