    Hello people, My name is Alberto!
    The Rancho is the name of this house inside the beautiful mountains between La Vall, La Gallinera, and near Gandía. Is a long time that I'm giving life bite to bite to this proyect.

    Right now it's ready to enjoy it. Without big luxurys, for sure, but enough if you are a nature lover. Anyway, you have hot wáter, light,a small bathroom with a shower too.
    Is an excellent place to stay quiet, relaxe, and breathe green nature .

    I'm living in Alicante right know, so the idea will be go to the Rancho just 2 or 3 days at the week. The rest of the time feel free to stay there by your own, make excurtions, walk, and know this quiet and lovely place.

    Is ideal if you have a car, but if not, the nearest shop is in the small town 45 minutes by walk. Meals are not incluid! But you can use the kitchen of course.

    If you have any doubt ask for more information!

    The city of Gandia is situated some 65km south of Valencia and 116km north of Alicante and is one of the largest coastal towns and a rather well kept secret. Traditionally Gandia's tourism is Spanish based with a major part of it coming from Madrid. It seems though that the cat may be out of the bag with more and more foreign tourism coming to the area. With the foreign tourism, we have also seen a rise in the amount of people coming to live.

    Gandia is a thriving centre of commerce, and as such does not rely solely on tourism. The beach and the town are actually some 2km apart which succeeds in separating the summer tourism from day to day living. Imagine, in the middle of August being able to visit the bank in Gandia without fighting through hoards of people waving travellers checks and smelling of suntan lotion, to then be able to visit the beach and be right in the thick of it all. The same advantages also exist in the winter time. Unlike many coastal towns which become deserted as the colder months approach, Gandia itself stays populated and open.

    Oranges are a considerable source of income, but also onions, tomatoes, peppers and many other natural crops in La Conca de la Safor, handled and packed in the many local stores, contribute to the obvious wealth of the area, together with the industries that make the most varied of goods, the shops that sell them and the tourism, which has an important hotel infrastructure distributed along the coastline.
