Jalon Valley Villa

Villa Jalon Valley- so where's best to visit?

The Villa is situated in the beautiful entrance to the Jalon Valley, the surrounding area is mountainous with picturesque walks & drives, unspoiled Spanish villages and numerous orange, lemon olive and almond groves. It is possible to find a local market offering fresh local produce most every day.

For your provisions there is a small Mase Mas in Pedreguer, on the road to Gata de Gorgos. They keep all the essentials but their bigger branch on the N332 has a much greater choice. Fruit and vegetables are really cheap and so is bread, cheese and pate.

There is a market in Pedreguer town centre on Saturday.

Alcalali is well worth a visit, with its choice of 5 or 6 popular restaurants it is a major attraction from miles around but retains its Spanish character.

As you drive into Alcalali, the first restaurant is Pepe's, our favourite and the most Spanish. It gets very busy in the evenings and it pays to book, especially if you want to eat outside.
They are closed on Mondays but open for the rest of the week between 12:45-15:30 and 19:00-23:30. The telephone No is provided in the villa.

Further up into the Jalon mountains, along scenic winding roads are smaller villages with restaurants, often nestled in the midst of unspoilt Spanish countryside with terraced hillsides. 

Along the coast many seaside towns with waterside promenades have shops, cafes and restaurants. The area is not very touristy and remains authentic.

Lunchtime is the time when the locals have their main meal, so this is the cheapest time to eat out.  Every restaurant will have a 'menu del via' offering fantastic value for money - menu of the day.

 

For something different, catch the train on the Lemon Tree Line, which follows the coastline down to Alicante. Alternatively, take the short drive to the local station and take the train to Valencia.  Valencia is a fantastic city, having been influenced by many different cultures over the centuries.

The closest nice beach Javea. Javea has two parts. Firstly, the trendy beach and promenade. Find somewhere to park and walk through to a very nice beach. However, it is very popular and can be crowded. Along the promenade are lots of restaurants over looking the beach. Sit here for a meal or a drink and indulge in a little people watching. You may need to book a place in these restaurants, especially at lunch time.

Second part of Javea is the old town.  Follow signs to the port. It is at the opposite end to the trendy beach.

Moraira - This is one of our favourite places. A nice little town with pedestrian main street and a nice beach. Park in the big car park just as you come into the town. Walk down to the front. Turn to the right for the beach or to the left for the marina. Along by the Marina are several restaurants and tapas bars.

El Portet - A very small bay just along side Moraira, you will find signs on one of the roundabouts. Nice promenade dining for Tapas and special views. Parking here is limited but well worth a visit or a swim.
