How to get to us?
Flying into The Costa Blanca you have a choice of 3 airports, Alicante being the favourite at only 35 minutes away from the house. Murcia and Valencia are both about 1 hour 30 minutes away. A good website to find a flight is www.skyscanner.net they search for all the cheap flights that are out there.
From Alicante Airport
When you have collected your hire car your first junction will be a large new roundabout, stay in the outside lane from the start and join the N338. Take the second exit off which will say A31 Madrid and underneath A70 Alicante, Benidorm and Valencia in a blue box. DO NOT HEAD STRAIGHT ON TO MURCIA! Keep driving for 23 km along the A7, which will turn into the A70 and then the AP7, just dont turn off and ignore the signs for Benidorm and Valencia heading inland, they want you to take a bypass around Alicante. You will reach the toll after 23km.
Straight to House
Come off the AP7 motorway at Villa Joyosa, Juntion 66. Once through the pay toll turn immediate right at roundabout sign posted Sella. Go over the motorway and take another small turn right, in front of a large gray house. Carry on along that road which is narrow and winding. Once you reach the end at the small roundabout you will come to a tiny roundabout which puts you onto a main road with red cycle lanes. Turn left and head up hill for 2 miles, the turning for The Orange House is on the left once the village is clearly in site, if you reach the roundabout you have gone too far. It might be hard to spot in the dark so take care and look for the house lit up down on the right.
Shopping First or coming from the North
You want to come off at junction 65a for Benidorm and Terra Mitica. At the space ship roundabout turn right and join the N332. Come straight off again for Finestrat and Hypermarket. You have Carrafour 9am till 10pm (closed on Sundays in the Winter) which is massive and has everything. Also Aldi and Lidle etc. To Orange House head uphill to the roundabout with goats on. Go straight over and up a steep hill, past a housing estate on your left, straight on, over another 2 roundabouts past the restaurant Alcazer.
OK last roundabout and most important. Take the last turning which says CV759 La Vila Joiosa and a small sign for campo futbol. The Orange House is the next right, tight turn! If its dark be careful, go past the front of the house and the entrance is signposted on the gates.
