Denia is one of the most beautiful resort towns on the Spanish Mediterranean coast and lies on the northern edge of the Costa Blanca 100 km south of Valencia and 95 km north of Alicante. This is a town with a population of 35.000 that is situated in the foothills of the Montgó mountain, which towers 750 metres above sea level.

For sun lovers and water sport enthusiasts alike, Denia offers a wide variety of attractions: clear turquoise-coloured sea, endless sandy beaches, amazing rock formations, hidden coves and impressive cliffs. In addition, the climate is sunny almost all year round: approximately 320 sunny days per year, a very mild winter (up to 20º C in January) and a pleasantly warm summer (on average 29º C).

Denia has a fascinating history. Iberians, Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Moors and Christians have all left a mark on the character of the people and a wealth of archaeological and historical treasures.

Denia consists of a harbour quarter, "Baix la Mar", an historical centre, "Les Roques", the new part and the beach. The old town is well-preserved and a typical Mediterranean atmosphere is felt through the whitewashed façades, the arched doorways and the cast-iron window bars. In the evening as one wanders down the narrow streets, one encounters the many beautiful squares and the countless bars, cafés and taverns. Towering over the old town, the castle, a Moorish medieval fortress, dominates the skyline. The town prospers from fishing, agriculture, handicraft, trade and of course tourism.

The school is situated in the centre of Denia and only 10 minutes walk from the beach.
