Bunol, Valencia - The real Spain

Bunol- This is the real Spain, the landscape here is varied and rich. Along the eastern side of the district the terrain is gently sloping and undulating, with golden and reddish soils, alternating with market gardens and hilltops cloaked in vineyards. The more westerly parts present hillier terrain, with peaks rising higher and higher, with the scenery getting greener and more lush, the mountains are covered in wild rosemary and thyme.

Up high in the mountains, this is where you can see soaring eagles and sparrow hawks amongst other birds, nature lovers will love these areas for walking, cycling, rock-climbing, bird watching and fishing.

In addition to its natural attractions it also offers a great fiesta season in August. Most of the attractions being in the last 2 weeks of August, they have large open-air concerts, paella competitions, a fantastic street parade which finishes with a terrific fire works display, but the main event that Bunol is famous for is the Tomatina, the local tomato throwing festival. This fiesta started in a casual way in 1945 and has now become an enormous tomato battle involving the locals and some 30 thousand tourists. I have been to this event 3 times, and there is nothing that will prepare you for what you will experience over that hour, amazing, the locals will spray you with water from the roofs tops, to try to cool you down, and you are very grateful that they do!!!! It’s a whole lot of fun. (Not recommended for small children.)

For those visitors not into Tomato throwing, there is some excellent Spanish cuisine on offer, one restaurant goes back 300 years to the coaching inns days, Venta Pilar, this restaurant is mentioned in, The Late Dinner book, by Paul Richardson, for authentic traditional paella cooked over a wood fire, and still is today.

Bunol has a lot to offer the tourist that wants a taste of the real Spain, and the locals will make them very welcome.

Peaceful and quiet, away from it all in the countryside

4 of 5
A well-equipped and comfortable villa, providing us with all we required for a quiet and relaxing 2 weeks. There was just 2 of us on this occasion, however the villa does offer good accommodation and space for a family. Although the villa gets the sun all day most days there was a pleasant breeze blowing in from the sea. As per the previous review a car really is essential (Valencia and Cullera seafronts approx. 40 mins & 60mins). We did have an issue with the pool on our arrival – it was only about 2/3rds full of water!! Clearly it had not been cleaned and prepared prior to our arrival. Full credit however to the owners as communication with them was very good and the issue was sorted out. The pool was regularly cleaned and maintained during the remainder of our stay and was thoroughly enjoyed every day. The owners offered to refund our first night as a gesture of goodwill. Two and half weeks on from our return home and this has not happened! Would however consider another holiday at the villa.

Beautiful villa and very private

5 of 5
The villa was immaculate when we arrived and the owner Mari-Cruz was extremely helpful during our stay. Lovely size villa for a group of six friends. The boys enjoyed the games room and basketball, and the pool area was perfect for relaxing in the sun. Leliana was a short walk away and carrefour nearby. Would definitely stay here again.
