Villajoyosa is a beautiful fishing village in Costa Blanca, Alicante. It's famous for its brightly painted houses overlooking the sea, which belonged to fishermen who wanted to be able to see their homes while they were out at sea.

Villajoyosa has managed to keep its original charm despite the popularity of the Costa Blanca. It still has an active fishing port, a well kept old town and three chocolate factories!

During an Estación Inglesa programme we take a guided walk around the village to learn about the history and legends of this beautiful location.

The hotel

The hotel Allon Mediterrània**** is a modern beachfront hotel in the centre of the village. You can enjoy beautiful sea views from every corner of the hotel. It's a fantastic location to enjoy the beach, take a short stroll to the old town or visit the fishing port.

I have attended many, many programmes both as a student and as a tutor. I can say with no hesitation, that from every aspect of learning situations, this has been the best. It was clear that students were enjoying themselves and having fun always helps the learning process. You have an excellent programme.

The course has provided me with a great chance to meet new people, learn about new cultures and provide native Spanish speakers with the resources needed to enhance their English skills. It has been an amazing week and has allowed me to gain a further appreciation for the professional and social need that many Spanish speakers have for English. Javi, Rafa and Estación Inglesa- Great job!
