Finestrat is a beautiful old village in the province of Alicante (Spain) Alicante (España) which lies 40 km North of Alicante and very near to Benidorm is very unusual, insofar as it is an inland mountain village and also a small tourist resort by the sea, called Cala Finestrat. Situated in a rural zone it is a peaceful spot from where you can enjoy all types of activities. Benidorm is only a 10 minute drive away incresing the possibilities of beach, mountains and the night life. There are many activities you can do here, walking, rambling, hiking, mountain climbing, biking, sking, golf and boat trips etc. The views are beautiful at any time of the year. You can enjoy Mediterrean cuisine in the local restaurantes such as Llar de Morena and savour the best paella in Spain. The calm atmosphere along with the tranquillity makes this place perfect for your holidays, far enough from everything and near enough at the same time.
The house is only two minutes from the village where there are bars and restaurantes. In the village wander through the narrow streets and make your way up to the park on the top of the hill, it really is worth the trouble. After a rest take in the views and don't forget your camera, you will need it. There is another park at the bottom village with a stream running through it. Take a gentle stroll and admire the plants on view. There is a play area there for the kids so they won't get bored.
The large swimming pool is open July and August. There is a kid's splash pool and play area and is situated right next to the car park.
Friday is market day, so you can stock up on the locally grown produce, but get there early. Have a coffee afterwards.
Finestrat is an ideal base for any type of holiday. We are only ten minutes from Terrra Mitica theme park and Benidorm beaches. Less then 10 minutes and you can be on the motorway to visit the many beauty spots or venture into Alicante where you visit the Santa Barbara castle, wander around the shops or go to the port, have a drink and watch the boats you wish you could afford. If you like animals then we have two places nearby, Vergel Safari Park and Noe's where you can see many animals that have been rescued from Circus's and Fairgrounds.
