Casa Silvia is located between the coastal towns of Javea and Moraira in the province of Alicante and close to the smaller inland town of Benitachell. Javea and Moraira have busy sandy beaches and bustling promenades. Javea beach (the Arenal) is the larger and Javea also has two other distinct areas; the Port and the Old Town. Moraira is more compact.
Most visitors arrive via Alicante airport 65 mins south. There are some flights from the UK to Valencia at 82 mins north. All driving times on this website are from the AA Route Planner.
Valencia (pop:790k) is the third largest city in Spain. Its many attractions include the City of Arts and Sciences, an architecturally futuristic science park complex, which also boasts a vast aquarium: the Oceanografic. The fabulously restored Central Market is well worth visiting as is the Gothic Cathedral, said to house the Holy Grail.
Closer to home, the town of Denia is 31 minutes north either via the eastern side of Javea’s famous Montgo mountain or via the mountainous corniche on the coastal side. Denia is a larger urban centre than Javea or Moraira with a more Spanish feel. To the south are the tourist seaside towns of Calpe (28 mins), Altea (32 mins) and of course the hugely popular British favourite high-rise resort of Benidorm (35 mins).
Inland are traditional towns like Gata de Gorgos (18 mins) and Jalon (26 mins) and the rugged landscape of the Sierra Bernia mountain range.
There are about 500 restaurants covering most cuisines and budgets in Javea, Moraira and the surrounding area.
On our home page we mentioned golf, cycling, walking and lawn bowls as popular activities in our area. Another great attraction is of course the beach at Javea (Playa Arenal) and the smaller Moraira beach. The bays and coast are popular with sun-worshippers and offer great access to water-based adventures and sports such as surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkelling, diving, jet-skiing and sailing.
