    Has anybody been there for holidays? If yes, is it an OK area? It looks nice on pictures.
    I am thinking of giving it a try next Summer.

    Thank you.

    Nice area about 5 miles from Javea, so a car is a must . Benitachell is dead from the neck up ,Moraira which is about 3 miles away is ok. Would n´t stay there myself as it means getting in the car every time to buy a litre of milk. Distance from airport also quite important as it is about 65 miles from the one at Alicante. Quite near for golf ,Javea has a very nice course and La Sella near Denia is about 8-9 miles from CDS, has a very good 18 hole course designed by Olazabal. If you want tranquility and do not mind driving
    then could be alright for you. If you want to eat out and have a good drink not such a good place.

    Thank you for the details.

    I want an absolute tranquility, I do not want to go out, I shall rent a car and I like views and some mountains next to the sea, also uncrowded beaches, warm seas and nice swimming pools.

    Probably Benidorm has the best beach in the area but with small kids I would prefer places like MOraira. We fly to Valencia so Castellon or Javea areas are at same distance. But Castellon seems too expensive for what it offers…

    Cumbre del Sol is a mountain, the seaward side of which is covered in villas and apartments, definitely better to be up there looking out than looking towards it.
    However once up there, the views are to die for, one way the sea and the other valleys. Most Villas have their own pools and a spectacular outlook.
    There are several bars, restaurants and a supermarket up the mountain, but a car is essential. Moraira is about 10 minutes drive and Javea about 20 minutes the other way. 3 large supermarkets within 10 minutes by car.
    Moraira is an upmarket elegant very small town, a lovely beach and lots of nice restaurants, no package hotels so mainly populated by villa owners. Spotlessly clean with two superb beaches – be sure to locate El Portet beach – not easy to find but worth the effort just to admire the multi million pound villas on the cliffs.
    Javea is more cosmopolitan, two areas, the Arenal – lovely shallow sandy beach and beachside restaurants and bars, some quite classy. Javea Port more Spanish and residential with a harbour and fish market.
    We’ve got an apartment on Cumbre del Sol and love it. Only downside is it can be windy, but in the summer that’s very welcome, in winter it can get very cold.
    There is a local beach on the Cumbre surrounded by huge cliffs and a steep hill down with car park and two beach bars, its spectacular.
    There are lots of lovely walks on the mountain and you can walk across the protected green areas to Granadella or down to secluded coves.
    Its a world away from what people imagine the Costas are like, if you do want to slob it Benidorm or Calpe are only about 30-45 minutes away
