La Casa Grande de Sella

There are actually two houses, Casaroc and Roc House but we open the dividing door and, hey presto, La Casa Grande! They're both traditional village houses, restored and rebuilt about 12 years ago. There are two of everything - bathroom, kitchen, terrace, washing machine, front door etc. Most of the winter months the houses are rented to walkers and climbers - our small business advertises under the name Las Casas del Raval de Sella on - but it's a lifestyle business so we don't want to work all year round. Liz and I currently live a few doors down the street - the highest street in the village with lovely views across the rooftops and mountains and down to the sea, 16 km away.
The dates are when WE want to travel, but YOU can choose whenever you like.

About the location

Sella is about 450 metres up the Aitana mountainside - we look across to several mountain peaks, principally the Puig Campana, at 1408 m the second highest around. Highest point is the Aitana summit, 1505. just around the back of the village. We hace route cards and guide books for walks both easy and challenging, there's a 40 km hard mountain bike trail well waymarked through the village, over the hills and far away, and last year Chris Froome and others sped through the village as the mountain section of the Vuelta a EspaƱa. But in July and August the municipal pool is open, there are two natural spring-fed pools available all year round for swimming and in February the hills are awash with pink and white almond blossom. Sella is a small village of 600 souls with 6 bar/restaurants, two shops, two wood-fired bakeries, a bank and a chemist's. The glorious sandy beaches of Villajoiosa are 20 minutes away and Benidorm, if you like that sort of thing, is also nearby. Safari parks, water parks, theme parks abound down near the coast but Sella is quiet, unspoilt and a haven of peace and relaxation with Alicante airport less than an hour away by car - and you'll need a car. Sella has one bus a day...
