Benissa, a town in the Valencia region with a name of Arabic origin, covers some 70 km2 including four kilometres of coastline to delight anyone wishing to enjoy a dream holiday right on the Costa Blanca, bathed by the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.
The best option to enjoy an unrivalled cultural and gastronomic escape is unquestionably a villa rental in Benissa, a charming town where you will feel truly at home, delighting in the convenience and attractions of a privileged setting in the Marina Alta district.
Sightseeing tours around such sites as Alicante University, the Church of the Immaculate Conception, in the Neo-Gothic style, the market of La Lonja, dating from the 16th century, the oldest monument in the town which today hosts art exhibitions of the highest quality, along with the Franciscan Friary, built in 1645, are just some of the numerous cultural attractions offered by Benissa.
A villa rental in Benissa, in what is a wonderful section of Valencia's coastline, will unquestionably give you the chance to enjoy outstanding food and drink, with the boiled octopus (pop i missa) one of the local specialities, although the incredibly extensive culinary repertoire blends typical seafaring specialities with the traditional inland dishes. Another of the gastronomic delights are the cured meats, all the better if washed down by a fine wine. Benissa is the perfect place for this, as grapes mature on the local vines to produce the highly esteemed muscatel wines and the delicious mistela liqueur.
Villa rental in Benissa will allow you to enjoy not only the beaches, the mountains and the succulent food and drink, but also to enjoy such traditional festivities as the highly recommended and distinctive ‘Moors and Christians’, the fiesta in honour of the town's patron, the Holy Child, lasting ten days, and the ‘Feria y Porrat’, covering three weekends and ending with a huge mediaeval fair to commemorate the town's history.
There can be no doubt that a villa rental in the unrivalled town of Benissa is a luxury which everyone should enjoy at least once in their life.
