About the Property
Estate, 9 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, set up for 16 people but up to 20 with extra beds.
The finca is set up to accommodate groups from two to sixteen people in Casa Andrago, a superb five bedroom house sleeping eight, and in three charming Casitas, each sleeping either two or four. But, with the provision of extra beds/cribs, the finca can accommodate up to 20 people. All the finca’s accommodation is arranged around an attractive stone paved courtyard and walled sculpture garden. Casa Andrago is made up of an interconnected Guest House and Tower, each sleeping four, which can be rented separately.
La Asmoladora's Casa and Casitas are all self contained with their own superbly equipped bathrooms and kitchens or kitchenettes. They are all decorated and furnished with fascinating items from the owners art and ancient farm implement collections. They are all available for rent individually or in combination. This allows very flexible accommodation for couples, families or larger groups.
All guests have equal access to the very large pool, barbecue area and tennis court but, as the property is extremely large, over 16 acres - different groups can share the finca and easily maintain their privacy. The finca is an excellent base for combining sea, beach and sporting activities with driving, riding (horses or mountain bikes), walking, biking, climbing or just roaming the surrounding mountains.
The beautiful stone paved courtyard, walled sculpture garden and enormous pool/barbeque terrace are ideal for outdoors eating and drinking. Many groups have used held cocktail parties in courtyard and garden and parties, dinner and dancing well into the night on the pool/barbeque terrace. The nearest neighbours are over 250 yards away so music played well into the night is no problem.
The valleys lined with fruit and almond trees - an endless sea of pink/white blossom in spring - and the unspoiled mountain pueblos are a delight to explore. The produce of the local wineries is well worth sampling - the tiny winery in Parcent supplies the Spanish Royal family. After a quiet glass of wine and a few almonds from the estate while watching the sun set dramatically behind Parcent, there are memorable restaurants of all types to try in the area. The historic cities of Valencia and Alicante are just 75 minutes away. A car is essential.
La Asmoladora is family oriented during the summer months. It is an idyllic, romantic places for couples and small groups the rest of the year. Surrounded by mountains of three sides, it is also an ideal place for all mountain based activities providing excellent accommodation for climbers, walkers and cyclists during the autumn/fall, winter and spring. It is also an excellent base for searching for property in the Jalon valley and the nearby coastal resorts.
La Asmoladora has a broadband WiFi internet system available free of charge to all guests.
Fans are provided in all rooms during the summer months. Air conditioning is avialable in all bedrooms and sleeping area at extra cost.
Extra beds and cots can be provided on request.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Derek and his fiancee, Penny de B Cookson, are British. Derek lived internationally for many years in the UK, Hong Kong, the USA and Canada - during which time he also became a Canadian citizen. For ten years he was Chairman of a company involved in agriculture in Spain - so is familar with all parts of Spain. Penny is a linguist. She speaks Spanish and French as well as Portuguese, German and Japanese. She taught languages until she retired as an Oxford Fellow and college administrator a couple of years ago. Both are interested in Opera, Ballet and Theatre and in international travel. Penny is also interested in archaeology particularly of the Roman period. They love Spain and its fascinating history and make it their main home. They also have small homes in Oxford and the Peak National Park in the UK and an apartment on Lake Como in Italy. They run Finca La Asmoladora together as a hobby - life style business. Derek Cornthwaite purchased this chateau / country house in 1999
Why the Owner Chose Parcent, Alicante, Spain:
About 17 years ago, Derek and his late wife, Pam, searched for a large old finca estate to use as their Spanish home for part of the year. They found Finca La Asmoladora at the mountain end of the beautiful Jalon valley. It was Valentine’s Day and all its hundreds of almond trees were covered in incredible pink and white blossom - the finca looked idyllic. They fell in love with its charm, its history which dates back to Roman times, its terraces of almonds, oranges, vines and olives, its spectacular location with mountains on three sides and its perfect peace and tranquility They recognised that the finca, which had been neglected for a number of years, could be gradually converted into the spectacular and lovely country estate for themselves and their guests that it is today. Sadly Pam died some time ago. But their project of careful and sympathetic restoration and improvement which started that February day long ago, continues today as an active and ongoing project of love for Derek and Penny.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The finca is an excellent and unique base for groups large and small to combine sea, beach and sporting activities with riding (horses or mountain bikes), walking, biking, climbing, driving or just roaming the surrounding mountains. The finca has its own excellent hard surface tennis court, basketball and outdoor table tennis facilities - racquets/bats/balls all provided. There are also rentable mountain bikes. The valleys lined with fruit and almond trees - an endless sea of pink/ white blossom in spring - and the unspoiled mountain pueblos are a delight to explore. There are two safari parks a short drive from the finca and 45 mins away, a wide variety of theme parks in Benidorm. The family resorts of Javea and Denia - 30 mins away - both have a wide variety of beaches, coves and caves to explore and fascinating historic centers.
