Chocolademuseum 2Culture: In addition to the cities named in Costa Blanca, Castalla is definitely worth a visit. Castalla is a medieval town in the Alicante region with about 10,000 inhabitants where few tourists are visiting. It is a typical Spanish town with passionate residents and numerous festivals. There is a chocolate museum right nearby in Villajoyosa and a nougat museum in Xixona / Jijona; both are very nice to visit. Ibi has a toy museum. A tourist attraction is El Castell de Guadelest. Lovers of Art Deco can indulge in Novelda. Local culture is to be found in the many markets that the area has to offer. Tibi has a goat farm with its own dairy. It also offers tours.

Nature: Casa Costa Blanca is located near the Carrascal de la Font Roja national park. This is one of the best-preserved natural areas of the Valencia territory with an area of 2298 acres. At Bizot you can visit beautiful limestone caves. Lake Tibi is interesting to visit and at the coast salt lakes with flamingos and beautiful dune landscapes with old fishermen’s houses can be found. The road to Alcoy is lovely. You will find a popular hiking area around the Verde route, a railway line where no train has ever passed.

Sports: Sports fans have plenty of choice. There are beautiful beaches on the Costa Blanca where numerous water sports, such as parasailing, water skiing, diving, and banana boat riding can be done. Beach volleyball, golf, and horse riding are also popular with both locals and tourists. For children, visiting Bonalba is great. It has a beautiful pool with palms and a separate area with a wellness spa where you can book a variety of treatments. This resort also features beautiful golf courses. The immediate surroundings of Casa Costa Blanca are popular with mountain bikers. Of course you can bring your own bike, but there is also a possibility to hire one in Castalla or Alicante.

Culinair:  For Spanish people eating is a feast. It is not unusual for friends and family to share a large table to socialize and laugh and talk during meals. This country has a varied cuisine, although you will have to take into account the fact that Spanish people eat late. During lunchtime you can also enjoy the great food this kitchen has to offer. The choice is overwhelming. If you simply prefer to prepare their own meals, you will find in Castalla a variety of supermarkets where you can obtain whatever you like, such as delicious steaks or large shrimps for your own barbeque while enjoying a fine glass of Spanish wine.
