It is traditional that once Christmas is over many people start thinking about booking a holiday villa for rent in Spain or holiday apartment rentals in Spain to give ourselves something to look forward to during the chilly months of January and February. A lot of people in the U.K. choose to go to Spain for their annual holiday and at this time of the year will be deciding where to go and what sort of holiday accommodation in Spain to choose. The northern Costa Blanca has some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole of Spain and is a great place to book your self-catering holiday apartment rentals in Spain or a holiday villa for rent in Spain. The area has a typical Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sunshine a year and is full of beautiful orange, almond and olive groves.
As people tend to have less to spend on their annual holiday these days it makes sense to look at all of the options. In the past many holidaymakers have chosen a package deal in a hotel but in recent times more and more people are booking their flights and accommodation for themselves and saving money. For example if you want a holiday villa for rent in Spain you can book direct with the property owner by searching on a website which lists privately owned properties for rent. You simply contact the owner and book your holiday rental directly with them. Popular towns in the north of the Costa Blanca to book a villa holiday in Spain are Calpe, Javea, Benissa and Denia.
The town of Calpe has three sandy beaches and plenty of modern holiday accommodation Spain available. It has an attractive promenade lined with cafes, bars and restaurants which stretches the length of the seafront taking in the large marina and the old fishing port. If you fancy a day out away from your holiday apartment rentals in Spain, try a visit to the nearby Cactuslandia where you can see tropical trees, a thousand different species of cactus and exotic birds.
Javea is a lovely, seaside town which was once just a fishing village. Nowadays it still has a working fishing port but it is also an attractive holiday resort. You can book a luxury holiday villa for rent in Spain here, many of which can be rented from the private owners. If you want self-catering holiday accommodation in Spain in a picturesque town with a sandy beach and good tourist amenities this could be your perfect destination. The old part of the town is unspoilt and some of the shopkeepers speak the local language of ‘Valenciano’.
Benissa is not on the coast but it does have access to an area of the coast which has beautiful, white sand beaches. Benissa is always a popular place to book a holiday villa to rent in Spain with holidaymakers who enjoy water sports. The weather conditions in Benissa are ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, water-skiing, sailing and fishing. Walking, cycling and horse-riding are also popular activities for those who like to get out and about and are great ways to see the mountains and other beautiful scenery around Benissa.
