About this listing
Our fresh and modern holiday home, with it's concrete floors and fresh design, is located at a rural location. It comfortably hosts twelve people so come and enjoy the stars at night while making your own fire!
Welcome at Finca Pura Vida.
After 2 years of planning and building, we started our holiday home in 2009 in the rural area of Benissa at the Costa Blanca.
Located between the terraces full of almond and olive trees, it´s a tranquil and private location with lovely valley and sea views, but still only a short distance to all amenities which the Costa Blanca has to offer.
You may bring your dog, or your bike as we are surrounded by hills and mountains, all just starting at your bedroom door.
As our house is located in a private area, be aware of the fact you will be needing a car and that there are no streetlights but just the moon lighting your way!
Alicante airport is approx. 60 minutes by car, Valencia 75 both by highway. We advice you to hire a car at the airport, as you definitely need one around here.
The nearest village is Benissa, at a 8 minutes drive, it is still very Spanish not being at the coast. It has a charming Saturday morning market with lots of fruits and vegetables underneath the palm trees, and of course a few Spanish restaurants. The town offers enough supermarkets and enough branches from different banks.
The closest beach is only a 15 minute drive.
But there is of course a lot more to see, f.e Altea, Moraira or Javea. We are blessed with a beautiful coastline full of little hidden beaches, sandy or pebbled.
In the summer they offer little chiringuitos (wooden bars) to enjoy a drink or a snack, sometimes accompanied with life music.
Or you can just sit between the Spanish locals, whom bring their little picnic tables and coolers to the beach to watch the stars and go for a night swim.
Our house is formerly used by somebody in a wheelchair although there is a little step. Even though the bathroom is spacious, there is no special bar in the toilet, so you will need help with this.
We are surrounded by fruit trees, mainly almonds and olives, but also pear nectarine, cherry, prunes, orange and lemon as we own 170 of them. The plot is 1.5 acre so privacy guaranteed!
The coastal area of Caple, with it's 2 blue-flagged beaches, touristy with restaurants and all amenities, is a 10/15 minute drive.
Moraira with it's 2 wonderful sandy beaches is a 25 minutes by car, as well as Altea wich has a pebbled beach.
Both of these towns have a lot to offer, restaurant and bar wise.
We have a Dutch/English speaking teacher, so a relaxing class can be booked in advance. Prices to be arranged with the teacher, depending on the size of the group.
Also to be booked in advance. €35 euro for an hour.
Beauty: A beautician can come to the house for treatments.
Food: A private cook can be arranged at reasonable prices, or our Spanish neighbor can show you how to make a traditional Paella, which of course in the end is yours.
This area is reasonably popular among golfers and there are 4 golf courses in less then a 40 minute drive. The smallest, Golf Ifach, is a short but challenging 9 holes course, great for just a morning game. It's located in the urbanisation of San Jaime, in Benissa, close to the sea.
In Altea you have Don Cayo, a 9 hole course but with a lot of difference in height. There is the Javea Golf Club, a full 18 hole course, beautifully maintained and a wonderful golf experience.
A bit further away you have Golf La Sella, near Denia, also 18 holes and shortly expanding with another 9 holes. A little bit further along the coast there are plenty of others, f.e towards Benidorm or Valencia.
Private pool with large terrace, which has a basic bar area.
Pool can be heated during the winter months on request.
