About SALLY HARRIS
We live and work in South Devon, UK. We live in a tiny rural village with our two children and many animals including donkeys, chickens and ducks. We had hoped to buy a second home for many years, and made several unsuccessful house-hunting trips to Spain. We live in a beautiful thatched farmhouse that we love and we wanted to find a special property that we could make a true second home in the sun. We tried to avoid a new unit on a pueblo style urbanisation at all costs! Since 2006 we have had great fun and satisfaction improving the house and garden to create our ideal holiday home.
Since we first bought the property we have made substantal improvements to the villa, including extra bedrooms, new bathrooms and kitchen. We also added pool heating, air conditioning and many other home comforts. We have tried to make it our real second home.
As our work at home is very seasonal, we usually stay in the villa in Autumn and Spring, the wonderful climate means that we are able to really enjoy the outdoor life whenever we are there.
SALLY HARRIS purchased this villa in 2006
Why SALLY HARRIS chose Moraira
We stayed with friends in Moraira, loved it so much, that 2 months later we had bought Villa La Marina. Moraira had everything we were looking for that was lacking in other Spanish Costas. This beautiful working fishing village has a friendly village atmosphere, wonderful scenery, no high rise building and plenty of local character. Our villa, with great sea and mountain views is a very short stroll to the beaches, shops, and restaurants. We rarely use the car there. We are very happy to see our children enjoying the freedom of this charming village – a friendly and safe place. Only 2 hours from the UK. A great location to explore SE Spain – About an hour to stylish Valencia or Alicante, 30 Minutes to Benidorm with theme parks, shopping, golf courses, or up into the hills to see rural Spain too.
What makes this villa unique
Villa La Marina boasts fabulous panoramic sea and mountain views that many guests comment on and remember. The villa and garden, designed with a great deal of thought and enthusiasm – we are a family of keen gardeners and artists, enjoying refurbishing this traditional villa. The heated pool, terraces - with both sun and shade, table tennis, with a new barbecue and many outdoor dining spaces mean that guests often spend most of their stay at the villa. It has been furnished in eclectic style with Moorish furniture and decorations that you see only in the Mediterranean. It is very private and safe villa in a totally walled garden with electric gates at the end of a cul-de-sac.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a really good holiday at La Marina - the weather could not have been any better and we both have a super tan. We loved the villa and felt very at home there. We have stayed in many villas but none have had the atmosphere of calm, peace and tranquillity that greets you as soon as you step through the gate (except for the panic when it would not close on the first night - but soon fixed). Likewise with the interior when you go through the handsome front door. I am sure this is due to the old Spanish feel there is as a result of the way you have refurbished it and yet it still provides everything you need for comfortable living. Full marks! Also, loved the garden areas and the specimen plants. We mostly ate out and had some memorable restaurant meals - Sunday lunch at Ca Pepe was amazing and we particularly enjoyed The Olive Tree and La Refuge which is very Spanish.
So much so, we would like to book it again for 2015 if that is OK with you. It looks as though one of the weeks we would have preferred (last week April, first week May) is already booked, so we will have to go for the two weeks 9 - 23 May 2015
