We go to Denia so often that our friends wonder why we don’t get to try and explore other regions. All we can really say is that we always take a vacation to Denia, in fact, every year, simply because we’ve discovered a wonderland – we’ve discovered our version of paradise. There are so many things to do that our 4 kids are consistently occupied with something, meaning that we have the time to relax and enjoy the really good climate. We normally rent a big holiday villa in Denia (not always the same one) that’s big enough for our entire family, and it is surprisingly inexpensive. It is also our intention to travel more and spend less with vacation rentals in Denia.
It might seem to be a bit boring to keep going back to the same place, but we could never get bored of Denia. Each time the trip ends, we count the seconds until our next one.
You may wonder why we love this place so much …
It is truly challenge speaking only about a couple of things we love about Denia, since there are just so many wonderful things about this area. To begin with, there’s its history that we really fancied. For a small port in Valencia, it undoubtedly has a fascinating past. Because it was a strategic port, it was the centre of many fights over time. Romans, Muslims and Christians have fought in Denia. The castle is probably the first thing you’ll ever notice when visiting this area. Even though it was build a very long time ago, it still stands as one of the most attractive castles in Europe. The palace pathway offers wonderful views and the collections in the castle museum are so fantastic we would spend a lot of hours viewing them.
If history isn’t your thing, no need to worry because there are also other ways to have a great time in Denia. For one, there is its remarkable beach, where our children play various sports and swim – Punta del Raset. We really love to go to Punta del Raset, which is one of those beaches that has so many activities to surely our kids occupied whilst giving us time to relax.
We also love doing horseback riding. The La Sella riding institution is our favorite one, due to the fact that they offer rides through fantastic places. We really love going on horseback through the Montgo national park, because the mountain scenery is gorgeous, as well as the Spanish countryside.
I guess you already grasped just how much we like Denia. So much so that we asked ourselves why we were even bothering to go home at all. We made a decision to move there and began to search for a villa for sale in Denia.
Me and my other half work from home and our oldest boy has already done with his schooling, we decided it’s time to get a sea panorama. Considering that we have no other relatives in our present city, there is practically nothing stopping us from making this wonderland our permanent home.
So during our last vacation we started searching for villas available for sale. And I must say, compared to house prices back home you get a lot more for your money.
We were excited to find a 5 bedroom villa (swimming pool included) for 330,000 Euros. It might seem a lot (this was the upper limit of our budget), but since it was more a mansion than a villa, with a big swimming pool, with a bar to the side and a remarkable panorama, this was our first choice. We could already imagine all the great pool celebrations we were going to have. One of the biggest selling points for us were the 5 bedrooms, considering that we’re a large family and we would not want to be crowded. As I said before, this is most likely going to be our final choice.
Our other option is a smaller sized, 3 bedroom villa, at only 165, 000 Euros. Although it has only 3 bedrooms, the terrific view of the countryside, the sea and the golf course nearby have made us think about purchasing it.
We are far from a final decision and we’re preparing a new visit to Denia this 2015 to look for more villas for sale. We cannot just wait and we are so eager to start our new life in Denia!
