Casa Castillo Denia

Casa Castillo Denia is a beautiful village house situated at the historic Barrio Les Roques in Denia, Alicante, Spain. The property is right next to the Denia Castle and the city centre, hence its name.

Denia has a population of about 42,000 and mostly consists of locals. The locals of Denia are known to be friendly, calm and close knit people. Denia is also part of the Costa Blanca or the White Coast which stretches to over 200 kilometres along the southeastern Mediterranean coastline, from Denia in the north to Torrevieja in the south of Alicante. 

Casa Castillo Denia can accommodate up to five persons and it sits right at Barrio Les Roques, Denia’s traditional neighborhood–for a feel of the Spanish culture and charm. As for some traditional Spanish gastronomic experience while in Denia, head to Calle Loreto; this lane is filled with a great mix of enticing restaurants and cafes.

Pasándolo Bomba: La Trastienda Tapas

Apart from the magnificent views of the Spanish outskirts that you’ll enjoy, travelling by land from Valencia to Madrid can be fun, enjoyable, and comfortable, too. Thanks to ALSA bus fleet’s modern travel and leisure services. ALSA is a leading Spanish bus operator which caters to the EU states and even to some North African countries.

We booked a SUPRA Class in one of ALSA’s modern buses and the business class-like ride was indeed a superior treat. “Ladies and Gentlemen, we’d like to direct your attention to the screen in front of you..” Sadly, there wasn’t any actual or onscreen safety demonstration like in airplanes; yet, we had individual screens for movies-on-the-road and a travel attendant who served snacks and drinks during the trip. ¡Qué disfrutando de la vida!

After a seven-hour journey from Valencia, we headed straight to downtown Madrid to have some refreshments by the Plaza de Chueca. Here are some photos of what we had for just a casual dinner for three at La Trastienda Tapas.

Our friendly local host, Juan Carlos (not the former King of Spain), wanted us to try some local Madrileña specialties and if not for him, we wouldn’t have found this gastronomic gem in the country’s capital. This place is secretly situated at one corner, near the fruits and vegetables market, on the second floor of Mercado de San Antón en la Calle de Augusto Figueroa, Madrid.

Tapas de La Llaura-Dora

La Llaura-Dora is a casual dining restaurant in Denia, Alicante, Spain. It is situated in one of Denia’s oldest buildings—The Building of the Monks (Edificio de los Monjes). This building is said to be about 450 years old and it used to be an abbey and a learning institution for children.

When one walks through Calle Loreto, you will immediately find La Llaura-Dora as it stands out among the entire stretch of restaurants. Aside from the old-fashioned façade, you’ll notice it right away because it’s so orange (perhaps it’s just seasonal). A friendly waiter will greet you and bring you to your desired table.

They serve traditional Valencian cuisine and you’ll have an option to be seated either inside or outside of the restaurant; so it’s a choice between a quiet, antique-filled interior or the lively atmosphere on the street. There will be occasional jewelry/souvenir vendors who will approach your table. The seating capacity would probably be around 50-60 people on a packed, busy evening.

On a fine summer day, just before the sun sets, one would prefer to be seated outside to have a nice view of the busy Calle Loreto. And as evening draws near, this quaint Spanish town’s architecture changes colour, and, thus, a warm air of bliss completes the ambience.

After a tour of the Denia Castle or after sun tanning at Punta Raset beach, whether you’re having Sangria or sparkling water, the following dishes are highly recommended:
