DETACHED LUXURY VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL AND WONDERFUL MOUNTAIN VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Orba - Casa Jean Mary

2 Bedrooms (1 double/1 twin), 1 bathroom, private pool, Air Con - sleeps 4

Our private, well maintained, traditional style villa has its own secluded 8x4m pool and terraces which are exclusively for your use.

The villa sits on a landscaped 900 m² plot overlooking orange groves and mountains. It has a single level living area of 120 m², comprising a main living room (SKY TV and 300 DVDs), separate dining area (seats 6) which connects to a well equipped kitchen. A large glazed and a smaller open naya overlook the pool, terrace and mountain scenery creating a very light and sunny room equipped with a sofa, wicker dining furniture and an indoor BBQ. Both bedrooms are well proportioned and access a single bathroom. Modern AC/Heating in lounge and bedrooms.

Outside, the pool and terraced areas are fully equipped with loungers, parasols and patio furniture and provide the perfect area for all day sunbathing. More patio furniture is available at the rear of the villa where you can sit quietly in the shade beneath our beautiful pergola, ideal for al-fresco dining and BBQs!

Orba Village: The valley of Orba, from which the village takes its name, has a mild climate, excellent water and is surrounded by orange groves, lemon trees, almonds and of course, olives. The village sits at the head of the valley surrounded by mountains with the Mediterranean sea at the valley foot. The village has all the facilities you are likely to need, 24 h cash points, 24/7 access to a medical centre, large supermarket, bars and restaurants.

An excellent choice of restaurants can be found in Orba and the surrounding villages, with the nearest bar/restaurant being a short stroll from the villa.

Orba has a small weekly market on Wednesday.

Places to Visit: The Costa Blanca is renowned for its white sandy blue flag beaches and several can be reached from the villa within 20 - 45 min drive. Denia is only a short drive away with its lovely old town, castle, harbour, fishing fleet and lots of super shops, not to mention miles of sand and pebble beaches. Boat trips along the coast are available as are ferries to the Balearic Islands. Javea has a famous stretch of beach called the Arenal lined with cafés, restaurants and shops and golden sands. Sandy beaches stretch from Oliva to Gandia and are very quiet and uncommercialised. Another landmark on the coast is the Penon d'Ifach rock which sticks out into the sea at Calpe.

A 50 min drive away are the famous theme parks of Benidorm, including Terra Mitica, Terra Natura, and Aqualandia Water Park and Wild Life Park.

Historic Guadalest and the famous water pools and waterfalls are just 40 min away.

If you are into caves, superb examples exist nearby at Benidoleig and Val De Ebo (Cova Del Rull)

Activities: Golf: There are several Golf Courses in the area most within 15 to 50 minutes drive. Benissa 9 hole course 15 min drive. Denia 18 hole course 25 mins drive. Altea 18 hole course 30 mins drive. Oliva Nova 18 hole course 50 min drive.

Walking/Climbing: Overlooking Denia and Javea is El Montgo mountain which becomes a familiar landmark during your stay and it is possible to walk to the top if you are feeling energetic. There is also the famous mountain spring and walks on the Sierra Bernia 20 min away. The area is very mountainous and offers both easy and very challenging walking/climbing experiences.

Cycling: The area offers road cyclists and mountain bikers a breathtaking mix of peaceful inland countryside and invigorating coastal routes, suitable for anyone, from the die-hard cycling junkie to the normally car-bound.

Paragliding: A 5* paragliding school in Parcent village and paragliding from the mountain (Coll de Rates), only a 10 minute drive from the villa.

PERFECT PLACE UNDER THE SUN!

  • 5 out of 5
The house is perfect, set in a lovely place with great views. The pool is large and in the sun the whole day, perfect for both children and grown ups!
The area is quiet and peaceful, the small city of Orba has everything you need, including a big masymas supermarket.
We were also pleasantly surprised when we saw the 'welcome package' with some basic items including a cold beer and lemonade! very thoughtful.
We would recommend the villa to everyone as it has everything you need to have a relaxing warm summer holiday.

HEAVEN IN THE SUN

  • 5 out of 5
We have had quite a few villa holidays but none in such peaceful surroundings and the view over the orange groves is stunning. The villa itself provides all you could ask for including all day sun or shade, your choice. Quite a steep walk back from town but manageable in 10-15 mins. for two fifty somethings.

A fantastic villa with everything you could need for a great holiday. Spotlessly clean and very well maintained.

PERFECT !

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived at Colin and Kathy's villa to met up with my brother and sister in law to enjo a break together as they also live abroad.

We had a great time and enjoyed the villa and it's facilities to the full.

We honestly had no complaint with the villa and found it very clean, well maintained and well equipped.

Would definitely recommend the villa to family and friends

In short we found our break at the villa absolutely spot on for us and enjoyed it so much that we have booked to return for a further week in September with my daughter and boyfriend.

Thanks to Colin and Kathy for a perfect relaxing holiday.

Trev & Julie.

A HOME FROM HOME (BUT WITH SUNSHINE)

  • 5 out of 5
Some villas we have rented , to use a phrase "have ticked some of the boxes". This one ticks them all. Right from the inital enquiry everything has been done with no trouble at all. The info packs we received were very useful as they not only gave you an insight into the villa but also the surrounding area.

Colin and Kathy seem to have thought of everything when it came to kitting out the villa , there was everything we needed and quite a bit more. The sunbed towels are a good idea and the welcome pack was a nice gesture.

