This airy Spanish villa in Les Deveses is situated 400m from the beach in a typical "casita" summer area. (we are between Valencia and Alicante - so you can fly to either) On the edge of two municipalities -Denia and Oliva- you are in the town ... but out of town! Only a 10 or 20 minute drive will take you to a range of neighboring towns - all with their own charm, history and traditions. About a 10 minute walk will take you to 20 mile stretch of immaculate sandy beach and crystal Mediterranean waters. The beach in this area has fine sand, and the water has a gradual slope. When the day is windy, there is a whole area set aside for kitesurfing and windsurfing (you can sign up for lessons too!). With the mountains in the distance there are many trails for hiking or mountain biking. The surrounding area is very flat and is great for running, blading or cycling. We are a 15min bike ride, or 10min drive from a sports center where you can pay by class (spinning, yoga, pilates etc), swim or play paddle with no membership necessary: Tonus Sports in the town of Vergel (they also offer summer activities for kids - you can have a break..and they can learn some Spanish!). In the next town over, Els Poblets, there is a huge municipal outdoor pool and it is a great place to hang out at any age. There are also tennis courts you can hire by the hour.
Paralleling the beach runs the road into Denia called Las Marinas - which has a cycling path that takes you almost all the way to downtown. Along there you will find other beach points, beach bars, supermarkets, restaurants ... There is also a bus every hour that takes about 20minutes to get to downtown. In Denia you will find shopping, markets, boat trips, tourist train to visit around and so much more. Within a half hour drive you will find a great water park called Aqualandia (this is a great water park for all ages!), which is right next to Mundomar, and nearby in the same town is TerraMitica, an amusement park. If you are interested in nature day trips we can provide you with a list of places to explore (kid friendly too!): Caves in Benidoleig, The Ravine of the Enchanted, The Rull Cave in Ebo Valley, Jalon Valley, the beauty of Javea, Valencia (Science Center, Aquarium and Gulliver Park to name a few) and the smaller city of Alicante which is equally beautiful ...
Not to mention there is the renowned Oliva Nova Golf up the road from the house (5 minute drive) with the obvious golfing paradise - but they also have a spa! If you like horses, there are various places to hire out to hack - even on the beach! (They also host International Horse Shows at Oliva Nova Golf).
The house is two floors but only the bottom floor is used. You have Spanish summering families on either side and you are on the edge of orange groves and rustic land (perfect for an evening walk). The pool is an above ground pool but more than enough to cool off! It measures 6mx3mx1,20deep. The outdoor shower has hot and cold water. It is an old house but with updated furniture, TV that can be put in original version, DVD with a selection of movies -kids movies too, wifi, garden furniture to relax in the sun or in the shade of Olive trees or to dine on the terrace.
If you have children we have a selection of toys, a high chair etc. just let us know what you might need!
