Residential urbanisations in Javea
In the past, Javea was delimited by areas and their plot numbers. Today we have names of streets within those areas and some clustered streets make up what we call urbanizations: residential areas. Some of these urbanizations have resident associations with minimal expenses. To give you a quick idea, here we have outlined the main residential areas for you.
|Alborada||Granadella||Pinosol y Pinomar||Sol d'este|
|Balcon al mar||Lucentum||Puchol y Puig Molins||Tarraula|
|Costa Nova||Montgó||El Rafalet||Tesoro Park|
|El Piver||La Mandarina||Senioles||Toscal|
Very exclusive and still very undeveloped, Alborada in Javea offers substantial properties, mostly of traditional Alicantine style. Offering wide roads, and pavements. Most houses are built on larger plots ie. 1500 m² plus which gives the impression of space and privacy. It's on the door-step of Javea Golf Club and is very tranquil. Property in the Alborada area does not come onto the market often.
Balcon al Mar
An appropiate name for a beautiful 'Balcony to the sea' . Yes, most of this area offers amazing sea views both to the north and south coastlines of Javea. A residential urbanisation originally developed by a German company called VAPF, who still have their main office in Benissa and are currently developing the Cumbre del Sol area in Benitachell. Plot sizes range between 700m² and 1000 m² with the odd larger one as you approach the frontline. ;The lighthuouse 'Cape Nao' is found in Balcon al Mar along with two lovely restaurants with panoramic sea views; one is called 'Restaurante Cabo de la Nao' and the other is called 'Restaurante Mirador de Javea'. There is also a residence association.
Is mostly flat with good road infrastructure and smaller scale plots starting around 700m² which is ideal for keen gardeners who don't want major up-keep. Most properties were originally built on one level but over the years, many have been extended by adding upper levels, so there's a mixed selection. Costa Nova offers a few great workers' bar-restaurants; ideal for home cooked menu's of the day.
Nestled behind Tarraula on the back road to Benitachell, the urbanised area called Covetelles has a country feel as it's surrounded by rolling hills and fields. Villas are built on smaller plots but at the same time offer property purchases that are value for money.
Is one of the most recent and most modern urbanisations in Javea, boasting an elevated position with sea and Montgo mountain views across the valley bed. Excellent infrastructure offers pavements, mains drainage and gas and all electric and telephone wires are underground as per european standard. When they started to develope El Piver urbanisation in Javea villas tended to be modern versions of the traditional style. Nower-days expensive villas with modern mediterranean architecture are being built amongst those already there, whichs reflects it's a residential area of higher caliber properties. Most plots here are 1000m².
Is the award winning beach in Javea where Bruce Willis filmed the movie called 'The Cold Light of Day'. Yes, the beach was shut to the public and locals were scouted and selected for extras; generating lots of excitement for the few days it lasted. Voted the best beach in the whole of Spain during a poll conducted by local television channel Antena 3, property toward La Granadella area tends to have stunning coastal sea views and plots that fall away to the waves or to the National Park of Granadella.
Not very well known and just perched on a small elevation at the back of the Arenal beach in Javea, Lucentum is a modern urbanisation with scope for extension. Stunning properties with different styled architecture have been built in this exclusive corner of Javea, commanding high priced properties that rarely hit the market. We can't wait until they restart its development.
Protector of bad weather, the Montgo Massif mountain flanks Javea's north side giving our beautiful town a wonderful microclimate that the world health organisation talked about. The highest summit in the area, Montgo stands at just over 750m high and looks like an elephant from the Javea side (Denia being on the north side). Montgo is broken up into different residential areas such as: Castellans (closest to the old town), Rimontgo (adjoining Castellans), La Ermita (where a pretty little church and supermarket are), El Gafforral (a newer zone with more modern infrastructures) and Montgo-Toscamar. Unless you're in one of the newer sections of Montgo; infrastructure can be lacking but you really do feel like you're in the 'old Spain'. Properties in these older streets run off septic tanks and yes, they do have mains water, electric, telephone and of course high speed internet connections! It's not 'old' in its services, just in its ambience. All of the urbanised areas on the Montgo are south facing, offer plots with minimum size 1000m and elevated with fabulous valley and countryside views - making it a popular choice for many foreigners. There is also a residence committee.
