Fontanars dels Alforins is a peaceful village lying to the south-west of Valencia. It has around 1,000 inhabitants and is a place with great charm which you will fall in love with.
Known for its superb wines, Fontanars combines a beautiful setting with good amenities. It enjoys easy access to the coast, the mountains, and Valencia and Alicante cities and airports, whilst nearby Ontinyent and Villena offer excellent shopping. There is a bustling Sunday market and a much smaller one on Thursday mornings.
Surrounded by vines, olive and almond trees, sunflowers and cereals, each changing season brings its own particular magic to the village and the fields and mountains that enfold it. With extensive tracks, woods and wild land above it, Fontanars is the ideal spot from which to walk, cycle and generally enjoy its picturesque location and colourful traditions. Here, the “real” Spain beckons, offering 2 additional advantages over coastal living during the summer months: much lower humidity and the blessing of cool nights.
