Orba is a typical country village with a total population of around 2,600
located in the north of the Costa Blanca region of Spain. It is approximately 15
to 20km inland from the popular coastal resorts of Javea and Denia, and a little
over a 1 hour drive from the major airports of Valencia and Alicante (both
served by many of our lower cost airlines). If you are looking for a quiet break
away from it all, Orba has all the facilities required to support your holiday,
including a small supermarket, various small shops (bakery, greengrocer etc..),
banks, a pharmacy, medical and dental surgeries, plus many bars and restaurants.
English is now spoken quite widely in Orba, so a minimal knowledge of Spanish is usually enough to get you by. In particular both the Caixa Rural and Santander banks usually have an English speaking member of staff on duty in their branches.
While the character of the old village remains essentially unchanged, the surrounding areas have been developed with careful planning, the hillside residence of L'Aspre being one such addition. Being a conservation area, each of the villa sites was chosen to blend in with the existing architecture and landscape. Particular attention was paid to the positioning of each site to offer panoramic views over the citrus, almond and olive groves and the surrounding pine-clad hills. We honestly believe that our villa offers some of the best views available, and the picture on this page shows the actual view from our patio out over the village.
Whilst there is no problem driving around the village, some of the side streets are quite narrow, so it may be easier to leave your car at your villa or at the edge of the village, and to explore on foot. The centre of the village is approximately 1Km from our villa.
