Finca Vuyatela

About the Finca


What is Finca Vuyatela?

“Vuyatela” is a word derived from the Zulu language. “Vuyatela” can be loosely translated as “come and be happy”.

Finca Vuyatela is a small-scale Boutique stay in the middle of nature.. The owners live on the estate in the nearby cottage. Privacy for guests is guaranteed. Guests can also join us for an excellent dinner. Breakfast is easy, all suites are fully equipped to prepare your own breakfast to enjoy somewhere on the estate. Or do you rather fancy a breakfast on the beach?  Within 15 minutes you have your feet wet.

Upon request an exquisite and tasteful dinner can be prepared. Of course taking into account your wishes for ingredients. But always fresh and with what the season has to offer. With her 25 years of catering experience Patries creates the best dishes with fresh products from the local markets. Often guests find it extremely relaxed, after a ‘busy’ beach-day,  to enjoy their sundowners at home followed by a nice al fresco diner.

What to do?

The environment lends itself perfectly for:

Chilling by the pool, hiking, cycling, golf, an overnight trip to Ibiza, meditation, enjoy the many picturesque bays and beaches in Jávea, visit Valencia, take a tour to the hinterland, water sports, gastronomic enjoyment.

The village of Jávea is about 10 minutes drive and 20 minutes by bike (there are bicycles available). Dénia is on the other side of Montgó mountain also about 20 minutes away. Airports Alicante and Valencia both at about 1 hour and 10 minutes.

The Finca Vuyatela estate is situated on a plot larger than one hectare of land and located in a unique location. Beautiful sea- and mountainviews, vines, olive and almond groves and much more. On the estate there are many shade and sunny spots, to see the first morning sun, to lounge with a book, or to enjoy the sublime view with cool drinks. Jávea and surroundings hosts some of Spain’s most beautiful beaches and bays but also picturesque restaurants and cozy boulevards. Needless to say that hospitality and personal attention is of course a matter of fact in finca Vuyatela.

The ‘Ibizan style’ Finca offers 4 two person apartment suites. Two suites have a kitchenette. All suites were completely renovated in autumn 2018 with a complete new interior and aimed at the ultimate comfort for the guests. Art also plays an important role in the decoration. Sea view from the terrace and some suites. Of course a lovely private swimming pool for our guests as well as a huge ‘garden’.

Javea and surroundings

Even today, this section of Xàbia still conserves its Medieval Layout, a unique network of narrow streets with scattered white façades, arched doorways, Gothic windows and ironworks, all finished with the zone’s characteristic “tosca” sandstone. Strolling through its streets allows us to travel into the past centuries.

In the city centre, the Church called Iglesia de San Bartolomé, was built in the 14th-16th Century; an excellent example of Isabelline Gothic style. In this same square, we can observe two beautiful architectural examples of Estate houses such as the Palau dels Sapena (15th Century) or Casa dels Bolufer (18th-19 Century). On both sides, the church is flanked by the Abastos Municipal Market (1946) and the Town Council building (18th Century, refurbished in 20th Century).

From the East approaching from C/Primicies, we arrive at the Soler Blasco Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum, located in the Palace-House of Antoni Banyuls from the 17th century.  Continuing along the C/Major, we pass by the Casa de Tena (1867) currently the Exhibit Hall of CA Lambert. A few meters away on C/d´Avall, there is a Chapel: Capella de Santa Anna. We descend once more on C/Mayor, where we arrive at the square called Pl. del Convent, where we find the Augustine Convent: Convento de las Agustinas.

If we go up the Av. Príncep d´Asturies, we reach the reconstructed section of the old Medieval City Walls. From here, we can enter the park, Parque Montaner where a former raisin drying facility is located: Riurau dels Català d´Arnauda, which was transferred from its original location; it is the most representative structure which symbolizes the importance of the raisin trade. This neighbour has developed over the years without losing its original charm.

At present, Xàbia Historical City Centre is the City’s Administrative and Government centre. Exploring its streets, we can find all types traditional family-owned shops as well as local “Tapas” bars and other services. You may go shopping in the Abastos Municipal Market where you can purchase local gastronomy products; it has become an essential landmark for our visitors. In addition, every Thursday between approx. 8:30 and 14:00, a weekly Street Market or “Mercadillo” is held in Plaza de la Constitución and Placeta del Convent.

During the year, different Events and Holiday-Festivities, are celebrated such as those dedicated to Jesús Nazareno or the spectacular Fire Monuments that are built in the fire festival: “Hogueras de San Juan” in June.

Patries and Carel and of course our golden retriever, Sjors, are looking forward to your arrival.
