Villas For Sale In Javea

 
Villas for sale in Javea may be tucked away from the usual beaten track, but they’re still remarkably accessible. With both Valencia and Alicante airports an hour’s drive away, and regular coach and rail services in and out of the region, you never have to feel completely detached from local life. You can also quickly be ferried to the Balearic Islands, Ibiza, Majorca, Minorca and Formentera, all from nearby Denia.
 
Javea itself is split into 3 main areas. These are the old town, the port and the arenal, which is a seaside promenade that runs alongside the town’s white beach. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at the port and the old town.
 
Otherwise known as the ‘Duanes del Mar’, the port is punctuated by the church of Mare de Deu de Loreto. An impressive structure in itself, it is shaped to look like a fishing boat cutting through the surf. Originally used in the booming trade of raisins during the 19th century, these days the harbour is most often visited for the nautical club that’s situated in its centre. With both sailing and scuba diving very popular in the town, it’s an ideal destination for those seeking a little more adventure amid the laidback Spanish lifestyle.
 
At the other end of the scale, the old town can provide that quieter, more peaceful retreat. Once fortified to keep out the raiding pirates that patrolled the shores, this part of town is rich in history, no more typified than by the church of Sant Bartomeu. Dating back as early as the 11th century, it still stands today, although bearing the scars of many a war, including the Spanish Civil, even before which it was named as a National Historic and Artistic Monument. Nearby, visitors can also take a walk around the art gallery and museum. The food market, built back in the ‘40s as well, offers a range of local produce and food favourites for you to enjoy.
 
If you’re searching for Javea villas for sale, then you can be sure you’ll find plenty of culture to enjoy there. From the landscape and scenery, to a bustling coastal town full of history, there’s so much for everyone.
