The 5 best residential developments to live in Jávea

Jávea is one of the most beautiful towns on the Costa Blanca. It is located between Denia and Moraira, and thanks to the Montgó mountains, it is sheltered from the wind, which means that it enjoys a warm climate all year round. Its landscapes are incredible. It has beautiful beaches of fine golden sand, as well as unspoilt coves surrounded by majestic cliffs, and also stands out for the large number of leisure, sporting and cultural activities available. Jávea is not only a perfect place to spend a holiday, but also to consider the option of living there. There is a wide range of options when it comes to buying a property in Jávea, as it is a town that is varied enough for anyone to find a property that suits their needs. Therefore, if you are thinking of buying a property in this municipality, in this post we are going to talk about the best residential developments in Jávea.

La Lluca

La Lluca complex enjoys an enviable environment in which tranquillity and contact with nature prevail, as it is located between mountains and orange groves. It is one of the most prestigious urbanisations in Jávea. It is very close to the golf club and its properties stand out for having the best qualities on the market and for their markedly Mediterranean style. They are luxury homes, with beautiful gardens, and have a large area of land of between 1500 and 5000 square metres. All the houses have unequalled views of the Montgó. It is worth noting that there is only one entrance to the urbanisation and that it has security cameras, making it an extremely secure area.

El Tosalet

El Tosalet is perfect for those who like more cosmopolitan surroundings, but without renouncing a natural environment. In its time, it was one of the most prestigious urbanisations thanks to the landscaping of the area, the sea views and the proximity to the sandy beach. Nowadays, it is a residential area in great demand by both foreigners and Spanish tourists. The houses in Tosalet also have a marked Mediterranean style, and have security cameras as well as a security service that is active twenty-four hours a day. The price of the homes is medium-high, but they enjoy all the comforts all year round. The streets of the urbanisation are wide, well-lit, and there is also a community of owners who maintain all the services for a monthly fee.

La Corona

This residential development is usually chosen by buyers with a high purchasing power, as it is mostly made up of impressive luxury villas located on the mountainside. Its infrastructure is excellent, with a social club, sports facilities and children’s playgrounds. It is very close to the port, about two kilometres away. It is worth mentioning that the properties are built with top quality materials, with Mediterranean designs and large windows that allow the light to pass through, as well as enjoying the best panoramic views of Jávea. For all these reasons, this development is a very good option to live in all year round.

Balcón al Mar

Balcón al Mar is so called because it is located on the cape of La Nao, so the views of the Mediterranean are unbeatable, like looking out onto a balcony that looks directly out to sea. It is very close to the famous Arenal beach, about ten minutes away, so you can perfectly combine the tranquillity of living in this area with the proximity and easy access to the centre of Jávea. In addition, it has a wide infrastructure, as well as restaurants, supermarkets, coves, etc. In this urbanisation you can find luxury villas, but there are also more affordable properties for all budgets. This urbanization is one of the quietest residential areas, ideal for year-round living or holidays.

Montgó area

The residential areas in the Montgó area are very spacious and well communicated. They are ideal to live in all year round, especially if you like tranquillity and nature. Furthermore, their prices are very competitive. The orientation of these urbanisations is their greatest attraction, as most of the properties are south-facing, so the winds are warmer and the climate is great all year round. Also, being located in the mountains, the houses enjoy many hours of sunlight, as well as spectacular views. The Montgó area is very close to the town centre, so the shops, restaurants, etc., are quite close.

Which is the best area to live in Jávea?

It is very difficult for us to decide on the best residential developments to live in Jávea, as all we have mentioned are very good options to establish a residence. It all depends on the preferences and purchasing power of each person.

Top 4 areas to live in Benidorm. Choose your favourite!

Top 4 areas to live in Benidorm. Choose your favourite!

Known for its huge skyscrapers rising up on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Benidorm has been and still is one of the major tourist attractions on the Alicante coast, both internationally and nationally.

