Spanish Villas on the Costa del Azahar
Self-catering in Spain on the Costa del Azahar
The Costa del Azahar is a popular tourist area in northern Valencia. The coast covers the area between Cape Cabo de Nao and the estuary of the Ebro River, and its nickname of the "Coast of Orange Blossom" owes to the many citrus trees in the region which fill the environment with colour and smell. The area has a wonderful climate throughout the year, making the Costa del Azahar a great choice for villa holidays in Spain. While renting a NOVASOL Spain villa on the coast, you will find kilometres of wide, sandy beaches and numerous charming bays. This part of Valencia is much calmer and quieter that the Costa Blanca and therefore perfect for those hoping to simply get away from it all.
Interesting attractions from Spanish villas
Up and down the Costa del Azahar there are numerous lesser-known attractions worth seeing. Rent a car for a day (or perhaps you have brought your own) and take a trip around the surrounding towns from self-catering villas in Valencia. Below are a few of our favourites:
- Vinaros – A typical bullfighting town with an arena and lovely chapels.
- Alcoceber – Where the Xiviert Castle towers above and you can see rich influences from both the Christians and Arabians. You can also visit the baroque church of John the Baptist.
- Castellón de la Plana – Contains the famous Belfry of El Fadri and the Gothic cathedral of Santa Maria from the 13th century as well as a museum of modern art.
- Sagunto – A city where you can find many remains from Roman times. You can visit the remains of a Roman castle, a circus and a temple, as well as ruins of two Arabian fortresses. Discover the restored Roman Theater from the first century while renting villas in Spain.
