Description from manager

Lovely valley view to Benitachell. Aircon in bedrooms. Very private pool area. Close to shops, restaurants and beaches. ARRIVE/DEPART ANY DAY.

Situated near the end of a cul-de-sac, Villa Carob is situated in a quiet area of the Calistros residential area. In front of the villa are uninterrupted views across the valley to the pretty hilltop village of Benitachell, where the church is lit at night.

A completely private terrace with sun loungers and parasol surrounds the swimming pool.

The front door opens into the entrance hall off which is the lounge with open plan kitchen. The lounge is comfortably furnished, very bright and features a high beamed ceiling.There is TV with UK Freesat channels. A door from here leads to the sun lounge/dining room. Both the lounge and sun room open out to the extensive terrace by the pool. A parasol offers shade in the summer. There are sunloungers and a table and chairs on the terrace, ideal for relaxing, or al fresco meals. The garden is on several levels, featuring a number of trees, including a magnificent carob tree that gives the villa its name. On one of the lower terraces, just by the pool, is a delightful pergola, perfect for relaxing quietly in the shade. The pergola is furnished with a table and chairs and equipped with a portable barbecue.

Indoors a passage from the entrance hall leads to the bedrooms, shower room and bathroom. The bedrooms are all AIR CONDITIONED. This is included in the rental price July & August 8pm to 10am (Full price bookings only). It is available as an extra out of this period. WI-FI is included.

Wonderful views, day and night, across the valley to Benitachell.

About the area

Villa Carob is technically in the municipality of Benitachell, half-way between MORAIRA and JAVEA. Benitachell (a 15 minute walk away) is a typically Spanish hilltop village, with narrow streets, a covered market, a weekly open market, and plenty of traditional bars frequented in the main by the local people. There is also a modern, very well stocked, supermarket providing everything you need for your holiday, and including fresh fish and meat counters, and a mouth watering selection of local and international cheeses. The lovely beach at Cumbre del Sol is just over the hill from the villa, about 5,5 Kms away. JAVEA is about 10 minutes away by car. This is a much busier resort where there is plenty to do. Shopping, swimming, fishing, golf, tennis etc. There are a number of beaches in Javea, including the sandy Arenal beach with its promenade; the stony Grava beach in the Port area; Granadella and Barraca beaches near to Cabo de la Nao. All the beaches have bars and restaurants, and you can hire sun beds and parasols. Each year Jávea celebrates several fiestas. Ones not to be missed are San Juan, June 18th to 24th, being the main fiesta of the 'old town'. The last night boasts a terrific firework display and the burning of a 'falla'. During July there is the colourful Moors and Christians festival and 1st to 8th September is the Virgen de Loreto, port fiestas. Not to be missed is the last night, 8th September, the firework display is spectacular. MORAIRA is about 10 minutes south of Benitachell. The pretty port area is a great place to wander round, looking at the shops, or perhaps stop for a coffee and watch the world go by. There are a couple of sandy beaches and many rocky coves. Benitachell is situated in the Northern Costa Blanca, just over an hour's drive from Alicante and Valencia airports. Both these airports are extremely well served by scheduled, "no-frills" and charter flights, every day of the week. The Northern Costa Blanca has long been a popular holiday destination for Spaniards and foreigners alike. The area is still famous for its Valencia oranges that are exported all over the world. Within half hour's drive is Benidorm where a fun day out is guaranteed with a visit to Terra Mitica (theme park), Aqualandia (water park), Terra Natura or Mundomar. And in the evening a trip to Benidorm Palace where a spectacular cabaret is performed - not to be missed! Visit Alicante to see the old Castle, or wander around the port. And more locally, enjoy a drive inland to picturesque Guadalest perched high above a lake. The city of Valencia has many monuments well worth a visit and is also a great place to go shopping. And not too far away is Buñol where the world famous 'Tomatina' fiesta is celebrated each year on the last Wednesday of August. It is also possible to visit Barcelona or Madrid by train in a day!

Getting around

By having a hire car you will be able to drive out in to the countryside as well as having the convenience of getting to the local supermarkets etc. Should you choose to explore without the hire car, it is possible to catch a bus to visit Alicante or Valencia for a cultural day out. There is also a local train from nearby villages to Alicante and trains from Gandia or Xeraco to Valencia

Getting here

Fly to Alicante or Valencia airport and hire a car We give detailed directions from the airport to our local office Benitachell is a 90 minute drive from the airports Drive from UK via France or catch the ferry to Bilbao / Santander. Benitachell is an 8 hour drive from Bilbao

Interaction with guest

We are on hand 24/7 and can be visited at our local office (established 1984) during the mornings. We have lived in Jávea over 40 years so know the area better than most. At the villa we provide a comprehensive 'villa book' giving lots of local information should you choose to be more independent.
