The tower and studio are in the Parc Natural del Montgo.
Views of sea and mountain. Sky large. The quirky house is warm, comfortable, and unique. there are many paths to caves, old stone towers and the towns of Xabia and Denia. 10 minutes by car there are a variety of beaches.
Unique, rustic, off- grid stone tower and adjoining studio in Parc Natural del Montgo, overlooking the Mediterranean, surrounded by wild lavender and rosemary, carob and almond trees. There are bike paths and hiking trails right outside the door for easy strolls or energetic climbs up Montgo (750 meters) or down to an ancient cave at waters edge where sandstone was cut for Javea's old buildings. The tranquility is occasionally interrupted during the day by a traditional Spanish sport shooting range. The nights are silent and filled with stars.
We are located on a high plana between Javea (3 km.) and Denia (8 km.), each town with lively markets, all manner of restaurants, interesting shops and many beaches. Javea offers a beautifully preserved 18th century center. Denia is the main ferry port to the Balearic Islands (Ibiza, Majorca, and Minorca).
The tower has a double bed upstairs and a large bathroom, with shower and marble tub, below, down a curved open stairway. A few steps away, across a private patio, is a small galley kitchen and sitting room with another bed (king or two singles). You can prepare simple meals or walk to a nearby restaurant with bar and swimming pool. There is a wood stove in the sitting room and two moveable gas heaters.
Nearest airports: Alicante and Valencia, each about an hour and a half drive. Bus service to Denia and Javea/Xabia
You have access to the tower, studio, the patio, an outdoor (cold!) shower, parking and of course, the entire Parc Natural del Montgo.

Другие важные подробности
Remember this is an off grid house and you must be mindful using electricity. The wifi is adequate but this is not a place to stay if you need to be online all the time.
The sport shooting range (Campo de Tiro) is close by and it disturbs the peace during periods of the day, at times it can go on for more than an hour and some days there is no shooting at all. It is unpredictable but worse on weekends.
No smoking inside. No children. Plan to arrive in daylight.
Mobile telephone service is not dependable. SMS (texting) is more reliable.
Mindful use of water and electricity. This is an off-grid house and we make electricity with solar panels and store it in batterias.
I built the tower 40 years ago, when I came to live in Spain. After graduate school in California, I worked as a builder and a yacht captain. My 3 children were all born in Denia and are now grown up with children of their own. I speak English, Spanish and French.
