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 pool was still closed when we were there which was a shame but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Flat is well equipped for self catering and place is clean. You'll definitely need a car and Valencia centre is a approx 25-30 minute drive away. Thanks to the hosts. Everything was clear and straightforward. Lots of space and amazing balcony views. Highly recommended.

The villa is even better in real life than it looks in the photos - it is so well equipped and lovely and clean throughout. The hot tub was brilliant and we were lucky enough to be able to enjoy freshly squeezed orange juice with oranges picked from a tree in the garden! Alberto was an amazing host, he helped me sort out a minibus for trips and was there when we arrived to show us around. We had an amazing weekend and a lot of the girls were already looking at rebooking to come back in the summer! I would not hesistafe to recommend this villa and Alberto as a host. We will be back!
