What to do – on your door step and 5 minutes away.

Beautiful walks through the neighbourhoodWalk, run, cycle or rock climb the Sierra Calderona nation park. Straight from your door, you can be in the mountains in less than a few minutes.

Or, you can just walk the paths and caminos of the luxury Los Monasterios neighbourhood and connected Alfinach neighbourhood.

If you are a little braver, then walk to the top of Monte Picayo for stunning views towards Sagunto and back towards Valencia.

A little further on, you will find the Capilla or chapel of Monte Picayo, a beautiful refuge of peace and tranquillity. It takes about an hour to walk up to the chapel, but the views are breathtaking. Just avoid the middle of the day, take hats and water.

 

 

If you turn to pick the up famous G7 footpath (from Pucol to Portugal), then you will quickly find the finest rock climbing for beginners in Valencia.

In your garden, you have your own pool – large enough for races, deep enough to dive and warm enough (yes, its heated) to swim from April to November (and a bit longer, if you are from colder climates!).

On your terraces, you can choose where to eat – in fact, change terrace for each meal of the day!

Perhaps you prefer to laze by the pool with a good book?

Oranges from Villa Valencia

Or wander the gardens to smell the flowers and check on our fruit trees – oranges, lemons, pomegranate, apples, apricots as well as almonds and bananas (although we’ve never managed to get anything edible from those last two).

If photography is you thing, then take some time to get beautiful photos – the green of our garden shows up vividly against the red rocks and maroon soil.

If sitting by the pool isn’t your thing, then take to one of the two hammocks strung between the palm trees?

Or maybe you want to gaze across the city of Valenica and La Huerta towards the port and the misty mountains beyond? If so, take a drink to the top terrace and watch the sun go down – or come up. Don’t forget to bring that camera!

Not energetic enough for you? No worries, take the bike down to the village (3k) – take the paths and the ‘quiet route’ and pass the La Costera a special area of ancient olive trees and wonderful rocks.

If taking the bike is too much – just wander through the neighbourhood and out into the orange groves.

If you want more, then why not run to the top of Monte Picayo and then around Gilet and back home again?

If sport really is your thing, then we can arrange for access to the local tennis and padel courts.

Fabulous local food!You can also enjoy lunch or dinner on the club terrace, have a drink and walk home again (we can arrange this for you or, if you really love food, then take a trip to Pucol or Pucol beach or seek out special restaurants and places across La Huerta).
