About Lucy Jennings

We love this unspoilt part of Spain and we chose the area specifically so that our children would experience both the true Spanish culture and the country living of the mountains and forests. We are close enough to the best local beaches to be on the sand within a 15 minute drive but we love being away from the crowds, in the quiet pine forest and under the stars. We also like to easy access to Valencia and the broad range of Mountain activities on offer. Oh yes, and the food and wine!

Lucy Jennings purchased this villa in 2010

Car: necessary

The villa is located on a mountainside and at the edge of a pine forest, overlooking orange groves. There are just 12 houses on the road, providing a quiet location with stunning mountain views of the La Safor National Park.

La Safor is famous for outdoor pursuits and is a highly popular destination for climbers, hikers and cyclists.

The mountain top village of Barx is within a 5 minute drive of the villa. This pretty little village is a popular stop for cycling teams and village square has lots of bars and good value restaurants together with a choice of supermarkets, bakeries, butchers and pharmacies.There is a small weekly market and many fiesta's throughout the year.

The large town of Gandia is just a 15 minute drive and offers more cosmopolitan shopping, together with a huge Carrefour Hypermarket. The town centre has a wide choice of restaurants, bars and nightlife. There is a full yearly program of events and fiesta's including the spectacular Fallas and Easter celebration.

From Gandia Town there is a reliable train service to the beautiful city centre of Valencia, with excellent parks and museums, an amazing aquarium, covered food market and great shopping. The city often comes as a surprise to visitors who liken it to Barcelona.

Gandia beach is just a 15 minute drive and has an award winning Blue Flag status. The resort is hugely popular with the Spanish and the beach is regarded as one of the best within the Costa Blanca area, with lots of quality restaurants, a large marina and a succession of bars on the beach itself. There is jet-ski hire, a surf and sailing school, life guard patrol, bike hire and several nightclubs.

The Albufera National Park sits between Valencia and Gandia and boasts the largest lake in the province. Here visitors can see incredible wildlife and enjoy relaxing boat trips.

Gandia is located within easy reach of the other resorts of the Costa Blanca including Denia, Javea and Calpe. The water parks and themeparks of Benidorm are also within a 30 minute drive. There are many smaller cove beaches in the area, which may not have as many facilities but can be much quieter during the busy Summer months.

The interior of the Valencia province is well worth exploring, including the natural fonts and lakes for swimming and fishing, including the Fonts Pou Clar in Ontinyent.

Great Villa!!!

We had a great stay here and really loved the pool. The wood oven was fantastic for our 'Pizza Night'.

Thank you Lucy for all your useful advice.

We have been here many times and it just gets better and better. The pool refurbishment is great. We love the villa and the beautiful surrounding areas. We will keep coming back and only have five star things to say about this place.
