About Villalonga

Villalonga (4,500 inhabitants approx) is a small, typical working town of the Valencian region of south eastern Spain. It is surrounded by orange groves and is on the edge of the Safor National Park with great walking, climbing and cycling opportunities. It’s about a twelve minute drive to the main local town of Gandia and about fifteen minutes to Oliva, the other major local centre of population. Both those towns give easy access to the beautiful sandy beaches for which the area is known. There is a municipal swimming pool in Villalonga which opens during the summer. The house is within easy walking distance of all amenities: the medical centre, two dentists, the vet, a good-sized supermarket, several banks, many bars and three local schools. There are two markets per week.
