The first house on the street was built by Juan’s great-grandparents, in Modernist style. Next they built this; and, as the family grew, they continued on down! Enter, through the original coach doors, a lofty light room furnished with elegant armchairs, breakfast tables and wood-burner, wafted with lavender; great-grandmama’s wedding tapestry decorates one wall, a dresser displays local products you can buy. Juan lives nearby, but when guests stay, he comes back here, to welcome you with warmth and generosity. As for the renovation, it is a captivating Valencian marriage of old and new. The three Modernist bedrooms are distinguished by their double entrance doors and decorative floors, but all the rooms are extremely fine, with beds of white-painted wrought-iron and polished mahogany, sprigs of rosemary topping fluffy towels, and walls and bedspreads snowy white. Front bedrooms have balconies and there is some coastal-road hum. After a simple but delicious breakfast in the courtyard, stroll along the Paseo Martimo to the popular beach, take a boat to the Islas Columbretes, or borrow bikes for the Via Verde. Wonderful.
