Take a step back in time to a medieval village, tucked in the mountains near the coast of Spain. Polop de la Marina—or Polop—offers picturesque streets, stunning mountains, and the vibrant beauty of the Mediterranean Sea.
Polop sits in the Autonomous Community of Valencia, a region comprised of three provinces: Castellón, Valencia, and Alicante, where you’ll find our Polop vacation rentals. Alicante is known for its medieval castle, Santa Bárbara, and the bustling resorts along the shores. Though Polop is only eight miles from the Costa Blanca, you’ll feel totally removed from the crowds, while retaining easy access to their attractions.
Of course, a village founded in the 10th century is surrounded by incredible history. Simply walking the narrow, stone-laden streets will take you back in time. But no trip to Polop would be complete without a visit to the 12th-century castle, perched on a hill overlooking the village and dramatic mountainscapes that surround it. Polop even celebrates an annual Medieval Market in June, where attendees dress in traditional medieval garb and the city is transformed to how it must have appeared in the Middle Ages.
Our Polop apartment rentals offer access to some of Spain’s most beautiful terrain, from mountains to beaches. The mountain Montgó towers above the town at 2,470 feet, and the hills surrounding it offer hikes for all skill levels. Las Fuentes del Algar—or the Algar Waterfalls—are a popular swimming hole with gently cascading waterfalls, perfect for cooling off in the hot summers. You’ll also be just eight miles from the Costa Blanca, where you’ll find resorts, restaurants, nightlife, and of course the warm waters of the Mediterrannean.
