I forgot to say the owner of the hotel, Vincent, had a bottle of Cava Reserve in a bucket full of ice & on a stand brought to our table at dinner on my birthday, compliments of the hotel. As we had been sitting out on our terrace drinking red wine just before dinner we had opted for water at dinner & I didn't really enjoy the Cava actually, always thought Cava was like Andrews liver salts. Later I said thank you to Vincent & told him we'd already had over a bottle of red wine & he just winked & said 'it will make you frisky then!'
When we drove home along the N332 we stopped off in Javea, such a pretty place with a small port. There are many cafes along the front there & we stopped at one for coffee for my
better other half & beer for me, as I don't drive. The cafe had English newspapers so we sat there almost an hour reading & basking in the hot sun.
We also walked past a cafe with a notice board outside which said something like 'March offer, seafront double rooms, ensuite 30€' & we looked up & saw little balconies each with two chairs & a small table with French doors on a few floors. Talk about picture postcard stuff! We did ask if we could view a room with the idea of going next month or maybe on another trip but, to our amazement, (there was only one customer sitting outside already served with her coffee) we were told they couldn't do that as it meant leaving the cafe unattended & they asked us to return some hours later! The guy who owns it & who spoke to us was Mike Walsh, ex footballer for Bolton & Everton. He said to look on their website so obviously I expected to see a room but no!
Anyway, it was in a great position so I will do another plug, it's LA MARINA PENSIONS (click coloured link) & the rooms are reasonable priced, just wished we had been able to see one. SEE PRICES HERE (Site took ages to load for me BTW).
