3 bedroom Villa in Benijófar
Villa París is located both in the town of Benijófar and Ciudad Quesada, two exceptional areas of the Costa Blanca, equipped with all services, just a few minutes far from Alicante Airport, near the beautiful beaches of Guardamar and a few kilometers from important golf courses.
Modern style properties, consisting of a spacious living dining room with open plan kitchen, 3 bedrooms, one with dressing room and 2 bathrooms (one en suite). Each private plot is distributed in terrace, parking area, own swimming pool and Mediterranean style garden, each villa has also a solarium with views.
Settled by the Arabs, Benijofar’s name stems from the Arabic word Jofar, meaning ‘pearl’. There is a charming church at its centre which sits within the Plaza de la Constitución, a modernised main square. Nearby, a venue called the Casa de Cultura has a rostrum for live events from theatre to concerts. This building overlooks the north end of the Cañada Marsa Parque, the largest of three public parks in the town.
Benijofar is great for walking and cycling tours around the Path of the Rafaels, the Parc Natural del Mata y Torrevieja and the Rio Segura. Keen hikers have the nearby mountains Sierra de Orihuela and de Callosa within easy reach. The beaches of Guardamar del Segura, Torrevieja and La Mata are accessible by car in under 20 minutes. Keen swimmers can access both indoor and open-air public pools locally. The Aquapark Ciudad Quesada is a nearby water park with plenty of slides while the Lo Rufete Multiaventura Park offers quad biking, horse riding, paintballing, archery, kayaking and more. Golfers have several courses to choose from, with the famous La Finca greens closeby.
There are no hotels in Benijofar, so it’s considered a quiet town tucked away from the hubbub of the nearby seaside resorts. It has a local market on a Tuesday and plenty of international and Spanish bars and restaurants. If the local radius of Benijofar becomes too small, there are strong expat communities in the larger, more modern towns surrounding it, like Formentera del Segura, Algorfa, Ciudad Quesada and Rojales.
Benijofar is relatively small by comparison to its neighbours, but it still attracts second homeowners and expatriates, giving it a multinational feel. There is a high proportion of Northern Europeans in the whole region.
There are both affordable and luxury villas available in Benijofar located a little further from the centre but they offer the advantage of being detached. Closer in, you’ll find bungalows, and townhouses but, unusually, very few apartments.
The shops bring in both British and Dutch brands with many adopting further international produce into their range. There are plenty of banks, gyms, hairdressers, pharmacies and cafes. The post office is one block behind the main square.
Reached by the AP-7 road (off the A7 coastal highway), you can get around by car very easily in Benijofar. There are international trains and flights from Alicante – Murcia International airport is close too. There is a good network of buses to major cities and the coastal resorts.
By the town hall, you’ll find a state medical centre run by Torrevieja hospital which opens every day. 24-hour emergency services are available from Rojales surgery, which is a five mile drive. Medcare offers private and state medical, dental and cosmetic care for Spanish and English speakers. In addition, Torrevieja hosts a network of university hospitals.
Cost of Living
As with many of the southerly resorts of the Costa Blanca, the area is slightly cheaper than the resorts to the north of Alicante. Produce, housing, transport and healthcare services are inexpensive by comparison to Northern Europe.
