Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Moraira - Casa Leon
Sleeps 6. 20 minute walk to Moraira town. Air conditioning.
Well maintained detached villa located on a sought-after urbanisation in a quiet cul-de-sac. Set within its own walled gardens and sunny terrace, Casa Leon enjoys the benefits of a lovely communal swimming pool with poolside shower, surrounded by mature gardens.
A 10 minute walk will lead you to the beautiful hamlet of El Portet, one of the best little bays on the Costa Blanca, with its panoramic sandy bay and beachside snack/drinks bars. There is a small supermarket, chemist and further restaurants close by. Moraira town is located 1km (approx. 20 minute walk), the route from the villa to town boasts breathtaking views.
Casa Leon comprises one double and two twin bedrooms, lounge, dining area, kitchen and bathroom. Bedrooms benefit from window mosquito blinds and the villa is air conditioned. Please note that one of the twin bedded rooms has an en-suite shower room and is situated independent to the rest of the villa on the ground floor. The room has its own entrance and is not connected internally in anyway, therefore the room is not suitable for younger children sleeping without an adult.
About Moraira: Once a sleepy fishing village, Moraira has grown into a small yet charming and picturesque town and yet due to strict planning laws is still very pretty and not over-developed. The main hub of life is beside the pretty yacht marina offering a good selection of restaurants and bars where you can sit outside and watch the world go by. A charming square still retains much of the original character and atmosphere and is home to the local church. There are restaurants, bars and several interesting shops lining the narrow cobbled streets. In the high season, the town comes alive in the evenings with locals and visitors alike.
There is a Friday morning market which is a must to visit and is very popular for its excellent fruit & veg. Also in Moraira is a children's fun fair, crazy golf and a go-karting track which is about a 10 minute drive out from Moraira and an interesting nightly street market.
The beach: The beautiful hamlet of El Portet is only a 10 minute walk away from the villa. It offers a safe, sandy beach, beachside cafe and beautiful views. There is also parking should you wish to take the car.
A further 10 minutes brings you to the town of Moraira which also has its own popular wide, gently-shelving sandy beach with shallow waters. The walk from El Portet to Moraira is breathtaking taking in stunning, elevated views across El Portet bay, Moraira's pretty marina and across to Calpe's Ifach Rock in the distance.
Both beaches were awarded the prestigious EEC Blue Flags for cleanliness and are safe for family bathing, both are also served by beach bars and restaurants which serve drinks, snacks and main meals. It is also well worth exploring the many other coves and bays along the coast with sand or sand/rock beaches.
The area: Moraira is situated at the end of a long valley. The surrounding pine-clad foothills provide both shelter from the winter weather from the north and a natural vortex for cooling summer sea breezes. Moraira’s perfect orientation provides the majority of its properties with a southerly downhill view towards the sea. The development in the area is mostly detached privately-owned villas with very few holiday apartments and no holiday package hotels whatsoever and therefore accommodation is virtually limited to privately-owned villas. Nearly all the properties are owned by Northern Europeans either as retirement or holiday homes and are spread over quite a substantial area. The well-spaced villa development does mean that a car is a necessity in most areas, although this villa is a 20 minute walk into Moraira town.

Guestbook comments from the manager
“This has been our third visit to Casa Leon over a number of years. We find it so convenient, so near to lovely clean beaches, the nearest within walking distance. The local town has a variety of good restaurants, and supermarkets. The villa is very well equipped, and the surrounding area is so beautifully quiet. We look forward to our next visit……”
