Why a New Venue?
As much as I love my current location and home, I felt that I needed somewhere larger for the business and with the ability to make all the bedrooms en-suite to make our guests stay with us much more enjoyable.
So, I started the search and two year's down the line and after seriously considering 6 potential new places I came across Finca Bonavista. It was then time, with the help of my architect, to prepare paperwork for my Casa Rural Tourist Licence and the Planning Application. After more than a year of waiting and a visit to the Mayor, on 10 December 2020, the Town Hall finally gave me the Construction Licence to start work.
Of course, then came Christmas and the 3 Kings Fiesta but on 25 January.
As well as Biking Abroads all inclusive holidays, I will be able to cater for those of you who want to ride your own bikes over and go touring in the area, on a B&B basis. A dinner option will also be available but there are also numerous fantastic restaurants to choose from in Ontinyent, should you want to make your own arrangements.

Finca Bonavista has ample garage space for me to keep the bikes here at the house rather than at a storage unit, as before, and also has the extra room for our tourers to keep their bikes in a secure undercover space too. For my guests added comfort there will be a large changing area and toilet/wash facilities.
There is a great Games Room, with a Pool Table, Dart Board, Air Hockey and Table Tennis
And now my new BAR and tap room!
if you want to watch TV (UK) or a good film, there is a large TV lounge with comfy seating and a large screen and fab sound system.
Of course, it is in Spain, so there is a pool for use between May and October, unless you are very brave, as it is only heated by the sun. Along with, plenty of areas to just relax and enjoy the surroundings and a lovely terrace for al fresco dining and refreshments.
