Recommended Pool Pets Welcome Walk to Beach

In an elevated position right by the water’s edge, Castillo de Arena provides the perfect introduction to the Costa Blanca town of Villajoyosa. Featuring impressive outdoor spaces and welcoming interiors, this three-bedroom villa has its magnificent pool overlooking the ocean and offers direct access to the beach.

You can relax on the terrace with the Mediterranean in full view at Castillo de Arena, where a charming dining area and a large stone barbecue oven can be found. There’s plenty of seating and sun loungers around the pool area, including covered areas when you want a little shade.

There’s a warm, homely feel to the inside of the house, with wooden beams and chunky furnishings adding an element of rusticity to the dining and living spaces. There is a natural feel throughout, with a lot of wood and stone used, while some exciting antiques and artworks add character to the areas.

You have high-quality appliances including a large oven in the spacious kitchen, along with more places to dine, including a breakfast bar. The house contains three air-conditioned bedrooms and two bathrooms over two floors, offering accommodation for up to six guests. There’s also a gym for those early morning workouts. The villa is well equipped with Wi-Fi, satellite TV and a safe and offers parking for two cars.

The town of Villajoyosa is large enough to provide everything you could need, and lies between the sea and the mountains – at some points, you have a great view of both at the same time. A long white sand beach is there to tempt you, along with a pretty Old Town and a range of great restaurants, many of them down on the beachfront.

From there, you can head north to Benidorm, Altea or Calpe, or south towards Alicante – made very easy by the coastal tram service which passes through Villajoyosa. With a host of water and wildlife parks and natural wonders like the Canelobre Caves to visit, there are always adventures to be had in this beautiful region.

Villajoyosa is a traditional Spanish town on the Costa Blanca, a short distance from Benidorm but lesser-known as a visitor destination. It is recognisable by the many coloured houses which face its long and wide beach, providing a contrast to the 3km clean, white sands in front of them.

The original purpose of this vibrant decoration was to help guide fishers home, as what is now a relatively large town was once a small fishing village – and it is still a big part of life in Villajoyosa today.

The reliably mild climate makes Villajoyosa an attractive place to stay all year-round, and its position between the sea and the mountains give it some scenic spots.

The Old Town is particularly pleasant to potter around, with landmarks worth noting including the 16th-century watchtower and Roman bridges. You are likely to come across the daily fish market, which provides the ideal opportunity to sample the local catch.

Another place to get to know the town’s history is at the small but exciting Vilamuseu, a museum right in the heart of the city. Perhaps the town’s best-known visitor attraction is its chocolate museum – the reason for its existence is that one of Spain’s most famous chocolate brands, Valor, is based in Villajoyosa, and the museum gives you the opportunity to see how it’s made.

A local diving centre and tennis club are among the sporting diversions on offer in Villajoyosa, and its position on the tram line running from Alicante to Dénia means you can quickly go exploring.

It’s easy to forget that nearby Benidorm was just a small fishing village itself until as recently as the 1960s, and many of its attractions have a watery element – the Aqualandia and Terra Mitica theme parks are popular family choices.

Further south, Alicante is a rewarding city filled with attractive parks, plazas and beaches. When you visit, you could also take a boat trip out to the beautiful island of Tabarca, less than an hour away and wonderfully unspoilt.

Costa Blanca is famous for the ‘Brits Abroad’ culture, and it’s understandable why it attracts such crowds throughout the summer months. Guaranteed weather, world-class beaches, tons of family facilities and bumpin’ nightlife is a recipe in popularity. Why not experience a different side of Costa Blanca with a villa holiday?

Behind the crowds on the tourist beaches lie incredible mountains, hidden coves, vineyards and ancient villages that have yet to be discovered. You’ll also find some seriously swanky eateries and luscious spa experiences if you’re all about kicking back in luxury.

Best Suited For: All Ages

The whole family will love the outdoor lifestyle which Castillo de Arena encourages. You have the most magnificent terraces with a large barbecue and pool, made all the more special by the incredible location. Children will appreciate that they only need to run down the stone steps from the villa to be on the beach in seconds.

The local area is made for young visitors, with tons of exciting adventures at the likes of Aqualandia, Terra Natura and Mundomar, where there are dolphins, seals and exotic birds to see. In Villajoyosa, you have lovely parks to chill out in, a beautiful beach and, of course, the town’s chocolate museum.

Benidorm offers activities like go-karting, ten-pin bowling and, for the youngest, the KidZone indoor playground, while the Festi Landia theme park has all the rides and games of a traditional fun fair.

The sightseeing train is an excellent way to present the local area, and if you’re happy to travel a little further, you could head to DinoPark or the beautiful caves of Canelobre – either one makes for a thrilling day out.
