La Drova Valencia, Spain

La Drova must rank as one of the most beautiful, secluded and convenient urbanisations in Spain. It is located within a valley bounded by mountains on two sides, one of which, Monduver, the highest mountain at 847m (2,500+), dominates the area with its sharp summit clearly visible from all directions. These peaks give the area spring water you can drink and verdant countryside that is the foreground for the spectacular mountain views that form a beautiful backdrop everywhere you look.

La Drova (“The Drive”) gets its name from being the lowest point that sheep or cattle could be driven through the area. La Drova has existed since medieval times and was given to the monks of Santa Maria de la Valldigna in 1300 as a place for invalids to recover in the clean, cool mountain air. It is a tranquil and beautiful valley, surrounded by mountains, and is popular with summer visitors from Gandia and Barcelona as well as various European people who have moved here permanently and the many old Valencian families from Gandia and Barx who live here.

La Drova is located fifteen minutes drive to 7 kilometres of award winning Blue Flag beaches of Gandia. We believe it to be one of the best beaches on the Mediterranean, which is mainly frequented by Spanish nationals. The international airports of Alicante (1 1/4 hrs) and Valencia (50 minutes) are close by and easily accessible via the excellent arterial A7 motorway. Madrid is four hours drive.

The surrounding area is ideal for walking, biking, mountain biking, and horse riding.

Close to La Drova is the village of Barx, the only mountain community in the La Safor region. The village includes bars, restaurants, supermarkets and a bank. The ancestors of Barx can be traced back over 1000 years.

Puig-Mola is a small residential community that lies just to the west of Barx.
