Forget the hordes in the glorified housing estates by the coast, come and see the Real Spain with its small towns built into hills with its medieval streets and its castles on top of every hill.Visit great authentic restaurants and bars paying a fraction of the price you would at the coast. Hotel Rural Mas Fontanelles is located just outside the beautiful small town of Biar, 45 minutes drive from Alicante airport. It is a 9 room hotel geared up for relaxation. We had room number 9 which is an annexe just off the hotel with its own courtyard for sunbathing with table and chairs. The room itself was large and airy and so so quiet. The large pool is situated at the rear of the hotel cut into the beginning of a pine forest, All you can hear is the sounds of nature while sunbathing, reading, and sipping on one of the many fine wines Roberto can recommend to you. Roberto and Isabella go out of their way to make your stay as welcoming as possible while bringing up their family and living their own lives.
The continental breakfast was always welcomed with a different freshly baked cake to go with our coffee and toast. Roberto cooks a three course dinner which never disappoints, it was made with love, fresh ingredients and always tasty, but there are many fine restaurants in the surrounding area for a nice lunch or a change of dinner venue. All in all our stay was exactly what we were looking for, relaxing, good food, good wine and not an English / Irish Pub in sight.
Just a side note when we arrived in Biar late in the evening and became horribly lost, on the point of a breakdown (car and us), We were approached by a local man who could see we were in distress, asked us if we were lost, and proceeded to tell us to follow him. He jumped in his car and three minutes later we were at the doors to the hotel. Good people do still exist.
