The Costa Blanca enjoys a milder climate than southern Spain, and even at the height of summer temperatures rarely reach 35ºC. Good weather in summer is almost guaranteed as rain in this season is infrequent. It is a fertile land, and orange and almond groves are a common sight.
Denia is a resort on the Costa Blanca where we have villas set in the countryside and some apartments by the sea. It is an old castle town with a shady tree-lined main street where you can shop and then eat in tapas bars or restaurants. Just off from this street there is even an Irish bar if you like Guinness! The beach stretches from Las Rotas up the coast to Las Marinas.
Javea has long been a favourite resort. It is very pretty and is made up of the Arenal, the port and the old town. The Arenal has a long sandy beach with many restaurants and bars, and on the beach it is possible to rent sunloungers and parasols. The port has many shops and pavement cafes overlooking the sea. The old town with its local bars and narrow streets is also worth visiting. Most of our villas in Javea are set in the surrounding hills or close to the golf course. There are many coves on this stretch of the Costa Blanca ideal for snorkling or crab hunting! For shopping there are two large Mercadona supermarkets and several other smaller supermarkets all offering a wide selection of fruits, vegetables, meat and fresh local fish. On Thursdays, an alternative to supermarket shopping is the colourful local market.
La Xara is a village about 2 kilometres outside of Denia, and here is where you can find the Vacation Villa office in Avda del Oeste. We are open from 10 am until 2 pm and we can always be contacted on our mobile phones. The village has a tobacconist, bars, restaurants and Kellys, a shop where you can purchase mobile phones, greeting cards in English, bed linen and gifts.
