Valencia and Costa Blanca last week October

Jump to last reply

An unexpected treat: we're going to spend a week in Spain at the end of October.
We'll start in Valencia where we'd like to spend about two days (more if you convince us to do so). We will then slowly drive South towards Jávea, where we will spend four days before returning to Valencia for our flight home.

Request: tips on places to stay in Valencia. Any suggestions for restaurants and places to see are most welcome. You Fodorites have yet to disappoint me :)

We are debating whether to travel to Jávea (costa Blanca) via the coastal route or via the inland route. Are places like Xativa and Alcoy worth the detour? I see lots of green routes on the map. We usually prefer to travel away from the beaten path.

Any advice on what we can expect weather wise in that time of year? Can we e.g. expect snow on the higher hill tops at the beginning of November? We would like to know in view of the route to take as well as what type of car we should rent. Thanks as always, for your help!
