The owners of Tudor Rose, Trevor and Ramona Bryan have been associated with Javéa for 21 years when they holidayed there in 1999. Having owned property in all areas of Javéa including The Port, Mount Montgo and now The Arenal, they have become part of the locals and they wouldn’t have it any other way. They have returned to Javéa up to 5 or 6 times every year and never cease to lose their love for the place.
This article have been written for the sole purpose of spreading the information on Javéa to all of Tudor Rose Customers looking to holiday or rent/buy in Spain. It is to be thoroughly recommended and if you do visit the area, you won’t be disappointed.
Javéa enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, with cool sea breezes in the summer and protection by surrounding mountains against the cold north winds in winter. It has been described by the World Health Organisation as having one of the best climates in the world. The area averages nearly 3000 hours of sunshine each year and the average temperature exceeds 20 degrees. On average it can boast 325 sunny days each year making it an ideal all year round destination.
Javea is a small historical town, modern yet free of high rise buildings offering not only a relaxing holiday atmosphere but a convenient and peaceful place to elope to. You will be surprised at just how welcoming and friendly the local people are with English spoken in all quarters.
Situated on the South coast of Spain on the Costa Blanca about an hour’s drive north of Alicante Airport. The clean, warm and very blue Mediterranean Sea laps the beautiful sandy beaches and coves making evenings extremely peaceful as you dine on the seafront in one of the many restaurants The Port and The Arenal have to offer.
The different landscapes allow you to see different sides to Javea. With its sandy coastlines and rugged mountain areas, it’s mild year-round climate, it’s careful planning permission policies and extensive tourist attractions, Javéa really is the crème de la crème of Spain. Tourists flock all year round, however this doesn’t take away from its traditional beauty. No matter how Javéa has entered the 21st century, The town has remained as the beautiful place it always has been, combining beauty and modern facilities with the charm of an ancient fishing village.
The Different Sides to Javéa…
Javéa has many different sides to it: The Port, The Arenal, The Old Town and Mount Montgo
One of Javéa’s main attractions is the magnificent mountain ‘Montgo’. Shaped like a sleeping elephant, Montgo is considered Javea’s protector. With many excursions and walks to go on (you might even make it to the eye of the elephant), and guaranteed views of the Mediterranean Sea, Montgo is the perfect place to buy or rent.
The Old Town is steeped in history and this shows through in the architecture. Famous for its Tosca Stone, gothic bay windows and wrought iron bars in front of windows and balconies; you can walk the streets of the Old Town never seeing the same thing twice. Every building is unique. The Church of San Bartolemé and The Church of Nuestra Senora de Loreta are perfect examples of this and the narrow streets are filled with tiny boutique cafés, serving some of the most traditional Spanish food in the area.
The Port has something for everyone. There are all types of cuisine to try, making you spoilt for choice. However most of the restaurants covering the stretch of the port specialise in traditional Spanish food and seafood. However, it’s not just restaurants filling up spaces, with exquisite Jewellery shops and Ancient bookshops, you can walk round the Port all day in peace and tranquillity as you listen to the waves lap the shore.
The Arenal is the main sandy beach in Javéa. There are beautiful palm trees for shade and multiple areas for children to play. Along this stretch are also restaurants, perfect for the lunch time trade. It is also the area for the ‘younger’ people of Javéa, offering a number of different food cultures and a clubbing scene.
The Marina offers beautiful walks round the fishing harbour. With over 300 berths, there are plenty of great yachts to look at. We recommend Club Nauticá, a restaurant serving great lunches right on the Marina. It is also the home of the Modern Yacht Club where they offer all types of water sports such as sailing, fishing, scuba diving, water skiing and windsurfing.
There are also multiple clubs around Javéa that offer tennis, gold, horse riding, shooting, go-karting and much more!
The Avenida de Mediteranneo is almost 2 kilometres long and joins the areas of the Arenal and the Port.
