Lavinia is a new Naturist resort only 20 minutes inland from Alicante airport, in the South East of Spain. It is set on a terraced hillside with gardens, two swimming pools, and four spacious and well-appointed villas for holiday rental. Accommodating a maximum of 16 guests, it is an ideal location for an escape, and would make a great place for a group to holiday together.
The site is well laid out and there is a feeling of space. One of the swimming pools was right outside the door of our villa and it felt like ours exclusively. There is a sauna with ultra-modern showers. Beach towels, hamman towels and bath robes in harmonious and complementary colours - unique to each villa - are also provided. You’ll also find an honesty bar next to the central terrace and BBQ area. It is definitely a Naturist resort and not clothes-optional with no requirement to wear clothes at any time whilst on site.
It’s the brainchild of Belgians Wim and Ana. They only became Naturists six years ago and in following a long-term dream of running a B&B in Spain, decided that a Naturist place would give them a better chance of success because there was less competition - and definitely a demand. The site was in ruins having had squatters after being repossessed some years previously but they have done an incredible job of refurbishing and improving.
They live in a fifth property on the site and provide well for guests, including some food and drink provisions to purchase, a bookable cooked food service on request, as well as fridge ‘packages’ for new arrivals. Guests often get together for a catered communal meal. Ana makes marmalade and limoncello and will also bake you a loaf of delicious bread, brought to your door straight from the oven!
Finding the property on Google maps might be off-putting but don’t be! Despite the apparent proximity to houses and roads there is tranquility and fantastic views. Guests can also exit Lavinia by the back gate and walk - naked if you wish - for miles and miles in mountainous terrain. Wim and Ana run a regular walking excursion to see the sun rise - spectacular!
They are keen to tell you that it is important for them that guests feel comfortable, they want everyone to feel free to be themselves, do as they wish, and feel happy in their own skin. If you want to join in with any activities you may. If you choose solitude, that is fine too.
If you do venture out, the nearest town Sant Vicente del Raspeig is only 10 minutes drive away. It is a sizeable town with supermarkets, pharmacies and many other shops with parking freely available. Slightly further afield is the coast and all that it offers.
With a beautiful, peaceful and spacious site and welcoming hosts, it would be true to say that Lavinia Naturist Resort is a new Spanish gem for the Naturist community.
