This Palacio is superb and allows you to live in a genuinely historic property. Almost certainly there was a building here during the Roman era, as during the restoration of the building various Roman artifacts were found. However, the existing building certainly dates back to the 9th century, when it was first in the hands of the Christians – before being seized by the Arabs during the Arab invasion of Spain (AD 711). For a while, during the ‘Taïfa kingdoms’, the owner was a noble Arab warrior named Rufart.
So, there is plenty of history here!
In fact, it is remarkably difficult to find historic properties on coastal Spain that are not complete ruins – so Palacio Antiqua Magnifica is exceptional in being not only a restored property but one that is already habitable. It is certainly very grand and stands on the edge of a charming village. This provides the house with a dominating position with fabulous views across the surrounding valley and mountains. These will delight you with their circling falcons and eagles. A wonderful sight.
Of course, one of the great charms of the property is its very large gardens – which are completely private and bounded on two sides by the house itself with high walls to the other two sides. So, you have a luscious and secluded garden, that is perfect for enjoying to the best the glorious al fresco life of Valencian Spain.

There is also a large salon and, on the second floor, a spacious studio/study. The master bedroom is huge – really the ultimate in spacious and grand bedrooms. It has an en-suite to match. A further bedroom has an en-suite.
The house is replete with character and traditional woodwork, stonework and other historic elements dating back many years.
