The green, peaceful and un-spoilt valley of Ayora is situated inland between the towns of Almansa and Requena. The town of Ayora is about a 1 hour drive to both Alicante and Valencia airports, most of which are dual carriageways. There is a daily bus service to both Alicante and Valencia plus nearby train services to Alicante, Valencia and Madrid. The historical town of Almansa is situated 10 minutes' drive from Ayora and lies in the far eastern corner of Castilla La Mancha, less than an hour's drive north of Alicante, or southwest of Valencia. It shares many attributes of the Ayora Valley though it is a large, modern town with a population of around 25,000 and is situated at approximately 650m above sea level.
