Villa Jazmin is located in a small community called Cabeço Roïg, which nestles in the foothills of a natural mountain park called La Calderona, approximately 9 Kilometres north of Lliria, in the province of Valencia. A car is essential, since the nearest public transport is in Lliria.
The nearest airport is Valencia (VLC), approximately 35 minutes drive away. Alternatively, you can fly to Alicante (ALC), which is just over 2 hours drive, or Barcelona (BCN) – about 3.5 hours away.
Despite being about 9Km from Lliria, the Villa is easy to find – from the CV-35 main road, there are just three junctions to negotiate. We send full directions, with Photos, once we receive your payment.
Most of the local amenities (shops, bars, restaurants, etc.) can be found in Lliria. You can also find weekly markets on various days in the neighboring towns and villages, such as Marines, Olocau, Betera, and Benaguacil.
The area has a wealth of attractions. The mountains of the Sierra Calderona are great for hiking, horse-riding, and mountain-biking, while for the less strenuous, the local town of Lliria is famous for its music festivals.
Valencia City is ideal for day trips, and has everything from historic cathedrals to the newly-built Ciutat de les Arts i de les Ciències – a fantastic modern complex built along the old riverbed, containing the Palace of the Arts, IMAX Cinema, Science Museum, and possibly the biggest Oceanographic centre in Europe.
Further afield, there are numerous other attractions, from the Wildlife of the Albufera National Park, to the Underground River of the Grutas de San José, to the charming village of Chulilla, teetering on the side of a gorge, with an ancient castle perched on the hillside above.
Of course, Spain is famous for its Fiestas, and without doubt the biggest and most famous of these is Las Fallas, an amazing spectacle with fireworks, parades, and huge papier-mache sculptures…which are burnt to the ground on the last night – March 19th. However, every town and village has its own smaller fiestas at different times of the year – if you ask the local tourist office, there’s a good chance they’ll know of something not too far away.
