Xabia is a small coastal town on the western coast of Spain in the province of Alicante. The town sits behind a wide bay in the far east of Spain and is protected at both ends by high headlands making this a picturesque place to visit. Behind it rises the massif of Montgó, giving it a particularly sheltered location that makes it a sought after destination year round. The area enjoys more hours of sunshine than anywhere else in Spain and has therefore been named as one of the healthiest places to live in the world. In the Old Town the church of Sant Bartomeu dates back to the late 14th century and is well worth a visit. Xabia apartments can be rented for cheap from local owners and offer visitors the comforts of home while on holiday abroad.
