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.

We, (4 adults), enjoyed a fantastic week mid September with hot daytime temperatures. It was a pleasure to dine on the veranda in the evenings and enjoy a chilled glass of wine. Fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed regular cooling dips in the generously sized pool, followed by further relaxation on sun loungers close by. The garden grounds were substantial and we did pick a couple of lemons from the trees to slice for our G & Ts. The accommodation inside the villa was perfect for our group with large bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we required to cook and cater for ourselves. The fridge with ice dispenser was particularly appreciated. We enjoyed the adventure of identifying which switches operated what lights and came to terms with them fairly quickly. 😃򐰊 We successfully shopped for all our provisions in the local villages, despite our poor grasp of Spanish, and found that prices were very, very reasonable. All in all we had a wonderful holiday, thoroughly relaxing, and even experienced a night time storm with lightening over the mountains which was spectacular. For a chilling, relaxing holiday away for the hustle and bustle of typical tourist areas, I would highly recommend this property. Thanks to Alan for his help before and during our holiday. We were able to have a late check out as we had late flights so that was really useful.

It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and we were delighted to find that it was spacious, light and airy. It has everything you need for a great holiday! We spent most of our time outside - the pool is lovely and the area around it is perfect for sunbathing, but there's covered areas for when we needed some shade. Eating outside is a holiday treat, and with several seated areas to chose from, we had the perfect place with sun or shade depending on our mood. One highlight was the lovely neighbours! Jim in the villa opposite was really helpful, and Graham who manages the villa, was very kind and warm, bent over backwards to be helpful at all times. We will definitely go back!

An ideal accommodation for large numbers. We had plenty of space to enjoy and relax. The wonderful views are because of its location at the top of a steep hill, therefore a car is a necessity. The immediate area was closing down for the season so I would not recommend arriving any later.
