THE ENVIRONMENT

Dénia is a Spanish municipality, fishing town and seaside resort on the Costa Blanca. Denia is located in the northern coastal part of the province of Alicante. Its geographical setting is notable for a hilly coastline. Its cliffs, coves and wide beaches of fine sand are innumerable. Inland, fruit trees dominate the landscape. The area is favored by pro teams for good reason because the area is breathtakingly beautiful.

During the trip you will stay at the Denia, Marriott La Sella Golf & Bike Resort. The hotel is truly fully equipped and that is to be expected from this 4-star plus location. In addition to a good gym, pool and very nice spa, the hotel also has a specially equipped bike department. Bikes can be safely stored, repair and cleaning resources available.
