Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Cullera

Great Facilities inc Pool, Play Area, Tennis, Restaurant and Bar.

This is a great family friendly resort. The building is situated on the beach. Within the complex is a Pool and Kiddies Pool, Restaurant and Bar, Tennis and Kids Play area. Opposite is a small supermarket and 3 minutes walk away is a big supermarket. The apartment sleeps 5 comfortably, a double room with en suite shower room and toilet, also a kids room with bunk and single bed. In addition, there is a family bathroom, large lounge, large terrace and kitchen. The apartment has been totally refurbished in the last 2 years including air conditioning plus TV (31ch, 4 or 5 English Language also kids ch) and DVD. This year we have also installed Wi Fi which is included in your rental price. This is principally a Spanish resort and so fellow guests are not likely to be British. There are a large selection of restaurants and bars and within the scenic old town you can find markets and the fishing port. A visit to the castle that overlooks the bay is a must and kids enjoy the excursion on the train. You can also visit Valencia City and the Aqua Park in Cullera is great.

Golf: The famous El Saler golf course is 20mins drive away. It is possible to book and play. The course is tough and picturesque. The Spanish Open has been held here in the past. If you are prepared to travel further there are courses at El Bosque (1/2 Hour) West of Valencia, Escorpion (45 mins) NW Valencia, and Gandia.

Sailing/Windsurfing.: On the next beach round from Playa Raco there is a large Sailing and Windsurfing Centre where it is possible to book lessons. On Raco Beach at the far end there is also a school but only for windsurfing. This is a good place to learn as the bay is shallow and not steep to deepen.

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 out of 5
This was a great property and an excellent place to stay with small children. The owner was very helpful and answered all my questions promptly. The property was clean and well maintained. It is on the 11th floor and has an incredible view of the beach. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and the 1 bedroom could sleep 3 children easily.
When I was planning this vacation, I was looking for a location that would provide absolute relaxation and this place fit that requirement 100%. It was an easy 30 minute taxi ride from Valencia airport (80euro going/55euro coming back). When we arrived, Theresa met us and took us to our apartment and she showed us how to turn everything on and got us settled. Then it was off to the pool and the beach. It is a beautiful pool with a lifeguard and a kiddie section. There were plenty of chairs around the pool. There is also a bar with snacks right next to the pool. The beach was just a few steps outside the pool gate. I just loved this beach. The water was clear and calm and perfect for small children to play. The beach was clean and not too crowded.
For dinner each night we went out to the promanade. There are several restaurants - nothing fancy but easy, out-door places to enjoy sangria and paella while the kids play on the beach. There is even a play area with rides on the promanade about 1K from the apartment gate. There is a kitchen in the apartment and a small market next to the apt. if you want to cook yourselves.
The apt does have a/c but the unit is located in the living room. It is sufficient for the apt but a few fans for the bedrooms would have been nice. It also would have been nice to have a few extra towels.
We did go into the city of Valencia one day. We have been there before so it wasn't a huge priority for us. It is easy to get the bus and then the train but it took us about 1.5 hours to get there that way and it cost about 30 euro for a family of 4. But it is a wonderful city and I highly recommend the aquarium.
We did not rent a car because we knew we just wanted to spend the week on the beach. But it would be a good idea if you want to travel around a bit. However, street parking looked like it could be a problem at the apt. so I would consult with the owner before renting a car.
Overall, we had an incredible vacation and I would highly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: I think that is a fair point about the towels we will review this with the cleaner in August.

If you want to park outside the appartment in high season it can be a problem. However, you can enter the complex through the electronic gates for unloading and there is ample parking just 2 mins away.

We will update our welcome letter with details of parking above.

