Guadalest, Alicante, Spain

Perched dramatically on a rocky outcrop and with winding cobbled streets, an atmospheric castle and sweeping views over the reservoir below, Guadalest is undeniably picturesque. But in August it is also over-run with tourists turning the heart of the village into a gaudy honeypot. Moreover, parking can be a problem, even at 7pm in the evening.
