There are not a few villages that would have to be traveled to find one that had such peculiar characteristics as Finestrat. To begin with, its unique orography that takes us from zero meters of altitude, on its beaches, to more than a thousand of its impressive Puig Campana in less than 10 km.
We continue with a pure Mediterranean landscape, almost intact; marked by hills covered with pine trees or typical crops: almond, olive and carob trees, enlivened by small orchards, where orange, pomegranate and medlar trees bloom. But not only the weather, the situation or landscape, make Finestrat a desirable place. There is also his personal character of town, former Muslim farmhouse, which has managed to remain without major changes, even in its physical structure.
To live in Finestrat is to be part of a quiet and not at all bustling community, which has the attractions of first-class tourist centers at hand. Only fifteen minutes from a good road you can be immersed in the spectacular tourist and urban hustle and bustle of Benidorm, or the calmer and always restless Altea or Villajoyosa.
In Finestrat, you can practice multiple sports. From the sea, to the high mountain. We have a sports center, swimming pool, pediment and a multipurpose court.
In Finestrat, you can taste from international cuisine to the Mediterranean and the most typical dishes of the region such as “l’arrós amb fesols”, “les tarongetes”, “la coca”, and a variety of sweets among which you can Highlight “l’arrop and size”.
