Villa Joyosa, far from the madding crowd  

We just finished a great trip to Villa Joyosa in the Costa Blanca, our mains reason for being in the area was because, we went to fix up the house in Finistrat and we where able to go to the beach at Villa Joyosa everyday. Before going to the beach we spent some 4 hours each day on painting, plastering and general cleaning of the house in Finistrat to try and get it sold. The house has no electricity or water but we made do and in the most parts it was very Romantic, sitting by candlelight and having breakfast on the Veranda and due to the house proximity to the mountains we had great star gazing, not to mention a huge lighting storm.

We made the 15 minute car journey to the lovely beach at villa Joyosa and soaked up some rays. Villa Joyosa is far from the madding crowd of the Benidorm beaches and has some lovely Spanish style houses and apartments painted in all different colours overlooking the sea. There are also lots of great little restaurants and cafes. As we didn’t have any water we collected water from the foot showers on the beach in 8 litter bottles so that we could have a shower at night, we left them on the beach whilst we went swimming to get warm. We were a picture with our 8 liter bottle with holes in the cap for a shower faucet, one on the ladder, the other under the bottle pretending it was the best shower in the world. The beach at Villa joyosa made it all worthwhile.

We managed to get a nice holiday and didn’t have to pay for a hotel for most of the stay.

We decided near the end of the week to stay at El Mercat, actually I was surprised as my partner booked it before we left good o’l blighty as a little treat, very nice !!. El Mercat is situated near the Square in Villa Joyosa with easy walking distance to the beach and restaurants.

El Mercat is a Hostel and is clean, comfortable and very central. It could easily be classed as a small hotel and even has self catering apartments to make the stay cheaper. We would definitely recommend it.  😉 If you want more information on this hotel check it out here

  1. This design is spectacular! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
