Not until next summer - 2006. It's a family holiday with my parents and brothers family. The villa is booked but we'll be looking to book flights within the next couple of months. I'm just forward planning since there will be no foreign holiday this summer (29 weeks pregnant now)
You're 30 weeks aren't you? Are you going away this summer? In the UK?
Thought it might be a last minute booking!
We were going to Ireland for a walking / cycling type holiday - then found out I would be 8 months pregnant and it didn't seem so appealing so we cancelled it.
Will just do day trips now. Last time I was in Javea we flew into Valencia, and its a very easy journey in - you don't go through the city at all, its all motorways until you come off for Javea. Can't remember the Alicante route so much, but it's pretty simple as well.
Valencia is a nice city to visit if you want a change while you are out there.
Been to Javea from Alicante, and just returned from Denia/Oliva via Valencia.
The Autopista A7 (toll motorway) and N322 (nacional - non toll) run parallel to each other all along the coast. Both airports are easy journeys. (Toll not expensive, but you need to take a ticket on entry to the motorway and remember to take Euros to pay!!)
Valencia was 1 hour journey, and Alicante about 1 hour too.
I love the freedom of booking flights/villa/car hire rather than a hotel package. Still a bit of a gamble if you haven't been before, but Javea is nice, if a bit crowded with leathery tanned expats. There is no tack like Benidorm and the paseo along Arenal beach is full of nice bars and restaurants and a craft market at night.
Javea town is lovely too and the market is good for self-caterers. The place you have booked is a drive away from the main town and beach, but in a lovely quiet area as I recall with fab views over Javea bay.
