Hotel Spain

Guess what?

You no longer need a vacation from your vacation – if you book your stay at Finca Escondida. 

Imagine this: you’re not waking up from the miserable alarm clock, but from some chirping birds. Ah, you’re on holiday. Looking for a rustique hotel in Spain? Why not book your stay at our luxury bed and breakfast? Hotel-quality, but more chill. On this page we’ll tell you everything you need to know. 

About our hotel in Spain 

Imagine combining a beautiful property (finca) on a hidden (escondida) green land, 300 sunny days a year and comfortable rooms? Those are the ingredients for a success recipe which is called Finca Escondida. Our hotel is situated in Xàtiva, in the Valencian region. Perfect to combine the vibrant city of Valencia (which is a 50-minute drive from our B&B) with the tranquility of Finca Escondida. 

The hotel facilities

We have 2 luxury hotel rooms (with ensuite bathroom) which both have stunning views to the green, floral garden. In total there’s 3.200 m2 land filled with grass to chill (or to do some yoga on), fruit trees where you can grab some fruits during your stay and a shared pool. 

What you see, is what you get:

✓ Stunning views
✓ A super soft boxspring bed
✓ Bamboo sheets (super soft, super cool in summer and completely cruelty-free!)
✓ A private bathroom with rain shower
✓ Nespresso coffeemaker and a kettle
✓ A fresh, vegetarian breakfast by the pool
✓ An enormous (fruit) garden – where you can pick some fruits if you’d like
✓ Wifi + AC at the rooms 
✓ A tv with Chromecast – so you can stream your favorite shows. (Although we highly doubt you will use it – since there is so much to see and to do here!)

One of the rooms (Koh Pha Ngan) in our hotel in Spain. As you can see, you’ll have stunning views from this room. You can sleep here with 1 or 2 persons. 

What is the difference between a B&B and a hotel in Spain?

To be honest: not so much. You might be looking for a hotel in Spain – but what we have to offer you might be better. You’ll have private rooms with a hotel-worthy bed and all the facilities you can expect in a luxury hotel. Also – no boring buffets, but a fresh vegetarian breakfast will be served right to your table near the pool. 

Another difference? We live on the same land. In that way we can give you a more personalized experience: we’ll wait for you with a welcome drink and give you all the ins and outs of this place. There’s a pool which you’ll share with others – but that’s actually the same as in a hotel. Even though you’ll see us around, we will respect your privacy. But we are also open for a good conversation over a glass of wine. 

Want to know more about us? We’ll introduce ourselves here!

What to do in & around this B&B in Xàtiva?

Want to explore the Valencian region a bit more? We can definitely support that! Jody – one of the B&B hosts – fell in love with this region in 2013. She had a traineeship in the city of Valencia. She loved the vibrant city and also visited towns around (including Xàtiva – little did she know back then). She always said: one day I will come back. And guess what? I didn’t only come back, I took Sander (the other B&B host ;-)) with me and started Finca Escondida. See below which activities you can do in the surroundings. 

What you can do around our hotel in Spain

kasteel xativa

Castle of Xàtiva

Xàtiva is well-known for its castle ‘Castillo the Xàtiva’. It is a historic fortress located in the town – overlooking the surrounding countryside.  The castle has a rich and storied history dating back over a thousand years.

This fort is originally built by the Iberians and later expanded and fortified by the Romans, Visigoths and Moors, each leaving their mark on its architecture and design. In the Middle Ages, it became an important strategic stronghold for the Kingdom of Valencia, serving as a key defensive position against invading forces.

You can go here by car – it’s about 15 minutes by car to the top. Or walk within 30 minutes from the historic city centre. 

xativa centrum

Xàtiva's city centre

Although you might never heard from Xàtiva, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do. The ‘Socarrats’ (the name of the inhabitants in this town) know how to throw a good party!

During summer they host ‘Fira the Agosto’, the August-festivities with fire works, a funfair and all kinds of events. During Christmas there is a big Christmas stall and Christmas market and during the year there are many parades – for example during ‘Fallas’ and ‘Los 3 reyes’ (3 kings). 

The city centre offers a variety in restaurants: from traditional Spanish food up to Italian and Indian restaurants. Oh – and in the weekend at night the terraces on the big market are packed! A must-go. 

gandia beach

Beaches

Ready to rock the beach? Within 45 minutes you can dip your toes in the sand or the Mediterranian Sea. The closest beach is Gandia – with a broad boulevard that gives you an instant holiday feeling. The nearby Gandia-town is also nice to visit. 

Other beaches to visit are those in Cullera, Oliva or a bit further in Javea and Denia.

 

Valencia & Alicante

Xàtiva is located between Valencia and Alicante – and you can fly on both airports to stay at Finca Escondida. Valencia is about 50 minutes by car and Alicante takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes by car. 

Also, there’s a direct train line between Xàtiva and Valencia and takes about an hour to get here. Even better: in 2024 you only pay 10 euros per person for unlimited train rights on regional trains. We can help you get this low fare if you are here. 

We know all ins and outs about Valencia – and where to go. And we can give you a few insider-tips about Alicante too. Or you can just wander around yourselves, there’s enough to do. 

paella albufera

Albufera's rice fields

You can’t leave Spain without trying paella. The traditional rice dish is a typical lunch dish. The source of the rice is Albufera  – a national park 45 minutes away from Xàtiva. 

The ‘paella Valenciana’ is typical for this region and usually is prepared with rice, saffron, chicken, rabbit and some fresh vegetables. The fish-version is ‘paella marisco’ and for the vegetarians amongst us, more and more restaurants offer ‘paella de verduras’ (vegetable paella). 

And why not eat it right at it’s source? In the nature park you’ll find different villages where you can eat this dish freshly prepared. We are happy to make a reservation for you. 

guadelest

A unique experience

This area has so much to offer. From hiking in ‘Chorradores’ or visiting the blue lakes of Guadalest. Looking for a personalized experience? We’ve got you covered! 

We can help you with booking excursions, make a personalized roadtrip or even planning your whole trip! Just contact us – and we’re happy to help.  

How to arrive @ Finca Escondida?

To arrive at our B&B, you’ll need a car. We’re surrounded by mountains and stunning views. But you’re definitely not in the middle of nowhere – a car ride of only 10 minutes will bring you in the centre of traditional Xàtiva. 

We recommend you book your car at the airport. Have you visited Spain before? Then it’s probably not a surprise that the streets here are quite narrow. In case you don’t feel like Max Verstappen in Formula 1 – we recommend to you not renting the biggest car of the company. A
 

Next winter we’re planning to make an extra parking in our garden – with a wider entrance for cars. For now, trust the parking sensor 😉 or we can help you navigate through the gate.  Got any questions? You can send us an email by clicking on this link (we’ll respond within 2 business days) or send us a WhatsApp message (+34 649 998 722) – we’ll usually respond within 2 hours during the day.