At the same time, it is also a prime area for settling and living all year round. That is why we would like to show you some of the city’s strong points in this respect and the best areas for living in Benidorm.

Living in Benidorm has many advantages and its location is ideal in terms of climate. If you enjoy the good weather it is definitely an option to take into account, with an average temperature throughout the year of around 23 degrees, mild winters and a sea breeze in summer that cools down the heat that prevails at that time of year.

Its beaches are also an excellent remedy for this time of year, with nothing better than a dip in the sea to cool off, especially if you can have it right next to your home, even better.

Poniente Beach: Benidorm’s most peaceful area

If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is definitely the place for you. This area of Benidorm was built as an alternative to the hustle and bustle that characterises Levante Beach, the busiest beach in the city.

Its beaches are much wider and the tourism is less overwhelming than in the upper part of the city. Away from foreign visitors and busier with nationals, it is an ideal setting for strolling along the promenade.

This makes it one of the best areas to live in Benidorm, and it has some dreamy residential areas with huge terraces overlooking the sea.

A good example of this is Benidorm Beach, a residential complex with more than 196 properties of 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms, a building with huge windows that allow you to enjoy the sea views at its fullest.

It also has facilities designed for all types of residents, from the youngest to the retired: The development has a swimming pool for adults and children, spa, jacuzzis, paddle tennis courts… Definitely an ideal place to improve your quality of life!

Levante Beach: A year-round attraction

One of the most iconic beaches in the country takes its name from this area of the Costa Blanca. This is the most touristic beach in Benidorm, so if you enjoy the hustle and bustle and the buzz of this town in Alicante, this is certainly the place for you.

In this area you will find the urban centre of the town, offering accessibility and a wide range of services. The streets are lined with shops, pubs, restaurants, nightclubs and much more. In this part of town, there is what is known as the English area, where thousands of British people holiday all year round.

areas to live in Benidorm

Old Town: The centre of Benidorm

To the west of Levante Beach is the oldest part of the city. It is notable for its cobblestone pedestrian areas, making it difficult to reach by car. It is not an area with large residential complexes, as it still retains much of the buildings of the fishing village that once was this beautiful coastal town.

To its credit, however, its many historic buildings make it one of the most culturally rich areas of the city, and one with a unique charm. This is why many consider it one of the best areas to live in Benidorm.

Sierra Helada area: A viewpoint overlooking the Mediterranean Sea

This area is known for being a protected natural space, with the label of natural park of the Valencian Community. It is formed by an impressive relief, which is located between the towns of Benidorm and Alfaz del Pi.

In the surroundings of this green area there are several residential areas which, due to their elevated position, give them preferential views of the extensive Mediterranean Sea, but they are further away from the main beaches of the city. It also has fewer services in its vicinity such as restaurants, shops or medical services.

This is a good option if you want to settle in a quiet area but, in fact, you will also miss out on a lot of Benidorm’s vibe.

areas to live in Benidorm

As a final note we must say that Benidorm is a city made for everyone, there is no better or worse area, it simply depends on your preferences. This wide variety is what makes this city one of the most comprehensive in the country to live in, in addition to its fantastic climate, as we mentioned before.

Another important aspect worth highlighting is its commitment to culture, not only with its Benidorm International Music Festival, but also with many other events related to the world of culture throughout the year that add value to the city.

At Sonneil we are leaders in the sale of homes on the coast of Spain, and we like to listen to our clients in order to offer them the property that best suits their tastes and needs. We also accompany our clients throughout the process, from the purchase, through the paperwork and after-sales service.

In addition, we put at your disposal in Altea the residential Delfin Natura on the beach of Albir in Alfaz del Pi, in the heart of the Costa Blanca. A few minutes from Benidorm or other cities on the Costa Blanca as Calpe, Denia, Villajoyosa or the capital of the province, Alicante.

