Just 20 minutes’ inland from the coastal towns of Denia, Javea and Moraira, surrounded by the Sierra de Bernia and Sierra del Forner Mountains we find the Jalon Valley.
Known for its many fiestas which are celebrated throughout the year, and its wine from bodegas producing a fine Moscatel and, of course, a full bodied red!
Jalon attracts those who appreciate more of an open country feel, although the coast and its beautiful beaches are only 20-30 minutes’ drive away.
The Jalon Valley has some of the best scenery in Spain with magnificent mountains surrounding the landscape of vineyards, olive trees, orange and almond groves. Unspoilt villages are peppered throughout the Jalon Valley, including Alcalali, Jalon, Lliber and Parcent.
In late January and early February the whole of the Valley is covered with pink and white almond blossom, making the whole area a delight to be seen!
Jalon enjoys a fascinating gastronomy, famous for its pastries made with local almonds and its sausages, still produced using original recipes.
The area is fabulous for hiking and cycling with some beautiful routes throughout the Valley to the Mountains.
