Gandia is a well preserved secret that is ideal for holiday makers searching for a place on the Spanish coast that will deliver a holiday (or long term place to live) that provides a taste of 'real' Spain. Gandia old town, thankfully, has its own economy and benefits from being set back from the coast. This means that any tourists (the vast majority of whom are inland Spanish) tend to stay around the beach area - as opposed to invading the town itself.
Around Gandia are small villages that are surrounded by orange groves. These villages have tightly knit nuclear communities and a way of life that seems not to have changed for centuries. Agriculture is still important with the fabulous aroma of the orange trees blossoming in May a treat for everyone. Meanwhile, the all-inclusive, colourful and charming annual village fiestas would be recognised with pleasure by Saint Francis Borja himself.
