We first came to Javea in 1987, when Barry’s Mum and Dad decided to retire here and immediately fell in love with the area – a real jewel of the Spanish Costas.
We have holidayed here ever since and in 2002 we decided to buy the apartments.
We chose the apartments to make the most of two of the three very different areas of Javea – Mont Salonica being just 200m from the now famous Arenal beach, with its glorious pristine sands, palm trees and safe bathing and Puerto Real again just 200m walk to the sea front and the working fishing port and many bars and restaurants.
Javea is in the north of Alicante province, between Cabo San Antonio and Cabo La Nao. 1 hour drive north of Alicante airport and 1 hour south of Valencia airport. The town comprises three main areas – the old town, the fishing harbour/port and the Arenal. The wooded hills behind the beach and town hide the beautiful residential areas. In 1986 the World Health Organisation recommended the climate in this area as one of the most equitable in the world – neither too hot in the summer nor too cold in the winter. Javea enjoys a typical subtropical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in the summer and mild temperatures in the winter. The region averages about 3,000 hours of sunshine per year (about 325 days per year) and the average temperature is more than 20 degrees Centigrade. About 35 minutes away by car you have the fantastic Spanish theme park called Terra Mitica which is well worth a visit boasting the largest wooden roller coaster in Europe and numerous themed rides. You also have Aqualandia Water Theme Park and Mundomar Animal and Sea World – all great places to visit for adults and children alike which is just a 40 minute car ride away.
We do hope you find all the information you need, but please feel free to contact us for any further information you require.
