About our home

Located in a typical Spanish village, Benitachell is set apart from and yet accessible to the summer tourist mecca. This is apartment living at its best in a quiet neighbourhood. Within a 6 km radius, there are over 200 restaurants on offer. There are at least 8 restaurants within walking distance if you prefer not to cook.
Equipped with quality fittings and furnishings, plus a small outdoor balcony and internal courtyard, no garden, no pets. The wide vista from the apartment offers mountains, terraced hillsides and a view towards the sparkling Mediterranean ocean. Four beaches are only a 10 minute drive; Moraig, El Portet, Moraira and Javea where an easy walk along the beach esplanade makes a wonderful outing, followed by a break at one of over 90 restaurants or tapas bars.
We do not offer a car swap but recommend that you hire a car to reach the beaches and the sights. Guadalest, one of the prettiest villages in Spain, features several waterfalls, and is a half hour drive. If you want to step back in history, the old part of Valencia is worth visiting; beautiful architecture seen nowhere else in the world. We thought it was even more beautiful than Rome or Florence. It is only a 1 ½ hour drive. An enjoyable day trip or stay overnight.
Our internet is a high speed Wifi connection, allowing you to stay connected to the world. A desk is provided if you need to catch up on any business. Netflix movies are offered for your entertainment and the local Spanish Television. Enjoy music on our Youtube channel.
The airport of Valencia is a 1 ½ drive from the apartment.
The airport of Elche, near Alicante is a 1 hour drive from the apartment.

More about us

  1. We are a retired couple who have been married for 45 years. Rather than sit around and vegetate in Australia, we sold up and moved to Spain 2 years ago so we could enjoy the climate, learn a new language and establish a base for exploring Europe and the UK. Joining lovehomeswap should enable us to continue travelling.

  2. Victoria is fulfilling her life long dream of being an author. She aims to self publish 5 books simultaneously and is currently working on her 4th novel. She writes crime fiction with a touch of romance and a good dollop of wicked humour. She also has new passion - acrylic pouring - which she does with Alan - some of the results adorn the walls.

  3. Alan has become the Ama de Casa (house husband) because he wants to pay back the 40 years that Vicki looked after he and their 2 sons. He also paints, so forgive the wall art. And he has recently begun writing and illustrating children's books.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Benitachell is a typical Spanish village built on a hill which overlooks Moraira and it's beach to the south and Javea and it's beach to the north. Both are 10 mins drive and there are lots of smaller lovely beaches close by as well. The elevation ensures a sea breeze in summer, stunning views and incredible sunsets. The locals are very friendly and you can meet many of them in a "bar" opposite us which is where the Spanish have their first coffee, breakfast, lunch and even dinner. While the village has several restaurants, a small supermarket and a collection of specialty shops in the old marketplace, there is a large supermarket at the other end of the village and withing 10 mins drive we have 7 more large supermarkets

Buzzy restaurants
We have over 200 restaurants within a 6 km radius. We have not tried them all but have our favourites in the apartment manual.
Cool bars
Directly opposite us is where many of the locals have their first coffee of the day, breakfast, and lunch. while they are licencesed, most
Cozy cafés
we have a few in Benitachell, but with Moraira just down the hill, or Javea the other side, with nearly as many restaurants, we are never lacking great choices of where to eat. The Best place for coffee nuts id Cafe Milano in Javea, where they roast their own beans daily, grind them and mix them to your preference. Their food is spectacular too.
Retail therapy
Both Moraira and Javea have a lovely selection of boutique shops for retail therapy. Ondara has a large shopping mall and is only a 10 min drive away. Valencia and Alicante are both 1 hr away and have a multitude of retail options for the enthusiast.
Bit of culture
The Spanish find any excuse to part so they have fiestas for everything. So there is usually one or another happening close by. Their costumes are amazing and everyone learns an instrument from childhood so the bands that wander through the streets create a wonderful atmosphere. The old architecture throughout Spain is both fascinating and beautiful, rich in history and treasured by the Spanish as much as the tourists.
Walks in the park
There are numerous excellent walks around the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea and also inland through the vineyards and orange groves. Our area is quite hilly so some of the walks are quite challenging.
Spot of exercise
Besides walking, the roads are always full of cyclists who love the hilly terrain. In Benitachell we have a heated, indoor swimming pool and a fine golf course. I Moraira and Javea there are tennis courts and paddle tennis courts
