The Experience

Three doors from the birthplace of the Borgia popes is an exquisitely renovated silk workshop – the coolest B&B in town. Ian and Josechu began the renovation in 2006 and the intelligent simplicity of design reflects the serenity of the owners. There are sloping beams in top-floor bedrooms, WiFi, books, games, stone steps and steep stairs and two small outdoor spaces.

The dining room sits under a large skylight and freshly squeezed oranges at breakfast are a delight – this is orange country. The outdoor space at the top has stunning views: gaze on Monte Vernisa and Xàtiva’s castle and various hilltop chapels beyond. (The sunsets, too, are a glory.)

The ancient doors of the house open onto a tiny cobbled street just a short walk to the central plaza with a tinkling fountain, the perfect spot for a coffee and good people-watching but there are some fabulous walks straight from the front door. It’s rare to find such peace.

Accommodation

Reviews

Excellent place to stay and Ian was a most informative host, with great restaurant recommendations and also answered all the questions about this fascinating city. Parking not easy but when you get to casa Aldomar it is tranquil especially on either of the two roof terraces.

Location

The neighbourhood

This is the capital of the region of La Costera and filled with interesting history. There are some fine walks by the castle and lots of good restaurants in town. It's just a 38-minute train ride to Valencia from the station with frequent trains. Or hire a car and visit the Machu Picchu of Spain, hike through the Navarrés Forest, visit the Simat monastery at La Valldigna or simply sit in the old town.

Local points of interest from Ian Burrell & Josechu Durán

  • Xàtiva castle, part of which dates back to the Romans, is part of one of the most impressive set of fortifications in the region of Valencia and has superb views.
  • Castle Mount, the site of an ancient Iberian, and then Roman city has two historic churches, archeological excavations, an ice house and two caves that can be visited. One of these, Doves' Cave, has an altar to the Virgin carved into the rock.
  • The Casa de la Ensenyança Fine Arts Museum regularly hosts exhibitions, including loans from El Prado in Madrid and has a fine collection in its own right.
  • The Almodí Museum of History has exhibits tracing the city's development from the Iberians, Romans and Moors to the present day.
  • Xàtiva's basilica hosts a small museum explaining the city's links to the two Spanish Borgia popes and the Borgia family's origins in Xàtiva. The bell tower offers superb views over the city.
  • The "Black Cave" an easy river-side hike of just over an hour from Xàtiva is the site of one of only 13 places known in Iberia to have been used by the Neanderthals.

Introducing

Ian Burrell & Josechu Durán

Ian, from the UK and Josechu from Galicia are two old friends who first met in London over 20 years ago. After years carefully searching for the right place to set up their boutique guest house together they finally settled on Xàtiva. They have welcomed guests of over forty nationalities since then, and love inspiring them with stories of local history, festivals and cuisine. They each live a few minutes away from the house.
