Thank you for this information sortedtoo, it sounds very nice there, my sister will have a car so I will pass on the information and she can go exploring the area, I think I am more excited now about it than her.

Thanks.

no........definately not!

tell her to avoid Javea Park area - near the Arenal - at night

unless she's after a not-so-pleasant way to make a living

although there is a very good Indian restaurant there

Thank you lynnxa, that is a relief, I feel she may venture in for the curry though, unless they deliver !

You are all very kind with your information, thank you.

why not go on to google earth, you'll be able to have a look at the real ground, albeit might be a few months out of date.

I can make out our pool, but it's not a great image so it's pretty hard to see how built up it is

There is a lovely book written by Derek Lambert, called Spanish Lessons, although I had read it years ago I bought it in a charity shop in Jalon when we were out at Easter and read it again, its all about the area, and mentions the mountain many times. I think it was set in the early 80's but its good really worth a read.
