“España de verdad !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

This was a shot in the dark, which scored a bullseye!
I had been searching for a Spanish seaside resort which was not yet spoiled by gimmicky tourism. After some research I decide to give this resort a try, and rented a nice sounding 9th floor apartment in the centre of town. In all respects I could not have been luckier. The flat was very reasonably priced, it was literally right above a large Consum supermarket, and the street was full of authentic bars with true tapas or pinches, reasonably priced menu del dia restaurants, cheap phone cabin shops and every other thing one could require to ensure every need was met.
Behind our block was a hill with the Castillo de Cullera perched atop it.
We found a circuitous road to take us up to the top whger one could either pay to enter the beautifully restored castle or simply gape at the jaw dropping panorama of Cullera, and the Valencian coast for miles around.
A couple of hundred metres down the street was a beautiful promenade with more restaurants, but well over priced unfortunately. It was full of Spaniards taking their paseo each evening and the crowning glory of this resort for us anyway, was the fact that during the entire week we did not hear a single word of English being spoken, anywhere. Real Spain does still exist here, so far ! Volveremos pronto !
