PROPERTY DETAILS The main house has the master-bedroom and fabulous bathroom with large jacuzzi on the upper floor, which emphasizes to great effect the moorish architecture, while the guest-house and exterior areas, with a summer kitchen and diverse, Mediterranean terraces and a great naya for cosy and long summer nights are all at ground-level.
The irresistable charm of this property lies not only in the harmony and individuality of the ground-plan, nor in the inestimable quality or first-class fittings, but, above all, in the game of contrast and simultaneous unison of modern technology and traditional architecture, old and new, simple and sophisticated, a fascinating blend. A property you come across in this perfection only once in a century and situated virtually on the edge of Jávea Old Town.
LOCATION Javea is a small, historic town, free of high rise buildings, is situated between the San Antonio and La Nao points and enjoys the impressive and magnificent protection of Mount Montgó. The clean, warm, blue Mediterranean Sea laps the beautiful beaches and coves that Javea has to offer. With its variety of landscape, ranging from sandy coastlines to rugged mountain areas, its mild year-round climate, its careful planning policies and extensive tourist facilities, Javea is a jewel on the Costa Blanca, combining beauty and modern facilities with the charm of an ancient fishing village.
The town is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes drive from Alicante towards the north-eastern tip of the Costa Blanca. Javea old town is steeped in history and it’s evident in the architecture, with its Tosca stone porticoes, gothic bay windows, wrought iron window bars and balcony railings. The church of San Bartolemé in the town centre is an example of late gothic architecture with a defensive character. The "Soler Blasco" Archaeological Museum is close by in the narrow streets and offers a wealth of information about Iberian history. Dominating the fishing port is the modern silhouette of the church of Nuestra Señora de Loreto, with its roof depicting a ship’s hull. Outside the town, following the road to the San Antonio cape, the architectural sites include the monastery of Nuestra Señora de los Angeles, a series of small hermitages clutch the slopes of the mountain and ancient windmills dominate the landscape. In the centre of town the covered indoor market sells all sorts of fabulous fresh local produce: fruit, vegetables, meat and fresh fish are brought up from the port daily.