Is a modern urbanisation in Javea that is a short drive from the Arenal beach in the direction of Benitachell. Only a few roads big, it's tranquil and offers a country feel. Although the properties in Millenium urbanisation are quite modern, they do follow the traditional style construction.
Is an older urbanisation with good road planning the same as its neighbouring urbanisations La Lluca and Tesoro Park. Overlooking Javea Golf Club La Mandarina has lush views and is well connected.
Pinosol and Pinomar
Both Pinosol and Pinomar urbanisations in Javea are just a 3 minute drive from the Arenal beach. Pinosol has excellent infrastructure with pavements, street lighting and a residents committee. Pinomar still has streets that need finishing however, the houses in these areas are very popular due to their user-friendly designs and surroundings.
Puchol and Puig Molins
Both are very exclusive, neighbouring each other between Javea old town and port, the area is elevated, south facing and has stunning sea views over the town and port to the bay of Javea. You can walk into the port or town with ease but if your property is higher up the road, you may want to get a taxi back! Puchol and Puig Molins are very popular areas with wealthy locals, national city folk and foreigners alike.
Our father chose a villa on El Rafalet urbanisation in 1989 where we all lived when we first moved to Javea, so needless to say we all have a soft spot for Rafalet. Back in the day there was no tarmack on the road, it was full of pot holes, there were no telephone lines and hardly anybody lived there all year round. Over the years Rafalet has become more residential for all year living and has had good roads laid, phone lines erected, along with high speed internet via wifi AND it boasts a well organised residence association that really gets jobs done; like the new installation of LED street lights that should be erected before 2018 is out. El Rafalet urbanisation is elevated with beautiful open countryside views over the valley to the mountains in the distance, including Montgo and the pretty blue roof topped church in Benitachell.
Is an urbanisation in Javea that was built on a mountainside full of pine trees with view across the valley to the Montgo mountain and down to the sea. As Rebaldi is hardly developed, it's tranquility and wildlife are abundant. Most plots are larger than 1000m² and are on various levels due to the steep lay of the land.
Located on the outskirts of Javea old town, Senioles is an old residential area of Javea that is popular with the locals. It's quite normal for locals to live in an apartment in the old town or port during the winter months and move to a summer house ('casita') during hotter months (usually when the town fiestas finish until the colder weather arrives early november).
Very close to the beach, Sol d'este urbanisation is elevated with great open views and some parts facing east even have a glimpse to the sea. Roads have recently been relaid in Sol d'este which has tidied up the area hugely. Villas here tend to take advantage of the lay of the land and have gained separate accommodation.
Is quite a rural spot in Javea offering larger plots with country houses both new and old style. Winding roads remenisent of country lanes giving access to the houses scattered around.
As its name suggests; Treasure Park was developed in its day with upmarket villas. Substantial homes on plots of 1000m² or more. A fashionable address next to Javea Golf Club with beautiful golf and countryside views and surroundings.
Probably the most distinguished and upmarket urbanisation in its day and to this very day. A large piece of land with elevation rolling nearly down to the sea in Javea, owned by an upmarket and socially well connected lady by the name of Julia Giménez Muro (Doña Julia). She began to develop El Tosalet urbansiation in 1966 with decend infrastructure (for its day), beautiful homes of typical Mediterranean Alicantine style built with large covered terraces and natural materials such as wood beams, tosca stone (harvested locally in Javea) and terracota floor tiles, surrounded by stunningly landscaped gardens that created a lushness and elegance within the community. Making it extremely popular for wealthy spanish citizens to purchase a property within the enclave of Tosalet in Javea. Today, presiding as probably the most mature urbanisation Javea, it has 3 phases, a well established commuity administration company on site and 24hr surveillance, hense monthly community charges which you need to be informed about when purchasing a property in El Tosalet of Javea.
Is a short drive, half an hours walk or a quick bus ride to the Arenal beach in Javea. This makes Toscal urbanisation very popular with both residents who live here all year as those who want a holiday home next to the beach.
