Resort Description for Denia


Properties in Denia are as high a value now as ever, and there’s an abundant supply for sale.  You may be interested in investing in villas for sale in Denia or other options, and when you consider what the town offers, you’ll be convinced. Denia is a town of 45,000 permanent residents, near Javea on Spain’s charming Costa Blanca. 

It is huddled at the feet of a large hill on which stands its chief attraction, the 11th century castle.  Within the castle is the Palau del Governador.The shore surrounding Denia is always dotted with sailboats—the town brings in a lot of its revenue with its port business.  The fishing town has ferry connections to Mallorca and Ibiza.  Like many small Costa Blanca villages, Denia has a history of suffering invasions from outside forces, whether French or Arab. 

It was reclaimed by the Spanish crown at the dawn of the 19th century, and then began its march to becoming a thriving fishing center. Recently the town has experienced a real estate boom.  Long term rentals and apartments for sale in Denia are as good an investment now as ever.  Those who choose to live in the village can easily travel to Alicante, Javea, and Valencia, not to mention the ferry trip to Ibiza or Mallorca. 

They’ll just want to be sure to be in town for the spectacular festivals.  In July, it’s the Bulls at the Sea, The Bous a la Mar, much more interesting than the Running of the Bulls, since it involves the sea.  People take to the water to avoid the charging beasts, an experience not to be missed.  In March, it’s the bonfire festival in which—this is true—people set fire to paper mache effigies of famous people.  For some of the most interesting and unique parties known to man, you must come to Denia.

Denia remains small, with a tourism draw but not too much of one.  Property for sale in Denia is, therefore, a wise investment for a wide variety of property buyers.


Denia was once a substantial Roman settlement. But Denia’s most popular attractions are still its wonderful Blue Flag beaches and marina. The cove-pocked stretch Les Rotesh in the south. The strange, bald peak of Mount Montgó (shaped like an elephant´s head) looms above the town and is perfect for hiking and picnicking. There is a huge choice of luxury penthouses to more modest studio or one bedroom apartments. If you are looking for an apartment in a busy traditional Spanish town then Denia is the place for you.

There are a multitude of restaurants and bars within Denia itself, and La Sella has its own restaurant and coffee shop, along with a useful pharmacy. La Sella nestles behind the Denia Marriott Hotel, which houses a magnificent 18 hole golf course and luxury spa facilities. The area is full of beautiful villas and luxury apartments and even houses a fabulous Buddhist Temple. You will find a large choice of properties around the Montgo mountain and also La Sella golf resort.

Also within the village of La Sella there are tennis and horse riding facilities and several communal swimming pools. The Montgo National Park is a few minutes drive away. Other places worth visiting are Moraira which is a 20 minute drive away, and in the other direction the lovely coastal town of Gandia, a 45 minute drive. Your holiday can be as active or relaxed as you want it to be.

Denia is one of the many great destinations on the Costa Blanca.  Our villas often include gardens, balconies, terraces, and almost all give you an amazing view of Denia and of the Mediterranean. 

Denia is a small village of 40,000, with a bit more in Summer. It boasts 20 km of coastline, with beaches ranging from sandy to rocky.  Families hang out on the vast sandy beaches, while adventurous divers take advantage of the rocky ones.  No matter your preference, yu’ll have to agree that Denia is a spectacular beach town.  It’s also a town of great history, and it sports spectacular ruins, with the castle being chief among them. Outside of town, heading toward Javea, are several quaint windmills.

However, the little town of Denia has even more in store for you than that, with a few surprises up its sleeve.  Take, for instance, the amazing Bous a la Mar event in July.  Here, bulls charge down Marques de Campo, chased by daring spectators into the sea.  Sometimes it’s hard to know who’s chasing whom, but no one seems to get hurt.

On the subject of sports, the town also has a football team, Club Deportivo Denia, which sports the blue and gold and plays at Estadio Diego Mena Cuesta.  The club, like other elements of the town, has a rich tradition, dating all the way back to 1927.

If you are interested in spending a Summer or any other season in Denia, long term villas are one of your best options.  We can give you the knowledge of the real estate market and the individualized touch that will help you come up with only the best options for your needs.  Whether you are bringing in friends and want to impress them with a luxurious beach life, or whether restaurants and relaxing in a nightclub is more your style, we have the accommodations for you.