Great place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I took a 30 day winter holiday here, and had a great time in this very adequate apartment. The kitchen's very good with a good hob and oven, microwave, huge fridge/freezer and a good washing machine.
The two bedrooms were fine and the two bathrooms were also spot on with great showers in them.
The lounge has plenty of space with comfy chairs and good sized dining table. The wi-fi was a great extra bonus. TV and dvd player too.
The balcony is a good size and great for al-fresco dining and afternoon sun-bathing, as it faces the west so the sun finishes the day straight into it, with great sunsets happening behind the mountains opposite, another bonus to enjoy.
The views from the apartment are simply stunning, Cullera and its famous hill/mountain backdrop the awesome bay and beach, and the distant mountain ranges go off into the distance for countless miles.
The apartment complex is good, with very secure access and parking, lovely conscierge and grounds staff, good sized pool (closed to us sadly), and is right on the paseo and beach at the quietest corner of Cullera bay. There is a club/bar on the ground level where you can get drinks and food and watch the footy.
Nearby are bars and restaurants, and an excellent supermarket just 100 yards away.
Every Thursday there's a street market in the old town streets around the brilliant market halls, which open every day till lunch time, where excellent fresh produce can be found. When the street markets on there's a seller of the best churro's we've ever eaten, and many cake shops selling freshly baked bread and delicious cakes.
Every day at around 4pm the fishing fleet comes home, and you can go to the quay side and stand side by side with the fishermen as they unload their catch, follow it and see it sold in the auction house, then go along to the port shop and buy some, it does not come fresher or better.
The touring and walking for explorers like us is great around these parts, highly recommend a trip or two to Valencia, use the local train, its far cheaper than paying the parking for a days visit! The whole area is good to walk around, with signed routes and many interesting things to see and do.
Cullera itself is a nice old town grown up fast by modern development, giving you a mix of old and new styles, so something for everyone here. With the apartment being at the far end of the promenade its probably the best place to stay, and we whole heartedly recommend this to you.

Owner's Response: Peter

Thank you for your review. Its really nice that you have been able to show another facet of Cullera, due to the length of time of your stay. From what you have told me, you also really took advantage of some really spectacular walks and I hope you might come back another time to try out one the one over the top of the mountain to the monastery.
All the best. Alistair

Cullera's cool

I can simply say that the apartment and location was ideal for myself. I not only wished for a relaxing environment to stay in, i also wanted good access to a beach and I got both. To add to that, I,m a kite surfer and with 3 different launch locations within 15 mins walk, I was in heaven. The apartment itself offers a great view from a fantastic balcony. It is like a home from home and the owners , Alistair & Patricia, could not do enough to ensure that my independently booked holiday ran as smooth as possible. I for one, would not hesitate to stay at their apartment again.

Owner's Response: Chris- I am really pleased you had a great time. You are our first surfer.

Based on the number of people in the bay doing wind surfing, you have confirmed its a good spot for it. Its also a good place to learn with 2 schools, mind you you obviously don't need that if you can surf attached to a kite! Regards Alistair

Great apartment ideal for families, kids loved it. Great view from apartment straight over the sea and town. Swimming pool was ideal for kids and apartment went straight onto the beach. Lovely walk along the beach to all the bars and restaurants. Owner was very helpful answering any questions, details for apartment were excellent, concierge was spanish and very helpful. Nice bar below.
All in all great value holiday for a lovely relaxing break away. Have stayed in other places in Cullera before but this apartment was one of the best.
Thanks for great hol, Highly recommended!

Perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful holiday. The location couldn't be more perfect. Especially good for families. Beautiful beach with spectacular scenery, and close to shops so you can easily cook meals in the apartment and relax on the patio enjoying the view and drinking sangria.

There are very few restaurants apart from many pizza places, but I guess this is due to the very few foreign tourists in the area and I think the locals prefer to cook in their apartments. We drove up to Valaencia one day and found many good places to eat and also drove down Oliva and Granada one day, but could quite easily have spent the whole week just relaxing on the Cullera beach and kicking back on the patio of the apartment.

I recommend you take a Spanish dictionary as the locals speak very little english and even less when you are trying to pay a bill.

Also, we stayed in late April and were pleasently suprised to find the weather to be warm and perfect, although the water was a bit too cold to stay in any longer than a few minutes.

The real attraction is the location, however I should comment on the apartment. Extremely good value in my opinion. It's on the top floor and has a great view. The kitchen and bathrooms are excellent. The bedrooms small but adequate, and we found the beds a little uncomfortable, however perhaps the owners may replace them at some stage. The lounge room is huge! Great for when it's a bit hot or cool on the patio. Also there's next to no nightlife, apart from romantic moonlit strolls along the beach, so we spent most evening settling down to a DVD. The DVD player also plays Divx, so we took a load of moives with us thanks to the helpful tip from the owners about the lack of English television.

Overall I rate the the location and the apartment very highly and happily recommend it to all.

1/2 an hour south of Valencia airport, this resort is easy to reach. It is also only 1hr and 1/4 from Alicante Airport. If you do not hire a car you can either get a taxi transfer or go by train from Valencia central station. This takes just 20mins. There is then a bus every 15mins from the station that takes you round the beach. We recommend you hire a car you can then use it to visit the many attractions, the Water Parks, Valencia with Europe's biggest Aquarium and performing Dolphins, the Americas Cup Port around which the Valencia Formula 1 Street Circuit is set up and the shops and old city of Valencia.
