Property and local area description
Barx and La Drova are situated in the high valley of La Safor, between the mountain ranges of Buixcarro and Monduver, at an altitude of 400 metres above sea level, and enjoys a pleasant climate. Barx forms part of the community of the Validigna Mancomunidad de la Validigna made up of the villages of Tavernes, Simat, Benifairo and Barx. A territory with its own identity, united by common history.
The apartment and villas are situated in the centre of La Drova approx. 4 min drive (20min walk) from the village of Barx with its many bars and shops including two small supermarkets, butchers, bakers, tobacconist, bank, chemist etc.
La Drova has a typical Mediterranean climate, there are approximately three thousand hours of sunshine each year. The gentle temperatures provide an ideal year round climate with mild winters and delightful springs, further north the thermometers plummet and further south the summer heat can be unbearable. La Drova is located fifteen minutes drive from Gandia and the 7 kilometres of award winning Blue Flag beaches of La Safor. The international airports of Alicante (1 1/2hrs) and Valencia (40 minutes) are close by and easily accessible via the excellent arterial A7 motorway. Madrid is four hours drive.
La Drova must rank as one of the most beautiful, secluded and convenient urbanisations in Spain. Set some 1,500’ up in the mountains, La Drova rests within a lush valley bounded by mountains on two sides. Monduver, the highest mountain at 847m (2,500’+), dominates the area with its sharp summit clearly visible from all directions.
Five minutes drive takes one to the charming and ancient village of Barx where a traditional and vibrant Spanish life continues, as it has for generations.
La Drova itself has a bar/restaurant and an excellent and well run Poliusporto which has a large swimming pool, tennis court and a games facility. Wonderful walking, climbing and cycling exist in an area with air so clear and unpolluted that that the stars at night gleam with an intensity barely known in the UK.
This is an area that will absolutely seduce even the most hard hearted international traveller
