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.

Places to holiday in the Jalon Valley, Spain

The town of Jalon is a laid back, lively town where good food and fine crafts are important. Life in a Jalon villa will revolve around the ‘Old Square’ marked by the imposing dome of the stunning Church of Santa Maria. The Old Square in Jalon is home to the weekly market, and from here, the small winding roads open for you to discover restaurants serving the best of local produce. Jalon is a town which enjoys its fiestas. During the fiestas of the Romero, Santa Domingo and Virgin Pobre, Jalon villas take on a new feeling, and the great open air market each Saturday draws bargain hunters from miles around.

Alcalali is a beautiful village hidden by the almond blossom in spring. It is a great base for talking the walks around the Cavall Verd Mountain, scenic routes to L’Altar or fascinating trip to the prehistoric caves of Xalo. In the centre of the village stands the medieval tower, which now houses the village’s museum, documenting Alcalali’s history.

Parcent is further into the Jalon Valley, famed for its wine and weekly markets. Characterised by the beautiful church which stands at the centre of the village, Parcent is a peaceful village surrounded by beautiful views and excellent walking. The beaches of the Costa Blanca are not far, and Parcent has been regularly described as the ‘paradise between the mountains’.

The restaurants in Jalon serve many sausage dishes, which have become famous in Spain. Washed down with a sweet local red wine, the exotically cooked sausage serves the ideal companion to a long day in the sun.

The caves of Les Maravelles and the fountain of La Bassa dels Arcs are also well worth the sometimes strenuous walk, although both these attractions can be reached by car for the less adventurous!

Sporting activities in Jalon include extensive walking, horse and donkey riding, mountain hiking and golf 12km from the centre of Jalon centre. The water parks and Safari Park of the Costa Blanca are within an hours drive if children need to be entertained on a family holiday to a Jalon Valley rental.

Excellent in every way!

5 of 5
Perfectly located within a short walk to the local beach and a range of bars and restaurants. 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.

Very Good.

4 of 5
Very good location and excellent views. My wife and I know the apartment block from many years ago and it is still the same albeit modernised to some extent. The apartment itself needs the balcony doors looked at because they don't lock properly but apart from that really nice. The location is ideal because it is 1 minute walk to the beach, close to bars. , restaurants and shops but very quiet in the evening. I think the surrounding buildings block the noise. I would definitely stay here again
