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.

The villa is lovely and spacious and having three bathrooms is a bonus. The pool is fantastic and regularly maintained and there's plenty of sunbeds etc., as well as a built in bbq. The villa is in a good location (quiet residential) not far from town and with amazing views. A good choice for families or couples (we visited with family in October last year and as a couple in March this year). There are a number of steps up to the property so probably not suited to less able bodied people. All in all a good base to stay with all facilities you need and close enough to Valencia, Calpe, Benidorm etc. for day trips. The town has a supermarket, butchers, bakers, and other shops and there are plenty of places to eat. Its easy to reach from Alicante airport using the toll road and the directions given by the owner are spot on.