On arrival , after meeting Gwen and Dave (very helpful), we found the villa to be very clean and tidy. The keys are all marked which makes locking and unlocking easy especially as there are a number of ways to enter the villa. In the drawers we found a number of leaflets for attractions in the surrounding area and a notepad where previous families had made notes recommending trips or restaurants.

The villa is spacious inside and this made it feel like a home rather than a holiday villa. This coupled with the rear and front terraces and the naya gave you lots of places to sit, relax and eat. It was nice to be able to vary where you had meals , there is even a dining room although we ate all our meals outside.Each area had its own furniture so there was no lugging your table and chairs from one place to another.

The pool is in sunlight from when the sun comes up until sunset and we used it from early morning until dusk. It was clean and spacious. The sun terrace by the pool also gets the sun all day and again this was used a lot. The area is quiet and the villa is not overlooked which means you can relax and just chill out.

We had one problem during our stay and this was dealt with efficiently and promptly .

All in all Casa Jean Mary is the best holiday villa we have stayed at . I have no qualms about recommending this villa to anyone who is looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday.

10 DAYS OF PEACE & TRANQUILITY

10 days of peace & tranquility
  • 5 out of 5
We arrived April 2012 to be welcomed by Gwen who had placed some basic food in the fridge for our arrival and explained where everything was. The villa was clean and tidy, but also homely and lived in with various items in cupboards throughout the villa.

Everything that you could possibly need was provided in the villa and this has been well thought out. We had a choice or areas to sit and eat outside during different times of the day and each were uniquely wonderful.

Our main concern doing this for the first time was the 'trust' factor, especially when we had to hand over our money to an individual rather than a company. There was absolutely no need to worry as Colin is very helpful and supportive and was even prepared to stay in contact with us during our stay. Our security deposit was returned without delay.

Colin is more than amenable because we were initially undecided whether to book the villa or not because of no Wifi. However, he pushed through its installation for our stay.

The villa Itself:
The views from the villa are both breathtaking and stunning, so much so we did not travel around as much as we thought we would but stayed around the pool chilling, enjoying the vista. On these occasions we were very surprised that the only things we could hear was the bristle of the palm trees brushing against each other and the birds singing.

Every room was a decent size and very comfortable. The only downside, the sofas weren't very comfortable, however, as most of the living is done outside this did not prove to be much of an issue for us.

Colin has well thought out people's needs and wants and set up the villa in a way to chill and relax and this was evident with a vast collection of films, books and games that he has placed for the hirer's use to enjoy.

The area:
We found it a great location with very easy access to supermarkets and beaches. We particularly loved the coast road into Denia which we spent a few days at. We also got to visit Javea and Moraira, both of which are beautiful. We highly recommend the catamaran out on the Med for €20 to watch the sunset with some champagne run by a local boat company at Denia. Orba was a quaint village which is walkable from the villa.

Conclusion
Yes, we would recommend this villa to family and friends and, yes, we would even consider coming back.

Thank you to Colin for all the information and being amenable and to Gwen & Dave for looking after us.

Owner's Response: We are delighted that Geraint and Deb chose to stay at our villa to celebrate Geraint's special birthday. We try to make sure that our guests feel at home in our villa and are pleased to receive such positive feedback in this respect. Not only is the villa very well equipped and comfortable but it occupies a superb locatation with breathtaking views across orange groves to the mountains. So much so that our guests often say that they are happy just to stay at the villa and don't feel the need to spend much time touring around! Our keyholders, Dave and Gwen are frequently praised by our guests for the support and help they provide. It's very important to us that our guests feel able to make easy contact with either myself or our keyholders should they need anything. Colin and Kathy

Our villa, Casa Jean Mary, is just a 10 min walk from the local village of Orba yet occupies a very quiet location offering unrivalled views over the beautiful Orba Valley across extensive orange groves & scenic mountains. Orba is a small, typical Spanish country village with around 1600 inhabitants. The village & area still retains its local Spanish culture with many Fiestas during the year, featuring a wide variety of events such as street dancing, fireworks, bull running and parades. The costal towns & beaches of Javea, Denia, Moraira & Calpe as well as many award winning golf courses are within a 20 to 30 min drive. Benidorm, with it’s many attractions & theme parks is just 40 min away whilst the mountains around Orba are ideal for walking, cycling, paragliding and scenic drives. A large shopping mall with a cinema and classy shops and cafes is a 10 min drive away. Casa Jean Mary is perfect for either a relaxing or more active holiday, any time of the year.

Golf: Club de Golf Oliva Nova

Dist: 12.6 km

Oliva Nova Golf, 18 hole golf course right beside the beach. It is a par 72 links course of 6350 m with a slope of 120 the main characteristic of which is that 15 or the 18 holes has a water obstacle!

http://en.golf.olivanova.com/ver/108/18-holes-by-the-sea.htmlhttp://en.golf.olivanova.com/ver/108/18-holes-by-the-sea.html

Club De Golf La Sella

Ctra. La Xara-Jesús Pobre

Dist: 12 Km

Located on the slopes of a mountain, the course is not particularly tiring. It lies next to Montgó natural park, and is surrounded by Mediterranean woodland and hills. Pine trees, orange trees, olives and almonds add colour to the course. 18 holes and a par of 72. It is varied and thought provoking, and moderate in length.

The design of the courses means it is suitable for players of all levels, with the difficulty apparent at the tees.
