Hi, we want to rent in January and February, either in Els Poblets, Denia or Javea.  What is Els Poblets like in the Winter please, as we are concerned it might be a bit too quiet?  We live in the quiet countryside in Suffolk, UK, and want a contrast when in Spain.  Denia and Javea seem to be a bit busier, but there are more appealing rental  houses with gardens in Els Poblets.  

We are 59 and 61 and will be bringing our dog with us.  Current interests: we're both learning to play bridge, and to play the ukulele and melodeon, also trying to learn Spanish.  Also like walking, swimming, cycling and going to the gym.  I've had one knee replacement and am waiting for the other to be done, so the walking and cycling are a bit restricted at the moment.  I love needlecrafts and textile art, but will only be able to bring a limited amount of supplies with me.  My husband loves sailing, but won't be bringing the boat!!

All the areas you mention are quieter in winter, for obvious reasons! The populations of Denia and Javea double or treble in July and August.

Having said that, there's still plenty going on and you can get out and about if the weather's kind. Think about joining Oliva or Denia U3A, its not expensive. Check out Cinema Jayan in Javea, a smashing cinema with the latest releases in English in the beautiful port area. There are hundreds of restaurants to try. I'm sure others will have more tips.

Thank you Jack, I was wondering about U3A and you've answered that question.  Kind regards, Sue

Thanks, no interest in walking football, but will check out the Oliva U3A.  Thanks again.  What's the general vibe in Els Poblets?  Are most of the bars, shops and restaurants still open?  Are there still plenty of people around or does it become a ghost town in the winter?
