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.

The owners live next door in a completely separate home. Raymond and Sabine were both friendly and helpful they even equipped the house with english tv for our stay. you will need a car as it is outside the nearest town but not far. we all enjoyed our stay especially our 13y/o dog

Set in the citrus fruit growing countryside just 20 minutes from the centre of Valencia, it is a haven of quiet and solitude with every conceivable resource on its doorstep, including some great bar restaurants just a couple of kilometres away. The house is clean and spacious with every facility you could hope for, including a well stocked kitchen, to make it a real home from home. There is a range of sports equipment and games for the kids, including a trampoline and a ping pong table but the real star of the show is the beautifully maintained swimming pool which as a clean and roomy sunbathing area. Even in April the weather was gloriously hot. We spent the evenings in the seated decking area, drinking cold beers and watching the sun go down. The property owners could not have been more helpful and were always at the end of a phone to answer all our queries. We couldn't fault this property and plan to return next year.
