If you live in or have recently visited the Hondon Valley then you will have spotted the “Spaceship” house nestled in the pine forest towards and at the back of the La Montanosa Urb. (See the video below)
Well we recently had exclusive access to take new images and video of the property. ( visit our website to see the results : https://www.hondonvillas.net/property-details.php?pRef=689 ). The house was built around 2015 by a local sailor as an “eco” project and the design and construction has won an award.
Still unfinished it now needs a new owner to complete the interior and landscaping. The house has 3 bedrooms, all with ensuite showers, an indoor and outdoor pool and spectacular 360 views of the Hondon Valley.
The 450 m2 living space is over three floors: ground houses the entrance, garage and storage + the indoor pool … 1st floor is the main living areas such as lounge, dining, kitchen and bedrooms and the top floor is a circular leisure area with large solarium and viewing portal.
Truly amazing but an acquired taste for the right person who wants something unique, quirky, tranquil and offers an abundance of building and design options over it’s 59K m2 plot.
The Hondón Valley is to have a bumper grape harvest despite the reported activities of high numbers of wild rabbits!
Harvest time does seem to vary a lot across the Hondon valley and the Costa Blanca. Near Hondón de las Nieves it seems to be anywhere between September and New Year. The late grapes are used for the New Year Celebrations when the Spanish tradition is to eat “12 grapes and drink cava” to the toll of the midnight bells.
The grape harvest creates about 10,000 temporary jobs across the Costa Blanca and local growers have had a good year, despite a new “plague” of wild rabbits which have threatened the harvest in some areas. The early and heavy spring rains and glorious summer sun has created some fat juicy grapes this year. The farmers are generally happy. Although many acres have been changed to more profitable market garden crops such as spring onions and chillies in recent years.
You will see millions & millions of grapes wrapped in paper bags to protect the grapes until they are picked from September onwards. Last year production in the Hondón region was more than 40,000 tons according to the Spanish newspaper “La Informacion”.
SO EAT MORE GRAPES – They are good for you and the local economy!
Our IT people are telling us that our very own Hondon Villas websites have passed the 1.5 million visitors mark. INCREDIBLE to think we are such a small area and a real estate niche for inland Spain.
To think that when we arrived in Hondon, Spain 13 years ago, there was no information on the web about the Hondón Valley. (even Google hadn’t found it back then LOL!) Yet the area still retains the same Spanish charm and has changed little really. For sellers this is great news as the local economy thrives on property sales and a new influx of buyers looking for that typically tranquil Spanish country lifestyle.
What’s more… that figure does no include the 10,000’s of visitors to our international portals and marketing partners, like A Place in the Sun, Right Move, Kyero, Prime Location and more. WOW again!
So selling through Hondon Villas gets you plenty of exposure, maybe that’s one of the reasons why we sell more houses in the area than any other local agent!

The province of Alicante is already seeing the first pink and white blossom of the almond trees on their farmland. The areas of Torrellano, in Elche, Hondón de las Nieves and Hondón de los Frailes, in the Medio Vinalopó, the districts of Marina Alta and Vega Baja are some of the points of the province in which you can already enjoy a beautiful landscape.
This flowering is earlier than usual in the region. It is common for the first petals and the first almond buds to begin appearing at the beginning of February. The high temperatures registered in recent days in the region, where in some points, such as Elche, have reached between 18 and 20 degrees has been the final push for this week to start to appear the first flowers. However, the farmers are a little worried that some almonds trees may be exposed to possible frosts as the local temperature and inclement weather is forecast to be poorer.
For decades they have grown an abundance of agricultural delights such as Grapes, Almonds and Olives (the main economy).
Hondon is surrounded by an expanse of stunning mountain views and traditional arid Spanish countryside. These excellent vistas are a delight in all seasons! Take a walk or drive through the country roads and you will just marvel at the changing light, shadows and picturesque skies.
The Hondon Valley is well known for its mild climate and pleasant summer breezes, which is very welcoming in those hot summer months when temperatures rarely fall below 30 degrees. The region enjoys sunshine in excess of 310 days per year, where the air is very clean and the pace of life slow. Hondon offers a very peaceful and stress free life.
Come take a look at the Valley of the Vines, drink the local wine under the bluest of skies and feel the warmth of the Spanish sun on your face … and you’re hooked! We were! We love it!

Broadly these can be divided into urban and rustic land. There are important distinctions between urban and rustic land in Spain. You can always construct on urban land and on rustic land there will be some form of restriction that you will need to abide by. There are also regional differences to be aware of and local town halls can apply rules differently. This is one of the reasons why it is so important to access local knowledge from a trained professional.
Urban land (suelo urbano) is usually located in areas that have already been built upon such as cities, towns and villages. It is not necessarily a built-up area, however, and it will be marked out on the Plan General de Ordenación Urbana. This type of land is likely to be connected to mains services already although there may still be some connection requirements to complete. There is a minimum amount of land you must buy when it is classified as urban, and is determined by the town hall. The amount you purchase will determine the size of the house you can build.
You are allowed to build on rustic land (suelo rústico also known as a type of suelo no urbanizable) if you meet certain requirements relating to the proportion of the land to be built on. You are likely to need to buy a substantial plot if you wish to build on it. However, the good news is that you needn’t worry about the price. Rustic land is much cheaper to purchase than urban land. Different town halls will have different expectations and ultimately it is their decision about where you can and cannot build. There are degrees of protection afforded to rustic land. For example, land in or around a national park or flood area. If this applies to the plot of land you have in mind, your solicitor will need to check carefully what the situation is and whether it is wise or not to buy.
Suelo urbanizable is a category of land which is neither urban nor rustic and cannot be built on until there is an urban development plan. It is likely to have all the services already in place and you need only apply for detailed planning permission from the local town hall. If any services are outstanding from the plot then you should check how much it will cost to have them installed. Although the land is within the jurisdiction of the local town hall there are also rules and regulations that apply to it as a result of national and regional legislation. Your solicitor must check these out carefully to make sure you comply.
