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.

We stayed there for a week in Sept 17, the apartment had everything we needed, situated in a very secure nice complex with safe underground parking, the location was fantastic, close to a range of bars restaurants, we got the bus to Benidorm one day and the tram/train to nearby altea, we also visited the waterfalls and guadalest, we truly enjoyed our week and would love to come back! Thank you Jean!!