World Wildlife Day. Sonneil prioritises natural environments

World Wildlife Day. Sonneil prioritises natural environments

We are celebrating World Wildlife Day by highlighting the importance of living in harmony with nature

Open spaces. Terraces with sea views. Gardens. The pandemic has accelerated a long-standing demand: to live in areas that allow us to get away from our fast-paced lifestyles and, at the same time, to connect with nature and recharge our batteries. In short, we want to move away from the most crowded environments and look for places that guarantee peace and quiet while staying connected to the city.

Since the very beginning, at Sonneil Homes we have chosen property developments that focus precisely on these characteristics. And now, even more so, due to an increase in demand for communal areas and open spaces in which to spend more time.

Our residential developments stand out for the connection of the interior with the exterior, guaranteeing that the light from the coast enters the home while favouring energy savings thanks to natural lighting. Large windows and glass are essential elements in all Sonneil developments.

The sea-facing terraces with panoramic views are another essential element, ideal for breathing in the sea breeze and listening to the murmur of the waves. The terraces at Gran Canet are this impressive.

World Wildlife Day

Energy efficiency

The real estate developers we work with are also committed to systems and equipment that promote energy efficiency and reduce emissions to a minimum. As in Benidorm Beach, where the hot water is produced by an aerothermal system, while in Denia Beach it is generated by solar panels.

The double-skin façades are another way of insulating and protecting the residences from sudden changes in temperature. And in the communal areas, designed to make the most of the open air, care is taken to ensure that the vegetation is of local origin and is maintained with the best possible irrigation system.

Unique locations

It goes without saying that the location of Sonneil developments also seeks to offer natural spaces within walking distance of the homes. Some are as impressive as the Chacmuchuc Lagoon in Cancun. A protected site bordering La Amada Residences, the luxury residential development that Sonneil markets in the Mexican Caribbean.

Or the foothills of the Sierra de Bernia, where the Altea Bayview homes are located, with direct access to the mountain via a path that starts at the development.

World Wildlife Day

As our CEO, Alfredo Millá says, “We’d like residents to live a good life not only at home, but outside of it. We want to make it easy for them to enjoy nature and good weather away from the noise, stress and speed that cities impose on us”.

What to do in Jávea. Experience the best of the Mediterranean

What to do in Jávea. Experience the best of the Mediterranean

Jávea is one of the best-known towns on the Costa Blanca, and it will not disappoint visitors. It has everything one looks for when visiting this part of the Mediterranean: the sea, beaches, incredible views, endless sea breezes, a perfect climate to enjoy the outdoors…

That’s why at Sonneil we offer properties in Jávea where you can live the Mediterranean life at its best.

Discover what to see in Jávea and watch out: you might fall in love.

Visiting Jávea – historic centre

The centre of Jávea, as in other towns in this area, is a reminder of the town’s medieval past. Narrow cobbled streets, white façades to soften the summer heat, arched doorways, wrought iron balconies, flower pots… and traces of medieval architecture, for example, the defensive walls, which protected the town from pirate attacks.

Take a look at the ‘tosca‘, a type of porous stone that is very typical of this area and in which many of the lintels of the town’s old houses are carved.

What to do in Jávea

Stroll through its historic centre for a trip back in time and visit its old buildings, such as the gothic church of San Bartolomé, the Town Hall, the Abastos market, or houses like the Palau dels Sapena, from the 15th century, or the Casa dels Bolufer, from the 18th century.

Apart from the buildings, the town centre of Jávea has a warm and friendly atmosphere that makes you feel at home. Shops selling traditional products, bars and cafés… and a weekly street market where the locals shop. In short, this is a place where you can experience the Mediterranean with all five senses.

