It’s amazing what a bit of sunshine and relaxation by the sea can do for the soul. We recently went to the little town Oliva, south of Valencia, Spain for nine days where we’d hired a villa near the beach. The area was perfect - quiet, hardly any tourists (majority Spanish), gorgeous, shallow beaches and endless stretches of orange trees.
We had already decided beforehand that we didn’t want to spend our days sightseeing, driving to one town or village to the other, so we spent most days going to the beach, having a siesta, playing in the pool, eating ice creams and then back to the beach. This is what we did most days apart from a visit to the weekly market and to a nearby water park and it was perfect.
We were a bit sad leaving, but we’re pretty sure we’ll be back, hopefully in a not too distant future!
Here are a few photos from our holiday:
