The Mont Sant Hosteria is a small hotel in Xativa in the "Land of Valencia."

Supposedly, following the death of El Cid, Xativa was conquered by the Almoravids & Almohades; these same Arab governors beautifed Xativa by adding a castle above the town, and then King Jaime II built a Cistercian monastery, the Monastery of Santa Maria Magdalena de la Algema on the Holy Mount or MONTSANT of Xativa.

This is the location of
The La Hosteria, on the road up to the Castle and is bordered by defensive walls.

The setting is extraordinary...remains of Arab walls, a Cistern, a canal, a lookout point, 15,000 square metres of gardens, and an ancient Bernardos Monastery! The town of Xativa is pronounced CATIVA.

Seven rooms are available, all on upper elevations to see views of the town and the Castle.
All rooms are fully equipped & immaculate. A swimming pool is in one of the gardens; there is a gymnasium with sauna and jacuzzi. They were building ten wood cabins in the upper garden area. [Which are, no doubt, completed by now.]

Our room had a private deck which looked out over the spectacular vistas.

There is also a wonderful restaurant and breakfast room (breakfast included).


Unique Qualities: Location, Location, Location!

This hotel has it all. . .Arab castle above and red-roofed city below, mountains and Mediterranean beyond, gardens with orange trees and 700 newly planted palm trees.

The mountain streams are chanelled into a 250,000-litre cistern under the garden. We enjoyed the balconies, terraces, and quiet corners that the advertisement offered.
