The Granadella beach is waiting for you

 

 

Imagine a bay between two rocky cliffs, a white pebble beach, crystal clear blue water, the sun, the sounds of the waves...

 

When you go to the Granadella beach you feel like you're in paradise. A paradise in Javea and a place you simply must visit.

 

Don't dream any longer... Granadella beach is waiting for you.

 

Saludos, Manon

Spain is slowly starting to reopen, in Phase 1 even restaurants, bars and tourist accommodations may be partially open again, although still under strict conditions and initially you're only allowed to travel within the province. If all goes well, by the end of June everything should be back to normal, at least within Spain.

In the meantime we are of course not sitting still and we are working hard on protocols and adjustments so that your holiday in an apartment or holiday home with us in Javea can take place as safely as possible.

For example facilitating options to arrange online as much as possible before checking in on your day of arrival, safely handing over keys after they have been disinfected and adapted protocols for cleaning and preparing your holiday accommodation or second home.

Preparing a photoshoot in January

Photoshoot with MMC Property Services in Javea
Photoshoot with MMC Property Services in Javea

This morning we went with our professional photographer to two of our homes to take pictures. Mainly these photo shoots are for advertisement purposes, second home owners that rent out their property, properties where we take care of the rental or owners who have a property for sale.

Although the best time of the year is said to be in spring, this is not always possible due the fact that holiday homes home may be occupied by then on a regular base, plus owners need the photos right away for their advertisements.

This picture was taken preparing the photo shoot this morning in La Casita. As you can see, January in Javea isn't too bad either ;)

 

Also looking for a photo shoot of your (second) home? Don't hesitate contacting us!

 

Saludos, Manon

Ps. The result of the photo shoot of this holiday home in Javea you can find soon here!
