An unforgettable week in the Costa Blanca mountains! Each day featured a unique and rewarding trail to run with great company. I cannot wait to return and explore further. The area boasts stunning and diverse terrain, from gorgeous sea cliffs to mountain tops and scree fields, with Abdet firmly squared as the perfect launching point. Tom is a gracious and kind host, providing an experience which satiated both the legs and the belly (delicious dinner feasts each night!) From start to finish, the trip was well-organized, comfortable, and rewarding.
The villa is situated above the charming, sleepy village of `Bolulla and has magnificent views of the Bernia Ridge and distant Mediterranean Sea. Peace and tranquility is guaranteed from this rural, rugged setting, yet the 'hustle and bustle' of the coast is only half an hour away. The outdoor space and pool area is spacious and offers of opportunities to relax in both the sun or shade.
The villa has plenty of space inside for relaxation. A log burning stove certainly provided a focus for warmth during some of the cooler winter weeks which we spent in the villa. The open plan kitchen area is a great asset, allowing for both cooking and socialising at the same time. Hot water in the villa is excellent and readily available. Communication with the owner, a vital factor when planning your holiday, was always prompt and efficient.
Inland for the 'coastal strip' of urban development you will find a wonderful area of rugged mountains, deep gorges and charming villages; contrasting with the high-rise concrete hotels of Calpe and Benidorm. The villa provides a wonderful base in which to explore the area for walking, climbing, cycling or just discovering a new part of Spain. We spent four months 'wintering' at the villa and you will not be disappointed with this hidden gem!
