Make a holiday rental house or villa in the Jalon Valley, Spain your home away from home

Situated on the Cap de Nao Peninsula in the northern Costa Blanca, the Jalon Valley follows the Jalon River inland from the Mediterranean Coast between Javea and Denia. This is an unspoilt region of Spain where the dramatic mountain landscape and peaceful little towns seem miles from the bustle of the coast, yet Jalon Valley villas are within a few miles of the Costa Blanca. Walking holidays to the Jalon Valley are hugely rewarding and very popular, especially when taking advantage of the holiday accommodation available for rent here.

Everything you could possibly need is there. All is as described if not better. The villa has great outdoor/indoor space, a lovely peaceful setting a real home from home. A 10 minute walk to a lovely beach area and restaurants. We recommend the Olive Tree at the bottom of the road, fantastic value and amazing food, if you want an amazing sea view, we recommend the El Chamizo again a 10 minute walk but you need to book both, well worth it. Thanks Joan and John for making our Anniversary so special.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The apartment is small but perfect, and extremely well equipped. It is immaculately presented and when we visited the weather was extremely hot even for Southern Spain. The excellent air conditioning meant we stayed cool and comfortable every night. Jim and Nadine could not have been more friendly and helpful and ensured we had a wonderful time, I cant recommend this apartment enough.
