Jackie is a gracious and welcoming hostess and the apartment is a great little base from which to explore. This is a small apartment underneath Jackie's lovely villa, 10 minutes in the car from Moraira (nice fishing village) and c15 minutes from Calpe (not our scene!).
There are 3 restaurants within easy walking distance. Los Pepes (great drinks but we did not enjoy the food), the beach bar at Cala Advocat (a little OTT for us - we didn't eat there) and the one across the road (La Buena Vida - food was lovely but there was not much of it!)
There is a beach bar at Baladrar and the food there was OK. We had a good Chinese in the Happy Garden; most nights we chilled in the outdoor kitchen and had a BBQ which was great.
We visited Benissa Old Town - not much to see or do apart from the church which is spectacular (we are not religious but we do like a wander). The highlight for us was Javea (Xabia) - GO! Lovely little seaside resort and a nice cobbled old town with tapas bars and restaurants; there is also a marina and it all has some lovely shops. Denia was not so good and we wouldn't go back there!
All in all, we were totally chilled at Jackie's place - we even got to have a cwtch with the terrorists, Kyle and Kylie (aka Jackie's indoor pussy cats) which made me very much at home as I was missing my furbies! A great relaxing week and a beautiful pool which had the sun till about 8.30 (early May). Thank you! xxx
