View on Sella. The little white square on top, with the three windows is the Tower room, where we´ll be staying. Hard to reach by car!
The one and a half hour flight from Geneve went flawless. Easy Jet is definitely budget, but during the four flights on this trip, the attendants were all friendly, service was good, the sandwiches were fine and seating was not that bad. Arriving at Alicante Airport we had to look for the car rental where I was supposed to pick up our car. I had arranged my reservation by internet and didn´t expect the long cue. About ten people apparently had thought about the same line and were waiting for their turn already. We were anxious to get on our way to Sella, come on! Hurry! They made well up for the wait.
Instead of the three doors I expected, the rental company gave us a much bigger four doors Dacia.
Drive carefully!
What the hack kind of car is that? We´d soon found it was comfortable, reliable and of nice color blue. Full tank supplied, airconditioning on, we were ready to go. The road to Sella from Alicante is an easy one. Just the A7 (toll booth), get exit at VillaJoyosa and follow the signs. Benny and Harco, the owners of Villa Pico were expecting us to call as soon as we left the highway. Villa Pico is situated at the upmost top of the mountain and it´s a very difficult drive if you´re not familiar with the narrow streets, the u-turns and the steep alleys of Sella. So, they arrange a pick up from the parking lot for their guests. On our way we decided we wouldn´t call them. We´d take our own suitcase up, walking from the carpark, down at the beginning of the village. Now this was a serious lack of insight on the infrastructure of Sella! It was already hot, we were suffering from lack of sleep and we´d forgotten all about the stairs. Sure, the wheels were working great inside the airports, but Sella roads are not that smooth and the stairs are abundant. And long ... and big steps .... and why are these suitcases so heavy ... and it´s hot! Are we there yet? Wheezing and sweating we arrived at Carrer Cirineo. Harco opened the door as soon as he heard us arrive. One big hug, excuses for being so smelly and then we both felt it: we are home!
