Perched airily above one of Spain’s loveliest pebble coves, beautifully and personally decorated, this house dazzles as soon as you step inside. It was designed in two stages by two hands but its quirks add to its specialness – there cannot be another like it, it’s a symphony of luscious white shapes and blond timber, the perfect holiday house. You have the turquoise water to the east and the green nature park to the west, a splendid paved pool, a couple of terraces and plenty of sitting space indoors. The oak door headrest of the big bed gives the top-floor master bedroom great character, it has both balcony and roof terrace, bath and shower. Other bedrooms, though smaller, are just as attractive and the constant sound of wind and waves covers any noise the neighbours might make. Dive into classic Spanish seaside life in Javea and Moriaria, spend all day snorkelling among the rocks of ‘your’ cove: there are bars for survival; or turn away from the sea to explore the marvellous walking paths of the Granadella Nature Park; or drive into the interest-packed hinterland. A fine place for families and friends.
