The
Experience

Three doors from the birthplace of the Borgia popes is an exquisitely renovated silk workshop – the coolest B&B in town. Ian and partner Josechu began the renovation in 2006 and the intelligent simplicity of design reflects the serenity of the owners. White walls and uncluttered spaces combine with 18th-century elements and warm rustic textures, there are sloping beams in top-floor bedrooms, WiFi, books, games, stone steps and steep stairs and two outdoor spaces, the smallest at the top with stunning views: gaze on Monte Bernisa and Xativa’s castle and various hilltop chapels beyond. (The sunsets, too, are a glory.) The dining room sits under a large skylight and breakfast’s freshly squeezed juices are delicious: this is orange country. Xativa, older than Valencia, is a cultural reference point for the region, richly endowed with opera, ballet, theatre and heaps of authentic restaurants. Casa Aldomar is a place to gather ones thoughts, a rest stop from travelling, and its ancient door opens to a tiny cobbled street 50 metres from a fountain’d plaza. Such tranquillity is a treat in Spain!

Reviews

Excellent place to stay and Ian was a most informative host, with great restaurant recommendations and also answered all the questions about this fascinating city. Parking not easy but when you get to casa Aldomar it is tranquil especially on either of the two roof terraces.

Local points of interest from Ian Burrell

  • Xàtiva castle, part of which dates back to the Romans, is part of one of the most impressive set of fortifications in the region of Valencia and has superb views.
  • Castle Mount, the site of an ancient Iberian, and then Roman city has two historic churches, archeological excavations, an ice house and two caves that can be visited. One of these, Doves' Cave, has an altar to the Virgin carved into the rock.
  • The Casa de la Ensenyança Fine Arts Museum regularly hosts exhibitions, including loans from El Prado in Madrid and has a fine collection in its own right.
  • The Almodí Museum of History has exhibits tracing the city's development from the Iberians, Romans and Moors to the present day.
  • Xàtiva's basilica hosts a small museum explaining the city's links to the two Spanish Borgia popes and the Borgia family's origins in Xàtiva. The bell tower offers superb views over the city.
  • The "Black Cave" an easy river-side hike of just over an hour from Xàtiva is the site of one of only 13 places known in Iberia to have been used by the Neanderthals.
