Flea market / Antique market in Xalo (Jalon)

Jalón is well-known for its wine production and the well-known flea market.
The antique / flea market is every Saturday from 9 am to 2.30 pm and is rightly mentioned the best in the region.

The flea market takes place in front of the wine cooperative and extends over 300 meters. There are more than a hundred stalls. There are many interesting but also less interesting items, offered from old to brand new.
There is a wide choice ranging from furniture to jewelry and curiosities.

At 1.30 pm many traders begin to pack, so come early.

Outside the flea market, in Xaló / (Jalón), wine cooperative Virgin Probe and the botanical garden Finca la Cuta are also worth a visit.

Jalón is only 15 km from the holiday home in Calp removed. You can reach it in 19 minutes via the N332.

El Castillo de Guadalest

Guadalest with Castle and Reservoir

The historic town of Guadalest is well worth a visit. Guadalest is inland within a half an hour’s drive from Calp.

It is a village with only 200 inhabitants. However, 2 million tourists arrive annually. This is mainly due to the unique location of Guadalest. It is like a crows nest in the mountains and can only be reached via a tunnel in the rocks. Afterwards, you will be treated to a formidable view of the mountains and the reservoir.


On this reservoir is daily (except on Saturday) a boat trip with a fully solar-powered boat. The trip with the Barco Solar is 50 minutes.

The castle, El Castell de Guadalest, was built by the Moors in the 12th century AD. The remains of the castle and the later built house (17th century) are open to visitors.

Valencia-Turia Gardens

Valencia Citytrip

Along with Alicante Valencia is one of the two entrances to the Costa Blanca.
Valencia is located about one and a half hour drive from Calp and is ideal for a city trip.

Mercado Central
For those who like fish, meat and fruit, this is a beautiful market Hall.
A range of fresh products, flavours and colours in a historic building. The offer may even lead to choice stress: you do not know what to choose. Can easily withstand the comparison with La Boccaria in Barcelona.
It is centrally located and it is advisable to go there early in the morning. Later in the day it can look very busy. Open from 7 am-3 pm.

Turia Gardens
Another highlight of Valencia can be found in the reclaimed Riverbed of the Turia, also known as the Turia gardens.
The dry riverbed has been transformed into a powerful expression of modern urban design and architecture. Beautiful buildings surrounded by vast gardens with water features.
As soon as you walk in the park or cycle do you feel the rest. A green lung in the heart of the city.
At the end of the Turia is

Bioparc Valencia
Beautifully Bio-animal park with respect for nature and animal, with respect for the natural habitat of several animal species (endangered) is imitated. The film documentary ‘ the heirs of the arc ‘ and the animal shows in the amphitheatre are well worth it.

Oceanografic is more than just fish tanks, it has a beautiful Sea Aquarium.
Partially above ground and partly underground you see dolphins, sharks, manta rays etc. to pass you by. Underground you walk through a fairly long glass tunnel, where you get the idea that you can walk on the seabed and a variety of large and small fish species pass you on all sides.
You will also find sea lions, seals and penguins.
