Hotel Rural La Venteta

Aigües de Busot (Alicante) España

Its antique and craft fair every first Sunday of the month, and the concerts of music in the open air contribute to relax and take delight in this rural location near to the sea, in which the combination of natural vegetation, water and climate, brings to mind the popular saying "Aigues cures without doctors, here no pharmacy can be found, only its pure air, its waters and the shadow of its pine trees".
Some vestiges that prove the long lasting history of the village are the ruins of a little Arabic style castle located just outside the village as well as the Christian Tower known as “Torre de Aigues” (14th century) on a small hill dominating the village, built in a rectangle with natural stones, and presenting as decorative item metal leftovers mixed and integrated within the cemented joins. Worth seeing: the church built in honour of San Francisco de Asis acts as a priest since 1755 and provides a marvellous altar table from the 17th century painted by Antonio Villanueva.
An extensive pine forest is located in the Cabezo d'Or, with paths of rosemary, thyme and lavender, stone banks and viewpoints, inviting you to rest. In this place you will find the old Source of the Cogolla, with its wide viewpoint opened to a large part of the coast of Alicante; the stables of the Ciscar, and the chapel of Carmen.
Close by you'll discover important constructions, such as the Torreta or Villa Gonzalo, or La Venteta, the old inn recently restored and converted into a Cottage Hotel full of charm. The village has a large artistic tradition, since it was chosen as a place of settlement by artists of reputation like J P Kwinkelenberg.
