About the property

Villa in Benitachell, close to Moraira and Javea, Costa Blanca North, Spain

Set in the beautiful hillside area of Cumbre del Sol between Moraira and Javea, the villa is surrounded by unspoilt country and parkland with spectacular views to the sea. The private pool is shared with neighbours but is not a large, crowded communal pool. Invariably we have it to ourselves. There are beaches close by with nearest at 800m. Walking distance to supermarket and excellent restaurant, approx 300m. Many other facilities in local area including horse riding school, climbing, diving and hiking. La Cumbre was part of the Cycle race, La Vuelta a Espagne in 2015 and 2016. It is a very popular area for cycling.

A narrow gauge railway, single-track, running from Denia to Alicante stops at nearby Teulada and at Gata providing a delightful ride to north or south (Denia or Altea, Benidorm and Alicante).

MORAIRA (15 mins drive): Formerly a small fishing village (some of the old parts still remain) which has developed in to a charming, up-market little town retaining a village atmosphere. Small, colourful streets, pavement cafes, a pretty marina, and a wide expanse of sandy beach in a sweeping crescent. Excellent selection of bars and restaurants, a lively shopping area, and a market on Fridays. Just a mile from Moraira is the picturesque bay of EL PORTET with a beach of fine sand ideal for small children. Surrounded by steep hills dotted with villas, it’s a real artists paradise.

BENITACHELL & TEULADA (10 & 15 mins drive): If you want to get the feel of a typical small Spanish town, take a walk around both these places. The narrow streets are full of pretty houses opening directly onto the road, and the colourful market in Teulada is well worth a visit.

JAVEA (20 mins drive) is our nearest large town which has preserved all its charm, and has 3 areas, the unspoilt old town, harbour area and El Arenal with its sandy beach, all areas have an abundance of shops and restaurants.

GATA DE GORGOS is located about 8kms inland from Javea, and is a small town well known for the production of cane goods. The town has many shops which sell cane ware and souvenirs.

CALPE (30 mins drive): This is where the Rock of Ifach is located, which you can see from our villa. There is a footpath up to the top of the rock, which is also a bird & wildlife sanctuary. Also in the town are the Las Salinas salt lakes, where flocks of pink flamingos regularly congregate. Calpe has sandy beaches and a charming fishing port that is renowned for its fresh fish restaurants.

DENIA (30 mins drive): Take the scenic route via the mountain roads of the Montgo National Park. Long sandy beaches, a castle proudly surveying the town & port. The harbour has an important Ferry Terminal serving the Balearic islands and a new impressive modern yacht marina, many harbour-front restaurants, and shady tree-lined avenues full of shops & pavement cafes. An interesting "old quarter" is to be found in the castle area.

Beautiful and Unique Property & Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We had a horrendous journey with the ever Famous EasyJet, so whilst feeling very negative and down in the dumps, it was a delight to arrive at the quaint and pretty house in the beautiful town of Benitachell, it was somewhat of a relief!

It was lovely to arrive to clean and well furnished accommodation.

We then discovered that we obviously had no food/water etc. so we were extremely thankful when we found the local shop only a couple of minutes up the hill.

We decided to sit, relax and enjoy the view on the first evening, followed by a couple of films, which were in HD too!

The two closest towns, Javea and Moraira, have plenty to keep you entertained and a huge amount of restaurants to choose from, and the occasional market too.

We also found the local beach to be a delight, and if you go at a sensible time in the morning, the beach is lovely and quiet.

We Thankyou very much for our wonderful stay and holiday and can't wait to return!

a trekking trail with more coastal paths being developed, climbing, underwater caving, bird watching and at Moraira, you can hire 4 wheel drive buggies or use the go-cart track used in the Benidorm episode with Madge!


The nearest beach, Moraig Cove, is a few minutes drive, a bus ride or a 20 minute walk. Other beaches are at Moraira and Javea and further afield.


The nearest airport is Alicante, less than an hours drive away. Valencia airport is a little further.


Nearest supermarket is a few hundred yards. There is also an excellent restaurant, a bank, medical centre etc a few minutes walk away. Benitachell, Moraira, Javea are all close by. This is a very popular holiday area.

Further Details:

Atenea is a traditional two bedroom Spanish villa nestled in the beautiful hillside between Moraira and Javea. It is ideal for a relaxed family holiday in the Spanish sunshine with the quiet swimming pool only a few steps from the door and the sea in walking distance. The terrace and garden benefit from hours of sunshine and in the evening it is an ideal location for a BBQ or dinner as the sun goes down. The pool is private but shared with neighbours. Access by key. It is not a communal pool.

The property is surrounded by unspoilt country and landscaped parkland with spectacular views to the sea. It is convenient for the lively Mediterranean seaside resorts of Moraira, Javea and Calpe with Blue-Flag beaches nearby as well as plenty of shopping and entertainment for all the family.

Upmarket Moraira in particular has fantastic restaurants and is ideal for shopping and the beach. It can be easily reached by car where there is a large free car park near the centre.

At La Cumbre there is a supermarket, bank, chemist, bar and two restaurants, all within walking distance of the villa. Cumbre del Sol has wide roads, extensive lighting and a beautiful secluded beach. The beach is also a popular location for scuba diving and cave diving for the more adventurous visitors. There is a new trekking trail to Granadella Cove and the new Canada equine centre.

There are a number of good golf clubs in the area and walks and horse rides can be taken in the adjoining parc natural reserve of Granadella. A longer walk takes you to the beautiful Granadella Cove.
