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, whilst the apartment contains two bedrooms and two en-suite showers, accommodating up to 10 guests in total. There's also an exercise area for those early morning workouts. The villa is well-equipped with Wi-Fi, satellite TV, 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.


***Please note that the beach in front of the property is a nudist beach.

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. 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.

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.

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.


***Please note that the beach in front of the property is a nudist beach and a quiet tram line passes behind the property.

Reviews

  • Exceptional

    on 10/08/2022

    We were extremely pleased with Castillo de Arena, not only for its incredible views and the quality of its facilities, but also for the treatment given by the staff. We have celebrated every second in a property worth enjoying and that has all the amenities, plus it is a beautiful building. It was like living in a Hollywood neighborhood for a few days and we can't wait for the chance to come back one day. In short, an experience to repeat.

  • Relaxing comfort & quality

    on 10/08/2022

    A dream house, one of those you dream about in the movies. An oasis of peace attached to an area of coves that offers you the possibility of observing spectacular sea landscapes just 50 metres from your bed. Equipped with everything you can imagine to enjoy your free time, the sound system is available throughout the property and controlled from your mobile. If you are a sports lover, it even has equipment for training. If you are more of a quiet person, you can choose between the comfortable sun beds on each of their countless terraces, each with a different atmosphere. You can grill your food by the pool itself or in its amazing indoor kitchen, or make some homemade pizzas in any of the various wood burners it has.

    As for the rest, each of the beds seems to make you feel on a cloud. And all set up with a wide air conditioning system that allows you to visit it both with heat and with cold. The decor deserves to be seen up close, it's something that really needs a while because it will make your eyes pop. In short, a house from the movies to enjoy, which only few houses can offer.
