In this part of the region, you will find lush green hillsides and mountains and some really great holiday villas in Costa Blanca region for renting.

Here in the northern part of the Costa Blanca you will discover some beautiful Spanish villages, where life is much the same as it has been for many decades. Here it is that the villagers stick to their siestas each day and ensure that local customs remain part of their everyday life as well.

In fact, you will often find actually being to rent a holiday villa is reasonably easy as there are many Northern Europeans who have chosen to buy second homes here. It is these people in order to keep their villas well maintained will often rent them out during the times of the year when they are not being used.

There are many towns and villages throughout the region where villas can be rented. From towns like Denia to small villages to be found in the Orba and Jalon Valleys. All of which provide you with the perfect base to enable you to explore this part of the Costa Blanca more. Below we look at just what you the areas we have mentioned above can offer to those who choose to visit them.

Denia is a small working town but has close by 20 miles of some of the most beautiful beaches which have been awarded a Blue Flag certificate. However, if you want something exciting to do whilst staying in Denia there are some great rock coves to the south of the town where you can go scuba diving. Here there is the 18th Century Castillo de Denia (Denia Castle), which dominates the town's skyline.

Although the town is very much the same as it has been for many centuries it does offer visits some great shops and cafes. Plus the indoor market is beautiful and almost gives the town a feel like you would find in Nice. In this town, fiestas are a regular occurrence and the biggest one of all that takes place from 22 to 24 June each year is the Hogueras de San Juan.

In the Orba Valley, which is further inland from Denia, you will find some more atmospheric villages. In these villages, time seems to have stopped, as you will find all the old men sitting out in the streets playing dominoes and the only women you are likely to see are those hanging out the washing on the balcony.

But whether you wish to stay in Denia or somewhere in the Orba Valley or the Jalon Valley, you are going to be able to find villas to rent. The best place to start your search is by going online and looking for agents who offer holiday villas in Costa Blanca. Then spend sometime comparing each property to see what each one offers before you make your final decision.
