Jávea (Spanish / international spelling)
Xábia (Valencian spelling)
Jávea is located about midway between Alicante in the south and Valencia in the north, the distance is about 100 km from Valencia and 90 km from Alicante – both cities have international airports and are about 1 – 1,5 hours drive away. Jávea is a relatively large city with approximately 30,000 residents and the surrounding area is widely spread. The residents are friendly and inclusive.
According to the World Health Organization W.H.O. Jávea has one of the world’s best climates. We get on average 326 days of sunshine throughout the year and the most sunshine hours in the whole of Spain. The average temperature is between 18 and 24 degrees.
Jávea is often referred to as Costa Blanca’s jewel. No wonder, because it has one of the most diverse landscapes along the Mediterranean coast! Cliffs and valleys provide beautiful walks and there are several routes to the top of the mountain Montgó (743 m) that offer fantastic views! The summit of Montgo is a favorite destination for hikers.
Jávea consists of 3 distinct areas: The original Jávea, the old town with its narrow streets, the harbor with fishing boats and the Arenal beach.
Between these two coastal areas one can find the beach “La Grava” with its pleasant promenade, bars and restaurants.
The old town in Jávea and the beautiful harbor are important parts of the city’s character. The narrow cobblestone streets have many excellent and modern shops, but has still managed to preserve the original style.
The old town also has lots of excellent and pleasant restaurants, pavement cafes and bars. Galleries, internet cafes and modern shops blend tastefully with the traditional setting. Super charming! Let’s not forget the harbor with the magnificent marina and the lovely promenade.
Jávea’s beaches are great! El Arenal Beach is the most popular, almost one kilometer long with fine sand and palm trees for shade and well-being. Arenal beach is a favorite among tourists and residents alike. The waterfront is packed with bars, restaurants and shopping. In the summer months of July and August the Arenal is transformed into a 24 hour beach and party area. Apart from this period the Arenal is a quiet and peaceful place.
On the outskirts of the town you will find Granadella Beach, this is considered one of Spain’s loveliest bays! Here you can enjoy the beach and the small taverns until evening falls. Further south you’ll find “Cala de la Barraca”, a pebble beach with crystal clear water and “La Isla del Portichol” which is just a few kilometers outside Jávea.
Further south you come to small, hidden coves and beaches, all with an exceptional beauty.
Jávea is beautifully situated between the two viewing point cliffs, Cap de la Nau and Cap de Sant Antonio. You´ll hardly find more spectacular scenery along this coast. Cap de Sant Antonio marks the beginning of the national park Montgó, a popular hiking area. Within a short drive you can be in towns such as Moraira, Pedreguer and Benitaxell as well as some bigger cities such as Denia, Altea, Calpe and Alicante. If you want a large city tour, Valencia is only about 1 – 1,5 hour drive away!
About Villa Perla
We have found our pearl in Jávea, “Villa Perla”. Here we have direct access to all the natural beauty Jávea and its surroundings has to offer.
Villa Perla is located among beautiful orange and olive fields, with scattered villa buildings. The spectacular mountain Montgó looms great in the background.
It takes a mere 15 minutes to walk to the charming old town of Jávea. By bike you can easily get around the area, both on the virtually vehicle free roads as well as slightly busier roads. Motorists around here have a great respect for cyclists compared to many other places.
If you want to go by bike to the Arenal beach or to the charming port El Puerto, you can choose to go through one orange field after another.
For families visiting beaches it’s probably best to get around by car. This also applies when doing grocery shopping. There are many supermarkets to choose from in the area which are only a few minutes drive away. Mercadona and SuperCor are especially nice with a wide range of goods and great fruit, fish and meat counters.
Villa Perla is a large pearl! There is room for many, and we can accommodate large groups for a stay completely undisturbed by others. For group stays we have 11 double rooms with private bathrooms.
We offer a spacious and welcoming tower house as a common area, with a large kitchen, a large livingroom and a rooftop terrace with a stunning view towards the sea and valley, not to mention straight towards the fantastic mountain Montgó.
Outdoors there is a barbecue house including a wood fired pizza oven, a large pool and a children’s pool, sun loungers, a bar serving draft beer, group seating areas and several terraces.
Although Villa Perla offers several lovely areas for your group to enjoy together, we also have some places for tranquility and solitude should anyone need to be alone for awhile.
