RURAL HOUSE - MASÍA SAN JOAQUIN This traditional masía (farm house) was acquired and reconstructed at the beginning of the eighteenth century by Martín Melchor Calabuig Calabuig, notary from the neighboring population of Bocairent and great-grandfather of the present proprietor Asunción Calabuig Lopez. The Masía was used as a farm house and summer home of the Calabuig family and has been handed down in the family throughout five generations until nowadays becoming a rural house after a process of renovation and adjustment of its facilities. The masía is composed of two totally independent rural houses: San Joaquin I and San Joaquin II which can be connected by a double door to accommodate larger groups.

There is also the possibility of harvesting fruit depending on the season (mushrooms, asparagus, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, cherries, pears, figs, pine nuts, blackberries, and kakis). Additionally, there are typical products of the area such as the coffee liquour and the herb liquor of Mariola, as well as home-grown organic fruits and: beans, tomatos, peppers, cucumbers, artichokes, pumpkins, melons, watermelons, and corn. A wide variety of activities are available to visitors: Horseback riding, trekking, cycling, hang-gliding and hot air ballooning for the thrill seekers. The masía is nestled in a valley, near the populations of Bocairent (8 km.) and Agres (1 km.) where it is possible to enjoy the tranquillity of the splendid landscapes (the views from the entrance of Bocairent by night and from the ice caves in Agres are highly recommended). In Bocairent we can visit its medieval district with sixteen fountains, its bullring carved into the rock, churches, museums and the ‘Covetes dels Moors’. In Agres we can visit the Sanctuary of the Mare de Déu d'Agres built next to the remains of a medieval castle, stroll along the streets and drink from fresh and crystalline water fountains and cross the Mariola mountain range famous for its medicinal herbs and their ice caves or neveros. In addition to the monumental importance of these towns, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the gastronomy of the area (gazpacho of Mariola, , spanish meat balls, fried corn, stews, cream of Agres, sausages, almond pastries, as well as other regional specialties like ‘pericana’, ‘borreta’, and ‘bajoques farsides’) and finish with a liquour, the popular ‘herbero’, made from crushed dry anise with herbs of Mariola.