Beaches of Jávea

The northern part of Alicante is famous for its coves with crystal clear waters. While some of them are difficult to access, it is well worth exploring them and admiring this marvel of nature. These are our top picks:

  • Granadella Cove. This is the most popular, the most sought-after, the one that receives the most visitors, the most beautiful… To access Granadella cove you have to wear suitable footwear and be very attentive to what you step on, but you will be blown away by what awaits you in this corner in the rocks. It also has beach bars where you can spend some time eating and drinking with stunning views of the sea. It is best to come in the months of June and September.
  • Moraig Cove. To reach this beautiful cove you have to travel a little to the south of Jávea. What stands out most about it is the contrast between the deep blue of the sea and the great cliffs that plunge into it. This is a 500-metre-long stretch where life is reduced to swimming and marvelling at the clear waters. And don’t miss the Cova dels Arcs, which seems to be carved out of the rock.
What to do in Jávea
  • Sardinera Cove. The best thing about this small beach is the peace and quiet, as it is not very crowded, even on summer days. It is a pristine cove that can be reached on foot from the Creu de Portixol viewpoint. Don’t you worry, the path is very easy and at the end you will be rewarded with a crystal-clear sea.

What to eat in Jávea

As usual on the Costa Blanca, the Mediterranean is the star of Jávea’s cuisine. Top quality ingredients, prepared to the highest standards and of the healthiest possible quality. We are staying for lunch in Jávea.

Gastronomy and typical products of Jávea

Jávea’s gastronomy speaks of its location on the Mediterranean coast, its history and its climate, favourable for the cultivation of fruit and vegetables. Rice, pulses, spices such as saffron and dried red pepper, tomatoes, figs…

The fertile fields and vegetable gardens, as well as the use of all that the sea has to offer, make Jávea’s cuisine something you cannot miss.

What to do in Jávea

There is even a quality brand, “Fish and seafood from the Bay of Jávea”, which guarantees the origin of the fish and seafood. There is also a very peculiar product that is one of the signs of identity of the town: the sea urchin.

Not to mention the salted fish, a method for preserving fish that dates back to Roman times and today produces such authentic products as salted anchovies, tuna, bonito, sardines…

Restaurants in Jávea

  • Bon Amb. Bon Amb, a two Michelin-starred restaurant set in a restored country house surrounded by beautiful gardens, is not to be missed by the most discerning gourmets. Its chef, Alberto Ferruz, takes advantage of the best ingredients from the Marina Alta region to create spectacular dishes based on fish, seafood, vegetables…
  • Tula. Tula, situated in a privileged location in front of the Arenal beach, also has a Michelin star and is run by Borja Susilla and Clara Puig, former students of the renowned Quique Dacosta. Market cuisine is their forte, and they use innovative techniques such as Ike Jime, a way of sacrificing fish that intensifies its flavour. The Michelin Guide recommends their caramelised rice pudding.
  • Embruix. We love a meal by the sea at Embruix, as it is one of Jávea’s favourite eateries, and that says a lot in its favour. From the old town house in which it is located to the tradition that radiates from its dishes, Embruix is definitely a safe bet.

What to see around Jávea

If there is one thing that makes the province of Alicante stand out, it is its coastline. And the north of the Costa Blanca is a perfect example of the natural wealth, tradition and good climate of this corner of the Mediterranean.

In the area around Jávea we find exceptional places such as the popular town Denia, one of the most sought-after destinations for those seeking to relax and unwind. Its castle and the Baix la Mar neighbourhood are its hallmarks, along with its incomparable gastronomy, represented by the famous chef Quique Dacosta.

To the south of Jávea is Poble Nou de Benitatxell and its well-known Moraig Cove. Next stop is Moraira, also famous for its old town, its watchtower and its coves. And of course Benissa, with its “Cathedral of the Marina Alta” and a beautiful medieval old town. Finally, we recommend Calpe and the iconic Penyal d’Ifac Natural Park, one of the most identifiable rock formations in our country.

If you are more of a mountain person, the Marina Alta has picturesque villages nestled in the rock, rugged caves, walls, castles… and valleys where walking and enjoying the views is a luxury.

We really hope you will be able to visit Jávea soon and discover all this and much more in first hand. And now you know, at Sonneil, we can help you find your home in Jávea. We can’t wait to see you!
