Denia is one of the most beautiful resort towns of the Spanish Mediterranean coast. It lies on the northern edge of the Costa Blanca, about 100 km south of Valencia and 95 km north of Alicante.
For sun lovers and water sports enthusiasts alike, it offers a wide variety of attractions: clear turquoise-coloured water, endless sandy beaches, amazing rock formations, hidden coves, impressive cliffs and 320 sunny days a year.
Situated in the foothills of the “Montgó Massif”, which towers up 750 metres above sea level, Denia (population 27,000) has inherited a wealth of archeological and historic treasures from the Iberians, Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Moors and Christians who have lived, fought, loved and died here over the last 5000 years.
Denia consists of a harbour quarter, Baix la Mar, an historical centre, Les Roques, the new part and the beach. Wandering through the narrow streets of the well-preserved old town you can feel the typcical Mediterranean atmosphere as you pass whitewashed façades, countless enticing bars and taverns, each with their beautifully-decorated arched doorways and cast-iron bars on the windows.
Stop for a moment to watch the sun disappearing behind the “Castillo”, – a Moorish medieval fortress which dominates the skyline and has watched over the town and its inhabitants for as long as anyone can remember. What a tale those roughly-carved stones could tell…
The school is situated in the centre of the town, very near the bus station, shops cafes and bars. It’s a ten minute walk to the port and only 20 minutes to the beach. We have a number of well-equipped, modern, fully heated and air-conditioned classrooms each containing a T.V. DVD/CD player etc.
Students also have full usage of the Multimedia room with 15 computers and free access to the Internet and interactive learning programmes. This department is in an adjacent building 2 minutes from the main school
