Alcalali, Valencian Country, Spain
Additional Location Information
The village centre of Alcalalí is 10 minutes walk away. The attractive village square is overlooked by the lovely old church and a medieval tower. The 3 bars that look onto the square are pleasant places to enjoy a relaxed drink or partake of their reasonably priced meals. The village has other bars, small supermarkets with butchery, bakers, pharmacy etc. A number of restaurants are also within easy reach. Alcalali holds its village fiestas in late June (San Juan) and August and are a must see if you are here at the time. The fiestas involve religious processions, nightly music and a firework display. Usually in July and August weekly open air Mariachi evenings are put on in the pretty grounds of a local estate on the edge of the village, again a must see if you are around.
Other villages in the Jalon Valley are also worth a visit. In particular Jalon has a Saturday Rastro (non food market) which is 0.5km long alongside the river and a street market on Tuesdays, full of fresh local produce. It also has a medium sized supermarket with excellent fresh fish. Parcent is five minutes away which is a pretty hilltop village. In April and May the Iris Gardens at Pinos are delightful.
There are a number of bodegas in the valley ranging from the extremely popular Cooperativa in Jalon offering free tastings of their wines to one in Parcent with quality wines costing up to hundreds of euros a bottle. Benissa (20 mins drive) has large supermarkets such as Iceland, Mercadona and Lidl.
Alcalali is located on the edge of the Marina Alta mountains. There are excellent drives through these mountains and valleys with many small villages, restaurants and bars. Out of season there are also many excellent walks and in spring the wild flowers and blossoms are a delight. The Marina Alta mountains are becoming increasingly popular as an autumn, winter or spring walking destination offering the possibility of enjoying superb walking in comfortable temperatures when conditions in Northern Europe are less than inviting. Walks range from pretty valley strolls (some from the front door of the apartment) to 4,500 foot rugged mountain rock scrambles and spectacular ridge walks. A number of maps and walking guide books are provided in the apartment for the use of clients.
The resorts and extensive beaches of Calpe, Javea, Denia and Moraira are about 30 minutes drive away, the theme / water parks of Terra Mitica, Natura Park, Aqualandia and Mundomar are about 40 mins drive.
Just over an hour’s drive away is historic Valencia which holds the famous Fallas fiestas in March where enormous paper-mache effigies are constructed and judged before all except the winners are burned on St Joseph’s night (19th March). More locally and 20 minutes drive away Denia holds its own smaller scale but non-the-less spectacular fallas on the same date. At various dates in the year many towns hold Moors & Christians fiestas. Benissa, Denia, Calpe, Moraira and Javea being popular.
Alicante and Valencia airports are each 1 hour 15 minutes drive away. A car is highly recommended to enjoy the area to the full.
