About the property

Everything is available here for a perfect holiday.

Javea is a popular tourist destination, with Alicante and Valencia airports only an hours drive away. Set in the old Pueblo of Javea, the town house, even though around 500 years old it has been restored sympathetically to reflect its original form.

It is set on three floors, as you walk in on the ground floor there is a kitchen with dining area, then a quiet area with sofa and internet point, shower room, with a light well that goes up through the house to a sky light on the terrace. On the middle floor there are two double bedrooms and a twin with low ceiling ideal for children! There is also a full bathroom. The top floor is a comfortable open plan sitting room with French Doors opening out on to the roof terrace, TV and DVD player. This gorgeous house can sleep up to 6 people comfortably.

It is situated on the Old Town, with a charming olde world atmosphere. Full of interesting corners, from the “Tapas” bars and fantastic range of restaurants to the museum and the old fortified church, which dominates the village, it’s all right on your doorstep. The port is just 2 km down the road, with it’s beautiful harbour, pebbly beach and charming promenade and 3.3 km further up the coast is the beautiful sandy cove of the Arenal, with a range of bars and restaurants to make your mouth water.

There are many options for outdoor activities, beautiful inland villages offering hiking and many other possibilities. The Montgo Mountain and Valleys that form the beautiful backdrop to Javea have some of the most stunning “vistas” imaginable and create a wonderful microclimate. According to the World Health Organisation, Javea is one of the healthiest places to live and considered to be on of the sunniest places in Spain!

The house is available to rent from just £500 per week. Contact me for availability

About Paul Bramley-Moore

Born in the Forest of Dean. A trained Carpenter and general builder. After restoring many houses in the U.K. bought this house as a dilapidated semi ruin in 2001, spent 7 years doing it up in a sympathetic manner to suit it´s history and surroundings. I recently moved back to Cheltenham to work on an old georgian house and would hope to ultimately retire back over here.

Paul Bramley-Moore purchased this house in 2001

Why Paul Bramley-Moore chose Jávea

The Old Town of Javea where you can wander down ancient narrow streets and visit the local market on a Thursday. Built with original Tosca sandstone it’s rich in medieval history.

The Gothic fortified church of San Bartolome dominates the centre of Javea’s town. This building dates back to the 15th century. At the side of the church is a beautiful building which houses the indoor market where you can buy local fresh produce daily.

The streets in the old town of Javea are worth exploring with the fortified Gothic church (San Bartolome) and a very interesting museum (Museo Etnografico ‘Soler Blasco’) which explains the history of the coast from Palaeolithic times through Iberian, Roman and Medieval times.

In 1244, King Jamie claimed Javea back from the Moors. In the 14th century, King Jamie II built a further fortress and the town’s walls along the streets of Maria Gallard, Primicies, Major and Roques.

In the 15th century an economic recovery with an increase in population began. This improvement of wealth is reflected in building habits with many new streets built and the city gates constructed.

Javea’s population significantly increased and drew the attention of the Barbarians. As a consequence, fortresses and churches were built, including the church Eglesia de Sant Bertomeu (San Bartolome).

During the early 1500’s plague was prevalent in Javea and the town’s hospital was built. All that is now left of this hospital is the Capella de Santa Anna.

In the 18th century Javea participated in the succession war on the side of the Bourbon and gained a number of privileges. In addition to numerous honorary titles, Javea received permission to build a harbour from which it was able to export fruit to other countries. A trade which began with raisins and then extended to wheat, grapes, bread and olives.

From the second half of the 19th century onwards, the manufacturing process and export of raisins became the major industry.

What makes this house unique

Javea (also known as Xabia) is a gem of a town situated on the Northern Costa Blanca.

It’s rugged coastline is indented with secluded coves and sandy beaches. These hidden caves and bays were once used by pirates and smugglers in the Middle Ages but are now used by sunbathers, snorklers and scuba divers.

Javea is situated on the most easterly point of mainland Spain about 100 kms from Valencia and 90 kms from Alicante.

Javea has been voted environmentally near perfect by the World Health Organisation and boasts 320 days of sunshine a year.

New building developments in Javea are subject to height restrictions which mean there are no high-rise buildings unlike in other Costa Blanca towns such as Calpe or Benidorm.

Many would argue Javea is the finest place on the whole Costa Blanca. We wouldn’t argue too strongly against this.

The Arenal is very good for families. The beach is large and very wide. The water is very shallow and calm as it is in a sheltered bay. You can easily sit in a cafe or bar and be able to see your children. Generally Spain is very family-orientated and you can feel much more relaxed about your kids safety than you would anywhere else.

Many people’s favourite area of Javea this has a fascinating charm factor hard to define. Whitewashed houses surround the bay. Watch the fishermen bring in their fresh catches or watch the sailing boats set off from the marina. Eat at the fantastic seafood restaurants.

There are also many good shops, bars and cafes – it’s bustling with activity.

The Port area of Javea has a real Spanish feel, this is an area where locals live and work in harmony with the tourist elements. It is a lively bustling area with many shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.

The landmark of the Port area is the church of Our Lady of Loreto with a roof which imitates the hull of a ship.

This is the place where you can eat tapas, paella but also fish and chips and English breakfast.

We had a great time here. The roof terrace is lovely and peaceful and we had everything we needed. The property is a stones throw from the market and lots of lovely restaurants and bars. Javea was fantastic, outstanding food and every local person we met was very helpful. We'll be back.
